We are planning events throughout the month of August to celebrate the 19th anniversary of AVATAR MUD! HoGs, mini-quests, Imm quest events (e.g Push Your Luck), some surprise events, quizzes and more besides!
The list below contains events for which we have a fixed date. There are more events than this, but due to work and other real-world complications, they will either be announced nearer the time, or sprung upon you by surprise. :D
- 16th of August - The Sundered Race
Few remember the fearsome power of the mindflayer empire before it fell to the slave revolt led by the Giths but some things which have been forgotten are not truly gone. Lord Quest + new temp area. 16 August 2014. Death, fun, loot.
Scheduled "Hand of God" Events
Be on the lookout for mini-hogs and unscheduled HoGs throughout August. The first surprise HoG was held on August 1st! Log in, or miss out!

Racial boons every Saturday
After polling was conducted on outland.org, it looks like Saturday has won for the 'boon day'. All races receive an xp boost, plus 3 other boons (for instance spell damage, bonus to archery, chance to hit more often, etc). Gains are NOT affected. Races will be divided as follows (see HELP SIZE):
- August 9th is small races.
- August 16th is medium races.
- August 23rd is large races.
- August 30th is very large races + all fdk + all imp.
The boon begins shortly after 12:00:01 AM and lasts until 11:59:59 PM EST. If you are interested to see what each race gets, check the outland.org anniversary news item (click 'Read More').
