Hey guys, Baus here.

Say hello to our new programmer, Miki (#1589)! Miki is taking over Taylor's role here on Dynasty, and he's been hard at work the past few weeks working on quite a few backend things. Among his numerous projects are working on the new live chat for us, opening up a lot of the game's pages to guests (in order to help us with search engine rankings and get more players in to Dynasty), and fixing numerous bugs. Welcome Miki! :)

In order to help support Dynasty financially, we've enabled Google Ads to be shown on most pages of the site. They are just on the bottom of the pages, so hopefully they won't be very intrusive.

If you've got an upgraded account though, you won't see the ads. :) Huge thank you for those who have upgraded and/or purchased credits for other things, as it helps keep Dynasty running and new features in development.

Cheers,
Baus

Woohoo! Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Love is in the air~

As you've noticed, we have a pretty new colour scheme for the site - and all your wonderful dogs have nice things to tell you as well! Go take a look at your kennel. ;)

Also, for the duration of this day, spread your love to other Dynasty players! Upgrade someone - and tell them something nice - and you'll get a free upgrade for yourself! The 10 banked credits you usually get as a thank you for upgrading others has been bumped to 50 credits.

To redeem these for an upgrade, go to the cash shop page and click the button to upgrade yourself - the upgrade will use the banked 50 credits instead of any you may have on hand.

Cheers, and Happy Valentine's Day!

Lots of updates today!

Congratulations to Mars_World (#1417) for winning the draw for the Dynasty Tumblr Contest!
Enjoy those credits Mars_World! Thank you to everyone for participating, it was great seeing everyone's furry family members. :)

The next breed to be added to Dynasty will be...... *drum roll*...... Border Collies!
That's right, the energetic herding monster received 22 votes, with the Irish Wolfhound coming in at a close second with 19 votes. This will take a bit of time to be added, will not happen today.

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day! We've got some surprises planned for you, so make sure you check in tomorrow, and spread the love!

Cheers,
Baus

That's right ladies and gentlemen, the Tumblr contest ends tonight!

The draw for 50 credits is happening tomorrow!

Quick reminder of the rules:
  1. Following the Dynasty blog gives you one entry into the draw.

  2. Submitting a picture of your pet (one picture per pet please) gives you one entry for each picture.

  3. Reblogging any post from Dynasty's blog gives you another entry, one for each reblogged post.


Andddd here's the blog again: http://dynastydog.tumblr.com/

For pet pictures, you can submit even if you don't have a tumblr account - just post the link to your picture here or message it to me and I'll post it up. :)

IMPORTANT: Please let me know who you are on Tumblr (or if submitting on tumblr, who you are on Dynasty), so that I know who to award the prize to! :)

So I was originally planning to add breeds in the order that they are submitted - however, given that you guys are submitting breeds way faster than I can keep up, perhaps that's not the best strategy.

Which breed do you want to be added next to Dynasty?


In a few days I'll tally up all the comments and the most suggested breed will be added next!

You probably knew that Dynasty is on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/dynastygame), but we are also now on Tumblr!

http://dynastydog.tumblr.com

If you use Tumblr, follow our official account over there. We'll be posting cute puppies, help questions, featuring players and kennels and breeding projects, and also just cool dog-related stuff we can find. :) You can also submit posts and asks!

The social media accounts Dynasty has are now in the footer on the site :D

Let's start with a little draw, shall we?

I'd love to start with featuring the various pets of Dynasty on the blog - comment with a link to a picture of your pet and I'll put it on the blog. Or, if you're on Tumblr yourself, just submit it to the blog with your Dynasty account name and ID#!

  • Every pet image that is featured (one picture per pet please!) will gain the owner an entry into the draw.

  • If you're on Tumblr, every Dynasty post you reblog with the tag #dynastydog will get you another entry.

  • Following the Dynasty blog will get you yet another entry! Just make sure you let me know somehow who you are on here.


What is the draw for?
50 credits! That's right, winner gets enough credits for a monthly upgrade. :)

The draw will be held on Friday, February 13th (spooky!).
Can't wait to see all your pets! :)

There was an issue where the challenge didn't want to accept any dogs you tried to submit today. We've fixed this, and also extended the CC until tomorrow (Monday) 11:59pm so that anyone who was trying to get in this morning but couldn't still has a chance to enter tomorrow.

My apologies!

Get your final dogs in! :) the CC ends at 11:59pm server time tonight! The challenge will be judged automatically, so the winners will be notified at some point shortly after.

Good luck to everyone!

Yes indeed they are, thanks to the lovely alcemistnv (#3), who submitted the breed many moons ago.

If anything appears wrong in the breed, any issues, please let me know immediately - otherwise, enjoy your new tailed corgis! :)

Woohooo! This weekend we hit the first milestone number - we have 1000 players on Dynasty! :D Yay! Thank you, and welcome to everyone!

You guys have already caught lots of bugs, started some interesting breed projects, and are in general being super helpful and nice to each other, which makes me really happy! You guys are such a wonderful little community <3 :)

To celebrate, I've just launched our first Community Challenge! This works kind of like the individual challenges that you're all familiar with, but the major difference is that you have to get together as a community and breed the challenge dog together.

Every person who participates in the breeding of the winning dog will receive the prizes, so you don't need to be the person to submit the dog to win. The dog that wins will be the dog that has the most different people listed as "Breeders" in its pedigree.

What does this mean? This means that there's no point in submitting imported dogs - they have 0 breeders. A dog you bred yourself will have 1 breeder.

Say you use a stud that someone else has bred though? That's already 2 breeders in the pedigree of the resulting puppies. The more breeders (in a 10-generation pedigree), the higher the chance of winning!

You can submit as many dogs as you like. :)
The rest of the rules are outlined on the CC page:
http://www.dynastydog.com/goals?tab=community

Good luck and have fun!! :D
Baus

Edit: I encourage you to go on the forums and get together with others to plan your breedings. :)
