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!

Mobile Friendly Web Client - Updates!

Thanks for all your feedback! The most frequent suggestions we received for the web client were for an improved mobile experience on Android and iOS, and we are happy to announce that we just released a big update that makes the web client much more mobile-friendly!

You can now choose between a mobile UI in portrait mode (with a nifty Menu button for map shortcuts, settings, commands and more) and the full-fat Furcadia UI (with tweaks to make it more usable on a touch screen). We definitely recommend portrait orientation for using the web client on your phone!

The newly added settings allow you to change between different levels of animations. You can also use this mobile interface in your desktop web browser as well by opening the web client in a new window and making that window more narrow. Try it out, it looks great!

Android and iOS users can make the web client behave much like a native app by using "Add To Home Screen" in Safari (iOS) or Chrome (Android). You can then launch the web client just like a native app by tapping the icon. No need to launch the browser again.

On mobile devices, you can now long-press on a character to pull up a context menu (just like right-clicking in the regular Furcadia client).

You can try out the web/mobile client at Just use your regular Furcadia account to log in!

See demo videos here (iOS) and here (Android)!

Below is the full change log with all the changes. This is only an initial release. We will be adding more features and tweaks in the upcoming weeks. Please help us test this web/mobile client and let us know if you encounter any issues. When reporting bugs, please tell us about your device and the browser you're using. We primarily support Safari and Chrome at the moment, but the web client will work in Mobile Firefox also, though there may be some smaller usability issues.

  • added mobile-friendly interface
    • activates on browser windows narrower than 600 pixels wide (including phones in portrait mode)
    • single-column login and character selection screens
    • compact game view with a dynamically sized game screen, chat box and docked menus
    • chat tabs appear on a single scrollable row if you have open whispers
    • chat input shows placeholder "tap to chat" / "tap to whisper Treeki" text when empty/inactive
  • full-size interface can now be scrolled and zoomed on phones (in landscape mode) and on tablets
  • added icons and metadata so that Furcadia can be installed as a web app using "Add To Home Screen" in Safari for iOS and Chrome for Android
  • added chat timestamp settings
  • added font settings
  • added "replace 'you say' with your name" setting

    • sub-menus appear/disappear with a slight delay

  • fixed bug where login screen would hang if a character had no saved colour code
  • fixed bug when closing the last whisper tab
  • fixed bug where clicking on text in the chat log would break typing until you explicitly clicked the input again
  • whisper tabs now show spaces in names instead of |
  • smart quotes are now converted to regular quotes, so WinFurc users can see text from iOS users properly
  • custom music and sounds in dreams will now play
    • all kinds of music files should work, but only short sounds are currently supported - this will be revisited with a more comprehensive fix at a later date
  • fixed a bug where the game field was too small if you closed the keyboard with the Back button/gesture in Chrome for Android

  • DS effect (5:384) now behaves correctly
