The fireworks have spoken, and it appears a new year is upon us. Let's welcome January in by taking a peek at the new monthly minipets:
These little critters will be around until February 1st, at which time they will be removed from stock and a new batch will slide in.
All vistas that are currently in the FD Emporium will be retiring on January 7th. A new batch of vistas will be replacing them.

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 our reporters are live in multiple villages. Town Hall has been busy in Dragonsmaw Manor, Tigereye Peak, and Quetzal Palace today!
Dragonsmaw Manor saw the migration of five dog species and have reported that multiple dog species are still in the process of immigration. If you have a DMM friend, why not ask them to brew you a Canine Morphing Potion so you can be a dog also? Who doesn't want to be a dog, right?
Dragonsmaw Manor's mayor Dr. Chester has also reported that the plush collector Rasui seems to be giving out some new toys now. How's that for being on the ball? *barks*
Quetzal Palace has reported a new species of minipet has come to live in their clouds - the Flishy. Great for betta fans!
Our very own home of Tigereye Peak has a brand new species on the block too, the Pika!
That's all for this newscast, and always remember, stay fluffy, Furvilla!

Hello everyone, I hope you've all been having a great holiday season and are enjoying the festivities here on site! So with that in mind, I apologize for barging to interrupt, just a couple quick announcements and it's back to your snowball fights and fairy hunting.
The Paintie Rules have been updated once again, we hope that they are less of a chore to read now and easier to understand. Please be sure to check them out! For those of you that are sad to see the visual examples go, we will be working on bringing some of those back soon in a Knowledge Base article. We may even ask for your help so be on the look out!
Behind the scenes our Mod team has been working tirelessly to get Fur Idol more organized, bringing you guys rules to follow to help keep the competition fair, but this also means there will soon be consequences for breaking those rules. A new set of Fur Idol infractions will be added soon, a post will be made in the Change Log when they are officially in the system so please be sure to look for that in the near future.
On a funner note, Fur Idol will also soon be bringing you themed contests to spice things up once in a while! We love seeing everyone's creativity and hope that even more of you will consider participating and sharing your amazing entries with all of us.
It seems there has been some confusion over Paintie Tickets so we wanted to clarify that not all Paintie submissions require a Ticket. Paintie Tickets are simply another payment option, you can either use a Ticket or pay the 250FD fee, you do not need both.
Thank you for reading guys, have a great rest of the Snow Festival!

Some of the village mayors have updated their villages today! Polaria is busy with the Snow Festival so Tigereye Peak hasn't added anything new. Why don't you ask your friends in other villages what kinds of updates their villages have gotten? The mayors are enjoying the Snow Festival, so hopefully the rest of you are too!

Good afternoon to all the five villages! Please excuse my tardiness, these old bones ache a lot in the morning so it's hard to get moving. But despite that, dears, let me introduce myself to the rest of you. My name is Polaria, and I'm the mayor of Tigereye Peak. On behalf of my village and all its residents, we're excited to share the Snow Festival with you!
Around this time of year, the snow fairies come out of hiding play with the residents of Tigereye Peak. We've encouraged them to travel far and wide across Furvilla, so you'll be able to encounter them too! Each fairy has a special ability that'll bring a boon to your villagers. The abilities vary from giving you a cute holiday item to improving your village someway. If you're curious, they're easily viewable here.
If you didn't know, it was a Frozen Leaf Fairy that led the founder of Tigereye Peak to the mountain where we all reside. In the cold of the night, Samuel and his exploration party were ready to give up. But then there was a beautiful golden light, and Samuel followed it to the caves and mountain crags where we live now. Because of this, you often see Snow Festival trees topped with a golden tiger -- a tiger, because Samuel was a tiger, and golden, because of the Frozen Leaf Fairy's beautiful glow.
Fairies will befriend you while you explore or battle monsters. You'll encounter them easily at first, but as you collect a lot of fairies, they will slowly become more rare to encounter. But never fear, dears, this resets at the top of each day, so you can start finding fairies easier again at the beginning of the next day.
We have a lot of simply wonderful holiday furniture that you can obtain from one of the fairies. One tradition we have here in Tigereye Peak is to fill our homes with Snow Festival decorations, and we've made it into a bit of a contest. If you'd like to participate in the contest, decorate your home with Snow Festival items, and then post your home here in this thread. There are some cute little prizes for the participants! (Speaking of furniture, did you know a darling named Darkmoon Dancer is the one crafting all this furniture? She's so talented! What a dear!)
Even our villagers are getting into the spirit of the holiday. Why don't you try putting on the Fluffy Costume if you're a Gembound, Wickerbeast, Dutch Angel Dragon, Deer, Big Cat, or Snuffle? I'd love if you could bundle in something warm, because you know I worry about all of you, right? Now that the snow's drifting from Tigereye Peak, it must be so cold in those other villages... I know Olde Foxbury and Quetzal Palace are used to the cold weather, but I worry so much for you folks in Oceandome and Dragonsmaw Manor! The weather's usually so temperate down there...
There are a lot of cute outfits that our village is producing too, which you can dress yourself in when you're blessed by a Magic Plush. One of the fairies will give you one of those Magic Plushes if you ask it nicely enough! Darlings, please bear in mind these Snow Festival colors will be available only during this year's event, then will retire.
Since the snow is drifting down into the other villages, perhaps you'd like to make a new friend? Our Snowbunny and Snowfox population has simply exploded now that the Festival has come! We'd like to invite you to take one of each with you. Simply click on them to do so! During the festival, these snow critters breed quite fast, with cool-downs of one day. However, when the Festival is over, they will no longer be breedable. Please keep that in mind! If you're searching for the rarer colors of these pets, please be sure to breed them out during the fourteen days of the festival.
Last, we'd love to see how you decide to dress up for the festival! Therefore, we're having another contest, where you can show us your beautiful look, dears. Submit a Paintie to the contest that's themed with the Snow Festival to participate, and I might be congratulating you as one of the best dressed in the Snow Festival! Come participate here!
All of us here at Tigereye Peak hope you enjoy the Snow Festival!
All items retire on December 29th. Plushes and Furniture items will not be re-released.
Mini-Pets have a 1 Day Cooldown until 12:00 PM on December 29th, in which they become unbreedable and retired.
Fairies are obtained from the Explore and Warrior features, and begin with a 20% drop rate, decreasing by 1% with every fairy found to a 1% drop rate. This resets at the beginning of the next day. Fairies will drop until December 29th.
Contests (house and Paintie) end December 29th.
The current site theme will become an option for use after the Snow Festival as the game goes back to default layout.

WOOHOOO!!! Furvilla is launching!
After six months of beta testing, we are happy to welcome all of the furry fandom and beyond into Furvilla! To celebrate our launch, we're hosting a special referral contest with the help of Dandylions LLC, a super talented fursuit making company!
You can win a full suit, partial suit, or fursuit head by participating in our launch referral contest! Any referral you make between December 7 - December 21st is eligible toward the contest. The top three referrers will win a fursuit prize. Check out the page on the Launch Contest for more information (please note the sample fursuit is an example of what Dandylions LLC can make)!
December's Mini-Pets are now stocking in the FurDollar Emporium. These mini-pets have five breeding charges as commons and thirty day cool-down periods, so they should hold their value better! We will be swapping out the monthly mini-pets on the first of the month, meaning the next round comes out January 1st.
The Snow Festival is coming! All the villages of Furvilla will be celebrating the Snow Festival from December 14th - December 28th. During this time, you'll be able to collect items exclusive to this year's snow festival, like a new Furvilla layout skin, home decor, villager colors, plushes, costumes, special effect fairies, and more. Villagers of Tigereye Peak will also be learning a little about their village's backstory in the process!
Home decoration has come just in time for launch! If you visit your Villagers Page you'll see the option to remodel your villager's home so you can start decorating it. You can get furniture from your village's Crafting Shop and go to town with your decorations. Look forward to the Snow Festival's exclusive seasonal decorations as well!
The village mayors are getting comfortable in their new offices and are preparing to communicate with their villages for the first time! Expect each of the mayors to introduce themselves and their village, as well as their plans for the village's development in the next 1-2 days.
Here's to a fine opening!

Hello everyone! We’ve got some very exciting news to share with you, it’s time to Welcome our new Mods as an official part the Furvilla Staff! We’re very happy to have each and every one of them here now to continue on this journey with us. Opening the site is going to be a big job and having all hands on deck is a very important thing. Please be welcoming to all these fresh new faces when you see them around the site. They won’t be diving into any Mod work until launch but they’re getting their feet wet for now so feel free to say hello.
New Furvilla Moderators
*insert spectacular fireworks show here*
(we spent all the budget on streamers and cake for the party so let your imagination run wild)
Beta Content Rule
Another thing before we let you go, a new rule has been added to the Global Rules section regarding Beta Content so please go and give that a read. There is also a corresponding infraction for this rule addition. Be sure you are all up to date on the Furvilla Site Rules and TOS as we head into the Site’s Grand Opening.
This new rule will be going into effect at launch:
Discussion of, reposting of forum content, or screenshots about Beta activity is strictly forbidden by the TOS. Distribution of this information only serves to incite drama and will not be permitted. Exceptions to this rule are any remade threads for sales, role plays, knowledge base & guides, and site resources.
Edit: Moving farther into this, this rule is mainly to avoid reinstating all the drama and fighting from the Beta. Signatures stating that you were a Beta tester are fine. With the new MOD team coming in, I've adjusted how I want to go forward; less infractions for things we can talk to you first on, more community interaction, which hopefully will bring the community together more. Not literally everything from Beta is banned. If you're unsure about if a signature or screenshot you have will be okay, by all means, ask a MOD; Ask me. I dont mind, and neither do they. We're here to be a part of the Community.
And last but not least, all Container Items and Basic Weapons/Shields have been removed from Restock and returned to their original unlimited stock status.
Check the news post below for important Forum related information!

Hi everyone, just stopping by to talk to you about another step to prepare for our official site opening on December 7th! To start everyone off with a clean slate, we will be wiping all content from the forums and doing a bit of restructuring.
This News post is your 48 HOUR WARNING, the forums will be closed and wiped at Midnight Furvilla Time on December 7th so please be sure to collect and save all content that you do not want to lose. Once the forum clean up is complete you will be allowed to re-create any threads that you need to and resume your normal activity.
Thanks so much for reading and have a great day!
