1. What are mepians?
2. Is there a really easy way to get marens to enter my dream? I'm trying to make a nightmare garden on a separate file, but it's hard to paraloop around them. In my main my dream, I noticed one of those snake-like marens in my garden... I don't even see how I could paraloop around that thing!
3. Why do some of my nightopians have dragon-like wings?

I think that's about it for now. Thanks!

Kyle

1) A mepian is a cross breed between a Nightopian and a Nightmaren.

2) Just paraloop them. That's the only way to get them into your My Dream garden.

3) They might either be special mepians, or just weird mutations. Some Pians have these wings. It might be a graphical glitch.

Ok, I guess I'll help you with these questions.

1. A cross-breed between a nightopian and a nightmaren.
You can make some by paralooping a pian and a maren at the same time in a stage or you may have to grab a maren and spin it so you can aim it at a pian and if it hits it, it will create an egg.

2.Well some you could grab and it'll paraloop by itself or you may make a big circle around them making sure the sparkles connect in a circle.

3.It probably is part mepian at least in the wings. A mepian can have up to 5 maren traits that can appear in the head, body, arms, feet, and wings.

edit: eh I type slow, you beat me to it

I heard if a maren and a pian collide in my dream, it creates an egg. Would this produce a mepian?

Where does the name "mepian" come from, anyway?

I also heard marens eat nightmarens... Weird.

Dunno about the first one, but Mepian is made by the words Pian and Maren. And yes, Marens will eat Pians given the chance.

Naw, only in stages you can create mepians. As I've tried to explain by paralooping both or by a maren in ball form bashing/touching a pian.
Marens eat pians in My Dream but, I haven't seen them do that in the stages as pians are usually on the ground.
Mepian is probably just easier to pronounce than marepian I think.

Thanks for the reply, Daisy (I think that's you on my roster, lol!).

My pians keep creating those water ball things, but I keep launching them into the sky by mistake... ;___;

Is there any way to see your pian's healthpoints?

Their halos are an indication of their health. Yellow is perfectly healthy, orange is "gimme a snack, plz" and red is "omg I'm starving."

Yeah, Daisy's my name. Umm, those are just bubbles and they appear every so often anyway.
Check their halos to see if its hungry, if its yellow its fine, and its orange its hungry give it 1 blue chip. If it's red its about to faint give it 2 but, if it's has a dizzy symbol its fainted so you need to give it 2 chips to get it back to yellow.

edit: If you want any mepians I could give you one my garden is full of them.

Thanks for the answers. <_<

I usually just run around handing out blue chips at random because I have forty and counting at the moment- I'm trying to get as much as possible to see how it alters my my dream. A few of my pians just had stars floating around their heads... does this mean they're out of health points and don't die or disappear?

Well it gets harder to maintain them when there's more. Those dizzy star things means that it fainted and you need to give it blue chips or else if you leave the garden it will die.

3. Why do some of my nightopians have dragon-like wings?

Sheep mepians gain bat/dragon wings. Many enemies that lack wings give odd wings to pians when combined, such as insect wings for scorpion hybrids and such.

Its no glich I can assure you.

If you want to get marens into your dream... fly into them so you grab hold and if you let it do one whole spin, and hey presto it counts as a para loop, with that tip in mind it will be easy to Nightmare it Up ^_^ hope that helped

thanks, I have 80 pians myself and when I tried to paraloop a new meepian I made he never showed up (nor did the 3 nightopians that were next to him at the time). I wonder if you can only have 80 of them then?

Oh yeah they can die.

All you have to do is let them pass out and not throw blue chips at them.
Comes in handy if you are trying for a Superpian.

Naw, only in stages you can create mepians. As I've tried to explain by paralooping both or by a maren in ball form bashing/touching a pian.


Just thought it'd be important to point out that in the JoD strategy guide, it says (or at least implies) that mepians can be made in My Dream. Here's the passage that concerns it:

"If you decide that you no longer want to have a certain nightmaren in My Dream, you can get rid of it by hitting it with two blue chips, just as you would in any other situation. And because nightmaren occasionally destroy objects in My Dream, there's something to be said for controlling their numbers. However, the nightmaren also serve a purpose in My Dream. If a nightmaren and a nightopian collide with each other, they can form a completely new form of A-LIFE, which hatches form an egg. These unique forms of A-LIFE inherit the traits of their nightmaren and nightopian parents, and the results can be incredible!"

Granted that they don't SPECIFICALLY say the collision takes place in My Dream, but the passage does point to that given that they said that it was "purpose they serve" there. Maybe the guide's just inaccurate, as this is by Bradygames and not Sega themselves, but, just thought I'd bring it up.
