Planning and doing and planning some more
Did you know there are only 13 days until Lucky Week? That does not seem right somehow, but that's the way the calendar tells it. If calendars could talk. Which they can't.
But yes, 13- THIRTEEN - days until Lucky Week! We've got a prodigious amount of planning to do before we can start implementing ANYTHING. We need a plot and a script (not the same things!) not to mention a design document which will tell the artists what prettypretty arts to art up and which will tell Rolith what codes to download from the inter-matrix.
And once the art, rewards, and code are done, it'll come time for assembly and, after that, testing. Lots and lots of testing, because we're planning on doing something just a little... different... this Lucky Week. In fact, it's SO different that it won't fit into a whole day.

The REAL Secret of the Thorn
It's Friday again and time to catch up on some Orb drama!
The Earth Orb and Valorus
Our last quest in the Earth Orb saga had us racing across the country side to provide a distraction for Valencia. Just exactly what did she hide and where?
This week, on your return to Willowshire, you find that the Dravir have pushed forward and they captured Lord Valorus, the original Captain of the Tower of Earth! Fight your way back into the upper reaches of the Tower and rescue Valorous and find out the real Secret of the Thorn! A brand new nature helm made by True Mortal will drop from the quest.
The Darkness Orb and Vayle
The time has come to return to Doomwood, the Darkness Orb, and the story of the luckless Vayle! When you last left her, she had had the most important thing in the world ripped away from her.
And she blames YOU! But all is not lost. While she is not quite a friend, she is also not quite an enemy. Even though you're not sure of your welcome with her, you'll still need to find her quickly because dark forces are moving to form an alliance with her.
If that happens, the end of the world will be nearer than it was yesterday. And you don't want that! So talk to Tomix to see if he'll come along with you and assist you in swaying Vayle to your side.
If you can't, there will be dire consequences! A Darkness helm, cape, and wings will drop from the quest as rewards!
By player request (/waves at Mordred) a new helm has been added to the Mysterous Stranger's Doom Helm Shop! There are now level 40, 50 and 60 versions of the Pheonix Doom!
If you're feeling nostalgic, swing by the Shadow of the Wind Village, Osprey Cove or the Sandsea. Ghost has created new music to experience as you revisit the classic quests!
