    Event Summary

    1. Community event - collect tabloids to get crowns, faerie chests and 5th individual prize Dahlia (trade ticket dropper)

    2. Upgrade the News Stand to Level 6 by getting materials to craft portraits/horoscope. You find the materials from chickens, trees, red mushies, farmhouse (spawn gnomes) and spawning skunks. Drops for the News Stand are not known yet.

    3. Daily goals to collect from animals, defeat 4 monsters, chop 4 'rocks' (personally I use the tree in a log) which reward Faerie Chests which you chop for bottled Faeries.

    4. Use the bottled Faeries in the Faerie Atrium to trade for prizes.

    For the side-goal to get chests, does anyone have a list of what is included in 'rocks'? I vaguely remember that old logs were included in 'rocks' ...

    I used tree logs and it counted.
