Tale of the White Wyvern - Changelog
Here you can find a list of all changes to Tale of the White Wyvern and the dates they were made.
Version 0.9.20: Skill Gain UX Enhancement (2019-1-22)
Skill Gain UX Enhancement: When you are training in Mead Hall, The Magic Room or with Reynard the Fox you can now see you current / dual class skills before you train.
Version 0.9.19: Show Cosmetic Member Items (2019-12-16)
Show Cosmetic Member Items: Non Members can now see the cosmentic items that Members can buy as alternative Weapon, Armor and Hat sets.
Fields PvP Update: We've been noticing players camping out at certain levels such that it creates a situation where if someone does that for long
they are so powerful they are unbeatable by anyone progressing through the game normally. One small thing we are doing to help this situation is if you click to
attack someone in the fields, we now tell you what weapon they are practicing with. This allows the attacker to know the weapon the person in the fields has before
they are fighting them. We feel this change is fair as it keeps with the lore of the fields and people practicing and also helps a possible frustration players have
with level camping.
Version 0.9.18: Town Square Organization (2019-12-04)
Town Square Organization: We've had the classic Town Square menu ordering for quite some time and it's placement didn't quite make sense with what's most important in a game day.
We've organized the Town Square to make what you do the most in a game day the most prominent. Hopefully you find this change useful especially on mobile.
We also moved Calinda's Hof to Other Places.
Version 0.9.17: Season Support & Bug Fixes (2019-11-26)
Support for Seasons: We now have full support for season games that end at a certain time and at that time winners are crowned.
- Bugs: Some bugs we fixed we can't talk a lot about just like this one. But it was fixed so yay.
Version 0.9.16: More Event Preparation, Bug Fixes and Mail (2019-11-17)
The Turn of the Page: This is a new event that will occur on New Years. Be sure to chat
with Helga to learn about the holiday!
- Send Mail More Easily: Added a link to send mail to someone on their profile page. Way less tapping or typing, yay!
- PvP Bug: Fixed a bug where players that login and were killed would die when they should be alive.
Version 0.9.15: Event Preparation and Bug Fixes (2019-11-13)
This update is mostly geared toward later events, so there aren't many changes here that you'll see yet. At any rate,
here's what you have to look forward to!
The Feast of Gratitude: This is a new event that will occur at the end of November. Be sure to chat
with the townsfolk to learn about the holiday!

- Paragon & The Endgame: Every 5th Wyvern kill gets you a paragon coin. Learn more about them and how you can spend them in Helga's.
- Wyvern Fights: We now properly rotate the Wyvern fight power in cycles of 5. So the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th power levels wrap around at the 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th fights and again ad infinitum!

- Bank Interest Change: Hats now effect the interest rate at the bank.
Version 0.9.9: Balancing and Player List Changes (2019-10-06)
- Wyvern Balancing: Significantly changed the 5th Wyvern fight balancing and how the fight operates. Much more fair to players that don't dual class. 🐉

- Player List Update: Change (L)ist Players to (P)layers Online in the menu for clarity and consistency. We now have two selections in the Players Online section in Active Players and Full Player List. Active players is the new top most selection showing you people that have played in the last week. Full player list lists all players.
Version 0.9.8: New Fearures (2019-09-23)
- In game Gold Transfers: You can now transfer gold to other players in the bank.
- Portland Retro Game Expo: Added the Portland Retro Game Expo in-game event.
- Scaled Wyvern Fights: The Wyvern grows much stronger for the 3rd, 4th and 5th fights. 🐉

- Rogue Overhaul: The Rogue ability is now Disappear. Disappear makes you invulnerable to attack for 4 turns.
- Mage Tweak: The White spell used to be a 10x attack. It is now a 7x attack as 10x was entirely too overpowered.
Version 0.9.6: New Event, Wyvern Scaling, and a Check on Running (2019-08-25)
- Cyclus Seasonal Event: Added the Cyclus seasonal event building the framework for many more events. Check Helga's Potion Shoppe for more information on seasons.
- Scaled Wyvern Fights: Finally added intial scaling for the 2nd through 5th Wyvern fights. 🐉
- Fight UX Change: We now ask you if you want to run from a fight when you tap the run button. Originally it just happened, but sometimes you might not intend to do that so now you have to confirm it.
Version 0.9.5: Balancing and NPC Reward Changes (2019-08-15)
- Forest Fight XP & Gold Drops: Increased XP and gold drops for level 10, 11 and 12 monsters in the forest by 30%.
- Instructions: Clarifying how Wyvern fights and player resets work in the new Instructions section "Defeating The Wyvern & The Endgame".
NPC Interactions: Originally if you interacted with the NPCs Scarlet, Crugg and Jon Boyd they all awarded you the same amount of experience depending on the amount of charm you had.
Now NPCs grant you benefits differently. Interacting with Scarlet grants you experience. Interacting with Jon Boyd grants you gold. Interacting with Crugg grants you forest fights. As always you can
only interact with one NPC per day but now you now can make a strategic choice based on what you want to gain for the day. Jon Boyd still remains different in that you can have him sing a song every day on top of all this.
As you gain more charm the experience, gold and forest fight benefits from the NPC interactions grow.
Version 0.9.4: New Location, Event Changes, News Additions, Bug Fixes (2019-08-11)
- Random Forest Events: If you are fully healed the healing event no longer shows up. Added a new random encounter so you can now find 1 or 2 gems. The random gold find event now gives you gold based on your level. You can now be pick-pocketed by a thief in the forest. Make sure to deposit that gold!
- Wyvern Fight: In the Rogue and Warrior ending it was citing the current players weapon as a Tree Branch. We describe the proper weapon now.
- Graveyard: If you use your dead card you trigger a Daily News entry.
- Daily News: Adding many more unique player and enemy quotes.
- The Outhouse: Adding the Outhouse to Other places.
Version 0.9.3: Forest Fight Balancing, NPC Clarification, New Location (2019-08-09)
- Primrose Park: Added Primrose Park. Currently only has the Hero's Shrine that will honor the first players to defeat the Wyvern in this realm.
- NPC Interaction: Currently you can only interact with one NPC per day for an experience benefit. Made that more obvious when you try a second time with the new message "You can only interact with one NPC per day." This is changed from the old less helpful message.
- Forest Fights: Removed the "troll" monsters or lower level monsters in high level fights that wouldn't give you very much gold or experience. All monsters at high levels are now appropriately scaled.
Version 0.9.2.1: Bug Fixes (2019-08-06)
- Player Fights: Address a rare case where a user logs in and experiences a new day while someone is attacking them and then loses the fight.
- New Day: Fixed a few cases where the new day message wouldn't show for some users.

Version 0.9.2: Change Your Gender, Interface Changes, and Bug Fixes (2019-08-04)
- Instructions: Added some semantic html to make the Instructions flow better.
- Welcome: Added a link to @the_whitewyvern on the welcome screen, and reprioritized the links.
- User Preferences: You can now reassign your gender in User Preferences.
- User Preferences: The theme selector was a little overzealous on mobile and will now remain constrained on your screen.
- Yar Sisters Bank: The Deposit and Withdrawal inputs will now bring up numeric input on mobile instead of the full keyboard.
Version 0.9.1: Bug Fixes and PvP Balancing (2019-08-01)
Bugs: Thanks for reporting them and keep it coming! We've been fixing a ton and way too many to list here.
The old rules allowed a player to attack someone one level below them or higher.
This meant that a level 5 could attack a level 4 player.
We are changing this because with stat boosts at higher levels there are few cases where a lower level player could win.
Players can now only attack players at their current level or higher.
Version 0.9: Tale of the White Wyvern Beta (2019-07-28)
Fights: You can venture into Forkwood forest to find enemies to hone your skills, fight your
master to level up, take on other players for the possibility of a big reward, and eventually take on

previous day, you are reborn.
