This week's release is a return to Stoneheart Fall!You can reach Stoneheart Fall from Lymcrest in Book 2 (down, right, down from Lymcrest), or you can use the button in the quest log to go there instantly this week!
Thanks to some newly uncovered tech, Tomix was able to add a whole new layer of depth to this quest- and it looks gorgeous. We hope to use this technology to create even more beautiful and wondrous quests in the future!
Unfortunately, due to an earlier typo in the code from when it was first released, you will need to redo the quest "Dive In" (if you have already completed it) in order to access the new quest.
Now, note from Eric Greydawn about this week's release:
The past is a difficult country to traverse. One of the reasons this is so difficult is because history is most often recorded with cultural bias. What we see as simple, other cultures may not see as being quite so cut and dried. In the case of the Ice Giants, most of what is known of them is based on supposition and conjecture. Certainly SOMETHING happened. We haven’t seen Ice Giants in DragonFable up to this point. That suggests that something MUST have happened. What was it? What drove the Ice Giants to the extreme reaches of the North? What were the Ice Giants like?
With this quest, you will begin a journey for knowledge. Knowledge that has been lost, or obscured over time. There’s a lot to unravel still. Fear not, however, for there are those who are willing to guide you on your quest for knowledge. Be brave, and journey north, where the occasional whisper of living Ice Giants other than Nivalis have been seen.
This quest has been a long time in coming, but now that it’s here, and I’ve started writing again, they will continue. I have a lot to tell you yet, so snuggle up and get comfy… perhaps a fire should be lit on the hearth, and a pot of hot stew served… after all, hospitality demands it.
In other news- This is your last week to purchase the Doomed Dragon Scythe! Get it from the Celebration Shops in the Book of Lore before it leaves!
In the desert, there’s really not much to do. Stay out of the sun in the heat of the day… Take a nap…enjoy the cool night air. Stars spread out above you and you can almost believe you can see infinity. Of course, having nothing to do but watch stars for a century or two and you might end up being mad enough to start writing on the walls.
I’ve had to rebuild, redesign, and completely rethink this quest a number of times while finding a way to make it work. I had originally intended for this quest to be a single large quest. TM and I had gone as far as creating a 96 room labyrinth. Unfortunately, the sheer size of the project made it undoable. I went back to the drawing board a few times before we came up with a solution that would work. Enter today’s quest… you will have to determine which four random quests out of six to complete that will let you pass on to the Sandsea Gate. The clues as to which doors you must pass through to complete the quest can be found in the quest itself. At the end of each random is an ignis gem. Touch it and the quest will be complete. HOWEVER…if you go through the wrong quest… MWAHAHAHAHA!!! . Goodluck!*
Next week: We asked and so far the answer has been a resounding yes. The poll is still going on, but the house should be ready. There will also be another shop, filled with weapons, helms, and wings created by Cronix!
*on the plus side, even the wrong quests have drops.
Well, it’s been a long time since TM was hurt in that car accident. We’ve seen signs of his recovery appearing in game, and finally, tonight, we have a new offering for you. You’ve been introduced to the Khy’Rhian in the course of TMs saga. Finally, you will learn more about them, as well as the shadowy necromancer who created them. What his purpose was in creating them we will never know, but perhaps you can learn how they were made, and what force compels them to serve Nivalis.
It’s been a long trying week. Fortunately TM has fully recovered and to help slide you back into his story, we are bringing you the tale of Vae’Kan… a mysterious necromancer who may have a clue for you as to how the Khy’Rhian were created. True Mortal is now back in his accustomed spot, and is ready to send you to meet this Vae’Kan. Good Luck, and have a great weekend! True Mortal created all the art for this, as well as the weapon. True Mortal is also making his musical debut in DragonFable with a creepy musical track!
I will also be adding a new house shop to Stoneheart Fall early next week with lots of the new, creepy furnishings made by True Mortal found in The Maker!
Chapter 2 Finale I'm so sorry, but we've had to delay the Finale of this chapter until next week. Wargoth is sticking and we all want to make sure that you guys have the most epic boss fight possible here! Trust me, Ghost, Rolith, and Verlyrus have done some simple amazing things with this boss fight and the titan fight and it is worth the wait!
We all know things don’t always go the way we like. I had hoped to be able to work a bit more this week, but unfortunately that didn’t work out quite well. I am slowly recovering, and obviously not as fast as I want, but we do what we got to do, and do our best while doing that. I am eager to start drawing again, even if it will cost me more effort to do so. Luckily there is a whole team that is able to help me get through the work that needs to be done! They worked hard to get the quest ready for tomorrow, and I’m very* grateful for that.
In the previous quest, you had your patience tested while in search of the hidden Forest Gate and the guards that stand sentinel there. In this week’s release, you’ll finally be able to fight Wolf and Bear in a boss fight! The quality they will be testing is Strength. As you might know, strength is necessary, but just one of the many, many qualities you need being a hero. If you succeed in this challenge, your journey will be continued, and as you progress, all the important qualities will be tested!
If you feel up for the challenge that they will put you through, log in Friday!
