The Winter Lights

Posted 5 months ago :: Last edited 4 months ago by IIIXKitsuneXIII

[THIS EVENT IS NOW CLOSED. WINNERS ANNOUNCED >HERE<]

 

A chill wind rolls across the plains of Messus, and three rynos stand before you.

The Winter Lights, they’re called. Three spiritual devotees--followers of Seijalka, Neve, and Tauratu who have left their homes on a pilgrimage to explore the world. For some reason, wherever the trio travels, the world seems Brighter, with the sun glinting off the snow more than it should, or the night sky igniting with colors.
The Winter Lights are looking for new homes. Will they find yours?

 

IMPORT RAFFLE

There are three imports being raffled off this year, and entry is simple! The characters found in these ketucari’s profiles are optional to keep.


Brynhild - Former devotee of Seijalka, believed to have been born from an Aurora. Has been maintaining a shrine to Seijalka on Aegrus for several years, but has passed the torch on to a new devotee and is off on a pilgrimage to explore the world.

 

Chorus - A former follower of Neve, the Goddess of Joy. They travelled with her until recently, due to the aura of joy and contentment that surrounded her. Chorus is enraptured by winter and the light displays of the season.

 

Solfrid - An orphan found and taken in by Tauratu and Seijalka who admires the Winter King to this day. Solfrid seeks to follow in Tauratu’s pawsteps and bring joy and goodwill to the people of Velukaelo who may otherwise be without during the holidays.


How to Enter:


Draw or Write about your ketucari (or a starter!) interacting with the ketucari you’re entering for.
The piece must meet minimum requirements for the number of ketucari portrayed (both at 50% visibility, or 600+words). These pieces can be rolled as Adventures, Tarns, or Skill Unlocks for the interacting ketucari, but Not for the raffle ketucari. As such, these may take place anywhere in Velukaelo!
These pieces may later be used by the raffle ketucari for bonding (with the original artist’s permission)!
Each piece only counts for One of the three Lights of Winter, though more than one can be portrayed. You may enter for more than one ketucari, but only win one.

 

Comment below with your piece and which ketucari you’re entering for.
New owners will be rolled Dec 31th, 12PM Pacific Time.
Admins may not enter for the geno they personally designed, but may enter for the other two.
Each ketucari comes with an unapplied Light Blessing for their new owners to design as they please. PSDs will be made available to the winners. This Light Blessing does not count against either of the two that a ketucari can learn, meaning Brynhild, Chorus, and Solfrid may have a possible total of Three Elemental Blessings if a nature scroll is applied to them.
Names should be kept as at least a nickname for the ketucari even if lore is not maintained.
These ketucari are not allowed to be redesigned or sold.

 

SLOT RAFFLE
In the northern-most reaches of Aegrus, deep in the heart of Kanibar, a strange ketucari has been seen. She glows with an ephemeral light and is happy to greet any strangers she may come across.
She carries the blessing of her adoptive father Seijalka. Her name is Firn and she’s eager to spend time with the mortals of the world.

Firn is the new starter for Winter’s Breath!
Beginning this year, Firn will be appearing in the Kanibar Snowfields every December to seek companionship from other ketucari.

 

You may only win one slot, which will come with the following restrictions.

-Firn slots may not be sold for real life currency, or traded outside of Ketucari
-If the Winner of the slot chooses to use the slot in a Split breeding, the Winner of the slot must get Pick of the Litter. This is to prevent more experienced players from taking advantage of newbies, which we have been seeing more of as of late.
-For these Year 2021 slots, breeding with a ketucari who has Tauratu KT-632 / Tauratu 631 on their visible lineage will count as Inbreeding.

 

Entry is simple:
-Comment [here] stating you wish to enter the raffle
-You may acquire +1 ticket by drawing or writing about [Firn]. Requirements are a colored sketch or 300 words. Include this in your initial comment or reply to your own original comment with the link.
-You may also acquire +1 ticket IF you joined the group in 2021 OR +2 if you joined in December 2021.
-You may also acquire +1 ticket for advertising the Event and the group in a Status, Journal, or Poll. Link for confirmation.

SITE ERROR: Character transfers bugged [RESOLVED]

Posted 6 months ago :: Last edited 6 months ago by IIIXKitsuneXIII

Earlier today we discovered an error in character transfers: that is to say that for some reason character transfers are showing up for people Not their intended recipient. We don't yet know what's causing this. However, if you have transferred a character in the last week and it went to the Wrong Person, please let us know ASAP so we can make a manual transfer to the Intended recipient.

We will update you all as Soon as possible about the cause of the error and when we get it fixed. We can confirm that if a transfer is intended for you you will get a notification.
We are so so sorry for the confusion this may have caused. We know at least one character that may have accidentally gone to an admin instead of the intended recipient, which will be remedied as soon as we confirm who the intended recipient of the character was.

UPDATE: THE ERROR HAS BEEN RESOLVED.
All affected characters should now be back in pending, or their transfers fixed so they're with their intended recipient.

Draginraptor has provided the following explanation for what happened:
- It should have only affected active transfers (i.e. transfers that were active before the site update, and new transfers that were made).
- There's a piece of code that updates the details of users involved in transfers whenever a page related to a user is visited (e.g. user profile). Unfortunately there was one specific section that was not updated to be in line with the recent update.
- This old code checked user aliases from the old system to update transfer users in case someone who was originally offsite joined while the transfer was still active. However, after the update, aliases from the old system were cleared after the new system was put in place, so the code would errorneously match NULL aliases from users to NULL aliases in the transfers.

Changes to Lineage Skills

Posted 6 months ago :: Last edited 6 months ago by pawstepsinthesnow
Hello, all. Sian/pawstepsinthesnow here.
 
From today forward, we're making several major changes to the mechanics of lineage skills.
 
To be fairly frank about the reasoning for this change: the way lineage skills have been recieved by the community are not in line with how we want them to function. While lineage skills are intended to be a fun thing for the community to share, they have been treated with a sense of exclusivity and ownership that has resulted in harassment and toxic behavior, particuarly aimed at the admin team.
 
Our perception of creating starters to share lineage skills was intended to be a lightening of responsibility: no longer would players have to struggle to get their ketucari breedable and ensure slots were circulated for people to be able to share in the lineage skill. 
 
However, it's become clear that people instead percieve the lineage skill as something exclusive only to them, and that any attempt to further distrubute it will be percieved as a loss of value, even an attack; and have lashed out at us as a result. While we recognize the pain, this behavior is not acceptable. This situation is corrosive to the health and growth of our community, and directly interfering with our ability to continute to administrate this group.
 
Therefore, although we recognize that this step will be recieved with mixed feelings, we think it is for the best for the future of the group.
 
So, how will things look going forward?
Future lineage skills may debut on a starter instead of a player-owned ketucari, and any lineage skill that debuts on a raffled ketucari will have a starter made for it and slots raffled six months later. This will grant the winner a period of exclusivity to distrubute slots before the lineage skill is given wider release. Additionally, we will be creating and releasing starters for the remaining lineage skills already in existence, so that all lineage skills are treated equally regardless of the owner of their founder or date of debut.
 
Additionally, there is now a quest live to add a lineage skill to any elder Ketucari-- check out Elder Isle for the details. (Thank you Unarla/Pav for the suggestion!) We're hoping that this futher tamps down on toxicity surrounding lineage skills, by allowing players to create their own. These skills will not be shared with starters, but we aren't restricting people from creating multiple mechanically-similar skills to compensate. Relatedly, we've revamped the requirements for descendants to learn their bloodline's lineage skills. The requirement has been lowered to Renowned instead of Elder, and the requirements standardized to match non-lineage skill unlocks.
 
Raffle-origin skills will still have a couple unique factors-- their effects may be a bit more unique, and we'll be writing and debuting exclusive quests that can only be undertaken by Ketucari who have learned raffle-origin lineage skills. (At the moment, only Winter's Breath has a quest, as it was written before the shift to skill unlocks, but we'll be filling in the others as time goes on.)
 
To extend a compensation to current holders of lineage-founders for these changes, we've created an item, the Mythic Simulator, that allows both the Elder requirement and the quest to be bypassed to create a lineage skill. These will be craftable as an Engineering legendary item in the future, but we are distributing one to every current owner of a lineage founder-- this will let you be among the first to create new lineage skills if you so choose. 
 
We're hoping that this combination of moves will reduce the sense of scarcity and elitism around lineage skills.
 
As a reminder, admins enforcing a ruling should not be taken as a personal attack, and it is not acceptable to respond to us doing so with hostility. We endeavor to work with players whenever possible, but that should not be taken as a license to harass us for decisions that you do not agree with. 
 
We're hoping to be able to bring you some more positive news later on, and want to sincerely thank everyone who has stuck with us through this time. <3

November Spotlight

Posted 6 months ago :: Last edited 6 months ago by Anarchisme

Across the land of Velukaelo, celebrities are common. Ketucari and two-leggers alike slip in and out of the spotlight as easily as breathing. 15 minutes of fame, a lifetime of satisfaction. One ketucari however, has made it clear that she is searching for the next big thing.

 

Will it be you?


How Spotlights work:

 

Spotlights are reserved for artists and writers who show improvement and effort in their works. Every month or so, admins will scour the art of Ketucari users for Tashtai, searching for an artist or art that catches their attention for improvement. Tashtai will then pick one out if the set and show it off for everyone to see, featuring several of their works!

We will also feature several Quality Roll pieces as well! These will be one piece per artist, but all are incredibly impressive.

Remember that this is judged against your own gallery and skill level. If you're a beginner, you will not be passed over for a quality roll because your art isn't of the same caliber as someone who has been drawing for 10+ years. This would be unfair and that is not our goal! However, we do require that the effort be noticeable as we do not want players abusing this feature. We will be considering things such as anatomy, background quality, and posing for art, and story flow and creativity for literature. We will be lenient with grammar and spelling for those for whom English is not their first language, so don't fret if that's the case!

Artworks featured in Spotlights will be awarded with a Quality Roll.

 

Quality Rolls

  Quality Rolls on Lorekeeper are somewhat different than their previous incarnations! All Quality Rolls - Spotlights and otherwise - will be granted a chest called Tashtai's Crate, stocked with many various goods from across Velukaelo!

Keep in mind, however, that as it takes time for players to improve, quality rolls are rare events and will typically be awarded once every six months, per artist at max.
 

Have a suggestion for a spotlight? Note MAtriarchs-Haunt with the player, a few of their pieces, and why you think they should be featured!


Current Spotlight

Tashtai seems to have found someone to her liking and she would like to share them with you! Tashtai, would you like to take the floor?

“Thank you. And thank all of you for coming to this spotlight gallery today. I believe I have found this week’s new celebrity. They have put a lot of effort into improving themselves and I’d like to give them a moment of fame.” The buff ketucari steps back and pulls a cord, lifting the curtains from a stunning work.

"IIIXKitsuneXIII has been consistently improving and creating beautiful work for a long while - you've probably seen xir works around! Xe has consistently made stunning works and experimented with different styles to produce amazing pieces. Kitsu also is a fantastic writer, and xir pieces tell amazing stories, whether through literature or visual art.

In their work we see improvement/interest in many areas:

Details: Whether writing or drawing, IIIXKitsuneXIII shows great attention to detail. Many visual pieces show exceptional backgrounds with just enough detail not to be distracting, but still be incredibly eye-catching. Lit pieces are incredibly descriptive about how the characters are feeling and the location they're in. Kitsu's pieces are always a treat for the eye and imagination.

Stylization: Many of IIIXKitsuneXIII's pieces are forays into various styles, and all of them are impressive! It's always attention-grabbing when Kitsu tries something new, and often comes out amazing. Some of the additional examples below show these various styles!

Color and lighting: IIIXKitsuneXIII displays wonderful use of color in xir pieces. Both ketucari and backgrounds are a treat to look at, and lighting is wonderful. Light reflects off of solid objects and ketucari beautifully, and texture is often visible in shading.

I have  decorated the gallery with a few others works done by IIIXKitsuneXIII. Make sure to check out their gallery as well! I am sure you will find a favorite just like I have!"

Literature: Shelter from the Storm

"The wind howled over the lake, crashing its waves against the shore, dispersing the titular mist that normally blanketed the normally ocean-blue waters. The trees snapped and cracked against each other, groaning, screaming protests into the oncoming storm. A massive ryno struggled against the wind, grateful that at least the rain had yet to reach the lake. He pushed through the shelter of a bush and towering fir, shuddering as the wind snatched his fur and yanked back on it. Not to mention the niggling pain between his shoulders… he needed to get to the shore, just get to the path where he… he could regroup there. His family and vassals-- they’d know where to look, certainly?"

 

Current Quality Roll Feature

The rest of the gallery features various artists' pieces on display, including:

Aftermath, by Chaccra
This is an amazing and dramatic piece - it tells so much in the composition and emotion, and the texture work is amazing!

A Royal Battle, by Noirmori
The limited palette work here is great! All of the kets look amazing in this purple sheen.

You can not have him! by JFJL
The limited use of color in this really makes it stand out, and the detail in this is amazing!

Park Cuddles, by pawstepsinthesnow
The stylization in this is lovely! The texture on the ketucari came out excellent, and the general aesthetic is wonderful.

We'll see you in December with the next feature! Thank you for making so much lovely art for us to enjoy!

Site Update! Comments and Exalted Levels!

Posted 6 months ago :: Last edited 6 months ago by IIIXKitsuneXIII

Hello Everyone! You may have noticed a brief period of downtime and been forcibly logged out of the site earlier today (November 5th, 2021)
We have done some updates to Lorekeeper!

At the first opportunity, please go into "Settings" on your account and add a birthday. This is for security purposes!

Included in these we now have the following!
-Comments on submissions, so that we can stop sending you back to corrections for broken links and other form errors!
-An Expanded bonding bar!

And with the expanded bonding bar we have Another update!

Exalted Leveling and Rewards

Exalted Levels are very similar to Bonding levels, and in fact are an expansion on the system! Exalted levels are unlocked when your ketucari reaches Bonding Level 10 and becomes an Elder. You cannot claim Exalted levels before that point.
Exalted levels will be expanded as time goes on and ketucari receive more and more art.
Increasing your Exalted bar level is simple: just use your ketucari in the group! For every five pieces related to group activities in which the ketucari is featured, the bond bar will fill in one bullet/level.
 
 
And with Exalted levels being live, so too is the Rare Token Claim for Bonding Level 10!
The Rare token claim Is Retroactive and we will be allowing a grace period to allow existing level 10 bonding ketucari to claim their tokens. We will be monitoring these claims for abuse and if necessary may limit those claims to One per player per month.
Rare Gene Tokens Do NOT include Feather types.
 
Please look at the bonding journal for more information: https://www.deviantart.com/ketucari/journal/Bonding-569915575

Zone Expansion + Feature Update!

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 10 months 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

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 1 year ago by Noirmori

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.
