Help Save the Koalas!

Koala CharityThe Koalas have had a bear of a time. While our whole world was on fire, so was theirs.

Fires have been ravaging Australian forests and wilderness, causing many Koalas and other unique wildlife to lose their homes and habitats. Furcadia has always been appreciative of our animal friends, and we would like your help to take care of some vulnerable furry friends.

We have researched The Australian Koala Foundation who are doing an exceptional job conserving and protecting endangered koalas and deserve our help.

They have been fighting for koalas and their habitats for over 35 years. Tirelessly helping threatened koalas directly, planting new trees to expand habitats and damaged ecosystems, and working hard to support political changes that protect these adorable animals and their environment.

Help us support this important charity, become adorable, and show love for one of Australia's most iconic animals all at the same time!

One of the most frequently requested avatars, the Koalen, is now available! To help this little marsupial make a big impact we are donating 50% of the revenue from each Koalen avatar that is purchased before January 1st, 2022 directly to the Australian Koala Foundation.

As a thank-you for your special support, everyone who buys a Koalen before the end of the year also receives an exclusive charity desctag FOR LIFE. The tag features blooming eucalyptus with both Australian aboriginal and national flag colors!

The Koalen avatar was designed and drawn by James, with butler, portraits, specitags and icons by Degu, and animations and final polish by Rat the Unloved!

Pick up a cute Koalen, maybe even two, today!

Wolf Howl 2020 Contest Winners

Phew! Sincerest apologies for the considerable delay in getting the results out for the the 2020 Wolf Howl contests. As compensation for our participants' -- very much appreciated -- patience, each will be receiving 1 year of Spirit Wolf on top of their prizes for placement in each category.

Pumpkin Patch Carving Winners -

[Judging courtesy of Rat the Unloved]

Alas, poor punkins, I knew them well. Having raised them up from but small seeds into such specimens as to bring joy to all who beheld them, and then offered them up for the carving pleasure of our dear community and the customary Wolf Howl traditions.

How can one judge that which is art? I mean, you know... ahem... plenty of people can be quite vigorous, and somewhat unkind in their judgements, and I feel they miss the true soul of the thing in doing so.

Let us start then with Thrifty Geek, who poured their creative juices into this humble fairytale pumpkin and from it crafted a face of spooky delight! They are noted with an Honorable Mention.

Then there is the offering of Zack The Great, tapping also into that 2020 spirit with a pumpkin perfectly carved, but left unlit. Darkened within, as without. Truly, a bold work, and a strong Third Place.

Next is Kono, a classic Jack O Lantern, flickering with candle light, scowling at the night to ward off evil spirit and pumpkin smasher alike. This is a fine friend, a good lad indeed. Second Place!

And lastly, but not leastly, as indeed they are FIRSTly... Single and their adorable cat-o-lantern. This OwO brought a big grin to my face, and I hope to yours as well. The stand-out winner, and a fantastic effort all around.

Thank you to all who visited Wolf Howl last year, and celebrated online or offline safely and joyfully. Thank you to those who participated in the carving contest, and to those who carve them another time in another place, displayed in their own dreams. Summer is nice and all, but Fall is the most wonderful time of the year.

Honorable Mentions: Happastance, Fading Memories

Both of these entries were very well thought out, charming, and super fun to read, but unfortunately were just shy of meeting parameters for the contest.

Prize - Premade Specitag of choice

3rd Place: Cosmic Star Bar

A cute and concise spell resulting in a cookie fight! Playtime and snacks all rolled in one. Yum!

Prize - Premade Specitag of choice & Animated Portrait Space

2nd Place: Furnarchy Devil

This spell brought to mind a triad of witches cackling over their bubbling cauldron, tossing ingredients in from random cob-webbed jars, to create a potion of some sort of gleeful mischief we are certain!

Prize - Premade Specitag of choice, Desctag Space, & Animated Portrait Space

1st Place: Kay Katt

Kay Katt's entry gave us two detailed incantations for strength and swiftness, but culminated in the most important power of all -- friendship! Their use of phrasing and rhythm truly created a beautiful image and feelings of warmth.

Prize - Premade Specitag of choice, Animated Portrait Space, & choice of Ghostie or Kitterjack FOR LIFE

Winners will be contacted in game regarding specitag choice.

Thank you to all who participated!

Wolf Howl is here!

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!

It's time for all things spooky... and spoopy! The most mischievous time of the year is the perfect opportunity for some fun contests!

Pumpkin Patch Carving

The awesome Rat the Unloved has conjured up three gourd-geous pumpkin patch-item bases for you! Pick your favorite one -- or if you're feeling adventurous take all three! -- and digitally carve a spooky or spoopy jack-o-lantern using Furcadia's official patch editor, FOXed!

Check out this awesome example Rat made!

Spooky Spells

Witty with words? All Hallow's Eve is the best time of year for the concocting of potions and summoning of all things ghoulish and frightful! So why not try your hand at writing up an appropriately haunting spell in the form of rhymed couplets, incorporating Furcadian objects and creatures.

Hang a pot of brew to boil,

Pinch of dust of pongo seed.

Once it peaks at steady roil,

Ready for what else must need.

Tongue of snugg and raukor's feather,

Two, no more, of eetrox horn.

All of these combined together,

Gain you now a brand new form!

- Glaciess

You could win yourself some awesome Wolf Howl swag! Just take part in one -- or both! -- of our contests!
