Beast Trials Fall 23: Ulpukka!

Posted 8 months ago :: Last edited 6 months ago by Herboreal

 

ULPUKKA'S Corruption

[artwork by Erose]

Ambassador Juhla's ear twitches as he picks out a sound in the distance. He's standing on a boardwalk in Glimworm Gulch after sunset, the cool air carrying the scent of autumn decay. The evening noises that surround him are jovial voices in conversation, some laughing, glasses of libations being set on tables, silverware on plates. But he hears something odd out in the bog, and begins slowly trotting away from the village to investigate.

The sounds of his home fade into the distance as he approaches the strange sound's origin. Orbs of swamp gas, emitted by the mouths of Lantern Salamanders, hang in the air, lighting the way. The water is rippling in an unusual way for the typically still bog, until suddenly, a massive elkh-like creature bursts forth from a ring of lilypads, shrieking in a ghastly bugle.

 

Many of the creatures who've become corrupted in recent years have been followers of Aiti who are generally well-meaning and simply need some help. Ulpukka is more of an ambivalent creature; neither "good" nor "bad".  There's a local legend in Glimworm Gulch that a bep once drowned in the bog, having walked too far out into the bog on a cold night and becoming entangled in pondweeds. That bep returned as what is now known as a kelpie, with glassy, empty eyes, waterweeds tangled in her mane, overgrown hooves, and a ghostly bugle. It's said that Ulpukka is responsible for the creation of Lantern Salamanders; creatures who silently release orbs of swamp gas that light the night, keeping other elkh from wandering too far across the bog mats at night.



She's usually a frightening but harmless presence in the bogs, and very rarely encountered, but the mysterious corruption that continues to plague Silkkassa has reached Ulpukka's domain.

Juhla moves to run for help, but is quickly trapped in the thrall of the bugling creature and slowly begins walking toward the bog. His human friends, noticing he's been gone for some time now, begin to grow increasingly concerned as other elkh begin wandering slowly toward the bog, seemingly in a trance. Now wise to the more magical happenings in Silkkassa, humans of Glimworm Gulch set out to find an aitielkh to consult about this new disturbance, and before long, aitielkh from all over are gathering once again to quell and heal another creature. Join in this Beast Trial with your aitielkh to earn Beast Boxes with special prizes! As always, if the group collectively meets the goal, every participant will receive an extra Lv2 Beast Box at the end of the event and Ulpukkas uncorrupted artwork will be added to the figures page!

See WORLD > PROMPTS > LIMITED PROMPTS > BEAST TRIALS

 

 

Kelpie's Curse

Elkh who encounter Ulpukka may be subject to Kelpie's Curse: a trait which "curses" the elkh to live with a kelpie form which allows them to breathe and swim underwater. In its most extreme appearance, the form includes milky eyes that are missing an iris, glowing pupils, upper tusks, waterweeds in the mane and/or tail, and a greenish appearance overall (we use a 40% color layer with a subdued green).
This form has several options:
-A permanent kelpie appearance (strong curse)
-A semi-permanent kelpie apperance which only occurs when the bep touches water (weaker curse)
-A mixed kelpie appearance where the bep's base form includes an upper tusk (if not already present) and semi-milky eyes (weaker curse). They may still look further kelpie-like when they touch water.
You're free to apply this trait to any bep and decide which option fits your character. Some kelpie-cursed beps (or.. "belpies") may appear typical until they touch water, leading them to try to hide their condition. Others may embrace their new abilities!

You may submit an additional masterlist image of your elkh's kelpie form as an image update if you wish but it is not required when applying the kelpie's curse potion. This potion can be applied to any type of elkh or aitielkh; aitielkh have more control over the curse than regular elkh. In-canon this gives your elkh the ability to breathe and swim underwater.

BEAST Boxes

The reward for participating in this event is a beast box! The level of box you recieve for a prompt correlates directly to the magic your aitielkh used in said prompt. Ritual boxes are gacha boxes with a chance of winning any one of the items inside of them. Chances are listed below.

Beast boxes include beast tokens as well! The amount you get corresponds to the level of beast box (lv 1 gets 1 token and so forth). The beast token shop will open October 1st and remains open through October 31st; you will be able to use your tokens to purchase the prizes unique to this event.

Aiti rare trait potion (small) - 20% chance
Tender Shoot Bundle- 20% chance
Seaweed Wreath- 20% chance
Spectral Growth- 20% chance
Lantern Salamander- 13% chance
Kelpie's Curse- 6% chance

 

Tender Shoots- 30% chance
Spectral Growth- 30% chance
Lantern Salamander- 30% chance
Kelpie's Curse- 10% chance

 

Lantern Salamander- 50% chance
Spectral Growth- 25% chance
Kelpie's Curse- 25% chance

 

 

 

Recruitment Event

For October only, we're holding a recruitment event!

1 Fawn Roll Ticket
1 Rare Trait

The debris bunny is a wild creature from Rainsong Forest. Its greenish coloration helps it blend in with ground mosses.

Autumnfound 2023


art by Witchsy

The nights become crisp, the days shorter, and the leaves begin to change. Autumnfound is here and it's time to celebrate!

 

Acorns

Acorn currency returns for this year's autumnfound! This currency is valued 1:1 with gildes, and can be exchanged for gildes anytime, but it's primary use is in the special Autumnfound Shop, which is now open in the Events Shop!

AUtumnfound Scavenger Hunt

Our Autumnfound scavenger hunt is back and elkh from all over are handing out the items! Can you find all 10?
Start with this clue to begin your hunt: This feisty sonaitieklh shaped like a casa sono has recently begun their magic journey in Thaumaturgy.
The items are hiding in the elkh's profiles. Inquire in the discord server if you need help and a mod will DM you!
Remember to open your scavenger hunt items once you find them!

Here is the scavenger hunt page to keep track of your progress.

 

AUTUMNFOUND PROMPTS

Autumnfound Prompts will be available all season (September through November), but keep in mind that other events will start in October and November, so September may be the best time to focus on them!
Many are geared toward domestic Elkh, but Autumn Feast and Fall Colors can be entered with wild elkh (including aitielkh). Aitielkh can also participate in the costume contest (on their own terms- not in the village)! Prompts will be awarded acorns.

See WORLD > PROMPTS >Limited Prompts to find the Autumnfound prompts.

 

The Autumnfound shop

 

The Autumnfound Shop is now open! Find retired autumn accessories, exciting gacha boxes, companions, and other items for a lower cost during the event! These items are only available via earning acorn currency by participating in various Autumnfound events. Throughout the entire event, you'll be able to convert acorns to gildes at any time by sending in a claim and attach the amount of acorns you would like converted. You will be able to purchase acorns with gildes (using the shop) during the last week of the event (Nov 23-30). The Autumnfound Shop will close Dec 1st.

 

 

See WORLD >GILDE SHOPS >Events Shop to find the Autumnfound Shop.

 

NEW AUTUMN ACCESSORIES and Giftwraps

 

Check out the Elkh Shop for the newest seasonal bep accessories, available September through November!  And, as a reminder, accessories can change color as you like to compliment your elkh's look! The colorways provided in the shop are simply options :>


To find the Elkh Shop, go to WORLD > GILDE SHOPS > Elkh Shop

 

All Aboard!

We have some very exciting news! Silkkassa's very own railways have been finished! Your elkh can now travel much more quickly if they're willing to board specially made trains. Traincars are made for beps and humans both to feel comfortable.

Read about The Avis Regional!

 

Train Travel exploration prompts

To celebrate the new railways, we've created a new prompt. Your elkh can travel to various villages throughout the contenent to sightsee and collect stamps in their stampbook, as well as a special companion and accessory! The first of these prompts is for the star city of Silkkassa: Kei! Earn a fancy pigeon companion and a jewled key pendant by completing this prompt. These prompts are here to stay, but it's best to do them as they're released if you'd like to keep up and get more rewards! All Exploration Prompts earn gildes for the first month they are introduced; after that, you can earn the items by doing the prompt anytime, but no base gildes will be awarded (but you can still earn bonus gildes). New Exploration Prompts will be available sporadically in between other events!

These new village exploration prompts will also include beautiful new location art (by LordStarryFace) which is also added to the corresponding location page.

 

Meet the royal family!

Since we're exploring Kei, it's time to meet the Royal Family! Silkkassa elects its leaders, but in old tradition, they take the appearance of a ruler and live at the castle. We're delighted to share these beautiful designs created by Faios.

In addition to the human leaders, their bep companions have been fleshed out as well.  Meet Taneli and Mirjam!

Please read all about these characters here! Clicking on any of the royal family characters will take you to their Figures page.

Read about the Royal Family!

To find the Royal Family page, go to WORLD> LORE >Royal Family

Also introducing: Silkkassa's royal crest!

We hope you enjoy this new information about the world!

Storyline Focus Month! Habapi Storylines! More!

Posted 10 months ago :: Last edited 10 months ago by Nopalrabbit

Post Worlds-Collide: A changed world


With the portal sealed, lost young ones found, and corrupted friends healed, what's left is a world of beings who have been shaken by the strange happenings that connected Silkkassa and Lunerest. In the scramble to work together to save one another, species that would normally keep to themselves have made themselves known. Humans are aware of aitielkh and shroomkin now, and are thus far treating them with respect and caution. Of course, a few humans have long known that aitielkh are real- the magickers who live on the edges of society allied themselves with the magical bepotelkh counterparts long ago.

Shroomkin and Aitielkh continue to be wary of humans and their villages, but opportunities for friendships have opened up. Aitielkh on principle do not do jobs for humans and thus do not canonically earn gildes or get work permits, nor do they reside within villages. They may pick up accessories as gifts now, but they would not deign have their manes trimmed or braided by human hands. They continue to follow Aiti's path in the wilds, but with newfound possibilities of connections with humans. Shroomkin may feel less inclined to turn up their nose once they know and trust a human. They may appear in villages occasionally, but are unlikely to reside permanently as they will always be called back to the forest and their deep ties to the forest floor and mushrooms.

Habapi are more likely to enter and hang out in villages now, and may freely barter with humans. It's unlikely humans will be entering the jungle in any large numbers, especially due to the difficulty of the journey there, but it's possible. Habapi are unlikely to allow humans to reside in the jungle, and may continue employing tactics to scare them away.

As for Lunerest, some traces remain. Star Moles are here to stay, as are the traits and enchantments found during the chaos. And of course, ambassador Matka will continue to visit Silkkassa and consult with their buddy Noë, who is now healed, if not a bit anxious about what transpired. It seems that, even with the corruption beasts banished, the forces of corruption are still at play in this world as they were before the portal opened, so there may be more mysteries yet to unravel.

 

 

The event shop with Worlds Collide related items will be closing August 6th. Anyone with remaining Lunar gildes will be issued regular gildes as the currency vanishes with the closing of the portal to Lunerest!

 

Storyline focus event

 

In response to feedback, we've decided to introduce months that focus on Storyline prompts! During these months, you may earn bonus currency for completing Storyline prompts without worrying about missing out on any special events. We hope to have these temporary bonuses occasionally during months where other events aren't scheduled. Storyline prompts include: Village Stories, Wild Pact, Oasis Dreams, The Desert Trail, Followers of Aiti, Trail of Mushroms, and Jungle Delights.

When you submit your prompt, the bonus reward you get (in addition to standard currency) will be randomly generated.

50% chance: 3 Gildes
25% chance: 5 Gildes
20% chance: 7 Gildes
5% chance: 1 Crystal Gilde

 
Reminder: Recieve a 10CG award for completing any Storylines Path! This reward is available all year.

 

 

 

Habapi Storylines!

 

Habapi storylines are here! Explore your Habapi's character and surroundings by doing prompts and earning delicious food awards! Completing all 8 storylines will earn your character a Hapinto Box; an adorable little luchbox made from a leaf, filled to the brim with a Habapi's favorite jungle goodies- in addition to the 10CG completion award. The award cabinet can be found on your characters profile, and the Box item will be placed in their inventory. As with other storyline prompts, remember to attach your character to the prompt submission so we can issue awards directly to them!

See Blossom's award case & inventory for examples.

There's more in store for Habapi in the future! Thanks for your patience while we continue to expand their world and capabilities. We think it will be worth the wait!

 

 

 

New Habapi Traits

Habapi have some new base traits, and can now use the combination trait carving. See the Habapi visual trait index here.

 

Shroomkin Storylines

 

Shroomkin prompts have been expanded to become storylines, including their own factions. Characters now earn the 10CG bonus for completing storylines along with the badge trinkets that are collected in their award cabinet. These storylines apply to both Silkkassan and Miatian shroomkin.

The other existing shroomkin prompts are still in the general shroomkin prompt category.

Completion of all storyline prompts by a character awards them the Trail of Mushrooms badge sash!

 

Odds & Ends

  • A new featured character is on the front page!
  • There will be a Habapi staff design sale on August 4th.
  • This is the last month to purchase Summer accessories from the Elkh Shop! Autumnfound begins next month.
  • There's a new Advent Calendar.
  • Per request, a new All-Purpose Restricted Trait Potion item has been introduced, which is available only in the USD shop and can be used to add any restricted trait to a MYO design, regardless of what's available in the CG shop during its seasonal rotation.
  • Timbre/Herboreal remains on break due to ongoing health issues, but will be a bit more present in the discord again. Any commission openings will be announced in the chat; she is otherwise closed for new work.
  • New Patreon tiers are available for site-only rewards, and there are now two different tiers to choose from. If you join a Patreon tier and do not recieve your rewards within 24 hours, please DM herboreal on discord, as it's possible we didn't recognize your name/handle. You are welcome to DM her right away when you join if you'd like your rewards more quickly! Otherwise, rewards are typically delivered on the 1st of each month, though we try to wait until pledges are processed first. Discord boosts continue to get 1CG per boost per month. Both patreon and discord supporters get access to the Sponsor chat which includes game previews, input, and occasional sale previews, and NEW monthly sponsor chat raffles!

The corruption beast's scourge



As the battle continues, mages from Lunerest have been studying the effects of the corruption beasts on the affected aitielkh. The aitielkh attacked by the beasts have been left weak, unable to cast their magic and covered in mysterious dark markings. The mages have discovered that the corruption can be healed, although it can leave some lasting effects on the elkh if they are not treated in time or if the corruption has sunken too deep within.

The lunerest scholar Oberon has noted these effects. If the aiti is able to be healed in time, like ambassador Noe, their colors and magic return to normal. If the healing ritual is too late, some aiti do have lasting effects, most notably the corruption marking, that sheds mysterious stars and moons. Once healed, the Aiti are no longer in danger and are able to use their magic again; the marking, however, remains. Other effects have been noted too; some aitielkh's magic has turned dark when once bright, the magic is just the same but the appearance has changed. Some aiti have found the corruption has even effected their flower crowns, leaving their flowers wilted or dry.

(Note: These are optional effects that the corruption marking may have on your aitielkh.)

Oberon and the mages have informed the elkh, they must finish clearing out the corruption beasts! They are almost defeated, and once they have been banished, the healing process can begin!

Event prompt

As a reminder: The event prompt can be entered by any elkh, not just aitielkh, but please read carefully so you understand the event rules and rewards, as this event is replacing beast trials. You may even include other creatures like lunerestians, shroomkin, habapi, and humans this time around!

See WORLD >PROMPTS >Limited Prompts

Thank you everyone who has been fighting the corruption beasts so bravely! We are almost done fighting, but the event is not over yet! Next month the event continues with a new prompt, more raffles and more time to earn lunar gildes for our special prizes!

 

ODDS & ENDS

  • To adjust to the new hair styling rule, we have discontinued the trait Cropped Mane, as this style can now be achieved with a haircut. Beps who have been affected have had their masterlist entries altered and compensated with an uncommon trait if necessary.  The No Mane rare trait will remain in effect as it is technically a lack of long hair growth, and players using haircuts may not shave the whole mane to replicate this trait. 
  • As a reminder aitielkh/sonoaitielkh may not have any kind of haircut without thaumaturgy mastery.
  • Timbre is still on break. Commissions are closed; please do not ask for comms or trades. You can ask to be added to the pinglist anytime! Please only message Nopal or request a mod in the discord chat if you have any group questions!

Worlds Collide Event!

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

Worlds collide

In place of Summer Beast Trials, a special crossover event is taking place!
The world of Lunerest has collided with ours. There are many events taking place both here and over at Lunerest,
so please check them out!

 

 

It was a quiet night as Noë walked with Villiso and his gaggle of boarlets. They squealed and scrambled around their legs playfully as they walked. Villiso was dragging a giant leaf full of moonflowers to Aiti’s Pool for the ritual. The aitielkh around had all gathered to help Villiso’s boarlets gather these special flowers for tonight; Noë was looking forward to seeing what the ritual would bring. The group soon reached the pool and saw none other than Usnea waiting for them.

“Welcome.” Usnea’s quiet and warm voice greeted them as Usnea came out from the undergrowth. “I heard you’re looking to use the pool tonight, Villiso.”

“Hello, Usnea.” Noë greeted the shaggy aitielkh warmly with a touch of their nose to Usnea’s. They watched as Villiso began pouring the flowers into the pool.

“Yes, I had a strange vision.” Villiso mused as his boarlets watched from behind him, “Something of corruption, something of…moons.” he trailed off as the water had already begun shining. Noë’s eyes widened and they backed up to stand beside Usnea.

Villiso laid down by the pool and closed his eyes, focusing hard on remembering his vision. The water began to swell, getting brighter and brighter, the water taking on the soft pink colours of the petals. Noë and Usnea watched, their mouths agape as the water swirled into a towering whirlpool and began reflecting the stars of the sky.

“Wh-whoa…” Noë let out without even thinking.

“Look!” Usnea exclaimed, peering out from their overgrown mane at the sky. “The…moons?” they finished confusedly. Noë looked up to see that two additional moons had slowly begun to appear in the sky.

“Three moons? We have three moons?” Noë said in disbelief.

“Not that I knew of.” Usnea replied, way too nonchalantly. Noë shot them a dirty look before continuing to watch the starry whirlpool. Villiso had now opened his eyes, beams of light coming out of them.

“It’s almost done.” Villiso said with laboured breath as the whirlpool got bigger and bigger, faster and faster; until it stopped completely and crashed down, splashing everyone around the pool. Noë flinched at the splash and shook their pelt annoyedly. When they looked to the pool again, the moonflowers were gone and the water was normal again. The only thing that seemed to change was the sky, the three moons looming in the night sky mysteriously.

“Was…that it? We have three moons now?” Noë said in disbelief.

“I don’t think so, Noë.” Usnea said, shifting on their feet uncomfortably, “I feel something.”

“Me too.” Villiso replied, getting to his feet and looking up to the sky. Noë looked up to the three moons with him and after a few seconds a hole opened up in the sky between the moons.

“Oh!” Noë exclaimed, “A… hole? A black hole?” Noë said fearfully.

“I don’t think so, it feels…” Usnea began, but was quickly interrupted as black mist started pouring out. Villiso quickly started wrangling his boarlets, all of his hair standing on end.

“We need to get away!” he shouted, the urgency in his voice scared Noë as they continued to watch the black mist. “That mist, I recognize it!” Villiso continued, “It must be corru-” Villiso was cut off by a grating screech that shook everyone to their very core. Noë crouched down, pinning their ears to the back of their head in pain. A huge shadowy figure began to descend from the sky. It looked like some sort of huge, shadowy sea creature with giant fangs and a pointed tail.

“What is that thing?” Noë yelled over the noise.

“It doesn’t matter, let’s go!” Villiso started pushing Usnea away as Noë continued to stare. Noë’s hooves felt glued to the ground. They were frozen in terror. “RUN!” Villiso’s booming voice snapped Noë out of it and they turned to run.

Noë raced through the forest, their heart pounding in their ears as they heard frenzied hoofbeats all around. The entire forest’s inhabitants were running from that thing. They heard the screech again and stumbled on a rock, falling painfully to their knees.

“Help!” Noë screamed as the beast in the sky started hurtling down towards them. They were scrambling to get to their feet when they saw a giant black beam of mist heading towards them. Noë sprang to their feet and tried to dodge out of the way but the mist had hit them on one of their eyes. They bugled in pain as the searing mist scorched through their fur and hide. Breathing heavily, they scrambled behind a tree and began running again, not having time to worry about their wound. As they were running they heard a familiar, metallicy sing-songy voice.

“ᏁᎧᏋ, Ꭵ ᎦᎧᏬᏁᎴ ᎩᎧᏬ, ᏇᏂᎩ ᎥᏕ ᏖᏂᏋᏒᏋ Ꮧ ፈᎧᏒᏒᏬᎮᏖᎥᎧᏁ ᏰᏋᏗᏕᏖ ᎥᏁ ᏕᎥᏝᏦᏦᏗᏕᏕᏗ, ᎧᏂ ᎷᎩ ᎷᎧᎧᏁᏕ, ᎩᎧᏬᏒ ᎦᏗፈᏋ?” Noë screeched to a halt, looking around wildly. They recognized that voice and that jumbled mix of bepotelkh-tongue and lunerestian speech.

“Matka! Matka, you’re here!” the fluffy, flying creature came into view. Matka was the Lunerestian ambassador moxyn that Noë had come to know so well. “What are you doing here?” Noë said between gasps.

“Ꭵ ፈᏗᎷᏋ ᏰᏋፈᏗᏬᏕᏋ Ꭵ ᏂᏋᏗᏒᎴ-” Noë interrupted them,

“Slow down, Matka, I can’t understand you when you talk so fast!” Noë chided. Matka took a deep breath and landed in front of Noë.
“I came as soon as I could! I felt a familiar magic tonight… why are Lunerest’s moons showing up here?” Matka questioned, glancing to the sky where the portal had opened up. “Why are there corruption beasts? Your face…Noë…” Matka’s brows were furrowed.

“I don’t know! Well, I know some of it. Villiso had a vision that we needed to do a ritual, we gathered moonflowers and went to the Aiti pool. It summoned those moons at first but then… something else came out.” Matka’s fur began bristling and their expression was of pure fear.

“What!!! That is so incredibly reckless!!!” Matka hissed. “It seems there was corruption here that is now MUCH STRONGER because of that portal to Lunerest and I-” Matka was interrupted as a blast of corruption shot past the two of them. “We need to get somewhere safer!!! Follow me!” Matka took flight and began leading Noë away.

“Wait, I’ll just use my magic to-” Noë began to turn to face the beast, but was quickly grabbed by Matka’s magic by the antlers.


“NO!!!” Matka yanked Noë’s face towards them. “They EAT magic, you’ll only make them stronger! We have to GO!” Matka let go of Noë and began flying, signaling Noë to follow. Noë almost protested but pushed it down and began to gallop after Matka. The sounds of chaos and ruin filled the forest. Screams, hoofbeats, screeches, Noë was growing more and more distressed.

Soon the two came to a large, thick grove of trees and pushed their way in. Usnea was inside waiting for them.

“Noë, your face!” Usnea gasped upon seeing the two enter. They tried to run up to touch Noë’s wound but Matka pushed their way between them.

“Usnea, no! You’ll get corrupted too.” Matka held their paws up.

“Why do you guys keep talking about my face like that?” Noë said, distraught, “Is it that bad?”

“It is strange.” Usnea cocked their head as they observed the black patch over Noë’s eye. It was gently oozing black moon and star shapes off of it.

“I’m not really sure how corruption affects aitielkh.” Matka said, hovering near Noë’s effected eye and observing. “Usually for xyns it causes us to be leeched of our magic and enter a semi-feral state where we cannot control ourselves.”

“WHAT?” Noë cried, “I’m going to lose control of myself? No, no, no!” Noë reared up in distress.

“I’m not sure!” Matka cried, “All we can do is wait and try to keep you safe.” Matka looked worriedly at the two, “We should reach out to Lunerest’s queens and get help. I’m sure we can heal you.” Matka gently pet Noë’s mane to try to comfort them, “Usnea, what should we say?”

“Well,” Usnea laid down, Noë and Matka following suit. “I guess we should begin with, ‘we opened a portal’”. The three laid together to hurriedly craft a letter. Matka finished it up and held it in their magic.

“I have to go report to the queens with all of this information, you two have to start warning everyone and trying to get anyone magical to a hidden place. These beasts will eat all of your magic and only grow stronger.” The two aitielkh nodded, their lips pressed tightly together. “We’ll fix this.” Matka said and quickly hugged the two aitielkh before grabbing onto their warpstone and disappearing. Noë looked to Usnea and the two elkh got up and set out to find the others.

 

The world of lunerest

This event is a crossover with Lunerest. Lunerest is a world of almost perpetual night, where only brave xyns can dimension-hop (and thus some may indeed have visited Silkkassa!). But this world is dangerous as it contains corruption beasts which need to feed on magic to survive. You can read more about Lunerest species here!

 

 

Event prompt

The event prompt can be entered by any elkh, not just aitielkh, but please read carefully so you understand the event rules and rewards, as this event is replacing beast trials. You may even include other creatures like lunerestians, shroomkin, habapi, and humans this time around!

See WORLD >PROMPTS >Limited Prompts

 

 

Event traits & PRizes

Restricted event traits include:

Corruption markings: (Aiti only) dark markings that ooze dark stars and moons.
Trailing stars: (Aiti or Bep/Sono) A glowing star enchantment which trails behind the elkh.
Star rune: (Aiti or Bep/Sono) A glowing star enchantment which hovers quietly over the head of the elkh.
Cupie wings: (Aiti only) Feathered or bat wings which are tiny and float above the elkh.
Halo: (Aiti only) A shining, sparkling halo appears above the elkh's head or around the tail or legs.

 


Starmoles from Lunerest have appeared in Silkkassa and Miatias!
Dusky, Powder, and Pricklypear moles are available in the event shop for Lunar Gildes.

 

Another enchanted accessory appears! This magical ribbon from Lunerest has magical qualities. If an aitielkh wears it, they can control the ribbons and use them to interact with the world! The colors can change to match with the owner. On a non-magical elkh, it's just very pretty.

And a special elkh accessory has been made by lunerestians to celebrate their arrival in the bepoltekh world! The Lunar Halter features the iconic night sky motif of Lunerest.

Event Advent Calendar

Advent calendar returns this month with gilde or lunar gilde rewards daily. Check in every day this month to get a Matka plush bonus prize at the end!

Event MYO Moodboard Raffle

These moodboard MYOs will be raffled off on July 1st! You can pick up a ticket using gildes in the Event Shop! Each MYO must use the attached traits and should follow the palette fairly closely. After you buy your raffle ticket, be sure to open it in your inventory or you won't be entered into the raffle!
Each winner can only win once! So if the first raffle is rolled and person A wins, person A will not be rolled for any of the other raffles. If person B then wins the second raffle, they will not be rolled in the remaining raffles, etc. So please choose carefully! <3
You can check your entries anytime by going to ACTIVITY >Raffles

Summer seasonal Shop Rotation

The seasonal shop stock has rotated with some brand new accessories and giftwraps!

Three new summer giftwraps are available! Sunny skies, constellations, and rainbow celebration.

Changes to rolled fawn MYO and gilde bought myo RESALE RULES

Going forward, we're disallowing the resale of MYO rolled fawns or any MYO that was bought with in game currency (gIldes). As the group grows and changes, we sometimes feel the need to tweak rules, and this is one of those things we've been considering for awhile now. If you get official custom designs of your rolled fawns (not rebases) by Herboreal or Nopal, they may be resold. If you get a rebase by Herboreal of an adult MYO you may resell the design. If you buy a MYO slot with irl money, the character made with the slot may be resold.

Please note this change does not apply retroactively; any rolled fawn MYOs you own and have already had designed can continue to be resold freely. However, any designs that pass through the system starting June 1st 2023 will be marked as gift/trade only, regardless of how long the slot has existed.

 

ODDS & ENDS

  • The Featured Character is updated on the front page!
  • Keep your eyes open for additional events next month!
  • A Beast Trial guide has been added to the guides page.
  • Redesign potion and trait swap potion information has been updated to specify it's only to be used on previously approved designs (cannot be used on rolled fawns until they've been grown).
  • Timbre is taking another break! Commissions are closed; please do not ask for comms or trades. You can ask to be added to the pinglist anytime!

May is for the Birds!

Villoso's Ritual Realized

Thanks to the help of many elkh in protecting the boarlets as they sought out moonflowers, Villoso was able to move forward with his ritual, performed at the aiti pool. Something strange is happening! We'll have to wait for word from Villoso or other Followers of Aiti to find out what's going on.
The Beast Trial Shop is open for the month of May! (WORLD > GILDE SHOPS >Beast Trial Shop)
(Look forward to a special Beast Trial in June!)

Survey Results, Changes, & Future Plans

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

Survey Results

First, thank you for answering the survey! Let's look at the results, and we'll share our response in turn.

 

small_divider.png

Events

What Types of Events would you like to see more of?

The results of this poll were primarily in favor of (in order of importance):

  • General Art/Writing Prompts
  • Specific Scenario prompts (such as beast trials & explorations)
  • Character Development Prompts (hollygiving, #bep-games)

Response:

We do plan to do some more general prompts! And of course beast trials and explorations will continue. We're glad they're being enjoyed <3 We will also try to continue character development related prompts and games. Another exploration prompt is set to be released May 1st!

 

What Topics do you enjoy for events?

The results of this poll were primarily in favor of (in order of importance):

  • Lore/plot development for the world
  • In-world events and holidays
  • Developing individual character stories
  • Low plot "fun" events

Response:

We have some big worldbuilding events coming soon- one of which is already unfolding with the latest beast trial :3c We will try to think of some new holiday events as well. Longstanding prompts like storylines are meant for character development, but we will also consider ways in which events may contribute to this goal as well.

 

What prizes are you most excited to see in events?

The results of this poll were primarily in favor of (in order of importance):

  • New and/or Retired Traits
  • New and/or Retired Companions
  • New accessories
  • Character Upgrades
  • Premade Characters

Response:

We'll definitely keep this in mind going forward!

For specific retired items, there was mention of getting CG store items at events. This is already a feature, and the CG store is meant to be a way to get the items year-round. Many of these items are available in various gacha boxes during autumnfound, or in the birthday box, or via beast trials. Mimic may be the only one not available anywhere else right now but we'll keep that in mind. We're also working on introducing more ways to earn CG other than paying USD, but the currency was intended to be a "premium" currency so that will remain it's primary function for the sake of funding site development.

 

small_divider.png

The website

Was registration confusing to you at first?

The results were a resounding "no".

survey.pngWere any parts of submitting to prompts/gallery confusing to you at first?

The results were a resounding "yes, kind of".

Response:

We encourage use of the guides, especially the "getting started" guide, but those weren't necessarily readily available when the site first went up, so this makes sense! It would be nice if the Lorekeeper framework had a built-in way to streamline the prompt submission process, but as-is, it has to remain this way. It's possible that future versions of LK will make this process easier. We're always happy to help via the questions chat on discord, too. However, if you have suggestions for how to improve the way we communicate this information, please let us know!

 

survey.pngHow do you feel about the process of designing/submitting Characters?

The results were mostly that it's easy/well liked.

Response:

I'll address some specific issues raised:

  • One entry mentioned that it's not an enjoyable process. Without knowing any details, we're unsure if this means the mechanics of the submission or the process of the design being approved. Either way, if you need assistance, we encourage you to reach out! We do have a MYO submission guide in the Guides tab that may help as well, and if the issue is that designs get kicked back for edits, please review the Design Guide.
  • One entry mentioned that the Design Guide should mention that Subspecies are available for MYOs. We've edited the guide to make clear mention that these are available for MYO usage, and also links to the encylopedia for more information on the subspecies. There are also bases available for all subspecies.
  • One entry mentioned that bep rarity doesn't appear to change when trait change items are submitted with a MYO/design update. This is untintentional and a mistake on our part. Due the the Lorekeeper framework, this sometimes can't be changed until after the character is approved, so it's a matter of us noticing and remembering to do it. If you notice this has been missed (or if ANY of your characters rarity does not match the highest rarity trait they have), please submit a claim so it can be fixed. We've gone through and fixed a lot of the recent MYOs.

survey.pngIs there information you find difficult to access on-site?

The results were largely "no", but when they weren't, lore and location info seemed to be the tricky ones.

Response:

A lot of this is once again the general structure of Lorekeeper, but we hope that as you use the site, it becomes easier to navigate. We tried to place the Guides tab in a more obvious location so it's easier to get to; we will add the locations to the dropdown menu under "WORLD" soon to make those more accessible as well.
A LORE page has been added under "WORLD", but we need to finish filling it out.

 

survey.pngIs there information you believe to be missing from the site?

All answers were "no" except for one: "The magic trials are still on the weebly site"

Response:

This was a copypaste error when the guides were set up. The magic trials have been in the prompts for a long time and the copypaste error has been fixed.

 

survey.pngAre there features you'd like to see on our site?

Suggestions and our responses:

  • A way to link characters (like toyhouse)
    • We really want this too! This just isn't possible with the current LK framework. Perhaps version 2.0 will have a feature like this, or someone will create an extension for it in the future. We're keeping an eye out!
  • Being able to see all the traits in one picture
    • The visual trait index serves this purpose. Re-editing and uploading a single image with traits in it over and over was very tedious, so we hope the visual trait index is helpful- we've added it to the navigation under "RESOURCES" to make it easily accessible.
  • Access to information about events including past events
    • News posts are left up with information about past events. Unfortunately, if we leave old event prompts up, it creates confusion about what prompts are available to do at any given time. If you have further suggestions about how we can make this information accessible, please let us know! We could perhaps make a guide to events, listing calendar of events that occur throughout the year.

small_divider.png

Designs and Sales

We'll skip a lot of these as it's info mostly pertinent to designers, but some things warrented a response, so we'll list those here!

survey.pngHow do you feel about markings as traits? Etc.

Results and responses:

  • I like them (x9)
  • Specific marking options for aitielkh might be helpful
    • We'd suggest using regular elkh markings if that's the case. While it's not required, you can certainly choose to use them (they still should not be listed as traits on the ML, however)!
  • I prefer aiti for the markings freedom but MYOs are hard to get
    • We're making aiti MYO tickets easier to access and reducing the cost of various MYO and upgrade tickets in general.
  • Restrictive traits make it hard for newcomers to get into the game/for me to be creative
    • After discussion of potentially removing markings as traits, we have opted to keep them for the time being, but we're going to make an effort to provide more options and flexibility where possible. It's difficult because of the breeding system. If things become too flexible, traits don't mean anything anymore. We  have discussed breedings only applying to physical traits and colors, but largely the markings system is preferred by current players, so we're going to do our best to meet this request halfway as we know it can be frustrating!
  • Sonos and beps should share markings
    • We feel this keeps them separate and unique; however, you can easily combine traits by making your character a hybrid.

survey.pngsome color palettes you'd like to see more often in premade designs?

  • Darker palettes
  • Black and white
  • More unusual colors on beps/sonos
    • This is just canonically not possible which is why we don't do it ;w; we could utilize more dye, however.
  • Less black and gray
  • Purple, gold, white, pale
  • Yellow, brown
  • White, cream
  • Blues, greens
  • Brown, pink, gray, cream, mulberry, gold

small_divider.png

 

ImmINENT changes

We're changing up some traits to make more sense and offer more versatility!

MYO TICKETS & THEIR PRICES

  • Aiti MYO tickets were added to the General Shop
  • Prices reduced on elkh MYO tickets, aiti transformations, habapi MYO tickets, and shroomkin MYO tickets.
    USD shop MYO ticket prices reduced

Traits being retired:

  • Updo
  • Single Braids
  • Multiple Braids
  • Braided Tail

Players that have beps with these traits will automatically be provided with trait potions for each instance of this trait on beps they own. The potions may be kept and used, or may be resold from the players inventory for gildes. Braids and other hairstyles will be free-for-all now and can be changed at will. Sonoelkh with the UPDO hair style will have the trait changed to Windswept and will be awarded a rare trait potion to compensate.

These changes were discussed with members in the sponsor chat and ultimately decided upon by Nopal and Timbre; however, if you are strongly opposed, please let us know. For that reason, we're waiting a day to implement this change.

Traits becoming restricted:

  • Carved
  • Paint

These traits just did not make sense as heritable traits from  breedings, so their rarity is being upgraded to Restricted. You can now easily add these traits to your bep by buying a Carving Kit or a Paint Kit from the Elkh shop and applying them to your MYO or design update, just like Hair Dye!
The traits have had their rarity updated and characters with these traits have had their character rarity upgraded.

 

The removal of braids/updo as traits will happen on Friday April 7, at which time compensatory trait potions will also be sent out! These can be resold to the shop for gildes if desired.

 

New Traits:

Shaped Marking

  • Shaped Marking (rare)

This trait will allow for one marking on a bep or sono to be any shape of your choice (as long as it fits within the canon of this early 1900s-era fantasy world). You can have multiple shaped markings by purchasing multiple rare trait potions and applying them to the design. This does apply to the typically restricted stars and hearts. To be clear though, it would not look the same as there would only be ONE star per rare trait potion. Bep/sono color restrictions apply.

 

New Shop:

Meet Rami!

Rami (he/him) helps run a small shop dedicated to beautifying elkh! You can find dye, carving kits, and paint kits here.


See WORLD > GILDE SHOPS >Salon

 

Thank you!

Thank you again for participating in the survey! We're always going to work on making the game more enjoyable for you. Please do continue to offer suggestions, feedback, and comments whenever you like, using the questions-and-suggestions channel on our Discord.

March News!

A Little Break...

 

We've had several events back-to-back, so for the sake of the staff and users alike, we're taking a month off of any kind of events! There are still plenty of things to do if you wish though, so let's talk about some updates that might be of interest!
Please do note Herboreal is on hiatus. Please contact Nopal or other moderators for group assistance at this time.

 

STorylines Refresh

Storylines have been adjusted a bit for this month!

Keeping things OrDERLY

When we first launched the new site a year ago, Storylines prompts were all locked behind one another so that they were done in order as intended. However, leaving them locked kept the following prompts information hidden, so users couldn't plan out a story in advance. Our dev Wisp has helped us so the prompts can continue to be locked, but their information will still be visible before you unlock them by doing the prerequisite prompt!

Award Cabinet

Those of you who are longtime players may remember that we had charm racks, flower crowns, and a ceramic art piece to collect as a character completed storylines. Collecting these pieces and putting them on the charm rack was a bit of a pain for users. Now, your character will be given an award each time a Storyline prompt is completed, and that award will be veiwable from their profile! Once the character has completed their chosen Storyline, they will recieve the finished product as an item they keep in their inventory.

Visit the elkh's profile and select "AWARDS" at left (highlghted in black here)

 

Storyline awards as they appear in your elkh's award cabinet!

 

Once the storyline is completed, the finished collection of items will be placed in your elkh's inventory.
(your elkh's inventory is also viewable from their profile page)

 

Claiming past awards

If your elkh has already earned some or all of the storyline rewards, please submit a claim and attach the character(s). We will verify by looking at their rank points. If you have submitted the prompts on the website and are missing rank points, please send in a claim with your old prompts listed in the comments. If you have not submitted old storyline prompts yet from back in the DA group days, please submit them through the prompts themselves so you can unlock the next storyline. NOTE please tell us in the comments if you've already received the gildes for these old prompts.

See WORLD >PROMPTS >Village Stories/Wild Pact/Oasis Dreams/Desert Trail

 

Storylines Completion Rewards soon

Each storyline will have its own completion reward SOON! We have some ideas of what we'd like to award but we'd also like to hear from our players! Learn more at the end of the news post.

 

The exploration continues!


Art by Thy.

We thought the Matsana Exploration prompt was so much fun that we would keep it open indefinitely! You can visit the Matsana Jungle with your elkh anytime henceforth and earn a Mossy Chest with a selected random prize inside. Please note that the Stars of Aiti potion has been replaced with a habapi MYO ticket and the Jungle Leaves Potion removed! We won't be using mossy gildes anymore, and will instead directly deliver the chest when the prompt is awarded. Likewise, exploration points are no longer a part of the prompt.

See WORLD >PROMPTS >Exploration Prompts

 

New Shroomkin & habapi Prompts!

Thanks to mod Pandelirious, we have a few new Shroomkin prompts!  The new Shroomkin prompts will earn you a little wooden badge for your Shroomkin's award cabinet (they can wear the badge on their shawl if they like!) We hope to flesh out gameplay with shroomkin more in the future. 

Habapi prompts are coming soon! The mods are coming up with some fun general prompts, exploration prompts and storyline prompts for our tusky friends! We will release these in waves, the first wave should be up by the end of this week. We will edit this post to include more information when we are done.

-March 5th: First wave of general prompts have been added!

See WORLD > PROMPTS >Shroomkin Prompts
See WORLD > PROMPTS >Habapi Prompts

 

Spring '23 Elkh Shop!

New wrapping papers have been added to the shop!
As a reminder, new papers will be released throughout this year and will start repeating seasonally in Winter.

 

Designer Millo went a little overboard this season!
There are TWO sets of new spring accessories to choose from: Daffodil Clips + Cheery Robin Shawl or Fairy Ring Collar + Mushroom Clips.

See WORLD >GILDE SHOPS >Elkh Shop

MArch Goodie bags for sale

Only for March we have two goodie bags for sale in our Ko-fi shop!

Bep goodie bag contains: 20 gildes, 2 crystal gildes, a random retired companion and a random retired accessory.
Aiti goodie bag contains: 5 crystal gildes, 1 magic crystal and a random retired aiti companion (including our beast trial companions).

 

Piebald VIlla gift-to-enter raffle

An adorable new raffle design is up for March courtesy of our mod Thy!

See World > Prompts >Limited Prompts for details.

 

Bepotelkh spring 2023 survey

We would love to hear your feedback! We made an annonymous survey covering a variety of topics. It's officially been 1 year since we launched our site and we could not have done it without our wonderful players and mods. Help us get some ideas on things you'd like to see and where we can improve! And there is an extra raffle ticket at the end if you choose to participate. Thank you so much <3
Note: Please put the code word in the comment section of your claim! We will fix the instructions soon!
