Rules and Guidelines

Welcome to #Felarya ! :dance:

This group is centered on the Felarya universe : felarya.com/wiki/index.php?tit…
A land of adventures, wonders, great dangers, legendary treasures, and voracious giant ladies XP

The group is meant to be a giant directory to help keeping track of any work ( writting, drawing, journals, articles ) made by the community.
Anyone is very much welcome to join :D

Before that however, here are some rules and guidelines as to how the group work. Please read before joining !

:star::star::star: Members
Membership to this group is totally free. However it's best to join if you share an interest in Felarya, and if you can do with the fetishes it has been founded on, namely giantess and vore. I'm well aware it's not everyone's cup of tea, but a minimum tolerance to it is in order to enjoy the group. If you *hate* those, you will likely only find troubles there, and should definitely NOT join.
As members you are allowed to submit deviations into the galleries.

The gallery is divided into several sections :

- Featured : This section is dedicated to art based on Felarya. It can be a fanart of a particular character, a scenery etc.. Please only submit work that are at a decent level, with a minimum time invested on it... I'd rather not see stickfigures done in MS paint there ^^;

- Felarya writing : This section is created for stories based on Felarya.

For bios of a particular character, an idea about a new creature, a location etc... please post them in the Bios and ideas section.

- Animations, sprites and icons : Pretty much self-explanatory. It includes little flash games as well ^^

-WIP : Post in that gallery your doodles and works in progress to receive advices or criticism.

- Comics and strips : Sequential art goes there. Depending on the drawing, a two panels picture can qualify as a comic or not. you decide.

- Vore : Here goes giantess vore pictures. Only explicit vore should go here, otherwise, pick the "featured" gallery. Non-Felaryan giantess vore material is accepted as well.

In case your deviation fits in two sections in the same time, just pick one of your choice. It may be moved later though.

:star::star::star: Rules and guidelines for the group.

- First you must remain polite and civil. Trolling won't be accepted. If, for example, you are here either for having a good lulz at the expense of others or bash vore, you are definitely not welcome and will be banned.

- Publishing a blog entry in order to flame something or someone won't be accepted. Also in general, publish one only if you have something important and Felarya-related to say. Don't use them for personnal things or as you would use Twitter..

- gatekeeping won't be accepted. There are some people who think they somehow hold the truth of what Felarya is ( or should be ) and attack others for not submitting to those views and basically ruin their experience. I don't want to see any such things there.

I think this covers it all. I want the group to be a pleasant place for everyone to share their ideas, creations and interest in Felarya. Have fun ! :D

I was browsing on YouTube when I came across this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=xb1eMQ… I thought I would be crazy not to share those tips to writers here.

That said, I think some of his tips are a little too centered around comic book writing and also could use a few more examples for similar, yet different situations, and since I have nothing better to do this Tuesday, I thought I'd add a few of my personal advice to his, and perhaps comment on some of them.


1. Show, don't Tell.

Mark used a good example in his video, especially when it comes to Explaino for comic writers, but I think it could use another tip when it comes to prose. Dialogue is another good way to Show in prose. In my most recent chapter, Homecoming, I struggled to convey Terrie's amazement at all the sights in Negav. At first, I tried to convey it through narration, but it didn't work like I wanted, so I instead decided to use dialogue, and it ended up creating a much stronger feeling of awe.


2. Don't always go with your first idea.

I've actually broken this rule a lot, but that's probably because I'm impatient.  That said, that advice is hardly limited to concepts that will be a major focus of a story.  Sometimes, it may be best to take a step back and take a look back on your original idea for a plot, or how something happens in a story, even a line of dialogue, and then change it if you have this nagging feeling that you could make it more interesting.  I find it usually happens when I'm in the middle of writing the chapter itself.


3. Consider the reader's experience at all times.

Mark's advice works well for dialogue-heavy scenes, but he didn't touch on fast-paced scenes or another way this could apply to comics. Basically, in a long action scene, like a fight scene or a chase scene, it may be best to pause the action for a moment to give the readers a chance to absorb all that has happened. For example, in a fight scene, having the two fighters exchange banter for a little while, or cut to nearby characters' reactions or commentary. In a chase scene, having a period of calm to build suspense before whoever or whatever is pursuing them strikes again. If you have your action scene go for too long and you don't give the readers a moment to slow down to absorb all that has happened, they'll lose focus and will get bored.

Another tip I would offer comic writers in such scenarios is to not forget that dialogue is your friend. What can be as uninteresting as an action scene that goes on for too long without a brief intermission would be a long string of panels with no dialogue, because then you're essentially looking at nothing but still pictures, and what was meant to be thrilling suddenly becomes dull.


4. Give each character a specific way of speaking.

Giving your characters a specific way of speaking, like giving an aristocrat a rich vocabulary, even something as small as a verbal tic or accent, is a great way to build characterization.  That said, I think you should use it in moderation, especially if you have a large cast of character, because if you give every single character a completely unique way of speak is going to sound forced unnatural.


5. Make something happen in an interesting way.

I never considered this advice before, but it makes a lot of sense. Another example I can give you to make something mundane happen in an interesting way would be if two or more characters started a conversation as they're going from Point A to Point B. It may not sound like much, but it helps make an otherwise dull moment engaging and it's great for developing characters, which is always a plus.


6. Try to figure out your ending in advance.

This is important if you want to create a story that's plot-heavy.  If you're writing something like a slice of life, something that has little plots, then I think you can afford to be a little loose on how your story or chapter ends, but you still probably should have at least a vague idea of what you're building up to.


7. Think of what the reader will expect, and subvert it.

Mark's example works well for characters, as I think giving characters a quirk that at first seems at odds with what you initially know of them is a very good way to make them feel three-dimensional. When it comes plots, it's only natural that you'd want to have a twist here and there. However, don't rely on it too much, because if you resort to a twist ending too often, people will come to expect it. Playing it straight every once in a while will keep the readers' guessing.


8. Beware the Passive Protagonist.

How much you follow this really depends on the mood and tone of the work in my opinion. In lighthearted comedies, it's funny to see a normal guy get dragged along a series of ridiculous events and how he deals with it. That said, I think we can all agree that, by the end of it, we want to see the protagonist grow out of his passivity and start having an impact on the story.


9. Give the readers information just before they need it.

This advice seems to be the justification as to why there are so many mentor characters who speak entirely in Cryptic Metaphor, or why nobody ever give a straight answer, and to its credit, finding out about something in the story long in advance makes it less surprising. I think it requires quite a bit of finesse to pull off convincingly without the readers noticing that you're purposefully holding back information, which is why characters speaking in Cryptic Metaphor or saying "it's hard to explain" is so frustrating. It's also why the Unspoken Plan Guarantee trope exists, because it's more interesting to find out as it's happening than being told in advance.

However, I have my doubts with this advice when it comes to characters that are meant to be the strategists or schemer of the group. For starters, to show that they're the schemer, you have to show them formulate plans, which means revealing details about it in advance. If we don't see or hear him formulate plans, then it becomes an informed attribute, which is bad. At the same time, if plans that are detailed for the readers to see always fail, but those that aren't mention always succeed, then it gets predictable and boring. I don't really have additional advice to give on this one, so I would say just do what you think works best for the story.


10. If it's not working, be willing to toss it out.

It's true that when some ideas just don't work, even if you love the idea, it's often for the best to just discard it for the sake of an engaging read. However, I would add that you shouldn't necessarily forget about the discarded idea completely. Sometimes, what didn't work as originally intended may work in a different scenario if adapted properly.


Anyway, what did you think of Mark Crilley's video and my extra tips? I highly recommend you check out his YouTube channel. He does some amazing tutorials and he also has more great advice for you comic artists.
I'm back online and checking in. Over the coming days I will gradually be catching up, and starting to look through the items submitted to the group gallery. Only gradually, though, so try not to swamp it. Similarly, I'll get round to reading and answering private messages fairly soon.

I also need to catch up with work in real life, and my family is facing a rather stressful situation with a badly injured pet needing a lot of care, so my full attention is not going to be on Felarya just yet.

As for stories, I haven't been writing; I've got quite a few ideas, including several with detailed outlines, but I'll have to see when I feel in the right frame of mind to write them.

Edit: Thank you all for your kind words. My sister's dog is very gradually getting better, though we don't know yet whether he will fully regain the use of his legs. For now, he seems to have adapted to partial paralysis, and to be getting on with his life…
Hello all! :D This is just a friendly Public Service Announcement letting you all know that I'm currently taking commissions!

I have a very big project going on with rpg maker ace based on Felarya. however in this adventure there will be less nude woman and more blood and gore...

I have not done much yet but in simple it is based on the silver scales tribe and a large amount of fellow people that dislike predators. It is planed to go into a full blown war like conflict across the land of Felarya and yes I know about the guardians and how they prevent war like thing but as you play through the game you will see that this conflict is more complicated than you first tort... So far it is looking very cool and I cannot wait to show you all my progress;)

I'v always been a bit puzzled by how the afterlife works in this. When a spirit is in either heaven or hell and are "killed" I.e. in most cases eaten, do they just vanish and are gone forever or do they re-spawn in some way and if that's the case, how would it work for purgatory, spirits just roaming around?

Hay guys nipa101 here and I'm here today to tell you all about the upcoming release of the new Felarya order known as the silver scales tribe. the silver scales tribe are a extremely large group of all kinds of nagas (as long as they average in heights of 6ft to 10ft and no larger) on the most northern point of Shillapo island.

when first reading about the silver scales tribe you will fell that they are very villains and that they are up to no good but that is what I want you to think as when you read about how this order all begin and how events transpired to make things the way they are now even you will question just who is really evil and who is truly doing the right things.

overall this story line has lots of action, blood, fear, adventure and secrets about Felarya that you did not know involving some of Felarya's more dangerous predators (animals mostly but large woman are seen a lot... can not say anymore)
