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!

    OH NO I NEED THESE
  • Villager brooke (#32117) 1 Oct 2020, 5:18 pm
    thank you devs! this theme caught me by surprise, i think that is a bit of the fun. so cute and will work into my aesthetic well, but i would be equally happy to see upcoming themes more masculine. don’t get me started on housing bc i’ll get too excited.
  • Villager Poppy (#221) 1 Oct 2020, 6:03 pm
    A date for when guilds come out would be nice. Or some info on why the communication has been such crapola.
  • Villager Mariyan (#12672) 1 Oct 2020, 7:01 pm
    These are super cute!! I'm glad we got these monthly items, even if they are not very autumn-y!
  • Villager Lumity (#39859) 1 Oct 2020, 7:37 pm
    oh my god I need all of the monthlies
  • Villager stellamalke (#14581) 1 Oct 2020, 8:20 pm
    I absolutely *adore* this month's items. Hard agree that something fall-themed for Halloween would have been a blast, but you won't catch me complaining for even a second about this set. I LOVE.
  • Villager Slasherbeazt (#48217) 1 Oct 2020, 9:52 pm
    I was exited for this, then it dropped and welp. It's ok, I guess. Expected something more spooky.
  • Villager Sorceress (#17451) 1 Oct 2020, 11:52 pm
    Absolutely beautiful artwork, as always. Very happy to see a Box item returning! Also, it's great to get all the Pai pieces at a small discount. Thank you!
  • Villager Fielkun (#3695) 2 Oct 2020, 12:57 am
    Wow. Love the new monthly items. Thanks for updates!
  • Villager Maeva (#36503) 2 Oct 2020, 4:51 am
    Don't be afraid to say "we didn't finished it yet" - just show the progress! Dates would be good, but I understand why it's not the best option. Frequent little updates are probably more suitable without setting a hard deadline, to not stress out the staff and crunch the updates at a fire rate of a grakata. Just please speak with the community - game seems... a bit stiff in-between updates. I know developing a pet site isn't easy - but I have so much hope, and I absolutely wish you the best!
    As for now... Roadmaps for roadmaps, very bioware-style :D

    I love the work ya'll have done, thank you for being in existence staff !<3

    Oh gods, my eyes. It's autumn, it's October, why are we being subjected to this pastel hell? believe me, I can get behind pink--pastel hell is one of my Animal Crossing aesthetics. but why can't we enjoy some sweaters and crunchy leaves? like...please, for the love of the universe and everything in it, give us wearable items. this is a hot mess. the only salvageable item is the plush unicorn, and it won't go with any out of my outfits. we need items that we can mix-and-match, not items that only work if you have the full set. and I thought the Leviathan stuff was bad... at least the banner art for Leviathan looked good.
  • Villager Weisschen (#22393) 2 Oct 2020, 8:05 pm
    this is more my taste yeah. xD
    especially the cute lil pony.
    already bought some items.
  • Villager BlackRose (#9895) 2 Oct 2020, 9:34 pm
    I'm not a very big fan of pink, especially not when it's just mostly pink. BUT, this is a pretty nice set. Not something I will ever buy, even if I got it free I'd never wear it. BUT (again) I was really hoping for, even if not a Halloween-y set (that would have been my preference though) a fall (oranges, yellows, browns, reds, etc. leaves, sweaters, socks, etc.) set so I'm let down again on these monthly sets. :(

    I'm hoping maybe that fall set was saved for next month though. I'll honestly be really upset to have received nothing even remotely fall-related though coming from a site I want to be on my favorites. So please, please, please have something saved for us.


    I would also love for some more communication. That radio silence for basically the whole of last month was just awful. I'm tired of all this "soon" stuff too, it's making that word feel meaningless. I know timeframes are hard to put with things being tested/still being worked on, but please just try a little more specific wording than "soon".

    On a happier note, I'm so excited to finally hear about housing! (would have thought that was something that was to be worked on way more during the 2-year span of this site not being open but well...) I'm looking forward to seeing stuff on that. ^-^ Thanks for the changes that have been done so far to the whole of this site, as well as the continued work on features and fixes.
