January's Item-of-the-Month, the snow suit, is now available in Mr. Store, along with the two new yearly familiars.

The Angry Jung Man is our most ambitious content familiar yet, and the Unconscious Collective is nothing to snore at, either!

PvP Season 5 also starts tonight, in case your New Year's resolution is to clobber your fellow players.

Also, stat requirements on zones are now recommendations, rather than requirements. Zones want to be free!

Also (sheesh) Crimbo Town has faded back into the mists for another year. But its spirit is still inside you. Waiting. Uncle Crimboku has temporarily relocated his trailer to Market Square, in case you'd like him to make some toys out of your leftover plastic ingots and electrical thingamabobs.
