Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 1 year ago by mewhaku

 

Thanks for sticking with us during this very busy year!

This past month we added some clarifications on how Writing gives awards on the Earning Currency page. We also added some clarifications and a new rule on Co-Owned characters and their rewards too. We hope this helps clarify some systems for rewards!

 


The newest TYOC Prompt Has been released- time is running out for this year! TYOC: Time vs Space! Enjoy! :D A Wicked wind this way comes...

Literature
Some say that managing pets are easy, just got to take care of them. By feeding them, bathing them, giving them water and making sure they are healthy and happy. It's as easy as that... That is if they suddenly didn't get anything extra to deal with. Maybe even like a random magical ability that just popped up out of nowhere! Leading you to maybe have to chase after them or getting them out of the way and away from strangers with knives. That ends up with you pantin...
Literature
“Ah, there!”   Acorn stood back proudly, admiring his handiwork. A large, crinkly pile of dried leaves lay before him, twisting slightly to and fro in the light autumn breeze.    The dark green rake hung heavy in his hands, but there was still more work to be done! After all, Kiana didn’t invite any slackers to her leaf gathering “party!”   He didn’t know the gentle plant-based Paralogos well, but he did know ...

Whiffling Pet Magic is Here!

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 1 year ago by mewhaku

Hey everyone!
We are happy to announce the Whiffling Pet Magic feature is finally here!

Our main NPC character for this is Vardan, who also has a little pet who's gained a magical ability...

2099_jtGORrI9S8.png~2101_jHUQRxzuvg.png

You can read all about it in the new Annex 6 - Pet Magic.
Alongside this new feature, we have also taken a moment to update the Paralogos Magic Annex to be a bit easier to comprehend (and to no longer refer to dA, oops).

We have the new Prompt here for Magic Acquisition in Whiffling Pets. We also have a new Gallery folder for it here!

With this, another chunk of the Whiffling Achievements have become earnable. This should make earning a Maverick Whiffling possible.
We are also happy to announce that we are actively working on getting the Crowns feature ready for release as well, so that soon all Whiffling Achievements will be obtainable! Thanks all for your patience. =D

EDIT: A small note, to keep things more consistent- De-Maginator / Spark of Insight were added to the Ink Market and removed from the Snapshot Shop to make its lineup more consistent with Whiffle Wares' item options!

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 1 year ago by mewhaku

 

A little note here- as of 10/29/22 - we have a small Halloween bonus going on in our Discord Server!

You can check your status on claiming three gifts here. Seems like the Halloween crew got a bit busy this year, but still have some things to share!

Fall is in the air and we here in Lingua welcome it!

This past month we added the Linguan Preserve to the site! And we've seen success with characters and MYO slots finding new homes~ Also, we seemed to have missed adding the Suggestion Box to the site! So far we've just been using the #suggestions Discord Channel. Suggestion mention has been added to the Ask Questions Here Prompt on site.

Also... we are working on another feature to the site- and we hope to release it soon!

The Crossing is Here

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 1 year ago by mewhaku

Hello all! We're bringing a new feature online.

Welcome to The Crossing. The Whiffling Breeding feature!

And so it finally returns with some new tips and tricks, new features and an updated system overall!

We've got a new Breeding Prompt. We've updated the Redesign Page fully too! Now with updated pricing and Whiffling options officially stated! We've been hard at work getting these out, so a major thank you to our Admin Team for all their hard work!

EDIT: As a result, Twin Potion items have now appeared in the Whiffle Wares shop as well!


The Lore section has been fully updated with all recent The Year of Competition Prompts as well, and the headers cleaned up too.

We will have an additional bit of Lore information coming out soon for how Whiffling Crossing works in world, but we hope that the information on the Breeding page will help to sate any curiousity until then!

We also heartily thank tamingofthesandshrew for their service and time in the group, but due to offline busy-ness they have chosen to step down in their position officially. So that is why they are no longer on the Official Artists page. Thank you again Taming!

 

September Spotlight + News

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 1 year ago by mewhaku

 

Hi all! As summer closes with the end of August, we have some information for you all.

EDIT: 9/18 : An Addendum to the News Post! It looks like the Linguan Preserve is now open! Afina is welcoming new residents to the Preserve, and it seems there's already two residents there already. Hopefully this encourages members to find new friends! The Linguan Preserve is a way for members to get some compensation (of Linguan currency) if they wish to surrender a character they no longer wish to own, and also a way for members to adopt a new pre-made character. We are so happy to finally have it created and working! EDIT EDIT: To clarify, we also DO enable MYO Slot surrenders WITH a CONFIRMED word or scent choice!

It has been formally added to the Ask Questions Here prompt that you can have your World of Lingua character appraised, and re-evaluated value wise for reselling. Please do not abuse this feature, but in order to have your character's re-evaluated, please link the character, give any proof you have of commission values, and then mewhaku will review it. Please link artwork as well! Follow up questions happen on Discord.

[Event] Linguan Pride Festival '22 [CLOSED]

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 1 year ago by mewhaku
167_GOKNc1cggN.png



Ah, is it June once again? As you enter the city of Sermos, you immediately notice that it's buzzing with people. Sure, it's usually quite crowded, but this is something else entirely.
There's upbeat music blasting from every second corner, big banners and flags adorning buildings, and big colorful floats driving slowly through the filled streets. You see humans, Paralogos and Whifflings alike running around and laughing; some are carrying big flags, some are wearing them as capes, some are holding signs.

You see a Paralogos, looks like Gingko - running around a brightly colored cape!

He looks over and smiles widely. It is also as if it is a welcome to Sermos' Pride festival! People from everywhere around Lingua travelled here to have a good time. There's so much to see and do.
 


Event Summary

Within the world of Lingua, often in June, there are many festivals celebrating elements of Pride. The residents of the capital of Sermos are known to have boisterous celebrations- citizens, caretakers, Paralogos, and even Whifflings, all coming together to celebrate one another and the multiplicity of their relationships towards others and themselves!

While Paralogos are known to be asexual by their own biology, there are many that have found themselves in various kinds of romantic relationships, and supportive friendships, or who find themselves happier alone or only having a Caregiver Bond.

Whifflings have been rumored to have offspring meanwhile, and find themselves in many kinds of relationships sometimes culminating in children on occasion, though our research is limited on how those situations may come about... it is worth investigating!

What can be known for sure is that Lingua spans wide and ranging groups of all kinds of individuals from every walk of life, and no matter who you are, these boisterous celebrations bring everyone into a joyous and excitable spirit!
 

 


How to Submit Entries

All event entries have to be worth at least 5 of the respective currency and have to depict one or more of the following subjects:

  1. A relationship of whatever kind (romantic/platonic/bond/etc.).
  2. A character's introspect about being alone or what kind of relationship(s) they dream of (romantic/platonic/bond/etc.).
  3. A character being proud, either of themselves or someone else.
  4. A character celebrating or being a part of the festival.

You may submit collaborations, however, every participant has to fulfill the minimum currency requirements in order to be eligible for rewards.
You may also submit monthly prompt, magic progression, or wisdom task entries as event entries, as long as they directly depict at least one of the four above mentioned subjects.

All submissions have to be new works specifically made for this event!

Who can You draw?
Your own Paralogos, Whifflings, Companions, Pets and Caretakers [Note, as of 6/14/22 we do allow AU artwork as well! Such as human forms and similar!]
- The following NPCs/mascotsGinkgo (demiromantic), Rot (aromantic) & Gin (demiromantic)
Other member's Paralogos, Whifflings, Companions, Pets and Caretakers (if their gift art / gift writing status is set to "Yes")

To officially submit an entry for this event, do the following:

  1. Upload the artwork/literature/etc to the correct gallery folder.
    1. If your entry doubles as a monthly prompt, magic, or wisdom submission, submit it to the associated gallery folder.
    2. Otherwise submit it to the Linguan Pride Festival 2022 folder!
  2. Make a new submission to the event prompt based on the instructions in the prompt description.

 

 


Rewards

Every submitted event entry that fulfills the requirements will reward you with one (1) Pride Bag.
