The Professor!

You've traveled north to find The Professor, but you may have lead Wargoth's minions right to his hideout as well! Log in now to stop Wargoth's imp from getting away!

Robin and Roblos!
This super duo has set up shop in Serenity's Inn and are offering upgrades to a few select items! The rare weapons of Falconreach, the Mighty 100k Scythe, the ChaosMoon set and the IceScythe can all be upgraded to higher levels now. Just find the appropriate resource in Robin's Shop and then you can upgrade the items in Roblos' Shop! They'll be offering more items for upgrades in the future, in fact, there's a rumor they might have found a dark, dank dungeon that holds a very dark resource....

From the Kensai’s Cave:

Well, it’s been an interesting week. I have taken the quest apart and rebuilt it a number of times trying to get things right. It seems however, that time got away from me, and I was unable to do a few of the things that will be needed for this quest to be able to be released. On Monday the issues that have to be addressed will be looked at. So this quest will be delayed for at least the weekend. Fear not,however, because Geo and Ghost have been hard at work on tonight’s main attraction.

The Tower

From the Kensai’s cave:

A new job is forthcoming from the Auction House. Gris has heard rumors of a rare necromantic formula hidden in a tower somewhere between Amityvale and Moonridge. Long abandoned, this tower was once the home of a powerful Knight. Nobody knows what caused him to research Necromancy, but he rapidly became an expert. This Friday, enter the tower and find it’s secrets.

It’s been a long week already. I have assembled and dismantled this tower so many times over the last few days, making changes based on what I felt would have the most impact on you visually. I have finally found my groove though, and have found the look I wanted. Here’s a sneak peek at what lay in store for you.

Aika Village

Ghost has created a beautiful new town for you guys to explore this week! Aika Village is a peaceful little place on the coast. You can talk to the resident wood elf, Lilka, to take the ferry to Sho'Nuff or she can take you downriver into the darkest heart of the Neverglades!

The Neverglades themselves are said to be an enchanted jungle that is never ending!If you can make your way through each section of deeper and darker jungle the ultimate Aika prize might just be waiting for you at the end, the Aika Backguard! A single level version drops at the end of each huge random, but the highest level, 75 (and free player!), waits for those that can defeat the Deepest Neverglades!

Of ghosts and gravol

Heya! So, um…  this week we kinda had to change up our plans. We were going to release the next quest in the search for the professor, but unfortunately the beginning of week didn't go the way I had planned. I got punched in the face by a stomach flu and it wiped me out on Monday. By Tuesday I was still K.O.'d and so I asked my wonderful wife to speak to Geo on my behalf.  It went something like this: 

 


 

*spoiler part removed*

Charis: Hey (Charis here) Ghost asked me to sign in & let you know that he's "in & out" today… lol - stomach flu…  I'm gonna go wake him up & medicate him again in a min though so I'll ask him.  

Geo: oooh ouch, ok

Charis: Gravol knocks him out - lol 

Geo: I think he has Aika mostly done, so we can do that this week so it's easy on him.

Charis: Once he sleeps that off he'll be fine, I think.  

~some time later~

Charis: He's slightly incoherent but he said "Yah, tell her that… tell her… um… yeah, it should probably have a… quest in it.  No, it should have a … tell her probably that…" lol 

Geo:  yeaaah, let's plan on that so it's an easy week. I'll check in with him tomorrow then, have him sleep for now

 


 

So.. SURPRISE! We're releasing Aika Village this week, lol. Geo is laughing maniacally right now because the cliffhanger she wrote at the end of last week's quest will be extended! Hehe, so evil. Anyway, you'll be able to travel to Aika via the gryphon in Falconreach. It's a quaint little beach town on the East coast. Here you'll meet Lilka, captain of a small ferry, who will take you to Sho Nuff island. In the future, Aika will be tied in to a large walkaround that connects Valencia to the Sandsea, and also to Willowshire. Not sure if there will be a quest this week since we lost a lot of time, so my apologies. Next week will be great though!

The Search Continues...

... but will you like what you find?

You've checked in with many of Lore's more tech-savvy residents in your search for the missing Professor but, so far, he's been elusive. There has to be something... some clue, some hint, to where he could have gone! This week your search continues!


Dracelix created, technologically approved.
