FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions

Below we have listed questions that are asked most frequently by players, we decided to create a journal for other members who are curious about the very same things. Feel free to ask us any questions you have, even if the answer is below.


QUICK TIP** If you're here for something specific, press the 'Ctrl-F' keys and search for a keyword in the journal. For example if you're searching for something that involves the Market you would type in Market.


If you're having any issues in-game/in general please send us a note directly to the group.

Q: How do I buy things from the Village Market?

A: Each month Felvargs will create a fresh journal for certain areas of the group, to purchase items for example, you would redirect to the group's Cache journal (the bank). You can locate these monthly journals by heading over to the front page and using the buttons located on the left side of the page.

Q: How do I get my own Felvarg?

A: New to the group? Welcome! We suggest taking a peek at the group's welcome guide. Guide: Getting Started

Q: Will I lose my Felvarg if I'm not active?

A: Imagine how sad that would be? Felvargs has no activity restrictions and unless you directly sell or trade away your furry friend, it will remain in your ownership always. Take a two year vacation, your Felvarg might eat you when you return but hey at least it'll be here?

Q: How do I open a bank account and view my items?

A: The Cache link is always located in the monthly Cache journals, but if you want to save the link to the bank directly here it is. Felvargs Official Cache
To create a bank make your way to the monthly 'Cache' journal and the journal will walk you through creating your very own Cache.

Q: How do I get my Felvarg designed?

A: If you're designing a Felvarg that should mean you have a Genotype, this Genotype tells a story, we will link some resources below to walk you through creating your very own Felvarg.
Design Nook > Guide: What is a Genotype/Lineage?

Q: Do Felvargs age and die?

A: Felvargs are born from the great god Fenrir himself, forged by his power they do not age and die. However they can indeed die by the hand of something else, this just means they do not die of old age.

Q: I want to create my own pack, but how?

Q: Can Felvargs be co-owned?

A: While it is not against the rules to co-own a Felvarg with another member, we want to urge you to be certain you have things under control. Felvargs will consider both accounts as the 'main' owner and will not second guess any decisions made by either player. With this being said we will not reverse any transactions or relieve any issues from a co-own gone wrong, it is your choice entirely if you want to take the risk.

Q: What are the submission limits for activities?

A: You can submit up to 2 different activities for each main activity there is, in any 24 hour period.(2 Fishing/2 Tracking/2 Adventure/etc.) Don't worry about going over the limit, the group will tell you if you need to wait to submit more. Using side accounts to abuse the above limit, or having your friends submit them for you is not permitted.

Q: How many times can I cycle advertisements?

A: We ask you only bump your thread once every 24 hour period, if its slightly before this time we will allow it. Abusing the grace period to submit hours and hours early will get you suspended from the folder for a few days, it's meant to be a courtesy to players who may need to bump 30 minutes early because they have things to tend to elsewhere.

Q: How many Felvargs can I include in a single activity image?

A: You may include up to 3 Felvargs in the same activity image to receive rewards and EXP.

Q: Can I upload my Felvarg on toyhou.se (other websites) as a character?

A: Yes, provided the image you use as a reference sheet is not the official import image.

Q: What are reference sheets and what are their regulations?

A: Reference sheets are entirely optional, their purpose is to act as a reference sheet for both sides of your Felvarg, primarily the side that the official import image shields.

Q: Are we allowed to draw AU's of our Felvargs and can we submit them to the group?

A: You’re more than welcome to draw AU’s of your Felvargs and they can be submitted to the miscellaneous folder in the Felvargs gallery.

Q: What is a bank account (village cache) and what is it used for? And why?

A: A village cache is the Felvarg’s version of a bank account. Each member gets one to keep track of their items. Village caches are per member, not per Felvarg and anything in a member’s village cache can be applied to any of their Felvargs.

Q: When I leave Felvargs can I make my Felvarg into a normal wolf OC?

A: You can indeed make your Felvarg a normal wolf character, however in doing so you cannot call it a Felvarg or use the groups official import artwork.

Q: Is NSFW artwork allowed in the group?

A: Yes, the group allows NSFW creations in the group but the creations must abide Deviantart's mature filter rules as well as have a mature filter warning applied.

Q: Can my Felvarg be any sexuality? What is the lore's standpoint on this?

A: Yes, you are free to make your Felvarg be any sexuality you’d like. The lore does not have a standpoint on different sexualities.

Q: Can a Felvarg get sick? What are common health problems?

A: Yes, like any other type of animal, Felvargs can get sick or injured. While there aren’t any established common health problems, they can have issues such as obesity, blindness, lost limbs, etc.

Q: Can I sell my Felvarg for more than I got it for?

A: Yes. While we recommend members do not purchase things from sales simply to profit from them, this is something we cannot police. Selling a genotype from a sale would need to be sold for the original price purchased. Adoption center genotypes cannot be sold at any point, they can however be traded or gifted away but only after they have been designed and uploaded.

Q: Can someone else design my geno?

A: Absolutely, you can find someone offering their design services in the Design Commissions gallery folder as well as comment in the adoption center comment thread where any member or admin can choose to design your geno for you.

Q: Where can I check the possible offspring of two Felvargs?

A: The lineage checker is the perfect place to check for possible offspring of two Felvargs. After checking for offspring, you can proceed to the breeding roller.

Q: Is there a limit to breeding?

A: Yes, there is a monthly breeding limit of 3 breedings per member. Each Felvarg does not have a monthly breeding limit though and can breed as many times per month as you’d like, so long as they have breeding slots available.

Q: Is there a certain time I have to wait to breed?

A: No, as long as your Felvarg has passed their Passage of Courtship then they may be bred whenever you’d like.

Q: What are the age milestones for Felvargs?

A: The first year of a Felvarg’s life is considered to be an infant and are entirely dependent on their mother. From a year to five years of age, they are considered juveniles and will learn valuable skills that will help them survive in the wild. From the ages of five to ten years of age, they are considered adolescence. It is during this time that they will reach sexual maturity. You can learn more about the age milestones of Felvargs in the Species Information journal.

Q: Can I sell in game items?

A: Yes, you are free to sell and purchase in game items from other members at your own risk. Felvargs will not be responsible for any sales that may not go through correctly or if any issues arise during such sales.

Q: Can I collaborate on activities, Passage of Courtships, etc.?

A: Yes, you are more than welcome to collaborate on any group activities unless otherwise stated.

Q: How do I get rid of an unwanted Felvarg?

A: You can gift/sell or even trade away unwanted Felvargs, members can also drop unwanted pups off in the adoption center in exchange for Felcredits.

Q: What benefits do packs have?

A: There are a number of benefits a pack can have depending on how many pack points (pp) the pack has earned. These benefits include a +2 EXP bonus for images that include two or more pack members in them, increased odds in activities and breedings, as well as the chance to claim a territory in Ulfrheim where your pack will reign supreme.

Q: Where do I buy items for my Felvargs?

A: Items can be purchased from the Village Market. Members can do so by commenting in the groups monthly Cache journal.

Q: How do I earn Felcredits?

A: Felcredits are earned mainly by participating in activities such as adventuring, fishing, tracking, mountaineering, and other group activities. After completing an activity image, your image will receive an activity roll based on the specific activity you completed. While some items may result in a reward, most can be redeemed for Felcredits.

Q: Can we lease other peoples' Felvargs?

A: No, Felvargs does not allow characters to be leased. Members can make private deals with other members in return for rewards located but official admins of the group will only post rewards to the official owner of the Felvarg in question.

Q: Can I commission group activities, Passage of Courtship entries or otherwise other group images from other people/other players?

A: Yes. There is no rule against paying other artists to draw your Felvargs in any setting.

Q: Can I redesign my Felvarg if the design is old or I don't like it anymore?

A: Yes, in order to redesign a Felvarg, you must first purchase a Makeover Kit from the Village Market. That allows you to redesign a Felvarg entirely from scratch. This action cannot be undone and so members should be 100% positive they want to wipe the Felvargs slate clean. (Everything on the Felvarg will be reset EXCEPT breeding slots used, these bind to an import number and cannot be reset.)

Q: How do you get the best results in Passage of Courtship (PoC's)?

A: In order to get the best results in the Passage of Courtship trials, there are two bonuses you can apply to your entries that will up the chances of you getting a higher medal. There is the stand alone bonus which is when only one Felvarg is depicted in the Passage of Courtship entries rather than two. There can also be a bonus image/literature (colored sketch at minimum or 500+ word story) added to each Passage of Courtship entry for a total of two bonus images. These bonuses give you the best chance at getting a gold medal in your PoC’s.

Q: Can I include other ARPG species in my pictures?

A: Yes. This is something the group allows however it should only be Felvargs in an image that is considered an event. (Quest, Events, Seasonal.)

Q: Can I do simplified/pixel/palette pictures as activities or PoC's?

A: Yes, so long as the image meets the requirements of the activity or Passage of Courtship.

Q: What animals are available as prey in tracking?

A: The list of prey animals that are available as prey in tracking can be found in the Bartering Post Master List. There you can find both large and small prey animals that are commonly found during tracking.

Q: Can I get an empty litter in breeding?

A: No, each litter bred will include 1-4 offspring. Applying a stone of unakite will increase the offspring odds to 2-5.

Q: Do some genes give penalties if I breed them? Ex. Merle x Merle

A: No, there currently are no breeding penalties other than inbreeding.

Q: Is there a place where I can ask for help with my design/approval progress?

A: Yes, there is a comment thread in the monthly design approvals journal that allows members to ask questions directly to design nook admins.

Q: Are there livestock type animals living in Ulfrheim? If so, do the Felvargs know how to domesticate them from their time with the humans?

A: The great sickness did not affect livestock and so to date they still live happily on the island. Felvargs are very capable of understanding livestock needs and can easily raise or otherwise care for them with ease.

Hey there! If you go to our front page of the da group and scroll down to Monthly Journals you'll find our caching post, click that link and then scroll down to 'Import Database' then click the link that says 'Import Database Updates'! There you can link your activity tracker and admins can update it to the felvarg website! If you have trouble finding it you can just tap Crtl+F and type in any of the provided names for easy finding, or if your a mac user click Cmd+F! If you have any other questions please feel free to note me or the group!

Question about submitting for the quest. I have a picture that contains mild violence and gore, I will mark it as mature content but can I also have a story written in the artist comments that contains violence and gore if I add a warning before the story? Or will I have to submit it as a mature content literature separate to the picture?
Reply

Katakire Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2019  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, we do allow violence and gore so long as it is properly labeled with the mature content feature and that you label the literature.

The question-asker returns! I can't seem to find a solid yes/no on this one.
The text in the journals lean toward no, but I've seen people doing this.

Would it be okay to use the imports to create an 'unofficial'(not linked on the import) reference?
Mostly for a Felvarg's 'other side' or various outfits that aren't wanted on the import itself; posted in their tracker.
Credit and Signatures remaining on the image and in the description, uploaded to stash or scraps.


Also, I can't find the rules about reference sheets anywhere, I could've sworn there was a journal for it but I can't find it ^^'

Hey there, you can flip the lineart and use it as a reference but you are not allowed to upload it. It must remain in your sta.sh but you could link it through the profile of your felvarg using the profile updates thread found in the Cashing post!

(Posted somewhere else but I think this is a good place to ask too) 

Is there a way I can change a geno I got from the AC? Sorry if it's already stated, but I was curious if I could go and check if I could change a geno I'm having problems with. It's pretty simple but I'm having trouble with the pallette, even with the markings already done. I do have other two felvargs already uploaded, but I adopted that geno before I got those two.

Thanks.

:iconkatakire:
Katakire Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2019  Professional Digital Artist
The only way to change genos is by using items such as Tigers eyes:"swap out 1 common/uncommon marking on a genotype for another marking of the same rarity." If you mean to completely swap out an entire geno for another, unfortunately there is no way to do that. If you want, you can post in advertisements to see if someone is willing to trade genos.

I rather meant if I could put that geno back on the AC and take another one, but I already got an answer from the other place. Thanks

Hi! I had a quick question. I submitted this image (2) on my ARPG acc a few days ago for the thanksgiving event. My second image submitted was rolled, but this one (I submitted this image before the rolled one) was silently removed from the folder and wasn't rolled. Was this an error or was it rejected for some reason? If it was rejected, I'd like to know what I should fix before resubmitting ;;

Hello, I have two probably rather stupid questions, I tried to find answers myself but couldn't find info on it

What exactly are the 'Halloween Items' the 'Witch Hat' is referring to?

What can we use candies for? It only states they're a currency but for what exactly?
;w;

sorry for bothering, I'm just so very new and I always have so many questions because I wanna understand everything right ;o;

I really friggin love this group, my favourite ARPG I've seen so far!

Sukkol Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2018  Student Digital Artist
No question is stupid, these are very good questions! We will answer any and all :heart: 

Halloween items are seasonal items that a player can find during the halloween event, and then sell if the like. We suggest holding onto them though, as they can be used in the black market at random! The witch hat is an accessory that the group provides if a player finds all types of pumpkins, which you can find during the halloween event.
Candies are found during the halloween event (or during trick or treat an admin), and are used to buy things in the Halloween shop. The event has ended, but you can take a peek here at how it worked: Varg O' Ween - Hollows Eve (ENDED)

Even if an event ends, you can still purchase from the shop, so long as you have the currency (which is candies in this case). If you have anymore questions, please feel free to ask. We love to help.

Hello! Just two questions regarding Varg O'ween.

1. What would happen if there's still a roaming varg after halloween has ended? Would they be raffled off, start roaming like normal wilds, disappear entirely, or would the event keep going until they were tamed?
2. Can Hel's Spellbook actually be given to Hel for rewards, or is it just an item description? If the former is true, where can we give it to her?

What is Jorm Lore? and how does it affect a geno that is eligible for it? or what can you do with it?
Reply

MrsEvelyn Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hey there! We were just about to add this to our FAQ, so thank you so much for asking. :heart:

The Island of Jormundangr is still a bit of a work in progress, as it is our end game content. A good part of the lore to read is located on this journal here: Event: Jormungandr's Rise

Having Jorm alpha's in your lineage unlock the ability to play a human-turned Felvarg. Humans died off long ago, or so it was thought, until the curse stuck the remaining humans in Loki's army into the body of a Felvarg, making them suffer the same curse as their leader. So if you have a "tier three" alpha in your linage, all located here: Official Group Alphas: Starters, you can then create this as part of your Felvarg's story.

We do not allow any human drawings/lit entries for official images like PoCs, HUs, Quests and the like, any of the core, lore related activities. So this is just a little bit of story that you can then include. It doesn't unlock in game items or anything of that sort.
