Dear Community,

As of today, our current Community Forums have been switched to read-only mode. All existing information and posts remain intact and accessible, but no new threads or messages can be created.

We took this step because the customized software we use for our Community Forums is no longer maintainable. A lack of updates for an active forum also poses a security risk. The archived Forums will remain available in case you want to look up older material that may still be useful when building Dreams, or to take a trip down memory lane.

WinterFest Contests

The trees have shed the remainder of their Autumn colors, and a swift cold breeze stirs across Furcadia. Light laughter like the tinkle of silver bells follows in its wake, a promise of fun and joy to come. A soft blanket of fluffy white snow has come to banish Wolf Howl until next year... Danival's Winter Festival has arrived!

In celebration of this most festive season, we have TWO super fun contests for you to take part in!

Wolf Howl Contests Awards Ceremony

The trees of Wolf Howl have shed the last of their Autumn colors and a soft white covering of snow has come to blanket the festival grounds - Danival's Winter Festival has arrived!

Which means it is time to announce the winners of the Wolf Howl pumpkin carving and Spookitty coloring page contests! The awards ceremony will be taking place tomorrow (Wednesday, December 12) at the stage in Danival's Winter Festival, 6pm FST.

Rumor has it that rare Golden Stars have been seen falling from the sky within the Festival grounds -- if you are in attendance for the ceremony, you may just find one landing in your paws!

See you there!

Inside The Portrait

Hello! Degu here with a special presentation for you today: a look inside the process of creating an official Furcadia portrait!

While butler art is often created early on in the avatar creation process, portrait art tends to come at the end. The video tutorial below was made for our avatar artists and offers insight into the methods used to demonstrate the process from start to finish, and I'd like to share it with you, too!

Wolf Howl Arrives!

Overcome by the sudden urge to Awoooo at the moon? Does the crunch of leaves underfoot fill you with glee? Have you kitterjack-spiced ALL the things? No doubt about it... Wolf Howl has arrived!

This annual festival in honor of Prime Reegarr has lots of eerily entertaining things to see and do, mwahaha!

  • Pick a pumpkin and carve it into the purrfect jack-o-lantern
  • Linger by the moonlit pool to let your inner wolf loose
  • Venture into the haunted mansion to assist an odd, possibly mad, dragon... what could go wrong?
  • Some folks speak of stumbling upon strange Words of Power, but their purpose remains a mystery...
  • And more!

Some fun contests will be announced soon, so keep an eye out here for details!
