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.

Upcoming Winter Festivities!

Hello everyone! Our very first Winter Festivities officially begin on...
MARCH 4TH, 2021 AT 3PM DVT!
The event will be active for 2 weeks, ending on March 18th, 2021
Any extensions/adjustments will be announced as the event progresses.

Here is a quick overview of what the event will include...

The Present Tree with Agnes
An event page with a gift exchange tree, tasks to help wrap presents, and additional prizes for donation milestones!

Winter Event Questline
There will be a series of quests which include a seasonal daily quest that take you through February's deity lore!

Earning Event Currency
Event currency will be earned through the various event features, quests, and threads as well as through site mechanics! Details on this will come with the main event news post update when it begins.

Agnes' Seasonal Winter Shop
A seasonal event shop that accepts event currency items will open 3 days after the start of the event. The 3-day delay is to give staff some time to gauge player activity and how much currency is generated in this new event type - in this way, we can better balance the event shop pricing for everyone! The shop will remain open for a few extra days after the end of the event as well to allow time for purchases.

Winter Festivities Contest Threads
We'll be hosting a few small contest threads including a mini Creativity Prompt thread, Avatar Dress-up contest, and Present Bauble Decoration!

We were originally planning for the event to begin within February, but due to unforeseen delays, it will now begin in the beginning of March. Thank you for your patience as we iron out our seasonal features during the first year of the game.

We're excited to bring you both a full event feature that's completely new as well as additional activities and event threads! We'll be keeping up closely with feedback and taking note of adjustments and improvements to make throughout the event. At the end of the event, we'll be posting a conclusions news post which will include future event adjustment plans for this event type as well as our plans for future events down the line.

MARCH MONTHLY UPDATE
We will be trying something a bit different for March's limited monthly items. We've been working on a smaller limited clothing set as well as some new seasonal and semi-permanent content such as recipes, pets, and new ways to obtain them. We're hoping to make the monthly updates more fun in this way as well as looking for ways to lighten our artist's work load in order to work on more upcoming things! More details on this will come with the arrival of the new month.

In the meantime, the Butterfly Mystic items in the monthly shops will remain until the end of February!

    EEE thank you staff! I am very excited about the winter event. Also for the new things you're trying out with the monthly items and relieving the artist's work load :D

    I have to agree with Skeith. Because the prices are unknown to us players and the amount of currency you can earn per day is limited, we try to make the most of the first few days, to avoid not having enough to buy stuff we want down the line. Plus there's also the grind that will wear people down over the course of the event that'll cause activity to dwindle.

    a little concerned about how short the event is (though i know it's due to trying to fit it in before winter is over i guess) given all it seems like it's going to contain, i hope it's balanced nicely!

    The winter event sounds fun and balanced so far, but I'm not fond of the idea of limited sets getting smaller :/ I was rather happy when the sets became 8 pieces! leaves more room for error imo. We've had some where a few items were duds and the extra pieces gives you the more of a chance to have good pieces to cancel out the lame ones. Skins, eyes, and backgrounds seem to be more the norm and I love it! but that doesn't leave much for other cool items having those if we have those so the likelihood we get those is smaller.

    Maybe it'll be fine but makes me concerned to think about, especially if we're losing out on cool clothing items to have a semi-permanent or seasonal pet. I know lots of people are big on pets, but I play DV almost exclusively for cool clothing items to dress up my avatar. Pets on the other hand are just another chore.

    Not to say pets aren't popular, I just don't like them much myself. Much rather have more cute clothing sets. It seems like it would more of a hassle to make a monthly pet than a few extra clothing pieces. It makes me really leery of how many clothing pieces it will cut out. I don't want the artists to be overworked, so that makes me feel a bit conflicted. A good compromise could be smaller monthly sets, but with an additional recolored piece from that or an older set, with maybe occasional small changes? (moth coat or wings but instead they're lunar moth colored, Eclipsed seraph pauldrons but they're silver and red, etc.)
