[Update] Trait Updates

UserGuides_ExclaimationPointSmall.pngTrait Clarificaitons and Updates


Hi all! We are in the long process of going through traits to update and clarify their descriptions! We've finished with CCCats as you'll see below, but we will update this post as we finish other species as well! Please refer below to what new larger updates you can find in the traits. Thank you to the team for all the hard work and discussion to get this updated! There are so many updates that we cannot place them all here, but we will place the most important ones here! Do check out each CCCat Trait for details! 

Ideally our new formatting will allow for quicker updates if new rules and clarifications are added to the traits!

General Notes
  • Any traits that had a downgrade in rarity or were consolidated will grant a free trait that you may use for any trait within the respective rarity or lower when updating the design. These cannot be moved from one design to another and are not able to be traded in for trait tickets, and will remain bound to the design
  • Any designs that were updated to include any upgraded traits will only receive that respective trait only if the original design also has it. The design can keep the trait as it currently appears as long as it is not redesigned or reverted. Upgraded traits do not grant unused traits.
  • Trait items will now allow for you to change the trait within the bounds of what the item grants during redesigns [Example: If using the Bittersweet Truffles to apply Heart Eyes to a Nautipod, you may switch that trait to X eyes when redesigning, as that trait is granted by the item, and can still apply to the character]

CCCats

  • Goat Eye will be updated to Square Pupil and will be expanded to allow squares, rectangles, and diamonds, on top of the standard allowed for goat eye.
  • Needle Teeth will be merged into Overgrown Teeth.
  • Overgrowth Teeth may use Saber/Tusk/Tipsy Turvy/Snaggletooth without the need for additional traits.
  • Crown Placement Traits
    • Crowns on Face/Cheeks can include Crowns on Forehead, and Crowns in common placements without additionally needing the trait.
    • Crowns on Lower Body may also include crowns on the Face/Cheeks, Crowns on Forehead, and Crowns in common placements without additionally needing the traits
    • Crowns on Head and Elsewhere on Body will be dissolved and granted +1 Touched to applicable designs.
  • Pattern Shifting Eye has had its definition expanded
    • If the base color of the eye changes, the patterns must include ALL of the used colors
    • If the base color remains the same, the pupil patterns may have differing colors.
  • Unseen Eye and Tongue traits will all allow for the design to have Dead Eye or Dead Tongue colors without the need for the trait additionally
  • Multiple Eyes/Tongues (4-10) has been expanded to allow ONE instance of a trait to apply to all of the Eyes/Tongues [Example: If you have x1 instance of Metallic Eye, you may apply Metallic Eye to ALL eyes]
  • Floating Body Piece (Touched) has been expanded to allow 11-20 pieces. and the Unseen variant has been expanded to allow 21-30 pieces
  • Unused Unseen Traits may only use Unseen traits that are listed on the trait list OR exist currently on a design. New unseen traits cannot be created using an Unused Unseen.
  • Object Growth on Tongue has been merged into Object Tongue, which now encompasses both expressions of the trait.
  • Hallowed has been downgraded to Touched
  • Separated Wormling has been upgraded to Unseen
  • Headless - Mouth appearing on neck is now OPTIONAL
  • Shaped Eye - Shaped Eye is a new trait at Unseen rarity that will allow the CCCat's eye to be a non-round shape.
  • Extras Traits
    • Extra Limbs adds two pairs of limbs (4 additional limbs) to the body  per instance of the trait. This count does not include the default limbs (arms and back legs) and adds to the total of limbs. Can be either arms or legs
    • Extra Mouths now adds x2 mouths per instance of the trait on top of the default mouth.
    • Unusable Limbs now adds x2 pairs of Unusable Limbs per instance of the trait
    • Wings now adds x2 pairs of wings per instance of the trait
  • Multi-Form Eye/Tongue now allows for one instance of a trait to effect the eye in both forms [Example: If you have x1 instance of Metallic Eye, you may apply Metallic Eye to the eye in both forms]
  • Inanimate Host no longer allows for the body to be replaced by Stone, Crystal, Solid Metal [Meaning solid metal, does not apply to robotic hosts or armor hosts], unless it is replacing the ENTIRE body. These can be applied via Earth Defect or Metal Defect.
  • Second Set of Colors can be stacked, meaning that every additional instance of the trait grants x1 additional palette.
  • Color Changing Markings Update - The three color rule has been removed, but we have defined the trait further as detailed below
    • Can only be applied to a defined marking, meaning it should not apply to pure gradients
    • Marking that change color can have gradients
    • No restriction on the number of colors, but colors can still only have one additional alternate color.
    • Cannot apply to all markings on the body
    • Color Changing Coat still applies to the base coat only
    • Cannot be stacked
  • Object Growth applying specifically to plants has been further defined.
  • Split Tail has been updated to allow for the following
    • Rare - 2-10 Splits | Previously was Rare - 2-5 Splits
    • Myth - 11-20 Splits | Previously was Myth - 6-10 Splits
    • Touched - 21-40 Splits | Previously was Touched - 11-15 Splits
    • Splits apply across ALL tails.
  • Glowing/Opalescent/Sparkling/Metallic Markings Update - The three color rule has been removed, and rules have expanded as detailed below
    • Any color on the body are affected by these marking types as long as the WHOLE coat is not effected.
  • Glowing/Opalescent/Sparkling/Metallic Coat Update -
    • ALL colors on the body are affected by these marking types AND the CCCat may for example have the Glowing Teeth, Glowing Tongue Markings, Glowing Eye, and all extras such as Crowns, Claws, and Horns/Spikes
VISUALS

Some traits have been given additional visuals!

[Mini-Update] April 2024

Posted 3 weeks ago :: Last edited 3 weeks ago by Frog
Glub glub...

the waters of Skire warm as spring emerges... silly little guys seem to be popping up in the sands...

Click each image to enter yourself into one of our self-enter raffles. These raffles will close April 03rd @ 11:59:59 Site Time! What creatures might you find waiting?
Happy April 1st!


Meanwhile...
Uto bustles with life as the denizens of Skire move about, finally free of winter's chill. Travel and commerce across Skire is expedited by its complex magical portals, bringing people and things from every corner into to the city. Somewhere in Choice, a bit of construction begins...

"Oh, Hi..." The crook standing at the mouth of the broken portal rubs the back of their neck, a bit bothered by the interruption. They are dressed in mechanics fatigues, covered in what surely looks like years of oil and grime stains, and a hat with an old logo obscures their face some.

"Listen, if you're going to hang around, I need some help," He grumbles, shuffling in their baggy clothes a bit as they stare up at the machinery. Something about the glow of their eye beneath the brim of the cap seems familiar, but you can't quite be sure. "Seems like this portal's missing a few things... Wonder how long its been here... 

"What? a DJ? I don't know who you're talking about..." They wave off the question, opening up a bright red toolbox covered in stickers, "If you're done with the questions, why don't you stop by Grant's and get yourself a pouch to carry stuff in..."

[Scavenger Hunt available throughout April. Ends April 30, 2024 @ 23:59:59]

REMINDER! Please do not spoil the hunt. You may request help and hints from other users, but sharing direct answers, links, or hints that are too obvious are not allowed in chat.

UserGuides_ExclaimationPointSmall.png IMPORTANT UPDATES SEE BELOW

 

TRADING UPDATES

  • Beginning at the time of this announcement, all accounts created after April 01st, 2024 00:00:00 must complete one prompt to be eligible to trade items and crowns. ALL prompts that do not require character ownership are eligible.
  • This does not apply to character transfers that do not involve items.
STARTER PACK UPDATES

  • The starter pack has been phased out of the free gifts shop at the time of this announcement due unfortunately to consistent instances of exploitation. This was a problem with the original welcome box as well, and we aim to mitigate this.
  • The starter pack will be reintroduced via a yearly Standard Payout prompt with low requirements that will grant the Starter Pack as part of its rewards.
  • Users who claimed the starter pack may still do this quest upon release.
NEW ITEMS + Updates

  • 20 new trait items have been added to the website... will you discover them all...?
  • All of these items will be available via normal means later!
  • Certain items are subject to change as well!
  • New items have been updated to have different border colors and a small symbol to denote rarity. Older items will eventually be updated to use this system.



OTHER UPDATES
  • Some trait items have been updated to include more traits that they can apply! Some traits have also been adjusted so that all items only apply traits of a single rarity. Keep your eyes peeled for these items!
    • Stinger Sourpop - Addition of Insect Wings (Gravents)
    • Sappy Sweetsticks - Addition of Complex Tongue Tip (Crooks/Gravents)
    • Thorny Flower - Addition of Spiked Tentacles and Leafy Tentacles (Nautipods) 
    • Feather Duster - Addition of Particle Crowns (CCCats), Particle Tendrils (Crooks), and Particle Vent Wings(Gravents)
    • Silky Brush - Addition of Royal Feathers, Quill Feathers, Royal Vent Wings, and Royal Tail Strands (Gravents)
  • We are in the process of clarifying trait definitions! This is planned to include a comprehensive list of rules that each trait has. Hopefully this will provide more clarity when designing! We are working by species currently, and when one species is finished, the other will be started. This may take some time as we have nearly 700 traits! [Preview Here!]
  • We are reviewing crown payouts and are working on creating further guides for prompts. At this time no changes can be confirmed!
  • Trait images are completed! They are currently pending edit and upload to the site, as it is a time intensive process. Thank you for Sweet-n-treat for the amazing art!
  • Progress has begun on a questline where users will be able to earn a MYO slot and traits! This will be available regardless of ownership status and be a one-time-only quest available for completion at any time, with no time limit to do so. 
  • Crafting is being worked on! Recipes have been concepted, and past items will slowly be uploaded to the site! They will not have as much use until we can create the necessary gathering processes, prompts, and recipes! This will also include daily and weekly claims. 
  • Please welcome Muy as our newest mod! He will be assisting the team in the discord mainly but you may see him around elsewhere! We are excited to have him!
  • The Skire Scoop has been updated to a new question -- "What is your comfort food?"
  • General Store stock has been updated!
  • A new Magic Bonus button has been added to the Prompt Payout Criteria!

🍛Savory SWEET Spectacular🍰

Welcome to the March - April 2024 Savory Sweets Event!

Prompt Outline
Prizes
Requirements+FAQ
Updates
 
 
Food is such a wonderful thing. Whether it's the joy of gathering your own ingredients, the dedication to making a meal, or the warmth you get when finally enjoying the result of all that time you put in. Some cook to treat themselves, some cook to share their food with others, and some prefer to let others do the cooking for them. Either way, this event is meant to share the stages of what goes in to making something delicious!
 
Put on your aprons and let's get started!
 
PART 01

Gather ingredients! Go shopping, forage for your own, harvest, or share your quest for the perfect ingredient!

This prompt must be completed FIRST

Draw or write about an Official Skire Character (Yours, someone else's, or an NPC) gathering ingredients to cook with.

  • Do they grow or make their own ingredients, or do they purchase them?
  • Do they prefer to stick to their ingredient list,  or will they try just about anything?
  • Do they enjoy unorthodox ingredients? CCCats do not need to eat standard foods, but many find that they enjoy the process or the taste! Due to the fact that their body breaks down whatever object they eat, they may also enjoy odd ingredients, and things that some might not even consider food. Consider the texture, the taste, and the source! Why do they pick those ingredients? 
18-image.png
PART 02

Its time to start cooking! Keep it quaint with just a fire, or get professional with it! There are countless ways to cook!

This prompt must be completed SECOND

Draw or write about an Official Skire Character (Yours, someone else's, or an NPC) cooking/baking.

  • Do they have a home with a kitchen, or do they work with unique resources to cook? 
  • Do they run a tight ship in the kitchen, or do they get loose and messy when they cook?
  • Are they experienced, or are they a new chef?
  • Do they prefer to work alone, or do they enjoy sharing the task?
19-image.png
PART 03

Enjoy the feast! you've worked hard for it, so you deserve to finally rest with a nice meal.

This prompt must be completed THIRD

Draw or write about an Official Skire Character (Yours, someone else's, or an NPC) enjoying the meal they made.

  • What is their finished meal?
  • Does their meal look picture perfect, or does it turn out questionable? How does it taste in contrast?

FAQ

FAQ

Q: Can we ask for an extension on the prompt?
A: No, but if submissions require revisions you may be informed of a grace period to resubmit.

Q: If I win, can I give my prize away?
A: For fairness, if you win the prize, you may not gift the prize away. You may return your prize to the admin to re-roll the raffle. Items can be traded, but you should not enter solely to grant the item to someone else.

Q: Can I enter to try and help someone else win?
A: No, it is not fair for multiple people to enter on behalf of one person. You will not be able to surrender your prize to a specific person.

Q: When will the event end specifically?
A: This prompt's end date is displayed on the prompt itself! Please refer to this section and the website's clock for this time!

Q: When will prizes be raffled off?
A: Anywhere from the next day to a few days after the event ends. Rolls are automatic onsite but we will still be announcing them in the Discord!

Q: My entry was denied because it didn’t meet the requirements. Can I fix it and resubmit to try and enter?
A: Yes, as long as this is done so before the event ends. We will not count anything submitted after the event has ended, but a short grace period may be given.

Q: Are admin allowed to enter the event and win prizes?
A: Yes, admins are allowed to enter events! However if an admin is rolled for winning a prize, they don’t occupy a member’s chance to win! Another roll will be done so that a member can still win a prize.

Q: I became a non-owner/owner over the course of the event! Can I change my entries? 
A: Yes, please contact a mod! If you become an owner over the event, we ask that you inform us that you are no longer a non-owner out of fairness! If you become a non-owner, please inform us as well as we may grant non-owner tickets. If we notice this system is being used to fodder non-owner MYO slots, we will no longer grant ticket changes from owner to non-owner for the event period, but you may be eligible again if you are still a non-owner during the next event.

OPENING Guide


Welcome everyone! Its been a lot of hard work from the team since this new website's conception to get this up and going, but we are ready for our first wave of ARPG testing! Please check out the guide below for what is currently available to complete!

Hello and thank you guys endlessly for the kind words, excitement, and of course patience with us as we got to work with the ARPG!

We are so excited to be able to unveil the start of what we hope to be multiple parts of the release for the ARPG and features for the site!
There’s a lot of details below about what is coming in this first part later in this announcement and what we hope to be working on next, along with some other small things. It’s really exciting, and I'm so thankful to the team and members who helped contribute everything they have to make this a reality!

As a reminder, this is going to be the first part of the ARPG so it is quite limited compared to what we hope will be the full picture later as we progress. Consider it like the first true beta test round for the ARPG I think! However, as previously mentioned, there aren’t any plans to remove progress or wipe any progress during this unless there is a potential bug or site feature that breaks and does something completely unintended, but that is unlikely. Knocking on wood of course omg…


BUT for now, I just want to give everyone who helped out as well as all the people who have been excited for everything my utmost appreciation and gratitude. There’s a lot that has changed since the initial concept of the ARPG, but I’m really excited for what is becoming real and the plans we have and options available to us as we go forward. It’s a new experience for me overall, and I’ve been having a fun time learning and I aim to keep doing so as we continue onward with more! Slowly but surely, the site and ARPG as a whole has been expanding with lots of new things and possibilities, and I cannot wait to see where things go!
            - WellHidden

PLEASE NOTE: These values are subject to change, as are prompts! Feedback is welcome and appreciated.

If you participated in the alpha you may have noticed that they have changed a lot! The team believed that this system was more complex than necessary, and wanted to start smaller, so that numbers felt like they had more weight to them when earned, and adding up payout values could be made easier to undertsand.

Payout guide

All prompts listed as "Standard Payout" Will have a calculator attatched that will help you calculate payour rewards. These payouts have a chance of changing over time! With this first release, we aim to test how they go!

[Update] General Rules, ToS, & Privacy Policy update!

Posted 3 months ago :: Last edited 3 months ago by WellHidden

Hello everyone!
For those unaware the goal was set to release the first snippet of the Skire.club ARPG around January 14th!
I think we're still set for this though of course any potential delay will be notified likely on the Skire discord server.

In preperation for the upcoming ARPG there have been some updates to our site and community Rules, ToS,  and Privacy Policy to ensure individual safety and proper usage of the site.
With the update we ask you please be sure to read through as usage of the site and participation in the Skire community requires agreement to these!

As a reminder, this upcoming release will only be part 1 of expected multiple parts for full release to come gradually.
The first part will be testing small parts of larger site functions, currency values, the first four basic mentors, and some mainstay prompts.
We hope to obtain feedback regarding these things and see what we can do with them overall to expand! We have a number of things planned regarding these that may not come in part 1 but are slated to come in the future.

This is essentially going to be the start of "beta" for things and changes are to be continuously made as we watch and experience how things go! 
It is not expected that a "rollback" or wiping of anything earned during this time will be necessary even if large changes are made, however if something is done accidentally through testing or usage of new site features that results in unintended behavior or a bug then corrections may be made in case!

You may see further updates notified on-site and on the CCCat discord server as the day gets closer for ARPG release and after release in case!
Thank you guys!!

FAQ

 

On Skire exists a land often referred to as the Everdark Desert; where the sands are black and glitter like stars both upon the ground one walks, and floating peacefully above like an artificial night sky. 

At a certain time of year, the vast night-like clouds that encompass the desert begin to spread across a great majority of the Skire continent. No violent storm, no winds and rains, no thunder or lightning to follow the haze. It is but a gentle advance; the explanation for which is unknown. All Skire’s inhabitants can do is let themselves be tucked in for a long, long night.

It is not uncommon to view this phenomena as a remnant of a Creator’s wish or the work of some looming titan spirit casting its shadow. Whether it’s believed to be protecting the land or attempting far more sinister things is debatable. However, one strange occurrence is always foreseen and prepped for: The mysterious, wisp-like entities that appear to others only during this time…

Many call this occurrence the Long Night, and preparation for it is something everyone tends to do differently! One thing that is always the same: Costumes, Candles, and Creativity!

As the sky fades into its ominous glittering black, lighting becomes a necessary decoration, but it serves multiple purposes The lights are created and known by all denizens of Skire, offering guidance, communication, and illumination for Skireans and the little fire-like entities alike. Many Skireans use the differently colored flames of candles to indicate their intent or desires quickly through the darkness. The ghostly figures and wisps that show up are often devoid of color so not only do the colored candles provide festivity in the night, but are also easily differentiated from the wisps themselves.

Lantern Color Meanings

Blue - Come get food
Green - Come find Shelter/Safety
Orange - Mischief and fun is abound (Party or some form of games)
Purple - Celebration, come on in
Pink - Private / no one home or nothing happening here
Red - Looking for help

 

Lanterns and Candles

The tradition of using candles, lanterns, and colored flames originates from the Whicks who for ages have aimed to collect and assist the wisp-like entities. They are the most frequently seen species out-and-about during the Long Night, given the high volume of wisps that present themselves while the sky is dark.

It is said by the Whicks that these wisps populate the land constantly, but only become visible to others when the sands have cast their looming shadow. These wisps, while usually taking harmless shape, are known to have remnants of tangible magic that occasionally allow them to take larger, more ghostly humanoid and beastly forms. 

Whicks claim the wisps are remnants of collected magic that either formed together, or failed to detach from an enchanted item (or person). It is also theorized they can form from failed attempts at magical spells, or by force of will by a living person. All these methods of creation have caused some to compare them to “ghosts” despite wisps never having living souls to begin with. 

Whicks say that these wisps don’t have thoughts or goals, instead wandering with a leftover emotion or function from the magic cast. Rarely, they cause harm or take tangible form, so Whicks make an effort to understand and use the wisps in new ways to safely disperse the magic once more. Usually this is done through glasswork or metalwork, using these wisps as an energy source to craft unique magical items.

The collection of wisps within lanterns originates from Whicks who use lanterns as a symbol of home or body. It is popular to see Whicks with metal, stone, glass, or wooden gargoyles decorating their abodes; often adorned with empty lanterns hanging in their mouths or limbs. They believe a lantern is a home for a soul, and they wish for no soul to be without a safe place to call home. Protection is said to be provided by the gargoyles that watch over these lanterns, and often the tools used by Whicks will reflect the symbolism. Staff-toppers for practiced magic users will often be crafted by Whicks who excel in creating flourishing details and aesthetics that resemble these gargoyles.


Prompt Story


Part 1 - Prepare for the long night

Set up decoration for the Long Night!

Your goal is to decorate! You’ll want to set up your home to be the absolute best place to party the night away! The Long Night can be scary for those who dislike the darkness, and many believe that decorating with shining lights helps to ease those fears. Some though may relish in this darkness, electing to embrace it in their décor and celebrations or avoid such festivities completely.

  • Decorations often involve candles in some way as they serve to provide quick and simple communication, but traditional string lights, pumpkins and other items with candles in them are just as common. Plenty of other goofy and scary decorations also line homes and abodes, and during this period of darkness Skireans also create plenty of games to partake in! People will often set up decorations and lights along paths in towns or cities to aid travelers, and these decorations don’t always need to be indoors or on homes.

Part 2 - Unexpected Visitors

Obtain your lantern! Craft, purchase, or discover what lantern you plan to use to help Suteo the Whick!

Suteo, a very exhausted and stressed Whick has appeared! She mentions to those around that she’s enlisting help in collecting some of the wisps that seem to be spawning in the area more than usual. She offers to help teach, create, sell, or find a lantern that matches your desires.

  • The lanterns must be clearly lanterns, but can be stylized or decorated in ways that are unique and match your character(s)!

Prompt 3 - Search and Gather

Help gather some stray wisps using a Whick’s lantern!

With a lantern now in hand, get out there and try and gather up as many wisps as you can! Sure it can be scary - but it can also be a lot of fun! Maybe you can challenge Suteo to see who can collect the most wisps…

  • Wisps are colorless and white! You’ll want to draw your lantern in some manner here as well. Collecting just needs to be shown tracking a wisp or guiding/capturing a wisp into a lantern in some manner.

Prompt 4- Relax and Celebrate

Job well done! Celebrate the Long Night after having spent so much time hunting down those wisps!

Things seem back to normal - so let’s get to the celebration already! Even Suteo seems more relaxed after everything and is willing to join you in some of the celebrations before returning to her mentor if you wanted to have her around for a bit longer. Otherwise, it's time for the REAL Long Night celebrations to unfold!

  • Celebration can be a number of things such as enjoying a feast, watching movies, playing games, partaking in antics while costumed, or just enjoying the comfortable events of the Long Night in a quiet place.
After completing all four prompts:
You have the choice of a completion prize detailed below

Never-Ending Treat


Applies the following trait to one design. 


Stinger Sourpop


Applies one of the following trait to one design. 


🎃Side Prompt - Costume Celebration🎃

Costumes were introduced into the mix of tradition when many would find wisps attracted to the life of others. It was believed costumes would help deter any wisps from gathering or “targeting” any sole individual and following them. While not really the case, many still believe this and thus use costumes to traverse the dark in peace and pretend to be someone they aren't, setting up candles and many other decorations to help. Sometimes these are used to play pranks or scare others, as many find it an enjoyable time to pretend!
 

Draw or write about an Official Skire Character (Yours, someone else's) dressing up for the Long Night! NPCs are not available for this prompt.

  • Does your character create their own costume?

[MYO Sale] Halloween 2023

Halloween 2023 MYO Slot Sale


[Form is filled!]

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR

Hello everyone and happy Almost Halloween!! It’s been such a fun month thus far doing the recent events on the new site and adjusting to it all; I hope you guys have been having as much fun as we have! It’s been lovely to see so many precious entries and exciting stories from you all. There’s been so many entries already and we still have another month to go!

But now I bring you to our classic sale time of the year: the Halloween slot sales. >:3c

This year is interesting since we have items to allow standard slots with no clear species until chosen by the person who owns the item! We hope this makes it easier on everyone deciding what they’d like as they have time to try out multiple thoughts across different species and get fun ideas as they go along. I know I’m not free from suddenly changing up a species when I concept something myself KJBDSG I will often start with one and realize I have fun thoughts on how it’d be in a different species.

I’m always very thankful for the excitement towards these slots as it’s a blast to get to see what everyone creates!! It also vastly helps me out with taxes which I’m forever grateful for ;v;
I’m looking forward to the future with getting more options for slots and in general for things as we continue with the new site and all the fun things happening on it.

A link to the form and info about the raffles will all be provided below!!

OH BUT YES Expect some delay on my response times and expect my absence in the later evening!
I’m expecting to be busy the evenings of the 27th and the 28th (Friday and Saturday) so you may see some delay in my responses! 
I’ll absolutely be sure to continue to handle communication in the earlier parts of the days though!

I’ll update the very top of this post when slots seem closed!

 


Claiming Rules v
  • Claiming Rules:
      • You need a Skire.Club account to claim and own a MYO slot.
        Contact will be through Skire.Club on confirmation of your slot and payment method!

      • The form will be First-Come-First-Served.

      • Only one slot per person within the first 24 hours. You can have one other person help you claim a slot, but if that person wishes to claim a slot for themselves they need to resubmit the form again.

      • Slots will be Standard 1R 2UC for $100, Myth slots will be $300 for 1M 2R 2UC
        Myth MYO slots will require you to pick your species upon purchase!

      • There are 27 Standard MYO Slots for Non-Owners, 27 Standard MYO slots for Free for All with 3 Myth MYO Slots for Non-Owners and 3 Myth MYO Slots for Free for All.

      • You cannot get a myth and a standard slot within the first 24 hours; it is considered multiple! You can after 24 hours have passed.

      • After 24 hours since post, if the slots have not been filled then secondary slots will be open for people who wish to buy multiple.

        • Standard slots will be an item that allows you to pick your species at any point.

        • Myth slots must be chosen before given the slot and do not yet have a choice item!

        • As a reminder, once you choose your species you cannot reverse this decision. Only select once you are sure!

      • You will be given an item that you turn into a MYO slot once you decide your species via "opening" the item with chosen species. Please note that these items are not tradable; if you wish to buy a slot as a gift you will need to let me know in the form!
      • The species bases will be provided to you to use if you desire - they're optional though so no worries if you don't want to!

    Ownership specific:
    • If you already own at least one of any currently active Skire species (CCCat, Crook, Gravent, or Nautipod) you are considered an Already-Owner and will be entered in the FFA (Free-For-All) slot section. If you do not own any active Skire species currently you will be entered in the Non-Owner section specifically.

    • Only N/O users have their own unique section for slots, once the N/O slots have been filled, if any lingering N/Os claimed earlier than any FFA slots via timestamp, N/Os get pooled into the FFA slots.

    • Once the non-owner specific slot queue has been filled, the timestamps will be used to judge who gets the next slot in the Free-For-All sections if not already filled by the FFA-entry queue. This means a non-owner will automatically be placed into the free-for-all claim section if their timestamp allows them to have claimed before the free-for-all section has been filled.

    • You cannot get a myth and a standard slot within the first 24 hours; it is considered multiple! You can after 24 hours have passed.

    • If for any reason you input something incorrect on the form please let me know in a note when/if I contact you. Please ideally do not add a new submission as I won’t know which one is the correct one and it will be time-stamped differently on the response sheet.

    • You must be able to pay within 24 hours of me confirming you have claimed the slot successfully. (If you do not, we will move down to the next person in the queue)

    • Do not claim if you cannot pay within the 24 hours - payment plans are not accepted for these slots.


Slot Rules v
  • Slot Rules:
      • You may NOT resell the slot until it has been given an approved design or has been given requested permission for resale.

      • You may NOT trade the slot until it has been given an approved design.

      • Gifting a slot must be stated before payment is sent or upon claiming. If you wish to keep the gift anonymous/secret to the person you’re gifting it to, please tell me in the note when I ask for your paypal email to invoice.

      • After you create your Skire CS and it has been approved, you have a 2 week cooldown till you can trade/sell the character. Remember to only ever resell for what you bought it for!
        *Important to remember: Our rules have always allowed you to resell a character for higher than you bought it for if you confirm proof of purchase any commissioned pieces you personally have bought of your character with an admin.

      • There is NO time limit to complete your MYO.

      • You MAY have others help you design your slot.

      • You may also have someone design your slot for you! Please make sure they follow the rules to the slot and species, however!

      • Please: do not post your design publicly until it has been accepted/approved and has gotten its written approval by an admin! In order to get your slot approved you must note the group!!
        *If you commission someone to design your slot for you then you may show us proof of the purchased commission and have it added to your character's resale price.

      • *Your slot will NOT be approved if it is recognized to be heavily influenced by/duplicating a pre-existing character from either a personal OC or a franchise - additionally hateful themes or imagery against minorities (racism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, etc.) will not be tolerated and will not be approved and could risk you being graylisted or banned from the species.

      • If your design is approved and then found to be heavily referencing or duplicating a pre-existing character after it is approved then you may still be asked to change it after the fact. If the design changes hands and is later recognized then the creator will likely be spoken to, but the new owner of the design may not be requested to change the design as they were not the ones responsible for creating it and we don't feel it right to punish/request change from them if they don't/didn't know. This may change case-by-case depending on severity of the issue.
