The trading post now has a search for pets.



Items can be searched in the trading post by using the Quick Search at the top of the website - type in your desired item and then click the trading post link.



Admins now have the ability to put a refund reason into a breeding refund. Now you don't have to read any more minds ;)



We also now have the ability to refund incompatible breeding add-ons, so if we notice a breeding with an incompatible add-on, we can kick it back into your inventory, so it is not wasted.



Derp Breeding Coin predict uploads are re-enabled.



Last but not least, all pet genuses now have an "item event skill" in adventure (fly, swim, dig, smash).

Random Items

Site Update

Goto News Post



One of the other admins suggested bringing back the Random Item Event! For the next 24 hours, every $5 spent in GP (or USD Shop) will result in a manually sent, admin-selected random item bonus.

These items are usually pretty interesting, sometimes awesome... perhaps you'll get lucky?

Share which random item you got here!

This ends at 6:00 PM Aywas Time January 19, 2015.

Note: Transaction amounts cannot be combined, that would make this impossible to do - it is only each $5 PER transaction. EG: $16.99 = 3 bonus items.

Also, just a quick FYI -- the Essence of January 2015 item image has been replaced with the glass potion/thermos above. (If it still looks like a bowl of stew to you, do a hard refresh.) We're keeping our monthly essences in potion form as always, but if you liked the shiny red bowl, not to worry! You'll see it reappear as a food item soon. :)

Art Usage Reminder

Site Update

Goto News Post



It would benefit our community to go over a couple of art courtesy guidelines:

- Please don't provide other people's customs (without their permission) as examples for commissions, GCC requests, breedings, etc. If you are an artist and shown a custom as an example and don't see that custom in your commissioner's lair, ask the commissioner for proof that the owner permitted it as an example.

- Please don't provide specific images or artwork you do not own (without permission) as examples for commissions, GCC requests, breedings, etc. Using these as "inspiration" is becoming an issue because artists are being encouraged to copy these images. Instead, give the artist some description of your idea, keywords to look up on google, provide your own drawings, or stock images that have the appropriate permissions.

- You can easily generate a color palette from an image you like by using this site so providing an image for a color palette should not be necessary. This site also provides palettes for your use.

- Do not save custom images and upload them to outside websites if you don't own the custom in question on your account, or you are not the artist of the custom in question. This is becoming a problem for custom owners and artists who don't like seeing their work uploaded to Dropboxes or image hosting sites by people they either do not know, or do not want to "save" their customs or display them.


Showing courtesy to your fellow user and artist is important when it comes to a community like this running smoothly, so please keep these guidelines in mind for the future.

We're in need of a few more entries for our Ice/Snow Sculpture theme this week, so you have until January 12th at 11:59 p.m. to get any last-minute submissions in! Your task is to create an Aywas-related "sculpture" using ice or snow, but you can also achieve this with other materials that still maintain a snowy/icy look (e.g. cotton balls). Official Aywas Stock is not permitted, but you can submit digital/traditional art for this theme as well.

Good luck!

In the meantime...

Some new themes have also been added!

January 11th - January 17th: Weather
January 18th - January 24th: Dosk and/or Condyl*
January 25th - January 31st: Puzzles
February 1st - February 7th: Trinket Pets*
February 8th - February 14th: Valentine's Day*
February 15th - February 21st: Chinese New Year


If you want to get a head start on the Weather theme, you may! This is a very broad theme, so you can use any medium you like, just keep it Aywas-related in some way as always. Official Aywas Stock is not permitted for this one.

Have fun!
