    3. You do not need to finish neighbour requests in part 10 - you only miss out on the 300 coin reward if you're stuck on neighbor requests. You only need finish upgrading.
    4. Once you get your free Alicolt as the prize you have the ability to purchase additional ones in the market for 500 gems.

    congratulations to those who finished. The official drops are in post 1 and 2 for the Moon Base and Alicolt.

    Note 2 about Goal 2: The special drops and crafts will disappear once you upgrade the Moon Crystal.

    Note about Goal 3: Once you upgrade to Level 5, the Alicolt will go to your storage/inventory. Make sure you are on the All tab. If it isn't there, please force close your game and then it will be there.

    Galloping Through the Galaxy! - Dialogue


    Part 1
    Old Thomas: Young Ruler, I am glad to have run into you. I have some news.
    Ruler: what is it, Old Thomas?
    Old Thomas: You may have noticed I have been confined to my quarters lately. I have been studying the stars, and recently noticed quite the alignment.
    Ruler: Alignment?
    Old Thomas: Yes, the stars are aligning quite perfectly to summon an Alicolt. It happens once ever few hundred years.
    Ruler: What's an Alicolt?
    Old Thomas: A celestial being, similar to our own Alicorn. They gallop through the heavens above. If we build a Moon Crystal in time for the stars to align, we may be able to summon one. Search around the kingdom for anything new, interesting things may begin to happen.


    Part 2
    Ruler: Hey Ivy... I see you've found the Star Dust appearing around the kingdom.
    Ivy: Sure have! I heard you and Old Thomas are building a Moon Crystal! I think I have the perfect solution to strengthen it too. Then we can summon a cute, adorable, sweet little baby Alicolt!
    Ruler: You've heard about the Alicolt too?
    Ivy: Only in stories, but Old Thomas swears he's seen one through his telescope before. I thought he was just staring at those bright stars a little too long, but maybe he was right!


    Part 3:
    Old Thomas: To give the Moon Crystal more power, we should find items from our world. Think of items that being life -- or give us energy.
    Ruler: Hmm, what about Water?
    Old Thomas: Perfect, Young Ruler. Your mind is on the right track. I have also noticed a dusty powder forming on some of the Mushrooms in the kingdom. I think it may. E Moon Dust, caused by the stars' alignment. Perhaps it could be of use to us?
    Ruler: I'll see what I can find!


    Part 4:
    Ruler: Hey Ivy, how're things coming along?
    Ivy: I think I've come up with an even stronger potion! Those celestial shards you made, can I see one?
    Ruler: Sure...
    Ivy: Just gonna add this in here and...*poof*
    Ruler: Whoa! Look at that glow...
    Ivy: Perfect! The Celestial Potion recipe has been cracked!


    Part 5:
    Ruler: Alright so lots of strange things have stared happening as these stars align. I wonder if there's anything else we can find to strengthen the Moon Crystal.
    Ivy: Oh, look at the Pond over there!
    Ruler: What is that?
    Ivy: It looks like...Moon Beams. Quick...go grab me a bottle! We'll catch some and use them on the Moon Crystal!
    Ruler: Wait -- catch Moon Beams?
    Ivy: Yeah, haven't you ever caught a Moon Beam before?
    Ruler: Can't say that I have...
    Ivy: Well, there's a first time for everything!


    Part 6:
    Ruler: Hey, Old Thomas.
    Old Thomas: Hello there, Young Ruler.
    Ruler: Any sightings of the Alicolt?
    Old Thomas: Not yet, but I have seen many trails of Star Dust in the night sky. I feel one must be nearby. It is quite exciting.
    Ruler: Sounds like there's lots of neat stuff up there.
    Old Thomas: Care to take a look?
    Ruler: Sure! Wow! How beautiful.
    Old Thomas: Our world is tied closely to the stars, which is why their alignment is affecting the kingdom. They are almost fully aligned, we had better get the Moon Crystal in working order.


    Part 7:
    The Baron: What is this hideous thing you've built in the middle of my kingdom?
    Ruler: What? The Moon Crystal?
    The Baron: Whatever it is, it's taking up valuable space! Don't think you're going to get by building such a structure without paying the proper taxes.


    Part 8:
    Ruler: The Moon Crystal is getting more powerful by the minute!
    Ivy: I think it's going to need some star power though.
    Ruler: Star power?
    Ivy: The stars hold a very special power, enough to summon something like the Alicolt. Let's see what magical things we can find in our own kingdom! Then we canmake the Moon Crystal powerful enough to summon it here!


    Part 9:
    Ivy: Ruler! I've got it!
    Ruler: What is it Ivy?
    Ivy: Hot Peppers!
    Ruler: Huh?
    Ivy: The thing missing from my recipe was Hot Peppers! But I made something much greater than a potion.
    Ruler: Whoa! What is that?
    Ivy: It's a Star Fragment! Just what we need for the Moon Crystal!


    Part 10:
    Old Thomas: The stars have finally aligned, Young Ruler. If we add the finishing touches, we'll be able to summon the Alicolt to our kingdom. I think the last thing we will need is more Moon Stone. The powerful stone can focus the power of the Moon Crystal's magic.
    Ruler: You got it, Old Thomas!

    The end.

    A shooting star grants the wish of all who see it! Look out into the starry night - what do you see? If you glimpse even the slightest movement, follow the trail! Chase the stars to the moon and back, and bring home the galaxy’s most prized creature! Only the most kind and attentive of souls can ever hope to see this celestial being’s grace. Listen for the softest hoofsteps, and search for the slightest sparkle! These things will surely lead the way to your new friend…

    [==Update requires Level 17+, and is live from 09/01 until 09/12 @ 4pm.==]

    Spoiler: show
    I've been playing a game! Have you figured out this week's answer? The answer is: ALICOLT

    Love these events. The Alicolt is quite a beautiful creature. Got the star dust from about four different types of trees.
