Happy November everyone! I hope you enjoyed the Trick or Treat event and the Fall Advent! In this new month, we have an awesome new feature for everyone to enjoy, as well as a few other mini announcements!
Challenges Are here!
Our big announcement this month is the introduction of the Challenges feature!! Challenges feature a list of prompts that members can work on at their own pace! Each challenge has its own rules and themes, and will have a prize for completion (more on that later...). To start, there are five challenges: A Character Development Challenge, and Four Seasonal Art Challenges, all ready to be taken on!
Challenges are still partially a work in progress! As mentioned above, there will prizes for completion, but haven't been fully decided yet! I have a few ideas for prizes, but would love to hear from the members on what would be a worthwhile prize for these challenges! If you have suggestion, please use the comments below, or the #suggestions channel on our Discord Server!
Reminders and open adopts roundup
First off, reminder that you can claim tickets for the Trick or Treat Raffle until November 5th, 2021! Now's the time to double check that you have aubmited all your trick or treat ticket claims or get in those extra ads for a last few tickets , members can post up to three ads for an extra ticket, and are welcome to advertise the group in general rather than the event specifically to get those last few tickets!
Second, the Seasonal Shop will be rotating its stock on December 1st! Marcus will be switching over to his winter themed stock, which includes some fun old items, so make sure you grab any fall themed stuff you wany before its gone!
And finally, here's all the currently open adopts! We have some guest adopts, as well as some adopts from the advent still available!
Grab these cuties while they're still available!!
What to expect for the rest of the year
October was a big fun exciting month over at Puppillars, so the next few months will be a bit more quiet as we work on stuff slowly behind the scenes. Provie will be working on the Guide and Lore project, as well as the Masterlist project, which took a little bit of a backseat recently. We do plan on having a small event in December, in the form of a simple item advent, so stay tuned for that!
As always, thank you so much fior all your support! It was awesome seeing everyone's submissions for the event and the amount of support shown for the advent!
🎃Happy October everyone!!!!!🎃
There's a chillin the air, spooky decorations are going up, and pumpkin spice is back at Pawbucks, so it must be time for fall! After a bit of a lull, we have a few fun activities to get everyone back in the swing of things! Our Trick or Treating Event is back, with six prompts to complete, the Haunted Server Event is also back with five new ghosts to collect, and we have an exciting Fall Adoptable Advent with thirteen adopts that will be revealed during the second half of the month!

🍬 Trick or Treating 🍬
"Trick or treat! Smell my feet! Give me something good to eat!! " Puppypillars love to chant this silly phrase when out participating in trick or treating, having picked up both the tradition and the chant from humans. Many puppillars love participating in human holidays, and Halloween is no exception!
To celebrate the Holiday, we have Six Puppillars that are giving out some lovely prizes, and a raffle ticket, as long as you complete their prompt! Each prompt has its own guidelines, posted in the comments below this news post, so please read carefully! Each prompt can be completed once per member!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to September!
August was a busy month for me, so things have been a lil slow over the last month, but there have been some amazing guest adoptables and some new updates!
Fall seasonal trader
Marcus has all manner of spooky and fall themed items in his shop, including the ghost companions from last year's Haunted Server event! More items will be added to his shop this season, so keep an eye out, and if you have any suggestions, please share them in our Discord Server! These items will be available until November 30th, so grab them while you can!
New Lore Page
One of the main new updates for this month is the introduction of an important lore page, The Puppillars World! This page provides a great basic overview of the world, the magic of the world, and how puppillars and snailcats fit into the world. There have been a few updates to this page over the last few days, and it will eventually get some graphics to spice it up, but the information is considered complete! If there is anything that seems to be missing, or if you have any questions about the world of puppillars, please feel free to ask on our Discord Server!
Project and other updates
The Puppypillar Raffle will happen sometime this month! I was hoping to have the puppypillars done last month, but wound upsuer busy, so I will be working on the batch of 5 puppypillars, 4 of which will be raffled off once the winner of the main raffle, Oboe, has thier pick of which one to keep! Apologies for the delay!
Guide and Lore Updates are ongoing! The major update is the Puppillars World Update, but I plan on continuing to chug along with more updates and adding graphics to the guides. Keep an eye on our Discord Server, as I might occasionally post polls on what I should work on next!
The Masterlist project will be starting up again soon! The bug mentioned in a previous news post ha been fixed, so I will start adding in extra images ad re-uploading images soon!
Spooky season is approaching! Things have been kinda slow on Puppillars, but we have a few spooky time themed activities coming up soon! October will have some fun stuff in store, including the return of Trick or Treating and the retrurn of the Haunted Server game over at our Discord! We also have some adoptables planned.... but more on that is to come. :3c
Currently open adopts
There are three adoptables currently still open from this round of Guest Artists! Take a look and perhaps take one of these cuties home with you!
That's all for this news update! Thanks for tuning in!
Happy August Everyone!
Once again I'm here with a nice update roundup for this month! I hope everyone had fun with Art Fight last month, it was super fun to see everyone's art and people participating in Chance's Gacha Generosity! Can't wait to see what people get from Gacha, good luck to anyone who opens some capsules! I opened a few myself and added some nice stuff to the Donation Shop :3c always good to keep an eye on the shop, you never know what you might find there!
The winner of the July Puppypillar raffle has been drawn! The result can be seen on the Raffle Page, congrats to Oboe ! I will reach out to you shortly with details! After the puppypillars have been created, the unclaimed ones will be raffled off as well, so keep an eye out for updates!
One of our new features is a Featured Character on our Homepage! We will periodically be switching out the character to be spotlighted, and may have nominations and/or voting in the future for what character is the spotlight, but for this round, staff has selected Taro, owned by Hawkins ! Taro has had some lovely art made lately, and is the parent to one of our first Puppypillars, we can't wait to see more from them! As the owner of the Spotlight Character, Hawkins will be awarded the King for a Day Sticker award! Congrats!
Lore and Guide Updates are ongoing! Art Fight took up a decent amount of my time in July, but there has been some stuff that has been updated so far!
- Staff Documentation and Guest Artist Documentation has been updated and moved from Google Drive onto our site! This is mainly not visible to members, but has been helpful for staff, and our current round of Guest Artists have been able to benefit from the update!
- The item DB has been updated with new Item Rarities and fixing up some useful information!
- To go along with the previous point, new guide has been added! All about Currencies, Items, and Awards has been created for a reference to all of these lovely things we have on site! This guide has added graphics and some cool new line dividers, and is a nice example of the improvements I plan on making to the other guides!
- Mini-Lore update! The Puppillar Holidays page has been launched, which is still a major WIP! This entry outlines some holidays in the Puppillar society, and you can look forward to these being expanded on and having a presence in the ARPG as well!
The Masterlist Project is currently on hold! One of my big projects is to update Masterlist art for every character so that the "new" watermarking system is present for each entry, where owners and staff can see the unwatermarked image and everyone else see the watermarked version, however I have decided to put this on hold because we need to make some updates/fixes to the masterlist in order to add extra images. Another component of this project was to add all the alternate view images of Puppillars I have access to (mainly images without accessories), so this will be on hold for a little bit while that gets sorted out!
Some New items
A few new items have been added to the Clothing Shop! The Cowboy Hat and Pansy Flower Crown were requested by members and are now available!
In addition, we have been working on creating the Exclusive Prizes for the Dungeon Quest: Beast Quest!
Thats all we got for now, hope everyone has a great day/night/whatever! :D
Looks like Aspen has busted out the crayons again in honor of Art Fight! July has some other fun stuff in store though, so let's jump on into it!
Art fight 2021!
July means Art Fight, the online art exchange/brawl where people draw for each other! In honor of art Fight, we will be encouraging participation by offering some bonus incentives over at Chance's Gacha Generosity! For the duartion of Art Fight, you may submit ANY art for other Puppillars members, even if the art is of a non-puppillars character, and the Gacha bonus of 2 Rolls on the loot table will remain until Art Fight Ends! Even if you don't participate in the official Art Fight, you may still participate if you do gift art for Puppillar members!
July puppyillar raffle
Puppypillars have comfortably found thier place in our ARPG, and it's about time we host our first Puppypillar Raffle! This raffle is free to enter, and will work as follows:
- Each member can claim their free ticket via Claims, simply submit a new claim and select the raffle ticket as your reward

Staff and Site changes
To start off this section, we would like to give a special shoutout to tgi , who has recently stepped down from being staff. During his tenure, TJ has made some amazing adoptables and items our site, and we appreciate all his hard work! Thank you so much TJ, you will always be part of our Pupppillars family!
As always, we are always working on improvements for our site, as many people have seen, we have recently added Birthday Verification to the site, which sis required going forward. This is to enforce that all members must be 13 or older. As announced on our Discord Server, anyone who verifies their birthday on the site is eligible to claim a free Welcome Box item. If you haven't already, feel free to subit a claim requesting your gift!
There have also been a few improvements to the site, including a revamp of how sales posts will appear, which we will be hopefully utilizing soon!
Thanks to everyone who applied to be a Guest Artist! It was hard to choose from the applications, but we have selected five guest artists, BLACKDOGZ , Hawkins , Pooka , Oboe , and 4sparkles ! Their guest sets will be posted when they are completed, so keep an eye on our Sales page for some cute new pupps and snailcats!
More site improvements are always in the works, but one of the features we are working on is being able to verify your account's alias through different sites. You will be able to manage your Aliases via your settings, and choose a primary alias. The sites that will be available to use are: deviantArt, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitch! Once these changes are made, we will make sure to make an announcement!
Thanks for tuning in to the news! We hope you enjoy all this cool new stuff! Hope everyone is having a safe and happy summer so far!
