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

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.

Haunted Faire Extension and Lythian Marketplace

The Haunted Faire banner

The mysterious magics surrounding the Lost Realm seem weak still, in spite of the rapidly-approaching end of October. The Ringleader informs all visitors that she expects the Lost Realm will continue to be available to the general public for an extra week!

The following Haunted Faire festivities are being extended for one week, until November 7th, 2020 @ 23:59:59!

- Realm prompts and availability
- Drawtober prompts
- Apple Bobbing
- Free raffle entries (this means the raffle will not be rolled until November 8th)

However, the Costume Contest and Eidolon Hunt will close as expected at the end of October 31, 2020.

Lythian Marketplace

We have implemented a dedicated page to list the Lythian designs currently available for purchase or offers.

Unowned designs created by staff and guest artists will be listed here, as well as designs listed by members who are seeking to rehome their characters.

We will be aiming to adjust guest artist/staff premade design sales to occur on-site via these listings. Sales options such as auctions can be posted per-listing, and all comments on the listings will alert the seller. As always, guest artists and staff will be fully allowed to advertise their designs where they would like, but this will hopefully help centralize sales and keep them available to all members.

Moving forward, new auctions will always be held on-site on the relevant character listing.

Member sales listings operate similarly: comments on a listing will notify the seller, and there are various options available when listing a Lythian for sale/trade.

To list one of your Lythians for sale, visit their profile and click the "List Lythian for Sale/Trade" button. Lythians that aren't allowed to be sold won't see the "sales" section, but can still be listed for trade. FPCs cannot be listed at all, as they cannot be transferred.

Once a sale or trade has been agreed upon, it is still up to the seller/purchaser to arrange an exchange of the currency/items/characters/etc and transfer the Lythian. Upon transfer, a Lythian's marketplace listing will automatically be removed, so you don't need to remember to delist them.

Companion marketplace listings are not yet available, but are in the works.

Reminder

You have until November 8 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.

Lythbound Domain Change Complete!

Lythbound logo
Lythbound is here!

Realm of Lyth has officially transferred our domain/URL over to Lythbound! All links should be redirecting to the new URLs. We recommend updating your links to use lythbound.com, but we will be maintaining the realm-of-lyth.com redirect for the foreseeable future so that existing Toyhou.se links, etc. won't break for now.

We are also in the process of updating our social media information and making our brand consistent across all networks — we will continue this process through the coming week.

Thank you all for your patience and support! We are excited about our snappy new URL and brand and look forward to continuing development with this name! As always please report any errors via Discord or by contacting us!

Other Updates

Comment replies and likes have been added to profile comments. Simply click the "Reply" link on a comment to display a reply box, or click the heart to like a comment. Replies have not yet been added to comments in other areas of the site (news or blog posts), but will be once we have confirmed that any bugs have been discovered and ironed out.

A new interactive size chart has been added, allowing for size comparison between all species and/or specific species. This is linked from individual species anatomy pages, as well as the relevant FAQ question.

Small improvements have been made to Lythian profiles to better display their information, including displaying their full collection of unlocked frames, hiding the Biography panel if no text has been added, and allowing the owner to view who has liked the Lythian.

Other minor updates, improvements, and bug fixes have been added across the site.

Haunted Faire

Don't forget that entries to the Costume Contest will close later today, October 23, 2020, 23:59:59! Get those entries in!

Have you been finding the Eidolons hidden around the site each day?
