WELCOME TO STYGIANS



Stygians is an OPTIONAL ARPG. hat means you can own a Stygian, not participate in the ARPG, and just revel in the joy of having a Stygian (though we do recommend you register on site too so you can also revel in the joy of having that Stygian(s) in your site profile). A big part of Stygians is their collectable aspect, and Stygian are more than happy to just be as they were created without any additional effort required to maintain them!

However, if you want to participate and do more in the ARPG, there are plenty of options below! Participating in the ARPG will let you modify your Stygian, give them upgrades, collectables, and even make new Stygian MYOs for FREE. It is currently the ONLY way to get FREE MODIFICATIONS, UPGRADES and MYOs.



DON'T HAVE A STYGIAN?
We got your back! Check out our MYO QUEST for all first time owners! It's free, it's always available, and will always guarantee you an MYO Stygian of your design! Just click the button to proceed!





I'M NOT INTERESTED IN THE ARPG ASPECT:

Then you're done the newbie guide, phew, nice and simple! We still recommend you register on the site (STEP 0) so you can reap all the rewards passively, and also enjoy all your Stygians on your site profile</b>. Think of this as "saving your progress" for anything you do in the Stygians game! Then, you are free of the burdens of Stygians until you're ready, otherwise feel free to progress from Step 0 onwards!


STEP 0: REGISTER ON THE STYGIANS SITE



Think of this as "saving your progress" for anything you do in the Stygians game! Just click the button to proceed!







STEP 1: GENERAL STYGIANS INFO:



What are Stygians, what is the nightmare world, who am I? I can answer exactly two of these questions, which you can find in the handy link below! Just a note: you don't need to read the full species guide, this guide is something just short of an encyclopedia, this is just more for knowledge if you ever want to go back and look at anything interesting about Stygians.




STEP 2: WELCOME TO STYGIANS WELCOME PACK:


Now that you registered on the site, let's first pick up a starter pack for you! This welcome pack comes with some goodies that you can use in the ARPG, feel free to manage or click on the items to learn more about them! You may also see other gifts open time to time, though the starter park is always a permanent one time per account bonus!



Just click on the button to pick up your free gifts!


STEP 3: QUESTING:



Earn plenty of fancy bonuses by questing! Questing is where you can draw and/or write about your Stygians and get site currencies for doing so. These currencies can be exchanged for a variety of special prizes, here's some fun things upgrades can do, but are not limited in doing:



  • :star: Upgrade the look of your Stygian and give them rarer traits or a redesign!
  • :star: Change the subspecies of your Stygian or give them another form entirely!
  • :star: Earn more MYOs to create more Stygian or sometimes even Treat/Treatlings
  • :star: Upgrade your Stygian to a legendary status
  • :star: Exchange your tokens for fancy prizes, or even trade tokens/items with other users



STEP 4: Enjoy and have fun

! If you're looking for a good place to start after reading all this info, why not get started on some of the options below! Here's a link to each to get started! It will show all the mechanics and activities on site too, and how to manage them all!



That's it! There are a lot of fun site features you can read on if you have the time, but you're not pressured to immediately Feel free to join our discord too if you have any other questions, and there's always users willing to help you out and friendly mods as well - we even host minigames sometimes for discord giveaways!

what does the 'a' in 'arpg' stand for?
stygianlist's avatar
The 'a' stands for 'art'!

Just meaning that artwork and writing used to tell our stories.

Does your Figment's design have to match the MYO you make? The wording on the quest isn't actually clear on that and I was under the impression that the figment should be a simple throwaway design but I'm seeing people use their actual first Styg for the Figment Quest.
Meroviathan's avatar
Hey there! I sincerely apologize for the delay in getting back to you, we typically answer questions over on the { Questions, Suggestions, Bugs! } Event claims! page or our discord (which receives a much faster answer!).

In regards to Figments, when you create a Figment it becomes your first Stygian. Figment's Quest is all about experimenting though, so you can see wildly varying designs throughout the quest... or people who stick with one design throughout the whole thing. If you're torn between several different designs, then Figment's Quest is the best place to try out all the different variations you can come up with before settling on one (and/or keeping the other designs for future stygian!)

Whew, that was a bit wordy. Was this helpful?

Very helpful! Yes thank you <3
