DragonCon Cometh!

Posted by on 18 comments

Only 2.5 weeks left before the best convention of the year

DragonCon takes place every year in Atlanta, Georgia. It is a weekend long convention (Recommended ages 15+) with 30,000+ attendees... most in amazing costumes. I guess it is really like a weekend long costume party with celebrity guests (walk of fame), panels featuring the casts of your favorite sci-fi/fantasy/etc TV shows, video games, art galleries, table top games, concerts, shopping and... well, check out the schedule on the DragonCon website. As mentioned in our previous post, the Artix Entertainment team will be attending in force again this year. We will be running a panel and a fan table!

Jemini in her FLCL cosplayOur artist Jemini (pictured above) has like 3 different costumes to wear this year.

Come see us at DragonCon

  • Artix Entertainment ALL GAMES Panel:  Saturday @ 5:30pm at the Hilton in Grand Salon E! 
  • Fan Table: We are taking turns running it all weekend. Located... um... wherever all the cool fan tables are.

 P.S. I just made my first TOUT! (New animation run cycle for AQ3D by Korin)

Kodix 101: Nice running animations! But, I hope the character's won't be bald or bare-footed in game when we get to Beta. I can't wait for the interesting hairstyles you guys will make! :D Maybe you guys should make shoes not only color customizable but changable like how weapons, helms, etc. are set up.

StormComet: First of all, I won't be able to attend DragonCon unless it suddenly decides to go up North :( Would have chosen the Assassin class armor from the original AdventureQuest to wear, simply because it's Epic :) And second of all, is Jemini wearing colored contacts, or is that her natural eye color?

Daggath: Do you reckon you could live stream from DragonCon so the non-american players could see what's going on? Also get whatever item people from visiting the panel get if they are a member and stay on the stream for more than an hour or so? Or something like that. Because it really isn't fair that people that live nowhere near Atlanta and/or can't afford to get there and see you guys? Just a suggestion.

Then again, I wasn't able to attend the previous DragonCons either!

Withered: Why would Dage even give us the hope of getting the Paragon armor set when there is no hope of winning? I hope he will give us another chance to get that set.

Kyontik SoulHoarder: As an avid fan of all of Artix Entertainment games, I have always wanted to meet Dage, Artix, or any other of the creators of the game. However, I have not been able to come down to Georgia (?) to ever meet any of the moderators of AQW. AQW being my main game that I play. I have paid for member ship since 2010, and have supported Artix Entertainment through payment of Adventure Coins and membership. It has been a small
hope/dream that someone like Dage or Solrac would see the fan art that I do for AQW.

One of these years, I'll see you guys at DragonCon.
