The Veluchasm Festival!

Runs August 1, 2023 - 11:59 PM August 31, 2023 (Pacific Time)

 

We have drinks, streamers, sparklers, and aliens, no matter which world you’re celebrating on! The denizens of Velukaelo and those of the Chasm-Connected worlds have been aware of each other for years, and our celebration is back and better than ever!

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!

Something else new has cropped up again - with further experiments to the breeding safety machine, Ketucari and B-NOMALIES have been able to hybridize into what passes as a bipedal companion on Velukaelo and a subtype of B-NOMALY in the Chasm! KETU-NOMALIES stand mostly bipedally, and have a few K-NOM specific traits such as Godkiller Face and Godkiller Hands due to their heritage!

You will need an account on both Chasmho.me and Ketucari.com to participate in this event!
 
 

Species Information: Ketixi

Other Feather Types: Bald | Fantail | Frizzle | Harpy | Jacobin | Lucerne | Nicobar | Phoenix | Silkie

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.

Species Information: KETU-NOMALY

A hybrid of Ketucari and B-NOMALY, KETU-NOMALIES are classed as a subtype of B-NOMALY in the Chasm-Connected worlds, and as a bipedal companion in Velukaelo. Standing at around 3 feet tall (unless altered by mutations such as Giant, Dragon Body Type, or Always Anthro), these hybrids have B-NOMALY bodies and mutations, while bearing Ketucari-like faces (albeit with a second mouth covered in a beak like a B-NOMALY) and Ketucari-like hands, as well as modified B-NOMALY tails that appear closer to typical Ketucari tails.

Regardless of heritage, their Ketucari traits always appear similarly to standard Ketucari. They have access to all B-NOMALY mutations including Fogholder.

Despite their interspecies heritage, K-NOMs can breed, but only with other B-NOMALIES.

When filling out a form to create a KETU-NOMALY companion, please include both the Companion Race form and the B-NOMALY traits used.

Ketixi Breeding

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 2 of the main events and the 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, such as links to proofs for additional breedings.]

Ketixi Semicustoms

Would you rather have something definite than a random breeding? Having trouble picking out a good pair? Have we got an option for you. You can trade in one of your breedings for a semicustom! The semi will come with 4 Common Markings, 2 Uncommon Markings, and 2 Mutations by default, and you can add on items to increase that amount.

Combination Mutations count as rare genes, but the 2 mutations can be used to make a combination mutation if desired.

To increase the default further, you can draw a colored headshot gift of someone else's Ketucari.com or Chasmho.me character (any species as long as they have an import!) for a Rare gene OR Feather type. To get BOTH a Rare gene AND Feather type, you can upgrade that gift art to a colored fullbody! Make sure the other person's character is marked as open for gift art, or ask first! Gifting art to starters and NPCs does not count for this.

This trade can only be done twice per Veluchasm event.
One can optionally be a Cloning Vat style semi-custom (with the Cloning Vat item included and not needing to be used), with details HERE.

To trade for a Semicustom, go to THIS THREAD with this information!

Breeding proof: [If it was your original breeding, just state as such]

Other information:
[Such as gift art or details for Cloning Vat! Make sure to also send your gift art manually, Lorekeeper doesn't ping in comments]

Design Station

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 or IIIXKitsuneXIII as designer if desired!

Designs may take a bit longer than last year's average time due to outstanding obligations. Sorry! Life stuff, yknow

Slot Gifting

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 (or give permission for anyone at all to use the slot), with this form! The Ketucari and Rixixi discords are good places to advertise your Ketu/Ixi’s breedable services, so why not sign up?

Please specify if you want your slot to be available for Cloning Vat semicustoms. Cloning Vat slots cannot be signed to Anyone, they have to be to a specific user.

As these do not take from your Ketucari or Rixixi's slot count, slots for this should be gifted, not sold - they should generally be free. Putting them up for pay what you want offers is allowed as long as free is an option. There can be an option to pay as long as it is not a requirement! Thank you!

Main Event 1

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, Rixixi, or B-NOMALY 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.

You can commission art pieces for this if you want to!

Post your pieces on THIS THREAD, and list your Ketucari.com and Chasmho.me usernames!

Rewards:

  • +1 Ketixi Breeding
  • 50x Gold and 50x Summer Pops
  • (CHOOSE ONE) Primal Crown Primary Horn Token OR Cheek Frill Tertiary Horn Token OR Colorpitch Token OR Gemcrafted Shard - Colorpitch OR Anarchic Fogshard Token

 

Main Event 2

Exploring other worlds is exciting! One of the most interesting parts is all the new creatures you might meet. While traveling along, see if you have an encounter with something. Make sure to approach from a safe distance, and maybe you’ll have a pleasant experience!

Depict your own Ketucari, Rixixi, or B-NOMALY meeting a different world’s fauna! Entries should meet Ketucari’s minimum art requirements. If you need to find some fauna to choose from, explore Ketucari’s Zone Pages or Chasmhome’s Bestiary (note that sapients are listed in the Chasmhome bestiary as well -this prompt is for nonsapients OR companions, regardless of sapience status)!

You can commission art pieces for this if you want to!

Post your pieces on THIS THREAD, and list your Ketucari.com and Chasmho.me usernames as well as your Roothorne color choice!

Rewards:

  • +1 Ketixi Breeding
  • 1x Roothorne of Your Choice, sent to both your Chasmhome and Ketucari accounts Note: The Chasmhome version of the Roothorne only comes in one color, but can be reskinned.

Main Event 3

Finally, the KETU-NOMALY one! Various B-NOMALIES and Ketucari are curious about the breeding safety machine, wondering what it can make, the more casual among them wondering who to borrow to try for something interesting. Why don't you give them some ideas?

Design a K-NOM! Make sure you're using B-NOMALY traits (both B-Class and ANARCHIE allowed) for the physical features, and using the mandatory ones like Godkiller Face, Godkiller Hands, Long Tail, and Feather Duster! You have no restriction on how many Anarchic traits you can use, and Fogholder is allowed. Go wild. Fullbody with color or 300 words required.
You do not have to actually keep this design as a character, but if you want to, the option is available! Just take it to the link in Companion Races, use both the provided companion form and list all of the B-NOMALY traits used!

You can commission art pieces for this if you want to!

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.

KETU-NOMALIES can breed, but only with B-NOMALIES. They can be obtained in the Veluchasm event or through regular Companion-obtaining means, but cannot be obtained through Chasmhome MYOs. Godkiller traits for B-NOMALIES are only obtainable through these methods or through passing them down in breeding, they are not available in MYOs, trait swaps, and otherwise. KETU-NOMALIES will not have a lineage due to not being bred, except for certain raffle KETU-NOMALIES, this is just as a bit of a fun fact about where they came from.

Ketixi and KETU-NOMALIES 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 Ketucari.com and uses Ketucari items/quests/prompts. Rolls of Ketixi and KETU-NOMALIES 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 a K-NOM's trait is changed on Chasmhome, the image will be changed on Ketucari to reflect that. 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.

However, to keep things simple, KETU-NOMALIES only need to be submitted to the regular companion approvals with a modified form. Please include both the form found at Companion Races as well as all B-NOMALY traits used in the design so we can properly approve them.

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 HERE, on the second tab!

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!
