General Prompt Entry Rules and Guidelines

Please be sure you're familiar with our basic rules before continuing!
Monthly Regular prompts like this one will have slightly different "Quick Rules" so please read below to familiarize yourself with them!

 


 

This monthly regular prompt's "Quick Rules":

  • Entry Window: The 1st of the month until the last day of the month at 11:59pm PST (Timezone Reference Here).
    • Keep in mind month end dates will vary. We will be granting AP for this prompt based on the timestamp your prompt was submitted by, not when it was approved.
  • To Enter: Use the "Submit" button for this prompt!
  • Completion Reward:
    • [1AP] max per submission per month
      • AP must be granted to an elnin you own, so make sure you have an elnin in mind that you're earning this AP for specifically. AP is a character based currency and therefore must be granted to a character.
  • Qualifying for AP:
    • Either:
      • Draw a standalone background of the Eyre region you would like to earn AP for.
        Or
      • Write 300 words (or more) about a region you would like to earn AP for. Describe in your own words either what aspects this region is known for with imagery or why your elnin would like to visit this region. Be sure to include iconic features of the region or many of the region's general features to make it clear what region they're in.
    • AP is a character based currency meaning you will need to own an elnin to claim currency for this prompt.
    • Information on Regional Affinity and Eyre Regions can be found in the resource here: [Regional Affinity Guide]
    • If you're unsure what to write or draw about about consider:
      • What kinds of activities can you do in the region?
      • What characteristics of the landscape draw elnin to this region?
      • What parts of the region might travelers need to look out for or find unpleasant?
    • You do not need to include your elnin visually or writing wise for this prompt but make sure they are not a focal point. Your elnin should not take up more than 25% of the canvas in Regional Scenery submissions. You're welcome to write a description from the point of view of the elnin you’re earning the AP for or include them if you want, but you’re not required to. Just be sure if you include the elnin you're earning AP for that the focus is the regional imagery description and not dialogue. This just means if you include your elnin we won't mind if it's just a speck on a cliffside in a region like Kyendi but we would ask the elnin not be very large that it becomes the piece's focal point rather than the region.
    • In order verify that your piece qualifies for an Affinity Point (AP), please add the following information to your submission's comment text:
      • Regional Affinity: [ Eyre Region name (e.g. Ahza, Bellmoril, Ealei, Enmir, Faerindell, Kyendi, Palu'au Islands, Silveil, Strynhalde, Zevija ) ]
      • Elnin: [ Link to masterlist entry or their ELN# from the masterlist ]
  • Maximum Entries: [1] per month
  • Other:
    • Props/elnin present will not award EC for this prompt if you decide to include them.
    • Please only submit newly created art. Please do not submit commissioned works or previously-created art or art done on reused bases.
    • As always, non-owners are more than welcome to enter!
    • Shading is no longer being required for prompts but flat colors are still required. Shading is now optional.
    • Collab pieces are not allowed for prompt submissions.
As usual, please feel free to ask questions if anything is unclear. Have fun!!

 



- FAQs -

Q: Are elnin mandatory in Regional Scenery pieces?
A:  No! In fact Regional Scenery pieces we would like to focus on the scenery or settings where elnin are not a focal point. Market scenery, etc. populated with elnin are welcome but no elnin should be a focal point or take up more than 25% of the entire scene.

    • Make sure if you do not own an elnin or you're doing art of someone else's elnin you have permission to draw or write for that character! You can find more information about this on our Gift Art Resources page!
    • An important note for writers: Some owners only allow drawn gift art since writing for characters with little personality info shown on their profile can be difficult. If an owner does not provide a method of contact they are alright being contacted at, or state outright they are alright receiving written gift art, we highly recommend finding a character or owner that does specify they are ok with written gift art. Do not approach users privately via offsite platforms/DMs unless they have been explicit on their profiles they are ok with as much! We don't want anyone feeling uncomfortable or like their personal spaces are being disregarded. If you're feeling stumped but only do writing you can also stop by our discord server (here) and inquire in the #character_connections channel to see if anyone would be alright with a written gift story for a character.
    • Under the "Characters" section, for your gift art submission please add the elnin(s)/kittom(s) depicted in the drawn or written gift art. If you are unable to do so please write that character's "Character Code" (ex. ELN001) in the comments section for your submission so they are identifiable, do not just give us their name, we will soft reject the submission and request that you add the "Character Code" in the comments for your submission.

- FAQs -

Q: Are backgrounds mandatory?
A:  No! Not this prompt specifically.
 
Q: Are all art submissions of elnin/kittoms that belong to someone else?
A: Yes! You should not own the elnin/kittom you are doing gift art of.
 
Q: Can I include my own elnin in the gift art?
A:  Yes, just be sure the elnin you don't own that you are doing gift art for is still the primary subject of a submission/is still 75-80% visible.
 
Q: Can I give my gift art piece a background?
A: Yes! You can submit a background with your gift piece if you wish but we will not be reviewing gift art piece backgrounds for AP.
 
Q: Can I write a story about another user's elnin as gift art?
A:  Yes, but make sure you check if the user is ok with a written story or gift art. A user may have information on their elnin's profile or their own profile relative to what types of gift art they are comfortable with receiving for their elnin. If they do not specify but have marked their elnin as allowing gift art you'll want to reach out to them first, just make sure they are ok being contacted! If they indicate they do not wish to be contacted or do not provide a preferred means of contact via dA or discord you may want to choose a different elnin to do gift art for. Alternatively you can check in the group's discord and if anyone has characters they would be comfortable accepting a gift story for! Some users may not allow written gifts if they are concerned about their elnin's personality being inaccurately portrayed.

A small note as well moving forward.  Due to site prompt submission windows being automated we cannot troubleshoot any potential problems easily if submissions are made last minute. Often staff, specifically prompt staff, are not up at the time things close in an automated way. Any submissions made within the last hour before prompt close we will not make allowances for if they are not in before the deadline, aside from very specific cases like a sitewide outage that impacts the site's entire user base. If there are concerns about internet outages/hiccups/lag/etc. please be sure to not leave prompts last minute. We understand that some things can't be helped but we cannot troubleshoot or try to help with only minutes to spare.

 "Fall Harvest"

#46 Draw or write about your elnin helping with the fall harvest, either gathering or transporting harvested goods!

It's that time of the year again where elnin are all lending a helpful paw to harvest the regional crops and see to it they're transported across Eyre before the miasma grows thick in the months to come. How is your elnin helping out? Are they out in the fields of Faerindell collecting the ripe crops they can find or collecting manaberries from the branches of Yggdrassil in Ealei? Perhaps they're not one to fetch crops and instead lend a paw in transporting them. Regardless every elnin is helping out in some way to bring everything together quickly!


If you're a non-owner looking for an Elnin to draw, or if you'd like to offer your Elnin for use to non-owners, please take a look over here at Our Gift Art Resources Page:

- FAQs -

Q: Are backgrounds mandatory?
A: Yes! A background is required for this month.
 

Q: Is there only harvesting in Faerindell or do some of the other regions have crops I can show my elnin helping out with as well?
A: While Faerindell provides the bulk of the food supply to Eyre, that doesn't mean the other regions don't contribute! You can show your elnin gathering manaberries from Ealei, Gourds and Pumpkins and Mushrooms from Bellmoril, Rice from the rice terraces in Kyendi, Snowberries in Strynhalde, and more!

Q: Can I depict my elnin in other regions for this prompt?
A: Yes, absolutely! There's almost always goods to be transported from Faerindell to the rest of Eyre, but you can depict your elnin travelling through the different regions to get to their destination cities. You can also depict them helping to unload and store imported crops in other regions once the cargo arrives!

Q: What if I only have kittoms? How can I show them helping out?
A: While kittoms are children, yes, that doesn't mean there aren't a ton of things for them to help out with! They can help by bringing water and food to the elnin doing the harvesting, accompanying a caravan to its destination, helping unpack the food from the crates and boxes and prepare it for storage or transit (and sneak off with an apple or two~)

Category: Resonance Quest

Details

The elnins of Enmir enjoy telling many a story about marsh monsters lurking in the murky waters or behind the veils of drooping willows, ready to pounce on an unsuspecting passerby. Of course, to the wiser generation, these are just stories to tell children at night to keep them from roaming too deep into the marshes. Show your elnin braving the marsh monster myth and summarily debunking it. What do they find? Is it a friend that's fallen into some swamp muck and reeds or just a pile of branches with a particularly foreboding silhouette? There is no real monster, but what fright could have sparked the imagination?

Stories revolve around these empty places, people tend to avoid them, no one wants to go through the trouble of tearing them down and so, they sit, collecting dust and rumors alike. Depict your elnin exploring one of these long-abandoned spaces hidden within the town. Does your elnin need to be careful of crumbling floors? Are they frightened of local superstitions? What do they find in this forgotten place?

[RQ-B-2] Mushroom Madness

Category: Resonance Quest

[Act Category: Bravery] [Region: Silveil] [Rank: Adventurer] [Eligible: Adult] — Show details for more info.

Details

The forests of Silveil are a strange and wondrous place, brimming with bioluminescent flora and fauna with a myriad of fascinating properties. You've been asked to retrieve a particular mystical mushroom from within the Shimmerwood for an aspiring potion-maker. Unfortunately, you're a little fuzzy on the details after the long trek out, and as you find yourself scouring the unfamiliar forests for a particular fungus among a thousand or more other similar fungi, you face a dilemma. You couldn't possibly come back empty-handed could you? I mean all these mushrooms probably do similar things right? The Shimmerwood is supposed to be relatively safe to forage, and by all accounts, these mushrooms shouldn't be deadly poisonous... Why don't you just pick one and see what happens when you eat it. Yeah, that's the ticket. Depict your elnin eating a mushroom to see if it's the correct type that their client wants and the resulting effect. Does it have the desired result? Or does something unexpected happen to your elnin?

The client wants a mushroom that, when consumed, causes an individual to become attractive to a particular species of glowworm. Should your elnin choose the correct mushroom, the effect would cause a ring of happy little glowing worm friends to poke up from the dirt around them. An 'incorrect' choice should be one of the following:

  • Your elnin perceives Silveil as experiencing an inexplicable sunrise, the colors of a dawning morning spreading through the evernight.
  • Your elnin momentarily shrinks to the size of a bug, the mushrooms that were underfoot a moment before suddenly looming above them.
  • Your elnin begins to burp butterflies or moths.
  • Your elnin views the world in disorienting shapes and colors (style a section of your piece after cubism or a similar surrealistic style).
  • Your elnin is visited by little green men (yes, aliens).

[RQ-B-3] Storm Glass

Category: Resonance Quest

[Act Category: Bravery] [Region: Ahza] [Rank: Noble] [Eligible: Adult] — Show details for more info.

Details

You find a map on the wall of some local tavern pointing to the famously perilous stormlands of northern Ahza and a big help wanted stamp on an open request for deliveries of storm glass. You've heard of storm glass. Once in awhile a lightning strike will ignite a dense pocket of mana and instantly crystallize it into a very rare form of anima. You can't find this material anywhere else on Eyre, the lightning is special there somehow. Or was it the storm clouds? Something like that, you're not quite sure. In any case. Show your elnin helping this mystery person by retrieving some of these rare shards from the stormlands. Caution, lightning does strike twice in these areas!

The stormlands are in a constant state of precipitation. Whether it's a soft shower or a full-blown storm, it must always be somewhat rainy and cloudy. Storm glass comes in various shades of violet, or can also be partially encased in a crumbly/brittle mineral that looks somewhat like sand or bone.

Details

What does your little elnin want to do when they grow up? How does this affect them? Have they apprenticed themselves with another elnin? Do they spend time stealthily observing other folks at work? Do they carry around sticks swinging them heroically at every passerby? Show your elnin preparing themselves for their bright future.

If you did the old "Prologue" journey prompt and the art is already in the quest folder (prior to December 12, 2019)  then you may use that as credit for this quest for the elnin you used. You can claim the AP for it as well long as the region you're requesting fits with the art you submitted.

Details

Many elnins pick up a habit of hoarding "precious treasures". Does your elnin have a collection of some sort? Do they collect actual treasure or have they become attached to things that are of... honestly questionable value [ie, items that any sane individual would consider junk]. How do they take care of their collection? Is it proudly displayed in their home, or kept safe in a hidden chest somewhere out of sight?

[RQ-C-1] Shrines of the Elder Trees

Category: Resonance Quest

[Act Category: Character] [Rank: Nestling / Villager] [Eligible: Adult | Kittom | Flashback] — Show details for more info.

Details

Each region in Eyre is home to a single unique Elder Tree, a colossal wonder of nature immense enough to house an entire sprawling city in its boughs. Elder Trees are said to spring from the roots of Yggdrasil itself, and that they bind the world of Eyre together to keep the fractured lands from floating apart and being lost in the Boundless. These trees have special meaning for the entire elnin race, a connection rooted deeply in their affinity for mana. Depict your elnin visiting a shrine dedicated to that region's tree (try including the tree itself somewhere in the backdrop). These shrines can take many forms, sometimes they are simple things found in the wild, stones carved with images of the region's tree or small wild gardens hung with charms and offering bowls. In the bigger towns there are often carefully tended and decorated trees, miniature likenesses of their elder counterpart, surrounded by offerings from the locals.

For this Act, please consider Yggdrasil as Ealei's Elder Tree. This Act may be difficult to complete at this time, as we do not currently have comprehensive visual guides for individual elder trees. Please see the Map of Eyre for a small cue for each region's tree and feel free to ask questions if you would like more details. We will update this Act with more information as soon as we can!

Category: Resonance Quest

[Act Category: Character] [Rank: Nestling / Villager] [Eligible: Adult | Kittom | Flashback] — Show details for more info.

Details

Depict your elnin appreciating their hometown. Perhaps they still live there, and they stop to admire the reliable old bridge that bears them over the local river every day. What does their home look like? Are there any features of the land or buildings that they think of fondly? Do they have a secret place or a favorite haunt? If they've moved away from home, oftentimes a place where they grew up will still hold a special place in their heart. You may choose to complete the act as a memory of earlier times, perhaps a depiction of your kittomhood home, or the places they liked to play growing up.

[RQ-C-1] Fae for Your Thoughts

Category: Resonance Quest

[Act Category: Character] [Rank: Nestling / Villager] [Eligible: Adult | Kittom | Flashback] — Show details for more info.

Details

Feyfolk permeates the wilds throughout the far reaches of Eyre. Many elnins look to the fae for blessings throughout the year, but some try a bit harder than others to angle for specific things. To start out, most would seek a faerie ring (typically a circle of mushrooms but it could be a circle made of anything natural- butterflies, stones, bones, different plants, etc). Once found, tradition suggests you silently leave your gift within the ring and then depart. What does your elnin offer to the fae to get their message across without speaking? Depict your elnin offering something that relates to the sort of blessing they would like to receive. For example, if your elnin would like increased field production, perhaps they offer a very tasty crop or a pile of dirt? [Of course, you should probably be careful, who knows if offering dirt will send the right message...]

[RQ-C-1] Festive Flora

Category: Resonance Quest

[Act Category: Character] [Region: Faerindell/Bellmoril] [Rank: Nestling / Villager] [Eligible: Adult | Kittom | Flashback] — Show details for more info.

Details

Elenion' faerie shrouds are highly sought after for their beauty and vibrant colors. In fact, there are even special festivals revolving around this regional treasure that are held throughout the year and are popular with tourists and locals alike. At these festivals, you can pick your own flowers and have them enchanted by the visiting druids to preserve them in an almost timeless state for many many years. Your elnin has gathered their own bouquet of these delicate prizes during one such festival. What do they do with their arrangement? Do they aim for a classic floral decoration and preserve them in a vase? Nothing like a long-lasting splash of color to liven your home! Or do they arrange them with something more deliberate in mind? A flower crown for a friend? A simple hair adornment? Perhaps a draping floral boa to compliment a favorite cape. Depict your elnin with their finished faerie shroud creation!

Contains a few inspirational images for faerie shroud visuals: [link], but any type of hanging flowers in bright multi-colors are fine!

This prompt can be tweaked to instead have your elnin create a similarly preserved item from the iconic red/gold/orange flora found in the Bellmoril region, this time aided by local wizards who are particularly proud of their home region's signature foliage.

[RQ-C-1] Harvest Heist

Category: Resonance Quest

[Act Category: Character] [Rank: Nestling / Villager] [Eligible: Adult | Kittom | Flashback] — Show details for more info.

Details

The local crops are ripening up nicely and you can't wait to cook up your favorite meal using them! The problem is you're missing a key ingredient... Second problem, the only elnin nearby that produces it is very grouchy and doesn't like to share! How does your elnin go about procuring the ingredient? Do they haggle? Maybe win the farmer over with their charms? Or do they sneak into the field like a naughty hobbit and attempt to covertly acquire this prized morsel... Show your elnin solving this obviously serious problem [make sure to include the ingredient they're after in the image as well!].

This act is typical of [☼ Faerindell] but you may adjust it to suit other regions if you make sure that the ingredient you're after is appropriate for the region you're in!

[RQ-C-3] A Peculiar Self

Category: Resonance Quest

[🔷] [Act Category: Character] [Rank: Noble] [Eligible: Adult | Kittom] — Show details for more info.

Details

[🔷 This is an Advanced Act]

Occasionally when an elnin achieves a certain level of spiritual awareness [sometimes intentionally, sometimes by accident] they can experience a special type of vision, a visitation from an otherworldly or fantastical version of themselves. Some say these phantasms are reflections of their soul in some alternate world, made visible by opening the mind's eye to other realities. Others say they're a representation of one facet of an elnin's inner self, a projection from the subconscious. In any case, these visions only occur when an elnin is in a state of heightened spiritual awareness, generally whilst in a secluded or otherwise peaceful place [so probably not in the middle of a busy street]. Depict your elnin having one such vision. What does this other self look like and how do they react to it?

Let your imagination run free on this one! There are no guidelines on what your peculiar self should look like [aside from please keep things PG, no gore/nudity/etc]. If your elnin is experiencing the vision as they are attuning to nature, you could theme it appropriately: a mer-form for an ocean voyage or a graceful dryad if they're meditating in the deep woods. You could also theme it on faerie lore, or perhaps this alternate form is monstrous? Just remember that this isn't true shapeshifting, these are personal visions, and the phantasms should not interact with the environment or be visible by other creatures.

This act also makes for a nice followup to the "Pilgrimage" act I think!
