All About Pufflings!

As most of you know, Ozimals has been working on Pufflings. We are thrilled to be able to give you details about their upcoming release!  First, let’s talk for a few minutes about the origins of the Pufflings. We want to share with you the story of Ozma’s Birthday Party and the Pufflings of Oz.

Ozma is the Empress of the Land of Oz, and every year, her birthday is celebrated throughout Oz as a holiday. She receives gifts from all over Oz, but the best one is always from Glinda, the Good Witch of the South, who creates a new fantastic enchantment each year. On Ozma's last birthday, Glinda was inspired by a visit to the royal kitchens, and used her magic to turn a huge platter of cream puffs into a flock of delightful, magical little Pufflings. They soon lived throughout the Emerald City, but Pufflings are adventurous creatures, and began to venture out into the rest of the land of Oz. Now, they are coming here, to make new friends and have adventures in the wider world.

So now that you know the story of how the Pufflings came to Oz, we’d like to share an overview of how they work.

Pufflings are different from the bunnies in that they are mainly server-side breedable pets.  What does this mean to you?  Fewer updates, more content, and being able to add content directly onto the server rather than having to do an update.  Earth Day Pufflings, Frank Baum’s Birthday Pufflings, and International Migratory Bird Day Pufflings?  All possible, and even without an update.  Updates will still be needed for features and additions, but this should cut down on those as much as possible.

First, let’s talk about the physical aspects of the Pufflings.  Pufflings are ten prims each. Upon release, they will have several feather colors, eye colors, different crests and tails to breed for.  Each Puffling will have a shown and a hidden trait for each physical genetic.

Owners will use a dialog-based system to interact with their Pufflings, similar to the bunnies. You will have the ability to add co-owners to your Puffling. To interact with a Puffling, click on him or her, and a menu will appear. There are a myriad of options for movement, interactions, and settings within this dialog menu.

*****

When properly cared for, your Pufflings will live forever.  You have the option of either feeding your Puffling or using a Perpetuation Potion once the Puffling is eligible.  Perpetuation Potion?  What’s that?  A Perpetuation Potion will magically allow your Puffling to live without the need for food.  It will work just like a non-perpetuated Puffling only it will not breed or eat.  Once a Puffling has been placed into perpetuation it will drop any remaining generations.  You will still be able to use your dialog menu for settings such as naming your Puffling.

*****

Pufflings have five stats:  Bliss, Noms, Charm, Zip, and Personality. 

Bliss is how happy a Puffling currently is.  This stat will rise and fall depending on the other stats of the Puffling.

Noms is the percentage of food.  Pufflings work on a scale from 0% not hungry to 100% hungry.  Once a Puffling reaches 100% Noms, he or she will disenchant.  Pufflings who are disenchanted are turned back into the cream puffs from which they were created.  To re-enchant a Puffling, simply feed the Puffling or use an Enchantment Powder on it.  Using an Enchantment Powder on the Puffling will immediately turn the cream puff back into a Puffling.  There will be three versions of food: Pet, Standard, and Zenith.  Pet food is for those of you who wish to have a pet Puffling.  Standard food is needed for breeding Pufflings, and Zenith food will give bonus stats to your Puffling so that it raises stats more quickly.  Once a Puffling has been fed Pet food, he or she will go into a breed cooldown of fourteen days.  Simply feeding the Puffling Standard or higher food will allow your Puffling to breed once the cooldown is over.

Charm is the love meter for Pufflings.  Once a Puffling meets the requirements to start growing love--75%+ Bliss and 25%+ Zip--the Charm will slowly build.  Once it reaches 100%, your Puffling is ready to breed.  If you prefer, you may buy Love Grubs, which will instantly boost a Puffling’s Charm by 10%.

Zip is how much energy your Puffling has.  A Puffling will gain and lose Zip during the day depending on his or her activities and normal life cycle.  Once a Puffling reaches 0% Zip, the Puffling will go to sleep.  The Puffling will sleep for eight hours to recover all 100% Zip.  Once the Puffling reaches 100% Zip, the Puffling will awaken and greet the day with a friendly chirp.  You may wake up a sleeping Puffling by using the dialog menu.

Personality is a stat that shows how much time you have spent with a Puffling.  To boost personality you can hold your Puffling; in the future, you will have more options, and will be able to play games with your Puffling, and give him or her special reward items.  You may gain 1.0% a day while holding your Puffling--it takes two hours to build the full 1.0%.  By raising your Puffling’s Personality percentage you will unlock new features and fun things for your Pufflings.  This is not a required stat for your Pufflings, but you will get more out of the game if you spend the time to increase it.

*****

Let’s talk a little about Puffling breeding.

Puffling breeding is very simple.  Pufflings have ten generations.  This means you can breed your Puffling ten times total.  Once your Puffling is seven days or older, there are two ways for your Pufflings to breed.  First, you can bond your Puffling to another one, so that they are bound and only breed with each other. Bonds must be renewed between breedings. Otherwise, you can allow the Pufflings to chose their own mates just by having them in the same vicinity of other Pufflings ready to breed. 

When a Mommy Puffling and a Daddy Puffling love each other very much, the Daddy Puffling, once his stats indicate that he is ready to mate, will do a mating dance for the Mother.  The parents’ stats must be 100% Charm, more than 75% Bliss and more than 25% Zip.  If these conditions are met, you can click the Daddy Puffling and choose the option “Preen” under the interaction button to instantly breed the two parents, or you can let nature take its course and let them breed when ready.  This option does have a time-out of five minutes, so use it wisely!

Once two parents have had a baby Puffling, an Egg will appear to the side of the Mother.  The Puffling Egg will display stats of the Puffling inside.  The Egg *will* show if the baby inside is a special Puffling.  The Egg is a single prim with options for the owner to use by clicking and changing dialog options.

*****

Special Pufflings are called Paragons.  There are two versions of Paragons: a Holiday Paragon and a Natural Paragon.  A Holiday Paragon is any Paragon that Ozimals releases for a limited time, usually for Holidays. Natural Paragons are Pufflings created via a rare chance when you breed two Pufflings on their final generations.  There are no special traits to match for a Natural Paragon; it is only necessary that the parents are both on their final generation for the chance at a Natural Paragon.

Paragons have the unique ability to display any trait even if the Puffling doesn’t carry it.  That means that if you get a Paragon with a Fleur crest visible, that might not be one of the traits carried by that Puffling.  Clicking the Paragon once, as the owner, will display your Puffling’s traits in local chat.  Non-Owners will also receive a menu where they can see the traits listed.

*****

The Pufflings have a special method of introducing new traits into the population; this method is called Golden Egg Time.  Golden Egg Time (or GET for short) is a new feature for Ozimals that we think will be well received by the community.  During certain periods of time, a random percentage of all eggs created by any Pufflings are "Golden Eggs".

Golden Eggs can be produced by any breeding Puffling, regardless of age or generations remaining. The baby in the Egg will have a new shown trait or traits specific to that episode of GET.  This will be the only method to get the new trait/traits.  Ozimals will let the beginning of a Golden Egg Time be a surprise to the breeders, but we will announce when it ends.  The length of GET will vary from period to period.

The baby's other traits will be completely random, like those of a starter egg--the parents' genetics will have no say in the rest of the traits. These eggs and babies will be noted in Ozaria as GET babies so that the genetics shift is explained.

*****

Ozaria is the one-stop social website for all of your Ozimals friends. Whether you’re looking for a particular Puffling or Bunny, or just checking to make sure your Ozimals pets are updated to the latest version, you can do all of this and more!  Ozaria will offer you up-to-date stats, news and information. 

*****
          
You may choose to send your Puffling to live at the Royal Aviary once your Puffling is 30 days old.  The Aviarius will give you tokens based on the following criteria.  A Puffling can be worth 20 tokens in total.  The Puffling must be older than 30 days and never disenchanted to receive your full reward.  If your Puffling has ever been disenchanted, the reward is cut in half to ten tokens, with an additional one token removed per disenchantment.  This means that a Puffling that has disenchanted one time would receive nine tokens in total.  A Puffling that has disenchanted ten times will receive zero tokens.  You may also turn in a Puffling Egg for one token via the dialog menu from the egg.
