Well, we totally had to change direction on this week's release on Tuesday.... and it turned out AWESOME! I think you guys are gonna like this one! ;)
Make sure to check out the new DC shops as well! Tinker is selling energy weapons, in the southern Falconreach square, during the night hours. Farwyn is selling color-custom, water/wood element switching weapons, right next to Cysero, during the day!
Tomix has been working hard on getting Pyromancer done for you guys and he has a crazy amount of new skills for you to check out this week!
This Friday Oh noes, Ghost's main computer went BOOM! So those pirates that were going to help clear the docks on Friday are going to be delayed slightly! No worries, though, I have a good source that they're at least sending a stealthy pirate through (definitely NOT a stinky ninja) tomorrow that will have special weapons to help get heroes in town armed and ready.
When the Lorian Gryphon Express delivers its mail this Friday to Ash though, he should get a special note for you.... Are you ready to help clean up the mean streets of nighttime Falconreach?
Zomg, sooo many little things updated this week! Book 3 Falconreach is live though!
Start in Book3 Oaklore (of course) and watch the Intro if you haven't yet. Then, talk with Maya about Rolith's message, which should open the path! Then you can make your way to Book 3 Falconreach!
Make sure to talk with Ash and see Twilly (who has a little friend that's been waiting for you!). The Pet shop, Mayor's office, Serenity's Inn and lots of random dialog and little things here and there have been changed so explore!
The Oaklore lockpicking will be coming soooon!
The Suggestion Weapons from Dracelix (pictured below) are now in Serenity's Shop!!
Hello all! I wanted to take this day and make it about you guys, because you are awesome! Yes, you! You guys are fun, excited, constructively critical, speculative and full of ideas (which I shamelessly use since I love tossing your characters in-game) which is fantastic!
I also wanted to give a huge shout-out to one of the hardest working fans in the fanbiz, Alethia! She has worked incredibly hard on a simply amazing fansite! You guys should check it out!
More Badges Coming Soon! All you warmongers better get ready to work... Rolith tells me it should be possible to make badges for overall waves defeated.... and, well, there's always another war around the corner... but I've been hearing news of a BIG one coming!
This week Tomix has more new pyromancer skills to preview! Soon Rolith and Verlyrus will get their hands on this awesome armor!
Back to School Shop Tomorrow will also have a new Back to School DC shop button in the Book of Lore! This shop will only be up for a limited time and will poof back into the ether on 19th. So make sure to check out the gorgeous good scythe weapon (which is still in progress!) from Tomix that will be inside the shop!
A few updates have been made to the Book of Lore today!
First of all, the Chronomancer and Chronocorrupter badges have been combined into a single badge. This "Time Killer" badge will unlock with any of the promotional calendar armors DF may release in the future!
The enTropic badge (as well as the Earth Orb and the Final 13th button) only require you to complete Earth and Entropy now! "Breaking Awe", "Wanderer", "Mollo Destruction" and "Idle Heroes" badges have been added! The problems with the Mogloween badges are known and will be seen to as soon as Rolith has time.
Book 2 is closed off in the Book of Lore until you finish Book 1 but, if you really, really, really just want to do Book 2 quests, you can still find Atrea through the Travel Map!
You are also now able to travel to your House through the Book!
Also, if you have a character that hasn't started (or finished) the Fire War, you should totally go check out the Falconreach Weapon Shop (and the Pet Shop if you haven't done the Spy Saga)! ;)
Rolith has only broken seven keyboards today (I'm only at four)! Book Three has begun (with lots more to come)! Including a thing or two in Oaklore for you to pick at, which I ran out of time for for today...
A few chains had tracking added to them (/coughspy/cough) so you might need to redo those quests for the badge and access to other quest goodies in the Book!
Ghost, Tomix, Oishii, Dracelix and True Mortal have all been working hard on new art for Chapter 3 in DragonFable! I wanted to give you guys a little run-down of what to expect when Chapter 3 finally goes live, since we're picking the story up a few years after your character was frozen in place outside of Oaklore.
The Chapter 3 map will start with only Oaklore and Sunbreeze Grove (and possibly Falconreach*) on it.
Oaklore... well, as an outpost of Swordhaven, it has been welcoming to The Rose and the Mana Hunters. So much so that Rolith, Captain of the Pactagonal Knights, has relinquished his command!
You, being so close to Oaklore, haven't had the luxury of legions of mages working to get you unfrozen. Warlic, at least, had the chance to start you thawing before he made his escape to his tower! To get inside Oaklore's gates, you'll have to be a little elusive about how much mana you actually use... and help the Knights fight the last of the warring elementals and magical creatures in the area that The Rose has been working to capture.
Mana Huntress by True Mortal
Falconreach is one of the few places in Lore where magic is still welcomed and, as such, is full to the brim of magical beings trying to find refuge. Even there, though, the cultists of The Rose rail against magic users and creatures. Falconreach and it's denizens still remember their hero though! Even after all the years you've been gone!
As Chapter 3 gets started, we'll soon expand towards Swordhaven... and the hidden wind elf resistance encampment on the way!
*Depending on how sick Rolith still is from the convention! D;
The end of Chapter 2 will see the beginning of the rise of The Rose. In the years* between the Chapter 2 finale and the beginning of Chapter 3, the face of Lore has changed. Some towns have fallen, new camps and towns have risen and Falconreach is waaaaay more crowded. A new kind of monster hunts in the woods... and they're hunting you and your dragon!
This means we'll have an entirely new map for one of the September releases! The Chapter 1 and 2 versions of Lore will still be available through the Book of Lore but, after creating a new character, you'll have your choice of seeing the original Intro, "A Hero is Bored", or a brand new, Chapter 3 intro (don't worry, you won't have to start a new character to see it)! Then, you'll once again find your way to the first two towns in the Chapter 3 map, Oaklore and Falconreach... but there will have been some changes during the years** you've been gone....
With The Rose gaining traction in Lore, even having the support of Alteon, which of your old friends (and enemies....) have joined its movement?
*Yep, years! **Yes, still a different timeline than the other games! ;)
