World Kindness Day - Recap



I hope everyone had a kind and wonderful World Kindness Day! The Eventers had a wonderful day with everyone at Theatre Meovanni. There were many wonderful shout-outs, stories of positivity and random acts of kindness, and a lot of fun and happy conversations!



We even had an amazing gesture when Jes donated a tree for every furre in the dream at 4PM FST, with an amazing donation of 68 trees to #TeamTrees!



Thank you to everyone who came to hang out with us and share this amazing day. Remember to be kind to one another, and it's always in season to show kindness. If you're looking for something to give, there is always something on the Digo Market!

Halloween Hijinx - Recap

T'was a dark and spoopy night in the Wolf Howl Festival on October 30th, as we celebrated the 4th annual Halloween Hijinx. As everyone made their way in, we gathered around the StoryTeller's Circle to chat about Halloween and our plans.

After everyone had arrived and settled, we decided to start off with some mischief. We kicked off the event with some Trick or Treating!

Esmi, Icesis, Juliet, and Kufky hid around the Wolf Howl Festival while furres ran around looking for them. Once they found them, they were to stand in front of the Eventer Beekin and say "Trick or Treat!". Then, based on the roll of a die, they either were rewarded with a piece of candy for a treat, or smacked with a trout as a trick.

The objective was to visit each of the four Eventers and try to collect as much candy as possible. You could only revisit a previous Eventer if you'd visited all the others in between. First place received one week of all new Nightmare avatar! Second and Third place received a one day Nightmare! Our winners were:

First Place: Fading Memories (10 pieces of candy)

Second Place: Sarnith (8 pieces of candy)

Third Place: KeeZy (6 pieces of candy)

Thank you to all the participants and congratulations to the winners!

After the intense Trick or Treating, we once again gathered in the StoryTeller's Circle to enjoy some fun Halloween trivia! Each question was asked, and the furre was to whisper Icesis with the correct answer, and in the correct sequence, won a one day Nightmare. Congratulations to our winners Wallaby, Metalucifier, KayKatt, and Lileo.

The final event for the evening was the fan favorite: Costume Contest! Winner(s) received a one month Nightmare, and all participating furres received a one day Nightmare.

We would like to thank all the participants who took part: Bitterness, Friesian, Metalucifier, Amabel, IraNik, Explosions, Floof Cop, Kashurra, Kangaroo, and Xela!

This competition ended up being a four-way tie between Friesian who utilized the amazing Nightmare to cosplay a stalhorse from The Legend of Zelda; IraNik as the mythical Japanese Kitsune; Kashurra as a Death Cleric; and Xela as a Vulpix from Pokémon! You all did an amazing job!

Thank you so much to everyone who came out and made this year's Halloween Hijinx a lot of fun and a great success! Be sure to checkout the Digo Market and pick up the new Nightmare before it disappears!

Remember to stay safe and have a happy and fun Halloween.

SURPRISE! A Nightmare has descended upon Furcadia, plus upcoming Halloween Hijinx Event!

In the cold waning of October, the minions of Taglinn Tigh, Dark Prime of Fear, are released, galloping forth from beyond the wall of dreams.

The Nightmare, blazing brightly in the shadows, comes to spread a little Halloween mischief across Kasuria's fields and fens. They devour pleasant dreams, and leave only scary visions in their wake - these spooky steeds have a bone to pick with you, and thankfully there's enough to go around.

The Nightmare is only around during the dark, chill weeks before Winter sets in though, so be sure to wrangle one of your very own before they vanish back into the void until next year!


Annual Halloween Hijinx Event!

Halloween is only a couple sleeps away but we're bringing the fun out early! Join us for our our annual Halloween Hijinx: Trick or Treat Event this Wednesday, October 30th!

Throw on your best - or worst! - costume, grab your buckets or pillow cases, and hunt down the Eventers hiding all around the Dream for your chance to score some yummy candy! But watch out, it's the season of deception and you may wind up with a stinky old fish instead! The risk may be worth the reward though, as there is rumor of some exclusive special prizes lurking in the Eventers' treat bags that you may just be lucky enough to find landing in your bucket.

What: Halloween Hijinx Trick or Treat Event

Where: Wolf Howl Festival

When: Wednesday, October 30th at 5pm FST

Find us in the pumpkin patch to start the night, and those who come in costume will also have a chance to win some goodies . Get creative with your colors and description, taking on the guise of your favorite hero, monster, profession, item of food, or anything you can possibly conceive (but keep it T+!) and have your name entered for some spooktacular prizes, including the new Nightmare!

MoonAwoo event - a recap

Did you get to see the hunter's moon this past weekend? In honor of all things moon, the Eventers hosted a fun gathering over in the Wolf Howl Festival on Monday -- to share fun facts and do some serious and ever important AWOOOing at the bright moon!

To fit the occasion, this moontastic event started off with furres staring intently into the reflection of the moon. Those that lingered (and kept starring!) were soon transformed into something fierce, fluffy ... and extra howl-y.

With the frequent bout of moonsong, guests were encouraged to share their favorite facts about the moon, its myths, and how it is celebrated around the world. Learning about the moon rabbit was enchanting, while mooncakes just made us hungry.

Luckily, mooncheese was at hand to feed the peckish, and the night was ended with a round of moon memes and MoonMoon jokes.

Thanks to all who stopped by and joined in on the AWOOOing this year!

Hero Vulpine Kindling & Wolf Howl Launch!

Get your bows strung and arrows fletched, and head on down to the Wolf Howl Festival grounds this coming Wednesday, October 9th at 5:30pm FST.

Fun, laughs, and prizes to be had! Who will have the truest shot of them all?

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!

Check out the amazing entries HERE!
