Counting EXP / Official Counter

EXP is obtained by drawing images or writing/roleplaying your Felvarg, below we have broken down the details of what each image will be worth. The above EXP counter will detail any qualifying entry you have created by filling in the provided form. Members will track EXP gained in their official trackers and level by gaining EXP.


Recolored artwork is worth half of its initial value. Recolored artwork consists of images used multiple times to color different Felvargs on the same image.

Would you consider this background to be complex or Simple

Would a knitted felvarg count as "sculpture", then?
MrsEvelyn Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes it would! :heart: As long as we are still able to see who they are at first glance and follow the requirements.
Hakaishi Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2017
The EXP calculator on the site has "Fullbody Image" written as "Fullbody Lined"; does this still mean the same thing regardless? Like, if I make a piece that is fully a painterly style as in no visible lineart due to full rendering, can I still tick the "Fullbody Lined" option to get the EXP for a fullbody image?
Ulfrheim Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2017
Hi there!

Yes you can. :heart: Sorry about the delayed response, we do take styles into account. As long as it's fully rendered, it means the same thing regardless.

How much exp does a handler give? (As a bonus)
BreezyDraws Featured By Owner May 11, 2017
(Not an Admin, but)
As this is a Wild species, there are no handlers, so I don't think there is a bonus.
Zaleho Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Just double checking... backgrounds only give exp if on full body art?
Ulfrheim Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2017
If the image exceeds 500 x 500 it will award background experience. It just needs to imply the Felvarg is in the background in some way.

Just curious, but if you roleplay with someone, do you just count up all the posts you did or the entire thing between you and the other person/felvarg for literature credit?

Also, how do you tally up comic pages? Is is per panel or is there like an overall thing?
Ulfrheim Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2017
You would count the entire thing for literature credit. 

As for comic pages, we don't have a system of EXP for that just yet. However, for now, you could tally it per panel.

Okay, thank you :3

Is it possible to get shading and colour bonuses with chibis, or does it not matter how detailed they are, they're always just 1 EXP?
Just checking so I count my little batch right once they've been uploaded.
Ulfrheim Featured By Owner Edited Feb 19, 2017
You can get shading and colored bonuses with chibis! The EXP would be as follows:

CHIBI/SPRITE (Fullbody option ONLY)
Icon 0001 Artist by Ulfrheim Chibi/Sprite [Chi] +.5EXP
Icon 0001 Artist by Ulfrheim Colored [Chi+c] +.5EXP
Icon 0001 Artist by Ulfrheim Shaded [Chi+cs] +1EXP

Do you get any experience for animated pieces?
Ulfrheim Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2017
We are adding more forms of exp to our allowance list, please check back in a few days and animation will indeed be on there. <3

Was "Battleground" renamed "Feral Recruiting"? I was trying to calculated the exp for my two recruiting entries and I couldn't remember if that's what it was.
TaiBerry Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Feral Recruiting is what takes place at the battlegrounds so they are the same thing.

Sorry for the confusion!
