Tier Prizes

These prizes are awarded according to the average points scored for all teams. They are added onto the above prizes, if won. They also stack, so Tier 1 gets Tier 2, 3, and 4 prizes as well (with the exception of SP -- you only get the SP for your highest tier).

Tier 1

2 Standard Deviations above Average

Tier 2

1 Standard Deviation above Average

Tier 3


Tier 4

One Standard Deviation below Average

Effort Prizes

The new Effort Prizes give a whole new dimension to the Scavenger Hunt game. You can choose to focus your efforts on turning out excellent quality task results instead of focusing on completing as many as possible.

An Effort Prize can be won by a single team member for their effort in creating an excellent task result.

Nominations to the Effort Prize category go here.
You can discuss the Effort Prize category here.

One prize will be awarded to each single winner. The prize rewarded depends on the entry. Prizes will not be awarded more than once. This is the prize pot:

Xaoc Custom
Full Litter of Hybrids (includes Breeding Coin)
Choose Your BC Site Artist
Breedable Voucher
500 GP
Alt Hybrid Voucher
Game Master status
Big Gaming System of Choice (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii) US ONLY
Little Gaming System of Choice (PSP, 3DS) US ONLY
Video Game of Choice ($50 value or less)
$100 Amazon giftcard


Last but not least, the flux has an alternate lineart. This lineart has no restrictions, so you may upload one with any Platinum Claw or Flux Voucher.

Scavenger Hunt July 2011


Goto News Post

Scavenger Hunt July 2011

The time is drawing nearer... are you ready to tackle Scav?

Establish your team base here!

What is Scavenger Hunt?

Scavenger Hunt is a game occurring in January and July that involves working together with a team of other users to win massive prizes. A list involving tasks will be posted on midnight of the day the Scavenger Hunt game begins, and includes such things as getting high scores in games, drawing, writing, creating real life crafts, and doing strange tasks for points.

The prize list will be posted when Scavenger Hunt is closer to beginning.

Scavenger Hunt begins Midnight, July 8th.

Scavenger Hunt ends Midnight, July 15th

The list will be 300 questions long.

Because I can't think of 500 questions. That makes it easier for you!

Scavenger Hunt Rules

1. Teams can consist of twenty or less players.
2. Each player, inactive or not, on an account counts toward a slot.
3. Staff will not hash out prize disputes.
4. Team leader has the power to kick any player off their team.
5. Teams are responsible for the action of all team players.
6. Unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated in any form. Respect your team members, other teams, and the event.
7. Cheating will result in the entire team being disqualified without any prize.
8. Screenshot proofs must be dated with time and date. No exceptions this year.
9. Photo proofs must include a piece of paper in the shot that has the team name. No exceptions, and no photoshopping in text.
10. Art proof only requires the final image and the team's name on it.
11. Writing proof only requires the final draft and a word count. Feel free to link a Google Document in your proof slot if the result is too long.
12. Judges can assign full, partial, or no points based on the task proof submitted. Quality of the submission is not taken into account as long as it follows all the task's requirements. However, recall that the Art Gallery will award prizes to the coolest Scavenger Hunt entries that are submitted to it.
13. Tasks cannot be combined this year. Every task must be done uniquely.
14. Tasks must be followed to the letter. If you have a question about a task, use the brand new Scav Rules Forum, but keep in mind that tasks will NOT be twisted or given exceptions, so don't ask questions like that.
15. Off-site Scavenger Hunt forums are not allowed this year - please use your team's private forum.
16. The list/proof system is automated this year, so you must get your entries in by the deadline, or you'll be locked out.
17. Please keep all non-private Scavenger Hunt related discussion on the Scavenger Hunt Chat board, where you can talk to other teams' members and discuss Scav..

Get prepared for Scavenger Hunt! Establish your team, accept your team members, plan ahead, and enjoy your private team boards and the automated list-submission system!

Various other things - like Trivia, Raffle Crystal, and the Monthly Customs will be posted tomorrow to give this news post time to shiiiiiine.

That last word might be invisible. xD

These four special pets have been released into the Bridge area of Explore for 24 hours only. Enjoy the fireworks!

Don't point the fireworks at your face when you light them - just a suggestion!

Cirrus - Cooking!


Goto News Post

Remember when I mentioned a new prize was coming for Cooking?


The Cirrus is a pet that can only be obtained through Cooking. Every 50 levels, Chaos will give you an additional prize - you'll either be able to select one of the colorations and take it home with you, or he'll offer you this item:

Bottled Elemental Storm
This is the custom-creating item for the Cirrus. It allows up to 50% edits.

Vampires vs. Zombies

New Game

Goto News Post

Vampires vs. Zombies

All right zombies, those sparkly vampires won the last game, and we can't let that happen again, right? Sparklepires don't deserve to win. |:

*agitated twitch* I don't sparkle!

I sparkle... when I roll in glitter. C: Which I do often. But listen up, vampires! We won last time - because we're superior, as you know, no matter what those smelly zombies think - and we need to defend our title. You're with me, right?!

*facepalm* You two are taking this way too seriously.

Stinky? Shut up, sparklepire. |: Come on, guys, join the side of the zombies! We're awesome!

Join the winning side. ;) We won last time and we're going to win this time!! Vampires RULE!

Set your allegiance - are you a vampire or a zombie?

The game begins at midnight!! Good luck!

Chat Threads
Vampire Chat - Vampires only!!
Zombie Chat - No sparklepires allowed!!

Saturday Explore Pets


Goto News Post

Saturday Explore pets, not-from-concentrate!

Up this coming week is one of my favourite sets - the Maki, Oske and Chromo! Being a huge Oske fan makes me a little biased, I guess. *hangs head* If you want to make the Cap'n happy (and earn yourself 10 GP per accepted colouration in the process) then head on over to the Pet Colourations forum, pick up the PSDs and get scribbling!

Now grab your Nets and a copy of the Aywapedia and go go go. :D

We currently have a Melo, Quetzal, and Kaz real life plush... and a year after they were made, we're ready for three more. :)

Please pick three of the below:

Which pet do you want to see made into a plush? (pick 3)

These choices were based on a thread I posted asking for three nominations, and these were the top nominations by sixty voters.
