A new discovery!

Hello Vesnali celebrators - are you having a nice time? I’ve had a lovely year. Well, a lovely few years actually! But today I wanted to talk to you about one of my recent expeditions. You know how I love to keep an eye on the local nature! I’ve been noticing the Nature Walk over in Riverside has been a little quiet for a while, probably because the novelty has worn off a bit. People make a visit or two and then find other ways to fill their time. Which is great for some of the creatures there! They don’t like it being too busy or full of people.

Knocked Over Trash Can


The thing is, I think something has moved in there. A new something. At first, I thought it was a minion, but after spending some time documenting it I started to believe it had more properties of a Subeta pet! It’s taken me a while, but one of the little creatures ended up bonding with me, and when I offered it a chance to come home with me it scooted right up my arm to nuzzle at my cheek! A very strange sensation, I’ll tell you that much, and it put my dear Esther right off snuggling that night (she’s not the hugest fan of the uh…’slippery slimy’ type things)!



Anyway, I now have this creature, which I’ve been referring to as the 'scootle' because of how fast it moves, and I’m not sure if I’m some kind of anomaly! I think the best thing to do is invite those of you who might be interested in adopting one of the things over to the Nature Walk - see if you can spot one for yourself! It might take a few days to bond with them, as it did with me, but if they do I think I may have discovered a brand new pet! In the meantime, I’m going to work to see how my scootle responds to potions…I’ll have my results on…Friday, I believe!

@Houndoom
if you're on the third day, you should probably be looking in the third page! I had trouble finding it because it was really small ^^ try moving your mouse around for the highlight

So can anyone tell me why I saw the scuttle for the first two days and every day since even going through the nature hike I haven't seen one again? I really would like one too :c

@heavenlycats this would be the fourth day (once on the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th). If you've only done it three times you might get it tomorrow (you should be at the last page of Nature Walk) :)

I am a lifelong gastropod lover and while this is a more traditionally cute and pretty design than my kind of thing, it just makes me really happy that people at large these past few years have shown so much more affection for slugs and snails. This is a nice hybrid of snail and nudibranch, and I really look forward to seeing it in different colors and styles.

Atomic

Ahh I got one! Couldn't resist after following the little critter around all week. I was undecided until it actually bonded with me...but how could I just walk away after that? I enjoyed this method of pet acquisition and I can't wait to see the other colors.

Yuzu

Congratulations! You've adopted Nareru the scootle! Take good care of it!

Its name means "To become tame" or "to get used to" in Japanese, which I thought was perfect because of how Scootles are acquired!! I'm so happy to have it! Can't wait to see the recolors!

I could have seen him yesterday if I had paid more attention and notice more pages.

@Beast It changes hiding spots every day. I had to literally just look for the highlighted spot when hovering today because it was so small.

So I clicked on the scootle three days in a row and then today he wasn't there but a different little bug thing was? How does this work anyways?

Nevermind, I did find him finally, he's trying to hide. Anxious to see tomorrow what all the colors for the snail will look like.

@ScarletKilometers: Yeah, those look like cerata to me.
0

crashingnightingales

@Beast Nope, that's just part of the process. Even if you click on it twice in one day and it runs away, it will still continue to be curious about you. The process is similar to the minions that you have to bond with. Despite a double click yesterday, the last message I got when clicked on it showed progress.
0

Beast

Well >.> I seemed to have clicked on him twice the first day and haven’t seen him again since. Wonder if if there’s some cool down period before he’ll show up again. Don’t blame it tho... :joy:

@Ying It looks to me like the tendrils some species of sea slugs have. Functionally, I know some of the real ones will eat jellyfish and absorb their stinging cells, so maybe this does something like that?

I'm too busy hoarding up blobs to get one right now, but oh! those're some very lovely colors on that snail/sea slug guy~ :d There's not scale for how large these guys might get yet, but I hope they're HUGE (and that owning one comes with the added benefit of making your skin super soft. heh.).
(totally some forced perspective in this one but...)
Look at it. So soft. So friendly~ ♥️

Laurey

I don't think it matters if you click it twice or only once, it disappears from the map either way until tomorrow when you have to go back. I assume it's similar to the bonding thing at Dara's Darlings, after a certain number of days bonding with it, you will be given the option to adopt one.

so if we've already used all our pet slots, will the active pet turn into one? or will it stay minion-sized? or will it always just scoot away from us?
and czar and Amber, that should totally be the field version! gorgeous!!!

Outside of the bunny ears it is very cute -- almost like a pet zapper species.
Also the map version is adorable and tiny-cute!

Now if only we could get rift as a recognized official color and then a jellyfish pet...

"At first, I thought it was a minion, but after spending some time documenting it I started to believe it had more properties of a Subeta pet!"

So....how does Subetan classification work? Isn't a pet any tame animal a person domesticates and takes care of? They're saying it like "pet" is a specie.

That being said, YAAAY SNAAAIIILLL!!!
