Gryphocorpus [closed species]

3 Sep 2018, 7:55 pm (Edited 3 Sep 2018, 9:29 pm)
You wander through the ruins of what looks to be a castle. It's been torn asunder by time and weather, but you still find life among the wreckage in the form of flora growing between gashes in stone and fauna making homes beneath pillars. Then you hear something large shuffle and the loud clicking of a beak just ahead.

Before you sits a large... Gryphon? Its wings are tattered and its tail seems to go on forever. It holds a strange and tarnished crown in one massive paw, the other holds a stone sword. As it turns to face you, you notice something very wrong.

Before you stands a Gryphocorpus! Gryphocorpi are ancient magical beings that dying rulers would summon to protect their places of rest once they died. The idea was that the Gryphocorpus would remain until the end of time, but once there is nothing left to protect, the seals that keep them bound to that area dissipate. While they are timeless creatures, they can now roam, and this is how they search for other beings to protect, which is probably how they'll find you!

But I'm sure you're curious as to what a Gryphocorpus is hm?


Meet Lute! He was the first documented Gryphocorpus but more and more keep popping up. Maybe you'll be able to snag one! Ooooor, you could summon your own... for a fee~

Down below you'll find all the information you'll need!

Gryphocorpi were summoned by rulers to protect their tombs from raiders. Clean summoning one could take anywhere from a week to a full month, but many dying rulers just... didn't have that kind of time. So to hasten the process, many live Gryphons were sacrificed as vessels for the Gryphocorpi to use. This, however, also caused... mutations and other phenotype differences. Sometimes, aesthetically pleasing coats came out if this, but the Gryphocorpus was more likely to hold a grudge against the royal family that summoned it.

The Gryphocorpus is only supposed to be alive long enough to protect the ruler's tomb, but due to the timeless nature of an undead entity, they remain animate and sapient far after they've been freed. The only way to free a Gryphocorpus is to reduce the tomb and the ruler that owns it to ashes or rubble. This will also earn you the Gryphocorpus' trust!

Gryphocorpus have been found all around the world, but most notably in Europe. They say every crumbling castle has one hiding in its walls.


I'd always prefer USD to FD or FC, but I am more than happy to work with you!

Prices for Wanderers are non-negotiable, but I can take mixed payment.

1 USD = 100k FC = 100 FD = 100 gems (FR)

Custom Pricing Will Vary, but it'll be in the $3-$10 area right now

$3 will get you a Gryphocorpus that has no traits/1 common trait.

$4 will get you one common and one uncommon trait

$5 will get you two uncommon traits

You can purchase custom, never before seen traits as well, but those will be priced on a case-by-case basis. There will also be an item that will grant your Gryphocorpus the "Dragolith" gene, which you will see later. Any and all "rare" genes will be obtainable either via item application OR with the Artist's Folly option. You'll be able to see all this further down!

So you'd like to summon your own Gryphocorpus, hm?

Well, first you must fill out this form, then we can begin~



I'd like to summon a Gryphocorpus!

Mane color: (red area)
Primary color: (blue area)
Secondary color: (green area)
Accent color: (purple area)
Markings: (will use accent colors, additional accent colors can be bought)
Eye Dot Shape: 
Payment plan: (USD, FD, FC, FR Gems, mixed)

But Glitch, you ask me, what markings are available?

I am so glad you asked...

Please click the trait you'd like to see up close and please note you can ask for custom markings BUT I have the right to decline and I also have the right to jack up the price if need be.

Spots (C), Damascus beak (C), Ethereal Puffin (C), Velocibeak (C), Cheshire (UC), Damascus boby [wip] (UC), Eyes beak (UC), Fluids beak (UC)

Super special markings that are currently unobtainable via Custom Summoning

Dragolith (R), Tarnished(R), Bones (S)

And if you see traits you like, but want ME to choose a palette, just say "Surprise me!" in any of your color boxes and I'll pick a color I think would work.

I'll also have premade palette Gryphocorpi here, so check back for them!

You feelin lucky punk? Well? Are ya?

Because I also have a summoning method called Artis's Folly.

You take a risk here because I call the shots. These come with risk but potential high reward.

For a flat rate of $10, you get an AF Summon that could push out a dud OR you could get a never-before-seen gene, color combination, mutation, or more!

There are only 5 AF slots claimable per month. Grab em while you can.

1. justsomerandomweirdo // pending
2. jakdacrowe // pending

And now onto the section people will gripe at me for... rules.

Once you purchase your Gryphocorpus, you may not trade or sell it unless you get my permission. You cannot sell it for more than it's worth (unless it has other art attached, in which case you can forfeit it and jack up the price or keep it but lose all rights to your Gryphocorpus).

Gryphocorpi can be used as painties, but if you sell your Gryphocorpus, you must give up the paintie. You do not have to give up the villager attached. Oh, and OBVIOUSLY, it needs a shifty base.

Once you own a Gryphocorpus, you can come up with any kind of backstory as long as it follows the main lore in some way.

You can have as many Gryphocorpi as you like.

Please do not repost images of your Gryphocorpus without credit!

Please do not send full payment until I have completed your design. Pay half upfront and half once you receive the confirmation and proof that I have finished it.
