Hello everyone! We will be holding an Pet Trait Design contest for the 2021 Summer Festival! Please make sure to read the rules carefully!


1. Design a pet gene or mutation for only the following species: Aurleon, Draeyl, Ferrikki, Kelpari, Lighira, Luffox, Lunemara, Lupora, Morkko, Nephini, Ny'vene, Nytekrie, Puffadore, Qitari, Sylvorpa, Vulnyx, Zolnixi. After you are done designing your trait, come back to this thread and post the image in this thread. To get a blank pet image just go to the generator page and take the image from there. You can resize the image to the maximum size via the image url, the maximum size is 500.

2. You must draw the trait on the pet. If you feel that your drawing skills aren't great, then along with your drawing you can include a description to better help us envision your mutation. If you are unable to draw something, then I am sorry, there will be no exceptions.

3. You are allowed to be free with your creative process, so it is not necessary to make it Summer themed.

4. Please do not reserve posts. If you reserve a post I will delete your post.

5. Please do not Ping me with your submission. Please only Ping me if you have a question.

6. Before submitting your entry please make sure to scan the thread to see if someone else has done something similar. Try to make your entry unique and if someone has already done something that you were wanting to do...then I highly suggest you pick something different. If you feel someone has "copied" your design, do not say anything to that person - especially in this thread.

7. You may only submit ONE official entry for each species on the list. If you wish to submit more then you can send me a PM with drawings of your trait idea. However all PMed entries that are sent to me will not count for prizes. To clarify, an entry can encompass multiple Trait Slots. As an example, say your entry is a Butterfly set for a certain species. Your entry can include Butterfly Wings, Butterfly Antennae, Butterfly Armor, etc. Species are all different with their Trait Slots so we're looking more at design ideas and not strictly Trait Slot submissions.

8. The end date is June 6th, 2021 at 11:59 PM server, after that, there is no guarantee that we will see your entry and the thread will be locked once designs are picked.


I am very aware that it's typical to use google to search for ideas when designing things. However, it is extremely important that if someone happens to be referencing another person's artwork, it should not be possible to google it and find exactly what was used as a reference. Please make sure to change it enough and be creative enough that you're making it your own design. This is extremely important not just for ethical reasons but also for legal reasons when we're implementing something onto our site. Thank you! =)


All entries that are picked will have the trait created and the designers will receive a Mystical Essence of their choice as well a [Peerless Avatar Token]. Everyone that participates will also receive a participation prize that will include various Festival Supplies.

Don't comment on someone's entry unless you have something nice to say. If someone copies your entry then have faith in us that we will determine the correct winner. Please do not fight over entries, if I see anyone doing this in the thread then whoever is fighting will be disqualified.

All Participants
With valid submission

Prizes: [Fabled Seed Pouch] x1, [Premium Fertilizer] x2, [Box of Sculpting Supplies] x1, [Box of Sculpting Agents] x2, [Decorated Eggs] x500

Are we allowed to get a bit of inspiration from other games?

It depends on what you submit. As an obvious example, if you submitted Mickey Mouse Disney ears, we would not be able to use that.

A Qitari Design, the mane, tail and leg poofs inspired by Vanner horses and the ribbons/scarfs are sort of a dancer outfit for them.

Capes for the Vulnyx!

It would be a trait that belongs in the G2 with other mutations like the Jingle Bell Bow and the Jewled collar. My inspiration to make them were the capes for Lighira's and General Grievous from Star Wars and his fancy cape

Night Sky:
Meant to go along with the existing constellation runes. Could additionally add constellation markings.

Constellation version:

Intended as a set to make the Lupora fluffier with extra fur. Longer fur on paws, chest, chin, and back mane.
Paws/chin could be one mutation. Mane/chest can be another.

Another mutation set. One for the tail and one for the wings.
Intended to take more of the bird out of the dragonbirds and give them some more draconic, less feathery options.

Another mutation set. Scorpion tail and mane.
Meant to have a more fierce look.

Yet another mutation since it's all I have ideas for, lol.
Meant to give the Zolnixi fluffier ears and cheeks.

Trait set for Puffadore. Back speckle markings can be one trait. Paws and face can be another.

Binding Orbs:
Mutation for Ferrikki. Gives Ferrikki multiple tail orbs with colored decorative beads between them.
