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.

Autumn Premium Shop Test & Other News!

Happy Autumn, Dappervolk!
As our last order of business during beta, we are releasing our
Monthly Turnip Chance Machine for testing and feedback!

Alongside the new shop, a new mini-town called Peddler's Port has appeared. This location is where our new NPC shop will reside and will become home to various other merchants in the future - including NPCs that will be selling monthly potato items, class-specific items, and more!

Visit the World Map and select the Peddler's Port icon to visit this new location.
Additionally, it will not cost you any town hops to visit this area.
You may also return to 
the town that you originally hopped from for free!

Because this update involves adding a new town to the site, we
will need to go offline for maintenance for a short period of time
to implement the new content.

  • In the spirit of autumn, all of the test items that we're using are an autumn-y witch/warlock theme!
  • These items will be repurposed into seasonally obtainable items during official launch, so everyone will have a chance to obtain them again in the future.
  • Bonus Prizes: For every 10 spins in this shop, the shopkeeper will reward you with a free bonus item of your choice from that month's shop stock! This should help reward collectors and give players a bit of control over the unpredictable nature of the turnip chance machine.
  • When the site officially launches, the turnip chance machine's stock will renew each month, with the previous months' items permanently retiring. This type of retiring system will only apply to items that are "limited" rarity.

We'd love to hear your thoughts on the balance of this new feature!

  • Dappervolk's cash-based currency is the Turnip, which is displayed next to your potato count on the top bar - not to be confused with the item called Plump Turnip.
  • Turnip currency is not transferable between users, however items obtained using Turnips can be traded and sold freely.
  • There will be 2 main ways to obtain Turnip currency on Dappervolk: Purchasing it through the site for real-world currency, and participating in in-game activities that will give out small amounts of it over time.
  • You will be able to purchase Turnips starting in Official Launch, where we estimate that 100 Turnips will cost roughly $1 CAD.
  • We also intend to launch with free ways to earn Turnips, such as through daily login bonuses, opt-in ad viewing, and NPC affection milestones!

BETA-EXCLUSIVE PET

All users who registered and verified their account during beta will receive a Prismatic Bell item during official launch, which will hatch into a Prismatic Pup! Like the Celestial Pup that alpha testers were rewarded, this pet is a beta-exclusive quaint that will be retired permanently.

BETA TESTER ACHIEVEMENT

All verified beta accounts will also receive an exclusive beta tester achievement to display on their forum posts! The achievement icon isn't ready for release yet, but it will be unveiled in a future announcement.

As a note: verified means that your account's email must be verified in order to qualify.

After the beta testing period ends on October 25th, 2018, Dappervolk will be going into a period of Closed Development to focus on reviewing tester feedback, updating/revamping existing features, and continuing development on new features to prepare for official launch.

In the last few days of beta, we'll be posting an important news post with more information on what our upcoming development plans are, as well as some rough estimates for official launch.

Stay tuned!

    I'm excited to try it out and see how the many different gatchas planned will work in practice! I'm never a huge fan of permanently retiring items, but it seems to be a necessary evil with similar sites to encourage participation and also cause some funds to come in.

    wooo! :D so exciting!

    Good to hear that the turnip shop has a feature to balance out the randomness a bit. Also good to hear that it doesn't take a town hop since I've used mine up for the day already.

    unf not fond of that permanently retired after a month, as a collector with no disposable income It feels like a gateway to bad inflation
  • Villager Nightblade (#18360) 14 Oct 2018, 5:40 pm
    Oh my goodness
    THOSE ITEMS ARE BEAUTIFUL I cannot wait :O (I have 410 turnips from the spring event and can't wait to test it)
