Raid Specifics and Reminders

Firstly, keep in mind this raid, like all raids, will last a maximum of 1 month! You are free to enter ketucari at any point in the raid. There is no signup deadline!

Regardless of Kalet's health, the raid will last for at least two weeks.

Since the raid boss has a set health this go around, there is a possibility that admins will adjust her health as needed. We will notify the group if so.

 
 

Boss Details

 

Kalet

 

The boss we will be battling is the majestic Kalet! You can read more about her on her Pantheon page. Kalet's Attacks If you need some inspiration, you may depict Kalet using one of her special attacks against your ketucari!

What a Headache: Kalet disorients you with a swift smack to the head. Which way is up again?! Your dexterity has been lowered by half for the next attack!

Karma's Got Claws: Karma is usually about balance, but this time Kalet doesn’t care how good you are, your constant attacks have left her no choice but to show just what her claws can do!

Here Kitty Kitty: Kalet has had enough of your taunting, she pounces upon you with all her strength. That's gonna leave a mark!

2022 Pride Month

Posted 3 weeks ago :: Last edited 3 weeks ago by IIIXKitsuneXIII
HELLO everybody! Welcome to our new annual event!
It's a small one but one that we hope everyone will enjoy. We are very much open to feedback, but wanted to start with something small and easy, especially since this year it happens to overlap with the Illahaesa Raid!
 
So this event is Very Simple:
Every player, for the month of June, gets a special additional breeding.
What makes this breeding special, aside from getting a 4th breeding this month?
Well the short version is this: It has a free built in Sun Disk and/or Lunar Amulet and Guard (unless you opt out of the guard).
ALSO, much like Matchmaker, it doesn't count against your ketucari's used slots!
 
This bonus slot can be used in splits (only counts toward's the Host's bonus slot). All you need to do to claim this bonus slot, is state in your breeding post that it is your Free Pride Month Bonus Slot.
 
In addition to this small event, please be sure to check out this month's Bounty on the front page of the group!

The Wanderer Slot Raffle Season 3

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 3 weeks ago by Noirmori

The Wanderers

[DA Journal Version]

    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.


Going forward, we will be rejecting entries that we feel cross the line into disrespecting the character.
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" 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

 
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 Manghild and Liatris, you may choose which slot you would prefer to get, instead of receiving Liatris by default.

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

Bullet; White Comment your entry here:

 


 

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 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.

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 Haze entry and win Free, for example, but if you only entered for Haze you get priority on Haze).

Bullet; White Comment your entry here: >CURRENTLY CLOSED<

Current Wanderers are due to be adopted out on March 1st, 2023

What a Load of Shift 2022

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

Ketu Pantheon - Darhaskos by Umbrafen

WHAT A LOAD OF SHIFT 2022! 

 
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 4-30-22

To view the DA version of this journal click here!

 This event is reoccurring, and will happen again in April 2023.


WINNERS:

Will be announced here at the end of the event! 


Hibridi King Gunagi by Umbrafen




 
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 times 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.
Prompts do not have to be "new" (as in posted after the event starts) however they cannot have been sumitted for previous years, use 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!)
Bullet; White Human
Bullet; White Akadri
Bullet; White Jordskar
Bullet; White Hibridi
Bullet; White Heldyr
Bullet; White Lucedarian
(Information about these races can be found at the bottom of THIS page)
NEW: As of 2021, you may instead transform your ketucari into one of Verukaelo's fauna (or any earth animal)!

Bullet; White You may make a reference, a simple standing sketch, a full illustration, or anything in between! All are acceptable.
Bullet; White Must be full body. 70% of the body must be visible. (For those of you who hate drawing hands!)
Bullet; White Must be colored. Does not have to have shading.
Bullet; White While humanoid shift forms don't need to resemble the ketucari, please remember that animal forms Do.
Bullet; White Yes, you are allowed to include an outfit! Darhaskos isn't that cruel.
Bullet; White Nudity allowed. Please censor The Bits and apply the correct DA filter. Please be mature about this and do not include anything that would be considered erotic, thank you.

Submit your entries HERE

Bullet; White 300 words minimum per Ketucari.
Bullet; White Must have a decent description of what the Ketucari looks like in their new form at some point in the literature piece.

Submit your entries HERE 

 RULES

Bullet; White You may transform up to (5) of your own Ketucari. This limit still applies if somebody else designs your ketucari's new forms for you.
Bullet; White 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.
Bullet; White 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

Bullet; White 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!
Bullet; White 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! The more entries you do, the more tickets you receive. Five tickets max. Raffle tickets go to the owner of the ketucari being transformed.
Bullet; White Lastly, we will be raffling off an import to one lucky grand prize winner!

Raid of Antikutan 2022

Ketu Guro Banner Txt
 

Antikutan’s resources have been depleted, and Guro has risen to defend the land! Does your ketucari have what it takes to help bring down the Guardian of Antikutan? Be sure to read up on Raids to see how to participate!

Click here to see the DA version of this journal 
 

Current Raid status!

-Guro has been defeated! As a reminder, everyone has until Midnight tonight (March 10/2022) PST to submit raid entries! 

-Sensing he's near the end, Guro gets a second wind and redoubles his attack efforts!

-Strategic Planning has been used and may not activate again this raid- Everyone's next attacks will deal double damage

 

Guro's Health: 0 / 20,000
 
Defeated
 

Support Tier: Tier 3

Pieces until next support tier: 15/15

 

RAID SPECIFICS AND REMINDERS

With this being the first raid we've done in a while-- and our first trial of our final iteration of raids-- we will have a few unique protocols in place to keep the fun going, as well as a few general reminders! Firstly, keep in mind this raid, like all raids, will last a maximum of 1 month! You are free to enter ketucari at any point in the raid. There is no signup deadline! Regardless of Guro’s health, the raid will last for at least one week. Since the raid boss has a set health this go around, there is a possibility that admins will adjust their health as needed. We will notify the group if so.

We are also launching starter leasing for raids!

 

REQUIREMENTS FOR LEASING STARTERS:

-Anyone with 3 or less "battle ready" ketucari may lease 1-2 starters to use in the raid.

- "Battle ready" means the ketucari has at least one battle skill, so if you have 4 uploaded ketucari but only two have battle skills, you will still qualify.

- To lease a starter you simply need to make a colored headshot or bust of the starter you wish to lease, or write 100+ words about them learning about the raid, wanting to help, etc, and link that piece when signing up for the raid. They will then join your team for the duration of the raid!

-When signing up for the raid please include a loadout of 4 skills for the starter you're using. These 4 skills must all be of the same attunement and should match the attunement listed on the starter's import.

-The skills chosen can be any 4 skills in the starter's attunement and these are the four skills the starter will be able to use in battle.

-Alternatively, a starter may be used as a medic instead of a fighter and in that case you will just list cauterize as their skill loadout.

-When submitting for prizes at the end of the raid starters will count as elder but will not earn titles.

-Starters are first come first serve and the same starter cannot be used by multiple people.

BOSS DETAILS

Image

The boss we will be battling is the marvellous Guro! You can read more about him on his Pantheon page.

 

Guro, like all of Velukaelo's deities can shift size at will! They could be as big as a mountain, or as small as your ketucari! 50% of their form must be visible (This can be mostly tentacles if you like!) Guro’ Attacks If you need some inspiration, you may depict Guro using one of their special attacks against your ketucari! Guro is a Greheli user and often uses their magic to adjust the area around them.

 

Sandstorm - ‘Guro kicks up a massive sandstorm, blinding your ketucari. Their dexterity is lowered for the next 2 turns’ This *CAN* stack!

Constrict - Guro snatches your ketucari up in one tentacle. They miss their turn and take damage!

'Devour' - Guro's stomach opens up and tentacles surround you, trying to pull you in. Getting out will be tricky!

  • Art entries, at minimum, should be loose, uncolored sketches with the hint of a background resembling the respective zone. They do not require shading.

  • What your ketucari is doing is up to you! Are they collecting wood or herbs to assist the raid? Using magic to allow enhance or protect the fighters? Keep in mind however, that your ketucari should not be depicted battling the boss or healing the fighters (as that falls under fighter/medic participation), and it should be clear that your ketucari is supporting the raid. In other words, no showing off your magic in an empty field!

  • There is a maximum of 4 ketucari per piece. Collaborations are allowed.

To submit a piece, please use the Raid- Support prompt on the ketucari website for each ketucari in the piece. A seperate submission needs to be made for each ketucari in the piece and they will each need a link to both their DA import and ketucari.com import included.

EVENT STATUS

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

Thank you everyone for a wonderful February! We look forward to the uncoming year with all the new fresh faces.

We hope you all had fun in Zolkanis! Zolkanis itself is NOW OPEN TO ACTIVITIES! We hope you enjoy it!
Zone Objectives are now open for Zolkanis, as well, with a shiny new BG available as soon as I figure out where the other admins put it!

Matchmaker was a hit as always!

Season 3 of The Wanderer Slot Raffle has begun! The previous Wanderers have been handed out to their new owners!

With Season 3 of the Wanderers, we are introducing Three new feather types!
Please say hello to Lucerne, Nicobar, and Jacobin!
PSDs should be available later in March or by late April, unfortunately due to various irl circumstances Rynos have not yet been given the new feathers and we would prefer not to prematurely release them on the other builds.

 

Due to some last minute delays, the Antikutan Raid will be delayed by a day or two while we get the journal set up.

 

Important QOL updates for everyone:
Mixed roll types are now permitted. Please see the adventuring guide for more information.

A Horn Pack specifically for Danuocs is in the works, courtessy of the tireless efforts by pawstepsinthesnow working to redraw the horns so they actually fit on the Danuoc base. This will be released as soon as it is completed.

 

We would also like to remind players both new and old of some of our less used features such as:
-Elemental Blessings at the Tarn
-Packs!
-Zone and Player Objectives
-Titles!

 

February Spotlight

Posted 4 months ago :: Last edited 4 months ago by IIIXKitsuneXIII

Across the land of Velukaelo, celebrities are common. Ketucari and two-leggers alike slip in and out of the spotlight as easily as breathing. 15 minutes of fame, a lifetime of satisfaction. One ketucari however, has made it clear that she is searching for the next big thing.

 

Will it be you?


How Spotlights work:

 

Spotlights are reserved for artists and writers who show improvement and effort in their works. Every month or so, admins will scour the art of Ketucari users for Tashtai, searching for an artist or art that catches their attention for improvement. Tashtai will then pick one out if the set and show it off for everyone to see, featuring several of their works!

We will also feature several Quality Roll pieces as well! These will be one piece per artist, but all are incredibly impressive.

Remember that this is judged against your own gallery and skill level. If you're a beginner, you will not be passed over for a quality roll because your art isn't of the same caliber as someone who has been drawing for 10+ years. This would be unfair and that is not our goal! However, we do require that the effort be noticeable as we do not want players abusing this feature. We will be considering things such as anatomy, background quality, and posing for art, and story flow and creativity for literature. We will be lenient with grammar and spelling for those for whom English is not their first language, so don't fret if that's the case!

Artworks featured in Spotlights will be awarded with a Quality Roll.

 

Quality Rolls

  Quality Rolls on Lorekeeper are somewhat different than their previous incarnations! All Quality Rolls - Spotlights and otherwise - will be granted a chest called Tashtai's Crate, stocked with many various goods from across Velukaelo!

Keep in mind, however, that as it takes time for players to improve, quality rolls are rare events and will typically be awarded once every six months, per artist at max.
 

Have a suggestion for a spotlight? Note MAtriarchs-Haunt with the player, a few of their pieces, and why you think they should be featured!


Current Spotlight

Tashtai seems to have found someone to her liking and she would like to share them with you! Tashtai, would you like to take the floor?

“Thank you. And thank all of you for coming to this spotlight gallery today. I believe I have found this week’s new celebrity. They have put a lot of effort into improving themselves and I’d like to give them a moment of fame.” The buff ketucari steps back and pulls a cord, lifting the curtains from a stunning work.

"@PencilPavlova (also known as Unarla) has been consistently improving and creating beautiful work for a long while - you've doubtlessly seen their work throughout the group's history, always immediately recognizeable by their distinctive and unique character designs. Watching them work out new characters and play with shapes and color is always a treat! They also have excellent writing abilities, particularly in comics!

In their work we see improvement/interest in many areas:

Individualization: One of the best traits in @PencilPavlova's works is how unique everything is. Their character designs are unique, certainly, but the little details that Pav puts into their backgrounds, the grasses in the sand in Sunye, the little flowers in the Illahaesa Mountains, it's clear that Pav puts a lot of thought and attention into how to build a scene and make it more than just a generic setting.

Color and lighting: Two words: Unified palettes. @PencilPavlova does such gorgeous work with palettes and making a scene cohesive that even the occasional non-story piece from Pav is such a treat to look at with everything looking like it belongs in the same piece.  As exemplified in the comic page above, Pav is also excellent at using rim-lighting .

Character and Emotion: @PencilPavlova has made multiple admins cry with the Furcifer and Daramos plot. We grew to love these characters and then Pav made them cry and then we cried with them and it was wonderful and I really don't have better words for this because I don't wish to spoil their stories more than this comic page already has. Pav is so good at character writing and making us care about these characters and portraying the emotion the character is feeling through either their expression or the scenery and lighting.

I have  decorated the gallery with a few others works done by @PencilPavlova. Make sure to check out their gallery as well! I am sure you will find a favorite just like I have!"

 

Current Quality Roll Feature

The rest of the gallery features various artists' pieces on display, including:

Bottled Lightning, by ZooofAlexandria
The dramatic lighting in his piece and the dynamic poses are just a delight to look at.

Lending a Claw by CeriMond / Kushiel
The emotion in this piece  and all of the little details on Nanai show how much Kush has improved in the last year. Nanai looks so peaceful.

Sea Bird Hunt by Wormbie
So much motion, so much detail, the textures, the colors, the bright sun! It feels like something out of a storybook.

Harvest by @dragonoxide
The colors and details, particularly the details in the shading and on the groundstreak, and in Raptor's frill, are just lovely, and despite standing still the pose is powerful and dynamic.

 

We've realized the group just doesn't have quite enough activity for monthly Spotlights, so we will be striving for a 2-3 month model, based on activity levels and admin availability to write up the posts!
That said, we hope to see you all in April with our next spotlight! Thank you everyone for making this group a joy to be in!
