Hey guys, it looks like we're rapidly (possibly?) approaching the end of free artwork with your SCC. If you'd like to take advantage of this offer, be sure to get your SCC in soon! There appear to only be around 25 or so slots left.
9:53 PM: There are four slots left. After the 100th SCC is accepted, SCCs will no longer be offering free art until all of the 100 requests have been completed (the time frame for this is unknown, but feel free to ask in the Help forum every so often, or the user-made SCC thread on the forums). After those 100 are completed we will resume offering free artwork with the SCC.
11:17 PM: There are two slots left. Please keep in mind that I don't reserve slots, so please stop asking D= Send along your SCC and the description/ref of your request ASAP to secure your spot before the SCC image pause.
4:07 PM: Slots are officially gone. I will make a newspost when free art is available again =)

Happy Orange Day! It appears...
STRANGE ROCKS ARE FALLING FROM THE SKY, FFFFFFF--
It looks like when you use a Mysterious Orange Rock on your active pet, you get one of these orange creatures D=
You all get Mysterious Orange Rocks* if you have logged in the last 3 days... trade other people to get the whole set of pets!
Orange kitty approves of orange day! (but not of the melo near him, it lacks nuff orange)
Orange Day is brought to you by Zebby (#1238)!
BTW, we just hit 11,111 users... that's kind of AWESOME.
*Apparently they keep falling all throughout the day?

There aren't very many today because there will be a special batch of pets released on Monday. =)
Have fun with these, regardless!

Welcome to November!
First let's start off with the new Cash Shop pets!
And how about a look at those new BP Shop pets...
Third, the monthly potion is out, and set as the monthly premium item...
I am delicious
Fourth, there are some new Breeding Coins in the BP Shop...
The Metal Breeding Coin allows you to breed together two same species pets of the same lineart. There is a wiggle room of 5% lineart difference. It does not allow you to breed hybrids together, but it does allow you to breed SCCs.
The Half a Lesser Breeding Coin looks like someone took a bite out of it D= It allows you to breed two same-species pets for a result of one offspring. It does not allow you to breed hybrids together, but it does allow SCCs.
The ToT and Haunted Forest will only be around until Yasu logs in next, so time is slowly running out for those features!
The trophies have been awarded but high scores will be reset when Yasu logs in next.
We are hoping for a fairly quiet month this November, and will be returning to our feature program of introducing nine new explore pets every Saturday. I believe Frey also has a small contest she wants to introduce sometime this month.
How are you doing for NaNoWriMo so far? Working hard? I've written around 7,000 words today and I'm aiming for 10,000 before November 1st is over. Go goal, go goal!

The Halloween Exchange Store
has opened and is ready for business...though the soli staffing it doesn't seem to like visitors...
He's selling many nice looking pets though.
He's also selling a cool potion...
This shop will be open until November 7th.
In the tradition of previous holidays, there has always been a shopkeeper available to submit.
If you want to have one as a pet, that's where this comes in...
This item lets you submit any of the shopkeepers as a pet. You can edit the colors but you cannot lineart edit the shopkeeper when submitting as a custom. Note that the pet cannot be bred to its same species using an LBC, unless it's another shopkeeper with the exact same lineart. You can breed it with a Breeding Coin however for both hybrids and to other SCCs (call it a poor man's SCC).
PSDs are like this 01 - 05:
This is a candy.
For the duration of Halloween (and maaaaybe longer, but right now it's just Halloween) you can knock on people's doors by going to the Online User list.
There, you will be transported to the Trick or Treat page. When someone comes to your door, you can trick them (which gives them nothing) or treat them (which gives them one candy, and costs you 100 BP).
You can also knock on NPC doors for misc results.
If you are nice and treat people a lot...
- Shoe may stop by and give you some candy randomly
- Kaz might stop by, hate you for being nice, and destroy a lot of your candy
If you are a jerk and trick people a lot...
- Zave might come and eat half of your candy :(
- Epi might come and give you candy because he approves of mean behavior
Regardless of how you act...
- Spenser is probably going to steal candy from you.
Every so often, a random event happens...
If most of the site is being a jerk and tricking people, someone online at random will get this BC Candy Necklace. It has breeding properties...but I'm not telling you how yet!
If most of the site is being nice and treating people, someone online at random will get this Cookie Package. It has custom making properties...but I'm not telling you how yet!
"Candy" is a site currency that will be used in a shop after Halloween.
While at the bottom of this news post, this new Slingo flash game is nonetheless really awesome and keeps distracting me from posting the news...
The bank changed some. I feel most of it is self-explanatory, but now the bank offers you interest for keeping your BP in it.
Here's mine for example:
"What's this I don't even" Checking
You currently have 72,218,020 BP in your checkings account
2,166,541 BP yearly (5,936 BP daily)
Also, the bank is offering CDs. This is where you put your money away and can't touch it for a specific amount. It's the only feature that allows you interest on GP.
For example: 90 day CD - BP (15%) / GP (8%)
If I put 100 GP in a 90 day CD, in 90 days it will come back to me as 108 GP. Woooooo!
BET YOU CAN'T GUESS WHAT THIS IS
I have some HA items to add, which you'll see in the item list, but I'm getting really burnt out on adding them so you'll see them added later today. :p
All the monthly stuff closes on November 1st:
- Pet contests
- Breeding Coin sale
- Haunted Forest
So be sure to get in your extra exploring/buying/being awesome!
I think I got everything :p

OH GOD IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN
WHEN NONE OF US GET ANY SLEEP...
That's write!* It's time for NaNoWriMo 2010!
What is NaNoWriMo? It is National Novel Writing Month. This is when you spend all of November torturing yourself! HOW, YOU ASK? By writing a 50,000-word novel in one month! Sounds fun, write?* Essentially you write 1,667 words a day and you're GOLD!
There's a NaNo board that magically appeared in the Creativity forum to help put on the peer pressure to finish your work. ^_^
There are even some cool prizes for writing your beast, just to incentivize you (as if peer pressure wasn't enough, psh).
So, go prepare yourself for this month of mental torture, writing mayhem, and complete awesomeness. Believe me, there's no better feeling than OH GOD IT'S NOVEMBER 30TH I STILL HAVE 5,000 WORDS TO WRITE then finishing on time, and you're like...hey... I have a novel in this Microsoft Word document. Holy crap.
Pretty awesome, sir.
* Sad attempt at humor
