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! Welcome to October, we hope you're ready for the spooky season!

Our sixteenth month of limited shops has arrived:
October's theme is the Spirit Wayfarer!

A procession of lonely spirits, they traverse the night sky.
Lost among wheeling stars, until the sound of a great gong rings in the
distance, and the rattling of bones. A boisterous procession
follows its leader, clamoring freely to its destination.

What are Monthly Shops?

  • Every month, Pai and Oran from Peddler's Port will have different sets of 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. A chest containing a set of Pai's items is now also available in their shop in addition to Agnes' Shop, to allow for more freedom in purchase making. If you spend 2000 turnips, you will be able to choose a free item of your choice! Free item claims will expire 6 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. Agnes also has a Bonus Prize function in her shop. For every 2000 turnips you spend in her shop from now on, you'll be able to claim from her Bonus Prize pool, which will fluctuate and grow with time.

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 ten items this month for 9,000 potatoes per spin! Each time you spend 100k potatoes in Oran's shop, you'll be able to pick one free item from his Bonus Prize claim. Bonus Prize items may change or grow as time goes on.

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

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

AUTUMN EVENT
We're hard at work on our upcoming October Autumn Event! This event will be our official third event type and will contain the following things:
  • Brand new Gathering & Growing event type
  • New Seasonal Mini Map
  • New Seasonal NPC
  • New Seasonal Event Quests
  • Event Shop with Clothing, Items, etc
  • Forum Contest Threads

The event will begin around the middle of October, an exact start time and further details will be posted closer to the start date!

WISHING WELL SEPTEMBER STREAM
This month, the art development stream will take place on...
OCTOBER 18TH, 4PM DVT

A status post with a link to the stream will be posted when it begins!
We'll be working on a new batch of wishes from the Wishing Well thread. Hope to see you there!

BETA CHANGELOG & ROADMAP THREAD
While we're working on our Official Roadmap Thread and Beta Changelog, here's a sneak peek at a few things we'll be prioritizing in our Roadmap!

Daily Quest Rebalancing
  • Reduce clicks on daily repeatable quests by lowering the number of times you can do them per day
  • Condense quest dialogue
  • Raise individual quest rewards
  • Streamline tasks and quest setup
  • Roll-out would be town by town in between other updates

Recipes & Reward Pools
We're also planning to rebalance the way certain RNG item pools work. Currently, recipe items take up a large amount of the drop rate on several reward pools on site. We're planning to move all recipes to a dedicated NPC shop, and updating each reward pool with more desirable items. We're also working on ideas for shops and NPC's that would allow you to recycle your superfluous items for special rewards.

NICO'S ATELIER UPDATE
One of our new artist team's first projects is to work on a large Nico's update with many items that have been requested by our community. We're looking forward to releasing this update some time next month if all goes well!

As always, thank you so much for playing and supporting
Dappervolk. We'll be back with more updates soon!

    super excited to see what comes of rebalances and item pool distribution!! thank you DV staff!

    the third bullet point says “increase individual quest rewards” which means it will be balanced, i assume.
    nothing to worry about!
  • Villager Waverunner (#37708) 1 Oct 2021, 9:30 am
    The overall Daily Quest overhaul is super POG
  • Villager Kanada (#2634) 1 Oct 2021, 9:57 am
    Neat! Though I’m kind of concerned with “condense quest dialogue”. I know there’s a lot of clicking but I would hate to see shortened dialogue as a lot of my interest with this site is the fact it has a story. Condensing it would entail that it’s not going to be as long and will remove bits and pieces. Which :(
  • Villager Lucifen (#15697) 1 Oct 2021, 10:17 am
    love the set and love the sound of all these upcoming updates and fixes! :D
    my only hope is that with the daily rework i can still earn the same/similar amount of potatoes as i would currently, but it seems that thats already being worked on too by the sounds of things!
  • Villager BlackRose (#9895) 1 Oct 2021, 11:26 am
    Aw, I was really hoping for something a little more traditionally Halloween-y (color-wise at least) for this month's set, but again we get a pinky/purpley theme. :( I guess this is at least a bit better than the pink cotton candy barf we had last year as it's a bit darker, but still not the best.

    I'm really happy to hear about the quest rebalance though! It sounds like it'd help a lot. I haven't done dailies in MONTHS because it's just way too much repetitive clicking.
    I do second what Kanada has said though. I love the story that comes with quests, so if the condensing means to shorten the dialogue then I'm not going to be too happy with that. It's simple enough to just skip by the dialogue if you don't want to read it all. Please don't ruin it for those who like the more in-depth details and story and whatnot.

    AHHHH Omg I love this set so much!
  • Villager ClearBright (#4344) 1 Oct 2021, 6:49 pm
    Woah such a cool set!!
  • Villager kessaria (#4244) 2 Oct 2021, 4:52 pm
    Can’t wait for the daily quests revamp! I’ll definitely be playing more regularly once that’s implemented!
  • Villager Gaia (#528) 5 Oct 2021, 8:14 am
    It would be absolutely stellar, if you're looking into rebalancing the daily quests, to also take into account the negative route. I've said it a million times before but pretty much everything is geared towards positive affection, despite negative also giving exclusive rewards. The fact that negative options reward nothing but neg affection (no food, no taters), and there isn't always a -3 aff option, and there are zero -4 aff option, feels skewed. So please take that into account too

    Always super nice to see the website develop. Thank you for your dedication!
