Return to the Mirror Realm to Save Yourself!
Last week, the Champion of Order in the Mirror Realm, Mirror Drakath, contacted you with grave news: because you have no reflection in the Mirror Realm, the Universe has been thrown out of balance, and the cracks are only spreading. What does that mean?
You know what's not balanced? Two Evil Twins in one realm.
If you don't correct the imbalance, YOU will be erased from the multiverse. It's the standard self-protection sequence most universes enact. Not so fun when you're the one being obliterated, though!
Journey to the Mirror Realm with Drakath to discover what you can do to restore balance, and HURRY! You know Xing and Xang are never far when a good opportunity to cause Chaos presents itself!
Balance the Universe, or be Erased... Forever!
You've journeyed into the Underworld already, but this week in the conclusion to our 2-part Mirror Realm adventure,* you'll need to find Dage the Good in the Overworld! He'll help you reach the strange, celestial egg that is the key to saving your future... and your life!
You like your strange, celestial eggs burnt to a crisp, right?
Sounds Easy, Right? Wrong!
There's nothing more Chaotic than pure, random chance, and nothing embodies that more than risking everything on an unsure gamble. You'll need to decide whether or not to strike a deal with one of the most influential people in BOTH realms... or your luck - and your life - will run out!
* THIS arc of the Xing/Xang storyline is over, but you know the Twins... you aren't done with them until they are done with you! The next time you'll see them, they'll have a Chaos Beast ready to face you!

The Mirror Realm is Calling You Back.
Many of you were not here for the 2010 AQW Birthday Event, hosted by Paul and Storm with special musical guest Jonathan Coulton (which was amazing).
You can read a little bit about the fun we had HERE and you will also be able to re-watch the cutscenes from the event in the new Mirror Realm event starting TOMORROW! Before you cross over to the crazy backwards town of Battleoff (where Aria is a butcher, Warlic is a dim-witted scientist and Alina is a short-tempered poison mistress... and a blonde) there are some things that you need to know.
In this strange reflection of our own existence Drakath is gathering the Lords of Order to help him fight the powerful darkness sweeping across the land. Gravelyn The Good leads the Lightscythe army from her palace in Brightfall, while evil King Alteon the Imbalanced threatens to destroy everything with the crushing force of his undead army.
Crossing over to the Mirror Realm (or them coming here) takes an enormous amount of power and whatever crosses has to trade places with its reflection, unless you come from OUTSIDE the Multiverse (like Paul & Storm, the interdimensional bards) or you are you.
You are very special. For an unknown reason there is no reflection of you so crossing over takes much less energy. Unfortunately this has tipped the scales of dimensional balance and as you have grown in power, the imbalance has become greater and greater.
In such cases the multiverse can heal itself by removing the problem and erasing you from ever having existed in space-time. Your good friend, Drakath (the one from the other side) has not forgotten what you did for him and his friends on your last visit and will stop at nothing to help you find some way to balance your existence in his universe... but what could possibly balance out the vast effects that you've had in your own reality?
Find out, tomorrow!

Quibble Coinbiter's Shop gets NEW Gear Friday!
We have had an OVERWHELMING amount of positive feedback from you guys on this Quibble shop... and even more suggestions about what we should put in it this Friday! Read below to see an incomplete list of what's coming.
Nax the (sane) Cryomancer is the Mirror Realm version of Xan the Insane Pyromancer*. In the Mirror Realm, his skull doesn't NEED healing flames because he wasn't injured. So many of you flooded us with requests an icy skull helm, though, that Memet came up with something to cool your rage!**
* DragonFable players know that Xan used to be called Alexander, but for ease of recognition, we're keeping Mirror Xan's name as Nax.
* No one was really angry, but the pun worked well!
- Blade of Awful (mirror Blade of Awe)
- Blade of Auld (mirror Blade of Awe)
- Sword of Despair (mirror Blade of Hope)
- Evil Star Slasher (mirror Star Slasher)
Also arriving this week in Quibble's shop:
