The current June storyline, introduced in 2018, was implemented as a rehaul of the old June event, The Floods. Within this new storyline, you meet the Egyptian Gods Anubis, Bast, and Seth, who require your help to defeat Apophis, the Serpent of Chaos.
As of June 2018, the Rise of the Serpent event has its own storyline involving the three Egyptian Gods mentioned above. The storyline begins with Chapter 1 unlocking on June 1st at 00:00/12:00am Lioden time. Chapter 2 unlocks on June 3rd at 02:05am Lioden time. Chapter 3, the final chapter, unlocks on June 20th at 02:05am Lioden time.
For ease of convenience, the chapters and their branches have been split up into their own separate pages. Please click on the individual button images to be taken to that chapter's page.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to earn every reward from the storyline on one account. The rewards you receive are based on the deity you align with in Chapter 3. All rewards are displayed below.
The following items were previously rewarded for completing the storyline, and have since been retired to their respective deities' temple where they can be purchased with 400 Khepri Beetles per applicator.
Once you have finished Chapter 1, and if Chapters 2 and 3 are not yet unlocked, you are able to complete essence quests with your chosen deity to receive a small amount of Experience.
Today, you have visited the Temple of [Anubis/Bast/Seth] again. The mummy is still absorbing the essence you've trapped in the Ankh. Perhaps you could help?
You sit down on the safe side of the rift. With your heart still pounding in awe of the gigantic chasm, you look around the devastated landscape. It's time to bring back some slithering essence to the vessel of [Anubis/Bast/Seth].
In order to complete this quest, you must collect 5 total Slithering Essence from Chthonic Snakes in Explore. When you come across the following encounter containing any Chthonic Snake NPC, you must choose the Bind option.
|Watch out! It's a Slithering [NPC], sent after you to weaken you and the godly vessel!|
|Attack!||Initiates a battle with a Slithering [NPC].||+2 Khepri Beetles if your battle buddy is present and +1 Chaos Snake Scale if the battle is won.
|Bind||You use the incense to bind the chthonic beast and gather its energy into the Ankh. The drained snake doesn't feel so good and dissipates into dust.||+1 Slithering Essence|
Once more, you carefully return the Ankh to the mummy. With a familiar crinkling noise, the creature opens its eyes and looks at you. "Perfect. I can feel the energy siphoning through yet again. This will need some time before the connection is strong enough. Check on me tomorrow, and see if I am whole by then. If not, let us repeat the process." The mummy stays in its place, but does not close its eyes.
Once you have finished Chapter 2, as well as once the storyline is finished, you are able to complete daily quests in order to receive extra rewards.
The daily quests reset upon rollover, and you can take another quest again the following day. If the quest you have taken is too difficult, you can pay a fee of 50 SB to take a different quest.
Anubis is resting next to you, watching the clouds swirl above your head. "I have come up with a few challenges that could let us get stronger..."

"It was a good training. As my vessel isn't fully synchronised with me, I need some time to rest. Perhaps I will visit the Duat when you fall asleep. We can try again tomorrow." Anubis lies down with his ears perked, ready to guard you as he rests.
Bast is taking a bath in the flickering sun rays that are cutting through the clouds. "Ready to train today? I thought of a nice challenge."

"That was a good practice session. Your body gets tougher every day, and with my blessings, this thick skin of yours gives you much endurance and stamina to keep going on. Let me just gather my energy at the next sunrise, and we can go again."
Seth is resting next to you, carving a spear out of a branch. "Ready to train today? I have a good idea for a challenge."

"I am pleased with the training today. I will practice at the next sunrise on my own a little more. I'll be around to keep an eye on the slithering creatures, so do not worry. I'll give you another challenge tomorrow." Seth pats your back and walks away to practice stabbing his spear on a nearby hedgehog.
In one of the chambers, there's an altar of Shai, just as you were told there would be. You might wish to light the incense to change your path and go back in time to align with another god.
At any point prior to the merged God battle against Apophis in Chapter 3, you are able to Light the Incense to align yourself with another deity. This is a helpful and convenient way to purchase items from all Temples without needing to trade with other players. You are able to change your alignment an unlimited amount of times, with the only caveat being that it must be done before you battle against Apophis after merging with a deity.
Anubis is not saying much. He just looks at you, expecting you to lead the way. When you ask him if he wants to go somewhere, he murmurs, "You decide. I'm fine with whatever."
You try to make a few jokes to make Anubis smile a little. He looks at you like they're not even funny. Odd... you thought the chicken crossing the road to the OTHER SIDE would really be something he'd laugh at.
When you rest together, you try grooming Anubis out of habit, to be social and... stuff. He jumps up and moves further away. "Thank you, but I'm good. No touching," he mumbles.
Tonight, you're gazing at the stars, trying to find a few gaps in the dusty clouds. Anubis looks up at them with you and tilts his head a bit. "That's Sopdet, or Sirius, the dog star. The dog days were the good days in Egypt. The Nile flooded and brought back life." He goes quiet for a second. "Sirius actually has a second star orbiting it... they travel together in the sky. I think we're a little bit like Sirius and its second star."
Anubis is too busy biting the base of his tail to acknowledge your greeting. He's absolutely irritated. Maybe Wepwawet had fleas? Oops.
Tonight, Anubis is laying down with his paws up, looking at the night sky. When you approach him and lean over, you see the reflections of stars in his big, black eyes. He pushes your muzzle away. "I'm watching the stars. You know, you're not invisible. Pesky cats..."
Anubis asks you to slow down a bit. He's out of breath, not used to moving so much, or being in full control of a body. Perhaps using somebody else's vessel wasn't the best idea.
"I have the urge to howl at night. I keep it in the best that I can, just letting it boil up inside of me. It's... a little embarrassing."
"Bast... I saw her temple is still intact. I had... a small romantic relationship with her, once. It was like bathing in flowers: delicate petals touching your body, the scent kissing your nose... she was all of that, and much, much more. I hope I can visit her after everything is over."
"So, Seth's temple is right there. And you didn't pick him. You picked his weakling son that he was never proud of. I wouldn't be surprised if he revives his vessel by himself out of rage, just to punish you."
"I don't think I'm worthy of your choice, but I am thankful you have more faith in me than I ever had. It feels... nice."
"What do you mean, ‘I smell weird'? The incense oils all over my body, is that what you mean? I smell way better than you, and the dried blood from your last meal... yuck."
"Lions are unique in their feline ways. They live in groups, they have relationships, they interact, they fight. The male leads the pride and takes down other kings. The females fiercely protect the cubs of the whole family. No wonder humanity has always chosen you as a symbol of pride and royalty. You are oddly human."
During today's nap, Anubis barks, startling you awake. You lift your head and blink, surprised, finding him asleep with his paws twitching as he dreams. Awww.
"I used to participate in wars, leading my people to victory. I think I still have it in me, but without you, that spark would not reignite."
"Did you know that, centuries ago, humans dressed cats in golden jewelry and allowed them to eat from their own plates at the table? Do you think humans still do that?"
"I cherish the memories of grand festivals that were thrown in my name. The amount of wine drank in those days would easily make another Nile river, but red. Oh, you don't know what wine is? Remind me to give you a taste the next time we're in the temple."
Bast is rolling in the sand like a playful kitten, showing off her fluffy white belly. You join in, because relaxation time is just as important as training time.
You search for Bast after a short nap. You spot her pawing at a dead viper, undoubtedly playing with her prey.
As you stop to rest after a long walk, Bast wanders further away and crouches suddenly, her butt shaking before pouncing at a critter. She proceeds to play with it before eating it. She seems to act more like a cat than a lion.
Bast sighs heavily. "I am a little disappointed, admittedly. I thought the world would look so much more different than before... Oh? Can you take me to the human settlements when we're done here?"
When you sit down for a small rest, Bast grooms her paws, then yours. That's... very nice of her. She has a truly nurturing nature.
"I was actually married to Anubis once in the past. It was such a romantic time... and it warms my heart that maybe, after everything is over, I could visit his temple and speak with him." She smiles as she mentions the other god. Isn't he a jackal? Ew. Okay, yeah, they did have human forms, too. Otherwise, that offspring would be a little weird.
Bast yawns, asking if you can take a little break. When you sit down, she climbs on top of you and falls asleep with her paws hanging from your side. Are you the royal pillow now?
"So, Seth's temple was untouched as well? Considering how powerful of a warrior he was, I am very honoured that you have chosen me over him. I like to think I'm not too shabby, myself, though."
"We take the form of beings that worship us, so that they feel connected with us. To humans I appear as a beautiful woman. Obviously to you, I am a lioness. There are some cat features here and there - old habits die hard, I suppose."
"I have been invited to Ra's journey through the darkness, and I have killed the Serpent many times. Have faith in me! The sun will guide us."
"Do you think I should put some makeup on? I feel a little naked without my eyeliner," she chuckles.
Bast is batting at your tail as you swat it around, deep in thought.
"If we put a monkey on your submale's back, could we have a race? I love racing so, so much. No, I understand that YOU would be the one doing the running, but *I* will be the one doing the winning."
"Let's bet some shiny beetles that I can strangle a snake with my bare hands. If it bites and kills me, at least we know you can revive me, heh."
"Come on, let's wrestle!" Surprised and unprepared, you're slammed to the ground by Seth's fighting moves. "Too slow, cub."
Seth is resting on your back and stroking your mane in silence.
"Don't pester me today, mortal cub. I am training." Seth has no patience to converse today, so you sit and watch him in silence for a while as he does push-ups.
You stretch after a small nap and check on Seth. He's plucked the feathers off of a falcon that he hunted down, and is eating it raw.
You turn around, feeling a little irked by a biting insect - but you notice it's Seth, trying to fork your tail tuft into two split ends.
Seth is resting on the ground, drawing hieroglyphs in the sand. You see pictures of a lion, a Sha dog animal... thing, an owl, trees, some various signs... and a giant erect penis with a line going down from it. Is... is that a real pictograph? When you ask him, he explains it means "husband, or a man, depending on the context." You wince your eyes and smudge the drawing, unhappy that you don't know the context of it. Seth huffs and jumps at you, wrestling with your snarling mouth.
"Anubis is my son. I can't believe his temple was untouched. It is good to know that. Maybe after everything is over, I could visit him. We haven't spoken in centuries."
"Bast just wasn't my type. I couldn't care less if her temple was destroyed or not. Maybe she's your type, though. You know, feline features and all."
Seth is humming something, but you don't know the tune. Maybe it's an ancient Egyptian anthem sang during festivals dedicated to him. You wonder if it might be depressing to him to know he'll never hear the music he loved so much ever again.
"We take the form of beings that worship us, so that they feel connected with us. To humans I appear as a beautiful man. Perhaps you dig sleek weredogs. Nobody's judging you."
"What creature am I? I am the Sha. No, perhaps it doesn't explain much. What do you want to see me as?" Seth looks at you, then at himself with a minor irritation. Perhaps he would like to have a lion vessel after all.
"You know, I've been watching you during battles and you have pretty impressive and muscular paws. Can I touch the paw pads?" Seth doesn't really wait for your permission and hastily grabs your paw, pressing his fingers against your paw pads to bring out your claws, which he touches eagerly to check out their texture and sharpness. It feels kinda nice, so you just let him do whatever he needs to do to satisfy his curiosity.
"Lions have many wives, huh? I've noticed it is very convenient for breeding. Do you have many husbands as well?" Seth asks you, wondering about the habits of lions. He notices your tilted head. He narrows his brows and looks away. "I don't mind either, myself, as long as your lover doesn't cut your testicles off." He murmurs angrily and starts to viciously stroke your mane. Maybe it's time to change the subject. The past is the past.
