Reoccuring Activities


Welcome to the groups reouccuring activities journal. This journal will update with the groups quest, storybook, and beast hunt. Please note the '' icon will display how many Felvargs may receive rewards from a single entry in each activity. Be mindful reoccurring activities can only host rewards for a single felvarg owned by a single user. If two Felvargs can participate in an event, the Felvargs must be owned by different players to both receive rewards. Although users may only receive rewards once, users may complete storybook entries on multiple Felvargs purely for the completion badge for each chapter.

The warmth of spring has come at last, ushering away the chill and bringing its gentle touches and sweet scents. It would seem that a cloud didn't dare to block the sunlight that cascaded across the island. The nights have seemed to extend the same courtesy, the warmth lingering in the air as the silver moonlight cast a gentle glow on everything that it touched. Estrid 109 can often be found sitting by Lake Lysa, her nose drifting towards the sky as she lovingly gazed at the sea of stars above her. Their reflection danced across the lake's surface, its gentle ripples bringing a whole new life to the world above you. The alpha spots you looking and calls you over, patting the soft grass beside her. "Come, little one, and gaze at the beauty of the stars with me," she said softly, nudging your shoulder as you settle in beside her. "Have I ever told you about the stars and how the came to be?" she asked, though waited for no reply before she moved onward. Quickly she launched into the tale of the stars and their constellations, on how she found her love for them and how she now tries to spread her knowledge to all who listen. You cannot help but be enthralled by her tales, as you too look skyward and at the stars above you. It was all too easy to forget about your woes as you basked under their gentle light, watching them ripple in the lake below. It doesn't take you too long to realise that the alpha had asked you a question, and you turn to blink at her. She lets out an all knowing giggle, her curled tail wiggling over her back. "What do you love about the stars? About a night like this?" You take a moment to pause, really pondering on this fact before daring to answer.

Objective(s):


Depict your Felvarg basking in the glow of the night with Estrid. Do they tell her about their favourite celestial body, or are they not at all interested in these things? Perhaps they just wish to enjoy the silent night with the star marked alpha instead?

Optional Bonus: Give Estrid a Crafted Spyglass for a 15% chance to obtain 1x Freyja's Lucky Dye.


Reward(s):


1x Long Lost Treasure, 5x Clover, 25% chance to receive 1x Bottled Wisp.






Beast: Hrmodr!



Requirements




Artwork: Lined, Colored, Shaded, Complex Background or Greater Quality

-or

Literature: 1,200 Wordcount+ (Collaboration: +200 WC)






"(Active) March 2nd 2022 - The fog that usually cloaks the Vale of Whispers had pulled back, revealing the lush growth of grasses and flowers that rest in the meadow. The great shadow of Hermodr can be seen across the plains, her body dotting the otherwise cloudless sky. She is here to visit her old friends, but has seemed to linger around the Vale for some reason. Those who run in her shadow may feel her talons playfully tickle at their scruff, a shrill call that nearly sounds like laughter following. Is the old bird here just to simply enjoy herself? They do say that racing in her shadow will bring you good luck, and it would appear that a number of Felvargs are here to test the legend. Hermodr seems to enjoy this game, her grand wings sweeping up pedals as she floats close enough to the ground that you can hear the wind whistle between her feathers. Can you keep up with her and stay in her shadow long enough to get her gift of luck?"


Objective(s):

Depict your Felvarg attempting to run within the shadow of Hrmodr for good luck this year.




Reward(s) For a Successful Tame:

1x BADGE, 1x Long Lost Treasure, 1x Hawk Egg, x5 Four Leaf Clovers, and 1x Go-Go Juice






Storybook: Voice of Reason

02-04-2022 - 02-24-2022



Requirements




Artwork: Lined, Colored, Shaded, Complex Background or Greater Quality (Location: The Weeping Oasis)

-or

Literature: 1,400 Wordcount+ (Collaboration: +200 WC) (Location: Open Choice)








Fenrir and the others are back at the cyclone, no one had bothered to mention how long this journey would take to the Weeping Oasis and you only just had a moment to realize you now had to go back the same way you came. How exhausting, at least you had a moment to appreciate the scenery and explore it fluidly enough for things to start to look familiar. The sun had began setting and soon darkness would consume Helvalla whole. Familiar or not Helvalla was no place to explore the forests in the dead of night. That was clear in the fact when night had set in the lands fell so quiet that even the chirps of the crickets would fall silence in fear had the breeze drawn direction too rapidly. Up ahead you spot a cave, trees split from its entrance almost shielding it from the blind eye and had one not explored it with intent to get inside it, it would have been completely missed. You turn to look behind you, its even darker now and whofel knows when you will have another opportunity like this to seek coverage from the bump in the Helvallian night. You're left with no choice but to:

STOP! At this stage you must choose option a or b before creating your entry!



A.) You're left with no choice but to take a risk and seek coverage. The cave's entrance is dark but you can see some light up ahead, this could be an unnatural light source or alternatively it could be the ground overhead splitting and causing the sunset to pour into the cave offering it some visual. You pause to listen, but the cave is dead silence, not a squeak not a whisper, not even the breeze could be felt while shielded within. The smell is musky and floral, while it's hard to see the cave is filled with foliage, flora, mushrooms, moss, it consumed the mouth and guts of the cave so much so, it was soft to the touch to step on the cool ground beneath your paws. It would make a soft place to lay your head but was it safe? You would later find out what the Mouth of Linnaea had to offer.



B.) You're left with no choice, the cave is dark and ominous and there is no way you could know if anyone resided inside, soon the night would draw in and with the cave would be in total darkness, your opponent(s) would have the upper paw, making it extremely difficult to defend yourself, the risk is too great. Carry on through the forest in Helvalla, while where you currently were filled the forest with beauty and grace, an abundance of flora, up ahead lie Myrkvidor, otherwise known as the Dark Woods, this forest had no need for such a name, anyone with eyes would call it such without reputation. The forest is dead, the trees so wide and large it would take 3fel to wrap around them, so spread apart it nearly felt like a meadow in places, the tree's weep and creak as though they are in pain and suffering. You find a large hollow in a tree just up ahead, hide within for coverage from the night.



Objective(s):

Objective A: Depict your Felvarg just about to enter into the Caves of Linnaea (Lynn ay ya), the smell is musky and floral, while it's hard to see the cave is filled with foliage, flora, mushrooms, moss, it consumed the mouth and guts of the cave so much so, it was soft to the touch to step on the cool ground beneath your paws.

Objective B: Depict your Felvarg tucked within the hollow of a gigantic tree within the Forest of Myrkvidor (Mirk va dor) The forest is dead, the trees so wide and large it would take 3fel to wrap around them, so spread apart it nearly felt like a meadow in places, the tree's weep and creak as though they are in pain and suffering.

Activities Introduction (Please Hover)


Once you have a Felvarg accepted and uploaded to the group, you may be wondering where to get started. Although they are by no means necessary for your participation within our game, activities are a fun and useful way to build your character's story while also netting some nice in-game rewards to apply to your Felvarg or exchange for Felcredits (the game currency, used to buy even more goodies from our Village Market). Normal activities have no time limit, so you can complete them at your leisure in between other work. Additional special activities feature entry windows, but don't fret if you miss out on a specific prompt -- there will always be more opportunities to enter in the future, and the prizes will vary to keep things exciting.

Getting Started!


Before you participate in activities, you must create a journal to use as your tracker. Admins will use this journal to distribute your rewards ready for you to redeem later. If you havent created a cache (user bank) with us yet, you can do that now. If you don't one will be created for you when you make your first redeem.

Be sure to view the general activity requirements in the box below this one.

Create your first activity image. Make sure to include a completed activity template form, which you can find at the top of this page. Once completed submit your activity to the group in the correct activity.

Once you've submitted your entry to the group all you need to do now is wait. Felvarg's many admins will roll the activities in the order of which they came into the group. Once rolled, your rewards will display on the tracker you supplied us with. Be patient, our group is vast and we get hundreds of activities a week! Don't worry, our team works fast, you should see your rewards in as little as a few hours, to a few days.


General Activity Requirements


Although each activity has its own specific requirements, the rules below apply universally to any activity you complete. Please make sure to look over each activities specific requirements, which can be found on each activity above, before you create a submission so that it meets all of the criteria.

Each member may only submit a maximum of 2 entries into each activity folder, daily.

Activity entries, regardless of type, must have a completed activity form in the description of the deviation.

All images submitted for rolls must be official! We can not accept sta.sh files attached to activity images in order to make markings or backgrounds more clear for the admins.

Each activity entry may only be submitted to the group for rewards one time. Players caught submitting multiple times will be punished; our team keeps a close eye on submissions and it is not difficult to tell when people are reusing entries. If more than one person's Felvargs are depicted in the piece, the form for each Felvarg should be included in the description of the work, but only ONE person should submit it to be rolled.

Collaborated entries may only be submitted to the group for rewards one time.

Backgrounds may be anywhere natural to our world to receive rewards. Fields, mountains, plains, rivers, lakes, forests, or anything of this variety!

You may include other ARPG critters into your images. The only time you cannot do this is when the images are for Quest, HU, PoC or anything specifically lore locked.

Felvargs in your activity entries should be focused on the task at hand. Felvargs off task will be hit for corrections. An example would be your submitting an image for Fishing when in the image your Felvarg is sleeping instead.


Art Activity Requirements


Regardless of the medium, your Felvarg, and any other features, including marking colors, must be easily identifiable based on their design. For art, all markings must be present, although they don’t have to match the exact locations and you don’t have to put in every ticked mark. It must simply be recognizable. Make sure not to make your Felvarg too small, so we can identify who they are at a glance.

Show at least 75% of your Felvarg. We will take perspective into consideration but abusive use of it will be hit for corrections.

All entries should be 500 x 500 or greater. This means you can even do 600 x 400 just be careful not to make the image too slim.

While we do allow the use of brushes, images abusing the use of brushes will be hit for corrections.

Images with a partially transparent background are allowed. Just make sure your Felvarg is still inside the canvas in a way that makes sure its participating in the task at hand still.

Lineless work is acceptable. Just make sure to add some soft shading and depth.

Rushed entries will be sent back for corrections! Activity admins will use your guide as a general idea as to if your images look rushed!


Understanding Simple vs. Complex Backgrounds


There is a fine line between understanding simple backgrounds and how they vary to complex backgrounds. This breakdown will explain the two and make it less confusing.

To start here is two examples of what is simple and what is complex. Example ONE - Example TWO.

What defines a simple background? A simple background consists of minimal to no shading, along with flat and solid objects. Simple backgrounds have basic, undetailed shapes that are simple placeholders for where detail should be. However, there is such a thing as too simple. Some amount of effort should be put into any background -- after all, you will be receiving rewards for completing your piece! You cannot simply use a bucket fill with a flat horizontal line to make ground and sky and call it a day. Even simple backgrounds should feature focus points (trees, rocks, water, or statues, for example) and it should still be clear at a glance what kind of setting your Felvarg is in. It should also be clear where the ground and sky begins. Random unidentifiable blobs will not be acceptable!

What defines a complex background? A complex background has depth, shading, and detail across a large portion of the piece. It is obvious at a glance that the background received careful attention, and that effort was put into it. It does not need to be a masterpiece, and art is only ever compared to your own gallery. However, you should try to provide a sense of distance in your work, and add textures to things like trees, ground, and rocks.


Literature Activity Requirements


Literature entries have a word count minimum. Regular activities (Adventure, Tracking, Fishing, Mountaineering, Excavating) have a minimum of 1,000 word count. Complex activities (Quest, Competitions, Jormungandr, Diving, Hierarchy Updates, Beast Hunting) have a minimum of 1,200 word count.

Collaboration has a separate word count requirement. When collaborating add +200 wordcount to your overall needed wordcount for the activity.

Each Felvarg must be mentioned fluidly throughout the length of the literature entry. We suggest mentioning your Felvarg 1-2 times per paragraph. Be sure to keep your setting in mind as well. When participating in an activity, details of that activity must also be mentioned in the same fashion to ensure that the Felvarg’s participating remain on task. For example, a fishing entry must mention fish and water, a hunting entry must mention the prey of choice.

Information on Filler: While we respect literature filler is unavoidable to meet word counts, the group still requires the entry to be focused primarily on the task at hand. Flexibility is far more acceptable in entries that allow the user freedom as to what is happening in each Felvargs story. For example, in adventure, the group will allow more filler than usual in these entries as we do not give a direct request or task. However, with activities that have a direct task required of the felvarg should remain on task. Examples of healthy filler in specific task entries may include how the Felvarg feels, the location, what they smell, see, hear, or even taste.

Be mindful of where long literature RPs are broken off per submission Entries are judged separately, so if one submission does not focus on the task, then it will be sent back for corrections, even if the next one or the one before is fine.
