News and Updates

[EVENT] Happy April!

Welcome, welcome, to this, the day of many pranks — April 1st!
This day is commonly known as April Fools’ Day on our Earth.
You can expect to see strange things going on today, even in Lyth...

First off, it seems a mysterious layout option has appeared in your Layout Preferences.
The most beautiful ????? ????? layout will only be available to choose on April 1st!
(But if you choose to use it, you can keep using it until you change to a different layout.)
Other than looking (ノ>ω<)ノ stylish 。・:*:♪・゚’☆, there is no benefit to using this layout over others.
Additionally, you may notice strange things happening to your profile avatars...
(We assure you it will go back to normal tomorrow.)

✦ Prompts ✦

Now, for some character-inclined news, we have a few prompts to inspire you!
We can't wait to see what fun, silly pieces y'all create this season~

✦ Not Ideal ✦

Draw an image with your non-dominant hand or write a story with your eyes closed.
(No editing or proofreading unless your eyes are still closed!)
We will be more lenient with the submission guidelines on this one!
Don’t stress out about the "quality" of this one~

✦ Paper Lyth and the Hundred Year Wall ✦

All of Lyth seems to have become 2D!
Everything is completely flat, how bizarre.
How does your Lythian react to this and navigate this strange new dimension?

✦ ???? ? ????? ✦

There uh, seems to be a glitch in the system.
Weird portals are opening up and taking Lythians into complete alternate universes.
How does your Lythian handle this teleportation? Do they want to go home?
Or are they content to exist in their new world as a schoolkid in a uniform (or any other world they may end up in)?

✦ Requirements ✦
Visual at least clean lines and flat colors (or shading if black and white)
Written at least 250 words per prompt (or per participant if RP log)
You can turn in a maximum of three prompts; you can do one prompt three times if you'd like!
Submit them via the ARPG submit form under "Event Prompt."
They must be turned in by April 15th @ 23:59:59 to be eligible for rewards!

✦ Rewards ✦

In addition to your normal currency claims, you'll get this new pet!
You will also receive 5 additional Loonoles as a base reward for event prompts.


Be silly! Get creative! Express yourself!
If you have any questions/comments, please feel free to leave a comment~

[EVENT] Discord Emoji Contest!

Hello, everyone, and welcome to the Realm of Lyth’s first Discord Emoji Contest!
As you may have already guessed by the title, we'd like to fill our Discord with more emojis!

✦ Requirements ✦

You must be in our Discord server.
You must have an on-site account.

✦ Entry Guidelines ✦

You may submit up to 5 emojis.
Discord recommends they be 128x128 px in size.
Emojis can be based on Discord emojis, memes, anything really!
Absolutely no NSFW is allowed.

Characters cannot be personal characters that you own, sorry!
For Forim descendants, you may draw Fluff, Charr, Leaff, Saltt, or Murkk.
They must be in their basic forms, no customization of appearance!
Antecedents and Companions may be from the Species Guides page.
You may also use any of our official NPCs, as seen in the shops!

Entries must be submitted to this Google Form.
You can submit your entries separately or in a single submission.
But make sure to save a transparent PNG file in case you win!

Our contest deadline is April 11 at 23:59:59 EDT.

✦ Judging Guidelines ✦

1. Please understand that we may not be able to have every emoji in the server!
2. Ideally, we'd like to spread them out among the species, so keep that in mind.
- (So preferably no more Symphonies, Natbaktera, or Kella Ser this time!)
3. We also already have some emojis, so similar ones are less likely to be chosen.
- (Dabbing, Big Thonk, Surprised Pikachu Face, Knife Cat, etc.)
4. Think about what emojis and reactions you would actually use!

✦ Prizes ✦

Of course, chosen emojis will be added into our server for everyone to use!
If your emoji wins, you get a Crafting Loot Box per emoji chosen.
These boxes each have 5 ingredients in them that can be used for crafting!
(Crafting is currently in testing for Patreon subscribers and coming soon for everyone!)

If you’d prefer something a little more tangible, you may also ask for 50 Loonoles per emoji instead.
Even if you don’t get chosen, everyone gets the Emojify Achievement for participating!


Good luck and have fun!

We also have released a New User Tutorial which will hopefully help explain some site features a bit better! Please do read through it — even if you are not a new player, there is a gift pack at the end which everyone can receive once!

[OPEN] Seeking Guest Artist for Events

✦ Current Status ✦

We're looking for those interested in making "mermaid" designs for May~!
Please submit applications ASAP if you're interested in participating in this.
Applications submitted at a later date will still be considered for future events.

✦ Guidelines ✦

Realm of Lyth is seeking 2D artists interested in designing adoptables for events.
These are not permanent/resident positions; you will not be added as staff.
We may, however, contact you more than once about multiple events!

Please familiarize yourself with the group, especially our Terms of Service!
You may also want to check if you are comfortable with our various species.
Forim descendants have adaptations while antecedents have subspecies, in lieu of "traits."

You will be tasked with creating designs and putting them up for adoption.
This may involve creating a batch of 1~4 designs for a specific event or events.
Adherence to deadlines is expected and you must be willing to communicate via Discord.

Temporary designers keep 100% of the profits from the designs they sell!
You must notify us a staff member when a design has been sold.
If a customer is being troublesome, please let the staff know!

✦ Requirements ✦

You must be 18 years or older.
You must be familiar with Discord and communicate readily.
(We usually type; Discord voice is not required.)
You must have a strong knowledge of artistic and design principles.
You must be able to work with a deadline and within the given guidelines.
You must know your own limits when participating in events with strict timetables.

✦ Application Form ✦

If you feel you would be a good fit, fill out the application below!
You can leave your application as a comment on our DA journal.
Or, you can email us at lythbound@gmail.com with subject "Temporary Designer Application."

Site Username: [your realm-of-lyth.com username]
Discord Username: [include the numbers after the #]
Timezone: [if you don't know, check this map]
Availability: [for example: "now" or "this summer" or "anytime other than during the school year"]
Design Portfolio: [link to your site or 3+ designs you're proud of]
Notes: [any past experience with guest designing or anything else you'd like us to know]
"I confirm that I am 18 years of age or older."

Just because you apply does not mean you'll be chosen.
You may reapply with updates, but please don't spam this journal!
We may not choose you for an upcoming event but we may consider you for a future one!


We look forward to working with you!
