Secret Santa Reminder, December Patreon Bonus, Other Updates

December Patreon Bonus

Patreon supporters who join the Patreon before December 1st will have the opportunity to receive bonus gems from visiting the upcoming Advent Calendar in December, in addition to their usual rewards.

The Advent Calendar will be open for 25 days starting December 1st and Patreon supporters who support before December 1st for December will receive gems each day they visit, based on their tier (regular monthly gems will also be sent out at the beginning of the month)!
- $2 tier - 8 gems per visit
- $5 tier - 20 gems per visit
- $10 tier - 40 gems per visit

This means you have the potential to get up to 200/500/1000 bonus gems in December, depending on your support tier, and assuming you visit the Advent Calendar every day!

Other Updates

- The Pet MYO form has received some major backend and minor frontend updates. With this update, going forward, all updates to existing custom pets have the following new rules:
1. To update an existing MYO pet, you must currently own the pet and be the pet's creator.
2. The corresponding item (Toy Soap, Little Carrot, or Tea Bag) is now always required when creating a new pet or updating any existing one. (Previously was not required when updating flavor text.)

- Someone's journal has appeared somewhere on the site...

Haunted Faire, Staff, and Secret Santa Sign-Ups!

Haunted Faire Wrap-Up Status


We are currently in the process of working through final approvals for Haunted Faire art/writing submissions! If your submission is declined for any reason, you will still have a grace period opportunity to resubmit.

The submission turn-out for this event was incredible and we've loved seeing everyone's work throughout!
Ink's prompts (Drawtober) prizes are slated to be awarded after all Drawtober submissions have been sorted, and the raffle will be rolled as soon as possible! We appreciate your patience during this wrap-up period!

Staff Opening

We would love to add another individual to our team for Masterlist and ARPG Organization! The full details of this position are available here, but to summarize:

An individual working the Masterlist and ARPG Organization role helps handle internal operation, including (but not limited to):
- approving/denying ARPG submissions
- approving/denying MYO pet/companion/Lythian submissions
- assisting with other internal manual work such as spreadsheet organization
- awarding prizes for games like "Draw the Lythian Above"

This position is considered backend/internal, but may involve user interaction when clarifying information regarding submissions. While strong communication skills are a plus, the most important aspect of this position is attention to detail and ability to meticulously sort through information!

To apply, please email us with the form found on the opportunities page.

Secret Santa Sign-Ups


Our yearly Secret Santa exchange is now available for sign-ups! Please visit the page for full information and the sign up form! Sign-ups close November 25, 2021 23:59:59 EST!

Inventory Updates and Referral Shop

Inventory and Vault Improvements

The inventory and vault have received some improvements!

You can now quickly move items between your vault and inventory by selecting the checkboxes underneath items in each respective location. Additionally, a "toggle all" button was added to quickly check or uncheck all items in either location.

Inventory search will now remember your last search criteria until you submit a new search! This means that if you sort your inventory by "Name - A-Z", even if you leave your inventory page, it will remember that on the next time you return.

Additionally, the temporary 50 item limit for shop quickstock has been removed in favor of pagination.

Referral Shop

The Referral Shop has opened and has a variety of stock available for those hard-earned referral points!

With this update, the Sharp Orb and Treble Orb items have been updated to be the Sharp Stone and Treble Jelly respectively. They have also been moved from the Gem Shop to the Referral Shop, as the Subspecies Change Potion remains available for Gems and encompasses all subspecies.


There are only 4 days left to participate in the Haunted Faire! Be sure to complete any prompts, enter the free raffle, and collect items before the Lost Realm disappears again for another year! The Haunted Faire will end at November 7, 2021 at 23:59:59 Site Time! (The exception to this is the Haunted Faire Stall, which will remain accessible to make purchases from until the end of the year.)
