War for the Obelisk



TABLE OF CONTENTS NC GUIDES PLOT LINKS GRAPHICS:
Victory
The obelisk has been opened and The Sway was the first to get in! So what was inside the obelisk? If you visit the Battleground of the Obelisk you will get a popup with this bright yellow thing called the Oracle.

At long last, the obelisk is opened. It appears as though the 'what' inside is actually a 'who'.

It is the Oracle. You know this because she whispers it in your mind. The power you sought is within her -- a bright, glowing spirit, she has survived the ages in a magic slumber. She is a teller of visions, a solver of riddles, a seer of seers. Long has she awaited this day. All other noise fades away as she whispers again in your thoughts, promising another chance to prove yourself on the Battleground.

Nearby, your leader beckons you to come over. A little worse for wear after the battle, your faction has set up a garrison to reward those loyal to their cause. It looks like you might get to share in the spoils.


After you click out of the Oracle popup, you will see a new countdown clock that says:
The truce ends in: with a timer that ends on Sunday April 28th night.
In the news it gives us this random hint that could have to do with the new countdown: The light is blinding! It spreads across the battlefield in an instant, and that's when you know. The apparitions were a test -- a test that bears rewards, but not for long. It seems obvious to you now that any Sway should make their way to the door. Others will get the chance to prove their worth soon enough...

Tyrannia has also gotten a nice new makeover.


Basic Item Rewards
On the Oracle page you will also see a banner saying the Sway Wins! If you were on one of the losing factions you will get rewarded with a random item that can be anything from a Fire Tipped Spear to a Tomato Bomb. If you were on the sway you get 4 random items.

Sway Swag: Boons
If you were on the sway you are also able to pick this new thing called a boon. There are 5 normal boon options and 2 premium boons (if you are premium). You are able to pick 1 normal boon and 1 premium boon (if you are premium). Once you pick a boon you are not able to change it. You have to pick a boon before the countdown clock is done, and your boon also ends when the countdown clock reaches 0. So the sooner you pick a boon the more benefits you will gain from it.

These boons are little extra things that help out around the site. More information on what each boon does specifically soon. Testing and confirmation is still needed.

Normal Boons

Cheaper By the Dozen
By some force that defies explanation, the rules of the Stock Market bend to your will.

What it does: This boon will allow you to buy stocks priced as low as 10nps each stock, instead of the usual minimum of 15nps in the stock market. If you buy stocks daily, and have a set price you thold them til, this would save you 5k a day, and isnt a bad option if you none of the other boons are up your alley.

That Millionaire Feeling
And what a feeling it is. You are mysteriously compelled to use this gift at the Trading Post.

What it does: It appears from the boards that this boon allows you to offer up to 1mil nps on a trade instead of the 800k max there usually is. We have not seen screenshot confirmation. This is a pretty pointless boon since it does not actually save you any nps or give you any advantage since you can just use auctions to bid 1mil nps.

Refreshed Quest Request
The faeries sense something within you and offer a second chance.

What it does: This boon allows refresh at the faerie quest page for a different faerie quest when you have an active faerie quest. You can only refresh each faerie quest you get one time for a new one, but if you get multiple faerie quests, you can refresh each one of them one time each for a better quest. This works with faerie fortune cookies that give you 1 guaranteed faerie quest per day. If you are trying for a fountain faerie quest and have a lot of time to spend running around the site in hopes of getting random faerie quests (or can get a faerie quest fortune cookie in the NC Mall) then this is a pretty decent boon to pick.

Black Market Goods
Shopkeepers don't offer their finest goods to just anyone, but there's something about you...

What it does: This boon will highlight certain items when they restock with a yellow flamey border. The exact qualifications for what items are highlighted and what ones are not is unknown.

Bank Bribery
You feel uplifted and your presence puts the bank manager in a delightfully good mood.

What it does: This boon will increase your daily bank interest by another 3% from what the daily % you get is. Depending on how many nps you have hoarded away in your bank, this could be a very nice difference over the course of a week, and is a pretty good boon to pick.

Premium Boons

Full Pockets
The scratchcard hums in your hands and you feel luckier. This is not the Space Faerie's doing....

What it does: This boon will increase the amount of NP awarded from your Space Faerie Scratchcards. If you win an item from your scratchcard instead, you will also be awarded an additional prize of 1,000 NP. If you have more than one unscratched card, it will apply to all of them.

Premium Dreamium
You feel drawn to the Games Room, determined to leave richer than you arrived.

What it does: This boon doubles the maximum number of scores you can send in the Premium Featured Game from 3 to 6. During Games Galore, however, you are only allowed one extra score sent (for a total of 6 scores sent instead of doubling the scores sent from 5 to 10).



Prize Shop
The prize shop is also open! When you visit the Mysterious Obelisk - Prize Shop you are rewarded with a number of things. If you partcipated you are rewarded with a site theme and an avatar.
