On February 14th, specific pre-purchase options will be available for a slightly higher price.

The Persian Purfec, Drabloon, and Cookie Jellybun are out to play again!
They are only obtainable through our Valentine's art prompts:
Make a punny or corny Valentine's card featuring a Lythian!
For writing, this could be a poem instead.
Depict your Lythian confessing to someone (or several someones).
Their feelings can be romantic, friendly, or maybe even rivalry!
If using others' characters, please obtain permission for the interaction first.
Your Lythian has received a gift of chocolate!
Do they enjoy it? Do they hate it? Did they just find it in their pocket and are perplexed?
Depict how they react to this candy windfall.
Visual at least clean lines and flat colors (or shading if black and white)
Written at least 250 words per prompt (or per participant if RP log)
You can turn in a maximum of three prompts; you can do one prompt three times if you'd like!
Submit them via the ARPG submit form under "Event Prompt."
They must be turned in by February 24th @ 23:59:59 to be eligible for rewards!
One of the three Valentine's pets listed above will be randomly rolled for you.
(It is possible to receive multiples, so we encourage you to trade with others!)
You will also receive 5 Loonoles as a base reward.
It's time to spread some good vibes and chocolate this February!
If you have any questions/comments, please feel free to leave a comment~
January has been a busy month and it’s time for a new announcement.
Please welcome Astral Story and its denizens!
Astral Story was actually a project that I (Jack) had worked on throughout 2019, and then continued simultaneously alongside Lyth for a while. Unfortunately, running two games stretched me a bit too thin, and after the success of the Lyth merge, I decided (with the help of Lyth’s team) to merge Astral Story into the Realm of Lyth!
Similar to the Symph Pond merger earlier this year, Astral Story’s species and concepts are being absorbed completely into Lyth, so you’ll be seeing some new faces and features thanks to this! We expect this to mostly be a lot of additions to Lyth, same as it was with the Symph merger, and I’m excited to move forward with even more cool species to play with! Astral Story species will gain the ability to take part in any aspect of Lyth that any of our other playable species can.
Here's the six new Astrals, who will now be resident Lythians:
Artwork by @Jackalune and Species Guide!
If you had an Astral Story account, we will also be merging those into Lyth, so you will be able to redeem and keep earned things on your Realm of Lyth account! We hope to once again fully integrate this new community with the Lythian community, so please give the Astral Story folks a warm welcome as well!
Further information on how Astral Story species and inventories will be adjusted for Lyth
The biggest alteration happening along with this is currency changes. With these merges and a re-evaluation of our many currencies, we have reached the decision to merge all currencies into one: Loonoles. While we may have other event/specific currencies in the future, we feel that one currency for all primary shops and functions will be less confusing and allow us to focus less on balancing that section of the game, so we can put more of our efforts into making other new features.
To facilitate this, the following currency will be changed to Loonoles at the following rates:
All Lyth Currencies 1:1 Loonoles (1 any currency = 1 Loonole)
That'd be Carashean, Colozian, Ladarka, Mordial, Pippik, Loy, Moyn, Myur, Wreyn, Wyar, and Zeyl.
Marbles 1:1 Loonoles (1 Marble = 1 Loonole)
Dust (Astral Story’s currency) 5:1 Loonoles (5 Dust = 1 Loonoles)
Gems are NOT being changed, as these were purchased with USD.
We are still working on the best method of releasing paid currency perks for those with this currency.
Our plan from here is to adjust the amount earned from various art activities, as well as potentially shop prices, to try and ensure a stable economy, and better equality for currency-earning between artistic methods moving forward.
I am very excited to work on all of the new things coming to Lyth, and hope you all are excited to see them as well!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please join our Discord for live assistance~
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the #LythforAustralia event! Thanks to everyone's donations, you managed to raise approximately $347 AUD for the listed charities working to aid the Australian bush fire relief! This is absolutely incredible and we are so thankful for everyone's generosity!
There are still a couple designs available that are also aimed to raise money for these charities, so the final total will end up being over $350 AUD!
Thank you all so much again! We look forward to holding more charity events in the future and hope that everyone enjoyed this event as well!
Though this event has ended, the following text from the announcement remains for posterity:
The Realm of Lyth is holding a short charity event in order to help raise money for the Australia bush fire relief efforts!
During the course of this event (from January 19 - January 25), we will be offering a variety of designs and cosmetic items for sale.
100% of the proceeds will be going to various Australian charities.
We have three approved charities which can be donated to for this event:
✦ The Red Cross ✦
✦ The Center of Disaster Philanthropy ✦
✦ The WWF ✦
For proof, please screenshot the donation receipt!
The total amount donated and date of donation must be visible.
Your real name, address, and other personal information may be blacked out.

Pictured designs by: Jackalune, Raishiteru, Yams, and toripng
Over the course of the event, designs from the staff and guest artists will be available via flat sale, auction, and raffle.
They will be hosted on the creators' accounts and posted to the group gallery.
Only real currency will be accepted for these, as the goal is to raise money for charity!
Orches (art by toripng)
With this event, we are introducing a new collectible creature species: the Orch!

After your hold has been placed, you have 1 hour to make a donation of the required amount.
Then, comment again with a proof of donation and your site username.
After confirmation, we will link your new collectible creature to your site account!
