Hello loves,

Welcome back to our weekly newsletter! Happy Thanksgiving week to those who celebrate it! As Christmas nears, we have some fun events to wrap up November first! I’m sure you’ll all be super excited, so let’s jump into it.

General News
Some special pals have invited all of you to a Thanksgiving character dinner! Join this Friday at 3pm EST for a feast set for giants. Including all of your food favorites, and some secret character appearances. If you’ve never been to a character dining before, you will be seated by a lovely waiter, receive some delicious five star snacks, and the characters guests will come around to each table! It has been some time, and the characters are super hungry, so make sure to stop by!

Character applications are now open! We know many of you have been asking for sometime, and we are so thankful for your eagerness. We are looking for some passionate character lovers, and if you think you have what it takes you can apply here. Make sure to have an account on our forums in order to apply! Applications will close after we think we have enough applicants, just watch for announcements.

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey is now open in Universal Studios Orlando! Our team has put so much love into this ride, and they are so overjoyed that it is finally released. Join Harry and friends in a magical flight through Hogwarts and it’s grounds. Watch out for an array of magical creatures, just waiting to meet you! Not all are friendly however, so be on the lookout! You can visit using /warp FJ.

Holiday Wishes has also come to the Magic Kingdom! Make sure to keep a look at the show schedule using your Mickey watch, because it is not a show you will want to miss. Featuring all sorts of holiday cheer, it is the perfect way to set yourself in a cheery mood. Keep a lookout for other holiday shows as well!

Also a quick developer’s note, if Creative’s chat is...
Hello there! I’m Lego, one of the Managers on Palace. It’s been a while since I’ve posted about new feature releases, but I’m excited to start doing them again! We have a lot of new features coming out soon, and some are coming out today!

We’ll be calling this update “The Honor Update” and it will be released in phases. Today is Phase One, and we’ll make posts about future phases as they come closer.

So what’s in Phase One, you might ask? Let’s take a look…

Honor Points
[​IMG]

This will be Palace’s new leveling system! Above your experience bar you’ll see a number based on what level you are, and the experience bar will show your progress to the next level. Each level requires you to earn more and more Honor Points to reach the next one.

Now you might be wondering “How do I earn Honor Points?” Great question!

We will be fully rolling this out over the next few days, however here’s how you will get Honor Points on the network:
  • Playing in the Arcade
    • Scoring/placing higher in games gets you more HP
  • Riding rides
    • You get a certain amount of HP per minute a ride lasts, so Kilimanjaro Safaris rewards more HP than it’s a small world.
  • Watching Shows
    • Similar to rides, you get a certain amount of HP depending on how long the show is.
  • Earning Achievements
    • Each achievement you earn gets you 5 HP. You no longer get 5 tokens per achievement.
  • Playing on Creative
    • You’ll still earn $10 every 30 minutes, however now you’ll get 5 HP for every 18 minutes you spend on Creative.
      • Why 18? We spent a while trying to balance the “worth” of every action that rewards HP on the server and, after a lot of calculations, we found that 5 HP for every 18 minutes spent is the best balance between Creative, Parks, Arcade, etc.
Those are all of the different ways you can earn...
Hello loves,

Welcome back to our weekly newsletter! It is now November 2017, our anniversary month, and we have to much to share!

General News
First off, happy one year anniversary everyone! This has been such an amazing journey and we couldn’t have done it without all of you. From new games, renovations, and parks. To shiny new cosmetics, and these very newsletters. While we’ve had such an amazing time, imagine what we will have done by our second anniversary! For now, let’s enjoy the celebrations!

Our lovely cosmetic fairies have released a free anniversary crown that can be redeemed by ALL RANKS! Show your love this month by heading to our store, found here, and clicking on the cosmetics tab. From there click on the crown, enter your information, no card needed, and redeem the crown for free. This will be available for a limited amount of time, so make sure to snag yourself a shiny crown before it is gone!

We will also be having tons of other events through the month, so just keep watch on our social medias, the server chat, and these newsletters.

Once again, thank you all for such an amazing year, and we can’t wait to see where we will all go in the future!

Welcome back to our spooky weekly newsletter! It’s the final newsletter of October 2017, and we have had such a spook filled month! We will start wrapping things up, and then it’s Christmas time! Oh… Thanksgiving too...

General Spooky News
First up, welcome to our special Halloween edition newsletter! It has been such a fun filled month and we hope you all really enjoyed. We’ve had a new Seasonal open, our first Halloween Horror Nights, Academy of Villains, and so much more. Of course we still have some last chance spooks to share, so enjoy!

Also I’m sure many of you have been wondering what the clown head in Seasonal is for, we are going to be having a giant Halloween bash party on November 3rd! So that everyone has the best chance of attending, we will be doing two different parties at different times! The first party starts at 2:00pm EST, and ends at 3:00pm EST! The second starts at 5:00pm EST, and lasts to 6:00pm EST. Costumes are not required, but strongly recommended. What is a Halloween party without costumes?? There will also be spooky music, parkours, games, and more!

Our last showing Academy of Villains and presentation of Halloween Horror Nights will be this Saturday at 1PM EST. The ghosts and ghouls have had so much fun entertaining everyone this Halloween, and they want to put on an awesome last performance. Then, it’s back to Halloweentown with them until next year!

Mickey will also be showing his HalloWishes and Boo to You parade all day today in honor of the special holiday! This may be one of the last chances you get to view the shows this year, so make sure to not miss the haunting delights.

Ekam would also like to thank everyone for participating in the Haunted Hunt this year, and we are all so proud of everyone who participated. Entries will remain open until Thursday, so if any ghouls have any unfinished business before it’s time to head back, now is the time to do it!

We would once again like to thank you all for...
As our first anniversary as Palace Network approaches, I took a moment to sit back and reflect on where we've gone within the past year.

I've seen life-long friendships built, dreams that have come true, hardwork and dedication from everyone to continue making Palace Network an amazing place for Guests from all over the world to enjoy. It's truly been a sight to see, and I couldn't be more honored to be here with you all almost one year later to continue that legacy.

It's important to me, and the rest of our leadership team here that we continue to build our community around acceptance of other people, even if we don't agree with their beliefs or they don't believe in ours. I think we're on the right track - but there's always room to improve, even from me personally.

I take a look back at 2017 as a whole and all I see is fighting and conflict. Instead of embracing differences we've grown accustom to hating them, instead of getting along with people who believe differently than we do, we fight them. Instead of being the change we want to see, we're a part of the problem, and as a leader of Palace Network, I personally feel that I have led us in that direction. Moving forward, I know that we can do better, and we will do better. For those of you that have been a positive influence within this community, thank you, you have truly impacted us more than you know.

Year 2 of Palace will be a great one, we have a lot of new content planned based directly on community feedback and we will continue working towards making Palace an even better place for all of our guests to enjoy. However, I do want to take a moment to genuinely say thank you to some people that have greatly impacted the community in a positive way.
