In anticipation of tonight's DoomWood II release in AdventureQuest Worlds, Dage the Evil painted this horrifically dark and foreboding picture of Sepulchure! If you are a long time player of our games, then you already know that the DoomKnight Sepulchure was the main villain of DragonFable and was expected to be the main villain of AQWorlds -- until the unexpected twist at during the game's intro that changed everything. Now, Sepulchure's Daughter, Gravelyn, leads the evil forces of the Shadowscythe. Although, she secretly wishes her Father were still there to guide her. I uploaded a high res image of Dage's painting for you to download and use as a wallpaper: 1920x1200 Sepulchure Wallpaper
Fan Mail! :-)
We get a lot of awesome fan mail (THANK YOU!!!!!) But this is the first time I was sent a magical unicorn summoning horseshoe.... so.... um.... photo/screenshot or it did not happen.
Collectors Figures coming May 18th
The Artix and Sepulchure collectors figures will be available at Toys"R"Us (US locations) May 23rd and HeroMart.com (shipping world wide) on May 18th... which is next Friday. The cards that come with the figures turned out really good and let smart players pull off some exceptionally brilliant exploit moves in the card game. All of the items that come with the figures (including a class and Castle with working trap door) are now in the database and we tested. Yesterday, Kiara, Galanoth and I did a little photoshoot of the figures and will be posting figures on the Artix Krieger FaceBook page. Both HeroMart and Toys"R"Us have some of the extremely rare Black Variants. A lot of players asked if they come with anything different -- the answer is no. They are exactly the same, except the variants have Black Armor, and are limited quantity. Considering that this is our 1st game figure ever, it will most likely become our most valuable collectors item ever. I would recommend not taking them out of the box. Talking about which, Faith has "banned" me from the HeroMart chamber and told me now that my photoshoot is done I am not allowed to play with the toys until everyone can get theirs. It would be pretty funny to go to a player's house put 1,000 Artix figures, with their Battleaxes drawn on someone's lawn and blast "Battle On!" by One-Eyed Doll and see what happens when they walked outside and saw it.
3D Game Update, "GO FASTER!"
When things become "eerily quiet" it only means one of two things... 1. Everyone is working so long and fast that there has been no time to post or... well, ok, it is #1. As per the last update, we have characters and maps loading and a good amount of the animation done. Next week Zhoom and Minimal are starting on the multiplayer-side stuff while the 3D artists build the artwork for... well, check back here on back Monday and I will share a first look at our "alpha town" and tell you what we are going to be doing for the start of Alpha Testing.
Until then... have a fun, safe and adventure filled weekend. (... and DO NOT FORGET, Sunday is Mothers Day!)
