HAPPY 2022!

 

To kick off the year in a good note, we are raffling 3 fainaras, all of special rarity and spored!  This was a collab between andie and Inkcess. So we present to you those 3 amazing fainaras: Toadstool Rubber Ducky, Moss Mouse Plush and Cup of Shrooms!

You have 5 whole ways to get tickets, as follow:

  1. Say something you have accomplished this past year! It's always important to look back and see how far we have gone!
  2. Say something you're hopeful for 2022. Do you have any goals you intend to meet? Or perhaps something cool you're hoping to happen?
  3. Say something nice/compliment any user from fanteles! You, users, make this site possible and this group as wonderful as it is! So let's celebrate this important piece: the users!
  4. Say something nice about the group, something you enjoy, or something you're hoping to happen group-wise this next year! We want to hear your feedback and make this year better for everyone!
  5. Be a Fainara FTO! If you have no fainaras (you can have fanteles, no problem!), you get an extra ticket!

 

Just comment on this news to claim tickets! Please remember to state in your comment to which fainara you want your tickets to go for!  You can mix-and-match the tickets or dunk everything in one raffle, just let us know.

Feel free to comment as many times as necessary, but please avoid editing your comments!

 

We will also have extra prizes, rolled from the whole tickets pool, for total of tickets accomplished. As follow:

Factions and Official Artist Services!

Posted 6 months ago :: Last edited 6 months 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 8 months ago :: Last edited 8 months 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!

"Here we are, the beautiful Dino Island!" Nebula said, motioning to the place they landed on. "I'm not sure what a dino is but this is one of my favorite islands!"

 

"A dino is short for dinosaur," Maria answered fast, being met with an even more confused look from Nebula. "Dinos are like dragons but without wings, you know? Some can be big, some small, some even have big necks. I showed some drawings of dinos to you, Nebby."

 

"Ohh, from your mythical creatures book, I remember it!" Nebula nodded. "So, guys, that's a dino. Learning something new everyday!"

 

"Welcome to Dino Island!" an old fantele said, a big smile on his face. "Ready to have the most amazing experience of your lives?"
