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 Sharkvolk!

Due to a recent and much needed change of leadership, we are pleased to announce that Dappervolk is now undergoing renovations to become SHARKVOLK - a hardcore avatar and shark collecting site with a painterly shark art style, RPG elements, and an ever-expanding world of shark-centric quests!

Things to look forward to in Sharkvolk:

By popular demand, all of the original towns will be flooded with water and the existing townsfolk will be put to the test - do they sink, swim, or somehow find a raft in time? Meanwhile, sharks of all kinds will begin appearing throughout the world to assume their rightful place as the true residents of Sharkvolk. Stay tuned to find out what happens next, as we update all of the maps, NPCs, games, and quests in the coming months to reflect the new state of the world!

Please hard refresh your browser to begin viewing our brand new Sharkvolk site layout changes!

Coding Update

Hey everyone, just a small heads-up regarding site stability!

3-bug-reports.png

At approximately 11:00 PM Dappervolk time, our coders are going to implement an update to the site that should streamline the deployment process of the site and remove the need for users to hard refresh/wait for bug fixes to start registering on their browser. While the site is rebuilding files related to this update, you may notice that most functions onsite will become unresponsive or not work for about 2-3 minutes. This is expected, so don't be alarmed!


[Edit] The update has concluded, everything should be back to normal now.

Thank you for your patience!

As an additional note about forums, there are helpful stickies in each forum section with guidelines and rules that everyone should read before making a topic! Below are some especially useful topics you should check out:
