Metal Breeding Coin (MBC) / Pendant (MBP)
This coin will allow you to breed two pets that have the exact same lineart, with 5% wiggle room. It mixes the parents' colors and markings, and normally produces 2 babies with the same base.

Add-Ons
Overview


Metal Breeding Coins are one of the more widely available coin options, being sold in the BP shop year-round. They produce babies on the same base as their parents. The Metal Breeding Pendant is a special rare variation that does the same job, but regenerates once a month!



Genus Restrictions


This coin can be used to breed any Common, Uncommon, Raw, Trinket, Token, or Prehistoric genera, as well as Silver Species (pets with the genus "Pet") and the following Rares: Serrul, Flux, Quil, Selkie, Ornaga, Cirrus, Vespa, Koaf, Spino, and Scarl.

It cannot be used for other Rares, Exotics, Hybrids, or Rare Hybrids. On very rare occasions, genera that are normally not allowed may become available for a limited time event. As such, if you see a pet from such a genus produced by an MBC, it is certainly from such an event.



PSD and Edit Requirements


PSDs are not strictly required, but are highly recommended both to be easier for the artist and to get back the best quality offspring.

The pets bred must have identical lines, both in terms of base and edits if edited. There is about 5% wiggle room on what is considered "identical". For example, an eye glow, a small hair accessory, or a minor expression difference would usually be within 5%, although there are many other examples. Keep in mind that relative proportions of the genus can make a big difference, as well. A bit of added ear fluff will likely be a bigger edit on something like a Melo than on a Unus, for instance.

Please use this thread if you need to check if your pair has a small enough edit difference to be MBC bred.



Pairing Examples


These pets would be MBC compatible, as they are identical lines!

X



These would be compatible, too! The edit on the butt is very small, within the allowed wiggle room.

X



These pets would NOT be compatible, however, as they are too edited from each other.
For a pair like this, you might look into the Lesser Breeding Coin or Painted Lesser Breeding Coin.

X



To check for certain if a slightly-edited pair is MBC-compatible, you can have them checked in this forum thread!
Under normal circumstances, MBCs produce 2 babies. Some add-ons produce more or less; see the Add-Ons tab. Rare events which allow unusual genera (ex: Teos) might also produce only 1 baby, but this is case-by-case like all events.

The parents' colors and markings will be mixed. Some add-ons can change the colors used. Under normal circumstances, no new markings will be created; for a coin with similar regulations that creates new colors and markings, see Painted Metal Breeding Coin (PMBC). When submitting Predicts, however, the Painted Bucket add-on can be used to treat an MBC like a PMBC.

For instance, if one parent is blue/pink, and the other is brown/yellow, the babies may be primarily blue/brown and pink/yellow, or blue/yellow and brown/pink. They may have more colors than the parents (ex: brown with blue and pink accents on one, blue and yellow with pink and brown accents on the other). Colors may also mix in a painterly sense, such as blue and yellow making some green on the baby, or pink and yellow making a soft orange.

Colors and markings should be divided fairly evenly between the babies. For instance, if one parent is mostly red, and the other is mostly green, the babies should not both be mostly red. If one parent has spots and the other has stripes, the babies should not both be solely spotted. However, both could have a mix of spots and stripes so long as they take from different sections (ex: one has a spotted face and legs and a striped body, while the other has the inverse). Some sharing is permissable, particularly when both parents had many markings and one or two in common stands out less, or in pairings without PSDs, but ideally babies should be well-balanced.

Be aware that MBC breeding pets with minimal or no markings will result in babies that may not look as distinct from the parents as ones with noticeable markings to mix. Using pets with very different colors or using a color add-on can help pairs with minimal or no markings produce more distinct babies.

Babies must use only the shading present on the parents. Only extremely minor touch-ups, such as duplicating faint shading/light layers to show up better against a darker base color or fixing a minor bleeding error, are permissible otherwise.

If parents have black outlines, babies will also have black or very dark outlines.
Here are some examples of pets bred with an MBC and what the offspring looked like.

Baby Number Add-Ons

Fertility Potion Fertility Potion / Golden Basket Charm Golden Basket Charm
These add-ons are the same in effect. The only difference is the way in which they were originally released. Either will add 1 baby to your MBC breeding, for 3 total, or 4 if also Married (see below). You cannot use both a Fertility Potion and a Golden Basket Charm.

Engagement Ring Engagement Ring
When two pets are Married, they can only breed with each other or via the Delicious Eggnog item, but some types of breeding, including Metal, will produce 1 additional baby. This makes for 3 total, or 4 if combined with one of the add-ons above.

Lesser Fertility Potion Lesser Fertility Potion
This add-on makes your MBC breeding produce only 1 baby instead of 2. This may be desirable if, for instance, you want to cram most or all of both parents' markings onto one baby, or perhaps for character purposes.
Color Add-Ons

Many MBC add-ons affect color palettes. For examples of these add-ons in use, see the Breeding Add-On Examples article.

Cool Blue Pet Carrier Cool Blue Pet Carrier
This add-on will replace the colors with cool colors-- blues, greens, and purples-- and potentially black/white/gray. Very small accents of warmer colors are rare but acceptable.

Easter Dye Pack Easter Dye Pack
This add-on will replace the colors with pastels of any color. Very small accents of darker colors are rare but acceptable.

Fireball Fireball
This add-on will replace the colors with warm colors-- reds, oranges, yellows, and browns-- and potentially black/white/gray. Very small accents of cooler colors are rare but acceptable.

Lovely Ink Lovely Ink
This add-on will replace the colors with Valentine's-inspired colors, especially (but not strictly limited to) red, pink, purple, gold, black, and white. There is a bit more artist's discretion on this than other palette-specific color add-ons.

Neutral Nuggets Neutral Nuggets
This add-on will replace the colors with neutral/"natural" colors-- black, white, grays, and browns. Very small accents of other colors are somewhat rare but acceptable. Very desaturated colors, like a soft gray-blue or light olive green, are more likely to pass with a little heavier use than a brighter color, but should still not be main colors on the baby unless they are desaturated enough to pass for a slightly-tinted gray.

Artist's Palette Artist's Palette
This add-on will replace the colors with the artist's choice of a palette. Light requests (ex: "I prefer bright colors!" or "no orange please") are acceptable, though artists are allowed to ignore them. The more vague the request, the more likely the artist won't mind accommodating.

Painted Vial Painted Vial
This add-on will replace the colors with the user's choice of a palette. Be sure to include a desired palette in your notes. If you don't, the artist will PM you for one (or have the coin's admin or helper PM you if they wish to stay anonymous). If you don't respond within 48 hours, the artist will choose a palette.

Paint Bucket Paint Bucket
This add-on will allow your Metal Breeding Coin to function like a Painted Metal Breeding Coin, creating new markings and colors of the user's choice. However, it is only allowed to be submitted with Predicts.

Assignment Add-Ons

Artist Ticket Artist Ticket
This add-on allows you to choose which artist you want your breeding to be assigned to, and provides a $10 tip to that artist. You can PM a coin's manager for a list of currently active artists. (Please bear in mind that with longer queues, an artist may resign before your breeding is assigned.)

Speedy Breeding Ticket Speedy Breeding Ticket
This add-on moves your breeding to the front of the queue. It will not be assigned until the next time an artist takes a list, however, so a fairly small wait should still be expected. In the rare event that there are many Speedy Breeding Tickets and/or Crystal Egg Tickets in queue for the same coin, those submitted first will be assigned first, making it possible if unlikely that an assigning will be done without getting to your breeding. It is recommended to save this add-on for coins with longer queues.

Crystal Egg Ticket Crystal Egg Ticket
This add-on does the jobs of the Artist Ticket and Speedy Breeding Ticket at the same time!


Paintbrushes

Prior to the advent of the Commission Panel and a direct tipping option when hatching babies, Aywas used Paintbrushes as an indirect USD Payment option for artists. They are currently no longer available to purchase, but Paintbrushes which still exist on site can be added to breedings to tip the artist for the following amounts.

Metal Paintbrushes Metal Paintbrushes: $4.50 USD Bronze PaintbrushesBronze Paintbrushes: $6.00 USD
Blue PaintbrushesBlue Paintbrushes: $7.50 USD Gold Paintbrushes Gold Paintbrushes: $15.00 USD
Silver Paintbrushes Silver Paintbrushes: $22.50 USD


Lesser Breeding Coin (LBC) / Pendant (LBP)
/ Half a Lesser Breeding Coin (HLBC) / Holiday Mistletoe
This coin will allow you to breed two pets that have the same base lineart, with or without different edits. It mixes the parents' colors, markings, and edits, keeping the same base. It normally produces 1-2 babies.
Submission Rules
Baby Rules
Baby Examples
Add-Ons
Overview


Lesser Breeding Coins are one of the more widely available coin options, available in the GP shop year-round. They produce babies on the same base as their parents, but with the potential for different edit combinations. The Lesser Breeding Pendant is a special rare variation that does the same job, but regenerates once every three months! The Half Coin version also does the same job for cheaper, but is Predict-only and produces only one baby regardless of parents. Holiday Mistletoe is another variation given out in the past for Aymas; it only works 50% of the time.



Genus and Base Restrictions


This coin can be used to breed pets of any genus except the following: Xaoc, Neura, Violinn, Nimbus, and Boreas.

Pets must have the same base lineart, but may be edited. Old x New, New x Alt, or Old x Alt pairs can be submitted with Predicts, but must have predictions made. Shopkeepers and other event lines can be LBC bred to others on the same lines, but cannot be LBC bred to different lines even with Predicts.

Be careful to watch for bases with similar poses, like New vs Old Melo (the feet are often a quick giveaway) or default vs Sitting Alt Orimi (the back leg tends to be a quick tell). These pets look very similar at a glance, but the details are very different in ways that can make edits not line up right at all. On rare occasions, pairs on similar-but-different lines may slip through the queue without notice, and breed well enough that even the artist never noticed. If this happens, however, it should be counted as a lucky mistake, and not expected of other pairings in the future.





PSD and Edit Requirements


PSDs are not strictly required for most pairs, but are highly recommended both to be easier for the artist and to get back the best quality offspring.

However, in cases where parents are more than 75% different from each other, workable PSDs are required for each parent that is over 30% total. That is, for two very different Gold pets, or a Silver bred with a Blue, etc, both require PSDs. For a Gold pet bred with a Metal or Bronze, only the Gold pet strictly requires a PSD.

"Workable", in the context of LBC, is defined as having (a) at least two separate edits in addition to the base, and (b) separate line, shading, and base layers. Pets with significant markings should also have at least one marking separate from the base layer. Without these, highly edited pets are extremely difficult to work with and often require the artist to redraw a lot of things from scratch. While filling in small areas is a part of LBC artist duties, redrawing to that extent is not. As such, highly edited pets without PSD or with very merged, unworkable PSDs require user predicts to breed.



Rules for Silver-Edited Site Genera


Pets that are over 75% edited in general require a few things to be LBC compatible. First, they always require workable PSDs. And second, they must still resemble their base in terms of body shape and position. Remember, full body replacement adds a tax of +30% to edit modifiers (discussed here), so pets that only have part of a tail left are almost certainly Silver. (Not to be confused with "Silvers" in the sense of the "Pet" Genus.)

An extremely edited accessorized/fluffy Bumble that is still clearly a Bumble, with the same overall body shape, is typically still quite easy to breed to other Bumbles so long as it has a decent PSD.



Fancy Bumbles, but still Bumbles!


By contrast, an extremely edited "Teo" that has become a snake or a large standing wolf, with only a tiny bit of the tail curve or fluff even vaguely resembling the base, is no longer a Teo and can often be extremely difficult to breed. These pets can be LBC bred only with Predicts, or to pets on the same new body edit.



"Teos" - Easily bred to each other, but not most Teos.


As of September, 2019, there is no longer a difference between LBC breeding Gen 1 vs Gen 2+ Silver-edited pets. So long as the above criteria are met, they're fine.

As artists will not manually check every parent, it is your duty as the user to Crystal Check pets that may be borderline; and it is recommended to let your artist know, for instance, "this pet is 71% edited". Note that borderline-over cases may sometimes slip through unnoticed, and that artists may at their own discretion decide they can handle a pair and go ahead with it as an act of generosity. They are not required to, however. Like the similar bases issue above, this should be counted as a stroke of luck and not expected of artists in the future. Please do not complain about very minor situational inconsistencies or abuse this minor wiggle room, or the entire process will have to be made much harder on everyone.





Pairing Examples


Note that in the examples below, several Site Pets are used. Users may not always know if Site Pets have PSDs, so when it talks about requiring or recommending a PSD, it should be taken as an example for a pet of that general edit range.



This pair would be LBC compatible! PSDs recommended but not required.

X



This one would be, too! PSDs recommended but not required.

X



This pair would require Predicts, as it uses two different poses.

X



This pair is very different from each other, and each is over 30% edited, so both would require PSDs to be site bred.

X



In this pair, the first parent is Silver, but is still clearly a Bumble. As such, it is still LBC breedable, but does require a PSD. The other parent is only barely Bronze with just a small glow edit, so its PSD would still be optional (but recommended).

X



Both of these "Teos" are so edited as to no longer retain the body shape or position of a Teo at all, and do not share their new body edit. As such, they would require predicts. Each of these pets would also require predicts for any partner that doesn't share the bulk of their edits.

X

Basic


Under normal circumstances, LBCs produce 2 babies for Common, Uncommon, Raw, Trinket, Token, or Prehistoric genera, as well as Silver Species (pets with the genus "Pet") and the following Rares: Serrul, Flux, Quil, Selkie, Ornaga, Cirrus, Vespa, Koaf, Spino, and Scarl. Other Rares including Exotics produce 1 baby. Hybrids are rolled to produce either 1 or 2 babies. Some add-ons can produce more or less babies; see the Add-Ons tab. (HLBCs produce 1 baby.)



Colors and Markings


The parents' colors and markings will be mixed. Some add-ons can change the colors used, and the Blood Filtering Kit add-on allows grandparent edits and colors to be used. Under normal circumstances, no new edits or markings will be created (although markings present on the parent may sometimes be re-created to fit an edit). For a similar coin that creates new colors and markings, see Painted Lesser Breeding Coin (PLBC). When submitting Predicts, however, the Painted Bucket add-on can be used to treat an LBC like a PLBC.

For instance, if one parent is blue/pink, and the other is brown/yellow, the babies may be primarily blue/brown and pink/yellow, or blue/yellow and brown/pink. They may have more colors than the parents (ex: brown with blue and pink accents on one, blue and yellow with pink and brown accents on the other). Colors may also mix in a painterly sense, such as blue and yellow making some green on the baby, or pink and yellow making a soft orange.

Colors and markings should be divided fairly evenly between the babies. For instance, if one parent is mostly red, and the other is mostly green, the babies should not both be mostly red. If one parent has spots and the other has stripes, the babies should not both be solely spotted. However, both could have a mix of spots and stripes so long as they take from different sections (ex: one has a spotted face and legs and a striped body, while the other has the inverse). Some sharing is permissable, particularly when both parents had many markings and one or two in common stands out less, or in pairings without PSDs, but ideally babies should be well-balanced.

Large sections of the pet should not be left exactly the same color as the parent, aside from perhaps the very base color. Even edits that naturally lend to a certain color-- such as water being blue, or leaves being green-- should be changed at least a little. Make the color a little lighter or darker, warmer or cooler, more or less saturated: whatever works with the parent colors to make it look a little bit different. If something is colored with a gradient, reversing the gradient direction can also help keep a desired effect while being different.

Markings can be redrawn at the artist's discretion to fit a different edit. For instance, markings from a default face might be mimicked for a head turn edit. Markings can also simply be stretched/squished, rotated, or otherwise deformed to better fit an edit, such as stretching some stripes to cover a slightly wider tail than the one they came from.

When removing an edit to find markings incomplete under it, the markings should be "finished", but to what extent is up to the artist. For instance, if the pet has swirl markings and was wearing a skirt, and upon moving the skirt to the other baby you find that there are no swirls under it, you can either simply ensure any swirls that stopped at the edge of the skirt look complete or continue the swirl pattern across the rest of the flank, so long as it doesn't show anywhere that wouldn't have been covered. When filling in markings in this way, it must logically continue the same pattern. If a marking was only tiger stripes, you should not turn it into hearts and stars, for instance.

These things should only be done to fit edits or fill in blank spots, and should aim to resemble the parent as much as possible. To reiterate, entirely new markings cannot be created.



Edits


Edits should also be well-balanced. No baby should have all the same edits as a parent, unless of course the parents have identical edits, or identical except for one edit that can't be split. Babies should generally not have all the edits from both parents, either, although in some 1-baby pairings this is difficult to avoid.

Babies should aim not to be edited far more than either parent. For instance, say one parent has wings, a tail edit, a hair edit, and legwarmers, while the other parent has ear edits, nubby legs, an eye edit, and glasses. Don't give one baby the wings, tail, ears, hair, eyes, and nubby legs while the other baby just has legwarmers and glasses. Keep it balanced! A baby can be a little bit more edited than the parents, especially in 1-baby pairings, but it shouldn't go off the rails.

The same edit should not appear on every baby, unless it is very small. (Site artists should keep this a fairly rare occurrence as well.) In the above example, giving both babies glasses would probably be borderline fine, unless it is a species with massive eyes, such as Yetius, wherein glasses would be a much bigger and more noticeable edit than they would be on, for instance, an Achae or a Sors. Something like wings or nubby legs are way too major. Examples of much smaller edits that are typically fine might be small claws or a tiny fang edit.

Edits must stay in the same general position on the babies as they are on the parents. Like markings, they can be moved or distorted to fit a new edit, and should be filled in if moving something above them leaves incomplete gaps, but they must resemble their usage on the parent. A flower on the butt should not be moved to become a hair accessory, etc. New edits should not be created. Edits which were not at all visible on the parent should not appear on the baby, with some logical exceptions like removing sunglasses revealing eyes, or a back wing becoming visible alongside a front wing once a large hair edit is removed. If, though, there is for instance a gem on the forehead, and it is not a part of a larger "gems on the body" edit, and it is entirely covered by a hairdo on the parent, it would read as a new edit on the baby and should be omitted.



Shading


Babies must use only the shading present on the parents, for the most part. Minor shading/highlights can be added at the artist's discretion to make an edit fit better. For instance, if most of the edits have a small line of shading under them, but the wing added does not, a similar line of shading to make it match more stylistically is fine; or when blending pieces of two different hairstyles, a few extra highlights to make them look more like one cohesive edit is fine. Minor touch-ups, such as duplicating faint shading/light layers to show up better against a darker base color or fixing a minor bleeding error, are also permissable.



As a tip for balancing babies when parents don't have a whole lot to work with: If a baby favors one parent more in terms of edits, make it favor the other a little more in colors! (Just also remember that "favor" does not mean "clone"!)

Baby Number Add-Ons

Fertility Potion Fertility Potion / Golden Basket Charm Golden Basket Charm
These add-ons are the same in effect. The only difference is the way in which they were originally released. Either will add 1 baby to your LBC breeding, for 3 total, or 4 if also Married (see below). You cannot use both a Fertility Potion and a Golden Basket Charm.

Engagement Ring Engagement Ring
When two pets are Married, they can only breed with each other or via the Delicious Eggnog item, but some types of breeding, including Lesser, will produce 1 additional baby. This makes for 3 total, or 4 if combined with one of the add-ons above.

Lesser Fertility Potion Lesser Fertility Potion
This add-on makes your LBC breeding produce only 1 baby instead of 2. This may be desirable if, for instance, you want to cram most or all of both parents' markings onto one baby, or perhaps for character purposes, etc.

Parent Add-Ons

Blood Filtering Kit
This add-on will allow edits, markings, and colors from the baby's grandparents (the parents' parents) to be used. It only works for the generation immediately back, and of course requires Gen 2+ parents to be useful. The grandparents must be present in your lair at the time of the breeding; grandparents owned by other members will be ignored.

Brush Triad
This add-on will let you add a third parent to your mix, but requires Predicts to be used with LBC. You must either own or have permission to use the third parent, of course.


Color Add-Ons

Many LBC add-ons affect color palettes. For examples of these add-ons in use, see the Breeding Add-On Examples article.

Cool Blue Pet Carrier Cool Blue Pet Carrier
This add-on will replace the colors with cool colors-- blues, greens, and purples-- and potentially black/white/gray. Very small accents of warmer colors are rare but acceptable.

Easter Dye Pack Easter Dye Pack
This add-on will replace the colors with pastels of any color. Very small accents of darker colors are rare but acceptable.

Fireball Fireball
This add-on will replace the colors with warm colors-- reds, oranges, yellows, and browns-- and potentially black/white/gray. Very small accents of cooler colors are rare but acceptable.

Lovely Ink Lovely Ink
This add-on will replace the colors with Valentine's-inspired colors, especially (but not strictly limited to) red, pink, purple, gold, black, and white. There is a bit more artist's discretion on this than other palette-specific color add-ons.

Neutral Nuggets Neutral Nuggets
This add-on will replace the colors with neutral/"natural" colors-- black, white, grays, and browns. Very small accents of other colors are somewhat rare but acceptable. Very desaturated colors, like a soft gray-blue or light olive green, are more likely to pass with a little heavier use than a brighter color, but should still not be main colors on the baby unless they are desaturated enough to pass for a slightly-tinted gray.

Artist's Palette Artist's Palette
This add-on will replace the colors with the artist's choice of a palette. Light requests (ex: "I prefer bright colors!" or "no orange please") are acceptable, though artists are allowed to ignore them. The more vague the request, the more likely the artist won't mind accommodating.

Painted Vial Painted Vial
This add-on will replace the colors with the user's choice of a palette. Be sure to include a desired palette in your notes. If you don't, the artist will PM you for one (or have the coin's admin or helper PM you if they wish to stay anonymous). If you don't respond within 48 hours, the artist will choose a palette.

Paint Bucket Paint Bucket
This add-on will allow your Lesser Breeding Coin to function like a Painted Lesser Breeding Coin, creating new markings and colors of the user's choice. However, it is only allowed to be submitted with Predicts.

Assignment Add-Ons

Artist Ticket Artist Ticket
This add-on allows you to choose which artist you want your breeding to be assigned to, and provides a $10 tip to that artist. You can PM a coin's manager for a list of currently active artists. (Please bear in mind that with longer queues, an artist may resign before your breeding is assigned.)

Speedy Breeding Ticket Speedy Breeding Ticket
This add-on moves your breeding to the front of the queue. It will not be assigned until the next time an artist takes a list, however, so a fairly small wait should still be expected. In the rare event that there are many Speedy Breeding Tickets and/or Crystal Egg Tickets in queue for the same coin, those submitted first will be assigned first, making it possible if unlikely that an assigning will be done without getting to your breeding. It is recommended to save this add-on for coins with longer queues.

Crystal Egg Ticket Crystal Egg Ticket
This add-on does the jobs of the Artist Ticket and Speedy Breeding Ticket at the same time!


Paintbrushes

Prior to the advent of the Commission Panel and a direct tipping option when hatching babies, Aywas used Paintbrushes as an indirect USD Payment option for artists. They are currently no longer available to purchase, but Paintbrushes which still exist on site can be added to breedings to tip the artist for the following amounts.

Metal Paintbrushes Metal Paintbrushes: $4.50 USD Bronze PaintbrushesBronze Paintbrushes: $6.00 USD
Blue PaintbrushesBlue Paintbrushes: $7.50 USD Gold Paintbrushes Gold Paintbrushes: $15.00 USD
Silver Paintbrushes Silver Paintbrushes: $22.50 USD


Breeding Coin (BC) / Pendant
/ Half a Breeding Coin (Half BC) / Evil Breeding Coin (EBC) / Pendant (EBP)
This coin will allow you to breed almost any two breedable pets. With the right genus combination or add-on, it will produce 1-2 babies on a hybrid base with newly drawn edits, colors, and markings to mimic the parents. Without the right conditions for a hybrid, it will produce edits and colors/markings from one parent on the base of the other parent. The Evil variety is less reliable, but might produce "corrupted" offspring!

Add-Ons
Overview


Breeding Coins are one of the rarer coin options, but also one of the most powerful. They were periodically sold in the GP shop, but this practice has stopped while the Breeding Coin queue is shortened. They may rarely go on sale in the USD shop. They can produce babies on a new hybrid base or on the same base as their parents. The Breeding Pendant is a special, much rarer variation that does the same job, but regenerates once every three months! The Half Coin version also does the same job for cheaper, but is Predict-only and produces only one baby regardless of parents unless a compatible add-on is used to increase the number of babies.

Note that when not breeding for a new base, the Breeding Coin is nearly identical to the Holiday Breeding Coin, so it may be advisable to search for both in the user market and see which is currently a better value. [See the HBC info.]

The Evil Breeding Coin has a 50% chance to break rather than work when used, but if it works, the offspring then have a 50% chance to have "evil" or "corrupted" edits. Unlike thematic add-ons, there is no particular limit on what the artist might consider "evil", meaning it might produce more varied edits than such add-ons. The Evil Breeding Pendant works the same way, but regenerates once every 3 months. (Note: if the Pendant "breaks", it will still regenerate good as new.) As of September, 2019, Evil Breeding Coins/Pendants always produce breedable offspring.

As these varieties all function on mostly the same rules aside from the differences detailed above, the rest of this article will refer to "this coin" or "BCs" to collectively mean all varieties of BC and EBC.



Genus Restrictions


This coin can be used to breed nearly any two breedable pets. Only certain combinations produce hybrids (ex: Vyne x Reve = Kolibri) unless an add-on is used to control the offspring species instead; see the Add-Ons tab. The valid hybrid combinations can be found on the Genus Guide page under the Hybrids section.

This coin cannot be used to breed two Ultra Rare (Xaoc, Neura, Violinn, Boreas, or Nimbus) pets together unless an add-on that will result in a different genus is used. When breeding one Ultra Rare parent to any non-Ultra Rare genus without an add-on that will change the offspring's genus, there is a very small chance of the baby being the Ultra Rare genus: 1% for Xaoc and 2% for other Ultra Rare genera.

This coin can be used to produce Boreas or Nimbus (Ultra Rare "Grand Hybrids"), but only with the use of the Hybrid DNA add-on.



PSD Requirements


When breeding for a new base, PSDs are typically not needed, though some artists may like the option to see layers to understand how a certain effect was achieved. When breeding for offspring that use the parents' base(s), PSDs are not strictly required, but are highly recommended both to be easier for the artist and to get back the best quality offspring.



Pairing Examples


As a Melo and a Soli, this pair without an add-on would produce (a) hybrid(s): namely Quetzal.

X



As a Kitsera and a Reve, this pair is BC-compatible, but would not produce (a) hybrids. Since neither is Ultra Rare, without an add-on to change the offspring genus, it would have a 50/50 chance to produce a Kitsera and/or a Reve as the offspring.

X



As a Campe and a Neura, this pair would not produce (a) hybrid(s). Since Neura is Ultra Rare, without an add-on to change the offspring genus, it would have a 98% chance of producing a Campe baby, and a 2% chance of producing a Neura baby.

X



As an Inari and a Paleo, this pair could produce a Rare Hybrid with the Hybrid DNA add-on, but without it, they would have a 50/50 chance of producing Inari and/or Paleo offspring.

X



As a Boreas and a Nimbus-- two Ultra Rare genera-- these pets would NOT be BC-compatible unless an add-on such as Hybrid Genetics Kit or Unidentified Embryo were used.

X

Under normal circumstances, BCs randomly roll 1-2 babies. (Half BCs produce 1.) Some add-ons can guarantee only one or guarantee two; see the Add-Ons tab. Married pairs produce a maximum of 3 babies. Pairs that viably produce hybrids or have a genus-affecting add-on produce edits on new bases. Other pairs produce edits mimicking one parent on the other parents' base.

Without an add-on that affects edit percentage, each baby should be roughly 30% edited, although this is a little loose, so it isn't uncommon to have something like one baby at 25% and another at 32%, for instance. However, when parents are site genera, only parts of the pet that were edited should pass to the babies unless the pets are metal or close to it, and even then "genus base edits" should be used sparingly. This means if the parents both have few to no edits, and no thematic add-on or edit percentage add-on is present, the offspring may be well under 30%. Two fully metal pets with a viable hybrid will produce a metal hybrid.

Silver Species/"Pet" genera parents can pass any part of themselves as an edit to offspring, and as such should usually result in babies around the full 30%. That said, even they may result in under-edited babies if the bodies are very similar. Ex: breeding a metal Wrayth to an octopus Pet might leave an artist without a lot to do that wouldn't be redundant.

When an edit percentage add-on is used, such as an Edit Potion, then parts of the site genera base may be used only after using all edits that can reasonably be used. For instance, a tail tip edit wouldn't translate to a genus without a tail (like Yetius) or with an unconventional tail (like Inari), and trying to put full wing edits on a species that is mostly wing (like Pluma or Spibby) may be too much to feasibly do even with the add-on. As such, these sorts of edits can be ignored. Once all feasible edits are used, if a baby still needs more edits to reach the add-on-mandated edit percentage, then default parts of the parent's site genus (such as Melo's default ears) can be used as edits on the baby.

New edits will be drawn to mimic the parents, and the parents' colors and markings will be mixed and reproduced. Some add-ons can change the colors and/or markings, and some add-ons can be used to produce new add-ons of a set theme. Without add-ons, colors may be used either directly (ex: blue from this parent, orange from that parent) or mixed in a paint sense (ex: sky blue and purple becoming indigo). While dividing edits/colors/markings evenly between babies is not as strictly enforced as it is on coins like the LBC, babies should always show a clear influence from both parents.

Whether on new or parental bases, baby bases can be entirely reshaded if the artist desires, though this is not required. Artists must do the reshading themselves-- i.e. cannot use reshades from the Edit Repository, etc-- unless explicit permission has been given by the original artist of a reshade to use it for breeding, specifically. Permission must be given in the form of on-site PM and/or Edit Repository description, as these cannot be edited later. So long as one is the original artist or has explicit permission, the same base reshade can be used on any number of babies.

Edits and markings added to the baby must be entirely new if site-produced; for Predicts, reusing edits is acceptable only if approved by the artist and buyer, as well as clearly conveyed as such to all potential owners of those edits. (Ex: no selling predicts that use "stock" edits without telling people they're reused). "Stock" edits must be produced by the artist for this purpose, and cannot be used on things like site pot submissions (ex: Faux box, Mayday) or site pets. Under no circumstances should edits from a site pet or unrelated custom be taken to use on a baby; doing so will be punished harshly. Tracing edits directly is also not allowed.

"Edits" produced by taking away a normal part of the base-- ex: recreating the area under a Campe's wing-- may be reused on any number of babies both in predicts and site-produced babies. Similar to shading, these edits/un-edits/genus deconstructions must be done by the artist in question or given explicit permission to be used specifically for breeding via PM or Edit Repository description. (Several base deconstructions with such permission can be found tagged under Metal / Reshade currently.) Note that taking away parts of the base, both on hybrids and when using one of the parents as a base, this does count against the total edit percentage.

When breeding with an Evil Breeding Coin, artists get free reign on what they consider an "evil" edit. Dark magic, sinister vibes, zombification, monstrous appearances, ripped parts, body horror, and more are all viable and may present in any combination. Users should note if there is anything they don't want (i.e. "no gore") in the Breeding Notes when going through the site queue.

Here are some examples of pets bred with a BC and what the offspring looked like.

Baby Number & Edit Percentage Add-Ons

Basic Edit Randomizer Basic Edit Randomizer
This add-on allows you to select a brief prompt (ex: "pirate", "sky ninja", "garden", or even "artist's choice") to have parent edits ignored and your offspring edited to the prompt instead. This version provides 30% edits like normal breedings and retains the 50% chance of one or two babies. Without a Painted Bottle, the offspring will still have colors and markings like the parent.

Edit Randomizer Edit Randomizer
This add-on allows you to select a brief prompt (ex: "goblin", "hamster", "lava monster", or even "artist's choice") to have parent edits ignored and your offspring edited to the prompt instead. This version provides 50% edits at the cost of only producing one baby. Without a Painted Bottle, the offspring will still have colors and markings like the parent.

Grand Edit Randomizer Grand Edit Randomizer
This add-on allows you to select a brief prompt (ex: "frilly", "robo-kitty", "dryad", or even "artist's choice") to have parent edits ignored and your offspring edited to the prompt instead. This version provides 75% edits at the cost of only producing one baby, and is done by the Grand Team. Without a Painted Bottle, the offspring will still have colors and markings like the parent.

Edit Potion Edit Potion
This add-on results in 50% edits rather than the normal 30%, but guarantees only one baby in exchange.

Grand Edit Potion Grand Edit Potion
This add-on results in 75% edits rather than the normal 30%, but guarantees only one baby in exchange. Babies are done by the Grand Team.

Percentage Randomizer Percentage Randomizer
This add-on will roll either 0%, 30%, 50%, or 75% edits for each offspring. Any combination of numbers is possible for pairs with multiple offspring, including multiple zeroes, making it risky but interesting and potentially rewarding, too.

Engagement Ring Engagement Ring
When two pets are Married, they can only breed with each other or via the Delicious Eggnog item, but some types of breeding will produce 1 additional baby. In the case of Breeding Coins, it guarantees 2 rather than the normal 50/50 chance, or allows 3 when combined with a Greater Fertility Potion.

Greater Fertility Potion Greater Fertility Potion
This add-on guarantees two babies rather than only having a 50/50 chance.

Lesser Fertility Potion Lesser Fertility Potion
This add-on guarantees your BC breeding will produce only 1 baby instead of 2. This may be desirable if, for instance, your parents have low edits that would all fit well on one and you can't think of anything to do with the other, etc.

Derpy Dragon Derpy Dragon
This add-on will add an additional, unbreedable offspring to your breeding made by "derp breeding" the other two offspring together or the single offspring to itself.

Genus-Changing & Alt Line Add-Ons

Genetics Kit Genetics Kit
This add-on will result in the offspring being a Common, Uncommon, or Raw genus of choice rather than a hybrid or parent genus. Old or Alt lines may be requested, but artists are not required to follow that part of the request. They usually will as long as it's asked politely and they think the baby will look okay, however.

Genus in a BottleGenus in a Bottle
This add-on allows the user to choose any non-Rare genus, including parent SCCs if applicable, for each baby in a BC breeding. You may also choose one Rare to have a small chance of rolling it instead. See the full Genus in a Bottle KB article for more info.

Halloween Dice Halloween Dice
This special add-on is both a thematic add-on and a genus selection add-on. It allows you to choose one hybrid to make all of your offspring, and then the artist will choose a random horror/Halloween type theme to edit the babies after. (You may ask for certain omissions, ex: "no gore".)

Hybrid DNA Hybrid DNA / Diluted Hybrid DNA
These add-ons allow you to breed select hybrid parents to produce Grand Hybrid offspring. The full version's breedings are handled by the Grand Team. The Diluted version requires Predicts.

Hybrid EmbryoHybrid Embryo
This add-on makes the offspring a random hybrid genus. The artist can choose whether to make them the same or different genera. Any two pets can produce a hybrid this way.

Hybrid Genetics Kit Hybrid Genetics Kit
This add-on makes the offspring a hybrid genus of the user's choice; be sure to put one in the breeding notes. Multiple offspring will be the same genus. Any two pets can produce a hybrid this way. This add-on is also sometimes used for coins that make specific genera to change the parents involved.

Idolia Mask Idolia Mask
This add-on gives a 25% chance to make one of the offspring the special Idolia hybrid genus.

Magic Custom Trove Magic Custom Trove
This add-on will produce alt hybrid lines, assuming they are available for the hybrid in question.

Sippy CupSippy Cup

This add-on will tell the artist to use Baby alt lines for your hybrid genus, if Baby lines exist for it. Check the Baby Hybrid article to see options.

Unidentified Embryo Unidentified Embryo
This add-on makes each offspring a random, different genus.

Unstable Genetics Kit Unstable Genetics Kit
This add-on will make ONE baby from your breeding into a Rare genus. No longer produces Very Rare genera, meaning your options are Serrul, Flux, Quil, Selkie, Ornaga, Cirrus, Vespa, Koaf, Spino, Scarl, Miokit, Jura, and Daevo. If the breeding rolls two babies, the second will be a normal genus.

Color & Marking Add-Ons

Artist's Palette Artist's Palette
This add-on will still use the markings of the parents, but in random colors chosen by the artist.

Painted Bottle Painted Bottle
This add-on will let you provide your artist with a marking prompt and a color palette to get entirely new colors and markings on each offspring.


Thematic Edit Add-Ons

Many BC add-ons add themed edits. For examples of these add-ons in use, see the Breeding Add-On Examples article. Limit two theme add-ons per breeding. Themes may be applied to one or all offspring, it is up to the artist and as long as the theme is visible on at least one offspring it has been used properly.

Assignment Add-Ons

Artist Ticket Artist Ticket
This add-on allows you to choose which artist you want your breeding to be assigned to, and provides a $10 tip to that artist. You can PM a coin's manager for a list of currently active artists. (Please bear in mind that with longer queues, an artist may resign before your breeding is assigned.)

Speedy Breeding Ticket Speedy Breeding Ticket
This add-on moves your breeding to the front of the queue. It will not be assigned until the next time an artist takes a list, however, so a fairly small wait should still be expected. In the rare event that there are many Speedy Breeding Tickets and/or Crystal Egg Tickets in queue for the same coin, those submitted first will be assigned first, making it possible if unlikely that an assigning will be done without getting to your breeding. It is recommended to save this add-on for coins with longer queues.

Crystal Egg Ticket Crystal Egg Ticket
This add-on does the jobs of the Artist Ticket and Speedy Breeding Ticket at the same time!


Paintbrushes

Prior to the advent of the Commission Panel and a direct tipping option when hatching babies, Aywas used Paintbrushes as an indirect USD Payment option for artists. They are currently no longer available to purchase, but Paintbrushes which still exist on site can be added to breedings to tip the artist for the following amounts.

Metal Paintbrushes Metal Paintbrushes: $4.50 USD Bronze PaintbrushesBronze Paintbrushes: $6.00 USD
Blue PaintbrushesBlue Paintbrushes: $7.50 USD Gold Paintbrushes Gold Paintbrushes: $15.00 USD
Silver Paintbrushes Silver Paintbrushes: $22.50 USD

Holiday Breeding Coin (HBC) / Pendant (HBP)
This coin will allow you to breed almost any two breedable pets. It will produce 1 baby on a parent's base with newly drawn edits, colors, and markings to mimic the other parent's. For non-Rare/Hybrid parents, you may also upload a predict for a second baby.

Add-Ons
Overview


Holiday Breeding Coins are one of the rarer coin options, but also one of the more powerful. They are sold only rarely in the GP shop or USD shop, and only when the queue can handle it. They produce 1 offspring on the same base(s) as their parents. The Holiday Breeding Pendant is a special, much rarer variation that does the same job, but regenerates once every three months! The Half Coin version also does the same job for cheaper, but is Predict-only. There is also a Half Holiday Coin Package that comes with two half coins.





Genus Restrictions


This coin can be used to breed nearly any two breedable pets. However, this coin cannot be used to breed two Ultra Rare (Xaoc, Neura, Violinn, Boreas, or Nimbus) pets together unless an add-on that will result in a different genus is used. When breeding one Ultra Rare parent to any non-Ultra Rare genus without an add-on that will change the offspring's genus, there is a very small chance of the baby being the Ultra Rare genus: 1% for Xaoc and 2% for other Ultra Rare genera.

This coin can be used to produce a new Boreas or Nimbus (Ultra Rare "Grand Hybrids"), but only with the use of the Hybrid DNA add-on.



PSD Requirements


While PSDs are not strictly required, they are extremely highly recommended both to be easier for the artist and to get back the best quality offspring. Please try to always have PSDs available, either attached to the pet or linked in the breeding notes, whenever possible. A note that you definitely don't have a PSD can also be helpful in letting your artist know they don't need to take time to contact you inquiring, giving them the most time to work around the inconvenience.



Pairing Examples


Unlike the Breeding Coin example, in which this pair would make a Quetzal, with an HBC it would make a Melo or a Soli with 50/50 odds.

X



Just like BC, this pair would produce either a Kitsera or a Reve with 50/50 odds. BC would have a chance to produce two babies, but otherwise the coins would function identically.

X



This pair is much like the above, except since Neura is Ultra Rare, without an add-on to change the offspring genus, it would have a 98% chance of producing a Campe baby, and a 2% chance of producing a Neura baby.

X



As an Inari and a Paleo, this pair could produce a Grand Hybrid with the Hybrid DNA add-on, but without it, they would have a 50/50 chance of producing Inari and/or Paleo offspring.

X



As a Boreas and a Nimbus-- two Ultra Rare genera-- these pets would NOT be HBC-compatible unless an add-on such as Genus in a Bottle or Unidentified Embryo were used.

X

Under normal circumstances, HBCs produce 1 baby, with the option to upload a second as a predict for common/uncommon pairs. (Half HBCs produce 2, both predicts.) Married pairs produce up to 3 babies, with one being site-made and two being predicts, for common/uncommon pairs. For Rare pairs, married pairs can get one site baby and upload one predict. The Holiday Fertility Potion, available in the USD shop, will add a second site-made baby to any HBC pair, and for common/uncommon pairings allows the user to pick which base(s) they want the babies to be. All pairs produce edits mimicking one parent on the other parent's base (excluding Hybrid DNA pairs which no longer function like HBCs and are handled by the Grand Team).

Each baby should be roughly 30% edited, although this is a little loose, so it isn't uncommon to have some babies a little over or under that mark. However, when parents are site genera, only parts of the pet that were edited should pass to the babies unless the pets are metal or close to it, and even then "genus base edits" should be used sparingly. This means if the parents both have few to no edits, and no thematic add-on is present, the offspring may be well under 30%. You may also use a Metal Ball add-on to guarantee no edits from the parent used, only a recolor.

Silver Species/"Pet" genera parents can pass any part of themselves as an edit to offspring, and as such should usually result in babies around the full 30%. That said, even they may result in under-edited babies if the bodies are very similar. Ex: breeding a metal Wrayth to an octopus Pet might leave an artist without a lot to do that wouldn't be redundant.

New edits will be drawn to mimic the parents, and the parents' colors and markings will be mixed and reproduced, unless the pets are the same genus on the same base lines, in which case the edits can be redrawn if needed (ex: on very mismatched Teos) or wanted, but can also be taken directly from the other parent. In this case, the HBC functions like a very expensive, theme-add-on-compatible LBC.

Some add-ons can change the colors and/or markings, and some add-ons can be used to produce new add-ons of a set theme. Without add-ons, colors may be used either directly (ex: blue from this parent, orange from that parent) or mixed in a paint sense (ex: sky blue and purple becoming indigo). When doing pairs with multiple predicts or two site babies, dividing edits/colors/markings evenly between babies is not as strictly enforced as it is on coins like the LBC, but babies should still always show a clear influence from both parents.

For HBC, artists are strongly encouraged to match the parent's shading for edits if possible. However, babies can be reshaded if the artist needs to. Artists must do the reshading themselves-- i.e. cannot use reshades from the Edit Repository, etc-- unless explicit permission has been given by the original artist of a reshade to use it for breeding, specifically. Permission must be given in the form of on-site PM and/or Edit Repository description, as these cannot be edited later. So long as one is the original artist or has explicit permission, the same base reshade can be used on any number of babies.

Edits and markings added to the baby must be entirely new if site-produced; for Predicts, reusing edits is acceptable only if approved by the artist and buyer, as well as clearly conveyed as such to all potential owners of those edits. (Ex: no selling predicts that use "stock" edits without telling people they're reused). "Stock" edits must be produced by the artist for this purpose, and cannot be used on things like site pot submissions (ex: Faux box, Mayday) or site pets. Under no circumstances should edits from a site pet or unrelated custom be taken to use on a baby; doing so will be punished harshly. Tracing edits directly is also not allowed.

"Edits" produced by taking away a normal part of the base-- ex: recreating the area under a Campe's wing-- may be reused on any number of babies both in predicts and site-produced babies. Similar to shading, these edits/un-edits/genus deconstructions must be done by the artist in question or given explicit permission to be used specifically for breeding via PM or Edit Repository description. (Several base deconstructions with such permission can be found tagged under Metal / Reshade currently.) Note that taking away parts of the base, both on hybrids and when using one of the parents as a base, this does count against the total edit percentage.

Add-Ons
Overview & Genus Restrictions


Rusted Breeding Coins are one of the cheaper and more readily available coin options. They are sold in the Trash for Treasure shop, as well as sometimes in the GP shop.

Under normal circumstances, they produce 1 baby with no edits, and are used to breed certain combinations Token/"Trash" pets for one of three "Trash Hybrids": Stellata (Chorlu x Opterix), Crystelid (Corra x Itoa), or Oculi (Garu x Serafex). Using a Hybrid Genetics Kit will allow you to breed any breedable pets instead of requiring the right combination; however, the offspring will still be one of the three Trash Hybrids. An HGK will not produce a non-Trash hybrid, although rare special events might. If you see a different hybrid produced by a RuBC, it was from an event.

Using a Polished Rock or Opalized Rock, on the other hand, will allow you to breed any two breedable pets and instead receive a Site SCC as the base. Polished Rocks art Artist's Choice; Opalized Rocks are User's Choice. This pet will still be unedited. Site SCCs are defined as:

USD Shop SCCs | Rock Custom Crystal Pets | BP Sink Pets | Mineral Crystal Pets


PSD Requirements


PSDs are not required for this coin. An artist may appreciate them to be able to see specific markings more clearly, but parent PSDs are not used directly.



Pairing Examples


As a Corra and an Itoa, this is a valid RuBC pair; they would make a Crystelid.

X



While these are both Token pets, they are not a viable combination. This pair would require an add-on.

X



Since these two pets have an Opalized Rock, they are fine to breed with a RuBC.



Rusted Breeding baby rules are very simple. Simply recreate the colors and markings of the parents on a new base. In the event that each parent has only one sort of marking, using one parent's marking in the other parent's colors is also fine.

Alternate ideas might include (A) using markings in pieces: for instance, if Parent A has only tiger stripes, and Parent B has only swirls, perhaps swirls on the body and stripes on the legs, etc; or (B) divide the colors/markings between separate parts: for instance, the back of a Crystelid might be colored very differently from its main body, and its gems can be good for accent colors from the parents, etc.

Colors can be used directly from the parents or mixed in the sense of mixing paint. Colors must be used in similar proportion to the parent colors, however. For instance, if one parent is mostly blue, and the other parent is black with some small yellow markings, the baby will not be primarily yellow or green as there is not enough yellow to stretch that far. A very slightly more greenish/cyan shade of blue may pass, as would small green markings, though in this case not both. Colors can be stretched a little, especially by site artists, so small yellow markings might become a medium amount of yellow on the baby, etc, but this should be done in heavy moderation.

Above all, be certain to use something major from each parent. In the above example, trying to use at least a little black and blue since they are the dominant colors of each parent is ideal. So long as a baby reflects both parents well, it will generally pass.

Here are some examples of pets bred with a RuBC and what the offspring looked like.

Offspring Genus Changing Add-Ons

Hybrid Genetics Kit Hybrid Genetics Kit
This add-on makes the offspring a hybrid genus of the user's choice; be sure to put one in the breeding notes. Any two pets can produce a hybrid this way. For RuBC, the hybrid must be produced via Token genera only. Hybrids of Ay or Ara genera are not viable.

Polished Rock
This add-on will make the baby a site SCC of the artist's choice. For a list of site SCCs, see the submission rules tab.

Opalized Rock
This add-on will make the baby a site SCC of the user's choice. For a list of site SCCs, see the submission rules tab.


Color & Marking Add-Ons

Cool Blue Pet Carrier Cool Blue Pet Carrier
This add-on will replace the colors with cool colors-- blues, greens, and purples-- and potentially black/white/gray. Very small accents of warmer colors are rare but acceptable.

Easter Dye Pack Easter Dye Pack
This add-on will replace the colors with pastels of any color. Very small accents of darker colors are rare but acceptable.

Fireball Fireball
This add-on will replace the colors with warm colors-- reds, oranges, yellows, and browns-- and potentially black/white/gray. Very small accents of cooler colors are rare but acceptable.

Lovely Ink Lovely Ink
This add-on will replace the colors with Valentine's-inspired colors, especially (but not strictly limited to) red, pink, purple, gold, black, and white. There is a bit more artist's discretion on this than other palette-specific color add-ons.

Neutral Nuggets Neutral Nuggets
This add-on will replace the colors with neutral/"natural" colors-- black, white, grays, and browns. Very small accents of other colors are somewhat rare but acceptable. Very desaturated colors, like a soft gray-blue or light olive green, are more likely to pass with a little heavier use than a brighter color, but should still not be main colors on the baby unless they are desaturated enough to pass for a slightly-tinted gray.

Artist's Palette Artist's Palette
This add-on will still use the markings of the parents, but in random colors chosen by the artist.

Painted Vial Painted Vial
This add-on will replace the colors with the user's choice of a palette. Be sure to include a desired palette in your notes. If you don't, the artist will PM you for one (or have the coin's admin or helper PM you if they wish to stay anonymous). If you don't respond within 48 hours, the artist will choose a palette.

Painted Bottle Painted Bottle
This add-on will let you provide your artist with a marking prompt and a color palette to get entirely new colors and markings on each offspring. In the case of a RuBC, it makes the parents irrelevant except for determining genus without a Rock.


Assignment Add-Ons

Artist Ticket Artist Ticket
This add-on allows you to choose which artist you want your breeding to be assigned to, and provides a $10 tip to that artist. You can PM a coin's manager for a list of currently active artists. (Please bear in mind that with longer queues, an artist may resign before your breeding is assigned.)

Speedy Breeding Ticket Speedy Breeding Ticket

Radioactive Breeding Coin (RBC) / Pendant (RBP)
This coin will allow you to breed any two breedable pets. If it doesn't break, it will always produce 1 baby, which will be either a mutant or an unedited Metal baby.

Overview & Genus Restrictions


Radioactive Breeding Coins are one of the cheapest and most readily available coin options. They are sold in the Premium Purchases shop. The Radioactive Breeding Pendant does the same job and regenerates every 30 days. It is the only consistently available breeding pendant, being sold in the SP shop. Radioactive coins are unstable, however, and 50% of them fail or "break" upon use. Don't worry, a Pendant that "breaks" will still regenerate next month.

About 80% of babies produced by RBCs are unbreedable "Mutants". Mutant babies are made by chopping up PNGs and piecing them together into often-bizzare combinations. Pieces can be used multiple times. Much more info on what can be done with mutants can be found in the Baby Rules tab.

The other 20% of babies are breedable Metal colorations, using colors and markings from the parents. The genera of these babies, sometimes called "Normals" to distinguish from Mutants, vary. There is a 25% chance of rolling one of the Rare genera Squishy or Seriforme. The rest will either be Hybrids, or Common/Uncommon/Token/Raw/Trinket. Alt lines without designated custom makers are viable. For example, an artist could choose any of the Melo bases that can be made with a Metal Custom Crystal, but could not use the Love Potion #9 Melo lineart for a metal offspring.

PSD Requirements


PSDs are not required for this coin. An artist may appreciate them to be able to see specific markings more clearly for Metals, and a mutant artist may rarely appreciate being able to more easily separate one piece, but parent PSDs are not inherently used directly.



Pairing Examples


ALL breedable pets can be bred with an RBC.
Metal/Normal Babies


Baby rules for Metals/Normals are very simple. Simply recreate the colors and markings of the parents on a new base. In the event that each parent has only one sort of marking, using one parent's marking in the other parent's colors is also fine.

Alternate ideas might include (A) using markings in pieces: for instance, if Parent A has only tiger stripes, and Parent B has only swirls, perhaps swirls on the body and stripes on the legs, etc; or (B) divide the colors/markings between separate parts: for instance, the back of a Crystelid might be colored very differently from its main body, and its gems can be good for accent colors from the parents, etc.

Colors can be used directly from the parents or mixed in the sense of mixing paint. Colors must be used in similar proportion to the parent colors, however. For instance, if one parent is mostly blue, and the other parent is black with some small yellow markings, the baby will not be primarily yellow or green as there is not enough yellow to stretch that far. A very slightly more greenish/cyan shade of blue may pass, as would small green markings, though in this case not both. Colors can be stretched a little, especially by site artists, so small yellow markings might become a medium amount of yellow on the baby, etc, but this should be done in heavy moderation.

Above all, be certain to use something major from each parent. In the above example, trying to use at least a little black and blue since they are the dominant colors of each parent is ideal. So long as a baby reflects both parents well, it will generally pass.



Mutant Babies


Mutant rules are a bit more complex. Mutants should adhere to all of the following guidelines:

-- Use at least one MAJOR body part per parent. (This includes third parents from Mysterious DNA.) Parts can be duplicated, flipped, rotated, scaled, and deformed, as long as they are still recognizable. Blur/smudge is allowed to soften edges to blend parts together, but do not deform or blur into obscurity.

-- Do not erase body parts to make new items or markings out of them. For example, erasing a heart into a pet, or stripes, etc, is not allowed. Erasing along existing markings is acceptable only if they remain markings. For instance, erasing part of a Melo and having some of its stripes covering the body of a Soli with the Soli's markings visible underneath is fine. Erasing to turn those stripes into tentacles, etc, is not fine.

-- Mini pets are no longer allowed. The mutant should take up at least 25% (10,000 pixels minimum) of the canvas space. A main mutant and a "mini mutant" on the canvas together is allowed (such as a flying butterfly made out of parts, fluttering around the main mutant). If the mini has wings, it's fine to sort of place it in the canvas. But if the mini mutant does not have wings, it needs to be logical. It can be climbing on the main mutant or snuggled next to it, but not floating on the canvas.

-- If 2 pets of the same genus are bred, please do not make the baby look like a LBC/MBC baby. It needs to be mutated.

-- Be watchful of stray pixels or color bleeds.

-- 50/50 mutants (half a parent plopped on top of half of the other parent) are allowed, but discouraged. While simple mutants are fine, we consider that too simple for most mutants. If the majority of your list is highly simplified mutants, they will start being denied and you will need to put more parts on them.

-- If you use a full unaltered image of a parent, it does NOT count towards your major body part contributed from that parent. So having one unaltered parent sitting there with 3 copies of the other unaltered parent climbing on it is not acceptable. You need to still have a mutant with a main body part from each parent in that canvas. The only exception is when working from mini-pets where it is nearly impossible to break it down farther; multiple copies of the pet should generally be used in this case.

-- Make a coherent creature or design.

Here are some examples of pets bred with a RBC and what the offspring looked like.

Radioactive-Only Add-Ons

Mutagenic Ooze Mutagenic Ooze
This add-on eliminates the chance of a Normal baby, guaranteeing a Mutant.

Mysterious DNA
This add-on will add a third parent to the breeding. The artist will pick any random site pet to fill this role. This works for both Mutants and Normals.


Assignment Add-Ons

Artist Ticket Artist Ticket
This add-on allows you to choose which artist you want your breeding to be assigned to, and provides a $10 tip to that artist. You can PM a coin's manager for a list of currently active artists. (Please bear in mind that with longer queues, an artist may resign before your breeding is assigned.)

Speedy Breeding Ticket Speedy Breeding Ticket
This add-on moves your breeding to the front of the queue. It will not be assigned until the next time an artist takes a list, however, so a fairly small wait should still be expected. In the rare event that there are many Speedy Breeding Tickets and/or Crystal Egg Tickets in queue for the same coin, those submitted first will be assigned first, making it possible if unlikely that an assigning will be done without getting to your breeding. It is recommended to save this add-on for coins with longer queues.

Crystal Egg Ticket Crystal Egg Ticket
This add-on does the jobs of the Artist Ticket and Speedy Breeding Ticket at the same time!


Paintbrushes

Prior to the advent of the Commission Panel and a direct tipping option when hatching babies, Aywas used Paintbrushes as an indirect USD Payment option for artists. They are currently no longer available to purchase, but Paintbrushes which still exist on site can be added to breedings to tip the artist for the following amounts.

Scribble Breeding Coin (ScrBC)
/ Smudged Scribble Breeding Coin
This coin will allow you to breed any two breedable pets, excluding Xaoc x Xaoc. It produces 1 baby, or 2 babies with an add-on, in a fun scribbly style. The smudged coin produces 1 unbreedable baby.
Submission Rules
Baby Rules
Baby Examples
Add-Ons
Overview & Genus Restrictions


Scribble Breeding Coins are moderately expensive and go on sale in the GP shop only periodically. This is in part because the coin has the potential to produce new SCC Species founders when combined with the Derpy Dragon add-on or used on Married pairs. The Smudged Scribble Coin is a cheaper alternative, but only produces 1 unbreedable baby. The baby can be made breedable with a Scribble Pen, however.

Any breedable pets can be ScrBC bred, with the exception of Xaoc x Xaoc. These can be bred if a Brush Triad is used to add a third parent to the mix, but the baby's base must favor the non-Xaoc parent.

PSD Requirements


PSDs are not required for this coin. An artist may appreciate them to be able to see specific markings or edits more clearly on a complicated pet, but parent PSDs are not inherently used directly.



Pairing Examples


ALL breedable pets can be bred with an ScrBC, excluding Xaoc x Xaoc.
Scribble babies can have a lot of liberty taken, especially in regards to pose and expression, which can be nearly anything. However, they must adhere to normal pet rules (i.e. humanoid rules, foreground/background rules, object rules, etc.) and follow a few guidelines specific to scribbles.

Lines should be doodly, and thicker lines are preferred although not strictly required. Color should bleed outside the lines and transparency should bleed within the lines, giving a "scribbled" look. Cartoonish/exaggerated features are encouraged. Babies can be declined for being too high quality, as that drifts out of the realm of Scribbles and into Platinum.

Colors and markings should be mixed from the parents like any other coin.

Here are some examples of pets bred with a ScrBC and what the offspring looked like.

Parent and Offspring Add-Ons

Brush Triad Brush Triad
This add-on allows you to link a third parent in the breeding notes to incorporate into the breeding. You must have the third parent in your own lair at the time of breeding.

Derpy Dragon
This add-on will add a second offspring to a normal (non-smudged) Scribble breeding. The Derpy Dragon does not stack with Married bonus, and Scribbles produce 2 babies max.

Engagement Ring Engagement Ring
When two pets are Married, they can only breed with each other or via the Delicious Eggnog item, but some types of breeding, including (non-smudged) Scribbles, will produce 1 additional baby. Married bonuses do not stack with the Derpy Dragon, and Scribbles produce 2 babies max.


Color Add-Ons

Many ScrBC add-ons affect color palettes. For examples of these add-ons in use, see the Breeding Add-On Examples article.

Cool Blue Pet Carrier Cool Blue Pet Carrier
This add-on will replace the colors with cool colors-- blues, greens, and purples-- and potentially black/white/gray. Very small accents of warmer colors are rare but acceptable.

Easter Dye Pack Easter Dye Pack
This add-on will replace the colors with pastels of any color. Very small accents of darker colors are rare but acceptable.

Fireball Fireball
This add-on will replace the colors with warm colors-- reds, oranges, yellows, and browns-- and potentially black/white/gray. Very small accents of cooler colors are rare but acceptable.

Lovely Ink Lovely Ink
This add-on will replace the colors with Valentine's-inspired colors, especially (but not strictly limited to) red, pink, purple, gold, black, and white. There is a bit more artist's discretion on this than other palette-specific color add-ons.

Neutral Nuggets Neutral Nuggets
This add-on will replace the colors with neutral/"natural" colors-- black, white, grays, and browns. Very small accents of other colors are somewhat rare but acceptable. Very desaturated colors, like a soft gray-blue or light olive green, are more likely to pass with a little heavier use than a brighter color, but should still not be main colors on the baby unless they are desaturated enough to pass for a slightly-tinted gray.

Artist's Palette Artist's Palette
This add-on will replace the colors with the artist's choice of a palette. Light requests (ex: "I prefer bright colors!" or "no orange please") are acceptable, though artists are allowed to ignore them. The more vague the request, the more likely the artist won't mind accommodating.

Painted Bottle Painted Bottle
This add-on will let you provide your artist with a marking prompt and a color palette to get entirely new colors and markings on each offspring. In the case of a RuBC, it makes the parents irrelevant except for determining genus without a Rock.


Thematic Edit Add-Ons

Many ScrBC add-ons add themed edits. For examples of these add-ons in use, see the Breeding Add-On Examples article. Limit two theme add-ons per breeding. Themes may be applied to one or all offspring, it is up to the artist and as long as the theme is visible on at least one offspring it has been used properly.

Derp Breeding Coin (DBC, Derp)
This coin will allow you to breed two pets of the same genus and base lines to produce an unbreedable offspring made via layer effect overlaying.
Submission Rules

Baby Examples
Add-Ons
Overview & Genus Restrictions


Derp Breeding Coins are the cheapest and most widely available breeding option, with coins being sold regularly in the Premium shop. Each coin produces 1 offspring made by overlaying one PNG on top of the other and using some sort of layer effect. The babies are often bizarre and always unbreedable.

Breeding pairs must be the same genus and base lineart. Any genus can be bred excluding Boreas, Nimbus, Violinn, Neura, and Xaoc.


PSD Requirements


PSDs are not required for these coins. They are, in fact, un-required. PSDs should never be used for this coin.



Pairing Examples


This pair has the same genus and lineart, so it is Derp compatible.

X


This pair is the same genus, but different bases, and is not compatible.

X
In order to create derp babies, one PNG is placed on top of the other. Often times they line up, but they can be rotated, flipped, or off-skew as well. The top one is placed on a layer mode, such as overlay, multiply, screen, etc, and transparency toggled.

Sometimes a few layers of effects can be done, but if so, every instance of each PNG must line up. For instance, if we had a parent named Blue and we wanted to do overlay and multiply both, the two instances of Blue's PNG would need to be lined up, not separated from each other in any way. See the Baby Examples tab for visual aides.

Blind Date (BD) / Delicious Eggnog (Nog)
/Speed Dating Slip/Mininog

Add-Ons
Overview & Genus Restrictions


Blind Dates are one of the more expensive breeding options, with coins being sold regularly in the USD shop. Delicious Eggnog is a potentially cheaper alternative, but it only has a 10% chance of succeeding. Both will match your pet to the previous or next pet to use the item, and produce a single breedable offspring for each member involved in a match. Delicious Eggnog is also usable on married pairs outside the marriage. Finally, the Speed Dating Slip works just like a Blind Date, and the Mininog works just like a Delicious Eggnog, but are predicts-only.

Any breedable pets can be bred this way, although some users have breeding rules against random matches for an SCC species or edit set they own rights to, so be sure to check for things like that if you bought a pet from someone else.

Offspring are always 30% hybrids for Delicious Eggnog, chosen randomly by the artist. Blind Dates can be 50% edited and any non-Rare genus, also chosen randomly by the artist, with a low chance of rolling a Rare. Users are allowed to put 5 non-Rare and (for BDs) 1 Rare genera they would like the artist to choose from. More is allowed (ex: putting 7 options instead of 5) but less will be ignored.


PSD Requirements


PSDs are not required for this coin. An artist may appreciate them to be able to see specific markings or edits more clearly on a complicated pet, but parent PSDs are not inherently used directly.



Pairing Examples


ALL breedable pets can be bred with these coins.
Babies should be 50% edited for Blind Dates or 30% edited for Nogs. Very little wiggle room may be allowed above (ex: 52% would certainly squeeze by), and depending on the parents under-edited babies may occur as well. When parents are site genera, only parts of the pet that were edited should pass to the babies unless the pets are metal or close to it, and even then "genus base edits" should be used sparingly. This means if the parents both have few to no edits, and no thematic add-on or edit percentage add-on is present, the offspring may be well under 50/30%. Two fully metal site genera will produce a metal offspring.

Silver Species/"Pet" genera parents can pass any part of themselves as an edit to offspring, and as such should usually result in babies around the full percentage. That said, even they may result in under-edited babies if the bodies are very similar. Ex: breeding a metal Wrayth to an octopus Pet might leave an artist without a lot to do that wouldn't be redundant.

New edits will be drawn to mimic the parents, and the parents' colors and markings will be mixed and reproduced. Some add-ons can change the colors and/or markings, and some add-ons can be used to produce new add-ons of a set theme. Without add-ons, colors may be used either directly (ex: blue from this parent, orange from that parent) or mixed in a paint sense (ex: sky blue and purple becoming indigo). While dividing edits/colors/markings evenly between babies is not as strictly enforced as it is on coins like the LBC, babies should always show a clear influence from both parents.

Whether on new or parental bases, baby bases can be entirely reshaded if the artist desires, though this is not required. Artists must do the reshading themselves-- i.e. cannot use reshades from the Edit Repository, etc-- unless explicit permission has been given by the original artist of a reshade to use it for breeding, specifically. Permission must be given in the form of on-site PM and/or Edit Repository description, as these cannot be edited later. So long as one is the original artist or has explicit permission, the same base reshade can be used on any number of babies.

Edits and markings added to the baby must be entirely new if site-produced; for Predicts, reusing edits is acceptable only if approved by the artist and buyer, as well as clearly conveyed as such to all potential owners of those edits. (Ex: no selling predicts that use "stock" edits without telling people they're reused). "Stock" edits must be produced by the artist for this purpose, and cannot be used on things like site pot submissions (ex: Faux box, Mayday) or site pets. Under no circumstances should edits from a site pet or unrelated custom be taken to use on a baby; doing so will be punished harshly. Tracing edits directly is also not allowed.

"Edits" produced by taking away a normal part of the base-- ex: recreating the area under a Campe's wing-- may be reused on any number of babies both in predicts and site-produced babies. Similar to shading, these edits/un-edits/genus deconstructions must be done by the artist in question or given explicit permission to be used specifically for breeding via PM or Edit Repository description. (Several base deconstructions with such permission can be found tagged under Metal / Reshade currently.) Note that taking away parts of the base, both on hybrids and when using one of the parents as a base, this does count against the total edit percentage.

Here are some examples of pets bred with a BD and what the offspring looked like. Keep in mind each member received only one of the two babies.

Add-Ons
Overview & Genus Restrictions


Painted Metal Breeding Coins and Painted Lesser Breeding Coins are some of the more widely available breeding options, with coins being sold regularly in the USD shop. They produce offspring with new colors and markings based on a color prompt and a theme prompt the user provides the artist. Each produces 1 offspring per coin. Married pairs produce 2 offspring for PLBC, and have a 30% chance of producing 2 for PMBC.

Common, Uncommon, Token, Trinket, and Raw genera can be bred with these coins. Rare genera can be bred with the use of the Painted Gold add-on, excluding Boreas, Nimbus, Violinn, Neura, and Xaoc. Hybrids can be PLBC bred without add-ons, but can only be PMBC bred with Painted Gold. Breeding pairs must be the same genus and base lineart, and in the case of PMBCs must have identical edits. Offspring will be the same genus as the parents.

When submitting a breeding with any painted coin, please be sure to include the following form:

Theme: (Example: Tiger, Egyptian, Henna)
Color Scheme: (Example: White/Black/Gold, Sunset, a link to ColorLovers, etc)

Important: Limit your "Theme" description to a maximum of ten words and a maximum of one reference picture. This is not a commission, so please do not be overly descriptive. If the artist wants more detail from you, the artist is free to contact you directly to request more. Themes that are overly detailed or that violate this rule will be refunded.

PSD Requirements


PSDs are strictly required for these coins. Pairs with missing PSDs will be refunded. That said, PMBC breedings need only one PSD, and in either case blank versions are acceptable so long as all the edits are present.



Pairing Examples


This pair has identical lines, so these are both PMBC and PLBC compatible.

X


This pair has different edits, so it would be PLBC compatible, but not PMBC compatible.

X


This pair may look similar, but it is Old X New, meaning it is neither PLBC nor PMBC compatible.

X
Coloring and Shading


Artists get a lot of creative license with how they interpret prompts. As art is subjective, it is up to the discretion of the breeding helper if a coloration fits the theme prompt. The colors are a bit more objective, but some wiggle room may be allowed so long as the same overall end effect is achieved. If you feel a breeding does not fit a prompt given, please post it in Breeding Mistakes with your reasoning.

Remember, no new edits should be added. Glows that bleed outside the lines and some markings that include shading can count as edits, so be careful. Scales, stitches, and robotic paneling (not complex parts) do not typically count as edits. Shading should remain the same as the parent(s), although small adjustments can be made, such as bringing out highlights a little more or, in PLBC, adding a little shading under an accessory edit to make it fit in with other edits that have such under-shading, etc.



Edit Mixing - PLBC Only


No baby should have all the same edits as a parent, unless of course the parents have identical edits, or identical except for one edit that can't be split. Babies should generally not have all the edits from both parents, either, although in some pairings this is difficult to avoid.

Unlike with normal LBCs, having a baby be significantly more edited than the parents is not as discouraged.

Edits must stay in the same general position on the babies as they are on the parents. They can be moved or distorted to fit a new edit, and should be filled in if moving something above them leaves incomplete gaps, but they must resemble their usage on the parent. A flower on the butt should not be moved to become a hair accessory, etc.

New edits should not be created. Edits which were not at all visible on the parent should not appear on the baby, with some logical exceptions like removing sunglasses revealing eyes, or a back wing becoming visible alongside a front wing once a large hair edit is removed. If, though, there is for instance a gem on the forehead, and it is not a part of a larger "gems on the body" edit, and it is entirely covered by a hairdo on the parent, it would read as a new edit on the baby and should be omitted.

Here are some examples of pets bred with a PMBC or PLBC and what the offspring looked like.

In the rare event that there are many Speedy Breeding Tickets and/or Crystal Egg Tickets in queue for the same coin, those submitted first will be assigned first, making it possible if unlikely that an assigning will be done without getting to your breeding. It is recommended to save this add-on for coins with longer queues.

Crystal Egg Ticket Crystal Egg Ticket
This add-on does the jobs of the Artist Ticket and Speedy Breeding Ticket at the same time!


Paintbrushes

Prior to the advent of the Commission Panel and a direct tipping option when hatching babies, Aywas used Paintbrushes as an indirect USD Payment option for artists. They are currently no longer available to purchase, but Paintbrushes which still exist on site can be added to breedings to tip the artist for the following amounts.

Metal Paintbrushes Metal Paintbrushes: $4.50 USD Bronze PaintbrushesBronze Paintbrushes: $6.00 USD
Blue PaintbrushesBlue Paintbrushes: $7.50 USD Gold Paintbrushes Gold Paintbrushes: $15.00 USD
Silver Paintbrushes Silver Paintbrushes: $22.50 USD

Sketch Breeding Coin (SBC)
This coin will allow you to breed any two breedable pets excluding Xaoc x Xaoc. The artist will sketch, but not finish, the offspring as a new base. Sketch babies can be later finished by using a Sketch Pen.

Overview & Genus Restrictions


Sketch Breeding Coins are a widely available breeding option, with coins being sold regularly in the USD shop. Each coin produces 1 offspring normally, with either the use of a Derpy Dragon add-on or breeding Married pairs resulting in 2 babies. The bonuses do not stack, so 2 is the maximum number of babies outside of events.

Any breedable pets can be SBC bred, with the exception of Xaoc x Xaoc. These can be bred if a Mysterious Platinum DNA is used to add a third parent to the mix, but the baby's base must favor the non-Xaoc parent.


PSD Requirements


PSDs are not required for this coin. An artist may appreciate them to be able to see specific markings or edits more clearly on a complicated pet, but parent PSDs are not inherently used directly.



Pairing Examples


ALL breedable pets can be bred with an SBC, excluding Xaoc x Xaoc.
Sketch babies can have a lot of liberty taken, especially in regards to pose and expression, which can be nearly anything. However, they must adhere to normal pet rules (i.e. humanoid rules, foreground/background rules, object rules, etc.) and follow a few guidelines specific to sketches.

Most importantly, sketches must not look 'too finished'. Lines in a single color with a white or lightly colored base is the norm, with little or no shading. Too much shading can be grounds for a sketch to be rejected as looking too close to Platinum. Sketch offspring should not have markings, or only minimal implications of markings.

Here are some examples of pets bred with a SBC and what the offspring looked like.

Overview & Genus Restrictions


Platinum Breeding Coins are the most powerful breeding coin available. They are sold periodically in the GP or USD shop. Each coin produces 1 offspring normally, with potential for 2 from a Life Seed or Greater Life Seed. When 2 offspring are produced, it founds a new SCC Species. The Platinum Breeding Pendant does the same job, but regenerates every 3 months.

Any breedable pets can be PBC bred, with the exception of Xaoc x Xaoc. These can be bred if a Mysterious Platinum DNA is used to add a third parent to the mix, but the baby's base must favor the non-Xaoc parent.


PSD Requirements


PSDs are not required for this coin. An artist may appreciate them to be able to see specific markings or edits more clearly on a complicated pet, but parent PSDs are not inherently used directly.



Pairing Examples


ALL breedable pets can be bred with a PBC, excluding Xaoc x Xaoc.
Platinum babies can have a lot of liberty taken, especially in regards to pose and expression, which can be nearly anything. However, they must adhere to normal pet rules (i.e. humanoid rules, foreground/background rules, object rules, etc). Of course, they should also strive to be a good balance of the parents' features.

Babies must be fully finished art, with clean lines, detailed shading, and complete colors/markings. The colors and markings under normal circumstances should be a good blend of the parents.

Here are some examples of pets bred with a PBC and what the offspring looked like.
