Welcome to Flora and Fauna fest!

Flora & Fauna Fest: 2023

What is Flora and Fauna fest? 

Flora and Fauna fest is a yearly event celebrating the coming of spring and awakening of nature all across Draelvary! After a long, cold winter, all sorts of creatures are coming out of hibernation and making themselves known!
Introducing: the Wild subtype!
This fascinating event-rarity subtype has access to a whole host of new traits that can be found during the spread of March through April, the time when Flora and Fauna fest is going on all over! These interesting Plush Dragons are found exclusively, well, in the wild! Wild type Plush Dragons are keenly tied to nature, down to the way their eggs appear to the traits they display! 
Wild subtype traits are innately nature involved and related, you’ll see lots of traits pertaining to plants and animals respectively! From flower petals for wings to Hercules beetle horns, there’s all sorts of fun new traits to take a look at! Now your Plush Dragons can be made of fire, water, stone.. they can fly about the Sunflower Fields with Elytra Wings or climb the forest trees with ease using their Pawsome Paws! There are so many pawsabilities for your Plush Dragon to really become one with nature, and we're sure you'll love finding each and every one of them!
In addition to these traits, you’ll see that St. Luce has been hard at work crafting up some new recipes to share with you and your Plush Dragons! There’s lots of fun new items to craft and gather, and lots of new ways to access some items and traits. Expect more recipes to come out slowly with our rollovers, we’re working hard to keep your paws awfully full! 
We've also seemed to uncover a strangely magical new place hidden away in Draelvary! The Enchanted Forest is similar to mining, though it's much more mysterious. Make sure to grab your Foraging Kit every day and open it to uncover the forest's secrets... or maybe just take home a cute new buddy from your travels! So many new abilities, traits, and items are just waiting for you to uncover them from the forest's depth!
A more in-depth guide will be coming soon to further explain and expand on traits, so remember to check the site often for more upcoming news!
And what better way to celebrate this new event than with a Draw-To-Adopt? We’ll be announcing more details soon, but this DTA will run from March 10th until April 28th! Stay tuned for further details!
The updates just keep coming! Plush Parties will begin again the weekend of March 10th. Keep your eyes (and party hats!) peeled for more info coming soon!
The Enchanted Forest Foraging should be open no later than 03/05, but we'll let you know as soon as its open! 
As always, we have new puzzles with new goodies awaiting you this month, so don't forget to pop by the prompts and see what's waiting there for you!

Vela’s Valentines 2023

Posted 9 months and 4 weeks ago :: Last edited 9 months and 4 weeks ago by solarseraphim

Good afternoon, Plushies!

This month we have *Saint Vela* back in Draelvary again! If you’ve never met her, she’s a bubbly, energetic Plush Dragon, and the eldest child of Solemn and Somber. She’s devoted to love and every form that it comes in, and lots of Plush Dragons try to take her offerings to get her favor!

With the beginning of the month we have Vela’s Valentines open! Functioning similarly to our Secret Santa event, you’ll fill out our google form here!

Then, our lovely Yue will pair you up with someone to do an exchange of art!

Sign ups open today 02/01, and close on 02/08 at 11:59pm EST. We’ll be looking for pieces to be posted from 02/25 to 03/10, just to make sure everyone has lots of time to work on their pieces!

Art for this exchange does *not* have to be inherently lovey-dovey, unless it’s requested!

We hope you’re as excited as we are!

February News Letter

Posted 10 months and 11 hours ago :: Last edited 10 months and 11 hours ago by solarseraphim

Happy February, Plushies!

It’s hard to believe January went by so darn fast, but here we are! As usual, we have a fun set up of new monthly puzzle prompts for you to poke around and explore for some fun goodies! 💖

And since it’s February once again, that means Vela’s Valentines will be returning! So stay tuned for an announcement all about it later today!

It is still a chilly winter in Draelvary, but spring is almost here! If you’re trying to get any of the benefits or rewards from our winter prompts *February is the last month you’ll be able to them until next winter*! On top of this, please remember Cherub Traits go out of stock when Winter ends as well, so February will be the last time you see them for quite a while!

We have some rather *love*ly prompts returning this month as well, so your Plush Dragon can show their appreciation to their special someone! We encourage you to stop by and check it out!

Our announcement is a little short this month, but trust us that we can feel something rumbling about for when spring comes.. we hope you’ll be as excited to see as we’ll be to share!

January Newsletter: Happy New Year 2023!

Posted 11 months and 11 hours ago :: Last edited 11 months and 11 hours ago by solarseraphim

Happy New Year, Plushies!!!

We’re so sincerely excited to have had each and every one of you with us last year, and can’t wait to get to share with you everything we have planned this coming year as well!

January is here, and that means every Plush Dragon in Draelvary is here and ready to celebrate the Light Festival once again! If you haven’t been in Draelvary for the Light Festival before, we definitely think you’re in for a treat! This festival is all about celebrating the New Year and ringing it in as loudly and excitedly as possible! With the Light Festival comes the return of access to the Lux subtype of traits, traits for Plush Dragons who really love to show off their inner and outer spark!

Winter is still going strong through Draelvary, and it sure doesn’t seem like this snow will be letting up anytime soon, so be sure to bundle up when you head out to play!

While you’re out and exploring Draelvary, be sure to stop by Cut & Stitch so PawPaw can hand out your very first gift for this year! He’s been working pawfully hard on them!

There’s some fun returning prompts this month, as well as some new worksheet prompts our staff have put together for you. Be sure to stop in and check them out, word searches are such fun!

We hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year! We look forward to seeing you all in Draelvary again this year, and I know Confetti does too!

*Thank you for being here with us! 💖*

December News Letter

Posted 1 year and 11 hours ago :: Last edited 1 year and 11 hours ago by solarseraphim

Salutations, Plushies!

We hope everyone had a wonderful November, and a fabulous fall season! As we say goodbye to the scent of pumpkin spice and autumnal costumes and decorations, we welcome in Winter to Draelvary! The first snow is already here, dusting the most northern areas in a delicate powder! What a sight to see!

Since the events of Permafrost last year, Celeste has found a happy permanent home! If you weren’t here for the four part quest last year, don’t fret! Permafrost is back again and will return each year for the entire Winter season!

Since the weather seems to have returned to normal, the Herald of Winter has returned! Frostfall Wayfarer, as she’s often called, had her hooves absolutely full last year, so she wasn’t seen around Draelvary! With her return to her normal duties you’ll also find her partner, Saint Polaris not too far behind her!

Given that December tends to be a busy month all over, we have no Paws On prompt this month, or a word search/crossword/word scramble. December has lots of holidays in it throughout the world, and with the amount of other activities coming this month we elected to leave them out, we hope you can understand!

We sincerely hope everyone has a wonderful month, and as always hope to see you enjoying what Draelvary has to offer!

We’re in #help in the discord if you need us as always, thank you!

November News Letter

Posted 1 year and 1 month ago :: Last edited 1 year and 1 month ago by yuewithluv

Happy November, Plushies! Hauntober has come and gone, and we hope you had lots of fun with the festivities~! It seems the Monstrous Werewolf Companions have all been rounded up, and all the rogue spirits have been dealt with, thanks to everyone's help - St. Cerridwen & Sybil sicerely thank you for your aid! It also seems like Lush Plush is no longer stocking Haunted Trait Items, but there's always next year! 🎃

The last month of fall won't be featuring any special events, but you can still enjoy the rest of the season with the new prompts we've prepared for you! Why don't you go take a look?

We've also got some new exclusive items in rotation at The Regal Parlor, our Pawtreon exclusive store! It features a special currency and a selection of items that changes every month, so if you'd like to shop there, consider pledging to the Pawtreon - for that & many more goodies you can't get anywhere else~!

We hope you all have a lovely month, and enjoy the rest of fall - the winter months will surely have much in store, but for now, sip your pumpkin spice lattes and decorate for the season while you still can! 🍂🍁🍂

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to drop by #help in the Discord server!

Hauntober News Letter

Posted 1 year and 2 months ago :: Last edited 1 year and 2 months ago by solarseraphim

Happy Hauntober, Plushies!

To start off this very spooky month, we have a Hauntober Scavenger Hunt!

If you were with us for Hauntober last year, you’ll probably be pretty familiar with Monstrous Form, but we’ll give you an extra run down, just in case!

What is Monstrous Form?

Monstrous Form allows your Plush Dragon to take on different forms! These forms are often a larger, more terrifying version of their normal appearance, but that’s not the only thing they’re used for!

Does your Plush Dragon want a third eye? Some extra wings? An extra body part? These are all very possible with this trait! It can shift around their color palettes, although the design must still resemble itself!

Monstrous Form Plush Dragons can swap between their forms at will, and if they obtain enough items can even have *multiple Monstrous Forms*!

If you’re interested in gaining a Monstrous Form, it sounds like you’ll need to be **Seeking the Moon** in the Event Prompts tab! 🌙

In addition to the return of Seeking the Moon, we have a new event quest line; Shadows Within. This spooky story has to do with our proper Hauntober Host, Cerridwen! Cerridwen, who often goes by Cerri, is a kind but mischievous Plush Dragon. She knows just what it is that goes bump in the night, and she wants to teach you too! Drop by our event quests to say hello and see if you’d like a peek at what she has to teach you!

Hauntober is an exciting and very busy month for most Plush Dragons, as so many love to dress up and spook each other! We sure hope you’re as excited as we are to join in on the fun!

If you have any questions, as always, we’re available in #help in the Discord!

**Happy Hauntober!!**

Pawtreon Launch!

Posted 1 year and 2 months ago :: Last edited 1 year and 2 months ago by lunaire
Good evening plushies!
We come with great news!  Our PlushScouts Patreon, also known as Pawtreon, is officially launched, and we couldn’t be more excited! There are multiple tiers available, with no subscriber cap! Please visit the link below if you’re interested, and want to see what Pawtreon has to offer!  
With the launch of our Patreon, this does mean discord server boosters will no longer be shown previews of designs, companions etc. as we felt that would be a great incentive for our patrons. However, boosters will still receive their booster goodies!  
As always, thank you all for being here in PlushScouts with us. We couldn’t do this without any of you!  
-Lune and Sunnie

September News Letter

Posted 1 year and 3 months ago :: Last edited 1 year and 3 months ago by solarseraphim

Happy September, Plushies! Todays update has some very exciting information, so stick around!

At this time on site you may have noticed a total of three news posts! Why so many? Well!

In this month of September, the beginning of Autumn and the Harvest Season across all of Draelvary, we’re trying something a little different!

There’s no big, bustling event this month, especially since last months PDOTM sure kept everyone pawfully busy, but we do have a couple of contests!

(And if you managed that crazy feat of drawing all of the mod team’s featured PDs, stay tuned this upcoming week for Solemn and Somber to bring by a special gift! Rumor has it, it’s a very delicate parcel!)

Those who have been with PlushScouts for a long time will no doubt remember the “Build a Buddy” contest from 2019! It was such an exciting event that we’d like to try to hold it annually, so everyone gets a chance to participate! Be sure to check out the Build a Buddy News Post for more info! 📰

But that’s not our only contest this month! Confetti and Lune think it would be a lot of fun for there to be a contest to create a new animated icon for our discord group! Be sure to drop by and check out the Animated Discord Icon Contest News Post for guidelines and w peak at prizes!

August has stepped away, and with it so have the Sea Bunnies returned home! The weather is cooling down and it looks like this is going to shape up to be a wonderful Autumn season! We’ve got a load of exciting new quests and prompts for you to venture out in, why don’t you go take a look?

Stay tuned for news about the return of Plush Parties this month! Cece’s been feeling a little under the weather but she hopes to be able to hang out with everyone soon!

If you have any questions, please feel free to drop us a line in #help in our discord!

Welcome to Pumpkin Spice Season! 🎃
