Hello everyone! Welcome back from the downtime!
We have added several new features to the site, so please let me tell you all about them.
Villager Profile Changes
Our biggest change today is the expansion of villager profiles! All villagers can now hold up to 6 keepsakes and wear 6 outfits each. You may have 6 of the same item, or mix and match! There is no charge to expand your slots for these items - this feature is available to you right now.
We apologize for any impact profile re-arrangement may have on custom user CSS. The mod team has informed me that should your current CSS break any site rules due to these modifications, you have a grace period of 1 month to make needed changes.
If you don't currently use custom CSS, you need do nothing.
Wearable & Keepsake Buffs
Some Wearables & Keepsakes will now give your villager a small buff! Buffs are now displayed on your villager's profile in a color-coded way, which will inform you of your buff when hovered over.
Green icons are costume related buffs. Green also represents buffs acquired from Dragonsmaw Pies. Purple represents pet buffs, for example the Sweetiecorn cooking buff. Orange icons represent buffs given from outfits, and blue represents keepsake buffs.
We will be retroactively adding buffs to some keepsakes and outfits over time, as well as adding buffs to select items in the future. Please note! If your villager is already wearing or holding an older item that receives a buff, you may need to take that item off and re-attach it to your villager.
You may use the Item Museum to see all items that are now buffed!
For the sake of gameplay balance, we have added a rule to custom item orders which disallow buffs to be added to custom items. Staff may add buffs at their own discretion.
Questing Changes & New Prizes!
We have made a few changes to Quests which should help ease your burden and help you to yield more rewards
Quests now ask for less items overall and award more shards when completed based on your level. We have also added several new recipes to the quest shard shop, which create the following new outfits and keepsakes. Each of these new items will carry a small buff.
Tailors and Crafters will be busy!
Also available in the Quest Shop now are 4 new battle pets!
Winter came and went... :(
More Plush Have Arrived!
We have added more Shiftie plush! Magical Galactic Shifty Plush and Magical Primordial Shifty Plush have been added to the Fur Dollar Emporium. Their non-magical counterparts are also now available in the Quest Shop.
We are also regularly adding new plush to Plush Collector. Bees and Cows have been added recently, with more critters on the way!
Battlegrounds now display backgrounds while you are fighting! Huzzah!
Most villagers should now automatically face the monsters they are fighting while in a battleground. The direction your villager faces during battle may be toggled on their profile under villager info - edit. You have full control over which direction they face!
Dragonsmaw Manor Harvest Carnival News
We will be having another scheduled downtime on either October 18th or 19th to test features for the upcoming Dragonsmaw Manor festival. This downtime will be announced at least 24 hours in advance.
- Villager Profiles have been slightly re-arranged
- Villagers may now wear/hold 6 outfits/keepsakes each
- There is a grace period to adjust CSS on your villager profiles
- Quests have been tweaked and prizes have been added
- Backgrounds are now in the battlegrounds
- The direction a villager faces in battle can now be toggled while editing their profile.
- Downtime for DMM festival testing will be announced for either the 18th or 19th of October
That's another big news post, whew! I do hope you enjoy these features, and stay tuned for more!

Mystery Sticker 3 Pack!
Our main offering is our Mystery Sticker 3-Pack. These packs contain three random vinyl 3" tall stickers plus an exclusive in-game code for a Furvilla Sticker Pack Series 1, containing one of six magical stickers!
These codes are only available in mystery packs!
Is there a sticker you absolutely want, but don't wish to try your luck with a mystery pack? Well, we've listed each available sticker individually. All individual stickers are online exclusives, and are not available at conventions.
There are over 70 to choose from!
Some stickers, including the Royal Fox, Primordial Shifty and Furvilla Logo are not available in mystery packs and can only be purchased individually. This information will be marked in their descriptions.
Stick me anywhere. I dare you.
All stickers can be stuck on anything you like! Cars, laptops, lockers, book covers, folders... anywhere! They are waterproof and have beautiful vibrant art.
We also are carrying Furvilla badges! These are double-sided, laminated laser printed badges featuring many of Furvilla's species and costumes. Don't see your favorite yet? Don't worry, we will add more from time to time, if demand exists.
The Oracle Door Hanger - Get one FREE with any order!
Our final item, is the Oracle themed Furvilla door hanger. While you may order them from the store if you would like more than one, we are including 1 FREE door hanger with EVERY ORDER.
Every order placed will also arrive with a special trophy code to unlock the Super Shopper Trophy for your profile. This code is only available through our online store.
What a cute little bag!
Our shop is powered by storenvy, and we ship worldwide. Paypal or credit/debit cards are accepted. In order to provide the lowest shipping costs possible, some small items may ship without tracking. All proceeds from our shop go to funding content for Furvilla.com.
Questions about your order can be made through the contact us form right here on Furvilla, or through our store's contact form.
We realize that there may be a product that previous ownership carried that is no longer available. Should demand persist, we may add new products to our shop in the future, however our current primary focus is developing the game, not selling merchandise for profits. Thank you for your understanding and support!
Also, we are planning an on-demand shop which will carry items such as shirts. More information will be available as plans develop!
On one final note, you may notice we shifted a few things around on the navigation bar to accommodate a link to the shop. You may also use the contact us form to directly inquire about merchandise and Certified Furvilla Fan badge mailings.
Thank you so much for your patience while we set up shop, and please have an AWESOME weekend!

I am SO excited to finally reveal a project we've had in the works for several months now, three brand new costumes!
Graffiti, Feral, and Classic Cartoon!
Now, these costumes look a bit different from what you are used to seeing on Furvilla. We are expanding our artist pool by hiring various creators to do specific costume sets. The Graffiti Costume is gorgeously rendered by JagBull, our Feral Costume is the amazing creation of Kitchiki, and the Classic Cartoon Costume is brought to you by Mary Mouse.
Each costume will be starting with six species and future additions will be only drawn by their respective artist. This way, we can bring a wide variety of styles to Furvilla, as well as provide regular, varied content. We will also be working to provide costume options for popular and less popular species to help spread the love around.
All new costumes have bases available, and painties may be made for them using all existing paintie rules.
Please note! We will not be commissioning any artists to draw species not already represented in Furvilla or to add to any current costumes, as Kiwiggle remains our main artist. These new costumes, as well as our new festival-based stone items are additional expansion content that we hope you will enjoy.
So, how do you obtain one of these costumes? Well, tell your Tailors and Crafters their vacation is over and visit any village's costume and crafting shops to pick up some basic supplies...
Versatile Sewing Set and Versatile Fabric will stock in all villages, and you may pick up blueprints and all needed recipes for needed costume items in all village crafting shops.
Have you been making your dye?
From now until September 23rd, shop stock will remain unlimited. After that time, these items will restock as often as other sewing kits, fabrics, patterns and blueprints. So, stock up!
Current Costume Buff Pump-Up!
The news isn't over yet! Existing costume buffs have been given a raise to some buff percentages. Here is a list of changes:
Animal Husbandry: +20% chance of collection (up from +10%)
Construction Worker: +30% crafting & repairs (up from +5%)
Crafter: +30% crafting speed (up from +5%)
Alchemist: +30% crafting speed (up from +5%)
Blacksmith: +30% crafting speed (up from +5%)
Tailor: +30% crafting speed (up from +5%)
Cook +30% cooking speed (this is a new costume buff, separate from the 5% Magical Sweeticorn cooking buff)
Warrior, Blessed Warrior, Herbalist, and Explorer remain untouched as their buffs are currently solid. Doctor remains untouched as we redevelop the career entirely.
Summer Picnic Reminder
Picnic ends September 23rd.
Remember, our Furvilla Summer Picnic will be ending sometime on September 23rd. If you would like to use your invitations to get food, please use them before that date. Using Picnic Invitations after September 23rd will trigger a new explore event... one that might just have you pitching in to clean up after the festivities.
My final update is concerning the new Furvilla shop. We are currently in the process of finalizing shipping costs and stock listings. Look for our grand opening announcement sometime next week.
The shop will be small at first with inexpensive offerings as we determine demand for future items. At launch, we will be carrying Mystery Sticker packs, some single stickers, door hangers, and laminated badges. All merchandise will ship worldwide and sales go directly into supporting Furvilla.
A sample of the upcoming goods!
Thank you for your patience as we set up shop.
- New Costumes by various artists are here!
- Purchase Sewing kits, fabric and blueprints at your village's crafting and costume shops.
- New costumes may have painties created using provided bases, following all current paintie rules
- More costumes by various artists are on the way, Kiwiggle remains our main site artist for species and existing costume expansions
- Some current costumes have had buffs powered up!
- Furvilla's new merch shop will be opening next week. Sticker packs, door hangers and badges will be available at launch.
Whew! That's it!
And as always, we have a lot more in development for Furvilla's future. I hope that you enjoy this new content!

Quick Event Info
I am sure those of you that were here last year have noticed that the Oceandome Event Buttons from 2018 have made an appearance again this year! This is something you can expect to continue in the future for Festival Buttons and Stickers (distribution method to still be determined on these).
Other retired festival items may reappear as well but exactly which items will be at the discretion of Staff.
Happy, almost, Autumn!

It's that time again, time to spend your Plunder Points! The Oceandome Event Shop is stocked and open for business!
What are you still doing here, go buy things!!!

Hey guys, looks like it’s that time again! What time you ask? TREASURE TIME! The Annual Oceandome Festival Treasure Hunt is in full swing and it’s time to party! For those of you that have been here for past festivals, you will notice some small changes, mostly that we've done away with the whole Viking vs Pirate theme, so there is only a single ship upgrade path this year. The rest of the event is pretty much the same with a few added treats so read on to learn all about it!
Ready to get started with your treasure hunting? Get your Crafter set as your active, and head on over to the event page and pick a boat!
This is kind of a little boat though, huh? There may be sharks (there are definitely sharks), so you're going to need a bigger boat!
You’ll need to craft boat items to make your upgrades and we’re here to tell you right where you can find all the supplies to do that!
Some cool new recipes have shown up in your Crafter's career page (if you don't remember how to get there, click on the career shield next to your active villager!). You're going to want to craft Adventure Wheels to help you find the items necessary to craft your new recipes!
Adventure Wheel Fragments are found by exploring... So be sure to get your explorers all equipped and ready to investigate every crevice and overturn every stone! Soon as you have the necessary number of Adventure Wheel Fragments, you'll be able to craft an Adventure Wheel, and then you can find boat upgrade supplies and treasure!
**Adventure Wheel Fragments can also be found in both Under the Sea battlegrounds along with a few other goodies so be sure to check in with your Warrior for a bit of extra fun.**
Let's see who can build the biggest boat, huh? The bigger the boat, the better the plunder!
But what are you going to do with all that loot, you might ask? Well, aside from creating a sizable hoard like a sea dragon, you can trade in your plunder for special event items in the Treasure Trove! which will open in a week.
And it looks like it’s almost time again for the Leodon to make their migration to Oceandome... Perhaps as soon as within the next week!
An Aspen Invasion!
Hi everyone, Aspen here with some very special news for you!
Stones function similarly to magical plushes and stickers, however they are not collectible to keep in a gallery. When you use a stone on a villager, it will turn into a new species color! For our Oceandome festival this year, we are introducing the color Ocean Dreams.
These and all future stone-created villagers will have their bases available right here for you to create painties of your own! Once a stone has been used, it will lose it's magic and become a keepsake souvenir.
You will also get to visit with the Ocean Dreams villagers throughout the festival, both though exploring and friendly sparring in the battlegrounds! If you are lucky, one may give you a magical stone as a gift. Also, stones will be available at the end of the event in the shop, so don't worry if you don't find one right away.
Please note! Stone colors are not replacements for our regular artist, Kiwiggle. They are supplemental content which will be created by members of our staff team to add some fun and variety to our festivals. We hope you enjoy this new addition!
Recap Time w/Mat!
Just a few bits to wrap up here...But please be sure to read the whole news post, I know it’s a lot but it’s important stuff!
- The Treasure Trove Shop will open a week into the event on August 31st.
- You'll have one week after the event (Sept. 14th) to spend any remaining plunder points before the shop is removed and the points are lost.
- To get started on the event, all you have to do is explore. Note that drop rates & prices may be subject to change due to player feedback.
- If you didn't set a Crafter before selecting a boat and do not have the recipes as a result, they can be bought at The Recycling Shop
-Be sure to check out the Under the Seas battlegrounds for Adventure Wheel Fragments and other fun stuff! (Admin-Wisteria wants me to remind you that the drops from both grounds will be available in the event shop, purchasable with Plunder Points.)
- Event ends at 12:00 AM on September 8th.
**Viewer is not needed to use Adventure Wheels, it is just a keepsake item.**
Now get out there and get that treasure!
