Interested in Lore?
Come to the Silent Crow Outpost & Inn

Got a traveler to send through the Tangled Wood? Want to do business with the best of the worst? Maybe your ambassador just wants a fling and a new story in their bio? Look no further.
I'm always interested in lore exchanges and lore connections. I often sell lore dragons and will write custom bios if bribed lightly.

[/quote] Sorry still confused so maybe a small example timeline and say if correct or not. playerbase reaches end of first phase by 11:00 pm tonight fr time. The milestone phase ends automatically going into cooldown time (pause on contributions). Those that participated in milestone phase gets that phase's reward. Tomorrow (say 8:00 am fr time) staff manually starts up next milestone phase. This continues through next few days reaching end of final milestone/phase at 9:00 pm fr time. Phase does not automatically shut down this time though and transitions to when staff manually start end celebration. Once staff manually ends final contributions final phase reward and the big event final reward (for anyone that participated in atleast one milestone gets) are then handed out. Is this how things will look or am I still misunderstanding?

@MidnightLady05, even if the milestone threshold is met (bar completely filled), until a team member activates the next milestone, players can still turn in items and get participation credit for the current milestone.

you, little lamb, are not the Reckoning.
I think players should be given a chance to get rewards from milestones they might have missed.

Velya: "Hey looks like you missed the huge progress we made, but no worries, I will give you a brief for [ this amount ] of items."

[quote name="Kahvinporo" date="2021-06-08 13:32:25" ] I think players should be given a chance to get rewards from the other milestones as well in case they missed it.

[/quote] They need [i]one[/i] item to get a reward, and they can get it a dozen different ways, half of which take less than two minutes. If someone makes the choice not to look at FR for a full day during a known anniversary time, that's on them; if something happens to prevent them from it, that's life.

Oooh, I fully get it now. Basically, if we fill the bar tonight, there'll be only be a few days or however long staff allows it to continue until it's level 2, but if we start slacking on level 2, that'll take longer to advance.
