Wyngro

Create. Develop. Grow!
Monthly Newsletter (June 2021)
Happy June everyone! We hope you've been enjoying the warm weather, (or cooler, wherever you are!) and hope you're excited for some new stuff coming this month! So let's dig right in!
-----------------------------------------
Last Notch is now OPEN! Yeehaw!
,
Huepoe Ori
Thanks for being patient while we get more lore out about this town, you guys! We wanted to wait until things were fleshed out more, rather than throwing people into a barren town. (It is the capitol city, afterall!)
But yes, Last Notch is now OPEN to travel to and live in!
Do get more character interactions, check out our #event_newsletter in Discord!
-----------------------------------------
So my wyngro can now move to Last Notch. Cool! How do I do it?
  • Unlock travel for your desired wyngro.
  • Follow the steps for the Last Notch Residency Quest! Different subspecies have different rules.
  • Obtain your special Residency Chip! Oooo!
,
chip LAST NOTCH
What is a Residency Chip and how does it work?
Residency Chips are needed for many popular towns that require citizenship before you can purchase land, sell goods, and raise wynglings within its borders. They are crafted in mass and then linked up magically to your wyngro personally. Having a special magic fingerprint attached assures that the chip can only be used by you and not re-sold or traded. Tampering with this magical ID is illegal and punishable by law.
In lore, your wyngro typically gains one of these by filling out a form and paying a fee, but every town has different laws involved in obtaining one. The Gumbuckles are known to frequently offer them to out-of-towners they end up liking for free. (It always pays to have friends in high places!)
What if I want a wyngling to live in Last Notch?
Wynglings cannot gain residency through quests, so they'll need to grow up first! If you want a wyngling in Last Notch, you'll need to obtain a bred egg that has parents with residency there, purchase a special Donated Design/Auction with Last Notch as its location, or stay tuned for special events that allow for wynglings to be in Last Notch!
What's the difference between Last Notch & Wynsiph?
Both towns are radically different in lore. Wynsiph is a small, humble town based on farming, where as Last Notch is the largest city in the Northwest Territory. Because of its growth, Last Notch is much more advanced than Wynsiph as well, using functions such as working plumbing, a full wibble mail service, and many other technological advancements. The family running Last Notch is also much larger, with relatives reaching into every corner of the town. Knowing a Gumbuckle is crucial to getting anywhere in Last Notch. They are also known for their quarry excavations, and quarry ori ranches. If you want a high quality ori, you go to Last Notch.
We'll be continuing to develop both towns from here on out, fleshing them out for all that juicy lore, so stay turned and keep being creative within the group!
-----------------------------------------
New…. Flora?

Sageistro sketch
Wait a second…. That ain't no cactus!!
Meet the resident spite of Last Notch: The Sageistro! Very common in dry areas imitating the local flora, these spites rely on jump scares. Oh great.
-----------------------------------------
,
Ringdots 2
One last thing: Are those… Puckoos?
Not quite! Meet the ringadots: otherwise known as sand puckoo! Though very similar, this species has a lot of different defying traits that set them apart.
-----------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
,
Monthly Prompt Icon Artmedium

Art medium prompts usually encourage the use of specific traditional medium tools in order to create a piece of art. These prompts help those of you who may have extra art supplies hanging around to make use of them!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
,
Monthly Prompt Icon Pallet
Palette Prompt:
,
Summer Juice

FAQs

Can I do a specific Prompt more than once for more wyns?
Nope! Once you do a specific Monthly Prompt, you cannot do it again until it returns at a later date.
What if I don’t have the specified art materials to do the Art Medium Prompts?
Then you can either try to obtain them throughout the month! Remember, these prompts are optional. They're just encouraging challenges that’ll net you some extra wyns. If you can’t do them, you can’t do them.
Can I draw a sketch for these prompts? Or does it have to be colored?
Monthly Prompts can be sketchy or colored-- it’s up to you! Obviously, Pallet Prompts need to use color, and the Art Mediums will depend on the Prompt. If it’s asking you to use acrylics or watercolors, it might ask you to use at least two colors, for example. Just follow the prompt!
What if I have Max Wyns? What’s the point of these?
Why not use them to challenge yourself as an artist! Not everything needs rewards!
Can I do multiple prompts in one image?
Nope! Please only do one prompt per image!

Welcome to Monthly Gallery Showcase!

Each month on the 15th, our staff picks out some favorites from the previous month to celebrate your efforts! These can be picked out by art skill, creativity, humor, story, character development, mood, etc.
We comb through the entire gallery to find every viable piece and consider them all against many factors. We look at whether someone has been featured many times before, whether or not it stands out from other pieces in your own personal gallery, ambitious attempts at new angles, mediums, styles, and so on!
This takes a lot of time, but we appreciate all your hard work, and thank you for making Wyngro as colorful and creative as it is! So let's look at this month's picks for APRIL!

The CRANNY is now offering a new room: Suite Room!
,
Sweet Suite 2 By Cherrytrabbit De217o5
For those gros that are really working their way up to bigger and better rooms, there's no better room than the Suite Room! This room is upgradable from the Sun Room after you've drawn at least 10 Cranny Polished Pieces for your wyngro. Here's a list of benefits for getting a gro into the suite room:
  • All items can be completely customized. Feel free to draw new furniture, edit the silhouettes, change all the colors you want! (so long as the shape of the room stays the same)
  • This room can occupy 2 wyngrew instead of one, wynglings, and any small pets. (Reed won't allow any quarry oris in the Cranny. They're not really indoor pets and all)
  • Lots of room, privacy, and sunlight!
  • Something else might just make its way into your upgraded room as well….
-----------------------------------------
Introducing Tots & Moppets!
,
Tots In The Walls
Oh gross, it looks like the cranny has been infested with tots. Reed isn’t too thrilled about this new pest, but some of the residents at the Cranny have been secretly keeping them as pets. Don’t they know that feeding tots only makes the problem worse?
-----------------------------------------
Breeding Update: Character Tracker Mandate
As of May 1st, the breeding tracker is now mandated for all breedings. Thank you guys so much for helping us test the tracker and polish the template. If you have any questions on how to set up the tracker, please refer to the walkthrough on the breeding approval guide found here: https://www.wyngro.com/breeding-guide We hope you all enjoyed your bonus upgrade for testing the tracker out. Now that the tracker is mandated, we will be going back to the regular amount of upgrades. However, we do plan to squeeze the extra bonus upgrade back into a new mechanic later, so stay tuned for that! Again, thank you to everybody who has used the tracker so far.
-----------------------------------------
The Month of May brings back the Flower Stamp!
,
Flower Stamp icon
The warm weather is here, and that means the flower stamp has sprung back up. Apply this upgrade to some of your wyngro before it wilts in June!
-----------------------------------------
Magic Class: Basic Fire and Water Underway annnnd the Future of Magic Class!
Magic class is well underway, just about to enter its third week! So far, class has managed to keep up the pace and everyone is getting things done on time. (We’re so proud of you!) If you didn’t get the chance to join this one, don’t lose hope!
For the foreseeable future, we’re going to keep the train rolling with magic classes. This means, just like the last time, we will have one week of downtime before the next class’ registration opens up! There will obviously be exceptions to this pertaining to events that may come up, but otherwise, we will be making an effort to keep a magic class up each month when there are no large events going on!
That said, our next class will be……
Basic Earth and Wind!
If this class sounds like it would interest you, grab a Basic Magic Ticket from our store either on the Wyngro website (www.wyngro.com/store) , or on our Resource account (@Wyngrew) via points!
Once you have your magic ticket, keep an eye out on our discord for when the registration channel goes live on May 24th!
