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!

    Also, the house feature gets me excited ayyyy

    ""We'll be ready to launch very soon if testing goes smoothly." I feel like we're only ever going to hear "very soon" at this rate.

    I really wish you guys would address the issues with your lack of communication. :/ I don't think it's a bad thing that things need to be fixed more before they can come out, but why couldn't you tell us this a month earlier? It feels really bad that you're not addressing this stuff."

    Caribou put it fantastically. It feels like everything is constantly "soon!". Soon means absolutely nothing now. Trust's been broken with the community; the community could really use more regular updates and transparency to repair things, in my opinion

    Pink color and circus theme are my last favorites, but this set impressed me :)
  • Villager Jill (#558) 1 Oct 2020, 8:25 am
    Another gorgeous theme!!! I LOVE the little pony.
  • Villager cishet (#44516) 1 Oct 2020, 8:28 am
    WE HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH THIS MONTHLY SET AAHHHHHH i love it so much
  • Villager Zii (#431) 1 Oct 2020, 8:37 am
    Love the little unicorn. Completely unimpressed by the lack of any sort of update whatsoever on the site features everyone has been looking forward to. Telling us to wait indefinitely, forever, doesn't amount to anything. Still not seeing what, exactly, happened between Beta and Launch, as others have pointed out (other than more items being made, I suppose).
  • Villager chien_chien (#21482) 1 Oct 2020, 8:44 am
    I think i will tell my 2 cents too about updates other than monthly items...

    I feel like you DV team should make updates about people's questions and be more transparent in general.
    Queues are super long, Tickets are long to answer to, etc. We want to see some previews of future things that's gonna happen and stay in the DV boat !!
    So much less people online D=
  • Villager Astraleaf (#17183) 1 Oct 2020, 8:56 am
    Sooooooo pink, lol! Thank you for listening to feedback regarding long & short hair being distributed between the two shops, not just the turnip shop.
  • Villager santos (#45939) 1 Oct 2020, 9:02 am
    this is so prettyy :( wish i had turnips, i love circus/clown stuff and this is right up my alley ;-;
  • Villager HELP (#614) 1 Oct 2020, 9:04 am
    HOUSING, HOUSING, HOUSING! Fantastic job on this months set. By far my favorite to be released. Thank you guys for the chunky announcement. I would prefer occasional massive announcements over tiny ones anyday. I appreciate the update, I know you're hard at work and are trying to push things out as efficiently as possible. You're the bomb!
  • Villager jotun (#40203) 1 Oct 2020, 9:19 am
    i am so grateful for clowns tysm for this item set!!
  • Villager Qhersek (#19531) 1 Oct 2020, 9:31 am
    I really wish not (almost) all apparel would look so (traditionally) feminine. And if the head shape could be changed, without a mask the avatar will be feminine no matter what. This pink fluffy apparel is just...no. Shame, I would actually like the tail if it wasn't so bright.
