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 November!

Hello everyone! Welcome to November, we hope you're staying cozy and warm!

Our 29th month of limited shops has arrived:
November's theme is the Porcelain Oracle!

The swirl of the cosmos hovers above an unseeing eye, for it is
looking inwards and far into the unknowable depths. What fated
portents ground your passage?

TEAM EVENT UPDATE
We're currently working hard on finalizing the start time for the upcoming team event. A news post with details will come out in the next few days and the start date will be in mid November. In the meantime, here are some progress updates and a sneak peek!

Art Assets • We're about 70% finished with all the assets required for the event.
Coding • We're at the final stages of testing for the completed event code and are working on ironing out any bugs we find.
Writing • We're at the proofreading and inputting stage of quest writing.

SNEAK PEEK
A strange energy flows through the forest, are you a friend or foe?

PIPELINE UPDATE
After working through October, we're still catching up on certain parts of the pipeline after our delays in the previous month, this is why some priorities are either still on the list or had to be pushed back despite our initial goals. We're working hard to catch up and get on top of our plans as soon as we can!
  • Besides the event work we're doing, we're looking forward to getting back on track with town balancing, more QoL and bug fixes, new features, and various other updates.
  • October's Custom batch will arrive this week, event work as well as other asset work took precedence last month. Thank you for understanding!
  • The Roadmap and post-beta Changelog threads are nearing completion, we really wanted to release them in October but our workload didn't allow for that to happen. Thank you for your patience as we get this long awaited item ready!
  • The Thalies Event is still planned to go ahead after our upcoming event is over, as writing and work for it was already underway. It will simply not occur on its deity month this year, but we wanted to get the questline released regardless!

STAFF RECRUITMENT PLANS
We're working on a recruitment post to bolster our volunteer staff team. We're hoping to recruit both moderators and community managers in order to raise staff presence on the site and help us manage everything more efficiently. While moderators will be responsible for enforcing rules and helping with site moderation - community managers will be helping us by planning mini-events, welcoming new users, interacting with the community, and collecting feedback.

CUSTOM MAKER GIVEAWAY PLANS
As we previously mentioned, as the queue for custom makers dwindles, we'd like to introduce some other ways of obtaining a maker. We'd like to host some giveaway raffle threads with simple prompts and randomly generate winners. In order to not have the only prize be a custom maker, we'll also be introducing some new items to be obtained as participation and runner up rewards. We're looking forward to it!

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

    o boy, I've been busy in October and haven't had time to recover from last month's monthlies. I want *eight* items from Pai and I am too broke. Oof. That's a sign of a good set, though. I love so many of these items.
  • Villager Mirutanku (#2802) 1 Nov 2022, 10:06 am
    this set is gorgeous! just wanted to spread some positivity xx
  • Villager Hippie (#24494) 1 Nov 2022, 11:29 am
    a lot of criticism in comments here but I think you guys are doing well and moving the site in the right direction :)

    woah this set is so pretty!! :0 I also appreciate that there's a light and a dark skin with the cool markings, more sets should do that :D

    great to hear all these updates! would love to hear an update for all of us who could not complete our october ad theater streaks thanks to the panasonic ad freezing progress.

    Why do most
  • Villager Narshe (#4941) 2 Nov 2022, 3:01 pm
    Oops I posted too soon but I meant to put: Why do monthly sets look so dang clunky and cluttered all the time? The pants look again so bulky and unappealing. Bummer.
  • Villager scrub (#20092) 3 Nov 2022, 9:07 am
    The new set is neat! I can always count on DV to have such unique themes.
  • Villager Gravy (#6332) 4 Nov 2022, 10:42 am
