New Markings!

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 1 year 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

Animated Pink Heart Divider by Gasara
Reply to the comment below with a link to a doodle, blurb (300 words) or collabed entry of one of your ketucari going on a date with another (If you use someone else's ketucari for the second, please check with them first!!), preparing alone for a date, or showing some other form of romantic love. 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 2 years ago :: Last edited 2 years 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

  • Feather types are not available as tokens.
  • Common and uncommon genes are available! You can find them here, at the bottom: Breeding 
  • Be sure to read the rules for applying tokens here: Obtaining and Applying Tokens

    • The base uncommon gene may be used to apply tint, smokey, or flaxen!

Guide to Using the Site

Posted 2 years ago :: Last edited 2 years 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.

Character masterlist

This feature is currently non-functional except for the presence of our evil overlord, Kaur.

Raffles

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

Under "World" Tab


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.
