The Olde-World is a "[[EarthAllAlong Mock Earth]]" focusing mostly on Europe and surrounding countries. Airships powered by coal and made from Bugge body parts are cannon as are other SteamPunk accouterments. The well-established noble families known as the Greater and Lesser Houses are somewhat segregated by race and allow others not of the same race to marry in or join said house only if they follow the ban on carnivores marrying herbivores.

* AuthorAppeal - Furrabian Nights (Talzhemir, Emerald Flame), Felorin's Truth or Dare Pool, the forms of the Primes.
* AuthorAvatar - Watch the game carefully and you will find the staff sitting there, usually not in-character, commenting. They even have a chat channel for this!
* BarbieDollAnatomy - Especially in any map that is not rated "adults only".
* CarnivoreConfusion - Avians are considered non-sentient and acceptable as food for furres, yet the Phoenix is a playable race...
* DarkIsNotEvil - Out of Character, the Dark Primes are used as plot devices to stimulate roleplay. In-character, however, Tallus, was an "evil" god of prophecy and [[spoiler: only considered evil because he could see the apocalypse and refused to talk about it]]. Taglin Tigh is considered the king of the Dark Primes and the god of Nightmares, but [[spoiler: actually is friendly and helpful to anyone not a light prime. His main problem with the light primes is that they murdered Tallus in cold blood for no reason.]] He also is renowned as a "good father" to his many children [[spoiler: and often his own brothers and sisters. When seen in public with his less-sane family members, he is always taking care of them and preventing them from hurting anyone.]].
* [[GameBreakingBug Dream Breaking Bug]] - Line 5:2000 is supposed to reset a dream. Unfortunately, it does not take custom maps into account, but "resets" it to a map that is referred to by the server, still keeping the custom map's appearance. This results in rather surreal behavior, and has been a known bug virtually since the line was introduced in 2004.

* FantasticRacism
* {{Freemium}} - Possibly the UrExample; as you could buy wings since 1997. You need a flying character to enter one of the main maps (Zephiroth), but some of the special freebie digos can fly anyways.
* GayOption - Homosexuality is the main theme of some user maps. It is frowned upon (but not stigmatized) in Kasuria because it interferes with the widespread noble custom of arranged marriages.
* ImAHumanitarian - Drakorians think nothing of eating Furres, as do Unseelie Fay Furres and other intelligent "magical" races. This is considered "taboo" to illegal in most other lands.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice - Tallus
* InsurmountableWaistHeightFence - A surprising number of small items such as certain small plants and waist-high hitching posts can block your path.

* InterspeciesRomance - Although different species may marry freely, and (with aid of a potion) reproduce, an important law now bans carnivores marrying herbivores or omnivores if they are members of the nobility.
* LightIsNotGood - Most of the light primes aren't all that nice, especially if your character has any traits that go against their major themes.

* RetCon - The original terms "Half-Prime" and "Quarter-Prime" were changed in 2005 to "Demifane", a term which formerly referred to half-fey only. Now the term includes all "half-breeds", not just those who are descended from Primes, with "half primes" being marked as "mythological" and removed from character creation rules. Several of the Primes also changed species which was written in long after the initial material's first release to cover the "new species" in the game.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin
* SteamPunk - Airships are canon in the Olde World
* VideogameCaringPotential
* WingedHumanoid - You can purchase wings of varying types to go on default characters and most other buyable avatars have wings already.

Kasuria is ruled by a king or queen. Prejudice due to species is very rare, but the current ruler belongs to a political faction that has revived a taboo against herbivore/carnivore intermarriage. Non-addictive substances such as alcohol are common but addictive drug use/production/sales is brutally persecuted. In some ways, Kasuria is a {{utopia}}n land. Limbs can be regrown; debilitating diseases can be cured. Mind-magery, a sort of magical equivalent of psychiatry exists. This is the only continent where magic exists.

Incidentally, the webcomic ''[[DanAndMabsFurryAdventures Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures]]'' was created by a Furcadia player called Mab as a reward for a favor received from another called Dan, but has since gone its separate way.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: For the longest time, the only way to keep someone out of a dream was to use the "eject" command, which kicked the player out of the dream but didn't explicitly ban them, letting them keep coming back over and over until they got bored or got the message. There were lines of code a dream maker could use to permanently eject someone, but it required reuploading the dream in the same spot, which also kicked every other player out. This was eventually resolved with the "banish" command, which not only kicked a player out, but prevented them from ever coming back.
