...............................................COMING CHANGES
Spamming is absolutely forbidden! What is considered spamming?
  • We will very shortly be going through a site and forum system upgrade. (Fall of 2018)
  • We will be getting a friend system, guild system, galleries, games, and many more features when this goes live, as well as a mobile-friendly design for mobile users.
  • We are beginning work on a new project: Age of Avalyss, which is the evolution of our site from an avatar community forum to a browser-based RPG game. You can read more about it here: Age of Avalyss
  • Avaricia will not be closing until the Avalyss is ready to be joined by all members of Avaricia.
  • You will regain all currencies you've ever earned when it's time to do this, and your post count and account age will translate into EXP points for your character.
  • Information on joining Alpha or Beta testing can be found in the AoA Forum


...............................................CREDITS, JADES & TRINKETS
Credits → Credits can be earned by posting in forums, replying to posts and referring your friends to the site.
  • Credits can be used to buy items from stores as well as from other users.
  • Credits may be exchanged for Jades.

Jades → Jades are also earned by posting (but the payout is less).
  • Jades can be used to purchase items from stores as well as from others users.
  • Jades cannot be exchanged for Credits or Trinkets.
  • Beyond posting, you can earn Jades by converting your credits. You can click on the "Exchange" link under your posts to do so.
  • Two credits are worth one Jade.


Trinkets → Trinkets are a way of saying "Thank-you for donating your money to further the development of the site."
  • Trinkets can be purchased through the donation system. (Octobr 2018: Please be aware that our current donation system is having errors. Once we go to our new site systems, this should be corrected!)
  • Trinkets, cannot be traded among other users. You can however trade the items that have been exchanged for your trinkets with other users.


Avalyss Opening and Currencies When Avalyss is ready to go into public testing, any member of Avaricia past or present will be able to reclaim all currencies ever earned on Avaricia. This includes trinkets. Trinket claiming will be limited to one year after Avalyss opens, with exception to long-time legacy donators who contributed over $150USD lifetime. Free site currency can be regained at any time after Avalyss is ready to be open to the public.

These currency restorations will apply to any currencies won in contests, giveaways, prizes, user to user donations, trades and the like.

Avalyss will be using a more simplified currency system: one free site currency and one premium currency. Credits and Jades will be combined at the exchange rate at some point prior to Avalyss opening to ease this process.


...............................................AVATARS
→ Your avatar's gender can be changed by clicking on "Account > Edit Profile" and clicking on the male or female gender option.
→ Items for your avatar can be purchased in the shops.


...............................................SHOPPING
In the "shopping" forum there are several different stores, here I'll explain them to you ;D;;

Special Shops → In the Special Shops section there will be two shops listed. The shops within use trinkets & special event currency.
  • Special Events → Here you will find all the items available for purchase when an event is running. The items will be bought with event currency.
  • Trinkets & Treasures → Here you will find all the items available for purchase with trinkets. Some items are permanent, while others are only available for a limited amount of time.

New Eden Shopping District → In the New Eden Shopping District section there will be six shops listed. The shops within use credits .
  • Trendsetters → Here you will find the hippest, trendiest and most fashionable clothing.
  • Eloquent Apparel → Here you will find New Eden's finest clothing.
  • Head Hunters Limited → Here you will find all the hair available to purchase for your avatar.
  • Locked Topic → Here you will find all your intimate apparel needs.
  • Additions → Here you will find all those little extras that help makes your outfit unique, such as glasses, wraps and more.
  • Shoe Store → Here you will find the perfect pair of shoes to go with any outfit!

Bajerbas Marketplace → In the Bajerbas Marketplace section there will be five shops listed. The shops within use jades .
  • Faction Gear → Here you will find high-tech clothing, and accessories manufactured by the Rubicon Faction.
  • Search and Rescue → Here you will find low-cost clothing and items found in abandoned cities.
  • Mythical Legends → Here you can meet Avaricia's very own Xan. Because of his beloved interest in mythology and legends he's open a store to sell his collection of items found within his books.
  • Casualties → Here you will find comfortable clothing at affordable prices.
  • Market Square → Here, you can sell your used goods and browse the shelves for a variety of items sold by other users. Think of this like a second-hand shop that can be freely purchased from by anyone.
  • Golden Tome → In this shop, you can trade many items found through Gacahpon for other items. Dyes, Pigments, and Ooh Shinies can be combined to create new things. You can also combine other items too!.

...............................................TRADING
The Trading System is used to trade items and currencies between users.
  • Start by clicking on "Trades"
  • Afterwards you will type in the name of the user you wish to trade with.
  • Proceed by adding your side of the trade.
  • Then the user will either accept or add in their side of the trade. ALWAYS MAKE SURE TO DOUBLE CHECK THE TRADE BEFORE FINALIZING!
  • If the trade is to both of your likings, click on "accept"

...............................................SIGNATURE
If you click on "Account > Edit Profile" you will be able to edit your "signature". Signatures appear below every post.

...............................................LIMITED EDITION ITEMS & EVENTS
Previously, we held events regularly for holidays and had donation items. However, with the upcoming changes, the amount of time and resources we are putting into Avaricia is going to be waning as we prepare to open Avalyss. Do look forward to a few events in the upcoming months with some small items however! As for donation items, we will be keeping our former donation items online for purchase for anyone who wishes to contribute to our future ventures. These funds will help with Avalyss development. Once Avalyss is ready for Alpha testing, we will reinstate new donation items.

More FAQs

What is Gachapon?

What are Pigments, Plain Cloths, and Ooh Shinies? How do I use them?
