Adult player here. Most certainly an older player. Not gonna say how old though; its just a number anyway. Let's just say old enough.
I picked up SSO on a whim after leaving one job, studying for a certification to get a new job, and seeking that new job. I had decided I needed a quiet game and well, I love racing games and always wanted one involving horses. SSO had it all.
So no embarrassment needed. We welcome all players here, no matter how many times they've orbited the sun.

Yes indeed, plenty of older players enjoy SSO. I'm 33, with two little ones who are constantly into mischief, so I wanted a game outside of my usual MMORPGs that doesn't require me to find a 'safe' place to stand if I need to rush away in a hurry. And while I rarely get to play during the day because of said crumb munchers, it is still a great way to relax and chill out after they've gone to bed. And as an added bonus, its great that SSO has its own unique quest and stories as well.
“Do you give the horse its strength or clothe its neck with a flowing mane? Do you make it leap like a locust, striking terror with its proud snorting? It paws fiercely, rejoicing in its strength, and charges into the fray. It laughs at fear, afraid of nothing; it does not shy away from the sword. In frenzied excitement it eats up the ground; it cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds." Job 39:19-24

We're also over 20, not that much over, but still over 20.
And we kinda have a feeling that you enjoy the game more if you are older. Especially the part where you have to repeat the dailies to get reputation, the younger ones would get bored more easily and leave, while we (the older ones) just work through the dailies. But that's just what we think.
We're actually not twins. Just in the game...

Hi, I'm over 20 (by quite a way) and have found a reasonable amount of adults play. I initially started playing it due to coming down with an illness and needing something to do that doesn't require thinking.

Hi! I'm 22. I play horse riding related games since I was a kid so when I found SSO I immediately fell in love. I can't ride or own a horse irl so collecting and riding virtual horses seems like a nice (and cheaper) substitute ^^
feliciawinterlord: I think they mentioned that the race that goes down the slide will come next week. But same...i really wish they would add more things instead of the same old every year

Luna Autumndew: Ah yes. The race they added last year was the one where you go above the Winter Village, which is available this week.

rubyskywalker: Is the new horse what the sneak peek below the news post mentioned... a Fawncy?
Dec 5, 2019 14:13:51 GMT 10
rubyskywalker: Theres a speedpaint on video of a Fawncy! I think it's what it will look like or similar. Search for it if you're curious
Dec 5, 2019 14:16:43 GMT 10
feliciawinterlord: I'm wondering if the Fawncy is a Jorvik Wild...there's a spoiler video on YT for the tinkers, and it shows a new Andalusian
Dec 5, 2019 21:00:18 GMT 10
feliciawinterlord: Maybe a fawn JW, that would be cute and fitting for Christmas
Dec 5, 2019 21:03:14 GMT 10
feliciawinterlord: The Advent calendar starts December 12th, and we have in previous years gotten a SC code around the 24th or 25th. I can't remember the exactly which day we get it, but we usually get one
Dec 9, 2019 8:01:29 GMT 10
stefaniesilverback: Yes, we usually get a redeem code for 300 sc on the 24th or 25th.
Dec 11, 2019 5:27:56 GMT 10
Luna Autumndew: According to the past, it's been 300 SC on December 25th every year.
Dec 11, 2019 7:41:23 GMT 10
rubyskywalker: I hope it is 300 SC or I won't be able to get the Fawncy!
Dec 12, 2019 2:43:22 GMT 10
Luna Autumndew: If it is less than 300 SC, I think SSO community will riot

The Yule Goats Are Loose! December 11, 2019
Hi StarFam! The holiday spirit is still going strong on Jorvik, and while the Cloudmills have turned to some holiday crafting, a new magic horse has appeared in the Winter Village!
Yule goats on the run! It’s a Jorvik tradition to make your own Yule Goats every year, and the Cloudmill siblings Alex and James are making sure to keep the tradition alive but it’s almost getting a bit out of hand! Suddenly, the Yule Goats are coming to life as well and are hopping and skipping around on the island like there’s no tomorrow!
The source of the Yule Goats’ new-found liveliness seems to spring from giant magic portals appearing around the different areas in Silverglade. Groups of Yule Goats are popping up around them - but whenever you’ll try to approach the goats, their babies will run off! Oops. Better bring them back and reunite the family!
Magic portals? You-le goat to be kid-ding me! When you have brought the baby goats back to the big goat, you’ll be rewarded with a Yule Goat Spirit. These spirits can be traded for some epic rewards next to each magic portal, where you’ll find shops run by a huge Yule Goat!
Portals have appeared in five areas - Moorland, Fort Pinta, Silverglade, Everwind Fields and Valedale. Every day, 8 giant goats will appear from each portal, but only one will appear in each area at a time. When you’ve rescued all of the baby goats for one giant goat, the next giant goat will appear after a few seconds. If you move from one area to another (even if you haven’t finished the set you’re currently working on) then you only need to wait a few seconds for the new giant goat to appear. Keep an eye on the portal once you complete a goat set - you might get a clue as to when the next big goat appears! That’s not all though - if you find all goats in an area for the day, you’ll gain a portal point. When you have enough portal points, you’ll get even more rewards!
There’s a grand total of 22 beautiful rewards to collect - ranging from cozy holiday sweaters over a cool winter trail ride outfit to beautiful walking pets!
Bring the baby goats back to the giant goats to gain Yule Goat Spirits! Guess you can’t wait to get started now, huh? Go find Alex in Moorland Stables right away, then!
To be able to join the Yule Goat hunt, you must be a Star Rider and have completed the quest where you help Thomas Moorland retrieve stolen documents from a masked rider. The Yule Goat hunt will be active until January 8.
Meet Fawncy! Behind Santa’s house in the Winter Village, the Brinicle has found a new friend - a wild Fawncy has appeared!
Fawncy is one of the beautiful magic horses of Jorvik, and it’s believed to originate from the Meander area up north of the North Link. This skittish fellow has a heart rate twice as fast as a normal horse and has evolved to be almost completely odorless to better avoid forest predators.
This deer-like sweetheart blends in perfectly amongst Andalusian horses while in populated areas of Jorvik while its magic shines through in wild places. You wouldn’t believe it if you first saw Fawncy in the woods up north, but it actually knows how to perform a perfect Spanish Walk, just like the Andalusians! To perform the Spanish Walk, hit spacebar while your Fawncy is standing still.
You will not be able to change the mane style of your Fawncy - but it is resistant to the harsh cold of Dino Valley!
Fawncy can be adopted for 950 Star Coins and will remain for sale in the Winter Village along with Brinicle until January 8.
The Bonus Shop A new item is available in the Moorland Bonus Shop to all of you who got Star Rider by one-time payment!
The Winter Village Ride into winter and head out to the Winter Village as often as you can until January 8!
Coming NEXT WEEK It’s time for the long-awaited Generation 3 take on our beloved Tinker Horse!
Have a great week!
Hugs from the Star Stable Team ♥
