No information in the import template should be vulgar or heavily offensive. Admins will always be on the side of caution but you are free to dispute the admin's opinion and request a second opinion.

**Certain kinds of language should not appear in any form in the import information. We understand this is a game about dragons, and even more so that we have special temperaments, but please be respectful and mature in filling out your information. Failure to follow rules for import info will result in your design being rejected until its fixed.

 

 

Step by step guide for design submission: 

 

After you design your dragon, you need to submit your design for staff approval before your dragon can join in on activities and events! How do you do this? 

 

 

Toggle Spoiler

On the page of the dragon you’ve designed, on the left sidebar, click the 'Submit Genotype Design'

 

It’ll take you to a separate page, click the 'Create Request' button. 
On this page, you’ll see five tabs: Status, Comment, Masterlist Image, Add Ons and Traits. 

 

**For this, follow the form from the NEW WORLD REGISTRATION. You MUST include the form in your submission, or your request will be cancelled and you will be asked to resubmit with the form. 

 


Status page:

This is the page you’ll submit or cancel your request. 

 
Comment page:

This is where you place your form from the Design Registration page. 

 
Masterlist Image:

This is where you add your photo and your thumbnail. 

 
Add Ons:

This is where you add all of your add ons (backgrounds, item kits, dye, design items etc). 

 
Traits:

This is where all of your dragon’s traits are located, you do nothing with this page, but you have to approve this page before you can submit your design. 

 
ALL of these tabs have to be approved or you won’t be able to submit your design for staff approval.

Step-By-Step Directions: 


  • Go to the 'Comments tab' and paste your form (you can remove any non applicable pieces of the form), make sure you list your free markings, items you’ve used, etc.
      • Once you add everything you need for the comments, click SAVE and proceed to the next tab. 
  • Go to the 'Masterlist Image tab', 'Choose File' and select your photo.
    • Turn OFF the image cropper and REUPLOAD the image under “Thumbnail Image”
    • Add the Artist/Designer in the correct places (if they’re members of the site, you do not have to include the URL, but make sure to use the correct username from the site). 
      • Once everything is added, click SAVE and proceed to the next tab. 
  • Go to the 'Add Ons tab', this is where you add all of your items you used for your design. You HAVE to include a background pack if you use a background that’s not already preset. If you do not include it, your submission will be cancelled and you will be asked to add it and resubmit it. 
    • Add your item kits, dragon’s tears, dye, breaths, nail polish, etc if you used any in the design. 
    • *DO NOT ADD ANY FAMILIARS TO THIS, if you do, the submission will EAT your familiars and will delete them from your hoard. 
      • Once you add everything you used, click SAVE and proceed to the next tab. 
  • Go to the 'Traits tab'. This tab, members are not allowed or able to alter. Double check all the information is correct.
      • Click SAVE. 

Check ALL tabs to make sure everything is added and correct and that none of the tabs have a red X next to them.

If everything is correct, go back to the STATUS tab and click 'SUBMIT DESIGN'. 

 

This submits the design to the Staff’s Design Queue. Please allow up to a week for the design staff to get to your request. 

 

If your design gets cancelled, you will receive comments from the staff on your design submission telling you why it was cancelled and what errors you need to correct before you resubmit. 

If your design is approved, congrats!! Your dragon can now roam freely around the lands.

How to Write a genotype and a Phenotype:

To write a genotype  you will write out the base coat followed by the markings. uu/oo/vv+common/uncommon/rare/veryrare/radiance-color code
 
To write a phenotype you first do the very rare marks, then rare, then any markings end in "ed" (uncommon first, then common), then color mods / melanistic, then the base coat, followed by common marks, uncommon marks, and lastly radiance.
 
 

------------------------------------

 

 

Tempers, health and breaths:

 

The Temperament of your dragon does not have to correlate with their personality! Temperaments only determine if your dragon gains boosts or drawbacks in certain activities. You can still have a very calm aggressive dragon, or a head strong vigilant dragon.
 
*You are allowed to give your dragon any health defect, except stillborn. Remove healthy if they have any defect and replace with the defect.
*Intersex dragons are allowed, however they are infertile and cannot breed.

 

If you have a breath/wish to add a breath to a geno, you may place the item artwork for that breath in your import.

There are two types of Genos, Old World and New World genos. Old ones are ones that were rolled/received before the website opening date, 9/22/2020. New world genos are ones after. You can tell which you have by where the geno resides. If the proof of the geno is on DeviantArt, it is old world. If it is on the website, it is new world!
