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.

News

Welcome to January!

Hello everyone! Happy New Year, we hope that everyone will have a wonderful 2021 full of healing and happiness. We're back with a new update for January 2021!  Our intrepid exploring peddlers return from a trip to the ice.

Our seventh month of limited shops has arrived:
January's theme is the Winter Scholar!

A vibrant shimmer of crystals is suspended in time. Winter winds
regale the curious traveler with songs and tales of ancient knowledge.
Treasures are there for the taking, if the great bell tolls nine.

What are Monthly Shops?
  • Every month, Pai and Oran from Peddler's Port will have different sets of 8 items in their shops that will retire at the end of the month to be replaced by new stock.
  • These items are obtained from far away lands and follow the theme of the land they visited each month.
  • All retired items from Monthly Shops will eventually be able to be obtained very rarely from Grandma Agnes later on.

How can I get to Peddler's Port?
Peddler's Port is a seaside location that you can unlock by going through the main storyline in Louise Hill. Once unlocked, you can visit Peddler's Port any time without using up a town hop!
winterscholar_paishop.png
Pai's Shop of Wonders
Pai will host these 8 items in their infinite stock shop this month for 200 turnips each. If you spend 2000 turnips, you will be able to choose a free item of your choice! Free item claims will expire 3 months after obtaining them.

winterscholar_agnesshop.png
Agnes' Perpetual Shop

Agnes' shop stocks a chest that contains a set of Pai's 8 shop items for 1500 Turnips, ideal for collectors who want a full set at a small discount.

What are Turnips?
Turnips are the untradeable premium currency of Dappervolk. You can purchase them with real life currency here, as well as obtain them occasionally through gameplay.

winterscholar_oranshop.png
Oran's Emporium
Oran's chance shop will be stocked with these eight items for 9,000 potatoes per spin!

These monthly shops will run until January 31st, after which they will be removed to house February's monthly items!

AD THEATER STREAK REWARDS
We have plans to add seasonal and other bonus items to the Ad Theater reward streak over time. For now, the reward streak will include one of the month's seasonal deity items each month! Visit the Theater and click on the "CHECK REWARDS" button to see the new rewards!

UPCOMING UPDATES
Here's a quick look at the updates we're focusing on right now!

LOUISE HILL RIDDLE CONTEST RESULTS
We're still in the process of reviewing each submitted riddle to determine the winners, there were a record number of submissions during the contest which is why it's taken some time. We're hoping to put some more time into finalizing results this month as well as inputting all winning riddles into the Louise Hill adventuring area!

CUSTOM MAKER SUBMISSION
We've almost finished with the backend adjustments we wanted to make to the system so we're in final testing stages now! We'll let everyone know once the queue is ready to be opened officially. The custom maker submission rules will also be announced a week in advance of the queue opening!

NICO'S ATELIER UPDATE
We're currently working on all the new items we had planned for Nico's along with outline updates, we're aiming for an update some time in January!

WINTER FESTIVITIES
We're working on a Winter Festivities event which we're hoping to have take place some time in February, we're excited for everyone to be able to explore more of the seasonal lore! More info will be posted about this as we develop the event details.

HOUSING
We're progressing smoothly with establishing the basic frameworks and mechanics of housing at the moment, as our artists simultaneously work on assets! Eventually, once the feature gets closer to completion we'll be able to show everyone sneak peeks.

As always, thank you so much for playing and supporting
Dappervolk. We'll be back with more updates soon!

December 22nd Update!

Hello everyone! We hope you're having a lovely holiday season so far while staying safe and warm. We've been busy behind the scenes working on various updates, we'll be outlining all changes from the maintenance earlier as well as other topics below!
guildsdivider.png
AD THEATER
  • The Ad Theater feature has arrived! Simply visit the Playground to access it.
  • In the Ad Theater, you can watch videos and advertisements to earn potatoes for each video you watch.
  • Video and advertisement content depends on your interests and browsing patterns determined by our ad provider. Advertisements will occasionally appear in the middle of videos which will give you extra earnings once watched.
  • You can also earn turnips, potatoes, and item rewards if you watch a minimum of 6 videos per day consecutively to complete the multi-day reward streak.
  • More info on rewards can be seen on the Theater page.
  • Adjustments and bug fixes may be made as we monitor the feature's launch in the coming days.

theater.png

By watching ads, you're helping to support the game for free. Thank you so much for your help!

ADVENTURING OPTIMIZATION
  • We've reworked the entire backend image calling and processing system for Adventuring.
  • This allows for a much smoother and shorter game loading time, and should also moderately reduce cpu usage.
  • Due to the image cache, this update may take a few days of refreshing to fully integrate. Feel free to report any bugs you find to the Bug Reports forum!
  • We're also working on updating the sprite thumbnails and additional adjustments down the line, since our backend system for npc events and images is more robust now!

STAT AFFINITIES
  • Stat affinities have been added back in, this means that pet food and quest stat gains are once again affected by either the pet's nature or the player's class.
  • If you're an elven class, you can now get +1 bonus charm for quest rewards or if you're getting +1 tenacity, there is a chance you'll get +0 tenacity.
  • If your pet is comprehensive nature, it can now gain +1 bonus comprehension or +0 honour if +1 honour is rolled from pet foods .
  • Stat affinities for Daily Bonus Stat Tasks have been adjusted so that the stat your strength is in will give you one extra stat task and your weak stat will have one less stat task each day. This has been adjusted so that no effort is wasted and so that there is a limit to stat weakness for tasks.

MINIGAME UPDATES
  • Vaer Sea Forage's potato reward gain has been increased for better balancing.
  • Currently, we're lacking the expertise to fully fix some of the reward and score keeping bugs affecting some users. If you're only experiencing the reward generation issues on mobile, we'd suggest that you try playing on a different device for now. We'll keep at it and give you updates if we manage to fix the issues!

PET PROFILE NAVIGATION BUTTONS
  • Pet profiles now have NAVIGATE buttons that will scroll through the user's menagerie, allowing for a more convenient user experience.
  • The order should go by the saved pet order in each pen, and loop back to the first pen once the last pen's pet is reached.
  • There may be some discrepancies for pens with newly obtained pets that haven't had their order manually sorted by the user.
  • All new unsorted pets will be ordered by ascending pet ID when navigated through.

BLOCK SETTING UPDATES
  • Directly linked trades market lots can no longer be viewed by a blocked user of the trade lot's creator.
  • Accessory usages can no longer be granted to a user who has been blocked by the accessory's owner, or if the owner is blocked by the recipient of the usage.

TICKET STATUS
We're currently keeping on top of new tickets being sent in, and continuing our work on going through the remaining bulk of older tickets. Some tickets with the same query that are currently unanswered are those we're working on a consistent way to address or handle them, and others are situations or contain issues that we need to deliberate over before making a decision. Thank you very much for your patience!

PET ACCESSORY STATUS
We're up to date and keeping up well with all pet accessory design submissions. There is an average wait time of 1-4 days after submitting your accessory for approval. We're working on some visual and text based updates to the rules in order to cover details that are currently not included/up to date. In the meantime, since our ticket queue is manageable, feel free to send in a ticket or PM Admin #1 if you have questions about an accessory submission you're unsure about!

Congratulations to everyone who won, and thank you so much for participating!

futureplans.png

Here are some thoughts and improvements in regards to the event features we designed this season!
  • Our Autumn event was our first foray into a more forum based event run manually by staff.
  • In the future, our plan is to have one fully coded event feature with different mechanics per season (4 different types in total) with side activities such as creativity forum threads, seasonal quests, and various other site based mechanics to supplement the main event type!
  • Event Shop and Currency removal date will be staggered to be after other dates from the start to give everyone time to buy what they want before it closes.
  • Event shop items will be stationary rather than changing in order upon refresh/purchase.
  • "Currency" type item will be added to allow better inventory sorting.
  • Seasonal event quest will not have a repetition loophole after completion for future events in which you can get more snacks per day if you don't complete the seasonal quest right away. We'll make sure this experience is the same for everyone!

 
Our next more major event will be some time within the winter months, we'll update everyone with more info as we plan!

Welcome to December!

Hello everyone! We hope you all had a kind and healthy November. We're back with a new update for December 2020! As winter winds rise, we delve deep into the earth.

Our sixth month of limited shops has arrived:
December's theme is the Eclipsed Seraph!
eclipsedseraph_image.png
Beneath the great abyss, lies a well of sparks.
A grand trial of secrecy and a flurry of wings denotes your arrival.
Treasures abound are acquired at great cost to the explorer.


eclipsedseraph_previews.png
What are Monthly Shops?
  • Every month, Pai and Oran from Peddler's Port will have different sets of 8 items in their shops that will retire at the end of the month to be replaced by new stock.
  • These items are obtained from far away lands and follow the theme of the land they visited each month.
  • All retired items from Monthly Shops will eventually be able to be obtained very rarely from Grandma Agnes later on.

How can I get to Peddler's Port?
Peddler's Port is a seaside location that you can unlock by going through the main storyline in Louise Hill. Once unlocked, you can visit Peddler's Port any time without using up a town hop!

NEW PET ACCESSORY MAKER BUNDLE
Agnes's Perpetual Shop now stocks a Pet Accessory Maker Bundle in which you can get five for 1750 turnips! This means that each maker comes at a discount of 350 turnips if you buy the bundle.

WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON
Here's a quick look at the updates we're focusing on right now!

Adventuring Optimization
Our adventuring optimization is going through its final stage of testing now! If no new issues are found, we'll be able to reflect the new update onto the site with our next push.

Ad Theater
The Ad Theater is also nearly complete and going through its final testing and adjustments. More info on both of these updates in a new post once they're ready!

Nico's Atelier Item Update
We're planning to create some new items for Nico's Atelier as well as do outline adjustments on some of the existing items.
The types of items we're planning to add include:
  • Simple eyes & mouths (Smiles, closed eyes, etc)
  • Basic shoes
  • Patches & sparkles - To take the place of skin decor items that were previously able to be layered on top of clothing.
  • Glasses/Monocles
  • Earrings
  • Plain Skins

Custom Maker Queue
While finalizing the queue system, we've discovered a potential issue with our custom item system that we'd like to look over in order to safeguard our database for the future, we thank everyone for their patience as this gets resolved.

Vaer Reef Quest Update
We're working on final revisions, inputting, and testing the Vaer Reef Quest adjustments as well as Affection Milestone Side Quests. More info on this as we make progress!

Our fifth month of limited shops has arrived:
November's theme is the Masked Wanderer!

WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON
Here's a quick look at how we're progressing and some things that we're prioritizing right now!

fallevent2020_divider.png
• Fall Festivities •
We're working on planning, writing, and drawing for a different kind of event for the Fall. This event will occur this month and will contain the following:

  • Many ways throughout the site's gameplay to collect an item that can be used as currency in an event shop open later in the event!
  • A big staff-run event thread with creativity prompts and surprise trivia based around Dappervolk's lore. Prizes will include raffled, staff picked, and participation rewards!
  • A series of autumn quests revealing more of Dappervolk's November deity and autumn lore.
  • Small social media giveaways and activities throughout the month!

Since we won't have a big event feature ready for this season, we're going to do our best to have fun with everyone with lots of different smaller activities! We'll tease an event start date via a Status update when we're ready with a concrete date!

Guild Fixed & Adjustments
For the last few days after Guilds were released, we've been hard at work making fixes to new bugs and small adjustments to balance and improve the feature. We've been updating a Changelog post with all changes that are being made as we make them.

Adventuring Optimization, Custom Queue & Ad Theater
These are the features we'll be working on in between getting the event ready. We'll need to coordinate the timing of releases with our event and overall schedule. More info on each update will be released as we get to finalizing release dates!

Smaller Bug Fixes & QoL Adjustments
Here's a non-exhaustive list of some smaller updates we'll be working on rolling out in between our larger updates.
  • Adding Stat Affinity/Weaknesses back in with the adjustments we have planned for the stat bonus task system.
  • Investigating some pet milestone related bugs in which a traded pet's milestones are missing.
  • Birthday letter bugs - We've addressed most of the wrong birthdate tickets, but we've discovered some new birthday related bugs that we're currently investigating before we do manual letter reimbursements.
  • Some minor pet accessory system UI fixes and adjustments to streamline the experience.
  • Some pet system related bug fixes that will improve the experience.
  • Text editor improvements, we're looking into updating our plugins related to our text parser which should make text editing and our bbcode more consistent.

Guild Creation Officially Open!

Hello everyone! Guilds can now officially be created! We've been working hard behind the scenes to prepare for it and we're so excited to finally be able to share this feature with the community. We're looking forward to all of the fun community niches that will be created here on Dappervolk in the form of Guilds.

guildimg_info.png
What are Guilds?
A Guild on Dappervolk is a player created community hub complete with a guild-only forum, live chat, leveling system, and upgrades to improve the Guild's perks. A Guild's community will work together and level the Guild as well as complete upgrades by doing various activities onsite.

How can I join a Guild?
You can look for a Guild to join in the Guild Subforum or via the Guild Directory! Some Guilds will opt to have open applications while others will be invite only. Each Guild has limited member space that will depend on the upgrades that they have completed.

How can I Create a Guild?
There are certain requirements that a Guild founder will need to meet in order to create a Guild. Once you meet the requirements, you can speak to the Guild Officiator at Peddler's Port to obtain a Guild license.
  • You will need to have a minimum of 4500 collective affection in the town that you'd like to establish your Guild in.
  • You will need to pay a one-time fee of 100,000 Potatoes to create your Guild.
  • Lastly, 4 other users will be required to commit to joining your Guild as founders in order to get started. An invitation will be sent to them which must be accepted before the Guild can be fully created.

Essential Links
The Guild FAQ is regularly being updated as questions are asked!

While the userbase gets settled into this new feature, we will be keeping a close eye on Guilds for bugs and issues that may only appear when hundreds of users start playing. Please bear with us as we tackle any bugs that arise! We are looking forward to all of the different guilds our community will be coming up with and customizing. We hope everyone has fun!

UPCOMING FEATURES, FIXES, & EVENTS
Lately things have been a bit quieter in terms of smaller news updates, as we've been quite busy behind the scenes working on the preparations for bigger updates! Below is a brief overview of some of the major upcoming things to look forward to that we've been working on recently. Each section will be covered in further detail in future updates!

Adventuring Optimization
Now that our Guilds feature is ready for release, we'll be focusing more development efforts on Adventuring optimization. Our current backend rework plans should reduce loading speed by a good deal as well as help out with CPU usage moderately. As a heads up, there will likely be up to a week of no site fixes being pushed to allow our coding developers to prepare the optimization in full before committing a live update.

Custom Creator Queue
This feature is next on our list of updates to put out, along with Adventuring Optimization. The two will likely be released together! We will make sure to give everyone a heads up before releasing this feature.

Fall Event
Our backend developer is also hard at work on new event types that will be different from the first major summer event that we had during August! However, due to the scale of effect that major events have on the entire site, we are not currently sure if we'll have time to fully implement and test a new major event type in time for a fall celebration. Nevertheless, we are actively planning festivities for the month of November regardless of whether or not the site is ready to host our next major event type!

Vaer Reef Quest Adjustments & Affection Quests
Currently, our writers have been working on adjustments to the Vaer Reef story quests and reworking the resulting Affection Milestone quests to better fit these changes. More info on this will be made available once all of the writing has been finalized and the adjustments are ready for implementation!
