About the Shop:
............This is a project I've been working on for quite some time. I love the B/C and it's the only reason I returned to Gaia after being away for about a year. There's just nowhere else I'd rather be.
............Cheesiness aside, I've decided to finally start up this massive shop. At opening we'll have a over 100 lines between creatures, animals, humanoids and items, all drawn by several different artists. There will be Dragons, Hippocampus, Phoenixes, Gryphons and Kirins, along with an anthro version of each, tons of animal pets and quite a few items that will have different effects. Each of the creatures has 7 stages, from egg to elder and special extra stages (like angelic or demonic) and even a special breeding stage that is essentially a couple's picture.
............I plan to try and encourage RP through rewards without making it a requirement for anything. There will always be a way to get something you can earn through RP, though it might be a little more difficult. There will be a main story, uncovered in metaplot, and I feel that the world is coming together nicely so far, but I do want participation from everyone. I want players to have a place in shaping the story (hence the naming contest for the continents, and that's just the first step).
............Most importantly, I'm not in this for the gold! I want to do as many free things as possible. Sure, if I have guest colorists, there will be gold paid to them, but I don't actually plan on taking a single gold the shop makes. There are prices on certain things, since I couldn't think of any other way to keep them from having RP requirements, but not overworking myself in the process, but that gold will go to paying guest colorists and possibly some more artists in the future.
......11/15/12 - Reopening IT for hiring after artist dropout. This is why we won't actually open til we have the art. <3
