Early Tale Festivals Prep

People have been asking about preparations that can be made for Festivals early in the tale, before the test opens. So, in preparation for Tale 8, here are some higher level skills you can polish! Of course, all this information is assuming that there will not be major changes to this test between tales. Demonstrating that Egypt was ready for Festivals during Tale 7 required a full year's worth of opening techs.

Successful preparation for the Test of Festivals has required players to be skilled in:

  • Alembic use (Ra)
  • Beer Brewing (Hathor and Osiris)
  • Cooking (Hathor)
  • Flower crossbreeding (Maat)
  • Indonesian Beehives (Bastet and Isis)
  • Paint Lab use (Bastet)
  • Silkworm Farming (Bastet)
  • Wine Making (Ra and Thoth)

Festivals Guild

The Festivals Guild has been established for the pursuit of the Test of Festivals.

The Guild is located at: 1373, 2942 in River Plains.

Membership is open. Apply at guildhall.

Osiris Festival

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.

  • Testing materials for Osiris: Item A: Flax (pillars), Item B: Barley (raw) (foci), and a partner to test with.
  • Ambrosia made of : oil and beer (keep reading)
  • Altar Set up: five kinds of actively growing crops, choose from: Cabbage, Leeks, Garlic, Onions, Carrots, Barley, Flax. "Ready to harvest" qualifies for this test

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 this happens to you, please do a mini-festival to reset your requirements and test again.

"How do I know if my beer can be brewed?" Unfortunately, there is no beer database this tale. I have attempted to make a compact list of all the Osiris combinations, with notes about whether or not there is a known recipe. Results here.... Is there a recipe for this Osiris beer?
Here is the full listing of T7 actual beer recipes

"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. Particularly easy gods to please include Isis, Maat, and Thoth, but premade goodies are available for all seven gods. Choose the one you need, and contact a festivals elder if you would like a hand. There are many players who do not have 100%, and even more who will participate in a mini-festival to help you out. Just ask!

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.

We CAN do this, and determined players WILL pass this test!

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 assigning recipes for each player's requirement, I will 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, I may ask you 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 T8 gets here! I don't want to waste your time and efforts!

Rituals Summary

Each God requires a different ritual, which typically includes:

  1. Sacrificing a specific Ambrosia
  2. After having completed a specific action or personal preparation
  3. Within a specific setup around a common altar (or spirit brasier, for Ra).

NOTE: Items in italics in the table below will have avatar-specific requirements and must be determined before each festival.

Ambrosia Action Altar Setup
Festival of Bastet Aromatic Honey Camel Milk Wear Silk Ribbons 21 Jugs of Camel Milk
Festival of Hathor VP Beer Cobra Blood Eat meal raising three Stats 3 each Sheep, Rabbits, Chickens (drop each animal separately, not in piles)
Festival of Isis Aromatic Honey Oil Apply Simple Perfume 7 Glass Torches 1
Festival of Maat Rose of Ra petals Honey 21 flaming Ritual Torches
Festival of Osiris Beer Oil Dress in all black Growing 5 of 7 crops (Cabbage, Leeks, Garlic, Onions, Carrots, Barley, Flax)
Festival of Ra* Wine Dates Burn five Spirits 7 7000-wood lit Bonfires
Festival of Thoth Wine Ink 21 Beetles

*Ra ambrosias are sacrificed on a Spirit Brasier, not the common altar.
1 - Because Glass Torches are a permanent fixture, many regions will have a set location already prepared for this ritual. Be sure to bring 10 oil per torch you are lighting.

Determining Festival Requirements

Once you have started the test at a University of Worship, you and a partner need to go to any Common Altar. Each God requires two different items, and each partner must have one of each to complete the ritual.

NOTE: Left/right represent the statue's left/right for all altar rituals. Easiest way to ensure success is to stand behind the alter and facing it. Then your left/right is the same as the statue's.

  1. Person 1 puts item A on the left pillar.
  2. Person 2 puts item A on the right pillar.
  3. Person 1 puts item B on the left focus.
  4. Person 2 puts item B on the right focus.
  5. Person 1 meditates
  6. Person 2 meditates.

Both players will then be told what they need to do to please the God.

God Item A (pillar) Item B (focus) Confirmed for T7?
Bastet Honey Camel Milk yes
Hathor Male Rabbit Female Rabbit yes
Isis Honey Oil yes
Maat Linen Canvas Yes
Osiris Flax Barley (raw) yes
Ra Medium Quartz Medium Topaz yes
Thoth Papyrus Paper Candle yes

Materials are not consumed and can be removed once each player has received their instructions.

Everyone receives different instructions, so all people wishing to participate in a festival must do this ritual. If you successfully please a God in a festival, your requirement for all Gods will change, so it's often best to bring supplies and re-test at the festival altar.
