Current Monthly Challenge

Depict your stryx's attempt to survive on this deserted tropical island. What do they do first? Do they build a shelter? Start a fire? Perhaps they gather tropical fruits from the jungle or try to fish in the sea's turquoise waters. Or perhaps they simply collect tropical flowers and relax on the beach, unaware of their grim situation, or carve some eyes and a beak into a coconut to keep the loneliness away.

Fullbody of your stryx, colored or shaded with a background
800 words minimum for literature
Rider optional

Entry must be completed within the month of July 2022.
You may only claim these rewards ONCE!

||  Post your entries on and submit via the ARPG queue button on your artwork's page!  ||


Stay tuned!

Hello! I am an old player and I was wondering if you can still play DracoStryx via DeviantArt? If not, is there any other ways of playing without a PaperDemon account? I find that website extremely confusing to navigate and the design is very unforgiving to new users. I lost quite a handful of rank and import changes and design approval requests after trying to make heads and tails of PaperDemon. Please, I would much rather enjoy the classic way of playing the game here on DeviantArt.

Unfortunately due to changes to Deviantart, admining regular gameplay here has become time-consuming and difficult. Running the game on two parallel sites would also divide and stretch the admin's ability to run Stryx well. We cannot offer gameplay through Deviantart anymore.
We also have a Discord! It's great for asking questions, and questions are more likely to be seen there.

Hello! We are currently a fairly small group running this group and sometimes real life things get in the way. Nothings been forgotten though, our design team has just been busy and hasn't had a chance to go through the queues.
