Getting a CharacterIn order to begin in CTnet, you must first obtain a character. This is done by obtaining a Starter Voucher. You can get a Bronze Starter Voucher when you join, or you can get other vouchers through other means, such as events or purchasing adoptables.
You may notice that your Bronze Starter Voucher has empty bars next to it, these can be filled to upgrade it to a Silver Starter Voucher by drawing NPCs from the group gallery.
Having a character is important, as they will help you get anything else you may want for the group.
Go to the Redeem Vouchers journal entry and comment with the following:
- The Voucher you want to redeem
- What you want to redeem it for
- Any customization you want (class, gender, etc.)
Once you have your Starter, there's a lot of things you can do.
Going ExploringIn CTnet, there are a variety of areas to explore. In order to explore these, you must choose an area to explore. Comment on the Explore journal with the short (fav.me) link to the Character you want to explore with and up to two Companions, as well as the name of the area. You will be given a prompt, which you can either write or draw from to get items, Seeds (group currency), experience, and more. You can explore as many areas as you like as long as you can keep up with the prompts.
All creatures in CTnet are capable of being given a Burst Form using Burst Shards.
CTnet (https://www.deviantart.com/ctnet) will become part of the EvoCrit (https://www.deviantart.com/evocrit) project soon. You can read the TOS for those here: https://evocrit.com/tos.php. Additionally, having a CTnet character now requires an EvoCrit account. All completed characters will be retained, as long as you make an account on EvoCrit.
Notice: Super Group + Event Info Coming
As you may have noticed, CTnet (https://www.deviantart.com/ctnet) is now a Super Group. I will be changing the layout, as well as adding new content and properly starting the Burst Intro event shortly. In addition, there will be a few new things added now that there's Super.
Event: Burst Intro (WIP)
This event will be an event to get a Burst Shard. This can be any type of Burst Shard, and you don't have to have your Character drawn yet to get one. I will be adding some NPC art to the gallery (and below), and there will be prompts for this event involving them.
Class is mostly cosmetic, although it also affects which species skills your Character is able to learn. When picking a class, you can also often pick a weapon. It's advisable to check the class aptitude list before choosing one, to see which is the best for the species you are using. Starting ClassesThe following classes are available from the start. Mage: A class that can use a variety of different types of magic. Mage skills that can be learned depend on the species' type(s). Fighter: A class that uses physical attacks and close-quarters weapons. Tamer: A class that excels at befriending and taming creatures. Can use any befriended
