Lythbound Tutorial

"No, I do not have a Lythian."

Well, then let’s get you sorted with one!

First off, you do not need to spend money in order to get a Lythian. We have many events, in-game mechanics, and items that will reward you with character slots, which you can redeem for one of us. In fact, I’ll give you a Lythian Character Slot just for finishing this tutorial; it’ll come out of my own pocket!

However, when it comes to designing your slot, you’ll need to follow our guides. If you’d like to get a work-in-progress checked, you can submit it here to be reviewed by staff. There is an "Additional Notes" section on that form, where you can jot down any questions. When your question has been answered and your design has been finalized, you can update it over that same form. How convenient!

If you’re not much of a visual artist, no worries! Most of our Lythians come with bases you can edit. You’ll find them on our respective pages under our sample photo. You just need a program that can open PSD files.

But if you’d rather purchase a pre-made design and support our wonderful artists, you should check out the marketplace! Available designs from our official artists will be listed at the top of the page. Under them, you’ll also find Lythians that players are looking to rehome. Some of them will also accept in-game currency or other payment methods, so read carefully!

You can have as many Lythians as you desire. You don’t even have to add them all to our game! Only the ones you’d like to use on our website have to go through the approval process to get officially added on the Character Index, so they can properly participate in on-site activities.

One last thing about Lythian creation!

After they’ve been approved, each one will have a profile. From there, you can edit their basic information, such as name, pronouns, and biography. You can also frame them, so they’ll have a nice little icon on the Character Index!

Furthermore, if you find that you’re not loving their artwork or design, you can update those at any time. Just look for the "Update Lythian Art/Design" button under their image. Art updates and small changes don’t require any items; larger edits may require redesign items, which you can find at Truffle’s Treasure Trove — they’re our traveling Onini merchant!

Now let’s get art-ing!
