Tale Events typically come in two phases. Access to the second phase is only obtained by completing the first phase. See previous tale events.
This requires players to collect 5 of each of the 5 tokens. Tokens may be obtained by completing certain tasks, given as rewards in the Monsterwood, opened in chests, earned in dungeons, earned in timed challenges, or obtained in other events.
Players can view the tokens they've obtained in their inventory (and filter to them utilizing the scroll/token filter). The tokens will automatically be removed from the inventory sometime after the event ends.
As soon as the event begins, it becomes automatically unlocked for players who have collected all the required tokens. Players do not need to make an additional purchase or exchange tokens.
The event itself operates as a progressive in which players earn cells for the Tale monster.
