The art gallery has been judged!
The theme was Back to School and we received some clever entries!
Even though most people can't wait to graduate, I miss school and am jealous of everyone going back this fall, so I loved seeing your work. :3
Here are our featured winners:
The current theme features the Apple Festival!
September always reminds me of apple farms, apple pies, bobbing for apples, and of course our Flaming Apple Festival. Any medium is acceptable as long as it is apple and Aywas related! Feel free to PM me with any questions you may have. :3
Some new themes have also been added!
September 8 - September 14: Aywas Extreme Stick Figures
September 15 - September 21: Postcard*
September 22 - September 28: Tin Foil Sculptures
September 29 - October 5: Paper Dolls
Also, don't forget, if you have ideas for an Art Gallery theme, share your ideas with us. <3
The big monthly news post is coming up next!

Ay Uncommon Updates!
Whoops, looks like we accidentally baked our latest custom crystal addition a little too long!
Gray: Hey, that's what you get for putting an equine in charge of the kitchen! No opposable thumbs, y'know.
The Ashen Custom Crystal will allow you to create a metal Uncommon Ay custom.
We've been needing a metal-level item to suit this group of genera for a while, so thank you for the user suggestion. :3 Instead of using MCCs for editless Oakls and BrCCs for editless Chiros, you should now use the Ashen Custom Crystal (ACC) for all your metal Oakl, Chiro, Meep, Arak and Shen needs!
So, where can you find the ACC?
It's currently stocking in the Metalsmithing Shop for 50 pieces of Smokey Quartz.
You will find Smokey Quartz dropping at r80 in the West River and stocking in the BP Shop for 100k each so that they don't exceed that price.
Note: Since this is a change to how metal Oakls and Chiros are created, you can use MCCs and BrCCs for both, respectively, through September 30th--a full month.
We have also moved the Flame Custom Crystal out of the SP Shop and into the Premium Outlet to be more in line with its value per another user suggestion. We will be adding some items to the SP Shop at different levels to replace the removal of the FCC. If you have any ideas regarding what you'd like to see specifically in the SP Shop, please let us know!

The Apple Festival is in season!
The Phoenix Tree is dropping Flaming Apples for the month of September.
Flaming Apples are quite useful in their own right as they yield BP and a chance at a custom making item. However, if you're feeling competitive, you can turn in your Flaming Apples at the Apple Festival.
At the end of September, the top ten winners of the Apple Festival will get a Bottled Starlight and a PSD use of an apple-themed Lunaris made by Soul. The top player who has donated the most apples to the festival will also receive an apple-themed Xaoc designed by Soul.
Please note that the Apple Festival is officially replacing the double BP event as it produces a lot of BP.

Please pick a special SCC base sketch design.
This base will be available for BP for two months then retired.

All Things Custom!
*digs self out form under a pile of crystal checks*
Your (only slightly bedraggled) Customs Pony here to offer some helpful tips, advice, and clarifications. I was planning on putting all of this together nice and neat in my revised Customs Guidelines, but since I've gotten at least two PM's on the same topic, I'll offer it up now, sans frills. You'll have to excuse the less than perfect wording and lack of pretty pictures. :c
All previous Crystal Checks are honoured. This has always been the case (since day one), and remains the case. Doesn't matter if I think your pet is the most Silver thing since sliced bread, if Skitty said it was Bronze, it's Bronze, it'll pass for Bronze from now until forever. If I kick something in error, just toss me a PM with a link to the crystal check, if you didn't get one of those PM me anyways and we'll see what we can do about it.
On the topic of PM's - please feel free to contact me. You are not bothering me, you will not be ignored. On the off-chance you don't get a reply within 24 hours, please poke me again! The only thing I can't give you via PM is a crystal check because it jumps the queue. If it's a Raw or another time limited submission, that'd be okay - those get expedited regardless.
Here's my WIP of the expanded customs rules - I've been writing this for a while, but didn't think anyone would much care to see my rough draft given it's incomplete and only covers areas where previously we have had no posted guidelines. If you'd like to read it anyways, head on over ~myaah!

I'm here letting you know that there's a special item that will be hanging out in the advent calendar all day on Monday August 26 in Honor of Poedrem's (#126) birthday (which was actually on the 21st, but due to a warp in time, the hair got a little lost on its way to the Advent calendar)! So stop by, dress up, and rock out with this dangerously awesome new hairstyle and don't forget to wish Poe a happy (belated) birthday!
