Welcome to October!

Hello everyone! Welcome to October, we hope you're ready for the spooky season!

Our sixteenth month of limited shops has arrived:
October's theme is the Spirit Wayfarer!
spiritwayfarer_IMAGE.png
A procession of lonely spirits, they traverse the night sky.
Lost among wheeling stars, until the sound of a great gong rings in the
distance, and the rattling of bones. A boisterous procession
follows its leader, clamoring freely to its destination.


spiritwayfarer_previews.png
See Full Item Previews here!

What are Monthly Shops?

  • Every month, Pai and Oran from Peddler's Port will have different sets of 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!

spiritwayfarer_paishop.png
Pai's Shop of Wonders
Pai will host these 8 items in their infinite stock shop this month for 200 turnips each. A chest containing a set of Pai's items is now also available in their shop in addition to Agnes' Shop, to allow for more freedom in purchase making. If you spend 2000 turnips, you will be able to choose a free item of your choice! Free item claims will expire 6 months after obtaining them.

spiritwayfarer_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. Agnes also has a Bonus Prize function in her shop. For every 2000 turnips you spend in her shop from now on, you'll be able to claim from her Bonus Prize pool, which will fluctuate and grow with time.

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.

spiritwayfarer_oranshop.png
Oran's Emporium
Oran's chance shop will be stocked with these ten items this month for 9,000 potatoes per spin! Each time you spend 100k potatoes in Oran's shop, you'll be able to pick one free item from his Bonus Prize claim. Bonus Prize items may change or grow as time goes on.

These monthly shop clothing items will run until October 31st, after which they will be removed to house November's monthly items!

WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON
Here's a look into what we're currently prioritizing, among other smaller bug and QoL fixes!

AUTUMN EVENT
We're hard at work on our upcoming October Autumn Event! This event will be our official third event type and will contain the following things:
  • Brand new Gathering & Growing event type
  • New Seasonal Mini Map
  • New Seasonal NPC
  • New Seasonal Event Quests
  • Event Shop with Clothing, Items, etc
  • Forum Contest Threads

The event will begin around the middle of October, an exact start time and further details will be posted closer to the start date!

WISHING WELL SEPTEMBER STREAM
This month, the art development stream will take place on...
OCTOBER 18TH, 4PM DVT
streambanner.png
A status post with a link to the stream will be posted when it begins!
We'll be working on a new batch of wishes from the Wishing Well thread. Hope to see you there!

BETA CHANGELOG & ROADMAP THREAD
While we're working on our Official Roadmap Thread and Beta Changelog, here's a sneak peek at a few things we'll be prioritizing in our Roadmap!

Daily Quest Rebalancing
  • Reduce clicks on daily repeatable quests by lowering the number of times you can do them per day
  • Condense quest dialogue
  • Raise individual quest rewards
  • Streamline tasks and quest setup
  • Roll-out would be town by town in between other updates

Recipes & Reward Pools
We're also planning to rebalance the way certain RNG item pools work. Currently, recipe items take up a large amount of the drop rate on several reward pools on site. We're planning to move all recipes to a dedicated NPC shop, and updating each reward pool with more desirable items. We're also working on ideas for shops and NPC's that would allow you to recycle your superfluous items for special rewards.

NICO'S ATELIER UPDATE
One of our new artist team's first projects is to work on a large Nico's update with many items that have been requested by our community. We're looking forward to releasing this update some time next month if all goes well!

Dappervolk. We'll be back with more updates soon!

rule updates, new forum sections, and our newly hired artist team.

new items and pets. 10 new clothing items and 1 new pet species

RULE UPDATES
We've made the following changes to the Terms of Service and Rules of Conduct. This will require users to re-sign the Terms of Service across the site! All rule adjustments were made for better clarity and to stay up to date with the development of our community.

TERMS OF SERVICE UPDATES

Adoptables/Closed Species Definition Update
Under section III. User Conduct, Clause 9. “Cross-site Trading” - 2. Genres of games with which cross-site trading is not permitted, we've elaborated on what an Adoptable and “closed species” community includes:
Adoptable and “closed species” adoptable communities that have their own game-like elements, currency, or assets which can be traded outside of the community.

VPN Rule Update
We've removed the no VPN rule to adjust to the fact that VPN's have become more and more essential to daily life for many in recent years. Rather than a blanket ban on VPN's, we've added an FAQ disclaimer for their usage:

Q: Can Dappervolk be accessed while using a VPN?
A: Users may use a VPN when accessing the site at their own risk. Usage may cause IP-related overlaps with others users due to how many service providers distribute IPs to their users. As it is difficult to detect VPN usage, this could result in investigation or account actions being taken due to how account interaction may appear to Staff. 

RULES OF CONDUCT UPDATES

Referral Bribery
We've added a section to describe our stance on referral bribery which occurs off-site.

Scamming
We've updated our rules on Scamming and expanded it into a section of its own for better clarity.

eventsgiveaways.png
NEW FORUM SECTIONS
With these rule updates, we've also updated the rules in some Forum Rules & Guideline thread as well as added brand new forums and subforums in order to better sort threads and provide spaces for activities that didn't exist before.
 
We'll be spending the next couple of weeks moving existing threads to the appropriate new forums. If you don't see your thread moved and would like it moved after a week, please send in a ticket to request it!

FORUM SECTION GUIDELINE UPDATES
We've added new rules & guideline threads stickied to the top of each new subforum:

Roleplay Content Guidelines
Events Forum Rules & Guidelines
Hangouts Rules & Guidelines
Customs Rules & Guidelines
Offsite Trades Rules & Guidelines
Art Posts Rules & Guidelines
Writing Commissions Rules & Guidelines
RP Classifieds Rules & Guidelines


We also updated the following existing forum stickies to stay in line with the updated content:

DV & Lore Rules & Guidelines
Tradesmarket Rules & Guidelines
Art Commissions Rules & Guidelines

You are lulled into an intriguing sense of curiosity, interested in the
endeavors captured on the far away port.
