Ambaran FAQ

Fri Apr 6, 2018, 7:51 AM

General Questions

What do you mean by open species?
You can create your own OC (Ambrivan, Seresan, or Haaloman) with any traits for free - as many as you want. You still must credit me, iLantiis, for the species as they are still my original species, but you get to make your own MYOs anytime you choose. Read ALL the rules here: TOS: Ambrivans, Haalomans, Seresans, and Pets

How do I become a breeder?
Since we are now an open species, EVERYONE is a breeder!

What's the deal with the Ambri Shop?
The Ambri Shop has sadly closed its doors as its primary function was to let you customize your OCs. But now you can do that for free!

What constitutes an "Ambaran OC?"
An Ambrivan, Seresan, or Haaloman of any age is an Ambaran OC. Pets do not count as an OC tho you can make them for your OCs.

What kind of society do they live in?
Ambrivans live in a modern society with magic and technology mingled together. They have all the creature comforts, modern housing, shopping, a killer fashion industry, etc.

Seresans live in a medieval society that is riddle with infighting and constant power struggles. They are nomadic warriors and do not have nor use technology (even if gifted to them).

Haalomans live in a renaissance style society filled with progressive invention, artistry, and a bit of flamboyant and carefree living. Haalomans are fun and love to learn and have fun (they can use technology if an Ambrivan gives it to them).

About the lands and civilizations of Ambaran

Is the water really yellow on the mainland?
Yes, the water on the mainland is sulpheric and does smell slightly of rotten eggs. This is because the base of the mainland is volcanic. Ambrivans and other species on the mainland that need fresh water to drink must boil the water or purchase already prepared water from a store. The "fresh water" on the mainland is safe to swim in but if too much is drank without being purified, one can become ill. No, the lakes and rivers are not warm or hot like hot springs.

How often do eruptions happen on this volcanic mainland?
Not often. One hasn't happened in over 100 years tho smoke does billow out of the mountaintops occasionally and sometimes the odd magma rock will be ejected into the skies (watch out below!).

There is a dragon on the map. Is there really a dragon in the skies?
Yes, there is. A couple actually. Be careful with your Haalomans XD

I can't find a city I want my OC to live in. Can I make one up?
You can. Just be aware that for it to be canon, more than you has to be there, and it must be mentioned in the RP on Discord.

Can my OC live in a castle?
I don't know, can they? Haha of course! If you have a story showing they can afford one, go for it! They can't be "royalty" though. If you want a royal or imperial OC, you must note the group.

Do Ambaran OCs wear jewelry?
Yes they sure do! They can wear anything we can wear and anything you can think up! Get creative!

Can the species intermingle?
YES! Ambrivans can meet both Seresans and Haalomans though Seresans and Haalomans DO NOT get along so should not be put in a situation where they would meet. There is no crossbreeding tho. Sometimes love affairs can happen, but due to how each species reproduces and mates, the romantic relationship is mostly emotional and not completely physical.

Species Anatomy and Physiology

Do Ambrivans have hair on their bodies (besides their head)?
Yes, they have fine hairs that grow between small scales on their skin. The scales and skin itself is a matte gray color while the fine hairs that grow are a rainbow of colors and a vast array of patterns. The hair feels silky smooth and dries very quickly when wet. It does not do much for keeping warm.

Do Haalomans have feathers covering their bodies?
No. The only feathers they have are the ones on their trait sheet plus around their neck. Like Ambrivans, they have fine hairs that grow up between small scales on their skin. The scales and skin are a matte gray in color but the fine hair that grows can be any color of the rainbow in any pattern.

Do Seresans have body hair like Ambrivans?
No, they have scales on their skin which are much larger and harder than what Ambrivans and Haalomans have and come in different colors besides the matte gray of Ambrivans and Seresans.

Do Ambrivans have pointy teeth?
All the species (Ambrivans, Seresans, Haalomans) have pointy teeth. The only ones with fangs, however, are Seresans.

How big are Ambrivan feet?
Think of the paw on an animal. They basically walk on their toes as their feet are rather small. They compensate for balance with their tail.

Are the ram horns in front of or behind their ears?
Either - and it is more an ear choice than a horn choice. You see, it is a matter of comfort for each individual Ambrivan where they put their ears... So, however your Ambrivan wants to do their ears (in front of or behind their ram horns), is fine with me.

About the Ambaran RP

Where is the RP located?
The RP is located in our discord. You must be the owner of at least one Ambaran OC to participate. You cannot play two OCs at a time.

What can we do in the NSFW RP?
Well, all the stuff you can't do in the general RP lol. NOW, there are some exceptions: if it is getting too steamy or fluffed up in extensive blood and gore, a mod will ask you to take it to private messages. Also, NSFW events are not ever canon.

How does an RP event become canon?
The thread must close and not be NSFW for it to be considered for canon status. Admins will come together on such threads and discuss the possibilities of adding canon status to a series of events. The only other way to gain canon status is to be a sanctioned event for the RP, and at its close, all the goings-ons within will become canon. It is important to note that sanctioned events are never NSFW.
