Hey folks, just putting up a quick notice for those of you that may still have some Candy Cane and Candle Fairies left over from our first Tigereye Peak Snow Festival! The Candy Cane Fairy and the Candle Fairy will be getting new items for the upcoming Snow Festival so the items they currently give out will be officially retired!
If you want any of the previous TEP event plush from the Candy Cane Fairy or any of the furniture from the Candle Fairy please be sure to use those and get your items by 11:59pm Furvilla time on December 14th, the item stock will be changing for the festival on the 15th.

Hi again everyone! Just detailing some information about what's been going on lately.
Unfortunately, we're still struggling to find a resolution for the missing pumpkin guts. We've a script ready, but it seems there's some discrepancies between player logs.
If you still have an active herbalist from the festival, and would like to contribute to this investigation, please post here with information regarding your pumpkin harvests; in some cases, it seems that not all harvests were logged (and, in some cases, no harvests were logged at all!)
Most of the issues surrounding candy overflowing inventories have been resolved. However, if you are still locked out of your inventory, please check here to try donate your candies without having to access your inventory.
If that doesn't work, please send a message to koafox directly.
We're still waiting for an update on Chester's Hat and the other rewards; I don't have a solid ETA for this right now.
We're looking to release custom item orders early in January. Keep an eye out for that!
I decided to delay NPC-Traveler largely due to Black Friday and now Furvilla's Anniversary. I expect him to arrive around Sunday for upgrade services.
The Warehouse event will be concluding at 12:00 on the 11th, Furvilla time.
Likewise, the Challengers will be resting for awhile at the same time. However, we've been beginning to hear howls in the distance...
Just a warning ahead of time, at this stage the Bell Fairies will be returning.
However, the Star Fairy will not be returning (as it currently does not function), and will likely be replaced with something else at this stage.
Additionally, the Candle fairy may be changed or replaced as well.
These plans may change, if anyone has any concerns about this please let me know!
If you were meant to receive a plush from the recent Black Friday sale and did not, please contact Admin-Mat as soon as possible!
Due to delays and concerns with other elements of the site, we haven't been able to rework the feast rewards. However, we haven't forgotten - the current plan is to replace the rewards in January; though this may change ahead of time.
That's all for now! Thanks for reading!

December is here (and has been for a couple days now!) soo you know what that means, it’s time again for new monthly goodies!
The December FD Pets are here! Let's check out what we have for this month...
First up we’ve got Batpaca! Fluff with a side of puff! Seriously though, they are soooo soft...
Horned toads? Nah, we got pretty literal here, enjoy the Bull Frog!
And last, but definitely not least...Let’s welcome the Carat Cat!
FD Pets can be obtained from the FurDollar Emporium. They have five day breeding cool downs and are available for breeding until January 1st, when a new batch of FD Monthlies will be released.
We’re bringing back some of our normal contests for the month, there have been a couple changes in the prizes and timelines for these so be sure to give them a look!
Winter Writing Contest
Winter Art Contest
December Paintie Contest
-Coding delays have unfortunately been causing some issues in getting the DMM Event prizes and trophies sent out but we are working to get these to all of you ASAP. We appreciate your patience!
-Black Friday Plushies should have been delivered to all that made qualifying purchases, codes emailed out for those that purchased merchandise from the FV Store and plushies delivered directly here on site for FD purchasers. If you DID NOT receive your plush or code for whatever reason please file a report here on site so we can look into the matter.
-Also, we know people are still anxious for the Species Contest announcement but unfortunately things have been pretty hectic for us behind the scenes here. There are some details that need to be worked out with the contest participants before the winners can be officially announced to the public. We’re hoping to get things all settled soon and you have my apologies for all the delays.
We’re all looking forward to bringing you the second annual Tigereye Peak Festival this month and hope that you all enjoy it as much the second time around! And for those joining us for the first time for this festival, we welcome you and think you’re going to have a lot of fun! Now if you’ll excuse me I really need to get back to preparing, the days seem to just be passing by so quickly!
Thanks for reading, see you all again soon!

Black Furrrriday is here, which means an entire weekend of amazing deals!
ID Cards are back in the Furvilla Store, but that’s not the coolest news…
Use the code BLACKFRIDAY at checkout to receive 50% OFF YOUR ORDER. That’s right, everything in the entire Furvilla Store is discounted 50% off with this code, including the plushes (which are $10 with the code), the ID Cards ($6), the keychains ($5), and buttons and stickers ($1). There’s something for everyone there!
FurDollar purchases will be including an extra 50% FurDollars with every purchase, putting them at the following levels:
$4.99 - 750 FD
$9.99 - 1,575 FD
$19.99 - 3,225 FD
$49.99 - 8,250 FD
$99.99 - 17,250 FD
Grab them while you can! This will last until Tuesday morning (12:01 AM)!
Some pretty Black Friday themed items have shown up in the FurDollar Emporium! They’re 50% off their original price of 2,000,000 FC (no, we don’t know where the scarf is). They can be equipped to your villager to make them pretty like the dress and suit of the Serpent Fest, so they’re not completely useless. How can you argue with something 50% off? Come on, it’s Black Furrrriday.
This pretty Gembound is the Black Rose Gembound, an exclusive for Black Furrrriday. It can be found in plush form in the FurDollar Emporium! The plush is available for 2050 FD, but we’re also including the magical plush with any purchase of $20 or more* between now and Tuesday (12:01 AM on Tuesday morning). This includes FurDollars AND Furvilla Merchandise, but only to individual orders $20 or more (without shipping).
Please allow us some time to review purchases as we continue through the weekend so we can send the Black Rose Gembound plushes out! Also, if you order from the Merchandise store, please be sure to put your Username and User ID in your order notes to claim a Black Rose Gembound.
* = $19.99 counts too
We even have an alternate version for those of you (ahem some staff members) who wanted a blue version!
This can be applied with a Paintie Ticket to your Black Rose Gembounds at your leisure.
Have a great weekend, Furvillians!

Hi again everyone!
Just catching everyone up on the goings-on behind the scenes.
First off, we're working on a solution for pumpkin guts. It should leave most people with roughly the same amount of pumpkin guts - the values will be generated from your herbalist logs, and then adjusted based on your purchase/sale logs.
This process won't be perfect, and we'll have a thread open for case-by-case solutions when we're at that stage. Please note that this is just the current plan, and we may need to consider other options - we'll keep players informed of any changes, however.
Unfortunately, the 2017 Jack-O-Lanterns cannot be restored this way, and is a lower priority over all. However, if you've lost a significant number of the collectible version of the Jack-O-Lantern, we can look at restoring them manually. Please PM me directly to do so.
We're looking to add a consume all candy button as a temporary solution to overloaded inventories.
Due to feedback, you'll instead be able to donate all your food items in your inventory to the food drive in a single click. This is currently on the top of the coding list.
The Pumpkin growing competition's conclusion has been delayed, with the new target date being the 21st of November. Please note that the Hat / Pies may not have their functionality ready by this date, but will still be awarded at this stage.
The Dragon's Maw Festival will officially conclude on this date as well, with the following occurring:
- There will be a second purge of pumpkin-related items (excluding Pumpkin Guts and 2017 Jack-O-Lantern collectibles).
- The Candy Shop will be closed; left over points will be lost.
- Per above, the competition rewards will be distributed.
- We will all be free!
This is unfortunate but not unexpected; custom items will be delayed until after the above issues are resolved. Details on this will be revealed next week.
Following Dragon's Maw event's closure, there will be no new major events for a time while we work on other on-site issues. However, the existing events will appear at their scheduled intervals (such as the snow festival), with some balance and mechanic tweaks.
Explorer & Warrior events will still appear regularly.
Unfortunately, in perhaps the saddest news of all, our soup overlords are moving on to new lands.
You'll have a week to purchase Soup Vistas and Stickers from the recycle shop before they retire (don't worry - they're retiring to a life of luxury).
We've been having a lot of issues with bugs lately, and consequently we've had a lot of bug reports. We've had a flurry of reports on the same issues, and this makes it difficult to isolate reports on unique issues so we can target and resolve them, especially if we can do so without additional coding.
Before you submit a bug report, please check out this thread.
If you have a pressing technical issue that has yet to be resolved and isn't on the above list, please PM me directly.
If you have a community related issue that remains unresolved, please contact Admin-Mat .
A certain.. friendly NPC is going to help out with item upgrades in the mean time, for a modest price. Keep an eye out for their post if you're looking to increase the potency on some of your items (or add new sockets).
This little devil is going to get a hard-counter item. Keep an eye out for that too!
The new "Warehouse" exploration event had an issue where it was incorrectly generating items that it shouldn't of been. I'll be looking to take it down briefly tomorrow to update the list of items it can generate to specific ones instead of generic "Reagents".
That's all for now!
