Raven has always been very protective of Thursday, to the point of rushing heedlessly off into the wilds of Doomwood in an effort to find her after Thursday disappeared! This week you'll see how Raven ended up in Amityvale and Doomwood and be able to play as Raven herself! Will you be able to run and hide from all the dangers of Doomwood and make it to town? Or will fear and panic overwhelm you?
You'll need to have at least finished The Locket to get to Missed Raven!

Today we've got a really big update for you all. We're rolling out version 14.0.1 for DF! With this comes a lot of stuff so I'll try and explain it all.
Stat Update - We've adjusted the way some stats work. They were adjusted during 9.0 but there were a few things that still needed to be changed. The major ones are as follows.
- The damage formula for Str/Dex/Int was simplified so you can figure out how much extra damage you'll get at a glance.
- Cha now directly buffs the damage of ALL guests and pets!
- Bonus Mana from Wis has been reduced some.
- Dodge/Parry/Block now provide substantially more defense than before.
- The amount of Crit from items has been reduced.
To see a list of ALL the stat changes, and why they were made, you can look at this thread that I made. Click here! Please read that thread before you report anything as a bug. Something you may think is a bug may not be!
Brand new UI!
Tomix worked really hard to get as much of the artwork updated as he could. There's still some stuff that needs to be done but there's a lot that's now updated.
- New login screens. Both the backgrounds and the actual character select screen have recieved a major overhaul.
- Almost all of the interfaces around the game now have a new look and they should more accuratly reflect the "fantasy" style that the game was always meant to have.
- Minor updates. Things like DC text colors have been updated to let you better tell stuff apart.
Lots of bug fixes!
I used some of the free time after making sure the stat changes and the engine updates were working to fix several of the bugs that were buried deep inside the engine that we could get to. There are some small ones but these are the larger ones that I was able to nab.
- Ash Dragonblade / Alexander character slots now don't show the quest log. You shouldn't be able to escape with either of them THAT way now!
- You no longer can summon the guest version of your dragon during quests. People were abusing this to get infinate uses of the "Primal Fury" skill. That's not the intent of the guest so I fixed this.
There's plenty more that was done and a lot more planned! I already linked to the stats change part of the update above but there's a lot more info in that thread about what's planned for future updates! I suggest you check out the entire thread, click here! , to see. It IS a lot to read but it will give you some insight on what's still on its way! If you do find any issues you can let us know in that thread or report it as a bug if it actually is one. We'll get anything fixed as soon as we can!

Will Leon be able to rescue Kara SuLema from the clutches of Akanthus?
Friday the 13th War
This is the last weekend for the war! Finish up your undead slaying because the undead will be retreating on Monday!

Uh oh. Looks like the undead are starting to overwhelm the defenders of Falconreach. You all have until tomorrow morning at 11:59 server time to win the war. If you don't, I'll save you this time, but next time there will be dire consequences for losing. How dire? Let's just say you do NOT want to find out.
The clock is ticking. Hurry heroes!

I just wanted to share some cool art stuff from our players!

Greetings! The Ficus and its friend, Buckaroo the Bonsai, have left on an adventure of their own to explore the 13th dimension, so now I am responsible for my own DN postings! (Congrats to anyone who got my little joke there over this week. +1 internet points to you!)
Big Daddy needs your help! The town of Amityvale has a BIG problem because Bubble has brought her sour mood there. Do whatever you can to make sure she doesn't make the whole town as angry as she is!
After that you'll need to head right back to Falconreach. As the sun sets the undead will march. An army is now poised to strike when darkness begins to fall. Drive them back hero, Falconreach is counting on you!

Greetins! Ashendal here once again! The Ficus and its new friend, who I found out is called Buckaroo for some reason, have been having fun over the past couple of days. Apparently they've been spotted doing all sorts of things including playing tennis! I'm not quite sure how two plants are able to play that and no one I asked really wanted to answer my question. Either way I'm able to post another update for you all!
There have been reports of undead massing in the woods around Falconreach. The town guards are holding them off but more seem to be showing up by the day. If they keep showing up at this rate there will be an army here...by Friday! Dun dun DUUUUUN!!!!
I also recieved some info from Dracelix!
After much consideration of what item/npc to recreate in 3D, I've made my choice.
And the character is.......
I've only just started working on him so there's not much to show, but I do have a sculpt of a Dragon you can look at: 3D Dragon Sculpture!
And look out for a weapon or two I'll be releasing this week!
See you all Friday! Make sure to bring some Undead-Be-Gone and something to resist Pink!
