Hello!

If you're new to the Etla Isle Continuity, then you may be wondering what all this is. Etla is a roleplay community that has been growing since 2001 on the multiplayer roleplay platform of Furcadia. While the core game itself is more furry/anthro based, Etla has always been open to more imagination and has been home of a huge array of supernatural, fantasy, and mundane beings. Many of our players come from tabletop experience and use Furcadia as a place to more freely explore their characters' stories.

The benefit of the Furcadia platform is the visual aspect to an otherwise simple text-based roleplay format. I have spent countless hours over the past years collecting, adjusting, and creating new content for the world to keep the scenery fresh and engaging. I very much enjoy creating these small, isometric, pixel 'scenes' throughout both Eileadora and Valshiem cities that help to inspire and progress dynamic storytelling.

Why Patreon?

As Etla Isle is a continuity, the plot is ongoing and ever changing. We now host 2 of the larger cities on the island of Etla for people to be able to roleplay within a displayed setting. As stories progress, the cities are altered. People move in or out. Take up shops or start new businesses. Then, there are the occasional magical explosions that take out a building or two >.>

While a 'basic' setting could be built and the stories and roleplay left to the imagination, what has always set Etla apart is that the maps are regularly edited to reflect what is happening in the setting. Players have always had the option to have a home or shop customized to suit their characters and bring more richness to the experience. This does require a decent chunk of time to make these edits and to add to and update the item sets and digital assets to keep the cities evolving.

Patreon allows a way for the players to support my efforts in this continuous maintenance, while also gaining a few 'rewards' in exchange. Without the generosity of my Patrons, I don't know how this would all be possible. I am deeply grateful for their support and try to adjust this account to reflect the needs in the continuity as we progress. When we started we were updating from 8-bit to 32-bit, we've done a major map overhaul (a couple times) and added a new secondary RP location (Valshiem). The goals here will change from time to time but the overall support and expansion of the continuity will always be the focus here.

Valshiem Customization!

Valshiem is meant to be a steampunk setting, however there are few available steampunk patches. With regular support from our players I can spend more time focusing on new item sets and can customize the setting a bit faster. This also means more regular Patron-only patch releases and more livestreams.
