June is Alzheimer's and brain awareness month, and this lovely wearable blossom is brought to you by Nemesis Valkyrie (#476) to help you go purple with Alzheimer's Association. Follow the link for information about Alzheimer's and dementia, issues that are hitting more families every year.

The item will be in Trash for Treasure for the remainder of the month, and will be removed July 1st.



Spreading the love is Prof Jamew (#2712) who wants to share this little imp fauna with everyone in celebration of their birthday tomorrow!

Trash for Treasure will be keeping these little huggers around for you until July 3rd!

Update on Teo Auctions

Site Update

Goto News Post



The Teo Auctions are going well! Be sure to get your bid in, because some of the Teos will be ending soon. A majority of the artists have been fronted their pay and now we're just waiting for reimbursement from the auctions to be back in a good position re: paying bills.

Thank you to everyone who's been bidding or donating Teos to the auction!

Please note that some of the newer Teos are not "base auctions" and are actual colorations. Players have been donating actual colorations to the auctions, while there are some who have donated some bases. The original auction Teos are guaranteed as base auctions.




Speaking of Teos, a new set of Pride Teos are being commissioned to the MDT artists, so you can see your identity or orientation colored by a different person with a different design.

Wait, how are you going to claim one if they're new and you already picked one?

Oh, the Premium Item will be reset again on the 14th so you can get a second Pride Candle.

If you colored one of these awesome pets, please contact Kyu (#1010) for your payment!
Make sure to include your PayPal address if you are opting for the USD option.
We will also be collecting pet PSDs directly from the thread, so you no longer have to send them in. However, please make sure you keep the links active for two weeks (at least until mid-June) so we have time to snag 'em for science

Looking to quench your thirst and gamble at the same time? Then the Essence of June 2015 is right up your alley!

The premium monthly item is the Pride Candle. This is a pretty rad item, so be sure to check out the full details on it here!

While we're at this point in the update, I want to pause for a friendly reminder and take a moment to remind everyone to always do their homework before making any sort of trade/sale deal. Premium Items are, in general, exclusive items typically released only once or very sparingly. While the value of these items fluctuates depending on what exactly the item is and the degree to which it is limited, it never hurts to do some research to find an average going price for what you're selling/buying. c:
Happy trading!

Have a party, it's your birthday!

A monthly update from behind the scenes.

There are a lot of wonderful things happening in June! To recap some of the awesomeness that has already begun and some still to come:
- The month-long Aywas Pride Event!
- Sevryns and their pretty eggs
- Miokits and fossils!
- There will also be a lot of less flashy but useful updates and fixes on the way this month. These are the sorts of things that require me to borrow Eve's whips.
- But seriously, we're drowning in some spectacular art already!

Cheers to a great month ahead!

Who's been looking forward to the new bases for the Jeweled items?


Jeweled Rare Crystal

First, there's a brand new Jeweled Crystal being added to the family! Now you will be able to make a monthly rare base. They cost $15.00 and are available in the USD Shop.



This month, our artist is Edina, and she made you a Lunaris!


Jeweled Crystal






Jeweled Hybrid Crystal




A couple of other updates!



The Sevryns are waiting for their items to be coded, and are second in line for completion after the big change we mentioned a couple days ago. The change requires coding a whole new feature!

Have a happy June!

The art gallery has been judged!
The theme was Under the Water* and we received such gorgeous entries that made me jealous of everything living under the sea! (And my local weather certainly tried to dump an ocean on us yesterday.)

Here are our featured winners:

Congratulations!

The current theme is Photography!
For this theme you can either do actual photography--as long as it is Aywas related in some way--or you can use a digital canvas to illustrate the theme.
Official Aywas stock is not permitted for this theme.

Good luck!

Note: New themes will be announced this Sunday, so if you have any ideas, please share them here!

My weekend got rained out by storms and power outages, how was yours?

magic_essenceofmay2015.png

If you still need to grab any May pets from the BP or GP shops, you have a little bit of extra time since my half of the big June monthly post will be made tomorrow evening. Psst. Don't worry, I won't tell the little critters that you forgot about them, just hurry up!

The seasonal spring shop should be opening tomorrow, and will be open for a full week.
Thanks for your patience with our behind-the-scenes hurdles. <3

clothing_dyesplatter.png

Have you dyed up all of the pet creations you want from the Easter Painter? We'll leave these creatable through June 2nd at 11:59 p.m., so make sure you pick up all of your projects in time! After this closes up shop, we'll be doing seven raffles--one for each dye color. If you have any suggestions for items to raffle off that match up with a dye color, let me know in the comments below!

Pride Event 2015

Site Update

Goto News Post


Aywas is rainbow for the Pride Event!

The Pride Event is a month long celebration of marginalized orientations, gender identities, and intersex (known as MOGAI or LGBT). Because this is a month long event, you should expect to see updates each week on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and finally on the 30th!


Your premium item for this month is the Pride Candle, which will allow you to select one of many semi-custom Pride Teos. A semi-custom is halfway between a site pet and a custom, like the Skelly Quetzal obtained by buying an Aywas plush.

A reference guide for what each Teo represents is located here for you.



If you've ever wanted a Teo, now's the time to get one! They may not be super-duper unique in the end, but they're Teos and they won't be released outside this event!





Tomorrow, June 2nd, be sure to stop by the Advent Calendar and pick up a Pride Rose. This will allow you to upload one of the Pride Dragons, a special SCC made specifically for this event!



You may upload any design posted to the Reference Guide for Pride Dragons, or you may download the pet's PSD and design your own dragon.

Pride Roses will lose their "power" on July 1st, so be sure to get your dragon colored sometime during this month!





Xaoc Lovers! There's a Xaoc Blind Auction happening in the Events forum. If you feel like donating to your favorite LGBT charity and taking a shot at winning a Xaoc designed by Syncline, be sure to read the thread to find out how to participate.




Our ability to release content for you on the 7th, 14th, and 30th will be determined by how much you participate in the Pride Contests! Be sure to stop by them and contribute whatever you can. There are great prizes!

Pride Pets!
Pride HA Wearable Items!
Pride Main Contest!
Pride Writing Contest!
Pride Items!


If you would like to have your orientation or gender identity added to the Pride Teos or Pride Dragons, post some information and the flag for it up on their respective threads and we'll add them as we're able to.

Have a great Pride Month, and look forward to the next Pride Update on the 7th! Oh yeah, and be sure to thank this event's co-sponsor, Fannish, for all of her hard work in helping me make this event for all of you!

New Genus -- Miokit

Site Update

Goto News Post



A new genus has just been released!



Say hello to the Miokit! This is a rare prehistoric pet that can only be obtained through the Fossil Collection feature. If you successfully fetch a fossil, there will be a small chance that you stumble upon the custom maker for this pet, the Prehistoric Portal. Statistically, if you max out your fossil collection activities each day, you should get one roughly every ten days.



Interested in seeing additional bases for the Prehistoric Portal? That's where you come in! There are four other pets waiting to come through the portal, but they require your effort first before they show up.

When the players submit 100 Edited Miokit Bases to the Edit Repository, then the next base -- a velociraptor -- will be available for the custom maker. Are you up for contributing and getting that raptor out in time for the new Jurassic Park movie?

Enjoy!

(PS: Some of you were able to obtain the custom making item while I was coding it and it was at a 100% drop rate. Those have been removed for obvious reasons.)
