This weeks update!
Meet Birkir and Hanami! March 16, 2022
Hey StarFam! Jorvegian folklore abounds with tales of tree spirits appearing as horses and nearly every tree has its own story.
Magical Tree Horses ★The Birkir is the horse of birch trees. Encountering a Birkir is a sign of a new beginning after overcoming hardship. They are most common in springtime and regularly aid lost travelers. The Birkir takes after the lithe Marwari, as straight and slender as the trunks of birch trees. Make one part of your family for 950 Star Coins.
★The Hanami belong to cherry trees and are a symbol of rebirth and herald of spring. Like blossoms, they are a reminder to treasure the beauty of today for it may be wilted and gone tomorrow, but will return again. To the untrained eye, the Hanami appear as a regular Percheron working horse, but to those who are magically inclined, their flowing flowery manes and bark-like coat are a sight to behold. Make one part of your family for 850 Star Coins.
As companions, they are both steadfast and fearless, taking their rider into whatever adventures await. Birkir and Hanami can be found with Gary Goldtooth at his usual camp in Moorland, close to Old Jasper’s Barn. They are staying in Jorvik until the Wednesday update April 6th.
Spider Pets Bitey the birch spider is on a mission to eat through anything and everything in sight. No snack is safe, whether it be a bag of chips or the saddlebag it sits in. Despite their all-consuming appetite, Bitey has a heart of gold and will not make a meal out of you or your horse. Cherry the chomper has a more refined palate than their friend Bitey. They can only be tempted to take one nibble of a meal no matter how decadent. With this picky demeanor you would expect a royally sour attitude, but rest assured Cherry is as lovely as the tree they are named after.
Bitey and Cherry cost 350 Star Coins each. They can be found with Gary Goldtooth at his usual camp in Moorland, close to Old Jasper’s Barn.
What about Birch and Sakura? Birkir and Hanami were inspired by the magical horses Birch and Sakura! These were one-time magical horses released for a limited time back in 2019. As Birch and Sakura have been requested so often, we decided to make new horses inspired by the original, while still honoring the promise of keeping them exclusive. We promise we will bring back Birkir and Hanami at some point, though!
Name Change Discount Did you name your horse Piepie and feel like it doesn’t suit them anymore?? Feeling more like a Moonmoon instead? Well now is your chance to change it! We’re adding a temporary discount to renaming your horse! For the next eight weeks, the price will be 65 Star Coins. The Notary can be found in several places in Jorvik and will happily change your horse's name for you.
Reminder! Our Akhal-Tekes and Appaloosa Horses from Generation 1.5 that currently can be found at Ferdinand's Horse Market are leaving us for greener pastures. During the Wednesday update on April 6th, they will leave Jorvik and not be available for purchase from then on.
While we love each and every one of our old horses, we sometimes need to do some changes to ensure the game can run at the best possible performance. One of these changes will be to slowly phase out our very oldest horses. The Akhal-Teke and the Appaloosa from Generation 1.5 will be the first to get their well-deserved retirement!
If you already have purchased any of these horses, no need to worry! The horses will stay unchanged in your safe ownership. Please note that they will not be further supported with bug fixes, updates, or new tack !
Video of the week! Every week we’re sharing one of our fun videos - sometimes a brand new one, sometimes a nostalgic throwback! Here's the video of the week:
Coming NEXT WEEK! Finally you can change your horse’s age AND choose their gender!
Have a great week!
Love from your Star Stable Team ♥
