Fate Points and Skill Points

Fate points by Unikeko

Fate points (FP) are a way to follow your Kukuri's path to maturity and their experience in life. It's used to unlock new skill point and breeding bonuses, not to mention some other things. Every time your Kuku is involved in a picture, drawn by you or someone else, you're eligible in getting points. Below are the amounts of FP you can get depending of the picture.

Make a FP tracker to keep count of how many points you have!
Since Kukuris have little different way of making FP tracker compared to other arpgs, please remember to read FP tracker (and how to make one)


‼ NOTICE ‼

Aim for practice and inviduality in your art. If your art look like it's from almost the exact same posture or lines, and two images are pretty much identical, your Fate Points might be halved or denied. Motivate yourself to try new things and learn! Here's an example of what is not acceptable.




Kukuri body ranges by Unikeko


Headshot (50% visible)

The image must be at least 300x300 in size, and the kuku inside around 150x150. In other case the points may be halved.

Base: 1
Most of the markings should be somehow visible, preferably ones that are very prominient on the design and makes the Kukuri recognizable.
Colored: +2
Shaded: +1
The shades need to be visible more than by just squinting, and little more than little shadow under chin and tail, for example.
Background: +1
Needs to be little more than a color gradient. We will compare to your gallery.

Full body

The image must be at least 300x300 in size, and the kuku inside around 150x150. In other case the points may be halved.

Base: 2
Most of the markings should be somehow visible, preferably ones that are very prominient on the design and makes the Kukuri recognizable.
Colored: +3

Shaded: +2
The shades need to be visible more than by just squinting, and little more than little shadow under chin and tail, for example.
Background: +2
Needs to be little more than a color gradient. We will compare to your gallery.

Sculptures

3D sculpture
Headshot base: 2
Headshot colored: +2
Fullbody base: 5
Fullbody colored: +3

Hand-made sculpture (wood, clay, pumpkin etc.)
Headshot base: 5
Headshot colored: +3
Fullbody base: 10
Fullbody colored:
+5

Pixel art

When the Kukuri is 150px*150px or smaller, bigger pixel art counts for normal bonuses.
Headshots are half the amounts.
Base: 2
Colored: +1

Shaded: +1
The shades need to be visible more than by just squinting, and little more than little shadow under chin and tail, for example.
Background: +1
Needs to be little more than a color gradient

Literature

Literature does not necessary have to be a stand-alone writing, it can be accompanied in the picture. HOWEVER, this form MUST be filled for any story with 500+ words, and put in the literature's description;

Word count:
Handler (if present):
Main Kuku: There must be at least 1 Kuku which appears through the whole story.
Side Kukus (Whole story): A side Kuku NEEDS to have impact in the story, they can not be offhandedly mentioned every now and then.
Side kukus (Part story): A kuku that appears only momentarily in the story and is not present during the whole time. Can be multiple.
Part story word counts: A Kuku who only appears for a moment gets their FP only from the point they appear to the point they leave the story.

Under 500 words:
1fp/200 words
Main Kuku (500+ stories):
1fp/150 words
Side Kuku (500+ stories):
1fp/200 words

Literature points will be rounded up.

Notes about literature:
Only following bonuses count for literature:
-Hunting/Gathering/Excavating/Traveling when the MAIN FOCUS of the story is the said activity
-Monthly bonus when the focus is on the prompt of the month
-Other kuku bonus when the said kukus counts for main or side kuku and is present for more than 500 words
-Other ARPG species, with the same rules as the other kuku bonus. LINK TO THE ARPG SPECIES' IMPORT.
Other bonuses are easily exploitable or cheatable, so they are not available for the literature. They are counted already in the points given.
If your story begins in a way that neither your main kuku nor any other kuku is present, you get half the FP during that duration, up until your main Kuku appears. Those half-FPs go towards your main kuku.
- Personal bonus, remember that your work should never be posted in sta.sh on any part of the group!
- Collaboration bonus, this replaces the personal bonus. All artists taking part of the collaboration are eligible for this bonus.
Mascot priviledge (Kiwi), gives +2FP to the Kukus owned by the artist when depicted with Kiwi 100. This bonus is given on top of the Other kuku bonus.
- Kukuri bonding. With bonding for love training, a kukuri pair will be tied to each other, gaining +2FP bonus when portrayed together in an image or a literature.

Extra bonuses

These are eligible no matter is your art headshot or full body.

Animation (simple):
+1
For example blinking, glowing, moving up and down
Animation (average): +4
One body part moving, for example tail wagging, simple head turns
Animation (complex): +2 per unique frame
Anything higher up than average animation. If there's only one body part moving in complex ways (head, for example), the bonus is +1/unique frame.
Non-colored animation is half the points!
Armor/Tack: +1
Doesn't need to be store bought. It either needs to be on Kukuri, or very visibly a tack/armor in the picture, as in big enough that it's easily noticed and clear enough that it can be recognized as a tack/armor instantly. A tack is gear, so things like saddles, harnesses, cart hitching gear and so on is considered tack, but clothes and alike are not.
Collaboration: +1
This replaces the personal bonus. All artists taking part of the collaboration are eligible for this bonus.
Comic: +1/4 panels
The panels must be meaningful, and have either a Kukuri or background/character with effort in it. Re-used panels/backgrounds do not count towards this bonus, likewise panels which do not forward the story at all (for example a leaf falling). Won't apply if the comic has 3 or less panels.
Familiar: +1
Must be at least 50% visible, and only counts for the Kuku(s) who have the familiar. Does not stack.
Handler: +2
Must be at least 50% visible and not a small dot which needs to be squinted at. Stacks only once, but all the Kukus in pic get the bonus.
A handler can be a creature from other ARPG and gain the other arpg species bonus, HOWEVER it must follow the usual handler rules: The handler must be a sentient being with their own will, and the handler must possess thumbs or be in a form that possesses thumbs.

Hunting/Gathering/Excavating/Traveling: +2
If an extra Kuku is included in the activity picture so that they do not gain the loot, they also won't get this bonus.

Activity letter prompt: +2
Kukuri must be at least 75% visible to get this bonus.

Other arpg species: +1
Does not stack. Must be at least 50% visible. Link the arpg species' import image or their group in the description for this to count.
Other Kukus: +2
If not colored and shaded, the bonus is +1. Needs to be at least 50% visible, and not owned by you. Stacks max 5 times/picture, and the kukus must be clearly interacting with each other instead of just hanging around the same canvas but different pictures.
LINK THE IMPORTS IN THE DESCRIPTION.
Personal: +2
This is a bonus which only applies to your Kukus drawn by you.

Simplistic art: Half the points.
We will check your general gallery for does your art actually check for "Simplistic" art, or is it your general style. We do not want to discriminate against any art style, and if you've clearly put lot of effor in it, it will be counted for full points.

Re-used: Half the points.

Bonded kukuri: +2
With bonding for love training, a kukuri pair will be tied to each other, gaining +2FP bonus when portrayed together in an image or a literature (fullbody, colored and shaded).

Mascot priviledge (Kiwi): +2
Gives +2FP to the Kukus owned by the artist when drawn with Kiwi 100. This bonus is given on top of the Other kuku bonus.




So what good do Fate Points exactly do? We request you to make a journal (or stash journal) to keep track of all your pictures and points, and after you've reached a certain amount which has been confirmed by an admin you're eligible for the following bonuses:

50 FP - You are on your way to become something big, and you've earned your first skill point (+1 SP)

100 FP - The experience has shapen your path, and those around you start to see it, and acquire the rank "known". Your mates won't turn you down (mutations may override this), but you may still result in an empty nest. You receive one skill point (+1 SP) (2 SP in total) and +5 breeding slots (10 breeding slots in total), and you may add up to 2 familiars to your Kuku (You may not equip familiars before this rank). 

150 FP - You're on a good roll, and have been promoted to the rank Zeta. When bred to another Zeta or above, you have no chance of producing empty clutches (Mutations may override). +1 SP (3 SP in total).

200 FP - The more you learn, the more there is to learn - it'll only get harder from here! You've been promoted to rank Delta, receive +5 breeding slots (15 in total) and +1 SP (4 SP in total)

300 FP - As your experience grows, the others start to respect your power. You've been promoted to rank Gamma, and reveive +2 SP (6 SP in total), and may add up to 3 familiars to your kuku!

400 FP - You've been promoted to rank Beta. You receive +5 breeding slots (20 in total) and +2 SP (8 in total)

500 FP - Congratulations! You've been promoted to Alpha. As a result you get +10 breeding slots (30 in total) and +2 SP (10 in total), and may add up to 4 familiars to your Kuku! From now on you'll receive +1 SP for every 100 FP.

750 FP - You have seen the world and found your place. You've been promoted to Blessed, receive +10 breeding slots (40 in total) and extra +1 SP (13 SP in total).

1000 FP - Not only the world, but you've experienced the life of those living on it, seen it's wars and it's peace. You've reached the status Arisen - no matter what rank you're bred to, there is no chance of empty nest (mutations may override), and there is a 10% chance that you have a chance of rolling 4 egged nest, and you may add up to 5 familiars to your Kuku. You get + 5 extra skill points (plus the +1SP from alpha perk) (21 in total), and from now on for every 100FP you get +5 breeding slots and +1SP.

When you enter Arisen rank you have
    21 skill points in total (without bonuses)
    40 breeding slots

MINIATURE SLOTS BY RANKS:
1 slot from beginning
100 FP Known - 2 slots total
200 FP Delta - 3 slots total
400 FP Beta - 4 slots total
500 FP Alpha - 6 slots total
750 FP Blessed - 8 slots total
1100 FP - 9 slots total

After 1100 FP miniatures receive +1 slot every 100 FP.




Skill points


Every Kukuri starts their life with three basic attributes, strength, defense and speed. When they're born, these stats are at 0. When you reach certain amount of Fate points you may unlock a new skill point, which you can then decide on which attribute you put it on - choose wisely, as different attributes improve your chances in different events and competitions!

A kukuri can have max 30 skillpoints in one stat, and they can further be improved only after all the stats are at 30.

Skill points are potentially inheritable. A parent which has 10 skill points (and every 5th afterwards is also rolled) has 10% of chance of passing a +1 bonus on that skill what the parent is potent at!

For the animation bonus, would it be able to stack
For example, if you had a tail wag and a blink would it include both simple and average or just average?

For the ARPG bonus can a closed species import count as well? Or a established adoptable?

The other ARPG bonus comes from those games that have some kind of leveling up system.

Just curious: If you draw a piece of art and post it to the kuku's FP tracker, would an admin count that picture immediately(ish), or would they wait until I post a status update and then count all the pictures I drew?
(Idk if I can explain that any better, so sorry if this is confusing XD)

Sankko Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2019  Student Digital Artist
Hello! As a rule of thumb we don't judge artstyles themself as simplistic or non-simplistic as long as it looks like there's effort put into the work. We use the artist's own gallery as a reference to see whether an image is simplistic (meaning less effort put into it overall) on their usual standard or not. So no, there's no need to fear being compared to other artists here and your style looks fine~

A quick question, does 9 full body pictures without a background and shading count as 45FP and can they be in one big picture? I'm not sure, I did try to count it and I might try to make backgrounds but I want to be sure.
Reply
:iconcaneqqy:
caneqqy Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2019  Student Digital Artist
Yup! A single full body picture would be 5 FP and so nine of them would be 45 on total. If you draw your own kukuris however the personal bonus +2 also applies, making the total 63 FP. Multiple full body drawings can be on the same canvas as well, they don't need to be posted all separately o/

A sketch would count for base points as long as at least some major marking is visible in the sketch to make the kukuri recognizable. A sketch with just line work with nothing more would not count for any points.

Hello! I'm not sure if I'm supposed to ask this here, but it seemed like a suiting place to ask so,
I've adopted my first kuku from the adoption center today, I updated the FP Tracker and got kind of confused about something, it's previous owner had made art of him while they were still it's owner, so it had the personal bonus, as I'm pretty new to all this, I was wondering if I should keep the personal art bonus or not??? here's the tracker if needed: FP Tracker: Siros 2879

Sankko Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2018  Student Digital Artist
Hello there!

When the owner of a kukuri changes, all previous art is basically "resetted", meaning that all art from the previous owner is considered art from others from now on so the personal bonuses from those are removed. The same goes for other kukus too! If there's art of him where there are kukuris of the same owner that previously didn't count for other kukuri bonus, now they do count for that. So it's all considered as if it was all fresh and new art c:

I'm unsure if your kuku is in a BTT do you get extra points for that like you get +2 for Hunting/Gathering/Excavating/Traveling? Like is it covered by the activity letter prompt?

Activity letters can be gained by a lucky roll while doing activities. Letter quests bring back items that are most needed in crafting. When you open a letter, you get a prompt to draw. This is an image all on its own so it brings FP just as any other image. :>

Hello! I am new to Kukuris, but I am interested in the group. :)
I have a question, though: Do you have to earn points to stay in the group? For example, you must earn x amount of points per month to remain in the group, and if you fail to do so, you will receive a number of strikes until you are kicked?

I just have to be sure with the points for extra kukus. If I for example have drawn a picture of my own kukuri with two kukus I do not own, does that mean when I calculate FP I should add +4 for other kukus?
