Avalon

Avalon is a realm of perfect balance and the existence of an equal opposite. The two constantly warring halves leave the air full of magic, forever sustained as a hotspot for upcoming magic users so long as one side doesn't overtake the other... With this new realm comes four new Lythian Species and one new Companion Species available for creation!

Avalon has been added to the Enigmatic Realm Key pool, found in Truffle's Treasure Trove! But read on for a way to get a headstart into the realm...

faerilee.png
The wish-granting Faerilees are simple folk, born from dandelion wishes to the extent of even taking on features of their "creator"'s wish! Their membrane-covered antennae allow them to sense wishes in order to help aid in their fulfillment!

fabremon.png
To create a Fabremon, a spirit is beckoned into a magic-imbued gem, made with fabric and stitching it with life. However, the spirits involved aren't always particularly willing, especially those from an ages-old battle...

galibyte.png
What's this? Another species with a core and chargers...? The Galibytes, however, are entirely artificial. They additionally completely lack any noteworthy magical inclination, instead opting for dedication towards science and the creation of machines that make up for their lack of ability. Although... did they really originate from Avalon...?

https://lythbound.com/storage/assets/info/species/veela-charmed-subspecies.pnghttps://lythbound.com/storage/assets/info/species/veela-jinxed-subspecies.png
Rivaling the Levii in height, Veelae are incapable of harboring any other state of being other than being benevolent or malevolent, meaning they can be very prone to different interpretations on the subject of "Good" or "Evil"!

atenilee.png
Lastly, the affection-eating Atenilae are a new, ridable companion who have come straight for your love! They are an artificial reconstruction, made with a combination of magic and science.

Most of these species, as well as the Leabell subspecies Lealai, and Buzinyas, are of MinkasReverie's creation, originating from an ARPG known as FaerieMeadow before being brought into Lythbound!

Dromilae were conceptualized and created by CakeBird, and Ponilae were conceptualized and created by Jarre.
Fabremon were initially conceptualized and created by wolvesstrife, before being merged into FaerieMeadow and then Lythbound.

Welcome, Meadowlings!

If you own any FaerieMeadow or Fabremon characters, please send in a support ticket with proof of character creation and/or ownership! Examples of proofs of ownership include Toyhou.se transfer histories, screenshots, etc. Characters must have existed before October 15th, 2020 to qualify!
Applicable Species Include:
- Atenilee
- Buzinya (see below for import information)
- Faerilee
- Fabremon
- Galibyte
- Faefluff (will be imported as Veela - Charmed)
- Faejinx (will be imported as Veela - Jinxed)
- Leabell


Meadowling "MYOs" from before October 15th, 2020 may also be brought in and will be added to the Index as a new slot using a placeholder image.
Buzinya characters may be subject to requiring redesign before being brought in due to the nature of original Buzinyas.
Buzinya "MYOs" from before October 15th, 2020 will be compensated with your choice of Buzinya or Buzimew morph item + either a Lythian or Companion Avalon Egg.

Upon transferring old characters to the Lythbound index, you will be granted the Meadowling hidden achievement!

On-Site Supporter System

We have officially implemented a new Supporter System that runs without Patreon! We hope this will be more readily accessible to users who don't have Patreon but wish to support us.

Starting today, Supporter Packs are available to be purchased from the Cash Shop as an item, which you can then "activate" from your Inventory in order to get Supporter benefits! Additionally, these items are transferrable, allowing you to purchase and gift Supporter Status to other users! These will not automatically renew themselves once they run out, but you can see how much time you have remaining from the Supporter Hub, and add additional time at any point.

Full Supporter Status perks are listed in the Cash Shop!

At this current moment, these items are available in flavors of 30 Days, 180 Days, and 360 Days!

767.png768.png769.png

Eventually, we plan to add an automated subscription system similar to the Lythbound Patreon (which will continue running concurrently until the subscription system is implemented) and alternative payment methods outside of PayPal. There is no estimated date for these features at this current time but they are planned!

As always, thank you all for your support, whether you choose to pay or not! 

...Wait, what's coming out of the Door...?!

EVENT: Buzinya Invasion!
With Avalon’s door being opened, a flood of Buzinyas and Buzimews seem to have viciously escaped. Sightings from other realms are increasing by the day as they’ve begun running amok in all the Realms of Lyth. As such, they’ll be a lot more common than they were before… And with that, two representatives have appeared, hoping to remedy this situation in two very different ways…

Ruby.png

Ruby, a very chIpper Faerilee doesN’t seem all that pressed with the sudden invasion, in Fact hE seems rather… welComing? NoT to mEntion how enthusiastic he is to show off his rather interesting stock, available for purchase until the enD of the event.

1043.png1044.png

Nill.png

On the other hand Nill, a Galibyte, is looking for extra hands! They need all the help they can get, as it seems they’re trying to create a new concoction to safely purge a Buzinya or Buzimew from a host’s body, returning them to normal! They also appear to have information on how these parasites can very easily be made harmless…
1024.png

This event will run from now to November 30th at 23:59:59 site time! Participating in any prompt from the Buzinya Research Facility will reward you with a special achievement as well as a guaranteed Avalon key for any Lythian tagged in a prompt from the facility.

Additionally, we have three Lythians up for raffle! Be sure to check them out below!

Will you help Nill create a cure? Or will you use their trust to your advantage, furthering the infection?

Forms and Updates!

Updates to Alternate Forms!

Updates have been made to alternate forms to make them all the more enjoyable to use!

- Now, you're freely able to modify the name of alternate form tabs, allowing you to freely designate alternate palettes or forms of the same species!
- Additionally, you can hide or delete alternate forms! Deleted forms will require a new Formula Plus (and any other relevant items) to re-obtain.
- Lastly, you can also sort the tabs as desired, if you have a specific way you'd like to organize them ("Base Form" will always display first).

These settings may be found via an "Edit" button that has been added at the end of the form list for any Lythians which have already unlocked alternate forms.

Going forward, alternate forms also now individually list subspecies, body types, and Crossbreed parent species! We will be slowly going through and fixing applicable Lythian forms to properly portray these changes, however we would greatly appreciate if users send in a Support Ticket if they would like their Lythians with alternate forms to be updated faster!

Other QOL Adjustments

- There are now random trick and treat buttons for Trick or Treating, found on the Haunted Faire 2022 Index page.
- Custom content warnings may now be added to Lythians and companions. Please note we will be moderating usage of this feature, as it is intended to warn other users about potentially uncomfortable content in a Lythian's description or design! Lythian profiles should remain PG-13 even when using this feature.
- Lythian and companion profiles now have an additional set of navigational arrow buttons. These buttons will take you through the next/last general index entries rather than the user's personal characters.
- A new achievement category, "Hidden", has been added and will be used for some retired and secret achievements. Several old achievements have been recategorized from "Event" to "Hidden".

- Full graphical overhaul.
- The addition of background music ("The Vine", licensed under CC BY 4.0) (toggleable via mute button).
- Art updates to game icon and Dangerous Vine Sticker.
- More fullscreen adjustments.
If any of these updates do not immediately display, please try clearing your browser cache (Ctrl+F5 or similar).

In addition to this update, a new setting has been added to Layout Settings, as follows:

Automatically mute music/sounds?
(If on, arcade games that have music will always start in a muted state, but music/sound may be toggled back on while in the game.)

Other Updates

- Daily Tasks page updated to include various other daily, or semi-daily activities.

- Fixed an issue with the Gotta Capture 'em All achievement wherein captures were not being counted properly.
A button to "Fix Capture Achievements" has been temporarily added to the bottom of the Companion Captures page. Either clicking this button or successfully capturing another companion should award any missing levels of this achievement.

- Added wiki guide on how to avoid some forms of cultural appropriation when making and submitting characters. Going forward, we will be strictly following these guidelines when approving character submissions as well.

- Added "Nunito" (Lythbound's "default" font) to the text editor font list. May require clearing your browser cache (Ctrl+F5 or similar) to view.
