✦ Happy November, Sushi Rolls! ✦

This month's newsletter reveals the mid-festival update, Dream Soosh Raffle, Secret Soosh sign-ups, and advent calendar details!

If you have any questions, please ask us in the community discord server. Enjoy!

3rd Place:
Haute Potion + Autumn Pet Box

2nd Place:
Sooshapon Token + Autumn Trait Item (Color Change, Glowy Cheeks, Object Head)

1st Place: Smoked Lava Cheese Buns

output_R44eg4.gif

✦ The mid-festival update is live! ✦

Welcome to the usual mid-event update!

Seems like it's time for some sub quests to those who have already completed the mainline quests, or maybe those who just want to have a little more fun during the event!
The Sub Quests prompt is now live!

The Holiday Shoppe is stocked with our free Monster Candy Loot Box - just an extra 100 event currency to help you decide on a minor purchase or maybe save up for a bigger one!
Check out the shop!
 
✦ Mainline Quest End Dates ✦

As a reminder, the end dates are different for the main quests so our team has plenty of time to grade everything in time to prevent any rejections that cancel out the rest of the quest submissions.

Part I: November 28th
Part II: November 29th
Part III: November 30th

Prompts above close at 11:59pm EST on their respective dates.

output_R44eg4.gif

✦ Secret Soosh Signups ✦

Every year when the colder months begin to creep upon Culario, sooshes from all over join together in the Sanctuary to celebrate the Winter Snowfall Festival. A particular favorite activity is the exchanging of art between sooshes in the "Secret Soosh" event!
So come sign up and get paired with a random secret partner in this exciting art exchange event!

Only 50 members will be accepted for organizational reasons, so sign up soon!
If we do not hit the limit before the end of the month, entries will close on November 26th.

✦ Dream Soosh Custom Raffle ✦

Nov 06 - Nov 30 @ 11:59pm EST

Yes! Our dream soosh raffle is back again for our 2023 Winter Advent Calendar.
For the past four years, the final spot in our annual advent calendar has been reserved for a free custom by fawncore for a random member of the Sushi Dogs community. This year is no different!

To enter, simply fill out the entry form using the link below. The winner will be decided by random chance, with the design revealed on December 25th. More information and rules are provided on the dream soosh giveaway entry form. Entries close on November 30.

✦ 2023 Advent Calendar ✦

This year for the Sushi Dog advent calendar we are celebrating that warm and fuzzy feeling the holidays give you. And more so what food really makes you feel that way!
Do you look forward to something warm and savory to share with your loved ones, or a special sweet treat when no ones looking? What food gives you that sense of nostalgia and hominess that you just can't find any other time of the year?

Like last year, the themes will be shown in advance as "A gift for someone who loves ___", but we are going to do a twist on this with the gift being for someone who loves a key ingredient in the dish!

Our focus is to showcase our love of food, and thus have a Soosh represent the same love! Of course, the exact food won't be shown, but we hope the mention is enough to help you decide on potential adopted Sooshes... and they still need to be revealed on their respective dates, of course!

output_R44eg4.gif
And that's all for this month! We hope you are as excited as we are! 
As always, feel free to comment or send us a message if you have any questions!

✦ Happy Autumn, Sushi Rolls! ✦

This month's newsletter reveals the anniversary raffle winners, the new Autumn Harvest Festival, and plans for this month regarding sales!

If you have any questions, please ask us in the community discord server. Enjoy!

Sushi Dog Discord

✦ Anniversary Event Raffle Winners ✦

We hope everyone enjoyed the raffles for the event! 10 years is a long time and a big deal, so we had to go all out for it!
There's quite a few new Sooshes heading into new homes, so let's go ahead and reveal the owners:

✦ Raffle Winners ✦

✦ The Autumn Harvest Festival is live! ✦

The Autumn Harvest Festival is live on-site!

This event has two separate questlines you get locked into once you submit a first part - it's personal preference!
Are you a stickler to traditions, or are you one to change it up once in a while?
Check out the prompts!

The Holiday Shoppe is stocked with the new festival items! As usual, we have 3 new seasonal traits, a pet box, and the raffle ticket to enter the Autumn Harvest raffle!
What are the prizes? Wait and see during the mid-event update in November!
Check out the shop!

Since the shop still has previous seasonal traits for those still deciding which trait they desire, here are the new trait items for easy findings:
Fallen Leaf - grants COLOR CHANGE
Glow Stick - grants GLOWY CHEEKS
Headless Plush - grants OBJECT HEAD
These traits have their descriptors to clarify how each one works, so please check them out in our traits guide!
 
✦ Prompt Changes ✦

We love the community's enthusiasm on finishing every prompt before events end, but sadly we have had to make some adjustments to prevent repeated issues and delays in closing events!
Questlines will now have different deadlines for each part - the final part being the final day of the event. Each part beforehand will end a day earlier than the one after.
For clarity and easy understanding, here are the due dates for this event's questlines:

Part I: November 28th
Part II: November 29th
Part III: November 30th

Prompts above close at 11:59pm EDT on their respective dates.

These changes are to ensure members can correct any issues regarding their first parts - in the past, if you submitted all three at once and had any rejected, it could prevent you from getting any event rewards if you waited until the last day!
We don't mean to be strict, but we cannot handle multiple part last minute submissions, so please try to keep these dates in mind. Don't forget to read over the prompt guidelines thoroughly, or ask in the server if you are confused on what is needed.
Thank you everyone!

✦ Frightfully Fun Festivities ✦

October has a long-standing tradition of sales that we are still sticking to... but also changing it up!

✦ Trick-or-Treat Gacha Sale ✦

The artists have been chosen and set to their themes!
The GAs for the Trick-or-Treat sale are:
Rocco, Tamurachii, care, Kyu, Alexdream12, and Miizue!

What are the themes, you wonder? That'd be too much info!

What I can give you is̸̢͉͖̺̖̻͕̩̈̏͂̏͑̍͑̎̎͆̐͊́̆͠ ̵̡̨̥̼̤̞̦͆͛͊̀̆̀̈̒̒͜ͅt̶̛̯̘̫̙̠̖̬̻̐̉̔́̓̀̈́̇̒͂̑̏̾͘h̵̞̑́́̔ḭ̶̯̤͙̭̬͓̤͉͕̼̲̝̩͐̔̑̽͐̂̅̓̎̾s̶̟̫̤͙̘̟͇̤͕̣̯͈͋̽̇̀̀͘͠:̸̲̠̥̝̈́

And lastly... seems like there are two Sooshes rarer than the others in the mix..!

✦ Weekly Mythical Auctions ✦

That's right - we're doing the mythical auctions for three weeks leading up to the gacha sale!
Wait... didn't I mention something about changing up the tradition? Nocte's convinced me - seems like it isn't just Vampsooshes that will be in the mythical spotlight this month! Sounds like a tricky mythical is finding ways to get into the festivities.

Auctions may be revealed earlier on-site as Star will be on vacation during the last two, but comments will not be opened until 12pm EDT on their respective dates.
Carl will generously offer his help again by notifying in our discord server when auctions are live, so don't forget to join and pick up our Soosh Sales role!

Auctions are on Saturdays @ 12pm EDT, with end dates 2 days after auction start

October 7th: Tamurachii
October 14th: linborghini
October 21st: Ponkochi

✦ Well Wishes to the Wedded Couple ✦

For those who didn't know...
Our owner, fawncore got married this past Saturday!

I got to attend the beautiful wedding, and it was a blast! Many cherished moments, memories, and fun laughs were had. Even if I was shy and didn't know anyone, I still had to hold back tears from watching one of my closest friends enter this new stage in her life.
I hope Kayy had the wedding of her dreams, and all of us on the team are so happy for her!


If you were unable to sign the last minute wedding gift to her, feel free to leave your congrats and messages here. Even if you already signed, feel free to say it again! Her and her husband are a powercouple that both jointly work on the site and have shaped it into what it is today. I am eternally grateful for them!


If you missed the photos, feel free to hop into the photo-gallery channel in our server to check them out and reply more personally to her!
Once again; Congrats, Kayy!

✦ Happy August, Sushi Rolls! ✦

This month marks the last half of the Summer Starlight Festival, reveals the Art Fight Soosh Raffle Winners, and has news about the upcoming Sushi Dogs Anniversary! An entire decade of Sooshes - wow!

If you have any questions, please ask us in the community discord server. Enjoy!

Sushi Dog Discord

 

Art Fight Raffle Winners✦

This year's Art Fight was jam-packed with tons of Soosh art! So much so that it took a few extra days to make sure everything was approved and ready to go.

Here are the winners for each Soosh!
 


Team Vampire Raffle Prize
Winner: Mooncyder




Team Werewolf Raffle Prize
Winner: Silvetz

These Sooshes are transferred to their new owners, and are on a month-long cooldown. Their pets are also character-bound, so they will always have their little friend... it's in their inventories!

Please give a special thanks to Tamurachii for offering to design these prizes last minute (seriously, I'm mildly terrified) just for an incentive for the community. We got a ton of entries this year so we hope the grind was fun for participating members!

✦ Summer Starlight Festival ✦

New sub-quests for the festival went up earlier this month! Now there are new ways to earn tickets and reign your team supreme.
Of course, we need to show off the raffle prizes to make sure you guys know what you are aiming for!

It's also time to reveal the raffle prizes:
 

Team Drink


1st Place Prize: Sunrise Soda Sushi Dog
2nd Place: Sooshapon Token + 1 Summer Seasonal Trait Item
3rd Place: Haute Potion + Any Summer Pet Box

Team Food


1st Place Prize: Choco-dipped Banana Sushi Dog
2nd Place: Sooshapon Token + 1 Summer Seasonal Trait Item
3rd Place: Haute Potion + Any Summer Pet Box

These prizes are so summery, are they not? Hopefully we see some more fun seasonal traited Sooshes in the future!
Once the festival ends, we will be giving out patches for these findings:
Winning Team
Losing Team
Loyalists
Traitors

These patches are simply awards, so please do not be pressured to stick to a team if you want a chance at winning either Soosh. Do note that you can only win once, so you'll be granted the highest placed prize. Thanks so much everyone!

Keep an eye out sooshlings - seems like there's an abundance of Ocean Splashers washing up, so look out for surprise drops in the discord server! They are not confined to any channel, so keep an eye out in case you can take some extra event currency home. There does seem to be more pet boxes in the shop. Where did they come from?

output_R44eg4.gif

Soosh Sales ✦

There is an auction batch this month on the 12th - this Saturday!
Theme? Well, I think Sooshes are my favorite animal, but there are some other cool ones.

Seems like there is a crowd of Sooshes coming in next month... It's never been seen before!

output_R44eg4.gif

10 Years ✦

Sushi Dogs turns 10 in two days! A whole decade of these sweet Sooshes!
Since the summer festival takes place in August, the anniversary event will continue to take place in September.

Seems like there will be 10 Sooshes to show off all throughout September! You'll have to keep your eyes peeled every Monday and Friday.
These will all be auctions until the final, grand reveal! So if you're looking for a brand new Soosh to commemorate the anniversary, you better start planning!
Not exciting enough? Well... each Soosh do have a new trait from this past year of festivals. If you can't decide what you're looking for, maybe write a list of your favorite seasonal traits and look out for them!

Here are the artists participating:
aisu Alexdream12 Kyu linborghini Miizue
pudipon Rannarbananar Starkindler Staryon Tamurachii

As usual, we will also open up forms to make an Anniversary MYO soosh! This is a free Soosh you can design that is trade-locked to your account. Make a sentimental design, a Soosh form of an existing beloved OC, or a design that you find fun to draw for future art! Each account can have one ANN-XXX design, so if you have never made one yet feel free to start thinking up some ideas.

That's it for this newsletter - we hope this busy season continues to give you guys much excitement!

output_R44eg4.gif

And that's all for this month! We hope you are as excited as we are! 
As always, feel free to comment or send us a message if you have any questions!

✦ Summer Starlight Festival ✦

It's time now Sooshes - which team will reign? Team Food or Team Drink?
The prompts are going live at 12pm! We ask that you stick to a Team this month, but if there is an obvious disbalance next month... maybe it'll be a good time to be a traitor to your team.

No worries though - more prompts will go live in August for the festival! Also, seems like there's supposed to be more pet boxes... what's that? You'll have to gift to a friend or foe? What could that even mean? Guess we'll find out!!
 

 

output_R44eg4.gif

Soosh Sales ✦

There is an auction this month on the 15th, so look out for it!
Otherwise, save you wallets for the mod batch or for another GA auction batch in August. We hope you love critters!

You might be asking if we already have a theme for this month's mod batch... personally I think it stinks!

✦ Happy Pride Month, Sushi Rolls! ✦

This month has our annual Summer DTE and the return of Adventures - we hope members have fun participating in this month's activities.

If you have any questions, please ask us in the community discord server. Enjoy!

Summer DTE ✦

Image

Looks like the Summer brought out these fun-loving Sooshes around - and what's this? Team Food vs Team Drink?
We'll discuss this team fight further down in the Newsletter!
 
It's that time of year: the annual Summer DTE! This year is packed with delicious designs by:
Alexdream12 , linborghini , Kyu , Rocco, and Tamurachii !
 
As this is a Draw-to-Enter, this means the Sooshes are won via raffle. All you have to do is make a nice piece of art for the Sooshes you desire!
You can only win one, so if your name is raffled off as a winner for a Soosh and you win another, it will be rerolled! This is to ensure more users can win a Sushi Dog (or Cat!) of their own.
There are multiple prizes per prompt, so feel free to enter if you also desire some site goodies!
 
Remember; these prompts are only open for the duration of June so please allot time to enter this month if you have your eyes on a lovely Soosh. 
Good luck everyone!

Check out the DTE Prompts!

1st Place Grand Prize: Spring Time Cake, Sushi Cat by aisu

Thank you, everyone!

This past year has been packed with new events and happenings, and it makes our days when the community expresses how much they love them. We're getting close to finishing our first year of seasonal festivals - just two more to go!

We hope you continue to enjoy them all and look forward to the new traits and items that come with each one.

The current Holiday Shoppe will still be open for another week for any last-minute purchases for those who haven't decided on what they wanted! Raffle tickets have been removed as well.

✦ Summer Starlight Festival ✦

I'm sure you're here wondering what the whole Team Food vs Team Drink deal is.
Looks like you're going to have to choose a team next month and fight for what is better: Food or Drinks!
 
Seems like the summer fills Sooshes with spirit - and every year, they're ready to fight for their chosen teams.
Teams are determined by users' choice, so don't feel pressured to be on a certain team if your Sooshes aren't fitting!
 
The Summer Festival will have prompts ready to show off why your side is better, as well as one for those who are participating in Art Fight as well!
What team are you choosing?

I heard Zero exclaiming that his insides are powered by gamer juice. Not sure what that means exactly, but he seems quite passionate.
Look forward to it, everyone!

output_R44eg4.gif

New Adventure Prompt ✦

Are you ready to resume your quest for mythical status? A new adventure prompt will be available this month!

Seems like there's a damsel in distress... in a tower...? What exactly is going on here?!

Find out when the prompt goes live on site, and have fun using your magic to save those in need!

 

output_R44eg4.gif

Soosh Sales ✦

We hope you guys don't mind a break from GA auctions!
We have one more auction batch of GA designs coming up this month, but after that there will be a break so the GAs can submit more designs to be sold in the future.
 
Moderator batches will continue as normal - so there are always chances to get a new Soosh for your own. Thank you so much!

 

output_R44eg4.gif

Balancing Changes ✦

Watch out: it's time for a patch to balance things!

Specifically in this: writing changes and magic questline adjustments.
 
Writing requirements have changed to require more effort from users. We do love writings by our community, but when an art rpg group has more writing entries than art entries in events, there is an issue.

Writing minimum requirements have been adjusted to be a minimum of 1000 words. We had lowered this in the past for users who claimed writing that many words was far too much, but with the influx of written entries we see that this is an easier alternative to artwork. This was never our intention!

Writing was always meant to be inclusive for community members who did not draw or were not confident in their art abilities. This was never meant to be an easier alternative for artists. Thus, we determined that changes to writing requirements were necessary.
That is not the only change for writing: we are now more thorough as to what we expect from members' written entries.

The requirements are laid out in the prompt guide page, so please read it over if you plan on submitting writings.
---------------
Lastly, to give the mods a bit more of a break from constant prompt submissions, we have limited the Magic Questline prompts to be submitted to once a month per user.
 
If you want to grind for carats, Oodles of Doodles was meant to fulfill that purpose. However, on many occasions our mods got flooded with those who found time to grind magic prompts with numerous Sooshes at once.
We love the passion but this overwhelmed us in times of events!
 
We sincerely hope you guys understand the changes, and appreciate the transparency as to why I decided these were for the best.
 
As usual, we do take in community feedback. Does it feel like carats are hard to grind for? Or maybe there just isn't enough prompts to tackle? Do flash prompts need a dramatic return? Let us know in #suggestions-box in the Sushi Dog Park Discord!

✦ Happy May, Sushi Rolls! ✦

Back with another news update!
This is a bit of a slower month before we slam into Summer - which means we have plenty to look forward to.

If you have any questions, please ask us in the community discord server. Enjoy!

Mid-Event Update

You didn't think we'd forget the free gift, did you? Zero and Cookie are so thankful for the sooshes helping solve the mystery, and have packed some extra petals in a free box that is now stocked in the shoppe!

Check out the Holiday Shoppe!

 

Raffle Prizes Reveal

This event has a few Sooshes that need rehoming! Thus, the raffle will have 3 winners in total - each winning a lovely Soosh.


3rd will get: Sunset Buttercream Cake by Tamurachii
 
2nd will get: Grande Matcha Latte by linborghini

 

1st will earn the Grand Prize: Spring Time Cake, a Sushi Cat by aisu !

This flowery soosh has the Sheer Bandana trait that you can earn in this event!

We hope that this raffle reveal brings more excitement to players who would rather earn Sooshes than traits during the event, or simply have reduced time and unable to grind for the seasonal traits this year. (#relatable)

Thank you, everyone!

This event was quite similar to our previous Snowfall event - just filled with way more sub quests and seasonal traits! No worries though... get ready to pick a side and fight for your honor in the Summer Starlight Festival beginning in July. Want to know the teams? Keep reading!

✦ Summer DTE ✦

The annual Summer DTE is happening next month! There will be 6 Sooshes up for grabs, with one being a Sushi Cat!
Remember, as this is a DTE, winners are just chosen at random. You can enter for every Soosh but only win one. This information is just a refresher so you can plan ahead if you want to participate.

There is one more thing - these sooshes are participating in the Team Fight for Summer Starlight Festival! I can't reveal too much yet, but it has to do with what you enjoy having at the table...

Soosh Sales ✦

Since we decided on a theme before the newsletter was posted, I'm just going to go ahead and tease the theme for the May Moderator Batch: We hope you love water!

Every Saturday will continue hosting a sale for GAs until the final Saturday each month, which is held for the Mod Batches! We have a lovely soosh by Miizue coming up for auction tomorrow, so look forward to it!

Returning Activities ✦

The DTE isn't only next month - we are going to bring back Mythical Adventures so you can continue on your quest to mythical status for your Sooshes.
 
The mirror will reopen tomorrow as well! These should happen monthly but please be patient in case the weekends need to change.
 
Alongside this, Star is going to try to host activities to have game nights in the Discord again.
Be on the lookout as he may sporadically host one randomly!
 
Lastly... lore! We have been wanting to focus more on lore and have tidbits written for the community to help develop their own Sooshes relationships with NPCs, their environment, and more. Of course, you are not obligated to follow lore when doing art - keeping everything strictly canon can be restricting! We just want to provide more knowledge regarding Culario and its happenings.

And that's all for this month! We hope you are as excited as we are!

✦ Happy April, Sushi Rolls! ✦

This month is the beginning of a brand new seasonal event packed with new traits and pets!

✦ Soosh of the Month Break ✦

I will be putting this prompt on a break due to low entries every month. For those who entered in March - thank you! I will be getting into contact with each of you to give a separate prize as this is a last second change. I want to take suggestions on how to make this prompt more thrilling and desirable for users, so please let me know in the discord server or down below what you'd like changed!

✦ Spring Blossom Festival ✦

Happy beginning of Spring Blossom Festival, Sooshes!

Figure out by participating in the event questline and solving the mystery in the sub quests!

Gain our new event currency, Petals , by participating in these event limited prompts for the duration of April and May and spend them in the Holiday Shoppe for special seasonal items that can only be found at this time of the year!

Sorry for the delay - with Kayy's life duties swallowing up her time, I've been allowed to take over GA sales and will resume posting them on Saturdays!
Thus, the first sale starts today:

This lovely collab design by Flufflebear and Ponkochi is an auction open for two days - please take a peek and good luck bidding!

Events Ending ✦

Thank you everyone for participating in the Snowfall Festival! I hope everyone enjoyed the prompts and prizes that were available.
The Snowfall Raffle will be rolled this Friday, and Staryon will distribute the prizes to the winners after rolling.

The Holiday Shoppe will remain open until March 7th; the frozen tickets will no longer be purchaseable after the raffle is rolled on the 2nd so don't forget to grab those before then!
 
There is only a few more days to get some pets in the Sweetheart Day prompts! These were short, limited-time prompts to celebrate our affections for our loved ones.
These prompts will end after the 7th, so please check them out before they go!

On a similar note - there is no estimated hiring date for the mod applications. This is a lengthy process that requires numerous steps on our end, so we appreciate patience for anyone who has applied. We look forward to every application!

✦ Season of Spring ✦

Similar to Snowfall Festival, this event will have main quests and subquests to earn some event currency for some new items and prizes!
