Wiki, Site Updates, Email 2FA, and New Items

Lythbound Wiki

The Lythbound Wiki is now available and seeking editors! If you’ve ever been curious about a specific item, species, pet, or companion, the Lythbound wiki is now here to answer all your Lythbound lore needs. It might look a little empty right now, which is why we’re seeking some hardcore Lyth-heads to help us add and edit pages!

Site Updates

- 2FA is now available via email! Simply head over to your account settings and click the tab that reads “Two-Factor Auth” to get started. If you already have 2FA enabled via smart device, you may add email 2FA in addition to smart device 2FA and both will be applied.

- Selecting a Lythian for ARPG submissions or attaching inventory items is now easier! You may now search for Lythians by their set name, along with their masterlist ID number.

- Companion profiles have received a revamp! Click on one of your companions' profiles and you’ll find we’ve updated their pages to better match playable Lythians. That includes brand new pronoun and gift writing fields you can apply to your Lythians’ little pals!
 - Additionally, the companion transfer cooldown has been lowered to 1 week (previously 2 weeks).

New Items

Some players may have noticed certain MYO tickets for both companions and playable species may look a bit different! These new gem tickets, unlike regular MYO tickets, can be traded or gifted to other players and are obtainable via Thistle’s Gem shop. Please note that, like normal MYO tickets, the items themselves can only be traded/gifted and cannot be sold for real currency!


The Igroven Lythian frame is now available via general (non-familiarity) Igroven realm quests! Rumor has it this frame is pretty rare though, so it may take a few tries to get it…

Additionally, the bookmarks bar can be hidden completely via your account settings page.

Site Updates

Site Updates

- The Submit ARPG page now displays recently declined submissions, to help pinpoint which submissions were declined and why. Submissions will only be displayed for 7 days from when they are declined.

- Tags can now be added to ARPG submissions. Tags can be added both during the creation of new ARPG submissions and retroactively via the "Submissions" tab of any Lythian you own.
Tags you have blocked via your account settings will cause an image to be blurred out until clicked on, if it has matching tags. The Art Gallery will use tags from all depicted Lythians, while the Lythian profile gallery will only display the tags that the owner adds.

- A new setting has been added to the Lythian profile edit options: "Default Art Visibility" — This is currently hidden by default, but can now be changed to "visible" which will automatically make future submissions featuring that Lythian publicly visible when approved.

For the Inamorate Wrap-Up

For the Inamorate has officially ended! The current scheduled date for prizes to be sent out is Monday, March 28.
