.:Frequently Asked Questions (Breeding System):.

Postby Omnisearch » 11/28/2014 12:37 AM

[ Frequently Asked Questions (Breeding System) ]

* How can I start a breeding room?
In order to start breeding, simply Start a New Topic in the Breeding Area subforum corresponding to your pet's species. Label your room in a way that lets the Staff know what you're breeding, who you're breeding, and with whom you're breeding.

* How do I breed Diosols, if they do not follow the slot system?
Diosols are handled entirely by Baal. As a result, they are restricted and can only breed if you have the necessary items to start a room with them. In order to breed them, you must first purchase a Breeder Boost v1 or a Breeder Boost v2 in the Metamorphose Medical Clinic, which allows you to start a room for Diosols.

* What are Breeding Keys? Where can I get them?
Breeding Keys are from an old breeding system. For a fixed price, you could buy a key that allowed you to breed the pet of that species for a litter. While breeding keys are still in the system and are still usable, they are no longer the main breeding items, considering the slots took their place.

However, breeding keys prevent you from using one of your slots during a month, and can even be used even if you have already used all two of your breeding slots. They can be used at any time, and with anybody.

Breeding keys can no longer be bought, but they will be available as gifts, raffle/contest prizes, and through other such means. Users may also exchange or sell the keys that they own.

* Can we trade/sell/exchange slots the same way we could with Breeding Keys?
You absolutely cannot sell, exchange or trade slots. This system was implemented to free users of the restrictions and market of breeding keys, which were much too rare and much too expensive on the user market.

We judge that two breeding slots pet user is plenty for a single month.

Breeding Keys, however, may still be traded and exchanged for other items.

* Can we split the cost of a breeding room?
The initiator pays the full fee in order to make it easier on staff to record.

However, if breeders desire to split the fee, the participant can simply send half of the key price over to the initiator.

You may work out fee splitting and covering any way you like. However, for simplicity's sake on our side, the initiator will always pay the full price upon the start of the breeding room.

* Can we buy more slots if we run out for a month?
That is not an option. Once you have used up your three slots, the only option you have would be to use a breeding key, if you have one. Otherwise, you will need to wait until the month has rolled over; and remember that breeding slots do not carry over from one month to the next.

* What happens when I start a room at the end of the month and do not finish it within that same month?
The slot will always count for the month when you started the room. Considering the breeding fee is collected at that time, and since there is no telling when a room will be completed, it would become chaotic to record them otherwise. If you started a room at the end of a month, the slot will be taken from that same month, regardless of when you finish the room.

* I do not like the random factor/results of the breeding season. How can I avoid them?
We try to offer breeding seasons that offer nice and special results, but we understand that not everyone will enjoy getting Chaos babies, or getting wildcard Kuhna kits when they're breeding for one specific species. If you absolutely do not want your litter to be affected by breeding seasons, you can always use a Charcoal Tonic in order to negate the season. Using this potion will guarantee that your litter will be normal.

* Can we suggest breeding seasons/breeding mutations/breeding feature/quirks?
The Staff is always open to new suggestions; that goes for any feature, really. While we cannot guarantee that we will use your suggestions, we do always read over what you all suggest to us.

If our partner uses a key, do we still need to use up one of our own breeding slots?

Nope. c: The Key is exactly for that purpose~ It's basically a pass, on both sides, for a rainy day.

I just finally read through the breeding reform (yay for this) and was left with a question. Maybe the answer is obvious and I just overlooked it, but... let's say I only have my variable slot left for a month. Does that mean that I cannot self-breed with this slot as a self-breeding uses both a participation and an initiative slot and I only have a single variable slot and not two?



I know my dreams are made of you
Of you and only for you
Your ocean pulls me under
Your voice tears me asunder
Love me before the last petal falls






However cold the wind and rain
I'll be there to ease your pain
However cruel the mirrors of sin
Remember beauty is found within

Yes. Self breeding, simply put, requires two of your slots. You can pick and chose what particular slots you want to use for it, but at the end of the day you can only complete one self breeding per month.


You thought you had all control
That I would never let you go

But I knew the lines, saw through your lies
Revenge is oh so sweet sometimes
I don't know where to go from here
You never wondered how it feels
When I listen to the voice inside
If I free my mind, let the stars come out

I think I've seen this question elsewhere, but I can't remember the answer. ^^; What if both users have a baby they want from a pairing? Is it one palette potion per breeding, period? Or one per user in the breeding?

Oh, turn the lights turn the lights down low
Yeah, now I'm feeling you breathing slow, oh
'Cause, baby, we're just reckless kids
Trying to find an island in the flood
Oh, turn the lights, turn the lights down low
And I will give you everything baby
But can you feel this energy? Take it
You can have the best of me baby
And I will give you anything
Can you feel this energy? Take it
You can have the best of me baby

The answer to this is the the Marketplace FAQ.

Can I use multiple Palette Potions in one breeding?
       Each user may only use one Palette Potion. If two users are breeding together, they can use a total of 2 Palette Potions in a breeding.

I'm totally new to the site, so I was just wondering.  So like, I can just start a thread for breeding?  Just go and do it if I have the KS?  Also, I want to know if I could breed my hydrokuhna and arkuhna, I still don't understand like, who is restricted to who.





I'm not that cool.
I'm really not great.
You suckers found out just a little too late.
You thought I'd be good,
You thought I might rock.
But your friends were right,
Cuz I really suck.

Yep, you just start the room in the subforum for the appropriate species. So, to breed two Kuhna, you go to the Kuhna Breedings subforum and just start a thread. The KS will be deducted from you by a mod, and they'll also list your slot/s for the month as used.

And yes, you can breed a Hydrokuhna and an Arkuhna. :D "Restrictions" are something users set, and most Kuhnas don't have them. Certain breedable pets, mostly Lucain, have very, very large family lines. They were bred many times, and then their offspring were bred many times, so they have LOTS of relatives. Certain Lucain in these big lines were given restrictions by their owners on the number of times they could breed. They chose to do this to prevent these lines from getting too big and to help prevent accidental incest. (Though I should note, these is no rule against breeding related pets. It's more of a personal, informal thing.) Pets adopted directly from the site will NEVER have restrictions. There are only three ways to get a pet with breeding restrictions:

1. If you purchase a pet with restrictions from someone else. They HAVE to tell you the restrictions when they sell them to you. "By the way, this pet can only breed three times."
2. If you breed with a pet with restrictions. "By the way, the offspring of this pet can only breed twice." Again, they HAVE to tell you this when you breed with them.
3. If you yourself choose to place a restriction on your pets. "I have decided that this pet's offspring can only breed three times."

Restrictions are a thing that were very much in vogue once but have fallen out of favor somewhat. It used to be that breedings were very rare and had to be completed very quickly, so it was very important that people were able to find pairings fast. When breedings were so rare, the breeding pool was a lot smaller, so running into relatives was a very real concern people had. However, when the system opened up, more genes got into the gene pool, so it wasn't as claustrophobic. However, old restrictions STILL have to be respected, so it's still something the rules account for.

These lofty thoughts are killing me
Preoccupied by what I could be
I get so high on my ideas
Don't call me down
But you can meet me where I land.

I
Left the bay
In pursuit
Of lucid dreams
Now I
Drive for days
To make my way back to those old familiar places

Do we no longer earn KS for rping in the breeding? I just want to know since I didn't earn any when rping there recently.

My whole existence is flawed
You get me closer to god
You can have my isolation, you can have the hate that it brings
You can have my absence of faith, you can have my everything
Help me tear down my reason, help me it's your sex I can smell
Help me you make me perfect, help me become somebody else

Through every forest, above the trees
Within my stomach, scraped off my knees
I drink the honey inside your hive
You are the reason I stay alive

Nope, that feature was taken away. No worries there!

I wait to surface
Above these bellowed growls
To sweep the shallows of utopia
I am the anchor
And the rope around your feet
In a river deep I hold you down
Ive come to stage your abdication
Im the creation of your sins
Embrace me
