Species Guide: Glubglubs

Glubglubs are a closed species belonging to Midveil!
You cannot make your own without a MYO slot.

Glubglubs are a fish-like species originating on Earth. They eventually migrate to Midveil to live a life safe from the prying eyes of mankind! These creatures are known for their mimicry of sea creatures, which they use to play tricks on unsuspecting fisherman! In Midveil, these fun-loving creatures are known for leading expeditions on the open seas and exploring the depths!

Glubglubs are quite large on Earth, and can grow up to 7.5 feet tall! However, in Midveil, they are just a bit larger than ghost thimblets!

Can I upgrade the mimic rarity of my MYO slot?

Unfortunately no, Glubglubs were created with the intention of being rarity locked. Make sure you purchase the correct slot for your glub rarity! You can always DM the mod in charge of Glub approval if you aren't sure.

Am I restricted to the colors and markings of its mimic species?

No! The colors do not have to match any specific species that the glub is mimicking! So you could have a rainbow shark if that's what you wanted!

Can I give my glubglub mixed parts? For example, an octopus-like crown and a fish tail?

You can mix and match from the tier rarity (common, uncommon, rare) you have and any tier below that!

How long can my glubglub's crown be?

While you have quite a bit of freedom with your glub's crown, so long as the growths are the proper rarity in correspondence to your slot, we ask that you keep the length reasonable. Long crowns are possible, but are limited to rare and exclusive adopts!

Can there be more than one glubglub based on (species?)

Absolutely! However, these glubglubs must be unique and easily distinguishable from each other. Whether you use a different color scheme, markings, or a different areas for fins. Designs that are replicas of others will not be approved. The mods reserve to right to deny designs they feel are too similar to a pre-existing glubglubs.

Can my glubglub wear accessories? Can I remove my glubglubs accessories?

Glubglubs can wear accessories to entire outfits! In addition, accessories are free to remove whenever!

Can my glubglub have a different body type (skinny, fat, tall, short)?

Yes, as long as the overall anatomy is similar to that of a glubglub, it can be as fat as you want or more on the slender side! The height cannot vary drastically, but there can be short glubglubs and tall glubglubs just like humans!

How do I redesign my glubglub?

We have a few redesign items that may be used on glubglubs. To find out which items you can use, please refer to the "Applicable Species" section in their description! If you'd like to make a large scale redesign, you also have the option of purchasing the Redecorating Kit.

Can I revert a glubglub to its previous redesign?

After your redesign has been approved and submitted to the masterlist, we will catalogue it's previous design. The masterlist will only ever catalogue the original design and its most recent redesign. If you obtain a Midveiler in a trade and prefer its previous iteration, you can choose to revert to its original design for free.

However, this does not apply if the design you would like to revert to is not listed in the design catalogue. This could be because the user opted out, or the previous design included specialized exclusive mutations that were cured. If this is the case, you will need to re-roll said mutations to restore the design to its original form. Please keep this in mind when redesigning a specialized Midveiler!
