Welcome to July! Part 2!
All the stragglers are in! Who's ready for the second half of July's content?
Breeding Season is upon us, and with it comes two new hybrids! Say hello to the Eudico (Linorm x Kernal) and the Carid (Insi x Gael)!
Breeding Coins are stocking in the GP Shop and the USD Shop/Purchase GP page has some bonuses to go along with it!
The Collect Bonus page is featuring some very nice Breeding Season items for those of you banking your bonus money!
Is it snowing? What is this, Christmas in July? The Delicious Eggnog is coming back for a quick promotional re-release now that its queue is gone! Buy GP or USD items and get this promotional item for every $10 spent. If purchasing USD items, please contact account #15 to redeem!
Be aware that the Collect Bonus items, the Delicious Eggnog, and Breeding Coins will be around until 11:59 on July 12th!
The Jeweled Crystal is featuring some new pets from Pepperly!
The Jeweled Hybrid Crystal has some as well!
Who thinks the Jeweled Rare Crystal has a Pepperly base too? You would be... right!
You've been looking forward to that new Rock Custom Crystal base, haven't you? Unfortunately, we are sad to announce that Osiem has left the RCC position, and as a result, the Rock Custom Crystal will not be having any further bases after this month's.
As a result, we have decided to open the item up to making any base that was provided for it in the past. It will continue to stock in the BP Shop but no new bases will be added any further.
The Premium Item for this month is the Rock Custom Crystal so you can celebrate its long lifespan with a custom of your own!
Everything's kind of running behind as a number of admins are occupied with real life, but we hope to get the following resolved during the month of July:
- remaining Scavenger Hunt prizes
- a new admin hired to aid Eri with Slashbot slots (from what I hear, she is training the person now!)
- update the newest genuses with their natural Adventure hidden item ability
- ID resurrectors reopened with some backend coding changes
Here's to a good July!

Welcome to July!
Welcome to the wonderful month of July!
Grab some much-deserved rest and relaxation this month with a GP Shop pet companion!
Or go on an adventure with a BP Shop sidekick!
If you colored one of these fun pets, please contact Kyu (#1010) for your payment!
Make sure to include your PayPal address if you are opting for the USD option.
We will also be collecting pet PSDs directly from the thread, so you no longer have to send them in. However, please make sure you keep the links active for two weeks (at least until mid-July) so we have time to snag 'em for science!
The Essence of July 2015 is stocking in the GP shop for your gambling desires!
Using this item will turn your active pet into a random coloration from the assortment of pet "flavors" above.
The premium monthly item should be announced soon!
The Buck Moon Lunaris is here to celebrate July birthdays!
Don't forget to check out the birthday link to claim your gift from Aywas on your big day! Need to change your birthday? Click here!

Good luck with your entries!
It's Hybrid Season! Look forward to seeing our two new hybrids in a later news post (with the Jeweled Bases and Rock Custom Crystal base!).
A monthly update from behind the scenes!
Look forward to our new foxy feature! A new fox pet was previewed a few days ago and its feature is going to debut sometime this month. In addition, we'll be celebrating Service Dog Awareness Week later in the month!
Be advised that both Eri and I are relatively unavailable until around the 10th. We should get back into the swing of things after that!

Amazon Payments removed
This is a notice that we have removed the Amazon Payments option to purchase GP and USD Items. They have decided to suspend our new account with the money in it. Suffice to say, I am not impressed with this action.
It may return if they reverse the suspension, but in the end I feel like Aywas has been treated much better by PayPal the last six years.
UPDATE: Amazon has reinstated the account and explained it was a typical account review suspension due to high volume.

Pride Month - The End
Pride Month on Aywas is coming to an end with yet another gorgeous custom-making item!
On July 1st (that's tomorrow), pick up the Pride Starstone from the Advent Calendar to submit your own Pride Lunaris. You can also pick up additional ones, if desired, in the USD Shop for $5.00 each.
We have a number of different premade colorations for you to use, or you can download the base and color your own.
The Pride Starstone will have its power from now until July 15th. This is a reminder that LGBT Pride doesn't end on June 30th, it continues forever ;)
A couple of extra items have been tossed into the Event Shop for mochi packets. Feel free to pick them up if you want! The Event Shop will be clearing its stock on July 3 11:59 PM permanently.
You can start opening Mochi Packets and Pride Stickers now! Of course, you can also use the Mochi Packets as a currency in the event shop, but it's up to you what you want to do.
Sevryns are hatching just in time to celebrate the end of Pride Month! You can collect Sevryn Eggs in the Enchanted Forest, Wasteland, Seaside, and Grassland (they're called Rainbow Eggs and Natural Eggs). Hatch these eggs to get Sevryn site pets.
You can exchange site pet Sevryns for custom making items at the Sevryn Nest if you'd rather make customs!
The timer displays which custom item is available for trade-in at the moment. It changes every two hours, and picks at random from metal, bronze, blue, and gold.
Last call for the Pride Xaoc blind auction! If you have any bids to get in, be sure to follow the instructions and submit your bid before July 1st rolls around.
Also remember to submit your Pride Dragons by 11:59 PM on July 1st, and claim your Pride Teos by July 15th!
We hope you've enjoyed Pride Month on Aywas! Remember, Pride isn't just one month. Even with adversity facing you, love and cherish yourself, and remember that all of us here do ♥
And don't forget the advent calendar tomorrow!
