Not sure where to start in getting into game activities? A new character can do these right away:
  • Resource Gathering - Draw or write about your character hunting, fishing, or looking for neat rocks to earn in game items.
  • Character journeys - Draw or write about your character's life and backstory, this lets them access Breeding, boosts to Gathering, and Jobs.
  • Events - Monthly events and World Story Events are happening all the time in the game, earn big rewards, and help advance the world lore.
These activities are a little more advance and require either characters to level up, or to have the needed items in game to access:
  • Questing - Draw or write about special story lines with special guidelines, earn extra rare rewards and unlock unique in game Locations.
  • Crafting - Take all those Common Items and turn them into something more interesting.
  • Breeding - Take a chance at the Generic RNG lottery, smash together the NPCs in game, or your own characters to create new MYO babies.
  • Jobs - Coming soon! Take up a trade and submit monthly prompts to earn rewards.
