Contest Rules (follow these EXACTLY, or your entry WILL BE disqualified!)

This is the most important part of the whole contest. Read all the rules below BEFORE entering your DRAGONS Fan Art submission.

Follow EACH rule if you want your entry to be considered eligible.

1.     Create AdventureQuest DRAGONS Fan Art! You can Draw, Paint, Flash, Photoshop, 3D Print, Sculpt, Bake/Decorate, Comic-strip, Cosplay, or create a Stuffed Animal/Plushie of anything relating to AQ DRAGONS. Get creative here, folks!

IMPORTANT: Do NOT submit random drawings of random dragons. This contest is ONLY wanting fan art of the Dragons found within the mobile game, AdventureQuest DRAGONS.   

2.     Your AQ DRAGONS Fan Art MUST BE created by YOU. And only YOU. No teaming up with friends, sorry.

3.     DO NOT trace or steal ANY artwork! If your fan art is stolen from any Artix game, or traced over preexisting DRAGONS art work, or directly copied from another dragon-related photo online, YOU WILL BE disqualified.

4.     Your AQ DRAGONS Fan Art entry MUST include your AQW Character Name somewhere on the picture. No name = no chance at winning, and the possibility of someone else stealing your hard work. Please write/sign your AQW Character Name legibly so we can actually read it =) Also: DO NOT CHANGE your AQW Character name during the contest and contest judging! 

5.     Put the date on your entry so no one tries to steal your Fan Art during future contests (because you know some sneaky scoundrel will try)!

6.     Type your AQWorlds Character Name in your Tweet BEFORE submitting. That way, if you win, I can easily copy your Character Name for faster prize awarding and no mistakes.

7.     Include hashtag #DRAGONS in your Tweet so that way the whole world can see your awesome art, too!

The Span's First Chaos Beast

Learn from Iadoa before he's fully Chaorrupted!

Take on the ultimate enemy this week in The Span! As Iadoa struggles to battle the Chaorruption infecting him, YOU need to battle the zone's first Chaos Beast! Will he be able to hold on long enough to teach you what you need to know in order to defeat Chaos?

Battle through a reconstruction of the AdventureQuest timeline. Take on a vicious fire dragon, study in the Temple of Hope, and defeat the ultimate Chaos-construct: Carnax, the zone's first Chaos Beast! Of all the creatures and golems he's created so far, Carnax is Iadoa's most EPIC one yet!


Ultra-Carnax drops the Reign Gatekeeper Armor!

After playing through the release, members can access the Member-only Ultra Carnax Challenge Fight! You'll need a whole party, because his knockout LAZAR-punch can hit for 8,000 damage! But that damage is divided by the number of people in your /party! Victory comes with character and Book of Lore badges!

AQW Action Figures!?

Because Paladins cannot keep secrets

I posted this to my friends on Facebook and Twitter... but, um, it did not remain very secret. So we wanted to let you all in on it the news. We have officially begun work on AdventureQuest Worlds action figures. They are planned for release during the 10th year anniversary of the original AdventureQuest this October. What you are seeing below is a behind the scenes look at how an actionfigure is sculpted from wax. The sculptor is going to widen the chest and then make the arms. I guess... currently.... some monster has "dis-armed" him. This one should be finished in a few days and then work on Sepulchure will begin! (Shhhh.... keep it sorta secret ok?)

Chaos Lord Kimberly is signing her Card for fans

We were just sent a video from Kimberly, lead singer of the band One-eyed Doll (and also surprise-twist AQWorlds Chaos Lord). She took a silly video of herself going into Toys-R-Us and buying our card game! You can get the link to the video on the official the "AQworlds Battle On Battle Card Game" webpage She also has instructoins on how to mail her the card with a stamped, self addressed envelope -- she will sign your "...While rocking out" card and send it back to you.

DoomWood this Friday!

It has been a while since I wrote a zone.... and as everyone predicted I got super carried away with all of the things I wanted to see in this first part of the DoomWood saga. We are in super crunch mode, racing to create as much of it as possible before the release. We are making some very interesting types of quests and some very story heavy cutscenes. I really like that Alina is helping write AQWorlds now -- she is bringing the deep, rich story telling style of DragonFable into our MMO. Nulgath is here at the lab working on the characters, J6 is almost done with the new backgrounds, Cysero is working on the cutscenes, Samba is animating monsters, and Beleen is... at college. Getting smart. Funny story... one of the most impressive brand new characters in DoomWood has A LOT of skulls on his armor. I jokingly told Nulgath that he needed more skulls. Nulgath said.. really? I said, still joking. YES! I just found out that for the past several hours he has been adding several hundred additional skulls to the characters armor O_O. For lag reasons... we might ease back on the skulls... but we will post the full skull version to go for the WORLD RECORD OF ARMOR SKULLS!
