  • All entries must be submitted to @AQWcontest Twitter page before 11:59pm EST/server time on 4/06/14 

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 Battle Gems Fan Art submission. Because if you don’t follow the rules, then you’ll be disqualified, and that is oh-so totally lame.

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

  1. Create Battle Gems-themed 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 Battle Gems. Get creative here, folks!
  2. Your Battle Gems Fan Art MUST BE created by YOU. And only YOU. No tracing, and no teaming up with friends, sorry. You CAN use in-game art, but get creative with it (don't just copy-paste the image, we know what our art looks like... since we created it lol!)
  3. Your 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 I can actually read it =)
  4. Also, put the date your entry so no one tries to steal your Fan Art during future contests (because you know some sneaky scoundrel will try)!
  5. 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.
  6. After following ALL THE RULES above, submit your awesome Battle Gems Fan Art entry to www.twitter.com/AQWcontest

Handy Dandy Checklist

Check off each thing below before submitting your entry to ensure your chance at winning!

  • Battle Gems Fan Art created by you
  • AQW Character Name *neatly* written on your picture
  • The date on your entry
  • Type your AQW Character name in your Tweet to @AQWcontest
  • Upload your Battle Gems Fan Art picture to your Tweet to @AQWcontest
  • Hit the Tweet button and submit your entry!

How to tweet in Battle Gems Fan Art Contest

From Moglin muffins to Book of Lore brownies to NPC character cupcakes to ginger bread Guardian Towers to Cysero cakes and—OMG there are just waaaay too many to list! So feast your eyes on previous years’ winners and get a sugar-rush inspiration =D

How the Cookie Crumbles (The Rules)

This contest will range from NOW until 11:59pm Server Time (also EST) on Tuesday, December 31st. The winners will be announced next year.

Artix Creative Cookie Contest collage

The rules and guidelines are short ‘n sweet but MUST be followed exactly for your edible entry to be eligible. I repeat, in boldface and in red font, ‘cuz a lot of people miss this: YOU must follow EACH rule if you want your entry to be considered eligible.   

The easiest way to make sure your hard work gets judged: Read all of the rules before submitting your entry! Simple, yeah? Let’s get started!

• Your dessert MUST be created by YOU. Do not copy someone else’s hard work. That, my friend, is called cheating, and you will be disqualified for it.

• Include an index card/piece of paper/ icing signature that says your AQW Character Name AND 2013 alongside your tasty treat. This way we really know it’s made by you! And NO, photoshopping your name onto your picture DOES NOT COUNT, and you will be disqualified if you do.  

• Your dessert MUST be created in some sort of Artix Entertainment theme.
Create anything you want from AQW, EpicDuel, OverSoul, BladeHaven, DragonFable, BattleGems, MechQuest, AdventureQuest, Pony vs Pony, HeroSmash, or WarpForce! If we cannot tell what it is from our games, you will not be qualified.

• Your canvas must be an edible holiday dessert, like a cookie, cake, pie, brownie, ice cream, cupcake, or pastry.
Mmmm, get creative!

• The photo of your dessert should be of the Highest Quality.
The more clear the picture, the better and tastier it will look, upping your chance at winning the Grand Prize!

• Post your VALID link to your dessert photo on the AQWContest Twitter at www.twitter.com/AQWContest

Have Your Cake and Eat It Too (Enter the Contest!)

Now that you have read all the rules (as all smart cookies do), you’re ready to enter the 2013 Creative Cookie Contest!

Lucky 13 Contest Results

We are LUCKY to have you!

From March 13, 2013, until April 13, 2013, we ran the Lucky 13 Contest where we tried to get 1.3 Million New Players to join the ongoing adventures of AQWorlds.

Lucky 13 Contest

If successful, every hero would receive a flurry of Lucky 13 rewards, including a complete Lucky 13 Armor Set, a Lucky 13 Achievement Badge, 13% higher monster drop rates, and a 13% boost in AdventureCoins when upgrading.

The Contest Results are in!

WOW! Over 1,000,000 new AQWorlds accounts were created… but not enough to meet the 1.3 Million goal.

HOWEVER! Combining all new Artix Entertainment game accounts together DID exceed the 1.3 Million goal! Now that’s what Team Work is all about!

And here at Artix Entertainment, we praise and value Team Work. Because each and every one of you worked together SO HARD, we still want to award you and your friends with Lucky 13 Contest items!

Sometime later this week, a special shop will open in Battleon that will award:

  • Diamond Dueler Armor
  • Staff of Spades
  • Cape of Clover
  • Helm of the Heart
  • Member-Only Lucky Suit Bank Pet

All for FREE--and all 0 ACs so that you can keep them forever =D

Anyone with an active AQWorlds account can receive these items! And anyone who creates an AQW account within 2 weeks of the Lucky 13 shop opening can also obtain these items.

Stay tuned throughout the week for Lucky 13 Contest updates on the Design Notes!

What About the Other Rewards?

Since we did not reach the Lucky 13 Contest goal, we will not release the Lucky 13 Achievement Badge, the 13% higher monster drop rates, nor the 13% bonus AdventureCoins. But because you tried SO HARD and we were SO CLOSE at achieving our goals, we still want to award you with some free spiffy items =D

Now that’s LUCKY!

Thank you for trying your absolute best! We could NOT have gotten this far without your help! You are truly a hero =D

Looking for another contest challenge?

AdventureQuest Worlds’ 1 Million Facebook Likes contest is underway!

Like us!

If you and all your friends can help AQWorlds reach 1,000,000 Likes on Facebook, then you and everyone else who helps out will receive a free brand-new Class in AdventureQuest Worlds!

Sweet, right? RIGHT!

Gather everyone you know—friends, family, & followers—and tell them to like the AdventureQuest Worlds Facebook page to help us reach 1 Million Likes by July 7, 2013!

We can do it! Woohoo!

Dage Fan Art Contest Winners!

FINALLY! Your wait (and mine!) is over! The winners to the Dage the Evil Fan Art Contest have been announced. With over 850 entries, this was BY FAR the largest, most epic, and most EVIL contest to date! 

Dage Fan Art Contest

Grand Prize Winner

Holy Underworld! Check out the ABSOLUTLEY AMAZING work of Jultane_x! For your undying devotion to the Undead Legion, Dage the Evil has specially crafted a one-of-a-kind weapon for Jultane_x. Jultane_x, you totally earned the Jultane_X's Legion Blades—and all the bragging rights, too!


Runner Ups

There could only be one grand prize winner… but these epic entries are second best in Dage the Evil’s eyes! Dage has specifically crafted an exclusive Undead Legion Cape for the following Runner Ups: the Looming Legion Paragon! Wear it in pride and feast off the jealous souls! Mwahahahah!

Graphic Dage Design

Woah! These Undead Legion followers sure know how to use Photo Editing software! For their hard work and impressive graphic design, Dage wants to give you 1,000 AdventureCoins. Great job!

Have Your Cake and Eat It Too

Deliciously devious Dage desserts! These entries look good enough to eat… and there’s one you CAN! These entries take the cake and shall receive 600 AdventureCoins for cookin’ up their masterpiece.


Pencil is Mightier than the Caladbolg Sword

Give these artists a hand for their amazing drawings created by hand! It took a lot of skill and a LOT of patience to create these drawings… just like farming for Legion Tokens! You get 600 AdventureCoins for your handiwork!  


Sculpting Evil

WOWZA! Dage the Evil was blown away by your real-life 3D skillz. Please accept 600 AdventureCoins as a token of his appreciation for your crafting abilities! (And can I get those shoes in pink, please?)


For Shame: No Names

There were so many entries that DID NOT include their AQW Player Name! And not to mention… so many AWESOME ones that made it to the final round. But, in the contest rules, in huge font and bolded:

“7. Include your AQW character name on your submitted picture AND in your post so we know who to award the prizes to!”

Just like in school, if you don’t put your name on your paper, you can’t get credit for your hard work =( And it’s not fair to those who followed the contest rules and included their player name, you know?

If you DID have an amazing piece of art, but DID NOT include your AQW player name on your submission, check your Inventory Bag later today and see if there’s a Note from Dage the Evil. He might toss you some Undead Legion Tokens for your hard work. Maybe. If he can remember your name =p

You Rule!

Thank you to everyone who participated in this contest! We wish you all could have won—but then it wouldn’t be a contest! Keep up your amazing artistic endeavors and someday you too can be as skilled as Dage the Evil himself. Promise =D

And a super mega special THANK YOU to the volunteers for helping manage the Dage Contest with me =D

I couldn’t have done it without them, so if you see them in game, make sure to give them much love and /cheers!

Long live the Undead Legion (and all the SWEET stuff Dage the Evil has for us)!

The Soul Decider

Dage the Evil is picking the Winners now

Judging for the Dage the Evil Fan Art Contest is underway!

 Dage Fan Art Contest

This contest was SO HUGE—over 800 epic entries OMG—that I needed help from our wonderful volunteers! When you see these guys and girls in-game, be sure to give them a great big THANK YOU for helping manage the Dage Contest with me =D

We can only wonder whom Dage the Evil will pick as the grand prize winner—and receiver of a specially crafted weapon from the Undead Legion Lord himself. Runner-ups will receive an exclusive Undead Legion back item/cape to show the world their undying devotion.

And, as always, additional AdventureCoin prizes will be awarded to those who went above and beyond! Woohoo!

The Importance of Writing your Name

There were sooooOOOO many awesome Dage Fan Art submissions that DID NOT have a player name on them. I’m talking AMAZING. Like 1st Place Winner material.

But, in the contest rules, in huge font and bolded:

7. Include your AQW character name on your submitted picture AND in your post so we know who to award the prizes to!

Just like in school, if you don’t put your name on your paper, you can’t get credit for your hard work =( And it’s not fair to those who followed the contest rules and included their player name, you know?

So, here’s what we’re ganna do: If you DID have an amazing piece of art that made it to the finals, but DID NOT include your AQW player name on your submission, check your inventories after the winners have been announced for a Note from Dage the Evil. He might toss you some Undead Legion Tokens for your hard work. Maybe. He is Dage the Evil after all… but maybe he’ll become Dage the Understanding =p

Following directions is super important—not just in AQWorlds Contests, but in the real world, too. Hooray for learning lessons =D

ANYHOO! Stay tuned for more Dage the Evil Fan Art Contest updates! Don’t know when Dage the Evil will be finished judging all your wonderful submissions, but as soon as he’s done, we will announce the winners here on the Design Notes!

Keep up the great work, and Battle On!

3rd Annual AE Pumpkin Carving Contest!



pumpkin banner


It's that spooky time of year again and in my first ever Design Notes post (muahahaha!) I am super duper excited to announce the 3rd Annual AE Pumpkin Carving Contest! BoooOOOooOoo!

Something wicked this way comes... Mogloween fast approaches! We're calling out to you, Heroes, for some wicked cool AE-themed pumpkin carvings!

The past two years have shown that you guys are INCREDIBLE carvers. Check them out for inspiration; 2009 Pumpkins & 2010 Pumpkins!

Starting RIGHT NOW, we'll be taking submissions over at the forums. This contest ends Monday, October 31st. Winners will be announced on the Design Notes and the Forums on Friday, November 4th!

Like the previous years, the Grand Prize winner(s) will receive 5,000 AdventureCoins and additional prizes may be awarded to other groovy gourds! This includes a custom Mogloweeny weapon!

How does one enter, Samba? WELL, first you take a step to the left, and then a jump to the right...

Wait-wait that's not it! These rules and guidelines are simple but MUST be followed accordingly for your entry to be considered eligible:

• Your pumpkin MUST be carved BY YOU! 

• Only ONE photo submitted per person, please. 

• Your pumpkin MUST be your own ORIGINAL WORK! Any work that is copied via Internet and/or Stencils or simply Copy-Pasted of some supreme pumpkin-carving legend will lead to an automatic DISQUALIFICATION. 

• Your pumpkin MUST be carved in an AE theme. Check out pumpkins from 2009 and 2010!! 

• Include an index card or a piece of paper with the year (2011) and your (and only your) AQW Character Name--this way we really know it's made by you, and so we can award you with AC prizes if you win! Make sure your AQW name is readable and legible! 

• Your pumpkin carving can relate to anything from AdventureQuest Worlds or any other Artix Entertainment game! 

• Your canvas must be a pumpkin or another form of squash and/or gourd. 

• The photo of your carved pumpkin must be of the Highest Quality—the bigger and more clear the picture, the better! Make sure that you provide a VALID URL to your photo. Try using a reliable photo uploader like Photobucket, TinyPic or Twitpic. 

• You have until 11:59pm EST on Monday, October 31st to submit a photo of your carved pumpkin! 

Questions? Ready to submit? Go haunt the Pumpkin Carving Contest Thread!

Carve on!

Screenshot Contest Winners

Congratulations To All Who Won!

Earlier today Ai No Miko updated the Screenshots page with the new screenshots! Excellent job, heroes! We had a really hard time selecting winners, and we want to thank everyone who entered! For a  list of winners, please click the picture below or click THIS LINK.

Winners will receive their prizes today! There are also four winners in the Humor category who will receive a small reward, as well! Thanks to everyone who entered!

THIS WEEKEND: Member Only Skyguard Storyline Continues!

Treachery and subterfuge are the order of the day! We left not knowing whether the SkyGuard High Command was safe after being attacked in the Land of Dreams and Nightmares. This week you find out what happened to them, and what is in store for Lore! (Hint: Lots and lots of explosions!)

Head to the Department of Strategization to help plan the Skyguard's next move. But beware, because the SkyPirates have teamed up with other SkyPirate flights (if a group of butterflies is a flutter and a group of camels is a flock (?!), then a group of SkyPirates is a flight.) and they are pressing forward with their attack!

We will also be opening our next LIMITED TIME SHOP for Members this weekend. You will be able to see the time ticking down until this special Member Only Armor goes rare!

On a smaller front we also hope to add items to both the Player Suggestion shop and the Treasure Chests this weekend. LOTS of items coming your way either way as we head into October and start to celebrate AdventureQuest Worlds' 3rd Birthday!

Speaking Of Birthdays

It's almost 3rd Upholder time again!

October is AQWorlds' anniversary month! And THAT means that anyone who upgrades (as long as your upgrade exxpires ON or AFTER November 4th, 2011) will become a 3rd Upholder! That'll get you a sweet character page achievement and the EPIC Platinum Star Sword! (The Star Sword will not be released until November 4th.)

Last Chance for TLPD Items.

Just a little reminder that Quibble will be leaving THIS FRIDAY and talking all of this year's Talk Like A Pirate Day rares with him.

If there's something in there that you want and haven't gotten yet, this is your last chance. THESE ITEMS WILL NEVER RETURN!

The ENTIRE AE Team is taking a one week break from making games... TO MAKE GAMES!

Yes my friend, you read that right! Next week, starting on Monday we are having the 1st ever one-week-long AE Game Making Challenge!

WHAT!? You are making 7+ new games next week?
The entire staff (everyone from AdventureQuest, DragonFable, EpicDuel, MechQuest, AdventureQuest worlds) will be forming into small teams of 2 to 3 people. Each team's goal is to create a new game in only 5 days. The rules are: Anything goes & make anything you want! So far there are 7 teams. The competition starts on Monday and ends Friday night... at which time we all get to play everyting that they make!

How will the contest be judged?
You and the staff will both judge. We are going to post several polls on the forums which will rate the completed games in different categories (Overall, Fun, Graphics, Sound/Music.)

Is this a good idea?
100% YES. After doing the weekly releases every week, for so many years, the team needs to mix things up and get their creative juices flowing. That is something that all of the big games will benefit from in the following weeks. Also, it will be really interesting to watch and see what happens!

What will the games be like?
Everyone is making whatever they want... so your guess is as good as mine, LOL! But there is only one week to make the finished game so they will likely be mini-game sized or prototypes/alphas for larger game concepts. Teams can create their own artwork, sound, and engine from scratch or are free to use things thay have already made. The goal is to be as creative as possible and have fun, there are no rules... just games!

Can I watch?
We would love for you to watch and help us with ideas while we are working on the games! We are going to post a special design notes for all teams and we are going to periodically stream live video in AdventureQuest Worlds. (A sneak peek into the secret underground lab... about to be 3.14159% less secret.)

What about the normal Big Game releases?
This Friday (just like every week) we have exciting releases coming out for you. Next weekend the games will all be running their special Valentine's Day events. So this really was the perfect time to do this. The best part is... if all team are successful, you could get 7 new games to play next Friday too! Maybe we can add achievements for beating all of them to the Master Account?

AWESOME! I cannot wait!
Enjoy the releases this weekend. Starting Monday... we are making some games! (I cannot believe how much I am looking forward to this. It feels like Christmas.)

K is for Kookie

2010 Cookie Contest Music & Video!

The Kookie, Monster Cookie Hork returns with a song about this years player-made AQWorlds cookies! (Note: This was totally unplanned... we got so inspired by your cookies we fired up the amps and even made the extremely deep, sophisticated, and intellectually challenging lyrics on the fly as we recorded it live!) The pictures are in random order (Sorted by Chaos!) My apologies for any missing pictures -- crazy editing may have eaten a few. Everyone did a great job -- I am so impressed with all of the entries! WARNING: Video will make you HUNGRY for COOKIES!

YouTube Challenge: Can you sing cookie more times in 15 seconds than the Cookie Hork? Make a video and link me on Twitter.

Contest Winners

The contest has been judged... it was the hardest thing we ever had to do. Honestly, everyone who entered in this contest deserves to win. One of the most interesting was Beowolve's Cookie sword. At first glance it may look like a poorly made sword cookie with some sprinkles... but next to it is the actual in-game sword Cysero drew last year. That is right -- Beowolve perfectly re-created it placing each and every dot with the right color in the exact same spot. The other entires had simliar level of incredible detail -- study each one closely! ... and congratulations everyone, GREAT JOB!
