June 2020 Newsletter

Solar Crown

Many changes that are happening are happening in order to make way for future gifts and events within the group. We understand the member base’s frustrations at slow changes and wait times, but setting up events does take time so we urge all members to hold this in mind when expressing their thoughts. Complaints are not suggestions; please make sure any future suggestions offer solutions that will ultimately benefit the group as a whole and that do not bring down any individual members.

Updates & Announcements

  • The following systems will now be run on The Forums in place of DeviantART. Comment Chains on Deviant art for these systems have been CLOSED at this time and threads have reappeared on The Forums in their place. To clarify, the following systems are open on the forums:
    • Crafting
    • Denarii Hub
      • As of June 2020, items applied to the breeding note before rolling will be done at the time of breeding, and will be no longer approved through the Denarii Hub.
    • Group Horse Rentals
    • Hunting
    • Owner Transfers
    • Slot Donation Center Donations & Claims
    • Wilds
  • Artwork must still be submitted to the DeviantART group for all activities. At this moment, we do not have the capacity or funds to host multiple images from all of our users. Because of this, artwork and literature submissions (including, but not limited to: References, Monthly Quests, Regale’s Quests, ETC) must still go through the typical submission process on DeviantART.
  • The Suggestion Box is open for all members to drop their ideas, comments, and suggestions in. The Suggestion Box will remain Anonymous to other users, but it is a requirement and courtesy to list your DeviantART screen name for the admin team. The Suggestion Box will be checked once weekly for the admin team to discuss.
  • A Changelog has been added for the members to know what is being or has been worked on. Please checkout it out in case any issues you may have had has already been addressed. This also will let you know when a certain system has been updated.  
  • There is lots of new Hidden Lore around the website. The Admin Team has decided not to hide some of the upcoming lore and, instead, we have been posting Easter Eggs for members to find. One Easter Egg in particular may even reveal some new players in the upcoming lore…

The Monthly Quest

Ballator of the Month

Admin Spotlight

Our admin feature for June 2020 is skronkodil! Please see below to learn a little about them!

  • Name: skronkodil
  • Admin Job: I’m a part of the amazing design team!
  • First Ballator: When I first got into EB’s, I switched around with a few horses but I count 832 Darius as being my first ballator that I became attached to and kept!
  • Favorite Ballator & Why: Oh man, I have a few favorites, but it’s definitely between 6606 Adonis, 7346 Astraeus, and 8422 Kadra! I have a soft spot for Adonis because he was my first forest and he has a few relationships, Astraeus because he was my first poe, and Kadra because I just love her! 
  • Favorite Ballator Mutation: I think my favorite mutation would have to be zebroid or archetain! I just love those stripes! 
  • Favorite Highlord: I kind of love them all, but Ares has a special spot! I love her fiery nature!
  • How did you discover Ballators: I discovered them during the time that the old group was moving to the new and did a lot of looking and being really fascinated by them! I never joined mostly because I didn’t quite know how, and I spent some time on DA then I left and mostly forgot all about them. I came back a year or so ago and found them again, and I knew I needed to finally join! 
  • Random Fact: I used to do mounted shooting! unfortunately, I haven’t done it or ridden a horse in three years but I really want to do it again one day!
