Valentine’s Day 2019 Event: A Tail Of Young Love
School is back in session at White River Academy, but you haven’t yet found anyone to go to the Winter’s End Dance with...

Valentines 2019 release

"For this year’s event, take on the role of a student at the illustrious White River Academy. Interact with a variety of dragons, and hopefully find yourself a partner for the Winter’s End Dance.

And of course, be sure to grab these new Valentine’s eggs. They’ll be around from now until the end of Feb. 16 (three full days), so get hunting.


A "Reset Progress" button was available so players were able to explore all possible avenues. Players could advance text by pressing Enter or Space, and likewise use these to proceed text or make a choice. W and S or arrow keys allowed for the selection of a choice. Unlike previous events, the player's name was automatically set to their scroll name, and while this event featured "days" as a measure, all chapters were available at all times to players while the event was active.

There were 7 possible avenues to choose from, each one having its own main character; a dragon from the story which you can befriend. Depending on the options chosen, they may end up going to the Winter's End Dance with you as your date. Each choice made collates how much a dragon ends up liking you by Day 7, so it is possible to choose negative-impacting choices and still go to the Dance with that dragon.
