The Latest Sulen'eska Quest is live! Travel the Swordhaven Path and pass inspection to get to the notorious Runed Fortress! (Note: You might have to redo Mission:Improbable to get the next quest to open! We had to make an adjustment to the quest string.)
This is the story of a cat and a box, and their quest to find a planner.
This morning, I woke up and thought to myself, "You know what you need? A planner to keep track of everything so you aren't caught by surprise when something needs to be done the next day!"
"Good idea," I told myself.
Naturally, I strolled over to the nearest bookstore and demanded to see their finest planner.
"We don't have any in stock," I was told.
"You see, it's that time of year when the yearly ones have sold out, but the 18 month ones haven't arrived yet. Try coming back in a month."
A month! Who knows what I'll have forgotten to do by then?
Being the resourceful boxcat that I am, I immediately returned to my box and converted it into a time machine. (All it takes is a marker and some imagination!)
I promptly set off for 1 month in the future in order to secure a precious planner.
Unfortunately, I must not have set the box flaps correctly, because I ended up in some sort of orangey swirly place. The blue carpet was nice and cushy though.
And then I saw them.
ChronoZ wearing heroes! A guy and a girl, looking as ChronoZ as can be!
They were arguing about something, but I was too far away to hear, so I scooted closer.
"blahblahblah...blah... new skills.. blah blah..."
It was suddenly clear to me! My time travelling escapade had cost these ChronoZ heroes their new skills since I wasn't around to code them! Abandoning my quest for a planner, I turned back the flaps on my box and sailed back to present time.
Plannerless, I got down to work.
The ChronoZ armor has recieved an update!
Better flavor text (fewer calories, more flavor!), tweaked numbers, squashed bugs, and 3 awesome new skills await! Other than some fine tuning of numbers and some bugs that have escaped me, this should be the general feel of the final armor.
Blink forward: Attack twice in a row after using this skill. May interact oddly with potions. (I suggest this + Bow + Bow for a quick multi. But I'm sure you'll find other crazy ways to use it! Drinking potions does not count toward the two turns.)
Reverse Time: Instantly heal half of your health and mana!
Kick: Stops your opponent from fleeing. But using the power of time.
Let me know on the forums if you end up breaking anything!
So, there's a funny thing about time travelers. USUALLY they arrive where and when they want to be pretty close to their target. But THIS time... We'd wanted the ChronoZ to arrive 3 months BEFORE the New Year. Looks like this guy got reversed, and is approaching 3 months AFTER!
But never fear... the time IS almost here! This week, Verlyrus is taking Tomix's AMAZING art and animation for the ChronoZ Class and working on the its skills, breaking everything and putting it back together.
If you want to help, you can leave ideas and feedback (and any bugs you find) in the forum thread here! Keep an eye on the Design Notes, because as soon as WE know it's ready to go live, YOU will, too!
Wait, wait, wait! What IS the ChronoZ Class?
It's about time you asked! You can get your very own ChronoZ Class when you pick up the 2014 Calendar from HeroMart, our online real-life swag store!
I'm here today to tell a story and talk about some of the awesome plans we've got in store for DragonFable.
Last Sunday, I put some stamps on my box and was shipped to the Secret Underground Lab. After snoozing through my uneventful trip, Rolith and I chased each other around the delivery area (Maybe it was hard to find me 'cause I was under my box?), and he took me home, where I met Alina!
The next day, I made my way to the lab and got straight to work. Boxcats are notoriously hard workers.
Seriously. I didn't even take a full tour of the lab until my last day there!
But despite being boxed, I did end up meeting everyone, and they were as fantastic as I imagined. Meeting and hanging out with everybody was so much fun!
As the week came to a close, it sadly came time for me to leave. I slapped some more stamps on my box, and Rolith and Alina took me to the post office to ship me off.
And now I'm back in my boxcat lair, typing up these design notes!
Now for the big question: What did I work on? What was so vitally important that the boxcat had to be shipped in?
Well, it's a secret! Rolith & I are working on something that's totally unique to DragonFable! It'll be coming out mid to late summer. I think it's definitely something that everyone will enjoy. I might drop some hints now and then, so stay tuned!
This week, I'm going to be working on the ChronoZ class, breaking everything and putting it back together. If you want to help, you can leave ideas and feedback (and any bugs you find) in the forum thread here!
I've also learned how to Twitter, although I think little birds should be used more for chasing and pouncing than for talking. You can follow me at twitter.com/VerlyrusAE.
PS: Sorry about the lack of real pictures! But it is the boxcat way to come and go, leaving no evidence! (also I forgot to take any, but shhhh!)
