so does judging competitions with tons of entries! do not
rush artists or a warning will be given out and may lead to
a ban. this is to keep our game stress-free for the artists.

cat ranks is not required. this game is about creativity.

also choose not to use any ranks at all, and that's fine.
your cats may live in any survivable land, just make sure
the food you select to hunt is suitable to that land.

receiving your founder, or else it will be readopted!

ii. create your clan’s thread and clan name. you may use this board to
do so or create your own website. there is no rule for what you may
use to archive! remember to link your archive on the archive thread.
iii. read the game mechanics page completely then go exploring! if
you have questions, staff is readily available to answer them. make
sure to check the FAQ page before pming a member of staff, though;
it's quicker for you and all the staff involved!

      EXPLORING / PATROLLING
      please link your clan archive and all cat’s adopt pages when posting on the explore thread using the explore code provided on the exploring page. you may change the coding but please keep all the information from the base coding able to be seen clearly. no more than six cats can be sent at a time! in all explore missions, you have a chance to: find food, find herbs,engage in battles, gain experience, find currency for starclan’s shop, train apprentices, find rare items and more! however, this is a survival game. cats may die when sent on patrols, receive injuries, and even run away. HUP stands for hunger percentage and HP stands for health percentage. these are two very important concepts! you can read about them if you scroll down further.

      x
      FOOD & WATER

      the most basic needs for survival are food and water, which is something your cats will have to explore to find. the more cats you have, the more food points you will need. if you are running dangerously low on FP, or food points, you may purchase them from starclan. (that’s me) you will need to feed your cats every time you explore, except for the first 3 explore posts you ever make. the penalty for not feeding your cats is +10% hunger. if it reaches 60 or above, a cat becomes unable to complete tasks like it normally can which can make surviving much harder. every cat starts off with 0% hunger, and can go 6 posts without needing fed. however, if you wait that long, you will need 2 food points per cat, as 1 FP = 10% HUP. as of right now, we have not implemented thirst levels into the game.

      NEW, UPDATED: 1FP = 10% HUP. members still need to feed their cats every post to prevent +10HUP gain.
      If your cat has 10% hunger, but you want to use a 2FP item (20%), you would list it as in the next post after using it to feed your cat:
      item | x1/2 | 2FP

        x
        scraps = 1 FP
        mouse = 2 FP
        vole = 2 FP
        shrew = 2 FP
        small fish= 2 FP
        x
        minnow = 3 FP
        squirrel = 3 FP
        frog = 3 FP
        rabbit = 4 FP
        bird = 4 FP
        x
        owl = 4 FP
        falcon = 4 FP
        hawk = 5 FP
        eagle = 5 FP
        vulture = 5 FP


      x
      HEALTH
      to survive, a cats health must be in prime condition. the only way to heal injuries (preventing further health loss after an encounter in explore) is to use herbs. herbs may be collected in explore or purchased from starclan. a cat may also gain health if their hunger is kept at 0%. every cat starts out with 100% health and should be kept above 40%. the only way to lose health is through encounters in explore. battles will occur if you choose to fight and sometimes even randomly during a patrol.

      x
      LEVELS
      gaining xp can only be done through exploring! you will gain +10 xp for every patrol sent out [i.e explore post posted ] and + certain xp amounts for battles won, herbs discovered, and adopts claimed. you may also gain xp from an apprentice learning a skill, a cat using herbs, or purchasing items from starclan! level experience is helpful when in combat or for the ability to make certain purchases from starclan. every time you level up, you get a reward!

      x
      level one: 100xp | Rewards: +1 FP
      level two: 200xp | Rewards: + 1 FP + 1 Herb
      level three: 300xp | Rewards: + 2 FP + 1 Herb
      level four: 400xp | Rewards: + 2 FP + 2 Herb
      level five: 500xp | Rewards: + 3 FP + 2 Herb
      level six: 650xp | Rewards: + 3 FP + 3 Herb
      level seven: 800xp | Rewards: + 4 FP + 3 Herb
      level eight: 950xp | Rewards: + 4 FP + 4 Herb
      level nine: 1000xp | Rewards: + 5 FP + 4 Herb
      level ten: 1150xp | Rewards: + 5 FP + 5 Herb + 1 Semi-Custom

      x
      GETTING NEW CATS
      to adopt a new cat, you must participate in competitions, buy a custom, or breed your existing cats. there is also a slim chance, extremely rare, to find a cat during explore. competitions are immersive, creative, and everyone has an equal chance! buying a custom can be done at starclan’s shop and breeding existing cats can be done in the nursery with starclan's approval! unlike other adopts, your level does not determine the amount of cats you can own.


      x
      AGING UP
      to age up a kitten resulted in a breeding or gained from an adopt, you must wait 3 weeks. then, you are responsible for bumping the kitten's adopt page (or breeding page) to remind the artist it's the day to age up. the cat will then become an apprentice. from that date, in 3 weeks they can be fully grown. they will have a date 6 weeks from the birth day and 3 weeks from the birth day posted so that you know exactly which day to bump the thread. you have the option to skip the apprentice stage and instead, simply wait the full 6 weeks for the adult version. there is also an item in starclan that you can use to make your cat forever young (apprentice lineart) or forever small (kitten lineart). once this item is applied, the cat can no longer be bred. you can read more about it in starclan's shop!

      HONORABLE MENTIONS & RUNNER UPS 
      sometimes an artist who has a difficult time choosing the winner of an adopt will award either an HM (honorable mention) or RU (runner up) to other players. you may use HMS to purchase customs. RU's are a second cat designed by the artist that will belong to you.

    Customs, Trading & Transfers

    Postby clarke, » Fri Aug 02, 2019 8:43 am

      CUSTOMS
      • Customs are available to be purchased. Artists charge differently for their customs & will include their price when they post that they are open for # of custom slots. You may also use HM's for customs! When using HMS, you must provide links to each HM.

      5 hms = 1 random custom (design chosen by artist)
      10 hms = 1 semi-custom (base color scheme chosen by player)
      20 hms - 1 full custom (everything chosen by player)

      Code: Select all
      [b]Custom form![/b]
      [u]Artist[/u]: Here
      [u]Type of Custom:[/u] Random, semi, or full
      [u]Payment type: [/u] Here (HM or Artist chosen price)


      ARTIST PRICES
      clarke,
      • 15c$ for a random custom
      • 20c$ for a semi custom
      • 25c$ for a full custom

      TRANSFERS
      • Transfers occur when players trade other players. You may only trade a cat after owning them for 30 days. This includes kits resulted from a breeding. You may not trade outside designs, currency, or otherwise for a member's cats. You may only trade cats for cats at this time. This may change based on community input. Please post the form below on the transfers and trades thread found [url=x]here[/url]. Both players involved in a transfer do not need to post unless you skip the proof part. Then, your proof will be your partner's post.

      Trade form:
      Code: Select all
      [b]I'm trading my cat![/b]
      [u]Cat being Traded[/u]: Here
      [u]Cat received from trade: [/u] Here
      [u]Proof of exchange: [/u] Show the other member confirming/have other member post form.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Postby clarke, » Fri Aug 02, 2019 8:49 am

    Image

    Q: Can my founder have edits?
    A: Your founder may have scars [NR] and/or 1 common edit. You may not request more than one, but sometimes artists will surprise you! Scars, because they are not rated, are able to be request along with 1 common edit.

    Q: What if I don't like my founder?
    A: You may opt to readopt your founder by telling the artist & compete in adopt competitions for a new founder. You may not request a new founder unless it is done in the form of buying a custom. Sometimes, depending on the artist, you can ask for slight changes.
    Ex. Long fur to short fur, vice versa.

    Q: How do I use explore?
    A: Reread the game mechanics - usually, your question will be answered. If it isn't, look at other explore example posts to see if you can come to a better understanding. If you still don't understand, please contact leksa, or myself!

    Q: Can I be apart of the staff?
    A: Yes! We don't only need artists. We need imaginative staff who can write, organize, and use creativity to come up with unique ideas to our species. To try out for any other position than an artist, simply pm myself or leksa, either on Chickensmoothie or Discord for further information reguarding the position. To become an artist, refer to artist search.

    Q: If I'm apart of staff but not an artist, can I still have a custom?
    A: Yes, if you are a member of the staff you may have a custom; refer to the staff rules.

    Q: If I allow someone to breed with my cat and they post it, does that count for my breeding slot too?
    A: Yes, if you intend to split the kits among each other.
