Hello there, the name's Typhoon, and I'm here to talk to you about a new sensation sweeping..., well, Whistler Crest. That sounded a lot cooler in my head. Anyway—POGS! Y'see, here in Whistler Crest, we collect these nifty little wooden disks called Pogs, and each Pog represents some sort of achievement. You can keep them in a box, put them on display, or do what I do and sew them onto a pretty dang cool sash!
Did I forget to mention that earning Pogs can also earn you rewards? Probably should have lead with that.
Y'see, Pogs are pretty dang awesome! And depending on how many you collect, you can unlock rewards! Rewards are pretty cool too, right? Well I've got here a Council approved list of rewards for you guys! And a list of all currently available Pogs. Seems like there's quite a bit of neat stuff going on!
But please remember! Some Pogs are retired or were/are only accessible during events! So you should check the catalogue to be sure whether or not you can claim them for your collection.
You can check the Pog Catalogue, or Pogalogue as I like to call it, here:
It is also important that you keep track of your Pogs!
Remember to have a Journal or Sta.sh Writer document with your earned Pogs listed. This is so a Moderator/Admin can confirm you have collected the Pogs you say you have—we don't want anyone cheating! It's really simple to track Pogs. You have a few options for how you choose to display them, so feel free to be creative, so long as you keep an accessible account somewhere. A link will be necessary.
Oh, but you probably have some questions, I can answer those!
What are Pogs?
Pogs are fun and collectible little wooden disks which feature wood burned marks to identify them. Each Pog represents an achievement and showcases your accomplishments. They are meant to be like a symbol of everything from a good deed to participation in an event.
Why Collect Pogs?
• They're cool! Each Pog represents an achievement and your should be proud of these physical representations of your accomplishments.
• They're impressive! Personal collections are definitely something not only you can enjoy, but something you can show others as well!
• They're unique! There's not another thing like them in all of Kladeon! What's more rad than Pogs? Cards? Pft, we don't think so.
Where Do I Get My Own Pogs?
Simple, really, you earn them! Pogs can be obtained by doing just about anything and everything under the sun! Typhoon, your resident Pog Master, will be able to offer you a detailed list of available Pogs.
Rare And Valuable Pogs?
Pogs have a rarity value which can easily be seen when viewing them.
Standard Pogs are the most common, being a simple wood grain with no dyes or other visual enhancements.
VALUE: One (1) point per Standard Pog.
Toned Pogs are a rarer type of Pog which features dyes that add additional colours to the design.
VALUE: Two (2) points per Toned Pog.
Holographic Pogs are the rarest type of Pog, featuring dyes and finishes that add unique colours and lustrous shines to the design.
VALUE: Four (4) points per Standard Pog.
Hard to believe anyone would try and dupe you! But, alas, fake Pogs are not unheard of. Thankfully, there is an easy way to identify an authentic Pog from a forgery! Authentic Pogs are made from a specific tree known as the Poggin Tree, hence the name "Pog", which are grown domestically for Pog production. There's a unique pattern to the wood grain that's unmistakable! True Pogs are also wood burned ONLY! If the design runs off your Pog, it's fake!
Storing Your Pogs
Pog Sleeves: These sheets are designed to have Pogs slipped into them.
You can display several Pogs per page!
Pog Binders: These books are designed to have Pog sleeves clipped into them
for easy transport and storage of your collection!
New Pogs and awards will be added as the craze continues to grow! You should expect to see more Pogs be added to the catalogue, as well as new rewards for collecting them. Announcements will be made when new Pogs and or rewards are added, so remember to keep an eye on things!
For the application of reward upgrades:
You may do so at any time, we only ask that once you upload a submission featuring the new upgrade(s) that you link to your Pog tracker in the description so a mod/admin will be able to confirm.
Each reward can be applied ONCE PER CHARACTER!
With regards to earning Pogs:
You may claim a Pog more than once for your collection, but a Pog will only count once (1) towards rewards. So, for example, you may claim two (2) Grow Up Nyulop Pogs, but it will only count as one (1) Pog when you totaling up for Typhoon's rewards.
List of Rewards:
Upgrades can be applied to babies AND adults!
