Starting off the New Year with the Unluckiest Day!
Prepare yourself for the most EXPLOSIVE Friday the 13th event yet! ...mostly because there’s a gigantic Mecha-sized Mechanical Girl wreaking havoc on a kingdom on the edge of an erupting volcano that’s being trodden on by a galloping black unicorn ridden by Friday the 13th connoisseur Voltaire who is drinking from a glorious chalice filled with the laughter of small children AAAANND you and your closest 30,000 friends are invited!
Flaming unicorns, exploding volcanoes, event rare items, fire elementals, and mechanical misses are just some of the hot elements erupting into the 1st Friday the 13th event of the year...
Featuring Special Musical Guests
and his psychotic evil teddy bear "friend", Deady!
To our gaming community, Voltaire has become a greater iconic figure of Friday the 13th than the hockey mask-wearing Jason. He even has his own card in our card game! He is returning to AQWorlds for this Friday the 13th event, featuring three of his songs from his new album, including "Riding a Black Unicorn Down the Side of an Erupting Volcano While Drinking from a Chalice Filled with the Laughter of Small Children".
Voltaire says he wrote this song after he asked his fans on Facebook how to describe his music. One person responded, "Your music is like Riding a Black Unicorn Down the Side of an Erupting Volcano While Drinking from a Chalice Filled with the Laughter of Small Children!" Voltaire had one of those "YES!!!!!!" moments... and named his new album and hit song after it.
The songs used in our event were carefully selected to be appropriate for all audiences. However, most of Voltaire's music and videos are intended for mature audiences. If you are under the age of 13, please get your parents permission to use the links below.
Voltaire was not the only person to create a Unicorn-themed song based on recommendations from his fans. In fact, the artist who made the song in the video below has the EXACT same story. And since two songs about unicorns are better than one, rising internet superstar Andrew Huang arrives on the scene as the Unicorn Crooner along with his hit song... woah, wait a second. Is this a typo? "Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing On Rainbows! "

Real world things! O_O
We knew the new CD existed... but a real life unicorn medal!?
On behalf of the entire AQWorlds team, we want to thank Voltaire for being a part of this special event! He has generously spent his time, energy, and a good sum of expensive studio recording time making this and many of our other events available for all players to enjoy. So... we are going to plug these things we found on his website here like CRAZY! You can show your love back to our favorite tongue-in-cheek gypsie/pirate/goth musician by buying music or swag the official Voltaire’s Website.
