Before you can design a Paralogos, you need to choose the unique word they will be based on.
(Reminder that you're allowed to claim a word in a different language if the one you wanted is already taken!)

1) Make sure the word is the correct level of the MYO Book you own. (see The Level System)

2) Make sure the word hasn't been used or claimed yet.

2.1) Check the Masterlist by typing the word in the "Character Name/Code" search bar at the top.

2.2) Check the MYO Slot Masterlist by typing the word in the "Character Name/Code" search bar at the top.

2.3) Check the Legacy Word Claims page.

Please note for animal/plant/other species: common names are required for use unless the common name has been claimed or doesn't exist.

3) Make sure the word isn't Wicked if you're using a regular MYO Book. (see Chapter 4 - Wickeds)

If you want to make sure that your chosen word will be approved or is the correct level, you can submit an inquiry to the Ask Questions Here prompt!
(This is optional, but might prevent you from purchasing a book that you can't actually use.)

If you've checked for all of these cases, you're ready for the next step!


Before you can design a Whiffling, you need to choose the unique scent they will be based on and its Animal Influence.
(Reminder that you're allowed to claim a scent in a different language if the one you wanted is already taken!)

1) Make sure the scent's and Animal Influence's rarity fall into the rarity of the MYO Ticket you own. (see scent categories)
(Reminder that the rarity of a design is defined by its rarest trait, meaning that if you have an uncommon MYO Ticket you can use a common or uncommon scent, and a common or uncommon Animal Influence!)

2) Make sure the scent hasn't been used or claimed yet.

2.1) Check the Masterlist by typing the word in the "Character Name/Code" search bar at the top.

2.2) Check the MYO Slot Masterlist by typing the word in the "Character Name/Code" search bar at the top.

Please note for animal/plant/other species: common names are required for use unless the common name has been claimed or doesn't exist.

If you want to make sure that your chosen scent and/or Animal Influence will be approved or is the correct rarity, you can submit an inquiry to the Ask Questions Here prompt!
(This is optional, but might prevent you from purchasing a myo ticket that you can't actually use.)

If you've checked for all of these cases, you're ready for the next step!


Make sure the species' of the companion / pet falls into the category of the MYO item you wish to use. (see Companion Annex)

Check out the Design Guidelines and Masterlist to get a concept of what is and isn't allowed.

Make sure you can provide a clear, flat-colored image with a transparent background.
(If you're a traditional-only artist, we will accept a clear, flat-colored image with a white background.)

You are allowed to give your Paralogos a Tier 1 Magic Ability upon creation. (see Chapter 3 - Magic)
You can also decide on a Caretaker Status upon creation. (see Annex 5 - Caretakers)
Both of these are optional and can always be added or changed later on via the ARPG.

Caretakers must be human, however, we mean this in that their core must be human.
This means full-robots are not allowed, but futuristic features or various forms of human augmentation may be present in Lingua due to the advanced technology.

Age is not restricted, however, an infant may not be conscious enough to make a formal bond with a Paralogos.
So in terms of "age of awareness", we allow for flexibility and character building where people feel comfortable.
