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 healthy and vibing!

Our 41st month of limited shops has arrived:
November's theme is the Incandescent Wyvern!

Against the midnight sky, a great flame burns brightly.
An arid wind carries brightly lit flecks of the great flame
far and wide, amid cries of uncanny mimicry.

  • Villager Clamie_Ty (#51057) 1 Nov 2023, 2:54 am
    Love the new set design, and happy to see a qol update is coming up! Extra happy that oran has so many good items in it this time, nature is healing and the balance is being slowly restored :'>> Ps. I think the high and low preview image items were accidentally swapped...?

    I LOVE THIS MONTHLY. DRAGON!!! also surprised (in a good way) at how oran's got quite a few goodies too, not just pai!
  • Villager laurabie (#24791) 1 Nov 2023, 4:26 am
    the new monthlys look amazing, im also all for merch if that means more money for the staff to spend on improving the site but make sure its profitable.
    It would be sad that the art team would spend all this hard work on a project that wont make the kickstarter goal or make a profit afterwards.
  • Villager CloverMoon (#59315) 1 Nov 2023, 8:12 am
    having pins for dappervolk has been my most wanted dream merch wise, and im so excited about it, i cant breathe ommggg!!!
  • Villager Beluga (#19885) 1 Nov 2023, 9:06 am
    Kickstarter for the pins is a good idea. Instead of going straight to production and sales.

    The set is stunning and it’s nice to see some more reds/oranges added!

    Still dying for Vaers and trading post updates!

    Glad to see this site keeps trying to expand its operations. Don’t forget how important permanent content is!
  • Villager Totalanimefan (#23751) 1 Nov 2023, 9:19 am
    I love Enamel pins. I will be scoping up that set if/when it releases.

    The new monthlies are very beautiful! Nice colors.

    What I’m most excited about is the new town rebalancing! They make the site so much better and I always love the new items and recolors. :)
  • Villager Yvossa (#70225) 1 Nov 2023, 10:36 am
    New set looks great! 10/10! <3

    I enjoy enamel pins and I love the idea, so long as the energy/resources for it doesn't take away from the energy/resources for site updates. My one year anniversary on DV is only just coming up, but looking at players who have been here longer, there seems to be a frustration regarding delays. I'm a developer myself though so I do get how issues with bugs, packages, builds, etc. can get in the way of pushing a successful update, especially if the developer team is small.

    lorekeeper (#27153) HAVE YOU SEEN THIS!!!!
  • Villager Zelda (#28) 1 Nov 2023, 1:47 pm
    I can say, personally, I would not be interested in pins. Happy to see we will be seeing custom maker rates, though!
  • Villager DrMcNuggetu (#55934) 1 Nov 2023, 3:27 pm
    damn! this shit is fire! put it out!

    cool merch kickstarter goals, dv


    will the first kickstarter promises/goals ever be fulfilled? asking for a friend who spent money on the first kickstarter.

    it's me. I spent money on the first kickstarter. and I still don't see housing or guild battles, onsite as a functional feature. just wondering if I'd be funding a pipe dream of a scam artist or actually receive the promised product of said kickstarter. I've been burned by dv/anji before in a similar funding scam, can't catch me making the same mistake without the real, actual recompense of fulfillment my original dollars went to. :upside down smiley face that is not amused:
  • Villager kabob (#34972) 1 Nov 2023, 7:08 pm
    personally i wouldnt make physical merch rn. they’re cute, yeah, but the site is,,, for lack of better words “lacking” when it comes to the promised stuff (i.e. housing, other KS stuff i forgot lol)
  • Villager Aranea (#6971) 1 Nov 2023, 11:39 pm
    I'm loving the bright colors of this set! the wings and braids stand out to me particularly, they feel unique :> as for the merch, it's a nice idea! I can't help but feel a little disappointed though, perhaps because the site itself still feels unfinished. I'd be a little more open to the idea if the funds are going towards the site, but I'm still very hesitant to spend money on something that's not directly related to the site at this point in time,, that being said I'm 99% sure I still wouldn't spend money on, say, a Real Money Only support bundle with a pet and clothes like I have in the past... so I recognize that I'm not totally the target audience here. I would definitely consider selling prints, especially something like a postcard set featuring the art from the monthly sets! they have some of my favorite site art <3 thanks for being open to feedback!
