Server Maintenance TodayPosted 10 months ago :: Last edited 10 months ago by Tony
Our server host is doing some maintenance today, so the site may be spotty or have some unexpected errors.
Service should be back to normal tomorrow morning.
Thanks for your patience in the meantime and be sure to check out our Discord Server for more activity!
Happy Birthday Keepers of Eniv!Posted 10 months ago :: Last edited 10 months ago by Tony
August is our one year anniverary for Keepers of Eniv!
This marks 1 year of our release to our Kickstarter backers (who we want to thank again, because we couldn't have done it without you!)
To celebrate, we have a few fun updates;
Enivi Raffle Reminder
We have an awesome Enivi raffle going on this month and it's easy to claim 100 free Gems!
Check out this video by our event Co-Host, Siren the Gamer to find out how to get your free Gems and free Raffle Tickets!
We have a few fun party supplies to customize your Enivi for the month.
Party hats, holographic garland, and our classic balloons are available now!
We also have a huge variety of bows, including our special "Keepers of Eniv" themed bow!
Rare Color-Changing Potion
Finally, you can change your base or marking color to uncommon and rare colors with the Rare Color-Changing Potion!
Currently, you can find this restocking occasionally in Sophie's Shoppe, but as the name says it is a rare item.
So, which colors can it be used for?
- Silver (metallic)
- Gold/Gilded (metallic)
These can be applied to your full base, a specific trait, or a marking.
Note: if you apply it to your base, you can apply it to your tail, ears, etc. Markings would be seperate.
Seasonal Fish Traits Update
After some discussion, we realized we made the seasonal fish traits a little too difficult to obtain.
We wanted them to be challenging, but not impossible, so we've rolled them back a bit.
Shark Fins, Oceanic Back Scales, and Oceanic Tails have been lowered from 25 to 10 required elements.
Oceanic Face Scales and Oceanic Feathering have been lowered to 5 required elements.
We hope this helps you all earn these traits!
Some Other Smaller Site Updates
- The error when players received when trying to level up their Enivi has been resolved.
- Our item and Enivi sales have been moved from the Discord server to the forums to try to help the forums become more active.
You can still post links to your sales in the Discord server to gain more attention for them, but the ad itself should be on our forums now.
- Yes, the amount of cheese we've been giving away is intentional ;)
Want to be a closer part of the communty? Be sure to join our Discord server!
The Siren's Call - A Co-Hosted Event!Posted 10 months ago :: Last edited 10 months ago by Tony
A strange melody seems to be calling to you from the ocean.
Will your Enivi follow?
The Siren's Call is a Co-Hosted event brought to you by Keepers of Eniv and Siren the Gamer!
Be sure to check out Siren's YouTube Channel and Discord Community!
All month long you'll have opportunities to explore and follow the trail to discover the mysterious sirens that have appeared through Eniv.
Collect the shells you find. You'll be able to trade them for special Siren's Call genes and accessories!
We have another scavenger hunt for you all, but this one is a little special.
Be prepared to do some off-site exploring through Siren's pages as well!
Getting stuck? Don't worry, this month our staff members are prepped to help you with these hidden shells.
Get your first clue here;
Siren is also giving away three beautiful, custom Enivi!
You can find all the info on how to enter the raffle in their video here!
New Items and traits
We have a few other new items and traits for this event!
From Siren's Call Ears, Tail, Hair, Shell Horns, and so much more.
Legendary Traits can be found in the Event Shop and can be purchased with Shells you find.
Rare and Uncommon traits can be found in Sophie's Shoppe.
Also, don't forget to pick up this month's Exclusive My Sweet Enivi doll from Sophie's Shoppe!
Another big thank you to Siren for co-hosting this event with us! We're very excited to have had their input this month!
Bug Hunt UpdatePosted 10 months ago :: Last edited 10 months ago by Tony
Looking for what to do with your bug collection?
Well, it seems like the bug hunt has brought some Enivi closer to them than we'd have thought.
New craftable items like the Butterfly Soul, Dragonfly Soul, Firefly Overlay, and Butterfly Friends Overlay are able to be crafted now!
Go pay a visit to alchemy and crafting to get started.
On a seperate note, we'll have a very special announcement coming on Monday!
Enjoy your weekend and we'll see you then!
Community Love and Site UpdatesPosted 10 months ago :: Last edited 10 months ago by Tony
This is a smaller update but an important one all the same!
As you may or may not know, Keepers of Eniv gives special rewards for doing good deeds in real life.
One of our core beliefs is that we, as a community, can help make the world a better place.
We've always prompted our players to do things to better their communities in real life, but we realize the process of getting rewards for random acts of kindness were a little complicated.
The Community Care Prompt has been created to show all the information you'll need, but as always, if you have any questions we're here for you!
Rewards include Star Shards, Adoption Tokens, and the Community Love Award for your profile.
We also wanted to let you all know that the leveling bug has been resolved!
You can level up your characters and add additional points to their stats again without any error.
Now your Enivi can be a little less worried while traveling through the Dark Forest.
Site Sale Enivi
Another small reminder that we still have a handful of speciality Enivi for sale!
Be sure to check them out before they disappear!
We hope you're having a fun and safe summer!
Double Roleplay Points All Month!Posted 11 months ago :: Last edited 11 months ago by Tony
Are you a writer or roleplayer looking to earn some extra Star Shards?
Never roleplayed before but are interested in getting into it?
Well, this month is all about you!
Today through July 31st (ending August 1st at 12:00AM PST) we'll be giving double Star Shard base points for roleplaying done on the Discord server or Forums.
Here's how submitting roleplays for points works;
- Have fun roleplaying with the community or a friend.
These can take place on the forums, on our Discord server, or in private, but remember that all parties participating must be alright with you submitting their work to the gallery as well.
- Submit the roleplay to the gallery as a literary submission.
When doing this be sure to note which areas are your responses - you'll only be awarded for your own work.
If the story is being submitted with the work of more than one person (which it likely will haha), mark the other participants as collab partners. Be sure to note whose responses are whose so we can make sure everyone gets the correct rewards.
Only one person should be submitting the work, with credit given to the other people involved.
- Continue to roleplay and submit the pieces to the gallery for more rewards!
If you're going to be submitting more than one transcript for one roleplay, we suggest marking them as "Chapters" or "Episodes".
- All site rules apply.
- If the roleplay is private, all participants must be alright with the submission being included in the gallery.
- It's fine to add some filler NPCs (shop keepers, quest givers, etc), but the main characters must be official Enivi (ie: Enivi you own).
- Only the base amount of Star Shards are doubled (meaning the interaction bonus won't be doubled).
- The multiple character bonus can only be applied if you (an individual, not a group) are playing more than one character, and both characters are actively engaging in the roleplay.
For example, if you're playing a Lunaesi and an Ortusi and the Lunaesi is doing all the talking, and the Ortusi says one line and is simply there, the Ortusi doesn't qualify for the bonus, just like our literary submissions.
All-in-all, these are scored as collaborative writing sessions!
If you have any questions, just let us know!
New Enivi, New Items, New Traits, Summer Fishing - A Huge Update!Posted 11 months ago :: Last edited 11 months ago by Tony
It's time for some summer beach fun!
We've got a lot of updates for you, so let's get started!
New Sales Enivi and Sales Enivi Changes
Four new Enivi have been added to the market!
As like before, these Enivi have custom, hand-painted markings and some of the summer Event markings as well.
So, what's changed?
The Enivi now come with small snips of backstory for you to build on if you'd like.
Using these backstories is entirely optional, just like their names and pronouns, you can change these however you'd like.
The prices start at a small $25 and raise from there depending on markings and Enivi rarity (there's even a Druaesi this month! ). Be sure to check them out here:
The Druaesi is an auction Enivi, but the other three are first-come-first-served so be sure to check them out today!
Speaking of special Enivi...
The Trevor Project
Thank you to everyone who donated to The Trevor Project last month!
We managed to raise $150 for the charity and we're so thankful to our community for it.
The winner of the raffle for the Pride Month Enivi was Medd-Lee - congratulations on your new, very rainbowy, Enivi!
Have a suggestion for a charity? Post a comment here.
We've got an array of new summer accessories for you to make your beach day special!
While you're putting on your Sunscreen, don't forget your new Innertube and Fruity Drink while you build your Sand Castle under your Picnic Lights.
Your Enivi can also go swimming with the In the Sea Background and High Tide Foreground set.
Summer Fishing Changes
Summer fish have started to appear in Still Mirror Lake, and they'll only be here until autumn, so be sure to catch them while you can.
Sightings of catfish, seahorses, and even great white sharks have been reported by Enivi, so grab your lures and head to the lake.
You'll be able to use these new fish in alchemy and crafting to create a few new traits and a companion variation;
Like the fish, these are only here for a limited time.
New Traits in Sophie's Shoppe
Finally, we have some new traits in Sophie's Shoppe, Short Feathering and Fleabitten.
These are smaller traits, but ones we felt you would all enjoy.
A few Site Updates
- We're still working on the leveling bug, but don't worry, we're hoping to have it sorted out soon and will have a mini-event to celebrate when we do!
- We've been getting a lot of questions about bug uses, don't worry, more things will spring up through the summer that are sure to get you buzzin' with excitement.
- We've clarified a few things in our Star Shard Guide, and changed the way characters are counted in literary and visual art to be more fair to (and increase the Star Shard output to) literary artists. (Don't worry, visual artists haven't lost anything, but we've increased what you get per character in literary art submissions)
We're giving away one random item from this news post to everyone who answers;
Which herd is your favorite and why?
Weekend Fun UpdatePosted 11 months ago :: Last edited 11 months ago by Tony
Just a small update today for everyone!
A new scavanger hunt has started!
"OH NO!" A beautiful Enivi cries out for help. "I've lost my precious shoe at the ball and now it's nowhere to be found. Will you help me find it? The last time I remember seeing it I was looking at how to dye my dress."
You can start to help her look on the Event Page.
Here's a reminder that we're still doing our Charity Drive for The Trevor Project.
Some of the items related to it won't be made available again until next year, so be sure to donate before the month is up!
Don't forget that Monday night is Bingo night!
Join us on the Discord Server for a night of number calling and prize giving haha.
It's summer, so along with our bug hunt we're also hunting (and squashing) in-game bugs.
We're aware of the issue with leveling Enivi, and are working on getting that resolved as soon as we can! Don't worry, your XP is still being recorded, so you'll be able to level up again soon.
We've updated the World Lore page to be more clear.
Otherwise, we're prepping for some fun things next month as the Festival of the Sun winds down and we move into our general summer fun and
Site Staff Weekend Break
Our site staff works incredibly hard and we appreciate them very much!
We all need a break from time to time, so we'll be taking an extended weekend on July 2nd and 3rd (we'll be processing until 12pm PST), and will be holding all processing on July 4th for the holiday in America so people can spend time with their families as needed.
If you have an emergency, feel free to tag admin in the Discord server, but all non-emergency matters will be put on hold until after our break.
Thanks very much for your understanding!
We'll see you all Monday!
Fight for your Life! Battle Update, Scars and Wounds, New Flora and Fauna, and much more!Posted 11 months ago :: Last edited 11 months ago by Tony
UPDATE: It looks like someone lost a bunch of Ancient Ortusi Shoes. Can you help collect them? Find the details to get you started on the Event Page!
Our Battle Prompts have finally arrived! Fight against NPCs or other Enivi for treasure and glory!
How Battling Works
Battling is fairly easy. Select your opponent and create your prompt. It can be an image, writing, song - anything you'd like that fits the theme.
From here, submit the prompt as you normally would. The prompt is then reviewed by staff and a roller that uses your character's stats, any attached items and gear, and a small random chance much like racing, is rolled to see who won.
Participants will always receive the listed rewards, but the winners could stand to gain up to double the prizes.
The rewards can range from small weaponry to some Legendary traits and 100 additional Star Shards!
Your Enivi can also become visibly injured or get scars during battle. There's more on that below.
The prompts can be found under "Explore Eniv".
At last, the long awaited Scars update.
There are now 24 different kinds of scars and visible injuries your Enivi can walk away from a battle with. These range from bloody nose scratches to light, healing scars along the side.
We do need to note a few things regarding these injuries and scars;
- Kids cannot have injuries or scars. They also cannot battle. This includes "Forever Kids" created with Babies' Breath.
- We understand that not everyone likes the idea of scars or injuries on their Enivi. These are optional. You are not in any way required to use them if your Enivi gets "injured" in battle.
- Injuries are purely cosmetic at this time.
- We give our players a lot of artistic freedom with their item uses and you may recolor these items and change the positioning of them (in other words, your Druaesi may have green blood if you'd like!). You may not, however, use these assets to mimic self-harm situations.
If you or someone you know is in need of help, please contact a help hotline or text 741741 in the United States to be connected to the Crisis Text Line. You are important. You matter.
- There's only one item for each of the types of scars/injuries, but there are 3 versions of each; Fresh Wounds, Fresh Scars, and Healing Scars. You can use whichever version you'd like, and may change them out once applied. So, if you wanted to start with a fresh injury and keep that for a while before have the scar heal and fade, that's 100% fine and you won't need another applicator unless you're changing the color (changing blood from red to green) or the positioning in a noticeable way.
- These assets can be found under Accessories in the Art Packs.
New Flora and Fauna
To go with the battle system with have some battle NPCs.
You can find more information about them in the World Lore under Flora and Fauna.
Ever wonder where that Mysterious Slime comes from? You may not want the answer...
Exploring the Dark Forest
While you're exploring Eniv you may have noticed a new game has been added.
Exploring is a new daily that can be completed up to 5 times a day (for all accounts, not just Premium). Your Enivi is sent into an area where they explore and forage for an hour. When they return, they'll bring back what they've found.
Right now, the Dark Forest is the only location we have available, but more will be coming very soon and the page for the game will be updated to look nicer as well.
Festival of the Sun
The Festival of The Sun is still in full swing!
Don't forget to participate in the event prompts to earn Ancient Ortusi Shoes for the Holiday shop.
Keep an eye out for them to appear on random pages of the site over the weekend as well!
Site Holiday Vacations
We love our community and we love our staff members!
To ensure the mental health of our staff we're going to be officially "closing" on some holidays.
Don't worry, the site will still be playable, but what this means is that we won't be processing anything until the following day. In other words, character updates, prompt submissions, gallery submissions and non-emergency reports will all be put on hold while the site is on "vacation".
Here's a list of days we'll be taking off;
- New Years Eve
- New Years Day
- 4th of July
- Thanksgiving Eve (1/2 Day - we stop all processing at 12PM EST)
- Christmas Eve (1/2 Day - we stop all processing at 12PM EST)
- Christmas Day
Thanks very much for your understanding and support!
- The issue with Enivi not leveling up correctly was resolved (yay!)
- The issue with staff being unable to correctly approve prompts has been resolved.
- With the new iPhone update there has been an issue with uploading via mobile for iPhone users. We've consulted 3 coders and, unfortunately, it sounds like this is out of our hands for now. We'd recommend using a different device to upload images to the Gallery if you encounter any issues.
