This Weekend: Beleen's Chaos Incarnate

Save AQWorlds from Chaos Queen Beleen!

Beleen, Artix Entertainment's bubbliest, most positively-pink developer has discovered the sad, abandoned village of Drearia and vows to bring it back to life. But after accidentally stumbling Nulgath the ArchFiend, lord of the Oversoul and former ruler of the Underworld, her powers of randomness and cheer... mutate in the STRANGEST way possible!

Starting tonight, /join Drearia and battle your way through Beleen's re-envisioning of AQWorlds... cuter, pinker, and with MUCH more Chaos! If you don't want to battle through a pink world, we need YOU to stop her! 

Find the rare gear shop in your game menu, with new (unpink) items from Nulgath!* Then head into Beleen's adventure and begin the battle (plus, get some super-sweet monster drops, if you're lucky)!

* If you follow my Twitter feed, you know that I am absolutely crazy about the chibi nulgath! I could not stop turning it into more and more gear. Real Fiends go Chibi!

A Message from Beleen

Weeeeee! I just know you are going to love-love-LOVE this special… albeit CRAZY!... release that me and the AQWorlds team have spent 3 weeks developing. It was A LOT of work (requiring A LOT of caffeine), but it was totally worth the long hours and coffee-stained smile because I really wanted to make my Chaos Beleen storyline the most fun and memorable release in the game’s history.

…aaaand not to mention, I kinda wanted MY release to totally PWN Cysero’s and Artix’s events. Teehehhehee >:D

Artix scream pink paladin chaos queen beleen funnyBut! In order for that dream to come to fruition, I am going to need your help. I need YOU to join the #BeleenTeam and help spread the word of this weekend's Chaos Queen Beleen event!

Invite all your friends to come play AQ.com tomorrow night with us, and if you happen to know someone who used to play AQWorlds, let them know that I designed this new release and I would love it if they came back and played AQW with me! Woohoo!!

Thanks so much for making my fantasy (…of forcing Artix to wear pink, LOL!) into reality, and I really hope you enjoy playing tomorrow’s Chaos Queen Beleen release alongside me, Artix, Nulgath, and 30000 of our closest friends!

Pink On and Battle On!

xoxo Beleen =D

Deadmoor Spirit: The Stolen Screams

BACK on the Design Notes and On Your Screen... IN GREEN!

Hey guys! It seems like it's been forever since I was able to post something here and I can honestly say that it's nice to be back. I've been getting such a warm reception from all of you and it's just...
...really...
... nice. 


Moving on! Last week you got to play through Artix's first guest star release and this week you get mine! I need your help in Deadmoor, returning the stolen voice for the ghost of a little girls who was murdered more than a century ago...

... but you're not alone. The Queen of All Monsters has sent one of her most capable bounty hunters to Deadmoor, and they have plans for this little spirits stolen screams. 

But wait, there's more (moor?)...

MY PERSONAL GEAR! 

I've also decided to let you guys have my own, personal Mad Weaponsmith armor and my glowing Super Hammer. They are free for ALL players, and 0AC so you don't need to worry about storage. 
All you need to do is complete the release that I designed and you will unlock the quests that lead to my stuff. It will take a while (Members get perks so it will take them much less time),but all you have to do is put in a little effort and they are yours for the keeping. Enjoy with my blessing. 

In the quest you will also find drops, a shop filled with Member gear, Non-member gear and a few AC items, and I've even included a bonus cutscene that lets you know a little bit more about me. 

I hope you have as much fun playing through this as I had writing it and watching helplessly as the AQW staff assembled it. This must be the feeling that a writer has when they see a movie of their book for the first time.
