Hi all! It’s that time of year again where the Quetzal Palace Serpent descends to the mainland to pay all of us a visit (and collect offerings of course). But this Festival isn’t all about the Serpent, I mean what is a Festival without some festivities right?
As everyone knows, the Gala is fast approaching but this year Quetzal Palace is also hosting the first ever Serpent Festival Fashion Show! Citizens from far and wide are welcome to attend and show off their finest Serpent Festival looks. So come on and take a walk down the catwalk and strut your stuff!
Below you will find a link to the Fashion Show thread, please be sure to read all the rules thoroughly to make sure your post/s will be eligible. We’re looking forward to seeing all your beautiful, smiling, fashion forward faces out there!
Serpent Festival Fashion Show
I hope everyone enjoys the show and I’ll see you all there!

Oh...is this one of my feathers? Oh wait! This is one of the Serpent's feathers?! Oh goodness! The Serpent is losing feathers at a much increased rate! How wonderful for all of you feather collectors! Just remember that in order to get that golden trophy, you're going to need 50 of them. And mind that they are the Serpent's feathers and not mine...poor vain molting bird that I am. Stress you know...trying to keep up with all the events in this event have this poor anchorman losing feathers as well! But I'm sure we'll all enjoy the rest of this event and everything will go smoothly soon, in time for the big Gala!
*Feathers now have a 25% drop rate when you turn in pets to the Serpent.*
Also, all of my fine feathered, furred, or scaled friends, this change comes with another additional stage. The items that you are so eagerly awaiting, they will not be priced until the 21st, and that pricing is going to be determined by the feather ratio. So the more you pluck those feathers from the floor, the more those items are going to cost. Keep that in mind as you continue your feather hunting! I know we're all looking forward to seeing all of you dress your best for the Gala!

Greetings, villagers of the mainland. The time has come, and the serpent has landed on the mainland and is ready for your offerings. This ancient beast is one of the last remaining from the old times, before written history, before the villages came together in a global economy and named themselves, collectively, Furvilla. This serpent is where the villagers of Quetzal Palace have made our town, and its constant movement allows us travel across the entire Furvillian continent. Except for these coming two weeks, at least...
The serpent is peculiar, you see. It enjoys collecting small animals and weaponry/armor (though we are widely uncertain what it does with these items). If you bring it an offering of these items, it will reward you in turn. Our Cloudog species was created by the serpent, and it appears that it has created more life from the clouds:
As you may note, these creatures have a breeding cool-down of one day. This means that you may attempt to breed them, if you are skilled in animal husbandry, or you can continue to offer the serpent creatures in exchange for its creations. You may find that the serpent is more rewarding, if you are seeking out a rarer animal. When the serpent leaves on March 1st, these creatures will become infertile, and will not be able to breed.
But fear not, as the Guardian Angels will be working to collect rare and super rare creatures to offer at the Gala Ball. Nonetheless, if you happen to include 5,000 FC with your animal offering, the serpent may regard which species you prefer.
The serpent is giving away weapons and armor (and a helm) that are far stronger than most we have created... and much more sturdy. Perhaps one day the serpent will share its techniques for durable construction with our blacksmiths... hm...
This is the Serpent's Feather, and you can obtain it by trading in weapons or armor to the serpent. This is the currency of the Gala Ball. If you wish to purchase anything from the Gala, then you should collect these. Hm... I do believe you may want to make sure you collect fifty of these beautiful feathers before the Gala opens... but that is your choice, of course.
That strange fellow who creates all the plushes has been hard at work designing ones for our illustrious festival... now, you may not find you are able to get your paws on these until the Gala opens. However, you can gaze upon them right now and begin your plans for collection.
Speaking of the Gala, you are aware it opens on February 21st at 12:00 PM, yes? I expect you will be getting yourself ready for that... place yourself in a nice suit or dress, and you will look your best. Perhaps you can earn yourself a VIP ticket to the Gala? Do be sure to bring plenty of feathers, as there will be many fashionable objects available at the Gala for your perusal and purchase: plushes, furniture, vistas, rare and super rare creatures... perhaps other things, as we hosts see fit.
It appears that the Skunk and Dutch Angel Dragon species have found their wings in the Fairy Costume... or an extra pair of wings, depending on who you're talking to.
The Snake and Dutch Angel Dragon species have learned to smile down upon us from the stars, and can now wear the Galaxy Costume.
The Dutch Angel Dragon and Bear species have joined our ranks in the army, and can now wear the Angelic Costume.
Now, if you will excuse me... I am a bit preoccupied with a promise I made earlier... *she searches for a note that she had written, but frustratedly cannot find it* ...oh dear. Well, this may not end well...
- Trade 5 Animals in for 1 Festival Animal (better RNG than breeding)
- Pay 5,000 FC to choose Festival Animal Species
- Festival Animals set to 1 Day Breeding Charge until 3/1/2017
- Festival Animals become unbreedable on 3/1/2017
- Trade 5 Weapons/Armor in for 1 Festival Item (weapons, armor, and feathers)
- Suggested to collect 50 Feathers before Gala Opening
- Gala Ball begins Feb 21, 2017 at 12:00 PM
- Dress well!
- Help Ana! Something's gotten her worried...

The yearly Serpent Festival and Gala Ball of Quetzal Palace are incoming! Like all events, this event will kick off at 12:00 PM Furvilla Time on the 14th, and will last two weeks. During the first week of the celebration, the serpent will touch down on Furvilla's mainland to meet and greet other villages. There, you can exchange unwanted mini-pets for exclusive festival mini-pets, and weapons/armor for exclusive festival weapons/armor, as well as Serpent Feathers (the currency of the Gala Ball).
This festival will feature a shop where you can exchange your Serpent Feathers for festival items--villager plushes, furniture, and super-rare and rare festival pets if you would rather outright buy them with Feathers than rely on the RNG. The shop is part of the Gala Ball, which begins on the 21st. This gives players a week to hoard their feathers, then another week before the end of the event to collect as many as they want to get all the festival items!
Don't forget the mystery begins at noon as well! Good luck trying to solve it - and be sure to work together!
More information will be released when Ana stops by tomorrow! Have a good evening!

February has come, and with it, the introduction of a new round of mini-pets for the FurDollar Emporium. These new monthly mini-pets follow a new system with the goal of retaining their value!
We have heard the concerns of customers who purchased FD mini-pets in the past and their disappointment that breeding has resulted in their purchase losing its value increasingly over time. We want our customers to feel confident that their purchase will retain its value, even potentially increasing in value. Therefore, we have decided that starting with the February mini-pets, FurDollar Emporium mini-pets will be unbreedable species, ensuring that the investment a customer makes will not decline in value due to breeding. Any past mini-pets released through the Emporium will remain as they were, as this change affects only new and future Emporium mini-pets.
Players can now obtain rarer colors for an Emporium mini-pet species by opening a box, found for each new mini-pet species in the Emporium. The boxes for each respective mini-pet have a 40% chance of opening into a common, 30% chance of opening into an uncommon, 20% chance of opening into a rare, or a 10% chance of opening into a super rare. Boxes are also priced at 250 FurDollars, a reduction from past prices.
The Aquaticat species is the first of the new Emporium mini-pets, shown from common through super rare.
The Rapti species is the second of the new Emporium mini-pets, shown from common through super rare.
The Moth species is the third of the new Emporium mini-pets, shown from common through super rare.
The Chipmunk species is the fourth of the new Emporium mini-pets, shown from common through super rare.
The Caterpillar species is the fifth and final of the new Emporium mini-pets, shown from common through super rare.
These new boxes will not entirely disappear at the end of the month. We plan on putting all Emporium mini-pet boxes inside of a larger box called the Retired Box, which will dispense one random box from a past month. The Retired Box will be available at a higher price, but gives players the chance to obtain mini-pet boxes from past months if desired.
Save up your weapons, armor, and unwanted mini-pets, because the Serpent Festival is coming to town on February 14th. The Serpent Festival is Quetzal Palace's yearly special event. During this event, the serpent that carries the Quetzal Palace village on its back will land on the mainland of Furvilla. During this period of time, villagers from all over are welcome to make offerings to the serpent in hopes of being rewarded with something cool.
The upcoming festival will involve some new mini-pet species from the serpent, a special shop to purchase festival related items, new villager colors, new villager costumes, and last but not least... a mystery! Will you be one of the first one hundred people to solve the mystery and earn a trophy from the festival?
But that's not all! We have two weeks before the festival starts, and some other cool activities are coming down the pipeline. Sources say that Crafters will be getting a new type of item to craft, one that should keep all of you crafters busy! What could it be? Hm... we'll find out soon! ;)

It's the Furvilla Global News Network (FGNN), coming straight to your town from its headquarters in Tigereye Peak! This is Anchorman Frostbite bringing you all the finest news from around the Furvilla globe. Today, we've been getting reports from Dragonsmaw Manor that the dog invasion continues!
So many dogs! So much bork!
Rasui is not to be left behind, and has been reported as handing out plushes of all the new dogs. The dedication he shows to his craft should inspire all! Or maybe he just really likes puppers...
In other news, a great many of you villagers from all around the globe have been writing in for item codes! It seems that your requests have not gone unheard! FGNN is happy to report that item codes have been reported as going out with packages from the Furvilla Store!
Our information shows these plush come from item codes sent out with the equivalent item in the store.
But that's not all! It appears that brand new village home Wall Art has appeared! Why hang that print on one wall when you can hang it on two? A Wall Art item has been reported as coming with every print obtained from the store. We've also heard that some of you out there listening were responsible for this neat idea!
That's all for this newscast, and always remember, stay fluffy, Furvilla!

With this news post, we are pleased to announce we will be bringing our convention booth to the online world. As we are cutting back on the number of conventions we plan on vending at in 2017, we thought it was only fair to offer these goods online to Furvilla Fans who want to obtain them! So without further ado, we have established... The Furvilla Store!
The Furvilla Store features the majority of the prints we offered at conventions:
And the custom ID cards that we offered at select conventions earlier in the 2016 year:
But not only that, it also includes our custom run of Furvilla plush toys:
We've heard your suggestions for additional plush toys. We're very interested in releasing a Gembound and Snuffle plush, however, we definitely need our existing Furvilla plush stock to sell out first. Every plush you buy will bring us closer to being able to order new plush toys and bringing them to all of you. If you have any other suggestions for species plush you'd like to see, feel free to leave a comment!
To celebrate the release of The Furvilla Store, we have some discount coupons to share with you that you can enter when checking out:
TAKETWENTYFIVEOFF - $25 off orders equal or above $100
TAKETENOFF - $10 off orders equal or above $50
We offer shipping to both the United States and international locations. However, we also offer free convention pickup for patrons that attend the same conventions we do, which you can view here and on the checkout page: Convention Appearances.
The newest stock of Forum Vistas have appeared in the FurDollar Emporium as well!
Have a fantastic day!
