Festival of the Day 2024 - Character Exchange!

Posted 1 month ago :: Last edited 2 weeks ago by ccbestiary

Aurelia’s Hatchery is running out of space for new eggs. Given that they all have crazy magic going on, she wants to find them their homes as soon as possible! The last thing she needs are two dozen eggs hatching early and destroying her Hatchery. She seeks the help of Riders the worlds over to find new homes for the eggs. Perhaps they will find their dragon here…or perhaps they can tell if someone else matches a dragon! This is a secret Santa event where players look for their dragon and find a dragon for others. Will you find who you’re looking for?

This year, Aurelia will be splitting the egg hunting into two batches. This is the signup for the second batch!

What is a Secret Santa?

For this Secret Santa, you make a custom dragon for someone. In return, you receive a custom dragon from someone else, along with a few other prizes! Who you get it from is a surprise, and the person you are assigned is also a surprise. This time around, you will not receive the same giftee or gifter (though your first round giftee might just end up being your gifter!). Please keep your assignments a secret until March 15th. What you get is random, so only participate if you are open to any possibilities.

Prizes:

  • One pre-designed secret santa dragon with a few custom traits to make you smile~ 
  • It will have a UR trait of choice.
  • It will have Large Adornments and matching Large Jewelry.
  • 1 Slot to an Emissary of your choosing
  • 1 Legendary Egg +10 SC -OR- 1 Ultra-rare Egg + 15 SC

Comment this Form to Join:

Desired Element (PICK ONE): (Any Element other than Day/Night/Stellar)
Chosen UR: Click here for a list and click here for trait details. You can pick any one UR that does NOT match your element. In example, if you picked Thunder as your desired element, you cannot pick Electric as your chosen UR.
Theme Request: (Example: Cute! Keep it short and simple, one sentence max, no run-ons)
Phobias & Problem Colors: (optional. list any phobias and/or colors to avoid. please do not be super specific with colors.)
Desired Emissary Slot: (click here for a list of emissaries or simply list an element)

Designer Rules:

  • One element should match their preferred element. You can pick any other element for their second or choose to make it purebred. Their second element also can't match the UR.
  • All physical traits should match their element(s).
  • No base Ultra-rare traits allowed other than the one they chose. All other traits are allowed.
  • Five Display Traits and Five Modifier traits must be chosen. If you’re in a design pinch, contact the group
  • Charged traits are allowed.
  • Do not include a background/the background should be transparent.
  • To finish your design, you must also have it approved. An exception to DM reviews is made for secret santas--reply to the person who assigned you the task in order to have it reviewed.
  • Designers may choose whether to show the items or not. The equipment buff is applied even if items don't show!

Schedule:

February 3rd — If you signed up, you will receive your Secret Santa target!
March 15th — Designs are due! No extensions.
March 16th — All prizes will be given out!

F.A.Q.

Do I need to enter on the Chronocompass site?

Yes, you will need a site account so that you can receive your prizes.

Can I include extra art/reference art for my secret santa?

Yes! Feel free to attach any art you like to your gift.

Can I include items with the design?

This time around, you may include Large Adornments and Large Jewelry (gemstone will match preferred element). Depicting these IS optional. Making a 'reference' version without the items is optional, since all traits should be apparent. If you do add a reference, make sure that all 'revealed' areas follow trait guidelines.

Can Items Hide Traits?

Items should not completely hide any traits on imports. As long as all traits are apparent, then the design is fine. Example: dragon has a hat on and thorned crest. The hat is on top of the crest, but there are two horn shaped things in the shape of the hat. You can tell there are single-pointed horns under there, so this hat does not hide the trait. If a mark only appears on the horns, then the mark is hidden, and the design won't pass.

What Happens if I Can’t Finish My Design?

The person who made your Secret Santa gift will keep the design they made for you, and you will not receive one. Your recipient will have their gift drawn by a moderator. You will not receive the 10 SC reward, legendary egg reward, or Emissary slot reward. If you are unable to finish your design and you know ahead of the deadline, let us know so we can reassign your task to someone else. Your dragon will be returned to the giftee, and they may choose to gift it to the community however they want (raffle, group contest, etc.) or keep the design.

I am having trouble designing. Can I have some help?

The mods are always happy to help! You can message cosmonstars on Discord or directly message the Chronocompass deviantart group. There is an exception to the no-mod-DMs rule for secret santas.

What Happens if I Don’t Like My Design?

If you would prefer to have the art in your style, you may redraw it. Slight changes in marking coverage/trait coverage are allowed (such as reducing the number of stripes, increasing the amount of Debris, adding items, etc.). However, you cannot change the design that is given to you beyond that, and you cannot use the geno for anything else. When the dragon unlocks magic on its import, the original design should still be apparent through the magical additions. What you get is random, so only participate if you are open to any possibilities.

Can I Sell, Trade, or Gift my Secret Santa egg?

No. If you choose not to use it, it will simply go unused.

Can I Sell, Trade, or Gift my dragon after it’s uploaded?

Once the dragon is uploaded, you may sell or transfer it like normal. There is a one month cooldown on ownership, so if you upload it on February 2nd, you can sell it on March 2nd.

Will the dragons have lineage?

Yes, they will have lineage assigned upon upload. This is usually one recent Emissary parent of matching element(s) exactly and two 1-20 ID grandparents matching the element(s).

Can I enter both Secret Santas?

Yes! Have at it :)

Festival Reminders & Updates

Posted 3 weeks ago :: Last edited 3 weeks ago by ccbestiary

Festival of the Day is winding down...but it seems the festivities are still going? Stay tuned for more, but in the meantime, this is an IMPORTANT REMINDER that there are still some events ongoing.

  • Festival Secret Santa closes within the next 24 hours. Enter it here! The first secret santa round yielded some absolutely amazing designs.
  • Festival of the Night continues until the end of February. While it's optional to do fully rendered pieces, any time you do one, you will receive a Chronocompass! As you can choose who goes on these Expeditions and have the chance to meet some interesting critters, I highly encourage folks to complete them! You also get the usual rewards of Silver Tickets and SC for new giftees. Apollo's shop remains open throughout the year!
  • Festival Advent also continues until the end of February. If you missed too many days, you can use Silver Tickets to zoom through them. There are some pretty amazing rewards this year!

In addition, here are some small updates before the big February one.

New Mods

There are three new design mods! Everyone please welcome Doom, Zincwolf, and MilkRat~

Crafting Restoration

8caedc0897f8dc187a5a14a1c7a44ed6.png

The crafting page has finally been updated to be legible! You can now easily find recipes and choose which buffs to use. It appears there is a new crafting buff as well? What on earth could that be...? Once someone unlocks one of these buffs, a fully detailed update will go out! The only exceptions to the crafting restoration are large and small jewelry, which would be better to add when they have their own art. You can use Claims to craft them in the meantime!

New Items

588-image.png

Two new familiars and a den item have been added! That gryphon hatchling seems to be a little special...

Hatchery Quest Adjustments

This is to make it more in line with group activities, provide more options for storytelling, and so on. Mostly the 'more options' part.

  • Only three prompts are needed instead of 4.
  • Wordcount now matches normal AR requirements.
  • You may complete the prompts in any order.
  • All users receive rare eggs from quests, whether or not it is their first quest.
  • You may select from 8 different prompts. 4 are new!

To view the new prompts, check out the Hatchery Quest! It is open to both new and old members and grants a free dragon egg once per month.

Design Updates

  • The hole in Zebra for the snout may be a gradient instead of solid; It is also optional now.
  • Ancient text regarding item count on the debris page has finally been removed.
  • Charged Flight Bars may now be asymmetrical.
  • Striped now has two visual examples of its Tabby form! Thank you Doom and Zaxarie!

tabbie.png

Egg Roller Update

The Eggrolls have been less spicy than usual. While it could be attributed to bad luck, it's much more likely that past rolls were good luck. Because everyone loves spicy eggrolls, the roller has been updated to be more consistent. Rare, Ultra-rare, and Legendary eggs all have an increased chance of traits. Ultra-rare eggs have +1 minimum trait and Legendaries have +2 minimum traits. As this is a straight-up buff, there will be no vote to decide whether or not to keep the old one. Eggs posted prior to February cannot be rerolled. Eggs posted on or after February 1st use the new roller.

As always, players are encouraged to check out the RNG themselves! There are now a few comments and color codes to help with this.

Miscellaneous Updates

  • The yearly threads have turned over. Please make sure to update your bookmarks!
  • Hatchery Achievements have been added to the game! You receive one for donating and one for having your donated design adopted and uploaded. Good luck all <3 !
  • An error in which the Intermediate String recipe with the Master Tailor buff required 1 fleece instead of 2 has been fixed.

Festival Advent 2023

Each prompt gives 1 Silver Ticket. Entries that meet normal activity requirements will get an additional Chronocompass. For each new person you gift, you will receive 3 SC. If you do not complete all of the prompts, you still keep the prizes earned along the way!

Click Here to Turn in Your Prompts

Fill out the following form in the notes area:

Prompt:

Terrain:

Buffs:

Attach ALL characters in the piece to this submission so we can check their gift art rules and give out EXP.

Rules:

  • All prompts must be turned in before the deadline (the last second of winter/February). The prompt turn-in is timed and will close automatically.
  • Link to characters used in the description/comments of the art page AND on the prompt turn-in.
  • You may use tickets from past events to gain prizes. Tickets may not be traded, sold, or gifted.
  • Only the artist(s) of an image will receive the prizes.
  • Gifts must follow gift art rules. You can check dragons with open gift art HERE and open gift writing HERE.
  • Gifts must be of dragons; While including Riders is always lovely, they do not count towards prizes.
  • Art images must have a full body dragon, coloring, a background. Although simple backgrounds and chibi characters are allowed, the art should not appear rushed. Remember that these are gifts!
  • They should all be in separate files--no art sheets.
  • The artist(s) turning it in may include Search Tools and Familiar buffs for their own characters.
  • Written entries have a minimum of 300 words, plus 300 for each extra dragon character (extra Riders will not add to the minimum). The focus of the story should be the giftee's dragon. They should all be in separate sections--no collection all on one page. If the writing is over 600w, then the artist(s) may include Search Tools and Familiar buffs for their own characters.
  • Collaborations are allowed, but requirements are doubled (two guest dragons for art, double word count for writing). Additionally, the gift must be for a player that is not an artist of a piece.
  • You may only get the reward for a prompt once.
  • You may choose to depict different Emissaries instead of giving gift art, if desired.
  • All dragon elements receive 2 Event EXP in each event entry. If a dragon in the gift has access to a calendar, they get an additional +2 EXP. If a dragon has access to a Party Parrot, they get an additional +2 EXP. These bonuses stack if multiple are present.
  • You can’t receive any sort of compensation for a gift. It should not be part of an art payment, trade, entry for a giftee’s contest, or anything similar.
  • Art from the main event cannot be used for other types of rolls in Chronocompass, such as Adventures or Affiliation Quests.

Festival Victory Lap

Once you've completed the rest of the event, you can continue earning tickets by giving out gift art. For each piece of gift art, you will receive 1 Silver Ticket. Victory Lap gift art may be combined with activities, as long as the giftee dragon does not claim an activity.

Victory Lap Rules:

  • Only one ticket per player per image can be earned. Unlike the main event, collaborators may receive a Silver Ticket for depicting their partner's dragon--just make sure that dragon is not participating in another AR!
  • The same dragon may not be used more than once to gain a Silver Ticket.
  • To prevent accidental double dipping, please put a description of who is doing what in any art pieces that will have tickets claimed.
  • Illustration rules follow the same requirements as the main event unless a character is turning in an activity. In that case, the art cannot be simplified and should be your normal style with a full background.
  • Written requirements follow the same rules as the main event unless a character is turning in an activity. In that case, it is the base activity word count +300 words.
  • Only dragons that have their prompt labelled as Event will get the event bonus or Party Parrot perks.

You may spend any extra tickets at Apollo's Wares or use them in the Festival Advent.

December News Update

Posted 2 months ago :: Last edited 2 months ago by ccbestiary

Group is open again! Lots of stuff has happened between now and the last news post! I'll sum up as much as I can without wasting time on intros.

Rock Collecting Carbuncles!

Find all 10 during Cavings.

563-image.png565-image.png559-image.png

 

More Fish!

They open from the same Transport Tanks you could find before. Best of luck, collectors!

578-image.png574-image.png572-image.png

 

DESIGN

Many new updates were made. It’s insane. Instead of listing all the changes (which would probably push this past the character limit), I’m going to link them. All of the changes were buffs and image examples.

collared3.pnggrungeaurora.png

 

marbled2.pngveined6.pngpanda7.png

Honestly, there are probably more changes than this, but these were the ones I took notes for.

QOL Features!

Affiliations and their corresponding pages received a bit of a glow-up. They are now organized neatly and all link to each other for easy browsing.

  • The bug where only logged in users could see the Activities menu is fixed. Among other things, that means the how to join page can be seen by people who want to join now.
  • After crafting a recipe, the Recipe has a hyperlink to the recipe info (bc why not?)
  • News page now shows 1000 comments per page (we can see ALL the SS participants at once :] ! )
  • Search now works on all masterlist pages, not just the main one. You can find it on the bottom of the listing pages.

…as well as several things under the hood that will help with processing crafter promotions quickly!

Open Events!

Advents, gift-giving, secret santas, and more! You can see all three by clicking ‘Chronocompass’ on the top left. It seems like another is due in the near future…

polar-bear.png

Upcoming Goodies!

587-image.png581-image.png569-image.png

  • 4 Crafting Familiars to be found in the world.
  • Rock Collection & Excavation Kit for Carbuncle catching to match with the Aquarium and Lure that fishing has.
  • 6 New Recipes TBA, plus 100+ recipes and loot tables for the new crafting familiars.
  • Crafting Page Rework (so it's not hell to find the right item/best recipes anymore!). Look at the 'forged metal' example for a preview of what ALL the recipes will look like.

Thank you to everyone who stuck it out through group close! I wish everyone a happy festival season~

Festival of the Night 2023 - Secret Santa!

Posted 3 months ago :: Last edited 3 months ago by ccbestiary

Aurelia’s Hatchery is running out of space for new eggs. Given that they all have crazy magic going on, she wants to find them their homes as soon as possible! The last thing she needs are two dozen eggs hatching early and destroying her Hatchery. She seeks the help of Riders the worlds over to find new homes for the eggs. Perhaps they will find their dragon here…or perhaps they can tell if someone else matches a dragon! This is a secret Santa event where players look for their dragon and find a dragon for others. Will you find who you’re looking for?

This year, Aurelia will be splitting the egg hunting into two batches. This is the signup for the first batch!

What is a Secret Santa?

For this Secret Santa, you make a custom dragon for someone. In return, you receive a custom dragon from someone else, along with a few other prizes! Who you get it from is a surprise, and the person you are assigned is also a surprise. Please keep your assignments a secret until January 16th. What you get is random, so only participate if you are open to any possibilities.

Prizes:

  • One pre-designed secret santa dragon with a few custom traits to make you smile~ 
  • It will have a mutation of choice. 
  • A random UR trait will be rolled publically on the Discord and applied to the critter as Recessive.
  • 1 Slot to an Emissary of your choosing
  • 1 Legendary Egg +10 SC -OR- 1 Ultra-rare Egg + 15 SC

Comment this Form to Join:

Desired Element (PICK ONE): (Any Element other than Day/Night)
Favorite Display Trait: (Rare or below, matches element)
Favorite Modifier Trait: (Rare or below, matches element)
Favorite Mutation: (Click here for a list. You can pick any one mutation. If Elemental Anomaly, say which Element.)
Theme Request: (Example: Cute! Keep it short and simple, one sentence max, no run-ons)
Phobias & Problem Colors: (optional. list any phobias and/or colors to avoid. please do not be super specific with colors.)
Desired Emissary Slot: (click here for a list of emissaries or simply list an element)

Designer Rules:

  • One element should match their preferred element. You can pick any other element for their second or choose to make it purebred.
  • All physical traits should match their element(s).
  • No base Ultra-rare traits allowed. All other marks are allowed.
  • Five Display Traits and Five Modifier traits must be chosen. If you’re in a design pinch, contact the group
  • Only the chosen mutation can be added.
  • Charged traits are allowed.
  • Do not include a background/the background should be transparent.
  • To finish your design, you must also have it approved. DM cosmonstars on Discord or ccbestiary on deviantart to have it reviewed.

Schedule:

December 10th — If you signed up, you will receive your Secret Santa target!
January 15th — Designs are due! No extensions.
January 16th — All prizes will be given out!

F.A.Q.

Do I need to enter on the Chronocompass site?

Yes, you will need a site account so that you can receive your prizes.

Can I include extra art/reference art for my secret santa?

Yes! Feel free to attach any art you like to your gift.

Can I include items with the design?

No, you can’t gift items, even if you use what’s in your inventory. There are several modifiers that can imitate paints and adornments (albeit with a few limitations). Debris is the easiest. Check them out!

What Happens if I Can’t Finish My Design?

The person who made your Secret Santa gift will keep the design they made for you, and you will not receive one. Your recipient will have their gift drawn by a moderator. You will not receive the 10 SC reward, legendary egg reward, or Emissary slot reward. If you are unable to finish your design and you know ahead of the deadline, let us know so we can reassign your task to someone else. Your dragon will be returned to the giftee, and they may choose to gift it to the community however they want (raffle, group contest, etc.) or keep the design.

I am having trouble designing. Can I have some help?

The mods are always happy to help! You can message cosmonstars on Discord or directly message the Chronocompass deviantart group. There is an exception to the no-mod-DMs rule for secret santas.

What Happens if I Don’t Like My Design?

If you would prefer to have the art in your style, you may redraw it. Slight changes in marking coverage/trait coverage are allowed (such as reducing the number of stripes, increasing the amount of Debris, adding items, etc.). However, you cannot change the design that is given to you beyond that, and you cannot use the geno for anything else. When the dragon unlocks magic on its import, the original design should still be apparent through the magical additions. What you get is random, so only participate if you are open to any possibilities.

Can I Use Phinae’s Remembrance on the recessive trait?

Yes! If you have to update the design, keep any changes minimal so that the original design is easy to see. You will need to acquire your own item to use it.

Can I Sell, Trade, or Gift my Secret Santa egg?

No. If you choose not to use it, it will simply go unused.

Can I Sell, Trade, or Gift my dragon after it’s uploaded?

Once the dragon is uploaded, you may sell or transfer it like normal. There is a one month cooldown on ownership, so if you upload it on February 2nd, you can sell it on March 2nd.

Will the dragons have lineage?

Yes, they will have lineage assigned upon upload. This is usually one recent Emissary parent of matching element(s) exactly and two 1-20 ID grandparents matching the element(s).

Can I enter both Secret Santas?

Yes! However, you cannot sign up for the second until you finish with your first Secret Santa design. Details about the second Secret Santa will be released at a later time. It will have different perks/design rules than this one.

Reverie Jamboree & Jamboree Letter Bees

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 11 months ago by ccbestiary

 

The Reverie Jamboree is back! Nevermind that the name is slightly different. As with last Reverie Jamboree, you can use your Riders without their dragons beside them, as long as it meets one of the following prompts and follows regular activity rules. Collaborations are also allowed. Each prompt gives an AR roll of your choice that drops 4 items, no matter the dragon level, job, or prestige involved. Click here to turn in your event pieces. Pieces are due the last second of May 31st.

  1. Gathering flowers, making bouquets, and witnessing the flowers of the world spring to life in the final frost is a tradition for the ages. In the south, these flowers come early, making the activity especially popular. Show your characters enjoying some blooms!
  2. Romantic dates are a huge thing. This goes without saying. Whether you want to go to a shrine together, watch a meteor shower, share some fine dining, get married in a gathering, go to a ball, wander a library, or have your fortune read together, it's sure to match the spirit of the season.
  3. It's not all about romance. The relationships between friends can be more powerful than romantic attraction. Depict your character hanging out with their friends.
  4. Show your character seeking love consultation. This could be contacting a professional, offering something at the shrine of a love god, researching the topic, or anything in between.
  5. Crafting something special for your lover is far more important than fanciful things. Crafting love letters, poetry, illustrations, hand-made sweets, heartfelt trinkets, and the gifting of rare books are all romantic gestures at this time of year.
  6. Dreams at this time of year tend to depict the future--even for non-Oceans! While love is usually the focus of these dreams, dramatic events may also reveal themselves. Do they receive an omen, a blessing, or something completely nonsensical?

For completing your first prompt, you receive: x1 Lovebird, x1 Silver Ticket, x3 Semi-custom Coins.

Jamboree Letter Bees

You can also create a Love Letter this year. Depict your dragon courting one of the Emissaries to win a special prize. The higher your score, the better your prize! This part of the event can't be collaborated. Click here to turn in your event piece. Pieces are due the last second of May 31st. The dragon must have their Grand Courtship complete and belong to you. However, in the holiday spirit, same-sex pairs are allowed!

1-9 - Common egg, matching element(s) of emissary.
10-19 - Uncommon egg, matching element(s) of emissary. 1 random buff rolled
20-29 - Rare egg, matching element(s) of emissary. 2 random buffs rolled
30-39 - An egg with your dragon as Parent one and the Emissary as Parent two (magic is applied if possible). 3 random buffs rolled
40-50 - An egg with your dragon as Parent one and the Emissary as Parent two (magic is applied if possible). 4 random buffs rolled

Here are the potential buffs:

  • Random Mutation
  • Random Modifier
  • Random Display
  • Random Soulbound Familiar
  • Magic Boosted to tier 2
  • Magic Boosted to tier 4
  • Guaranteed Crossbreed*

 

 

So, how do you get a good score?

+1-20 - RNG roll (will be rolled on Discord)
+5 - Terrain Matches Emissary (Learn about Terrains here)
+5 - Compatible Elements (Learn about compatibility here)
+10 - Courtship Matches Emissary (Learn about Courtship Art here)
+10 - Exceptional Effort (Noticeably better than your usual art/writing)
+10 - Both art and writing included (each must meet activity requirements).

You may only do the Letter Bee prompt once, so think carefully about the pair you use!

*You may request guaranteed pure breed instead. If you do, keep in mind that the buff is still not guaranteed.

Account Confirmation & Site F.A.Q

Posted 2 years ago :: Last edited 1 year ago by ccbestiary

This page is for old players that joined prior to the making of Chronocompass.com , as well as new players who would love to pick up their first egg!

Do I NEED to join the site to gain access to my old dragons and transfer my genos?

Yes, you need to join. Any transferred genos on deviantART link to their new pages, so there should be no confusion on this! There is also a handy dandy document that shows what you have and where it is, all in one collective spreadsheet!

I just joined the site! What do I do?

Comment here to have your inventory, dragons, and genos transferred to you, along with any slots/non bankable proofs linked to you.  You can see everything you own from the old site by clicking here and navigating to your tab. Make sure your account is verified, or we won't be able to transfer your things to you. Players with over 100 genos are placed in a low-priority queue (they are worked on after the other queue is done!). Whether you are a new or old player, you will also receive one legendary egg! Please fill out this form:

Old Username: (make sure you are verified)
Legendary Egg Element One:
Legendary Egg Element Two:

What do I do once I have my things?
  1. Verify that all the information is correct on your characters and that you still have all your items/genos. Everything has been triple-checked, but there's always a chance mistakes slip through. Comment here if you find any mistakes NOT mentioned on the 'changes' section of your spreadsheet.
  2. Make sure to update your gift art rules, as everything was turned OFF so people could input any rules they want first. Please prioritize this, as the next event involves gift art and I really hope no one misses out!
  3. Feel free to edit the name and profile of ANY of your characters. You can even link to a character profile (such as a toyhou.se profile) that displays on their profile page.
  4. You may edit the designs of your dragons freely--no need for an import change! This is mainly to test the design system. There will be a 1 month advance notice before designs return to needing an import change.
My dragons are marked as 'non-sellable, non-transferrable, worth $0.' Help!

Don't worry, you can still sell and trade your dragons as before! Any character you own can be traded and sold for any amount (show this info to people if you'd like to reassure them!). Players ALWAYS determine the value of their own characters. However, due to the way attaching to Riders works, the system cannot handle automatic transfers for uploaded characters. They need to be manually detached to prevent errors. Because of this, they are automatically locked in the system. This is the same reason they don't automatically snap to deviantART accounts when accounts are verified/hooked up. If you would like to transfer/sell/trade dragons, you may do so by commenting at this link!

Festival of the Night 2022

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

Luna has returned from the Chronoscape, ready to give out their blessings once more. They might spare a blessing or two to someone who provides enough silver. For whatever reason, silver tickets appear after a show of dedication or generosity, and there’s plenty of that to share in the holiday season! To enter, draw gift art of someone else’s dragon with one of the following themes (no repeats). The Festival lasts until the end of January. Once you complete the event, scroll down to learn about the victory lap!

    1. Jingle All the Way
    2. Express Journey
    3. Home for the Holidays
    4. Woodland Friends
    5. Frozen
    6. Miracle
    7. Happiness and Cheer
    8. Grinch
    9. Past, Present, Future
    10. Nightmare Before Christmas

Each prompt gives 3 SC, 3 Silver Tickets, and a Small Blessing. If you do not complete them all, you still keep the prizes earned along the way! A Silver Ticket store will open once Luna has their sales in order. In addition to these prompts, there will be flash prompts on the Discord that give out various goodies. Keep an eye on the prompts channel if you would like to draw even more presents! 

Click Here to Turn in Your Prompts

Fill out the following form in the notes area:

Prompt:

Terrain:

Buffs:

Attach ALL characters in the piece to this submission so we can check their gift art rules and give out EXP.

Rules:

  • All prompts must be turned in before the deadline. The prompt turn-in is timed and will close automatically.
  • Link to characters used in the description and on the prompt turn-in.
  • You may use tickets from past events to gain prizes. Tickets may not be traded, sold, or gifted
  • Only the artist(s) of an image will receive the prizes.
  • Gifts must follow gift art rules. You can check dragons with open gift art HERE and open gift writing HERE.
  • Gifts must be of dragons; While including Riders is always good, they do not count towards prizes.
  • Art images must have a full body dragon, coloring, shading, and a background. All traits of the dragon must be clearly visible. Unlike other years, art must be fully rendered and not rushed. They should all be in separate files--no art sheets. The artist(s) turning it in may include Search Tools and Familiar buffs for their own characters.
  • Written entries have a minimum of 300 words, plus 300 for each extra dragon character (extra Riders will not add to the minimum). The focus of the story should be the giftee's dragon. They should all be in separate sections--no collection all on one page. If the writing is over 600w, then the artist(s) may include Search Tools and Familiar buffs for their own characters.
  • Collaborations are allowed, but requirements are doubled (two guest dragons for art, double word count for writing). Additionally, the gift must be for a player that is not an artist of a piece.
  • You may only get the reward for a prompt once. Additionally, each prompt must be a gift for a different person. You may choose to depict different Emissaries instead of giving gift art, if desired.
  • All dragon elements receive 2 Event EXP in each event entry. If a dragon in the gift has access to a calendar, they get an additional +2 EXP. If a dragon has access to a Party Parrot, they get an additional +2 EXP. These bonuses stack if multiple are present.
  • You can’t receive any sort of compensation for a gift. It should not be part of an art payment, trade, entry for a giftee’s contest, or anything similar.
  • Art from the main event cannot be used for other types of rolls in the game, such as Adventures or Affiliation Quests.

Festival Victory Lap

Once you've completed the rest of the event, you can continue earning tickets by giving out gift art. For each piece of gift art, you will receive 1 Silver Ticket. Victory Lap gift art may be combined with activities, as long as the giftee dragon does not claim an activity.

Victory Lap Rules:

  • Only one ticket per player per image can be earned. Unlike the main event, collaborators may receive a Silver Ticket for depicting their partner's dragon--just make sure that dragon is not participating in another AR!
  • The same dragon may not be used more than once to gain a Silver Ticket.
  • To prevent accidental double dipping, please put a description of who is doing what in any art pieces that will have tickets claimed.
  • Illustration rules follow the same requirements as the main event.
  • Written requirements follow the same rules as the main event unless a character is turning in an activity. In that case, it is the base activity word count +300 words.
  • Only dragons that have their prompt labelled as Event will get the event bonus or Party Parrot perks.

You may spend any extra tickets at Apollo's Wares or use them in the Festival Advent.
