On July 21st 2009, reports of strange earthquakes began popping up throughout the Kingdom, signaling the beginning of highly weird geological events to come.
Several days later, a large amount of magical dust was discovered to have been kicked into the atmosphere, reducing the MP cost for certain spells. Adventurers reported seeing strange monsters all over the Kingdom. Around this time, a strange gravity defying dust was found to be accumulating.
On July 28th, the magical debris in the air had gotten noticeably thicker. Reports of even weirder monsters left adventurers wondering if perhaps the Typical Tavern's swill had been mixed with agua de vida. The rock monsters appeared less frequently, although a new, attractive item had the power to change that situation.
On August 5th, the debris levels had risen to their peak. Whisperings of stranger monsters still began to circulate. Floaty sand could be aggregated into several coarser forms, and another new rock related familiar appeared, further reassuring players that there was absolutely nothing of importance happening.
Then on August 25th, an update was posted saying the ground seemed to gotten angry. A new, angrier monster appeared and an option to escape the horrifying rocky picture show was offered to those who could defeat him.
On September 10th, with a thunderous whimper, the tremors ceased.

- Fearful Fettucini did not have its cost reduced initially due to an oversight, and on July 30th had its cost reduced to match Weapon of the Pastalord.
- On July 28, the moxie magnet was marked as a meat-pastable item. This coincided with the change in rock monster encounter rate.
