oMpPsIs.jpg FAQ oMpPsIs.jpg


1. Can I have non-hard mode lions ( lions with outside heritage bred outside of hard mode rules ) in my pride?
- You may have some lions in your den which do not qualify for hard mode, but these lions MUST be labeled as such and may NOT be bred into your royal lines. ( you may use these lions for non-breeding roles such as a submale used to train male cubs, or for side-project breeding, but all cubs produced from such side projects must be labeled as non-hard mode and may never be used as an heir)
For consistency's sake, you may not have any such lions when applying.

2. How do I label non-hard mode lions in my den?
- You may label them by putting "Non-Hard Mode" in their subtitle, OR by putting them in a separate cave, and labelling the cave as "Non-Hard Mode" either in it's name or it's description. If this method disrupts your current naming system, PM me and we can work out a method that works for you. The bottom line is that they MUST be labeled and it must be consistent.

3. May I use studs if they have no heritage?
- If a stud has NO heritage (unknown/ unknown in the parents slots and all other slots) , then YES, you may use him to stud your lionesses.

4. May I stud to my own side account?
- IF your side account's king is heritageless, then YES, you may use your side account to stud. You may not stud to any lion that does not fit within the rules of :Hard Mode: listed on the clan page (aka you may not stud to any lion with heritage).

5. May I use the oasis customizers to customize my king or create a custom lioness?
- YES you may use lions which have been customized in the oasis.

6. May I use marking applicators, nose changers, event applicators, etc?
- YES, any and all applicators from the oasis and events may be used. This also includes markings applied with Piety during the November event.

7. May I purchase NCLs or Special Raffle Lionesses from other players?
- If another player claims or wins an NCL or Raffle girl with no heritage, and puts them up for sale, then YES you may purchase and use these lions. As long as they have no heritage you are good to go!

8. May I purchase Gen 2 cubs from other players?
- YES, you may purchase cubs if they are pure second generation ( only parents in their heritage ). If any grandparents, etc appear in their heritage, you may NOT purchase them.

9. May I use a heritageless male groupie to clear my kings heritage?
- ONLY if your king that you are stat/heritage replacing was bred in your pride according to Hard Mode rules. You may NOT use a heritageless stat replacer to make a lion with non-qualifying heritage into a heritageless one. To begin the Hard Mode challenge, you MUST re roll and begin from scratch with a rolled king, then breed all heirs following Hard Mode rules. Heritageless groupies may then be used to help keep your own lines inbreed-free if you so wish.

Thank you so much for the invitation! I pride myself on having a line of 100% pure lions. All my lions are descended from just two, my first ever rolled king and an NCL.

Thanks Cerrates! I'm excited to be here! My breeding goals are really to continue my line, breed the highest stats and the prettiest colors. Here are the two lions that started my entire pride and that every member is descended from:

Thank you so much! I know all my lions are incredibly inbred, but who cares?

Lol yeah. But Lioden isn't set up to be affected by inbreeding so it doesn't really matter. Grandparents don't even affect cubs. It would be cool if they did, but the coding would be super complex.

Plus when breeding animals, most breed traits are refined through inbreeding. The trick with irl breeding is to work the desired traits into your lines without simulntaniously fostering genetic weaknesses. Some colors and traits have to be inbred to a certain extent to exist irl because they are recessive.
So with that in mind, and for the purpose of this challenge you kind of have to do a pretty good amount of inbreeding to get and build up marks.

But on the other hand, whenever you introduce a new NCL or Raffle girl into your pride you get 100% new blood instead of adding someone else's inbreeding to your pride like often happens when you buy cubs. So it kind of balances out a bit.

I'm currently very happy with my pride. Honestly, if I won the special lioness, I would most likely keep her. Then again...I think I'm the only user on Lioden that can claim that all the lions they have are descended from just one rolled male and an NCL. I have no idea how I started doing this, but it's become kind of an obsession/OCD thing at this point. I really like that inbreeding has zero effect on this game. My lions are legitimately 100% pure Ainsley blood through and through. I love my king and my 120 highly inbred lionesses!

Hello everyone! Mad Hyena here!

Ive been doing heritageless pride challange for a while now! I started it as an effort to minimise buying other people's cubs and avoid overpopulation (lol) and realised how fun it was to achieve certain goals with only wild females and your king.

Since reaching my biggest breeding goal (heritageless king with my needed markings and tsavo mane) I dont have specific goals, just generally hunting for bright, colorful NCLs and cotton root barked NCLs.

Im proud to say my lethal baby Bibi is a project cub, daughter of previous, heritageless king and an NCL.
