Knights, are you feeling under the weather? Maybe a bit feverish? Don’t worry, it isn’t seerus, you just have a case of Spring Fever! Spiral HQ is also afflicted with spring madness, and they’ve created the perfect cure - the Blooming Prize Box! You can buy Blooming Prize Boxes for $3.95 each, or a pack of 5 for $14.95. Prize boxes can only be purchased on their own and are not included with purchases of energy.

You can grab some Lovely costumes and accessories. Put spring into your knight’s step with a Blossom Aura, or add a floral halo. The box also contains dust bunny accessories to add to your spring-time gear. Do you think a disguise will fool the packs of dust bunnies in Ravenous Warrens to stop biting?

The Blooming Prize Box includes:

  • Lovely accessories and costume items
  • Lovely Bent Vertical Vents
  • Dust Bunny Tail
  • Whiskers
  • Floral Halo
  • Blossom Aura
  • Purple Wandering Snipes
  • Blowing Bubbles Usable

Find your favorite sky island or Treasure Vault level in the Clockworks and enjoy bright and sunny days in lush, grassy areas.

Hop over here to find all the contents and official rules! Blooming Prize Boxes will be available through April 23rd!

Also, be sure to visit the Supply Depot and Featured Auctions for other spring specials!

… prize boxes are literally just bought this time

1) Do want

2) Why are there no new flowers in the Blooming prize box?

3) It would be nice if one day they decided to do a promo where you could either just purchase the boxes, get them with a larger purchase, or buy them with CE. Or just the latter two together.

Awww, gremlins are so cute!… when they aren’t trying to bludgeon/scorch/explode you to death, that’s it.

I didn’t expect to see this reposted here. XD (Wait - did I forget to post it to this blog? EDIT: Nope, I didn’t … original is here. I guess it went up on Spiralsnipes first.)

Lyrics:

Hey there Biscotti, you’re there in the kitchen baking
And I just can’t help but wonder
What it is that you are making, is it cake?
Is that the only thing you bake? Dark matter cake?

Hey there Biscotti, don’t you worry ‘bout those Creepcakes,
We all know it was an accident, a tiny little mistake,
that one time, although the second was a crime,
that cake was prime

Oh, the cakes are so creepy,
oh, the cakes are so creepy
oh, the cakes are so creepy,
oh, the cakes are so creepy,
the cakes are so creepy

Hey there Biscotti, can we skip on the Dark Matter?
Baking powder is fine next time you’re mixing up the batter
Leave it out, Dark matter we can do without,
just leave it out

Hey there Biscotti, there’s just so much left to say
If you just have to bake with minerals, then Luminite’s the way
to make light cakes,
We don’t need need to battle what you bake, give me a break

Oh, the cakes are so creepy,
oh, the cakes are so creepy
oh, the cakes are so creepy,
oh, the cakes are so creepy,

It’s good you’ve moved on to sprite food
That Maskewraithe is a happy dude
When you bring out your kitchen specialty
The rest of us can back away
and live to eat another day
it’s something on which we can all agree

Biscotti, when that oven’s on
it seems like common sense is gone
Dessert will never ever be the same
And you’re to blame

Hey there Biscotti
Get yourself a good apprentice
Who can watch your back and recipes
something won’t be amiss when you bake

We won’t see any more mistakes
So another monster you won’t make
Hey there Biscotti no more cake
for Haven’s sake

Oh, the cakes are so creepy,
oh, the cakes are so creepy
oh, the cakes are so creepy,
oh, the cakes are so creepy,
the cakes are so creepy

I feel this is relevant again. Although I do have to point out, Biscotti, that your new assistant is just as bad as you are.

Roasted Gourdling with Apocrean Rice Stuffing

Ingredients

This recipe was created using a gourdling head that was almost six lbs, so adjust accordingly. Double the filling recipe for a Punkin head of the same weight.

1 Gourdling head, or Punkin King head if available (I used a butternut squash, but would recommend a pumpkin if available, as it’s less carving. Any other hollow winter squash would work too, although the texture of a spaghetti squash might be a bit strange in this case)
1/4 cup Apocrean rice (Black rice can be found in some specialty shops and occasionally Costco. If you can’t find it, wild rice, brown rice, or a mix of the two would work, according to your preference. Keep in mind you may need to adjust your cooking technique if you make the substitution)
1/4 cup dry couscous
2 cups Snipe broth, divided
1/2 - 1 cup your choice of cheese, grated (I used medium cheddar because that’s what was in my fridge, but I think a smoked gouda may be better next time)
4 - 6 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 lb cured Chromalisk (If you don’t like bacon, substitute diced ham and omit step 4)
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup onions, shallots, or chives, chopped
1/2 teaspoon powdered bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon tarragon
salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit
2. Prepare Apocrean rice by boiling 1 cup of Snipe broth. Add the rice and cover, cooking for about half an hour, or until tender. Set aside
3. Bring the remaining cup of Snipe broth to a boil, add couscous, and let sit for 5 minutes. Set aside.
4. Fry bacon until crisp, then crumble (If using ham, dice)
5. Open Gourdling head by cutting a long slice from one side (see picture) and hollowing out the empty space in the center. Retain seeds for toasting later, if you wish (butternut and acorn squash seeds are, in Tevvie’s opinion, far superior to pumpkin seeds for roasting). You’ll want to cut out some of the squash in the center of the long end to hold your filling (careful, this can be tricky!); keep the extra squash for another recipe, as you won’t need it here. If using a Punkin head, hollow it out as if for a jack-o-lantern. Keep the piece of gourd you cut off; you’ll use it as a lid during baking.
6. Combine the Apocrean rice, couscous, cheese, meat, onions, and herbs, then place inside Gourdling head
7. Place your Gourdling in a baking dish: a dutch oven, roasting pan or caldera works best. Use the smallest one your gourd fits into.
8. Pour the heavy cream over the filling inside the Gourdling and put the lid of the gourd on.
9. Bake for about two hours, or until a fork pierces the skin easily. Remove the lid of the gourd for the last half hour
10. Serve as slices for a Gourdling, or wedges for a Punkin. Can be paired with a salad and/or bread as a full meal or served more sparingly as a side dish.

For a vegetarian dish, replace Snipe broth with vegetable broth and omit cured Chromalisk.

A good friend reminded me to post this here as I forgot to do so myself. I’m working on Spiral Knights: Orchestrated! after the successful release of Spiral Knights: Remixed! and this will be the opening track of the album. I hope you enjoy!

I get the distinct feeling that I am being trolled.
