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.

Trout's Spring Festivities!

Hello, Beta testers!
Thanks to our many Kickstarter backers, a stretch goal was unlocked
that gave us the resources to debut our event system during Beta. As
such, we are happy to announce that this feature is ready for testing!

turnip.gif EVENT DETAILS turnip.gif
We are excited to finally introduce you to our first major test event, Trout's Spring Festivities - a cooperative sitewide event that will run for about 3 weeks, which features some lovely seasonal prizes, as well as a few carry-over prizes! Yes, that means that some prizes will carry over with your account to official launch, as was promised in our Kickstarter stretch goal. The event's objectives, duration, and prizes will be detailed below, so be sure to read over it before you head over to the event hub page to begin playing and testing this new feature!

turnip.gif OBJECTIVES & DURATION turnip.gif
This event requires the community to work together to earn points toward a cumulative goal. The site's progress toward this goal will be displayed through the event progress bar, indicating how close we are to reaching the event total needed to successfully complete the event. The community will have a set amount of time to reach this goal, which is shown below and on the event page itself.

If the community can successfully earn enough points before the end date, everyone will receive the prizes that they qualify for on the event page! However, if the community fails to complete the objective in the available time, players will receive consolation prizes for their participation. In the future, we would like to also have the successes or failures of these cooperative events result in different impacts on the world and lore of Dappervolk!

The seasonal nature of this event means that a majority of the event's rewards will only be obtainable through participation in this yearly event! The event's main rewards are distributed through a tiers system, where players must reach the indicated points threshold to qualify for the next higher prize tier. Additionally, a high score board will display your score placement amongst other players, as a special grand prize will be awarded to those within the top 25% of scores earned during the event!

Prizes include an event trophy and a new spring themed clothing set, which features a brand new class of wearable clothing that was unlocked via stretch goal by our Kickstarter backers - animated items!

This set contains one animated wearable as a rare, special reward
for those who achieve the top 25% of most points earned.

Which Prizes Carry Over to Official Launch?
All players that earn an event trophy from this event will get to keep their trophy as a thank you for helping to test run our first major event in beta! Additionally, grand prize winners that earned themselves the elusive animated item will get to keep that reward as well.

    Oooh, exciting :D It's be cool if on the score board there was an indication of how many participants there are in total, so that you can estimate how close you are to the exclusive prize. Knowing my rank doesn't help much if I don't know how many ranks there even are. The items definitely look super cute!

    It's nice to have something going on, but I never liked the idea of ranking events that involve unique rewards (as in you can't obtain it in any other way, so it's outright decided that the majority of players won't get it). I should manage, but this sort of thing tends to create stress and ill feelings, so I still don't feel so well about it. ^^;

    I also just noticed that the staff can participate as well. Seeing how there is a bit of competition going on, with the top performing players getting extra prizes, I think it is unfair that the staff is able to participate, and actually win those prizes instead of a regular player.. I understand it if it is for beta testing purposes, but since the prizes do carry over to launch, I hope the staff will consider forfeiting their places in the top 25% and after launch don't compete in site events.

    the items are nice the event overall, another grindfest
  • Villager Hideri (#5265) 10 Aug 2018, 5:02 am
    Those new items look insanely awesome
    I hope I can get my hands on one of them

    This is super awesome! Unfortunately I probably won't have an opportunity to make it to the top 25% because of school, but I'll definitely try!

    I'm excited! :)

    This looks interesting! I agree with Cynicallia that these short timers are going to be hell. I think I'd rather see a daily cap, like with the side errands, than this. I would love to invest time, but if I only can do a few seconds sporadically, it gets really hard with real life, jobs, sleep, social life, etc.

    It seems that the rankings are listed in order by #. Interesting
  • Villager Katsuokai (#1308) 10 Aug 2018, 12:21 am
    I'm going to get started right away, and the prizes look awesome. ;D

    pretty cool!
  • Villager Nwyfre (#59) 10 Aug 2018, 12:14 am
    Yaasss those items look so nice ;w; heartred.gif heartyellow.gif
  • Villager Cynicallia (#8168) 10 Aug 2018, 12:09 am
    Interesting so far. The short timers are going to be a killer, though. I just can't commit to hardcore grinding, but I'll do my best.
