Let's Clean Up This Lot!

Posted 9 months ago :: Last edited 7 months ago by Provie

As you're walking down the street to your favorite bakery, to pick up your favorite treat because you deserve it for making it through the week, you see a younger Puppillar pacing in front of a very dirty lot. The lot is covered from head to toe, from ivy growing up the side of an abandon shop , glass shards all over the ground, crushed soda cans strewn about,  some shoes left abandoned, and a pile of tires leaning over precariously. The young puppillar is talking to themself about how to even start cleaning up this mess.

You've only made it a couple of steps past them before starting to feel pretty bad for this pup. So you turn back around and decide to ask why they wanna clean up this lot. The puppillar jumps up, startled. "Oh, sorry I didn't even see you there.... Well I wanna give my grandpa a store so he can enjoy and share his hobby of gardening with everyone! And this lot is perfect, but needs a lot of work, I'm not sure I can do it alone.

Your heart melts for this pup, and you volunteer to help them with this huge task, since no pupp deserves to hold such huge task on their shoulders alone, certainly not this pup doing something so sweet for thier grandpa. Before you know it you're texting some friends to come over and they text their friends and soon you have a small army to help clean up!

And you set to work on this little lot to make it look nice and to encourage others to do the same with nearby lots!

 

How Can You Help?

 

This event is prompt  and claim based, and members will recieve Garden Points based on the prompt they complete! The event will have three phases, and each phase will have a new prompt released! Members who participate in all phases will recieve a special prize at the end of the event, so make sure you participate in all three! Once a prompt is released, it will be available for the remainder of the event.

Members may claim one extra point per day by using the Claims Feature, simply submit a claim saying you are claiming a garden point!

The prompt will change for each phase of the event,  and can be found here with all instructions! Each completed prompt will earn 10 garden points!

 

Prize shop:

For this event, we have a prize shop, hosted by the lovely Pupp and his Grandpa! They will be providing lovely garden themed items for anyone who helps clean up the lot! 

The prize shop is located here!

August 16th News Roundup!

Posted 10 months ago :: Last edited 7 months ago by Provie

Hello all! We have been working behind the scenes to update some stuff and add some new stuff to the site! Here's a roundup of all the things goin on!!

 

Design update guide added!

The Design Updates Guide has been updted and added to our site! Most information (including the pricing in treats  and rules) have not changed, but a detailed walkthrough of using the new system has been added!

Check out the updated guide here!

 

New companion and Clothing items!

Over the last few weeks, we have added some new companion and clothing items to the site! And we hope to continue the effort to build up out item database! Provie likes to seek out suggestions for new stuff on the Puppillars Discord, so if you have any ideas or items you would want, keep an eye out.

Updates to Lorekeeper!

Since Lorekeeper's launch, the community has been creating some amazing new features, and generously sharing the new fearures with everyone! As updates have been coming out, andie has been amazing at being on top of them and adding them to Puppillars in order to make  our site able to do more.  A number of these updates have come from Mercury and I we would like to extend a thank you to them (and all of the other Lorekeeper contribitors) for creating some great new things and sharing them for all! Thank you!!!!

Here are some of the amazing updates that have been added to the site:

  • Trade Listings! From the trades page, anyone can add a trade listing that others can view! Any discussion of details will still need to be handled via discord or other means of communication (there's a field for how you want to be reached), and then the trade can be made via normal trading means on the site!
  • Character Inventories! You can now attach Accessories, Companions, Collectibles, and Food Items to your Puppillar, which will be viewable from thier masterlist page, and as a special fun bonus, Companions attached to characters can be named as well!
 
Minor Masterlist policy Change

After considering how robust the Lorekeeper Masterlist feature is, we have decided that a good use of the Alternate Images feature is to allow members to upload alternate views of thier character, such as versions with and without accessories!

If you have a pupp that has an accessory, and would like to have the image without accessory on the masterlist, you are welcome to Submit a Claim to add the additional image! For the URL, link the image you would like used, and in the Comments, please include a link to the Pupp's Masterlist Entry and the dA name of the artist! In most cases, for Pupps with accessories, the owner was given two files, one with, one without, so I'm sure people have these images on hand! If you don't, you can check with Provie on Discord and we will do out best to track the image down!

 

Thats all for today, we hope you enjoy these new updates!!!

Introducing Magic!

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 1 year ago by Provie

"The Puppillar, both domestic and wild, seem to be a perfect conduit for the magical energy of our world. Though many of the most common puppillars, of which domesticated puppillars mainly belong, only possess faint traces of magic, but many more elaborate, and more magical, puppillars have been well documented. "Legendary" Puppillars have been well documented to be able to use fantastical abilities. Fortunately for the denizens of our world, many of these Puppillars are benevolent, and will often use their abilities to benefit local animals or humans."
- From "The World's Magic: Volume 1" by Rover Wagstaff
To read more, check out the Lore Entry Here

 

Magic is here!

Well, its here in a more official capacity! As you may have noticed, hints of magic have been slowly trickling into the ARPG, including the distribution of some magic potions, and magical abilities showing up on some existing puppillars, and a slew of new Pride Pupps, all with some magical abilities, but now the time of magic is finally here!

 

Magical Changes

This new update comes with some changes to existing puppillars, how certain MYOs work, and the use of some items:

All Super Rare Puppillars, existing and new, now come with One Mini Magic Trait. All Legendary Puppillars, existing and new, now come with One Major Magic Trait (not counting illusory form Shapeshifting).

  1. To apply this new trait to existing Puppillars, please submit a claim with the link to your Puppillar's Masterlist entry, and include what you would like thier ability to be in the comments. You cannot change the ability once its been selected, so choose wisely. There is NO deadline to claim your magic ability.
  2. The MYO Guide has been updated to reflect this new information!

New Magical Abilities can be added onto any Puppillar using a Mini Magic Potion or a Major Magic Potion item

  1. To use a potion to add a Magical ability to an existing puppillar, if this is the only change being made to your puppillar, submit a claim including a link to your inventory, a link to the Puppillar's masterlist entry, and you would like thier ability to be in the comments.
    1. Magical abilities can also be added on during the Design Changes process, if other things are being changed about the design.
  2. There is no limit on the amount of magical abilities you can add to a Puppillar, and no rarity restrictions for potion added abilities.
  3. More Magic Potions will be available soon as we expand the ARPG!

 

What kind of abilities can Puppillars have?

Magical traits are meant to be very open ended, in short anything is possible, though depending on the idea, we may not allow something if it doesn't line up with the standards of our group. The distinction between Mini Magic and Major Magic is sort of wiggly, but here are the general guidelines to follow:

Mini Magic: Smaller and simpler magic abilities that don't drastically affect the world around a puppillar

Examples: Minor appearance changes (changing colors, colored body fluids such as tears or spit), creating or summoning minor things or small amount of things, random niche abilities (such as can fix electronics by touch, can predict the weather, or can detect pizza).

Major Magic: More powerful abilities that can have the potential to affect the world around a puppillar

Examples: Healing, controlling elements, shapeshifting, controlling the weather, or other typical "superpowers"

If you are unsure which category your desired ability lies under, please ask staff! We will be available via discord, or via note on Deviantart. Provie has the final say on all magical abilities!

Only Magical Abilities that have been officially appplied can be depiceted being used in official prompts and art, though members are still allowed to "headcanon" unofficial abilities on thier character, though having abilities be official is highly encouraged!

We hope you enhoy this exciting new update!

Puppillars.com Launch!

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 1 year ago by Provie

Welcome to the new Puppillars.com!

We did it folks! After some hard work, we are ready to launch Puppillars.com to our members! There will be a number of changes to group functions, but all the changes will be for the better!

 

Registering on Puppillars.com

In order to participate in the ARPG going forward,  all members must be registered on Puppillars.com! The site has easy to learn functions for managing caches, managing the masterlist, and performing ARPG functions such as shops, prompts, and more! Your site username does not have to match your Deviantart username! Once you have registered on the site and connected your deviantart account, you're good to go!

 

Transferring Your Currency/Items to the site

All items/currency from Caches on deviantart will have to be manually transferred to the site! In order to transfer your items and currency, please make sure your Cache is up to date, which means logging any purchases/trades in your transaction log! All MYO items will be automatically converted into the new MYO masterlist system unless requested! In addition, Gacha Pup tokens are now a currency, and will be added as such!

To start the process of moving your items/currency, please reply to this deviantart comment! 

 

Masterlist Transfer

The masterlist transfer will be starting soon! Members do not need to do anything in order to have thier puppillars transferred to the new site! Please be patient as we get the pupps up on the site! The masterlist also has some great features, such as owners being able to edit a Puppillar's profile right on the masterlist!

 

Submitting ARt to the new site

Going forward, in order to earn rewards for art or prompt/event submissions, they must be submitted to our site, where Staff can automatically dispense rewards to your account! All art must still be submitted to the group on Deviantart, in order to preserve a nice gallery for everyone to look through! All prompts can be found here, with more to come soon!

 

Coming soon...

There are still a few things for us to get up and running on the site, so look forward to some new Mementos soon (which will use the Claims fucntion to claim), and our Adventuring System, which we have been trying to get off the ground for some time now. Looking forward, we will also be premiering our Magic system very soon!

 

Welcome Gift

As a celebration of our new site, Apollo is stocking a new item in his shop, don't forget to grab your Welcome Gift and see what you get!

If you have any questions/comments please feel welcome to reach out via our Discord Channel or via Group Note on Deviantart!
