How to Make a Purchase



In order to purchase an item, please use the code provided below each category of items. Fill out the form, and post it to this thread using the account you want the item to be applied to, when applicable! Please only post complete purchase forms that are ready to be processed. If you need more gems, or have not figured out the name of the character the item(s) will be applied to, wait until you have everything to post.

If you are not certain what you wish to purchase please see a more detailed explanation of items here, or ask a staff member.

Concerning Refunds

Refunds are allowed, and are to be posted here, so long as the item was never used. If your purchases were applied to a new character you may be refunded for those purchases so long as that character has less than ten posts. That character will then be deleted. Refunds will not be given for the "Extra Pups" item. All refunded gems will be added to our GEMSTORE CREDIT thread. If you have gems under Gemstone Credits, you may use the gems to buy any items that aren't account-specific (i.e. pack creations and pack challenges).

Note: In the case of seeking refunds on adopted characters with over ten posts, please contact a staff member for approval.

Character slots can now be refunded for 50% of their original purchase price.

Inheriting Items and Companions

We do allow companions and physical items (objects only, not dye or paint) to be passed from one character to another, most often in the case of one character's death. The price of the item or companion will be discounted to half the Gemstone Store price. If this is done, a link to the original character's purchase must be provided, so that it can be marked as no longer valid, and the original character may no longer be posted with that companion or item.

Discounts from Parents

If either parent of an on-site litter has a rare trait that can be purchased, the item is 25% discounted for the pup’s player. If both parents have this trait then the item is 50% discounted. These traits include extra height, albinism, melanism, abnormal color, odd colored markings, canine passes, large/small species passes, etc. See more details in Mating & Litter Rules.
