FAQ

What is The Muskrat?

The Muskrat is basically a blatantly plagiarized combination of Randomism and various serious newspapers, like The Onion. Nothing we do is original in any way. Unoriginality is coincidentally the second most important requirement for legitimate journalism (the first requirement is a messianic sense of persistent self-validation despite all harm caused. We have this, too).

Who is involved?

There are two people involved. In no particular order (except awesomeness) they are:

El Borracho, your friendly drunken aristocrat. He writes, codes, makes pictures, talks to people, and speaks in third person.

The Other Guy, also known as Rev. Filbert "Red Herring" Ydalv, is the shy one, much like George (or Ringo) of some band that nobody knows or cares about anymore. He writes, codes, makes pictures, and sometimes talks to people, but not a lot because he's supposed to be "the shy one". He has a reputation to keep.

These are probably not our real names, even on Furcadia most of the time, but as journalists, it is our duty to deceive you.

Fine, I guess there are also a small army of reporters, photojournalists, and illustrators. Some of them actually do more than us, but that's a secret the world will never know.

Since they are payed only in Furcadia cookies and bottles of stale fermented wrestler sweat (goes very well with an entrée of sautéed brusséels sprouts), we feel that the most dedicated of the underlings should get some sort of inadequate mention.

In no particular order, they are: Kiyichichi, Damadar, Auora, Chibi Edward, Chaos Nake, The Masked Elf, Xxysthstris, Ahezhara, Pods, Kittyloaf, Honcho, and [INSERT YOUR NAME HERE].

Why "The Muskrat"?

We don't really remember why we picked that name. It probably had something to do with divine inspiration, Satan telling us what to do, whatever.

How can I join The Muskrat?

You can't! There's nothing to join! You can send us stuff, though.

Where's The Muskrat Dream?

There's an unofficial Muskrat dream by Nash, Kittyloaf, and Kiyichichi sometimes up in AI or somewhere. It's pretty cool.

OIC?

Bananas are a great source of potassium. Potassium helps build muscle
power and keeps your body fluids in balance.

For the love of all that is furry, what's happened to the Furcadia I once loved?!

It exploded in a massive volcanic eruption, sank into the ocean, and is now an underwater SpongeBob-themed Build-a-Home. Good question, thanks for asking!

So, is The Muskrat dead now or something?

Yeah, it's mostly dead. It lasted a full year (exactly) before the ship went down with all hands. There may be a few survivors, though, bobbing to the surface on crude, badly constructed rafts. Check back every few months, you might find something new. Don't bet your hard-earned or hard-scammed dragonscales on it, though!

You can also see a lovely comic called Guardianman here. This was a noble experiment we tried for a while, which ended just as it got interesting.
