Introducing the Spino!
Something has stomped its way into the Aywas world!
... but it can't be that little guy up there. It sounds like something much larger.
With the help of a Slashbot, and a lot of patience (and possibly some gnashing of teeth), MegaCreomon (#4751) has created a new genus!
I am very excited to finally reveal...
... the Spino!
Click the image above to download the PSD.
The Spino is a distinct, rarer new Trash Shop/Token genus, which means that it has its own set of custom creators and cannot be made with the standard Tokens. Let me show you what they look like!
To create a custom Spino, you will need a Spino Token, which currently comes in Metal, Blue, and Gold levels and can be found in the Trash for Treasure Shop. You'll notice that this Token set asks for quite a bit of Trash Points, which MegaCreomon intentionally asked for to keep the Spino valuable, and because we've had so many suggestions for higher tier, exclusive items in this shop!
While you're perusing the store, you will also come across two new fauna--the Miniature Spino at the very top of this news post, and the Skeletal Spino above. They'd be the perfect companions for a new Spino custom. :3
Speaking of Spino customs, I will be setting up a BP raffle momentarily for your chance to win a custom Spino design we had created in honor of the pet's debut!
We hope you enjoy the newest member of the Aywas pet family!
If you're a fan, be sure to thank MegaCreomon for bringing the Spino to our world. <3

Reminder - Job Opening - Official Pet Colorist
I just wanted to post a quick reminder that we are still accepting applications for our USD/GP job opening for an official pet colorist/designer.
In this position, you will be coloring and editing pets (from metal to gold-level) for various site events, projects, holidays, etc. Most of your creations will be used as site pets that you find in the Aywapedia, but we will occasionally have custom requests.
To read more about the job description and to apply, please click here!
As I originally mentioned, there is no official deadline for this, as we will use the thread as needed, but I anticipate making hiring decisions this weekend.
(Sorry for the news spam, I promise I'm done for the night! XD)

Since there was no Art Gallery theme this last week, we have no winners to announce, but it is time to declare the theme for this week! :3
The current theme runs through August 16th and is Family Reunions.
Any medium is acceptable, just keep it Aywas-related as always, and have fun! This is a pretty open theme, so feel free to feature anything from pets to NPCs to parties and Phoenix Tree rendezvous.
Official Aywas stock is not permitted for this theme.

I think the item's description nicely sets the tone for the following post:
"For only ten easy payments of $99.99 you thought you'd get a worthwhile companion, but instead you just get drool and sparkles. No refunds!"
It's also a flash sale - you can get it in Trash for Treasure for today only!
That's right! This item will leave the shop at 11:59pm 10th August.
Grab one while stocks last.
(And happy 27th birthday to Frey, the Paleo-obsessed breeding admin!)
(Who shouldn't fix typos in news posts because then it becomes hilarious XD)

Trivia & Weekly Raffle!
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
I just wanted to let you know that Trivia and Raffle Crystals will be done next week, both because of the hunt and because my Internet connection is unfortunately not playing very nice with me today.
Hope that those of you playing Scav are holding up alright. :3
(And have better 'net than I do. XD)
