Black Friday!

Hey there!

For this year's Black Friday, we have something different for you.

No usual weapon and accessory deals this time, I'm afraid.

Instead, we have something very special.

Something that has been requested for a long time!

Are you ready for it?!

A house item* that... LETS YOU REVISIT ANY OF THE SEASONAL BOOKS AND EVENTS!!!

May I present to you... the Storybook Collection!

I wanted to name it the Holiday Excerpts, but Verly wouldn't let me...

Available now from the Book of Lore, from the Black Friday shop, on a discounted price of 2500 Dragon Coins.

Once Black Friday ends (Monday!), it will still be available, but for a full price. So get it while it's hot!

We really hope you enjoy this item, I had a lot of fun making it!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!!

 

*Reminder that house items are Dragon Amulet holders only!

A Boneheaded Brawl!

The 2017 Thankstaking Finale is here! Head over to the Thankstaking book to play it.

I wanted to have a bit of fun with this, and I hope you have fun as well.  There’s still more on the horizon. The villains aren’t done yet… not by a long shot. So dig in and Battle On.  Happy Thanksgiving to all our American players, and for the rest of you, may you have a wonderful week.

The Felonious Five!

The Thankstaking release is LIVE!

Straight from under Eric's pen! (Or keyboard? Hmm...)

The last decade has seen a HUGE surge in movies based on comic books. Among the most popular of those movies are the big team movies like the ones recently produced by two major comic book companies. As I was working on this, I was thinking about a quest I played in AQ where several villains teamed up.  I thought to myself, WHY haven’t we done this in DF? We’ve even got our own established superheroes. While the two quests surrounding Thankstaking are being written as a fun holiday quest, I also feel like it lays groundwork for some entertaining future quests.  
    
I often ask myself, if the Hero were to suit up as a superhero, what costume would the hero wear?  The answer, of course is that it’s impossible to say because ultimately, YOU, dear friends, ARE the Hero, and everyone’s vision is different.
    
For twelve years, villains have taken a shot at destroying Thankstaking.  They always had their own reasons, not necessarily good ones, but reasons nevertheless.  This time I wanted to bring some old friends together for a bit of mayhem.  The reason given seems transparent enough, but these villains are a cagey lot, and things aren’t always what they seem.

Thankstaking is a fun holiday for me to write stories for because we can step out of the seriousness of major storylines and have a bit of lighthearted humor. Thankstaking is a time to enjoy yourself, enjoy the company of your friends and family, and reconnect with them. It’s a time of celebration, and taking the time to be thankful for all the good that keeps our lives bright. To be quite frank, I’ve come to think of all of you as friends, and an important part of my own celebration. Thank you all, and I hope you enjoy this year’s holiday feast of entertainment.

2017 Thankstaking Teaser!

Thankstaking is coming once again, and this year is shaping up to be one super gathering of friends. 

What better way to celebrate great victories and achievements than a great feast with everyone who sacrificed so much this year? You’ve all fought hard this year, and faced some steep odds.  It’s time for a well-deserved break and a bit of frivolity.

Unfortunately, as always, there are some less than savory elements out there… agents of chaos, if you will, who would love nothing better than to disturb the peaceful gathering of friends. Five shadowy figures, who have gathered together for a nefarious purpose, even now are turning their eyes towards Falconreach.

But… why?

Friday, it will once again be time to head into Falconreach ahead of the festivities to make sure that everything runs smoothly.

Mogloween the 13th War: Blood Moon!

Ok, so, yeaaaaaah...

Not REALLY "Mogloween the 13th" today, but we're still going with it, because why not!

The release is finally live, sorry for the 2-day delay.

It's a war that I think you can breeze through in one week, just in time for the Mogloween finale!

Please enjoy!


PS from Verlyrus:
Bug where guests would end up with NaN mana has been fixed
A couple of monsters sticking has been fixed too (may require cache clear)

Tomix's sick :(

I'm coming down with a nasty cold right now, so I just wanted to let you know that the release will most likely be on Saturday... or later :(

Verly is still hard at work with coding the Shadow Walker of Time, so we're expecting it to come out this month, or at the beginning of the next.

Sick Tomix out.

The Branden Quarter!

It’s Friday and the release is live!

Head on over to Book 3 Swordhaven by the Library to pick up the quest from a member of The Rose in need of your aid! It’s up to you whether you want to help them or not... but know that they sure could use a hand. Trouble is brewing in parts of Swordhaven that are the most left behind and The Rose’s military cannot sit on its laurels.



Have a good weekend everyone!


Engine update from Verlyrus:

  • A new Dragon Amulet only page has been added to the Book of Lore that will allow you to invite guests outside of quests.
    • There are two spots left on the guest page! Let us know on the forums who you'd like to see summonable from the Book of Lore! Aegis? Mritha? Let us know!
  • Guests now recieve healing from all sources outside of battle.

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!

Release tomorrow!

It has been a crazy two weeks for me, Verly, and the other members of the DF Team!

I've finished renovating my room, finally moved back in this Tuesday, and simply didn't have enough time to finish up this week's release...

(Personally, I think the week needs another day, after Friday and before Saturday. Called Tomixneedsmoretimeday!)

So, I'll hopefully have it ready tomorrow!!!

It's quite long (by... umm... our DF quest standards, at least), so you might enjoy it!

Aeon did a great job and we can't wait for you to experience his worldbuilding.

Here are two sneak peeks!

The Six Heroes Saga continues!

The Six Heroes Saga picks up again this week!

We’ve received reports of suspicious military activity within Greenguard Forest. After the recent events of the Gala, it’s understandable that they’d be on high alert, but… perhaps there’s more to it?

Queen of Swordhaven

The King has been wounded!!!

It's not looking good.

While you, Melissa and your hurt companion make your way to Sulen'Eska, the resistance encampment, things are being set in motion over at Swordhaven.

Head over to Kara and to the newest quest!

The Nest Robber

Hey everyone!
As some of you might remember, while ago you were invited by Messimy to visit “The Nest” a Rose-build orphanage.
Now it’s time to see how the hero does on their second day at the orphanage.
There’s questions to answer like:
Who’s the mysterious shadow?
What does the hero need to do?
Where DOES Messimy work out?
Could Ash still be right about all this being a trap?
Will I ever stop asking and creating questions?
So log in now and travel to The Nest and maybe you’ll get some answers!*

*Answers are not guaranteed.


 

We've had some stupid issues with this quest and were, unfortunatelly, unable to fix them. And we tried HARD. They do however... fix themselves after you reload the game...

We've added a visual notification to let you know if your quest will play fine or not.

Please bear with us on this one and follow our instructions to play this week's quest :c

Harboring an Alien!?

Hello there!

This week, we have for you a short, sweet quest.

A new... peculiar... request has been added to the Serene Inn's "Odd Jobs" board.

It's about a ship wreckage, deep within the waters of Falconreach's docks.

I recon it's worth checking out. Old, forgotten things often tell interesting stories.

Thorough search of this wreckage might prove... fruitful.

Also, Verlyrus has retouched the notify pop up system. Pop up notifications now last 4 times longer before fading, and can be dismissed by clicking on them.

Artifact Heist!

Willowshire’s Guardian Tower is under attack by Manaphages and the Thorns are to blame!

What could they gain from attacking the Guardians? Perhaps this has something to do with the spell that Theano stole from the people of Clearwater? Belle needs your help evacuating the civilians and the Guardians.

Hurry and put a stop to Theano’s evil plot… Before it's too late!

Head over to Ash in Book 3 and play the newest Thorn quest!

Are Rocks Evil?

Thanks for waiting!
The release is live!!!

Head over to Sulen'Eska in Book 3 and speak with Kara to find out what happens after the attack on Jaania.

Did she have it coming? Can she prevail?

And can you escort the King and Princess Victoria to safety?

"Are rocks evil?" Find out tomorrow!

Ugh, I keep doing this!

I'm taking on more than I can handle...

Today's release is being being moved to tomorrow, Saturday.

There is still a lot I have to do for the cutscenes, I need to make the magic duel look right (+ some other things), and Verly is preparing some cool mechanics for the monsters.

I don't want to cut content from this release, so we decided to move it, rather than release today and move parts of the cutscene to next main story release.

So, one extra day... I hope you can bear with us (for the nth time :c ) and wait until tomorrow!

Take a peek at what is coming up tomorrow!

There will be a LOT going on, as you can see!

Stay tuned!

SoulForge Update!

Hey everybody!

This week we have for you a small release: an update to the SoulForge, featuring axes, wands, and scythes!

I spent most of this week on ongoing assignments, like animating the calendar class, which is very close to being complete.

I am also planning to go back to the other forgotten features of DragonFable and slowly but surely start updating them. We'll be having those as gameplay improvement releases (like today's one is) in the future!

Next week, prepare for the next installment of the main storyline!

Feta Finale!

Hey ho Havarti!

At long last the finale of the (if I may say so myself) cheesiest questline is here!
After getting the vision from the camembert of clairvoyance San Robin knows where to go! Join him once more to find the bandits he’s been hunting for all this time.
Will you find out more about San Robin, and perhaps, he’ll find out something about himself as well?
There’s just one way to find out! Log in and find San Robin in the Book 1 Falconreach Inn!

It has been a blast to write these quests and I hope everyone enjoyed them.
However, finishing this chain doesn’t mean I’ll stop writing quests, oh no!
I have many more ideas in store and of course the quests around the Rose Orphanage!
I’m looking forward to writing more for you guys and I hope you also look forward to my future quests.

Hoping you all have a gouday!
~San Robin

The guests have spoken!

Hey guys!

I am happy to announce that Verly has fixed guests of the Inn at the Edge of Time not talking to you.

They are now ready to share their stories!

Just a note... some of them (or... you?) are quite... something, indeed!

Hunt for Bradychwyd

Yo!

This week the Doom Dragon Scythe shop is returning for Dragonfable's 11th Anniversary! You can get the Doomed Dragon Scythe of Elementals for the full price of 5,000 DCs or the Doomed Dragon Amulet Scythe of Elementals 500 if you have a Dragon Amulet. The shops will be here for a little while before they're gone until the next anniversary comes around.

Otherwise, there's a small quest this week! There's a new request for help at the Swordhaven Quest Board! A dragonlord and his dragon who's got a reeeeally bad case of Laryngitis are stranded just South-West of Swordhaven and need a brave volunteer (aka not the dragonlord) to administer the medicine witho—

Wait. Hold on.

Hmmm…

Huh.

The request is gone. Maybe someone took care of it already? Well! Things sure move fast in Swordhaven! I guess there's nothing to do after a—

Oh.

Wait... There's a new request up actually. Things really do go fast! Let's see…

Hmmm.

It’s a bit of strange request... Not sure what this guy is after.

Well, you’re better at this than me. Think you can do it?

 


 

I also have some preview of the next week's release for you!

It will be a challenge arena, that will be updated frequently with new ferocious monsters and incredible loot!

The first week of challenges will involve... DRAGONS!!!

Who will be giving you the challenges?

Well...

...

YOU, of course!

The other versions of you from other timelines of the multiverse!

Happy weekend,

~The DF Team

Gorillaphant Warfare!

Happy Father’s Day!

Since that’s Sunday… you better not forget! To celebrate Father’s Day this year, the Father’s Day shop is back in up and running in the Book of Lore. Get your Father’s Day weapons while they’re here! They'll be gone for another year in a few weeks.

This week, you’ll return where the Hero and Sir Leon were left off in the most recent Shears quest, confronted by a previous Rose acquaintance! You might have fought them before, but don’t expect things to be easy! Gorillaphant Warfare is never pretty!

Head over to the Shears in Book 3, and if you are up-to-date with the quest line, speak to Leon!


 
Also, as part of our 11th Anniversary event, from now through June 30th, every character that logs in will receive 500 free Dragon Coins!

 


We have also updated next batch of classes with the new heads!

These are:

  • Pyromancer
  • SoulWeaver and Master SoulWeaver
  • Archivist
  • TimeKiller
  • ChronoZ

Next week, batch number 3!
 
Also, a word from Elryn:
 
Greetings and good Friday everyone
 
Since the end of the first part of the Dragon rider War, Dracelix and I have been wanting to do more regarding The Shears and the Storyline of Sir Leon and his friends in arms. Sanctuary’s Return is part of a new chain where we will have the chance to do just that. The chain will likely start slowly and pick up further along as the series of quests progress. There will be potential to uncover curious stories for some of the NPCs Dracelix has had for a while and perhaps more yet.
 
For now though, you should focus on getting out scot-free of the Rose Research facility you just casually stormed, whose Rose masters you have disturbed and unexpected prisoner found. A battle of gorillaphant tactics awaits you.
 
Cheers and happy weekend!

Expressive Heads!

Mid-week DNs, yay!

Today I have some news for you. While working on the new character models, I also did some work on the heads, to make them more expressive.

For example: before, eyes had two stages - open and closed. Now, they have eleven stages! Whoooo!

Mouths have more stages as well!

See for yourself.

Unfortunately, we've run into some problems with the eyes.

They do not have a separate option for color customization, so I had to link them to the "trim" CC option. This makes them sometimes... not work as intended (not saving desired colors, or reverting to a default color)

Adding a separate eye CC code is actually a very big project, so while Verly might be working on it in the future, don't hold your breath.

I am currently in the process of replacing old heads with new ones in ALL of the previous classes!

This ALSO will take a while, but I'll do it in batches every week. Starting with the DragonLord armors.

So, there's that for today. Just wanted to let you know what I'm working on, aside from new classes.

As for this week's release, you will be continuing the investigation of the Rose research base with Sir Leon!
