Yar, me hearties! It be Talk Like A Pirate Day! A day wherebe ev'ry pirate worth his salt celebrates a year of good winds, calm seas, 'n bountiful booty wit' a fresh smoothie wit' th' crew! Trouble be a a'brewin' in Osprey Cove tho'! Mazurek's Autumn Wind 'n Rhubarb's Red Betty both be in th' port... 'n th' Cap's's and th' crews be gettin' ready to brawl!
Fer this week, there be a Pirate Challenge t' complete! Choose yer side 'n help collect booty fer the Cap'n o' yer choosin'! Th' Cap'n wit' th' biggest pile o' booty by next week will be rewardin' ye a treasure fer yer help!
Lots o' new treasures be available fer DC, if yer wantin' gear now! Thar also be rumors o' a wicked edge that might be found wit' pirate booty!
Now, here be a word from Ash!
This week we have a fancy new Trinket for you! Tomix animated the attack and Verly and I worked on it to give it a neat effect.
Every time you use the trinket you have a 20% chance to gain half your level's worth of gold for that battle! So if you're a level 50 character, and you see the popup, you'd get 25 gold added right onto your earned gold for that quest! You can have it happen multiple times during the same quest too!
There's also a SECOND benefit to owning it. During this challenge to help either Rhubarb or Mazurek collect the most booty, as long as you have the trinket in your bag you'll contribute an ADDITIONAL count of booty to your chosen side. That's 2 for 1 run!
Get out there and help your favorite Captain win!

We have two quests for you this week!
For the first quest, visit Mritha and play a cutscene-quest featuring your character disguised as Edd, Vince and the rest of the Elite Patrol, as you're ready to venture into a very well guarded place...
Next, visit Verlyrus the boxcat in Book3 Amityvale and go on your first, proper quest!
There are 2500 Sundering Emerald scythes in the LQS shop as a celebratory gift in honor of our beloved Geopetal!

So... by now, some of you might know that there is a small puzzle cartography event going on on my twitter account.
Go ahead and join, if you'd like!
Here, have this DN-only exclusive puzzle piece!
When combined, the entire puzzle will reveal a new, bigger Dragon Fable map.
It will be available in game in the future!

I have a few words from Ashendal for you!
It's been a while since I've popped my head into the DN's to make an announcement, but it's time for one! As some of you are aware there's been a few revamps that have happened in the past few weeks. I wanted to give you all some information on what's out and what will be out soon.
The Master Soulweaver preview is now the "live" version you get from Tomix. The artifact update and some animation updates will be added when Tomix gets time.
The Technomancer preview is now the "live" version. You are able to save this one if you would like to. There are also various levels of weapons from Yix for Technomancer's created by Dracelix.
The weapon that I put in the shop for Necromancer is now a "scythe" type weapon so that everyone can use it. Since most of the revamps are going to have weapons for all base classes it wasn't fair to lock this one off like that only to mages without giving something to Warrior and Rogue base classes.
The next DA preview will be for DragonSlayer and it will be coming with this Friday's release. I had to make quite a few changes to it so hopefully you all will like it. I'm also going to be changing the Galanoth guest that you get in the quests and from the main Dragesvard screen once the preview is over. This should help those of you that still need to do the quests. He'll scale to your level and I'll be tinkering with his skills.
The next part is going to take longer but I'm going to be working on getting a quest made so you all can actually forge various DragonSlaying weapons. You Won't get to make the Dragonblade though, sorry. You'll be able to make other weapons, but not that one. The quest will have you going to collect Dragonbane and then forging it into a weapon. You'll need to have trained Blacksmithing from Yulgar to be able to do this so make sure you get around to that if you haven't. This won't happen exactly when DragonSlayer is out of the DA preview but I'll work on getting it in when I can. DF quests are a bit different than what I'm used to doing so it may take me a bit to get it all worked out.
After DragonSlayer we'll have the DA preview for Paladin. The weapons and items for Paladin *might* be delayed longer than what happened with Necromancer's mainly because of the preview right after it.
DEATHKNIGHT! Yes, that will be right after Paladin. It's what everyone keeps asking for, so it'll be coming very soon. During the DK preview I'll be working on getting all the weapons and items added for its "Empowered" skill. I'm going to make versions all the way up to 80 for Non-DA holders, DA holders, AND for DC's if you don't want to work for the materials. Yes you will have to earn the items, Sir Malifact isn't that nice and neither am I! Muahaha! I'll make sure to have a full breakdown of what you need and post it on the forums so that you all can get the items you need ahead of time.
(I haven't forgotten about Guardian though. That will happen when I can fit it in for Guardian verified players and DA players to preview.)
After that is October! With that comes Mogloween and revamps for the PumpkinLord and Evolved PumpkinLord classes. I'm going to talk to Geo and the rest of the staff and see about doing upgrades to some of the matching equipment (Weapons, Helms, and Capes) from older Mogloweens to have max level versions. That way you can have a nice set to use with the new skills!
Ninja, Pirate, GPS, FMA, and Dragonlord will be the last 5 I'm working on and they all should hopefully happen in November and early December. Then ALL the classes I'm working on that needed to be brought up to 9.0 will be. (Verly is working on Ranger and it will come out when he gets time amongst everything he's doing. No, it wasn't forgotten. That's his!)
One final thing is I have a question related to passives for everyone. (You can let me know on the forums what your answer is) Passives are cool, but the notification system for them can get annoying after a while. Necromancer is a good example of this. It has a pop-up on every turn letting you know it's still there.
- Do you like that set-up? Do you not like that set-up?
- Would you rather have one where it tells you that it's inflicted the passive and then one when it "caps" out and is doing the most it can do? (Skipping the "hey your passive effect got stronger!" notify on the inbetween turns)
If you have any thoughts on that let me know. I'll make changes to how it's displayed on Necro, Pally, and DeathKnight depending on the feedback I get.

Sofist is not happy… Not happy at all.
For all he knows and cares, and that Private Bradley lets him know, there’s been a brawl in the cafeteria. A real brawl.
That’s unacceptable. It doesn’t matter who it is, the lowest weakling or the best soldier, the soldiers garrisoned at the Runed Fortress get into fights, outside of the training facilities, serious fights, under and only under the command of the Head Jailer. No exceptions. Those who do not respect that guideline… well, it bodes no good for them.
But you have to bear with that. Whatever happens, you need to get through that gate, the gate that leads to the Third Floor and the Elite Patrol is the key. It’s part of your mission. To rescue the Vind’s ally. In this week’s quest, you have to convince Sofist to get you onto the Patrol the hard way. Make it or break it.
And now, a message from... someone. Be warned, it contains some spoilers. Don’t read if you haven’t completed the quest.
Are you sure?
A breeze blows with the warmth not all to different of that of a smile.
Both a long and short time, isn’t it? On one hand, two weeks can go by in flash, making one wonder where time went. Time flies when you are busy, especially when you are surrounded by the folks you know and love. On the flip side, if you are alone, if you are away and distant from those you love… Two weeks can be quite a bit longer, can’t it?
Two weeks during which Mritha goes from dreading her impromptu position of leadership to cementing and adapting her role to acting as the de facto leader of the Vind. Just in time as well as Seallah is not idle either. The defector Dragonriders have been gathering; it is only a matter of time before another attack occurs. The Vind has little choice: either wait for the drop to be gotten on them or take the initiative and take the fight to the defectors...
Without you. There is no time to wait. You have your mission and they have theirs...
Eukara will tell you more about what is to come though. Prison Brawl marks the end of the Espina Rosa series before the Third Level… or almost. There might be a small quest or cutscene that will serve as the prologue to the descent into the Third Floor. Possibly, however otherwise you have completed this part of the Espina Rosa chain. Eukara will have the pleasure to introduce the next quest in the Sulen’eska series. The Dragonrider War.
The warmth of the breeze fades.

Book 3 Amityvale is now live! Dracelix and Tomix put a lot of work into this new, safer, more secure town. While it still lives under the threat of vampires, werewolves, ghouls, yagas, lawyers, and more, the strong walls and the presence of the Rose keeps the townpeople safe... as long as they don't wander too far!
This week you'll be able to explore "The Other Well" and "Swamp Lake" in an effort to help townskitties and to find clues for Thursday. The town Alchemsmith also has a new set of poison weapons for sale!
For a fun note, 1098 quests and towns have been created since the "Crystal Clear Lake" quest... which sees it's remake/refresh tonight in Swamp Lake!
As the weeks go on though, Thursday will become even more obsessed with finding out the reason for her being hunted. Will you and Raven be able to keep her safe from all the factions in Doomwood (not just the werewolves) that want to get ahold of her? All new quests are coming soon!
Blood and Roses begins!

The new, un-voided Ravenloss town is live!
If you've finished the finale, sleep until evening in Falconreach Bk3 and head to the portal area. You should find yourself in a Ravenloss safe from the void influence.
Explore every corner, talk to every NPC, visit Aegis' and Yashta's houses and do three new quests.
And when you are done, head back to the portal and visit "the grave".

New version of Ravenloss will be coming out this week!
With the Ynnungaap Core stabilized, the void has left Ravenloss through the Equilibrium Gate.
The gate has sealed itself and Ravenloss is finally safe!
NPCs will have new things to say to you, and new areas will be unlocked.
Even Aegis will have his own house!
