T H E  N O O K


Welcome to Felvargs official design resource guide.

This guide will work as a home hub for all things design related. Please be mindful that these resources were created for official members of Felvargs, please respect our species and community. These resources are not free and cannot be used outside of their official purposes.




FELVARGS IMPORT DATABASE SYSTEM


THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim Every design being submitted to the group must have a completed Information Template Form filled out entirely and visible within the completed designs stash file details. Designs submitted to The Nook will be sent to corrections without a form present.

Template Download: Standard Build (GOOGLE DRIVE) by TheNook Template Download: Titan Build (GOOGLE DRIVE) by TheNook Template Download: Brute Build (GOOGLE DRIVE) by TheNook Template Download - Dwarf by TheNook

Physical mutations are also provided in the above google drive hubs!

THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim Question about saturation and marking color choice? Look no further!: Guide: Saturation and Natural Colors



Base coat color determines the color of your Felvargs foundation. The chosen base coat color must reflect against your official genotype.

Silver - Swatch

(ss inactive - Ss active - SS dominant)

Cream - Swatch

(cr inactive - Cr active - CR dominant)

Brown - Swatch

(br inactive - Br active - BR dominant)

Black - Swatch

(bk inactive - Bk active - BK dominant)

__________



Specialty base colors are hereditary and can only be obtained by breeding with specific Felvargs who carry the coat mutation. Specialty base coats are a spin off/mutation of a usual coat color and are extremely rare.

Dusk Silver - Swatch

(DSs) Obtain? Breed DSs to Ss/SS/DSs

Fawn Cream - Swatch

(FCr) Obtain? Breed FCr to Cr/CR/FCr.

Fox Brown - Swatch

(FBr) Obtain? Breed FBr to Br/BR/FBr

Midnight Black - Swatch

(MBk) Obtain? Breed MBk to Bk/BK/MBk

__________



Base coat modifiers are uncommon, they alter the base coat color to a different swatch depending on what base coat modifier is present.

Ashen

(Ash active) (ASH dominant)

Dilute

(Lu active) (LU dominant)

Obtaining both Ashen and Dilute on the same genostring creates a mutated base coat modifier. This mutated modifier is known as Helix.

Specialtyb By Yamashta-daoqq4y by Ulfrheim Helix

(Hel active) (HEL dominant) - Guide: Helix

Base Modifier: Ashen / Dilute by TheNook


Expression markings are entirely optional but allow members to customize their Felvargs.

Free Black, White, Whiskers

Guide: Expression

Flesh, Eyes & Claws

While you are designing your Felvarg, you are allowed to choose eye, flesh, and claw color independently. Although the colors you pick must still be reasonably natural. Be mindful the pupil of your eye must remain solid black and a single color, if you choose to add multiple colors or make your eye glow/have a different pupil color, you will need an eye mutation kit to do so.

Physical Mutations V1 By Yamashta-daoos9i by Ulfrheim
Physical mutations are physical changes that are made directly to an official Felvarg import. They are titled mutations given they mutate the otherwise untouchable lineart by allowing extensions.

 Guide: Physical Mutations

Each physical mutation can be downloaded through the usual PSD download hub provided above.

Submissive Lines (Free)
Bobtail
Fanged
Claws
Feathered
Silken Cheeks
Flopped Ears

Physical mutations allow for an additional use to the item 'accessories', allowing for custom lineart for the above provided they meet the same general placement and concept. This means you can extend say Silken Cheeks, to allow the cheeks to drag on the ground, or perhaps alter Feathered to be more suitable for your current coat type.

Mutations are extremely rare marking modifiers, each mutation will have its own effects, these effects will be broken down in detail in each respected guide. Mutations are exceptionally rare and are not hereditary, this means obtaining one is purely luck of the draw.

Specialtyb By Yamashta-daoqq4y by Ulfrheim Defiance

(Def active) (DEF dominant)
The Defiance gene when present allows mutations present to show markings that would usually be shielded beneath the mutation, to now freely show above it.

Chimera - Guide

Chimera is a genetic mutation that causes two genotypes to present in the same Felvarg.


Albinism - Guide

Albinism causes the entire coat to take on a soft white hue, shielding all markings. Allows the Felvarg to have true red/pink eyes.


Cross - Guide

Cross mixes black and its crossed color together creating a very unique base coat shield. While cross covers most all markings some can show above it however it is optional to do so.

Cross Swatches (Click)



Melanism - Guide

Melanism causes the entire coat to take on thick black coat, shielding all markings. (Optional few show through!)
 

Leucistic - Guide

An extremely rare genetic mutation that causes the entire coat to take on soft creamy hues, altering the color of all markings to an off white/brown shade.


Seasonal Markings

Seasonal markings are earned during special events/seasons. They cannot be bred in the breeding roller outside of their season and during their season are applied to the breeding roller like normal.

Design Guide: Seasonal Markings


[LAYERS BUTTON HOLDER] Each marking available interacts with other markings differently, most importantly each marking can often appear above or below other markings. We have included a list of markings below, this list will clearly state which marking appears above or below each marking. Please read each category to better understand how markings work with one another.

Markings in this category cover all markings listed below them!

Layer the first category from top to bottom unless otherwise noted.
