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 all is well and peaceful tidings are afoot!

September's theme is the Scaled Storyteller!

Come one come all, to the Great Show - the joyous tragedy, the
lamenting love story. A great many echoes of years past will
sound, extolling the virtues of ancient lives.

twitch.tv/dappervolk


A status post with a link to the stream will be posted when it begins!
We'll be working on things for upcoming content updates as well as drawing assets to use in future Dappervolk merch!

KELBI EVENT STATUS
The Kelbi event announcement is coming within the next few days, stay tuned!

STAFF HIRING STATUS
We're planning to send out email responses to promising applicants within the next week or two in order to begin the onboarding process. Thank you for your patience!

AVIAR COVE BALANCING UPDATE
The planned Aviar Cove balancing update will come with an additional sizeable potato sink content drop as well to help offset inflation! Here is our current progress on it:
Art Assets: 50%
Quest Adjustments: 25%
Inputting/Testing: 10%


FUTURE CONTENT/EVENT PLANS
We've taken a look at our current set of goals and after a good deal of discussion, here are our plans in regards to upcoming events and content drops!

For the next few months, we're going to focus more on upcoming permanent content updates such as balancing updates, potato sinks, and new permanent content in order to bring the base game to the state that we want it to be.

We realized that over time, large scale events had become more and more elaborate as our ambition for the creative side of things grew, thus requiring more assets, writing, and overall time spent preparing each event. While it was a great deal of fun and we're proud of our community and progress, we've realized that the time spent preparing events consumes too much of our work schedule and we want to rework how we approach future events.

The remaining deity events will still happen at some point, but first we're going to spend some efforts to update the game with more permanent content. We'd also eventually like to hold some more large scale events that introduce new permanent content like we did with the Witches' War previously. Thanks for reading our thoughts and decisions on this aspect of Dappervolk's development!

TRADES MARKET UPDATES
We're now working on designing the Trades Market revamp, Pet Accessory market, and Customs market with focus on player feedback and ease of use. We're working on all three at the same time since all three will use a similar trades market system.

This will take some time to launch but we think it will improve the game experience greatly as well as make it much easier for users to get into things like pet accessories and customs trading. The trades market revamp will allow for much easier trade listing as well as system adjustments that fit our community's needs better.

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

    The new set is gorgeous! I'm also really intrigued and excited to hear about the new development plans with permanent content and potato sinks, and especially the trade/accessory/custom market stuff!! Really looking forward to everything!

    aaaah One of my favorite color schemes!! Love the intricate headdress and skin decor.
  • Villager Jenova (#23358) 1 Sep 2023, 12:24 am
    Ahh, kinda wish the items themselves were as vibrant as the header photo. :'D Glad to hear that more permanent content will be introduced, in some ways the game still feels unfinished, even a bit unpolished, so this is promising. Thanks for the update!
  • Villager Myrrhmaid (#48226) 1 Sep 2023, 12:24 am
    The momthly set is so beautiful and interesting!! I love the headdress, fans, and feathery sleeves especially.
    The autumn pet looks amazing too! As usual I will be torn between hatching multiples and hoarding the pretty totems, lol!

    Holy Pann thank you so much for rebalancing your work time; we desperately need to focus the website itself over seasonal events and I'm overjoyed with this decision. I love the events dearly, but other things definitely need attention <3
