Living Library 2018 - Recap!

It's been a while since the Living Library event took place, but we still wanted to share a recap with you!

Kono and Different Turret hosted the eighth annual Living Library in Furcadia! If you haven’t attended before or heard of it, Living Library offers an opportunity for participants to share their not always easy lives with fellow Furcadians. It takes a stand against prejudice and is a safe space for sharing as well as mutual learning.

Here are some of the many topics discussed this year: Autism and leadership, gender as a spectrum, being non-binary, living with chronic illness, phone apps to cope with anxiety, and much more! Visiting players found themselves relating to the stories shared, discovering similarities in their own lives, sharing in turn, and realizing that nobody is alone.

Out of respect for the participants, we don't want to share details or retell experiences, these were for the eyes and ears of those who were there, but we were really touched by the community allowing others an honest and open look into their lives, the difficulties, and ways not only to improve one's situation, but also how to turn it into a source of strength and courage.

Furcadia is a unique place in cyberspace, because of you. Thank you to all our amazing volunteers, guests, and Kono and Different Turret for hosting. Until next year! Keep acceptance, love, and compassion close to your heart, always.

Corgen Kindling - Recap

This past Saturday saw the adorable Corgen bound their way into Furcadia!

But what started as a joyful gathering within the Coastal Meadow of The Wylde quickly became a scramble to save the day from the clutches of the Dark Prime Telcodar! The Wylde Fey kitters, whose magic was integral to wakening the Corgen from their Dragon's Breath Orbs slumber, were mysteriously absent... As the crowd peered round in confusion, a peal of sinister laughter echoed from the nearby dark wood. The Dark Prime of Frenzy had bewitched the tiny fey in an attempt to keep their magic from the kindling, compelling them to wander aimlessly along the edges of the Coastal Meadow and Broadleaf Wood, oh no!

Avatar Artist Spotlight - Corgen

Hello everyone! Today we're introducing a fun new Avatar Artist Spotlight Series!

From time to time we'll be sitting down to interview one of the creative paws behind upcoming/newly released Avatars to get an artist's perspective on the process. From unexpected hiccoughs, to happy accidents, to what snacks really get the creative juices flowing, you never know what you might learn!

Our first guinea-pi... I mean lucky artist, is Jade Ravenwing! Jade was lead designer for the adorable new Corgen!

Never a dull moment with the Wizard of Puns around, that's for certain!
