Pet's name: Äðwchrámhḿ

This boy is the main deity for a fictional species I've been developing, but I haven't worked out many of the details yet, so I'm afraid I can't tell you much more than that right now -- my general idea is that the society has a myth that there was once a terrible winter causing everything alive and beauty to perish and Äðwchrámhḿ did [something] to end it. In doing so, he gained magical powers and immortality, becoming the spirit of warmth, sunlight, fire, and ultimately life.

... As you can see, I have a lot still to figure out, lol. The species itself supposed to be a highly intelligent and civilized cross between a dinosaur and an eagle; you can read some of my brainstorming about them here if you like. Äðwchrámhḿ roughly means "one bearing or embodying everlasting fire/soul/life force" in their language.

Don't know why my friends
don't understand. They can't
deny that I know who I am. I
love the hunt and the chase,
the thrill of the race, and
doing it on my own. Nothing
wrong with being alone! I
thought my friends already
knew ... To myself I must be
true, be true, be true!

I would want a succulent UR pet, I think that would be so cute!

    In light of the event's theme, what is your favorite mythical creature?

I really like gryphons and phoenixes. Gryphons because they're pretty neat (plus being part lion is awesome), and phoenixes because I like the idea of them being reborn from their ashes after bursting into flames. ^^

For me, it'd have to be a sloth because they are so cute and slow lol

I'd probably pick a sea turtle, I think there could be some cool designs on their shells.

    Does being a part of CS STAFF take up alot of your time?

It can, depends on the time of year I think. For example when we have our events running (especially Dec. 18th) then things can get a bit wild and there's a lot more work to do. For the most part it doesn't take up too much time, though every now and then some reports are a bit crazy and you really need to sit down and read through everything.

Boneabii wrote:To anyone:

What did you do on your first day of CS?

Pretty sure I adopted as many pets as I could and wondered why they weren't growing immediately. I also checked out the free adoptions forum to see what other cool pets I could get, and was sad to learn you couldn't breed your own pets together. xD

I just got my custom recently, but this is Kali! <3
Her backstory is a bit long, but basically the name came from a character I created for a story I was writing years ago. I did finish the story but it was pretty awful since I was a young kid writing it at the time. I then got quite busy running an African-themed roleplay website where I used the name and made an African wild dog character. She still has hints of her character from the story such as the heart shape on her chest and the spotted legs.
Her actual character backstory is long and in the process of being written up, but if you're curious you can keep tabs on her toyhouse page here, for when I do eventually fill it all out. c:

I don't have one in particular, but I think the most interesting ones are when I go all the way back in my trade history to the very beginning, and cringe at all the awful trades I sent and accepted. xD

That’s really fascinating! Not to mention, Äðwchrámhḿ is gorgeous!

You said you were developing a species based on Äðwchrámhḿ. Does that mean you’re writing a story? Or are you going to create a website similar to Chicken Smoothie/Flight Rising? (Sorry if this question is too invasive.)

Not exactly either. What I'm doing is creating a conlang (constructed language -- think Klingon, Elvish, Esperanto, etc.). And this eagle/raptor cross thing was an idea I had been sitting on for a while that was originally going to be for just one OC, but then I decided to start developing it as the species that would be speaking the language because I needed a world and culture to go along with it. If that makes any kind of sense. The page I linked to for the species is actually part of the website I set up to organize my ideas for the language, so if you click around on the other pages there, you can check out what I've got so far.

I do have the thought to try writing some stories and/or poems about or as part of their culture once I have more to work with, but for now I'm just having fun and don't have anything concrete planned. c: I also often have trouble coming up with creative lore (hence the many gaps in Äðwchrámhḿ's backstory) and am mostly focused on the language, so I'm not sure how much I'll actually get around to developing for the species, but you never know. An adoptable site for them would be awesome, but I'm afraid my artistic and coding abilities aren't anywhere near the level they'd have to be at to pull something like that off. :'D

For the staff who have designed/created pets, are there any specific types of pets you particularly like designing(i.e special releases, Halloween/Christmas pets, pets for the summer events, etc.), and why?
I love the bunnies here omg

    any cs artist,
    how does the approval process work for your designs? i assume you don’t just get to upload them, and have you ever had designs denied that you really liked?

For any admin, but possibly someone with the power to make this desicion.


Have you considered making an admin who's job is to just make items rather than pets? I'd love more items!

Hello, I was just reading Tess's article about custom pets. And so far the only custom pet I have seen was Lilian Nightshade's so my "question" is: if you have a custom pet can you show it to us? Thank you soo much. You're all awesome.

He's my late bunny Mucki who crossed the rainbow bridge years ago.
Since we don't have a chinchilla Dutch coloured bunny on CS and I also don't have any kind of fursona, I wanted him as my custom. <3

I kinda miss his adorable first stages now and then, so I added his baby stage to my trade rules.
