What is Puppillars?

Puppillars is a closed species ARPG, which means we are a community with  activities and fun things to do on our site, but only members can participate using officially recognized Puppillars. You do NOT need a Puppillar to join our group however! Most activities can be completed by using the group's official mascots, one of our subspecies, or another member's Puppillar (with their permission)!

Puppillars are magical, multi-legged dogs with a vibrant history and community of thier own! Members both participate in, and help develop the Puppillars world through our activiries and events. Members can adopt a puppillar or create their own to use in events, with traits that have different levels of rarity!

By participating in activities and events, members can earn our currency, Treats, which can be used to buy things in group! Members also receive treats for submitting art of any kind, and treats earned by submitting art will be calculated by staff and added to your account!

You can find a detailed guide on how to navigate our site here!

FAQS

Why do I need to verify my account with an alias?
With our Lorekeeper framework, registering with an alias is required as a way to verify the account isn't a bot. Any acount used for verification does not need to be active, and can be hidden on site if the member chooses!

Why do I need a DeviantArt account to claim my old Cache?
Since our Group started out on Deviantart, dA accounts are currently required in order to verify if you were an existing member of the group (and possibly need to transfer existing items), and to make sure no one is trying to impersonate an old member when joining in order to try and claim their items or Puppillars. 

Can I change my username after I've signed up?
Yes! If you would like to change your username please contact a staff member, we can change your site name on our admin panel. There is a month cooldown for name change requests.

What about my Devinatart name, can I change that?
Yes, if you have moved to a new account, please notify us and we can reset your dA account link. This will make you have to re-verify, so please only request this when absolutely neccessary!

How many treats do I get for X type of art/writing/etc?
We have a breakdown of our treats valuing system on this Google Sheet for you to see all the values!

If you have any questions not covered here, please ask in our #ask-staff channel on our Discord Server!
