STORYLINE EVENTS

General Information:
- Storyline Events are massive choose-your-adventure type events that vary in length and are usually split into several Episodes with varying amount of Phases. 
- Phases have a certain amount of points (Phase points) that must be reached in order to unlock and move onto the next one (Progress through the storyline). In case the points needed to finish an Episode and its Phases aren't met, the Episode will be given an extension until needed amount is met.
- Once the required phase points to unlock the next episode/phase are met, a grace period of 2 weeks (or so) will be given so entrants may finish the storylines in that phase. After the grace period is over, the storylines will be locked and closed for entries.
- Storyline Events work a little differently than your usual battle event or prompt. Being as story driven as they are, each entry will be given a set of prompts that you, as the entrant, will be able to choose from and follow. The further you get into the prompts, the more points towards each phase you will receive and the more contribution you will give towards the end goal.
- Storyline Events, due to their size and length, will occur approximately once a year or two.
- All SEs will unfold the Reos plot and will bring in the next historical age. The entrants have a chance at becoming part of the Reos History
- In general, Storyline Events will bring something new to the game, be it new species, activities, items or places. They are heavily story driven and canon characters as well as players' Reoseans will play a role in these events. Storyline Events may change certain activities, due to their effect on the world's history and politics.
- Each Storyline has a good, neutral and a bad ending. The final outcome of Storyline Events may be affected by the most accumulated endings.

General Requirements for Storyline Event Entries:
- Full body, colored and shaded image with a proper background. Companions/handlers are welcome, but not mandatory unless a prompt stated so.
- If a prompt states a tyrian must be visible in the entry image, it will have to be full body or at least 75% visible.
- Some effort must be visible in your entry. Anything too sketchy or clearly rushed will not be allowed. Storyline events have grace periods in which you can finish your entries, so it is adviced you don't rush through the prompts. Your entries will be compared to your own gallery.
- Art must be your own, collaborations are not allowed unless otherwise stated. 
- Entries must follow the prompts and be in the correct geological setting of the prompt (Not your Reosean's citizenship).
- Entries are 1 Vayron per entry. To further clarify this: Unless a prompt states otherwise, the vayron you are entering with should be the only one in the image.
- Any Reosean can enter, regardless of their Citizenship. Note: For this particular storyline, tyrians may not enter.
- The Reosean you are entering with must be your own. If you do not own a Reosean yet, you may use one of the WoR starters.
- Word count for written entries is 1200 words minimum.
- If you've reached the end of a prompt line (Each prompt line has approximately 4-5 prompts), you will have to use a different Reosean and start at one of the initial prompts again.
- A prompt line may only be entered once with the same Reosean. However the same prompt line may be entered again, with another Reosean. Starters may be used several times for the same prompt line, however not by the same user.
- Grace periods are now 3 weeks long. During the 1st week of the grace period, new vayrons may enter, however after that week passes, only vayrons already entered into that phase can continue through the storyline. 

Entry form:
When entering, fill out the following form:
Link to Import: Direct link here
Link to entry: Direct link here
Prompt: The exact prompt you're entering with
Link to Previous prompt comment: A direct link to the previous entry's prompt comment chain. Must be a link to the admin's prompt reply, not your entry comment. (Leave empty if this is your first prompt)






EVENT PRIZES

Storyline Event prizes are broken down into sections, depending on how they are obtained.
Unlockable prizes can be individually obtained by anyone, depending on their activity during the event. Raffled prizes will be randomly given out to the entrants. Everyone who enters has a chance at getting a raffled prize. Individual Prizes are given out depending on the activity of a player during the event.

Unlockable Prizes:
Storyline Achievements: Every starter tyrian in this storyline event has an achievement badge that can be unlocked by completing their storyline at least once (Regardless if the ending was good, bad, or neutral). The achievement badge will be added to your Reosean's import after completing the storyline. Can only be achieved once per a Reosean per a starter Tyrian.
- Completing this Storyline Event will officially unlock Tyrians to the player base, including semi customs and breeding.

Raffled Prizes:
- Standard Vayron Semi Custom, Standard Tyrian Semi Custom, Rare Trait, Glint Modifier, Regular Modifier, Large Box of Crafts, Small Box Of Crafts, Paint Dye, Premium Loot Box, Uncommon Loot Box, Common Loot Box, 5,000 Krones

Individual Prizes:
Premium Lootbox: Complete at least 1 storyline.
Vayron Semi Custom: Complete at least 2 storylines. 
Slot to a Tier 1 Tyrian starter: Complete at least 2 storylines
Slot to a Tier 2 Tyrian starter: Complete at least 4 storylines
Slot to a Tier 3 Tyrian starter: Complete at least 6 storylines
Standard Tyrian Semi Custom: Complete all storylines

  >> REDEEM INDIVIDUAL PRIZES HERE <<

  ♦ NOTES ON INDIVIDUAL PRIZES
  - Completing a storyline: Non repeatable - ex: Completing Patchwork's storyline twice does not count as two storylines. Completing Patchwork's and Marrow's counts as two storylines).
  - A completed storyline functions as a redeemable object - Example: If you redeem 3 for the Vayron semi custom, you will not be able to redeem the same 3 again.
  - All individual prizes will be given out once the event is officially over. It is your task to keep track of all the storylines you've completed (A stash file with links to all finished storylines is strongly suggested). 
  - Tyrian starter slots: These slots will only be able to be utilized once the event is over.
  - Tyrian starter slot tiers: Please note that all tiers/starters will be revealed as the event progresses.

I have a question( Don't know where else to ask ), for me to get a slot to a tier 3 tyrian starter do I have to have one vayron complete all six storylines or can I split the storylines in between two vayrons? ( This is for the Final Grace Period )
Reply  ·  
Reos-Empire's avatar
Reos-Empire|Hobbyist Digital Artist
very late reply, sorry!
but you can do it across multiple vayrons so long as you, in the end, have completed those six storylines (keep in mind they have to be different ones! you cannot redeem the same one twice)

Question: Complete all storylines does that mean?
Every Storyline in each Phase OR all storylines in all phases to the end of the full event?

Hello! My apologies for the delay to answer! (For faster replied it's recommended to head over to the question hub by the way, We usually don't check here!) 

Anyhow, Completing all story lines means drawing/Writing every prompt for every Tyrian in every phase, So do the complete set of approx 4 for every Tyrian.
Unfortunately It's not possible to do that for the Tyrians in this journal anymore as their phases has been locked.

Sandraudiga-san's avatar
kk so if I am right.. I did all the prompts in each of this one for all Tyrian in each Phase so does that mean I earned 2 Tyrian Customs for completing all storylines in this phase or is it 1 Tyrian for doing all the prompts?

I am trying to understand how the Tyrain Customs work lol 
Reply  ·  
KizuNova's avatar
KizuNova|Hobbyist Digital Artist
It is 1 Tyrian Semi Custom for doing all the prompts, correct! That goes for both this Episode and the one coming soon!

I would love to participate in this event, I am just fixing up tiny little design mistakes on two of my Vayrons, but would I be able to participate in the event even if I'm very new in the group, and I would start with doing a picture of Marvelous, right? the first two phases seem to be locked ?(:

Hello! 
Event admin here at your service! I apologize for the delay on my reply!

Much like Lairai said, All previous phases are locked and you won't be able to enter in those storylines. The storylines for Hund and Solstice has also passed the period where you were allowed to enter, Hence you won't be able to enter in their story lines either. 
But, as soon as the next phase opens, you'll be able  to join the fun! 

We're all patiently waiting for Pudi to announce her next move in the event!

Thank you! and no worries of the slow reply lol, I can't wait to see the next phase!

As far as I know, the phase with Marvelous is locked, too - we are currently waiting for the 3rd phase to be locked (the one with Solstice and Hund) after which we will hopefully receive a new phase with new tyrians ^^ I'm pretty sure you can participate in the following one, once it's all done and organized!
