New feature! Pets

Posted 12 hours ago :: Last edited 12 hours ago by Handhelld

We're happy to announce that familiars have left the item catagory and become their own catagory, PETS!

You've probably noticed that large "Pets" box sitting empty on your profile for some time now, but this section will be empty no longer!
All familiars have been turned into box items that you can open from your inventory to move them to the pets catagory. We ask that if you own any familiars, you do so ASAP! If you have any familiars attached to ranebopets, you will have to remove them from your pet and then add them back after converting them.

This update will not change how familiars work in the group, simply make it easier to organise them and attach them to ranebopets.

Important Rules & Limits update

Posted 1 week ago :: Last edited 1 week ago by tessary

Hello! We've introduced some new rules to keep the game balanced. These have all been added to the Scoring & Standards guide and will remain there for your reference, but here is a rundown on what they are. If you have questions, feel free to ask below!

  1. Upper character limit for submissions
  2. Doodlepages submission Limits
  3. New Thumbnail rule
  4. New Character Definition Rule


1.Upper character limit for submissions

The scorable character limit for ANY submission is now maximum 50 characters (prompts, general art, background art, doodle pages, etc) "Characters" includes ranebopets, familiars, etc. Scorable meaning the first 50 characters count for currency, but the 51st character and above in a submission does not count for TC.

Reason: Sometimes members submit large pieces with characters that are too numerous to reasonably count. We've introduced this limit to keep it reasonable for processing purposes and to reduce mistake TC given.

 

2. Doodlepage submission limits
A doodle page is defined as a page of many drawings of characters with no background. (“characters” includes grown raneopets, hatchlings, and familiars) You can claim currency on up to 2 character doodlepages per month. If the page has over 10 characters, You must still provide a 2nd version of the doodlepage which is numbered for easier counting. The kinds of doodlepages are:

  • Same-character doodlepage | up to 20 characters each page. Same-character is a page of drawings with all same characters or many repeating characters with over 2+ repeats each.
  • Different-character doodlepage | up to 50 characters per page. A page of drawings that is mostly different characters with few repeat characters.

If you are someone that enjoys making massive doodle pages, you can still make them! However, there is a limit to how much TC you can earn on them per month.
Reason: We want to limit massive tc farming per user using character drawings - we still allow it to the limits above but we wanted to make sure there is a monthly cap. There are currently no limits on prompt submissions or general art with backgrounds, so long as the backgrounds are not recycled.


3. New thumbnail rules

Thumbnails are NOT the sketch of your drawing! If you submit just the pieces' sketch it will be rejected. In order for something to count as a thumbnail.....

  • If you're claiming thumbnail bonus, you must submit at least 2 different thumbnails with a piece. Thumbnails are for exploring options for your piece before you start, so you must have at least 2.
  • It must have a border of any shape. Rectangle, square, circle, a loose shape, etc.
  • It must have background elements.

Reason: We have many users submitting their piece's sketch for thumbnail TC, but unfortunately this is not what thumbnails are so we are rejecting a lot. We're hoping these rules can make clearer what a thumbnail is and is not.

 

4. New Character Definition/Abstraction rule
Character art being claimed for currency (including within doodle pages) must be well-defined and cannot be overly vague, loose, or abstract versions of themselves.

The example below is just a general guide to communicate the concept. Columns 1-3 in the example would generally count for currency, with 3 being the limit, but 4 would not count.

Character abstraction is a sliding scale and if we're stuck, we compare your submission to your other pieces of artwork to decide if it counts. Ultimately it comes down to the moderator's discression, the artist's work, and the context of the submission.

Reason: We've had a number of submissions with character drawings in them that we feel are too abstract to count as a fullbody character, so introduced this rule/definition.

Prompts that accept writing, now require 800 words as a minimum, with the exception of Multi-Part prompts like dragoon discovery and affinity prompts.

Additionally, the cookery writing prompt has been removed and replaced with the "Best baker" challenge prompt! Check it out here!

If you would like to volunteer your ranebopets to be paired with for the breeding event, Comment below with a link to your ranebopets' ML entries! No hatchlings, and you can only volunteer rpets YOU own!

This does not give you a free baby. It just means someone can choose your pet to pair with theirs if they are getting a breed slot. The offspring produced will take inspiration & traits from the two parents involved in the breeding.
