Tomorrow night, November 3, shortly before 2 AM we will be going into downtime for maintenance related to Daylight Saving Time. The duration of the downtime will be for a little more than an hour.
Note that Furvilla time does fall back in accordance to the end of Daylight Saving Time. So in effect, downtime will start right before 2 AM Furvilla time and end right after 2 AM Furvilla time.

Hi everyone. I don't have good news this time.
We've discovered it was possible to generate a large amount of FurGems at a low cost, coupled with a secondary bug which allowed players to potentially acquire large amounts of FurCash.
While the latter case doesn't seem to have been exploited overly much, the former has been; as there was an associated cost with the limited item being purchased, the FurGems were not generated freely but still obtained in amounts exceeding what players would acquire through normal game-play.
The issue has been fixed for now and we're investigating cases of excessive FurGem acquisition. As a temporary measure until a final decision has been reached, it is no longer possible to purchase Warrior Elixirs from the Recycle Shop.
If you purchased "Rock Candy Skull Recipe Card" and recycled them in quantities greater than 100, please refrain from spending FurGems until this issue is resolved.
Apologies for the inconvenience and disruptions this has caused; we will extend the availability of the Dark Woods event battleground to compensate for the lack of availability of warrior elixirs.

Welcome, welcome! Come one, come all, step right up to my Haunted Carnival!
Oh get out of here Gremlin, you’re making the guests nervous. Now shoo!
Well then, now that that’s settled, let’s get to the festivities! It’s lovely to see our friends have come from far and wide to join us this year for the fabulous Dragonsmaw Manor Harvest Carnival! We’ve so much in store for you to do so be sure to listen closely lest you miss out on the fun…
Alarming Apple Bobbing
Follow the path and pay a visit to see Crimson Witch, she will be more than happy to allow you to bob for apples...But only once an hour, let’s make sure everyone gets a turn!
This cauldron belongs to the Crimson Witch, step right up to see what mysterious things she has in store...Put in some spooky items and get something spooky in return!
Step up courageous Warriors, help us defend the Carnival from the beasts that dwell within!
Kieran from the Cozy Cookery has come to help us feed the masses. Go ahead and offer him a helping hand, he’s always willing to offer a nice reward in return. (recipe cards for the spooky dishes can be found in the Cozy Cookery)
Feeling brave? Well why don’t you explore the dark forest and see what treasures you can find! Just don’t get lost out there...Carnival staff cannot be held responsible for lost patrons, their belongings, or sanity.
If you love the limelight then join us on the Stage to show off your most frightening fashions. Everyone deserves a chance to be a Star! (this is an absolutely free raffle, please read thread carefully before participating.)
Spin to Win! Once every hour you can come by and try your luck at my Wicked Wheel, round and round it goes...Where it stops? Nobody knows! (we recommend using your Explore and Warrior career Villagers when spinning the Wheel as the afflictions it gives out will give Warrior buffs and different path access in the Frightful Forest.)
Follow the MAP to start your fun!
But don’t leave yet! I’m not quite done…
Trick or Treat
Generous neighbors are giving out treats! Pay them a visit (3 unique doors per hour) and collect that delicious loot! But beware of those sneaky tricksters, I hear they can be quite generous too.
Pawsitively Perfect Prizes!
"But Lucien, what will I do with all these tickets?"
You’ll use them for prizes of course! I’ll open the doors of my quaint little Shop on October 31st then close them again on November 14th, so plenty of time to earn tickets and shop! And please don't fret, I assure you that my prices will be quite reasonable.
And now I’d like to place you in the capable hands of the lovely Aspen for a moment!
Hey everyone, Aspen here with some spooooooky news concerning Dragonsmaw pies! These very rare delicacies were originally given as prizes for the 1st Dragonsmaw Festival. They have not made an appearance in Furvilla since then.
Furvilla's master chefs have finally reverse engineered the recipe, and they are sharing it with you! Best of all, everyone gets a recipe for free!
More copies of the recipe will be available in the prize shop.
Now, these powerful pies are tricky to make, and require many special ingredients which only drop during the Harvest Carnival. You may find the needed ingredients while exploring, participating in the carnival and battling in the event battlegrounds. These items will be available yearly.
Looks delicious already!
As a reminder, feeding a Dragonsmaw Pie to your villager will give them 1 random costume buff that they don't already have. Quite a powerful little pastry!
Oooh.. I have one more thing to add, before I forget!
Strange Magic Stones!
Be on the lookout while exploring for some magical colors. I hear there are some new stones in Furvilla which will transform your villagers into some very handsome magicians! Bases for these villagers can be found here under "Strange Magic Bases."
You may also fight these villagers in the battlegrounds to earn more carnival goodies for the duration of the event. Remember, stones can now be collected and placed in your new stone collection.
That is all from me, enjoy the festivities! Back to you, Lucien.
Thank you for that positive pie and stone related news Aspen! And now my patrons, I bid you a fond farewell...Have a wonderful time wandering around our lovely Harvest Carnival and getting into the spirit of the season! Good Day and good luck…
- Lucien Nightshade, The Ringmaster

This is just a little note to let you know we will be going offline at 11pm Furvilla time on Friday, October 18th so that we may test the functionality of the Dragonsmaw Manor Harvest Carnival. Once this testing is complete and all is well, we will announce which day we plan to start the festivities!

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!
