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.

Welcome to June!

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!

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.

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

    I'm very excited about the quest rebalancing. It's much needed. I've left DV a few times in the past because of awful wrist strain.
  • Villager gatorbrush (#37805) 1 Jun 2022, 8:54 am
    best monthlies so far
  • Villager SadRain (#27) 1 Jun 2022, 9:54 am
    Absolutely over the *moon* (heh) with this month's set. Feels like someone has been caught up in the Dracula Daily saga! Just kidding. Truly loving these monthlies.

    Also very excited for the daily changes and the new event coming later in summer, it sounds very interesting and I'm glad you made a call. Honestly, change from deity events could be very refreshing and give more diverse feel to events. What a great news post. Thank you for all your hard work!
  • Villager Toast (#56722) 1 Jun 2022, 10:54 am
    This month's set looks very nice!

    Please consider to release the summer event items again in whatever event comes next. These items have not been accessible for newer users who were not here in Summer 2020. Thank you!

    I’m not thrilled with the reduction of daily quests, it’s my only way of making potatoes and I’m already struggling to spin Oran each month. All the other changes overall seem great but please don’t take away the daily quests.
  • Villager Daviationsss (#42378) 1 Jun 2022, 11:30 am
    dinomatika (#32909) they said they will not be reducing the overall potato amount you will be getting, in fact increasing it. You'll just have to click less to get the same or a bigger amount don't worry
  • Villager Darkerdemons (#20213) 1 Jun 2022, 11:38 am
    OMG Throwing potatoes and turnips wildly for newest items!
  • Villager BlackRose (#9895) 1 Jun 2022, 12:52 pm
    Those talking about the higher price should take a step back and look at what previous sets were and what prices they were. I honestly thought the price was a bit high too, but then I went through and looked at the prices and no, it's basically right around what a set like this should be. Which I do still feel is high, but I mean they've always been touted as premium clothing, so premium stuff is going to be expensive as much as I do dislike that being someone who can't buy Turnips with real money. I think my math is all correct, but it was a lot of info to keep track of so maybe some things are slightly off. Lol


    Name of set - item count, price of chest, what the chest discount is

    Unicorn - 8 items, 1500, 100 discount
    Wanderer - 8 items, 1500, 100 discount
    Seraph - 8 items, 1500, 100 discount
    Scholar - 8 items, 1500, 100 discount
    Mystic - 8 items, 1500, 100 discount
    Mage - 8 items, 1500, 100 discount
    Forest - 8 items, 1500, 100 discount
    Historian - 8 items, 1500, 100 discount
    Verdant / Pale - 6 items each, 1000 each, 200 discount each
    Advisor - 10 items, 1500, 500 discount
    Artificer - 9 items, 1500, 300 discount
    Botanist - 8 items, 1500, 100 discount
    Wayfarer - 8 items, 1500, 100 discount
    Warden - 10 items, 1700, 300 discount
    Chef - 8 items, 1500, 100 discount
    Symphonist - 8 items, 1500, 100 discount
    Soiree - 7 items, 1500, 100 discount
    Painter - 8 items, 1500, 100 discount
    Garden - 8 items, 1500, 100 discount
    Forager - 6 items, 1600, 200 discount
    Vintner - 10 items, 1700, 300 discount


    So Advisor was the first 10 item set, and that was just when they started branching out to more than just 8 items so they were probably sticking to 1500 for that chest because they didn't know what to price more items at. Warden was the second 10 item set, and that's the exact same as the current set. So it seems like 10 item sets are going to 1700 for their chests, and the usual 8 items (and occasional 7 or 9) sets are going to be 1500. The only reason last month's 6 items were 1600 for the chest was because you were getting 2 hatchables that are 500 Turnips each instead of 200.


    ANYWAY, I want to say too that I absolutely love this set! Like wow. :O It perfectly fits so many of my likes. This is the absolute best set ever!
    Also really looking forward to the quest balancing!
  • Villager Aranea (#6971) 1 Jun 2022, 6:30 pm
    went back and reread the logistical site updates, and i just want to say thank you for planning to make changes to dailies! i’m excited to see the new npc items!
  • Villager ClearBright (#4344) 1 Jun 2022, 7:41 pm
    VAMPIRE SUMMER??? So unexpected but even more welcome ;0;
  • Villager Badgerpaw (#64304) 2 Jun 2022, 1:38 am
    "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."

    I really, REALLY hope that includes affection rewards, because otherwise you've more than doubled the time it take to raise affection, and it already takes a long time.
  • Villager Poppy (#221) 2 Jun 2022, 6:32 am
    The roadmap will be exciting when it's released because we can already predict that the other towns will be being revamped as well. So hopefully the revamp will reveal new exciting features on the horizon, as well as future towns and housing! I would love to see an actual dress up competition implemented on site, rather than through forum games. c:
  • Villager Pisulin (#65609) 2 Jun 2022, 11:30 am
    I hope those 3 quests max give as much potatoes as doing 7 quests gives right now, or I'll be really disappointed. Questing sucks already. I agree with Stigs on page 2 pretty much.
  • Villager IAmV (#39668) 2 Jun 2022, 6:39 pm
    Bratty_Crown (#65609)

    It's stated in the announcement: "Both tasks and rewards will be adjusted and scaled up accordingly. Potato rewards will be raised overall."
  • Villager Rinaminori (#2512) 2 Jun 2022, 8:00 pm
    New shop items :D! And less quests, scaled rewards. <3 I love quests, but too much repetition eventually made them feel like busywork.

    Also appreciate the above ^ info from BlackRose.
