3. STYLE. VERNIDS COME IN MANY DIFFERENT STYLES, HERE'S FEW EXAMPLES:


Vernid styles by LiLaiRa

FEEL FREE TO USE ALL 3 OR EXPERIMENT WITH YOUR OWN IDEAS FOR BOTH ANTHRO AND FERAL VERNIDS.


4. QUICK DESIGN RULES SUM UP


+ Females are bigger

+ Main difference between males and females is their mane

+ Royal vernids are closed subspecies (you can buy MYO or turn your existing vernid into one for €15, avaible to buy through notes any time c:)
+ Vernids created by you MUST have stripes on their back, however stripes can have various shapes and forms.
+ Fur musn't be GREEN.
+ Paw pads, inner ear, gums, tongue, flesh, insides (basicly all the fleshy parts) MUST HAVE THE SAME COLOUR, or very similar tones, or two together MAX. ex.
 (double coloured ears with hints of colour on their pawpads or tongue)
+ Claws, scales and horns are colour linked as well.
+ Belly is usually light colour but doesn't have to be
+ Albinos are rare and their survival rate is low because of lack of camouflage or discrimination by their own kind.
+ Vernids can mix ONLY with dragons, felines and canines. If the dragon breed posses horns/antlers, their offspring may be born with them.

If a dragon parent is winged, vernid may be born with wings too, but not big enough for them to be able to fly.

YOU ARE ALLOWED TO MAKE THOSE HYBRIDS, BUT ANYTHING BEYOND IS FORBIDDEN. MUTATIONS ARE EXCLUSIVE TO ME.


5. OTHER RULES


+ YOU ARE ALLOWED TO SELL VERNID ADOPTABLES, AUCTION THEM, SELL BASES AND MERCH.
+ YOU CANNOT CLAIM THE WHOLE SPECIES AS MADE BY YOU
+ YOU CAN TURN YOUR FERAL VERNIDS INTO ANTHROS AND BACK
+ YOU CANNOT ADD ACCESORIES ON FERAL VERNIDS, THEY ARE CONSIDER BEASTS AND CANNOT BE TAMED.
+ YOU CAN USE VERNID IN YOUR COMICS, GAMES, WRITING ETC. AS LONG AS YOU CREDIT ME AS A SPECIES MAKER AND OWNER.

Can an Anthro Vernid breed with an Anthro Manticore? Since the Manticore has the body of a lion I'm assuming it's a possibility.

I'm not the creator, but somewhere in the q&a there was a part about crossbreeding vernids and from what I remember they can breed with other animals. I also remember an dragon hybrid vernid adopt made by LiLaiRa, so if they can breed with dragons I'm assuming that then they can breed with manticores too :3

Question, I realize Euros and USD currency is different, I'm not looking to upgrade a Vernid currently, but how would one be able to transfer USD to Euro currency (or if it's possible)?? I'm curious abt this


Also apologies I'm still in school so idk how money fully works via country to country just yet... :V

:iconnuperjo:
Nuperjo Featured By Owner Edited Jun 28, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, currency can be traded. And if you have an account on PayPal they do the conversion automatically when you send the money.
However money does not equal the same thing in each country. In this case 15 Euros =  $17.36, so that's what you'd have to pay to upgrade.

Hope that helps, if not feel free to ask more questions ^_^ I always try to help if I can.

I'm not an admin or anything, but as seen in BOTH reference sheets, it is only USUALLY females are bigger in height and length (to assume females can be shorter /then males/ it is meerly misunderstanding or opinion). But to be certain you can ask LiLaiRa via notes or messages through dA

Im not an admin or anything, however from my understanding If you are making a feral then No, your Vernid cannot be bright in color, but you can mix it up a little with an anthro. Just be sure to ask LiLaiRa using notes via dA or ask the group itself :3

Very nice colors, but I'd have to suggest to tone down the stripes. They seem like they'd be a little too bright, but besides that, it looks very good!

What Is basically considered to bright on a vernid (feral or anthro)? Arnt Feral supposed to be more natural? Cause with anthro vernids they are allowed to dye their hair and fur correct?

I am a bit confused about the horns and hope someone has an answer.

Royal Vernids have horns. But dragon hybrid Vernids can also have horns. How do you differentiate the type(s) of horns? Do royal Vernids only have one horn style? Do dragon hybrids with the same type of horn style have to have other dragon features as well? 

Many dragons have swept back horns like Royal Vernids seem to have as an overall feature.


How would one go about this if they wanted to make a dragon-vernid hybrid with horns without crossing the lines into the closed subspecies of Royal Vernids ?

Omega-Fluff Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, I saw that and know that. 
What I'm trying to figure out is whether or not they can have the same STYLE of horns as Royal's as that swept back styling is very common for dragons. 
Can they be large horns? Small horns? What separates a Royal from a Hybrid? Must they possess other dragon bits / pieces or can they just have horns because just having horns seems to be what makes them Royal. 

I have read the guides, I am trying to figure out what exactly a dragon Hybrid must possess in order to not be considered 'Royal' as it is incredibly unclear at this point.

:iconomenoxide:
omenoxide Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
No, I don't believe so. What differentiates Royal Vernids from hybrids is their one and only style of horn. Royals can't have anything different, so I would assume dragon hybrids cannot have the same type because it is unique to royals, if that makes sense? Some Royal Vernids have scales, but honestly, the most important part is that if you make a dragon hybrid, do NOT use that style of horns.

So, why not try large, curling horns like a ram's or tiny devil horns? Both would be legal.

It does but in the 'Quick Design Rules Sum Up' it also says : '+ Vernids can mix ONLY with dragons, felines and canines. If the dragon breed posses horns/antlers, their offspring may be born with them.'

So I'm trying to figure out if the swept back styling of horns that are seen on Royal Vernids are restricted specifically to Royal Vernids or if a Vernid/Dragon half breed would be able to have that style of horns as well? The goal is to know what dragon qualities a half breed would need to possess so as to not make it look like a Royal Vernid, since scales and horns might not be enough to differentiate.

That was my understanding as well honestly, but I wanted to double check because I've already gotten some fans of the species telling me only Royals can have horns. 

Whereas we can clearly see that LiLaira has stated Hybrids can as well. But does the horn style apply to shaping? Sizing? There's no clear answer anywhere so I was hoping to get one.
