If there's one thing we love here at the Secret Underground Lab it's weaponry to defend ourselves against undead invasions! Which is why I want to give huge props to Platinum and his friend, who made us a real life version of the Necrotic Blade of Doom!

It's October 1st and Mogloween has officially begun! This year we're going to delve into the mysterious zard invasion that started on Friday the 13th... are you ready for a very infectious Mogloween?
The previous Mogloween's are all available for play through now too! Remember though, that Chapters 1-4 need to be completed in order. So, you'll have to go through and get all the masks before you can move on to the next chapter. (Chapter 5 is available for play now though!)
As you can see from the Chapter 5 Mogloween town all the Resident Sneevil quests are already planned out! You may notice the mysterious naming of the final quest though.... :O! You'll have to wait until the final week (/cough, October 29th!) to find the name of the final, epic quest for Resident Sneevil!
If you were around for August's Friday the 13th war, you may remember it as a huge, frenetic event. The DragonFable forums were insanely busy and the war threads moved fast and furious! All of us on the DF team were very happy to see how much you guys were enjoying that war and to see how you all came together to beat back the 5 MILLION waves of savage zards!
As a special thank you I've asked eight of your forum friends if they would to appear in small walk-on roles for Resident Sneevil! So everyone give a huge congratulations to Eric Ravenwing, Lady Ravenwing, Dornalca, pokewanderer, ChainSword, LFAL, chisagen and Prius! I chose these eight because they were such positive, driving forces in the Friday the 13th war threads making fun, informative (even several rather poetic) posts. So, keep an eye out for these guys the rest of the month. Who knows what crazy situations Ghost will put them into! ;o

So you guys pretty much shattered all expectations this weekend and hit 50% in the war Monday afternoon (beating Rolith in his coding frenzy to finish the zard cuisine, something that we were tossing around on Friday as a cool idea for fun battle buffs)! Since you guys took to my *cough* unofficial challenge Saturday, I'm now going to put forth....
The Official 100% Zard Frenzy Challenge!
Reading through the war threads on the forums, it's become clear that you guys want a zard pet. So Ghost is going to take some time out of his busy schedule of making amazing things to make one (maaaaybe two) more amazing thing(s)... a Rush of Zardlings!
Why, yes, I did spend way too much time animating this random cutscene.
IF you can get the war meter to 100% before the release on Friday, then the Rush of Zardlings will be added to the loot table of the boss monster in addition to the other war goodies. If you guys don't make it, then those poor little zardlings will have to be content to play in whatever giant, empty box Ghost is going to trap them in until the next war.
Good luck all and BattleOn!

You guys are amazing! 25% by Saturday night! You guys are decimating all those zards!
I'm hoping that we're giving Rolith enough time to finish. We don't want Rolith to exact revenge for this next Codemonkey Day....
I honestly think at this point that you guys might beat Rolith to 50%! If you get to 50% before Monday afternoon, he's not going to have to get the 50% DragonLord addition ready... and he'd definately be very grumpy if I issued any sort of challenge for you guys to race Rolith to 50%.... 0;)
So, the 50% DragonLord prize is going to have to be adjusted to either 50% or when Rolith finishes programming it, whichever is later!
Keep up the good work though! I'm very proud of all you guys and how hard you all are fighting. I can't wait until you guys get to see the 100% cutscene. Based on everything I've managed to read (ya'll are on the 4th war thread already!*) the final cutscene is going to surprise all of you. :D
Also, great poems Dornalca!
The Zard still come in numbers great and still we hold them back,
And though they are so many we will throw back the attack!
The town of Moonridge needs us to save them from this horde,
So we will smite these enemies down, with dagger, spell or sword!!
I'm back and eager to win!
*Speaking of which, add discussion of this to the current war thread please, to keep it all together for the brave AK's!

37%! You guys rock! (I am officially licensed to say that as a rock myself.) It's great to see how active the war threads* are with all of you coming together and cheering each other on! War poems, song suggestions and personal wave tallies abound!
Midday, and our heroes bombarded,
We must fight back before we are Zarded,
We must not leave with our hopes discarded,
So fight for your lives, as the clouds have parted...
The light shines on you...
You heroes are the last hope...
I really think you guys are going to beat Rolith to 50% too! :s So please make sure to keep that in mind, Rolith is going to need time to get the special DragonLord goodie coded!

Friday the 13th Has Arrived!
You can feel their eyes... watching... waiting.... Their snarls echo through the edges of Doomwood.... The Zards have arrived!
Zards are an unusual reptilian creature that have long inhabited the southern reaches of Lore, but they have never been encountered this far north. These zards, though... well, these zards are angry! Where you felt just a single pair of eyes before, heard just one creature skittering away, now yellow eyes seem to peer from any dark space. Where did they all come from? Who is responsible?
Luckily (well... maybe not so luckily for him), the famed Zardhunter, Irwin Dundee, has come north to study the wildlife indigenous to Doomwood. Surely he can help fight back this enormous outbreak of zards? Even Falconreach is lending a hand with the Nytroglycerine Sponge Catapult.
