AEOLIN'S SHIPWRECK
A swarm of fireflies dancing in the spring night, a light mist rolling in. 
An ocean breeze carries inspiration from some place far away.

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!

FROG UPDATE STATUS
We had a slight delay on our frog undertakings, which is why the froggening will officially begin at the end of this week!

DATABASE UPDATE STATUS
Our codebase updates are progressing steadily, last month we pushed 2 different updates and worked on various fixes for bugs that appeared. We're currently working on the last two upgrades which we're testing internally. We're aiming to do the updates this month, after which we'll be very up to date and have a more secure codebase!

Note that some aspects of the upgrades may require a longer than usual maintenance to go through the whole database. We'll be keeping everyone in the loop on when/if that happens!

UPCOMING NEWS POLLS
Last month, we tried out a different bundling method for pet hatches in the monthly shops. After gathering feedback diligently, we're planning to host a poll about which options are prefered so we can keep it in mind for future monthly shops with pets.

We're also planning on a poll to ask if our community would prefer to not see forum game threads on the latest forum activity box on the front page, as well as other more lore or content related polls!

VAER REEF BALANCING UPDATE
Our artists are getting to work on assets this month for the Vaer Reef balancing update which will include all rebalancing and new content as well as the affection quests and an additional story's end quest. We'll keep everyone posted on our progress!

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

    Thank you for listening to feedback about static item previews! This is a good solution for the people who like both styles. I do wish the static previews would still be separated by which ones are Oran and which ones are Pai but I know that's a nitpick from someone who's a stickler for organization.
  • Villager Aethera (#59177) 1 May 2024, 3:43 am
    This set is actually gorgeous AAA?
  • Villager CatLoaf (#11088) 1 May 2024, 5:33 am
    Oh, YES PLEASE to this set.
  • Villager Pypurr (#61306) 1 May 2024, 6:08 am
    Oh this is my new fav…
  • Villager LunarLoner (#74921) 1 May 2024, 8:58 am
    This set is gorg! Ik where im going to spend my turnips or taters on

    And as a frog enjoyer i cannot wait for the Ribbeting

    but... isnt there supposed to a pet to go along with every monthly set? Would be nice to have an equally as gorg pet go along with it?

  • Villager SeaBanshee (#43811) 1 May 2024, 9:46 am
    Love the colors and the theme, the transparency is gorgeous !
    Happy to hear about the frog update coming, and even more about polls !! These will be really great :D

    LunarLoner (#74921) Monthly pets aren't meant to be a thing every month, there are supposed to be rare instead (as it was stated when they first happened, the explanation being that pets hike up the price and they take more time for the Monthly artist to draw compared to clothing)
    If it was an Oran pet instead of Pai the playerbase could accept it more, but since they take longer to draw, it makes more sense for them to be more expensive
    So overall a Monthy pets each month isn't sustainable for the main artist and playerbase
