    While others are off helping research and guard against the oddities happening in the world right now, Baya and Owahi took the opportunity to mess around a bit in Hayyen’s lab, resulting in some oddities of their own…

    Their unique mixtures seem to have given a boost to Mutations across all species, as well as created some new ones in the process. Hayyen in an attempt to clean up the mess, has some rewards for those helping to catalog the results, as long as you keep this disaster secret.

    ——

    Each Player may submit up to 3 unique designs total.
    All Winners will have their Mutations added to the game, PLUS:

    1st Prize:

    • A one time guaranteed pass of their Mutation to one random offspring during a breeding.
    • Hayyen’s Blessing
    • Baya’s Tincture + Owahi’s Tincture

    2nd Prize:

    • A breeding between two Starter characters of their choice
    • Hayyan’s Blessing
    • Baya’s  Tincture (Increases the odds of random Mutations during breeding by 10%)

    3rd Prize:

    • Hayyan’s Blessing
    • Owahi’s Tincture (Increases the odds of random Mutations during breeding by 5%)

    ——

    Designs:
    -Mutations can be naturally occurring and mimic real world mutation seen in earthly animals, or magical and add fantastic elements to a creature.
    -Mutations can be for Kirunhounds only, Popokee only, or shared between both creatures.
    -Mutations shouldn’t resemble current traits.
    -Mutations that add magical aspects should be neutral to lore, and not add anything outside current game information.

    Submissions:
    – Drawn submissions should be similar in style to the current samples, viewed from profile and should not be overly shaded so designs are easy to see.
    -Written submissions should cleared describe how a Mutation will look and how it will affect the species it covers.
    – Both may include additional text details such as color, placement or size guidelines for new Mutations.

    Entries can be submitted until May 6th. Voting will be polled among players after this.

    Link to artwork of Mutation: Popokee/Kirunhound
    Any written details about the Mutation: The Twinned Mutation (based off of conjoined twins, mythology chimeras, etc.)

    The popokee/kirunhound has two heads, though they don’t always share a personality. So long as the heads follow the popokee/kirunhound’s genotype they can be, but are not required to be identical. They will usually have two necks, one for each head, but they may be crowded onto a single point if desired.

    Tentacle types can be any from the cephalopoda family and range in number.

    Link to artwork of Mutation: Prepare to be frilled

    Any written details about the Mutation: The scales at birth start smooth but as the hound ages, they begin to grow outward/upward into frill like scales. They can form either single sectioned scales or simply grow out along the edges of the normal scales to form on each side.

    Can appear anywhere scales can. Optional if the hounds markings affect this mutation or not. Kirunhound only.
    (Hope this is worded alright)

    Any written details about the Mutation: Fullscale / Full Scale mutation

    The kirunhound’s coat is made of scales instead of hairs. This may be layered scales like fish or dragons, or simply scaly skin as with lizards and crocodiles. This usually makes the coat tough and protective, but in rare cases the scales may be soft and powdery like a butterfly’s wing scales.

    The colour and pattern of the coat is not affected by this mutation.

    Mane and tail hairs, if present, are not affected by this mutation. There may be optional mane-coloured fur accents on any of the legs. If body and tail type is winged, than any of the mane and accent furs will (still) be able to be made of feathers instead.

    The kirunhound’s regular scales, flare mutation and guard mutations (if present), are not affected. The scale type and location will show and express itself as normal.

    Any written details about the Mutation: Budding mutation

    The popokee’s body is covered in buds. These may be sparse or clumped together, but cannot be thick enough to obscure the coat. Buds do not have to be of the same type or genus as the popokee’s main plant, but cannot be a fully grown or mature plant – only young or incomplete growths are possible.

    The buds must all be the same plant, unless the popokee has dual plants, however the buds may vary between such things as; buds, bulbs, seedlings, sprouts, spores, etc.. These growths may vary in age from one another, and be of slightly differing sizes.
