micro-update; 150 Members!, Breeding opening soon!,

150+ Members!
Welcome to all our new friends! We hope you have a great time developing your characters!
With the Tarkee group breaching 150 members, the 150 Member Raffle will be closing very soon! This will be open until around this time tomorrow (~24 hours from now) just to let any last-minute entries through. So if you haven't had the chance to join and want to, do so!
The 200 member raffle is still open and accepting people to enter and will continue to do so until we reach 200+ members :)

Breeding Season opening soon
Reminder that Breeding Season will open next week on the 1st of June. Get your breeding plans ready if you plan on submitting then!
Also as a mini reminder, see the previous update for Seasonal Breeding Limits :) They've been increased as it was too hard to track otherwise!
Instead of Females once and Males twice per SEASON, it's been opened to Females once and Males twice per MONTH (3 and 6 breedings per season, respectively). This mechanic is still in the works and may be tweaked again in future :)

Keep hydrated, and get some rest! Rest is so important!


Personal Update: For those interested, ClarityWind is due to birth almost any day now! Baby is due in 3 weeks! Larger updates and implementations will be slow around this time and I hope you all understand as to why! All core things will be kept running including Activity Rolls, Trips, Breeding, Levelling, Adoptions, etc. So don't let that stop you!

We're close to re-opening The Pit, finally. But unfortunately Abilities are still not polished. We may end up with a half-finished system for this, or a major simplification as it's getting overly complicated for my poor, pregnant brain.

4th April, 2019


Breeding Closed and micro update, Clans, In-the-works

I totally didn't forget to update ya'll!

Breeding Seasons
Breeding Season has now closed for a couple of months. The next season is June -> July, so plenty of time to get your Tributes in the works for next time!
As a micro-reminder, Starters/Ancestors are NOT affected by Breeding Seasons. If you have 2 starter slots, they can breed out of season - any time. And never require Tribute! ALL the bonuses!
Also also, Giant Hares are not affected by seasons at all and can breed anytime.

As a small update to the Seasons, previously females could breed once and males breed twice per season. This has caught me up a few times and I forget to check - so it's been increased to once per month for females, and twice for males.

Clans
It's been a while, but Clans have finally been implemented in the group! Have a group of Tark'ee with another person, or a group of people, and want to build it up together and get sweet prizes for it? Then maybe try out Clans!
Keep in mind there is a Silver 'start up cost' associated.
There's 3 journals associated with Clans so far - feel free to check them out!

In-the-works
Abilities - those who have been with us since the beginning are probably tired of me going on and on about abilities. Whelp - too bad. We're making great progress! This project is much more extensive than initially thought and so is taking time. But the basics are there! And with that, The Pit will open when we have them all implemented properly - featuring a group-wide event! Yay!

Want to start planning where you'll go with your Abilities?
Physical Abilities are based mostly on the Physical stats (Strength, Defence, Dexterity)
However there are Elemental Abilities! This will be based on the Intelligence stat heavily! So throw stats to Intelligence if you want some magical abilities!
As a lore note (which has function in the group), Rock Tark'ee are, in general, not good with Elemental Abilities due to the Rock Father not having a connection to the Ethereal Plain.

Elemental Abilities include (possibly to be re-named)
- Fire, Wind, Water, Nature, Electricity, Earth, Wind.
- Life and Death (constructive and destructive)


Blessings
Some of you, very few, would already hold a Deity Blessing. These were given out as a reward early on for extraordinary participation in group events. However it was always intended as something to achieve later on. Every Tark'ee has a chance to obtain a Blessing from their Deity.
Originally, each could only get a Blessing from their 'natural' Deity (eg,  Wave Tark'ee getting Blessed by the Wave Father) - however, in the spirit of personal character development and uniqueness, every Tark'ee may earn a Blessing from ANY Deity!
The current Blessings in peoples Vaults are not bound.
All future Blessings will be bound to a specific Tark'ee and is not transferable. The Guides for these Blessings are SO CLOSE to being finished! They're just being fine-tuned.
As a heads up - appealing to the Deities will require a Tark'ee to be Level 10, and complete prompts. These prompts will NOT count for XP (to prevent abuse) and give some sweet-as-heck unique rewards to the Blessed Tark'ee!

Keen to be Blessed by a Deity? Start working towards that 10th Level!


~Remember to stay hydrated, take your medication, and eat something. Something is better than nothing :)

We honour old designs, regardless :) So your beautiful illegal custom is able to move onto the new base if you want, and you keep the design.
You're also allowed to keep Hyst on the old base that he's currently on. You don't HAVE to move over to new bases.


Basically, for anyone who wants to move their old Tark'ee to the new bases can do so if they want but they don't have to. If you choose to move a Tark'ee to the new base, you MUST keep the old design as true as possible. There may also be an item in the near-ish future which will allow players to redesign an uploaded Tark'ee.

A "I'm gonna breed now, but questions!?"
...
Question:
Do they still need to do their trials before breeding?
Or was that not needed anymore?


Also, is there a gender switch? (Wants DK and Covack breed= both dudes)
Reply
:icontarkeetales:
TarkeeTales Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, everything else about breeding has remained the same. Trials are still needed and Breeding Badges need to be obtained before Tark'ee can breed.

There is not currently a gender-switch, but there may be an item in future which allows same-sex couplings producing offspring.

We may need people to go through the group once we're almost finish to help point out some of the more obvious mistakes we've made (spelling, ugh!) or even let us know if things aren't easy to find or follow.

Yes :)
Marking guide will stay pretty much as it is. However coat colours and mutations are going to be segregated by species. 
Rosedraq has been working on updating these guides for the group.

so what would a rare trait be for the sneks
Reply
:icontarkeetales:
TarkeeTales Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The 'rarity' of certain mutations for the sneks is entirely dependent on what they are bred with. 
So for the purpose of your custom, you'd choose a base (Feathered for Flight, Flippered for Wave, Membrane for Rock, and Standard for Earth) and use those mutation rarities to determine what's what.

pfffffffffffffffffft.
I'm a silly. 
Whelp! Just do as you did :D


Just making sure you are aware - you can have up to 10 traits. You currently have 3 common (sail mutations) and 1 plentiful marking. 

So you have 3 plentiful, 2 uncommon and 1 rare marking/mutation left that you may add to your Tark'ee.
If this is fine and you're certain about your current design, then it is confirmed and will be uploaded :)

So will the rites of passage be discussed?
Reply
:icontarkeetales:
TarkeeTales Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Discussed how?
Are you meaning player input on what the rites will be?

Because I did plan on some input :) I need to make a poll about it later and request people to place their input in :) 

However it will likely be 3-4 images and each will have a requirement that will need to be filled. 
The exact requirements can be suggested by members. 
Each image will be able to have 4 Tark'ee completing their rites at the same time.

ok, thats what I wanted to know, by discussed  I meant was there anything that had been written out about it before you wrote it here
(btw, did you get the last two attacks in for Karr and Vera accounted for? I never saw a damage comment for them and it was far before you posted the end
Reply
:icontarkeetales:
TarkeeTales Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No :) It was not written out before it was written here. 
There were going to be group-wide effects one way or another, and this was planned to be implemented regardless.

Both your attacks for Karr and Vera are still there in the notifications and will be rolled before prizes are calculated. 
Prizes will be handed out and rolled for within 2 weeks, I just need to tweak some things on the prizes before I can hand them out officially.

Anyone can adopt a new Tarkee from the AC from now until the first of Dec? 
Reply
:icontarkeetales:
TarkeeTales Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes.
If you have already adopted you are able to adopt 1 additional from the Center until the 1st of December. 
If you have not already adopted from the center, your adoption will not remove your token (or you can adopt 2)

Noooooo!!!!! I must attack Fari!!!!
I can do that now?
Reply
:icontarkeetales:
TarkeeTales Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Fari has not entered the fray due to the other attackers not being pacified earlier. 
Fari's plan was to use the four attackers as a diversion, as well as to inflict greater damage to the planet of Dondir. 
The attackers were not defeated, and so Fari was able to carry out his plan. Dondir will suffer consequences as a result.


You may draw your Tark'ee attacking Fari if you wish. However there is no reward for this as he never entered the event.

The genos from player breeding rolls are safe (I'm not that cruel xD). However anything in the Adoption Center which has not been claimed by the 1st of December is at risk of the random number generator. 
This includes game-bred and player-bred Tark'ee which are in the Adoption Center.

But if it's not in the AC, then it's not at risk.
