Star Days was a holiday event released with Update 29.8, mostly involving Ticker in Fortuna. Unlike most events, there were no missions associated with it.


Ticker dialogue

Upon logging in, the Tenno received an inbox message from Ticker.

Star Days

It’s Star Days, Stardust.

Stop by. I’ve gathered a few delightful curiosities just for you. Let’s celebrate! These are your days, and days for everyone we care about.

Yours,
Ticker

During the event, Ticker, the decorations vendor in Fortuna, was wearing a version of the new Eros Wings ephemera – hers was outlined in neon, with flapping animations. Her market stall also displayed large neon square outlines. When spoken to, Ticker would have unique dialogue and an offering of Star Days items.

(Star Days trailer) Ticker: “Love spreads, Stardust. Sow it far and wide, and fortune will favour you. Ever a lesson that bears repeating, and not just on Star Days. Unfamiliar, are we? Come see us on Fortuna, then. It’s high time you earned your wings.”

(greeting the Tenno) Ticker: “Starrrrdust! You made it! It would not do to stand Ticker up on this of all days. Your big day.”

(opening Star Days shop) Ticker: “Star Days are all about the things that keep these planets spinning. Love, Stardust. Love in all its forms. The love of a planet for the stranger who turned their fortunes around. That would be you, Stardust. Give love away, and it multiplies. We rarely know what we mean to others. Ticker means to change that.”

(if the Tenno idles) Ticker: “You raised yourself. You’ll have questions, and nobody will be there to answer them. I want you to know: I’m here, Stardust. I won’t always have the answer, but I will listen, and what I tell you will be true.”

(if the Tenno idles) Ticker: “The only family that extraordinary creatures such as we are permitted is the family whom we choose – and a fine family that is. Here’s to us, Stardust.”

(if the Tenno idles) Ticker: “It’s trite, but it has to be said: Be brave with that heart of yours, Stardust. At the end of the day, those we love are what matters. Don’t leave things unsaid.”

(if the Tenno idles) Ticker: “Everybody’s hurting, Stardust. Some of them hurt you. That’s a given. Secret to a happy life? Find the ones worth hurting for. Happy Star Day.”

(if the Tenno idles) Ticker: “I was never much one for looks or physique. I longed for those who sang songs only I could hear. Falling into the eyes of someone like that, a girl feels like she’s getting away with something.”

(if the Tenno idles) Ticker: “Love isn’t just for lovers, Stardust. It’s for friends, family, your bestest kavat. Love is an act of forgiveness, a tender look, a silent understanding. Today is about all of us and knowing that we have more binding us together than pushing us apart.”

(if the Tenno idles) Ticker: “Star Day celebrates life and love and the value of those closest to us. Heaven may have nicer weather, but you can’t beat Hell for the company. Here’s to you, Stardust.”

(if the Tenno idles) Ticker: “I have loved, and I have lost. ‘Their absence has gone through me like thread through a needle,’ as someone once said. ‘All that I do is stitched with their colour.'”

(if the Tenno idles) Ticker: “‘Star Day’ is a Ticker tradition… begun for just one special person. Now… I give it to the world. If you want to know the story, you’ll find it scattered across the Vallis. Today is too happy a day to tell it.”

(if the Tenno idles) Ticker: “Words and deeds are seeds, Stardust. They may seem like nothing in the moment, but they can fall from you and begin growing in others. Fortuna used to be barren, is what I’m saying. You’ve given us an orchard. Happy Star Day.”

(if the Tenno idles) Ticker: “Spotted Biz and Little Duck boarding her Rail tractor, bound for parts unknown. I guess they celebrate today in their own way. Lots of history, those two. They’ll work it out.”

(if the Tenno idles) Ticker: “We’ve got two families: biological and logical. Roky taught me that one. Star Day is for both those families… and anyone else besides.”

(if the Tenno idles) Ticker: “Nobody’s as hard on Eudico as Eudico. She’s made mistakes, and her demons are loud. I try to dazzle ’em with love. Millions are alive today because there’s a light in there that people believe in. We don’t often see things as they are, so much as we are.”

(if the Tenno idles) Ticker: “Two Ostrons are freed during a daring operation, marry, have a child. I’m sure you’ll be pleased to know that the young ‘Tenno’ Helnung is doing quite well and taking after their mother on the scaffolds.”

(exiting Star Days shop after purchase) Ticker: “We’ll be here.”

(exiting Star Days shop after purchase) Ticker: “See you soon.”

(exiting Star Days shop after purchase) Ticker: “Treat yourself.”

(exiting Star Days shop after purchase) Ticker: “Happy Star Day, Stardust.”


Star Days affections

Ticker offered a variety of Star-Days-themed items. All items were redeemed with Fortuna debt-bonds. There were no new missions associated with the event; Tenno would earn debt-bonds in the traditional ways (completing bounties on the Orb Vallis or purchasing debt portfolios from Ticker) and then spend the debt-bonds at Ticker’s shop.
