Welcome Guest,
Pardon our ads; they're necessary to keep this lovely site running. Thank you for your understanding! Many sites boast a wonderful memberbase, but here at Yavania we pride ourselves on our community. We work hard to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere, making sure every member and guest is greeted and included in the fun, both OC and IC. Our staff is active, friendly, and always available. Each season we have a lot of fun OC activities that give our players fun/generous rewards, such as raffles, word searches, and crosswords. IC we have many festivals and site-wide events. Check out our Overview Guide and Character Creation (listed to the right) to see what we offer! You can make a vast spectrum of creatures, including but not limited to wolves, tigers, panda bears, leopards, African wild dogs, clouded leopards, ball pythons, and eagles! If the magic system seems overwhelming, don't worry. You do not have to build a character with magic. If you want to, however, we're available to help! Just drop into cbox. ♥

ITEM DESCRIPTIONS

Have questions about the items above? Read below! If you do and still have questions, contact a Staff member.

Item
Description
All Jewelry
Jewelry can be anything natural, metal, or made of gems. You can buy jewelry for another character or even buy it for a new character before they come into Yavania. Jewelry does not die when a creature does; it can be passed on. When you purchase jewelry, please let staff when your character to find the jewelry (left by the Avatars) HERE and provide a picture of what you had in mind for it.
All Unique Magic
There are many unique powers that can be infused into jewelry or bestowed upon the character themselves. See this page for more information regarding them. You can choose to have each power placed upon a separate piece of jewelry or upon one.
Breeding Upgrade
This upgrade is useable once. With this upgrade, your character is guaranteed to successfully have children. Only one of the parents needs to have this upgrade. One dice will be rolled to determine the number of children your character will have. If the number is 1-4, one child will be added to the litter. If the number is 5-6, that will be the number of children your character has. This upgrade does not work for hybrid children. In order to use it, you must have it purchased and validated before the attempted breeding takes place.
Diminutive Trait
These traits allow your character to be smaller than is normally allowed on Yavania. Your character may be smaller than is normally allowed by up to 15 pounds and 2 inches. Please note that foxes cannot be smaller than 1.5lbs, this doesn't work on small creatures, and this trait does not apply to flying birds.
Distinct Shape
Your character has an unnatural, distinct shape in their fur, such as a crescent moon, a heart, a teardrop, a star, etc. This is not necessary for spots, zebra stripes, or other natural patterns (even if the patterns aren't natural on your character's species). Please keep in mind that if your character has albinism, the marking must be caused by albinism. Vice versa for melanism. If you wish to get around this, you must buy the Rare Color Pass as well.
Elemental Jewelry
Have you already picked both of your elements but you wish you had a third? Look no further! With this buy-able you pick a piece of jewelry (necklace or rings work best) to have infused with an element of your choice. With this jewelry, you get the base power for free. Then, to get the additional levels, you buy them normally (100 AP each level). You still have to train these powers and get a point pool. You can do this with multiple elements. One element per jewelry item.
Escape a Spar
This item can be used once per purchase and can be used inside or outside of the Arena. Inside the Arena, it means you do not have to answer the call and you do not get penalized. Outside of the Arena, it means you automatically escape from the match you are currently in. This means you must use it while the fight in in progress. You may NOT use this to make an escape attempt, as a hostage, automatically successful. To use this escape, you must have it purchased before the spar begins. To use this item outside the Arena, post IC to make an escape attempt and mention in an OC note that you wish to use this item; the escape will be deemed automatically successful. Any character may use this pass to escape a spar, even those with the flaw Headstrong.
Extra Babe Pass
You may add +1 to the total number of babes rolled in a litter, but you must declare you're using this item when you request the pregnancy roll; if the roll is unsuccessful, the item will not be used. Predators may not exceed 6 babes; herbivores may not exceed 3. If the babe is a hybrid, you still need to purchase the appropriate hybrid to make this viable.
Giant Trait
Your character may be larger than is normally allowed by up to 10 pounds and 2 inches. This is not available for small species, nor is it available for flying birds.
Hybrid
(Basic)
If your characters are different species and/or homosexual, you must purchase this hybrid to request a roll for children. This type of hybrid will always be the species of the mother, meaning they will be birthed. If the couple is homosexual, the children's species will be determined with a dice roll if you use this hybrid.
Hybrid
(Upgrade)
If your characters are different species and/or homosexual, you must purchase this hybrid to have children; it is an automatically successful litter. This type of hybrid may be the species of either parent; you choose!
Hybrid
(Infertile)
If one creatures in a coupling is naturally infertile (due to old age, genetics, etc) but are still intact, they can reproduce with this hybrid. However, there will only be a maximum of 3 children in the litter, decided upon with a dice roll. A roll for success is necessary first.
Hybrid
(Infertile Upgrade)
If both creatures in a coupling is naturally infertile (due to old age, genetics, etc) but are still intact, they can reproduce with this hybrid. However, there will only be a maximum of 3 children in the litter, decided upon with a dice roll. No roll for success is necessary, as its auto successful.
Immortality
If your character has 150 posts, you may opt to buy this upgrade. It grants one character immortality in the sense that they will never die of old age. They can, however, still be killed. The age they are when this purchase is made is the age they immortalized as.
Rare Color Pass
Your character has a unique genetic anomaly that allows them to have both melanism and albinism. This must be used before the character's account is accepted and thus cannot be used on an existing character. You must notify staff that you wish to use upon creation.
Spirit Discount Pass
Your character has made their mark on Yavania! They may not become a spirit, when they die, with a total of 150 posts instead of the usual 300 required. You must request a rank change and notify staff that you wish to use this upon the death of the character. For every Spirit Discount after the first one you use, you can get 25 posts off of the total required. So with 2 Spirit Discounts, the total posts needed would be 125, and with 3 it would be 100, etc.
Venom
In order to keep the game fair, we require that you buy venom for your venomous creatures. Only creatures that are naturally venomous can have this upgrade. Once you buy this upgrade, your character has it for life. The potency of the venom depends on the species you play.
