Activity Guide

Mon Aug 29, 2016, 10:16 PM by Shivali-Lorekeeper:iconshivali-lorekeeper:


UNDERSTANDING ACTIVITIES


Activities consist of Hunting, Fishing, Traversing, Quests, Adventures, and the Imperial exclusive Scouting. Your Shi'vali may participate in these activities to bring back a wide variety of loot you may redeem for in-game currency (Jining) or store for future use at the Imperial Vault. During your adventures, you may also find crafting ingredients which will allow you to craft exclusive items that can be used to boost your success rates or add bonuses to your Shi'vali!


You do NOT need to complete your CoU's to participate in H/F/T, Quests, or Adventure!


    

Chest by Shivali-Lorekeeper CREATING A TRACKER:


If you would like your activity entry to be rolled, the first thing you will need is a tracker.


  • A tracker is a journal (rather published or stash) in which your Shi'vali's progress from Empire Points, items received from Activities, to breeding slots is recorded.  Not only is this a way for you to keep track of your Shi'vali's growing status but it is a vital component for admins to be able to comment with your activity results!

You may create specific comments in your tracker for admins to reply to. For examples, you may include and link a comment that states "HUNTING RESULTS HERE" and an admin will be sure to comment in the appropriate area to keep your tracker organized!

Failure to create and link comments will allow an admin to comment openly on a journal in no order as they see fit. Why link a comment? Eventually your tracker comments will grow long! Scrolling through these endless amounts of comments can grow tedious and delay the rolling process!

Chest by Shivali-Lorekeeper SUBMITTING AN ENTRY:


You must submit your activity entries to the appropriate correlating folder (hunting to the hunting folder, fishing in the fishing folder, etc).

When submitting your deviation, it is your responsibility to ensure the correct information is provided and visible within the deviation. Deviations lacking these details or providing incorrect information will be commented on by an admin for corrections and would need to be resubmitted to the group folder.

Chest by Shivali-Lorekeeper WHAT YOU NEED TO PROVIDE IN YOUR DEVIATION DESCRIPTION:


You MUST include the following forms in your deviations descriptions in order to be rolled fairly:

FOR H/F/T/ADV/Q ONLY:


Shi'vali Import: (insert the link to the Shi'vali receiving a roll)
Shi'vali Level: (Level 1-3, see H/F/T Level Guide linked above)
Tracker Location: (Insert the link to your Shi'vali's tracker journal)
Applicable Bonuses: (RELEVANT Companions, Items, Imperial if applicable, etc)
Activity: (Please enter the activity you are entering. Hunting/Traversing/Fishing/Adventure/Quest)
Item Depicted: (The item or animal from the bazaar shown in the image)
Location: (Sky Isle or Shimora)
Item(s) Adding: (Map, Burlap Sack - Please state if IN VAULT or PURCHASING)

Please be mindful that without the above form present the image cannot be rolled!


Chest by Shivali-Lorekeeper HOW DO LEVELS WORK?


All Shi'vali begin and are limited to retrieving Level 1 items from H/F/T! This is to prevent your Shi'vali from advancing to dangerous areas too quickly. There are 3 levels total. In order to be eligible to advance to the more dangerous areas these levels explore, you must complete certain requirements.

TO LEARN MORE ABOUT LEVELS AND THEIR REQUIREMENTS, PLEASE VIEW THE H/F/T LEVELS GUIDE



REQUIREMENTS


NOTE 
Bullet; Red Shi'vali who are blind or suffer from spinal deformities have a success rate 10%  lower than regular Shi'vali.
Bullet; Red If you are depicting an NPC, you MUST identify this NPC in your forms (when including them as a bonus). NPC MUST be depicted accurately in an image and/or mentioned throughout the story in order for their bonus to apply.

Up to 4 Shi'vali can be depicted in one Image/Piece!


IMAGES
  Lantern Pixel (smol) by tulua Shi'vali must be at least 75% visible
  Lantern Pixel (smol) by tulua Must be Lined and Colored with correct background/environment
  Lantern Pixel (smol) by tulua Specific prey/item from the Bazaar must be depicted/visible! The item must CLEARLY represent the item chosen from the Bazaar.
                      Dot Bullet (Light Blue) - F2U! Traversing: Items must be clearly identifiable. Berries will NOT be accepted if they are depicted as "speckles/dots." They must have a CLEAR shape. If on a bush they must be clear and in abundance of various sizes. If on the ground they should appear as they do in the Bazaar (Hawthorns on a branch, Acai with a leaf, Blackberries in a pile, etc).

                    Dot Bullet (Light Blue) - F2U! Fishing: Prey depicted MUST represent a fish from the Bazaar. We will no longer be accepting grey fish marked as "sockeye salmon" or "bass." You MUST put in the effort of coloring the fish appropriately. This is to keep things FAIR amongst our artists. As you can see from the examples below, we are keeping everyone's levels in mind and only ask that you make the fish recognizable as one from the Bazaar.

WHAT IS ADVENTURE?

Adventures are a random player-wide event announcing newly discovered lands! The Empire needs YOUR help to uncover their secrets. What will you find in these strange new lands?

LEARN MORE ABOUT ADVENTURE ON THE ADVENTURE BULLETIN

SCOUTING

Scouting is an IMPERIAL ONLY exclusive activity! This means, your Shi'vali must have completed their CoU's and earned enough Empire Points to be recognized by the Khan. The Khan requires the help of the mighty Imperials of the Empire to explore the unexplored in hopes to expand the borders of the Empire! Uncover artifacts of Shimora's history and bring home exclusive loot! But be warned... dark creatures lurk outside of MeiMei's wards. Will you fight in the name of the Empire and call to arms your fellow riders? Or will you flee with what you can?

LEARN MORE ABOUT SCOUTING VIA THE SCOUTING GUIDE

LEASING A ROYAL

Alternatively, if you do NOT own an uploaded Shi'vali of your own but still wish to participate in activities and events, you may lease a ROYAL. You will not get any EP benefits, but you will still get rolled and still be able to earn Jining.

R U L E S

Bullet; Red You must not own ANY uploaded Shi'vali!

So basically we are looking for Bazaar items? And we can only draw them getting bazaar items?

Yes! Your Shi'vali will return the appropriate bazaar items for their level and the activity they are participating in (for example, Level 1 Fishing).

As for what you must draw, the item must be obtainable! So if you are drawing a Shi'vali hunting, you must depict them hunting something that they can return in their rewards. This means any of the pelts that can be found via hunting, you can draw those animals.

I hope this makes sense! If you have further questions feel free to ask!

OH! And another question- one image counts only once right? If I put more than one Shi in the image- it will not be scored once for one shi and then again for the other shi?

:iconlymire:
Lymire Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2017
Thanks!! :)  I guess what really confuses me is traversing? Do they have to be trying to get berries or could they just be exploring and have a chance of finding random items?
Reply
:iconnocturnalowlet:
nocturnalowlet Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Most people choose to draw berries because it's the simplest item to draw. You don't have to draw your Shi looking for berries, but you do have to draw them with a traversing item from the Bazaar. They can return any traversing item from their level, however, regardless of what item you depict in the image!

As for your other question, if you draw four Shi'vali in an activity image (the max number allowed, you can include between 1 and 4 Shi in any activity), they each will return a roll!

Can you bring back crafting items in scouting. Also can I one imperial status shi, but say in an image could I have him scouting but the other shivali traversing?
Reply
:iconxithumper:
xiThumper Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2017
Yes! Crafting items can be found in Scouting!
But you may not submit an image as two different activities as you can not have an image rolled for two different activities. Doing so may confuse our rollers which is why we have different folders for each activity to keep things organized!

Hi there! I took a break from illustrating with my Shi for a little bit and I'm recently getting back into it. I see the admin team has udpated a lot and I'm excited to see such an organized layout! I had a question regarding Traversing:

From what I remember we had to depict an item from the bazaar and from what I see above that seems to be true. Which bazaar items do we reference? I can only find a scouting bazaar but I wanted to make sure it was the same since I don't see the Hawthorne Berries in there as used in the example text above.

Thank you for your time!

Hey there!

You still need to depict an item, yes-- An item that the shi depicted can logically bring back for their level and location! As for the Bazaar, you can find a master journal with a link to it, the Sky Isle Bazaar, and the Marketplace, on our front page under Resources, listed as 'Plaza Navigation'!

Are multiple hunting rolls in one deviation acceptable? For example I have an idea where I draw a prey in the middle and the same Shi hunts the prey from multiple sides. Say I draw her 4 times, can that image be rolled 4 times? And if so, how should i let the admins know theyre multiple rolls of the same Shi in one image ?

Sorry but a shi can only be rolled once per image! If you want to draw the same shi you'll have to submit her in separate images in order for her to be rolled.

I currently don't own a Shi (Ive been waiting for the "right one" and been waiting to try rogue again for a feral ^^; ) but Ive been participating in events and adventures by using Royal Shi.
In this case, should I alternatively make a tracker for my rider instead :o ? (Granted I won't be earning any Ep but for the sake of being able to roll while participating in H/F/T and adventure)

You wont actually submit them to the activity folder, you will submit to the respected folder based on your activity image. If you are submitting a Hunting image for example, you will submit the image to the Hunting folder within the group.

Let me know if that works for you!
