What Is A Scarfox?
Scarfoxes are a closed species by Kawiku / Kakiwa.
Scarfox are considered magical living dolls that are fully aware, sentient and identify with different personalities and interest, just like humans.
They are extremely flexible and do not have bones. Scarf arms are attached to the body and cannot be removed.
Their general height range is between four to eight feet tall.
These creatures are empowered with magic and use these gifts to interact with their environment and each other. One features that distinguishes scarfoxes like any other creature is that instead of blood, they have a special mist in their bodies. Like a human, when hurt, in place of blood, mist will leak out. When this happens, they fix themselves or get help. It is said there are some scarfox that have no mist in their bodies called Hollows. They are currently a mystery.
It is said that scarfox' are people given another chance at life, and thus are reborn.
What is a Closed Species?
A closed species technically means that you are not allowed to make your own scarfox.
Despite this, there are many different ways to obtain a scarfox.
How Do I Get A SCARFOX?
One way to obtain a scarfox is through auctions. In auctions you bid with other members and non owners for the chance to purchase the scarfox that is being auctioned off. Sometimes there are autobuy (AB) prices, where a user may purchase the scarfox outright for a predetermined value instead of bidding. But there are some auctions have no AB prices. These include charity related and custom auctions.
Despite their prices, there are specific sales for first time owners. For these auctions the AB prices are either significantly cheaper or do not exist in order to allow members with limited funds an opportunity to obtain a scarfox.
Another way to obtain a scarfox is through flatsales. Flatsales, like their name entails are adopts sold for a set price, or, "flat rate". Flatsales are, due to their nature, "first come, first serve" or by raffle. Prices of flatsales depend on the scarfox's traits and other predetermined design features. Like auctions, there are FTO only opportunities for flatsales as well.
Scarfoxes can also be obtained through raffles. Raffles include Draw to Adopt style raffles as well as traditional lottery raffles. Draw To Adopt (DTA) raffles are entered by drawing the scarfox.
Once in a while, either the creator or authorized artists are allowed to create custom scarfoxes. The prices and availability of customs depend on the artist themselves. You may watch the group and/or artists for notifications when customs are offered.
Different from prompts, the group hosts events in which members and non-members can win a free scarfox or even MYO slots. MYO slots are exceedingly rare and thus are given out as event prizes presently. Each event has different requirements and context, so the prizes all depend on the event.
Okay...What Do I Do Now?
Scarfoxes can be used for anything! Personal use is not limited in any way. You can draw them, make up stories, and anything to your heart's content. If you would like to participate in the group-provided ARPG though, we have outlined a few pointers below!
The first thing to do before you participate in the Scarfox ARPG is to create an account! Accounts are used to track your ARPG progress as well as access minigames and other member-exclusive content.
Collecting Collectible Items
There are some items that are collectible and even spendable. The main collectible and spendable item are Crystals. Crystals are earned by completing a prompt entry; either art or literature. For every entry you complete and submit to the Gallery, the website will calculate the amount of crystals you earn and you will automatically be awarded (once a mod approves!). There are other collectible items that you can collect doing prompts, rites, and events!
What are Rites?
Rites are essentially the main "quests" your scarfox may complete throughout the ARPG. Rites are designed to allow you create your own story for your scarfox. Each rite has guided yet open ended guidelines to ensure as much creative freedom as possible. The aim of rites is not only to be a way to participate in the ARPG and earn Crystals, but to encourage you to develop your scarfox in parallel to ARPG progression.
Crystals are spendable and can be used to buy stock at shops! Crystals can be used to buy potions and other items
