What's red and green and very, very evil?
The Resident Sneevil- Code: SALL-IE release this week! The Red Queen's programming has evolved beyond even what the genious CEO of the Parasol Corporation could have imagined... Log in this weekend to find out exactly what she has in store!
We've got some VERY green, VERY awesome rewards for the Resident Sneevil release this week, too! Here's a peek at them courtesy of True Mortal:
What's green-not-orange or orange-not-green?
Your hero as they make up their mind on preferring Science or Magic in The Clashening's finale! Of course, there COULD be a third option... but Lim wouldn't stand for that, would he? Help save the future of the past of the present in "CyseRedux," this week's Clashening finale!
And we ALSO have some awesome rewards for THIS release, too! Tomix and Lim each took a share of the work to provide you with some nifty new helms and an Energy weapon set!
The helms are like SO, being hairstyle-helms (including Lim's beard!) with some sweet stats:
And, as for the weapon-set, Flash is cranky and won't let me preview it for you. /kickFlash So I'll just tease you with a description! The art for the weapon-set is based off the look of the Technomancer armor. There's a staff, hammer, and daggers and they look PRETTY SWEET!
What is brown and brown and brown and gooey?
S'mores! Let me tell you, a GREAT way to celebrate Tuesday (or Monday, or Sunday, or really any day of the week) is to pull out the grill with your family and make delicious, ooey-gooey s'mores just for fun!
Of course, if you prefer healthier grilled desserts, skewering pineapple chunks and then grilling those until they're carmelized and brown is a GREAT way to have a healthy snack with ALL the flavor of candy! Mmm mmm grill marks.
Summer might be done, but there's still time to get outside and enjoy the sun and any lingering heat from last season!
Enjoy speculating about this week's release! See you Friday!

Happy Birthday, Rolith!
It's Monday! Monday, Monday, Monday! Let's get ready to Rumblllllllle!
Except there won't be any rumbling today. Not on Rolith's birthday! No fighting allowed, only cake. And cupcakes. And chocolate fondue. Now THAT's an ooey, gooey birthday surprise! Rolith doesn't know it yet, but in about an hour, everyone in the Secret Underground Lab is going to crowd into the DF/AQW room and surprise him with a PARTY! Whoooooo!
If you'd like to wish Rolith a happy birthday, feel free to use his Twitter (@Rolith_AE) or post on the forum. We wish we had enough cake for everyone to share, but you all know it's a lie anyways, right? (Except for the breakfast cupcakes he had. Those were real.) Happy birthday, Rol, from all of us on the DragonFable team, and your Artix Entertainment family!
Coming this week!
That was the great fun. Now here's the good news! We've got some awesome releases planned for you this week!
Are you ready to continue your adventures with Resident Sneevil: Revelations? You'd better be, because there's going to be a LOT involved in it! Including the introduction of the mysterious Tactical Assault Reconnaissance Team....
That's not all, though! We've also got a Clashening quest planned for this Friday's release! It's the lead-up to the final quest, and Lim is NOT going to like where Cysero takes his experiment THIS time! But we've got a VERY pretty star-filled night sky background planned, and hopefully an intergalactic space-monster if Tomix has time. Anyone got a spool of string to spare? We're going to need it!
And in news of future releases, I promised you guys some information on the voice-acting event that will take place in DragonFable come this November. (Artix spilled the beans about it in the AQW Design Notes on Friday, hehe!)
The event will star Lim, George Lowe (yes, THE George Lowe of Space Ghost and Cartoon Network fame*), Cysero, and Serenity as judges in our event: Falconreach Idle! What better way to help Lim find a new Weaponshop assistant than to hold, you guessed it, a TALENT competition?! (Just look at the superstars that have exploded out of all the current TV talent shows. Our characters are WAY more talented than that! /nod) Contestants will include Aria, YOU, and a brand-new character in a battle to explode into STARdom!
* “Space Ghost” and “Cartoon Network”are both registered trademarks of Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. A Time Warner Company.
There's your teaser! I'm off to go hunt down Faith and see where the cake is. Mmmm, liecake!
PS: Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! If you like Seasonal Rares (and we know many of you do!) then check out the Canadian Thanksgiving shop in AdventureQuest Worlds for some really neat items!
BladeHaven Beta Release
Beta for BladeHaven is scheduled to begin on Thursday. The Beta will use the ONE LOGIN TO RULE THEM ALL (Your BattleOn Portal Master Account login!) and will be open to Guardians, DragonLords, Star Captains, AQWorlds Members and... um... we have no idea what Epic Duel players that upgraded are called... but yup, them too. Bladehaven is a first person sword fighting game. It features achievements that will earn your master account EXP.

Hello, all! Sadly, I have some bad news for you if you're a fan of Ravenloss. Tomix is feeling a little under the weather and has had to take the last week off, plus an indetermined amount of the future to get better.
We don't want him to stress about work AT ALL, so we've told him not to worry about working on the Ravenloss backgrounds while he recuperates. We knew you'd understand!
All the scripts are written out for Ravenloss; we just need the background art and cutscene animation to finish the quest chain! So we're NOT going to forget about the chain, we promise. What this means for you is that for the next couple weeks, we'll release Clashening quests (only 3 left!) while we give Tomix some time to relax and get back on his feet.
turtle string time machine << These words have NOTHING to do with the three quests in the rest of the Clashening chain. Nope. Not a thing. Nada. Zilch. But if they DID, they might give you an idea of what to expect. :)
We'll have the next Resident Sneevil quest for you on Friday (Resident Sneevil: Genesis!) along with (hopefully) the next Clashening quest! AND some new weapons in the Player Suggestion shop from Clyde and Tokijin!
Please wish Tomix speedy healing while he rests up; we'll definitely be doing the same!
