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 Summer Festivities!

Hello everyone! Our upcoming Summer Festivities
event is officially set to begin on...


August 20th, 2020 @ 11:59:59pm DVT

Lilia and Fantasia are planning a summer occasion but are having trouble with the preparations. To help them reign in the end of the summer season, the community will need to lend them a hand to ensure that the festivities are a success!

The event will be active for 2 weeks, ending on September 5th!

Some Quick Event Details:
  • This event type is a seasonally occuring cooperative event! The community will come together to complete various tasks to fill up a sitewide progress bar in order to successfully help out Lilia and Fantasia with their event.
  • This will be our first iteration of this type of event since beta testing, after having reworked some of its features according to player feedback!
  • To earn event points, there will be a collection of event-related tasks that will ask you to perform different activities around the site. These tasks can be completed for points multiple times per day on a set time interval.
  • Your personal point gain will determine the prize tier that you earn and the rewards you will receive at the end of the event! Each tier and the points required to achieve it will be revealed at the start of the event.
  • If the sitewide progress bar is filled, a new seasonal quest about the summer's festivities will be unlocked for everyone onsite! And, because this event will return every summer season, each successful completion of the event will introduce a newly unlocked quest that will expand the seasonal story and lore.
  • If the sitewide progress bar is filled up before the set end date for the event, new overtime goals and rewards will appear for the community to unlock!
  • On the flipside, if the sitewide progress bar is not able to be filled to 100% within the duration of the event, everyone will earn their tier rewards but the season's unlockable quest will not be unlocked this year.

Welcome to August!

Hello everyone! We hope you've been doing well and having fun as we kick off the start to the month of August. This update includes our new monthly shops announcement, event updates, and some pertinent progress reports!

Our second month of limited shops is finally here:
August's theme is the mysterious Rosethorn Forest!

These items were procured from the vision of a nighttime forest.
Freshly fallen leaves line the ground, soft crimson rendering your
footsteps silent. A perpetual dusk envelopes the gloom, vibrant
thorns block your path...

What are Monthly Shops?
  • Every month, Pai and Oran from Peddler's Port will have different sets of 6 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 6 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.

Oran's Emporium
Oran's shop will be stocked with these 6 items for 9,000 potatoes per spin! The spin price has been increased compared to last month, in order to adjust for inflation as more currency is generated by players and the economy begins to find its footing after just over a month since the site launched.

These monthly shops will run until August 31st, after which they will be removed to house September's monthly items!

AUGUST SUMMER EVENT

We have a big summer event planned to happen some time this month. We're aiming for a mid-August release, so we will have more information about the specifics of the event for everyone soon!

Our Adventuring Riddle Contest is also now under way!
It ends on August 30th, 2020 so get your submissions in before then!
Read our event rules and submission instructions here.

PROGRESS UPDATES
Here are some updates on a few things we're working on behind the scenes!

Custom Maker Submission Queue
We are aiming to open the Custom Maker Submission page some time in August! An update will be released at least a few days prior to its release, in order to give everyone time to prepare their submissions. We have also compiled some basic information about the system below, for anyone that is interested:
  • Your place in the queue will be displayed after submitting your request.
  • You'll be able to make edits to your request up until an artist claims it in order to begin working on it.
  • There will be a set of request rules and guidelines to follow for making custom submissions.
  • Since there is currently only one artist (for the timebeing), the queue will likely be worked on in relatively chronological fashion. However, when we eventually are able to hire more artists to the team, requests will be claimed based on what different artists are most comfortable with in order to maximize efficiency.

Guild Bug Fix Progress
This past week, we've tackled many of the most pertinent bugs related to guilds and have made good progress! We're currently extensively retesting and working on making sure nothing new broke as well as fixing the rest of the bugs. We'll continue to bring you updates on our progress and announce this month when Guild creation will become available officially!

Vaer's Reef Affection Milestone Quests
Some users who have gotten over 500 affection with NPC's from the 5th town may have noticed that the quest they've unlocked is missing from their quest page. These quests will become available soon, as we've been hard at work behind the scenes revising some of the Vaer storyline with user feedback in mind. Thank you for your patience as we make the quests available!

Trades Market Rule Breaking
There has been an unfortunate trend frequently reported to the Ticket Desk, where some users have been intentionally offering nothing/only a few potatoes on many trade lots in the Trades Market (regardless of what is being asked for), in the hopes that the other person will accidentally hit "accept" instead of "reject". We'd like to clarify that this practice is considered scamming and should be reported by users who spot it happening.

Thank you so much for playing and supporting
Dappervolk. We'll be back with more updates soon!

Louise Hill Riddle Contest!

KfPhDX.png

Hello everyone, welcome to our first Adventuring Riddle Writing Contest hosted after site launch! This time for our first town, Louise Hill. We'll be holding riddle contests for each town once in a while to bolster the riddle count in each area!

12OPQm.png
Click the button above to access the riddle form, or click here!

6zNPHR.png
  • You can write and submit as many riddles as you can come up with within the time frame of this contest.
  • Each user can enter as many times as they want, but they can only get up to 4 riddles accepted!
  • Make sure you enter your correct username and ID!
  • You must write your own riddles, no plagiarism allowed!

6OdBuV.png
  • Each riddle that we choose to use in adventuring will grant you 75 turnips on site!
  • 25 Pet Accessory Makers, 15 Premium Badges (30 Day), and 1 Premium Badge (90 day) will be raffled off to all participants.
  • We may increase the number of prizes depending on the number of entrants.
  • Each participant can only win a raffled item prize once!
  • All prizes will be sent to each winner on site at the end of the contest.

The riddle question itself can be up to a paragraph or as short as a sentence.
Maximum length is 8 lines. It can rhyme or be succinctly worded, the choice is yours.

For riddles in Louise Hill, we'll be looking for thematically fitting riddles, so riddles related to farming, temperate meadows and hills, vegetables, produce, and the NPC’s of the town, etc will have an advantage. We judge based on cleverness of subject matter and writing flow!

FAQ
How do I write a Dappervolk style riddle?
It is easiest to craft a riddle by going backwards from the answer you first decide on. Here is a link to the wiki that explains the symbolism of each virtue in more detail: https://dappervolk.fandom.com/wiki/Adventuring#Riddles

Do you have any tips on how best I can get my riddle selected?
Things that factor into our judging process are the uniqueness of the answer, how easy it is to guess (try to avoid using words that allude directly to the answer), if the riddle makes sense, and how well a riddle is written.

Can I use existing riddles found on the internet?
Plagiarism is against the rules, please write your own riddles! We cannot use creative property made by other parties on Dappervolk without permission from the actual creators. Plagiarism found on any of your riddles will cause all entries submitted by you within this contest to be disqualified.

End of July 2020 Update!

Hello everyone! We've got a new update for you on a bunch of upcoming things as we near the end of the month!

wgDFK1.png

Ever since the site launched, we've been very excited for players to finally get to experience the Guilds system that we've invested quite a bit of time into developing! However, there have been some new and unanticipated bugs discovered recently onsite that directly tie into core Guild functions, which would ultimately be game-breaking if left unchecked. Since these bugs tie into major aspects of Guild functionality, we've made the tough decision to temporarily close Guild creation until we can make sure it's in fully working order. Some of these new bugs include:
  • Quest Task Tracking Issues - Directly impacts the guild upgrade and leveling system.
  • Forum Permissions Issues - Impacts the guild forum experience.
  • Live Chat Issues - New issues with server routing have impacted the live chat functionality.
  • Misc Smaller Issues - Ie. Tooltip/mouseover glitching, 404 errors occurring after various updates since launch, etc.

The Guild system is a major undertaking with a great deal of coding intricacies, so we'd like to give our developers the time they need to make sure that we are putting our best foot forward with this feature for everyone to be able to enjoy to its fullest potential. Thank you so much for your patience, we can't wait to see all of the amazing guild communities that players will create!

TIME FRAME
We're anticipating at least a couple of weeks from now to get Guilds fixed up, but we'll be working as hard as we can to get it to you as quickly as possible. We'll be updating everyone as soon as possible with as much advance notice as we can, once we know when we can re-open Guild creation!

In the meantime, we'll be creating a Guilds subforum for our community to plan out their guilds in advance. Our dedicated moderators will be assisting in moving existing Guild threads over to this subforum for a more concentrated browsing and hang out area!

GUILDS FAQ
We're also releasing a Guilds FAQ with info that we know most of you have been interested to know. Visit the Guilds FAQ here!

9BnzWG.png
We'll be starting a new riddle contest during the coming month, where everyone in the community is invited to submit their most creative Adventuring riddles themed around our first Adventuring location: Louise Hill!
2cds5P.png
Stay tuned for the full contest details, coming soon!

All riddles that are selected will become permanent additions to Adventuring, and their authors will receive a Turnip currency prize. All entrants will have a chance to win some additional raffled prizes as well!

We are also excited to announce that we have a planned Summer Event that will take place some time in August! A news update with more details about the event will be released approximate a week before it will be set to begin.

As a bit of a sneak peak, we will be bringing back our cooperative/competitive event type from our beta testing phase, now featuring new adjustments based on player feedback and a brand new storyline in time for summer! We have a feeling you'll be seeing a few of your favorite early town NPC's in this event — we hope everyone will enjoy it when the time comes!

The Mothlike items will be retiring at the end of July 2020, to be changed over to August's theme along with our planned adjustments to Pai's shop and Premium perk additions!

9jYHLl.png

All monthly shop items will eventually be very rarely obtainable through a new feature which will be released a few months down the line.

That's all for this update!
