Herman’s Homecoming and HoJ!

November 9, 2022

Hey, StarFam! Horses of Jorvik returns this week. And who remembers Herman?


Herman’s Homecoming

After an immeasurable amount of time spent vacationing, saving Jorvik, or being missing (perhaps a mix of all three), it’s finally time for Herman to come home! Tag along for one last adventure before he returns to the comfort and familiarity of Jorvik Stables.

Meet Lisa and Stein in Jorvik Stables to bring Herman home! You must have completed the quest where you rescue Herman (“United with Snowdrop“) and saved LIsa (“Lisa’s Relief”).

Horses of Jorvik

If you haven’t yet met Guillermo, let us introduce you. He represents the organization Horses of Jorvik (HoJ for short). He comes to Jorvik every couple months to organize exclusive races. These races let horse owners show off their four-legged friends to other enthusiasts in Jorvik, just a few breeds at a time! During Guillermo’s latest stay, he’s putting Western horses in the spotlight.

His Western-inspired race is temporarily located in Starshine Ranch. It’s exclusive to the American Quarter Horse, American Paint Horse, Curly Horse and all their magical variations (Laverna, Heidrun, and Tombhoof). If you enter the race on any other type of horse, you will kindly be asked to leave and return with another.




Where can I find it?
Starshine Ranch.

How do I get started?
Introduce yourself to Guillermo Gadea.

Story snacks!

Since your last meeting with Mrs. Holdsworth, she uncovered a page that was ripped out of a ledger. It looks to be written by a city official or druid presiding over the internment of Jon Jarl. Meet her at the Fort Maria library and see what you can make of all this information!

You must be a Star Rider, have finished all the main story quests, and be up to date on story snacks to take part.


Star Coin and Jorvik Shilling update!

A little while ago, the Star Coin and Jorvik Shilling icons were given a visual update. We did this for a few reasons. First, we wanted the icons to look cohesive with our brand and fit the visual updates we’ve made in game and will continue to make going forward. Second, we wanted to ensure the icons looked the same across all our channels, which had been inconsistent. Our team worked hard to create new assets that provided visual consistency and looked great across all of our channels.

Once we launched the new look, you guys gave us a lot of important and constructive feedback! We took these suggestions seriously and made an additional update. Here are main concerns we addressed:

Accessibility issues for those who are color blind.

The shapes looked too similar and it was difficult to differentiate between the two.

We made changes to the saturation and contrast, amping up the intensity of the star and the J. We also made sure to run the new designs through programs that test visuals for color blindness. We then changed the overall design on the JS. Instead of the silver circle, it is now a hexagonal bronze coin, to further differentiate it from the SC icon. Thanks for your valuable feedback!

Below you can see the new designs compared to older designs.




Coming NEXT WEEK!

The Belgian Warmblood makes its way into Jorvik along with a very special variation. Are you All In?


Have a great week!
Love from your Star Stable Team ♥
