|Lunar New Year Event Suggestion|
Those that know me from the TFM discord might recall this, as I started it a while back.
This upcoming lunar year (also know as Chinese New Year) is going to be the year of the rat (or mouse ;) ), and thought it would be cute if TFM did a small event based around this celebration! The lunar new year begins Saturday, January 25 so it could potentially be a small event between the Christmas and Valentines events.
A big part of the lunar new year is spending time with family, and a smaller component of this is the sharing of the red envelopes (which contain money). I thought it would be a cute idea to build off of this, and have items that mice can collect on various maps!
I've designed a prototype for what the red envelopes that the mice would collect would look like. The original one I designed has the (admittedly Google translated) Chinese word for "cheese", simply just cause I thought it would be cute, as cheese is the main currency for mice! However, when the item is small, I realized that it was hard to see the characters, so I replaced the characters with a C (for cheese). Feedback on this would be appreciated!

Here is how I picture the red envelopes to work:
There would also be a special map, designed with a little fireworks display in the background (not animated, we don't need to kill computers). On this map there would be an NPC mouse character that you can also trade red envelopes with. Here you can trade for titles, a cartouche, and a badge.
Some title suggestions:
> Little Moon (awarded for collecting 100 red envelopes)
> Wealthy (awarded for trading 1000 traded envelopes to the NPC mouse)
> Firework (awarded for trading 100 non-traded envelopes with the NPC mouse)
> Year of the rat (awarded for trading 500 non-traded envelopes with the NPC mouse)
> Dragon Dancer (awarded for trading 500 envelopes with other players)
> Little Dumpling (awarded for trading 1000 envelopes with other players)
Lastly, here are some items that I have designed so far for the lunar new year! I hope that even if this event doesn't get made, at least some of these items get used!
Moon ear item (silver)
Moon ear item (red + gold)
Moon cake item
Yin yang tail item
Fireworks tail item
Lunar new year fur (based on paper decorations)
Lastly, there was an additional fur idea by Premi#1720 on discord!
I also added in shaman item suggestions, starting with the balloons!
If any of you have any item suggestions, I'll add it to this post with your permission!
