|How do I get a new portrait?
|Every premium avatar comes with its own set of portraits, or you can get a Portrait Space and fill it will your own art. There are many free portraits available on the web, and many Furcadia artists who can make you a custom portrait of your Character for DragonScales. Check out the Furcadia Forums to find an artist to commission. Please be careful to only upload art that you have permission to use.
|What is a Character?
|A "Character", in Furcadia, usually refers to your furre's name and all the information that goes with it. Along with the name, this includes your description, colors, avatar, Digos, back story, and the personality you project. This can be as simple as calling yourself Bob and playing your Real Life (RL) personality with a tail, to very elaborate Characters with a fictional title, family, appearance, possessions and complicated back story. Sometimes on Furcadia your Character is referred to as your Furre.
|Can I have more than one Character?
|You can have 10 free Characters per account (email address), and as many additional Characters as you want that have a minimum value of Digos on them. It is important to know that you are identified by your email address and your Character name. You can change everything about your Character except for the name. You have to make a new name to have a new Character. Those names are attached to your email address.
|How do I make a new Character?
|To make a new Character, you need to first close the app and start it up again. When you get to the Connect Screen, press the + in the upper right corner. It asks if you want to create a New Furre or grab an existing one. The existing Characters will be ones that you made on another iPhone or on a PC. Tap the New Furre Button and follow the easy instructions! Choose a good password and make sure you use a valid email address, or you will not be able to confirm your Character. You should then connect with your new Character.
|How do I delete a character?
|On the Connect Screen, tap the Edit button at the top left. Then tap the X button in the upper corner of the Character that you wish to delete. Even though you have deleted this Furre off your screen, it does not mean that it is gone right away. For a few weeks you can still get it back by choosing the Existing Furre Button on the Add Furre Screen and putting in the correct name and password.
|What if I forgot my password?
|In order to change your password you will need a valid email address. Go to the password retrieval form here. Fill out the form and follow the instructions in the email it will send you.
|What is a Furre?
|Furre, pronounced like fur, is often used as another name for Character in Furcadia. At times it will only refer to your avatar and other times it will refer to you in regards to being a member of Furcadia. For example: "He seemed like a nice Furre." or "What species is your furre?" or "Any furre may enter the Dream Contest!"
|Can I be a human?

Picking the right species to represent your personality can help you stand out in a crowd.
|What do I put in my Description?
|In deciding what you want in your description, you should first consider if you are Socializing, Persona Playing or Roleplaying. Someone looking to chat might put things about their interests "IRL", a funny quote or a list of their friends. A Persona Player usually includes a bit of Character info such as describing what their avatar looks like as well as adding a bit of RL info, such as a list of friends. A Roleplay description usually goes into detail about the Character and backstory and only has RL info if it is contained in OOC brackets. Remember that your description is your way of introducing yourself to others and creates the impression you want to make.
|How do I add links to my Desc?
|If you want a word in your description to link to your webpage or other URL simple use a bit of html when setting up your desc. For instance: If you wanted the word Furcadia to link to Furcadia.com, it would look like <a href="http://www.furcadia.com"> Furcadia</a>
|How do I edit my Character?
|While on the Connect Screen, tap the Edit Button on the top left and then tap the character you want to edit. Select the Edit Furre Button and follow the instructions there. You can change your fur, hair, badge and clothing colors as well as what species you are. The Dice Button will give you random clothing colors. You can even change your description there. Save and reconnect to show off your new look!
|Can I change portraits?
|To switch between the portraits that you have on your character, just "look" at yourself and tap your portrait to toggle through those you have. You are allowed more than 50 portraits in your collection!
|Can I be a special avatar?
|By using your DragonScales you can shop on Digo Market on the iPhone for premium avatars to enhance your Character. For a larger selection of avatar options, other Digos or more DragonScales you can shop at digomarket.com.

The benefit of Digo Market avatars is that they work anywhere in Furcadia, and their sales support the game!
|How do I change Digo avatars?

To switch between the avatars in your collection, open the Finger Bar from the Hand Button next to the Text Input Box. Tap the Next Digo Button that looks like butterfly wings to cycle through the Digos that you own.
|How do I use a magic effect?
|The Mythical avatars all have a special Magic Effect that you can see when you tap the Magic! Button on the Finger Bar. Some of the Magic Effects are animations like the Dragon Breath, Unicorn Glamour, and Phoenix Flame. Other Mythicals turn into different avatars for their Magic Effect, such as the Gryffe turning into an Eagle. The Kitterwing can change size to as tiny as a bird. The Mythical Kirin has the ability to ride a cloud for its special effect! The Magic Effects are what make the Mythicals some of our most sought after avatars!
|How do I change my name?
|Since your whole Character is identified by your name, you cannot change it. You can, however, create many new names and Characters. If you just want to fix the capitalization or punctuation in your name, you can do that here.

|Does this description make me look fat?
|No, although it does illustrate your wide range of interests. The key to such a well-rounded Character is to display a broad ability to handle heavy issues, both IC and OOC.
