It’s been a while but the realm is ready to introduce two new species!
Please welcome in these friendly and not-so-friendly faces~
✦ Where Did They Come From?
The first sightings of Kuniklovs and Nitpickies can be traced back to Vulcareal, around the Empty Tundra. The explorers who ventured out into Nowhere were too busy trying to survive, therefore, never managed to get closer looks. That, coupled with the extreme weather conditions made them mistake the two species for feral creatures.
But we now know that’s not the case.
No one knows how long these species have been settled there — or even when they came to be — since the area is mostly desolate. However, Kuniklovs and Nitpickies have coexisted happily for a while; Kuniklovs offer Nitpickies protection and in turn, Nitpickies provide Kuniklovs with items that only they can get their grubby little paw-gloves on.
✦ Why Are They Here Now?
The recent flooding of several Lyth cities did not leave the rest of the world unaffected.
The manmade disasters increased the rainfall throughout Lyth, which directly correlated to a rise in the number of avalanches all the way out in Nowhere. Although they were unaware of the real reason, Kuniklovs and Nitpickies knew that their home was becoming unsafe.
After some discussion, they decided it was time to spread out towards the rest of civilization — the inhospitable, barren Empty Tundra was a weird living choice anyhow.
Especially since their young would be arriving soon...
✦ KuniPicki Prompts
✦ First Impressions
What is your Lythian’s reaction upon meeting a Kuniklov and/or Nitpicki for the first time?
You can use the example Kuniklov and Nitpicki pictured above!
✦ A Helping Hand
Let’s help our new friends get acquainted with the rest of the world!
Do you take them to see the sights?
Or maybe introduce them to new technologies?
✦ Home-Cooked Meal
Needless to say, the food in the Empty Tundra is...okay.
Why don’t you cook them a meal they can’t find in Nowhere?
Visual at least clean lines and flat colors (or shading if black and white)
Written at least 250 words per prompt (“draft completion” required) (or per participant if RP log)
You can turn in a maximum of three prompts; you can do the same prompt three times if you'd like!
Submit them via the ARPG submit form under "Event Prompt."
They must be turned in by July 20th, 2020 @ 23:59:59 to be eligible for rewards!
Completing at least one prompt gives you the “They Came From Nowhere” achievement!
Completing one prompt is also the minimum requirement for entering the raffles below.
Completing three prompts gives you an MYO Antecedent ticket!
As always, you get Loonoles based on the piece(s) you submit.
Remember to claim the bonus + 5 (Event Quest) Loonoles!
✦ KuniPicki Flaffles & Raffle
As previously mentioned, one of the reasons Kuniklovs and Nitpickies are making themselves known is because they need somewhere safer to raise their young. While some have been carrying their babies around with them, others have adopted a “throw them into the deep end” approach.
Lythians have been uncovering some Kuniklov and Nitpicki younglings tucked away in various nooks and crannies: tree holes, leaf piles, and even strangers’ belongings! According to them, their babies are quite capable of surviving on their own — having grown up in a much harsher environment — but it’d be nice to give them safe homes anyhow:
Introducing our very first batch of Kuniklovs and Nitpickies!
From now until July 13th, 2020 @ 23:59:59, you may enter for a chance to win.
For the flaffles (flat sale raffles), you’ll still need to pay upon winning.
You can enter for more than one but you’ll only win one (per category)!
Please click the image above for more information.
Kuniklovs are a revamp of an old species by @Buntato & @Solly.
If you have an old Kuniklov, contact us with proof and we’ll add it to the ML.
The Kuniklovs and Nitpickies from the batch above are in their baby form.
More information on how to grow them will come at a later date~
✦ Upcoming Event & New Items
It would appear that mating season is coming soon… we suggest you contact any potential partners in preparation for August 17th! Here are a few things to consider:
- each breeding will cost $15 or $20 USD depending on the tier you choose
- only antecedents can breed, so no Forim descendants or companions
- an antecedent can only be paired up once per season
- each pairing will only produce one offspring*
- same-species partners will produce babies of their species
- different-species partners will produce crossbreeds
* The only exception to the one-offspring-per-pair rule is if the parents are owned by two different users and both parties want a baby from that pairing. This is the only time a batch may have two babies, but each party has to pay individually for their offspring. So please plan accordingly!
In addition, we’ve added new items for those of you who’ve been wanting to make large changes to your characters. Truffle’s Treasure Trove now carries two redesign items, so head over there if you’d like to purchase them!
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!
