Hello! Welcome to the suggestions page!

Here you can offer us suggestions on what you'd like to see added next or changes to existing features.
COMMENT BELOW to leave a suggestion!

★ Please keep in mind the following when writing your suggestion:


The website is still a work in progress. There are many areas that are unfinished and being actively revised and worked on. We are a small team that are learning as we go and still very new to having a website and a community of this size. We are aware that many pages are incomplete and are actively working on them!

Make sure your post is constructive. If you don't like a rule/mechanic/idea/ect explain why and offer solutions

Consider how others might feel, while you may dislike something why may others not want it changed?

Suggestions should be fairly small in scope. We cannot program full minigames/video games, nor could we entirely overhaul the site's visuals and mechanics.

Avoid suggestions that ask to increase payouts, make rare items easier to obtain, or to give away more free design's/MYO slots/gifts. Exceptions to this are balance concerns IE: one art style being vastly easier to earn currency with or sugestions of rewards you really want to see.

Avoid suggestions of entire new plots/storylines in detail (Feel free to tell us what you'd like to see theme-wise, locations, mentioned storylines, or NPCs you want to see more of though!). We often have plans for NPCs and their stories and will directly ask when wanting input on story direction!

We do not mind suggestions for contests, but we do want to be careful with them and avoid asking for a lot of "free work" from members such as banner or item design contests. I hope this is understandable!

★ Suggestion Policy:


While we appreciate all feedback we are not guaranteed to implement any suggestions offered

If we make use of a suggestion offered by you we are not required to credit you when it is implemented. 

We will remove any posts that are harmful towards other users/staff or could be interpreted as targeted at specific people. If you have concerns about a user or staff member please contact an admin privately.

By posting here that means you are okay with staff or other users responding to your comment, please be respectful when discussing with others and try to see both sides of a presented issue.

Staff is not guaranteed to respond to your suggestion, however we do read all of them and take every perspective into account.

Everyone is different and prefers different things! We cannot please everyone, but will do our best to make improvements when we can.

★ Disclaimer:


There are certain things we will not be adding. While we understand this may be disappointing we unfortunately will not be changing this! We may add more to this list at any time.
Free MYO event -- IE: where free MYOs are openly given away to everyone in a short timespan, this would cause a heavy strain on staff.
MYO contest -- We hosted one in 2016 and will not be holding another contest of this type or scale!

Click for To Do List
All things we're currently working on, planning to add in the future, or would like to add. This list is presented in no particular order. You are free to offer suggestions or ask questions relating to things on this list!

No ETA on when these features/changes will arrive! Most are in their concept phases as they were put on hold for the website move and website adjustments.

We may scrap any of these ideas at any time!


★ Future Prompt activities
New prompt: Monthly art submission -- Allows each user to submit an illustration or writing once a month to earn standard payouts. Gift art allowed.
Returning Feature: Stelle Inn -- Reworking. Will allow users to submit roleplay summaries once a month to earn a set amount of currency.
New Permanent Quest: Galstrod's Goods (1 prompt) -- Will be the new way to unlock the shard shop, will reward a good amount of shards when completed.
New Permanent Questline: Companion Quests (3 prompts) -- Do a questline with your companion. Completing it will allow you to unlock a second companion slot for prompts upon first completion. 
New Permanent Questline: Aspect Quests (2 prompts) -- Questline that explores each aspect, can be done once for each aspect a character has. 
New Permanent Story Quest: Hiros (3 prompts) -- Questline for hiros lore. Story is being written slowly! Will reward the hylos relic. We're working on making sure this is balanced so the item does not lose its value.
Painted Satyr Grove Quests (3 prompts) -- Explore your satyr's history and connection to their grove alignment. Unlock an animal alt form and grove traits! Grove traits will also be added to the galstrod shop when this quest goes live. 
Gathering Quests (??? prompts) -- There will be 1 prompt for each gathering zone. You only are required to do the prompt once to gather from the zone. 
Special Challenge Event (??? prompts) -- A challenge in a set time period that will allow non-owners to get a MYO slot if completed.
★ Features
Automatic Crafting -- You will no longer have to submit a claim to craft items. Will overhaul some parts of crafting and adjust recipes when this happens as well.
Gathering -- Will allow you to gather a few crafting materials. 
Battles -- Allows everyone to work together to bring down an opponent.
Character comments -- Allows designs to have a comments section
Onsite SG Calculating -- Calculating will always be manual due to the nature of every piece being different. However we want to eventually have an easy onsite way to calculate it. (perhaps by simply checking boxes during a submission)
Way to easily apply apparel and trinkets to your submissions

★ Traits and Species
Condense traits further for easier navigation, clean up existing traits
Add fleshed out info to all trait descriptions
Finalize trait references for all species, currently focused on painted satyrs
Rework all kitbull traits to be more clear
Trubulls
Scarabim will eventually be added. Would like to do this when painted satyrs and kitbulls are around 90% done.
ASPECT INFO
★ Items
Get all item descriptions up to date, there's a few with old info
New item: Rare Companion Upgrade -- Turns a companion rare which allows you to draw offbase art and/or add any special features to it. 
• Custom Companion -- Allows you to submit any type of creature to be an official companion added to the game.
New items: Type traits -- Adds type traits to a character that already has the type. (such as adding a new ancient trait to an ancient).
New items: Type change -- An item for each type. These will likely be added when the traits have visuals and will be difficult to obtain. 
New items: Grove traits -- An item for each grove alignment
New item: Species Form -- An item that lets your character have an alt form of a different species, both can be used canonly.
New item: Add Crest/Add Material -- Adds a second crest or a second material to a common or uncommon browbird crest/satyr mask.
New item: Add Crest 2/Add Material 2 -- Adds a third crest/third material to a browbird or painted satyr.
New item: Modify Crest/Modify Mask -- Very tentative. Will need to be considered carefully. We still want crests and masks to be a meaningful choice.
Weapon items -- Enchanted weapons. Will likely add in when we have a way for them to be used
★ Info
Update outdated info + Revise the formatting so old info reads better.
Lore entries for known locations, NPCs, deities, canon holidays, summaries of past events, and more!
• Starter Guide to help newcomers 
★ Bugs/Issues
n/a

A shop section that only sells raw crafting materials. Would almost surely be marked up but would be cheaper (in most cases) than buying a box. This could be really useful for members who only need one item to craft something but it's a rare item so the chances of them getting it in the crate are super low.

Tl;dr - Raw crafting material shop for stargold so you dont have to rely on the crafting crates for specific items

Bouncing off of Mel's previous suggestion, I think apparel items similar to the Runefrost and Starsear cloaks to account for other aspects would be super awesome! I don't know if something like that would be planned for the future but it'd be cool to see something like a plant cloak for Wood aspect or a cloak with armor built into it for Stone/Metal for example so that non-Frost/Fire characters can get a little bonus too! Thank you for all of the hard work and ARPG updates thus far!!

Another suggestion:

How about a repeatable crafting or exploration quest where you can get extra items from after completing the main 3-tier crafting prompt? Once a month or every other month seems fair for the active folks! It would be a nice way to accrue more materials, especially since after you finish the main set, you really can’t get any materials through quests anymore.

General statement: it’s very difficult to purchase things in-game when there is very little that is providing currency! Especially if you have a low character count and don’t have any more quests to do! We didn’t get any income on the mini winter event, and after a stale year, there really isn’t much. More repeatable quests in general would be really helpful for those folks, and definitely encourage more participation I feel!

It would be really nice to have a sea cloak type of apparel item amongst the others! I know oceanic is a pretty popular theme and it'd be great for a summer drop. I'd love to have one for using with my sea satyr

Or maybe... sea spear/trident? I know a cloak might seem cumbersome for swimwear but just some ocean themed apparel item

I've noticed when getting small things abt my submissions approved its a bit of a long process.
Going intot eh questions chat, asking for help, waiting for that to be approved, and then submitting it only to be told i need to fix smth else completely different
I think that a place in the discord where you can ask for help on submissions and stuff would make it easier to get prompts done and approved 90% of the time
Mods could give their suggestions so the piece gets approved and that way their dms also wont be cluttered.
I know there arent many people who ask for help. but i think if something like this were be in the discord, new and old users would deffinetly use it
