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)
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 . . .
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.
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:
Halo (only grown forms)
Whiskers (only grown forms)
Skirt (only grown forms)
Veil (only grown forms)
Bud (only grown forms)
Pollen and Multi-Pollen (only grown forms) All Flowerling Flower types (only grown forms)
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.
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:
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.

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.:
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
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.
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.
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!
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.
