News and Announcements

Fri Mar 8, 2019, 10:56 AM by Unikeko:iconunikeko:

Small but important changes all around the group, and Kiwi's slots are raffled!
I hope you all are sitting, because I bring you a bunch of important smol things we've cooked all around the group! Most of them have already been updated, but couple had to wait news to be released.

Hunting season has been changed to spring! Remember to check which animals are more active when nature wakes up to maximize the loot!

Two FP clarifications has been added to Fate Points and Skill Points. Kiwi's bonus has been added there to be more clear and bonding gives now FP bonus as well!

We all know how hard it is to get angelberry leaves... and even more hard is to use them to something else than Safe nest potion! So we changed Crafting recipe of medicine! Now instead of angelberry leaf you need grumberry if you want to craft some tasty meds for your kukuris.

After discussions, we have decided to ease a little the bitter feelings peeps might be having if they find out that kukuri has become infertile in breeding, before they could use the slots. So we are honoring all those slots! You can use a breeding slot if the permission has been written before the kukuri has become infertile! However, the owner of said kukuri can't use it, or take part of the breeding. It's still a punishment from overbreeding. But in case you've bought a slot to the kukuri and got nothing in return, this is our little way to give something back for you.

Our little lovely mascot Kiwi 100 has leveled up again! And this time the breeding rights landed on xXCheshireSinXx and fine-spine ~ Next rank also gives out two slots, so keep leveling her up! Keep in mind though that even if Kiwi can be included into activities, the artwork taking part to raffle must be in Kiwi's journey folder, and in that folder only. We noticed couple entries that have been rolled for monthly reward, and even if the entry don't have to be in Monthly Quest folder, it can't be used in two purpose. This is to prevent possible abuse with multiple loots. All pictures found in wrong folder are noticed and returned to their right place.

Long winter is behind us finally! March is known as month of spring here in cold Finland, but hopefully the marks of nature waking up are visible all around the world~ Still, remember to suit yourself for winter surprising us!


Juliet gone - slots raffled, Kukuri of the Month winner, New monthly
Henlo, it me again!

Monthly Quest has changed! This months reward is pretty Background Set - The Cherry Blossoms, painted by GinSasori! Hop in to the Monthly quest journal to read more.
    > Lucky bounce and automatic reward explanations have been added to the Monthly quest page.

Since monthly quest changed, Juliet 7125 has mysteriously disappeared.... Let's wish her good luck finding her Romeo!
    >Since our questing admins have been working hard, we were already able to roll the Juliet slot winners - Congratulations TwoTassel Meow-Productions WickedSoull Nerryn and JoTehBunny! Your slots have been written and you should receive tag for them. 

Kukuri of the Month March 2019 is Ukko 5694, owned by RoutArt! Congratulations! Voting for Kukuri of the month - April 2019 has started~

Don't forget our Kukuri group chat! (Discord)! Hop in to discuss with fellow kuku members /o/

Few marking updates, kuku ownership transfer talk, Zada leaving team, looking for admins, threads closing soon, Juliet slots
Hello everyone! We're terribly sorry for the long silence - things been busy. Let's hop right to the update:heart:

Design central:
    > Just small update on Dalmatian, which now has a handy minimal / maximum size example made by lilwyverngirl 
    > Smoke got revamped on prairies and their feathers. This will now hopefully be easier to understand and judge for both users and design admins. For people wishing to fix their existing prairies to fit the new ranges, they can simply use alteration scroll! We however allow the old style smoke be used until end of February! After that, only new ranges are allowed.

When selling your imported kukuri to other member - remove personality/name before you change the ownership. Ownership transfers are ment only for transferring kukuri ownership, thus name/personality removals won't be done. This is the best way to guarantee the info change, as once the ownership has been changed, previous owner doesn't have any rights over the kukuri. 

On sadder news, Zada2011 has left the admin team due not having time for admin work. Let's all give them warm thank you for all the help they have given us! 

As our group grows, we need more hands to help us to keep group running. We are still accepting applications for misc admin spot, but now also second jack of all trades spot is open! Head to The admin team (and applications) read more!

Kukuri of the MonthMonthly Quest and Breeding will be closed for the month on 27th of February, 7PM GMT. Remember to vote for the kukuri of the month, and drop your entries for monthly quest for chance of adorable Chinchilling! Not to forget breeding. This is such short month. 

About Juliet slots - apologies for the wait everyone. Unikeko got whisked to magical trip and her catbus got sick and needs doctor, so she can't process any slot payments right now. They'll be processed as soon as she gets home! Thank you for your patience meanwhile ; _ ; / 
    > SLOTS FOR JULIET (February only)

New starter for February, new monthly quest and import update got an update!
You all have been waiting for her since we announced that Romeo would be taking this year off. He has ventured to somewhere far, but his replacement has arrived in time! Juliet 7125 is beautiful dove with unique chimera-related trait that should make your socks roll in your feet! 

During all February you can purchase SLOTS FOR JULIET, before she'll go away looking for her love again! She has inheritable chimera mutation, but unfortunately rejects all chimeras in breeding.

She'll also be the star of our new Monthly Quest, where you have 20% chance of finding new familiar Chinchilling - as a bonus, we'll be raffling out 5 slots for Juliet between all peeps participating to the monthly! You can only get one ticket per user, so there's no need to draw more than one entry if you don't have time for more~
Lastly, Import Updates has been split into two different threads to ease the work and wait! Now you can get text edited in one comment chain, while other is used mainly on adding items to the kukuri's picture. It is a great system!

Our recent poll raffle winners have been chosen and rewarded! Kukuri of the Month has been opened for voting again!

I'm very excited to hear what you think about our new lady! Please remember to treat your family and friends during this month of love~

Reminders from various thingies, some design details have been clarified, healing thread customization and many more!
Hello there, all adventurous kukuri peeps! I'll yet again bring you a bunch of reminders and couple tiny but important updates!

First of all, if you yet haven't claimed your prices from Carnival of Life 2018, it's very soon too late! Price claiming will be closed on last day of January!
With same relation, BreedingMonthly Quest and Kukuri of the Month votes are soon closed, more specifically on 30th 9pm Finnish time, which would be 7pm GMT~ Make sure you have everything in, before month changes again!

Heal Kukuri of Injury/Illness got a little chance! Now you must have the cure item in your bank when adding kukuri to the queue, and there is no option for buying the cure item when doing the healing! This makes our banking goblin's job much easier~

Our head design admin also wanted to clarify couple small but important details in designing.
~ Marking with darker / lighter rule has to be visibly darker or lighter. This means the value has to differ at least 5 points from the base color. This also includes markings with multiple values in them. For example: marbled border has to be visibly darker than the dark color filling in the middle. Example
~ Effect called fringe (in paint tool sai) can not be used on markings to create a border. (exception being Marble if the effect is used for creating border for marble. Example

Last but not least, our lovely mascot Kiwi 100 - if you draw her in any situation, you are only able to take part of the raffle for her slots if the picture is submitted to her own folder in the group! This means, if you add her to activity roll/monthly quest/event picture you want to use for its original purpose, you are not taking part of the raffle. The picture will still count her for FP though, but it can't be used for loot in two places!

Alright, I think that's all for now~ Winter is gripping tightly from us all, and atleast here we have still snow coming like no end. Beware the slippery weather!

Looking for a new admin, bunch of marking guide updates and some marking changes, the poll familiar raffle deadline

As an admin is taking extended leave, we're looking for a new misc admin! If being an admin has ever tickled your fancy, head to The admin team (and applications) and see what it entails and fill in the form!

The design team has been working hard to try to iron out confusions and general pleasantries of markings, and here are what's up:
  ► Prairie feathers got visual examples for the rules they have had. People seem to be very confused about them, so hopefully these will aid in that!
Likewise in the same page: Regarding same area, Prairie hands and feet are free area same as with common kukuri. They just don't have separated layer - this information has been added.
  ► Haze got velvet/ebon sliders added. Also confirmation that this marking HAS TO affects all free areas on kukuri. Ears, horns, hands, nails and prairie feathers.
  ► "Iridescent can appear on the horns and ears even if the marking itself is not near them as long as it follows the marking rules! " This has been allowed always but we forgot to add it in the guide initially.
  ► Blindness page now has visual examples of blind kukuris eyes
And for actually big change in a marking;
  ► Siamese got washed out of mandatory minimum amounts on limbs. Only thing needed for this marking to pass up is mask. However, if the mask is hidden (by for example hood), it has to show in limbs, so keep an eye for that!

Lastly, the date for the poll raffle to end is 31.1.2019 9PM GMT - sorry I forgot to put it in earlier!

Hope your year has started pleasantly without Life testing you out too hard!

New status update journal, Design approval reminder, Backlogs blabla, Claim your CoL rewards
Status updates has now new journal for posting status and skill point updates. The old journal reached over 10.000 comments without us noticing, so the nesting has been broken. This may cause some rank proof links being lost in the black hole. We're terribly sorry for this happening.
We will go through the already posted Status update requests on the old thread, but Skill point thread is beyond saving. So if you remember posting skill point update request and it wasn't handled, please re-post the request to new journal.

Design approval reminder. Do not re-post your approval or correction request multiple times. Once you've posted to the comment thread, admin will get to you once they reach you in the queue. Re-posting while waiting the admin comment should not be done before getting actual comment from admin.

We're now slowly getting back from the holidays and back to catching backlogs. In general, we aim to make it so that no-one has to wait more than week/7 days for reply(so when posting request, prepare to wait 1-7 days for reply).
Backlog might happen (especially) on holidays when admins are allowed to rest and spend time with their families/loved ones, or when they've caught flu/fever/other sickness. It's important to remember this is our hobby, not our real job(even though Kukuri being real job would be awesome).
Thank you all for understanding, we're trying to keep the game running as best as we can :heart:

Carnival of Life 2018 reward claiming will close last day of January 2019! Don't forget to claim your loots!


Monthly Quest change, breeding open, Divine shop and Varma claiming ending soon
Monthly Quest has been changed! Jump to the snowy fun with your Kukuris and get a snow coating of your own!

Divine Shop ends at 1.1.2019 9PM GMT, Varma claiming ends tomorrow, Kukuri of the month chosen
Due to being the scatterbrain I am, I never put clear ending date for Divine Shop. SO, I gave it a small extension with a clear date to avoid any mishaps.

Also the holiday Varmas are here for only one more day! If you haven't claimed yours yet, do it soon so you don't miss out!

Kukuri of the Month was chosen! Congratulations O-RainKnight-O who charmed the audience with Bishop 759! Make sure to vote for the next month's Kukuri to give them the spotlight!

Happy new years!

REMINDER: Breeding closing for the month, Vote for Kukuri of the month, Divine shop closing soon and CoL badges have been awarded.
Breeding will close tomorrow (30.12) at 9PM GMT+2, make sure to post your breedings before then! The breeding will be opened again when the remainings breedings have been rolled.

Remember to vote for the Kukuri of the Month! There's certainly someone out there who really could use the moment to stand on the spotlight!

Divine Shop is closing on 31st, but before that there's one more semi-custom auction on 30th! If you've been looking for one, keep your eyes open!

And lastly, all the Carnival of Life badges have been given out! If your Kukuri is still missing one, head off to error reports, and give a link to the kukuri and the event COMMENT showing their participation!

Remember to bundle up for the winter cold! Getting frostbite is no joking manner and can leave permanent damage.

Shroomification arts are here, Divine shop closes on Monday the 31st, CoL Reward claiming reminder
Apparently we are really busy with the updates almost daily during holidays, but I promise we are resting too.

Contamination art is finally up for public upload! Now you can add the contamination to your kukuri when you apply the Contamination potion in import updates.

Divine Shop 2018 will be closing on 31st of December! If you still planned to get something from the shop, you might wanna hurry.

Carnival of Life 2018 reward claiming will close last day of January 2019! We will post another reminder for claiming somewhere in January. Don't forget to claim your loots!

Lore catch up-page and new lore layout, holiday Varmas are up
Happy holidays on actual holiday day (at least here in the cold land of Finland)! As a christmas present we've made lore so far page, where you can catch up on what has happened in the events! Maybe you're an old member who wants to relive a bit of the past, or a new one who has been left in the dark until now. Regardless, it's pretty fun to watch back to! As special celebration for the page, both this and folklore have a special layout skin with the art from GryAdventures, so big thanks to them too!

Also holiday Varmas are here once again! Go claim yours - for free! But they're only there for the new year's, so make sure to claim yours in time!

Again, take care of your safety. It's easy to get carried away in the holiday season, but your safety is more important than appearing cool. And to those not having a pleasant holidays - Stay strong. You are worth it. You are loved. No environment around you changes this fact.

Carnival of Life healing thread closing up, semi-custom flashsale soon
There's only a hour left to post your healings of shroomification to the healing thread of Carnival of Life, and then it will be closed and you cannot heal your Kukuri with an art or literature piece. If you've planned to get your shroomified baby healed, be sure to do it soon!

Likewise within a hour there's another flash sale happening in the Divine Shop 22th of December 7pm EST or midnight GMT. As it turns out I'm very bad at timezones no matter how hard I try, so if the times are confusing you, the first time listed is always right. Apologies for any inconviniences this might have caused.

Keep yourself safe during the holidays! 

Some training and design approval clarification, new things in the Divine shop and happy holidays from the admin team!
Times are starting to get busy in group, as well as in real life, so hear me out! We don't have much time before the year comes to an end. 

First of all, if you're doing Kukuri bonding with two kukuris which belong to different owners, only one of you need to post the entries in training completion! Both kukuris will still get the badge.

If you kukuris needs another side in design approvals, always remember to flip the other side picture so the kukuri is facing opposite direction!

There's something new dropped to the Divine Shop! Looks like a whole bunch of SPECIAL EGGS have been scattered all over again! These are new kinds of eggs and can be purchased even if you've already used your other egg limit!

Last but not least, the whole admin team is taking a break during the holidays! We'll most likely still hover around, but please allow us to have a momentary breathing moment, things might be a little slower because of family visiting and overall holiday hopping! We'll get back soon enough!

Remember to eat a lot of good food, remember your loved ones and spent a wholesome holiday overall!~



Semicustom flashsale soon
Flash sale is starting in 20 minutes at Divine Shop 4pm GMT or 11pm EST! This is fastest gets it, so be ready.


First semi-custom auction going, CoL healing thread deadline
The first Semi-custom auction has started in Divine Shop! Apologies for certain silly founder forgetting that timesaving is a thing that exists and the american times were one hour off, hopefully it is now fixed!

Carnival of Life is closing it's doors, and the healers are slowly leaving the premises. You have now 2 weeks (22.12.2018) to 11PM GMT time to post your healing entries if you wish to get rid of the contamination, after that it must be cured with the antidote and healing entries will not be accepted. Please be sure to post your heals in time!

New bank, Crafting reminder, Celestial rock max 3 eggs, COL rewards claiming open
Hello.... it's  me! Ma-rusti! I'm bringing good news!

Carnival of Life Reward claiming is open
! Read the reward claiming form with time and remember to link the proofs correctly - with that: roll down to the journal and go wild!

We'll have the first semi-custom auction tomorrow! Read more of the time from Divine Shop 2018~

We've had the same bank for a long while, with multiple admins old and new in it. As there was recent mishap of it, we felt it was time to create a new bank doc to make sure there's no-one with access who shouldn't be. The new bank is foundable from The Bank! Sorry for the inconvenience.

Bank goblin has sent me to relay message regarding crafting: When crafting tattered feathers, you can craft them in packs of 5 only. So you can do 5, 10, 15, 20>>, but for example 7 or 11 is not possible.

We also wanted to clear up that Celestial Rock egg maximum is 3. No bonus that enlarges the nest amount from the original amount is applied to celestial rock.
I got feeling I forgot something, even with the reminder list we had prepared Discord Emoji - Thinking If I forgot something, you'll hear of us soon! Until then, stay warm!

Kukuri bonding, monthly quest change, kukuri of the month, extra info on traveling, some link cleaning
Does your Kukuri have a soulmate, someone they always come back to? Well, now you can truly showcase their love with Kukuri bonding! With this special training the pair will gain +2fp bonding bonus whenever they're portrayed in pictures together (full body, colored, shaded)!

As month changes, so does monthly quest! This time you'll be helping wild animals, and as a reward dog and cat friends are back with new additions! And yes, there additions are immediately appliable, even for sets bought from Divine shop.

GinSasori's Sweets 6102 won the kukuri of the month this time with her cuteness, and you may start voting for January's Kukuri! Which of the kukuris has caught your eye lately? What story has stuck into your mind?

Traveling can sometimes be confusing, so now there is a guide to help out with it! Hopefully you'll find it both useful and inspiring! 

And lastly, some link clean up. Overall in navigation, but also open chest/herb pouches links can now also be found from bank to hopefully make people's lives easier!

Hope you enjoy the last month of the year! Make the most of it, but try to not fill yourself up too much with sweets and treats!

New banking threads, Suraya, Untuva and Raei arrive late, Cleaned news, Breeding+Kuku of the month closed, Who's that p--Badge?
We got brand new banking threads for item trades, stockpiling and applying familiars! Old bank was getting very close to 10,000 comments - aka breaking - so we had to evacuate! 

RaeiUntuva and Suraya were added to the Divine Shop 2018! Terribly sorry for forgetting these three from the shop. 

Breeding and Kukuri of the Month are closed for November! They will return in December~

Old news were moved to archive(linked at the bottom). The journal was growing looooooooooooooooooong!

We are really close finishing rolling of Carnival of Life 2018 too! We are starting to give out the award badges to kukuri who joined in the event in next few days. These will be added automatically to all kukuris imports that took part in the event - we will make news once they all have been given out.
Reward claiming opens once all CoL entries have been rolled, but I think it's good time to start gathering your proofs!

But what's this??
Badge of Bonding by momma-kuku
If you are looking to draw cool prompts, you might be surprised at the start of DecemberStay tuned!

Hey there!

Thank you for letting us know you've encountered this problem. If that's the case, it's possible the comment thread has reached it's maximum number of comments and has broken ;__;

I've informed one of the senior mods and they'll be making a new comment thread as soon as possible. Once it's made, I'll reply back to you with the new link, and hopefully it shall work! <3
drgness Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2019  Hobbyist General Artist
ok thx!
Miruae Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2019
Hey again!

We did some tests and it seems the comment thread hasn't reached its limit and is still working :(

One of the mods suggests that, if you're commenting on a phone or tablet, it might be worth trying on a PC as mobile deviantART is quite buggy..

Otherwise, have you tried commenting just anything as a reply? I'm wondering if copy-pasting from the doc is causing some weird problem.

If you can type just the codes of your first and second choice genos (eg, A-36 and C-112) I'd accept that.

Otherwise, I might have another idea <3

Is there any way to get one? And how much is a myo slot?/ how much people offer for theirs?
Miruae Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2019
Hey there! Thank you for your interest on kukuri <3

Kukuri doesn't work off the basis of myo slots. Rather, you can get your very first kukuri entirely free from the Adoption Center! -…
