~The Vita Sanctuary~

    News
November 25, 2011 - Many new changes have come to the Vita Sanctuary since I came back from my hiatus! First of all, there is a new accessory in the store! The first one yet! It is a feather earring, and comes in all colors. Second of all, the Enfermen breed is retiring. Everyone is sad to see it go, but new breeds are also coming soon! The healing potions have also been taken away, since the Enfermen was the main purpose the healing potions were there. Breeding slots have been opened for a bit, and there's a new event to celebrate 100 Vitas! And there is still more to come!

August 9, 2011 - Heheh. I just opened 4 re-color spots and 2 custom lineart spots in the customs, but I didn't really announce it in a separate post. More like, edited a more recent post. Let's see who get's the notice first. I also updated the Oracle sections, and now Family Trees are available, yay! Since school is coming up, I'm going to open custom spots more frequently and do new batches less. All I want are my happy customers!

July 21, 2011 - A new batch has been posted, consisting of 13 little Vita kits. 10 of them are the new breed, Canvas. 2 of them are Sanars. One of them is the special #50! I have also created a new event to celebrate over 50 Vitas made. Once all of the Vitas in the new batch have been adopted, I will use random.org and it will pick a random number between 2 and 60. Whoever owns the number Vita that rnadomlorg picks, will get a custom lineart.

    About "Vitas"
"Vita" means "Life" in Latin, and the name explains most of it. Vitas are life-like adoptables. Wondering how they act like real cats? Well, first of all, they can get sick, but it's pretty rare. Especially the Enfermen breed, which comes into your house sick. But don't worry, the sickness isn't contagious!

If your Vita becomes sick, then you can buy some
medicine. Medicine can be bought from the store, and their are three types. 'Simple Medicine' which cures Vitas who have just become sick, 'Complicated Medicine' which cures Vitas who have been forgotten by their owners and have been sick for over a week, and 'Special Medicine' which cures Vitas who have been sick longer than a week. If you have a Sanar your Vita is automatically healed. If you don't have a Sanar, you can also heal your Vita by asking the oracle, Sherri.

Vitas come in all sorts of unique shapes, sizes and colors, so if you see one that looks mysterious or interesting, grab it fast! You never know, it might have something special to do with it.

The Vita Sanctuary - Adoption

Postby StarShaper » May 19th, 2011, 5:02:36 pm

    Sanctuary
Here is where we keep all of the Vitas that have not been adopted yet. If there are any in the Sanctuary, be sure to grab it fast!

    Rules
1. You may only adopt up to 2 Vitas at a time. Don't be too selfish.
2. You may not edit your post, or you will be ignored. I was stupid and forgot to add a space for the name and owner, so you many change the name of a Vita at any time and gift the Vita to other people if you would like too.
3. Please don't use this art on other sites.
4. Payment is sent first, then I upload the adults.
5. I will make more rules if I must.

    Vita Information
Common- 200g
Longhaired Enfermen RETIRED
Shorthaired Enfermen RETIRED
'Enferma' means 'sick' in Spanish, add an 'en' at the end, and you get a sick Vita! When you first buy these poor little creatures, you have to buy a Complicated Medicine (unless you have a Sanar) and the Enfermen will be healed for eternity but they will keep the same form/shape/colors (they always will, unless you get a Mystery Medicine).

Uncommon- 500g
1. Longhaired Canvas
Shorthaired Canvas
These odd Vitas start out white with blue eyes, and their paws and tail drip a transparent blue substance. As they grow, their white pelt starts to change colors, darkening or lightening. When they are fully an adult, Canvases have their full color. Their tail also seems to drip paint the color of their pelt. When a Canvas Vita swipes their tail across a blank canvas or piece of paper, they can create beautiful artwork.

Rare- 1k
1. Longhaired Sanar
Shorthaired Sanar
'Sanar' means 'heal' in Spanish. Sanars never get sick, and have the ability to heal sick Vitas. They are rare to find, but worth the wait and the money.

2. Longhaired Lyria
Shorthaired Lyria
There is nothing more beautiful than watching a Lyria soar across the sky. These feline divas are the star of the show, with their colorful wings and flashy pelts. Lyrias love to show off, and love nothing more then attention. They are not often found, but it's worth the wait in gold when you do finally receive these graceful winged felines.

Lyria kits are born with their wings' feathers soft and white, then as they grow the baby feathers fall off and their feathers' true color begin to grow in. A Lyria's wings are always the color of their eyes.


Special - Only obtained through events/potions/items
1. Longhaired Curavite RETIRED
Shorthaired Curavite RETIRED
This breed is created from the Mystery Medicine. Not much is known about this species, except that it never becomes sick. 'Curavita' means 'healed' in Latin, and these Vitas always seem to have cheerful personalities, because they have been healed from their sickness forever. They also make great helpers for the Sanars because Cutavites can not catch the contagious sicknesses of the Enfermen.

2. Piscium
If you're looking for some fun in the water, it would be great to have this Vita around! Their hind legs are replaced by huge tail and their favorite food are Smacking Salmons. This breed isn't easy to find, especially because there is no known hatchling stage of it. To get a Piscium of your own, you need to buy a Smacking Salmon from the store, but they are often out of stock since owners are constantly feeding their Pisciums salmons.

The Vita Sanctuary - Breeding

Postby StarShaper » May 19th, 2011, 5:02:59 pm

    Breeding

BREEDING IS: OPEN

You can breed your Vitas by using a "Love Potion". The maximum amount of kits possible are 4. Love Potions can only be obtained through events, or if you want to breed with one of my Vitas. But please be aware, Vita #1 cannot breed. And don't worry, only one person has to have a Love Potion to breed Vitas.

The amount of kits will be determined by random.org and then I will post the amount of kits on this thread. Aside from events and other things, the kits' design will be determined by me.

The only rule is, that both owners of the breeders MUST agree ON this thread. I like to see proof, sorry. And the owner of the Love Potion is the only one allowed to post the breeding form, so I don't get confused.

The Vita Sanctuary - Store

Postby StarShaper » May 19th, 2011, 5:03:16 pm

    The Store/Pharmacy

Here, you can buy medicine for your sick Vitas, or check to see if anything else is in stock. Not a lot of items will be posted, as of Vita bases cannot hold much except the adoptable, their number and the Vita sign.


Image
only obtained through events
Love Potion- A special potion with a magical heart inside it. When the sparkling liquid encasing the heart is drunk, the heart bursts and the Vitas fall in love. Don't worry, it's not by force, the potion awakens feelings hidden deep inside their heart.

Image
not selling anymore
Simple Medicine- This medicine is simple, and heals Vitas who have just become sick. This medicine smells and tastes like grape, yet if you drink it when you are not sick, it will have no effect on you.

Image
not selling anymore
Complicated Medicine- This medicine works on Vitas who have been forgotten by their owners and been sick for over a week. This medicine smells and tastes like blueberries, yet if you drink it when you are not sick, it will have no effect on you.

Image
not selling anymore
Special Medicine- This medicine is special and rare, it glows with power. It only heals Vitas who have been sick for over a week. It tastes like fruit punch, but when you smell it you can faintly smell watermelons and apples. If you drink it when you are not sick, it will have no effect on you.

Image (normal version)
Image (smile version)
out of stock
Solara's Special Salmon Smackers- This could be a tasty snack for your Vitas, or something that they use to smack people with! These are special salmons that are frozen for your convenience and great for smacking people with! Or you could just wait for the salmon to thaw and nibble on it. Please be aware, this salmons will NOT be update onto your Vita, they will just appear in your storage. But they're cute and might have something special to do with them later! You may have a Salmon Smacker in any color preferred.
But they're cute and might have something special to do with them later!
To get a Piscium, you must buy one of these and a Piscium will swim up to you in any colors of your choosing. But sadly, these Salmons are often out of stock since owners need to feed their darling Pisciums.


Image
only obtained through events
Mystery Medicine- This medicine tastes like sweet lemon candy, and sparkles with power. It can cures Vitas of their sickness forever. Only works on Enfermens.

Image Image
150g
Feather Earring- These accessories are fun, flirty and fashionable! They come in all colors, so they can match your Vita's pelt. Order one with your adoption form, and your Vita will grow up with a feather earring the colors of your choice.

The Vita Sanctuary - Oracle

Postby StarShaper » May 19th, 2011, 5:03:37 pm

    The Oracle

Image

This is the oracle, Sherri. She has been in the Sanctuary for as long as anyone can remember. She is always in a trace-like state, and sometimes babbles something incoherent. Upon her forehead is a headband made of gold, with a light blue gem attached to it. This gem is constantly glowing while Sherri is meditating or in one of her trances.

There are 2 ways she can help you:

1. Healing
2. Family Trees

Please be aware that you can only ask of Sherri once a week per person, unless it is Family Trees. Then Sherri can make two Family Trees per person every week.

    Healing

If you do not have a Sanar, Sherri can heal your sick Vita for the price of 300g. Her glowing orb and gem on her headband have the strongest healing powers known to man-kind. You can only ask Sherri to heal your Vita once a week.


    Family Trees

If you come to Sherri with an offering of 1.5k, she will make a Family Tree with her magical powers. Do not be fooled, this is an ACTUAL tree with the faces of all of the members of the family hanging on the branches like leaves. It will be updated when new members of the family are born. You may only ask Sherri for a Family Tree two times a week.

Past Family Trees

The Vita Sanctuary - Customs

Postby StarShaper » May 19th, 2011, 5:03:55 pm

    Customs

Customs are fun, aren't they? You can get re-colors, or a whole new lineart, unique to your custom! To get a re-color, you'll have to pay a simple 3k. For a custom lineart, a whopping 8k! You see, since my tablet is broken, I have to draw all of the linearts on paper, scan it, then re-trace the whole thing and re-size. IT IS A LOT OF WORK. So I'd really rather get my gold's worth of it. But the result is always worth the wait!

NEW RULE: Only one custom per opening! Which means you can get 1 custom every time I open the slots! No more slot-hoggers!

CUSTOMS ARE: CLOSED


Re-Color Slots:
1. Feathersun - Sugar : Finished
2. Littlemagi108 - Princess : Finished
3. Desertstar - Julliet : Finished
4. dogdog414 - Spyder : Finished

Custom Lineart Slots
1. jolley852 - Kuro : Finished
2. Firebird - Minx : Working On
3. Amkorra - Ombrage : Finished

The Vita Sanctuary - FAQ

Postby StarShaper » May 19th, 2011, 5:05:50 pm

    Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Why are these adoptables called 'vitas'?
A: Well, I wanted something that meant 'life' or 'life-like' in a different language. And all of the other languages where either hard to pronounce, or just plain stupid. But when I tried Latin, which is one of my favorite languages, it turned out to be 'vita' which is catchy and quite nice to say.

Q: What program do you use?
A: I use Adobe Photoshop 8.0. Well, I draw the actual linearts on paper, scan them, then re-trace them on Adobe with the mouse. My tablet is broken, so I've become quite handy with the mouse lately. And without Adobe Photoshop, I'd still be stuck with Paint! And we all know how sucky that program is...

Q: What timezone do you live in?
A: EST, same as the site. I'm normally up around 6:00 AM and on the computer from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM, but the time varies, depending on the day, and what afer-school activites I have.

Q: How do you get your ideas?
A: Just free-stylin'. I love drawing random cats on paper, and if they come out good, I normally scan them and re-draw them on the computer. I also love creating ideas out of different Latin or Spanish words, and listening to music helps too. I really enjoy pop, but some upbeat country is acceptable too.

Q: Why did you make this shop?
A: Because almost every day I get ideas for adoptable shops! I know, it's pretty lame, but I thought this one might take off better than the others. Besides, who wouldn't want an adoptable to act like a real life animal? But don't worry, they can't die.

Q: Are you going to make any other animals than cats?
A: Well, the only animal I'm actually good at drawing are cats, and I have quite a couple ideas that involve cats in them. But you might want to look around for some surprise animals I might post. I already made an adoptable for a winged snake...

Q: Is it possible for me to gift or rename my Vitas?
A:
Why yes it is. Since I was stupid and kind of rushed to make these adoptables, I forgot a name, owner and gender spot. So it is possible to gift and rename Vitas. Although, it is not possible to change the gender. That's just wrong.

Q: What are the fonts that you use?
A:
For the word 'Vita' I use "Tw Cen MT Condensed Extra Bold" and for the numbers next to the adoptables I use "Myriad Web Pro". This is actually more of a reminder to myself, since I know most of you probably don't care about what font I use.
