I'll preface this by saying that a lot of my enjoyment of Sams comes from the world setting, because I really adore it. When I look at Sams from a cyberpetter's perspective, though...

I'd really love to know what some of your Sam-related goals are! It's really neat to see what everybody's focusing on, or even just vaguely meandering towards. I know that a lot of us get different things out of cyberpets in general and Sams in particular.

For example! I've taken a Pokemon-esque approach to the species. Gotta catch 'em all! Throughout the years, I've slowly amassed a goodly number, even as new ones have come out and en-biggened the pool. This isn't to say that I don't go for them as their individual selves, because goodness I do, but it's always in the back of my mind to dive head-first into anything that might offer me an opportunity of a species I don't have.

Jenn's Species Collection

I'd also really like to have one of each of the four main Elementals someday. I have Air (Zephyr) and Earth (Grove & Peat). Need Fire and Water (which may be one step closer this breeding round). I also really really badly like burning fire want a Rainbow Elemental someday because I am a color whore, a rainbow lover, and just an overall Spectrum fan for life. <3

Ummmmm.

In a general sense, I really love seeing other people with babies of my babies! One reason I enjoy having Open Songs is that it encourages others to apply with my Sams and lets me get my fill of eye-candy baby goodness where I might not have gotten the opportunity if I was just breeding them all on my own.

What are you guys after? What makes your level bar go 'ding'? xD

Honestly, there are a few custom ideas that I have (Don't get me started on the elemental customs I want, there's quite a few. XD), but pretty much I just see what I can get. I work for it, see what comes my way, and embrace my Sams that each seem to have their own personality. I'd love one of each species one day, but I'll just have to see!

It helps that I seem to have quite the round of dumb luck sometimes. XD But honestly, I just love Samanayrs for themselves, and just want to expand my collection to whatever I can get!

But your list makes me want moreeee. XD

Three Samanayrs (One Mimic)
One Lamanayr
One Northern
Soon to be One Elemental.

I also have aspirations of getting one of every species of Sam, though I am nowhere near that goal at the moment. I've started to try to gather rarity modiems rather than strictly breeding in the hopes of eventually getting a healer, or at least an elemental... the rest of the species will probably take some time, especially with how much I tend to fancy Sa'grisayrs, even though my number of them is small (like, one) XD

Thusfar I have these species:
Samanayr
Lamanayr
Hybrid
Mystic
Desert
Kodyla
Sa'grisayr

... and, of course, far more Samanayrs than anything else.

I hope to eventually get babies out of all of my Sams, and I do hope to try to have participants in some of the longest-lined Sams (I think Agony of the Perfect Flame is my longest-lined right now).

I also hope to have a unicorn (or unicorn mimic) some day. I am a bit obsessed with unicorns IRL ;P

Honestly I don't really have too many elaborate planned out goals. I'd love to see how many generations I can breed from my line that started with Jasper and Amazon (LINK) but I've run into the snag of Spur doesn't want a Song. Babies, eh... maybe, Song? No.

Some day I would love to have a Song of the Rainbow baby, especially one from Shadow of the Secret Rainbow (my personal favorite of Glint's ladies).


I think I must be one of the few people who doesn't want to collect elementals. While I think they can be gorgeous to look at, I've always had a hard time getting around how "alien" and unapproachable they seem to me.

I do have a few custom ideas that I would love to see come to life. I'd also like to grab a Guard job for my Tangle of the Feral Jungle, it just fits her personality so well.

Sounds like Spur needs to be trying for a Storyteller job with that particular mindset. :)

Lineage breeding, yes! That had been my goal a while back with my Mystics descended from Restored Oasis. I'd say that I've probably satisfied that goal for myself. Lv's Mystic of a Hidden Land is currently the furthest down that line, the first Mystic from one of them not owned by me I believe. xD And I couldn't be happier with how she turned out. The fact that the ponytail of their forefather has persisted down the line brings me such joy.

I'm also in the, 'would love to have at least one of every species' group. I'd particularly love to get a Kodyla one day; all that silky fluff is just so gorgeous! Though my love of deserts and aquatics sidetracks me on that. Doubt I'll acomplish that goal anyways since Mystery's are so elusive. My one Misery was raised outside of Sam society and I don't think he has the aversion to Mystics...but they would still avoid him, and he doesn't really...like the mares that way as it were.

I do have another dragon character or two that I'd love to bring into the Sam world. Next in line (if and when Minayrs are available and I manage a custom slot) is a little fairy wyvern who would make a delightful Min.

Breeding wise Searing and my little Healer will have a baby one day. And then I'm tempted to continue confusing Searing and Hiss by using more modiems to make them have an Earth Elemental baby one day. At least that should be easier for them to deal with than the aquatic was. XD I'd also love to get one of the Song of the Rainbow babies one day, particularly one from Bloom. I love my little desert mare, my first Sam, and I'd love to have one of her babies too.

Both Spectrum and Wink are looking for Storyteller jobs as well, though Spectrum is likely to win the battle to get one first and make Wink wait her turn. Mystic of the Blazing Oasis tentatively thinks she might like a Wandering Mystic job as well.

I know I'm spacing on something here...but that's a pretty good list of goals to work towards!

Side note- but I wanted to ask- Origami, not that I don't think that Healer and Searing would have epic little babies, but is there a particular reason why? XD Hiss and Searing seem to be one of your favorite couples that are owned by you, and a pair song seems like an unlikely choice for an outside breeding. Is it more adorable desert babies that drives you? XD

I've not written much of their story out, but Hiss and Searing do have a story running in my head. Hiss has...serious mental trama from her childhood that's left some nasty scars on her personality. The sketch of the story so far pretty much goes that in her wanderings through the desert, Healer will cross through their territory and encounter them. Though she's more of a healer of bodies than minds (with her specialty actually being in helping the uneasy dead, ghosts and spirits, find their peace and move on to the next world) she has learned something of helping the uneasy living as well. Nothing enough to deal with a truely Damaged Sam, but enough to do a bit of therapy anyways. While she's in their territory Healer feels driven to do what she can to help try and untangle the mess Hiss's father and siblings left her mind in and ease some of those endless, irrational terrors that haunt her. In the process she comes to admire Searing's nature, and after doing as much for Hiss as she can asks if the couple would permit her to carry one of his foals. After much discussion Searing agrees as a parting thank you. Hiss is actually more willing to let Healer have a foal by Searing than Searing is to stray from his beloved.

..... That's probably one of the best stories of a coupling that I've heard on here. Aw. Just so sweet. Goodness. I feel all warm and fuzzy. <3

I wish Healer, Searing, and Hiss the best of luck!

Also, an Earth elemental would be very neat out of Hiss and Searing, a scaly-desert colored Earth would be just too awesome. :3

Bet you're glad you let me use Phosphor for the splice now, aren't you ;)

Uuuuuunicooooooorns! This is definitely one of my goals too; it's partly why Veil is one of my specialist Sams because he's my closest to a unicorn :3 Maybe we should form a unicorn task-force or something :P

Other than that, I basically would like a variety of Sams. Kind of working towards at least one of each species? I only have Sams, a Mystic, and Misery right now, so gonna have to work on it. Also I want babies from each of mine, and then I'll want babies from those babies, and babies from those babies, so really that goal is never going to be complete :P

At this point, my goal is a silly one. I just really want a Sa'krien of every species that can be Sa'krien, because my soul is a withered black hateful soul, I guess. <<;

Don't think I haven't considered that for Spur ;) But then I'm not quite sure what theme she would take for her storytelling... and she's so leafy and windblown I don't know that Sushi would have much room for baubles lol.

Oooo I hope Wink manages to get a storyteller job Ori! I love so much... her accent makes me all warm and fuzzy inside ^_^


And yes! There absolutely must be more unicorn sams! Unicorns translate in to such lovely elegant sams... not that most unicorns aren't elegant of course (even the bog unicorn has its charm) but sam unicorns have just that extra touch of elegance.

Everyone's plans and plottings just sound like so much fun!

I'm really hoping for unicorn horns on this pair of twins<3 Raitalle, again, thank you so much for giving Dive a try! She may be totally crazy, but Veil fascinates her (his sparkly rainbow gems are a plus ;3)

Amazon... that bog unicorn.... d'aww.... I just want to hug it and would gladly offer my lap to him. Poor precious thing. <3

I will admit... there is some component of, 'wouldn't they make nifty babies!' involved in wanting Healer and Searing to have a baby... But I did at least sit down and think about how to make it work with the pair Song and highly devoted stallion. :D

*nods* When that breeding rolls around to try for...I was planning to try and request the Earth Elemental baby be based on earth/stone/sand/deserty ground rather than plants. I do believe though that after that baby Hiss might just rebel and refuse to touch another modiem again, if not decide she's had enough foals period.

I have no idea what her accent is...but it seems to be popular in all the adoptables whose worlds she has wandered into so far. Yes, that character pretty much has a phobia of marriage, which in the Sam world becomes refusal to join a Song. But she loves little ones and wants them and so is looking into Storytelling. ...once Spectrum manages it at least... Too many Sams wanting jobs...

And lurking on the edge of my other goals is a vague desire to combine Sa'grisayrs, Aquatics, and Deserts with...anything really. I want to get both an Aquatic and a Desert Sa'grisayr one day (not combined though...I don't think anyways).

*eyes bog unicorn* Oooh... iridescent?

*joins the one-of-every-species crowd* XP Not that I have any hope that I could possibly do it- it's just fun to imagine anyway.

For my more reasonable goals...the biggest ones I already met were to get a Healer (my favorite species!) and to get Unfurling to be a Storyteller. ^^ And I'm still working on seeing the first Healer foal, and just how many 'Greats' I can add to 'GrandDam' for Shade on Golden Velvet, my first Sam...so I guess I just joined the 'lineage breeding' crowd as well. *grins*

The next really big one for me might be a Celestial Elemental stallion. I've had a name and basic design picked out for a while now, and for some reason I tend to think that he exists already; I don't know how many of the Elemental mares I've looked at, and thought they'd be great in a Song together. *grins sheepishly* Probably means he'll never exist, but oh well.
And I don't know what this says about me, but I'd absolutely love to see my entry from the 666th Sam contest come to life too. XD I'm pretty sure that will never happen, but I do so enjoy her creepy ways.

For more daily things, I just really like to see anything new- new combinations of traits, new words in names...if I could somehow be part of a new species or trait, I'd be pretty ecstatic about it. Not that there isn't enough about the Sam world to love already- it's just fun to feel like you contributed to it somehow. *smiles*

I have a couple of small goals....

There's an elemental kicking around in the back of my mind that won't go away. I really don't know how to bring him to life though, because spending RL moneys on a custom is verboten, and I don't know that there's a pair out there yet that would work to use to breed him, not to mention I don't think there's a modiem combo that could make it work. (Note to self, ask Sushi) But man... he would be something special.

Another is for all of my mares to have babies, whether or not I actually own them. I just love the breeding process, how well Sushi blends the parents into an offspring that's like them, but still totally its own self.

Other than that, there are a few species I'd like to get ahold of, I'd love a Tribal Sam, a Rider, and a Minayr. Also an Illiayr... love the glowyness!

I'm dredging this thread back up because I have a new goal to strive for... An alphabet of sams! I want to have all the letters of the alphabet represented in the starting letter of a sam's name... Like A for Acrobat of the Leaping Waves, B for Burble of Delectable Delight etc.

I'm at 12/26 sams right now. It's not something that I'll put a lot of effort into achieving, but it's kinda fun to track :mrgreen:

There's a couple goals on my mind. I think the biggest two are to just get some sort of an elemental at all and a very rave-esque Illiayr. Bright colors on pale/dark colors are always killer, hehehehe. Of course I have various custom ideas. For a while I had wanted a Cloverfield monster mimic- all monster and multiple limbed and with big head lungs. <3 Perhaps one day, but that want has been superseded by the urge to get my own monstersona, Hallow, made into as many adoptables as possible, including Sams.

Oh no, I'm just realizing that, because of her braids, I may have to make her a Mystic! Hm, that would be interesting, seeing as I already have her as a spirit summoner and all. x)

Otherwise... monster-y sams, bright glowy sams, ghost sams, sharks sams... I have a lot of ideas I'd love to have around to play with. c:

I've sort of completed a couple of my goals- getting an integrated (trice over!) and getting an aboreal.

And I'm another huge fan of the Elementals. Would love to have for lightning!

You should look for a Cyclone baby, he's a Storm Elemental after all! ;3

XD I still need an Air and (normal) Fire (though I do looooove Purgatory XD), a midst other elemental combinations, then there's the mass of children that Erosion needs to have, and more from Rustle, eventually I want to get a lot more sa'grisayrs and merge up a song with a few of them (then other people can use them and their glorious selves X3 *for the love of sa'grisayrs* XD) BUT I do want to attempt getting more breeds, (I still need a Northernnnn XD poof!), I have eons worth of animal mimics (mostly birds, BUT I did come up with many ecosystems of mimics too XD but those probably won't be explored into for a long time), and I also want to try and get all the alphabets worth of names in XD (Note to self: stop using P's (Purgatory, Paradise), R's (especially R's - Rapture Rustle Retreat), and W's (Wrangler and Wanderer))
