Hunting is back!


→ WHAT IS AN ARUCA?

Arucas are canine animals with incredibly heightened senses. Their senses are heightened by soft, thick membranes located on both their ears and on their foreheads. It's hypothesized that these membranes absorb sound and light than the ears and eyes of Aruca's normally - thus incredibly enhancing their sight and hearing. These adaptions help Aruca's hunt for food, shelter etc. Hunting is hypothesized to be a large part of their lives - kits are taught to hunt at a young age. After their first successful hunt, they are awarded with a decorative leaf tied to their back leg - this leaf represents the growth the kit has undertaken. Aruca's wear these leaves for life. Hunt leaves indicate different strengths for different Arucas.

→ WHAT'S NEW?

- Membrane shape has changed on the ears - any previous Arucas with circle membranes on the ears will now be considered to have the "rare" membrane trait, however, this will not be passed through birth of kits UNLESS an edit item is applied after the kit has been made. This also applies to the tail alterations, eucalyptus leaves, as well as pupil shape changes.
- The hunting game has been altered - Aruca leaves now represent different hunting strengths.
- Discord server!
- FAQ

→ LEAF BOOSTS

The segmented leaf represents stamina. Your Aruca has perfect stamina, granting you 5 more rolls in the hunting game.
The rounded leaf represents tactics. Your Aruca has a 5% increase of finding food whilst hunting in any area.
The maple leaf represent foresight. You can either choose 3 more rolls in the hunting game, or a 3% higher chance at finding food whilst hunting in any area.
Aruca's with custom leaves may either pick one of these boosts, or create a new one, however, this MUST be reasonable and MUST be approved. You cannot change your boost after you have chosen it, and it must be documented by you.

Kits will need to earn a leaf. Please check out the hunting game for more information.

FAQ

Postby Kaizoku » Wed Nov 06, 2019 11:48 pm

→ FAQ

Please check here before asking questions! If something isn't clear, or you have another question, feel free to ask them here, on our Discord, or directly to our staff.

→ HOW DO I GET ONE?

Check our new adoptions regularly! Underneath every Aruca, there will be contest instructions given by the artist. Follow these, fill out the appropriate form, and with a bit of luck, an Aru might be yours!

→ CAN I BECOME STAFF?

Check the post above this to see if we have any staff applications open! We will only hire when we need an extra helping hand; applications will always be announced on our main thread.

→ WHO DO I CONTACT ABOUT BANKING ISSUES?

Please contact either myself, kh.aotic or Bloth Hoondr.

→ CAN I BREED MY ARUCAS?

At this current point in time, we have no nursery. With previous iterations of our lines, we did have a nursery available, however, since changing lines, the nursery is still being figured out. Any previously purchased nursery items will be valid when/if we get a nursery back up and running. Nursery items are still available from the hunting game store.

Quick announcement regarding leaves:
In a previous version of Arucas (v.2 Arus only), we had a "eucalyptus" leaf shape as standard shape. This was a long, straight leaf and is not a part of our current line set. This leaf shape will be treated the exact same as the old circle ear membranes, and will now count as an 'uncommon' leaf shape. During this version also, the 'maple' leaf shape was an uncommon edit; it is now a standard leaf shape and will count as a standard trait rather than an uncommon one. Maple leaves will pass normally through breeding.

Like the old membrane shape, the eucalyptus shape will not pass in a breeding automatically. If you want this trait on you kit, you must wait until they have been created, and use an appropriate edit item on them; they will then be treated as a custom leaf shape and you will need to choose a trait for hunting the same way as other custom leaves. The same will now apply if you want the old-shape membranes; an edit item must be used.

Thank you!
