Treasures

Start your own collection!
TWWM now offers treasures as a reward for your accomplishments in the game. These treasures do not have any effect on gameplay or your esk's appearance or abilities, they are just a fun thing to collect and show off in your player profile or trackers! You can earn treasures for participating in different areas of the game and for completing activities and quests. You do not need staff confirmation to receive these treasures — we trust you to collect treasures responsibly after fulfilling the requirements. Treasures are a token of gratitude for your activity in the group; they cannot be sold, traded, or given to other players. Treasures are tied to you (the player) and not to the esk you may have used to earn them, so they will not transfer to others with character ownership transfers.


Sprout 2 You can display your treasures in your player profile any way you like.

You can also display them in your trackers. For example, if you use your esk in a quest and received a treasure at the end you might want to place that treasure in that character's tracker as well as on your profile, or if you borrowed someone's esk in a quest you can give the treasure to an esk you earn later on. You can handle treasures in a more game-related way (collectibles) or you can use them in a more story-driven way (things your esk finds out in the world), we are not rigid about this and just want you to have fun with them in your own way!

Sprout 2 All treasures are obtainable by anyone and are not limited-time-only!

You will not miss out on any treasures if you are new to the game or missed an event deadline. When a prompt expires or event passes the associated bonuses are no longer available but you are still able to use the prompts and event activities to unlock these treasures without any time restrictions. Comment on this journal if you are unsure if you qualify for any of the badges and the TWWM team will assist you.

This feature is still in development
There are many more treasures to come! I am also in the process of integrating treasures into existing info pages (Newcomers guide, suggestion box, etc) and making this page visible on the front page, thank you for your patience during updates.
I will continue to ensure that all badges are obtainable by all players new and old, thanks! —witherlings 



Pixel gemstones - Beryl green Treasure Trove

You must fulfill the listed requirements before claiming your treasures! Players are expected to collect treasures honestly — you do not need staff approval in order to place the treasures you earn into your profile or trackers. If you are ever unsure if you meet the requirements just comment on this entry and staff will confirm for you.

Remember:
even if the events these treasures are tied to have closed, you are still able to complete the event's activity to unlock its treasure! Some treasures have simple requirements like "submit a haiku" — this does not mean you have to submit a new haiku if you have already done so; if you already meet the treasure requirement go ahead and claim it!
Click the green links under each treasure to get more information on how to unlock them

im new and stupid so bear with me please lol. i have read through the newcomers guide, and at the bottom is said I could collect a wobbly plant thingy. do I need to set up a tracker first? do I need to have an esk to make a traker? I'm sorry, this is my fist ARPG I'm trying and its a bit complicated

tayleaf's avatar

Sorry this wasn't answered!! If you read the newcomers guide, it says in there that you do need to set up a tracker first and get to 100AP before you can make your first esk!

By reading that guide, you unlocked the wobbly plant achievement, which you can add to your tracker! They're like fun little collectables, but you don't HAVE to add it.

If you have more questions don't hesitate to reply, or join the discord server for the game, its way faster replies on there!

Candelee's avatar
im new. very confused. ive been in love with these designs and aesthetic for so long and when an esk was finally dropped at my door i have no clue. so we just. copy/paste the treasure where we like? yes?
KaijuRomance's avatar
Hello Candelee!

Welcome to the group c:

To get started, I recommend you read our newcomers guide: fav.me/dbixt31

This will inform you on how to play this ARPG, the lore, species guidelines, etc.

These treasures and badges listed here need to be earned, you can't just add them to your profile if you haven't fulfilled the requirements(listed under the treasure and badges) .

If you have any further questions, let us know!
Candelee's avatar
Im sorry if i didnt explain. Yes i did i read through the newcomer thing and found wobble plant. Thats why im asking if i add the acheivement.
KaijuRomance's avatar
Oh, treasures and badges are added to your player profile once you have earned them! c:

I happened to stumble upon this pretty trinket by accident:
Abalone shell by Esk-Masterlist

The thing is I can't for the life of me find it mentioned anywhere in the list of treasures. =0 Is there any way to earn it?
callmeFlo's avatar
hey there! nice catch :b I think it's been uploaded early by accident, and hasn't been assigned a use yet~ we'll add it to the treasures journal when it's able to be earnt! <33
hitodama89's avatar
I have a question about the requirements of Biome badges! I took part in the Shattered Peaks quest and the third entry contained an arid, mountainous environment. (This is my entry, if you want to see: TWWM Shattered Peaks Quest: Where the River Ends) I already took the Mountain Biome bonuses for it, so that in mind would I also be able to claim the Arid Biome badge with the same picture or not?
KaijuRomance's avatar
If you mean the arid bottle treasure, you may claim that for your artwork as it also takes place in the arid biome!
hitodama89's avatar
Okay, thank you; that's exactly what I meant! = ) I only now realized I called it a badge by accident...
tiffmagius's avatar
hi this sounds silly but I couldn't figure out how to add my birthday,
and I think I may have accidently set it to today? I tried going to next year's
date and couldn't find anywhere to put it, so I just though I ha dto go to it and then press today.
hitodama89's avatar
You don't do it through the calendar, actually! There's a link below the calendar that takes you to a separate form that lets you add your birthday. =>
tiffmagius's avatar
oh my gosh thank you, I didn't see that 'here' was unlined! I was trying to look for a bigger link or something
WolfSoldier89's avatar
For the Forest Friend one, does the free request post need to be a journal or would posting in the discord be acceptable? 
Nairo-Ryu's avatar
discord posts will work : )
aracollie's avatar
Wouldn't be any treasures from eskplorers? It'd be nice to get a... "Old Camera" if you participed on Eskplorers <3
Also, if you accept suggestions for new tresures: Original form drawed, Pride Month, Resources Donator, Member's Proyects Participant (like Mar Calendar, Tarot proyect, MAP...) ...
And finally, there are some badges that are not depicted on this journal, like Featured Artist/Writer/character, and volunteer and creator (Would be nice to have all the badges here with a description of how you could get them)
witherlings's avatar
We do not generally accept photography submissions in the group other than some forms of photomanipulations... submissions in the style of Eskplorers which feature items/plants without any esk or TWWM context would not be permitted in the group outside of events. The problem with this is that all treasures are designed to be retroactively obtainable, and in this case anyone who wasn't available during Eskplorers would be unable to claim the treasure. I understand that it would be fun to get treasures for every event but in order to make this feature as inclusive as possible we only offer treasures for events that allow for ongoing participation. Hope this makes sense and is fair :]

Badges that can only be obtained from admins are listed here: esk-masterlist.deviantart.com/
This is indicated in the information above the badges listed above ^ 
"Certain badges can only be distributed by TWWM team members!Featured Artist, Featured Writer, and Featured Character can only be received directly from staff members. Creator badges can only be received from Transformation approvals. There is a guide to these badges on the Esk-Masterlist front page (bottom left)."

This treasure/badge page is intended to be a "self-serve" page for players to copy-paste badges from and I intentionally left the admin-distributed badges out because they are not supposed to be copy-pasted from here, they should only be obtained through comments or notes from the staff. The link is listed here so anyone interested in information on these badges can find it. I also like that this page is about treasures/badges that anyone can obtain just by playing the game and not having to level up (transformation badge) or hope to be selected for features.
If enough people suggest that these badges be added I will consider changing it, but for the time being I like the fact that this page is about treasures/badges that are available to everyone at any time without needed to gain AP or spend GP — just rewards for playing the game at any rank :] I hope you find this to be fair, but I am still open to ongoing feedback on this subject.

Thank you for the suggestions for new treasures, I will pass them along and review them for our next update :]

aracollie's avatar
A clear and reasoned explanation, as always wither, thanks for the explanation: it's true that I hadn't thought that eskplorers was something "abnormal" as an event ^^
I understand the official badges abstence on this journal too, what you say makes sense.
Then, finally, I was not sure if the suggestions of treasures is better put here, or in the journal of suggestions (in case someone or I want to propose new trophies, where would be the best to go?)
Thank you very much for reading and the clear answer!
witherlings's avatar
Suggestion Box is probably best because we comb through it on a regular basis :]
thanks!

Darn those biome treasures are pretty! =O But hey, do you get to collect them from art that includes Esk's previous form? Or only from art that includes Esk in Esk form?
