So nice to meet you

Welcome to Roo, an adoptables and graphics site originating from the imagination of a quirky Fish and her pretty muse, Roo. Established on January 22nd, 2013, our goal is to create sinfully adorable scribbles to delight your sweet tooth and prettify your page. It all started from a thought doodled onto paper, which quickly grew to a sketch book filled with ice cream cones in marshmallow shades. Whether you're here to adopt a creamie, treat yourself to a special, take out an extra for the road or simply to catch a whiff of that sugary scent that sparkles through the air, we hope you enjoy your stay!

Updates

30 September 2013 - Hiatus Extended

  • Hey all, I'm really sorry, but I need to put Roo on a hiatus again. I hate to do this, but my laptop is currently broken and I'm really busy at work so I don't have the time to devote to Neopets anyway. I will definitely be back, I just don't know when. :c I will update with more news whenever I can, but for now, it's just apologies. :c

20 August 2013 - Downward Spiral

  • Whew! I've finally completed all pending requests. My laptop kept crashing while I was doodling which got me squealing in disgust.
  • Mega Scoop customs will only be open in September. The reason for this is that my laptop is on a steady downward spiral, and having it crash on me every 10 - 15 minutes makes doodling not much fun. I'll be getting a new one in about a month, which is when I will open all requests again. Mini Scoop customs will remain open for now.
  • In other news, Roo has been recommended & featured at Luminescent! Thank you, Rita!

14 August 2013 - Candy Hearts (& a sneak preview)

  • Update: Mega Scoop customs are Closed! Just 1 slot for now though, I know it's measly, but I'm going to be rather caught up in FFXIV's Beta this weekend and don't want to bite off more than I can chew. I've filled the slot! I'll open requests again next week probably. c:
  • For a sweet lil update, I've created some Candy Heart alphabet trinkets to accompany the Scrabble Tiles. I'll be working on some different colours, but for now, just send me a mail if you'd like any of them in a specific colour. (For a quick preview, just look at my little new linky buttons below the update box!)
  • I've started to work on some new creamie species prototypes! It's a secret for now, but hopefully I'll be able to push out a new species soon! (It's tougher than it actually sounds because my darn graphics card keeps crashing and everytime it does, photobucket decides to tune out and go unresponsive. Which means that if I didn't have the good sense to save my work, I end up losing all progress. /dies. Honestly.)
  • Also, here's a sneak preview of something that I would like to offer at either Roo or a newly created site in the future. /points to the little pear-shaped pierrot at the side. Possibly I might start off by offering customs for this as a prize for a special event or something.
  • Got a such an adorable new Link Back button from Floret! Thank you, Sarah! *squee*
  • + 2 affiliates - Acrylic & Cherie! Affiliates requests are now closed, thank you all so much for your interest. c:

13 August 2013 - Is something missing?

  • + 3 Mini Scoop requests! I'm going to work on those now. c: All 3 are completed! I'm just waiting on approval by their owners. Feel free to send in more orders in the meantime, I'll probably be accepting a couple more of these.
  • If you've noticed that it's that huge hiatus sign, you're right! I just received the greatest review from Cameron @ Those Thoughts that really gave me the much needed push to come back to Roo. Just *look* at that hover-over effect on the navigation bar.(♥ you, Cam! You genius!)
  • So what can you look forward to? For one thing, Mini Scoop requests are OPEN. Requests for Mega Scoops customs will be open next week (or sooner!), I promise.
  • Roocraft (Beta) will be out soon as well. I actually have the creamies all ready, so I just need to work on some of the extra details.
  • I'll also be working on new creamie species so you can look forward to that in the near future!
  • To all of you who still visit us, THANK YOU for sticking with Roo during my times of uninspiration. I can't tell you how much that means to me.
  • + 1 lovely affiliate - the amazing Bisou!

World of Roocraft

A Roocraft-ian World

As a homage to my obsession with Dungeons & Dragons table top games, this Roo Special was created according to a fantasy / role playing game theme. Each fantasy creamie is based on a brave adventurer and has his / her own set of skills and abilities. As time goes by, your creamie adventurer can advance in his / her journey by levelling up and gaining new experiences.

Will you embark on this journey with us?

Terms & Conditions

  • Do provide proper credit for all images.

  • Do not redistribute these images or claim them to be your own creations.
  • There is no limit to the number of creamies that you can adopt.


The Essentials of Roocraft

Welcome, brave adventurer, to the mystical land of Roo. There are battles to be fought and legacies to be written, but perhaps you'd like to check out these pieces of vital information before you begin your journey. Should you still feel lost, feel free to send me a mail and I will address your concerns as soon as possible.

What is War of Roocraft? How do I play this game? How do creamies level up?

What can I find in the Town? What can I do in Roocraft? How do battles take place?

What classes are available? What races are available? Can I customize my creamie?

For finer details and odd quibbles, do check out this compiled list of Frequently Asked Questions. If you have a question, there will always be an answer!


What is War of Roocraft?

Back

The main storyline of the game takes place in the quiet little town of Roo. Although tiny, the town is home to some of the bravest creamies in the land and has been the birth place of many heroes. Things have been peaceful till recently, as there have been whispers of an old evil lurking in the shadows. Monsters grow bolder and have breached the perimeters of Roo's forests and fields, leaving fear and chaos in their path. In response to this, there has been a call out for heroes. Rigorous training will be provided and rewards will be vast, but do you have the heart and spirit for what it takes?

World of Roocraft is an extremely simple game with a sprinkling of traditional Dungeons & Dragons elements. Basically, I have created a selection of creamies that are inspired by fantasy role playing games. Each creamie is based on an adventurer of a certain class (eg, Wizard, Monk etc) and race (eg, Elf, Human etc). Every creamie starts off at level 1 and has a basic set of skills. As time goes by, these creamies grow stronger and level up, thereby gaining more powerful abilities.

Adventurers are able to take part in quests, mini events and games to gain experience and loot for their creamies. With every level or piece of loot required, there is an opportunity to advance the skills of the creamies or enhance their looks with awesome new stuff such as mounts, companions and weapons!


How do I play this game?

Back

The first step to your Roocraft journey is to adopt an adventurer. There are various preset options available and in the future, there will also be the opportunity to design your own custom adventurer creamie. There is no limit to the number of creamies you can adopt, although the greater the number of creamies, the harder it will be to level every one of them up. You will be able to assign a name, background story and character to your own creamies to add that special touch of personalization! To take part in Roocraft, you just need to fill in the adoption form and send it in!

After you've adopted your creamies, it's time to check out the town. Currently, there are 5 buildings in the town square: The Specialty Store, the Apothecary, the Castle, the Hall of Records and the Arena. Each of these buildings offers different items, information and/or activities to help out in your Roo adventure.

From time to time, adventures will be available which your creamies can embark on beyond the safe haven of the town. You can participate in these adventures to gain experience, special treasures and perhaps a special title or two.


How do I level up my creamies?

Back

In order to advance to a new level, creamie adventurers need to gain a certain amount of experience. This allows them acquire new skills and abilities, which will make them more battle ready!

Experience can be gained from the consumption of Roo potions. Roo potions are magical little concoctions that can be acquired weekly from the Apothecary. Each creamie can be fed a maximum of 5 potions each week; anymore, and it will cause indigestion! To feed a potion to a creamie, simply go to your player entry in the Hall of Records and click on "Feed potion". Make sure you actually have that potion in your inventory though!

Experience can also be gained through the completion of challenges, skirmishes and adventures. This can be obtained as a reward for completing a certain objective or in the form of potions as a part of discovered treasure.


What can I find in the Town?

Back

Apothecary: A little potion store managed by a faerie and her magic cauldron. Potions can be acquired here every week, each with a special effect that can benefit your creamie in different ways.

Specialty Store: A store which offers special items such as mounts, companion pets, decorative costumes and other things to pamper your adventurers with.

Castle: Your one-stop destination for news about Roo and the daily happenings. There will also be various challenges housed here from time to time, and all of them offer special rewards!

Arena: The training grounds where your creamies can spar with friendly opponents in skirmishes to prepare for real battles in adventures.

Hall of Records: This building houses a list of all adventurers and their progress in Roocraft. Each player will have his/her own player entry here which consists of all the important personal information about his/her progress in Roocraft.


What can I do in Roocraft?

Back

There is an array of activities that you and your creamies can take part in:

Challenges can be acquired from the Castle and are often a set of simple quizzes and puzzles set by the well-meaning royal staff.

Skirmishes are offered at the Arena where creamies can face-off with the current challenger in a single player battle. Each creamie can only take part in 1 battle per day to allow challengers to rest and recover (not everyone is a young creamie in his/her prime!).

Adventures are larger scale events which are available from time to time. Each adventure can offer a certain degree of exploration, puzzles and even large scale battles where all adventurers can cooperative in a group effort to bring down a particularly powerful foe.


How do Battles take place?

Back

Battles will play a significant part in Roocraft and allow your creamies to really hone their skills and abilities. Each creamie will have a special set of skills which are specific to their class. As they level up, creamies will learn new abilities and improve old ones. Battles are dynamic experiences which will take part over a series of neomails. To take part in a battle, simply click on the "Attack" button, choose an attack or spell, fill in the attack form and send it in. The monster will soon retaliate, so brace yourself! (Note: for those allergic to violence, it is completely possible to play Roocraft without taking part in a battle because there are other activities and ways to gain experience.)

Town Map

A morning breeze caresses your face as you walk along the cobblestone path that leads to the town. A row of colourful buildings greet you as you enter the main square. Which building will you enter?

Update: There are new potions at the Apothecary! Perhaps you'd like to check them out?


The Specialty Store

Back

A wizened, elderly gnome jumps out of his chair with surprising ease as you enter the store. He squeaks excitedly, A customer on a fine, fine day! How may we please you with our wares? You breathe in the sweet scent of marshmallows roasting over a fire as you reply:


Jellybean Mounts

The gnome claps excitedly and leads you to a corner of the shop. The floor is lined with cushy pillows and upon it lie some of the cutest mounts you've seen.

You hear the merry bubbling of liquid as you enter the apothecary. The faerie looks up from her cauldron and smiles brightly at you. Can I help you, my darling? she tinkles in a sweet voice. You can't help but return her smile shyly as you reply:


The Apothecary

The little faerie flutters over to the cauldron and starts stirring the liquid. Remember, you may receive up to 5 potions per week, she calls out. The magical cauldron issues potions out at random, the number and type of potions that you receive really depends on how lucky you are.

Collect your weekly potions!
