Rock Pets that Rock, and Feathers that fall.

Well, Wizards, the timer is "up" , and we have:
Finally, a pet that *really* rocks!

 From (Your Pet Rock) ..(emphasis, mine)

I recommend starting to train your pet rock at a very young age, this will make your pet more powerful. Beyond training your pet in the Pet Pavilion, rocks are such intelligent beings that they are born knowing tricks. Here I will mention what your pet can do....

Note: if you want him to go get a checkup at the doctor, dont be worried when they say theres no heart beat. Dr. Purreau will be very happy to give your adult pet rock a clean bill of health for hatching purposes! "


 You know, *part* of me screams "Elaborate 'April Fools' prank", (and , if so, 'Well played, KI!), but I'm suspicious by nature, and a bit of a theorycrafter, and I just can't dismiss this out-of-hand.

A lot of you may be too young to remember the 'Pet Rock' fad of the 1970's. That same 'foolish' idea made Gary Dahl a millionaire, overnight.
The pet rock sold for $3.95 and estimates state Dahl sold over 5 million of his pet rocks


KI's Pet Rock is a Crowns purchase, and has stats, and more importantly: GROWTH. Herein lies my suspicion. There's just *too much* effort, even for an epic April Fool's joke. I'm gonna wager these rocks aren't "Fool's Gold". I'm wagering 2900 Crowns they aren't, at least. How much is $3.95 in Crowns?
I may be a fool, but I'm definitely going to get one. I honestly believe there's something more going on here, and the ones who dismiss it as "a joke" and miss out may, ultimately, be the ones who are fooled.

If nothing else, he's kinda adorable...for a rock.

2 more Feathers have fallen!
...and here are today's hints for these 2 latest 'feathers'... there are now 4, (total), coded 'feathers' to locate on this blog, with more on the way. Remember, you'll need ALL 14 to get your Swiftshadow Wings.
