On certain logins, you get a login gift--either an item that appears in your inventory, which you can keep, or an npc that will follow you around until you log out and then disappear.
On the 42nd login you will for example get the following message:
This is your 42nd login. You suddenly discover a piece of paper in your hand, something froths up in your mind and you just have to write it on the paper. Afterwards you stare blankly down at the paper not remembering what you just wrote.
The paper itself holds a reference to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and reads:
What do you get when you multiply 6 by nine.
|3||Cabbage||Will follow you|
|10||Fruitbat flavoured badge||You can lick it for a fruity flavour!|
|42||A piece of paper||Contains the Ultimate Question|
|150||Stick The long straight black stick vibrates slightly in your hands, you get a nice massage from it. There is something which looks a bit like a switch down near the base of the stick. Flashing lights rush up and down the side of the stick in a mad progression.||Warranty valid for therapeutic massage use only. Adds a description line "<Pronoun> is surrounded by an aura of bees."|
|200||A hairy cat||A hairy cat that will spout cat-advice and follow you|
