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!

Festival of the Sun!

The Spring rains have made the Northern Hemisphere green and verdant once more -- but it's due time for a proper heatwave! Welcome to Summer!

Long sunny days, beach parties, picnics, and waterballoon fights are all staples of the hot Summer months, and here in Furcadia it also means it's time to celebrate the annual Festival of the Sun!

Like with all festivals, there is much to see and do! Wander the exotic market for a special trinket, riddle with a Sphinx, ride an impressive barge down the river, or explore mysterious ancient catacombs. Don't forget to pay tribute to our Lady M'Rill, Prime of Felines, as well! She may just reward you for your patronage!

And, of course, the arrival of the Festival of the Sun also means that the Lighting of the Fires is not far off. This traditional event is held annually within the Festival grounds and always sees a huge gathering! Felorin and Talzhemir will be on hand to light the fires -- you may even catch a glimpse of M'Rill herself! So be sure to watch for the date announcement!

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!

The first of May, traditionally known as May Day, is a celebration of the glory of Spring in all its splendor. A time for song, May-pole dancing, admiring multi-colored blooms of all types, and CAKE!

The Eventers want to celebrate with YOU on this most florally festive day, so join them this afternoon in Jujinka's Spring Festival for games, laughs, and flowery prizes in so many colors!

Where: Jujinka's Spring Festival

When: Friday, May 1st

Time: 5pm FST

May Day is also a great time for the giving of flowers and small gifts, and Digo Market is chock full of floral delights to share with your friends (or spoil yourself with, we're not judging!)

Happy Earth Day!

It's time to take a moment to send love out to this beautiful blue and green galactic marble we call home -- our beloved Earth! We hope you'll join us in taking steps today to ensure we leave a clean and healthy planet for future generations to inherit and care for.

Even during this challenging time when many of us find ourselves spending the vast majority of our time inside (which itself has lead to a drop in air pollution, yay!), there are still many small things you can do at home to promote a healthy climate!

  • Plant something in your yard
  • Use reusable bags and water bottles
  • Make an online donation to any of a number of earth friendly organizations
  • Start a compost pile
  • Be mindful of water consumption by fixing leaky faucets, taking shorter showers, turning the tap off while brushing teeth, etc
  • And so much more!

April Fools -' Winterfest 2019' - Recap!

This year, on what just happened to be April 1st, April Fools, the Dragon looked out across Kasuria and decided 2020 wouldn't do. We'd have a do-over and we were all taken back to Winterfest 2019!

To celebrate, the eventers hosted a party in Danival's Winter Festival.

Furres got comfortable and huddled together, sipping hot cocoa with toasted marshmallows. The fresh scent of pine and festive treats wafted through the air as the snow on the ground glistened and sparkled.

Breaking this cosy atmosphere, a snowball fight broke out, getting everyfurre on their feet! Nobody was safe from pelting.

Once things calmed back down again, the spirit of Winter Festival picked up as furres were allocated their special 'elf names'. Esmi became 'Grinchy Sugar Socks' and Iced became 'Dasher McJingles' to name a few. (If you missed out you can work out yours Here)

In memory of the year that had passed, furres shared their favourite memes. A big thanks to those who whispered in!

The Winterfest party was not complete without a game of madlibs, tailored to the day's strange happenings of course! The final story is posted below:


The Dragon frowned, 2020 looked bad, it's time to go back they said and do it again. The fluffy furres gathered in the snow, long and fruitily screamed about. There were festive lights in the trees and lego along the paths. The mood was set for a stinky night.

The trees sang songs about crows and the kiwis sipped hot cocoa under the tomatoes while burping. Sarnith and Poe gobbled snowballs while Shimatsu smacked the wet frogs. Amabel built a pillowpet of snow, and Kono added the final detail, a tiny woman.

'How strange!' mused the Dragon, with a voluminous grin. Shall we do this again, tomorrow, with a quesadilla? 'But what about Spring?' asked the furres? The thought of flatulent flowers and butterflies bumbling about seemed quite nice. 'I see' said the dragon. 'We'll return to normal... but in the meanwhile enjoy!' For the rest of the night the furres boogied in the snow and shared itchy hot cocoa. 'A bit absurd!' they said, 'but we'll take it!'


Finally to finish things off, furres gathered together and gave their best cheesy grins for a group photo!

We hope everyone had a good time, we sure did! Thank you to everyone for helping out and celebrated with us!

Cheeeese!

Turning Back the Clock on 2020

Across the lands the new year has come trundling in like an angry curcupine, unsettling the balance and instilling uncertainty and fear into the hearts and minds of Kasurians near and far. The Dragon, growing more dismayed as the tumultuous weeks have unfolded, has taken it upon his/herself to provide a much needed respite from the chaos for all within The Dreaming.

Taking a deep breath inwards, The Dragon conjures the image of a far more cheerful time within its minds eye; a time truly not so far passed, but feeling of an eternity. Heaving a great sigh, the magic springs forth in a gust from The Dragon's maw, cascading through The Dreaming as a swirling, sparkling mist upon the ground, obscuring the landscape for a brief moment.

As the haze clears, the distinct smell of peppermint and gingerbread furres suddenly permeates the air, and a thousand twinkling lights can be seen dancing upon the deep, freshly fallen snow. The sound of silver bells rings from a distance, nearly drowned out by the undeniable joyfilled laughter of furlings as they dart past in hats and scarves, snowballs flying haphazardly from mitted paws. What a sight to behold!

It is clear The Dragon has used its immeasurable power to return Kasuria to the blissful and carefree time of WinterFest 2019! Purrhaps a do-over of 2020 is just the thing to set everything to rights, no? ;)

St. Patrick's Day - Recap!

We celebrated St. Parick's Day 2020! Our annual event took place at Mycroft's Tavern, Meovanni. Here's a quick recap!

All our friends arrived in their bright green, orange and white colours too represent St Patricks day. It was great to see everyone in such bright and hopeful colours! We started the event with some good old "What's your Leprechaun name" where everyone got to find out their funny and weird names! If you missed it, you can still find out yours right here.

We then moved onto some St Parick's Day trivia! Participants had the chance to guess the correct answer to win themselves some some nifty prizes! After the guessing game and learning fun new facts about St. Patrick's, we ended the event with some limericks. Everyone got to share their favourites.

Here is a fun one! Try saying it fast! Smiley

A flea and a fly in a flue,
Were imprisoned, so what could they do?
Said the fly, "Let us flee!"
"Let us fly," said the flea,
And they flew through a flaw in the flue.

A fantastic event, and a big thank-you to everyone who came and helped out!
