'Ello, and welcome to Delphinidaes!
We are a DeviantART Roleplaying Game in the same nature as Domain-of-the-Wolf and The-Golden-Butterfly, with some Art Roleplaying Game features taken inspiration from Tokotas, DracoStryx, and other ARPGs. We are based around marine mammals, primarily those in the oceanic dolphin family (or "delphinids")!
All characters depicted are considered anthropomorphic. We may stray from realism and dip into fantasy at times, so please make sure you are okay with that when or if you participate.
To get your first dolphin, please visit this link.
We provide two gameplay options. The first mode is known as Classic mode, in which you will create your own reference sheet artwork, prepare and participate in your own roleplays, and focus on leveling up and increasing the stats of your character. The second mode is ARPG mode, in which you will be given a template to fill in and place on the reference sheet, be provided with prompts and activities to partake in, and focus on ranking up and earning achievements and prestige. Both mode members will be capable of participating in massive group events and story plot lines. Please pick your mode carefully, as once it is selected, your chances to swap modes and exchange dolphins will be few and far in between!
For more information on Classic Mode and ARPG Mode, please visit this link.
Once you own a dolphin and you have selected your mode, you must now select whether your dolphin will roam the Southern Ocean or the Northern Ocean. All dolphins have an unspoken agreement, going back many, many centuries, that each Ocean will be ruled by their own respective pod; a massive group collecting all delphinids in that Ocean. Whether you participate within the pod or not, you will be registered by their leadership figure as a member of their faction, and perhaps expected to aid them when or if the time ever comes.
To find out more about the Southern Super Pod and Northern Super Pod, please visit this link.
We use a currency system known as Clams. Clams can be earned in small amounts by submitting any artwork, in moderate amounts by completing prompts or quests, or in large amounts by heavily impacting and improving the world of Delphinidaes. In return, they can be spent on a wide variety of bonuses, upgrades, and cosmetics, can be traded between members, and can even be used to purchase unique plot lines and relationships with NPCs and the world around them!
For more details on how to obtain Clams, how to track them, and how they affect your dolphin in the world, please visit this link.
Delphinidaes was born from a great inspiration and interest from these animals. Despite their stunning intelligence and beauty, they are not quite as "mainstream" as other animals on DeviantART such as cats, dogs, wolves, horses, etc. but we aim to try our best and make this a fun and comfortable community, and an enjoyable and compelling RP environment nonetheless.
Thank you for visiting our page, and we hope you stick around for a bit and consider joining!
