Six Heroes: The Apprentice!

Heya! It’s Aeon again—back with some more design notes regarding this week’s quest.

  • The ending of the last quest (The Burning Village) was originally part of this script, but I moved it back so you’d know about the enemy sooner, not later.
  • “Return to Lymcrest” takes place several weeks after “The Burning Village.” This quest happens right after that.
  • The little critter cameo is a callback to the early days of DF. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, see “Olaf’s Party” in Book 1 Dragesvard. The style of humor in that quest is really one of DF’s hallmarks.
  • The first thing the Hero teaches Falwynn in this quest: what number lesson do they start with?
  • Of all the quests in this arc, this was my favorite one to write. The atmosphere is silly and the dialogue flows smoothly—it’s just a cute quest overall.

And since this week focuses on Falwynn, here’s some trivia about her:

  • Her birthday is April 7th (based on our calendar, not the in-game one!).
  • Her favorite color is ultraviolet, a color she can’t even see. Her next favorite is green.
  • She was based on Linkle, a character from The Legend of Zelda series.

That’s all for this week! Again, thanks for reading—and see you next time!

Head over to Book 3 Falconreach and talk to Ash to continue the Six Heroes Saga!

The Burning Village!

Journey to the village of Entwhistle this week: a quiet, unassuming town far away from the dangers of the world…and discover that not all is what it seems to be. A dark scheme threatens to envelop Entwhistle in a sea of flames—and you’ll be there to witness its first steps.

Discover what lies in store for you in this burning village…right now!

(HINT: For the people who normally disable their in-game sound, turning up the volume a bit might add to this quest’s ambience!)

Head over to Ash in Book 3 to play this quest!

Hey there! I’m Aeon, one of DragonFable’s volunteer writers. Hope you guys are enjoying this quest chain so far!

This week, I thought I’d give you a little background detail on how “The Burning Village” was written. Putting some “design” back in the Design Notes, essentially!

  • Chronologically, the main part of this quest happens shortly after the Tournament of Champions—but before the Gala.
  • The idea of a burning village was based on a story I had written up for AQWorlds in 2015. Originally, it was only just a forest—no village was involved. In addition, the forest would have already been burnt to cinders by the start of the quest.
  • The walkthrough and the battle at the end are the only parts of the quest that never changed. Everything else was either revised or moved to a subsequent release.
  • Barring two characters, every new NPC in this quest has had at least one name change.
  • Assuming you’ve turned your sound on, the person you play as and the unsettling atmosphere are supposed to clash. On one hand, you’re walking headfirst into an unknown danger. On the other hand, you’re playing as someone you’re equally unsure of—which can result in one of two things. You might either feel more at ease from what you know (or don’t know) about that character, or end up being gripped by their fear as well.
  • The Hero was originally supposed to make an appearance towards the end of this quest, but it was unnecessary and would’ve ended up like the Tournament finale.


That’s pretty much all I had for you this week! Thanks for reading, and see you next time!

Return to Lymcrest!

Hey heroes!

This week is the first quest in Aeon's new questline: Six Heroes.

Lim's looking for some missing shipments of metals from Lymcrest, and it's up to the hero to find out what's happened.

Time to revisit Lymcrest. It can't have changed that much, right?

Head to Ash in Book 3 and look for a NEW quest button!

PS: Due to the number of quests that now require completion of the Tournament of Champions from the Bk3 Swordhaven Quest Board, I will be adding an easier mode for those 2 quests in the near future.


What's next? Have theories or ideas?

So, what really happened?

Hello heroes!

You've heard the tales from Tinsel and Holly, and they were almost unbelievable!

Chilly the evil necromancer, Chilly the gallant paladin! It's quite hard to imagine Chilly as either of those, really. 

Now it's time to learn the truth... straight from Chilly himself!

Also, the presents will open tomorrow, on the last day of December. Make sure to check back before the Frostval book goes away in order to unwrap your Frostval gifts!

Happy holidays, and have a great new year!

Happy Frostval


It is also the last weekend for the December Dragonlord bonus! Get your bonus Dragon Coins before December ends!
