Welcome to Puppillars!

Greetings, for both old members joining the site for the first time, and new members joining, here are some starter things to know about our site!

 
What is Puppillars?

Puppillars is a closed species ARPG, which means that there are activities and fun things in our group, 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 or another member's Puppillar (with their permission)!

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!

 

How do I get a Puppillar?

There are a few different ways! Keep an eye out for official adopts posted by the Staff or Guest Artists that you can purchase or bid on. Make your own (or MYO) slots are also periodically available for sale or through NPC shops or ARPG events. If you cannot afford to purchase one, fear not some official Puppillar Adopts or MYO slots will also be available by spending ARPG currency, as prizes from an event, or by being raffled off!

 

What do i do now that I created my Account?

When your account is registered  and verified, you're free to explore the site! You can edit your profile, check out the Lore, and more! Clicking around on the site will help build some familiarity, but remember staff is also available to answer any questions you have!

Once you're settled, you can start to participate any activities on the site, including completing prompts to start earning treats, which you can be spent in the shops! New members should check out Apollo's shop, where you can claim a free Welcome Gift, a free Snailcat MYO, and once you've earned enough treats, First Time Owners can purchase a FTO MYO Coin, which is a discounted Common Puppillar MYO slot!

 

Where else can I chat about puppillars?

Members are encouraged to join the Puppillars Discord, and join the Puppillars Deviantart Group if they so choose! Our discord is a great place to chat, share art, get previews from the staff, and have some fun! We even have exclusive giveaways on Discord, so check it out! As for our DeviantArt group, it acts like an Archive and as a Gallery, you may submit any and all Puppillar art to share with the rest of the group there, and browse art by other members!

FAQS

Why do I need a DeviantArt account to verify my account?
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!
