Hey there, looks like you just wandered in. Why not have a look around and stay for a while, maybe even start your own adventure, if you're into that.

JULY ART DEVELOPMENT STREAM

JULY 10TH, 3PM DVT
 
streambanner.png
A status post with a link to the stream will be posted when it begins!
We'll be working on wishes from the Wishing Well thread.
Hope to see you there!

MID-MONTH CONTENT UPDATES
It's our plan to do small content updates in the middle of months in which there isn't a larger scale event going on or another large update planned, this means that this will be one of these months. We hope you enjoy what we have in store!

3'S FOREST BALANCING
Our team is working hard on art assets, planning and testing the daily quest balancing edits for 3's Forest. The update may be ready either late this month or some time next month!

SUMMER TEAM EVENT
We're working on mapping out our new team-based event type for the summer event. Our artists and writers are also working on the storyline and assets! We're planning for this event to start some time in late August to give our team enough time to prepare the brand new non-deity related event type. More updates on this will arrive as we progress!

AD THEATER VIDEO PLAYER
Our Ad Provider is deprecating the current ad video player in favour of one they've developed themselves in early July. We're planning to change over to the new player in the next couple of days, this means that there may be some potential bugginess in the beginning. If there ends up being any bugs that affect user streaks or ad watching progress site-wide, we'll be sure to compensate our ad watching community for it by restoring streaks.

BETA CHANGELOG & ROADMAP THREAD
Now that we've completed some larger milestones that we had prioritized, we'll be working on getting these two items ready at a higher priority.
Here's a small list of some long term goals that will be outlined in our future Roadmap thread:
  • Daily Quest balancing for each town in succession
  • Pet Accessory & Customs Marketplaces
  • Guild Rework/Updates
  • Sitewide Raffle System
  • New permanent towns and storylines
  • Housing

latesubmission.png
There was a timezone related mix-up with sorting contest entries which caused some entries in the final few hours before submissions closed to be marked as late and therefore not rewarded until now.

2449-MFH3DsAav3-carved-lotus-bud.png
To make up for it, we've decided to reward all mistakenly late entries with a Carved Lotus Bud as a participation reward. These rewards are being distributed in place of expiring event currency so that the participants can make use of them. We apologize for the mix-up!

We'd also like to reward a few extra creativity prizes from the missed portion of contest entrants, we loved these entries and are so glad they qualify for prizes!

Future-Plans.png
Here are some plans for improvements for future events like this that we've accumulated from hosting this event!

UI IMPROVEMENTS
We're planning to make changes to the event page UI in order to make it much easier to understand. Here are some of the changes we have planned:
  • We'll be moving certain information and grouping it in a more coherent manner. The amount of satchels in your inventory will be shown under the donate button, the pet blessing timer will be added into the pet interaction section. Certain areas of text will be modified to be more clear.
  • We'll be moving the contribute section above the track record section. Displaying the "your points" and "your tasks" tabs side by side will make spacing more compact for less scrolling, as well as make this section more readily available.
  • We'll be adding a progress bar under pet images for blessed pets to show how far their blessings are from being collectable.
  • We'll be moving personal tier milestone details above community milestone details and making all of the tier info more compact for less scrolling.

MECHANIC IMPROVEMENTS
  • We're planning to have it so that different tasks can have different point values so that more difficult tasks can accordingly receive more points.
  • We'll be looking at the item donation system and working on more clarity and balance.
  • We're planning to balance the community and personal milestones more evenly next year now that we've tried out the revamped system this year.
  • A few added mechanics such as "bless a pet" as a tracked task type, and additional daily donation rewards could be fun additions.
  • We're planning to look at the "visit random pet" system to see if we can make pet blessings feel less random and more efficient for recipients, such as prioritizing random active pets instead of just any pet.

Our next event is going to be a Summer Event some time in August with a brand new team based event type, with an unconventional non-deity based storyline!

Lian claps happily at Poe's latest display, this time several ornate
lotus blossoms are resting on her head and hands, blending into the
pond's scenery.
"You just wait Miss Shui, I'll be back later with more tricks up my sleeves!"

Lian smiles contentedly and states that she will wait patiently for Poe's
next performance, which is sure to be exciting considering how much
room is in her sleeves.

Louise Hill Balancing Update!

Hello everyone, hope you're doing well! This is our Louise Hill Balancing Update! This update includes a rebalancing of all Louise Hill daily errand quests as well as a collection of new NPC items and NPC shop adjustments.

balancingoverview.png
dailyerrandupdates.png
The following updates have been applied to all Louise Hill Daily Errands.
  • Maximum completions for each daily quest in Louise Hill have gone from 7 to 3.

    • This option can be used once per quest completion to generate a new task different from the initial one.

  • Tasks have been either edited or scaled according to the reduced number of dailies each day. Some higher effort tasks such as adventuring have stayed the same for better balancing.
  • Positive quest ending potato rewards were greatly increased.
  • Affection gained or lost has been multiplied to be equal to doing 7 quests previously.
  • Conecake rewards are now multiplied and increased.
  • Dual-stat NPC's now give out a random assortment of the two types of conecakes instead of a set kind.
  • Dialogue has been compressed to fewer total text boxes to lessen clicks.
  • Transitions and redirects have been updated to be more streamlined and give users more freedom.

newitems2022.png
A total of 83 new items have been released!
New items have arrived in each NPC's chance shop, the following shop stock adjustments have been made:
  • A Bonus Prize pool with claims costing an equivalent of 10 spins has been added to each NPC's shop.
  • Totems, Pen Expansions, and Wardrobe Expansions, have been moved to each NPC's Bonus Prize pool in their shop instead of being in the chance pool.
  • 1-2 newly drawn items have been added to each NPC's clothing set, each item with colourations matching that of the existing sets.

futureplansbanner.png
  • This is the first major installment of daily quest balancing that we have planned. We're planning to release these updates town by town in order to eventually balance all existing towns.
  • With the addition of new items as well as bonus prize pools for NPC shops, we're aiming to make it so that certain items are obtained by choice rather than by chance. For example, the pen expansions were being dropped too often and filling up inventories without any purpose, now they can be picked up only if the user wants one.
  • In addition, the bonus prize and shop stock updates have opened the possibility of adding new items more easily to NPC shops in the future within smaller content updates.
  • We'll be looking at how everything plays out on site scale and making any adjustments and notes for future updates!
  • Coming up next is the 3's Forest daily balancing, which will include a rebalancing of the 3 witches' temporary dailies within the main questline.
  • It's our hope that these balancing updates will make one of the core mechanics of Dappervolk more streamlined, less click intensive, less repetitive, as well as giving users some agency via the reroll option.

Hello everyone! Welcome to June, we hope you're having lots of fun with the spring festivities!

Our 24th month of limited shops has arrived:
June's theme is the Ravencrypt Vintner!
ravencryptvintner_IMAGE.png

The guttural call of a dark winged bird sounds like mist across deep waters. A red ring illuminates the moon, warning of calamity and a fall from grace.

Every year in June on Dappervolk, rainbows and prisms light up
the landscape anywhere they can. In the sky after a light mist,
in the reflection over a lake, and in the eyes of your loved ones.

QUEST BALANCING - LOUISE HILL
Our first round of quest balancing and existing town updates is scheduled for some time in the first half of the month. We're in our final stages of testing and asset preparation, and excited to see what you think!
Here's a more finalized list of daily quest updates as well as new assets and balancing adjustments for the update:
  • Max daily quest completions will be lowered from 7 to 3 per day.
  • Both tasks and rewards will be adjusted and scaled up accordingly. Potato rewards will be raised overall.
  • A Task Reroll option will be available at least once per quest and avoid the task you rerolled from.
  • Dialogue will be condensed together where possible to reduce clicks but not remove written assets.
  • Any transition issues will be adjusted for smoother questing.
  • Each NPC shop will house new items and a new set of recolours.
  • Certain items such as pen expansions and wardrobe expansions will be moved to npc shop bonus claims for more player choice.

We're also working on the 3's Forest balancing update which will happen some time after this month!

DAPPERVOLK'S SECOND ANNIVERSARY
June 21st marks our second year since official launch! Time sure flies, and we're so excited to be here with you. We have some small surprises and festivities in store for this anniversary, so look forward to it!

SUMMER EVENT DECISIONS
If we were to host a new deity based event this summer, Ivita would be the only deity that doesn't yet have any quests during this season, but time is quite tight since Ivita's month is in July. After some consideration, we've come to the conclusion that there isn't enough time to prepare a fully realized ivita event, and having back to back events with no downtime wouldn't be feasible for our team right now. 

So, instead of an Ivita summer event in July this year, we're planning to work on and launch a new team-based event type some time in late summer with a non-deity theme. The event will be focused around new mechanics and there should be some fun surprises and deviation from the norm, this will be a good way for us to test this event type for the first time and also give us time to prepare a fuller story for Fall. We'll keep you posted on developments, thanks for understanding!

BETA CHANGELOG & ROADMAP THREAD
These two items are on our to-do list, and will remain here until they are complete! Our aim currently is to get these items done once some items above are in order.

Here are some details on the upcoming Spring Event!

co-op-event-type.png

After going through feedback from previous years for the co-op style event, we've made some major updates to this year's event mechanics!
  • Instead of a single progress bar for event completion, there will be a series of community milestone prizes which are unlocked by the community's collective efforts.
  • Milestone prizes can be claimed by all participants regardless of contribution level once the prize is unlocked.
  • There will also be individual prize tiers for dedicated participants.
  • The community milestones can be reached by collective donation of a certain currency item which will be rewarded through event mechanics.
  • All tasks in the event will be tracked passively after visiting the event page for the first time, garnering donation currency as well as points towards individual prizes.
  • There will be a new pet interaction mechanic which generates rewards and cute effects on participating pets!
