Heya! It’s Aeon again—back with some more design notes regarding this week’s quest.
- The ending of the last quest (The Burning Village) was originally part of this script, but I moved it back so you’d know about the enemy sooner, not later.
- “Return to Lymcrest” takes place several weeks after “The Burning Village.” This quest happens right after that.
- The little critter cameo is a callback to the early days of DF. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, see “Olaf’s Party” in Book 1 Dragesvard. The style of humor in that quest is really one of DF’s hallmarks.
- The first thing the Hero teaches Falwynn in this quest: what number lesson do they start with?
- Of all the quests in this arc, this was my favorite one to write. The atmosphere is silly and the dialogue flows smoothly—it’s just a cute quest overall.
And since this week focuses on Falwynn, here’s some trivia about her:
- Her birthday is April 7th (based on our calendar, not the in-game one!).
- Her favorite color is ultraviolet, a color she can’t even see. Her next favorite is green.
- She was based on Linkle, a character from The Legend of Zelda series.
That’s all for this week! Again, thanks for reading—and see you next time!
Head over to Book 3 Falconreach and talk to Ash to continue the Six Heroes Saga!

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!

This week is the first quest in Aeon's new questline: Six Heroes.
Lim's looking for some missing shipments of metals from Lymcrest, and it's up to the hero to find out what's happened.
Time to revisit Lymcrest. It can't have changed that much, right?
Head to Ash in Book 3 and look for a NEW quest button!

You've heard the tales from Tinsel and Holly, and they were almost unbelievable!
Chilly the evil necromancer, Chilly the gallant paladin! It's quite hard to imagine Chilly as either of those, really.
Now it's time to learn the truth... straight from Chilly himself!
Also, the presents will open tomorrow, on the last day of December. Make sure to check back before the Frostval book goes away in order to unwrap your Frostval gifts!
Happy holidays, and have a great new year!

Happy Friday, everyone!
After last week's challenging bouts, it's time for you to face off against the mighty Fangblade! You need that audience with King Alteon, but can you even stand a chance against Fangblade?
Fangblade has brushed aside Falwynn and has his eyes set on victory. How will you fare in Part 2 of the Swordhaven Tournament of Champions?
