Crow-Face's Bulletins


My desktop hard drive has most likely completely died, my desktop suddenly shut off the other day and won't turn on at all, so I'm in desperate need of an External Hard Drive for my laptop in the event of another crash. I have these Auracorns for sale if you want to help out.:

The Auracorn Masterlist is finally being updated again!

 I am STILL pretty behind on backlogs, but it would very much help me out of you have Auracorns already on the masterlist, even if they're being actively traded, PLEASE INCLUDE THE LINK TO THEIR MASTERLIST ENTRIES IN THEIR PROFILES! If they are NOT yet in the masterlist however you do not have to stress about their masterlist entry being linked at this time. I would also advise looking through the masterlist in case any current ownership information on entries may be wrong/require updating!

Also as a reminder, there will be some new TOS in effect/announced AFTER the masterlist has been updated. Besides the new TOS being considered in my last bulletin, I will ALSO be adding in the following to my TOS:

- Auracorns listed on Toyhouse may not be deleted or hidden, or if they are hidden, at LEAST be visable to me as the species creator. Hidden Auracorns are harder to track, especially in the case of possible scamming or other issues that may need proof of date, transfer history, etc. I will need to view their trade and sales history in order to better see what Auracorns changed hands for what reason.

As I'm working on the masterlist, I'm having a hard time finding and tracking hidden or deleted Auracorns, so now it will be required-especially if I list and transfer them for sales and trades, that they NOT be deleted or hidden from me! This is to better keep track of them in the future and to help prevent scamming or confusion. This will not come into effect until the masterlist is fully updated, but PLEASE keep this in mind for the future when it's announced!

I've been sitting on and thinking about some changes for Auracorns and the Auracorn group in the coming year, and wanted to share them with any of nya'll that would be willing to hear about them. I hope these ideas might excite some of you as I work more on the species and develop them and the community.

Again NONE Of this comes into effect until OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED next year! I am still thinking some things over and whatnot!


- I will be holding a contest for an icon for the Deviantart group, I feel like it's overdue for one and I think a lot of people who see it may mistake the species for feral or MLP-based at a glance. I'm hoping to come up with some good prizes too, so that'll be something I hope people are interested in participating in.


- I want to update the general species info and refsheet and (optional) lore. The refsheet is a bit old and somewhat outdated, I think it's about time I fix it up and make it less plain to boot.

- I want to put more focus on events, community and story, less focus on adopts. Meaning that adopts may also have a little more effort, at least from myself.

- I REALLY need to bring on one or more cofounders or contributors to help manage the group and/or discord chat. I really burnt myself out during the Halloween event and I'm still sortof recovering mentally-plus holidays have kept me busy with family. While I do appreciate the work of guest artists for adopts and the like, I really need help actually planning and putting art and stories out into the events as well as manage contests, people in the chat and general approvals for things.

- There may be an Update on general group and species rules + TOS/Make some things more clear. While things are generally smooth, I would like to make things less confusing-I still sometimes get people posting up unapproved MYOS publically without sending them in for approval first.

- There will be Less MYO slot prizes, more pre-made prizes for contests (excluding Special MYOs, such as Uncommon, Hybrid or even Legendary MYOs as peizes). There's honestly way too many un-used MYO slots out in circulation that haven't really been used up, so I think I won't be offering MYO slots for prizes as often, and even cut down on MYO slot sales events.

- Raffles? I'd like to do some raffles, either in the Discord chat or in general.

- I will ALSO be allowing Resells of Auracorns received through trade but ONLY if they've been in the owner's possession for a year or more! The price will be what was paid for in commissioned art however, NOT art made by the owner for free or giftart. They must ALSO have proof of a masterlist entry before being resold! Speaking of the masterlist...


- The masterlist will be worked on in the coming year, and might be something I'll need help with if I manage to get on more cofounders and contributors. This is also why I will be making less adopts next year. When the Auracorn Masterlist is finished being updated, ALL Auracorns MUST be required to have their masterlist entry linked in their Toyhouse profile, Deviantart reference, FA reference and so on! When the masterlist is finished being worked on, Auracorns can NOT be traded or sold without an up to date and verified masterlist entry!


- Voided Auracorns will also still retain their masterlist Entries, but they will indicate that the design has been Voided. This is in the case they are traded to someone who may want to reinstate their Auracorn status. AURACORNS THAT HAVE BEEN VOIDED TWICE CANNOT BE UN-VOIDED A SECOND TIME.


- In the coming year, after the masterlist has been updated, Crow-Faced made Auracorns will no longer be voidable. Only MYOs and guest designs may be voided, and only IF the guest artists themselves allow it in their own TOS. My species is fairly small, and I would like to see it grow through my designs and hard work. I would prefer my own designs not be voided if I can help it, so this rule is taking effect next year, but only AFTER the master list is up to date.

I think that might be all of what I have in store, but things may change, be added or not happen at all depending... but I hope it gets some of you guys hyped about the species next year!

Almost forgot to announce this weep

This month and going on to the next year, we are going to have two guest artists every month instead of the one~!

And for December, the guest artists chosen are Hoenn and Kayelsea ~!

I hope you all look forward to seeing their designs in the coming month!

You can also commission other people or request friends, etc to design your MYOs for you but they still must be sent to me for approval before posting.


In terms of designing your MYO, you are more or less free to alter and add to your MYO most anything, so long as it retains the basic idea that the creature is an Auracorn, meaning that yes your Auracorn can have a pair of solid horns in addition to their spiritual gem horn, wings, claws, fangs, extra eyes, scales, manes, etc and so forth, so long as you keep the central idea that they are an Auracorn.


For approval of your design, please PM me with a link to the design in stash or photobucket. Unnaproved designs cannot be posted publically, only AFTER they have been approved.


What you may NOT do however is the following:

- Make the eyes a different color from the forehead gem. In the case of heterochromia, at least one eye must be a match to the forehead gem, OR the forehead gem can be a gradient or other mix of the two different colored eyes.

- Replace the central horn gem with a 'real' central horn, or otherwise remove the gem altogether.

- Add more gems ANYWHERE on the body meant to be 'extra' horn gems

- Remove or alter the legs to be anything but hooves (ex: Turn the hooves into clawed or paw feet)

- Make the ears anything BUT the type of ears Auracorns normally have

- Give them a nose/muzzle that is anything BUT humanoid or equine

- Put anything other than a tuft of hair/fur to the end of the tail

- Make their gem a different shape


For further questions about the event or your MYO, feel free to ask~!

Purge Folder Updated + Added Designs

Posted 2 months, 29 days ago by Crow-Face

Purge Folder --> General Trades

Also added in a TON of designs for offers, including some closed species (Novatt, Kittea, Xynthii, etc), and there's also a Puppypresident and alpacasovereign design still.

I also have a new Freebie folder here

EEEEY November's Auracorn Guest Artist is FrostAnubis !!!! Give them your support and hope you all like the designs they put out-! I AM SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THEM MYSELF

After being involved with Dreamies for 3+ years and doing stories and art for them, unfortunately I'm coming to the conclusion they no longer hold an appeal to me like they used to. I still very much am thankful for being able to write stories and make friends in the community, but I'm sortof moving on to other species+focusing more on my own, and also examining the comic of some of my oldest Dreamies and the story, I've sortof traded off some major side-characters already, and I don't think I have the same motivation to continue it I once had.

Not to say that I'm done with all umbral-wind species-! As some others I'll be considering amongst what I'm looking at to trade some of my Dreamies for! However due to some of their stories, yes some will be harder for me to let go based on attachment alone! Also I'm still holding onto two Dreamies, one because Snapback is the Single Best Dreamy Ever and Charlamagne is based on an old personal character already.

I will also be pinging certain people for first pick on certain Dreamies, and because I trust them in taking care of them-!  I'm sad to let some of these Dreamies go, but all the same I have hope that with their new owners they'll be able to live again in better settings and stories!

As for what I'll look at/consider, I'm looking to trade for the following:

- Art - May be a little picky

- Czylphs (MYOs are fine)

- Chimereons (MYOs are fine)

- Dainties (MYOs are fine)

- Weavers ( Species by bananamantis, There's a very small handful up for offers by their respective owners I can direct you to for threeway trades, however some can be a little pricey. I'd be willing to trade multiples for a single Weaver, depending).

- Novatts

- Star Dragons

- Old Auracorn designs (depending on the design)

- Custom designs (Auracorns or other customs, depending)

- ???? Show me what you got???


Anyone may offer on this guy, I may re-use his bio a bit though as a different species/villain for something else.

CaptainTigglesworth , mallimutt and Kunamei HAVE FIRST PICK TO OFFER ON THESE THREE DREAMIES!

I can't thank you guys enough for being around in the community and being generally cool people, if there are any people I would trust with these Dreamies it's you guys! Additionally if you're wanting to preserve/continue the comic with these three, please let me know so I can forward you the sketched pages+files of older pages I may have! Otherwise I will be putting the pages in storage if you take their stories in a different direction!
