*grumbles as he pulls himself out of bed* Who decided starting these events at noon was a good idea? I’d love to shank the fellow… ahem. Greetings, villagers from far and wide! You may be delighted to hear that the Great Harvest has come, and we at Dragonsmaw Manor are thrilled to welcome you into the dark, creepy recesses of our home…
The Great Harvest is an event where we tirelessly plant pumpkins and carve them into Jack O Lanterns, where upon you can place them onto your doorstep and be blessed by the candies found within.
Begin by collecting your Pumpkin Carving kit by clicking on your own profile.
These pumpkin seeds you receive shall become your way of life. Use your herbalists to grow pumpkins, and your carving kit to shape them into the most beautiful of Jack O Lanterns.
Get it? Your skills will improve as you work at it, not all of us can be instant artists, hmhmmhmm.
You may want to keep these, they could very well be useful in the future.
Be sure to place your Jack O Lanterns on your doorstep (which is also located on your profile) so that the candy fairy
who is most certainly not me can visit your doorstep every ten minutes and deposit goodies into your Jack O Lanterns.
But what good is the treat without the trick, hmm? Well, my fine ladies, gentlemen, and assorted others, you may find it pleasing that you can exert your will upon the doorsteps of others. What good would our Harvest celebration be if it were without some mayhem and trickery?
Earn yourself some positive Karma (who needs that?) by depositing additional Jack O Lanterns and candies into the Jack O Lanterns of your fellow villagers. If you have high Karma, you will find yourself attracting Batbats (hey, it’s baseball season, and even we at Dragonsmaw Manor have a fondness for the sport).
Earn yourself some negative Karma (yes, excellent) by smashing the pumpkins of your fellows, and stealing their candy before they can withdraw it. If you have low Karma, you will find yourself attracting these curious little Ectoplasm.
Clearly, you need to both trick and treat to earn the full swarth of creatures the candy fairy may deliver to your Jack O Lanterns, yes? Yes. It does indeed seem so.
“And what are we doing with this candy, Chester?” you might ask. Well, that is an excellent question. It is one that I have many answers to (see, sometimes the choice is yours, fate has not determined your path, etc). You can convert your candy into Candy Points, or you can eat your candy to earn score toward the Feast. Whichever appeals to you more I assume, however do not forget to withdraw candies from your doorstep or you may find your fellow villagers stealing it more often than not.
Note, however, that the candies (as inventory items) have an expiration date of 14 days, which means that they shall all disappear as soon as that fourteen day passes. Candies do not last forever, my friends. It is a most unfortunate truth to the universe.
Don’t forget to peruse the Karma boards and find out who is being nicest and naughtiest… and exact your judgement upon them however you feel appropriate.
“Chester, what about all of these other items we found perusing the museum archives” you ask? Hahahaha… it seems you will have to wait until the second half of the event to learn more about these, my friends.
Because I wouldn’t be a trickster if I didn’t leave you with some mysteries, now would I?
The second half of the event will begin October 22nd. On that day, the Candy Shop shall open with glorious treats and plushes (after I get an idea of how many candies you feisty bunch have gathered), you shall begin growing pumpkins with the extra goal of pleasing me with the Harvest’s Largest Pumpkin, and these mysteries shall be solved, and—
Has anyone seen my hat? My goodness, where did it go now…
Event Data Corner
- Event Part 2 begins October 22nd, along with the Candy Shop
- Candies have a 14 day rotting period, like most foods and will expire on the 14th day after they have been spawned. Please be sure to use your candies, or convert them, before their expiration
- You can close your Doorstep from your profile if you want to take a break from the event, as many times as you wish
- You will only have the candy fairy visit your profile if you are online! The candy fairy visits every 10 min.
- The candy fairy deposits candy in your stash based on the number of Jack O Lanterns you have, and your Karma score
- Interact with other players’ doorsteps by visiting their profiles, where you can deposit candy, steal candy, deposit Jack O Lanterns, and smash Jack O Lanterns, to change your Karma score
- Event will end November 1st. Candy Shop will close November 8th.

Hey all! Just a quick update to let you all know that two new battlegrounds are available:
Challengers & Fierce Fighters.
We're experimenting with a new system with the Challengers battleground. The odds of receiving a Kitsune mini-pet should increase after each battle until it eventually drops for you. Once that particular Kitsune drops, you'll no longer receive this bonus. If all goes well, we'll use this system for future additions.
While there is a small chance of a Kitsune dropping in the Fierce Fighters battleground, it does not use the new system.
Due to this system having a large amount of variance, there has not been a tremendous amount of testing. Please report any issues you encounter!

Upcoming Festival Celebration
"It is my distinct pleasure to bring you all the wonderful news of the upcoming Dragonsmaw Manor yearly festival, the festivities will begin on October 15th. I’d suggest that you prepare your Herbalists, they’ll be working hard soon. The citizens of our fair town are quite excited to be hosting all of you for this event so please do come by and visit."

Ok, I have just one last thing for you guys, a bit of warning that we are planning to remove the Worker Slot Totems from the Feast prizes and replace them with a new item. The totems seem to be providing an unfair advantage in the contest, which was not our intent. Totems will be a craftable item once the switch happens.
Thanks for reading, see you all again soon!
♥ ADMIN-MAT ♥ and your esteemed Mayor Chester

Greeting, everyone! Admin-Deinmaar here, though unfortunately, it will be for the last time.
Due to IRL hardships and unfortunate circumstances, I've chosen to resign from my Admin position here on Furvilla. It is with a heavy heart that I am forced to step down from this mountain and leave the Furvilla Community. It's been an amazing experience being with you all since Beta released, and through the highs and lows of it all, and I'm going to miss each and every one of you. You've all been through so much with me, and I just hope I've been as helpful as I could be while I've been here.
I'm going to miss my MODs, as they've been my greatest support from the start, and have really stepped up to the tasks at hand. I believe that they will do great things for this site, as I believe you all can as well. Your support for this site has been uplifting, despite the hard times, and I just hope you all can forgive me for my mistakes along the way. I am but a mere Ice Dragon, after all.
As I descend the Admin Mountain, fear not, for Admin-Mat will be taking my place as the Head of Community from here on out, and has already been relieving me of my duties. Please show him the same co-operation and respect that you've shown me, and possibly even greater as he steps up to do what I no longer can. This Community has been through so much, and I know you can help us keep it all together, bit by bit. Within the week, probably within the next few days, my Admin status will be deactivated. This is not easy for me, but unfortunately, I don't have any other options.
I will miss you all.

Hi all! Just quickly letting you know what the current plans are regarding the conclusion of the event.
At noon Furvilla time tomorrow, map fragments will no longer drop. You'll also no longer be able to access your ship.
A week later, all materials & recipes related to the event will vanish, excluding plunder items, which you will no longer be able to convert into plunder points.
And finally, a week after that, the festival shop will close.
That's all for now, have fun!

September is here and you know what that means, I am here again with some new goodies for you all!

Pets within a pet? Huh...well the Jelliquarium is here!
Aww, it’s a little garden friend...Let’s welcome the Topifairy!
FD Pets can be obtained from the FurDollar Emporium. They have five day breeding cool downs and are available for breeding until October 1st, when a new batch of FD Monthlies will be released.

Looks like those pesky exploits have been fixed now and we're ready to get back into the swing of things with this event! Maps and the plunder conversion from your inventory have now been reactivated so let's get back to the fun. If you notice any bugs or issues please be sure to report them as you normally would through the site's report function.
And now statues should convert when you do the mass plunder turn in, they were a bit reluctant before but I think we've finally convinced them to get on board.
Be sure to check out the news post below for a fun, special edition round of Fur Idol!

Hello, hello! Just stopping in real quick to let you guys know about a Special round of Fur Idol that is starting up!
You can find the special Fur Idol contest at the link below, as always be sure to make sure to read all the rules carefully before entering.
So have fun showing off your Villagers and trying to win some nice piles of treasure! We look forward to seeing everyone's awesome entries.

Maps have temporarily been disabled due to information about an existing exploit becoming public. They'll be enabled again once this issue has been resolved.
Maps are no longer marked as maps, but any maps you craft or had previously will still exist within your inventory. There is currently no estimated time for a fix.
Unfortunately, we have to take a harsh stance when it comes to intentional exploiting of mechanics like this. Thank you to people who reported the issue and simply moved on. People who may have accidentally used the exploit or otherwise simply done it once or twice out of curiosity need not worry, however. We'll be investigating on case-by-case basis. If you suspect another player of cheating, please report them using the standard report feature.
Update: You can no longer add plunder to your hoard from your inventory. You can still use the convert-all function.
