Welcome to Valenth!
Welcome to Valenth, a mad science, steampunk, and fantasy-themed Adoptables site with an ongoing story, optional Roleplay elements and many more features to come!
Adoptables are small, usually transparent graphics made to display in forum signatures or on your personal websites for decoration. There are many sites you can get them from; Valenth is only one of them.
All of our adoptables but two species a month (see Cash Shop Adoptables) are FREE to adopt, and you don't need to register an account to pick up a few (though we do reccomend you do so)!
If you choose to register, you can take part in the entire website, earn Krüs-- our currency -- , buy Items and accessories to use on your stored adoptables, and even adopt rare species you can't get any other way!

Your First Adoption
If you're simply passing through-- maybe you saw one of our adoptables on another site and wanted to get one for yourself-- adopting without an Account is simple and easy!
Visit our Adoptions page, pick the species you like, give it a name and gender and click the button.
You'll be taken to a new page with HTML and BBCodes for your adoptable; simply copy the code you want and paste it into your signature or website and you're done!
If you might like to keep all of your adoptables in one place for later, edit them in the future, or even trade them with other Valenth members, you should register an account before you adopt!
Adoptables created prior to registration can't be changed or assigned to an account later on, and they can't be renamed, traded, given items or backrounds, or used in future site features.
If you've registerred an account, you can access any adoptables you've adopted with that account on the Your Adoptions page.
Registration is easy; if you're 13 or older, all you need is a valid email and a username!

Clicking on any standard-linked Valenth adoptable will take you to its profile page.
In the top left-hand corner, each profile page offers you three different food choices to give the adoptable; clicking one will feed it, which you can do for each individual adoptable once a day.
Feeding adoptables earns you Krüs which can be spent on items, accessories and special adoptables, and adjusts your Reputation with one or more Factions based upon what food you chose.

The World of Valenth
Valenth is a fantasy-steampunk world, neo-victorian with a splash of faerytale and magic in civilized areas.
Humans exist, but are only the dominant sentient species in a handful of areas-- the most prominent being Gier City in Central Dreamsong, the main setting of the site's plot.
Valenth is a world undergoing metamorphosis; as common folk eke out a living the only ways they know how, the world is slowly turned upside down, and reality itself is at stake...
All of Valenth's adoptables ( with the exception of Promotional adoptables), including new releases, Limited and Special edition availability, and rotations are based on what's going on in the world at any given time.

Roleplay In Valenth
Currently, most of Valenth's story takes place in News posts made in the forums, updating every few days on average to continue the main storyline, introduce side-stories, or announce holidays and special events.
Sometimes, official posts will invite players to Roleplay and take an active part in the environment!
There are special rules for these posts to preserve the integrity of the gameworld; this is the difference between Canon and Freeform roleplay.
All official newsposts are always Canon.
In addition, Canon and Freeform RP forums are always available for players to create their own scenes and events to play and interact in.
If you're not interested in the fine details, you can dive straight into the Freeform RP forums and join in!
Players interested in Canon RP, and roleplaying within official event threads should see the Character Creation guide for information on how to create compatible characters.
