Surprise! We're switching our plans up.

So, everything we told you yesterday?  Is changing.
Sorry!  But don't worry, it will all be alright.  Because not only are you getting a DragonsGrasp quest on Friday, but on Thursday (oh happy, happy Thursday!) you're getting a Codemonkey Challenge from Rolith!*

He's told me some details about it, and I have to be honest.  This one sounds like knee-slapping, head-banging FUN!  And not the heavy metal, guitar-smashing kind of head-banging, either.  No, you'll definitely want to try solving this CMC on the forums with all your fellow players, because it's going to take a real group effort to solve.  What he's doing is something we've never done in ANY of our games, so be prepared to work hard! Rolith says it's going to be IMPOSSIBLE to solve with one character, so you're going to definitely have to work together.  Remember to play nice on Thursday when it releases or, so help me, I will TURN this game RIGHT AROUND and we will go back home WITHOUT getting icecream! OR pie. OR doomcookies.**

Why, you might ask, are the plans Lim so lovingly laid out yesterday being changed?  Because of surprises and secrets!  I've got a HUGE deadline looming over me like an angry, banananut-starved Gorillaphant and I've got to devote time to working on the secret project it's for.  SECRET PROJECT?!  Yup!  We are SO close to being done on it, and we haven't given you ANY details about it yet. It's going to be a big surprise, and I can't wait until I'm allowed to talk about it! (And it's entirely unrelated to DragonFable, but it IS something we've been asked for for a while now. Yay hints!)

But that's not all I'm working on this week!  I'm also going to make time to write the last quests of the Ravenloss Saga. We haven't had nearly enough weaving of Chaos, Greedy NPCs, awkward romantic moments, and eight-legged horrors!  I've got most of them written, and I have ideas for what I want to do with the last couple, but I don't have full scripts done for them yet. So for all you Ravenloss fans, more quests are coming soon!  Thanks for your patience (Tomix and I can't wait to get them going again, either, so look for those to start up again in a few weeks!)

And check the AdventureQuest Worlds Design Notes page today to see Artix writing about our time at MetroCon this weekend!

* I told him I was writing a Design Notes about them and he started cackling.  Cackling like the crazy witch of a Knight Captain he is!
** Doomcookies! The cookies of the Dark Side.
