.:A New Service[1/8]:.

Postby Kyrit » 10/12/2014 4:16 PM

When a user first joins, getting a breedable pet can be hard. The customs cost money, and often the bred ones cost a large sum of KS. Even for an older member, unless they have money to spend it can be hard. Customs also aren't always open, so even if one has the money the wait for customs to be available can be hard.

Vance has come to everyone's aid though and is offering a few of his personal breedables for users to rent out for breedings. He does have criteria that you must fall under though, as his services aren't for those that have dozens of breedables on hand already. If you'd like to check out what Vance is offering and see if just maybe you fall under those criteria, head over to his rental listing.

If we already have more than four of a breedable, but still want to breed with one of the rentals, is it okay to ask around to see if anyone who has less than four of the breedables wants to rent said breedable and do a breeding with us? I hope that made sense.

This is so cool! A great way for new breeders to get into it and help out people who don't have the money or KS for pets of their own. Plus the idea that the pets will be distributed eventually is awesome.

It's fine for you to do a breeding with someone that is renting one if you have more than 4 of that particular breeding, yes. You cannot be the one renting the pet though. Since it would be the choice of the one renting the pet to breed with you there is nothing wrong with it. Now if you had a thread that basically said you'd pay someone to rent the pet/pay to have the offspring, yes I'd have a problem with it and would go add a rule against it since this is first and foremost a service to aid those that don't have many breedables.

Also, I'm guessing the "four breedables" rule doens't include the free site Kuhnas, right?

Yeah. Excluding the free breedables, since they don't go on record anywhere. All anyone would have to do is just delete those Kuhnas from their pen and act like they didn't have them anyways (again, no records of free pets).

I'm just popping in to say that I think that this is super, duper exciting, and a wonderful idea! Being kind of new to the site, it's been a little hard to navigate how breeding and customs work, and having the opportunity to use these adorable pets is super nice. Thanks so much ;v; (Also those Soveris are gorgeous aaaaaaah!!)

Ahhh! So cool! I really like this service, and I LOVE the designs for the rentables! Hee hee... I'll have to spring on those rentable Soveris before I have too many myself! X3

Just wanted to say that I find this feature to be totally amazing! I think it will definitely help out newer users or those otherwise unable to get breedables. (And, hot dang, some of them are super attractive~) I especially like the idea that the pets will eventually be given owners, too, afterward. <3

As I was typing this, I began to wonder, does the rule about having to own a breedable of a certain type (or have proof of a rental contract) still apply in breeding key raffles, then? I'm guessing the person would just note that they plan to use one of these pets, since contracts for them aren't made before obtaining a key? (This doesn't apply to me, but I figured it would be good to know.)

Yeah. The next time there is a raffle there will be an edit to the raffle rules that basically say to let us know if you plan on renting from Vance or if you have a rental lined up from a user.

There has been a tiny update to Vance's rental listing. Since Kuhnas are easy to get, we have bumped up the limit for those. I've also added a note in there that the free Kuhnas don't count toward your count.
