Happy Holidays!

This is the time of the year where the magic is heavy in the air, where love and affection swirl around, and where families and loved ones create new memories together. It can also be a time of loneliness, of sad memories, and a reminder of the present void in our life.

Furcadia has always been a home away from home for many throughout the past 27 years, and this is especially true during this time of the year. We're are very appreciative of you, our community. We hope you'll spend some quality time in Furcadia, to share your joy or to seek comfort. Old friends, and new friends that you have yet to meet, await you - to socialize with, to laugh with, to extend our love and friendship to, and yes, to create new memories with!

As a thank-you from us to you, we've released a new freebie avatar, the Yule Goat! It is a richly decorated, super cheerful Goaten that is here to put a smile on your face and stay by your side no matter what.

Happy holidays from the Furcadia Staff! We wish you an amazing time and a great start into 2024. May it be a year worth remembering fondly!

November Raffle

We heard you like raffles, so we thought we'd do more raffles!

In December, we'll start the first of our brand-new raffle seasons (more details on this shortly!), but we already wanted to give you a pre-season treat!

How it works:

Every Digo Market order for an avatar or portrait space placed between November 1st and 30th enters our Cozy November Raffle. Every full $10 or 10 DragonScales (rounded up) spent on an order yields 1 raffle ticket.

For example: placing an order with a total value of $12.50 will give you 1 raffle ticket. An order for a total of $26.99 will give you 3 tickets!

Raffle tickets are represented by a Knitted Hat desctag that will be added manually to the characters that received the items from an order. This will be done by paw on or before December 1st, so you'll see your tickets in your description before the raffle (scheduled for December 3rd, 4:00 PM Furcadia time).

You don't need to do anything to get your tickets. All of your November 2023 orders on Digo Market will automatically yield tickets for you and the tickets will show up in your description on or before December 1st.

What earns tickets?

This applies to all purchases of avatars and portrait spaces on Digo Market, not only items that are on sale. This means if you buy non-sale Digo avatars/portraits, you'll earn more raffle tickets! Digo avatar and portrait Bundles are included too.

It does not include services (like clearing portraits), group packages, or desctags/specitags.

So, what can you win?

All tickets from Digo Market orders made in November enter a raffle for the following prizes:

1 x Custom Avatar Space FOR LIFE (winner: Aetera)
1 x Ferian or SkyPuff avatar of your choice FOR LIFE (winner: Mochamutt)
1 x Minkin, Ling, Noble, or Seasonal avatar of your choice FOR LIFE (winner: ShadowMage)
1 x Mythical avatar of your choice FOR LIFE (winner: Venusia)
5 x Rose & Consumables Bundle (winners: Aetera x 2, Clockwork, Kosty, Kazuyah)
5 x Parnieq's Feather Bundle (winners: Juniana, Caspian Seabreeze, Trico, Bunny Freak, Eli)

The avatars will include their respective collectible desctags FOR LIFE that are only available with the full-price purchase of the avatars. The avatar space and the avatars can be given to a character of your choice and are tradable.

New Hamkin!

Dibba dee da dibba do do, deeeeeba dibba doooo!

Nibbly, bouncy, scampering, and a proud owner of a magical soap bubble, the Hamkin store food in their super stretchy cheeks. And when they are all full and too tired to walk around, they conjure their personal bubble to float about!

The Hamkin isn't quite ready yet to bubble around, so they need a little support before they are up to floating around in their extremely cute ways! If you want to help, you can get an exclusive presale desctag FOR LIFE on Digo Market as a thank-you for pre-ordering the Hamkin! It cannot be obtained later on!

New Hounden!

A new digo is here: the Hounden!

Unlike most other Ferians, the Hounden has 3 variants to let you be different breeds! The male has the boxed muzzle with floppy ears, the female is fluffy with long fluffy ears, and the unspeci has the pointy ears. The marking combinations mean you can be a Dalmatian, Doberman, Rottweiler, Great Dane, Saluki, and Greyhound, among others!

Only available on Digo Market!

Changes to Sponsor Goodies

As you probably know, owners of Sponsorships and Group Packages receive a juicy delivery of consumable, throwable, or giveable desctags every month.

We'll be making a couple of changes to these Sponsor Goodies based on your feedback:

  • Starting in June, we're switching the delivery date to the beginning of each month. We're aiming for the first day of a month so that you'll know when you'll get new material for your arsenal.
  • Also starting in June, most consumables will now last 4 weeks instead of three months. We're making this change because a lot of you told us that the goodies clutter your descriptions. You'll get more consumables to make up for the shorter duration.
    • Note: This does not include Roses, Bracelets, Wands, Snugs and a number of similar items, as these are not displayed in your description. Those will continue to last until they're used.

As a special bonus, in June we'll be including a few Pixel Pows and a test version of Parnieq's Feathers.

Get an active Sponsorship or Group Package by June 1st so you don't miss out on these special freebies! If you have both a Sponsorship and Group Package, you get multiple deliveries of Goodies! And, if you're looking for non-subscription options, we also currently have a sale for 6 months of Silver Sponsorship.

New Flop and Fleep!

You asked for it! The Flop and Fleep that invaded Furcadia on April 1 are now available on Digo Market!
