The Veluchasm Festival!
The Veluchasm Festival!
Runs August 1, 2022 - 11:59 PM August 31 2022 (Pacific Time)
Additional news at the bottom!
We have drinks, streamers, sparklers, and aliens, no matter which world you’re celebrating on! While the denizens of Velukaelo and those of the Chasm-Connected worlds have been aware of each other for years, we’re just now holding a celebration of our alliance! The reason for this is about to be revealed to the general public…
While Ketucari and Rixixi have had relationships every now and again, something new has started to spring up - a hybrid species referred to as the Ketixi! With the help of B-NOMALY mechanic Steele and expert engineer Kenkasei, the B-NOMALY’s breeding safety machine was altered with tarn water to safely join the genes of Rixixi and Ketucari while filtering out all sorts of possible issues. While it is possible to create a Ketixi naturally, it is rare, so we recommend use of the machine!
You will need an account on both and to participate in this event!
Ketixi: Smooth Import
A hybrid of Ketucari and Rixixi, Ketixi are bulky, muscular quadrupeds. Appearing similar to a combination of a Primal subspecies of Rixixi and a Ketucari no matter their actual Rixixi heritage, they primarily stand on four legs, but can walk in a bipedal stance for a short time, similar to ursines. Much like Rixixi, the Ketixi breathes through a vent system, visible on their sides. Much like Ketucari, they have a combination of fur and feathers covering their body, and their frill - both spiked and leathery as well as covered in feathers - is extremely expressive.
They are approximately the size of a Standard build Ketucari, standing 16-20 hands tall at the shoulder. Rixixi commonly measure their quadrupeds by length, and Ketixi are comparable to a large Primal, measuring 12-16 feet long from snout to tailtip on average.
Ketixi are all some form of intersex due to their Rixixi heritage. Due in part to their unusual heritage, they are all sterile.
Each player can enter ONE KETUCARI and ONE RIXIXI into a breeding to get one Ketixi geno per breeding! Ketucari and Rixixi must both be breedable (or a starter) for this event, but the breedings will not reduce their total slots!
To enter a starter, you must do at least a colored headshot or 100 words of that starter!
You have 1 Breeding by default! By entering the 2 main events and advertising bonus here, you may obtain up to 3 additional breedings!
Breedings will not be subject to Matriarch Kills or infertility penalties. Breedings will be subject to radiation sickness and inbreeding penalties if relevant. Breeding boosters may not be used. Rixixi are considered to have a disk automatically and can breed with any ketucari gender-wise. These are all considered full litters to you, but you can do what you please with the cubs afterwards.
Starters with lineage skills, Wanderers, and Mechanix may not be rented for this event.
Splits are disabled for this event, as breedings here will only result in one cub every time.
To enter, go HERE and comment with the following form:
Additional Information: [If you’re leasing a starter, the art goes here. Any other relevant information goes here.]
Intimidated by mutations? Lost? Busy? You can request a design from an admin HERE! - just link to your Ketixi geno!
You can specifically request Anarchisme, IIIXKitsuneXIII, or pawstepsinthesnow as designer if desired!
Have a breedable Ketucari or Rixixi that you want to give slots out for this event, but are unsure how to do that for this since slots aren’t used? Use THIS THREAD to give a slot to a specific player, with this form! The Ketucari and Rixixi discords are good places to advertise your Ketu/Ixi’s breedable services, so why not sign up?

There are all sorts of folks to meet at the Festival, and it’s held on all of the Chasm-Connected worlds as well as Velukaelo! While you’re here, why not introduce yourself to someone new? It could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship!
Depict your own Ketucari or Rixixi meeting a different world’s sapient species at the festival! Entries should meet Ketucari’s minimum art requirements - the character you’re meeting does not count as an extra character for wordcount purposes. For the other character, you can use your own characters, starters, or others’ Ixi/Ketucari, but make sure to have permission if drawing others’. It is allowed to draw non-Ixi/Ketucari sapients, such as Heldyr or Arakanth.
Post your pieces on THIS THREAD, and list your and usernames!

Technical Details
Ketixi are infertile and cannot breed. They can only be obtained in this event - they will not be able to be obtained via semicustoms, build changes, fogshards, or other methods.
Ketixi will be uploaded to both Chasmhome and Ketucari’s lorekeeper. These imports will have separate stats and some separate details, such as which companions will be uploaded to them, what items they can equip, and so on. The Chasmhome upload can be used on Chasmhome and uses items/quests/prompts native to that site, and Ketucari’s can be used on and uses Ketucari items/quests/prompts. Rolls of Ketixi can double-dip on both Ketucari and Chasmhome. Visual changes carry over to both uploads - if a Ketucari background is used, it will display on both Ketucari and Chasmhome. If an element is learned via Chasmhome and leveled up to the point that it can display, it can display on both Ketucari and Chasmhome. Similar things can double up - you can have an elemental blessing and display elemental radiation.
As a result of their double import, Ketixi need to be submitted to both design approvals. There is a Ketixi thread in Ketucari and Rixixi’s design approval - use two separate stash files, one with Ketucari’s import details and one with Rixixi’s, and drop these off in the individual threads.
Ketixi have a limited gene pool as well as several genes combined from both species. To exist on the Ketixi list, there must be a similar gene on both species. The full list is below!
You may use geno-editing items on your Ketixi, such as tokens, fogshard pieces, and statues. Tokens do not have a limit for Ketixi. If using a token/fogshard gene that was fused from two genes for Ketixi to make a new unique gene (eg. Sunny Ember), either the relevant fogshard or token will work. (a Sun Chrono fogshard, an Ember token). Supercharged Alchemy fogshards cannot trade the unique fused genes to a Rixixi, as they cannot be on regular Rixixi.
Mutations must be added by the designer, mutation bases will not be made for Ketixi. Mutations that exist in Rixixi and Ketucari can both pass on the same geno - double albinism is possible, for instance. Horns use Rixixi rules - they are fully customizable and can go anywhere on the head. You can use Ketucari bases for Ketixi horns if desired, but you will have to move them to make them fit.
If a Rixixi Fur Mutation passes, you will be asked what feather type you want it to be replaced by. This may change in the future if we run this event again and more Fur Mutations are released by then!
List of Ketixi Markings
Ketixi use Ketucari base coats, so as to allow modifiers and color genes! Rixixi parents are treated as if they have the ketucari Tint gene!
Counterparts are listed here - these are genes that will translate to the linked gene when breeding for Ketixi. This is so you can know every gene that works for Ketixi.
If a marking using Ketucari rules restricts to a limited list of markings, it uses this list for Ketixi: Cloak, Cowspots, Dapple, Dusky Points, Gecko, Hood, Labyrinthine Lacing, Labyrinthine Acid, Mojave Pastel, Mud, Raccoon, Pangare, Ripple, Sable, Spotting, Tabby, Tar Pit, Ticking, Washout, Windstorm, Xanadu

Labyrinthine Lacing increases the angular allowance of Lacing, can appear like the typical snake patterns and curved, dripping patterns typical of lacing but can also appear like geometric shapes and circuitry patterns. Labyrinthine Acid also increases the geometric shapes allowed in the marking, but is about as thick as the Acid marking typically is. Along with the snakes referenced in Acid's guide, you may also reference Arroyo and Mojave snakes for a more natural pattern. Mojave Pastel follows Melanistic Pastel's guide except for the aforementioned increase in geometric shape allowance!

Chasmhome-Specific News:
  • Pass rate percentages are now listed on the Genetics page due to being listed publicly here!
Ketucari-Specific News:
  • The Cloning Vat item has been added to Engineering! You can use this to change a semicustom into a “breeding” where you choose what genes come out, and more! Read about it here!
  • The Primal Crown primary horns and Cheek Frill tertiary horns have been added, based on Rixixi traits! These will be dispersed through this event, and in the usual 3 months, will be available through tokens and semicustoms!
  • Intersex has been added as an option for sex! Intersex Ketucari are infertile and cannot breed, however.
