Time to make waves at the Rameen Festival!

It's the dog days of Summer, and the temperatures are still HOT HOT HOT! Smell that ocean breeze? It's time to soak up the sun and waves in the Rameen Festival. Our annual end-of-Summer party in honor of Prime Jemmion is now in full swing, so come join the fun! It's time for a totally rad Beach Bash!

  • Grab a guitar and unleash your inner rockstar on one of the Furcadia Guitar Masters stages
  • Flop around on the always popular bouncy castle
  • Want to go for a spin? Hop aboard one of the various critters of the carousel
  • Jump on a surfboard and catch a gnarly wave
  • Build a fancy sand sculpture
  • Float on an inner tube down the lazy river to the sea
  • And so much more!

There is so much to see and do! The tiki-torches, bonfires, and lanterns scattered across the island playground mean the party rolls on all night long.

Pixels' Underwater World

There will be a series of parrots around the dream, that spout seemingly-random information. Down at the docks, there will be a quiz booth. When you enter it, you will be presented with questions that the parrot asked -- if you get a certain amount right, you will be able to enter the Pixels' Underwater World!

Heroes Among Us!

Do you have what it takes to be a Hero?

Long in the making, the first of the Furcadia Hero Series of avatars is nearly ready to embark on an amazingly adventurous journey! Heroes are a new line of anthro avatars that are closely related to the Nobles. Each Hero comes with a unique weapon and a matching set of armor that command respect and admiration from the less heroic species.

The Hero Vulpine is the tailsome champion of everything that is foxy! Equipped with a finely carved bow made of only the most durable pixels and dressed in exquisitely protective gear, this spectacular avatar is guaranteed to be the talk of the town. Like all Heroes, the Vulpine comes in three distinct genders and was from the ground up designed to work with all wing types.

Can't wait to sweep through Kasuria with your massively bushy tail? You'll have to keep your heroic desires in check for only a little bit longer! The Hero Vulpine is almost fully prepared to go on any adventure you can dream of! If you want to ensure that you're one of the very first to become a legend, you can now reserve your very own über-fox on Digo Market and snatch the exclusive Longbow desctag FOR LIFE that can only be obtained by preordering.

But wait, what's this? A note, pinned to a nearby tree trunk by the tip of an arrow...

Are you always the Bard of your party? Love telling campfire stories, or just really like a good bit of gossip? Then we have a quest for you! The Hero Vulpines desire for all of Kasuria to eagerly anticipate their arrival, and are thus looking for intrepid storytellers to weave fitting tales of their noble deeds and daring adventures to spread amongst the commonfolk!

Are you up for the task? You may just impress the Hero Vulpines so much that one may choose to join your party for a short time... or perhaps FOR LIFE! Read on for full details!
