Just a quest note
to let you guys know what we're workinng on for this weekend.
First off, Ikea's
House Items shop will be opening in Dragevard, and at LEAST one of
Galanoth's 3 random quests will appear. If we have enough time, I'd
like to add some people aroudn town whom you can talk to.
around the streets is something that has been missing from most of
the towns recently. I'd like Dragesvard to feel more like Oaklore
keep than The Sandsea.
Some of Ikea's house
items will be sold for gold and some for Dragon Coins, but all the
types of items (Stuff, Rugs, Shrubs, Wall Items) will all be together
in the same shop, so make sure that you read the descriptions before
you pay for a giant Galanoth statue carved from ice for your living
room.... because that will be for your lawn.
Does having a giant
non-melting magical ice culpture on your lawn make more sense than
having it in your living room? No, not really, but that's the way
ALSO, the finale
of the Pirate / Ninja Inn quest chain kicks off with a Monkee War!
The Monkees are sick and tired of being
the ones to suffer through all of these pranks and they've decided
to take it out on you. When you fight in the war you will be magically
transformed into a Monkee (either Pirate or Ninja depending on which
side you decide to fight for).
When the war ends it will be added to
the quest chain as a 5 wave mini-war quest, but the FULL WAR will have
special rare item drops that you won't be able to get after the war
is over! You also help us make the war chest... whichever side wins
the war... we will be making monkey themed weapons based around either
Pirate Monkees or Ninja Monkees!
won't be able to fight in this war unless you've played the entire
quest chain up to that point,
so if you have been slacking off, now is the time to catch up!
Cysero Is Bringing
If you haven't been
to Dragesvard yet then you don't know about Olaf's party.
You should probably
go check it out. I'll wait here.
You couldn't get
in either? Yeah, I forgot to bring something too. Maybe next week.
I ran all around Dragesvard and found a lot of notes on a lot of
doors. I'm not sure what I'm missing but almost everyone is there!
There are a few people
not at the party. Galanoth, of course. BorkBork in the weapon shop
(three new weapons), Fenrir in the helm shop (five never-before-seem
helms) and Brunhilda the Gryphonmaster seem to get
out of work later than everyone else. Maybe I can hook up with them
later after I pick up some buns for the sausages.
Galanoth is pulling
double duty too. He's still hanging out in Falconreach looking for
willing heroes as well as setting up shop in Dragesvard. That makes
sense since I can get from one town to the other that fast too. That
gryphon sure is fast!
We also have the next quest in the Pirate
/ Ninja Inn quest chain. I have a sneaking suspicion that this might
be the last straw. I mean... we know what happens when you drop Water
Breathing potions in the water.... we can breathe it. SO what happens
when you drop an Air Breathing potion in a ninja inn? Hmmm?
I'm beginning to smell a monkee war! Or
is that the pirate Inn that I'm smelling!
I gotta go to the grocery and pick up
those sausage buns.
See you guys at Olaf's! Have a great weekend!
Cysero Knows How
Dragesvard is a town built into a floating
glacier that follows a tight tidal orbit. It flows into the path of
mirgating seals, and various forms of arctic fish keeping fishing and
seafarming market stalls full year-round. Because it's on the move
and protected by an overhead sheath of ice, it's very well defended
the ice dragons who have been terrorizing the frozen northlands. They
have destroyed almost every other human settlement.
This is where Galanoth, the Dragonslayer
has decided to make his stand against these marauding monsters, and
make the northlands once again safe for settlement.
It's up to you to find out why these ice
dragons have decided to organize and attack human towns. Galanoth doesn't
really care why they are attacking... he just wants to stop them.
Hopefully, Friday we will have a brand
new town for you to walk around. It won't have any quests
but it should have places to explore and people for you to talk to.
Myabe a few shops where you can pick up some new weapons, items and
maybe a house item shop hiding among the frozen streets. No promises.
This weekend we are also releasing the
next quest in the Pirate / Ninja Inn quest chain... After the noxious
clouds of monkey gas drove most of the business from the Pirate Innkeeper
has decided that the gloves have come off. This week, it's No-More-Mister-Nice-Pirate!
You know, this kind of escelation
can only end one way.... a monkey filled WAR!

Cysero Sleeps With
A Bat In Case
Of Closet Monsters
July 18th, 2008 So spooky...
Have I ever mentioned how creepy the underground lab is at 3 AM? No? Well, it is. No, I'm not afraid of the dark! Pandora, my faithful (well...she's as faithul as a cat can be) pet, agrees!
Pandora(some of you have seen her while visiting my DF House (ID#35)) and I were about to finish up work (She likes to "help" by unplugging my network cables and disconnecting my mouse) when I realized some horrifiyng undead minions were trying to slowly roast me alive.
Or... That my air conditioning was on the fritz.
Either way, I blame the MechQuest Gremlins.
So, Packing up Pandora's commode,my laptop, and a few over-caffienated drinks, we made the great journey to the underground lab, where she's standing guard against undead minions(Good thing Daimyo is out of the office today) and I'm trying to get a bit more work done before I grab a few hours of sleep somewhere comfortable.
We are Live! But we have some bugs. As usual.
The funny thing is
that the thing that we've been testing the longest (buying more house
item slots), in testing for several days now) and we were very comfortable
with... seems to be broken. Rolith is working on that now.
And apparently he
fixed it. So we're good there. If you tried to buy space and thought
you had your DC's taken from you.... you didn't. it only looked that
way. If you log back in you will see that you've lost nothing! Smiley
will notice that a dragonslayer named Galanoth has replaced Thyton
in town. If you talk to him you will find that he is offering
several weapons, helms, a cloak and a belt in exchange for proof of your
adventures. This shop is a limited-time-only shop (at least a week, maybe
more) and every single item is for ALL players!
Also released this week is the next chapter
in the Pirate / Ninja Inn quest chain! If you are offended by farting...
you might wanna skip it. Be sure to check out last weeks quest again.
We forgot to add the end cutscene.... we fixed that too!
We have also
added over 50 new house items, including 2 new catagories... Shrubs
(for the front lawn) and Rugs (which
These Items are:
Old Checkered Floor
Shiney Checkered Floor
24 ALL NEW!
Including functional Healing Pad and fuctional Slightly Broken Healing
Pad (as seen in Valencia's area)
Celestia's tea party
Inn Table (with mugs)
Omelette Table (from the dragon egg chain)
Wasabi Table (showdown between King Burgers and Holy Wasabi!)
18 New Items Including...
Necro U. Hand Book (which plays Warcry Of The Paladin when clicked!)
Wall Vault (Which WILL SOON open your bank,
right now... it's just pretty.)
Pictures of most of the DF Wallpapers
Poster of Sir Ver!
Doctor Voltabolt's Corkboard!
13 ALL NEW! Including Artix lawn statue of gold and silver that loads
the Artix Guest, and an Outhouse that loads the Outhouse Prank quest
So what is that... 64? Yeah. 64 new items!
Some are gold, some are DC and some of the older items have been updated
to do things that they didn't do last week! Have fun figuring those out.
Have a great weekend! Or Else!
Cysero Is Open To
Little Help From My Friends
We've got a few new
fun house items coming out this week (like the Oaklore and Lymcrest
locations and a Framed Necro U Handbook that you can mount on your
wall.... and if
Warcry Of The Paladin) , and some more planned. But what I really
wanna know is...
We've got 2 new item
types coming this week: Rug Items and Shrubs (which are items that
you can put on the 4 item spots in your front yard. Randor The Red
suggested an outhouse. I like it!) so load us up on those!
Some of you have
been wondering what Cysero's Left Sock will do for you. I have already
dropped a hint on the forums. Some of you who were around when
I had my little... accident... with the guardian tower. This is a
nod to you veteran players! Things have changed a LOT in DF since
then... thanks for sticking around!
We are also working
on a pretty good sized shop for the Scavenger Hunt (more like a Farming
Hunt, really) including at least one set of level 40 free weapons!
These guys will be pretty nice in terms of power and stats since
they will be for a limited time, and all of them will have new, never
Geo is back on the
case and building the next Inn Quest! The Ninja Innkeeper was not
amused by last week's prank and has decided to take the prank war
to the next level! Make sure to check in at the Shadow of The Wind
Inn on Friday to see what the next step is! (after we release....duh).
See you there!
Cysero Has The
Not Much But It's Terrific
I gotta say, a lot
of you guys did some stuff with the houses that we didn't think of.
They look terrific. Some of them look really REALLY terrific!
In fact, starting NEXT Monday (not today)
we will be running a Top Houses contest (Lore's Next Top Model....Home),
with a grand prize of 2000 Dragon Coins! That's a full pouch guys,
so make 'em pretty, funny, silly, eye catching... in short, make 'em
terrific. Remember, doesn't start until NEXT Monday. Try and enter
the contest before it
and the world may end. You don't want that on your conscience.
This weekend we will be releasing some
new terrific items, a great deal of which came from terrific player
suggestions including Shrubs and other lawn decorations (like Lawn
heh), some carpets, rugs, healing pads, broken healing pads, mysterious
red stains that just won't wash out of the floorboards... adding some
items to the gold and DC shops, and adding some terrific functionality
to some of the existing items. We also plan on opening up the ability
additional housing inventory slots. I don't know about you guys but
I've already run out of space.
We are also trying something new.
We're going to try a kind of scavenger
hunt. A new, terrific NPC will be replacing Thyton on Friday and this
NPC will have a very interesting shop that will last for a limited
time. This shop will be filled with terrific weapons, items and maybe
even a rare pet... ALL of these items will be available for EVERYONE
forgotten you, beloved free players, but Housing is a BIG project...
excuse the mess)... but they will be merge shops. Maybe you need 10
Sandsea Treasures and
Defender Medals. Maybe you will need 15 Pouches of Sparkling Sand and
Doom Essence. It will give you a terrific chance to run all over DragonFable
and visit some of places that you haven't seen for a while!
I'd like to say that we will have the
next Pirate/Ninja Inn quest, but Geo has been putting those
terrific quests together and she's not feeling terrific today so might
have to wait a week on the
Who wants to come over? I
have some hand me down furniture but the new stuff
should be arriving any minute now!
We are running a
bit behind schedule (which has me angry, I have ice cream waiting
for me) but it will be very worth it. 100 items turned into 150 items(including
my sock which will do some fun stuff in a later release, a snow globe
that plays music and a few other neat surprises), several different
floor types and locations like Falconreach, Osprey Cove, Shadow Of
The Wind Village, The SandSea, Xan's Volcanic Zone and Doomwood!
Once we launch thos
release, there will be a Houses button in Falconreach which will
show you the different
styles of houses and let you choose one of your own, go to your house
or even visit a friend's house of you know their Character ID. The
Item shops are in an easy-to-find location right next to your house
and you can't beat free, instant delivery of any furniture that you
You will only have
20 house item inventory slots but you can sell anything that you
buy for the normal buyback
rate. Plus I think you don't even have 20 house item slots.
Here is how you work the houses:
Hit the MANAGE button.
Little gold rings will appear. If you click on these rings, your
inventory will open
up. Just pick what you want to place there and hit EQUIP or REMOVE
until you get the layout that you like! It's that simple!
In the future, you
will be able to decorate your lawn, upgrade your house, we will be
releasing a ton of new items... some of which will launch quests,
play songs or do other interesting things. We are also planning a
special closet that will hold every armor that you have unlocked,
so you can equip any available class right from the comfort of your
bedroom (or whatever room you put the closet in).
I'll let you guys
know as soon as we are live!
Cysero Can Make A
It's nice to have a place
of your own.
Here I am, proud
home owner, standing outside of my very first house!
As you can see, I
chose the Villager style home (one of 3 possible choices) and the
Falconreach background (more of those to pick from too). This cozy
little place has 3 warm, well lit rooms (they are well lit because
I can add as many windows as i want, in 10 different styles!) which
offer a Dragonlord a VERY customizable experience.
There are over 100
possible items with which you can decorate your new pad, from different
styles of floors, columns (including my personal fav, the Xan fire
column), to couches, chairs and stools, beds, tables and that's just
have you ever wanted your own Reens' style alchemy lab in your house?
How about your own Sword N' The Stone? How about your very own Saucy
Want a place for
your baby dragon to sleep? Place a comfy dragon nest at the foot
of your bed or show him that you really care and spring for the regal
DELUXE model! Every baby dragon needs a litter box! Cover the walls
paladin sword, ninja weapon set, ranger gear or other class weapons!
Show your addiction to PVP by sporting the battle flag from the battlespire...
or a banner of the majestic chickencow!
You can see where
I'm going with this.
If we have enough
time, some of these items might have special effects... like refilling
your potions or health, or launching a quest (Yes, you can buy a
taime traveling phonebooth of your very own). Eventually we plan
on adding TONS more functionality, like the ability to buy travel
buttons to your favorite locations! Buy your own gryphon or magic
portal! Set traps, so if someone is poking around in your house it
will instantly cause a PVP battle with the house's owner! These are
all big MAYBE ideas but we're full of them... some of them will work
It's your personal
space... go nuts!
This weekend we will
also be launching the second of the Pirate/Ninja Inn battles. Mae
Pi wants revenge on the ninja innkeeper, and he expects you to lend
Has heard voices...
July 8th, 2008 So, it's a little after the 8th...
But who's counting? Anyways... The Necromancer class may have been a bit... overtweaked on monday. It's been buffed up a bit again.
Final now does a bit more damage, Summon has been boosted a bit, and lost a cooldown turn.
Don't say we never do anything for you guys and your rampant obession with slaying things with your undead minions...
Restart your browsers and log in now to get the changed version.
Dosn't Like It Either....

July 7th, 2008 Lets Get One thing Straight...
We are NOT working on getting housing done this week... Nope...
*Sounds of obvious construction continue in the background*
Hey Rolith, where do you want the "House building for Dummies" books?
You showed up just to prove me wrong don't you?
Prove you wrong? Nah, the sock cages are in your general direction. We're working on housing. It's our big project right now. Never said it was coming out this week. Artix DEFINATLY didn't say it was coming this week either.
Thanks for another great contest guys! Just think, all these screenshots
that you guys took will be one of the first thing that someone sees when
they come to DragonFable.com to check the game out! Great job!
Ok, ok... so if..... IF..... we were to release housing this weekend...
and IF we were to release a lot of items for gold and a lot more of the
cooler items for DCs... then, how many DCs would you guys be willing to
...My left sock?
Cysero Has Like A
Rares, New Quest, and New Classes (sort of)!
Happy 4rd of July!
As you probably know
by now, the 4th of July weapons are for sale to Dragonlords ONLY
from the button in Falconreach. Remember, these are HOLIDAY WEEKEND
RARES and may never appear in game again/ Be sure to grab them before
In addition to these
rares... THE RELEASE IS LIVE! (we're EARLY!)
and Death Knight armor are now AVAILABLE IN GAME! Speak to Artix
in the Nceropolis zone about unlocking and training these armors
(look for the Other Classes button). Keep in mind that you can't
unlock Death Knight until you have mastered ALL the Paladin and Necromancer
Also, this week we
start a now fun side-quest chain! The Inns on Sho Nuff Island are
now open for business and the owners, Pi Mae and Mae Pi, have it
in for each other! The Ninjas strike first in this monkee filled
quest chain, so head to the Shadow Of The Wind Village and ask around...
I'm sure there is a way that you can help. Those dirty pirate apes
his hard so bring lots of potions!
That's it for me,
guys. I'm blasting Tom Waits, picking up a friend, grabbing some
Indian Food and heading to the beach before the sun sinks into the
ocean and the light show starts! Have a fun and SAFE Independence
Remember: If you
see a firework heading straight for you.... move.
Is Totally To Blame ...again
Happy 3rd of July!
Tomorrow is Independence
DAy in the U.S. and to celebrate we are opening up a DA ONLY shop in
Falconreach and selling (for gold) some 4th themed weapons! They are
Freedom, Independence and Liberty!
When the special goes
off, so do the fireworks, and they will attack the emeny with 1 of
3 random elemental damage effects! Fire, Wind or Water. They will also
tint the monster accordingly (Red, White or Blue)!
These pretties will
go on sale at Midnight tonight! (12:00 AM server time) and will leave
the game on Monday morning (Whatever Time I get To Work AM server
Tomorrow, we are
planning on the FULL release of both Necromancer AND Death Knight
armor! Remember, you need both Pali and Necro FULLY trained before
you can start training your DK armor!
On top of that we
are ALSO releasing the Inns in Shadow of the Wind Village and Osprey
Cove. These two inns offer rest for weary travelers (that is unless
you're a pirate looking for a bed in the ninja village or vice versa).
The two owners of this fine establishment are bitter rivals and are
constantly playing pranks on one another.
The innkeeper at
the Shadow of the Wind Village will have a job for you... the first
So... I wandered by my computer a few minutes ago...and saw Alac had a MSN waiting for me.
Alac(12:30 AM) : Um... Rolith... I know you wanted to nerf necromancer a bit...but...
Alac(12:30 AM) : Why take away all the skills but shield?
It goes without saying... That wasn't the intended result. It was a mistake made while getting the armor ready for release tomorrow. We're sorry to cut testing a few hours short, but check back tomorrow for it, and DeathKnight's full release!
