The Royal Family
The Good King Alteon, Princesses, and the Court
Fortune smiled upon our lands the day King Alteon took up his sword and freed the people from the evil tyrant who terrorized the countryside. In fact, Castle Swordhaven was built right on top of his old wicked castle*. The King has three loving daughters... the Princesses:

* In all honesty, they should have looked underneath it first. (Good stuff coming!)

Britany, who is the eldest daughter, has the largest shoe collection in the world. She only wears armor with a Gucci or Prada tag on it! In between shopping and talking through the magical communcation pool, she enjoys staring in reality TV-orb shows.

Victoria is the middle daughter. Sickly and unable to get out of bed often, she spends most of her time reading fantasy books wishing she was the great hero in the story. Once night, she was visited by a fairy who offered to grant her ONE wish. Then, Victoria accidentally caught the fairy on fire with a candle, dropped a base case on 'em, and then when the guards came to see what all of the trouble was about she was forced to hide the fairy in her mouth. To her credit she only chewed twice... by accident! The rest of this story is yet unknown.

Tara is the youngest Princess. She loves ponies, and bunnies, and flowers and... giant man eating dragons. Hailed as "Tara the Terrible" by the guards, she often kidnaps dangerous monsters and forces them to play with her at a team party filled with dangerous magical stuffed dollies.

Also in the King's court you will find the Bersker General, the corrupt Tax Collector** and the Jester***. Finally, Castle Swordhaven is now home to the Pactaganal Knights including the respected and loved Sir Render, Sir Junn, Sir Pent, Sir Loin, Sir Kull, Sir Chandestroy, Sir Up and their shortest and hardest working members, Sir Ver!

In this week's exciting release, we are releasing the next step in the Shadowscythe chain: "Undeath Insurance Policy!" which will take you back to Castle Swordhaven where the King and his court will be eager to speak with you. As you may have already been thinking, Swordhaven is the good town, Shadowfall is the evil town, and Battleon is the great gathering place for all heros of the world. AQWorlds will not have one hub town, it will have three! I am not sure how much of Swordhaven will be ready on round one, but I wanted to write you and let you know a little bit about the people who will eventually be in castle. Both the good and the evil sides have very interesting stories -- I would like you to be able to experience both before you make your true choice which will be very hard to change. Talking about choice, this MMO is set up to break all of the rules. Because of our fluid development style, we can do anything... and this means any one of the Chaos Lords could potentially win. In most games you just plod through the storyline and the world never changes. Ours does. You have already seen this in our other games. But after 7 years of game making, we are ready to make this REALLY interesting. Anything can happen... and it will all depend on you. Battle on!

** Surprise, surprise!
*** Many people believe the Jester is actually an assassin sent to take out the king. They say his jokes kill!







What is a Lord of Chaos?
Not sure... but guessing it is not good!
All we know is that Drakath picked (or is in the middle of picking) 13 Lords of Chaos. What do you think they are? What can they do? Who are they? See you on the forums!

Character Pages
Round 1 just went live!
That is right, character pages are finally here! You can now click on another player's portrait and open their character page! Here is a link to mine. We are going to add background art, icons, and better design in the next version. This page is being developed by Ai No Miko (Her name means priestess of love in Japanese... we call her Miko). She is also the one who is building the Facebook and Myspace pages. We want to do a few new things with your characters pages. First, we want to link all of the items to encycolpedia pages that will tell you where the item comes from (Monster drop, Quest, etc.) Also we would like to make your page customizable. It should be easy to have a good or evil background for your character depending on your alignment. That is a good place to start.

Also Happening
New Game Engine Update
Yay! Being released as early as tomorrow... we have a new engine coming your way. We are replacing "Rep" with "Class Points". Not only does this make more sense, but it comes with a new balanced experience curve that will make it easier to level up your class all the way. This change is paving the path for us to add "Factions". The first two factions, obviously, will be Swordhaven and Shadowfall. See my example below:

Class: Paladin - Rank it up with class points to unlock skills
Faction: Swordhaven - Get rep to have the city like you more and access more special shops and quests.

The Book Of Lore
The Lore Grimoire is 85% finished. The code is finally working, it just needs the text added which I will try to finish and have ready for tomorrow's push.

On TV!... at Target?
I was asked today if I could supply 3-5 Minutes of High Definition game footage by Friday. This would be be chopped down to... <chuckles> 3 to 5 seconds of video that will air on those TV screens at Target during a Game Card commercial. I am going to record it from my desktop on a few different characters tonight. So if you see me running around in game tonight, be sure to give a hearty "Battle on!" and do something interesting :-) Keep in mind that only 3-5 seconds of footage is going to be used... that is probably a few swings of combat and a a few frames from a cutscene. But still... how cool!


Martial Arts
In completely unrelated news... just in the off event you were interesting in hearing -- Thyton, Zhoom and I have started taking Muay Thai Kickboxing. It is sooo much fun! (Thyton and I have been seen battling through the hallways here at the lab) It is at the same martial arts school we are taking Krav Maga at, so we can continue our training there too. I think martial arts is a great way to improve yourself both mentally and physically. If you are not actively involved in any sports, I highly suggest looking up a local martials arts school and scheduling a demo lesson.

Note: If you are an adult, Krav Maga is, in my opinion, the best self defense system for both men and women. If you have never taken a martial art before, or are under 18, I strongly recommend Tae Kwon Do. It is the art I trained in first and earned my 3rd degree black belt. For the record (and if you need help talking your parents into letting you train) my training there is the reason I do not smoke, nor drink, no use drugs to this very day. Of course, <smiles> Martial Arts did nothing to help my spelling or grammar... (and neither will Zhoom punching me in the head at class tonight with his shiny new gloves.)

This Week's Release
J6 just built a very interesting new dungeon! As Swordhaven and Shadowfall are recovering from the way, a mysterious enemy gains power in the distance... and good guys will finally get their shop!

A few words from the Underground Lab
Artix on a plane..
Hi everyone! Artix has been dispatched by the S.O.O.U.S (Secret Order of Undead Slayers) on a secret mission to New York.

Fear not, though... as the release is still on schedule! But for the first time... I'm in charge. *gulp*

Hmm... I wonder if we're all ready for this? Things are rolling along right on track here at the Lab, and it's time to get back to work!

My first release
Will Artix ever leave town again..
All things considered, that didn't go too badly! I'd like to give a huuuuuge thanks to Llussion, Miltonius, Zhoom and J6 for all their help this week - I'd never have made it without them.

Gravelyn in Shadowfall has a brand new quest for you this week (Member only for the first week) You'll get to meet some of the strangest creatures in Lore - from the TaxMan to his pet PigDrake.

I had a lot of fun working on this release - I hope you enjoy it!

PostSubject: AQW Information!   Sat Feb 28, 2009 1:47 am

Empress of the Shadowscythe

Gravelyn's Second Quest
Unlife Insurance!
Part 2 of Gravelyn's story is released - her father is gone, but he has left her his Unlife insurance. The only problem is, she doesn't know how much it is for! It's your job to find Alteon's Tax Collector and redeem the Unlife insurance for Gravelyn.

Are you up for the challenge?

Also released this week - the Good shop - in Alteon's Castle. In appreciation for your aid in this truce with Gravelyn, he has opened up the Castle Armory to all who choose to fight for Good. Armours, capes, helms and pets can all be found in the shop - only in the cleared castle.
