PLBC/PMBC Rules and Changes


Goto News Post


Please be sure to look at the new artists on the PMBC article and PLBC article.

Some artists have left (noticeably Vulture and Youko) so please replace them in your Painted Pen within the next 48 hours (unless your breeding is already assigned).


There have been rules established for requesting fixes to PLBC and PMBC offspring. The outline of the rules has been placed on each of the articles. Fixes fall into three categories: some fixes are guaranteed upon request, some are conditional on whether admin agree with your claim, and some are dependent entirely on whether the artist wishes to make the fix.

Note that you are always welcome to tweak your babies and submit them for overlay if you please, as long as they are not completely revamped.


From this point forward, Painted Golds will yield an additional $2.50 artist pay per offspring in the breeding. This means that rare offspring will be paid higher, and if you want, you can attach a Painted Gold to a regular breeding to tip your artist.


Please observe the new "prompt limits" listed on the PMBC and PLBC's reference page:

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.

That is all for changes. Any questions, feel free to ask!

Kaz and Shoe Customs, ho!


Goto News Post

I'm working my way through the huge pile of metals made for Kaz & Shoe's birthday (1,000+ you folks! Well done!) A few of them don't quite meet the requirements for metals though, so if that's happened to one of your gifts, you'll be seeing a blank Ryba or Gael and a pet profile message from me, saying what the problem was. Kaz & Shoe submissions don't play nice with the refund system, so this was the best way I could figure out how to fix them.

Yes, you can keep the blank if you prefer that over trying to fix the custom pet - Otherwise I'll overlay the fixed image onto the blank if you that gets sent my way.

Don't forget to get those Painted Artist applications in!

Art Gallery


Goto News Post

Art Gallery


The art gallery has been judged!
The theme was Friday the 13th and we received many entries dedicated to black cats and spooky nights!

Here are our featured winners:


They won:



The current theme is Pets as NPCs!
Your task is to take any Aywas pet (or multiples) and re-imagine them as a new Aywas NPC! You can use any medium that you like, just be sure that your name/ID is included on your submission. It's also helpful if you include an image or the name of the original pet you are transforming (this does not count as part of your entry, it's just for clarity).
Official Aywas stock is not permitted for this theme.

Good luck!

Also be sure to check out the news post below this! :3

Genus and Species Glitches


Goto News Post

Pet could not be found. If you believe this pet exists, please ensure the pet is idle.

Have you ever received this error? If so, you're not alone!
The good news? I can fix this up for you and have created a new stickied thread in Glitches and Issues for precisely this problem:
Pet Status Fix - "Please ensure the pet is idle."
Please read the OP in its entirety before posting, as this thread is geared toward a very specific issue. :3


While I'm here, I also wanted to put in a reminder regarding the Genus & Species Errors thread (and the associated Knowledge Base article, which I'm working on expanding). I've had a recent influx of questions about this, so I wanted to make sure everyone is aware that we can definitely fix your custom Melo that thinks it's a Gael! If you've seen silver pets listed as a site genus, this is the place where that transformation happens as well.


Similarly, I've broadened the Official Site Pet Errors thread to include any and all Aywapedia errors. If you notice a site pet with an image problem, description typo, etc., this is where to go to report it! (But please be sure to read the list of known issues before reporting something we already have on our radar. :3)


Finally, I've also been working on cleaning up the Pet Genus Guidebook. We know that this page is pretty darn long and could stand to be more informative, so we will be working on a redesign to make it more user friendly. This won't come right away, but I did want you to know it's something we plan to improve on!

Cart of Geodes Glitch

Site Update

Goto News Post


If you were like me and opened your Cart of Geodes today to find one Geode (or no Geodes at all?), rest assured that this is a glitch. Slash is aware of it and is looking into it with one of our programmers.

Our apologies for the inconvenience! ;~;
We will let you know as soon as we have an update!
