    With the site opening up to the first wave of live testing, I wanted to put together some special events to give players some rewards for helping test out different aspects of the game.

    Each of these events will run until the end of December, giving everyone time to draw, write or RP on the new site.

    • Players may submit as many creative works as they wish for each event unless otherwise noted.
    • Some Event rewards are limited to the first submission.
    • All submissions have a random chance to earn extra raffle tickets, and other rare items when registered by staff.
    • Players that join the event and submit ANY artwork, stories, or role play an event will have the opportunity to receive 500 Kouneen and one random Tincture or Dye at the end of the event.

    Artwork and writing should follow the site’s basic rules, and will be counted toward a character’s total SP once the site fully opens.



    Welcoming in the start of a new journey should always begin with a really great party! Draw, write or RP about your character and another player’s character (or a site starter) enjoying the festivities before heading out on a great adventure. Backgrounds can feature any region.

    Rewards:

    • +5SP bonus to the artist’s character. (Players can receive this bonus ONCE.)
    • Both players who’s characters are featured will be given one raffle ticket.


    Scoring a free treat is always a great way to start a day. Draw, write or RP your character snagging a delicious snack either by chance or other more illegal means. Backgrounds can feature any location.

    Rewards:

    • 50% chance of earning a random crafted food dish.
    • One raffle ticket.


    Let’s add one more official marking to the Kirunhound guidelines, and you get to help design it! For this event game, players will need to do the following:

    • Draw an uncolored Kirunhound that shows off the marking, similar to the current site samples.
    • Describe the marking’s range and rules. Can it be soft or hard edged and does it affect scale color, ect.
    • Describe the color range this marking can be. Black, white, or another color from the coat range?

    Just remember markings should offer players some room to be unique in how it’s used, so don’t be too restrictive in yours! Winning designs will be converted to the site template, so you do not need to worry about how clean or well drawn your sample is, the idea is what will be voted on. Players may submit 3 total marking designs for this event.

    Rewards:

    • One raffle ticket per design submitted.
    • 50% chance of earning a random Tincture or Dye.
    • Winning design will be added to the marking list, and player will receive an item that allows them to add this marking to a future character. (Genotype or Azoth creation!)

    And what are these raffle tickets, why do I want to amass these silly items?? You can see everyone’s tickets here! Once the event ends Admins will be rolling some random numbers from the list to give out some prizes…

    Raffle Prizes:

    • 1st Prize: (2 winners) One of the two unique Twins. These are Alters, with rare traits and unique markings! Winners will receive larger PSD, approval ready character sheet and get to pick the character’s name, sex and home land.
    • 2nd Prize: (2 winners) One Silver Azoth.
    • 3rd Prize: (3 winners) Choice of breeding slot to one of the Kirunhound Starters, and 1,000 Kouneen.

     

     

    So get drawing, writing and finding role play partners! Once you have something to share, use the following form to get your rewards counted:

    • Link to Character Import:
    • Link to artwork included:
    • Any items being used to boost outcomes: (This can include banked items)

    Please do not reply to comments by other players, as it clutters this for staff approval.

    Hayhurst ran into this goofball while enjoying the festivities in his home region of Atlosian Wetlands. Baya animatedly tells him a joke and the two have a good laugh.

            It’s still showing two of my tickets under twewme’s name, on my end.

            (I also got logged out earlier and was told the site’s no longer a secure connection? I reset my password but it took a few tries to get the email. Is there a specific place I should report stuff like that?)

      @sredni

      Does the mutation thing on the silver azoth mean I can specifically make the character have whiskers (shown?) or is it just a random guaranteed carried mutation? What coat colors are available with each azoth?

      And since @twewme didn’t win anything, if she wants one can I give her a pup from my first successful litter, once breeding is unlocked?

      (Though I do want to make a Hayyan’s Blessing before I do any breeding.)

    @asterleaf

    @arcanezoo Before I submit my breeding request, I’ve got a couple of questions:

    •There’s a “x2” by my name. Does that mean I get two breeding slots?

    •Do breeding slots expire? As in, would I be able to call upon my breeding slot later in the game when I have more characters?

    • #1341

      ArcaneZoo Admin
      Keymaster
      @arcanezoo

      Correct, two of your raffle tickets were rolled for the Breeding Slot prizes. You can pick two slots total, either two permissions to one Starter character, or a single slot to two different Starters.

      Breeding slots never expire, staff keep them on record until they get used in game. You can come back to these any time you want. (Staff is setting up a way for players to use Starter Slot prizes before Breeding officially opens, if you end up wanting to use these early, we’ll have a forum thread open this week!)

    Seeing all the art and new potential markings gets me hyped. I look forward to art jamming with the group! Grats to all, here’s to much more in the future. 😀

    I am going to hold my breeding slot for a little bit (need to think on it!) and will reply here as soon as I am committed.
