How cute did these turn out? If you are a guild member, or former guild member who paid and would like to collect your outfit, please find me in game or email me to set up a time to collect your Official Sailoria gear!

Just a quick (and loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong overdue update)

You will now find us under the guild name Sailor Senshi on the US server and Sailor Scouts on the International server.  If you are interested in joining, please email me, or PM me in game.

Also, there is a new event from Sanrio just in time for Halloween!

We have a new event for you HKO fans – share your best costumes for Halloween in Hello Kitty Online and get a chance to win tons of SLP! In HKO’s Spooky Makeover, we want to see how you dress up for trick-or-treating in-game! Your costume could be scary, cute, fun, or eccentric! Will you dress up as a vampire, a skeleton, a ghost or a witch? Or will you be creative and make your own costume ensemble? This is a fun way to earn Sanrio Loyalty Points (you can use Sanrio Loyalty Points to buy cool HKO stuff in the Item Mall!).

There will be a Grand Prize Winner and 5 Runner-Up Winners for best costumes in-game!

Each submission will earn you 500 Sanrio Loyalty Points. Grand Prize and Runner-Up Winners will earn 5,000 and 3,000 points, respectively.

As many of you know, the Sailor Scouts guild has opened up once again on the North America server, and we are all having a wonderful time! Because it is a closed beta, we probably won’t get to keep our characters, but it is a good chance to see how things have changed and explore some new areas. If you would like to join us, please stop a scout and ask for an invite in game, otherwise I hope to see you all in open beta.

I am working on revamping the blog roll and making new buttons, so in the meantime if anyone is looking for our guild links or member blogs please see rippleclouds post here:

http://blog.sanriotown.com/ripplecloud:hellokitty.com/hko-entries-list/hko-sailor-scouts-guild-links/

See you all in game!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to make sure that you were all aware that there will be a new closed beta!  Register with the Aeria games website so that we can all play the North American beta when it becomes available. I’m not sure exactly when that will be, but hopefully very soon! I look forward to playing with you all again!

Here is the site: http://hko.aeriagames.com/signup

And here is what it says when you sign up:

Thank you for signing up for the Hello Kitty Online North America closed beta! You are now on the Hello Kitty Online North America closed beta list. Please note that there are a limited amount of spaces at this stage, and we will inform you if you are chosen. Participation in the closed beta is based on your sign-up date. But don’t worry if you’re not selected for the closed beta, we will be in touch soon about the launching of open beta.

We look forward to seeing you in game!

So I would like to this in 2 separate blog posts. One for the first part of the happy hearts reunion and one for the second (the extension/ charity event).

In this first part, I want to talk about testing the new farming system, which was one of the main reasons for this beta test/event.

For those of you who didn’t get to play with us in this beta, the farming system was revamped a bit.  They made it so that we could purchase new farm deeds and with each more expensive deed, a new farm level. With each seed level corresponding to which farm you could grow on. For instance If I buy a level 2 farm, I can’t grow level 3 seeds, but I can grow level 1 and level 2  seeds. I can’t recall all of the farm choices (each level of farm has a few different layout options)  or seed levels. Those of you played in closed beta will remember some of the farm choices we had then,  it’s the same sort of thing.

Another one of the major changes to the farm system was the fact that others, even people outside of you guild, could now help fertilize, water ( a new feature) and harvest your ripe crops. Others may not help you plant or destroy old crops. All the things harvested by your farm slaves helpers will go directly to the farm owners inventory. I really liked this new feature and found it very useful, especially since they took away our pause button. Yes that’s right. We could no longer pause our farms to harvest and the growth/ripening/death rate was extremely accelerated to correspond to a “day meter”. Now your crops are governed by a visible bar in the upper right hand corner of your screen that cycles through the day times on your farm.  Towards the latter part of the beta, they added a huge disturbing sun graphic that would pop up and disable your mouse commands on the screen when it became a new day on your farm. I seriously hope they hear the outcry of the in game farming community and please please make the bad sun go away xD

They also made it so that each time the farm owner leaves, everyone will be booted out of the farm. This includes instances where the farm owner accidentally goes into her house while harvesting crops. Yes it did happen to me xD and it wouldn’t be so bad if people didn’t have to ask and wait for permission from the farm owners to enter farms now.

I hope I have done a well enough job outlining the new farming changes here (maybe not very objectively) and please feel free to add anything I have forgotten, as well as let me know how you guys feel about all the new features. Overall, I think a lot of the changes were a positive step in right direction, and I can see that they have a lot of potential to them.  Especially if Starrfire is on your farm and she is excited to tell you what to do help you harvest your crops and try out the new farming system xD  (see screen shot for example)

Another bit they changed back to the way things were in CB was the pet cards. Each creature now drops a card that you may collect and add to your beat encyclopedia, and you may use the cards to equip the creatures as pets. I was really happy about this, because in CB I had a bee for a pet, and I was able to so again. However all the pets still talk and it can be a bit annoying how frequently they talk. They do say some pretty amusing things though.

They also seem to get hungry really often! Hopefully there will be another type of food in the next beta that will keep them full for longer.  Again, if I have forgotten any change in this beta that anyone would like to add, please feel free to do so in the comments below. I will work on that second half blog post as soon as possible!

Just in case you haven’t heard yet, we will all be able to play together again in just a couple of days!

From February 12-17, 2009, HKO will host Happy Hearts, an exclusive Founders-only event in which players can get together once more with their friends, take on exciting new quests, and be first to experience some major enhancements to the game!”

Also, “HKO will open its doors to Founders on February 12, 2009 at 22:00 EST, and the rest of Sanriotown can join the fun on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2009 at 20:00 EST.”

How exciting! We will be able to meet new friends and play in game with them as well!  Unfortunately, it won’t work for european non-founders :(

Just a note on the designer depot:

ripplecloud is making a poll in the Sailoria forum so that we can all vote on the design that we want to submit for designer depot. Everyone make sure to check that out when she puts it up :D

If you have a design that you would like to submit for consideration , please email it to me or ripplecloud, or feel free to post it here and I will make sure she gets it.

Idea for the guild uniform:

Or we may change it to a top hat. That seemed to be a very popular idea last night. I wish you guys had been on in the morning when we were trying to sort this all out  >_<

The shirt:

I sort of liked the tie like that, let me know what you think!
