Dessert Pets![edit | edit source]

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!

The Habitica team has launched a special official Challenge series hosted in the Official New Year's Resolution Guild. These Challenges are designed to help you build and maintain goals that are destined for success and then stick with them as 2020 progresses.

Check out the first New Year's Resolution Challenge of the year to start your path to resolution success! In Begin Your Quest, we're focusing on choosing realistic and achievable resolutions! One grand-prize winner will receive their choice of a one-month gift subscription to Habitica or 25 Gems when it closes on February 3rd. Four lucky runners-up will get a 15 Gem prize.

Congratulations to the winners of December's Challenge, @AndoJun, @SilverSquirrel, @CathB, @IntegrationAsh, and @DerRue!

The next Take This Challenge has also launched, Hero's Triumph, with a focus on volunteering. Be sure to check it out to earn additional pieces of the Take This armor set!

Take This is a nonprofit that seeks to inform the gamer community about mental health issues, to provide education about mental disorders and mental illness prevention, and to reduce the stigma of mental illness.

Congratulations to the winners of the last Take This Challenge, "Test Thy Courage!": grand prize winner @r-flan2020, and runners-up @SPLOOean, @Bobette37, @WizardGnome, @pearlygeek, and @drilcipher! Plus, all participants in that Challenge have received a piece of the Take This item set if they hadn't completed it already. It is located in your Rewards column. Enjoy!
