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 in South Dreamsong, the central setting of the story.
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.

In Valenth, Factions are powerful organizations that significantly impact the world in some capacity.
There are lots of factions in the world, but players are allowed to join four of the most influential; The Somnambulist Project, The Firestarters, The Silent Rose Organization, and The Court.
There are many reasons for choosing a particular faction, like exclusive forums and special rewards such as trinkets, backgrounds and brand new adoptable species-- but CHOOSE WISELY!
Most factions require you to win their favor before you can join-- and once you've joined one, defecting isn't easy!
Each faction grants Reputation in different ways; experiment and trade notes with friends in the Factions Lobby forum to learn more!
