Edgar Allan Bro
2014 Mogloween Event Spoilers
We are almost 1 week away… Mogloween is next Friday the 31st! And I know you’ve just been dying to sneak-a-peek at the tricks-and-treats in store for you and millions of your friends in the best browser RPG, AdventureQuest Worlds. So… let’s get spoiled with some spoilers!
The famous Gypsy Pirate Goth Musician, Voltaire, returns to Lore to narrate the 2014 Mogloween Event, fully inspired by Edgar Allan Poe! And don’t just read through… play through 3 of Poe’s spookiest stories in epic online adventures!
Spoiler Alert 1: The Fall of the House of Crusher
Relive the classic tale of mystery and the macabre in a brand-new zone inspired by Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher. Here you will meet Roderick Crusher and his sickly sister Madeline, who suffers from catalepsy (an illness that makes her appear dead). Quest through the haunted House of Crusher as you attempt to save Madeline’s life before it’s too late!
Spoiler Alert 2: The Cask of Amoglinado
Poe’s twisted tale of terror, The Cask of Amontillado, comes to life in browser based glory. Your friend, Montresor, believes he found a rare cask of Moglin Berry Juice: the Amoglinado. And you, my friend, just so happen to be a Moglin Berry Juice connoisseur! Quest with Montresor into the city’s vaults until you reach the very end where the Amoglinado is fabled to reside.
Spoiler Alert 3: The Wyvern
Undisputedly the most notable poem by Poe, The Raven inspired lyrical twists to the AQW-themed version entitled: The Wyvern. As not to give away too much, I’ll leave you with the opening stanza:
Once upon a night so eerie, while I wandered, weak and weary,
From slaying many a monster in the lands of Lore,
As I quested, Achievement Tracking,
Suddenly there came a whacking,
As if some beast was attacking, attacking with a ridiculous roar.
“’Tis some wild boar,” I mumbled, “whacking with a ridiculous roar.
Only this—a level 1 boar.”
DO YOU FEEL THOSE GOOSEBUMPS?! You should—I get the chills just reading that! And next Friday, October 31st, 2014, every hero and every villain in this 2D MMO will get to experience Edgar Allan Poe like never before!
Stay tuned to the Design Notes and the AQW Facebook for more spoilers!
Learn more about the Vampire Factions
The scrolls of the Vampire Elders seeking to claim the Vampire Throne have been revealed! Learn of each factions' philosophy, what drives its leader, and what each seeks in new recruits. Tomorrow, you will find them in the /eternalnight map. But tonight, you can read them below:
The Umbral Legion
Led by Rapaxi, Elder
Out of the shadows we came, and to the shadows we return. It is there that the Umbral Legion draws its strength. There our power is shaped and grows. We ARE the Children of the Shadows. Warriors of the Shade. From the earliest times, the other Vampires have sought to match our skill as warriors… and failed.
The legends of my people? PAH. That is the way of weakness. Softness. We do not place much store on stories and legends; through embracing silence, one cannot betray their Clan's strategy. That is the way of OUR dark path: in the heat of the battle, we forge the blades of a new Vampire Nation.
The Abyssal Horde
Led by Kurok Gravefang, Leader
*GRRRROWL* You wish to know where the Abyssal Horde comes from? ME! They are mine. Bone, body, and blood. They see my strength, hear my plans, and smell victory. I do not HAVE a history… I will MAKE a history.
No one sees the power that dwells inside the outcasts, the lost, the hated. THEY are the Abyssal Horde. They know that beauty can hide a dark heart, and that claims of skill can be false promises. I make no claims to a pure bloodline or power over mortals or skill in battle. I SHOW my bloodline and my power and my skill… and so does my Horde.
YOU do not join US. WE come to YOU.
The Cor Mortis
Led by Lady Solani, the First Fang
When the Ancient Gods still walked Lore, the legends say, war raged even fiercer than it does now. The very elements struggled for control. And in that chaos, one a new race rose. Vampires. Over the millennia, we grew stronger, and our scattered peoples formed families, and clans.
The Cor Mortis is one such, an ancient Clan, formed from the shadows cast by our earliest ancestors. We are the rulers, the shapers of tradition and definers of history. Those who battle alongside us, rise. Those who oppose us, learn to serve. And someday, should their strength and courage prove them worthy, they join… US.
From my earliest memories, once I was reborn, I learned the ways of my Clan: How to recognize power. How to rule. When to choose mercy, and when to demand obedience. How to let our people choose for themselves while still remaining ONE people following the TRUE path.
The Nyx Aeterna
Led by Baron Luca, Clan Head
The Nyx Aeterna were ancient when the first cities rose up. We watched as the mortals we stalked learned how to harness their own strength and intellect to make their world a better place. We watched, and we poached. We are the hunters, the predators, the monsters your mother used to frighten you as a babe.
Those fierce enough, brave enough, to unleash the Beast within themselves master fear... and hone its edge into a weapon. It is not enough to be STRONG. It is not enough to be SKILLED. It is not enough to be FEARED. The Nyx Aeterna seek those who will LAST. Who will STAY. We are as old as the night. As deep and dark as the shadows that shroud its heart. Those who cannot join us, heart and body and soul... will never truly belong.
Prepare for Battle in the Blood & Blades Finale happening this Friday, October 24th!

Battle for the Darkovian Vampire Throne
The time has come to choose a successor for Queen Safiria, ruler of Darkovia's vampires.* After this summer's war, a different type of chaos reigns among the vampires of Lore, and the lycans of Darkovia are starting to probe for weaknesses.
Of the surviving Vampire Elders, several have come forth to claim the throne… as well as a half-breed new-comer who has no right, but strength, speed, skill, and POWER! This Friday, fight for the Vampire YOU want to take the Vampire Throne; your support will make the difference between ruling… and being banished back to the shadows of obscurity.
* It is best when rulers can choose a successor before they must leave the throne. For those of you who have not finished the Chaos Saga finale, spoilers will be kept to a minimum.
Vote with your blades
You have 4 contenders to choose from:
- Baron Luca, Head of the Nyx Aeterna Clan
- Rapaxi, Elder of the Umbral Legion
- Kurok Gravefang, Leader of the Abyssal Horde
- Lady Solani, First Fang of the Cor Mortis** and her General, Ensis
One of these four has... plans... for Edvard and Esmee. Regrettably, I am not sure they'll last out the week in Darkovia.
This week's release will not be a regular war, where you see a war meter increase as you defeat opponents. Instead, you will:
- Journey to the Vampire War battlegrounds and speak with the four contenders for the throne.
- Choose who you wish to ally with, then head into battle against their biggest threat.
- Defeat their enemies to "vote" for your choice***
- Next Thursday, October 21st, we will tally up the first round of votes, then...
- You will be able to choose which of the two remaining contenders you want to battle for.
- On Friday, October 24th, we will announce the NEW ruler of Darkovia, as chosen by Lore's heroes in a final BLOODBATH!!!
** A relative of the much-loved Queen Safiria
*** The "Vote" items will be 0 AC and stack up to 10,000.
I am still deciphering the history scrolls the Vampire Elders brought with them, so more of each clan's story will arrive soon!
