Subject: August - It's Time for Tesseracts.
Appropriately enough for the events currently unfolding in Starmourn, our sale this August is tesseracts. If you were here in May, you'll recall that tesseracts are a choose-your-own-adventure type of prize, giving you a few different categories and colors to pick from.
For the uninitiated, a quick explanation:
The tesseracts come in various colors, all of them starting off as blue. You may TURN <tesseract> <RED|GREEN|BLUE|GOLD|RAINBOW> to alter its color and the odds and kinds of prizes that are inside. Before we get to the prize list, let's look at the colors:
- BLUE : Standard, all of the prizes, balanced odds
- RED : Double the chance to get artifacts, but also double the chance to get credits and marks
- GREEN : Double the chance to get items, lower chance of everything else
- GOLD : TURN-ing to gold requires 5 tesseracts and combines all 5 of them into one. Prizes become 5x and there's only credits and artifacts inside. The Gold tesseract also contains a couple of arties that aren't available in the other tesseracts
- RAINBOW : TURN-ing to rainbow requires 5 tesseracts and combines all 5 of them into one. When you open this one, EVERYONE IN THE ROOM with you will receive a prize from the BLUE tesseract pool, including yourself. So gather your friends in the room before you open these up. If you get more than five people in the room, you're basically gaining value for free!
NOTE: You can freely change the color any number of items before opening, but NOT if you turned to gold/rainbow. Those stay locked. They will also not be consumed by other gold/rainbow tesseracts.
You might have already guessed it, but our theme this month is all about manipulating space and time. Here's our prize pool!
Singularity Theory - Captaincy, Hacking, and Base
When your character has less of the listed experience type than the highest amount of that experience type on your account, you gain 50% more of that experience type. For example, if you already have a badass hacker and win this artie with someone still starting out, the hacking experience you gain for that character will double.
