Zone Expansion + Feature Update!

Posted 2 months ago :: Last edited 3 weeks ago by IIIXKitsuneXIII
==July 1st 2021==
 
Further update to Zones!
After reviewing progress towards raids this last year and examining some user feedback (particularly from our more active users, you know who you are ;p) we've determined that Yes, Raids are in fact too difficult to trigger at both current activity levels and current goal levels for each zone! We miss Raids, too!
Similarly, the Zone Expansion update made our old system of tracking rather uh... obsolete.
 
So we've come to you with some small quality of life updates to Zone Tracking!
  1. We've changed all zones to a 250 Adventure scale! This is to match with the fact that all zones are easily accessible now, with the possible exceptions of Antikutan and Gusting Caverns, depending on how you view getting the skills to adventure there.
  2. Adventures are now weighted. What this means in practice, is that Beginner/Medium/Harsh take "more" from the zone. This is both closer to how zone depletion originally worked (if any of you remember the old maximum number of resources guage instead of total number of adventures), and will make it easier to trigger raids. Specifically: Beginner Adventures count for 1 per ketucari, Medium counts for 2, and Harsh counts for 3. These numbers and the totals may be changed at a later point if we determine that it's now too easy to trigger raids.
  3. Battles now count towards zone depletion! These are NOT weighted, and all battles will only count for 1 per ketucari.

As a reminder, there is a cooldown between Raids (only a month) and only one Raid can happen in a month, in order to give the admin team proper rest time and the ability to process anything that might be backburnered by there being an Active Raid.

 

TL;DR
Zone updates resulted in Zone Depletion Rebalancing, Raids should be easier to achieve now.
Beginner Adventures remain 1 adventure and Battles now count for 1 adventure
Medium Adventures now count for 2 towards zone depletion
High/Harsh Adventures now count for 3 towards zone depletion.

 

Also keep your eyes peeled in the next month, we've got something planned to hopefully help showcase and draw interest to all of the new fauna.

 
 
==May 18th 2021==
 
Hello, everyone! We have a huge update for you all! The short of it is that zones have been massively expanded, which brings changes to multiple areas of the group!
 
First off, let’s go over what’s new in the zones themselves!
 
  • Zone pages have been transferred to the site. You can find them linked on the dA group's front page!
  • Each zone now has beginner, medium, and harsh levels. You can find relevant drops for each level in each zone on their pages!
  • It is worth noting that while ketucari of any armor level now have an opportunity to hit any zone, the armor requirements for quest completion in each zone remain the same.
 
Next up, let’s talk about adventure changes as a result of the expansion!
  • New items have been added to adventure rolls! A lot of these are related to the new crafting disciplines, which we’ll go over in more detail below.
  • The adventure page has also been transferred to the site, with an updated submission form. Please check this out and use it in your submissions from now on! Adventures submitted before the update will still be rolled normally, and in the difficulty the zone was before the update!
  • Items for the cooking crafting discipline will be dropping in reaping adventures, while items for the engineering discipline will be dropping in prospecting adventures.
 
Now for battles!
  • We have added a LOT of new fauna, and some of the old fauna have moved difficulty levels within their zones!
  • Okurai have been removed from the game.
  • Some animals are missing pet versions-- these will be added in the near future! These pets are: Striped Tiag, Uise, Red-Throated Quilldog, Artistrict, Dellafin, and the Plains Lythersnitch.
  • If you navigate to the stash files attached to each animal, you will notice that their information contains things like “medium-hitting” and “hard-hitting”. In battles, defeating fauna labelled as “low-hitting” will give the default number of item rolls as a reward. Defeating a “medium-hitting” animal will give you one extra roll, while “hard-hitting” animals will net you 2 extra item rolls!
  • Some of the drops from each animal may have changed slightly as well.
There have been some changes to skills as well! Boon skills have seen a rework to make them more useful after adventure stats have reached their cap. These skills must be listed as bonuses on the adventure form if you wish to use them!
  • Prosperous now gives extra gold
  • Fortune seeker gives an extra roll in artifacts
  • Iron-willed gives an extra roll in ore/gems!
  • Observant gives an extra roll in herbs/cooking ingredients
  • Hunter gives an extra roll in animal parts
  • Keen Sight will now give a treasure chest roll in Terendum, Viridian Tangle, Ilahaesa Mountains, Singing Vale, Gusting Caverns
  • Aquatic will now give a treasure chest roll in Salamander Island, Plains of Messus, Terendum, and Kandriya in addition to the Obsidian Bluffs
  • Thick skin will now give a treasure chest roll in Kanibar Snowfields, Sunye Desert, Viridian Tangle, Shalekesh, Antikutan, Molten Highlands
  • Keen Sight, Aquatic, and Thick Skin must now be listed under bonuses on the adventure form as well.
 
Crafting has also seen a huge overhaul. The days of only being able to master one discipline are over!
  • Crafting is now tied to individual ketucari, and you can read all about how to unlock all the disciplines on the new crafting page!
  • Two new disciplines have been added: cooking and engineering! They bring a lot of new recipes to the table, so be sure to check them out.
  • The bait and forage items previously found in alchemy have been moved to cooking.
  • There are some new recipes in the old disciplines as well (some more than others) so it’s worth taking a gander at those pages, too.
  • Codices for the new legendaries will available in the raids of the following zones:
  • Salamander Soup: Salamander Island & Viridian Tangle
  • Lover's Banquet: Obsidian Bluffs & Blasting Moors
  • Ambrosia Ale: Singing Vale & Silverglade
  • Distress Beacon: Gusting Cavern & Antikutan
  • Scenic Hologram: Bayan Plateau & Jordskarn
  • Divine Heirloom: Sunye Wastes & Ilahaesa Mountains
  • Please note that since these items are new, some of their uses and the items needed to craft them may change as we monitor how they work in the game.
  • Alchemy, Armorsmithing, and Archaeology Licenses have been removed from the Marketplace a result of this update.
 
  • A new item has been added to the Marketplace that will allow you to add your ketucari’s pet(s) to their import sheet!
 
And that’s all for the feature updates! Lastly, I want to go over some staffing updates as well!
  • Goo-Lion and pawstepsinthesnow have joined the admin team!
  • If you’re part of the Discord, you may already be aware, but for those who are not:
  • You'll be steadily seeing ASimpleMoon playing an even bigger role in the group than she already does. This is because she has joined me (tidesage) as a group co-founder and will be sharing responsibilities and making group decisions as such. As big life changes are steadily pulling me away from online things, I will be taking a back seat in the group and sticking around mainly to answer lore questions and create group art. The group couldn’t be in better hands and I know it will thrive with Moon at the helm!
 
And that’s all for today, everyone! We hope you enjoy the new update and can’t wait to see what you all create with the content!
 

What a Load of Shift 2021

Ketu Pantheon - Darhaskos by Umbrafen

What a Load of Shift 2021! 

 
It's that time of year again! Darhaskos doesn't usually like to come out and play, but it seems that he was in the mood for one particularly pesky prank! A handful of Ketucari have woken up transformed into new bodies! What in the world is happening? It appears Darhaskos has put you into the shoes of the other races of Velukaelo. The magic is strong, but is bound to wear off in a few hours. Maybe you can learn to harness this skill and use the magic as your own? Or maybe you just want to go home and sleep it off? (You weenie. Get out of bed.)

EVENT ENDS 4-30-21*

EXTENDED TO 5-7-2021 (MAY 7)

 This event is reoccurring, and will happen again in April 2022.


Winners:

The winner of the starter slots is EverlastingStables!

The winner of the Strong Herbal Brew is CeriMond!

The winner of the Herbal Brew is LunaKirran!


Hibridi King Gunagi by Umbrafen




 
Note: If you want, you may enter multiple times with one ketucari*. This is for those who want only one or two ketucari changed, or do not own more than one. After your initial entry that shows their new form, you can do more pieces depicting them for additional entries!! HOWEVER, these still counts towards your entry limit. Keep that in mind! You're only able to get up to five tickets for this event.

*If entering multiple times with one ketucari, they must either be the same race in each depiction, or you must be very clear in the descriptions which race their shift form is.
Prompts do not have to be "new" (as in posted after the event starts) however they cannot have been sumitted for previous years, use with Darhaskos's Talismans, or with Small Flip Coins.


Art Prompt

Darhaskos has played a trick on you! Your ketucari has been transformed into one of Velukaelo's races. Draw your ketucari as one of the following. (Your choice!)
Bullet; White Human
Bullet; White Akadri
Bullet; White Jordskar
Bullet; White Hibridi
Bullet; White Heldyr
Bullet; White Lucedarian
(Information about these races can be found at the bottom of THIS page)
NEW: As of 2021, you may instead transform your ketucari into one of Verukaelo's fauna (or any earth animal)!

Bullet; White You may make a reference, a simple standing sketch, a full illustration, or anything in between! All are acceptable.
Bullet; White Must be full body. 70% of the body must be visible. (For those of you who hate drawing hands!)
Bullet; White Must be colored. Does not have to have shading.
Bullet; White While humanoid shift forms don't need to resemble the ketucari, please remember that animal forms Do.
Bullet; White Yes, you are allowed to include an outfit! Darhaskos isn't that cruel.
Bullet; White Nudity allowed. Please censor The Bits and apply the correct DA filter. Please be mature about this and do not include anything that would be considered erotic, thank you.

Submit your entries HERE

Bullet; White 300 words minimum per Ketucari.

Bullet; White You can draw/write for your own Ketucari, or for others. Please get permission before designing for other players. The five Ketucari transformation limit only applies to your own Ketucari, you may design for as many people as you desire, as long as they do not go over their FIVE limit.
Bullet; White You are allowed to do more than one art/lit piece. Do as many as you wish, but keep the above limit in mind.

If a Ketucari with this new skill is transferred to a different player, they will keep the skill, and the new owner will be able to redesign their new form.

Rewards

Bullet; White You will be able to draw your ketucari in this new form when participating in all future group activities! They will be able to tap into their magic to shapeshift into this new form at will. This is entirely optional, but can be considered canon!
Bullet; White You will also be entered into an RNG giveaway. Two members will win herbal brews (strong or normal,) and one lucky member will win two starter slots of their choice! The more entries you do, the more tickets you receive. Five tickets max. Raffle tickets go to the owner of the ketucari being transformed.

The winner of the mystery ketucari is Anarchisme! Congratulations! This ketucari also comes with a shift form!

COLOUR CARNIVALE

Posted 2 months ago :: Last edited 2 months ago by IIIXKitsuneXIII

[Deviant Art Journal Version]
“COME ONE, COME ALL!”

As you enter under the archway, you see an ash toa standing above the crowd on what appears to be a giant podium, bellowing over the general noise and anticipation.

“Welcome to the Colour Carnivale!!”

His voice booms over the din. There’s various tents and kiosks set up around what had been a park. If it remains such after the festival is over… well you’ll have to wait to find out.

The ash toa laughs above you, posing dramatically, fanning his feathers out, stretching dramatically.

“We’ve been waiting So Long to meet you all, and we hope you’ve anticipated it as much as we have.”

He leaps backwards suddenly, flipping in mid air to land on another structure--and turns blue--his now stone pelt gleaming in the chilly autumn sun.

“After all… we have much to share with you all…”



WELCOME to the Colour Carnivale!

From now until May 31st 2021 at 11:59PM PST, you will be able to take part in a series of small events for the chance to win exclusive prizes!
Event “week” rollovers are at 11:59PM PST on Sundays, so each event “week” starts on Monday.

The main event is the Carnival itself!

 

Rows upon rows of tents, kiosks, vendors and games fill the previously green space. It looks like someone set off a paint bomb, vibrant colors fill the air and assail the senses. Delicious food smells waft from several of the vendors. Nearly all the races of Velukaelo are here, crowding around the park's pathways. Cheery music can be heard from every which way, folksy tunes that spur listeners to dance. There's events, little plays, and all sorts of merriment all around. Several humans and heldyr dance around with silk banners, akadri beat their hooves against stone, a jordskar plays a drum near the center of the Carnival.

At the far end, you see fair rides. Ferris Wheels, fun houses, armatherium riding! There's even a petting zoo!

There's several drinking and eating contests, various strength testing competitions, and the space has been put together so it's comfortable for ketucari and humanoids alike to explore and partake in.

: Your ketucari is feeling lucky, before them lies a wheel and a young mysterious woman dressed in a long black hooded cloak, her mismatched eyes sparkle with mirth. “Hello, hello!! I hear you feel lucky today, perhaps so lucky you feel you may even be able to cheat death? Well, we’ll just see about that.” She laughs at what must be an inside joke before smiling at you once more. “This here is a special ring toss, if you can land a ring upon a bottle you will win a very special prize.” She smiles at your eager questions. “What prize?

I’ve all these lovely inks and dies, and I’ve been dying to get creative!” She beams. “You would?! Awesome!!”

No no not from me, ‘friad I’m rather spoken for, but you look like you could use a friend. A companion, you could say. Like my pal here.” he lowers his head again, and peeking out from his massive phoenix mane, there’s an… angel hare? “We’s gots all sorts’ve companions runnin’ round lookin’ for some friends.

IMPORT RAFFLE (And Orphanage Flood)!

Nyserr guides you into a (large) tavern that appears to have once been a barn. There, a number of yearlings are hanging around and enjoying themselves.

“Our pack’s resources are starting to get thin and it’s time for the young ones to disperse. Hang around, enjoy yourself. Ha! Maybe you’ll impress one of the kiddos enough that they want to join Your pack when they leave here!”

Orphanage Flood

What this means for you, is that a large number of special kids with the genes have entered the Orphanage!
What does this mean? Well obviously Newbies still get first dibs for their first ketucari, and anyone with a Foundling Amulet can swoop in too, however, as this is a special event; If any of the Colour Carnivale Yearlings remain in the Orphanage after May 31st 11:59 PM PST, they are available for any* user to claim regardless of the number of ketucari that user has at that point. There is a one per person limit however, so no swooping to nab all of the remaining designs.
*Anyone who wins a ketucari from the import raffle is barred from the free-for-all.

 

Import Raffle

Synamome 2603Accusatrix 2604Menetas 2605

Ghaitia 2606Ah'legeth'drn 2607Aine 2608

Auriantaca 2609Lightning Catcher 2610Engelorums 2611

Whenever you first put in an event prompt, you will (optionally) be given a ticket for a raffle design made by Anarchisme or IIIXKitsuneXIII !
You can only get one ticket (unless you have no ketucari, then you may get up to Two tickets), and at the end of the event the tickets will be rolled and if you are one of the winners you will be asked to send in a numbered list of your preferences.
There are 9 designs to be won, and one has a special secret!
A player may win one more than one raffle design if all other entrants have won one.

These special imports may not be redesigned except to add genes (if applicable), nor killed off.
If efforts are not made to get KT-2607  breedable and bred within 3 months, a Starter will be made with the same lineage skill.

The Wanderer Slot Raffle Season 2

Posted 4 months ago :: Last edited 2 months ago by IIIXKitsuneXIII

The Wanderers

[DA Journal Version]

    A pack of young adult ketucari has recently been spotted roaming the continents, seeking to explore, learn, and socialize wherever they go. Calling themselves the Wanderers, their aim to experience all walks of life may cause their paths to cross with your very own ketucari! 

Current Wanderers

 


 

Monthly Slot Raffle

 

Every month, the group will be raffling off one slot to each of the above ketucari!

Bullet; White There are no restrictions on the usage of these slots.

Bullet; White Each slot also comes with a "built in" Sundisk of Nyssa, so that you may breed them with a male or female ketucari. They also do not require a litter guard.

Bullet; White You may enter once per ketucari, but you may only win one Wanderer slot total for the month.

Bullet; White Wanderers may be bred together if you happen to collect more than one slot over the course of a few months.
 
 

How to Enter

Bullet; White Simply create a piece that meets our minimum Group Submission Requirements showing one of your ketucari interacting with the Wanderer who's slot you would like to win! Collaborations are allowed, but in order to count for all involved parties, each must have a ketucari present in the piece.

Bullet; White Only one Wanderer may be included per piece (ie, you cannot depict all six in one piece and use it as an entry for all of them). However, if collaborating pieces, more than one Wanderer may be included at a rate of One Per Person. However each player may only use one piece to enter for one Wanderer.
-i.e. Players 1, 2 and 3 collab on a piece with Furaha, Starseeker, and Aime. Player 1 can use the piece to enter for Aime, Furaha, or Starseeker, but not all three. Player 2 can do the same, as well as Player 3.
 
Bullet; White Remember that until they're raffled off, Wanderers are group owned. R rated entries and entries that are found to be disrespectful to either the Wanderer or any real life person, collective group of people, or culture, can be refused and rejected. They're allowed to be portrayed as creepy, or as villains if you like, but they Must be portrayed with respect, if only for the sake of the future owners.


Going forward, we will be rejecting entries that we feel cross the line into disrespecting the character.
This mostly applies to literature, as it's harder to have blatant disrespect in visual mediums. However, as a bit of a rubric for the sorts of things that might ping as disrespectful:

-Non-spoken lines making fun of the character (such as calling them "gross")
-high number of "in character" or spoken lines making fun of the character
-calling them "it" in a way that deprives the character of personhood
-entries that feel like they were written from a place of Disliking the character (we understand this is subjective, and other factors will be looked at)
-entries using the character as a mouthpiece for any sorts of views that deny other characters (or any people, groups of people, or cultures) personhood and basic dignity

 
Bullet; White There will be up to 6 total winners, labelled 1-6. Winners will be asked to list the Wanderers they want in order of preference based on which number they have and who they put in entries for (you cannot put in a Nimbus entry and win Furaha, for example, but if you only entered for Nimbus you get priority on Nimbus).
-i.e. if you are the only person to put in an entry on both Goya and Oeti, you may choose which slot you would prefer to get, instead of receiving Goya by default.

Bullet; White You may include multiple entries in one comment.

Bullet; White Comment your entry here:

 


 

- CURRENTLY CLOSED -

Yearly Import Raffle
- CURRENTLY CLOSED -

 

Each year, the Wanderers will retire from their journey and seek a permanent residence as new pack members take their place. That means they could even end up with you!


Before we get started we need to establish a few things, however. As the Wanderers are not just fancy imports but characters you all have been developing through the year, we want to make the ownership rules clear.


Bullet; White Wanderers may not be redesigned. Tokens may be added if applicable, and accessories, Elemental Blessings, and new backgrounds can be added, but the actual character cannot be redesigned.

Bullet; White Wanderers may Not be resold for USD.

Bullet; White No Deceasing the import. If you don't want them, gift/trade them to someone else or give them back to the group. Imports returned to the group will not be re-raffled without your approval/

Bullet; White The New Owner may Not change their Wanderer's Attunement without use of the Attunement Shift item.

Bullet; White The New Owner will need to complete their Wanderer's Breeding Eligibility. Their Breeding Comment will be "locked" before they are transferred to their new owner. Slots written by the Matriarchs-Haunt account will not count against the Wanderer's used or total Slots.

Bullet; White The new Owner must be aware that their Wanderer will not keep their built in Guardian or Sun Disk.

Bullet; White If a Wanderer is somehow Unclaimed it will remain group-owned as a starter.

Bullet; White The New Owner must be aware that their Wanderer will maintain their "Starter" status and be added to lineages as needed.

With that established, here is how

 


How to Enter


Bullet; White As with the Slot Raffle, you must create a piece that meets our minimum Group Submission Requirements showing one of your ketucari interacting with the Wanderer who's slot you would like to win! THESE PIECES MAY BE COMMISSIONED. Commissioned entries may be used by both Commissioner and Commissionee as long as each has a ket present in the piece. Collaborations are allowed, but in order to count for all involved parties, each must have a ketucari present in the piece.

Bullet; White UNLIKE with the Slots, you may include up to 3 Wanderers in an entry and it will count for all of them.

Bullet; White There will be up to 6 total winners, labelled 1-6. Winners will be asked to list the Wanderers they want in order of preference based on which number they have and who they put in entries for (you cannot put in a Haze entry and win Free, for example, but if you only entered for Haze you get priority on Haze).

Bullet; White Comment your entry here: - CURRENTLY CLOSED -

Current Wanderers are due to be adopted out 3/1/2022

Admin Applications Open!

Posted 3 months ago :: Last edited 3 months ago by Matriarchs-Haunt
Interested in having a more hands-on role in the group's development? Here's your chance!

Admin applications are always open! We keep track of applications here so that we can bring on new team members as the need arises. You are welcome to drop an application here any time, but please be aware that we have long down periods in between new admin rounds, so you may not receive a response immediately. As a courtesy, if you find you no longer have time to volunteer to the group, please hide your comment so that we know not to contact you. Thank you!

We'd like to bring some more team members on board in order to help fine tune our features, keep things running, and offer up fresh ideas! There's a few specific positions we're looking to fill, but you are not required to stick to the position you're applying for. Admins are free to offer their thoughts and help in any part of the group.

What's in it for me?

Admin positions are volunteer positions. However, we do have an "admin reward system" to work toward in-game items and custom ketucari as well as being able to sell custom rounds. However, unfair advantages such as increased breeding odds are off the table. If you are new to the admin experience, this will be a valuable learning opportunity that you could potentially apply to your own groups! Admins also have guaranteed off-time if desired, which can be found here: Staff and Holidays

Requirements

We have a few requirements for admins that apply to any position.

• You must have Discord chat so that we can all communicate and brainstorm. You can download it here! https://discordapp.com/

• We don't have an age requirement so long as you have a mature, reasonable attitude. Disagreements may happen, but we expect admins to be able to handle them with level heads and no hard feelings.

• Experience with games and how the systems work. We're not looking for gaming gurus or math wizards, but at least a basic idea of how run-of-the-mill game features (such as battles and crafting) work is a huge plus when it comes to admin selection.

Application

If you're interested in joining the team, look over the positions below to see what you'd like to apply for. Then reply to this journal with this form filled out:

Position(s) of Interest: (you may opt to fill more than one position if you think you have time)

Discord Name/ID#:

Time Zone:

Have you adminned/are you currently adminning for another ARPG group?

Tell us about yourself! (how long have you been in the group, how much time do you think you can offer the group, anything else that may pertain to being an admin!)

 
Available Positions

Currently looking to fill positions for admins who will be cross-trained in several parts of the group!

New Markings!

Posted 4 months ago :: Last edited 4 months ago by IIIXKitsuneXIII

Hey everyone! Little update here.

As you probably know we recently released some new genes and a handful of new horns!
Please introduce our new markings:
Monarch, Display, Aura, Jovian, Karpati, Colorize, and Intensify!
Their guides can be found in the Design Guide: https://www.deviantart.com/ketucari/journal/Design-Guides-569918077

And our new horns!
Buffulo, Slicked, Forked, Kabuto, Pigtails, and Papillon!
As well as secondary versions of Crown, Short, Ram, and Jacob's!
The horns will be added to the horn psd ASAP!

 

Similarly, some of you may have noticed there are two new gene interactions!

-Sugar Pangare (which can be found in the Pangare, Fading, and Mottling guides)
-Woodgrain (which can be found in the Brindle and Marbling guides).

 

We will be steadily updating design guides as time goes by.

Matchmaking 2020

Animated Pink Heart Divider by Gasara

Welcome to our February Matchmaking Event! In recognition of Valentines day, we will be doing randomly paired litters with your ketucari, which will give each of you a surprise cub! You will have from February 1 - February 14 to submit your ketucari to the breeding pool. The event will close after two weeks and admins will use RNG to pair the ketucari and roll your litters! The litters will be rolled within the next two days after. The final day to submit a ketucari for this event is February 14th at 11:59 PM EST

Let the pairing begin!


How to Participate

IF you don't have anyone to ship your ketucari with or don't see your ketucari as the romantic kind we have a few starter pairs you can doodle instead!
 
 
Then include a link to one of your ketucari to be used in the event! It does not have to be one of the ketucari depicted in your work.
 
Your ketucari will be randomly paired with another member's entered ketucari and you will both receive a surprise litter with a set of identical twins, one for each of the parent ketucari's owners. After your litter is posted, you are free to do what you want with the cubs like any other litter.

Group Fundraiser 2020!

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 1 year ago by Matriarchs-Haunt

Hello, everyone! A while back, we mentioned doing a fundraiser sale for the group’s site. Now that fundraiser is here! 

It’s been a long time since we’ve done an official group sale and some things have changed since then. Be sure to read carefully to see what’s different, particularly concerning semi-customs!

With this sale, we are hoping to cover the yearly running cost for the group’s site ($253 per year). If we manage to make an extra $195 after that, we can prepay 3 years of the site’s storage requirement! Let’s see what we can make happen!

SIDE NOTE: Be aware that replies confirming purchases may be slightly delayed, as the admin in charge of the sale will be at work for the majority of it (RIP). Please allow 24-48 hours for confirmation.

 


End Date

The end date of this sale will be August 5th at 11:59 PM PST.

Payment

  • Payment is through PayPal only.
  • All prices are in USD.
  • E-Checks are not accepted.
  • The threads for each type of purchase will be linked in their appropriate category below!

Starter Slots

  • These are full litter slots. If you snag a breedable pair, you're more than welcome to breed them together or to use your slot with a player-owned ketu!

CLICK FOR 7 USD TIER

CLICK FOR 15 USD TIER

COMMENT HERE TO PURCHASE A STARTER SLOT

 


Roulette Litters - 15 USD Each

 

  • “Roulette litter” means that the sire and dam are randomly chosen out of all available starters. Specific starters cannot be requested, as this defeats the purpose of the randomness.
  • Each litter will contain 2-4 cubs.
  • An admin will randomly roll which sire and which dam will be used for your litter, then roll the resulting cubs. This is done purely by RNG, which will also be determining the litter size. The parents, as well as the litter itself, will be posted to Breeding Requests and you will be notified once it's up! After that, what you decide to do with the cubs is up to you! They are yours to keep, sell, trade, etc. 

COMMENT HERE TO PURCHASE A ROULETTE LITTER

 


Wild Cubs - 8 USD Each

  • Wild cubs work exactly like a wild ketucari you’d find with the Charming skill! Their genes are randomly generated and they may or may not have unknown lineage depending on their rarity.

COMMENT HERE TO PURCHASE A WILD CUB

 


Gene Tokens - 10 USD for Common Genes, 15 USD for Uncommon Genes

  • Common and uncommon genes are available! You can find them here, at the bottom: Breeding

Guide to Using the Site

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 1 year ago by Matriarchs-Haunt

There's a great many things you can do on the site once your account is all set up! Here's a quick rundown of everything you need to know!

Under "Home" Tab


My Characters

This feature is currently non-functional. Your ketucari will still be tracked on dA until we integrate them into the site later on down the road.

Inventory

This link will show you all your items. If you click on an item, you will receive a pop-up window where you can do the following:

  • Click the checkbox next to the item and select a quantity, which will allow you to either:
    • Transfer the specified quantity to a user (it is recommended that you not transfer items to other users this way if you are expecting something in return. This is what trades are for, which we will cover later on!)
    • Delete the specified quantity (there is currently no reason to do this, but the option is there if you so desire!). Keep in mind that you may also sell unwanted items for gold via our dA site.
  • Click the image or name of the item to be taken to its Encyclopedia entry, which will tell you what the item does.
  • Loot boxes such as goodie bags and treasure chests may be opened from your inventory. Contents will be automatically added to your inventory, but if you want to see exactly what you received, you may do so by visiting "Item Logs" and "Currency Logs" on your profile.
     

Bank

This link will show you all of your currencies. You may complete a one-way transfer of currency from this page, as well. Again, it is recommended that you not transfer items to other users this way if you are expecting something in return.

Under "Activity" Tab


Prompt Submissions

This is where you can submit Quests, Skill Unlocks, and request Prize Packs if you haven't already redeemed them! For all of these things, click the "New Submission" button and then follow the directions below.

For Quests

  1. Type and/or select the name of the quest you wish to submit in the "Prompt" field.
  2. Paste the link to your image in the "Submission URL" field. **There is no need to include the old quest form in your submission.
  3. Link the ketucari/companion race character you are submitting the quest for in the "Comments" field.
  4. PLEASE NOTE: You must create a separate submission for each character in the image.
  5. You may ignore the "Rewards" and "Characters" sections.
  6. Hit submit! Rewards are automatically placed in your inventory by the site itself once an admin approves your submission. The quest will also be logged on your ketucari's dA import like normal.

For Skill Unlocks

  1. Type and/or select the name of the skill you wish to submit in the "Prompt" field.
  2. Paste the link to your image in the "Submission URL" field. **There is no need to include the old skill form in your submission.
  3. Link the ketucari you are submitting the skill for in the "Comments" field.
  4. PLEASE NOTE: You must create a separate submission for each character in the image.
  5. You may ignore the "Rewards" and "Characters" sections.
  6. Hit submit! Rewards are automatically placed in your inventory by the site itself once an admin approves your submission. The skill will also be logged on your ketucari's dA import like normal.

For Adventures

  1. Type and/or select "Adventure"  in the "Prompt" field.
  2. Paste the link to your image in the "Submission URL" field. **Please include the adventure form for the ketucari in question in the artist's description of your dA submission.
  3. PLEASE NOTE: You must create a separate submission for each character in the image.
  4. You may ignore the "Rewards" and "Characters" sections.
  5. Hit submit! Rewards are automatically placed in your inventory by an admin. The site is capable of rolling most adventure rewards itself, but some must be rolled manually by an admin. The adventure will also be logged on your ketucari's dA import like normal, but will only list out rewards that were not automatically rolled by the site. To see which rewards were automatically granted by the site, view the notification in your inbox after the submission is processed.

For Crafting

  1. Type and/or select "Crafting Request" in the "Prompt" field.
  2. In the URL field, type anything you wish. Even a single period will do! This field just needs to have something in it for it to allow you to submit it.
  3. Under the Add-Ons section, right next to "Your Inventory", hit "Show". 
  4. Select all items relevant to your crafting request. 
  5. Hit submit! 

For Prize Packs (Newbie Packs, Site Welcome Packs, etc.)

  1. In the prompt field, type and/or select "Site Welcome Pack" or "Newbie Pack - (desired profession here)". If, in the future, there is another prize pack available, you would type that instead.
  2. In the URL field, type anything you wish. Even a single period will do! This field just needs to have something in it for it to allow you to submit it. You may ignore all the other fields.
  3. Hit submit! Rewards are automatically placed in your inventory by the site itself once an admin approves your request.
  4. PLEASE NOTE: You may only ever request one Site Welcome Pack and one of the three Newbie Packs if you haven't already claimed one via dA. Requests for multiple packs will be rejected.

Claims

This feature is currently non-functional. We shall find a use for it at a later date!

Design approval

This feature is currently non-functional.

Character transfers

This feature is currently non-functional.

Trades

This allows you to conduct two-way trades with other users! This part of the site is pretty straightforward. 

For items, be sure to click the checkbox next to the item you wish to trade and specify the amount.

For currency, click "Add Currency" and select which and how much of the currency you wish to send.

Once your trade request has been sent, you will need to confirm your half of the trade. Once your trade partner has responded with and confirmed their half of the trade, you will both need to hit "Confirm Trade" at the bottom of the trade window to finalize it.

Under "Browse" Tab


Users

You can see a list of all other users here and view each other's inventories. This is useful if you're wanting to set up a trade! Eventually, you will be able to see each other's ketucari here as well.

Encyclopedia

This is a compilation of every item, prompt, and currency currently on the site. Eventually, it will also host all physical traits, builds, and genes related to ketucari!

World Lore

This is currently a work in progress and will eventually host all of the World Lore information currently found on our dA!

Zones

This is currently a work in progress and will eventually host all of the Zone information currently found on our dA!

Prompts

In addition to the Encyclopedia, you can also find names and descriptions (where applicable) of all the "prompts" on the site. This includes all quests and skill unlocks as well as current prize packs.

Shops

Here, you can find the Marketplace, Laurel Shop, and Legacy Store! You may purchase items by clicking on them and hitting "Purchase"! These are automatically placed in your inventory.
