Monthly Prompt: Harrowing Halloween

 

It seems like one bad thing has followed another in Prism Vale over the past few months, and it doesn't seem to be letting up during this season of spooks and frights. Now that the identity of the mysterious figure has been revealed, Queen Valerie has given Sir Serillion orders to assemble the defenders at the Giant Canyon and confront this 'King of the Blightlings' once and for all. Is your Beanling joining the forces at the canyon or supporting them from the sidelines? Are they staying back on the other islands taking care of little ones and trying to preserve the more fun spirit of the season? Is your Blightling being born into the middle of this mess?

 

This Month's prompt will reward Mysterious Stones as well as the usual rewards. To enter, submit the prompt on the Beanling Patch website!

(to find, go to Activities-> Prompts)

 

Mysterious Stones

 

No one seems to know what these mysterious stones are made of yet- thus the name 'mysterious'. What Landry and his fellow scientists have been able to determine is that the stones love to absorb dew. It seems that if a Beanling holds one for too long they start to change . . .

 

Converting Beanlings

 

Beanlings will soon be able to convert in to Blightlings via exposure to Mysterious Stones. This change is permanent, so be careful if you choose to convert your Beanling. You are welcome to say that your converted Beanling was always a Blightling for their lore if you desire, but their masterlist number unfortunately must remain as it is.

 

Creating Blightlings

 

Blightlings can now be created by attaching a mysterious stone to your Beanling and Flowerling MYOs! The level of mutation and stage of growth will still apply. So, if you are using an Uncommon Beanling MYO with a Mysterious Stone, you may create an Uncommon Blightling. Universal Traits and Mutations

 

Beanlings and Blightlings have a few traits and mutations that you may use in both species. All others are currently exclusive. Here is the list of common traits and mutations:

 
 

Wing traits:

No wings

Elemental wings

Bat

Hybrid

Body Mutations:

A Note to the Community from Ceru

 

Hi yall! I'd like to start this out by saying that these last six months have been a real rollercoaster. I went from planning Starfall to planning a sister species to suddenly having the group handed over to me. I think it's safe to say that none of us saw the transfer of the group coming- not even me!

That said, I want to thank you guys for hanging with the group as we transitioned everything over! There was a lot going on behind the scenes with the website and discord, and I'm sure you guys felt the delays and changes as we got everything sorted out! You all have been very patient and supportive, and I cannot overstate how thankful I am for that!

I'd also like to give a huge thank you to our expanded 'staff' that have been working their butts off behind the scenes! My SO, Tenne, has been the one to get the website transferred and has been chipping away behind the scenes at getting features that haven't worked since installation in proper order.

My main mod, Spottednova (Sugar) has been absolutely invaluable in their own right! You can thank them for everything coming out in a timely manner, for a lot of the corrections in information across the site, for the coloring of assets and comics, and for keeping me sane. I'd also like to thank all of our guest artists and discord game mods for stepping up and helping to make the group a more colorful and active place!

Finally, I'd like to thank you all for continuing to make our little community an open and welcoming safe space. Over the past four years, I've gotten to know some of you all very well, and others in passing, and I haven't regretted a moment of it. As we launch this subspecies, and as I look at the year of plans we have coming, I can't help but hope that you all enjoy it to the fullest. It's maybe a bit sappy to say, but Beans have brought us all together, and I hope we can continue to have fun with them as a community! To anyone who made it this far and is new to the group, I hope you'll join us and enjoy what we've all made! Thank you all so very much-

It seems like the surging dew levels have resurrected Pumpkin-Sama and his handsome pumpkin posse! Please do your best to find him and his minions around the site!

In other news, it seems some . . . Wait, those aren't beans, are they? Hmm . . . Well, whatever they are, they're looking for new homes!
Their auction is being run on Deviantart.

Story Update

Posted 2 months ago :: Last edited 2 months ago by Ceru

Story and September Events!

Posted 3 months ago :: Last edited 3 months ago by Ceru


The Story so far

Many of the strange stones that were gathered have cracked open and seem to have released the dew magic they had been sucking up! The lake on Versi is flooding, Soleil is covered in dew, and islands all over the vale are overflowing! It seems that this excess dew is making everything grow at an uncontrollable rate! Local plantlife has been affected, with some of it growing sentient and malicious! It also seems to be affecting some beans, causing them to grow flowers, leaves, and vines all over their bodies, dragging them down. 
However, it also seems to be having other affects on beanlings! The flood of dew is causing beans to be born with some unusual dew.

Any bean made this month is allowed to use these traits for free, and you can add three to your existing beanlings! Beanlings who are created this month will also receive a special status that will give them access to interesting abilities and potentially traits later.  Traits must be applied by September 30, 2022.

Unrelated to the story, with the help of our game mod Revpup, we have gone through the masterlist and found the most used legendary traits and have made them rare traits! We are currently working through to replace these legendary traits with the rare version, and are leaving a free placeholder legendary trait in it's place that you may use to apply a new legendary trait to your beanling. Here is the list of new rare traits:
Wing traits:
No Wings
Elemental Wings
Body Traits:
Metallic
Luminescence
Iridescence
Glitter
Gem Growths
Elongated Body
Floral growths
Tail Traits:
Animal Tail
Decorated Wish

In yet more unrelated news, I (Ceru) am going to be away from my pc more than usual due to irl circumstances, and will be slower to respond! Please feel free to at me in the discord or leave a claim here on site if you need my hlep with anything! I am always more than happy to chat and answer questions. 

Gameplay and Site Updates

Posted 4 months ago :: Last edited 4 months ago by Ceru
We're happy to announce a few gameplay and site updates! We also have a few questions for you guys that may directly affect future additions, so please give us your input!
 
Gameplay
 
  •  You can now collaborate with another player on Monthly Prompts and Quests! Check each for additional details. 
  • The writing requirements for quests have been changed in order to standardize them with other prompts on the site. 
  • The structure and entry requirements for Guilds has changed. Take a look on the Guild Page!
  • Each guild has one additional prompt to allow beans that are already in guilds to progress to the next rank. 
  • If you already have beans in guilds, please create a claim with their masterlist link and your preferred levels to retroactively receive your rewards. You can create a claim by clicking on the submit menu beside your username and choosing 'Submit Claim'
  • The Blank Slate achievement threshold has been lowered from needing 10 prompts featuring blank to 3.
 

Site Updates
 
We are happy to announce the addition of Familiars to the masterlist! In order to make this possible, the basic and greater familiar items have been removed from the specialty shop and have been replaced with the basic and greater familiar box. These item contain either the basic or greater familiar item, as well as either a basic or greater familiar MYO token.
 
The Familiar MYO tokens function exactly as beanling myo tokens do currently. To use your token, click on it and convert it into an myo slot by checking which token you would want to convert and hitting open under the "Use Slot" option. Then, navigate to your myo slots and put in a design update. When filling out the traits section, add either the "Basic Familiar" or "Greater Familiar" trait.
 
Adding a familiar to your beanling will work the same as it has in the past; open a design update for the beanling, leave a comment that you are attaching a familiar, and attach either the greater or basic familiar item from your inventory.
 
For those of you who already have familiars, both equipped to beans and in your inventory, please leave a claim using this form  to receive your MYO tokens: 
 
Number of basic familiars:
Number of greater familiars: 

A small note regarding submitting familiars on-site: A user has been added specifically to allow you to credit offsite artists. It's username is, shockingly, Offsite_Artist. When uploading your design, simply select this user and add the URL of your artist in the artist or designer url box. We are happy to have all sorts of species as familiars for beans, but we suggest using your own discretion and abiding by external species rules if you wish to add another CS design as a familiar.

 
Unfortunately, the cash shop is currently not functioning. While it is visible, you cannot purchase from it. Fortunately, the pricing for items is changing! All equiptment and familiars are now half the price listed. Myo tokens cost as follows:
 Common Beanling MYO - 5$
 Uncommon Beanling MYO - 10$
 Rare Beanling MYO - 15$
 Legendary Beanling MYO - 20$
 Common Flowerling MYO - 15$
 Uncommon FlowerlingMYO - 20$
 Rare FlowerlingMYO - 25$
 Legendary FlowerlingMYO - 30$
If you wish to purchase any items, please wither leave a ticket in mod-ticket with your beanling patch username, the item/s you would like to purchase, and your paypal adress or dm Ceru (edited)
 
 We hope to get the cash shop fixed soon, and to have the familiars displayed on a separate masterlist, but for the moment, you can view them on the main masterlist
 

Plans and Questions
 
While we have a lot more than this in the works, we are happy to announce that we will be adding some more info and personality to our npcs, adding more quests, and adding more guilds! We have a few themes already planned  for guilds,  which are as follows: 
  • A guild for Artists of all kinds (visual, written, performance, etc.)
  • A guild for technological and engineering minded beans
  • A guild for beans that love fauna of all kind  
  • A guild for Explorers and Adventurers
We would love to hear y'alls ideas in general, but we'd especially love if you could leave us a comment in the discord , or if you would like to submit a claim regarding these questions:
  •  What type of guild would you like to see added?
  •  What sort of quests do you find most interesting? Do you have any ideas for future quests?
  •  What are some of your favorite character tropes/ personality types?
  •  Are you ready for October?

General Update/Ownership Change

Posted 4 months ago :: Last edited 4 months ago by Ceru

Hello Everyone! As you can all see the site is currently up and running! Having said that, we are hoping to do some more updates soon, and while we don't predict major downtimes, you can never be certain. Thank you again for your patience while we sort things out behind the scenes and try to improve the overall experience here and on the Discord! 

We are also looking to take on some Event Guest Artists! I will be posting this internally to the group here and on the site first, as I'd really like to fill the spots from within our community. https://forms.gle/SG9cCX9CPirdJKieA

Check out the form for more detail! 

As most of you are also aware, the entire Beanling-Patch ARPG has also undergone a change of hands. Toffee had previously poster her announcement on here and in the discord, but in transferring the site, we lost her post here, so I have included it below.:

Hey Everyone!

 

It’s Toffee-tama here. I have a very important announcement to make regarding the future of the group.

 

As some of you might have noticed, I have been rather absent from the group since March/April and firstly I would like to apologise for that absence. Unfortunately, I have been experiencing burnout in regards to art in general and thus I haven’t been able to give the group the care and attention it needs. It's very hard for me to delegate and get things done and I have been feeling rather guilty about neglecting my responsibilities as the group owner. I have therefore come to the conclusion that it would be best for me to step down from the leader role and pass it on to someone who is better prepared. 

 

This is not a decision I have made lightly and I have seriously been thinking it over for a few months now. I was reluctant to bite the bullet since I felt the pressure of sunk cost fallacy since I have worked on this group for almost 3 years now. However, I can also recognise my own shortcomings and I know myself well enough to know that it was time to walk away not just for my mental health, but the health of the group. I want Beanlings to thrive, but I feel like we can’t do that with me as the leader.

 

Going forward, CeruleansBlues (Ceru) will be the new group owner. She is the owner in all regards including the intellectual property of Beanlings, the site and future prospects. She will be taking over all aspects of running the site including the admin account. Please be kind and respectful as she transitions into her new role!

 

I’d also like to advise that the website will be down for an indeterminate amount of time as it is transferred between owners. Nothing will be changing about the website in terms of functionality, it will simply be undergoing an ownership transfer. Monthly prompts, crafting, questing and all other activities will continue as usual. Please feel free to continue playing the Starfall Event and working on your prompts!

 

In regards to my patreon, I will be closing my patreon at the end of the month since I have been neglecting it.

Please consider transferring your memberships to https://www.patreon.com/cerus_blues to continue receiving beanling-patch patreon benefits and supporting the site costs!

 

I will not be leaving the group or anything as I still have my personal account to engage as a regular player. There is also the tentative possibility of me participating as a guest artist in the future.

 

I want to thank each and every one of you guys for supporting me during this time and I want you to know that it truly means a lot to me!

 

Thank you everyone!

 

Best regards, Toffee-tama

Azul Starfall Faire Begins!

Posted 5 months ago :: Last edited 5 months ago by Ceru

The Story up until now:

 

At this time of year in the peaceful realm of Prism Vale, beanling's and flowerling's dreams have gathered in the skies and formed into falling stars. This year, however, something is truly amiss. A thick miasma has spread over Prism Vale, coating the skies and grounds and preventing the dream magic from forming in to stars. The source of this corruption-laced fog seems to be odd gems reminiscent of Void Fragments. A strange figure has been spotted planting the objects around the Vale.

See the last news post for the comic. 

 

Princess Twila Addresses Prism Vale in the midst of rising panic.

Twila Worried

Hello Citizens of Prism Vale! As I’m sure you’re aware, there has been a strange phenomena happening in the skies of our islands. Strange stones have been placed that have prevented our dreams from forming stars as they usually do this time of year. For all of you who helped investigate the matter, the Queen and I thank you, but we ask that you please remain cautious when investigating such anomalies.

Twila Happy

Fortunately, our very own Azul Defenders have managed to clear them away! Thanks to their and your own efforts, the skies have cleared and our dreams have gathered to fall once again! So it’s with great pleasure that I can finally announce the start of starfall! To mark this particularly unusual starfall, some of our very own guild leaders have set up stalls at the Azul Starfall Faire with generous and unusual prizes!

Twila Concerned

Please feel free to enjoy the festivities in safety, as our Azul Defenders will be guarding the fairgrounds and keeping an especially close eye on the canyon. With that said, if you see any mysterious figures or ill-intended actions, please report it to any defenders on duty so that they may investigate.

 

Happy Starfall Everyone!
