Helpful Tips

Each marking has an active and dominant possibility. Dominant means the marking will always pass when bred and can even sometimes change what the marking looks like. Active simply means it must be present. We will show you an example using the marking 'Highlight'.
Active Example: Hl
Dominant Example: HL

Each marking has specific guidelines so be sure to Ctrl-F and search for the marking you are creating.
Markings ranges are a guideline and not a strict ruleset, so long as your general placement is there and not abusive you will find a smooth sail experience during approvals.
When we say a marking must be natural to your base coat color, we deem the following natural markings safe across the board: Silver, Cream, Brown, Black, White
Unnatural colors are fine provided your base coat color too is an unnatural shade, and the colors used are considered natural and relevant to your base coat color.

A soft edge simply means it has been smoothed out entirely into the design, Highlight is a good example of this termonology. A hard edge can have various brush edges, it just has to have a definitive marking edge.
Selecting good marking colors? Be mindful that when selecting your base coat color this will effect the allowance of colors displayed on your Felvargs markings. While disregarding your base coat color we consider the following colors equally as natural as the colors immediately surrounding your chosen base: brown, silver, black, and cream. They are natural throughout, but players should be mindful not to consume their Felvarg in shades that stray too far from their base itself. Should a player choose to use the 4 natural colors, they should be mindful that no more than 25% of their design is covered by markings not immediately relevant to their base. This means if your Felvarg is Cream (Cr) 75%+ or more of your Felvarg should be in shades of cream equally. See a live example on how you might choose safe marking colors while designing your Felvarg here.
When a Legendary Modifier is present and chosen to effect the base coat color, and 1 other marking, designers may then choose to pick the remaining marking colors from the true base coat color swatch optionally to use on any remaining markings. This means all markings using the true base coat color should originate from the swatch provided.

Bicolored

  • A legendary "marking" that creates a base coat comprised of two distinct colors from the coat's swatch rather than just one. At least 50% of the main coat color must be visible, with the secondary color occupying large spaces without holes.
  • Active: Bc | Dominant: BC

    Bicolored Rules

    Bi-colored in its minimum form must be present with noticable coverage between the chosen two colors from the swatch.
    Both Bicolored colors should come from the same swatch.
    Patches should be 10% or larger and can have various patches.
    The second color with free placement must appear in large(ish) areas and cannot replicate any other markings or have holes in it. It is solid throughout.
    Bicolored is a symmetrical marking.


    Good Examples

    Mosaic

  • A legendary marking, Mosaic blankets a Felvarg in a black like pinto.
  • Active: Mo | Dominant: MO

    Mosaic Rules

    In its minimum form Mosaic must cover at least 60% of your Felvarg (Maximum 90%).
    Mosaic must be a shade of black and while it does not need to come from the provided swatch, it should remain fluidly similar.
    Mosaic creates an effect similar to that of Pinto, except it turns the coat a shade of black.
    Mosaic is an asymmetrical marking.
    Mosaic can have breaks but cannot have holes within the marking itself. It should remain solid throughout.
    Dominant Mosaic can now have a 10% - 90% coverage allowance.
    Mosaic present will allow for the Felvarg to have blue chow flesh and automatically allows for an eye mutation (Optional), should you choose to add blue chow it will then be hereditary to all direct offspring.




    Good Examples

    Reversal

  • A legendary marking that causes the placement of markings to switch into areas which are normally considered the illegal range.
  • Active: Rv | Dominant: RV

    Reversal Rules

    When your geno has reversal it MUST flip the markings to what is usually the illegal ranges, if reversal ranges are present on their respective guides.
    Reversal does not alter the marking or base colors.
    Reversal does not effect free white or free black!
    Reversal does not effect anything but the markings.


    Check each individual marking to see if/how Reversal interacts with it.

    Blessed

  • A legendary marking that works as a marking / base coat modifier that alters at least two markings (base included) to a color from the provided swatches. You may choose colors from either swatch provided.
  • Active: Bl | Dominant: BL

    Blessed Rules

    Blessed is a marking/base coat modifier. It alters two or more markings (base included) to the chosen swatch set.
    In its minimum form Blessed must cover 2 or more markings (base included).
    Free White and Black are not effected by Blessed.
    While you may come off swatch to any natural shade to your base coat color, you should remain within the correct hue of your chosen base coat color.
    If Blessed is present with Sunkissed, Moonkissed, and/or Tainted, then all of them may be used. However, if your Felvarg has less than 2 markings (base included), then you must use only one.
    Markings that should be lighter/darker than the base coat should hold true to their nature. This means that highlight, for example, should still be lighter than the base coat. Mosaic, domino, pinto, skew, appaloosa, and patchwork should also still hold true to their nature.


    Good Examples

    Moonkissed

  • A legendary marking that works as a marking / base coat modifier that alters at least two markings (base included) to a color from the provided swatches. You may choose colors from either swatch provided.

    Markings that should be lighter/darker than the base coat should hold true to their nature. This means that highlight, for example, should still be lighter than the base coat. Mosaic, domino, pinto, skew, appaloosa, and patchwork should also still hold true to their nature.

    Good Examples

    Putrefy

  • An extremely rare unhereditary blessing.
  • Putrefy Rules

    Putrefy works similar to the legendary modifiers except it is not hereditary.
    The designer may select a single swatch to pull colors from.
    The design should remain on swatch for the base coat color and all marking colors.
    While you may come off swatch to any natural shade to your base coat color, you should remain within the correct hue of your chosen base coat color. This means after selecting your base coat color, you should no longer use the swatch for guidance or color choices.
    If Putrefy is present with Tainted, Mookissed, Sunkissed, and/or Blessed, then all of them may be used. However, if your Felvarg has less than 2 markings (base included), then you may not make use of the legendary modifiers. If used the modifiers must be able to effect at least two markings.
    Markings that should be lighter/darker than the base coat should hold true to their nature. This means that highlight, for example, should still be lighter than the base coat. Mosaic, domino, pinto, skew, appaloosa, and patchwork should also still hold true to their nature. If you're going to have these markings effected by Putrefy they will need to like the rules state above, be on base or natural to your unchanged base coat color hue choice.
