NEW FEATURES
  • Pets are here! They don't have any functionality yet beyond collecting and equipping them to your Plushpets, but in the future we plan to introduce prompts to do with your little guys!
    • As pets function on the same extension as weapons and gear, they cannot be sold from the inventory. A new utility prompt has been added to exchange pets you no longer need!
  • New awards dropped! A set of merit badges based on fishing, plushpet hoarding, and talents have been released!
  • Page-Messing-Around-With! The ARPG Encyclopedia and Prompt Index pages have been retouched to make them easier to navigate! A dedicated fishing page is also coming.
  • Slight change to HP system in missions! In order for a character to both receive experience and count towards defeating a mission, it must not lose all its HP during the course of the battle. In more basic terms, the monster attacks first now! If a character can't survive an attack with their stats and equipment, they will be treated as if they had not participated in the prompt. 
    • Future damage dealt by mission monsters (including June's) will be rescaled accordingly.
  • Requests are now called Occasions! Nothing else has changed.

Bug fixes
  • Character's stats can now actually go to 0! The current amount of HP now always displays. A bug where "0" and "Full" HP would not display at all has been fixed.

NEW FEATURES
  • Equipement System Overhaul! New mechanics for equipping accessories and weapons has been made for lorekeeper, which we are trying out here on Plushpet Plaza! Since it's a newer in-alpha extension, there's been and will be a few bugs around the site. 
    • All equipment now directly affects a characters stats as soon as it's equipped!
    • Accessories have been renamed to gear, and both them and weapons are now in a separate category from normal items.
    • All currently existing equipment have been converted into vouchers, which can be used to get the working stat-affecting items by "opening" them!
    • Usable versions of equipment cannot currently be sold or bought, so those wishing to convert usable versions of their equipment can use claims to ask staff too do so.
  • Stat System Overhaul! To make stats more broad and applicable to more than just mission battling scenarios, they've been renamed and reformatted for future prompts which will use these new stats. In addition, the Level system has had changes to make it more compatible. 
    • Upon levelling up, a character now rececives an amount of Stat Points for their owner to dish out to different stats as desired!
      • Damage is now Bravery
      • Defense is now Tenacity
      • Seed Bonus is now Charm
    • The lowest amount of HP a character can have is now 1, so any characters with this amount of HP will not be able to participate in missions until their health has been restored.

  • Fishing Almost! Still coming soon, but now you can read about the three unique fishing venues in their prompt descriptions!

New Year Updates!

Posted 8 months ago :: Last edited 8 months ago by basketworm

WAOW WAOW its been a while since our last update! In the time since then we've added a number of new updates, including an update of the site's framework! As it's still fresh out of the oven, bugs are expected. If you encounter something funky, you can submit a bug report or hop in the discord to let us know! 

new features!
  • Galleries: You can now submit art to an on-site gallery and earn Eternity Seeds in the meantime! You can even submit art that you've made for past prompts, although you can't double up on rewards unfortunately.

  • Adoption Center: An adoption center has opened up! If you're no longer feeling attached to your Plushpet and want some Seeds, you can surrender them here. Once in the center, Plushpets can be bought by other players for the price you assign to them! 

  • Daily Findings: As new features for the site's Lorekeeper framework are released, we're slowly working towards making features of the site automated for a better player experience! One of the fun new additions is Character Drops, which are items or currency that players can collect from characters over a set period of time.  For us, this means you can now collect an item called Findings from your Plushpets once per day! Findings are a randomized amount of eternity seeds, so this is a good way to slowly build up your seeds if you don't have time for prompts and other activities. 

  • Sales Feed: We have a shiny new sales feed too now! It's like the news feed, but for adopts, giveaways, and other related things. 

  • New Items: A pack of new items and recipes have been added to the game! They'll be rolled out to various Explorations, Prompts, and Shops in the coming days. 

  • PoppetsAnother new feature aimed towards FTO's is Poppets! These are essentially a more limited version of MYO slots that use predetermined colors and certain traits. 
Site updates!
  • MYO Tickets can now be used in your inventory and will automatically generate a MYO slot of their rarity upon use!

  • Players can now set up Relationships between their characters and other characters! This functions similar to the Links feature on Toyhouse.
  • The World Encyclopedia page has been expanded to include different pages for Fauna, Flora, Important Figures, and Events! This is still empty as of now, but it's there and ready to be used!!

  • You can now set your Plushpet's home in their profile! You can pick from any realm or any subarea within them. This doesn't have any game impacts as of now, it's just a fun flavor thing!

  • Sub-masterlists are now a thing, they appear as separate links on players profiles page and on the masterlist page. As of now this is only used for Poppets, but it opens up some new organization options!

  • Advent Calendars are also now programmed into the site, so we're ready to roll out some fun stuff for future events.

  • You can probably already tell from the giant space it takes up on profiles, but pets are coming soon too!

Site Opening!

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

Greetings to new players, and a big welcome back to any returning friends! By GOD have we been on a hiatus, but we have a whole website now!! Holy moly!!! Everything might look a bit barebones at the moment, but we've got a bunch planned for the upcoming months! For now just kick back, get used to the site, and stay tuned for further updates!

headlines

 The Plushpet Plaza site is officially open! We're currently in what the kids may call "beta", so keep in mind that things may change as we get feedback to make the game more balanced! (Also, don't forget to pick up your welcome gift!)

 To get started, try completing a prompt for rewards! If you haven't already, consider filling out an ARPG application for your characters. This lets them participate in special missions with other plushpets! Don't have a character? Check out the currently open adopts!

 Not sure where to go or have questions? Check out the site guides page or get a hold of us on discord! You can also note the Deviantart group, but response times may be slower there.
