Wanderer Transformations provide a new way for players to use their Transformation slots. Transformation slots are still unlocked normally at Blossom, Tree, Nature Spirit, and at AP milestones beyond Nature Spirit, but if you do not own an esk to do a Transformation with, or if you prefer to have a new esk created by a Wanderer instead of an esk you own, these prompts will provide you an opportunity to have a Wanderer be the creator when you do a Transformation. Wanderer Transformations also give players a chance to create esk similar to the story MYOs available in the Greenhouse, but by working at their own pace and customizing their trait selections.

QUICK LINKS

New Growth Button by dualscepters The Wanderer Transformations have now been expanded!
Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! You can now use the same Wanderer for multiple Wanderer Transformations. Just remember that each Transformation will use up one of your Transformation slots, and each Transformation will require a new set of prompt artwork.
Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! Wanderer Transformations now allow multiple Transformation tiers. Doing just one Wanderer Prompt will now earn you a common esk - but completing all six of a Wanderer’s Prompts will earn you either an abnormal Transformation (the nature spirit player level is required for abnormal transformations) or an elemental to add on to a rare tier esk.
Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! A Wanderer can now be used to re-transform an existing esk into an abnormal.
Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! Wanderer Transformations now allow an optional add-on of a familiar/swarm, accessory, or enchantment if you do 3 or more prompts.

Please honor the Wanderers’ concepts provided by maintaining the character's integrity, appearance, and lore in your works. Please make sure you read their individual weebly profiles closely to understand their motivations and characters before beginning your Wanderer Prompts. Be sure to check the Wanderer Transformations Hub which explains who or what each Wanderer will transform, their motivations, and other related information before beginning your esk's origin story.

Each Wanderer Prompt earns a +10AP bonus that stacks onto the +20AP NPC bonus for a total of extra 30AP per prompt submission!

There is no extra GP bonus for Wanderer Prompts because featuring player-owned esk is optional.


  • Artwork must be in color with a full-body character and a simple to full background that shows a clear environment unless otherwise specified.
  • Writing must be 800 words or longer unless otherwise specified.
  • Comics, crafts, animations, and other mediums are all acceptable but may need eligibility review from the TWWM team. Please send us a group note and we will help you out!
  • Finished Wanderer Prompt entries must be submitted and accepted to the Wanderer Prompts folder before posting your transformation info. (You can continue posting regular NPC artwork/writing to the normal gallery folders.)
  • For each Wanderer Transformation, you may complete any number of prompts in any order, but may not repeat prompts in the process. For example, you could do four prompts towards a Blessed transformation from Raaga, but each prompt used for that transformation must be different.
  • Commissions are allowed; only the buyer will fulfil the prompt and get the bonuses.
  • Collaborations are not accepted for this feature.
  • All prompts must prominently feature the Wanderer. 

Transformation Tiers

New Growth Button by dualscepters The Wanderer Transformations now allow you to create esk of any Transformation tier, including abnormals! The amount of prompts you complete determine the traits available to you.

Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! any single nature feature

Completing 2 prompts earns you a Spirited Transformation
Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! up to five uncommon traits
Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! any two nature features  

Completing 3 prompts earns you an Uncommon Transformation
Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! unlimited uncommon traits
Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! unlimited nature features

For example, if they were an object, then you can include elements of that object in their design without having to add an accessory modification. If they are an esk being re-Transformed, they should retain some colourings/markings/design elements that make them recognisable as their previous form.
Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! If you are doing an Abnormal Transformation on an existing esk, you are allowed to change aspects of their ID info including their origin, nature, boundary, biome, and size.
Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! OR any elemental power added on to a Rare Transformation
Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! optional familiar/swarm, accessory, or enchantment

Guidelines

  • If you complete at least one of a Wanderer’s prompts you will be eligible to use that Wanderer as a creator for a single Transformation slot. This does not generate an extra Transformation, it just grants you the ability to use that NPC as the creator of a new esk instead of having to use an esk you already own or have to do a swap to get into other biomes. This is also an opportunity for esk owners to explore new NPC-connected stories and a way for non-owners to use Transformation slots!
  • Wanderer Transformations do not cost any GP, as it is the Wanderer offering their power to do the Transformation.
  • The amount of prompts you complete determines the tier of Transformation you may create, and the traits available to you.
  • You must be at Nature Spirit level to unlock abnormal Wanderer Transformations - however, doing 6 prompts will earn you a rare tier esk with an elemental no matter your player level.
  • If you complete three or more Prompts, you have the option to include an accessory, familiar or swarm, or enchantment in your design. Familiars must fit the Wanderer’s biome.
  • All Wanderer Prompts submitted for a Transformation must be prompts for the same Wanderer. For example, you cannot submit 2 Aevre prompts and 2 Vetru prompts for a Transformation from Aevre.
  •  You can now use the same Wanderer for multiple Wanderer Transformations. Just remember that each Transformation will use up one of your Transformation slots, and you will need to do new artwork for the prompts each time.
  • Remember: The Wanderer Transformation will use up a Transformation slot like any other Transformation.
  • Wanderer Transformations follow the same trading rules as any other kind of Transformation MYO. You are allowed to gift them to others or swap for other Transformations or existing esk.
  • You can use your Transformation tier’s included traits or later use the Energy Exchange to make your MYO resemble that Wanderer's Greenhouse themes! For example, you can include sleek, bold markings, claws, and one bright marking as uncommon traits to replicate Aevre's South Circle story, or add a wintry elemental to match Seventh's Fell Through the Ice story. You are welcome to use the Greenhouse stories as inspiration for your character development.

since he has overgrowth it'd be great if a smaller image could be included here to show what his tail looks like out of biome - it can be just the tail or a smaller version of the fullbody c:

I know that Vetru isn't likely to give away lightning related elementals, but the backstory I had

mind involved Vetru accidentally zapping them down. Unable to really save the bird, Vetru transforms

them into an esk and grants the elemental power so that they would never again be hurt by lightning. • artist: haimatoloichos • designer: haimatoloichos

dinstraction's avatar

hi there! everything looks good here overall, I like your story idea and lighting elemental should work in this instance c:

I just have a note for you about your design! the nf hat looks too tightly bound and too accessory-like at the moment - it's more reminiscent of an actual straw hat rather than a part of the esk. you could change it into a wheat-like mane sort of like vetru's grass along their back, or maybe even take it off entirely for now. let me know what you think and if you have any other ideas or suggestions for what to do here!

also unfortunately the wheat can't stand up like your sketch there without a mutation, which are restricted to abnormal esk. just to let you know right away!


let em know if you have any questions or the like and I can approve this ID as soon as we fix this detail! c:

Haimatoloichos's avatar

I was kind of expecting both of the things you mentioned. Would I the "hat" be acceptable as an accessory if I were to add it later? It's supposed to be a wheat sheaf with a part left out so that they can see.

dinstraction's avatar

it could definitely be purchased as an accessory later, yes! so your plan for now is to leave it off entirely? c:

Haimatoloichos's avatar

I'll do that then. The hat is an important part of the design, so I'll add it as soon as possible when they're official. I'll get a masterlist image ready if everything is good then.


Edit: here's the suggested ML image. Link If everything is good, this will be the final ML image. Thanks for the help so far!

  • looks great! shaggy isn't needed for this design, so taking off that trait and the question mark. c;

  • right now the mid-tone eyes look a little too bright - if they could be the same duller green as on the fur that'd be great! the only other thing is that I'm not seeing the enchantment depicted here, it'll need to be clearly visible for the masterlist.

  • everything else is good to go! love your colour scheme -- greens and greys are my favourite so I'm particularly eyes emoji hahaha : D

Stunning!!! What a beautiful polar spook ;; ! (and your prompts are so good!)

-Removed heterochromia; this is only needed if one eye has two/split colors rather than each eye being a different color.

-I was wondering about the dynamic third eye and blaze; it's a really neat idea to just have a thin, slit-like marking on their forehead where the eye would be, but it appears a little bit loopholey as it reads like the eye has a lid that closes :< would it be possible to put a different marking in its stead? Perhaps a symbol that is there? Let me know your thoughts!
