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 September!

Hello everyone! Welcome to September, we hope you're doing well and getting temperate weather!

Our 27th month of limited shops has arrived:
September's theme is the Spectral Corsair!

Waves lap at your feet, with an ocean's surface far above. Distant
light filters down, illuminating vast towers of forgotten ships.
The faint rumbling of lost memories can be dimly heard.

With the arrival of the Autumn season, a new Seasonal Pet has appeared!

  • The ingredients to make the hatching item can be found in Pai, Agnes, and Oran's shops' Bonus Prize pools.
  • The item alchemy recipe is available in your recipe book and shown above.
  • This Seasonal Pet will remain in the shops for 3 months and rotate out at the end of November to be replaced by a pet for the next season.
  • Seasonal pets are obtainable annually on a rotation! The hatching items can be alchemized at any time of the year.

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!

SUMMER TEAM EVENT
We're hard at work on the team event, and are hoping to launch it some time this month! Currently, we're in the middle of coding, testing, asset creation and writing. We will keep you posted on progress and the launch date. If preparation takes too long for the event to happen this month, we'll be ready with a mid month content update to make up for the low tide!

AUTUMN EVENT
Thalies is our September deity, so traditionally, the Thalies Autumn Event would be taking place this month. However, since the summer team event was postponed to this month, we'll be launching the Thalies Autumn Event at a later date within this season. We have been working on this event's storyline and various content simultaneously, so we're looking forward to sharing it with you!

MODERATOR RECRUITMENT PLANS
We're hoping to expand our team of volunteer based moderators at some point either this month or the next. The aim is to bolster our community management as well as have more hands on deck to help with event contest management and possibly be able to hold additional mini contests or raffles in between major events. We'll have info on this with application forms when we're ready!

BETA CHANGELOG & ROADMAP THREAD
These two items are on our to-do list, and will remain here until they are complete! Currently, we're in the process of layouting our Roadmap thread. We're aiming to release these some time this month in between event preparation.

CUSTOM MAKER RAFFLE THREADS
We're planning to manually run some periodic raffle/contest threads with a custom maker as the main prize, as well as additional participation prizes for all entrants. Winning a custom maker via this method will only be open to users without any customs or custom makers in the hopes of allowing some different avenues for obtaining them. We'll be able to start this in the coming months, as the custom queue has been worked through to a very manageable size now.

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

    OMG this new set is sooooo gooood! WOWOWOWOW! Ohhhh and the HAIR looks GREAT on masc avis too!!! <3 So happy!!! :D

    This IS one of my favourite sets now - and that's saying a lot - my faves were previously Masked Wanderer and it's been a long time since then - also! - the artwork is so beautiful, it's hard to pick all-time favourites
  • Villager Clamie_Ty (#51057) 1 Sep 2022, 1:40 am
    Absolute slaycation on the pirate set!!! The colors are so pretty, and the items are fun to play with :3 Also looking forward to the other updates - changelog this month you say? Thanks for all the hardwork!!!
  • Villager Cormanthor (#37138) 1 Sep 2022, 3:35 am
    Wow! Great new set. Love the colors, and the full promo artwork is gorgeous. I love the new pet, too, and the added theater rewards are very welcome.

    Yes, yes, yes on the custom maker raffle! I thought it was a great idea when I saw it in the forums. Thanks DV for hearing us. <3.
  • Villager Storybook (#46587) 1 Sep 2022, 4:50 am
    I am in love with this set!! Thank you!! Also love the idea of a custom raffle :)
  • Villager Vio (#8758) 1 Sep 2022, 5:27 am
    1. Awesome set!
    2. Very shocked about both events going through, but I worry about how it'll impact the Vaer event... good luck I guess. I hope in the future event timings can get back on track and we finally have a summer event during summer again. I really, really hope these are on time and not delayed (as events and large updates seem to be). I wish we had a solid date for the summer event starting, otherwise it'll start Sept. 25th and last well into October.
    3. I have no horse in this race, but PLEASE make the raffle monthly and transparent about which maker will come out of it. This is so good, but I worry the raffles will only be active around official events.
    4. Good luck hiring mods!
  • Villager LotusMoon (#9931) 1 Sep 2022, 5:33 am
    This set is so unique!! It's not my style, but I love it nonetheless, very creative!!

    I am a little bummed to hear about the events. I hope staff isn't getting burnt out, and that someday we can get back on track for events. It always feels like we're so behind with the summer event.

    Cannot wait for the raffles! Thank you for giving us an update on that!
