OK this might sound weird, but relative to the human world, what time period would the story be set in. Would it be set in like the early 1900's or close to our time? Because I noticed that Mew York seems slightly more advanced, technologically wise, than the other cities/towns in the story.

That’s because you haven’t visited the other cities yet! They’re each advanced in different ways and behind in others, though with how much they’re progressing communication-wise, it’s easier for them to spread ideas in the current timeline.

Are Ted and Miranda going to get into Flora as well?

It took me a few hours of letting this question sit in my inbox to realize what you were referring to!

I can assure you they weren’t particularly interesting. Maybe one day I’ll recycle the names, but we’ll have to see!

Is there any official law enforcement in Mew York or is it all vigilante justice? What if someone was planning to...lets say... bomb the embassy building due to past grievances with some of the diplomats or rob the Mew York Reserve Bank for a get rich quick scheme, unless the bank teller is a manticore whose there to stop them? ps: I read the prompts. almost half the diplomats are complete jerks.

There’s official law enforcement, yes. 

And if someone was planning all that, they’d get arrested before it all went down.

How many more reference pages until the story continues?

Probably another couple weeks until then!

i drew some more spraypaint skunks based on personalities generated with this. its fun to make unique characters!!

are spraypaint skunks always black(ish) with pink highlights/markings, or can they be different collors besides those? Also dos the colour of there spray always the same as there highlights/markings, or can they have spray that's different colours to those and if so is there spray locked to 1 colour or can they change it between sprays?

They can be any colors! Their markings can also be different. I’m sure multi-colored spraypaint skunks exist, too, but those are probably rarer.

Does the element of Light encompass only visible light or the entire EM spectrum?

The entire spectrum

The species sheet of imps says they are intersex but according to eevee, the accurate term for them would be hermaphrodite since it's species wide and apparently they have both types of fully functional sexual organs. Are they that and the species sheet is wrong or is it a meta kind of thing where imps would prefer to be referred to as intersex due to some sort of stigma attached to the term hermaphrodite in that universe?

Imps are outside of “male and female” sexual organs, even if their genitalia often looks like a mix. Imps are able to reproduce with species that don’t have standard genitalia or standard “male/female” sexes. They have one set of reproductive organs that changes (sometimes rapidly, sometimes slowly) according to what’s needed, and that’s not always to “egg/sperm” - hermaphroditic almost fits, but it starts to fall outside of that a little with the organs being able to change to reproduce with things that can normally only reproduce with themselves.

Intersex was picked as a term because they’re almost always going to display characteristics that don’t fit solely “male” or “female” of the species they’re a mix of. For instance, pygmy pyzkyes and regular pyzkyes are female and male respectively (as far as reproductive organs go), normally, but if you had an imp mix — there would be confusion on its appearance because it would be a mix of both. I’d pull up an example of some other male/female differences mixed into one, but we don’t have a whole lot of species with different secondary sexual characteristics yet! But imagine if we did, the imps would usually display a mix of those traits normally associated with “male” and “female”.

So basically, I picked “intersex” because they often look like they’re between male and female secondary sexual characteristics. I didn’t list “hermaphrodite” because I didn’t want to capture the idea of “male and female” organs since theirs are something different, allowing offspring with any individual who’s not sterile. This only matters more to mention as species with different methods of reproducing are introduced. For instance, Heartbreakers and Moonmen don’t have a normal set of “male/female” organs, but imps can reproduce with them regardless. In practice, it can look like hermaphroditism, but it should be differentiated. There’s no actual word for this in English that I know of, which makes this hard.

Also: I apologize, on the sheet it looks like BECAUSE they’re intersex they can reproduce with almost anything, when it should be that they’re intersex and CAN ALSO reproduce with almost anything. I didn’t mean to imply that being intersex caused the the reproductive ability, and should have taken a little more space to clarify that. (Hopefully words here will suffice in that regard.)

Do people of the floraverse believe in an afterlife?

A lot of them do!

do zoos and aquariums exist in floraverse?

Yep! But usually there’s a large amount of space for the zoos so the critters have a nice simulated wild environment.
