That's right, we now have MORE Artix Entertainment 2011 Year of the Moglin calendars to sell you! Our first print run of them sold out in under FOUR DAYS! We know that not everyone who wanted one got a chance to order a calendar (and get the AWESOME Chronomancer class!), so we've ordered another 1,000 calendars from the printer!
If you waited to order before and missed out, NOW is your chance to grab one of these rare merch items! We've already sold over 200 calendars from the second batch, and they're going fast! If YOU want to own the Chronomancer class in DragonFable and AQWorlds, the Chronomancer armor in AdventureQuest, and the Chronos Mech in MechQuest, this is the time to head to HeroMart and grab your chance!
The calendar sells for $12.00 USD plus shipping. (A good idea if you want to buy multiple things from HeroMart is to buy them all at once. That way you'll save on shipping costs!)
The calendars are selling fast and we don't know if we'll print more after this second print run is gone, so if you want to make sure to have a GORGEOUS calendar on your wall and an AWESOME armor in your backpack, then click on this link to HeroMart and pick up a calendar of your own. Time is running out! (Time NEVER runs out for Chronomancers!)

It's a Sneak Peek Wednesday once more, and I think you're going to REALLY like what we'll be showing you: the Chronomancer's skill list!
I know there's been a ton of chatter about DragonFable's newest class on Twitter and the forums, but if you haven't heard about it yet, here's some important information to remember:
Chronomancer class is the in-game promotional item attached to Artix Entertainment's first Calendar, the 2011 Year of the Moglin! This calendar features 12 of your favorite female NPCs from AdventureQuest, DragonFable, MechQuest, and AQWorlds! (You'll also receive the Chronomancer class in AQWorlds, Chronos Mech in MQ, and the Chronomancer armor in AQ when you purchase the calendar!)
The calendar goes up on HeroMart for Pre-orders on Thursday, November 11th! (That's tomorrow!) We only have a limited number of calendars, so you'll definitely want to be one of the first in line to get your pre-order in to make sure you get ALL these AMAZING rewards!
The calendar is only $12.00 USD, which is a GREAT deal!
Lets move now from great deals to even greater skills! Rolith, Aelthai, and Tomix all pulled together to come up with an awesome list of Chrono-skills, so without further ado, lets fast forward into the skills section of this Design Notes!
- Time Orb: distorts opponent's reality. Reduction to opponent's chance to hit.
- Time Storm: replays hits of damage over time. A damage over time skill.
- Chronolock: freezes time for the opponent. 3 turn stun.
- ChronoSphere: magical orb which buffs defenses.
- Mana Steal: slip through time to steal opponent's mana.
- Fast Forward: resets your cooldowns.
- Record: 3-strike attack dealing 150% damage.
- Multi: Bend time to allow you to hit multiple opponents at once.
- Time Bomb: Use the flow of time itself to reduce damage.
- Rewind: Roll back time to a point where you have more health. A heal skill.
- Overclock: Show time who is boss! Attack skill + 40% damage buff.
- Age: The younger (more healthy) your opponent, the more damage you do! Attack skill dealing damage based on mob's current health.
- MEANWHILE!: Your opponent should never look away, because while he's doing it, you're attacking! Final attack skill.
- Blink!: An extra turn? What? Wait! We can DO that?!
There are some AWESOME skills on this list (giving you an extra turn? HOW do we do that? Rolith assures me it works, but it sure SOUNDS like you're manipulating the game. Good for you, Chronomancers!) And if you can guess which of the skills is a tribute to Doctor Who (some of us are HUGE Who fans!) then you get a Tempus treat!
Time flies, and so must I. Back to working on this week's release! I hope to battle YOU in Chronomancer class armor in DF's PVP! Want a sneak peek of the armor? Battle 232339 or 35 to get in-game sneak peeks of the female and male Chronomancer armors!

Hello hello! It's Monday again, and Autumn is falling all over itself to flood the land around the Secret Underground Lab with grey skies and chilly winds. It's wonderful that Fall is finally here! Time for apple cider and pumpkin pie! What do YOU like to do in the Fall? Jump in leaf piles? Drink Pumpkin Spice lattes?
What I'd like to do right now, though, is tell you about what's coming up in this week's release! We're continuing TWO Orb sagas this week!
The Stone Orb starts rockin' again!
Geopetal is working on the next Stone Orb quest! That was underway before we took a break for Mogloween, and we're excited to be getting back to it. We've got a lot of plans up our sleeves for this one, so make sure you follow along and if you haven't been keeping up to date on the chain, head to Willowshire and have fun playing the previous quests!
Shedding light on the Darkness Orb!
I'll be working on beginning to finish up the captivating story of the luckless Vayle and the elusive Darkness Orb! In the first part of this two-part mini quest chain, you'll need to gather some help from a VERY useful NPC nearby and then find clues to where Vayle is hiding! (You'd go to ground, too, if you'd been through everything she's lived through!)
True Mortal is making some super-awesome helm and cape rewards for the quest, so you can look forward to those, too! Again, if you aren't up-to-date on the Darkness Orb Saga, you'll definitely want to make time to go questing in Doomwood before this Friday!
Miscellany and odds and ends!
And here's some bits of news to keep in mind:
- The DoomKnight bug where the double-hit is doing 400% damage WILL be fixed this week, so if you're lucky enough to have the armor, take advantage of this oversight on our parts while you can!
- The Doom Phoenix helm will be put into the Mysterious Stranger's Doom Helm shop at some point this week, so if you'd like to purchase it, it'll be available from him! His shop's motto: One for all and all for DOOOOOOOM!
HeroMart has all your merchandise needs!
Like music? How about reading? What about stuffed animals? HeroMart has got all that and MORE and we're ready to deliver it straight to YOU! (For a list of the 41 countries we deliver to, see this list.)
This past Friday our very first full-length novel, The Dragon's Secret, went on sale! With 232 pages of action-packed fun, this is is definitely a read you won't want to miss out on! (Bonus: Talk to your teacher and see if you can get extra-credit for reading outside of class!)
It comes with a special weapon in AQW, the baby kraken pet in DF, a weapon in MQ and a LOT of stuff in AQ classic!
The AE 2011 Year of the Moglin Calendar will go on PRE-SALE on HeroMart this Thursday, but probably won't be delivered until later November. We did have a few on hand at ShadoCon this weekend so if you're running around AQWorlds, you might just be lucky enough to see their version of it. You can see a preview of DragonFable's crazy-insane version by taking a look at the banner on the homepage.
Not only do you get the Chronomancer class in AQWorlds and the Chronomancer class in DragonFable, but you get the Chronos Mech in MechQuest and a Chronomancer armor in AQ classic! That's a HUGE amount of rewards for a calendar that only costs $12.00 USD!
ShadoCon totally not overshadowed!
This weekend some of the friendly staff at the Artix Entertainment Secret Underground Lab traveled a little ways away to ShadoCon! We knew we'd be seeing our friends Kimberly and Junior from One-Eyed Doll there, and so we figured WE'D set up a merch booth there, too!
For tales from ShadoCon, take a look at Cysero's Design Notes over on the AQWorlds Design Notes page!
Have a great Monday and enjoy speculating on what the quests this week will contain! You can always contact us on Twitter or the forums if you'd like to leave us comments or feedback, too! We look forward to talking with you! :)
