==== Sky Palace Specials Ending Soon ====
+
==== Slushy Conditions Slow Down Express ====
Hunters throughout the Kingdom have been utilizing the powerful rocket booster technology invented by Ronza to reach new heights at the Floating Islands! The special supplies assembled by the King to jump start this exploration are beginning to wane and are nearly out of stock. Today is the final day to pick up the special Sky Palace Starter and Palace Crasher Bundles before they're gone.
+
The first signs of slush have appeared as the Festive Comet slowly begins to melt. Ol' King Coal is becoming deterred by the constant meddling from hunters driving his profits deeper and deeper into the red. The muddy, less-than-festive ground conditions have caused mice to no longer carry Great Winter Hunt supplies.

==== Charting What's Ahead ====
 
With Rocket Booster technology enabling exploration of even higher altitudes, the Floating Islands Cartographer has been busy studying flight logs to understand the supply lines and logistics of the Empyrean Empire. Using this recognizance, the Cartographer is confident they'll be able to chart a new type of treasure map!
 
 
 
This new map will involve up to five hunters exploring Low Altitude Islands, High Altitude Islands, and the Sky Palace itself in search of clues. Tracking down all the clues will reveal the location of an especially valuable Treasure Chest, the rare version of which will always contain at least two Adorned Empyrean Jewels.
 
 
 
The tireless work of constructing Scroll Cases and charting maps requires Ancient Relics, Pirate Seals, and Empyrean Seals. Once the Cartographer's work is complete, hunters can expect to spend these resources in exchange for this new type of Scroll Case.

==== Collapse the Empyrean Empire ====
 
The secret has been revealed! Ronza has completed her research and has invented a means of utilizing Rocket Boosters to provide powerful vertical thrust to any dirigible! Hunters who have proven their mastery of flight by earning a High Altitude Flight License can now construct Rocket Boosters for their own dirigible to explore what lies above the High Altitude Islands of the Floating Islands.
 
 
 
Have yet to earn your High Altitude Flight License? Make sure to visit the Cartographer at the Floating Islands where any qualified pilot can pick one up for a modest licensing fee.

==== Building Rocket Boosters ====
+
==== Sending Out Final Golems ====
Once you've proven a capable dirigible captain by fully exploring the Floating Islands, the Cartographer there will be able to issue you a High Altitude Flight License. This license will permit you to retrofit your airship with state-of-the-art Rocket Booster technology invented by Ronza herself! The schematics are relatively simple, only requiring a modest quantity of Sky Glass and Sky Ore to secure the boosters to the balloon. However, fueling the boosters is a more involved process.
+
Hunters can continue to send out Snow Golems until '''Tuesday, January 11'''. Have more parts than you think you'll be able to use before '''January 11'''? Smash extra Golem Parts into Animated Snow which can be spent at the General Store to purchase Festive Jingle Bells. These magical, one-time-use bells will help hastily return a golem, allowing you to quickly use up those excess parts!
 
 
The Empyrean Sky Palace lies far above even the highest altitude islands and generating enough lift to nearly leave the atmosphere is no small feat. To generate sufficient thrust, you'll need to safely collect and utilize Storm Cells as an energy source. These powerful and highly volatile cells can only be collected once you possess the Rocket Booster which provides a safe means of handling them. With the Rocket Booster upgrade built, you can find Storm Cells as loot drops from various mice who find them to be a valuable commodity to protect, plunder, and merchant.
 
 
 
<div style="text-align: center; border: 1px solid; border-radius: 5px; padding: 5px">
 
'''Fifty Storm Cells are needed to make the journey to the Empyrean Sky Palace'''<br>
 
Make sure to build the booster upgrade as soon as possible to start safely collecting this resource!

==== Sky High Exploration Supplies ====
 
The cunning Floating Islands Cheese Shoppe owner has created an extremely decadent and excessively rich flavour of Cloud Cheesecake which you'll find useful throughout the Floating Islands but especially so in the Empyrean Sky Palace.
 
 
 
Extra Rich Cloud Cheesecake is imbued with the power of Sky Ore and Glass, providing a 20% Power Bonus and +5 Luck bonus throughout the Floating Islands. It's extra rich flavour appeals to the most discerning mice, meaning it will repel Kite Flyer and Daydreamer Mice while also attracting the more lucrative breeds. Use some to overpower the island mice but be sure to save some for your efforts in the Sky Palace itself where it will attract several new and very rewarding types of mice!

==== Prepare for Takeoff ====
+
==== Reminder: Spend Festive Sugar Cookies ====
The Rocket Booster upgrade comes complete with a Launch Console to program your flight path. The Empyrean Sky Palace is a vast complex of a seemingly endless number of vaults that are each loaded with varying quantities and types of treasure. After unlocking the Rocket Booster upgrade you can access your Launch Console while on the Launch Pad to journey to the Sky Palace instead of to a regular Floating Island.
+
Changing your HUD decorations will still affect which mice you attract however, decoration-themed mice will no longer drop Festive Sugar Cookies. Make sure to take stock of your final count of Sugar Cookies and then browse the various shops at the Festive Comet where you can spend them on all sorts of rewards!
 
 
Using your Launch Console you'll be able to dial and lock in a set of coordinates to arrive at a specific vault of your choosing. Each coordinate on the console can be individually locked and you can use Cyclone Stones to reprogram all the unlocked coordinates. Tinker and experiment with the Launch Console to learn all it has to offer. Once you've chosen and locked all of your coordinates then you're ready to hit the "Launch" button and soar to new heights!
 
  
Were you able to recover at least 200 Chrome Bits during Ronza's visit and claim the Hazardous Materials Crate? If so, this container can now be safely opened to reveal Ronza's gift of 25 Storm Cells to provide you with a massive head start on your first journey to the Sky Palace! The crate provides a safe means of keeping the Storm Cells stable so you can pry it open even before you acquire your Rocket Boosters.
+
'''Reminder''': Before the start of the next Great Winter Hunt any Golem Parts and Animated Snow in your inventory will melt away, M.I.L.K. and Cookies will evaporate and crumble, and any Recovered Gifts will be collected by the King. '''Make sure to use all of these resources up before January 11!'''

==== Exploring a Vault ====

<div style="text-align: left; margin: 0 0 0.5em 0">Hunters can continue to send out Snow Golems until the event ends completely.</div>
After locking in your coordinates and journeying to the Empyrean Sky Palace you'll find yourself at one of its endless treasure vaults. Exploring a vault is nearly identical to exploring a Floating Island, however, much greater treasures await your discovery!
 
  
The vaults are where the Empyrean Empire house their extensive stash of loot and treasures. Vast quantities of Sky Ore and Sky Glass, Raw Ancient Jade to construct Ancient Charms, and even the minted currency of the empire itself: Empyrean Seals. Perhaps most valuable though is the Empyrean Treasure Trove you'll find by fully exploring a vault. Inside you'll always find '''at least one Adorned Empyrean Jewel''' along with other valuables!

<div style="text-align: left">After the event ends, any Golem Parts and Animated Snow in your inventory will melt away, M.I.L.K. and Cookies will evaporate and crumble, and any Compressed Cinnamon will be collected by the King.</div>

Exploring a vault is not without risk as there are several types of Palace Protectors looking to thwart your effort, new Sky Pirates competing for plunder, and even the Empyrean Empress herself to stand in your way!
