What can I say about Furcadia? Well, it's a little chat room with graphics where you can choose to be a feline
, or lapine furre
. Later you can buy a Phoenix
, one of three different kinds of wings
, or a personal portrait for your little furre to have, but a lot of players don't bother. You pick your colors, make a description
, choose a name, and then are set loose on the unsuspecting denizen
s of Furcadia.
It is made by Dragon's Eye Productions and can be found at www.furcadia.com.
There are player
s who run around helping furres and get a special
badge. They are called either Beekins or 'People who are way too into this game'.
It has eight
main maps. Meovanni; a mostly non roleplay
map, New Haven
; for newbies and people who like it there, Vinca; the central map, where you can head to any of the others, Allegria Island; where people can post their own maps, called 'dreams
', Imaginarium; a roleplay map where people can post their dreams, Acropolis; a socializing map where people can post dreams, and Challenge
s; where you can do little activities and run maze
s and such.
Some people actually try to roleplay. I'm not one of them, so I can't say how good the roleplay is on Furc. Personally, I tend to stay in Meovanni and talk about things
. Some players... ok, a lot of players... are idiot
s. However, there is an ignore
feature. Now that I think about it, I sort of want an EDB
for Furcadia. Yeah, eat that guy! He's ANNOYING!
You are provided with a dream editor
and dragonspeak editor to make your own dreams. Dragonspeak is like the code
that runs the dream. You can do a whole lot of things with it, from color-changing floors to slot machine
s to a switch that moves furres when you walk into it.
There are also ways to make bot
s, furres who just stand there and respond to command
s, with a botmaker program. I made one once, but it's long gone and I remember nothing about it so I can't help you there.
Some players make very cool dreams where you can roleplay in Hogwarts
, or play murder mystery
games. Some of them, however, make dreams just so they'll have a private place to 'yiff
', or have cyber-sex.
Furcadia isn't too bad, but it's not for people
who expect to be able to chop things up
. So feel free to go check it out, but beware
