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 October!

Hello everyone! We hope you've been doing well and staying healthy. We're back with a new update for October 2020 to start off the autumn season in full swing!

Our fourth month of limited shops has arrived:
October's theme is the Circus Unicorn!

Obtained from an elusive ever changing place.
These items twinkle with the mischief of their makers, echoes
of laughter and discordant music sound faintly in the distance.

What are Monthly Shops?
  • Every month, Pai and Oran from Peddler's Port will have different sets of 8 items in their shops that will retire at the end of the month to be replaced by new stock.
  • These items are obtained from far away lands and follow the theme of the land they visited each month.
  • From this month onwards, the number of monthly items has slightly increased, both Oran and Pai now have 2 extra items compared to previous months!
  • All retired items from Monthly Shops will eventually be able to be obtained very rarely from Grandma Agnes later on.

How can I get to Peddler's Port?
Peddler's Port is a seaside location that you can unlock by going through the main storyline in Louise Hill. Once unlocked, you can visit Peddler's Port any time without using up a town hop!

Pai's Shop of Wonders
Pai will host these 8 items in their infinite stock shop this month for 200 turnips each. If you spend 2000 turnips, you will be able to choose a free item of your choice! Free item claims will expire 3 months after obtaining them.

Agnes' Perpetual Shop
Agnes' shop is back with a chest that contains a set of Pai's 8 shop items for 1500 Turnips, ideal for collectors who want a full set at a small discount.

What are Turnips?
Turnips are the untradeable premium currency of Dappervolk. You can purchase them with real life currency here, as well as obtain them occasionally through gameplay.

Oran's Emporium
Oran's shop will be stocked with these 8 items for 9,000 potatoes per spin!

These monthly shops will run until October 31st, after which they will be removed to house November's monthly items!

FIXES & UPDATES
  • The character creation lost clothing bug has been fixed! This means that all newbies joining after this point will no longer lose their pants/shoes/shirt. Since newbie items are easy to obtain, we've sent a 200 potato reimbursement to everyone who has created a character since launch. All newbie items can be purchased for this amount at Nico's Atelier. Animal class users were not affected by this bug and therefore did not receive reimbursement!
  • If your account was registered with the wrong birth date and you haven't yet, please send in a Ticket via the Ticket Desk so we can assist you in getting it changed! All affected users who have already received NPC birthday letters this year can use/claim the rewards from them, as it currently isn't feasible to reverse the distribution of all letters and rewards for everyone waiting on a birth date fix. If you've already sent in a ticket, we have it in our list and will be getting to it soon!
  • Users who completed Visindy's Pursuits have received a reimbursement of Visindy's Mirage Stalagmites due to a bug with the quest, where some players did not receive this reward for completing the quest.
  • Mini game Personal Bests score board has been fixed to no longer wipe scores, as originally intended!
  • Animated Background items can now be saved correctly as png files using the "Save PNG" function in the wardrobe. Previously, the layering was incorrect for this item type.
  • Pet item fetch quests should now only ask for common and non account bound items.
  • Banned users can no longer receive item/currency transfers.
  • Some minor pagination layout fixes have been applied through the site.
  • Charming natured pets will now correctly respond to the gift of a Feather Quill. The item was incorrectly causing a liked response, and is now a neutral gift.

To keep up to date with more of our smaller fixes and updates, feel free to subscribe to our Official Changelog!

WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON

We've been hard at work behind the scenes preparing multiple larger features as well as juggling various quality of life and bug fixes. Here's a look at what we're currently working on!

Guilds
Our Guild Creation preparation and bug testing was unfortunately delayed for a couple of weeks following the Summer Festivities due to server outages taking priority as well as other technical considerations in relation to other updates and fixes. We're now back on track and have entered our last phase of testing! We'll be ready to launch very soon if testing goes smoothly.

Custom Creator Queue
The Custom queue will officially be opening shortly after Guilds are fully launched, we're working on some additional backend considerations for this system as well as streamlining it more before launch. We'll also be taking into consideration ways to allow Kickstarter Custom Tier backers to indicate so in their request in order to give some priority to those that have been waiting since the Kickstarter.

Additional Adventuring Optimization
Our Adventuring developer is working on revamping the back-end image processing part of Adventuring in order to have it run more smoothly. This will also help to streamline our future Housing feature!

Housing
We've begun setting up and preparing our framework for Housing and refining our designs for it. We're excited to get more into it and give you more details and teasers as time goes on!

Theater
We're preparing an ad theater in which you can watch some advertisements each day in order to slowly accumulate some turnips as well as other perks in the future. This will give users another way to accumulate turnips for free as well as support site development with an additional stable source of revenue. More info on this feature as we work on it further!

Louise Hill Adventuring Riddle Contest
The Louise Hill Adventuring Riddle Contest is currently still being judged, this is an update for folks who are waiting on results. We'll be sure to inform everyone once the winning riddles are selected!

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

    So cutesy! Not my thing but I know lots will love! There are a few Items I want form the set though.
    Loving all the new features your working on! I'm loving this site! Thanks for your work!
  • Villager VEE (#675) 1 Oct 2020, 5:08 am
    the sets are cute and i definitely dig the theme but 8 items each just seems like so much.

    id rather yall work on making the site better and finishing features that were supposed to have already been finished than adding MORE monthly artwork to the queue.

    who asked for 16 monthly items?

    wed like other things to be prioritized, please.

    ive been wondering this for many months, like some in the comments, what actually got done in those two years post beta? cause it definitely doesnt seem like two years of work lol . im so confused.

  • Villager Lutenka (#48983) 1 Oct 2020, 5:30 am
    Meh.. i really want it :(
    Whyyy T^T
  • Villager Lutenka (#48983) 1 Oct 2020, 5:30 am
    But its beautiful!
  • Villager Cattrin (#48703) 1 Oct 2020, 5:39 am
    I have a fear of clowns, but I think that's the point given the month lol. At least it's mostly cute and only a little creepy!

    Will be fun to see creative ideas with the face and other clothes.

    Very excited about Homes- I hope we get to decorate! It would also be cute if it was intractable- like if our active pet would "hide" somewhere in the graphic each day and we'd get a small reward for finding them.

    radio silence for a month only to come back and present us with magical girl pennywise
  • Villager Skeith (#3063) 1 Oct 2020, 5:48 am
    i kinda wish instead of "very soon" the staff would list a target date, so that we have something to look forward to/expect. Target date meaning "We will most likely be able to release this at that day, but issues may delay it" and said delays would then be announced with a new target date.
  • Villager Kastilla (#19114) 1 Oct 2020, 5:51 am
    Lookin’ great! Evil clowns fit Halloween perfectly~
  • Villager Hiaieku (#47774) 1 Oct 2020, 6:26 am
    THIS IS SO CUTE AND I WANT IT SO BAD
  • Villager seagoat (#46133) 1 Oct 2020, 6:29 am
    The monthlies are SO cute! Thank you DV team for the updates. :)
  • Villager Narshe (#4941) 1 Oct 2020, 6:35 am
    I wish staff just addressed the lack of communication instead of trying to save face with this kind of big announcement with everything bunched into it. A lot of these updates could have been addressed during September when people were wondering why it was so quiet. I feel now that we are not going to get another announcement for the rest of the month, nor any solid addressing to why staff just doesn't respond to user concerns.
  • Villager Narshe (#4941) 1 Oct 2020, 6:39 am
    So basically there is no updates to show for Guilds or Custom Creations or Housing. That's not very promising at all.
