Upon the winds you will find a whisper of doom, "Grimskull is coming." We thought he was just something the Paladins thought up to scare the young Knights in training. The slight possibility he could be real sends a shiver down my spine.
The rumors say Grimskull is coming... but if the stories are true, it will not be this week. It will not be when you expect it. It could happen at any time, any place... all that you know is it WILL HAPPEN. When it does, it will happen in AdventureQuest Worlds.
Here we go... 3 weeks into this DL revamp now and I'm sure glad it's Friday! I spent the better part of the last 2 weeks just on the animations for DL, and then I was fried so I took monday off to go camping with my wife*, and then this week I was like yeah no problem, I'll setup the color custom version of normal dragonlord, and apply the art for evo dragonlord, and setup the cc version version of evo on Tuesday. No problem, cause I can just copy it all over from the originals right?!
Noop! I can't. And so therefore it took way the heck longer than a day, lol. Oh man, I am always doing that to myself... having no concept of how much time something actually might take. So what I did manage to do for this week was setup the color custom DL, and the evolved DL. Those are done, art&animation-wise! And I'm getting close to done on the color custom evolved DL**, but I think that'll have to wait until next week.
Good thing the Dragonlord shields are made out of super lightweight magical metal, or that one arm is going to be HUGE!
So what that means is that all versions except ccEDL will have the new animations, and should be released later tonight. Rol is still typing his fingers off getting all versions of dragonlord buffed and coded properly, so stay tuned because I think he'll be updating that part tonight as well. Whenever it's done though, I'm sure it will be up to snuff. Also tonight we will be releasing Braughlmurk Cape! An epic location that you'll be able to access via the travel gryphon in falconreach with a total of 6, yes you heard me right, 6! random dungeons! Holy Magicarp! Geo's been working ridonkulously hard to bring that to you tonight and I believe you will enjoy the drops... And last but not least we will be launching a new house for dragonlords that Dracelix has been working on, later this weekend! It'll be available in the town of Dragonsgrasp some time Saturday. Wow, that was a lot of info.. I'd better go underline the main points or it'll be hard to skim.
What a psycho week, I'm goin' camping.
* Such a great de-stresser! It's been beautiful here in Eastern Canada, and spending a few nights in a tent breathing the fresh air has been fantastic!
** Let's just call em' DL, ccDL, EDL, and ccEDL from now on. So. Much. Typing.
So many people on soooo many different projects! The DragonFable team is super busy this week!
Braughlmurk Cape The ruins of a once great Paladin order sit on the edge of a foggy beach.... Are you brave enough to explore the fallen towers and murky crypts? Will you venture into one of it's many random dungeons and collect the Braughlmurk Bindings and Shadow Bone Shards left behind from the great battle that destroyed the Cape town? Robin and Roblos are betting you are....

MOP Hits Amityvale! Eric Greydawn, the Lady and Chainsword all converged on the office this week and have determined that something... several somethings, are disturbing the wildlife in the woods outside of Amityvale! This week a new random quest will appear on the Amityvale path to help the MOP team clear out those woods!
In other words, Eric now can make random quests! He just laughed evilly when I asked how big the map was going to be....
DragonLord Things Ghost is working on getting the evolved and color custom versions of the DragonLord Armor available for you guys this week! Rolith has also been following the thread about the skills on the forums and will be working on the class on Friday.
Dracelix has also created an amazing new house for DF's birthday that will be available Friday in Dragonsgrasp!
The Iglica - Coming Soon! Tomix is working on the next Atrea expansion! The Iglica (the word for spire in Atealan) towers in the center of Atrea. It houses the throne room of the Atealan Empress and the training rooms for the Atealan classes!
Tomix wanted me to point out the shading is not done yet!
The Iglica will not open this week, but soooooooon!
Tomix is also working on the backgrounds for a very twisted dreamscape. Kathool isn't back... so who's mind (or minds!) are you going to venture into?!
