Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Who do I credit for a character on Toyhou.se?
Please credit Jackalune as the creator for all species except Fuwa Bozu, which are created by Raishiteru!
Designer credits should go to whoever made the design, and should be available on the given design's Lyth profile.


Q. Can I make my own of X species?
Most of the species a part of Lyth are closed species, but also have ways to earn at least one within the game.


Q. Can I play without owning a character?
You do need a character to play most of the game (some quests may be doable with NPCs!), however there are many options to create a variety of our species! There are "FPCs" which can be created instantly and for free, to take part in many activities. Using them, you can "capture" other species as well.


Q. Can I make a character based on a copyrighted character?
No, you can take inspiration from anywhere but your designs cannot be a blatant copy of an already existing character (unless it is one you own and have permission to use), copyrighted or not.


Q. How big are Lythians?
Most Forim descendants are an average of five feet tall with differences of about a foot in range. However, their actual "lengths" may vary depending on their apparitions, rootage, and tail length. The only exception are Chuikhas, who are an average of six feet standing on all fours, though height differences up to two feet have been seen.

(Each of the lines on the size charts represents one foot. The silhouette on the far right is that of a human who is just over five and a half feet tall.)

Antecedents on the other hand, differ greatly in size depending on their species. As a general rule of thumb, the larger species — Gryfons, Natbaktera, Sheceans, etc. — have variations within two feet while the smaller species — Axomaurs, Flytes, Kella Ser, etc. — have variations within one foot.

(Each of the lines on the size charts represents one foot. The silhouette on the far right is that of a human who is just over five and a half feet tall.)

However, you are not required to follow these size guidelines and can come up with your own ideas; we just ask that they be within reason!


Q. Symphony Species: Can I change a Symphony's Bonded Song?
A Symphony's owner can change their bonded song once!


Q. Symphony Species: Can I use X song for my Symphony?
You may use any song you want; it doesn't matter if someone else used the same song and version as long as your design is not a copy of theirs. You may choose songs with a mature topic/language but you have to add a warning before linking to it.


Q. Fuwa Bozu Species: I have a Fuwa Bozu affiliate species that's not on the Lyth masterlist. How do I add them?
