Best Way to Cure a Cold?

The Kind-Hearted Komarci97 Knows How!

Hiya, heroes! If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you know that I’ve been pretty sick the past few days >…<

Being sick totally sucks, and it’s hard to stay upbeat when you’re feeling under the weather.  But when I got into the lab this morning, I found this envelope sitting on my desk. Cue instant smile!

And look what was inside the envelope: a bright shiny pink card, which reads Boldog Születésnapot!

That means “Happy Birthday!” in Hungarian. Fellow AQWorlds player Komarci97, who hails from Hungary, wrote a super sweet letter, too! Awwww <3

And… OMG… there’s earrings in the card! And they’re not just normal earrings—they are decorated with a special Hungarian Kalocsa folk pattern.

Kalocsa is one of the most beautiful Hungarian towns with a great folk art history! And Komarci97 shared its beauty with me!!!

Thank you SO MUCH Komarci97 for making me feel SO MUCH better and feel SO beautiful despite me being SO sick! 

And this is why I love being part of AdventureQuest Worlds. Everyone who plays AQWorlds is my family, and no matter where you hail from—be it Hungary like Komarci97, or Brazil like Tendou, or anywhere else in the world—I couldn’t be more happy to call you all my brothers and sisters ^___^

Kindness is the best remedy to quell my cold, and I cannot thank you all enough for being my on-call doctors. And super special thank you to Dr. Komarci97 for mailing me my much needed medicine =)

Stay Healthy my loves, and Battle On!

xoxo Beleen! =D

If you've read Artix's AQ3D Design Notes today, you'll see that many of the people in the Secret Underground Lab have caught the Lab Plague. Cysero and Samba were out today recuperating, though Samba sick-swayed through animating half of the cutscenes! Cysero cranked out some of the event's NPCs while on the road to recovery, and I was down for the count earlier in the week.

I guess you could say we've been working "feverishly" on this event! /gong

PS: Believe it or not, one of the most time-consuming parts about writing the Design Notes is not the writing itself. It's gathering art assets and making up the graphics. Sorry for the late Notes.
