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!

September Feast Minipets
Hoyalty Seeds are back again for September 2019, check them out below!
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!

"Hey! Hi there! You’re a friend of the Chief right? Yeah, you are, I totally recognize you, I’ve given you a cool drum thingy before!
I need some help, it looks like some more friends from back home have finally arrived and the Chief and Sage Ismene asked me to make sure they feel welcome...And you have a super nice, welcoming face so I thought you could help me out, just be friendly and all that, ya know?"
"Ok, now that that is settled, it’s time to meet the new friends! Introducing some big buddies with even bigger hearts, Elephants!"
"They even brought a little buddy along with them, isn’t it just the cutest? I hear these guys like to hang around that Fur Dollar Emporium place with that fancy pants Gembound so you can look for them there!"
"Oh! Wait, before you go you’ve totally gotta take one of these super cool books I found!"

Is it August already? Wow summer sure is flying by! I guess this means it’s time to show off the fun new monthly additions we have for you guys.
Check out the August FD Pets!
First up we have the Koala!
So elegant, in a profile view...the Harpy Eagle!
Hopping? through the treetops, it’s the Tree Kangaroo!
FD Pets can be obtained from the FurDollar Emporium. They have five day breeding cool downs and are available for breeding until September 1st.
July was the end of the Plantimal year, we had a great time bringing you fun plant related mini pets and we hope you enjoyed them too! Past seeds will start cycling back in each month now, just in case anyone missed them on the first go.
For August 2019 the Birb Bloom seeds will be available again! We have dropped the occurrence rate on these events just slightly since this is the second release of these seeds.
Just a quick reminder that contests will be ending very soon so get those last minute entries in for a chance to win some cool prizes!
Have a great day!

Updates are here, for players old and new!
Welcome to Furvilla, New Players!
Now, when a new player joins Furvilla, they are greeted by our very own Oracle during the tutorial!
I see all!
At the end of the tutorial, you are given a wonderful new box to help you start your Furvilla journey. This box is also available to all current players, by clicking the link below.
Full of surprises!
CLICK HERE TO REDEEM!
The box contains some slabs and seeds, as well as other starter items, but it also contains the following new items, to satisfy the seasoned Furvilla citizen...
Welcome boxes also contain a breeding potion and a pair of Brown Dromedaries, which are now breedable through the Animal Husbandry career!
To our new players, welcome to Furvilla, we hope you enjoy your stay here!
Summertime Battlegrounds Changes
We mentioned in a previous news post that the Golem battlegrounds would be back in Furvilla until September 23rd. However, we've decided to let them stick around forever in our new Mystic Caves and Mystic Depths battlegrounds. You can also visit the tiny golems in the new Mystic Gardens battleground for lower level warriors. All Mystic grounds are permanent battlegrounds, and feature art exclusively by our own MOD-Shroomy !
To make up for this change of plans, we've decided to let our friend, the Radical Golem's dreams come true. You can now fight this bad boy and his colorful ant pals in Fiery Invasion, which is scheduled to last until September 23rd.
By the way... have you been saving your orange, blue and green dye?
Keep an eye on our changelogs, as we will also be rotating in a number of battlegrounds throughout the year.
Hey guys, Mat here, just hijacking part of Aspen’s news post to bring you my new addition to the FurDollar Emporium., the Birb Pinata! This cool little paper birb will cost you 100 FD and contains some very cute and fun items.
Birb Pinata Contents
Take a look below at all the cool little things that you could get from the Birb Pinata (when opened the Pinata will give one of the below items at random).
The lovely rainbow of 8 Jumbo Gummi Bears above are some very special new food items, they are worth 100 Food Points each!
Have fun busting open those Pinatas guys!

Oh and - Aspen - too!
