What a Load of Shift 2024

Posted 2 weeks ago :: Last edited 1 week ago by Noirmori

WHAT A LOAD OF SHIFT 2024!

 

WHAT A LOAD OF SHIFT 2024!

It's that time of year again! Darhaskos doesn't usually like to come out and play, but it seems that he was in the mood for one particularly pesky prank!
 
A handful of Ketucari have woken up transformed into new bodies! What in the world is happening? It appears Darhaskos has put you into the shoes of the other races of Velukaelo. The magic is strong, but is bound to wear off in a few hours. Maybe you can learn to harness this skill and use the magic as your own? Or maybe you just want to go home and sleep it off? (You weenie. Get out of bed.)
EVENT ENDS 4-30-24
 
This event is reoccurring, and will happen again in April 2025.
 
WINNERS: Will be announced here at the end of the event!
 
Note: If you want, you may enter multiple times with one ketucari*.
This is for those who want only one or two ketucari changed, or do not own more than one. After your initial entry that shows their new form, you can do more pieces depicting them for additional entries!! HOWEVER, these still counts towards your entry limit. Keep that in mind!
 
You're only able to get up to five tickets for this event.
 
*If entering multiple time for a humanoid form with one ketucari, they must either be the same race in each depiction, or you must be very clear in the descriptions which race their shift form is as unless they have the Glamour lineage skill a ketucari may only have one shift form of each type (Humanoid, Fauna, God). Prompts do not have to be "new" (as in posted after the event starts) however they cannot have been sumitted for previous years, used with Darhaskos's Talismans, or with Small Flip Coins.
 

ART PROMPT

Darhaskos has played a trick on you! Your ketucari has been transformed into one of Velukaelo's races. Draw your ketucari as one of the following. (Your choice!)
Human
Akadri
Jordskar
Hibridi
Heldyr
Lucedarian
Ketu-Nomaly
 
NEW: As of 2021, you may instead transform your ketucari into one of Velukaelo's fauna (or any earth animal)!
You may make a reference, a simple standing sketch, a full illustration, or anything in between! All are acceptable.
Fauna Forms cannot have any extra traits or tells, such as danuoc scales carrying over between forms.
 
Must be full body.
70% of the body must be visible. (For those of you who hate drawing hands!)
Must be colored. Does not have to have shading.
While humanoid shift forms don't need to resemble the ketucari, please remember that animal forms Do.
Yes, you are allowed to include an outfit! Darhaskos isn't that cruel.
Nudity allowed. Please censor The Bits and apply the correct filter on whatever site you're hosting on.
Please be mature about this and do not include anything that would be considered erotic, thank you.
Submit your entries HERE
 

WRITING PROMPT

Darhaskos has played a trick on you! Your Ketucari has been transformed into one of Velukaelo's races. (Your choice!)
Human
Akadri
Jordskar
Hibridi
Heldyr
Lucedarian
Ketu-Nomaly
NEW: As of 2021, you may instead transform your ketucari into one of Velukaelo's fauna (or any earth animal)!

Must have a decent description of what the Ketucari looks like in their new form at some point in the literature piece.
While humanoid shift forms don't need to resemble the ketucari, please remember that animal forms Do.
Roleplays are allowed, as long as the above requirements are met!
Submit your entries HERE
 

RULES

You may transform up to five (5) of your own Ketucari.
This limit still applies if somebody else designs your ketucari's new forms for you. You can draw/write for your own Ketucari, or for others. Please get permission before designing for other players.
The five Ketucari transformation limit only applies to your own Ketucari, you may design for as many people as you desire, as long as they do not go over their FIVE limit. You are allowed to do more than one art/lit piece. Do as many as you wish, but keep the above limit in mind. If a Ketucari with this new skill is transferred to a different player, they will keep the skill, and the new owner will be able to redesign their new form.
 

REWARDS

You will be able to draw your ketucari in this new form when participating in all future group activities!
They will be able to tap into their magic to shapeshift into this new form at will. This is entirely optional, but can be considered canon!
You will also be entered into an RNG giveaway.
 
Two members will win herbal brews (strong or normal,) and one lucky member will win two starter slots of their choice!
Three members will win their choice of a Small Flip Coin or a Darhaskos's Talisman!
The more entries you do, the more tickets you receive.
Five tickets max.
Raffle tickets go to the owner of the ketucari being transformed.
 
 
Lastly, we will be raffling off an import to one lucky grand prize winner!
IN ORDER TO BE ENTERED TO WIN THIS KETUCARI, YOU MUST COMMENT YOUR ENTRIES ON THIS THREAD: POST HERE WITH AT LEAST ONE COMPLETED ENTRY TO ENTER FOR THE RAFFLE KET

The Wanderer Slot Raffle Season 5

Posted 1 month ago :: Last edited 2 weeks ago by Noirmori

The Wanderers

    A pack of young adult ketucari has recently been spotted roaming the continents, seeking to explore, learn, and socialize wherever they go. Calling themselves the Wanderers, their aim to experience all walks of life may cause their paths to cross with your very own ketucari! 

Current Wanderers

 


 

Every month, the group will be raffling off one slot to each of the above ketucari!

Bullet; White There are no restrictions on the usage of these slots.

Bullet; White Each slot also comes with a "built in" Sundisk of Nyssa, so that you may breed them with a male or female ketucari. They also do not require a litter guard.

Bullet; White You may enter once per ketucari, but you may only win one Wanderer slot total for the month.

Bullet; White Wanderers may be bred together if you happen to collect more than one slot over the course of a few months.

Bullet; White Wanderers are guaranteed to pass on their new gene(s), regardless of rarity, to at least one cub in the litter in breedings they take part in during the first 6 months that they’re active. New genes will be guaranteed to drop through September.

How to Enter

Bullet; White Simply create a piece that meets our minimum Group Submission Requirements showing one of your ketucari interacting with the Wanderer who's slot you would like to win! Collaborations are allowed, but in order to count for all involved parties, each must have a ketucari present in the piece. These pieces can double as any group activity but cannot be used in a second raffle here or in another group.

Bullet; White Only one Wanderer may be included per piece (ie, you cannot depict all six in one piece and use it as an entry for all of them). However, if collaborating pieces, more than one Wanderer may be included at a rate of One Per Person. However each player may only use one piece to enter for one Wanderer.
-i.e. Players 1, 2 and 3 collab on a piece with Hydrangea, Aletha, and Jed. Player 1 can use the piece to enter for Hydrangea, Aletha, or Jed, but not all three. Player 2 can do the same, as well as Player 3.
 
Bullet; White Remember that until they're raffled off, Wanderers are group owned. R rated entries and entries that are found to be disrespectful to either the Wanderer or any real life person, collective group of people, or culture, can be refused and rejected. They're allowed to be portrayed as creepy, or as villains if you like, but they Must be portrayed with respect, if only for the sake of the future owners.
 

Bullet; White Entries cannot double-dip into multiple raffles unless stated otherwise. Noted exceptions are the Annual WaLoS Raffle, and the Annual Eros and Firn slot raffles. Any other Event Raffles are a "no" unless stated otherwise.
This includes the raffles and draw to adopts in other species.


This mostly applies to literature, as it's harder to have blatant disrespect in visual mediums. However, as a bit of a rubric for the sorts of things that might ping as disrespectful:

-Non-spoken lines making fun of the character (such as calling them "gross")
-high number of "in character" or spoken lines making fun of the character
-calling them "it" (or any other pronoun) in a way that deprives the character of personhood (some Wanderers may use it/its! Respect that if/when it ocurrs!) (Your character is allowed to be mistaken, please try to be clear this is a character mistake and not an authorial one)
-entries that feel like they were written from a place of Disliking the character (we understand this is subjective, and other factors will be looked at)
-entries using the character as a mouthpiece for any sorts of views that deny other characters (or any people, groups of people, or cultures) personhood and basic dignity
-entries using the character as a vessel to insult other characters, players, admins, or other species
-portraying them as an obvious charicature of any ethnic group.
-uses slurs against them or involves them using slurs.

 
Bullet; White There will be up to 6 total winners, labelled 1-6. Winners will be asked to list the Wanderers they want in order of preference based on which number they have and who they put in entries for (you cannot put in a Sylphy entry and win Kurra, for example, but if you only entered for Jed you get priority on Jed).
-i.e. if you are the only person to put in an entry on both Hydrangea and Jed, you may choose which slot you would prefer to get, instead of receiving Jed by default.
-As of Season 5, in the event of low slot turnout players may win multiple slots per month! e.g. if you are the only entrant for Aletha and Kurra, you get both slots!

Bullet; White You may include multiple entries in one comment.

Bullet; White Comment your entry here:

 


Start-Of-Season Bonus Raffle

For March and April, we have a bonus raffle, due to accidentally not including the Deep Well modifier in our list of wanderers! (oops)

Skaði has come out from Rastyn's territories in Aegrus to join the Wanderers for a couple of months! They have the Deep Well modifer, Brow horns, and Spur horns from this year, as well as Noisy Wrought and Maltese from last year!

You can enter at this comment for a slot to Skaði - this is totally free and does not take an art entry! This also does not count against your wanderer entries - you can win a wanderer slot and a Skaði slot.

3 Slots will be raffled off per month this way!

Skaði is a regular starter and will not be raffled off for ownership.


 

Yearly Import Raffle
-CURRENTLY Closed-

 

Each year, the Wanderers will retire from their journey and seek a permanent residence as new pack members take their place. That means they could even end up with you!


Before we get started we need to establish a few things, however. As the Wanderers are not just fancy imports but characters you all have been developing through the year, we want to make the ownership rules clear.


Bullet; White Wanderers may not be redesigned. Tokens may be added if applicable, and accessories, Elemental Blessings, and new backgrounds can be added, but the actual character cannot be redesigned.

Bullet; White Wanderers may Not be resold for USD.

Bullet; White No Deceasing the import. If you don't want them, gift/trade them to someone else or give them back to the group. Imports returned to the group will not be re-raffled without your approval.

Bullet; White The New Owner may Not change their Wanderer's Attunement without use of the Attunement Shift item.

Bullet; White The New Owner will need to complete their Wanderer's Breeding Eligibility. Their Breeding Comment will be "locked" before they are transferred to their new owner. Slots written by the Matriarchs-Haunt account will not count against the Wanderer's used or total Slots.

Bullet; White The new Owner must be aware that their Wanderer will not keep their built in Guardian or Sun Disk.

Bullet; White If a Wanderer is somehow Unclaimed it will remain group-owned as a starter.

Bullet; White The New Owner must be aware that their Wanderer will maintain their "Starter" status and may be added to lineages as needed.

With that established, here is how

 


How to Enter
-CURRENTLY Closed-


Bullet; White As with the Slot Raffle, you must create a piece that meets our minimum Group Submission Requirements showing one of your ketucari interacting with the Wanderer who's slot you would like to win! THESE PIECES MAY BE COMMISSIONED. Commissioned entries may be used by both Commissioner and Commissionee as long as each has a ket present in the piece. Collaborations are allowed, but in order to count for all involved parties, each must have a ketucari present in the piece. These pieces can double as any group activity but cannot be used in a second raffle here or in another group.

Bullet; White UNLIKE with the Slots, you may include up to 3 Wanderers in an entry and it will count for all of them.

Bullet; White There will be up to 6 total winners, labelled 1-6. Winners will be asked to list the Wanderers they want in order of preference based on which number they have and who they put in entries for (you cannot put in a Geiger entry and win Leslie, for example, but if you only entered for Geiger you get priority on Geiger).
A player can win more than one Wanderer in the following conditions:
- They are the sole entrant for more than one Wanderer
- There are fewer than 6 total entrants and multiple people entered for multiple Wanderers
- If there is somehow a "leftover" Wanderer who has an entry in, but for whatever reason they didn't go out in the First or Second rolling phase.
 

Reputation System

Starting in 2024, Wanderers will have a Reputation system. What this is, is essentially a reward for commitment towards a given Wanderer. Entering for Slots to that Wanderer will increase your chances of winning Ownership of them if you enter the ownership raffle.

If you have Two entries for slots to any specific Wanderer throughout the year, you can gain +1 entry into the Ownership raffle for that particular Wanderer.

How this works in practice is essentially increased priority over others who Don't have that +1, where if you and one other player both enter for Sylphy and no other Wanderer, and no one else entered for Sylphy, and you have the +1 and they don't, you're going to be the one to receive Sylphy.
If you enter for multiple Wanderers, and we have a year where there's competition for them and we actually need to use the raffle list, your name will be entered twice so you have a higher chance of winning.

Current Wanderers are due to be adopted out on March 1st, 2025

Check it out and read more about bounties on the dA page!

Current Events

Flash Sale Extended

The Flash Sale for Kitty has been extended until April 7th! If you weren't already aware of it, we're having a fundraiser for our admin IIIXKitsuneXIII due to some unexpected vet bills. There was an additional cost, and so the sale was extended. If you have anything you need to get, feel free to check it out!

Pack Revamp Released

The pack revamp is released! Territory Wars now have PVP again, Deity Allegiances are easier and better than ever, the pack inventory is on site, and more! Check out the info on it in this news page!

Ocean Shadows Claims

If you haven't already, and you participated in the event, send in your claims for Ocean Shadows! Instructions on how are in the Ocean Shadows post!

Singing Vale Raid Soon

The Singing Vale is now at 230/250 points towards a raid at time of writing this - we'll continue to alert you to a raid happening somewhat soon until it hits! Get your ketucari's skills and armor ready to take on Hianlian! Remember that Hianlian's attacks will be scaled to your ketucari's armor, so even low-armor ketucari can enter - armor does affect some things, however, such as amount healed!

Anarchie is planning an unofficial (player-run, not group-run) siege on the Singing Vale via the Territory Wars feature in two separate packs at the same time, to get the raid points up faster. Please feel free to ask eir about it if you're interested.

That's all for now! See you in April for WaLoS!

Flash Sale for Kitty Southpaw

Posted 2 months ago :: Last edited 1 month ago by Anarchie

Hey, we're running a flash sale! Sorry for coming out of nowhere, but our admin iiixkitsunexiii had some unexpected vet bills come up for Kitty, and we wanted to run a sale to see if we could help offset the cost.

All proceeds from this sale go directly to Kitsu, for Kitty.
Any left over from his care will go back into the group funds for things like server space, commissioning backgrounds, and keeping Core up to date.
Current price of his care is $1,500 USD, Kitsu is looking to recoup just $700-$1200 of that to be able to pay other important bills, however every little bit helps!


Please allow 48 hours for your purchase confirmation.

 


END DATE

The end date of this sale will be April 7th at 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time.

 

PAYMENT

  • Payment is through either paypal or PayPal Invoices. Invoices do not require a Paypal account so please let us know if you need that option!

STARTER SLOTS

COMMENT HERE TO PURCHASE A STARTER SLOT

 


ROULETTE LITTERS - 15 USD EACH

 

  • “Roulette litter” means that the sire and dam are randomly chosen out of all available starters. Specific starters cannot be requested, as this defeats the purpose of the randomness.
  • Each litter will contain 2-4 cubs.
  • An admin will randomly roll which sire and which dam will be used for your litter, then roll the resulting cubs. This is done purely by RNG, which will also be determining the litter size. The parents, as well as the litter itself, will be posted to Breeding Requests and you will be notified once it's up! After that, what you decide to do with the cubs is up to you! They are yours to keep, sell, trade, etc. 

COMMENT HERE TO PURCHASE A ROULETTE LITTER

 


WILD CUBS - 8 USD EACH

  • Wild cubs work exactly like a wild ketucari you’d find with the Charming skill! Their genes are randomly generated and they may or may not have unknown lineage depending on their rarity.

COMMENT HERE TO PURCHASE A WILD CUB

 


Veluchasm Throwback - 8 USD EACH, One Per Player

  • Purchase a Ketixi breeding slot here to create an off-season ketixi! Per usual this does not use up any breeding slots for the rixixi or ketucari involved. You'll need to provide your own Ixi and Ketucari slots, however, or request a starter from an admin in either group!

Comment here to breed a new ketixi

The Wanderer Slot Raffle Season 4

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 2 months ago by Noirmori

The Wanderers

    A pack of young adult ketucari has recently been spotted roaming the continents, seeking to explore, learn, and socialize wherever they go. Calling themselves the Wanderers, their aim to experience all walks of life may cause their paths to cross with your very own ketucari! 

Current Wanderers

 


 

Every month, the group will be raffling off one slot to each of the above ketucari!

Bullet; White There are no restrictions on the usage of these slots.

Bullet; White Each slot also comes with a "built in" Sundisk of Nyssa, so that you may breed them with a male or female ketucari. They also do not require a litter guard.

Bullet; White You may enter once per ketucari, but you may only win one Wanderer slot total for the month.

Bullet; White Wanderers may be bred together if you happen to collect more than one slot over the course of a few months.

How to Enter

Bullet; White Simply create a piece that meets our minimum Group Submission Requirements showing one of your ketucari interacting with the Wanderer who's slot you would like to win! Collaborations are allowed, but in order to count for all involved parties, each must have a ketucari present in the piece.

Bullet; White Only one Wanderer may be included per piece (ie, you cannot depict all six in one piece and use it as an entry for all of them). However, if collaborating pieces, more than one Wanderer may be included at a rate of One Per Person. However each player may only use one piece to enter for one Wanderer.
-i.e. Players 1, 2 and 3 collab on a piece with Manghild, Liatris, and Hen'ri. Player 1 can use the piece to enter for Manghild, Liatris, or Hen'ri, but not all three. Player 2 can do the same, as well as Player 3.
 
Bullet; White Remember that until they're raffled off, Wanderers are group owned. R rated entries and entries that are found to be disrespectful to either the Wanderer or any real life person, collective group of people, or culture, can be refused and rejected. They're allowed to be portrayed as creepy, or as villains if you like, but they Must be portrayed with respect, if only for the sake of the future owners.
 

Bullet; White Entries cannot double-dip into multiple raffles unless stated otherwise. Noted exceptions are the Annual WaLoS Raffle, and the Annual Eros and Firn slot raffles. Any other Event Raffles are a "no" unless stated otherwise.
This includes the raffles and draw to adopts in other species.


This mostly applies to literature, as it's harder to have blatant disrespect in visual mediums. However, as a bit of a rubric for the sorts of things that might ping as disrespectful:

-Non-spoken lines making fun of the character (such as calling them "gross")
-high number of "in character" or spoken lines making fun of the character
-calling them "it" (or any other pronoun) in a way that deprives the character of personhood
-entries that feel like they were written from a place of Disliking the character (we understand this is subjective, and other factors will be looked at)
-entries using the character as a mouthpiece for any sorts of views that deny other characters (or any people, groups of people, or cultures) personhood and basic dignity
-entries using the character as a vessel to insult other characters, players, admins, or other species

 
Bullet; White There will be up to 6 total winners, labelled 1-6. Winners will be asked to list the Wanderers they want in order of preference based on which number they have and who they put in entries for (you cannot put in a Livia entry and win Fionn, for example, but if you only entered for Bun you get priority on Bun).
-i.e. if you are the only person to put in an entry on both Temotepis and Cape, you may choose which slot you would prefer to get, instead of receiving Temotepis by default.

Bullet; White You may include multiple entries in one comment.

Bullet; White Comment your entry here:
AUGUST 2023
JUNE 2023

 


 

Yearly Import Raffle
-CURRENTLY OPEN-

 

Each year, the Wanderers will retire from their journey and seek a permanent residence as new pack members take their place. That means they could even end up with you!


Before we get started we need to establish a few things, however. As the Wanderers are not just fancy imports but characters you all have been developing through the year, we want to make the ownership rules clear.


Bullet; White Wanderers may not be redesigned. Tokens may be added if applicable, and accessories, Elemental Blessings, and new backgrounds can be added, but the actual character cannot be redesigned.

Bullet; White Wanderers may Not be resold for USD.

Bullet; White No Deceasing the import. If you don't want them, gift/trade them to someone else or give them back to the group. Imports returned to the group will not be re-raffled without your approval/

Bullet; White The New Owner may Not change their Wanderer's Attunement without use of the Attunement Shift item.

Bullet; White The New Owner will need to complete their Wanderer's Breeding Eligibility. Their Breeding Comment will be "locked" before they are transferred to their new owner. Slots written by the Matriarchs-Haunt account will not count against the Wanderer's used or total Slots.

Bullet; White The new Owner must be aware that their Wanderer will not keep their built in Guardian or Sun Disk.

Bullet; White If a Wanderer is somehow Unclaimed it will remain group-owned as a starter.

Bullet; White The New Owner must be aware that their Wanderer will maintain their "Starter" status and be added to lineages as needed.

With that established, here is how

 


How to Enter
-CURRENTLY OPEN-


Bullet; White As with the Slot Raffle, you must create a piece that meets our minimum Group Submission Requirements showing one of your ketucari interacting with the Wanderer who's slot you would like to win! THESE PIECES MAY BE COMMISSIONED. Commissioned entries may be used by both Commissioner and Commissionee as long as each has a ket present in the piece. Collaborations are allowed, but in order to count for all involved parties, each must have a ketucari present in the piece.

Bullet; White UNLIKE with the Slots, you may include up to 3 Wanderers in an entry and it will count for all of them.

Bullet; White There will be up to 6 total winners, labelled 1-6. Winners will be asked to list the Wanderers they want in order of preference based on which number they have and who they put in entries for (you cannot put in a Geiger entry and win Leslie, for example, but if you only entered for Geiger you get priority on Geiger).

Bullet; White Comment your entry here: >CURRENTLY OPEN

Current Wanderers are due to be adopted out on March 1st, 2024

 

Pack Update!

Posted 2 months ago :: Last edited 2 months ago by Anarchie

Hey, everyone! Big news for packs! We know that they've been a little underutilized as of late, but we're hoping that this update will make them a little easier to use and also more entertaining!

Packs Now On Site

You can find the main information at the Pack Hub! This is linked on the dA page and will be in the resources dropdown within the next couple of days.

Most of the things are right where we left them, just ported to a site page, but there are some changes!

Pack Pages

Packs all have their own pages now, which can be found here! This page will be linked somewhere obvious soon, our sitemaster is working on it! (: If you want a thumbnail or new rank added to your pack, please feel free to contact an admin and we'll get you set up! (The thumbnails added now were mostly added to test the feature)

You can view player packs the regular way too, on the Player Pack list! This is just a neat new feature.

We also have a heavily updated Group-Owned Packs list (previously called Canon Packs), which includes the newer packs displayed on starters more recently!

PVP

Territory Wars PVP is back! We figured out a couple of ways to do it that would be fair to both packs. We now have Wagers and Sieges.

For Wagers, both packs must already have territory. Each pack wagers one of their own territory subzones, and the other pack will attempt their claim in that subzone. Whoever has the most successes in the end will win the wagered territory, and they will not lose their wagered territory!

Sieges occur when both packs want the same territory. The claim works similarly to a PVE Territory Wars claim, except that KVKs, if done, should be between the pack members. Like wagers, the pack with the most successes will win the territory!

If two packs doing PVP are owned by the same person, this is allowed, but multiple people have to join in the claim in both packs to make things fair.

Pack Hoard

The pack hoard is now handled through the site! Members who have a ketucari that leads a pack should be able to transfer items in and out of their pack hoard. If you want to add a treasurer (or the same role in another name) to your pack, please ask an admin! We would be happy to help.

Pack hoards should generally be used to aid the pack, and pack hoards being used solely for personal gain may be cause for a warning or ban. Please be courteous!

Allying Deities

Allying Deities is now easier than ever! Offerings have been boosted by 10x, and trade goods have been boosted by various different rates as well! Also, Deities now ally permanently, and can ally to multiple packs at once! As a result, the threshhold to ally tier 2 and 3 deities is now higher. We hope this makes the feature far more enjoyable and easy to use!

Misc. New Stuff

Other than that, most of the new stuff is that creating a pack and buying slots for it are now handled through comments on site rather than in dA notes!

Go ahead and check it out if you feel like it, we hope you enjoy it and that it's convenient for you!

Ocean Shadows

Posted 5 months ago :: Last edited 2 months ago by Matriarchs-Haunt

EVENT: OCEAN SHADOWS

INTRODUCTION

The western winds are blowing more sweetly since the fog around Zolkanis has dissipated. Sea travel in the west has gotten easier, and the scars the War left on the world are healing better than ever before.

A new faction has also joined the playing field: Since no records exist of the western continent in known cartography, some adventurous souls have formed the Cartography Guild! The Guild has spent the last several months making new maps of the world using detailed equipment and laser readings. Their latest work: carefully exploring Paschmahaa to make topographical maps and take magical energy readings of the sea floor.
Which is where things get… strange.

The seafloor is brimming with magical energy.

Unprecedented amounts of magical energy -- and after some dredging, technology that hasn’t been seen since the Akadri wars.

Now, the Cartography Guild is partnering with Kembali Biotech to learn more, and Kembali has once again sent out invitations for an expedition.

We can only hope it goes better than the last one…

.

.

.

A crowd has been gathered in Zolk’s Arena in response to the invitation. It’s the only place large enough to house this many ketucari at once, not to mention the akadri, heldyr, hibridi, jordskar, lucedarians, and k-nomalies who have taken up the remaining bits of space. On a crudely erected stage at the front of the Arena, a grizzled smooth kadin with an eyepatch and several missing limbs looks over the gathered crowd. Beside her stands a hologram that might be familiar to some: Emdee Dielle. Both are wearing their friendliest smiles, but it is the kadin that stands at the podium to speak into the microphone.

“GREETINGS!” She booms suddenly, the microphone screeching. “MY NAM-”

Emdee’s hologram taps her arm and she cuts off. Emdee whispers something, and the kadin flushes, fluffs her feathers, and shakes herself. “Apologies, Indoor voices are not my strength--My name is Kartha, and I am the founder and lead explorer of the Cartography Guild! I’m very grateful that you all have gathered here today! My Guild has been working tirelessly since the fading of the fog to provide a more accurate map of Velukaelo, and we have started with Paschmahaa! Which is what brings us here. My Guild is small, and we’re making big discoveries! Too big, and worrisome. We ask that you join our expedition and report what you find! We will provide room, board, pay, and you can keep whatever spoils you find! All we require is that you be willing to get your paws wet!”

There are murmurs, questions.

Kartha listens to them: “What sort of danger are we putting ourselves in?”, “What’s the reward?”, “When is all of this happening?”, “What’s got you guys so spooked?”

Kartha listens. Answers. “The short version: Potentially mortal peril. There’s monsters in that ocean. Animals the size of the Gods. Bugs the size of armatherium. I’m only one ketucari, and my Guild? We ain’t fighters. We need bodyguards. We need more hands on the maps, we need more hands on the tools. And well, Something is watching us in those waters, and that Something is why I contacted Emdee. See,” Karta turns, motioning to her left, and a photo flashes onto the projector screen behind her. Dark waters obscure the shape of whatever is there. It’s large, front heavy with four legs, with a long tail tipped with thagomizers. It doesn’t look like it belongs in the water.
Its eyes are reflecting the flash of the camera.
“These creatures--we think they may be cousins to our kind: Offspring of the gods like our ryno and danuoc friends. But they’re skittish and surprisingly fast. We can’t keep up with them and they vanish deeper into earth, below where our equipment can take us. That’s why we need your help. If you can, we’d like someone to meet even one of these strangers--confirm what they are--and if they are indeed our cousins, try to re-establish contact that we suspect has been lost since the Akadri War.”

Subzones: Oversea, Hataar’s Drop Off


The black waters of Paschmahaa lap at your ship. Kartha could only take a few ketucari onto each ship, but she was true to her word. The Galleons are HUGE and have been built so that a ketucari can be comfortable. Everyone has been allowed to look at the weird energy readings if they so wished.
And now the time has come: Time To Get In The Water. You’ve been given gear to detect magical and electromagnetic readings. You’ve been given swim gear, you’ve been given a waterproof watch that reads your biometrics to make sure you don’t drown yourself by going too deep, and you’ve even been given a waterproof pencil on special paper as well as Several waterproof cameras and camera bots, and goggles to protect your eyes. Kartha is suiting up right next to you.
“Remember, we’re here looking into a particular creature.” Once more, Kartha shows the picture. “If at all possible, find one of our watchers! And follow them!”
You’re put in the small research boats and turned loose into the toxic black waves.

The waters are Dark. You can’t tell if it’s soot, ash, the centuries of toxic fog, or the lack of plants.
It’s probably the lack of plants, the water was much greener near Leto.
The water is dark, but you understand now why the ship is parked a kilometer away and why your team was put out in little boats: It looks like someone sank the Singing Vale: spires and mountains and crests of stone split the ocean floor into valleys. The spires reach up to the surface, where they become islands brimming with lush greenery.
There is no “up” in this place, unless you’re at the surface. The water is dark, murky, it’s hard to see the light at the surface. And you know it goes Deeper.

In the distance, something roars. You hope it’s not the domain guardian.


Your task is simple: explore every nook and cranny of this dark ocean. Hope that the Guardian--Kartha called them “Chayandhal”?--is friendly rather than hostile.
And most importantly, investigate the fauna. Kartha said there’s something Big, like, Twice the size of a Ryno big, and well. Something keeps Roaring.

Phase 1 End.


You’ve been investigating for weeks. Long enough that you’re beginning to get mighty homesick, and longing for the land. For these weeks you’ve seen nothing but dark waters; no the small islands don’t count, thank you. On the bright side the team has gotten good at diving! It seems everyone has spotted the strange creature that keeps to the shadows at least once, now and curiosity is piqued.

 

Also a bunch of explorers have decided they’re taking some local fauna home--Kartha seems less than pleased about this and keeps looking nervously to the north where Chayandhal is believed to be patrolling--and others have been getting a huge haul of ore and stone, but that’s not why you’re still here.

 

No, the reason you’re still in these waters is because one of the explorers found an artifact. At first glance no one thought much of it. Even Kartha almost dismissed it out of hand as unimportant! Before she recognized the shape -- and opened her mouth in a wide grin.

Caked in mud and grime and covered with dark circuitry, was an old gun. Akadri make, but Different somehow. It’s long dead and dormant. The Engineers take a look at it, bright eyed and bushy tailed, and there are many questions asked.

 

The ketucari who discovered the turret says they found it around a strange undersea mountain, near the trench in the shadow of Zolkanis.

Efforts redouble, the search is focused. The strange undersea mountain is located--a massive rugged dome surrounded by flat shelves extending outwards. These shelves are indented and the dips have collected pools of heavier water thick with seit and huge fish: The rims almost look like the paths around rice farms!

And there are Lights here. More machinery. Robots? That tend to seit and fish. Some are inactive, abandoned, crowded around and on top of more turrets.
Active turrets.

Near the mountain proper, and off further west directly under Zolkanis’s floating islands, are Active turrets. Their sights track the expedition part. Getting too close causes them to glow an eerie blue and wail. And when they wail, other turrets whir and wail into life, illuminating the sea floor in a blue light.

 

Kartha makes the executive decision that everyone needs to leave the water.

 

Phase 2: The Strangers

Phase is Open Until: January 20, 11:59PM PST
Phase 3 Opens at: January 15, 11:59 PM PST if 10 pieces are received.

Subzones: Oversea, Paschara Gardens, Zolk’s Crater


Once on board, Kartha explains the situation in her booming voice.

“WE’VE FOUND SOMETHING BIG, EVERYONE!” Kartha has climbed onto the roof of the captain’s cabin where everyone can see and hear her. “AT FIRST LIGHT, I’M GOING TO PLACE BUOYS LOADED WITH LIFE LINES AROUND THE PERIMETER OF THE MOUNTAIN. THAT WILL BE OUR NEW AREA OF FOCUS.” Her voice shakes the massive ship’s floor. How can one kadin be So Loud?


“Are we still looking for our supposed cousins?” someone near the front asks.


“AYE!” hollers Kartha. “WE SUSPECT THAT THEY MAY BE FULLY AQUA--”


A Sound interrupts her. A CLANG and heavy splashes. On the starboard side of the ship, a grappling hook has latched onto the railing, as thick as a Mountain Glider’s claw, and attached to it, hauling themself up the side of the ship, is… a ketucari?

Their head is broad, jaws heavy as a bullchomp’s. They drag themselves up with more dexterity than they should be capable of at their massive size--twice as large as a ryno--and hook a hind kill claw onto the railing when they crest it.

Silence covers the deck while they shake the water from their sopping feathers. Their neck and back is covered in heavy plate armor, and they’re covered in scars. Old, dark scars. They stand on the deck as if they own it, looking over the gathered crowd with a disdainful eye.

“...Even smaller than I thought yeh’d be.” they huff with a heavy, unplaceable accent. “Yeh. Up top with the Mech Leg. Yeh Lead this pack? Gotten Bigger since we first saw yehr ship. Keep nosin round like yeh’v business wit’ us. Makin theeries bout us. Ain’t much fondness between us, is there?”

“And You are…?” Kartha’s voice is far quieter than it should be. The stranger flicks their ears and looks over the crowd.

“Depends why yeh’r askin.” they answer. “What, exactly, is it that yeh all want?”


And that Is a question, isn’t it?


Kartha comes up with an answer quickly. “When my Guild was investigating these waters, we spotted creatures like you in the gloom, and found strange energy readings. We just wanted to-”

“Land dwellers. Those who work with the Captors? We took to the waves to avoid yehr ilk.” The stranger interrupts her, glares at the various humanoids and akadri on the ship. “...We only came up cause the fog’s gone, and already yeh’r sniffin round?”

“Things aren’t like that anymore!” Emdee protests from Kartha’s side. “The war has been over for centuries. We’re trying to reunite the ketucari that were scattered by it, and recollect lost history, and ensure that everyone is safe.”

The stranger gives the holographic figure a critical look. Huffs. “Prove yehrselves then. …We don’t trust so easy as to let yeh walk straight to our home without proof.” They turn, look back at the gathered crowd, and smirk. “Must say tho. They’re nice days when we do meet friendly faces. Been some centuries. We’ll give yeh a fair shake. Convince us.”

Without further ado, they take their heavy grappling hook and launch themself back into the sea.

Phase 2 End

The game of hide and seek comes to a sudden end when The Ambassador’s grappling hook snatches the railing again and the ship LURCHES with the weights of the Strangers climbing on. There are 7 of them, including the first you met. They scatter about on the ship, laughing amongst themselves, speaking loudly as they do.

It is quickly apparent that they’re making themselves at home.

“Well, Landdwellers” Durai says with a loud, uproarious laugh, “Yeh’v impressed us! SOME O’ yehr ilk are gonna be rottin’ in our prison, but mosta yeh seem ai’ght. Even yehr Captors seem ta be good fish! We’ll trust yeh.” their scarred face is split in a wide grin. “Me an’ mine here are gonna escort ye, o’course! We’s brought supplies an’ tools for yehs.”

“Is… everyone invited?” Kartha asks, stepping forward.

One of the other Strangers nods. “Course! In small groups, though. No more’n three with one’o us at a go.” she motions to the six of them. “S’all we got gear an’ eyes for, and should ‘elp yeh keep track ‘f yer crew, aye?” She stands and pulls something out of a pack on her back. Protective swim gear? “Yeh first, Cap. I’ll swim ye down myself, present ya to the Matriarch.”

There’s a long silence, Kartha watches the Strangers. “...What of those who haven’t returned from your waters?”
Silence rings.

“Criminals are punished here, Capt’n.” Durai’s voice drops low. “Theh’r meet’n the Matriarch as we speak. On less friendly terms. Yeh won’t get the same treatment as them, but theh’r stayin’.”

Subzones: Paschara Gardens, Paschara, Zolk’s Crater

 

When your turn finally comes to enter the water, you are handed protective gear. A rebreather, an oxygen tank. Those who are entirely confident in their ability to handle the dark waters argue, but the giant ketucari insist, and leave no room for argument.

It’s accept the equipment, or stay here on the surface.

 

It makes sense once you’re down there. The weight of the water crushes you, as you’re guided back down into the depths. Back down to the seit paddies and the giant, slow, lazy fish that swim about them. Old akadri technology tracks your movements as you swim along a path towards the mountain. It’s so dark down here that you’re certain the seit is glowing. The fish definitely are.

The mountain is illuminated, however. Floodlights burst to life as you approach, and a section of stone Moves, scraping low and deep against the ocean floor to reveal a brightly lit tunnel behind it.
Desperate for light, you swim ahead of your guide, into the light. Your companions and guide follow after you, and your guide moves their hands animatedly to get your attention before pointedly grabbing the handlebars on the floor. You follow suit and there is Noise from all around you. A motor that shakes you to your core as you hold on for dear life and the water around you is sucked away until you’re left panting and shaking from the sudden Cold and your feet are back on solid ground.

It’s a hiss and whirr, next, and the metal wall in front of you opens towards you to reveal what you can only describe as a security station. A cluster of these giant ketucari stand next to a window, wearing sashes pinned with shield-emblazoned broches around their shoulders. They give your group a curious look, greet your guide, and resume their chatter, speaking faster than you can process their accent.

Your guide hurries you along, through yet another bulwark. Here, the mountain Opens. You stand on a walkway around a deep crater. Everything below you is illuminated with lines of gleaming toresul lamps, and looking up… there’s more, leading up into the peak of the undersea mountains. The walkway is carved of stone and expanded with glowing technology leading to further, more central platforms kept  floating in stacks with the buzz of Talik. The walkways stretch for what must be a mile in any direction. “This way.” your guide says and steps onto a smaller platform framed at its corners with delicately carved stonework. Your group follows, and with a shudder and the hum of Greheli, the platform rises, a barrier forming around the stonework. An elevator, taking you up towards the peak. Up and up, until you stop and are ushered off onto a new walkway.

This isn’t a Tour, you realize. Your path is very direct. Looking around, you realize that there’s more of the sashed ketucari, guards (or something like them), flanking every possible route into the massive city proper. Some watch you warily, others smile and wave, as you’re herded deeper in. You pass between buildings where more curious eyes watch from the windows, as you’re led into what you can only describe as the open framework of a small castle. It’s festooned with colorful banners. The moment you step onto the grounds, the guards are armored, their faces hidden. Some are Armed, and they all wear banners of gold and red.

 

Eventually, you’re led into the intricate framework, to what is very definitely a throne. In it is a massive, tailless kadin, her fur a smokey orange, banded with brown and crimson. Her heavy head crowned with horns. She watches your approach with a grin.

Kartha already stands before her, visibly trying not to cower before another giant; Bald feathered, yellow, grey, and spotted under its ceremonial armor, the giant lifts its head at your guide’s call.

“Yeh took yer time.” it says. Your guide shrugs in reply and weaves off to the side after instructing you to sit, while they join the other returned guides.

“Be nice, Paleeka.” it’s the Matriarch who speaks, her accent more… antiquated than strange. “There’s quite a few of these strangers. Let our young’ins have a moment. As for those of yeh here… Make yerselves comfortable. If yeh have any needs, food, water, the like… ask Paleeka, and it’ll see to it yeh get a bowl. Course, if yeh misbehave, it’ll also ensure its guards take care of ye.”

 

You don’t have to wait terribly long before the remaining groups join you, and the castle, even as open as it is, is crowded. The Matriarch stands and looks over the crowd. “This all yer gathered, ‘cept the troublemakers who sought harm?”

“It… it is.” Kartha answers. “

“Excellent! Allow me to introduce myself! I’m Queen Corundum of Paschara! That one there? That’s my captain of the guard, Paleeka! Your friends have met it. The fools that went and caused problems. They’re fine, just servin’ time in the lower levels. As for you all, yer leader’s taught us ‘bout yeh.” Corundum shifts her weight atop her throne. “As has Durai. You’re investigating us.”

“We were also picking up strange energy--” someone starts to protest, but a sharp glare from the towering kadin silences them.

“That’s us. And a little problem we have.” she states, and hauls herself to her feet. “You call the land above our water ‘Zolk’. Well, when Igyera dragged it into the sky… they left a crater. And from that crater, we’re getting Beasts. We fight those beasts. If you wanna help, you’re welcome to. If not… there’s another task you can take on fer us. See… it ain’t just the Beasts. Paleeka?”

Paleeka  steps forward. Then through the gathered crowd, back to a solid wall on the intricate stone framework of the throne chamber. It points at a screen that takes up the majority of the wall. The screen depicts the ocean floor, bubbling with black sediments and flashes of lava. And more interestingly, glowing bits of old Akadri technology, scattered about the ocean floor. Remnants of flying machines, turbines, at least one tank just in the slow panning shot, are scattered about.

Paleeka jerks its head at the tech. “Yeh can investigate that. We use the old tech t’ power the city and expand. Yeh want us to trust yeh? Work like one of us.”

 

For a long moment, tension hangs heavy around you.

And then Corundum laughs, stomping a foot on the ground. “Yer all so serious! You should see yer faces! Ach, yeh’ll be good company. Come! Stay in Paschara for a while! Yeh wanna investigate? Get to know us and ours! Just know… if yeh cause any problems, it’s my dear ‘leeka you’ll be answering to.”

And on that cheery note, the guides usher you all out of the throne room.

Event End

There’s a sort of hush through Paschara tonight.

After a month of staying within the city, or at least visiting regularly, it’s almost starting to feel familiar. A month of fighting giants under the water, of learning about Paschara, of bonding and gathering technology. 

It’s… been a long trip.

The garochs have been amicable. Just as eager to learn of the world outside their underground, underwater cities. Many have either already left, heading out into the wider world, or are planning their exit. Some have agreed to leave with the Guild. Others will make their own way.

So too, are members of the expedition considering staying. Or returning home only to collect their belongings and relocate to Paschara. Others are so homesick that they’ve returned home already, finding some method or another. More still are tired, frustrated, and ready to be away from all of the water, in spite of any friends they’ve made among their garoch cousins.

 

One can only really call the Expedition a success.

And yet there’s a somberness to the departure. Sorrow that the time within the city is over.

And yet, there’s an excitement, too. The garochs chatter amongst themselves, playing telephone with the information they’ve received from the members of the expedition.

 

The members of the expedition stand in a city square, on the lowest level of the city. Loudspeakers fixed into various structures reverberate with Corundum’s voice, addressing her people.

“A year ago the noxious fog that has kept us safe in these waters cleared. A year ago, the poison that kept us trapped here, faded away. A day we’d awaited for centuries, even as we built our home. Our Sire granted us a chance to live as ourselves, not as slaves of the Captors and their Mechanical Nightmare they called Aterrin. We must remember to thank him, now that we are free to leave.”

There’s a lull, a moment of somber silence. “Months ago, we spotted the first strangers in our waters. I do not regret the lockdown I ordered then, but I know how it hurt you, my people. Our scouts assessed these strangers. We watched them. And they returned with more of them and theirs. We’ve dealt with theirs that broke our laws, an’ those that treated us kind, we invited in. They’ve been kind te us, these strangers. They’ve shared their stories with us. Us with them. And now, it is with greatest honor as your Queen, that I’d like teh announce the official end of our cowarin’ ‘neath these waters! Done is the war that our Sire sought teh hide us from!”

Corundum’s voice swells with power and authority.

“Today, Paschara declares itself an Ally with our cousins up on land! We send off our guests back whence they came and with them any who wish to join! Today, my people, my kinfolk, my jewels of the deep! Today, we stand free! To those who have left or plan teh leave! Go with my blessing and the love of Paschara! Yeh’ll always be welcome home should yeh return! To our guests… you have our deepest gratitude, and we are proud to call yeh Friend. Go forth, tell yer world of us. An’ know that yehr welcome in these waters any time.”



It’s time.

 

Horns blare, music swells all through the mountain. Guards stand, and the expedition is urged now to stand with them. Cheers erupt around the city.

A parade marches around the edges of the Paschara, joined by the garochs who seek to leave with the Guild. Streamers and banners unflurl from the ceilings and rails. Noise fills the air.


The melancholy is still there, lingering, but it’s painted over with bright lights, as the Expedition is led back out of the city and guided to their ships. Ships that have been joined by submarines shaped like whales, housing more garochs who seek to leave Paschara.

Finally, after months of adventure and curiosity, it’s time to return home. To normal life.

Until the next big adventure.

Check it out and read more about bounties on the dA page!

This bounty has an Eros slot raffle tied to it, we highly recommend taking a look!

Current Events

Matchmaker, Match Me A Make

Matchmaker 2024 is up! Depict a Ketucari or two (or three, or four, or... maybe not five, as they wouldn't all be rollable...) doing something romantic and post on in there! You'll need a ketucari with their BEs done - this does not need to be the ketucari you draw/write about for your entry, they just need to be able to spread some neat genes. Read more about the requirements in the post!

Queerplatonic and similar pairs are allowed! Aroace spectrum ketucari allowed!

Ocean Shadows: Phase Three Ending Soon

Ocean Shadows is currently in Phase Three! It's ending on February 15th at 11:59 PM PST, please make sure to get your entries in before then!

As a reminder, Garochs and the new genes are now available for semicustoms/tokens/etc, instead of the expected March, due to Ocean Shadows starting without them for a month.

Wanderers Cycling

As stated above, Wanderers Season 4 is ending soon. This is the last call for anything you wanted to do with these wanderers while they're still group-owned. A new set of Wanderers will be coming in Season 5! I'll give you a spoiler, it's mostly Garochs.

Pack Revamp Releasing Extremely Soon

We're moving packs to the site and revamping some features, such as making deity alliances much easier. We just need to get a bit more set up in pack inventories (which are almost done being ported to this site!) and then we'll be ready!

Singing Vale Raid Soon

The Singing Vale is now at 217/250 points towards a raid at time of writing this - we'll continue to alert you to a raid happening somewhat soon until it hits! Get your ketucari's skills and armor ready to take on Hianlian! Remember that Hianlian's attacks will be scaled to your ketucari's armor, so even low-armor ketucari can enter - armor does affect some things, however, such as amount healed!

Anarchie is planning an unofficial (player-run, not group-run) siege on the Singing Vale via the Territory Wars feature in two separate packs at the same time, to get the raid points up faster. Please feel free to ask eir about it if you're interested.

That's all for now! See you when packs are fixed up!

In February, the current Wanderers will be raffled off to new homes, and in March, new Wanderers with new genes will take their place! This is a heads up to get ready and read the information on the news page on how the import raffle works!

Singing Vale Raid Soon

The Singing Vale is now at 217/250 points towards a raid at time of writing this (and Anarchie is planning Something to get that number up a lot more after the event) - we'll continue to alert you to a raid happening somewhat soon until it hits! Get your ketucari's skills and armor ready to take on Hianlian! Remember that Hianlian's attacks will be scaled to your ketucari's armor, so even low-armor ketucari can enter - armor does affect some things, however, such as amount healed!

That's it! We'll see you in February!
