Hello, and a warm welcome to The Clan! The re-design has been a real journey for everyone, and we’re extremely pleased to be able to tell you about all the wonderful things this latest version of The Clan has to offer.
Firstly, do remember to read Michelle’s latest note to Clanners the world over. She’s been watching the re-design and update and has lots to say about it.
We know many Clanners also had lots of opinions about the new design, and we just wanted to say that we hear you. We’ve all worked hard in getting The Clan where it is today — Clanners, guardians, and administrators — and to thank you for all your patience and dedication, we’re launching The Clan Scavenger Hunt! Images have been hidden around jointheclan.com and we’ve come up with clues to find them. There are great prizes lined up for the the first few who find them all, including — more details are in the forum.
Another new feature of The Clan is the official launch of our currency, the Nanuak. Clanners will have noticed they’ve been earning these little creatures, and we know we’ve been a little tight-lipped about what they are and what Clanners can do with them. We can now reveal all — not only do Nanuaks contribute to deciding who’s been the top Clanner and the top Clan every year, you can also use them in our Shop! There’s lots of detail in the full post All About Nanuaks, but in short: earning lots of Nanuaks could mean a huge prize at the end of the year — if you’re our top-scoring Clanner.
And our final big news with this announcement: Elv Moody (aka Seafalcon), the Editorial Director at Puffin Books, will be visiting The Clan on 22 July, answering questions about Gods and Warriors. We’ve created a thread specially for your questions, so please get posting in time for Elv to answer them all!
