A new week is here and it's time to roll up our sleeves and get started with the bug smashing! We're going to start right at the beginning and focus on Oaklore this week, getting bugs and errors fixed up. Feel free to join on and help with the smashing!
May I also present a preview of the 2011 Dragon*Con pet! Tomix is working hard on wrangling this fiery little DragonPony as we speak and it will go to all of those fans who visited us at Dragon*Con. Thank you for coming out and supporting us!
DragonPonies and Fire and Ponies and More Fire!

Updates! Finally got internets (lovely, unstable Con internets....)! This is the first I've been able to get online since Wednesday night, so getting to work on the release right now and I'll try and have it out to you guys as soon as I can.
After that I'll get to work on a special DNs about the panel. It went really well and I took lots o' pics (still trying to get my phone and Twitter to actually sync up and work...)! There was no internet there but we did, supposedly, have video being taken. So you'll all get the chance to see me stumble through the DragonFable portion of the panel and make fun of me and my terrible, terrible puns.
For now, to work!
Update: Quest is now live! Go to Stoneheart Fall to check out New Horizon from True Mortal, Eric Greydawn and Tomix! (You are a ninja in the cutscene for this weekend though!)

Lim has a kitty! And WE have a release for you!
So, it's Wednesday. We don't usually release on Wednesday, but since most of the people in the Secret Underground Lab are going to be at Dragon*Con on Friday, Geopetal said "Hey, Alina. Why not release on Wednesday, and then you won't have to worry?" Geopetal rocks!
So today we have a brand new Clashening quest for you, returning after a Summer-long hiatus! Lim wants to show you his latest experiment, and it stars his favoritest kitty ever, Mr. Poofles! His theory is that if you put a cat in a box, it's impossible to tell if it's in THIS dimension or an alternate one. Makes sense, right? Of course it does. It's SCIENCE! There's just ooooooone little problem: Mr. Poofles doesn't FEEL like being a volunteer, and if you've ever tried to make a cat do something it didn't want to do, you know exactly what is going to happen.
YOU have to track him down; follow the cat-prints through Falconreach and hope you find him before Cysero does! Because Cysero is in the mood to do magic, and you know what THAT'S like, right? (Pssst, remember the Guardian Tower getting turned into a fish? Yeah, we don't want a repeat of that, now do we?)
Four different levels of Mr.Poofles will drop as rewards from the quest, so if you sold or never got your Mr. Mangles pet, here's your chance to get another cutetastical cat for a companion!
Remember, Dragon*Con starts on Friday (and runs through Monday)! If you're in or near the Atlanta area, why not stop on by and say hi? We'd love to meet you, and we'll have plenty of Sharpies on hand to sign shirts, socks, hats, foreheads... whatever you have handy! We'll also be selling some of our swag at our panel:
- "The NPCs Critical Hits" CD
- Upgrade Cards (4,000 BattleOn Points)
- MechQuest Artbook (which you can have signed by our friendly team members for a few extra bucks)
- ChickenCow T-shirts (puchase includes the Chickencow Pet in both DF and AQW!)
And remember, if you come up to us at ANY point throughout the convention and say hi, you can ask for a free non-member pet in AQWorlds!
Here's the official stats for our panel and party (remember, we recommend Dragon*Con for players 15+, but if your parents are alright with it, come on over and have fun!):
AE/AQW Panel (3 hours of gaming madness)
When: Saturday, Sept 4th, 2010
Where: The Sheraton Hotel - The Savannah Room
Time: 1pm to 3:30pm... unless we fall asleep
When: Saturday: Sept 4th, 2010
Where: The Sheraton Hotel - The Capitol Ballroom
Time: 10pm to 3:30am (Although... we will probably grab everyone and flee to Voltaire's concert which is scheduled that same night.)
We hope to see you there! I've got a bit more work to do, then I've got to run home and make sure I'm all packed. Kata is staying at a boarders, and I miss her already! But she will get to play with Rolith's kitties, so she won't be TOO lonely!
Enjoy the quest, and we'll have more to release for you this Friday!

And I feel fine!
No, no, just kidding. That describes the end of the LAST Nythera Saga! This one won't destroy anything. We hope. It all depends on you, and if you can help Nythera achieve her ultimate goal: reuniting the Creatioux and Decadere! Can you tame the Decadere? Will they bow before Nythera's might? (Not to mention her AWESOME fashion sense. Who doesn't love a good pair of purple feathery shoulder-things?) You'll see this week in the Nythera Saga: Rise of the DragonMage finale!
Ghost is working doubletime on the Nythera cutscene AND the project I'm going to tell you about in 2 or 3 sentences. The Nythera quest will drop some REALLY nifty Void weapons that Lim made this past weekend.*
Ok, maybe it was less than three sentences. But onwards and upwards (or outwards and downwards, if you prefer those directions instead), because as I type, the construction of a brand new town is taking place! Those poor construction moglins have assembled another unit in... Willowshire! You'll finally get to find out what happened to the Falconreach stable! No, we did not leave the stable door open for the horses to escape. It's MUCH more fun than that! /widegrin
As always, we are working ahead to prepare for future releases. And speaking of future releases, with the end of the Nythera Saga this week, you'll see the return of the Clashening and Ravenloss in the next couple of weeks!
Also, half of the DragonFable team is heading to Dragon*Con next week for crowd-filled fun (and crowd-borne germs. I REALLY hope no one gets the Con plague this year!). We'll be having a panel on Saturday (on the MMO track) and a party hosted by Artix Entertainment on Saturday night. If you're in the Atlanta area, we'd LOVE to meet you! So stop on by and chat. We'll be selling merch and, as usual, giving away free stuff! (Like the non-member pets in AQWorlds. What will it be? Possibly a derp-dragon, maybe sorta?!)
Big SALE news!
And finally, we have some very exciting news! For the week of August 22nd (that's RIGHT NOW!), our AE game cards will be 15% off in Target stores! That means they'll be $16.95 instead of $19.95. Now, I'm not a numbers person (seriously, I took Math for Liberal Arts majors in college. We did word problems all semester...), but that looks like savings for you to me! You can also find our ad in the Target circular (the pages of coupons Target sends out).
