Hunting down bugs and growing some gourds!
I hope everyone had a FANTASTIC Mogloween! Parties, candy, trick-or-treating, pumpkin-carving... it really is a FUN holiday! And Fall is such a great time of the year. If you don't live in a sub-tropical climate, the leaves will change color and neighbors burn piles of them, scenting the air with the delicious smell of woodsmoke. That's probably the thing I miss most about not living in the MidWest anymore. But Florida is great right now; I spend most of my weekends outdoors grilling and chilling with friends. Does life get any better?
I know for our Canadian friends, the watch is on for early snowfalls. Lucky people! (Ghost will not appreciate my enthusiasm for snow. Not when he has to shovel drifts taller than HE is!) So if you ARE Canadian, I guess it's time to break out your snowboots and hunt down your shovels and snow plows. I'll just be over here wishing for a white winter in a few months.
And speaking of hunting... let's talk about this week's DragonFable release!
It's a Bug-hunting week, so you can bet Rolith will be busy, busy, busy as a bee, or a beetle, or, well, SOME kind of bug! Busy smashing it, that is!
For our release this week, we'll be doing a Gourd Hunt! Serenity says that she heard Zorbak sprinkled some Gruesome-Gro Gourd Glitter on the plowed pumpkin patch in Amityvale, and then directed his horde of minions to plant the pumpkin seeds all over Lore!
If this is your first item hunt in DragonFable, here's how it works:
- We add the gourds (or chests, or eggs, depending on what type of hunt it is) to old quests throughout the game as rare drops.
- You run through all the old quests seeking the new gourd drops.
- When you find one, get with your friends on the forum (if you don't have an account, now's a GREAT time to make one and join in the fun) and share what quests you've found a gourd in.
- Wait for the gourds to grow to full size. When they do, they'll turn into brand-new items for you to equip and wear or use!
True Mortal made the items which will grow from these gourds, so if you're a fan of his work, you'll want to get hunting this Friday! This will be the main event for this week's release. Aside from working on fixing a bunch of bugs, we're also preparing for some BIG events this November. (Events like Falconreach Idle, the Stone and Nature Orb Saga, and Thankstaking. So much to do and prepare for!)
Time for me to get back to work! Oh, and take a look at the new homepage banner! Chronomancer class will be available by purchasing the 2011 AE Calendar from HeroMart!
