So, you want to start a garden
, do you?
Well, what is
a garden, you may ask?
Easy! A garden is a wonderful place, similar to a kennel - where you can keep your (mml) plant-like creatures, and even play with them too! And, if you take good enough care of your garden, you may be able to harvest sweet rewards from it! Sounds nice, right?
Let's start withHow to Build a Garden
In order to build a garden, you simply have to go to the gardens themselves, and start your very own thread. You can title it anything you want, so have fun with that!
In the very first post of your garden, you must contain all the pets that you wish to host in your garden in there.. If you host a pet in your garden - you cannot keep it anywhere else (like your kennel), as that would be considered duplication. You are limited to "plant creatures" in your garden, but you can have up to 2 non-plant creatures kept in your garden as well.
You must also post all your gardening relevent skills! Such as botony, etc!!
If you don't, you won't recieve the benefits of it!
What's a "plant creature"? Easy!
Kiseiseibutsu (fungal beast)
King of the Evergreen
There is however - a very special additional rule, when it comes to Lotine specifically... Ready for this?
The Lotine Rule
You may only have one Lotine in your garden, as they're very finicky, and don't like to share their space with other Lotine.
How to work in your garden
To work in your garden, simply post! You should note at the bottom of EVERY post you make in your garden which pet you are currently playing with.. this can be as simple as:
"Magical Mussimander, lvl6"
When posting in your garden, by playing with your pets, plowing the land, weeding it, planting seeds, harvesting fruit... or hunting for bugs... whatever you may wish to do; When you post in your garden, on frequent occassion, you may FIND SOMETHING.
In order to actually take this something home, you have to roleplay aquiring it.. If your pet produces a fruit, it's fairly easy to roleplay aquiring it... But if you find a stray plant-monster in your garden - getting it to stay with you (tame-like), or even killing it will take a bit more roleplay than simply picking up a seed.
Disasters can also happen to your garden, so be aware.
The more skilled of a gardener you are of course, the better your chances of good results!
Every once in a while, individual pets can yield special things!
If you have that particular pet, and take good care of it that month, it might even give you something special!
