A fool who went power hungry...If a weather god knows where he is, they're advised to find him- he can be quite the danger.
Shard of Glass | Bottled Clouds
Alto was once a loved member of the weather beasts, He used to control the rainstorms and the watery dew that showed up every morning on plants, working close with the sun bearers and the snow storms. Until one day Alto was approached by a mysterious goat. Who promised him power, and promised him control over means he would not otherwise have, they promised he'd be loved and appreciated for his power, all the figure asked for, was a small bottle of lightning.
Like a fool, he took the power.
Transformed into a horrible god of thunder, Alto would cause tornadoes and damage wherever he sought; destruction moved with him the longer he was allowed to do as he pleased, the lightning in his head made him go mad, made him lose it; this was all for the good of everyone, so why was everyone so scared? and Angry? When he was finally battled by the other weather beasts, he was locked away in a crystal ball for years, only to live as the look to the future, One of the weather beasts who held him closed used him as a toy, used him to tell goats of their futures- always sprinkling in a little bit of lies here and there, and Alto was angry, he needed to escape, to do what he wanted to, to take his revenge.
One day Alto escaped, He had managed to grow the smallest control over the crystal ball, rolling it off of the table he was perched on and smashing on the ground; He burst fourth, bright glowing glass following him from the smashed crystal ball- laughing maniacally as the storm overhead began to rage. He fled, Flying deep into the woods and disappearing from sights of those who wanted him locked up, those who know of him wish to hunt him down, but for now, he sits. He waits. And he plans.
To this day pieces of the glass he was once trapped in float around his being. Almost like a souvenir.

Offers on Goatlings must include at least one item. Another Goatling, Sugar Stars, and/or a max of 12 items can be offered in return.

+ Link to Goat Trades on member profile
We have gotten fantastic responses to our request thread regarding what programming updates members want to see next!
Requests involving the battle system seem to be the most popular. The current battle system includes the Battle Center, Explore Area, and Training Center. Upgrading these areas is something we’re very interested in doing, however, please understand that this will be a major undertaking.
To help free up time and resources, we may need to cut back on some other updates next year, such as canceling the 2020 Design-A-Goatling contest, and slightly smaller Token game updates. Additionally, we may run another small fundraiser to cover programming and art!
Because this would be such a large update - and would affect next year’s events - we would like more member feedback regarding this idea, and a vote to determine if members would like us to focus on the battle system, or on other updates that have been suggested.
Click here to give us further feedback on this idea
and read more about what the update entails!
Updates already in the works:
+ Goatling Trade Center (polishing up and will open soon)
+ Official Discord grand opening (on Dec 1st)
+ Resolve Lag Issue (running tests to pinpoint the cause and fix it - should be done by the end of Dec)
+ Adding https security (should be done by the end of Dec)
+ Updating code in areas that need it (should be done by the end of Dec)
Thank you everyone!
