    Hallows Eve 2021


    This event will end at 11:59 (PST) on Nov 16, 2021


     Every year, the Dragons of Aquella pay respects to their elders in the autumn season.

    They also love to get together and enjoy spending time with friends and family.

    As the season shifts into darkening days, the light plays all sorts of tricks on the creatures of the world.  Sometimes spooky, other times unsettling.

    Rumors of ghouls and ghosts roam the planet around this time of year.

    Some say they are just rumors, others claim that they really do exist.

    So what do you believe? 

    Just a rumor, or a tall legend?

    Or perhaps you have witnessed one of these cursed creatures yourself?


    Curse of the Shapeshifter:

    You stumble upon an unknown patch of plants.  What happens next you do not realize, until it is too late!
    These plants seem to have placed a curse on you!

    Your body shifts and changes, into something else!

    Luckily for you, these effects are temporary, but you don’t know that ... yet.

    How will your aqrion attempts to fight these beasts, or are they the type to run away? Perhaps, they see a different option and link sides with them.

  • Lua's Love Day 2021

    Feb 27, 2021, 8:28:35 PM | 0 Comments | 4 min read


    Love is in the Air!


    The season's have started to shift. Currents begin to fill the cold waters with warmth once again.

    Plant life begins to rouse from it's hibernation, sprouting in vibrant colours once more.


    Aqrion young and old begin to feel this change, frolicking like little pups.

    They begin to get giddy and flirty with this renewing warmth.




    During this event, Aqrion will be able to earn their Trials of Aquella Trophy!

    Jewel of Aquella by Aqrion-Admin


    Grab a partner, spin them around and let's have some fun!




    - Entries must be Fullbody, Coloured or Grayscale, and contain at least a Standard Background.

    - Literature must be 700 Word Count. For every additional participating dragon, you must add 150 Words to your piece.

    - Multiple dragons may participate together. A maximum of 4 dragons may participate per entry.

    - Collaborations are also welcome!

    - A guide Dragon is not needed to complete these prompts.


    - Disabled dragons must complete the Disability Prompt below before they can complete the main prompt. ***


    You only need to complete one of these prompts!

    Aqrion who already have their Trials may still enter!

    Event ends May 2 at 11:59 pm PST.




    Prompt 1:

    Sometimes you just need to dance with you're mate under moonlight until you're heart's content.  Woo a mate through a love dance!


    *Show your Aqrion elaborately dancing with a partner under the moonlit sky.*


    - They may be entwined and gazing deeply into each other's eyes.

    - Backgrounds may include details such as icebergs in the water.  An Island in the horizon may contain snow and early blooming flowers.


    Prompt 2:

    Other ways of attracting a mate is by dressing up in beautifully adorned plants and flowers.  And then showing off!


    *Show your Aqrion elaborately dressed in wild fauna (sea or land), shells, and other items, and strutting their stuff at another Aqrion.*


    - He may be blushing with how ridiculous he feels.  Or he may be simply love-struck for the partner he's trying to woo.

    - Backgrounds may include freshly growing plant life and/or flowers with vibrant greens.  The moon would be casting light through the water and on the surface.


    Prompt 3:

    Sometimes, wooing mate's the old fashioned way is tricky and unrewarding.  Sometimes, it is best to simply chase you're loved one for a while.  Playing small harmless pranks along the way.


    *Show your Aqrion giggling and chasing each other through the newly grown fauna.*


    - They most likely will have giddy looks of love on their face.  They may be giggling or laughing like little girls.

    - Backgrounds may include freshly growing kelp, seagrass, and many other plants.  Creatures hidden in the sand may begin emerging from their hibernation.



        ***Disabled Prompt:



    Your dragon must learn to master his disability before they are ready for the world. Here, Mochi the old Pygmy Singer, is here to help you hone your skills.

    Mochi helps the disabled dragons learn to make connections with other disabled dragons. She also helps to build communities to be more accepting of others and educate other healthy dragons about living with disabilities and how to normalize them.

    Today, she is teaching the community group how to make flower wreaths.


    *Show your Aqrion making a flower wreath with Mochi or another disabled dragon*


    - They may be struggling at their task, or succeeding with flying colours.

    - Backgrouds may be full of flowering fauna.




    - Trials of Aquella for participating Dragon, this may be claimed multiple times.

    These may only be claimed once per person:
    - x1000 Pearls
    - x1 Pygmy Singer Mystery Eggs [Silver]

    Event ends on May 2 at 11:59pm pst

    Hello Everyone!


    We have a Starter Design Contest for you!  This time of our newest species, the Pygmy Singers!


    You may find the template here!


    First, the Unique BG these guys will be having is not quite ready yet. Apologies!

    - 2 Basic Markings

    - 2-4 Common Markings

    Elements ideally would be common and uncommon.  We will use a few rare elements as well.


    Legendary markings are allowed, but please avoid stacking royal, oil and legendary markings on a single design.  We want all of our starters to have roughly the same value, this enables us to have all of our starter slots be sold at the same price. :)

  • New Years Event Challenge

    Jan 14, 2021, 1:57:03 AM | 0 Comments | 3 min read

    This event will run January 13 - March 10, 2021.


    The New Year is upon us, and with it comes a new creative challenge. This challenge is in collaboration with Dracostryx, Dragons of Aquella, and PaperDemon.

    We highly encourage you to collaborate or create gift art for players of other ARPGs! 

    Check out PaperDemon's prompts Here.



    Thunder rumbled ominously through the skies, strong enough to shake the Journeyships’ solar masts. The storm had roiled up from the horizon in the span of a handful of heartbeats, nearly unnatural in its speed. The caravan of airships hadn’t the speed to outrun it, and no portals to safe shores existed for miles in any direction. All they could do was pray that their ships would hold.


    Lightning snapped across the bow of a smaller ship. Crates of fireworks exploded across the deck in a riot of colors, setting the ship aflame. Its crew scrambled to put out the fire, but even through the driving rain it persisted. The ship limped low, crew throwing boxes overboard to keep it in the air.


    Suddenly, sleek shapes appeared in the water below. Aqrions, beckoning to the crew to abandon ship. Above, massive feathered dragons rocketed down through the clouds. Dracostryx, seeking to pull people from the flaming ships.

    The heroes of the Paperverse portal in from countless worlds, teaming up with beasts of sky and sea to bring the Journeyships home.


    The Rescue:


    Cargo and crew are scattered across the rough seas below the disaster in the sky. Boats and swimmers rush to their rescue, with you among them. 


    Draw or write your Aqrion assisting in the rescue efforts alongside one of the Dracostryx or the Avangard.


    If you don’t already know any Dracostryx Players, join the Dracostryx Discord and ask for volunteers!

    If you don’t already know any Avangard Players, join the PaperDemon ARPG Discord and ask for volunteers!



    - Visual Art must be Fullbody, Coloured, and contain a Standard Background.

    - Literature Art must be a minimum of 700 words.  Each participating dragon must add an additional 150 Words.

    - A Dracostryx or an Avangard character must be present in the entry.  These will count as other ARPG for the SP Bonus.



    - +6 Event SP

    - x1,000 Pearls

    - x1 Silver Conch

    - x10 Iron Bar

    - Storm Petrel companion

    - Badge for participation on each dragon added.
