Purrfectly Fluffy!

Summer is the season of M'Rill, Prime of Felines, and the perfect time to welcome a new feline to the Furcadia family!

Silky, sassy, and full of fluff in all the right ways, say hello to the Purrsian!

The Purrsian isn't quite ready to sashay it's way into Kasuria yet, but when it arrives you can be one of the first to strut through Furcadia in all your floofy glory by grabbing the presale on Digo Market! The presale is available for only a limited time and comes with an exclusive FOR LIFE desctag, so be sure to scoop one up before time runs out! Meow!

Server Maintenance (August 12)

Just a quick heads-up that we'll perform server maintenance involving our database drive on August 12. The Furcadia server as well as the web site will be unavailable during this time. Maintenance will begin at approximately 2:00 PM FST and take at least one hour. For status updates during maintenance, please check our Twitter.

Update: We received new word from our hosting company concerning the hardware maintenance later today: They have extended the maintenance window, so the downtime will likely exceed the original estimate of one hour. We expect multiple hours of server downtime.

Beach Bash Dream Contest!

Though looking a little different this year, Summer has indeed arrived! With most countries having safety guidelines requiring social distancing, getting together to cool off at the local watering hole isn't that easy to do this year... which makes Furcadia the perfect place for a massive BEACH BASH!

Working alone or in a team, build a Dream with a Tropical Island Beach theme (think Animal Crossing) where everyone can gather for an epic party in the sun, surf, and sand! Woo! And since fun activities and games are often found at parties, extra points will be awarded for any interesting things to do on your island!

This contest will run til the end of August, so you have lots of time to get those creative juices flowing!

What's your Sign?

Astrology is a very popular topic worldwide, and while we have celebrated the Chinese Zodiac here in Furcadia for many years, it's time the Tropical Zodiac got some much-deserved love too!

The zodiac is the belt of constellations that the Sun, Moon, and planets move through on their yearly journey across the sky. Ancient astrologers noted the patterns of the movements of these constellations and developed a system representing 12 of them to span a year based on the seasons, beginning with Aries on the Spring Equinox.

So starting today on the Summer Equinox you'll be able to find the first in our newest series of collectible Zodiac desctags -- Cancer!

These tags will be available individually or as part of a fun Zodiac bundle featuring an avatar and consumables based on the current sign, and last an entire year in your description! Each sign has it's own corresponding element -- air, water, earth, fire -- and accompanying planet that has been beautifully captured in these desctags created by Rat the Unloved. Wear your sign proudly!

Each Zodiac tag will be released on it's corresponding start date as the year progresses, so keep an eye on Digo Market for yours to arrive!

Happy Mother's Day!

The First of May!

Ah, Spring. Take a deep breath in! The air is heavy with the scent of all things green and growing, life anew after the cold and bitter Winter months. Invigorating, isn't it? *ah-CHOO!* Er, well, unless of course you suffer from seasonal allergies, but hey! It's still beautiful to look at!
