Share Your Newbie Tales

9 Dec 2016, 12:11 am
okay so i started playing furvilla the same time two other of my friends did and needless to say they got far pretty fast, which is awesome! i'm very happy for them!!
and i'm pretty proud of my progress too, but there's just one thing

HOLY FRICKING MOLY MY VILLAGERS ARE GETTING SICK EVERY TIME THEY STEP FOOT OUTSIDE


there was one point where 3/4 of my villagers got sick at the same time. to me i thought this was super common because COULD YOU BLAME ME??
but apparently my friends have gotten sick maybe. twice in total. maaaaaaaaaybe three times.

basically i learned that i host the furvilla plague, mere whisper of progress brings SICKNESS FORTH. (at least a few of my villagers are getting pretty good at medicine : D )

SO, what are your newbie tales? you don't necessarily have to be a newbie, but it'd be fun to hear your first experiences! lucky, unlucky, hilarious, simple misunderstandings, tell 'em all : D let's bond over silly circumstances.

Mirutanku I feel you, when Furvilla opened for beta and I started playing around, my villagers got sick like .. every time they explored or every time I tried to harvest something. But that was probably because the health system was a bit off then, right now it seems quite ... peaceful. Even though I have heard that a lot of people are dealing with the plague in your village, it must be really terrible lol!

Thankfully, only two of my villagers got sick since I joined. But just in case, I made one of my villagers to be a doctor so he can make potions. :)
On other news, it took me a while to find where the "explore" button was. ^^"
Also at first, I didn't know I could harvest/plant multiple seeds at the same time. I was clicking each pot, waiting for it load, select a seed and wait for it to confirm/refresh it... I never really scrolled down to see the option until few hours ago. XD

for the entire of the first day on furvilla i was like
"okay so,, my villagers have careers now,,,, what do i do with them???"
in my defence I've never playing any other similar game other than flight rising but that one's really easy to understand
only on the second day did i find out that the career shields beside the villager could be clicked on

Bought an animal from the NPC store for 150. Thought "Hey, that's not bad!" It's common. I caught it the first time out with my Animal...Husbander. They're selling in people's shops for 10FC. Whoops.

My villager's immune systems and bones were PAPER thin in the beginning.

When I first started, I thought being an explorer would be too common, and thus not make much money, so I started off with a herbalist. I was just ordering seeds from the market for a few days before I realized you got them by exploring- not my greatest moment.

It took me another few months to figure out how to breed animals, as I thought it required a breeding potion but then that was way out of my price range.

Even after everything I'm still too stubborn to ask questions c:

When I first joined I didn't know how to navigate the site and that careers weren't automatic. I thought once you switched to them stuff was automatically made haha

My villagers, too, kept getting sick like dogs (pun intended).

They're still getting sick constantly. Oh, and collection was terrible in Animal Husbandry originally.

All of my villagers have gotten sick at least once. I have 2 currently sick. Also, for the longest time I had no idea what the little symbols beside names were.

I'm not new anymore that's for sure but I used to think quetzal palace's icon was a trashcan and was like "why are they trash, what an awful icon"

Soon after the beginning of the beta, I wanted to buy 200 sword containers for my doctor.
So I correctly entered the 10k FC needed, but... I didn't change 1 to 200... So I ended up buying one sword container at the cost of 200.
I sell medicines, potions, costumes and raw materials from Olde Foxbury at a fair price. Check my profile to see what my villagers have to offer :)

Mistook the word Painties for Panties. Did not know if I wanted to look at said area. XD

I remember thinking painties said panties as well, and I definitely know the sickness feel.

I basically stumbled in the dark. Made my first villager a warrior like so many new people are doing before I realized explorer was the way to go and it took me SO LONG to realized that the WARRIOR job was where I got half the costume materials from

When it comes to deadly weapons and foul play, Karma's got us all beat.

All of these posts relatable. So relatable. Kinda glad (AND SAD) that i'm not the only one who has suffered this mysterious PLAGUE

i'm thankful careers can be changed like every 2 hours because i made my first villager a crafter after changing from explorer. i was so, so, so very lost.

I just joined recently and when I sent out one of my villagers to go find seeds, she brought back "Souls of the Damned" and I nearly spit out my drink x3

my first villager was a warrior

I was like beyond confused. I didn't know any better until I saw what others were doing in the forums and I was like "o"

My first villager was a tailor because I was like screw explorers they're too lowbrow I wanna make clothes

Then I realized that the tailor was basically useless without an explorer, and even longer to realize that I needed a warrior as well >v>"

When I first joined I thought you could only have one villager and spent twenty minutes trying to decide whether Mariella was entirely perfect so I didn't just mess up immediately. Then I figured Animal Husbandry would be a simple, quick, and easy way to make money without needing to rely on other careers. I figured out my mistake pretty quickly. I was also curious and clicked the Adopt on the wandering villagers and got Jackson and realized I could have more than one villager (and get rid of them) and I also had an Explorer finally and realized the importance of that career.
