Excellent question! Starting this Friday, August 21st, at 3:00 PM server time, the intial stock of our Limited Quantity Packages will be released. Once they are, you'll need to:

Dage Invades the Mirror Realm

August 21st: Battle Between Good vs Evil in the Mirror Realm!

The Queen of Monsters has been plotting for centuries - even before she was released into our world, her whispers found their way into the ears of those who would listen. Alteon the Imbalanced was ready to listen. Dage the Evil was ready to listen. And now, those two dark commanders have allied and are massing to take out the forces of Good in the Mirror Realm!

This Friday, travel to the Overworld but know this - whether you battle for Good or Evil, your goal remains the same - you must return Dage the Evil to our world and Alteon the Imbalanced's portal key must be... dealt with... or the psychic reverberations will resonate throughout the galaxy, causing greater and greater rifts. Everywhere!

Featuring the character cast of:

  • Dage the Evil
  • Alteon the Imbalanced 
  • Evil Ice Drakonnan
  • Dark ArchMage Brentan  
  • InnDestroyer Yulgar 
  • Beleen, She Who Strikes from the Shadows
  • Dage the Good
  • Nulgath the Archangel 
  • Aranx the Good
  • Memet, Dream Moglin
  • Twig who loves Broccoli and Hummus

You are not going to want to miss these releases - I saw ACW0's scripts, and there is a VERY interesting secret you'll find out... about yourself... that you have NEVER known before!

Science, Technology, and AQWorlds

7-12th Graders Use Videogames to Learn about Technology

At the Tangipahoa African American Heritage Museum's STEM Summer Camp, a group of dedicated counselors and crazy-smart, enthusiastic teens are leveling up their real-life Intellect and Wisdom stats through science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses. And to give them extra hands-on experience, one computer science class taught by Artix Entertainment volunteer Cody Moore, has its students create characters in AdventureQuest Worlds and HeroSmash!

AQWorlds: Virtual Classroom

Moore, one of AE's volunteer testers, told us about his incredible class of students, explaining how they've been using AQWorlds and HeroSmash to learn about how the internet works: how anyone can connect to people on the other side of the world, work together to accomplish their goals, and keep their personal information secure. 

"Some of them actually already played AQW, and it was amazing to see them teaching the new players in the class how to play the game! [...] It really blew their minds when I explained to them what all went into making the games and how many different kinds of jobs there are to do in the game design field!" - Cody Moore, camp counselor

STEM Summer Camp

The camp, based out of Hammond, Lousiana, offers several different classes for the students to choose from, focused on science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and aeronautics, all geared towards helping them prepare for future career opportunities.

Moore's class focuses on subjects like:

  • computer hardware 
  • software installation
  • basic networking and trouble-shooting 
  • internet safety and privacy

After his students finished covering the planned coursework, Moore took time to explore a career many of them were curious about: videogame development. He covered the different types of jobs available, how videogames are made, and what steps to take to pursue careers in the future. 

STEM's Students: Inspired and Inspiring

We were so inspired by Moore's students and their enthusiasm, we've added the STEMWare OS Computer house item in-game, to commemorate their drive and desire to reach their goals, realize their dreams, and build the worlds they want to live in!

We need to encourage as many people like them as we can to choose careers in the STEM fields. That's the only way to make sure we have the future scientists, engineers, innovators, and programmers we need to invent time machines, explore the galaxy, and defy the laws of science.

(We're also making sure Moore and his students have everything they need to battle through this summer's in-game events AND the rest of their classes in style!)

Defeat the Guardian of the Underworld

Defeat GRRRberus, Guardian of the Gates next Friday!

After battling through the Vale of Mourning and standing before the three Judges of the Underworld, Dage the Evil has granted you permission to approach his Dark Throne! 

But after passing through the Gate... something is not right: Grrrberus, Guardian of the Underworld, and other infernal creatures have succumbed to the Frozen Flame and are rampaging through Dage's Fortress, attacking anyone bearing Dage's Seal! 

Defeat the three-headed beast and discover why Dage's fiercest enemy has breached his lair NOW... before YOU fall under her spell, too!

Origin of Grrrberus, Guardian of the Underworld

The big bad beast in the picture up above is named Grrrberus, Guardian of the Underworld. His name is a reference to Cerberus, the three-headed dog that guarded the gate to the Underworld of Greek mythology,* preventing the dead from leaving and the living from entering. He is one of my favorite mythological creatures, and I love how Dage the Evil recreated him!

free online mmo cerberus

The original Cerberus is the offspring of Echidna, a hybrid half-woman/half-serpent (talk about a Mother of Monsters!) and Typhon, a gigantic monster feered by even the Greek gods. Some say each of the three heads can see a different point in time - past, present, and future.

Shadow of Cerberus Drops and Rares Shop

Victory is its own reward, but if you want to seize the REAL prize, you'll need to WORK! The Grrrberus boss monster will have a chance to drop a lesser version of the Shadow of Cerberus armor as well as merge tokens which you can use to upgrade the entire set! The Blood of Cerberus armor and accessories will be available for a limited-time in the release rares shop.

* You can see Grrberus' puppy form in DragonFable, our single-player fantasy RPG!

Undead Goat Class and NSoD Updates

Updates Are Coming!

In addition to the weekly releases (with new storyline updates, shops, farming gear, and challenge monsters) and working on the upcoming Summer 2015 Return of the Living Devs events, we've got a number of side projects that we are working on each week, like the Undead Goat Class, Necrotic Blade of Doom, and more... and we know many of you are incredibly eager to get your gauntlets on these hot-ticked items. So without further ado, read on for project updates and new details.

Undead Goat Class Status: In Progress

Our Class designers have been hard at work (amidst classes ending, real-life jobs, and summer insanity interfering) to create the Undead Goat Class - chosen by Noobstine, winner of the I Can Has Mod contest - and they have made progress. In order to make sure the Undead Goat Class does not resemble others too closely, we're taking extra time to review the skills and come up with a combination that will do Noobstine's theme and generosity justice.

Because the Golden Cheezburger is a 0AC item, you can store it for free in your inventory. Then, when the Class is ready, you'll take it to Noobstine's NPC in Greenguard and exchange it for the Class!

Necrotic Sword of Doom Quests: In Progress

Asuka and Tendou - two of AQW's volunteer testers - have designed several challenge quests and Nulgath updates over the last year. They're crafting a quest chain that will fit both the Blade's theme and its importance to the storyline. 

Once the quests are ready, you'll speak with one of the Dark Minions in Shadowfall to begin battling for the Necrotic Sword of Doom. Prepare yourselves, Heroes, and rank up that Evil Rep!

Did someone say, "Living Dungeon Design?"

Sneak-peek at this summer’s blockbuster release

I am writing two (maybe three) releases for AdventureQuest Worlds this summer. Cysero and Beleen are coming back to write special releases too! For this one, Titan Hollow, I wrote a short story about three Titans battle for the tear of a Fairy that turned into an eternal curse. Like the most popular dungeons from Doomwood, this will be a story-crawl adventure with bonus hidden secrets for hard core gamers.

dage the evil sketch sneak peek
Designed by Dage the Evil

Originally, I wanted to make it a Grimskull dungeon, but for some reason, players hate dying horrific terrible animated deaths over and over again. <_< Not sure why. >_> Really. So instead of animating comical death cutscenes, we will be focusing on heroic acts of how to cleverly get from point A to point B which will provide scores of awesome screenshot worthy moments.

Beware of living dungeons though.... sometimes... they move. O_O

The Ancient Undead

How Old IS the Undead Legion...?

Dage's Undead Legion has a long, very dark history. Much came before the Undead Legion as we know it today was formed... and Dage has many plans for it which have not yet been revealed. In order to explore the Legion's history more fully, and better plan out suitable quests, we're going to delay releasing the Ancient Undead set until NEXT week. 

Ancient Undead Warrior

Next Friday, we'll release this set along with specific quests to let loyal members of the Undead Legion farm up the tokens necessary to purchase the coming Undead Legion Class! The Class will be available for either a ridiculous amount of Legion Tokens OR for AdventureCoins (but you will need to be a member of the Legion to buy it with ACs).

This Class will NOT go rare, and we are planning to release the Class this Summer. Warriors who have not yet learned of the Legion's power deserve to share in the deadly might and majesty of the coming Class. Fair warning, Legionnaires: You WILL want to start farming early to earn enough Legion Tokens to unlock it, though! 

Post-thought: I've got an idea crowding my brain-meat. It might be time for another Legion-based short story. Anyone up for exploring how Dage converted the first warriors to his Undead Legion?

Coming later tonight: Quibble Coinbiter's shop returns! Take on the DoomKitten Challenge boss fight in Warlic's Magic Shop OR tackle the Blood Titan (and ULTIMATE BLOOD TITAN) Challenge boss monsters in Greenguard East!
