Handler and Rider Rules
Due to certain complications and confusion regarding handlers in the past, this guideline has been written to help you determine what is and is not acceptable as a handler/rider for events where handlers are required and for handler HP bonuses. You have a very wide range of artistic freedom for handlers, but due to effort-based rules, we do need to impose certain limitations. General Handler Rules Your handler must be capable of actually handling the Tokota. Can a basketball logically hold a lead rope and calm a scared or angry horse-sized beast? No. It must be sentient (able to feel, perceive, or experience subjectively), with at least some
Non-Physical Traits
Traits are permanently attached to your Tokota, and provide a number of advantages. There are different methods of earning traits. A Tokota can have a maximum of seven traits at Submissive and Average and can have ten traits maximum at Dominant and Alpha. An extra trait slot is purchasable in the bank for an Elemental Heart at the Soul Pool. This limit only counts towards hereditary non-physical traits. Physical Traits, Merit Traits, Alpha Traits and those purchased from the Soul Pool do not count against your available trait slots. If you have a trait you no longer wish to make use of you can replace them with a new trait, but you will not
Taming a Wild Tokota [OLD]
Wild Pack Information Interaction Levels Taming a tokota is a dangerous, and delicate business. Due to a high concentration of domesticated blood in certain overpopulated wild packs, the TCA and local authorities have allowed the taming of certain individuals. Taming is done at the risk of the handler, and can result in injury. The TCA takes no responsibility for these claims. The Process The Wild tokotas gallery folder includes all of the current and past wild tokotas. The currently available tokotas are listed in the Wild Packs journal. These are the tokotas available to tame. Each of these individuals may be tamed by anyone, be it memb

Adoption Center Puppies by TotemSpirit

Adoption requests are currently OPEN



New to Tokotas and looking for a pup? You've come to the right place! Adoption is completely FREE!
Want to learn more about tokotas? Read more here!


Adoption Requests

In order to request a geno from the Adoption Center, please read the following:
  • Adoption requests are free and only available to members without tokotas.
    • You must be new to the group, own no uploaded tokotas or genos, are not currently working on a payment for a tokota, and have no breedings coming in.
    • Your account must have been active for at least one month before you are eligible to adopt; active = populated with journals/deviations/comments of substance.
  • You may only adopt 1 geno.
    • Make sure to include a second choice in case your first is already taken.
    • Include the numbers (ex. TU34, BR45) in the first column with your choices.
  • Choose the geno you would like from the list of available genos
    • In the sheet there are five tabs - Tundra, Tawny, Brown, and Black, and SPECIAL NEEDS. You can pick from any of these five tabs!
    • SPECIAL NEEDS genos include tokotas that are inbred or born with physical limitations. This includes blind, deaf, and spinal injuries (cannot be ridden) tokotas. Some of these defects will affect certain areas of gameplay including activities and breeding. Please read over the descriptions of each physical limitation before adopting these tokotas!
    • Genos marked in yellow are Average!
    • Can't decide on a geno? Say "Choose for me, please!" instead of listing your choices and our Adoption Center staff will pair you up with a geno! Please note: If you choose this option, you will not have a say over which geno you receive and you may not swap our choice out for a different geno.
  • Once you own a geno it is yours to do as you wish with it. However, you may not sell your Adoption Center geno or tokota without first adding value to it, e.g. a design, additional artwork, etc.
  • Make sure to save your proof of adoption comment that the admins give you. It will be required for Design Central and Design Requests.
  • Reply to this comment with form below:


First Choice Geno: include number (TU2, BR32, etc) and full geno

You'll need to read the journals to understand how to play the game. ;u; So I would suggest not skipping over things.

To sum it up, you would look through our list of available genos and reply to this comment with your choices using the form we've provided. However, I've looked at your account, and I'm afraid you're not currently eligible to adopt a geno from the Adoption Center. Your account needs to be at least one month old and needs to have been active (posted comments, deviations, journals, etc) for at least one month in order to be eligible. So I'm afraid you'll have to wait. ;w;

I'm a bit confused. Is this docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d…
really all the geno's I can adopt? If so why do I see people adopting geno's with Id's starting with TA and BR. From what I see the list only has Id's starting with TU.

LittleKhajiit's avatar
LittleKhajiit|Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, that's the correct list. There are different tabs at the bottom of the sheet that separate the available genos by their base coats.
- TU is Tundra
- TA is Tawny
- BR is Brown
- BL is Black

There is also a Special Needs tab for genos with special needs/defects.

also does the admin have to design my first tokoto or can I just get the genome and draw them myself to the genomes specifications? 
Reply  ·  
TokoTime's avatar
You can design it yourself. However, you must use the official import lines. You cannot just draw it. All tokotas have to be designed on the official lines.

Hello!~ I was going to adopt one, but I had a quick question, please forgive me if I read over it, but how do we know what breed of Tokota it is? Does it say in the genotype or, I'm just a bit confused. ^^'

LittleKhajiit|Hobbyist General Artist
Yep, you would know by looking at the geno. c: It would tell you if the geno was a toki (it'd list dwarfism), a dire (it would say "dire" and list the percentage), or an akota (it would simply say "akota"). If none of those are listed, you have a standard tokota. For example:

Standard, normal build tokota

Male, Natural Mane

Average - Healthy
Ee/aa/tt/MM/CC/AA/nG/nSd
Marked collared greying black with accents and saddle


Toki - lists DWARFISM

Male, Natural Mane

Average - Healthy
DWARFISM
Ee/aa/tt/MM/CC/AA/nG/nSd
Marked collared greying black with accents and saddle


Dire - lists DIRE and the percentage

Male, Natural Mane
Average - Healthy
10% DIRE
Ee/aa/tt/MM/CC/AA/nG/nSd
Marked collared greying black with accents and saddle


Akota - lists AKOTA

Male, Natural Mane
Average - Healthy
AKOTA
Ee/aa/tt/MM/CC/AA/nG/nSd
Marked collared greying black with accents and saddle

Are those genos really available? Some of them seem to be very old and I don't want to adopt something without seeing it first...
