March Spotlight

Posted 6 months ago :: Last edited 6 months ago by Mouse

 

What a month! We've had multiple updates since the previous- 

Whifflings joined the site, we now have a Gallery, and we have an ongoing Whiffling raffle set to end upon the Spring Equinox.

This is also Paralogos' 6th Anniversary this month (March 7th is the official date), so we're looking to accomplish even more this month! Keep your eyes on the News and our ongoing endeavors to also get Whiffling MYO slots up and running with their shop too.

An additional note, member Numbunny has joined our ranks officially as an Official Artist, coming from their position in the older Whifflings group. Please welcome them to the team! They alongside our current team of Assistants and Artists will be working across both species. 

 


The new Monthly Prompt has been released: A Mystery Blossoming

Going forward Spotlight Members will span picks from either Paralogos and/or Whiffling participation.

Thank you again for making this group a better place.
You will be awarded a membership card:

Members who draw or write about this Paralogos through the month of March will get a bonus +3 flat INK

The owner of the Spotlight Paralogos will not gain this additional bonus,
but are still rewarded the normal ink from having someone else draw your owned Paralogos.


Once Whiffling MYO slots are opened, we will also be showcasing a Spotlighted Whiffling character each month. How exciting!

 

Finally... we honor:


This is a collection of some of the wonderful artworks and writing that have been submitted to our group the last month.
Thank you all for your contributions! There were so many wonderful things uploaded this past month! Please view our Gallery for more.

Part of this month's submissions were still on DeviantArt, and we invite you to take a look on that site! We now can use the website's Gallery thumbnails to automatically link to our members' uploaded works on site however. Whiffling art & literature will also be featured here!

 
 

Please visit LogosLibrary to see who is still up for sale in general. We still have Larick up from the recent GA set, and also some Whifflings From Azelforest
For a visual guide, you can visit the Sales Folder on DeviantArt for direct links to adopt sets, and now we also have the Sales page on site too!

 


And finally, we'd like to make special mention of the birthdays this coming month of March-
bio-zuzu , Provie , Iron , Inkcess .

Happiest of birthdays to our members celebrating this month! If you haven't signed up yet, please do as you'll get a gift!

Note: Birthday Sign-Ups are now done via Claims.
For more information on how to use this feature, please refer to the User Guide.

Finally, Galleries!

Posted 7 months ago :: Last edited 7 months ago by Mouse

The Gallery is finally here! The time of having to submit art via dA has found an end!
This also means that you can now earn Bottlecaps for Whiffling artwork!

From now on, every member who is registered to worldoflingua.com has to upload their art to the gallery in order to earn the respective currencies for both themselves and potential receivers of their art!
Meaning, if you f.e. draw gift art for another member, you will upload the piece and both of you will receive the earned currency automatically - no need for the receiver to also submit it anymore!

If you receive art from off-site artists, please submit it to the Off-Site Currency Rewards prompt the way we previously had you submit every piece.
Note that this is only for art made by artists who are not registered to worldoflingua.com!

For detailed information regarding how the new features work, please refer to the User Guide!

 


How to submit art/writing to the gallery

 

  1. Go to the gallery and select the folder that your art belongs into.
  2. Click on the “+ submit” button.
  3. Upload the art file and/or paste the text in the “text” section.
  4. Add a title (& optionally, a description for the piece).
  5. Add all the displayed characters in the “characters” section via their character codes (f.e. PARA-01-Ginkgo or WHIFF-100-Ginkgo).
  6. Select the exact type of art in the “Group Currency Awards” section (f.e. “Digital Art / Clean Lines / Full Body / Colored / Shading” for a shaded digital fullbody artwork).
  7. If you’ve drawn at least one (1) character for someone else: add their website username(s) in the “other participants” section & specify their role(s) (f.e. “gift for”).
  8. If the piece was a collaboration: add your collaborator(s) in the “collaborators” section & specify their role(s) (f.e. “lineart” or “colors and shading”)

 

 


Magic / Wisdom / Monthly Prompt Submissions


You will still have to submit your art to the Magic Progression / Wisdom Tasks / Monthly Prompt prompt after uploading it to the gallery in order to get your bonus Ink rewards and/or get your magic/wisdom officially added/approved.
You now have to use the link to the gallery submission instead of a dA link in the URL section.

 


Thank you all for your patience!
This is not a full release of Lorekeeper 2.0.0 and we hope to see continued updates and improvements for the site! We are still working on the Whiffling Design Guide, so Whiffling MYOs are not live just yet. We are looking towards opening the Whiffling Store now that bottlecaps can be earned, so stay tuned! You'll be able to buy Whiffling MYO slots and all sorts of goodies through the Store. We are so excited to finally have the Gallery feature on site!

If you have any questions at all, feel free to ask on our discord server, via our Ask Questions Here prompt or in the comments below!

Whiffling Log Transfers

Posted 7 months ago :: Last edited 7 months ago by Mouse

Hello all!
As part of our ongoing Whiffling integration on site, we are happy to announce that we have uploaded a wonderful assortment of items alongside the Whiffling currency, known as Bottlecaps (Caps for short!). Whifflings are known to collect these and other small objects as currency amongst themselves, and they do help to clean up many areas this way. They make many sorts of concoctions and potions that change their appearances as well.

We welcome you all to grab 1x Free Whifflebag from the Welcome Shop as an introduction to their system!

 


We already transferred the items/currencies from Whiffling Logs of all users that are registered on this site.
Users not currently registered on site are able to submit their Whiffling Log to the new Record / Log Transfers prompt! (this also doubles as the new place for Paralogos members to transfer their Library Records!)

Whiffling Achievements from the older system will not be implemented as of yet, but we are making a list of who has earned what while doing item/currency transfers and will add them officially when the achievement system goes live.

 


This is the first step of many on our path of moving all Whiffling ARPG features on-site.
We intend on implementing earning currency for Whiffling art submissions, MYO submissions and the Whiffling Item Shop next!

Thank you all for your patience!

An Addition to WoL

Posted 7 months ago :: Last edited 7 months ago by Mouse

As many of you may or may not be aware, the Paralogos group is entering its 7th year of existence.

Our anniversary is March 7th!

Ahead of this, while we still await certain Lorekeeper updates for additions such as galleries, we can announce something quite exciting for all of us here at World of Lingua, and that is the formal addition of the Whifflings closed species as a character type to join Paralogos in the World of Lingua.

whifflingsplash.png


This does come with many shifts and changes to the Whifflings species, however no existing designs are invalidated or changed. Mostly rarity shifts, and different scent-theme categories.

This also does not change any pre-existing Paralogos lore, or Paralogos characters. Whifflings are known to interact with Paralogos, and can also have Caretakers (in a future addition!) but they have their own stories.

Over the next month, you’ll see Whifflings join our Masterlist, and their Companions also becoming interconnected to Paralogos Companions and their lore over time, they’ll fit into the world nicely!
None of the Whifflings ARPG aspects will be brought over to the site yet, this is still in the set up phase.


We thought this may be an exciting update ahead of our anniversary, and hope you will enjoy discovering them in this new World!

Stay tuned for further information as always, and not to worry, Paralogos ongoing updates and projects are still the priority.
This set-up is mainly happening while we wait on certain aspects to get updated on our site’s backend.

February Spotlight

Posted 7 months ago :: Last edited 7 months ago by mewhaku

 

Just a quick note here that we added a more concrete definition for complex backgrounds to the Earning Ink page.
(Our guidelines didn't change, we just wanted to be more clear on what a "scenery" entails!)

Also! We've got some more lore for you that'll be released sometime this week, so look out for that!

EDIT: We finished a bit sooner than we expected! Please enjoy reading Chapter 9: Magic Control.

Furthermore, we are still awaiting the arrival of Lorekeeper 2.0.0 before we add features like Galleries and similar. Thank you for your patience!

 


The new Monthly Prompt has been released: Fortune and Friendship

2020 Victory Raffle

Posted 8 months ago :: Last edited 8 months ago by mewhaku

Updates at the bottom of the post!

As you finish your celebrations as this harrowed year ends- you hear a burning or whistling sound... crackling and suddenly, a crash.

Roughidea Copy by mewhaku

"HA! You guys thought you all had it made huh? That you could just assume Victory... over 2020."
"Well I'm the victor here! You'll have to get past me first!"

victoryscreech_copy.png

"I'm Victory! And you better know that you'll have to finish my challenge before you can just waltz into 2021."

 

"I challenge you all to a raffle... and we'll see who the true holder of Victory is."

 

 

 

A Paralogos has challenged you to enter a special raffle, for celebrating or, in their words, claiming victory over the last year. And it looks like it may lead you to them lending you their aid as well in the future perhaps- maybe some other prizes as well?

You can enter Victory's raffle by commenting on this news post below- tell us one Victory you had in 2020!
This doesn't have to be something major, just something you're glad you accomplished or continued doing!

"I think you may be a little dismayed if you don't indulge me here a bit..." the Paralogos snickers.
You wonder what they mean.

It appears Victory has rolled out some results-

Seems that one of you has somehow triumphed here... I guess I'll have to investigate you further Deyan. I have a few things for 4sparkles, Inkcess, and Numbunny too. Smell ya' later!

 

 

 

January Spotlight

Posted 8 months ago :: Last edited 8 months ago by Mouse

A Wicked raffle has been posted on New Year's Eve that runs until January 7th! Consider joining it if you haven't already!

Furthermore, we are currently waiting on the big Lorekeeper 2.0.0 update to introduce several very exciting website updates (f.e. galleries!). There are certain issues that can't be resolved until we're on the newest version and we might encounter a few new bugs in the time of transition, so we ask for your patience in that regard!
We'll 100% make an independent news post when all updates are complete, so no worries =)

 


The new Monthly Prompt has been released: ...And Looking Forward!

Lost Records - Event Hub

Posted 10 months ago :: Last edited 8 months ago by Speedy

[Scroll to the very bottom of this news post to see the conclusion of the event!]

 
LR_splashart.png



"THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT.
The Paralogos registration system has experienced an unforeseen downtime last night that resulted in medium to severe levels of data corruption. While the circumstances are under investigation, all services that require data changes are being put on hold. If you seem to be affected by the corruption, please contact us via the relevant forms on the company website. We ask for your patience and understanding."


The pre-recorded announcement fades out in the completely empty hall of Sermos' Paralogos office. You just came here to make a small change to one of your records, but it appears that this will have to wait for another time. But before you can even turn to leave, you hear an electronic "oh-oh" sound and then someone addresses you: "Hello, I'm Jave. Are you part of the reinforcements sent by our associates at PALS?"

You turn around and spot a large Paralogos with a tiny, screaming one a few steps away. They look at you with tired eyes and add much quieter: "Please say yes, I'm gonna lose my mind if I have to get back in there empty-handed."
You make a thinking sound, which the Paralogos takes as confirmation. "Great! Let's get you to base so you can get briefed."
 


Event Briefing

It was discovered that the Paralogos registration records #280 to #289 have been completely lost to some very strange data corruption phenomenon. Now the database admins are trying their hardest to figure out who these ten Paralogos could possibly be - so they can make sure that the records are fixed asap!
But for that, they need your help!

Over the course of the next few weeks, Jave and their team will share objectives on this page, which outline the specific steps they need you to take in order to help identify the lost Paralogos.
There will be rewards for each objective, including a special bonus reward for completing the bonus objective each objective comes with.
This special bonus reward is a raffle ticket for a very valuable prize that will be raffled off when all ten records have been restored (so at the end of this event).
(Meaning that the more bonus objectives you complete, the better your odds of winning the big final prize!)

Note that only the "Encrypted Data" objective will require you to draw. The other four objectives require you to think more than anything else!

Disclaimer: This is a single-player event, meaning please do not share or discuss specifics about objective solutions!
You are free to talk about the event or objectives in general, but we ask you to f.e. not share scavenger hunt locations.

Conclusion

807_juFUXnWQTS_PAKadmgYNGGcBym_full.png


A huge crowd has gathered in Sermos' Paralogos office. The deadline that the strange two-headed Paralogos had given everyone has now since passed and it appears that half the city wants to know is was going to happen next.
Mystery walks up to the crowd from seemingly nowhere and opens their arms theatrically, their voice booming: "Greetings again, everyone! We're so glad to see all of you so entranced with our performance!" - "We, too, were very excited to watch you all solve our riddles." - "And you did!" - "You did, indeed. So as promised, we are releasing the five mysterious Paralogos into your city!" - "They don't have anyone, so try to look out for them, alright?"
The five Paralogos step out from behind the towering Mystery, a confused look on their faces, before they disappear into the crowd, aimlessly.

"Okay. That out of the way-! We've watched you all closely." - "Very closely." - "And we determined several of you to be fit to be our assistant." - "Ohh, but we can only use one of you. So we decided-" - "We decided, through our mysterious ways, on just one. bonnbonn. You are the chosen one." - "We will come into contact with you on our own terms." - "To everyone else: Thank you for your enthusiastic cooperation."
They bow to the crowd and call with their combined voices: "That will be all."
Seconds later, they are nowhere to be found. The only thing left of them are scattered pieces of paper everywhere and small purple tokens that just appeared in everyone's hands. How did they do that?

 

Encrypted Data - Results

Winner: Scarletwind
Second Place: Iron
Third Place: PromptoBeans

Congratulations!

The five Paralogos have been identified and are now available as OTA adopts!

December Spotlight

Posted 9 months ago :: Last edited 9 months ago by Mouse

Based on a community suggestion, we've now added magic and wisdom tiers as traits to every Paralogos masterlist entry!
This means that you can now filter the masterlist by magic and/or wisdom tiers - here is f.e. a filter with all Paralogos that have tier 6 magic =)

We also still have our ongoing event, Lost Records!

 


The new Monthly Prompt has been released: Looking Back...

New Report Feature & More

Posted 10 months ago :: Last edited 10 months ago by Mouse

Greetings everyone!
As a follow-up to the website news mentioned on the last news post, we are now here to share the first few new features with you!

 

You can now not only share whether you're open for gift art for your character, but also for gift writing!
These can be searched for independently via the masterlist search function.

Additionally, color-coded icons have been added to all masterlist entries that show you the character's gift art, gift writing and trading status on a glance!

(The gift writing option was actually already added with the last update, but it somehow went... missing... from the last news post... weird!)
 

You can now have your discord, toyhouse, twitter and instagram accounts linked on your account via little icons next to your username - see mewhaku's profile for a live example!
These can be set via your account settings.

 

We now have a site-wide reports feature! With this, you can report both bugs and user-generated content.
You can file reports via the bug reports page linked in the navbar under "browse" as well as in the footer of every page!

When filing bug reports:

Please be aware that all bug reports are made public so they can be checked by all members to avoid having one bug reported several times.
A list of all reported bugs can be found on the bug reports page.
We ask you to please use this system to report all bugs you encounter so we can fix them asap!

When filing reports against user-generated content or behavior:

All non-bug reports are private, meaning they can only be seen by you and the administrative staff (mewhaku, Mouse and Speedy).
You can report users via the report icon on the upper right corner of their profile, character profiles via the icon above the profile description box, and comments via the icon on the bottom right of each comment.
All of these can also be reported via the regular bug reports page - just make sure to add the correct link in the URL box and to not mark it as a bug!

 

Again, thank you all so much for your patience!
These updates, as always, are reflected in the User Guide.
If you have any question or feedback at all, feel free to contact us via the Ask Questions Here prompt! =)
