The Full Corn Moon

September’s Corn Moon refers to the time of year after the autumn equinox when crops were gathered by Native Americans. Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice are the chief Native American staples that were ready for gathering. September’s most familiar moon name however is harvest moon, referring to this full moon’s particularly bright appearance and early rise, which lets farmers continue harvesting into the night.

Anything special or different in this 18th edition?

Yes! Since last month, Empire Avenue became Empire.Kred including new domain and new look. If two years ago I said that we all had kred somewhere, Kred now says that the score was just the tip of the iceberg

See you soon ;-)

New domain, new look: Welcome to Empire.Kred

Last week we switched over from to Empire.Kred, today we switch to a new design that evokes our Kred brand but also keeps what made the former Empire Avenue a special place. Without further ado, some quick highlights!

  1. Mobile Friendly. This new design is much more mobile friendly and we’ll continue to enhance that aspect of the design in the future!Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 10.49.14 AM
  2. Reduces Clutter. By switching to a single column format where possible, we’ve forced a reduction in clutter in the interface which should encourage new members to learn the ropes fasterScreen Shot 2015-09-09 at 10.32.29 AM
  3. Kred Scores. We’ve added Kred scores to your profiles. If you have Twitter, we’ve already given you your Kred Score. Connect your Twitter account to get your Kred score included. We will announce more on how Kred scores will be added to the game later.Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 10.53.13 AM
  4. Visual Missions. We’ve changed the Missions layout to be much more visual.
  5. Mission Images. As part of the above change you can now add images to Missions when you create your next Mission!Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 10.54.49 AM
  6. And last but not least: A brand new site to open Empire.Kred with! But you’ll have to log out to see that :)

There are all sorts of small little tweaks we’ve made and we look forward to your feedback through here or the Empire.Kred Communities

Sir Rudigers Piefest Friday September 4 through Thursday September 10 #EmpireAve




Sir Rudiger says As a royal squirrel, I can scurry through the cyber tubes of the interwebs unseen and unheard. Which is how I learned that PIE FEST will return to Empire Avenue exactly one year after its debut.

We will be throwing pies at people we know , at people we want to know and randomly at anyone who comes within range.

Each person you throw pie at will get an eaves reward .

* the biggest pie release of the year (maybe in history?)
* HUGE pie sale to help all players increase the number of shares they can buy in other players
* Best of all, PIE FIGHTS are back! (Did you know this is the event that brought pay it forward pie fights to the Avenue?)
* DAILY achievements and contests to reward those who log in daily
* Enormous eaves sales in both the leader and general shop

I didn’t get every detail… but I heard enough to know that this is one event you simply can not miss.

When you join in

* PieFight icon will show up on your home page and you’ll have throwing pies in both mod and personal accounts

* Eaves go on sale in both Leader Shop and General Shop

* Pie goes on sale in both Leader Shop and General Shop

* Throwing pies go on sale on home page 11989233_10154231670674741_1277095107_o

(Not buying packs of throwing pies? They are cheap, but not essential to play. You can also return pie by running a Pay It Forward Invest Mission for your competitor.)


If you post your ticker in this thread, you’ll get an achievement when event starts. (Or after if you post after.) Only post if you plan to return pies thrown at you. It’s unlocked so you can post anytime.…


Sir Rudiger , Thrower of Pies

PS He is happy to have pies thrown at him too :)

The Full Red Moon

There were a few tribes who referred to the August moon as the Full Red Moon because at that time of year, the haze in the sky makes the moon appear red. Other names include “Corn Moon“, “Sturgeon Moon“, “Green Corn Moon” and “Grain Moon

Sir Rudiger’s Pay It Forward Mission Mayhem Friday, August 21 – Monday, August 24 #EAvPay4ward


Sir Rudiger Says SQRL

I want YOU to run at least mission one mission for another player. I, Sir Rudiger, plan to run ZILLIONS of missions and encourage you to follow my fine example. Pick a newbie, pick a mentor, pick members of your favorite community… or better yet, pick one of each!

I, Sir Rudiger, want to encourage EVERY PLAYER to compete for fabulous prizes. (You may not have heard, but I, Sir Rudiger, am a very wealthy squirrel and I like to share my golden acorns. Well, it’s not so much that I like to share. It’s that I can’t fit them all in my triple decker treehouse castle, and my butler gets very annoyed about rearranging the pile.)

You can win special prizes for the most creative mission, and many more exciting categories I, Sir Rudiger, will make up as we go along. All mission categories are eligible… except for missions about you. Because this event is your chance to shine the spotlight on your fellow players. You can:

* run invest missions
* direct players to discover your favorite Facebook page (not run by you)
* introduce players to a newbie’s twitter feed
* and much, much, much more. Surprise me with your creativity and I’ll surprise YOU with a big Pay It Forward mission for you.

The more missions you run, the more chances you have to win a random prize from me, Sir Rudiger.

The more missions you do, the more likely that your fellow Empire players will pick you for a fantabulous Pay It Forward mission.

READY…. SET…. GO [when the clock hits midnight in your time zone! Or why wait? I think it is already Friday some places!]

You can join the forum and fun here 

And a reminder that the following week Dominique and EAv Gangstas will be organizing their Full Moon event .  Great time to meet new players and connect with people around the web.

Vees are Vacating! Important Announcement

Starting today, we will begin the transition towards one single virtual currency on Empire Avenue/Empire.Kred. Vees was introduced as a points system for you to exchange towards Amazon and other Gift Cards. As we move towards a simpler and even more global and exciting Empire.Kred, we want to move to a single currency. To that effect we will be retiring Vees.

As an exciting option in phasing out Vees, we are launching a program to donate your Vees towards fighting cancer. For every 150V donated through our Shop page, we will donate $1 to the World Cancer Research Fund. Our goal is to reach $1000 or 150,000V, but if we surpass this goal we will consider donating more!

Donate Vees to Cancer

Between now and August 20th, 2015, you will be able to exchange your Vees to Amazon Gift Cards as usual. After August 20th, 2015, the option to redeem Vees for Gift Cards will no longer be available.

Until August 20th, 2015, you will be able to exchange Vees for Eaves at an awesome rate of 20,000E per 1V (compared to the usual 300E per 1V).

After August 20th, 2015 we will exchange all Vees remaining to Eaves at this same great rate of 20,000E per 1V.


1. Will I ever be able to exchange Eaves for Gift Cards?

We are investigating using one currency for all things including being able to exchange for rewards. However, we have not firmed any plans on how that will happen.

2. I bought Vees in the last two weeks, can I just get my money back?

Yes, we will refund you for any Vees purchases in the past month. You must not have used the Vees that you purchased. Please submit a support request.

3. Can I offer Missions for Vees?

No. From this point onwards there will be no more Missions for Vees. You must convert per the options of Gift Cards, Eaves or Charitable Donation.

4. Can I buy upgrades with Vees?

Yes, you will be able to spend Vees for upgrades in the Empire Store until August 20th, 2015. Vees will not be available as an option after August 20th, 2015.
