Companion Captures Live!

Companion Captures

Companion Captures are now available! This long awaited feature will allow your Lythians to learn how to find Companion species in the wild and tame them to create your own unique design of that species.

However, before you can capture a Companion, you must learn the taming skill, which Fischer will be happy to help you with!

"Come see me if you wanna catch your own brand new Companions!"

You can read the general requirements for skill unlock quests on this page. When you're ready to get started, Fischer will guide you through everything you need to know about taming a new Companion, and he'll even help you out with making some bait!

 

Reminder

- Secret Santa sign-ups will close on the 25th! Be sure to sign up if you're planning on participating!

Upcoming Item Price Balancing and Miscellaneous Updates

On November 23rd, 2020, we will be adjusting the NPC shop prices of the following items:

Little Carrot - OLD: 30 Loonoles | NEW: 75 Loonoles
Tea Bag - OLD: 30 Loonoles | NEW: 75 Loonoles
Toy Soap - OLD: 50 Loonoles | NEW: 75 Loonoles

This will only affect purchases on and after November 23rd, so stock up now if you would like to utilize the old pricing.

We are updating these prices based on the current economy, Loonole income/usage, and amount of staff input required for approvals. We love seeing everyone's customized pet designs, but also wish to keep the process of item approval sustainable and balanced, and thus are increasing their NPC cost slightly.

Miscellaneous Updates

- Companions can now be listed for sale in their own section of the Adoptable Marketplace. Listings can be posted via their profile, similar to Lythians, however they won't be listable while under trade cooldown.

- The Information Hub has been added to collect miscellaneous informational pages that might not fit strictly in the navigation.

- Basic NPC information has been added to the Information Hub.

Thank you again to everyone for participating in the Haunted Faire! The event shop will be available until the end of the year, though the event will be removed from the site navigation soon.

NPC Shop Updates

NPC shops have received updates, including sorting their stock by category for easier viewing. We have also added the ability for items to have limited stock amounts. In the case of limited items, all site users see the same item availability. This means, if there are three of an item available to everyone, and one person buys one, there will then only be two of those available to everyone, until all items are gone.

The majority of items will have infinite stock, like they always have, but limited stock will be used when we want to release rarer items (such as MYO tickets) in limited amounts.

Speaking of MYO tickets, it looks like Truffle's Treasure Trove has received a shipment. 3 Playable species tickets and 4 Companion tickets have been added for Loonole sale! Be sure to hurry and grab them before they are gone!

We are planning on adding new stock of MYO tickets for Loonoles in limited amounts periodically in the future as well.

Other Updates

- New Crafting recipes have recently been added, including a pet and new frame. Good luck searching for them!

- The deadline for FPC design turn-ins has passed and any FPCs remaining undesigned will be removed this week, as per this news post. If you had a design in mind but were unable to submit by the deadline, you can always submit them with an MYO ticket in the future! MYO ticket characters have fewer limitations than FPCs and can be obtained via the gem shop, limited Loonole stock, or events.

Secret Santa Sign-ups, Guest Artist Applications, and Reminders!

Secret Santa banner
Every year, a visitor appears and spreads good cheer amongst other realms. No one is quite sure where they come from -- when the visitor tries to speak the name of their homeland, naught but static falls upon the ears of those who hear.

Despite this, the visitor is well liked and greeted kindly, as they oft bring gifts for Lyth's inhabitants... but only those who have first given a gift to someone else. Thus many realms have developed a custom of exchanging gifts, to be sure they are on the visitor's good side when they arrive... as there are rumors about what may happen if you are not.

Sign-ups for next month's "Secret Santa" event have opened! This is a digital creation exchange for all members of Lythbound! Full information is available on the Secret Santa event page.

The deadline for sign-ups is November 25, 2020 @ 23:59:59 Eastern time!

Guest Artist Applications

We have updated the process for applying to be a Guest Artist and participating in related design events. There is a new form available completely on-site, found here.

The updated process for choosing temporary Guest Artists will be as follows:

- You must submit your application via this page (if you emailed us before November 5th, 2020, please submit a new application on the new page)!
- Your application will be stored until you update or delete it.
- We will announce when we are seeking Guest Artists for designs, and an event will be displayed at the top of the application page for anyone who has a submitted application. Details for the specific event will be provided in the description, and a button will be there to indicate your interest in participating. You will need to indicate your interest in each event separately, as this will help us when organizing and knowing who is able to participate.
- If chosen to participate, we will then contact you per-event with instructions and further information.

We are excited to move forward with this new system as it should help us have guest designs show up more frequently, and make the organization and structure of their creation smoother. As always, if you have questions, please contact us! And again, if you emailed us a Guest Artist application prior to this news post, please resubmit via the new form.

Upcoming Guest Artist Event

An event has been listed in which we are seeking Guest Artists for winter/holiday designs. Please go here to indicate your interest!

(The deadline for designs in this event is relatively short, due to waiting until this new system was complete to announce the event. Please apply soon if you would like to participate. We will aim for longer deadlines for future events!)

Free Igalyph Raffle

IG73 Image

A free raffle for a wonderfully ghastly Igalyph has been added to the raffles page, provided by Call-me-Cinder! Please enter via the raffles page and good luck!

Reminders

The Haunted Faire is ending November 7 at 23:59:59 Eastern Time! Please get your entries and participation in before it disappears for this year!

You only have until November 8 (this coming Sunday) at 23:59:59 Eastern Time to submit designed versions of FPCs. Any that are not designed (still showing the NPC, non-customized version of the art) will be removed after this point. Please refer to this news post for full information.
