Greetings Adventurers,


We hope that you've been having fun adventures with the adorable Shai so far!

As she goes from place to place during her adventures within the Black Desert world, Shai can't help but miss her hometown of Florin and Valentine. Can you help her meet back up with Valentine?

Be the first to bring Shai back to Florin by Donkey during this international competition taking place across 10 different regions to secure prizes for you and your entire gaming region. Even if you don't manage to make first place, don't worry, you are still guaranteed a participation reward!
