Templates of trackers and such! I gotta move from Weebly and I keep checking on the page to see if there's a template I could use to remake my trackers ;v;

+ templates are a good starting point for people so it'd be pretty useful

Shhhh it's mysterious. They come from a secret hidden place and not even the local Bagbeans know where they pop from!! :O

( Lee lore release will be coming, but it might be more than just a random lore drop ;) we will see!! )

I am most looking forward to the Types and Anatomy of the Griffians being made. I feel like the Anatomy sections will help artists draw their Griffians accurately :'3

bulletbead by Diamione  Looking most forward to Quest info!

bulletbead by Diamione  Even more information on Griffian species is also something I’m REALLY excited in seeing.

Would it be possible to have a page on the weebly addressing love items? Specifically, if I get a love item... what comes next? :,D

I was extreeeemely lucky enough to win my very first love item recently, but the only information I could find on what to do next was from [RETIRED] Love Bean Hatching Trial (+ Sprout Info). I ended up asking a friend to make 100% sure and I'm still a bit worried that I missed a step. Having a page to address what these items are, where to get one, and what to do next would be fantastic! iwi

FAQ
Griffians

In the following FAQ, it might be beneficial to link to the species sheet for the mentioned open species.
"Q:Are there any open species in Griffia?
A: Yes! Snyches, Ealegs and Dystbunnies are open species and free to make!"

RestartBob Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2018
Additionally this FAQ further down the page answers the same question. You could link the first FAQ to this one? Or combine the two, maybe

"Q: Can I make my own Companion Griffians?
A: Most Companion Griffians are closed species which means you can not make your own. However; There are three open species you can create that is part of each of the three continents and they are the following:
- Snyches (Beania)
- Ealegs (Capria)
- Dystbunnies (Fluffia)"

I just wanted to suggest linking to actual full versions of things like species sheets. The caster one only links to a small version and you can't read it at all. Maybe even just link to the deviation or something. It's frustrating to have something within reach but then have to go dig it out anyway.

Just a few suggestions bc I've been having trouble finding stuff when they're listed under certain categories.

I noticed that the NPCs, Mascots, and Gods/Demi Gods pages are listed under the "World" tab, and while I understand why they were placed there, I feel like they'd fit better under the "Griffians" tab since they're characters and not places/lore?

This one I've been going back and forth on, but it feels a little weird that Mutations/Forms are listed in a seperate category than Design Changes? Could we at least hyperlink the Mutations/Forms page on the design changes page where it lists mutation items so it's a bit easier to find?

Or in general, hyperlink stuff to different pages? A good example is the Activity Progression Chart, I think it would be nice if every activity listed had a link to the activity. It's actually already done on the Getting Started page :o so you guys could just copy paste it.

Why are the Activity Progression Chart, Activities, and Getting Started pages seperate? All 3 pages list all of the trials and what completing them does, but I think that info should just be put onto the Activities page. Get rid of the progression chart or put it in a tab on the activities page, and link the activities page on the Getting Started page.

Also link to the activity rewards on the Items page on the Activities page.

I think that's about it, I hope my suggestions will be helpful <3

How To Get Started! - GRIFFIA

I noticed that this is a really long page, and it took me a little while to find the bit about SECs. Can I recommend a Table of Contents at the top that goes down to anchors? Link to the section about SECs in specific would've been convenient and make it easier to find than linking my friend the page and telling them to scroll down.
Extra suggestion: can SECs have their own 'how to get started' or page having to do with missions or just a overall FAQ sorta thing for SECs? I just feel like it'd be more convenient and easier just overall to have them separate

For the FAQ or just the Time Activities sections in general, can the watering guidelines be added? I was having trouble finding them until I realized I didn't look at the watering wednesdays journal XD

Menu: Gameplay
Page: Basic ARPG Rules
I still find the explanation of the background rules to be somewhat unclear.
"- Monthly Time Activity Art is the only exception in which you don’t have to change the background with each drawing.​
    + Since Pools, Trees and Gardens don't move, it makes sense the background will be similar in each picture. However, it will need to be completely re-drawn each month in order to count. "

This line is a bit confusing, because every background has to be re-drawn, doesn't it? The description on the page makes sense for training and the like, but it's sort of implying you're not allowed to ever draw similar looking backgrounds and have them count for peas. Like, if you wanted to keep a background of the exterior of you bagbean's house very similar. For example, regarding only the background elements and the change in pose in the fun simple Wally Companion Training, would it be acceptable to submit the first drawing as an event, and then the last drawing for a different event (like team thursday, providing it met the theme)?

"- Picture two has 3 tree trunks in it, which will work since none of the other images have 3 tree trunks present. "
This is another point that makes me wonder how much variety in vague forest-like backgrounds I would need to ensure that they are not too similar.

I guess my suggestion is to make it more clear what parts of the Art/Submission Guidelines are only referring to training, and to potentially clear up the use of "elements" if there are no clear guidelines on what elements are necessary.

You'll need to bring that up in the QnA <3  Because that is what that means :) Backgrounds can have same elements, but have to be different in appearance.

I'm still confused. Then you do have to change the background? But it says you don't, you just have to redraw it?

But if everyone else gets it, it's probably just me, and the language is fine.

:iconaurenbunni:
aurenbunni Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
It's stated that way because time activity drawings are an exception to this rule:

- If it is Point Farming from Training, Classes, Etc., it also needs a different background each time
    + Must include some texture and depth ( not just a block for the ground and a block for the sky )

In time activities, you have to draw the tree, pond and flower monthly, meaning your backgrounds will likely look VERY similiar if you draw them altogether every month. This rule is stating that its okay if they look similar for this specific activity. But you do have to make a New drawing every month with those three things to get your Time Loot.

Think I got it. I don't know why, just something about it wasn't making sense to me. Now I'm just worried about accidentally making a background too similar to a previous background, but if that happens, it happens. Thank you for taking the time to spell out the obvious!

-change suggestion: Under the "Changes; answers" section under pupils, I'd elaborate on how you can change pupils (ie color of pupil to a lighter or darker shade of the eye) just so that people aren't confused into thinking they can change the pupil shape without using a starbean :D

But... you can change the pupil shape without a starbean..

You need a starbean to change the iris shape.

Ahhh I think the mix up is because it says pupil on the starbean mutions ref page
Bagbean Starbean mutations by griffsnuff
but I guess then for that matter, the bank's description need to be updated as well since it says "- Shaped eye (can be any shape)" but a shaped eye is actually a star fruit mutation :3

Shaped eyeball is a star fruit mutation (the whole eye)
Shaped Iris (the color bit) is a star bean mutation 
Shaped Pupil is a free marking ( lighter or darker shape inside iris)

The weebly has all the most updated information.
The mutation sheet lacks specificity (since shaped eye in this case is referring to the Iris if you look at the sheet), but the bank is working on updating all refs. I'll ask for them to specify on this xD

That's nice that the bank is going to get fixed refs :3 I mean I understand how the eye mutations work, it was just something that I saw that I could see other people getting mixed up on.

Def. We are moving most things to the Weebly so all updated information is in one place at all times. So even if the bank is wrong, the Weebly shouldn't be. ( Banks are updated slower due to bank traffic ;3)

I wasn't sure what this went under since it's not a typo or strange language! But when searching snyches, if you type in the search bar "snych", nothing comes up. You only get results if you type in the plural, "snyches". Thought mentioning it might help :3
