Crafting and Forging
You can craft your armor on your own using our Crafting Recipes page without needing to create any artwork.
If you'd like to do an extra step to get a custom item with your original armor design, you can forge your armor. Forging works by making an artwork with your armor design and submitting it to the queue. Your crafted item will be swapped for your forged item. This will create a unique item which you can use yourself or sell or trade to another player.

How to Forge
Forging is an exta step you can do after crafting your armor to get a version of your armor with custom artwork. It is completely optional.
If you decide to forge, once you forge your armor, please understand that it becomes an in-game item and thus your art becomes a commodity with in-game value that can be traded and sold to other players. If you ever sell or trade it to another player, you wont be able to control what happens to that item and the art cannot be removed from the game. We will only honor requests to remove your art from the item if you are still the owner of the item.
When you forge, your artwork must meet the following requirements
- must match the color aster used to craft the armor. See the Aster Color Guide for more info on colors.
- If you craft Vermilion Armor, the colors used in the armor must be oranges, reds, pinks, or browns.
- If you craft Silver Armor, the colors used must be greys, whites, or blacks.
- If you craft Rainbow Armor, the color can be any color. It does not have to be rainbow.
- The aster color chosen must cover 30% of the characters body.
- Must be in color (grayscale shading ok for silver aster)
- No background or shading required
- No adult content allowed. Your piece must be SFW.
- You do not need to depict a character but it must still be clear what parts of the body the armor covers.
- Each image only counts for one armor set.
- The name of your submission will be used for the name of your armor item!
Forging is not supported for written entries.
How to Forge
Forging is worth 7 AP if your character is depicted in the artwork.
- Gather your materials, either from drops, or from purchasing from the shop. Make sure you craft with the color aster that matches the design you're making.
- Craft your armor in the Crafting page by inputting your materials and clicking on [Craft Item] and leave it in your player inventory. Do NOT equip it.
- Create artwork of your armor following the requirements above.
- Click [SUBMIT ENTRY] at the bottom of this page to submit your artwork to the queue. Name your submission the name you want for your armor.
- In the queue form, please specify which armor item you crafted. If you drew your character, tag them and input 7 points.
- Can I craft more than one set of armor and switch between them?
- Yes. Once your armor has completed crafting, you'll be able to equip and de-equip armor yourself from your character sheet.
- Can I upgrade my armor?
- Yes. You can start with medium armor for example, then later create a new crafting request for heavy armor. You can reuse the same artwork but must pay the difference in materials and the aster color and element must match.
- Can I craft elemental aster armor?
- No. Previous versions of armor crafting allowed for elemental armor but we took this out of the game for various technical reasons.
- Is the armor locked to my character?
- No. Once it's crafted you can equip it to other characters or even sell or trade it with other players.
- Can I use the same submission for crafting armor and weapons?
- You may use the same submission for crafting multiple armor and weapons as long as all crafted pieces are depicted. You can't reuse the same art to craft armor over and over.
