Tuesdays With Tomix

Tomix has finished work on the Atealean base classes and has just now started working on the DC armor for the end of Chapter 2!

Every Tuesday, we'll try to bring a new update so you can see how the armor is being built and how it can evolve from initial concept to final product! This week we're going to start with the female concept sketch. 

Enjoy and look for another update next Tuesday!

Twisted Dreamscape

Fight your way through a twisted dreamscape tomorrow in the latest Chapter 2 quest! Just whose mind are you invading? Or defending?!

Will you be able to find your way... or will the discordant dreamscapes become your nightmare?

The house will have five indoor rooms you can decorate, as well as an area that DragonLords will be able to interact and choose where to travel with their dragons in! You'll be able to get this house for 1000 DC in the House Shop in Dragongrasp.

DragonLord House Update!

Just wanted to give a quick update! Dracelix has created an awesome new house for DragonLords with a cave for your dragon and everything! At the moment, though, we're having issues getting the dragon to display and I don't want to roll it live without the cave (cause the cave is awesome) so it won't be going in tonight. We'll keep working on it though and get it to you guys as soon as we can!

Dragonlords, etc

Here we go... 3 weeks into this DL revamp now and I'm sure glad it's Friday! I spent the better part of the last 2 weeks just on the animations for DL, and then I was fried so I took monday off to go camping with my wife*, and then this week I was like yeah no problem, I'll setup the color custom version of normal dragonlord, and apply the art for evo dragonlord, and setup the cc version version of evo on Tuesday. No problem, cause I can just copy it all over from the originals right?! 

...

Noop! I can't. And so therefore it took way the heck longer than a day, lol. Oh man, I am always doing that to myself... having no concept of how much time something actually might take. So what I did manage to do for this week was setup the color custom DL, and the evolved DL. Those are done, art&animation-wise! And I'm getting close to done on the color custom evolved DL**, but I think that'll have to wait until next week. 

 

For Justice!

Good thing the Dragonlord shields are made out of super lightweight magical metal, or that one arm is going to be HUGE!

 


 

So what that means is that all versions except ccEDL will have the new animations, and should be released later tonight. Rol is still typing his fingers off getting all versions of dragonlord buffed and coded properly, so stay tuned because I think he'll be updating that part tonight as well. Whenever it's done though, I'm sure it will be up to snuff. Also tonight we will be releasing Braughlmurk Cape! An epic location that you'll be able to access via the travel gryphon in falconreach with a total of 6, yes you heard me right, 6! random dungeons! Holy Magicarp! Geo's been working ridonkulously hard to bring that to you tonight and I believe you will enjoy the drops... And last but not least we will be launching a new house for dragonlords that Dracelix has been working on, later this weekend! It'll be available in the town of Dragonsgrasp some time Saturday. Wow, that was a lot of info.. I'd better go underline the main points or it'll be hard to skim.

What a psycho week, I'm goin' camping.

 

 

* Such a great de-stresser! It's been beautiful here in Eastern Canada, and spending a few nights in a tent breathing the fresh air has been fantastic!

** Let's just call em' DL, ccDL, EDL, and ccEDL from now on. So. Much. Typing.

So Many Projects!

So many people on soooo many different projects! The DragonFable team is super busy this week!

Braughlmurk Cape
The ruins of a once great Paladin order sit on the edge of a foggy beach.... Are you brave enough to explore the fallen towers and murky crypts? Will you venture into one of it's many random dungeons and collect the Braughlmurk Bindings and Shadow Bone Shards left behind from the great battle that destroyed the Cape town? Robin and Roblos are betting you are....

Pictured: Not Robin and Roblos!

MOP Hits Amityvale!
Eric Greydawn, the Lady and Chainsword all converged on the office this week and have determined that something... several somethings, are disturbing the wildlife in the woods outside of Amityvale! This week a new random quest will appear on the Amityvale path to help the MOP team clear out those woods!

In other words, Eric now can make random quests! He just laughed evilly when I asked how big the map was going to be....

DragonLord Things
Ghost is working on getting the evolved and color custom versions of the DragonLord Armor available for you guys this week! Rolith has also been following the thread about the skills on the forums and will be working on the class on Friday. 

Dracelix has also created an amazing new house for DF's birthday that will be available Friday in Dragonsgrasp!

The Iglica - Coming Soon!
Tomix is working on the next Atrea expansion! The Iglica (the word for spire in Atealan) towers in the center of Atrea. It houses the throne room of the Atealan Empress and the training rooms for the Atealan classes!


Tomix wanted me to point out the shading is not done yet!

The Iglica will not open this week, but soooooooon!

Tomix is also working on the backgrounds for a very twisted dreamscape. Kathool isn't back... so who's mind (or minds!) are you going to venture into?!

Happy Birthday DragonFable

Hey guys!  Just dropping in to let you know you should go check out the all-new, MUCH more titanically-awesome DragonLord class, which Ghost and I put a LOT of effort into.

This new skill set is not finalized.  I'm still working on tweaking the skills and powers, so expect buffs and debuffs next week. But I can promise that it will be worthy of the noble Order of DragonLords. A DragonLord should feel powerful! That's the whole point of commanding a dragon, right? We hope you enjoy it!

One last Happy Birthday from me. Thanks for all the memories you've helped create these last 6 years; I can't imagine where I would be, or the rest of the DF team, without your support!

Now I'm going to go take some allergy medicine and sleep.  

Alina Edit: Rolith went to bed shortly after writing the previous Design Notes. A few minutes ago I got an instant message which read:

Rolith says (11:17 PM)
Wrote the dsign notes happy birthday typos
need you to fix them make it sound happy

Rolith says (11:18 PM)
where's my cake? geo said cake

Alina says (11:20 PM)
Go back to sleep. I'll make sure they can understand your Happy Birthday Design Notes!
We don't have cake, but you can poke geo for some tomorrow.

Rolith says (11:20 PM)
Dragon-shaped caaaaaaaaaaake! Make it happen.

Happy birthday, DragonFable players! It's been a fantastic six years full of fighting, friends, and FANTASTIC stories! Thank you all for staying with us and supporting us as the game grows!

Jaania

Tomix has created some gorgeous new art for Jaania! This Friday you'll be able to see the fully colored version in Alexander's quest in Swordhaven!

Alex is constantly looking for ways to impress his lovely, bookworm friend. This week he'll be hunting for the perfect gift for her... but Warlic still remembers the ink in his tea!

Petty Squabbles...

Alexander and Warlic have been at odds ever since their apprenticeships started. Thier rivalry has been punctuated with flying books, summoned fire monsters and elaborate pranks... and it's not dying down anytime soon. This week Warlic pushes Alex too far!

DragonFable Birthday!
This weekend is DragonFable's 6th birthday! You guys have been bombarding twitter asking what this year's present is and.... well, could it be geopetal pets for everyone? Giant Rolith Hammer's sent to all the DragonLords in the mail? A Diamyo clone army to guard all your passwords? Real life dragons made in the Underground Lab's specially fire-retardant totally-not-real-wink-wink genetics lab? I'm sooooo not telling! Muahahaha, you'll have to wait and see what awesome gift we have for you this year!
