A ravaging Sahel Drought disrupts migrations sweeping across Africa, claiming lives of humans, livestock and wildlife.

With animals dying, many camps have been set to feed hippos and provide basic sources of water for most needing animals like elephants. Reports on rivers drying up are increasing by the day, as wet seasons never arrive.

What will you lions do?
Will you rampage local farms and villages, or try to survive on scarce herds and starved corpses?
Will you cause a conflict or succumb to plans of nature?

Event Information  

This event is highly focused on exploring.
The explore encounters exclusive to this month can be found in all biomes.
Your lion's karma and level, as well as the biome you explore in, do not matter for this event.

In August, the community is working to unlock two separate bars, which reveal two different areas on the site.
The more humans we kill in Explore, the faster the exclusive August studs are unlocked.
The more Dry Bones we collect in Explore, the faster we will unlock The Peddler.

There are also two separate shops that will unlock depending on how many Evil or Good actions you do in Explore: The Destroyers (Evil) and The Preservers (Good). These shops are unlocked by your actions only.

The Destroyers is unlocked by earning a total of 300 Evil Points, while The Preservers is unlocked by earning a total of 300 Good Points. You can only have one shop open at one time, but it is possible to open both shops multiple times on one account. If you go below the threshold for either shop, your access will be restricted until you reach 300 Evil or Good Points again, respectively.

This month's currencies are Carrion Beetles and Dry Bones.
Carrion Beetles and Dry Bones can both be gained in Explore. Some encounters will award more Carrion Beetles than Dry Bones, and vice versa. You can also earn Carrion Beetles and Dry Bones by playing Fire Escape.

For the entire month of August, there will only be a dry season *. You will not see any rain or any hint of wet season until August ends.

* If you are on the Journey to Vredefort Crater quest and you need to access the Flood Pit, it will be manually opened from 12am Lioden time to 11:59pm Lioden time on August 14th and August 28th.

Thirst-Quenching Items  

August's event unlocks a temporary Thirst bar, which displays with your lion's energy, hunger, experience, and impression. Thirst only affects your pride leader, not your pride members.
Your lion's Thirst will drop at a rate of 5% every 30 minutes. It can also randomly drop from certain event encounters. Luckily, you can raise it through certain event encounters, as well as consume water items that are dropped year-round.


African Cucumber
Aloe Leaf
Stripped Cacti
Water Root

Your lion will not die if they reach 100% Thirst. Reaching 100% Thirst just means that you will be unable to fight NPCs in Explore. If you attempt to fight an NPC in Explore while at 100% Thirst, you will receive the following error message.

You pounce at your enemy, but find that it's not enough. You're thirsty.. so thirsty. You collapse on the ground, your prey escaping as you gasp for breath. Better find some water soon!

If you manage to increase your lion's Thirst by even 1%, you'll be able to fight again.

Failed Hunts  

August is a scorching month, and your lionesses really feel its effects. Prey is also more difficult to come across due to the lack of available water. The herds are smart—they're migrating to find water elsewhere!

Because of this, your lionesses have a higher chance of failing to bring back anything whilst hunting.

Hunt Results.  Your lionesses brought back: Nothing.  Perhaps the heat has gotten to your females?

Fire Escape  


Fire Escape is an endless runner-type minigame that is exclusively available during August's event. Within Fire Escape, you play a male lion that is desperately trying to, well, escape the fire that is burning his entire home to the ground. There are obstacles that you need to avoid, Carrion Beetles to collect, and as you earn points and progress through the game, the lion runs faster and faster!

You can submit your score once per day to earn up to a maximum of 200 Carrion Beetles and 100 Dry Bones per day—if you play Fire Escape each day and hit the maximum score every time, that's roughly an additional 6,000 Carrion Beetles and 3,000 Dry Bones for you to spend! Score sending for Fire Escape resets at midnight (12am) Lioden time, not at rollover (2:05am).

To find out more information on Fire Escape, check out the Fire Escape section of the Event Games page!

Vulture Chase  


The vultures are circling overhead, looking as though they're ready to land and feast on some poor creature who is struggling to survive the heat. Maybe you could send one of your adolescents to practice their hunting skills?

For a fee of 5 Dry Bones, you can send your adolescent females out to Vulture Chase, a small extension of The Peddler. Each adolescent can chase vultures once per rollover, and each chasing session will last 60 minutes. You can only send out one adolescent per session, so prioritise which one you want to send out first!

At the end of the session, your chosen adolescent will earn 50 Experience and 2 to 5 random stats.

Tracking Herds  


Some of the vultures that your adolescents were chasing have come to you. In your brilliance, you decide it would be a good idea to use them to keep track of the herd migrations near your pride, and gather other useful information.

For a fee of 50 Dry Bones, your pride leader can track herds to receive Experience once per rollover! The Experience that they receive is equal to (LVL x 30). A level 5 lion would earn 150 Experience, while a level 20 lion would receive 600 Experience.

Savage Males  

The Man-Eaters Have Arrived...

With all the Man-Eating happening around, a few Pariah, Savage and Tsavo Lions have appeared, interested in the lifestyle.
Do you want to risk it and blend your genes with their morbid sentience?

*Males will change every 24 hours.


Savage Males (also referred to as "August Studs", "Maneater Studs", and "Savage Studs") are unlocked by a community effort to kill as many humans as possible in Explore.

Savage Males are male NPCs that you can stud your lionesses to for a fee of 200 Dry Bones or 600 Carrion Beetles per one stud. They are not player-owned, so no need to wait for them to accept your stud request! The main purpose of the Savage Male area is to release new, exclusive bases, mane shapes, and markings that can only be passed down from breeding to a Savage Male. It is important to remember that breeding to a Savage Male does not guarantee that offspring will inherit the stud's base, mane shape, and/or markings.

You also cannot use breeding items on Savage Males. They are not owned by other players and operate simply as NPCs, so there is no way to send any male breeding items to a Savage Male. This includes Grains of Paradise and Buffalo Scrotums. There is a workaround with cub guarantee items; however, it requires you to own a Double Uterus lioness. You can use a cub guarantee item on your stud, breed to your Double Uterus, then breed her to a Savage Male. This will overwrite half of her cubs' genetics with the Savage Male's genetics.

At 2:05am Lioden time, the available stud will switch out and cycle to the next one that is lined up. Once the last unique stud has been displayed, it will cycle back around to the first stud released and loop through them until August ends.

You can breed any of your lionesses with any of the studs, provided she is in heat, she is Very Low (1%) fertility or higher, she is between the ages of 2 years to 14 years, and you have enough currency to cover the cost.


Regardless of fertility, it will only take one attempt to breed your lioness. Infertile lionesses cannot breed. Fertility levels will still affect the chance of mutations, though. It is important to note that, just like breeding to any male in-game, inheriting the Savage/Tsavo/Pariah mane type is not guaranteed. There is a 50% chance it will be passed on to a cub. Mutations on studs are just for aesthetic effect and will not pass.

As of 2018, when the Savage Males area has been unlocked, you will receive the "Maneater" title as well as the "Maneater" achievement the first time you visit this page. You can only unlock the title and achievement once per account.
