Welcome to the Festivals guild page!

This is the main wiki home for coordinating our efforts in passing the Principles and maybe even some test passes for the Test of Festivals. The Guild hall is in Asyut at 1050, 2354, just east of zFree.

Thank you for visiting and contributing!

How do I test?

Participation Data

Upcoming Festivals Weekend

The festival for Osiris will be Saturday June 15, 2019, at 3 p.m. EST, 7 p.m. UTC.

The festival for (haven't decided yet) will be Sunday June 16, 2019, at 3 p.m. EST, 7 p.m. UTC.


Next Festival: The Osiris festival will be Saturday, June 15, 2019

I would like to have a longer list of beers we can brew for Osiris, but we are working with what we've got. Be prepared to:

  1. Test well ahead-of time. As early as possible. (aka now)
  2. Look at the beer database to see if your beer can be brewed.
  3. Do an individual festival, any type, and test again for your new Osiris requirement. This can be done every 16 server hours.

Its time to get ready for Osiris....Let the brewing begin! You will have one entire week to test for Osiris and reset your requirements as needed to get a brewable beer. Please do this as soon as possible.

  • Testing materials for Osiris: Item A: Flax (pillars), Item B: Barley (raw) (foci), and a partner to test with. Full Testing Instructions
  • Ambrosia made of : oil and beer (keep reading)
  • Altar Set up: surrounding an altar with (actively) growing flax, barley, onions, leeks, carrots, and garlic.

The majority of the beers for Osiris ambrosia will need to be individually brewed. This will take some time. To further complicate matters, there are beer flavor combinations (especially Spicy ones) that we have not yet discovered locations and recipes for. If you need one we cannot make, please do a mini-festival to reset your requirements, and test again. Resets can be done every 16 server hours.

"How do I know if my beer can be brewed?" The easiest way is to check Cegaiel's beer database. If it is not in the database, ask in festivals guild, or ask your favourite brewer if a recipe is possible. I have also attempted to make a compact list of all the Osiris combinations, with notes about whether or not there is a known recipe. Results here.... Osiris beer list

"I want to help, but I've never brewed beer before" I have attempted to write a guide for first-time beer brewers, with instructions for brewing from a recipe. It needs some polishing, but the text is there. Peacefulness has a collection of beer kettles and small barrels that she is willing to loan to those who need them. Grains and honey are available at the Festivals camp for those who need supplies.

Resetting your Osiris requirements: Successfully participating in ANY festival (pleasing a god) resets your requirements for ALL gods, including Osiris. You can please a god every 16 hours. Once you receive the "Pleased" pop-up, you can test for Osiris and find out what he wants from you. You can do a mini-festival all by yourself to reset your requirements. Dragging another Egyptian along is recommended, since it makes testing easier. If three players participate in your mini-festival, everyone will gain "percent satisfaction" points for that god.

So, you got an unbrewable beer for Osiris. You did a mini-festival and pleased a god to reset your requirements. You tested again. You have another unbrewable beer. (Sorry about your luck!) Wait at least 16 hours and do another mini-festival. You have the entire week to repeat this process as needed. Start early, reset every day, and retest after each god pleased.

Osiris beer planning

As in earlier tales, Osiris is asking for ambrosia made of beer that has two adjectives plus a malt-based flavor.
Possible adjectives are: Potent or Very Potent, Fruity, Spicy, Dry or Sweet, and Brown or Black,
Malt-based flavors are: Banana, Barley, Cherry, Cinnamon, Date, Honey, Nutmeg, and Orange.

Osiris beer brewers: First of all, thank you Very Very much for your assistance in this project. It is monumental!

When naming the successfully brewed beer, please keep the adjectives in the order listed on the "brewing results" window, and list all the adjectives the beer has. It is not necessary to include the flavor level (hint, noticeable, bold). If a player's requirements change, or they don't arrive for the festival, we have a better chance of being able to still use that ambrosia in the future.

Keeping that in mind, do also include the player's name at the end, so Joe will know that he's picked up the right one. Keeps down on the confusion and panic!

When looking at recipes, try to choose the one with the most adjectives. It gives the most versatile beer. So, if for some reason, Joe doesn't use it, it might not be completely wasted. If Joe needs an ambrosia made from Fruity Sweet Barley beer to please Osiris, its best to brew something with more adjectives and the final name might be as ridiculously long as:

Potent Fruity Spicy Sweet Brown Cinnamon Barley Beer for Joe.

When it is made into an ambrosia, please include all that information. A chest full of "Joe's ambro" will probably still have "Joe's ambro" in it when T9 gets here! I don't want to waste your time and efforts!

Beers which need recipes

The actual list (click here) is much longer, but so far, we do not know of brewing locations for combinations that include:

Spicy Banana, Spicy Cherry, Spicy Date, Spicy Orange, Potent Orange

Many Spicy beers require at least two yeasts to be producing flavors. They are very specialized locations, and we are still hunting for them, this tale. Some beers are just impossible to produce due to the composition of yeast qualities.
