Mythic Totems - which permit any markings, much like Life totems - have not been stocking in the Festival Stall during their festival.
The Myth Alligator Totem needed to have its name changed in order to be added, and the same may be necessary for other Mythic Totems in the future.
When September, the month of the Alligator, ends, the Mythic Alligator Totem will remain in the festival stall for 7 extra days to give everyone a chance to buy one. After that, all totems will be available during their own festival only.
Additionally, there is a thread in the Art and Skin forum about the current state of skin submissions (non-functional) and a potential workaround. Your thoughts are welcome.
Rabbits can now be found hopping around the desert. Can you convince one to come home with you?
Welcome to August 1st everyone!

An update has been made to the monthly perks for our premium subscribers.
Previously the monthly perks (6 free crystals + 1 free chest) for subscribers were given out on the first of the month for everyone. So if you subscribed early in the month, you would have had to wait a while to get your first monthly perk and this wasn't really indicated anywhere. I believe as a partial remedy it was made so 6 crystals were given immediately upon subscribing, but this means that subscribers would get 12 crystals in their first subscription cycle.
These issues are now solved:
Monthly perks are now based on subscription date, so when you subscribe you get your first monthly perk (6 crystals + 1 chest) immediately, and then further monthly perks are given on a 30 day interval since the last time you received a perk. There's also now proper logging of the giving of these perks so that moderators are better able to assist if something is to go awry.
If you subscribed before this month, you will receive perks on 30 day intervals starting from June 1st. If you subscribed in June, you have received your first monthly reward within the past hour, and your schedule will be every 30 days from today. New subscribers going forward will always receive their perks on a 30 day interval from their original subscription date, or in other words the monthly renewal date.
The way monthly subscriber perks are given now aligns with how it is implied in the subscriber benefits list. If you have any questions about this update, or about premium subscriptions feel free to drop a comment!
PS: Thanks for bearing with us during the unexpected downtime this morning. The issue has been resolved!
You can now organize your pets into storage tabs. Head to your territory, and you'll notice a new row above the filtering options. "Unsorted" shows pets that have not been put into tabs yet. Press the + button next to "Unsorted" to create your first storage tab. Basic members can make up to 15 tabs, premium subscribers can make 100 tabs. Choose a name to create the tab.
After you've made a tab, you can move pets into it. Press the Move Tabs icon on a pet to move it, or you can set the tab from the Edit Pet page.
You can delete and rename your tabs if you wish. Deleting a tab does not delete the pets within it.
Storage tabs are a great way to sort pets however you see fit. You might create a tab for pets that you are selling, or make one for each species.
Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions!

There was a bug going around that increased the base prices of the pets released, we apologize to anyone inconvenienced, but that bug was fixed. The rates going forward are as follows:
Adult pets unaffected by the Species and Marking bonuses will net you between 1,000 and 3,000 coins per release.
Baby pets unaffected by the Species and Marking bonuses will net you 500 coins.
Thank you all for your time and patience with the bugs going around.
It has come to our attention that some players have been confronting others regarding pets that have been released after purchase. This is not okay.
Once a pet leaves your territory, you no longer have any control over it. The new owner can do anything they want with the pet (within the rules of Novilar), including releasing it right away. If you wish for players to refrain from buying your pets and releasing them, it is recommended you sell them at a price point higher than the payouts from release; you can also exclusively use the Pet Sales and Trade section of the forums for selling pets, though this only allows you to inform potential buyers of your preferences. Neither of these sale options guarantee your pets won't be released after they are bought.
Confronting other players for what they do with pets is not acceptable behavior and will not be tolerated. You are no longer the owner of the pet and have no right to comment on what is done with the pet at that point, even if they choose to release the pet. Anyone caught confronting others will be dealt with by staff and punished accordingly.
If someone is breaking site rules in any form, submit a ticket via the Modbox and staff will look at the situation. Do not confront players who you think are breaking rules.
