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.

During their hunt for the great snake Himinnsormr, the beast hunter brothers stumbled upon a cavern full of her newly laid clutch. Patches of shed skin floated in the humid air, resting among the many would-be giants. In their excitement of their find, they raced to warn the others, but not before the contents of their satchel spilled over. Freshly collected dragon eggs rolled from their grasp, landing among the sea of other eggs. Suddenly, telling one from another was impossible, the clutches seeming to blend in with one another among the cavern floor.

The villages are amuck with the panic of Himinnsormr, chaos and fear thick in the air. As you make your way down the well worn path, you pause as someone calls out to you. “Wait, you there!” As you turn, you see three alphas making their way towards you, heads low as they cut through the crowd. Kiev, Raevier and Revikta, alphas and masters of beast hunting. It was no shock to see them here, but there was something amiss. They circle around you, voices still raised to be heard above the shouting. “We find ourselves in a predicament, more so than the rampaging snake…” All the brothers nod in unison, and you lean in closer. “There is a cave in Haldor’s Pass, Ormrhellir. It would seem that Himinnsomr had a clutch of eggs there, and in our haste to collect them, we… well, may have dropped something valuable among them. We need you to bring us back our dragon eggs, and best destroy the snake eggs before they hatch.”


Objective(s):

Depict your Felvarg in the depths of Ormrhellir cave trying to sort the brothers’ dragon eggs from the snake eggs. Do you heed their warning and destroy the eggs, or keep them for yourself?

Reward(s):
1x Strange Nordic Box, 3x Splinter of Opal, and 50% Chance to return 1x Dragon Egg.

Optional Bonus:
Hand in a single Bear Trap to aid in the safety of the villages for a 25% chance to return 1x Import Background Set: Haldor’s Pass.

"June 4th 2021 - Large patches of snake skin have been seen around Ulfrheim often found by hunters strewn about the land. The news brings worry to village members, their thoughts drawn to the great snake Himinnsormr. Only once every 500 years does she shed her skin, awakening a hunger like never before after the task is done. Soon enough tales of her now iridescent form appearing around villages have made their way across the island. Hungry and needing to rebuild her strength, Himinnsormr has taken to prowling the roads between the villages, snatching up any Felvarg who dares to enter her sight."


Objective(s):

Depict your Felvarg fighting off or escaping the hungering jaws of Himinnsormr.


Reward(s) For a Successful Tame:

1x BADGE, 1x Long Lost Treasure, 1x Satchel of Leather Goods, 1x Accessory Kit, and 1x 75% chance for the Trait: Big Game Hunter

As Loki and his army flee, you turn towards Saga, who gives you a knowing look. Before she can say anything though, Aurora and Odin come to join you. You are dwarfed by the massive titan, who looks down at you with his blood red eyes. You cannot help but look away, intimidated by the sheer mass of this Felvarg. "I have heard much about you, little one. Thank you for your assistance, but this is far from over," he said, his very voice making the ground quake around you. You look towards Aurora, who nods along. "This battle is far from won. It is, in fact, only the beginning." You gaze in wonder at this Felvarg, wondering just how long he has been hiding here in Helvalla. How long have they been in this new world, waiting to rise up against Loki? So many questions swirl in your head, but before you can ask any, he moves on. "We need help now more than ever. You know the lands of Ulfrheim well. Go, seek out those you trust dearly, and tell them about us. Bring them here. Quickly, we don't have much time!" His booming commands send you running towards the portal, no hesitation in your steps. If a simple command like that can set you in motion, you didn't dare stick around to see what his anger could do.

Objective(s):
Depict your Felvarg recruiting another Felvarg and bringing them to Helvalla. Be it another players Felvarg or your own, show how your Felvarg may convince them to join the rebellion.

-or-

As you sneak back through the portal and stop to catch your breath, you realize the information you have been given. You now know the camp, about Odin, and his plans. With a glance into the depths of Helheims Gate, a smile crossed your maw. Loki and his army set up headquarters there not to long ago, where you had spied his plans for the battle not too long ago. You could bring him this information, and join his army, betraying the rebellion.
Depict your Felvarg bringing this information to Loki and his army, joining forces with him and betraying Saga. What side will you fight for?
Core Reward(s):
5x Felpoints, 5x Rune Coins, 3,000 Felcredits, 1x Strange Potion 1x Title Dependant on Response. Please view the current weather bonus in the Reoccuring Activity Post.

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.
