According to the NO's Kingdom Calendar the next Bill 3/Generic Summer Holiday? will be on March 12, 2008--Vince3 20:34, 7 December 2007 (CST)

Theory: Perhaps the cost of vacations will be reduced (either adventure- or Meat-wise), or new holiday-only vacation adventures will show up? --PFC Walker 11:24, 7 March 2008 (CST)

Swimming makes the screen go blank, doesn't use an adventure. Possibly this one snuck up on them as well? --Treefrog 23:03, 11 March 2008 (CDT) My mistake - finally worked. Got Heavily Breathing, 10 adventures. cool! --Treefrog 23:07, 11 March 2008 (CDT)

Looks like it provides one of three effects, depending on what pool toy is equipped. They don't provide any stat boosts. Lychosis 23:10, 11 March 2008 (CDT)

Ok, so there are three pool toys, one for each stat (noodle for moxie, wings for myst, and duck for muscle) available at the market. While wearing one or more, swimming in the market fountain gives (so far) three different noncombats, chosen out of the three stats for which you have pool toys equipped. They seem to give a substat gain in combat. Anybody want to confirm my initial guesses? Scaling to level seems almost certain, and it seems to happen after substat gain is calculated. I have -stats from combat (knob potion), and the noodle buff on lvl 23. I get 23 moxie every time against bunnies.--Spaz102 23:11, 11 March 2008 (CDT)


As a level 13 TT, with each of the three buffs, I received a consistent 40 substats from fluffy bunnies (13/13/13 with 1 extra). Seems to be scaled to level. Hoopity 23:17, 11 March 2008 (CDT)

Looks that way to me... All three effects running and fought a burly sidekick (no other +stat), got 22/22/14 substats for a total of 58... expected around 25 (and confirmed next adventure having dumped the effects - 6/14/5). Level 11 PM incidentally --Denarius 23:20, 11 March 2008 (CDT)

Teleportitis will affect your swimming attempts. :( Asinine 04:31, 12 March 2008 (CDT)

I'm not good at editing so if someone would do it for me. The generic summer holiday III is actualy going to be on september 20th. number 4 is on december 25th. --omastar444 22:45 15 June 2008 (CDT)

The effects

I took the liberty of giving a brief overview of the items and their effects. Also gave links to things I thought were valid. Feel free to edit my stuff if you think its messy or whatever :P

If I already have an effect from Generic Summer Holiday, will trying to swim again (for the same effect) just waste an adventure? I checked pages & discussions and can't find any mention of this happening or not happening. So I tried it. Answer: No, it doesn't waste an adventure. It stacks 10 more adventures of the effect -- I had 8, swam, then had 17. I think this is important enough to put into one or more pages. I'm not to confident in my editing, and pressed for time. I might try to add it later. But on the holiday page only? Thanks. --StorellaDeville 02:55, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

List of dates of every GSH

Seriously, does anyone care whether the tenth GSH was on Bill 3, 26 or Bill 3, 27? It might matter a little for holidays where things change (Oyster Egg Day), or have changed (Sneaky Pete's Day), or whatever, but, can we just collapse that whole section to say "Bill 3 starting March 12, 2008", and put the two exceptions in the notes? The dates themselves haven't been updated since November of last year. --Johnny Treehugger 17:43, 30 August 2012 (CEST)

  • probably not. dates back to the days when jick had to remember to turn things on and forgot a lot. perhaps this would be better in Proposed Standards. useful nevertheless to know when the next one is. strong wiki-fu needed to template that, though. --Evilkolbot 18:29, 30 August 2012 (CEST)

Florist Friar Terrain

For the sake of anal completionism, the terrain for this zone is outdoor. --Graymalkin (#624900) (talk) 03:58, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
