Other Events

@Aimster holds a racing event at KYDERBY each year, a reference to the Kentucky Kyderby. It is usually hosted by moderators and some non-moderators who run the event for 24 hours. A rare item, the Mint Julep is given out as a prize to the winner of the racing event. The best designed race track worlds also win a prize too. @Aimster chooses the top nine worlds from the forums.

STYX, now a former Moderator, used to hold a Fire Festival, which is a reference to the Philippines fire festival. It was held in the world FIRE, which he later sold as he was no longer a moderator, therefore, discontinuing the event. The prize for the world was a Golden Apple. Since the event is now discontinued, players can now obtain the Golden Apple from Golden Treasure Hoards.

There is always a possibility that another Moderator might request to host an event.
