2018 Marking and Mutation Contest

Wed Jan 10, 2018, 2:20 PM


Souls-between is looking to the community to help us create new markings that we can roll out to the game over time! 

RULES:

  1. Markings /mutations should be either based on real animals or original 
  2. You can submit as many ideas as you wish but you can only win the grand prize once! 
  3. A visual will need to be presented [examples on imports preferred, or photos of the marking in the real world!] 
  4. They should not mimic the markings/mutations we have too heavily! 

REWARDS

Mysterious Dragon Egg by The-Below Premium Loot Chest by The-Below Diminished Coin by The-Below
  1. Winners who have their marking/mutation accepted will receive 1 mystery egg, and the ability to add-on the marking/mutation to a geno/custom/uploaded dragon when it is released [however the marking count on the dragon is not allowed to exceed 6 marks] and a premium loot chest
  2. If you have two or more markings/mutations chosen you will be rewarded a diminished coin per extra idea!

SUBMITTING 

It is recommended you create visual guides of the markings/mutations to help us understand the marking/mutation! Post your ideas  in a comment on this journal! 

It is also very helpful to give us an idea of what the marking can do in recessive/dominant, and its rules! We might tweak them if need be! We will assign rarities on ideas!

FAQ


When does this contest end? 

This contest will be open until the end of January but in the future we might open it again! 

How will I know my idea was picked? 

We will notify you! We might even pick out winners for ideas that we truly do enjoy, but we will comb through all ideas at the end of January and give everyone a fair chance!

I don't have a dragon, but my idea was picked? 

Hang onto that marking/mutation and work to get a dragon with the community! So long as the dragon doesn't have 6 marks, you can add the marking on it [if a marking]!

*If it wasn't obvious the color variety (those big stripes) are just to show how it would show up on different coats.

Hey there Scian! Totally forgot you had suggested whiskers, so you can claim this as a prize win too! Sorry about that <3 
I'll also be including your "extra skin" along the legs mutation! I don't know what we will call it just yet! Sorry again and thank you for participating in the contest <3

MUTATION

Hydra
Can be inbred or "normal" mutation.
Hydra mutation causes the second head appear on the drake.
