Starter Tokotas

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 12, 2016, 11:46 AM




What does "Starter" mean?


"Starter" tokotas have no given lineage and are often the founders of certain genes, mutations or manes. Starters with this badge are owned by the group and thus have special exemptions to certain rules.

What's the difference between a starter and a member-owned Tokota?


  • Starter tokotas have unlimited lifetime breeding slots.
  • Starters will appear in the lineages of abandoned puppies and semi-customs, but breedings are only given through contests and other group events.
  • Starter tokotas may be drawn by anyone, without requiring permission of the group.
  • Breedings involving a Starter (posted by you) do not add to your monthly limit of breedings.
  • Starter tokotas may exhibit markings, traits, mutations and items not yet able to be obtained within the group.
  • Starter tokotas are permanently owned by the group and will never be for sale, nor owned by a member.
  • A Starter will provide a 2+ HP bonus to Tokotas in any image in which he/she is depicted.
  • Starter tokotas cannot earn prey or exploration items.
  • For the Rites of Fertility, you can often use a Starter tokota instead of a handler.
  • Storyline-wise, all Starter tokotas are owned by the TCA and are wild-roaming.


This journal is meant to provide a list of all official starter Tokotas. Alternatively, you can view them in these folders.



The Original Twenty


These Tokotas were the foundation of the group, posted on June 16th, 2014.
All of the following Tokotas are sterilized; though they may still be used by admins to
fill semi-custom lineages, they will no longer be available for breedings.

Quick question: I want to use a starter toko for a story line involving my own tokos, but it would also involve the startet being ridden/interacted with by humans. Would that be okay canon/lore-wise?

Do the spirits count for the starter bonus as well? (Like Aga, Sikrinerk etc.)

Not for the starter bonus, no. They are not starters. However, it was posted in the News and Updates on 1/6/18 that we've added a brand new bonus for the deities.

Hierarchy Updates:
  • We have a a shiny new HP bonus - Lore Bonus! Including any of our glowing spirit friends in your submissions is now worth an extra 2HP

Fenrir isn't Alpha - he's Dominant. Check his background, check his hierarchy status. None of these starters listed here on this journal are on the Alpha background. Rainwater is currently the only one who is Alpha, even though she (and the other Summer Event starters) aren't listed here, so she would likely count for both Alpha and Starter HP bonuses.

two questions > <

one
do we need to get permission to breed with a starter, or would we simply post it?

two
would we get the full liter or just PotL?
Reply
:iconcani-bal:
Cani-bal Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
No, you can't post a breeding to a starter without a permission written.


It depends on what the permissions says. If it's just a PotL slot, you'd get only one pup (unless it's a split PotL slot). If it's a full slot you get all of the pups.

You can't request them.
You either win them from a starter slot raffle (but as far as i know, there haven't been any recently.), buy one from sales (that an admin is hosting), win one from a contest, or some other thing.

Question: Can someone just make a Toko or do they have to be purchased through breeding and stuff? I'm confused.
Cause I want one, but I don't know how get one, and I don't just want any.
Reply
:iconcani-bal:
Cani-bal Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Tokotas are a closed species, meaning you cannot make one without the owner/creator's permission. So you can't make your own. They CAN be purchased from other members if you check the advertisements folder. 
Newbie Resources and Getting Started <--- If you read through that you should understand how to get one for free :)

Out of curiousity why are tokos not allowed to have the same name as a starter? Seems kind of silly considering how fenrir is a really popular name and its confined to a single toko. :c

Is Fenrir not a starter? It's in his description but not sure.
Asking cuze a friend wants to name there tokota Fenrir and I told them you cant use starter names, then realized he's not on here. So idk whether theyre allowed to use that name or not.

  • Tokotas cannot share the exact spelling of names taken by starter/Noebelle tokotas. This is to avoid confusion. If you wish, you can add variations, like Amaroq instead of Amarok.
Fenrir isn't listed as a starter on this journal, true. That's because he's a special starter who will never be put into semicustom lineages, among other things. However, he is still technically a starter, and also owned by Noebelle. Therefore no, your friend cannot name their tokota Fenrir. Any other Fenrirs in the gallery are most likely a mistake, or were added before the rule was in place.

Starter Tokotas have unlimited lifetime breeding slots.
Breedings involving a Starter (posted by you) do not add to your monthly limit of breedings.


If you mean these two parts, you might have gotten that wrong.

It means starters aren't limited to the usual fixed amount of breedings. They do not have limitations. Plus, if you do a breeding involving a starter, it does not count to your monthly limit of 3 breedings you can post.

So you can't simply use two starters to breed. They are only to be used for (semi-)customs and/or contest/event prizes.
