General Questions

What is an 'Isomara'?
An Isomara, or for short Iso, are semi-aquatic mammals with huge paws and manes. They are often classified as dragons. They have feathered wings and large rounded canine teeth. To learn about the species, check out this journal.
Isomara are a closed species founded by SlayersStronghold 

How much would an Isomara cost, and how do I get one?
Isomara can be acquired many different ways this is covered in our Beginner's Guide: Getting Started. Prices range based on design and traits.

What's an ARPG?
An ARPG or Art Role Playing Game in this sense is an art driven game where you can fulfill prompts, events, and other activities while owning an original species and taking care of them as if they were real. In a sense by completing prompts ands games you develop your character.

Do I have to participate in the ARPG if I own an Isomara?
No, you don't even have to be in the group if you own one, it's all purely optional, and if you do happen to want to participate in the group you can at any time! The group also functions as an average closed species group, so feel free to submit any art or literature you make that contains any Isomara or other Island Inhabitants.

How do I breed my Isomara?
Read the journal Isomara Courtship it will give in-depth how to Isomara can produce young in the game.

What are Seashells?
They are the In-game Currency used for most in group transactions within Isomara-Island

I'm more of a author than a visual artist does this group support literature?
Yes, Isomara-Island does support written works. All activities and events have alternate writing criteria, so whether someone wants to draw or write is up to them. We also have a roleplay website designed for the collaborations and solo stories (Keep in mind this website it outdated and clunky, we hope in the future to bring forth a better RP option to our community if they would like to publicly collaborate and write stories for this ARPG).

How do I transfer ownership of an Isomara, Isoling, Egg, and/or Companion species?
We would prefer all transfers be through the Update thread on character official import ID. You can find this by going to IsomaraIndex > find your character > scroll down to comments > locate the "UPDATES" thread > then comment saying you'd like to transfer ownership to -insert new owner's username-.

I am earning items, but how do I see all items I own?
All member inventories can be found here. Members are listed in alphabetical order by their DeviantArt username. There are tabs 

Where can I go to remove all items from my inventory?

If you want to remove all items from your inventory or even some please go to Darwin's Delivery Service. There you can transfer items and currency. 


Design Questions

Can Isomara wear clothing?
Yes, although they are not materialistic by nature, Isomara may wear accessories and clothes if they craft their own. You are still allowed to draw clothes and accessories on your characters, but they will not be considered canon for the group unless it states the item on the official ID. You can create clothes and accessories at Carmen's Fabrication Station.

Can I change my Isomara's design?
Redesigning Isomaras and other companions are very limited. We have some items such as Shears and Eyedrops which can be used on Isomara. We are working on granting players more freedom when it comes to color and design alteration, but for now you may draw your characters so they may be simpler/ easier for you to draw, but don't stray too far from the original reference. Hairstyle changes are always allowed feel free to braid their hair, mane and add ponytails and small basic clips. Trait changed are not allowed unless an item has been used or an event/activity grants you the ability to change your character's traits.

I made a MYO design and don't like it can I redesign it?
If you received a MYO slot and made an Isomara you are allowed one free redesign of it, but it must be approved by IsomaraIndex. For more information read over the Redesigning Your MYO Isomara journal.

What part of an Isomara needs to be White?
An Isomara's claws, teeth, mane, horns, inside ear fluff, wings, and underside of tails need to be white (long tails need to be near fully white). There is a Special Trait called Dyed Whites which allows the whites of an Isomara to be colored from birth or earned through being exiled. For more explanations and examples read the info card here- Mandatory Whites
Oh, look a grasshopper, I wonder if this has to do with the Prompt Pavilion? 

Basic F.A.Q.

What are MYO's?
Make-Your-Own or MYO is a way for you to make your own design of a species. You can't make MYOs of closed species unless you have permission. You have to draw the design.

What is a DTA?
A DTA or Draw-to-Adopt is an alternate way to adopt a design. Instead of paying money you draw for a chance to adopt it. Out of all the entries, submitted SlayersStronghold will pick one person and they will win the design. At times, there will runner up prizes such as other designs and MYO slots.

when importing an official adopt, what goes in the “Import Link“ section?

if it’s a finished image of the adopt on the official template background, is there a smaller file that I can use to do this? The current one provided is too large for my mobile device to open so I’m unable to use it if that’s what I need to do
