- 4/1/2020 - HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY! (ALSO SUBSCRIBER MYSTERY ITEMS)
- Dessert Pets!
- The April Fool rushes into the Tavern, clearly out of breath, with a gigantic picnic basket in tow. The heavenly smell of icing and chocolate wafts from the open basket into the crowd.
- "HABITICANS!" he cries. "I have heard you are all in need of some good cheer and comfort, and here I am! I hope you don't mind, in rather a turnaround from last year, I've brought along some treats to brighten your day."
- "Looks like this year he's turned our pets into desserts!" says Piyo. She picks up her new cinnamon bun companion gently. "Awww, they're so perfect and sweet!"
- Equipping different pets will show different desserts. Have fun discovering them all!
- Special April Fool's Social Media Challenge!
- For even more fun, check out the Challenge posted especially for today! Share your avatar featuring your new dessert pet on social media between now and April 3, and you'll have a chance to win Gems and have your avatar featured on the Habitica Blog!
