Hello everyone!
I wanted to quickly run through some plans for the New Year with everyone here as we're going to be making some changes to how the group is run in the near future! So I wanted to talk about new plans and upcoming changes as well!

MASTERLISTS

So one of the things we've been working on is migrating the species to their own MASTERLISTS! Originally we were going to host our masterlists on DeviantArt, but we eventually decided to host the masterlists on Toyhouse instead as they can do WAY more than a DeviantArt account can!
However, before we can move the masterlists permanently, we need to do something else...

TRAIT AND LORE SHEET REVAMPS

I've been wanting to update the species trait sheets for a while, however I'm determined to get it done within the first few months of the year so we can finally start migrating to the new masterlists! The reason for this is...
I WILL BE CHANGING THE TRAIT RARITIES OF LACRIMA MEMBERS AND PIXBEES!
Not a ton! I will be keeping them as similar as possible! However I want to shift some of the rarities around so they make a bit more sense.
I also want to make some new traits for Lacrima Members so they're a bit more unique as a species! On a related note...

LACRIMA MEMBERS

Lacrima members are inspired by a cult that I created in my webcomic, Power Pills. However, when the cult shows up in Power Pills, I'm not going to be stopping people from making fan characters! This means that I'm going to SEVER the connection between the Lacrima SPECIES and the Lacrima COMIC. This will allow Lacrima Members to be FAR more unique in their designs as well!
I also want to try to make strides to get the Lacrima ARPG working soon! However I admit I don't know much about ARPGs, so I need to do research on them before I can do anything like that.
And they're not the ONLY species who will be turning more ARPG focused.

ELEMENTAL CATS

Okay. Let's be honest. Elemental cats are LITERALLY the type of species that people make fun of when they talk about absurd closed species. As such, Elemental Cats will be moving to an OPEN status! I will be turning Elemental cats into an ARPG to justify their existence. But until the ARPG is ready, I will NOT be tracking Elemental cats or limiting their creation anymore! I do NOT plan on discontinuing the species.
That's all the MAJOR announcements for the year! Thank you all so much for your interest in BooksOriginalSpecies! Here's to a great 2021!
