Good To Know

Sites: Ranebopets is split into two sites. for hosting the game & masterlist, and for hosting lore, species info, and art resources in a more aesthetic format. The discord is the most active for updates, social, and trading.

Event cycle: Ranebopets has seasonal events for spring, summer, fall, and winter! There are also other mini events scattered throughout the year. (Seasonal Events)

Hatchlings: Hatchlings are baby ranebopets. They can be grown up into an adult form by using a growth potion. MYO hatchlings are tradelocked & can only be used in hatchling & event prompts. Not all species currently have hatchlings. (Hatchling Guide)

Age & Content: Players must be over 13 to play Ranebo and over 16 to be in the Discord. We do not allow heavy gore or sexual content in submissions or our social spaces.
