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 February!

Hello everyone! We hope you had a cozy January. We're back with a new update for February 2021!  Our Peddler's Port adventurers come with gifts from a mystical land.

Our eighth month of limited shops has arrived:
February's theme is the Butterfly Mystic!

A mirage-like nightscape unfolds before you, shimmering lights and
glowing foliage greeting you elusively. Those who reside here see
through the veil of reality, hearing your inner most thoughts and dreams.
What will they learn?

Full Item Previews now Available!
We've set up a thread showcasing all monthly limited shop item previews here. Each month's previews will now be posted here in the beginning of the month.

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.
  • 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 stocks 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 chance shop will be stocked with these eight items for 9,000 potatoes per spin!

These monthly shops will run until February 28th, after which they will be removed to house March's monthly items!

This month, a new deity spreads her wings. Visit the Theater and click on the "CHECK REWARDS" button to see the new rewards!

WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON
Here's a look into what we're currently prioritizing, among other smaller bug and QoL fixes!

WINTER FESTIVITIES
We're working hard on coding, quest writing, art assets, and planning for the winter event to take place some time in February! As a small hint, the winter event mechanics this year revolve around the act of giving and receiving. We'll have more details for you before the event begins!

VAER REEF QUEST UPDATE
We're still working on revisions for the story quests and affection side quests in Vaer Reef, the writing priority has temporarily shifted to the winter event quests but we'll be prioritizing this again once the event quests are complete.

CUSTOM MAKER SUBMISSION
We're still finetuning the adjustments to the system for custom pets and clothing, we want to make sure the process is as smooth as possible for both users and art staff once this feature is launched. Due to the winter event currently taking precedent, we're hoping to launch submission in either February or relatively soon after that in March. Thank you very much for your patience!

ADDITIONAL MISCELLANEOUS CONTENT
We're working on adding additional content to different parts of the game for variety, this includes additional alchemy recolours for existing items, new items and recipes to various parts of the site, new pets, and lots more. The ways to obtain these items and pets will become clear once we start to push them out in the coming months.

With each new permanent clothing item update, we'll also be working on outline adjustments for existing site items to be pushed along with them.

PLANNED BALANCING & ADJUSTMENTS
In the background, we've been working on planning out some extensive adjustments to improve the game's flow and sense of reward, as well as boosting play longevity. This will consist of adjustments to multiple parts of the site such as quests, user experience/interface, content variety, and other mechanic updates.

Once our plans are ready to be announced, we'll update everyone with a roadmap of the series of updates we'll be rolling out. This is something in our priority list that may take some time as it requires very careful planning, we're looking forward to continuously improving the game!

COMMUNICATION ORGANIZATION
Recently, we made a changelog post about communication here. It covers our current policies, areas we've improved on, and areas we'd like to improve on for communication. Going forward, we'll also be taking a look at how to streamline our different channels of communication (news posts, changelogs, status posts) so that the userbase is fully informed more easily.

MAIN STORYLINE CONTINUATION
Along with everything else, we've been working on and planning the next town's content in the background. The release of a new town is still a ways off, but we'll keep you posted on its progress as we work. Since we're in our first year of Dappervolk, there are still some very important core features and gameplay updates we have to do, which is why some content updates were pushed back. Once things begin to iron out more, we'll be able to dedicate more time to content updates like this to move the storyline forward!

We'll be back with more updates soon!

    Shut up and take my money, nice outfit!

    I really hope the gameplay and reward balancing also takes into account the negative affection routes. These are very expensive to follow and not even half as rewarding as the positive affection routes. And with exclusive rewards, it's a huge pain trying to keep up the neg aff ..

    Absolutely loving this month's items. I mean, I always do, but! Woah. The several different palettes that are used and yet work so well together and how that means it branches out to work with several palette sets, this has made me very very happy! Thank you so much! Also, the roadmap looks excellent. Thank you so much for your work!
