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 and some merch designs.
Hope to see you there!

UPCOMING PERMA-CONTENT
Now that the Kelbi event is underway and that segment of work is complete, here are some of our upcoming permanent update plans that we're working on in succession:
  • Aviar Cove Balancing Update
  • Major Potato Sinking Swamp Content - Frog alert!
  • Vaer Reef Balancing Update
  • Pet Milestone Reward Revamps
  • Misc Item Updates (Nico's, other Peddlers, Various item reward pools that need updates, etc)
  • New Towns, NPCs, and Content to further the storyline

UPCOMING CODING/FEATURE UPDATES
Here are feature updates, new features, and other areas of major coding that we're currently working on:
  • Marketplace Revamp
  • Pet Accessory Market
  • Custom Market
  • Eventually - Block System Update, Guild Revamp, QoL Updates, etc
  • See our Roadmap for a more detailed list.

EVENTUAL EVENT PLANS
Although we're currently going to be focusing on permanent content and feature updates in order to better balance the base game, we'll eventually return with more events in various formats. In the meantime during these next few months, we're planning to still hold various contests and giveaways for those who enjoy participating!

STAFF RECRUITMENT STATUS
We're finalizing emails to be sent out as soon as we can this month to our new team members. Apologies for the delay on this, we intended to get emails out earlier but with how busy event prep was and other circumstances we felt that it would be better to wait until we can give our full attention to training the new recruits. Thank you for your patience!

MERCHANDISE PLANS
You may have noticed that we were leisurely designing some potential merch on development streams, we're currently long term planning some exciting Dappervolk themed merch and may be holding some polls in the future before committing to designs, stay tuned!

We've also gotten in contact with Makeship - a pledge-based plushie making site and are planning out a potential future campaign. If all goes well, a Turnipling plushie could exist in the future!

As always, thank you so much for playing and supporting
Dappervolk. We'll be back with more updates soon!

    This monthly set has big early kickstarter vibes! Love it!
    If there's going to be a Turnipling plush I'll be interested. I got a different plush off Makeship and everyone I shown it to absolutely loves it! I hope it's a Runty one, those are my favorites!

    does dappervolk even have a base /demand big enough to warrant merch being a viable thing.
  • Villager Zethare (#24891) 1 Oct 2023, 1:06 am
    Love the set, I really like the color and the pet looks like it's going to be adorable, with that out of the way.... OMG! yes!!! finally we get the Aviar Cove update, I hope the artist did my boy Astra and Celestine justice with whatever new items we get. I really hope we get some kind of tuxedo for Astra.
