Gathering Time Status


Hello all!
Just popping in formally to say things have not utterly quiet behind the scenes… but that we simply need ALL our staff people functioning at 110% before we can launch into breeding season. (I am simply not a brave enough person to do it alone! ) Epic Quest hasn’t been forgotten either, and will join a few other activities taking place along with the Gathering Time.

This year’s Gathering Time will run a little differently – a little slower, perhaps, but also longer, which will hopefully allow more opportunities for new unicorns babies! Pricing will run between 500K-$15 at random intervals… so breeding will be a mix up of slot claiming/lottery style slots provided by each available colourist. Of course, if you want to omit all that fuss entirely – there’s always Ulysses slots available via the RP

On that note, world-building for Elvin Empire needs to begin in earnest as we near RP3; I have Lady E’s original notes on the subject as the starting point, but as she’s unable to do more than fly-bys in Kalidore these days, a new team will be assembled to map out this project. So if you are at all interested in World-Building Kalidore & Beyond, please drop me a line! And there are always perks for working behind the scenes

I think that’s it!

Kalidore & Co will be making an appearance at Breyerfest again this year too, so if you are wandering down that way – be sure to come find us! More details to follow closer to the date

*snoogles everyone soundly and makes a big bowl of chicken soup for all our sick staffers*

Last Events of current Contesting Thread

Hello everyone!

We hit a few stumbling blocks in the last weeks, culminating with Whimsy needing a whole new computer. (We should know by the end of the week if there was any info loss, but things look very, very good – knock wood!) In the meantime, certing and any other activity that requires photoshop and/or the old harddrive are currently in a holding pattern until (hopefully!) next Monday at the latest.

In the meantime, a new contest is up – The Marvellous Masked Meso of Mystery!
This joins the Dream Unicorn contest which is still running in the forum

Also, the Griffon Stew Raffle is *finally* open – so feel free to dig in!

Foal Naming & Other Goodies


Hello Everyone! We’re playing catch-up this thread to make sure we have everything ready for our annual breeding season later this summer. That means all unnamed foals need to find names, and anything else we may have overlooked taken care of too. If you have anything outstanding, or think we’ve forgotten about something – please drop us a line!

Of course, there will be a smattering of Fun & Games too — including a naming contest for that cute little Mesokoros above! — so do check us out even if you don’t have anything to catch up on. We’re planning fun!

AND, with Breeding Season just around the corner, now’s the time to bank those RP posts if you want to try for an elusive Ulysses breeding slot. Our RP is making it’s final push to the end, so now is an exciting time to join in. All the info you need is in the thread – so see you there

5th Birthday Bash!

It’s our Birthday and we’re going to party hard, and we want all of you to join the fun!

There are going to be Games & Contests, Newbie Events, Special Auction pieces and SO much more –
you won’t want to miss any of it. And besides, who doesn’t love Birthdays?


“I don’t. I don’t love birfdays at all. So there.”

Oh, right… something about a Griffon Breeding Season will be happening too, grumpy griffon chicks and all. There’s going to be something for everyone, so come on down and check it out!

See you all there!

Also, our Auctions are ending tonight @ 02:00! There was some confusion about the end date as the wrong contest was accidentally updated, so I’m here to assure it IS definitely happening tonight (don’t worry guys, I wouldn’t make it end on a holiday!) Best of luck, all!

Plus as usual, more games & silliness in thread when people are around
