Last week for Carnival of Life!
Hello there, loves, and I hope you are getting ready for the end of the Carnival of Life! Sky has been ominous for a long time already and kukuris are feeling restless. Thunder is in the air. Last week has been opened, but keep in mind that this week ends 15th of November 6 PM GMT! After that there's much cleaning to be done, but we all are surely relieved this all will be okay... I hope.

Nothing much to say this time! Pike Master Deluxe awayyyyyyyy ~

Design approval open!
Hello, there fellow kukunuts, Gry here! The overhaul was exhausting and long progress (longer than any of us anticipated, yikes!), but now since that is out of the way, I'm more than happy to announce the re-opening of Design approval! 

Some important notes to take into account!
While I understand you're eager to toss all your designed kukuri babies in at once, Please do remember that you can only post ONE design within 24 hours! 

ALL the old design corrections will now have to follow new rules of the markings. Be prepared for this if you were not fast enough sending in your corrections before overhaul! 

Inked kukuris now have heterochromia appearing on them - just like piebald! How exciting!

That being said, we are still following how marking updates work out in actual designs. There might be some fiddling and small changes happening during this time on a very short notice - but don't worry! If any changes were to happen, we will announce of them in news!

The gates are open, Go wild!

A new month has started, which brings a lot of things to play with!
Hello there, you peeps, I hope you all have recovered from Halloween and started thinking about Christmas (atleast marketing has already that covered here in Finland...)

Week 6 has started and thunder has been roaring all over the horizon in Carnival of Life! What on earth that can mean...? You have one and half week time to make entries you desire, whether it is for rewards or contaminate your precious muppet raptor, so make sure to get those entries in while you still can! After week 6 there will be week 7, but it'll be only half of a week!

Breeding has been opened! After long burst rolling through queue, jrusti and WithoutCommonSense thought we had a clean journal in our hands... atleast for a minute. Literally. You guys are fast to notice stuff.

Gentle poke for all of you who have been waiting; design approval opens at 8th of November! You still have time to explore all newly written markings and get a hang of them before you can submit your dream kukuri in!

Another gentle poke from our dear bank goblin again; when selling or trading items that include animal name, remember to tell us what you are actually selling or trading! Writing only 'moose' doesn't tell us are you selling its skull or pelt (or hoof, horns or nose). Keep the information flowing in this wild highway of information!

It's perfect time to enjoy hot chocolate after long walk in the cold. I recommend adding marshmallows in and stirring the drink with candy cane! It is delicious mix~

Design overhaul finished, guides HUB update, design and symmetry guide, pages have images, Kukuri of the month chosen
It's past midnight in Finland, so surprise! THE GRAND DESIGN OVERHAUL IS FINISHED. Multiple new examples of correct and incorrect were added, rules refined, we got a fancy new menu, and some markings even got some neat little upgrades!
    - Hood and Socks now allow blended borders
    - Gradient allows bypassing of the lighter/darker rule on common markings
    - Marbled switched from orange ranges to green ranges, meaning that it can now manifest anywhere in the body! There's also a lot of spicy new examples there
    - Dominant Calico now allows the spots to be any color possible as long as they follow the saturation rules (yes, this means you can even do pink spots).
    - Dominant Wisp can now appear anywhere in the body
    - Inked now got fancy new sliders, and in it's dominant form can be using any normal marking color as long as it's darker than the base color. It also shares it's rules with piebald now.
    - Koi got a spicy little refinement to make it resemble more it's namesake - You can now play with the balance of the white and dark areas in the body! Also the rule which formed that koi has to form spots has been clearly overwritten to allow more, well, koi-like markings!
    - Also all the mutation pages have been given a little face lift!

Huge thanks goes to jrusti, GryAdventures, Peurankasvo, Zada2011, lilwyverngirl, ShadowMagpie, and me I guess for doing some heavy lifting, but also thank you to people who helped on the side which where Crashfurs, BlueTheCaracal, KebabPekoniRulla,Sankko, Keimi9103 and Jalohauki! As you can see, it was whole team effort!

Design approval will open at 8th of November, so you have all the time to adjust to new rules. Be prepared though that there will be limits in place, as we're sure a lot of you are itching to get your babies in. Please make sure to check all the marking pages so the design approving can go as smoothly as possible!

Guides HUB has gotten little bit of face lift on it's own, and now has two design related new guides there! Namely Designing guide and Asymmetry guide, so if either are your tripping stones I recommend giving it a look!

We added multiple pagedolls by admins on pages which were lacking images - there's 11 in total, have fun finding them all!

Last but not least, the Kukuri of the month has been chosen and this month it's EscapingValhalla's walking muscle of intimidation Czar 2027! Congratulations, and remember to vote for next month's Kukuri!

That was a lot, but hopefully it all was worth the wait. Hope you had a wonderful Halloween, and if you live in a country where it gets darker and darker every day (looking at you, scandinavia), remember to wear reflectors! Carnival of Life isn't the only place having dark skies after all.

Contamination week 5, Overhaul updates, Breeding and Kukuri of the month closing soon
Hello hello! October has gone past so fast, it still feels like it haven't started. Yet here we are! I'm here with awesome news today, which I believe people have been waiting for!

First things first - Week 5 has started on Carnival of Life 2018! And same time, 1 hour safe guard for week 4. Is.. the sky darkening?
    Starting from week 5, we switch to PVE only. Collabing PVE is still possible however! Join us on fighting the shroomified arena fighters!

And then.... Design central overhaul is coming to an end soon! We are almost done!
We've made timetable for publishing the new guides.
    - New updated marking guides will be published on 1st of November!
    - Design approval will open week later, on 8th of November!
We are opening design central in two steps, to give everyone time to go through all the new guides and marking updates, and of course, making updates to their designs if needed. This way there's no rush dropping your designs to the approval. There are some really nice updates on some markings, I'm happy that we're soon able to show them to everyone Heart
    As a little teaser, we've published the mutation guides already! Head to Genes and mutations read more of those!

Breeding and Kukuri of the Month will be closed on 30th of October, 6 PM GMT!
 There's still few days to post breedings and vote for the next Kukuri of the Month!

That's all for today, but we'll see you guys soon!


Contamination is spreading and little rule clarification
Carnival of Life is going forward and week 4 has started! Hold onto your kukuris, since the fighters are now more likely to spread the contamination, which is stronger than before! Be careful if you don't want to get your kukuri get a nasty shroom flu, but if you are looking just that, you know what to do! *kicks kukuris into the arena*

And just to be safe, we've added new rule to the event. Some of the entries have depicted kukuris having more playful fight than others. Remember, Carnival of Life is about sparring against your dear friend-enemies and even if it can be quite fun sometimes, it must be a fight! So leave silly playfights to lore pictures and let's make kukuris fight with one another real time! If you have entry with playfight, don't worry, those will count as long as they're posted before this newsflash!

It's getting slippery out there, for both walking people and drivers. Keep safe and drive slowly!

Coliseum of Life has been contaminated, and new admins have been cont- chosen
Week 3 of Carnival of Life has begun... but something is wrong, terribly wrong. When all seemed nice and fun, the fighters of the coliseum have been caught with the Contamination.

This puts following changes to the coliseum:
- Contamination is now attainable from the fighters
- All PVE pictures must show the contaminated fighters (sorry those who did them in advance!)
- You are able to heal the contamination via picture during the event
- You may continue PVP till 28th of October as promised, and you may continue fighting against the contamination till 15th of November. These entries count for the reward amounts.
- The questionmarked rewards have been revealed!

On top of that, we have new admins (who are fine, for now)! TentiSlime joins as an activity jack, so you'll see them helping with all the activities, and Eraili and MaraMastrullo have joined as design approvers once the central opens! Please be understanding with them as they adjust to their positions and welcome them warmly in the team <3

Enjoy your shroomy october! Remember to use reflector when going out in the dark (it's very dark in Finland)!

CoL rule addition regarding magic and literature
Hello sweetie pies and long time no see! I'm back to ruin your childhood dreams and lay down some rules that we found are necessary.

Your Kukuri may not use magical powers in any of the official events, including this CoL. You CAN portray your Kukuri using such magical oddities in your own personal pieces for FP and even for activities, monthlies and such, but as Kukuris do not by lore have magic, it can't be recognized in the official events.

However, since this rule was not written down, entries on the last week that have Kukuris showing magic will still be accepted, but this week they will be denied.

We have also clarified that the literature involving CoL should have at least around 50% of the required word amount concentrated on the fight.

Thank you for understanding and hope you're enjoying CoL and sparring against each other! The entries so far have been magnificent enough that even Life would stop being a grumpy butt for once and we're excited to see what you'll bring us next week <3

Carnival of Life, Remember your miniatures, Kukuri of the Month, Past monthly quest Bgs gone from shop
Carnival of Life 2018
The unpredictable storms this autumn had thrown onto people did not stop them from preparing for Carnival of Life. As the coliseum doors were opened, Kukuris were excited to test their skills against each other in controlled environment, and the handlers had fun betting against each others. Small stalls selling products every kind imaginable were littered around the coliseum, the usually quiet place teetering with life and laughter.
As usual, the God festivals brought Kukuris wild and tame together, and medical team was on the site prepared to break more blood thirsty fights and attend anyone who needed it. You could feel the tension and excitement on the air, and the excitable screams of cheering.
However, it was all broken in one simple night.
No-one knows how it happened, but suddenly the head fighters of the coliseum got infected with contamination, which some people could remember happening from 

Carnival of Life 2018 is here! Join us on the arena, prove yourself against mighty fighters and win awesome rewards! There are some updates on the rules this year, and how event is handled! Read the journal carefully through before continuing on event entries! Timer will return to group page soon to mark us the end of each week!
    We want to point out that Leasing kukuri for entries this year is not allowed! But if you do not own your own kukuri, you can use the group starters! 
While CoL is rolling, there will be no monthly quest. Let's have awesome Carnival of Life together guys! 

We have our second Kukuri of the Month! Congratulations to Milka 4720, owned by MaraMastrullo! Rewards for winning have been given out, thus starts the voting for Kukuri of the Month for November!

Is your miniature still without toes? It is still free to move miniatures to new import! Time is running short though, so I'd hurry! Head to this journal to read more!

Past monthly quest BGs have now left the Shop!

HERE WE GO! October is upon us and winter is coming! Stay warm!


SURPRISE ATTACK from your fellow reminder admin!
That's right, I only stopped by to give you something to do while waiting our big things to update! Design overhaul is going great, we are about halfway done with all of the guides and such! The team is working with it as fast as they can, and we aim to open design approvals sometime in October!

But while waiting, remember that Carnival of Life is approaching us all! So if your kukuris have unused skill points and you want them to be in top shape in arena, update them now to avoid queue during the event!

Kukuri of the Month voting is still going on! If you have an idea who you would want to see on the front page for next month, let us know~

While I'm on it, you have little less than a week time to post breedings of September, vote for kukuri of the month or take part for Monthly Quest to receive unique cat friend! All of them will be closed 29th at 6 PM GMT!

Last but definitely the most important! We are searching 1-2 design approval admins! Now is the chance to be part of this awesome (personal opinion, admin note) team and help us once the overhaul has been done! Quoting my fellow jrusti with this ''APPLY FOR DESIGN APPROVER ROLE WEE NEEED HELP''

Remember to stretch fingers and toes whenever drawing long periods of time, alright? I don't know how toes affect it, but it can't be bad for them either!



Starter raffle rolled!
Slot raffle for updated starter kukuris has been rolled! We received HUGE amount of members joining the raffle! Reading through all the messages has been wholesome journey, and we as team are thankful for the awesome community and members Kukuri has. You guys are awesome!

Winners have now been rolled, and can be seen here. Congratulations to everyone! We wanted to share the good feels, and of course encourage spreading some not much seen rarer genes - Wax, Laced, Magma, Eidos and Ripple - so we decided to roll 4 slots each for following Prairie startersAvril 2650Saltstream 2652Maor 2654 and Trona 2657! These extra slots and their winners are listed at the end of the list.


Your friendly neighbourhood reminder admin here!
It's been almost AN ETERNITY since we last time updated!

Our fellow admin team wants to remind you all that refraining from using thumbnails when posting anything to the group is highly recommended! Thumbnails will slow us down in all lines of work (activity rolls, FP countings, import updates, breedings etc) and makes the text and forms really hard to read for some of us! At some cases using thumbnails can even prevent you from getting what you want, since we can send you back at the end of the line! We hate to do it, so please make our life a little bit easier by using links. Thank you ~

On more positive note, there's still couple days time to vote for your favorite starter kukuri! Raffle ends at 14th of September at 6 PM GMT, so make sure to drop your opinion in there to take part to raffle! There's big surprise lurking there so you don't want to miss this!

It's flu season, so keep your toes warm (miniature kukuri toes too) and drink a lot of hot chocolate or tea, loves!~



Admin team is one short, miniatures found their toes and new rule regarding overbreeding!
I have some lovely news, but also some wistful news this time, loves!
Unfortunately Aoiameku has decided it is best to step down from her admin duties. We wish her best of luck to the future and thank her for everything she has done for the team so far <3

But what is this? TOES??

2018-07-26 1252 by Kuku-ri
It has been a long journey to find the missing toes of the miniatures, but now they have finally made it! We have new miniature import lines and you can use them right now! For a month it is allowed to change old miniature lines into new ones for free, before needing alteration scroll to do so~ Head in here to spawn some little toesies for your anklebiters!

We are forced to slam these reminder hammers down once again
- PLEASE link the kukuri imports and their owners into description of your artworks and literatures! We can't stress it enough how much easier life will be if this is done!
- Another reminder concerns a trend of using unapproved kukuri in training (or in any pictures) - do NOT do this, please! If training artwork contains unapproved kukuri (which basically is non-existent before uploading), the training will not pass for any kukuris in the picture. It is smol while to wait while your kukuri is approved and uploaded!

It was also concern how rebirthed kukuris will be used in training - now rebirthed kukuris will be marked as rebirthed, so their old art will pass as training for other kukuris (however, they still don't gain FP from any art portraiting old design and old art can't be used for them as training). You can get this text added into old rebirthed kukuris by finding the rebirthing comment and heading to import updates where admins will add it to awards wall!

Lastly but least, some rule add-ons!
- Overbreeding has been harsh for both kukuri's owner and the possible slot owner. Now when overbreeding happens, the person not owning the overbreeding kukuri is not being punished! They will keep their slot, monthly breeding slot and enamored used like no breeding has happened. However, if the owner of the overbreeding kukuri is the one doing the deed, they will loose everything like normal. The kukuri being overbred will loose slot regardless of the user. Please keep track of your slots so this wouldn't happen to your lovely noodles! This rule will be in use from now on and will not affect old breedings!
- There's been a couple unofficial reference imports floating around, hidden in trackers of kukuris. It is okay now to draw a reference sheet of your kukuri, but it can't portrait anything the kukuri does not have - like missing tail, a ruffle, markings etc. Please refrain from using official import however, to do modifications on your kukuri if you can't submit it to the import updates as soon as possible!

I hope that was everything. Don't you worry, we have plenty of exciting updates coming up while you wait design overhaul completing! Prepare your kukuri couples and kukuri fighters, something is coming from the horizon...



Kukuri of the Month open again, New monthly quest, BGs on shop for limited time
