I'm temporarily taking up a mod position again to collect some input from whoever's still active here. We want to know what you, the community, want to see done with the site.

I can say that there will definitely be a major site overhaul, in which we will get a portal page, as well as sections for TERA and Guild Wars 2, with less emphasis on what this site has been up until now -- an Earth Eternal fansite. As Earth Eternal no longer exists, and likely won't anytime in the near future (if ever), we need to expand to welcome in new game communities. While this won't be a fast transition, Jackuul is currently brainstorming (in his limited spare time) on what can be done in the redesign, or what games we could promote, forum sections/designs of forum sections we could have on the site, and anything else site-related that needs to change.

It would be a great help if we could get some ideas from you guys, specifically if there are any other popular or up-coming games that have furry races and are likely to attract a following from the furry community. Anything helps, though, so post any suggestions you have here! :foxgrin:

Active is certainly a huge overstatement as far as i am concerned.... sorry for that.
but i did get on Tera and it seems to be a pretty decent game, i cant speculate as to if it will take off with other furs but i will say i has me debating on spending 60 bucks to buy it. i dont own a cc so its a rare thing if i buy anything online
id like to see a list or something that has furry themed games and content in other games.
to be fair this is how i found the last few online games ive tried so i guess im biased.
you could bill the site/have as eternal entertainment kinda like eeradio did after the first takedown?? just an idea.

Perhaps there should be a World of Warcraft section due to the fact it will soon have two furry races?

I actually hadn't thought about that one, but good point. It's definitely an idea I'll pass along.

I think someone here posted that they'd found a furry guild in TERA. It's not surprising, since the Popori have a very wide range of species you can customize them to be. I've seen raccoons, ferrets, cats, pandas, and I think I recall seeing one that looked like a beagle somewhere.

As for a list of games, yeah, I think Jackuul intends this site to be somewhat of a hub for MMOs that the furry community would enjoy, which is why we're asking to see if anyone knows of any others he could put up. Antilia, TERA, Guild Wars 2, and WoW (thanks to Silent) are the big ones at the moment, but if anyone can think of more, it'd be a great help!

Also, perhaps there should be a Second Life section, due to the large furry community on there? I am aware that there is quite a bit of adult content in Second Life, but yeah.

I don't know much about this game, but since you can play as a red panda (in various colors) I suppose it should count as something. I would suggest ToonTown as another "Furry" Family Game (without tails), but it's been having some issues lately. Anyway, I all I know is that, I think, it's Pay to Play. It's sorta of a family social game far as I can tell...

"Furry" Family Game: Pandanda

Not like we can limit to MMOs that require like a Nvidia graphics card. There are some Family-like MMO games out there that furries may like to join.

Of course not. There may be other games that we don't already have up that may not be big enough (playerbase-wise) to warrant their own big forums, but since this is going to be an all-around furry gaming site, it's good to have a lot of games that may appeal to the furry community. Not everyone's going to be playing TERA or Guild Wars 2, and Antilia isn't ready, of course.



As for Second Life, that could be an option. The only hitch with that is that this site needs to remain PG-13 (or even PG) because of Google Ads. They're pretty strict on what words they consider inappropriate. There is probably still a pretty big furry community in SL, however, so as long as people could remain relatively innocuous in their roleplaying or discussions (regardless of what goes on in-game), it'd be nice to try.

Perfect World International...I did play it for a relatively long amount of time a few years back, and there really didn't seem to be many furries around, but it's worth a mention, since Barbarians are particularly well-done, even if they're limited to 4 species, and Venomancers are akin to TERA's Elin race. Could be some interest.

I have a list of all these that are being suggested, so keep them coming if you know of any. :^_^:

Just popping in to give my two cents.

It depends what one classifies as a "furry" game; does it have to be completely composed of anthromorphic animal characters or can they just be a race among many and thus still act as an anchoring or rallying point (for a basic example, would World of Warcraft count due to the Worgen, Pandaren and Tauren?)?.

For the former, one suggestion that was brought up some time ago was "Skyrates," which has a good plethora of animal races (albeit the races are mostly a cosmetic choice) and while not exactly a standard MMO should prove different enough, as well as being completely F2P, to be suitable, at least as a discussion topic.
