The Great Design Central Overhaul Is Coming, Don't do too huge fp sheets(spare our FP counters), Track your slots, Kuku discord has emotes!We are finally able to continue with the design guide updates.
And we've decided to go big or go none! While this is little ironic to announce closure of design approval again right after announcing it's opening, this update is really needed to make the guides more clear for all of us to use. We will be adding - for example - range images for all ruffle/tail types!
Shortly: The Great Design Central Overhaul will start 27.7
, with closure of Design approval at 9 PM GMT.
This means, you have two weeks to post your designs to approval! Design approval will stay closed as long as it takes for us to go through all guides and possibly create new journals etc. Design corrections will stay open for week after Design approval closing. Design corrections are closing on 3.8, 9 PM GMT.
If you do not post your design to corrections before design corrections closing, possible new marking rules
will apply on your design after overhaul has been finished.
We are excited to finally be able to move with this update, and I'm pretty sure many of you will appreciate
full overhaul on that piebald
gene! If you have something in mind regarding the unwritten rules
, it's starting to be last chances to let us know about them! Head to the poll to drop your comment!Keep good track of your kukuris used slots!
As of late, there's been many overbreedings happening, hurting the overbred kukuri. Remember to check from status updates page for how many slots your kukuri has on each rank. Another reminder; overselling slots to your kukuri is against the group rules
. You are not allowed to write slots to kukuri that doesn't have them. For example, writing to permission "Do not use this slot before the kukuri reaches x rank" is rule that we will not honor
when rolling results to breedings. When slot is written, it should be usable the same moment you've hit submit button.
On side note, we will be discussing overbreeding penalties with the team and there will be update regarding them in close future.Collaboration bonus applies to literature!
This was applied with the personal bonus, but because of some kind of brainfart, it was not added to the Fate Points and Skill Points
journal. But it is there now!
To ease workload on our FP team; When doing FP sheets, please avoid making them too huge
. Too huge FP amounts (from 60 FP ++) are harder to count.
On not so serious matter; we have added some emotes to official Kukuri group chat! (Discord)
! While it's still few, there will definitely be more in future! Come check them out if you haven't already!
Design approval open, New minimal art selling rules, Reminders, Miniature examples on marking guides, Design approval admin spot open, Monthly quest clarification
There's many updates and reminders today and it's a lot to read, but we can do this together /o/ There are some important changes and reminders included.Design approval is now open!
Remember the 1 design per 24 hours rule when posting!Genes and mutations now has both common and prairie miniature range example images
on all marking guides + minimal white/black! Big thanks to Peurankasvo Jalohauki
for working on these! We will slowly continue with the marking guide polishing also! We've read the suggestions from poll and listed what is needed to be done.
When designing and looking for inspiration to designs: You may not trace any designs of an another Kukuri
. Kukuris have a wide range of markings, and we courage people to strive for uniqueness. While you are allowed to get inspirated by other designs, even by few parts of them, the whole design should still be unique and not look exactly like some other design.We have updated minimal art selling price rule of the group!
In general, it's good to remind ourselves of the Group Rules / Terms of Service
, if it's long time from last reading. At minimum an activity roll can be sold at 5$, if more kukuri of the same owner are included, every additional kukuri is +2,50$. For three kukus, that would mean full image is 10$. General minimum price for art sold is 5$, but for pure FP and sheets with re-used bases, the minimum price for each FP is 0,50$. Meaning 1 FP = 0,50$, 10 FP = 5$, 25 FP = 12,50$ and so on.
These rules apply on both group advertisement folders and discord advertisement channels.
General reminder of linking kukuris in the submission descriptions!
From now on in Training, linking all the kukuris in description of training images/literatures is must.
If this has not been done, your request might get declined and forwarded to the Training corrections. This rule is set for the fact, that it makes the working on both FP counts and Training completion harder if they have to guess are the kukuris real or not, do they get the other kuku, guardian and parent bonuses or not.Breeding
: Enamored rules got little polishing
. We added part which explains the minimum requirement for background to pass, which is 3 bigger elements at minimum
. However, more the elements, bigger chance of passing!We are still accepting applications to the Design approval admin position! The admin team (and applications)!
While you're at it, do check the awesome admin pile image that was added on the page! This image was made by Crashfurs
.Lastly, we've adjusted the Monthly Quest a little:
You can now draw Puuhka familiars helping, or guarding your possessions against the stealing birds! This is not must however, but if it tickles your fancy, go wild!
We also forgot to mention last time, that July monthly prompt was suggested by TwoTassel
, meaning that July had two winners from the suggestion contest! Congrats!
New monthly quest, Read before you post breedings - breedings are open, new journals
So the June has passed and we turn our gazes on July. July offers us new monthly quest, with new familiar named Puuhka
! Some nasty birds are rampaging around the land of Kukuri, stealing the shinies....... Monthly Quest has changed! Congratulations to EscapingValhalla
, who is the winner of this month from the familiar/item suggestion contest! Head to the journal to read more about this months quest!Breeding is now open again! However, please continue reading before you hop in to the journal and new breedings.
- Post a breeding request and Post a breeding slot permission both have new journals now
! They were getting too close to 10k comments and thread breaking, that we decided to move to new journals! Update your links guys!
- When posting breedings, please read carefully the Familiars/Traits: part!
You don't need to write mutations, markings, skill points or ranks there
, as they are not traits
. Only literal breeding familiars
(Puhva, Chio, Enmi) and traits
(Knowledge of the Wild, Hunter of the Wild, Friend of all Floral, Archaeologist Extraordinaire and Discovery Expert) are listed there.
- Do not use thumbs when linking enamoreds or kukuris! Thumbs slow our work down.
- Do not use icons when tagging people to breedings! Usage of @ tag is suggested. Icon tags slow our work down.
- If you're doing split breeding with other member, remember to confirm the split/item usage
with reply to the breeding or if you own one kukuri in the breeding, write to the permission that it's split with you.
That's all this time!

, and FP bonus of +2 still exists!
We are looking forward to see even more colorful and whimsy entries you have created!Adoption Center received a good ol' update!
Now those who wish to part with their adopted, already imported kukuri, can drop them into adoption center even if it would be closed from donations! This act doesn't yield any money, since it's meant for people leaving kukuris and wishing to donate the import back.
Hmm, I have a feeling I'm forgetting something... Oh yeah! The most important reminder of all!Please try to be kind towards our admins!
There's been couple situations lately and we'd like to remind that all mods are people too! Even if you are frustrated, everything can always be solved through neutral actions, there's no need to discharge the ball of bad feeling on admins. We all are hired here voluntarily to keep the game running and would appreciate if the members would allow us a breather or too when mistakes happen~
It's getting hotter! Remember to water plants and keep water bowls for animals full too, while taking a sip of cold water yourself ~
Monthly Quest is back!
We all have been waiting for it; the summertime and the month of pride! Monthly Quest has returned
and with a great help of our admin squad we have baked some prideful prompts for you to celebrate during these hot sunny days! All monthly entries have a chance to drop etherical rocks and a new, more powerful, celestial rocks as rewards! Go spread the love ~
To make the workload somewhat smaller, we have decided to keep Breeding closed for unknown time,
and it'll be opened once the queue has been tackled! So please be patient with us ~
Enjoy the ice cream you have bought and remember to be patient with yourself too! Happy pride time everyone!
Reminder for loot baskets, breeding will be closed, FP countings will be closed

And to help our fellow FP admins, we have decided to close down FP countings as well
. Status updates
a ka skill point applies will remain open, and you have time until tomorrow to post your trackers into the thread before we close it. The countings will be opened once again the queue has been defeated!
Summer is coming fast and the sun is burning down, so remember to drink water and sit in shade while being outside ~

5 weeks flew past so quickly! There won't be monthly quest this month, so we all can take it easy after event and relax. Monthly quest returns in June, and we have something really nice planned for it!
Festival of Death week 5, Bluejay feather confusion clearingFod week 5 has started!
And that starts our last week!There's been confusion of Bluejay feather and what it counts for
. Trust me, we both have been equally confused.
But here's the deal: Bluejay feather counts as normal/common size feather in crafts. It is also used as special feather in some crafts, so you can't use other normal feathers when bluejay feather is asked in the craft.
Have fun with the last week of FoD!
Festival of Death week 4, Help us to make life of FP counters easier, New admins!Fod week 4 has started!
And the familiars have been published!
There have been confusion of drawing/writing more than one entry to FoD weeks. You can draw more than one, if you want to get that FP boost. But only one image is posted in comment thread each week
, because you can claim only one feather per week. So if you draw more than one, posting them to group is enough!
Reminder: Please link the kukuris in submissions/descriptions when you post art of your kukuris!
This makes counting and import checking easier to our FP counters, when they don't have to search for the kukuris.Admin applications have been closed
! Welcome in Dexteri
to Activity rolling team, and RoutArt
to Quest rolling! Please be kind to them while they learn the secrets of rolling and handling things around group ovob
Release to wild published, some clarifying on miniatures huntingRelease to Wild has arrived!
You can now release unwanted genos there, instead of dropping them to Adoption center. The influx of genos has grown bigger on Adoption center, so we decided to bring this option to the game! Feel free to move some older not yet accepted
donations from Adoption center to Release to wild if you wish to! Just remember to hide the donating comment from other thread.
Reward for each released geno is 300 Cr, no matter the genetics. This is so to make the releasing easy and quick to handle for both sides. Miniature solo hunting minuses have been clarified better
. These are not new add-ons, they've always applied in hunting, but now they are written more clearly to Hunting
and Mutation - Miniature
