The Zodiac: An Idea I Fully Support

Published by at 8:57 pm under Divines/Specials,News,Uncategorized

Some time ago, Howrse fully removed the old Ideas Forum and now ideas are posted in the Game Play forum until they get approved. If they do, the ideas are then posted in the main Idea Forum. (Found under Forum > The Ideas).

Possible picture of what the Zodiac could look like.

One idea that got my attention was “The Zodiac”. Yes, it is another divine horse idea, however, this has a twist. The Chinese New Year always has an animal associated with it. 2014 is the year of the horse. This player, Morbid~Soul, thought this special horse, with a Chinese symbol meaning “horse” on it’s hind leg, could be released then (or possibly sooner since it’s four whole years away). Each month, you have the option of getting a special prize from this divine horse. Also, a random friend on your Friend List will be chosen to get a special gift as well.

What’s different about this idea is that not just the breeder but a random friend has the chance of getting a prize as well. Plus, my addition to the idea makes it much more personalized and unique compared to other divines.

When I saw Zodiac, I immediately thought of Astrology and the Zodiac signs. Each sign is assigned to a month of the year. There is also a certain symbol and color associated with each one:

12 Zodiac Symbols

Aries: scarlet red (March 20 to April 20)

Taurus: yellow-green (April 20 – May 21)

Gemini: orange-yellow (May 21 to June 21)

Cancer: light emerald (June 21 to July 22)

Leo: rich orange (July 22 to August 23)

Virgo: varying shades of gray (August 23 to September 23)

Libra: light lemon (light lemon) (September 23 to October 23)

Scorpio: dark red (October 23 to November 22)

Sagittarius: ultramarine blue (November 22 to December 22)

Capricorn: brown-black (December 22 to January 20)

Aquarius: light blue (January 20 to February 18)

Pisces: lilac violet (February 18 to March 20)

Instead of this divine being just one color, it could have a color to represent each sign, kind of like the Ice Horses and the competitions. This will make this new divine relate more towards the player, even though it is just a picture made up of pixels. It’s something different that no other horse has.

(My full idea post is located at the bottom of page six of the original idea, The Zodiac. Follow this link to the idea page. Feel free to comment; if you like my addition to the idea, please post: “I like the part Jessica27 added as well,” or something similar. This way, Howrse knows about this extra part and won’t leave it out in case they were to approve this idea.
