Howdy y'all! OMG! It's been so long!!!! Welcome back to Bubbies!
The pandemic threw us into a crazy whirlwind of uncertainty, which made us (us as in Rigby & TJ) have to re-evaluate how we run Bubbies to make it work better for us, and give our staff a better quality of life. I (TJ) spent most of the hiatus fixing broken features on the site, cleaning up some cobwebby corners, and making things overall more functional. Please keep in mind that this site is still a work-in-progress, and you are more than likely to find random bugs here and there.
That being said, if you haven't already, please join our discord!! If you encounter any bugs, have suggestions, etc, the best place to report them is there!
Anyways... On to the fun stuff... Updates!
It wouldn't be a re-opening without an adopt set!! Featuring adopts by both Staff AND three guest artists!
Did you really think we were gonna let Halloween just slip on by?! Of course not! We're bringing in Halloween with a prompt list!
But this isn't any regular old prompt list... Oh no. Completing the prompts on this list will earn you special prizes! For the very first prompt you submit, you will receive a very special, limited edition friend:
(in a random one of the above colors!)
After that, for each prompt you submit, you'll receive a random Snackbag!
(If you remember Lunarfest 2019, you remember these gift bags... But they've been UPGRADED!)
Upon opening these bags, you'll either get a sneak (a trick) or a snack (a treat)... a rare or lower tiered item from the general store, or a very rare coin piece that may or may not allow you to create a very special MYO at a future event...
"Wait, who, what? Me?"
In addition to a snackbag, you'll receive double the coal you would normally receive from submitting to the gallery!
That's right, you can now upload your Bubby-related art to our very own online Gallery! As of right now, you may upload any art that you have not already submitted for a previous Bubbi.es hosted event to the "Bubby Art" folder for coal!
Please be aware that bugs may arise as you use this feature! If you encounter anything weird, please report it in the discord as soon as possible!
In the next coming days, staff will be working through the Backlog of both regular coal submissions and Summer Melt entries and awarding prizes as needed. We'll make a separate announcement when we have the awards ready for those!
Long overdue is a comprehensive guide to how Coal AND using alchemy works. You can check them both out here:
Now finally, I wanna thank the entire Bubbies community for being so patient and awesome! Without the people who participate, even the littlest bit, Bubbies wouldn't be possible. So seriously, thank you all for everything!
If you ever have any suggestions or ideas for new features, or even just a concept you think "might be neat", never be afraid to share it with the community in the Discord! We'd love to hear it!
Happy week Bubbaronis, and enjoy!
In case you haven't noticed, Bubbies has been a little quiet lately... Don't worry: we're still here. Bubbies has been on a semi-unofficial hiatus since November as both master admins sort out real life stuff. (As you can tell, real life is a bit a crazy mess right now)
Currently, I (tgi) have been working back up slowly to getting Bubbies to an active state. There are tentative plans to bring things to full speed late 2021.
We do see your submissions and will go through them as soon as we come back from hiatus! Thank you all so much for being patient with us. <3
(also I will have awards for the summer melt and for everyone's patience during this crazy time ready at that time as well asfkgsdg)
Friendly reminder that there are three days left to submit prompts to the Summer Melt Event!
(This also goes for submitting Beelzebabies as well!)
^^ Submit your prompts here! ^^
If you're a new user to the site and were having issues connecting your deviantart account... That issue should be fixed now!
If you do happen to run into any other issues, please let me ( tgi ) know asap!!
Thank you so much for your patience! <3 And welcome to the Bubbies site!
Hey guys! I'm happy to announce our first on-site event, The Summer Melt!!
Normally we host an event every year called The Spring Melt. But due to delays both from eclipse, real life stuff, and site onboarding, the Spring Melt ended up transforming into... the Summer Melt!(I know summer is technically almost over, but... It's a play on words, okay! The Summer is melting away... Get it? Hahahaha......)
There are two new prompts relating to the event:
( September 4th- October 3rd)
The Summer Melt plot is up on a new page specifically titled "Events"! You can read up on the event to inspire your own Bubby's adventures. There are details on the prompt page on how to participate!
Beelzebaby MYOs are now OPEN!!!!! For this brief event period, you can purchase your very own Beelzebaby MYO! Details are on the prompt page.
(artwork by Phoenix)The Roving Merchant is BACK! They're here to trade any tickets (including ones you may have from last year) for various items!
To earn tickets, all you need to do is participate in the Summer Melt prompt before the end date!
....And finally, we have a brand new feature: Bubby of the Month!Each month, a Bubby will be chosen by the staff to be featured! The owner of the Bubby will receive an award (...after our awards are re-added to the site of course) and any art created of them during the month they're featured will earn double coal!!
This month's featured Bubby is...
To earn double coal for drawing this Bubby, submit to the "Bubby of the Month" prompt on the monthly prompt page!
...That's all for now, folks! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out on the discord!
Howdy everyone!! I realized I hadn't done an introductory news post yet, so here it is! Welcome to the new Beelzebubbi.es site!!This site is currently a work in progress, so some functions may be broken or unusable. If you notice anything that isn't working, please report it to the discord ASAP!
In the meantime... there's a few changes to the Bubbies system that old members should be aware of.
A few traits have changed in rarity. If your MYO (or custom) Bubby had this trait previously, their rarity will be upgraded to reflect their highest trait value. (If your Bubby has not been updated, please alert the staff via discord!)
A few traits have also changed names (due to similarities in naming with other traits)
...and finally, traits that were originally combinable are now only combinable with traits of equal or lesser value. You must spend an additional trait upgrade to combine traits with ones of higher or special rarity.
There's also a brand new Getting Started Guide that can help you if you're brand new to the Lorekeeper system. The guide goes over, in detail, how to set up an account, and navigate the site. (Though, if you're here, you've likely already completed the first part!)
There's also a brand new Design Guide that you may want to read over again if you're designing a new Bubby. Our submission rules have changed (and are likely to change again as we adjust things on the site).
We know that Bubbies was on a semi-official hiatus for some time, but we have some exciting things planned for the future! Some of those things include:
We hope you guys enjoy your time on the new Bubbies site! And please, if you notice any craziness, just let any staff member know on the discord!
See you around!!
