What is a MYO?

"MYO" or "Make Your Own" slots allow you to create a design of a specific species. The traits and species depend on the type of slot you have!

You can find all MYO slots and MYO designs here:

Sparkle by BrowbirdHow to get a MYO Slot

The primary way to get a MYO is to participate in prompts and save up your ✨Stargold. You are able to purchase one slot of each species for half price one time!

These slots can be found over at:

Specialty Supplies

FREE MYO Slots can be won for free from event raffles. Raffles are held often, so keep an eye out! Most raffles only require that you enter, or they may require you to do prompt entries during a specific time frame.  If you win a raffle you'll be given a Celestial Ticket which can be exchanged for a slot of your choice at the Celestial Ticket Exchange!

Celestial Tickets can also be found on extremely rare occasions from certain RNG boxes and gachas that will be released during certain events!

Sparkle by BrowbirdTurning myo items into usable slots

If you have one of the following items, you must turn them into a SLOT before the character can be designed.

Gold MYO items can be transferred to other users while they are items, but once they are turned into slots they can no longer be exchanged with others until the final design is created. Please keep this in mind!

Prize MYO items are free rewards earned through raffles or other RNG means. They are bound to you in all forms, but can be given to another user for free with staff permission or returned to staff to be re-raffled. 


To turn your MYO item into a useable slot, you must select the item in your inventory, check the box next to the slot, and then use the item.

Once your item has been converted into a slot, the item will be removed from your inventory and cannot be turned back into an item.

Universal Dos and Don'ts

Commonly asked about features. Feel free to skip this section unless the things listed here apply to your idea! Remember that these are only meant as rules for official character references and ARPG submissions, what you write for your character are still up to you and you may bend these rules a bit more when it comes to personal stories and roleplay.

Remember that staff always has final say in approvals!

★ Clothing, Armor, and Accessories

✅ You may freely design clothing, armor, and accessories of any style, color, and material. You are allowed to design these at any time and can have a variety of alternate outfits for your character. 

❌ Clothing, armor, and accessories cannot be enchanted, elemental, or used to mimic traits the character does not have. Armor cannot make the character invincible to all attacks, shirts cannot summon magical spectral wings, scarves cannot be magically on fire, a crown cannot levitate to mimic a halo. When using natural accessories like leaves or flowers try to make them clearly accessories rather than appear as if they are growing on the character naturally.

★ Weapons

✅ Your character may have any type of weapon fantasy or based more in realism. Weapons can be made out of any material and can glow or have minor magical or elemental effects. They can be used as a magical focus as well, so your character can shoot spells from a wand or elemental bullets from a gun.

✅ Certain aspects can be used to create temporary weapons. Like shaping metal into a sword or stone into fist weapons. Aspects can also be used to control a weapon's shape or manipulate it's position!

❌ Weapons cannot be heavily elemental or powerful aspect effects by default, so this means swords with a blade made of fire will be turned down, same goes for a knife that stops time when it cuts. These are generally reserved for specific designs.

❌ Weapons cannot be alive by default. This will be possible later though!

★ Enchanted Items

✅ Small simple enchanted items for fun or basic utility are fine for your character. This would be things like a bag of holding, endless teapot, or floating quill that writes as a character speaks. 

❌ Powerful enchantments, elemental effects, or anything that could be used to mimic a trait the character does not have will be turned down.

★ Elemental Effects

❌ Elemental effects cannot be added to a character by default unless they have a trait that specifically allows for it.  "Elemental" refers to things like hair made of water, fire singed fur that's still burning, smoke flowing off the mane, ice forming on the horns, crystal claws, plants growing on the character, see-through body parts, and anything else along these lines. 

If you are unsure if your idea counts as elemental please ask!

When these traits are available they will always have to match the character's aspect.

★ Obscured or Hidden Traits

✅ Traits can be obscured by clothing, hair, or other parts of the character.

Any obscured traits must still have a reference included on the MYO submission. If hair is covering the eyes, please provide a reference of the eyes too!

❌Traits cannot be magically hidden unless it is stated so in special cases. Hiros browbirds cannot hide their wings. If your character does not have a trait visibly on their design then they will NOT be approved with the trait.

★ Shapeshifting

❌ Canon shapeshifting is not currently possible but is planned.

★ Colors and Markings

✅ There is no restriction on body colors by default. Some specific features may have minor color specifications however, such as a browbird's crest.

✅ Most markings are allowed.

❌ Check the specific species info for information on rare and mythic marking appearances and how to obtain them. Stars, constellations, scales, runes, crescent moons, sparkles, and glowing markings are rarity restricted for browbirds and painted satyr. Kitbull information is still a work in progress.

Glowing markings on a browbird should always loosly match at least one crest color. Glow cannot be white without a white crest.

White, black, gray, and very dark/dull colors are not available to browbird crests at default as they are intended to glow in bright colors. Check crest info and rarity before deciding on your crest colors!

Heterochromia is rare. Eyes should not have a white iris with black sclera if it resembles the eclipse eyes trait, but any other combination of colors is fine. 

★ Fur and Hair

✅ You can have any style, length, color, and texture of hair or fur. 

❌ Just keep it reasonable. If it's so ridiculously long where it'd hinder the character's movement and obscures more of the design it may not pass.

❌ Long hair on tails may not pass if it exceeds the tail's rarity max length. Same goes for fur placed in the tail area that tries to mimic a tail.

★ Using ARPG apparel and trinkets in your design

✅ You can use ARPG apparel and trinkets in your design if you currently own the specific items. However please prepare a reference excluding those items if you decide to trade the character or items. This is to avoid confusion from the new owner as using items in this way does not consume them or bind them to the character.

❌ Please do NOT try to transfer characters that you have incorporated official items into the design as if those items come with the character. This would be considered scamming.

★ Sibling and Relative Designs

✅ You can create sibling or relative designs to designs you own or those of a friend's character if you have permission. 

❌ New designs cannot look identical to an existing design. Heavy similarities may also be turned down. Designs should always be able to stand on their own.

★ Designs based off other designs

✅ You can base your MYO off a character design you currently own if you have permission from the original designer and provide a credit link. It must always be explicitly clear which design it was based from. 

❌ Designs based off existing designs that look identical or share many similarities cannot be transferred separately. Doing so will result in a strike. 

Please do NOT heavily based your MYO on an adoptable design you do not own.

★ Media Inspired Designs

✅ You can make designs inspired by media you enjoy.

❌ Designs inspired by media should not look identical to what you have been inspired by. It must still be able to stand as it's own character.

MYO FAQ

VIEW FAQ

✦ I have a slot from before the switch over to the website and it's not on the MYO slot list, where is it?
To keep the number order correct on the masterlist, we uploaded your slot as a MYO character. Please check your character list for your slot, it should have a ticket icon! When you complete your design, you must submit a design edit, you can do this from the character's page. If you do not see the slot you own on the website in your name, please contact us with proof of obtaining the slot.

✦ I don't have a website account and don't plan to make one, what do I do about my MYOs?
At this time you can still submit the old way by sending a note to the DA group. This option is only available if you do not have a website account. If you have a website account you must submit through the website. We will eventually be discontinuing this method however!

✦ I didn't end up using a trait on my MYO, can I hold or transfer it?
No. Any unused traits attached to a slot will be gone for good. Traits cannot be transferred to another character or saved for later. Please only purchase traits you plan to use! (This does not include trait items!)

✦ Can someone else design my MYO for me?
Yes!

Please be aware that sometimes you may be required to make changes if they do not line up with species guidelines and rarity. We do not manage the rates of other artists, so you may be required to pay your commissioned artist extra for changes.

✦ Do MYO slots expire if they aren't used?
Nope, there is no time limit to use your slot.

✦ Can I design my MYO for someone else and then trade it to that person?
This is fine as long as the design can be traded! You can see if a design is able to be traded by checking it's masterlist description. There is no cooldown on trading finished MYOs.

As a reminder, only the person with the MYO slot in their name can post WIPS - this means that the other party being traded the finished design cannot post work in progresses of the design they wish to have approved. If the other party has a design question, they can message a mod or the group directly for review.

✦ Can I base my MYO off of another design I own?
Yes! We just ask that the designs are not traded separately from the original design if you borrow a lot of visual design aspects from it. 

✦ What if staff requests edits?
If an edit is requested, please simply resubmit with your edits! Edits are requested if we feel that part of the design is not consistent with the species or rarities. We are here to help if needed, so if you'd like suggestions for your design feel free to ask!

✦ If I commissioned my MYO design, can I resell it for the commission price?
MYO slots cannot be sold for more than their listed price. This includes vouchers. If there is no listed price on the masterlist they cannot be sold at all. Keep this in mind if you commission another artist!

✦ I need more help for my MYO, where can I go?
You are always free to ask questions in the discord!

✦ It's been a few days and my MYO isn't approved yet - what do I do?
MYO reviews can take up to 7 business days. If you have not received a decision after 7 days, please note the group or contact a moderator.
