Well it seems that they were so soft that they didn't want to give out their avatar. I have talked the super soft line of plushies into being nice to the users and finally they have agreed that they will allow users to get it. However they didn't tell me how to get it sadly.

Happy Hunting!



~ Posted by superturtle on 2009-03-16 15:09:17


The Special 25% extra deal has ended as of 12PM Ichu Time. Please allow up to 12 hours for your additional credits to be awarded.

Watch yourself on the streets of Ichua, it seems sightings of many many delivery trucks are swarming the Mushroom Shops!

The Toy Pen has received some fresh new toys that will make even the smallest ichuian squeal.





Super Soft Collectors should be on the look out for the newest plushie in this ichuian crazed collection.



Sniff... Sniff... Do you smell that? Looks like the Food Shop is dishing out some new samples of some delicious foods!





Put on your reading glasses, because the trucks didnt miss the Library Store! Loads of new books have just hit the shelves.





Last, but not least! Some rather odd ichies have been raddling in the cages of one delivery truck... These are what we found inside!







~ Posted by Ole on 2009-03-17 18:03:47



Happy St Patricks Day! Lucky Lyra has come to Ichua and will be staying here til Sunday. At the start of every hour, her pots will fill with magical gold! If you manage to snag one, you will receive either an item, some iP or nothing!

It looks like the Toy Pen has received a full stock of the all new Zirafa plushies!







Also the Toy Pen would like to announce the arrival of a new toy!



Amateur battlers may want to check out this new little item at the Battle Supplies shop.



Wanna cool down from all the yard work outside? The Frosty Treats shop has a new delight that is sure to do the trick.



Can't seem to find a Zirafa... Maybe this new field guide will help you in your search. It can be found at the Library Store.



And last, but not least! It seems the Luwhut Tree has started to produce TWO new berries!

Ever wanted to be a top Author, where hundreds view your work? Ever wanted to make some money from doing it ? Well now you can! You can become an Ichumon Author and earn iP for doing so!



Writers Block has just been released. It is a brand new section to Ichumon, hopefully inspiring users to write more. You can create your own book, add chapters to it and try to get it published. If your book gets published, it will be up on sale in the Writers Block store, where users can purchase the book for iP. All iP goes towards you too! Go check out this new section, and post all bugs/suggestions on the forums.





~ Posted by April on 2009-03-28 04:21:20




The authors at IchuBerry would like to thank you for submitting your critiques! As it is a fairly new system, please take into consideration the following things:



Remember that the point of giving critiques is to tell the author what is and is not working. Try to give solid, constructive criticism and praise. Saying, "This is good, can't wait for more." is nice, but not very helpful. Be specific about what you like and why. On the flip side, if you think something needs work, be specific. Try to give examples, and again, remember that the point is for the author to come away from your critique with information that will help them improve their story and/or writing. Also, submit at least a few sentences on the authorís work. A five word critique isnít very helpful.



Critiques are screened beforehand and abusive or purely negative submissions (such as personal attacks) will be deleted and reported to a mod. This doesn't mean you can't criticize, just that you must be constructive.



~The writers asked me to post this for you.~



Have fun!

Uh...oh.



~ Posted by April on 2009-03-30 09:36:38




1st place: Inumo, The Birth of the Ban Hammer

Inumo's ballad not only follows the rules to the letter, but creates a flowing story out of the normally mundane topic of forum moderation. This work tells the tale of brave mods forging a mighty Ban Hammer to combat a horde of forum trolls and their Sword of Flames. The story evolves with each verse and has a great sense of fun without losing the solemn history that a ballad often tells.



2nd place: Ruin, The Final Flight of Vester

An entertaining, full, exciting tale. This is a true epic poem about a great battle and its consequences for all Ichua. Ruin uses a clever rhyme scheme that repeats words and concepts without restating them and so avoids redundancy.



3rd place: DemonFoxToy, Rise of the Hammer

This is a well-written ballad with a lovely sing-song feel and an ending that made at least one judge want to ďsquee.Ē DemonFoxToy takes a cute yet irreverent look at just why Ole created the Ban Hammer in the first place.



Congratulations to the winners!



This week's format is short story. The topic is: Write the history or legend about one of the areas on the world map of Ichua.



Good luck to all!
