About the Esk Masterlist

Welcome to the official Masterlist for the esk species!
This Masterlist catalogs all esk characters with information about their design, ownership history, and rarity. This account is managed by the ThoseWhoWentMissing staff, if you are an esk owner you do not have to do anything to get your character in the list after your MYO has been approved, premade has been purchased, or custom has been completed.

Spirit Renewal - Update your masterlist image!

Update your character's masterlist artwork!
Visit the Spirit Renewal page to update your character's artwork to reflect traits and modifications earned in the game. You may also revise the artwork for aesthetic reasons whether you participate in the ARPG or not. Masterlist updates do not cost anything and can be done once a month. All you need to do is comment on the Spirit Renewal page with a link to your tracker and an updated image for the masterlist entry.

Official TWWM achievement badges

Here are all of the official TWWM achievement badges.
This is a guide to the badges' meanings, you can only place these in your profiles and trackers if you receive them from TWWM staff!

Creator Badge

This badge is distributed to players and characters that perform Transformations to generate MYOs. This badge is only given for creating new MYOs, it is not given to players/characters that are used as esk creators in backstories without using up a TF slot.
This badge helps mark how many TF slots you have used, so it is very important to include it in your Player Profile.

Featured Artist Badge

This badge is distributed to players that have been chosen as a monthly featured artist. You can only use this badge in your profile if you receive it directly from TWWM staff!

Featured Character Badge

This badge is distributed to players that have had one of their esk characters chosen as a monthly featured character. You can only use this badge in your profile and in that character's tracker if you receive it directly from TWWM staff!

TWWM Admin Badge

Only TWWM staff are allowed to use this badge. If you see it in someone's profile that means they are here to help you with the game!

Event badges are distributed to all participants at the event's closing, you can see past event badges in the Official TWWM Badge folder.

How to use the Masterlist

Each Masterlist entry has four comment threads that are used to manage the character.

Sprite Rip: Twig by a-good-boyBiome Sprite Rip: Twig by a-good-boy
In order to use your esk character in the ARPG you must assign it to a Biome by visiting the Biome Sign-ups page.

Once your Biome request is confirmed, a staff member will place an official Biome badge into your esk's masterlist entry by replying to this comment thread. Only TWWM staff members are to use this comment thread.

You will also need to place the appropriate Biome badge into your esk's Character Tracker in order to start accumulating Growth Points in the ARPG.

Biomes are permanent — once a character is signed up for a Biome it cannot be changed.

Sprite Rip: Twig by a-good-boyRewards Sprite Rip: Twig by a-good-boy
Reply to this thread any time you purchase traits or mods for your esk in the Energy Exchange or receive a crystal reward for completing a Transformation.

Staff members may also use this thread to record special achievements for the character earned in the ARPG.

Sprite Rip: Twig by a-good-boyOwnership Transfer Sprite Rip: Twig by a-good-boy
Please read the ownership transfer rules first!
TWWM Group Rules [sensitive material revised]
Group Rules
Participation in the ThoseWhoWentMissing game requires that you agree to these rules, if you violate these rules you may have certain permissions revoked and you could be blocked from esk ownership or future events and activities. Multiple offenses can lead to being banned from all participation in the game. These rules are in place in order to make the game structure function properly, if you have a question or concern about the rules you may send in a group note or contact witherlings directly.

Ownership transfer includes gifting, selling, swapping for other esk characters, or trading for non-esk characters or assets. If your ownership of an esk is marked as not finalized (incomplete payment) you are not allowed to transfer ownership to another player, ownership must be finalized before permissions can be changed. You cannot do ownership transfers before an esk's masterlist entry has been created or if your name is not listed as the current owner.

Only the former owner can reply to this thread to update ownership, and they must include a tag of the new owner in their comment.

Masterlist entries must be created and have your name listed as the current owner before you may use the character in the ThoseWhoWentMissing ARPG.

Sprite Rip: Twig by a-good-boyTracking Journal Sprite Rip: Twig by a-good-boy
Reply to this comment with a link to your Character Tracker for the ARPG. If you need help creating a tracker please read the TWWM Newcomers Guide.

Character Trackers are used to log your esk's Growth Points (GP) in the ARPG. GP is non-transferable — it cannot be given to other characters and an esk retains its GP balance during ownership transfers (it does not reset). If you are changing ownership of an esk we recommend providing the new owner with your GP log so they have an accurate record of their past GP.

Once a Character Tracker is no longer in use you may hide the comment or have a staff member hide it for you.

We also have the Masterlist instructions in a simple journal entry with a white background.

How do I get an esk?
WeeverWolf Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2018   Digital Artist
Hi there! I just noticed that the collection on 1499 is mistakenly marked as MYO. Thank you!

Updated, thank you!

Wasn't sure where I should put this, but I believe my new greenhouse esk 1466 was mis-identified as an abnormal, and probably should be changed <33

hello i ready the newcomers guide but am still just a little confused on how to get a myo slot after i get 100 Ap 
leafshadow04 Featured By Owner Edited Jul 8, 2018  Student General Artist
Hello, I am not TWWM staff, but you can get your first free MYO from the nursery! 
Nursery - Forest Stream
The Nursery is your source for free esk MYOs. Players that have never owned an esk before and have reached the Seed level by earning 100AP or more have access to this feature and are able to claim a single starter MYO to use in the game.
There is no set schedule for Nursery updates. Each update will be at a different time of day to accommodate different schedules and time zones. You can expect to see 3-4 Nursery updates per month.
Sprite Rip: Leafy Sprouts Rules for claiming Starter MYOs from the Nursery
Lime Green Dot Bullet - F2U! No editing comments. Edited comments will be skipped over. If you need to revise your claim you need to make a new top level comment! Do not hide your earlier comments.

Remember, this is for first time owners only! Later on you can gain MYOs from the Wellsprings, if you wish, through transformations, or through Greenhouse story MYOs!

Greenhouse - Supermoon claims closed!

The Greenhouse is your source for Story MYOs.
Story MYOs are a new way to make new esk characters without using Transformations. They come with some established backstory and role in the esk lore which players are encouraged to explore and expand upon using these characters. Story MYOs are available to all players that meet the AP requirements and are not for first-time-owners only. Unlike Starters, Story MYOs can have all kinds of traits and nature features and are not always limited to common traits; each batch is unique and has different guidelines and limitations. These MYOs are for active players who would like to have more context for their characters so they can be more immersed in the esk lore and for those who would enjoy a unique design challenge. If you use a Story MYO in the game, please retain the backstory provided.
   The Wellsprings [small rule change]

There are sites here in the Conservatory that will aid you... go find them, receive their gifts. After all, this place was built for you. Consider these landmarks an offering from those who came before you... and perhaps take them as inspiration for your own goodwill. They are still being crafted all over the Conservatory to this day. You can help them, if you wish, by leaving gifts for others or by being an architect. We must support each other, it's why we are here. We have all lost so much, but we still have so much to give.
Gem Sapphire 

The Wellsprings are important landmarks in the Conservatory that have been built by esk in collaboration with each other. Esk visit these locations and leave what they can and take what they need. Some visitors contribute to their cons
   Transformations [new reward options]

Create a new esk
Each Transformation acts as one MYO slot that allow you to design a new character. These slots do not cost real money to use but have in-game costs and restrictions. Transformations you unlock can only be used by esk you currently own, Slots cannot be given to other players to redeem with their esk; you must have one of your own characters perform your Transformations. You are required to familiarize yourself with the esk species guide before creating new esk.
earning Transformations | determining the biome and boundary | gifting and swapping Transformations
normal Transformations | Transformation tiers | Abnormal Transformations

Another limited way to get an MYO is winning it as a prize from events!
