Hello players! Today, I’m writing the hardest Design Notes (or really of anything) I’ve had to in my past nine years with AE. I’m writing to say goodbye. It is my last day as the Game Director for DragonFable and my last day at Artix Entertainment. I’ve received a new job offer where I’ll be working to help create game dev education and certification programs.
My time at AE has been amazing and I’ve been able to work with a huge group of intensely talented and creative individuals. The DF team and the players have always inspired me and, as I move forward on my career path and back into the ranks of player and superfan of DragonFable, I know that Tomix and Verlyrus, as the new co-leads, will continue on working together with Melissa4Bella, San Robin, Karika, GIngkage, Elryn, Eric, and all the AKs and players, and make even more incredible stories for everyone to play through! I will also, admittedly, be abusing my access to continue to bother Tomix and Verlyrus until they decide to bury the Stone Orb in the Willowshire Tower with Sir Valorus.... ;)
To everyone at Artix Entertainment, to all the DragonFable team members past and present, to all the players, thank you so much! You’ve all made my time here an experience to remember! <3

Old enemies will have to come to an uneasy peace if you're going to defeat the Darkness this time! Doom has come to Sho'Nuff and they'll need to find a way to work together to defeat the monsters risen by Caitiff's Doom Dragon!

Note: Works in progress and still subject to change!

Caitiff has been studying the hero. Trying to learn why fate seems to be on their side.
Now, Caitiff has a Doom Amulet and is ready to make its move....
After ten years, is Lore finally Doomed?

The release will be coming out tomorrow everyone! This month is full of bigger releases so we need a little more time to get this one fully cooking for you. (Tomix also is claiming he needed this thing called sleep.)
Anniversary Dragon Scythes
I've added the fourth elemental Dragon Scythe into the Celebration Shop, with more to come!

It has officially been ten years since the baby dragons first hatched and I, and the DragonFable team, want to say thank you to all the heroes who have quested, fought, and adventured with us. Whether you discovered the game this week, or were with us ten years ago, thank you so much for playing and supporting the game! You all absolutely rock!
The best memories are those where we became part of the game; where the cause for our heroes became our own. A lot of mine are of being on the DF forums and pressing F5 late on Friday nights and during the weekend. Watching the reaction to the JohnnyFish, or the April Fools where we did a new release every hour, or trying to make fixes to the Frostval Plushie War (which still holds the waves per minute record) while I was in Michigan and Alina and Rolith were in Chicago (and Rolith had to make fixes set up in a bathroom because it was the only room with three prong wall socket), getting sushi with oishii and designing the new Aria, Caitiff, and Aquella, or planning through storylines with Tomix and Ghost and having them bring a few sentences to life, reading through crazy San Robin stories, fixing bugs with Niki and Verly and Ash, talking about the forums with Melissa4Bella, Circe, Landis and Eukara, and all the AKs… and making the Lore’s long run on sentence.

The library is finally open! Head to Southern Falconreach to explore the new interior and talk with the diminutive new Loremaster that's curating the collection.
Right now, there are only three books available; a record of Dyana's Diary, the Mark of the Loremaster, and the Wind Orb: Shadow of the Wind. More are coming but, as we discovered today, books do not always like to cooperate.
There's also lots of amazing art to check out on the walls and a museum wing that needs some exhibits! What do you guys want to see on display? War monuments? Statues? Portals to the past like the war memorial outside? Let us know on the forums!
Note: The "A New Dimension!" quest is moving into the Celebration Shops section of your Book of Lore but I think the Archive would be a great place for a permanent spot for it!

It's Friday the 13th... who's the unlucky one this time?
