Still Alive!

I'm making a note here. Huge success! (Ok, maybe I am a few years behind the times. I will get caught up. Rolith will make sure of that.) I wanted to hop on here and say hi to you guys, we haven't spoken in a while! (Or to be more accurate, I haven't typed at you for a few weeks.)

How've you been? I've been keeping up with you guys on the DF forum and on Twitter, and y'all seem to be having a blast with what's been going on in DragonFable. And let me tell you, it is only going to get BETTER! Much, much, much, WAY better. Rolith would call that a combo-breaker. +1000 pts!

You wouldn't happen to know of an unlucky day coming up anytime soon. Oh, you have? Eeeeexcellent. You just keep an eye on that little square on the calendar, and be sure to keep free of commitments, because you are going to want to be parked behind your computer, Mountain Dew in one hand and mouse in the other.  It's going to be... well. I was an English major. I write for a living. And I am at a loss to describe what is coming up. Get ready to be flabbergasted!



I've got some fun stuff to talk about, too. (Not that DF isn't always fun. But this stuff is offline-fun!) You guys might remember that recently I went to Ireland. I did not meet any Sneevilchauns, but I saw some amazing scenery, multiple double-rainbows (so intense!), and had one of the best times of my life exploring an incredible country.

Is melting!

Monday, April 25, 2011

I'm in Florida!

..and ohmagawsh, I am melting. This is my first time meeting any of the AE team, and it's been a really cool experience. On the way home from the office today I am so totally picking up some ice to duct tape to my head though. Srsly.

Anyways, in DF last week we saw some spoilerrific events that I won't even mention cause dude you have to play it.. and now you've probably figured our final job in the Earth Orb saga will be to hide the treasured Blade of Awe!  Which means.. that no you will not be able to keep the sword. It's too important that it remains as far away from Seppy as possible.  But!  Before you say "Awe, man!".. True Mortal has whipped up some KILLER weapons inspired by the Blade of Awe, and we're going to give them an awe-inspiring special attack!

Happy Grenwog!

I hope everyone is having a pleasant Grenwog! The special Grenwog shops are now live. This year we have a special Grenwog Cave House* (for those of you who prefer rocks to walls!) created by Ghost and a special Grenwog Egg cape and helms from Tomix. The cape and helm will show a different dragon egg design everytime you reload your character! Tomix has added some new ones too... how many are there now?

There is also a new item in the normal "Stuff" shop through Cysero's Orb. The Grenwog Egg Clutch will (/cough as long as I don't forget /cough) go rare will the rest of the items though!

Enjoy the rest of your Grenwog and BattleOn!

*Note: If you use a background with the house it will be camoflagued on the outside! Rolith will work on getting the Grenwog's house Cave Stealthing Unit disabled. ;)

Earth and Entropy

Chasing after the broken halves of the Earth Orb... betrayed by one of your own party members... then chasing after him, while a dragon overtaken by En and Tropy follows closely after the Orb as well... This week we get to see DragonFable first ever double titan fight! When you're caught between the weilder of the Earth Orb and the decaying hulk of the Entropic Gorgok will you prevail... or will you be crushed?

A special shop of simple, recycled weapons is also in town this weekend for Earth Day 2011! These metal weapons are fully recycled! ;)

Happy Grenwong!
There will be a special Grenwog shop this Sunday. Ghost has created a new Grenwog Cave house and egg clutch to decorate it with! Tomix also supposidly has something up his sleeve to help celebrate.

The 8th Orb is in Play!

Aww, I miss that webcomic (Inktank).  Anyhoo, we've got a rockin' release for you guys
tonight!  Trey Surehunter is unleashing the power of the Blade of Awe and the Earth
Orb together to search out all those treasure he's been meaning to find over the years,
and he will crush anyone who dares to stand in his way!  With all the artifacts he is
acquiring, Trey is steadily growing in power. It's time to end this!  * But… you are not
the only ones trying to find him.  The Entropy dragon, under the command of
Sepulchure is also hot on the trail. It's a race, and you do not want to find out what
happens if you lose. Grab your gear and head to Willowshire!

Also up this week: True Mortal's Fractured weapon set!  Seriously. Get them.

Oh, and there will be a special add-on to one of the walkaround areas connecting the
towns together… A new little area called Stoneheart Fall (not to be confused with
Coldfall Barrens, but watch your step in both places…).  It is a mysterious place filled
with mystery, mist, probably some mystic stuff, and a whole lot of awesome. There isn't
a lot here for you to do yet, but it might grow into something much larger. Stoneheart
Fall is inhabited, sort of, so be on your guard…

*Well, technically you won't be ending the saga this week, but soon you totally will!
And then sentences like that will sound a lot cooler.


Call me Garfield... or don't.

Nature's Keeper!

A new installment of the Earth Orb Saga is ready for you guys! This week you'll get to fight as Fae as she tells the story of how she found the Nature half and escaped an army of fighting elementals. Most importantly... Fae may have the key to getting the full Earth Orb back from Trey Surehunter!


I wasn't even supposed to be in Today

Friday, April 8, 2011


So, let's go through the list of things that happened causing this week's release to be in the state it is currently.

I was not suppsoed to work basically at all this week. I was planning on taking vacation but I'm more then DragonFable's code monkey (I was brought on to the AE team orignally as a webcoder, after all and only got put on the DF team after I blundered into the Mogloween release before MQ came out) and some behind the scenes work came up and I ended up working the second half of the week.

This left little time for me to get ahead on the DF release, but that wasn't a big deal. We've done every part of this week's release before in other quests. Never together, mind you, but each part has been done before, so while there was a boatload of work for Geo and Ghost to do, assembling the final parts of it shouldn't have been that big of a deal. Right? Right.

It was a big deal. I do belive every single component broke in this release. The cutscnes? Wern't advancing right. The Fae class/guest code? Broke and missing some skills that we wanted to go in (I'll see what I can do about getting them in over the weekend, small consolation as that might be.) Moving monsters? Well, you see the occasional sticking one? Well all of them were doing that. The amazing thing is? They're all running the same exact code. So as to why some are sticking and others aren't NO idea.  What's even more stateling is that this code hasn't changed, at all, in over 3 years since Lymcrest was fixed and revisited.  Geo's used it several times to no ill effect, but apparently Flash decided it didn't like it anymore and broke it.  Scaling on monsters didn't work, and while that's not exaclty unheard of, the reason for is (too long to go into details here...) compleatly backwards and shouldn't be wrong.  *sigh*

So, while this release ended up pretty awesome, and the animations on Fae


Thursday, April 7, 2011


Tomorrow we continue with the Earth Orb Saga and answer a few questions about the mysterious Fae and just how she found the Nature half of the orb. Ghost has been hard at work on the cutscenes and a few tricky traps for the quest. True Mortal has also made a beautiful Nature set for the quest rewards!

A Rocky Saga

Happy April!
We started this month off with a bang! Well... with a carnivorius ficus at least! Town has been cleaned up slightly for today, but the shops will be disappearing tonight. The Titan Chickencow will be a permanent addition to Cysero's quests though and the Zurvana Set may be able to be found sometime in the future... (/cough Friday) if you look hard enough.... (Though it's location would most definately be a spoiler if you found it.)

This Week's Release!
This week we will be jumping back into the Earth Orb saga and we'll be answering a few questions about the mysterious girl who found the Nature Half as well. How did Fae find the Nature half? When did she find it? Just how old is she?

AQW Card Game!
The new Adventure Quest Worlds card game will be at Toys-R-Us on April 18th! Check out the official card game website for videos on how to play and a sneak peek at the exclusive Card Clasher class (it's an insanely awesome class made by Minimal) that comes with the game.

April Fools!

Midnight: Happy April Fools, guys! As some of you might ahve guessed, 24 releases in 24 hours is a little crazy... it would take a lot of coffee! A new CMC is up for you guys right now though and we will have a few more surprises for you later on today.  I'll be hanging out on the forums for about an hour, and will check in there before I crash for the night.

Time to relax for now though. The weather has been crazy today and it's looking very sinister outside! In fact the wind's blowing so hard a there's a scraping on the window.


Oh he think's he's done for the night? We'll see about that.


Friday, April 1, 2011

Mr. Ficus....

More Weapons

6am: Another level of True Mortal's weapons... I think I can get away with this...Have you ever seen a plant angry?  Like, really angry?  Well, give that plant a tog.  The sight's not pretty.
