Aura Forge is an art roleplay game, based on a species known as "Cotah," and the world they inhabit with other species and races. Cotah live in peace with the other creatures in the world--or they did, until mysterious and aggressive monsters appeared. Monsters have been invading the world, wreaking havoc and causing chaos in their path. No one is sure where they came from or what their purpose is--if they have one.

Much of the Cotah's world remains unexplored, although adventurers are working hard to rectify that. The world contains nearly every imaginable climate--and many climates that are unimaginable. The new town of Anchorage stands at the center of a large continent, and works as a hub for quests and adventures.

Within this world, you are encouraged to collect Cotah, breed them, and train them to battle monsters and other Cotah. The "canon" world will be gradually revealed as the group progresses, but you should not be limited by that, as the world contains all manner of locations to explore--if you want to place your Cotah in a specific setting, you should do so!

Aura Forge aims to create both a guided adventure and a sandbox world to explore--so come on in and join us!

Hello, everyone!

It’s been a while since the last update, huh? But it’s good to see you again! The last update discussed big changes coming to Aura Forge, and resulted in a hiatus of sorts for some time. During this time, I’ve been working on some exciting stuff -- and I’m here to discuss that with you today!

First and foremost, I would like to introduce you to…

Visit the website at!

Aestralis is the future of Aura Forge -- think of it like a spiritual successor to the Aura Forge you knew before. Aestralis will not be hosted on DeviantArt (although it does have a group here for fanart, information, etc.), but will be its own standalone game on its own site.

This is exciting for a lot of reasons! It means we can operate without the limitations of DeviantArt, and consistently implement new features and games to play, all from the comfort of our own website.

Some things will be changing (a lot of companion features have taken on a more virtual petsite theme), and some things will stay the same (a lot of the Cotah you know and love return as companions, with fresh updated looks!)


Aestralis will continue to operate under the Creative Commons license -- while I considered making a new game without this limitation, it is very important to me to foster a community of open creativity. I hope continuing with Creative Commons licensing will help us to do that!

That being said, Aestralis is not open yet! It’s still under development for now. However, more information will be posted in the coming days, via Aestralis’ social media (linked below). Additionally, Aura Forge will be discontinued in its current capacity -- I want to be able to focus all of my energy on Aestralis as a standalone game, so all further development will be on Aestralis and its media!

Thank you so much for sticking with Aura Forge all this time and I cannot wait to move into this next phase of its life together!
