"It is good to return to the realms of Lyth once again this year. I welcome Lythians one and all to the Haunted Faire, to partake in our activities, until we lose our connection to your mortal realms once more."

Haunted Faire

The Haunted Faire has become once again accessible to Lythians from the mortal realms and a variety of activities are available again this year! The Faire runs from October 1 until November 7th at 23:59:59 site time, unless another date and time are mentioned for a specific activity.

To see everything available at the Haunted Faire, be sure to visit the event hub!

The Lost Realm is once again available for visitation and you may continue or begin your Realm Familiarity quests there. To get started, a free Lost Key is available here.

Ink has returned with a new set of art prompts! Win pets and an MYO ticket for completing varying amounts of the prompts.

Go bobbing for apples once each day. You probably will not come back with an apple.

Some Haunted Faire traditions have spread throughout other realms as well! Go trick-or-treating at your friends' doors and receive treats (or tricks) each day! The rewards are different for each option, so you will need to decide which you would prefer!

To trick-or-treat, simply visit another member's profile and interact with the UI at the top of the page. Trick-or-treating will only be available on the profiles of individuals who have recently logged in.

The Faire's visual art costume contest is back this year! Entries for this part of the event are only open until October 22, 2021 at 23:59:59 (to allow time for voting) so be sure to get your entries in!

The Ringleader's stall is available for spending your Faire Tickets for a variety of prizes from past Faire events, including the limited time Moonsbane Potion! This portion of the event is open until the end of the year, December 31st at 23:59:59.

Got candy from trick-or-treating? There are a selection of thematic pets invading the Pet Shelter who would love to take it off your hands. If you're lucky, the pet you feed might decide to come home with you! Feed these pets in the shelter with your Haunted Faire foods while you can -- they will disappear on November 1st!

Starting on October 18th until October 31st, Eidolons will be released throughout the site for discovery... Will you find them all?

New (sub)Species

The Haunted Faire's influence has spread widely through the realms, and some Axomaurs are feeling... strange.

axomaur-monster-subspecies.png

The Monster subspecies is now available for Axomaurs!
This is a temporary condition that overrides an Axomaur's normal subspecies. This means that an Axomaur can be both Terrestrial and a Monster by transforming between the two. A result of this transformation is that the Axomaur's size and strength increases by quite a bit! In this state, Axomaurs will chase anything that moves — often resulting in them getting lost chasing birds or bugs — and are prone to losing control.

Use a Moonsbane Potion from the Ringleader's stall to change your Axomaur into this subspecies.
(Monster Axomaurs concepted and designed by CakeBird!)

djiminni.png

Not only are Axomaurs behaving strangely, but a new species has started appearing... dubbed the Djiminni, this new species is now available as a companion!

Djiminnis are spirits who are often associated with dark magic, as they are believed to be side effects from conjuring its spells. However, they are neither innately evil nor innately good; they come into being and then simply exist within the realms. They are made of a gaseous material that allows them to float silently about and even phase through solid objects. And, in reality, these creatures are quite shy! Most of the time, Djiminnis are covered by a solid exterior of their own making that consists of three parts: a mask, an outer shell, and other decorative pieces.

Read more about them here!

Collect materials to make their lure and build up your familiarity with the Lost Realm to capture these unique companions!
(Original concept for the Djiminni created by Traumlaterne and adapted by Raishiteru!)

New Monthly Contest

A new monthly contest has begun. You can read more on the Costume Contest page!

Congratulations to the winner of last month's Monthly Contest!
"A Kella Ser could be found balancing unsteady atop a stepping stool as they tried with much difficulty to reach a bottle that was at the top of the spice rack. The house had clearly not been made for a smaller species such as themself and it had for a while now been causing problems to overcome. Now however they weren't really sure how to, there wasn't a counter or anything near enough to climb onto and the only stepping stool he had, was already balancing underneath them. With a frustrated groan the small feline like creature made a quick but likely dumb decision, unable to think of any ot..."

Referral System

Referral System

We have added a way to refer your friends to join Lythbound!

When an individual signs up using your username as their referral, you will receive a new referral point currency, which can be spent in an upcoming shop for a variety of rewards! (This release is being staggered, so that the referral URLs become available immediately and the shop will be available later.)

Additionally, you will receive gems whenever one of your referrals purchases gems. (This perk is active immediately.)

Review all of the Refer-a-Friend information on this page. This is also available via Personal->Referrals in the navigation.

Other Updates

We have added artist credits to all item types when viewed in the Item Catalog (previously, these credits were only on Pet items). Adding the credits is a manual process and will be completed over time, which will result in some items saying "No artist data" temporarily!

New Frames

24.png25.png26.png

Three new frames have arrived and are ready to be used by your Lythians! These can now be previewed at the Frame Previewer tool.

These items have also been added to the item catalog: Frame of Infinity, Truffle's Frame, and Unidentified Framing Object.

In addition to the new frames, a "Flip" button has been added to the Lythian framing page which will allow you to flip your Lythian's image horizontally within their frame.

Companion Advent Sale and Azyrei's Artifacts

september-advent.png

Lythbound: Companion Guest Advent Sale

A selection of companions have arrived! These guest artist-designed companions will be made available on the day shown on top of their silhouette.


TIMELINE: September 16th through September 25th
- Designs will be posted according to the number shown in the preview, at 17:00:00 site time. They will be available for varied sale methods on their own listings.
(All days will contain more than one design -- one sillhouette is shown for display purposes.)

Azyrei's Artifacts

Azyrei.png

Azyrei has arrived and is offering Loonoles (and other items) to those wily enough to beat him at his new game Azyrei's Artifacts.

Azyrei's Artifacts can be played once per day, and winning Loonoles or items from this game does not contribute to the daily Arcade limit. To win, take the final artifact before Azyrei does!
(Items may be received from this game when winning but are not guaranteed.)

Azyrei is an NPC created based on Kella Ser KS9. His legacy will carry on in the absence of a dear friend and his existence is dedicated to her as well.

Halloween Sales Event Sign-Up

We are seeking guest artists for a Halloween-themed sales event, to be posted at the end of October. This will be a gacha-style event, where designs are randomly rolled, with flat prices decided upon by accepted participants. Please sign up if you would be interested in participating and completing 1 playable species design (and 1 optional companion design) by a deadline of October 20th, 2021.
