Fanteles Mini Hiatus and Magic Bonus!

Posted 4 months ago :: Last edited 4 months ago by Provie

Hi everyone, after the conclusion of our Festival of Life Event, we are announcing that Fanteles will be taking a mini-hiatus for new content for the time being. Staff needs some time to take a break and recharge, and we will announce once our litte hiatus is over and we are working on some new stuff.

In the meantime, things will be running mainly normally, gallery entries, prompts, MYOs, etc will still be processed as normal (though may have a longer delay than usual), but there will be no new events or new activities. Any of our always going on activities, such as Challenges, Quests, and Magic Learning will be ongoing, so this is a great time to work on some of those if you have been meaning to!

For the duration of our mini hiatus, there will be special bonus for Magic Learning!
For the First Magic Learning prompt completed during this time, members will recieve +3 Fairy Coins
For the Second Magic Learning prompt completed during this time, members will recieve +5 Fairy Coins
For the Third or More Magic Learning prompt completed during this time, members will recieve +7 Fairy Coins

We hope you all enjoy this special bonus! We will make sure we make an announcement before the bonus ends so everyone has a chance to get any last minute prompts in! Thank you so much to everyone for your support!

Conclusion 7/11: Thanks to everyone for participating in the Festival of Life Event! The Raffle has been rolled, and the winners are: duskinova oboe and wanderandfriend! Results can also be seen here! Raffle winners will be contacted about their prizes shortly! The Event Shop will remain open until the end of the Month, so make sure to spend your Event Coins before then!

Getting through the winter is always something to celebrate, and on Alana Fanteles always get excited with the coming of spring and the warmer weather (well, maybe not all fanteles, mammoth fanteles might prefer the winter...). During this time of year, Fanteles across the continent celebrate new life, both in the form of spring flowers, and life of their own...

  4. For the prompts, the minimum for art is a colored bust and for writing the minimum is 300 words

event activities

Scavenger Hunt - Spring is in the air, and as part of the Festival of Life some fun spring items have been hidden around our site! There are six fun new items to collect, hidden around the site, simply click them to claim! Some things to note:

  • Hidden items can be found throughout the site, but will not be hidden on character masterlist entries, on member profiles, or on gallery entries!
  • Do not share the locations or links to any of the items with others, or give hints to others. This is considered cheating, anyone found doing so will receive a warning
  • Please be respectful of other people's experiences when discussing the scavenger hunt, including discussing how "hard" or "easy" a location may be, since everyone will have a different experience!
  • Members will get 10 event points per item found, these points can be obtained via Claims, simply submit a claim stating how many you found and staff will verify on the back end
  • There will be a special bonus for those who find all six items,  a raffle ticket for our Festival of Life Raffle!

Here are the items you are hunting for:

  • Depict your fantele/fainara searching for the perfect flower to infuse with magic for the festival
  • Depict your fantele/fainara making a flower crown or other flower craft for the festival

Factions and Official Artist Services!

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

We have a new awesome feature: Factions! Both you and your characters can be part of a faction. Once you’re part of a faction you may get faction standing via participating on the Faction Standing Prompt! You may change factions as many times as you wish, just remember your standing resets to 0 each time!

We now have a mini-clock on each page! No more going back and forth to the welcome page to know which time is on site!

Official Artist Pages are now open! Are you having a hard time designing your fantele or fainara? No worries, some of our OAs offer free MYO help! The services all our OAs offer are MYO help (some free, some only paid), Redesigns and Customs! All the money goes directly to the artists, and helps support our amazing staff!

[Conclusion] Dino Island

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

“Thank you very much for all your help,” Hector started, softly. “I’m really sorry for all the problems with the escaped dinos! I’m really glad all my dear dinos are back and safe.”

 

89_YSnO1wzMxr_GbbmqUssEHsOeM6_full.png

 

“But, oh my, we have a small problem here,” he continued. “One of those dinos isn’t mine!”

 

Mushroom Dino Fainara

 

“I’m not really a dino, actually,” the not-dino laughed. “My name is Mushy, I’m a Fainara. Some fantele was really eager for me to enter the petting zoo.”

 

“I have heard of Fainaras! I can lend some texts about them, for anyone interested,” Hector interjected.

 

“I’m here to stay, and I brought a few friends. Perhaps you could give them a home?” Mushy showed a bunch of green sparkling mushrooms.

To bring a Fainara home, go to the event shop and buy for 0 points one!

Do you want more Fainaras? You can also offer on a Fainara in this sales post!
