ChaoChild 's Discord game nights will take place on May 4th at 3pm CST time for a game of Frankenpaca that will be given out to the community as a DTE raffle, and May 18th at 3pm CST time for a regular game night!

Discord Server


Trait Updates

Our lovely design mod, Echoklang is currently working through all the existing traits to update their wording to fit our traits in a more modern sense, and hopefully clear up any confusion regarding the current system having so many outdated clarifications. This is a slow process, so please be patient with her as she goes through these. Whenever she updates a trait, she will be posting in the #paca-patch-notes channel in our Discord Server.


New Staff Members

We'd like to welcome on our two newest staff members, 0lliever and cowboy ! They will be assisting us with prompts and you may have already even seen them working on some submissions! We request that you please be patient with them as they learn the ropes. We would also like to announce ChaoChild will be working with the design mods as well, helping them with design approvals and masterlist uploads. We're very thankful for all  of our staff members, and we hope everyone will love our newest additions!


May/June Event

Due to unforseen circumstances, there will be no major event for the durration of May or June. L.E.A.F. Tour returns however for the month of May, and we will be having some pride-themed prompts for June for people to participate in as well, but otherwise there is no lore-based events for these two months. Mirage Festival is still on for July and August though! :3c

Character of The Month
20_cOTGqmxkUC_th.png

Rosemallow

Rosemallow is a relatively clumsy and awkward paca, often stumbling over and mixing up his words when trying to socialise, but he's trying his best and loves making new friends! He's often accompanied by his snekket, Anima, who's a little overprotective of him.

Submit The Prompt!

Creature Feature


Sharp

This fishy little friend has a strange penchant for rounding up inanimate objects it finds, and using them as playmates! Once found in large packs, the Sharp has been slowly dwindling in numbers as a now almost-extinct species of pet. A Pacapillar initiative has formed recently to introduce other species such as the Narseal to Sharp’s to try and get them to socialize again, but it’s not such an easy task to look friendly with teeth like those!

Submit The Prompt!

 

Patreon
Did you know that by pledging to Nokkelborth 's Patreon for as little as $5 a month, you can gain access to exclusive Pacapillar rewards? By pledging, you can look forward to rewards such as:

Hello everyone, and welcome to our monthly newsletter! Happy April Fools! We hope you had a fun Easter Weekend if you celebrate! We have some fun things both here and on the horizon that we can’t wait to share with you all!

Major Updates
Design Mod Applications

We are seeking to bring on new staff members! We are currently looking for Design moderators to join our team. Experience is not required as long as we feel you can do the work. Any applicants must be of 18 years or older. Read more about the requirements and apply with the form linked below!

Application Form


Site Development Pause

There has been some issues showing up behind the scenes for our coder, Sweetstuff, and further development for the site is on pause while they try to figure out solutions to the issues at hand. We request that you are patient in this time and enjoy the features we do currently have in the meantime where Sweetstuff is only one person  and can only humanly do so much! Error reports will still be tended to, we're just pausing on new features for a little bit is all.

Donation Shop 

Got any items you no longer want but don't want to sell or trade? You can now donate these very items to the community to claim and use to their hearts content! To donate, simply go to the item you no longer want in question, tick the box on it, open the "Donate Item" dropdown, and then finally click Donate! That's all! Each user can also claim up to one free item from the donation shop once every 24 hours. 
Pets that are not in your inventory cannot be donated just yet, however we are hoping to make this possible when we can resume site development!

Donation Shop


Trait Info Update

We are very aware that our traits are really out-of-date and may be confuising for some users with this information being incorrect, so our lovely design moderator, Echoklang , will be going through and updating information on all the traits to get things organized once more. Please be patient as she works through these things over the next few days, but soon our traits will all have proper descriptions to correctly align with the current system.

Game Nights!

ChaoChild 's DIscord game night will take place on April 20th at 3pm CST time! There will be reminders posted in the server when they're getting things ready and when the game is live! Be sure to keep an eye out to have some fun with what they have planned!

Discord Server


Prompt Reminders

A reminder to everyone that Discord and DeviantArt links do not work for prompt submissions any longer due to both sites changing the way their images are linked on external websites. You can still use Toyhouse and Stash to a degree, but we would highly prefer if users continued to use our on-site galleries for ease of access to staff members. 

Please also remember to add criteria to your submissions. There is a banner on the submissions page that mentions this, and every prompt has it as a requirement, We can only edit criteria forms from mod-side, and cannot add them from scratch. Please be weary of this to avoid your prompt being rejected!
Further, many users have been submitting art pieces alongside stories, which is perfectly fine, just please remember that any literary works must have a minimum of 1 character featured + 300 words at base, OR a colored halfbody Pacapillar/Snekket for art pieces. These are our base requirements for our Miscellaneous submissions, so anything less than these base requirements will not count towards extra rewards!


New Gallery Submission Layout

When submitting to the gallery, we noticed a lot of users were getting confused over the description and literature boxes where they were never really clear in the default layout, so  we've cleaned up the submission page to now show the title, description, content warning, and other user inclusion  at the top, and the image, literature, and character sections are now at the bottom before the submit button. With the encouragement of submitting to the galleries nowadays, we hope this new layout makes the process much simpler!


Item Sub-Categories

With the growing selection of collectables, we wanted a way to keep things more organized until we can split collectables off into their own thing, so in the meantime we've added item sub-catergories. This, unfortunately, does not affect how items are displayed on your profile, however in the Encyclopedia you can see what items belong to what categories, HERE!

Current Event
🥚 Eggs Giving (Parts 3 + 4) 🌸
March 1st, 2024 - April 30th, 2024
219-image.pngAfter the confusing events of March only for Sachet to not really be much of a help, Monet is finally home from vacation. so you go and have a chat with him to get any information you can about Snekkets, however your glistening egg has hatched already! Hopefully Monet is able to help you before too much chaos ensues  with your new Snekket hatchling!
------------------------------------------
This event will feature 5 prompts in total; 4 of which you will need to complete to unlock the next part of the story, and one that you can do in both March and April! March will release parts 1 and 2, and April will release parts 3 and 4. Parts 1 and 2 will NOT expire on March 31st, instead running in to April so anyone who missed the March half can still participate in unlocking parts of the story. Completion of part 1 will unlock part 2, and the same will be said for parts 3 and 4, requiring completion of the other parts prior to  unlocking the next part. All of these prompts will require a complex background OR 1000 words, so please make sure to not push your parts completion until last minute so you have time to do all 4!
These story-based prompts will put usage to our interactive dialogues feature!
The smaller prompt that you can do in both March and April requires just 2 fullbodies (one snekket, and one paca), and is much more lenient than the story prompts!
Anyone who completes part 1 will be given a surprise basket that has an account-bound snekket MYO inside! If you've ever wanted a Snekket, but couldn't use the Cash Shop for any reason, now's your chance to get yourself your very own noodle!
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
🎈 Playful Pranks 🎉
April 1st, 2024 - April 7th, 2024
It's April Fools! That means it's time to play a prank on your friends and loved ones! With this flash prompt, you have one week to create a piece of your Pacapillar or Snekket pulling a prank on someone else! Everyone who completes this prompt will be entered into a free raffle for a very detailed poison Pacapillar design by TornPages , and though the raffle is random, every user who participates in the prompt will get a randomized Silly Little Friend that has a playful theme to them!

March Newsletter

Posted 2 months ago :: Last edited 2 months ago by TornPages

Hello everyone, and welcome to our monthly newsletter! A lot is going on currently, so please be sure to read up on everything! We have some fun things both here and on the horizon that we can’t wait to share with you all!

Quick Navigation

 

Major Updates
Discord + Deviantart Linking

If you have been following other closed species groups, you may be aware of a new issue that has arisen ; Discord and DeviantArt no longer allow for image linking to external websites, and though Discord has a timer for 24-48 hours before their links are inaccessable, DeviantArt, unfortunately, seems to have their links inaccessible almost immediately. This has proven to be annoying to deal with both as someone to submit prompts, and to those of us on staff who rely on these websites for a lot of our images. Due to this update, many of our on-site images will be broken until further notice. We need to track down all the files we had and add them back to the site in a different way, and we are asking that you please remain patient with us during this time while we get everything fixed.

Alongside this, users prompt submissions from these links also will be affected, so we are asking that any users who rely on DeviantArt and Discord linking for their prompt submissions to please migrate to using our on-site galleries found HERE. This will ensure your links are safe and staff can view them easily.
To our knowledge, Toyhouse, Imagur, and other sites still work for now, but just to be safe in case any other sites follow, we are requesting that submissions are posted to the galleries.

We have added warning banners to the top of the prompt submission page to remind anyone of this issue before they submit.


Prompt + Design Mod Applications

We are seeking to bring on new staff members! We are currently looking for one Prompt moderator and one Designs moderator to join our team. Experience is not required as long as we feel you can do the work. Any applicants must be of 18 years or older. Read more about the requirements and apply with the form linked below!

Game Nights Return!

Our newest Discord mod, ChaoChild has been making plans to bring lots of fun back into the community! They have been working steady to have some games lined up for everyone to participate in! Upcoming for March, they will be hosting a game of Franken Paca on March 9th at 3pm CST. A Discord-based game night will be hosted March 16th at 3pm CST as well. Be sure to join our Discord server and pick up the Game Night role in the #directory channel to get pinged whenever a fun game is being played!
Discord Server


Discord Rule Updates

Due to the large amount of insincere complements art pieces have been getting, we have updated our Discord server rules to try and fix this issue. All users must now say at least two things nice about the piece above them before posting their own work. It's not cool to put time into a piece, only to get posted over by someone who doesn't seem to care; be kind. Encourage people's art journey, everyone starts somewhere afterall. 

We also would like to remind the community that 18+ species may not be advertised in our server. Our community is 13+, and we would rather keep those kinds of things out of our spaces. If you would like to trade something from an adult-orientated species, simply mention something along the lines of "check mutual servers" or "please DM me for other species  I'm interested in."


Minor Submission Page Edits

With a large number of users forgetting their criteria rewards when submitting their pieces,  we've added a banner to the submission page, as well as highlighted the "Please add the proper criteria to your submission" part of the standard prompt rules in red to emphasize the need to include criteria in your submission. We also have made the "+ Criteria" button a solid color so that it stands out easier on the submission page from all the other outline buttons. 

Staff can not add criteria forms to submitted prompts, but instead we can only edit user-filled out forms. Please remember to include your criteria to get your full rewards for your submission, especially if you are prone to last-minute submissions with little time to resubmit if needed.


Prompt Edits
  • We've changed the layout of prompts to no longer have everything hidden behind spoiler boxes. Everything is now put in boxes directly visible to anyone clicking on "More Details"  so that everyone can check  the requirements much quicker.
  • Now only prompts with bonuses or key notes have the "Extras" section. No longer will you have to wonder "Is there actually extras to this prompt or not?" If the Extras section is there, then there are extras to keep note of!
  • All prompts now feature a new General Requirement that permits you to  create crafts instead of standard art pieces or writing submissions. This has always been permitted, however it was well-requested by the community to include this, so we hear you guys! Prompts are now much clearer on this feature!
  • NEW unlockable prompts: Thanks to our coder and moderator, Sweetstuff , we can now set prompts to require another prompt before you unlock another. This means you can properly complete the Sowing Friendship prompt in order before Barn Pursuit or Coop Miracle to properly unlock the farm. We plan to utilize this feature in the future with some events as well as further ARPG prompts.

Pronouns

You can now have your pronouns displayed on your profile, making it easier for everyone to address you! Your pronouns will display underneath your username on your profile, and beside your username in comments! To add these to your profile, simply fill out the new box in your settings page! (Pronouns are custom input, so they are not limited to a list of designated pronouns, and you can instead set whatever you're most comfortable with!)

🥚 Eggs Giving (Parts 1 + 2) 🌸
March 1st, 2024 - April 30th, 2024
206-image.pngAll over Crysalopolis, mysterious gift baskets are showing up without warning on Pacas' doorsteps containing Glistening Eggs among the contents! No one has stated that they are the one leaving these gifts around, but Pacas everywhere are confused as to why they were chosen to be given a snekket egg. While some Pacas are hopeful to raise the eggs into hatching to become a Snekket to match their own appearance, some eggs have hatched early, pairing Pacas with baby Snekkets that look nothing like them! While some are quick to just accept things the way they are, others want to get to the bottom of things and find information to who would go around Crysalopolis and just leave baby Snekkets on strangers doorsteps for just anyone to raise. Luckily the baskets come with some very basic  things to tend to Snekket needs!
------------------------------------------
This event will feature 5 prompts in total; 4 of which you will need to complete to unlock the next part of the story, and one that you can do in both March and April! March will release parts 1 and 2, and April will release parts 3 and 4. Parts 1 and 2 will NOT expire on March 31st, instead running in to April so anyone who missed the March half can still participate in unlocking parts of the story. Completion of part 1 will unlock part 2, and the same will be said for parts 3 and 4, requiring completion of the other parts prior to  unlocking the next part.

Updates
Our staff have been very busy working on updates in the background, so be sure to keep an eye out for those! In the meantime, please give a warm welcome to our newest staff member, ChaoChild ! They will primarily be watching over the Discord Server and will help us in getting some things in there checked more regularly, such as the DTPAY minigame. Please be patient with them while they are still in training!
Boreal Wishes has officially come to a close for this year! We hope you had fun with this little Christmas + New Year's combined event. The event shop will remain open for 1 week so be sure to get all your snow crystals spent! Once the shop closes, we will reset everyone's balance for next year's round. We are looking to improve on events and make them engaging and fun for users, so if you have any feedback about the Boreal Wishes event, please feel free to share your thoughts either in the suggestions channel in the Discord Server, or in our feedback form  found under the "Help" section of the site here (You have the option to stay anonymous on the feedback form if you would like.)

💖 Corewarming 💖
February 1st, 2024 - February 29th, 2024
196-image.pngLove is being felt all across Chrysalopolis ,and Pacas and Snekkets can't help but share the love with one another! Whether it's directed at their friends, a crush, or even a partner, everyone has someone they care about! The former classic prompt, "Core Hunt!" has made a comeback and has had a little bit of revision to make it more adapted to our modern prompt system. Coming along with it are two new Corewarming prompts, "Corewarming Cards" and "Feel The Love!". There will be no event currency or event shop this month where the event is smaller than our Halloween and winter holiday events, and there will not be a breeding event this year as we are still trying to figure out a way to organize it better than we had in the past, we do know it is a popular demand though, so fingers crossed we can have it again in the future!

January Newsletter

Posted 4 months ago :: Last edited 4 months ago by TornPages

Hello everyone, and welcome to our monthly newsletter! We hope you are enjoying your New Year's! This is a smaller newsletter this month,  but you can always expect more updates in the future! We have some fun things both here and on the horizon that we can’t wait to share with you all!

Quick Navigation

 

Updates
With the updates of criteria rewards being added, as well as the gift art notification feature, a popular request we've gotten is to make the Character of the Month prompt much more rewarding and engaging to encourage people to draw and write about the month's feature, and we just want you all to know that we hear your suggestions! Now, when you are submitting a prompt, you will have a switch option  that you can activate that will reward you 1000 bonus leaflets if you include the Character of the Month in your piece. You will still need to do the base prompt to be entered into the raffle to have the chance at your own character getting featured, but we hope with this bonus being implemented that it will encourage people to make lovely pieces of the featured character more often!

Next up, our seasonal prompts, Harvest the Best, Winter Cheers, Spring Party, and Beach Party have officialy been retired. We hope you all enjoyed these prompts in their run, but to make things easier for everyone, these prompts will be replaced with new seasonal prompts that have the same submission requirements as Autumn is Here, Cup of Warmth, Spring Flowers, and Heat Wave. Of course you are still 100% allowed to include 4 or more pacapillars/snekkets in your piece, but it will no longer be required to get both seasonal prompts completed. Our first of these new prompts to show up is the new winter seasonal, The First Snowfall! 

If you ever have suggestions for improvement of the species, we are keeping tabs on them more than ever, hoping to make things better for everyone overall. You can submit feedback and suggestions either in our Discord server in the #suggestion-box channel  or you can submit privately and/or anonymously through our Feedback Form found under our "Help" dropdown in the navigation bar on-site here!

 

What's Coming
Coming soon to theatres near you
Though December was very busy for everyone, we want everyone to know that despite activity picking up again, we are still tirelessly working on new features, events, and activities for everyone to participate in. We've been super happy about the engagement so far from all our updates, and we're hoping to push that activity further.
ezgif-3-33d538a0f0.gif
  • As mentioned in last month's newsletter, NPCs will soon each have their own little ARPG prompts similar to the three existing farming prompts. We are still working out the finer details, but we know you guys love the NPCs just as much as us, and we really hope to encourage people into playing with them more often!
  • Collections have their own custom organization in the works. We are still trying to figure out how to execute this in a way that is both easy to work with on user and mod sides, all while being easy on the eyes. We have yet to fully decide if we are going to be using an existing extension, or if we are going to create something completely new and custom to pacapillars, but in summary, your little collectables will only be compiled in one little ugly inventory section all mixed together for just a little bit. When we have finished with a collection feature to the site, we will make it so everything is sorted into their respective collection accordingly.
  • Visual guides are closer than ever! We know this has been teased for... well, years, but we will just be cleaning up some loose ends over the next little bit, and we're hoping to get the guides publicly accessable sooner rather than later. We understand users getting frustrated over the wait, it is important information everyone needs to know after all, but it shouldn't be more than a couple months now if luck is on our side!
  • We almost have a full run of reoccurring events to take place through every month of the year. We wont give too many details for planned events yet as to keep things a surprise, but we have been learning from past events what people like, and what they don't like, so we are hoping to keep these events fun for everyone. Themes for each reoccurring event will change anually, but if you ever have ideas for event themes, feel free to send us a suggestion in our discord server or in our feedback form (details about leaving feedback can be found in the above "Updates" section of this newsletter!)
  • Over the next few days, you can expect to see a new little comment in prompts mentioning that you can create crafts for the prompt in question! We saw how much everyone loved making crafts for Halloween, so we just wanted everyone to know that crafting is always an alternative option to most prompts so long as you still follow the base requirements to the best of your ability.
  • The toyhouse world and shelter storage are going to be facing a small face lift as far as their main page layouts. I, ( TornPages ), must admit, my old codes for either one of those are a bit clunky and hard to work with, making them rather unfavorable to edit on a regular basis. My goal is to keep the basic information provided on the main pages, all while trying to make the overall layout look cleaner and making it a million times easier to edit from our side.

L.E.A.F. Tour
~Check in next month for dates~
Our NPC singing group, L.E.A.F. are going on tour! They will be visiting Chrysalopolis at random times serving as a pop-up prompt of sorts. The event will have the duration of 1 month during their specified tour months. Rumor has it you will see them making their first appearance in February, but for now you better head on over to Free Gifts to claim your concert tickets so you can see them live when they are in town! In the meantime while we wait for their tour to go live, why not show us some love for your favorite L.E.A.F. member in one of your prompt submissions? (you can click on their individual little images to be taken to their masterlist entry!)

Character of The Month
6959_B1qWdZffYB_th.png

Citron

A chill guy who likes to bake sweet treats and occasionally sell them at Matcha's coffee shop. He is a "go with the flow" kind of guy, but tries to avoid uncomfortable situations which results in him sometimes making poorly timed jokes.

Submit The Prompt!

Creature Feature

Drach (New Years)

Unlike other Drach, this pet variant only appears before those they deem worthy. Instead of filing down their horns, the New Years Drach grants a wish to their preferred individual, combusting the star at the end of their horn like a sparkler. Each Drach can only grant one wish per year, though, so make it count!

December Newsletter

Posted 5 months ago :: Last edited 5 months ago by TornPages

Hello everyone, and welcome to our monthly newsletter! This one's a really big one, so buckle up! We have some fun things both here and on the horizon that we can’t wait to share with you all!

Quick Navigation

 

What's New
Big thank you to our moderator, Sweetstuff for their ongoing coding work on the site! Some of you may have noticed some of the new features they have added already, but in case you missed it, here's what's new:

  • Character Folders: You can now put your characters into custom folders! To do this, simply go to "My Characters" under the "Home" dropdown in the navigation bar and create folders, assigning your characters to them. If you wish to sort your folders, all you need to do is click and drag your characters; the folders undeneath your characters will determine which order your folders are in on your profile. Remember to hit "Save Order" at the bottom of the page to keep your progress!
  • Profile Feature: Following the folders, in the same page at the very bottom you will see a new section labeled "Selected Character". Choose one of your characters from the dropdown and hit "Submit" to have one specific paca featured on your profile next to your bank and inventory.
  • Gift Art Notifications: You can now be notified for any time someone includes your characters in a submission, and in turn, notify others when you include their characters in a piece. In the submission menu when you add a character in, if the character does not belong to you, there will be an option to "Notify User". Selecting "No" will not notify the owner of the art/writing, but selecting "Yes" will notify the owner of the character that you included them in your piece
  • Criteria Rewards: You will now get bonus leaflets for every prompt you submit! All you need to do is click on the new button in the submission page, "+ Criteria", and select the options that apply to your piece. Remember to add these to every submission! Mods can only edit filled out criteria, and we cannot add any to a submission that doesn't have any in the first place!
  • NPC Dialogues: NPCs are silent no longer! We've installed a new feature that will let you read through NPC talking, narration, and even some lore in a style similar to virtual novels!
  • Birthday Rewards: Now on the first of every month, any user who has a birthday during that month will automatically get a birthday gift delivered into their inventory. Open the box to get 2,500 1-icon.png, 3 2-icon.png, and a special super rare birthday-exclusive pet designed by our lovely Nokkelborth !
    NOTE: You must have your birth month set visible to logged in users at the minimum for the system to detect your birthday and give you your gift on rollover!

 

Major Updates
Leaflet + Shop rebalance
We've very recently had a major update regarding the balancing of the leaflet economy, as well as making things more accessable in shops to users. In this update, you will notice:
ezgif-3-33d538a0f0.gif
  • User, shop, and prompt payout leaflet values have all been multiplied by 10
  • You can now get anywhere from 10 1-icon.png to 300 1-icon.png from Monet's Daily Roll!
  • Farm crops now yield 3x their original selling prices, and Coop / Barn produce now yield 4x their orignal selling prices
  • Coop and Barn animals can now be purchased at Darling's Market for 100 1-icon.png instead of 2,500  1-icon.png, making it easier to fill up your farm slots!
  • Elixirs and MYO Cores for already-owners have been added to Barrie's Berry Shop, and the Rare MYO Bundle has been removed. The already-owner MYO Core will reset once a month and isn't static to one-time-only!
  • Oleras that can be purchased with leaflets have lowered from 4 on resetting stock to 2
  • Dubious Berries, Forbidden Berries, and Olera Berries have increased slightly in price from 35,000 1-icon.png to 45,000 1-icon.png for Dubious berries, 60,000 1-icon.png to 75,000 1-icon.png for Forbidden Berries, and 14,000 1-icon.png to 25,000 1-icon.png for Olera Berries
  • Commeli Berries, Salix Berries, Minmites, and Whirs have also all been reduced in prices from 2,500 1-icon.png to 1,000 1-icon.png for Commeli Berries, 4,500 1-icon.png to 2,500 1-icon.png for Salix Berries, and 2,500 1-icon.png to 1,500 1-icon.png for Minmites and Whirs
  • Subspecies berries have been added to the Cash Shop! Dubious Berries are available for $120, and Forbidden Berries are available for $200
  • Wonderous Gifts bought from the Cash Shop now allow you to select what item you get from it!

 

Prompts 

With the addition of Criteria Rewards, our prompts have seen some big changes as well, and we still plan to improve prompts further!

  • Minmites and Whirs have retired from being add-on bonuses, and are now classified as regular pets. All existing Minmites and Whirs have been converted into boxes that you can open to get a pet version of them, name them, and attach them to your characters!
  • Shading is no longer required for submissions, but instead counts as an extra you can do!
  • All prompts (with the exception of improvement and ARPG prompts) can now be commissioned, and no longer just Self Portrait and A Lovely Gift. Just state that the piece was commissioned in your criteria by turning the "Commissioned Piece" switch on; you will not get the full bonus rewards that you would by creating a piece yourself, instead getting a portion of that amount (You will still recieve the full base-rewards of the prompt!) You may not submit artwork that you were paid (money, site currency, pets or item trades) to do. 
  • Winter Cheers, Spring Party, Beach Party, and Harvest the Best are retiring from prompts! Instead, we will now feature a new prompt similar to their simpler variants, Cup of Warmth, Spring Flowers, Heat Wave, and Autumn is Here when they are rolled over. Seasonal prompts roll over from autumn to winter on December 21st, so be sure to get any Harvest the Best submissions in before then, because next year it will be replaced!
  • We have added a new "Miscellaneous Pacapillar Submissions"  prompt that you can submit an unlimited amount of time for any pacapillar pieces that do not apply to other existing prompts.
  • Events with prompts are going to become a more regular thing. We loved seeing the love the Mirage Festival and Soulbloom Feast got, and we have no plans at stopping just there!
  • We are trying to bring more life into our beloved NPCs again, and are in the works of planning special ARPG prompts where you can interract with the NPCs and get special rewards for completion. Stay tuned for further information!

 

Soulbloom Feast Wrapup
Soulbloom Feast is now officially over for 2023. We hope everyone enjoyed this event. Be sure to stick around for next year's release in which we will strive to make it better for users. We've heard every suggestion following the event, and will work to make things better for everyone. We hear you and appiriciate your feedback!

Congratulations to JacyFox for winning the Special "Seasons Change" Monster Pacapillar raffle created by TornPages . You will be transferred the character shortly and TornPages will send you a message with the full-resolution file of your new bean! We really loved seeing everyones amazing crafts, and you guys really blew us away with your creations!

Candy collectables are now tradeable and can no longer be sold for event currency. You can now trade with other users to try and complete your collection! Were you able to get all 10?

Thymes shop will remain open for a little bit yet if you still have event currency candies you want to trade in, and will close in exactly one week and any reamining candies currency will be deleted so that more focus can be spent on the Boreal Wishes event. Thyme is here to stay however! She is a permanent NPC you can include in your pieces freely!

Pacas are starting to move indoors more where it's warm, often enjoying things like cuddling under a blanket with all their pets, or experimenting with different flavors of hot cocoa! The holiday season truly nears however pacas start to see stunning rainbow lights dance across the night sky, marking the start of Boreal Wishes, a season in which pacas gather together and put aside their differences, often giving gifts to each other to celebrate, and throwing huge parties in the middle of the season to ring in the new year. The Boreal Wishes season is most certainly the most joyous time of all.

Flox

Said to have evolved from a long-forgotten, surface dwelling forager species of animal, the Flox now populates dense forests and snowy peaks in the floating Pacapillar Colony. They communicate with bell-like chimes produced from their decorated mane, and scavenge for long lost trinkets and baubles to add to it! This wily pet flaunts its collection with pride. They may just leave you a trinket of your own, if they wish for you to join their pack!

Soulbloom Feast

Posted 7 months ago :: Last edited 7 months ago by TornPages

It’s time for the Soulbloom Feast!

Deep into the forest, Pacas from all over Chrysalopolis are gathering together to partake in the festivities. As you are running around the grounds of the event, soaking in all the possible fun activities you can do, someone from one of the booths calls to you...

Click to read more


   A soft, oddly large, pastel pink and green paca with a purple hat smiles as she successfully caught your attention, notioning for you to come on over. You decide to go speak with her, figuring why not? You are here to have fun after all, and the booths are half of that!

     “Well hello, small friend~ I don’t recall seeing you attend the Soulbloom Feast last year. Perhaps I missed you?” Her voice is soft and soothing, while her body has flowers growing off of it, giving off a scent that makes you feel comfortable around her. Upon shaking your head ‘no’, that you weren’t at the event the year prior, the paca seemingly beams in excitement. “Oh joy! Then are you aware of the folklore behind this event and why we celebrate?”

    Awaiting your reply eagerly, she can’t help but allow herself to make a soft ‘squee’ sound as she found her next victim to tell a story to. “That’s perfect! Allow me to tell you!” She cleared her throat before letting her tone turn more serious, almost as though she was narrating straight from a book.

    “These woods are thought to be the home for those who are corrupt and have fallen from magic. Monsters and Poisons lurk within the shadows, hiding away from the common world of Chrysalopolis. Now the age-old question arises; Chrysalopolis is built up on magic, and only those who hold magic within themselves can be held within our little floating civilization we have in the clouds here, but Monsters who have little to no magic are still able to remain here without falling through to the earth below. How are they able to do this is a question that has baffled many for decades, if not centuries. Well legend has it that Monsters built a web, think like a spider web, that hangs beneath Chrysalopolis. In this web, it’s said that Monsters built their own city of sorts down there. A place where they can escape to, and a place where they are safe and not seen as a threat. That city of webs is said to be directly beneath this forest, leading many to believe that is the reason these woods have so many beings of corruption here.”

 

     The oddly comforting paca paused to take a sip of her drink before continuing. “That may leave you wondering, why do we come here then to celebrate if it’s so potentially dangerous to pacas who haven’t fallen to corruption? Well, little bean shape, that all boils down to the enormous tree you see before us.” She pointed in the direction of the huge, strangely smooth, tree at the centre of the grounds with her long, flower-like tails. “This tree is said to hold the souls of the past. Come nightfall, you will see why that is, but I won’t spoil the surprise for you~”

 

     She couldn’t help but chuckle as you looked up at the tree, raising an eyebrow in confusion as you laid eyes on what seemed to be… Candy? growing from the branches. “The Sweet Berries don’t have anything to do with that, no. That is a neat little thing to consider though! Only around this time of year, the tree sprouts fruits that resemble candies we enjoy any other time regularly outside of the forest. Why we actually gather here though, is when the tree sheds its bark and becomes smooth, those who have passed, in legend, are able to walk the land of Chrysalopolis alongside us. We celebrate here so that we can connect with those we lost, and celebrate our own lives.” What seemed to be a rather large opal or moonstone sparkled slightly beneath her long fur, but you paid no mind to it aside from it probably being a really heavy pendant. You are brought back to attention as the paca begins to speak once more.

    “In honor of the souls within the tree, we have a feast. We cook, serve, and eat to both embrace the lives lost and the ones we live. So every year when this threshold is crossed between the afterlife and those who breathe, we celebrate.” She started moving to come out from behind her stand, but not quite fully yet. “Now with that out of the way, go enjoy yourself, tiny friend~ If you end up getting any extra candy around the grounds, feel free to bring them over to me, and I can give you goodies in return, think of it like an arcade prize stand! Do stay safe, however. You never know when a Monster paca is around the corner…” She winked, coming out from behind her stand fully, placing a ‘be back in 10 minutes’ sign on it, but to you, it was revealed that her pendant was, in fact, not a pendant, but a core. The soft paca had alarmingly large pincers that shone in the autumn lighting as a soft rose gold in color. “By the way, my name's Thyme. I do hope to see more of you soon~”

We hope you join us in this brand-new event!

There's brand-new prompts  that award Candies, the event currency, and a special crafting challenge with extra special rewards, including a raffle ticket for a very special paca!

This time around we have a new NPC, Thyme! She is currently hosting the event shop, Creeping Thyme Stall. 
In this shop, you'll find new mutation items, brand-new pets, a capsule to obtain older halloween pets, and more!

 


The Candy Bag item contains 4 random candy items, which can be collected or sold for 1 candy each!  Keep your eye out for the rare Candy Berry, which is worth 2 candies!

 

Patreon supporters will also get a bonus 5 Candies for tiers below $35, and a bonus 10 Candies for tiers at $35 or above!

We hope this new event is enjoyable to you, and that you stay tuned for more events in the future; thank you for your continued support, and enjoy the Feast!!

 

The event runs from today to November 30th! There will be a one more prompt in November to get some more candy!

August Newsletter

Posted 9 months ago :: Last edited 9 months ago by Quiche
Hello everyone, and welcome to our monthly newsletter! We have some fun things both here and on the horizon that we can’t wait to share with you all.

 

To start things off, we have an ongoing event called the mirage festival!

The Snekket-based event, the Mirage Festival, is now live! Enjoy a myriad of fun-filled activities like snekket based prompts, an event-only shop including exclusive items, a snekket themed discord game later this month, and more! https://play.pacapillars.com/news/42.mirage-festival-2023 

All prompts featured in the festival can be found here, and grant monet tickets! The event shop, Mirage’s Prize Stand, can be found here, and has a couple different items that can be purchased for monet tickets. The newest and most exclusive item, Hol-O’s, grants a new trait called Overlay! This trait encases the entire paca in a substance of your choosing. The trait is Mutation+, and can be obtained by applying either a Ripe Olera or the seasonal item Hol-O’s. Here's a graphic that showcases the new trait: 

We hope you enjoy playing around with the trait, and make sure you check out the shop!

DISCORD AND GAMING PLUG

Make sure to check out the discord this month! Winners and participants in these games get various forms of leaflet rewards, but with the event season being upon us, they will also be eligible to receive Monet tickets for certain games! Our first scheduled game will be this Friday, the 4th of August, at 6pm EST for Gartic Phone! It’ll be using the plug-in discord has for the game, so there’ll be no external websites needed! Everyone who participates will get leaflets, but only those who stay for a full hour of play will win Monet Tickets!

 

UPCOMING SALES

The month of August will feature:
  • A batch of Guest Artist designs made by Cherrysnakecat on the 15th 
  • Designs by Nokkelborth. As always, Nokkel’s patreon usually gets first looks at designs and are normally eligible to make claims in advance, so if that interests you, we recommend taking a look.
  • Some premade snekkets will be made for the event from various team members, type of distribution for each is subject to change so keep your eyes peeled!
  • 3 Winged pacapillar designs made by Quiche, which will be featured on the Winged pacapillar guide! Prices and whatnot subject to change, so full details will be released later as part of the posts. One design is scheduled to open this Friday, the 4th of August, and the other two will be released on Sunday the 20th.
  • As always, we may sneak in some surprise designs, some of which may be discord only, so watch out 👁️

 

CREATURE FEATURE

If you’re unaware, every month we feature a new pet in our Creature Feature corner, giving extra lore and information relative to the Pacapillar universe. The prompt related to this pet will also reward you with that pet, to share some of the love!

Speaking of, August’s creature feature is Kittar! Check out the prompt to get one today. 



CHARACTER OF THE MONTH

As you all may have noticed, there’s a new feature on our home page! Starting this month, we will begin having a Pacapillar or Snekket of the month! The winner will be chosen at random from accepted prompt submissions for the category (via the raffle function on our website). Each person will submit which character they want if chosen. For the upcoming month in which they are chosen, we will dedicate a section of our Newsletter featuring that character, and signify what bonuses you can receive by including that character in your prompts. Please make sure to read all the rules for this prompt very carefully, as there are a lot more to it than our normal prompts.  You can find the prompt here.

Mirage Festival 2023!

Posted 10 months ago :: Last edited 10 months ago by Nokkelborth

It's the Mirage Festival!!

unknown.png


It’s a special festival that happens every year in Chrysalopolis, in a place called “Dream Cloud”, which is an errant land mass covered with clouds that once a year gets close to Chrysalopolis. Pacas anchor it to Chrysalopolis for the festivities. It’s like making a party on a shooting star!


After the success of the snekket bonding theme last year, it has been decided that snekkets will remain a key focus for the festival! You may ask what this year's theme is then if last year the love between a paca and their snekket was the focus, and we're pleased to announce that for this Mirage Festival, the theme will be pastries and baked goods! Get your sweet tooth ready for loads of nub-made goodies!.


How does it work?


We have made a variety of prompts that award Monet Tickets! You can use them to get various rewards from the Mirage Prize Stand, including a brand new Mutation+ item that grants the Overlay trait!
Monet Tickets are valid from today and until September 30, 2023. All unused tickets after that day will disappear.

Prompts for this event end on September 16, 2023.

 

Additionally, we will be opening our Toyhou.se world very soon along with a general guide. More news soon ♥ 

June Newsletter

Posted 11 months ago :: Last edited 11 months ago by Quiche
Hello everyone, and welcome to our second ever monthly newsletter! We have some fun things both here and on the horizon that we can’t wait to share with you all.

 

To start things off, we have a new host for our newsletter, Chikara!

   

I'm  still a little bit shocked I got the job, but I'm ready to bring you all the news you’ve been dying to hear. Although I may be an intern (for now), I look forward to working with the team going forward!

ezgif-3-33d538a0f0.gif

 

A little bit about me? Well, I'm actually part Kitsune! So the more I explore and learn, and the more I share with you guys, the stronger I grow. Yearly community events are especially great for my growth; who knows, I may even acquire a couple new tails and impart some of my knowledge on weary travelers! Stay tuned for more!

 

 
WHAT’S NEW

The month of June is going to be a bit on the quiet side when it comes to events, but we are projecting for some of our guides to be released during this time period. Many are in a fairly finished state, but need some tweaking before they’re ready for release. Thank you all for being so patient with us!

We also plan to start up discord games regularly, so definitely head on over there to check it out! Currently, we plan to host at least one game this upcoming weekend, and may do more as time permits. Winners and participants in these games get various forms of leaflet rewards, so make sure to be there! 

Joining our team is JacyFox  and Deertale! Jacy will be helping with design related duties, and Deertale will be working on prompt related duties.

NEW PROMPTS

Although all of our old monthly prompts are remaining the same, we have a couple of prompts that will be dropping this month! First of all is a Snekket flash prompt which will drop mid-month, where you all will be able to outfit your Snekket in a quirky costume. We really do love giving the spotlight to Snekkets, and hope you all enjoy it as much as we do! Our second prompt is going to be a new recurring monthly prompt, the Creature Feature!

 

CREATURE FEATURE

As you all may know, we have a lot of pets. A certified hoard of pets. Quite possibly an unreasonable amount of pets. But that’s okay! We love our pets, and want you all to know more about them! Every month we will feature a new pet in our Creature Feature corner, giving extra lore and information relative to the Pacapillar universe. The prompt related to this pet will also reward you with that pet, to share some of the love!

Speaking of, June’s creature feature is Nyandere! Check out the prompt to get one today. 



CHARACTER OF THE MONTH

Starting in a month or so, we will begin having a Pacapillar or Snekket of the month! The winner will be chosen at random from accepted prompt submissions for the category (via the raffle function on our website). Each person will submit which character they want if chosen. For the upcoming month in which they are chosen, we will dedicate a section of our Newsletter featuring that character, and signify what bonuses you can receive by including that character in your prompts. More information will be available when the feature goes live, so look out for future newsletters!

 

THE WORLD BELOW

As many of you may know, Pacapillars live on giant, floating clusters that are tethered together. The surface of the world that lays below them has always been a daunting mystery for most, and a source of fear for others. But perhaps the time is almost upon you all to pack your things, and gaze upon a world you haven’t connected with in many, many years.
