It was our toughest Chaos battle to date, but we turned out victorious with the help of our dedicated volunteers and talented artists (aka our beloved AQW heroes like you)!

Chaos Lord Fan Art Contest Update

Lord of Chaos Fan Art winners will soon be announced!

The first ever Chaos Fan Art Contest was a HUGE success—over 900 entries were submitted!

its over 900 meme adventurequest worlds

It's over 9000--oh wait. I modified the meme. Deal with it. 

And, as you can probably imagine, it was quite chaotic to review each and every submission, place them in front of a panel of judges, and narrow down all our favorites—aaaand not to mention, having to coordinate ALL OF THAT around vacation time, sick days (*cough* like me *cough*), graduations, and the like!

So I am pleased to report that we will begin announcing the Chaos Fan Art Contest winners today—starting with the 1st Lord of Chaos, Escherion!

Akkiles Escherion hydra fan art

As you are reading this, I am feverishly setting up another Design Notes post for the 1st Lord of Chaos Fan Art winners. Then tomorrow, I will announce the 2nd Lord of Chaos winners; Wednesday I’ll announce 3rd LoC winners; and Thursday will be 4th LoC winnars (as time and sanity allows, of course.)

As Friday is release day, we will *most likely* have to wait until Monday next week to resume the Lord of Chaos Fan Art winners. Unless I get A LOOOT of coffee in my system or something. MAN THE COFFEE MAKER, ALINA!

Super Special Thank You!

Our wonderful AQW Mods and Volunteers helped make the Chaos Fan Art Contest a HUGE success. We could not have gathered all 934 entries withtout their help, so when you see these guys and gals in game, be sure to give them a great big /hug and a joyful /cheer!

Asuka, Capn Cio, Eonaleth, Gjappy, Judge Acumen, Rarest, Soki, Tendou no Mazo, Tenzan, and Zereldo!

Alrighty, enough chit-chat; I know you’ve been waiting FOREVER for the winners, so let me get back to work so you can feast your eyes on Chaos Lord Escherion Fan Art!

Battle on!

Sole Soul Decider

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!


Lelouch vii britania
Lil kenichi
Lupus The Wolf
Marina of Norway
Mechaprime 00
Trainer Spyro
WerePyre Wolf
Wolfblade Raven

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)!
