    How Community Events Work)

    Community events have two parts to them. The first is prizes you earn for yourself. The second is prizes that are earned as a community - everyone who is doing the event contributes once you hit 650 sunstones.

    In this community event you need to collect sunstones. This can be done by collecting from mines, monsters, mythical creatures, rocks, workshop, pyre tent, adventures. The sunstones won't appear in your inventory. They'll appear as a counter next to the sun icon on the right hand side of the screen. Click the icon to view your (and the community's) progress.

    Pyre Tent
    Level 1: 50 wood, 50 stones, 3 simple glues, 500 coins
    Level 2: 2 wood beams, 2 stone blocks, 2 simple glues, 1 flame flag
    Level 3: 3 wood beams, 3 stone blocks, 3 purple dyes, 1 flame flag
    Level 4: 2 fancy beams, 2 red dyes, 3 flame flags, 1 brazier
    Level 5: 3 fancy beams, 2 super glues, 5 flame flags, 2 braziers
    Level 6: 4 fancy beams, 3 purple dyes, 10 flame flags, 3 braziers
    Level 7: 6 fancy beams, 20 wool, 40 flame flags, 10 braziers
    Is level 7 the cap? If not, I'll add to this psot as posted.

    Flame Flags and Braziers are drops from the Pyre Tent only, and do NOT drop every time. But the prize for collecting 450 sun stones is 10 Flame Flags to help you along.

    For those who are asking, Braziers are ~33% droprate.

    Is anything else not working? (Just got in, trying to backread through a bunch of pages). Currently working on getting Sun Stones added to the Plume Hive adventure, the Iron Rich Rock, and the Lovecupine, hoping these will be out in the next couple days.
