A tail style with a wild nature to it. This tail style will always specify a variant to indicate what types of tails it features.
This tail is a 5MP tail style. The 5MP does not include MP spent on tail sizing/length.
This tail style allows your nin to have a tail with an aquatic flare to it. (This tail style variant was previously called "Undine"!)
- Aquatic life only, nothing partially aquatic/land like crocodiles, water snakes, etc.
- Expanding on the above, we're trying to avoid reptile/dragon-y tails (we're aiming for fishy/aquatic tails here. If you're aiming dragon that's more aligned with the djinn subtype and we want these two subtypes to be distinct in that regard). Unfortunately this means stingray tails are not allowed. (There is not enough fin present on these!)
- This tail style will follow a similar rule to Hybrid tails relative to multi tail mutations (Twin, Trine, Tetra, Hydra). This means:
- If you want to do singular tentacles starting at the base of the butt, they would be considered independent "tails".
- If you want to "branch" your tentacles by having webbing in between that is allowed but basically it should look very connected/any separations will need to be further down the tail/not at the base.
We're still checking on a few things, specifically:
- Some clarifiers on sea slug tails, since we know of one that exists but it follows the hybrid multi-tail guidelines better than some others.
- Where shellfish/shelled tails sit relative to this/are those ok or not.
- Sea horse tails given without the rest of the sea horse they could fall into an odd place (ie. No fins, looks more like an Imp faenin tail or reptile tail, etc.).
Due to the tail type's broadness much like some crown types this tail type will likely be very case by case if it's not a very well defined finned fish tail. With that in mind, please reach out to us via site ticket or in #design_feedback on our discord (phrased as a general question) with visual examples when possible, if you're at all concerned a tail style that may come up later in an approval. We'll be going based off of what we know and if guidelines are pushed just keep in mind responses will be slow.
- Spellforms are similar to sigil crowns except that they are more structured, and are bound within some type of design border (most often circular, but can have angular boundaries as well). Spellforms can have multiple sections as long as they are all connected, and can contain symbols in both vertical and horizontal alignments.
- Can also contain lines that create specific imagery (stars, moons, etc).
- Example: a single plane (vertical) spellform crown (ELN265)
- (previously "Sprite", split from "Orbital"): Resembles a small glowing orb with faerie wings, not sentient. This type of crown has a bit higher range of movement, and is able to float or rest pretty much anywhere around their elnin's body. Faerie orbs give off a glimmering sort of light and may also display subtle particle trails.
- (previously "Living", split from "Orbital") : Resembles a diminutive living plant or flower. This type of crown is not exactly mobile, but it can bloom if based on flowers, or wilt or shift colors if it has leaves (green to golden, etc following natural seasonal shadings). Flora crowns are actual plants, and can lose petals or provide pollen just like any other type of plant. A fruit crown could, theoretically, be eaten, but it would be exceptionally disturbing for most elnins (not quite cannibalism level weirdness, but it would be like if someone wanted to eat your hair or fingernail clippings).
Resembles a diminutive living creature, not sentient. Can be things like fish, bugs, birds, frogs, etc. Any small, relatively simple animal would be acceptable.
- Rule of Palm: The creature in a fauna crown should be able to fit in the palm of your hand in its real-world equivalent. So something like a deer would obviously not fit in the palm of your hand, even if it's drawn to be miniature it would still not be allowed.
- The designs of the animals should be simplified, rather than true-to-life versions. For example if your creature is a snake, you should not be drawing every scale on it and nictitating eyelids.
- A small fantasy tweak can be added to the creature, but overall it should be a recognizable real-world animal. If you are submitting a fantasy-esque creature design please be aware that, if approved, it would be accepted into the canon of Eyre and considered a part of the World of Eyre. Any fauna crown creature design would be able to be drawn by other community members in prompts and activities.
- This type of crown has some mobility, but can only occupy the space around an Elnin's head (resting on an ear, floating in different positions, etc). It cannot sit on the shoulder or back and must stay around the head. Fauna crowns should not have more than one type of an animal. If there are two they can vary. Both must still be smaller than the Elnin's face/infused crown size-wise.
- Previously known as "Mimic", split from "Orbital"
