So Much To Do....
It's been a crazy Friday! Between the live musical event in AdventureQuest Worlds, Rolith and Alina both getting kidnapped (seriously?! Where'd you guys go? I blame the ficus) and Lim having World Cup Fever, it's been a busy day. Luckily I was able to trap Ghost and wherever Rolith went he forgot to unlock Khelios!
Dragonsgrasp: An Icy Wind
The Dragonsgrasp Saga has officially begun! Visit Inspector Doyle in the Baker Street Inn to play through the first quest in the epic DragonLord chain. An icy wind has started to blow through Lore... at the beginning of summer?
Help Nythera escape from the Void! Can she make her way back home without Elysia's help?
The cape upgrade shop will go live tomorrow morning! Show your support for your favorite team!
The Programmer Formally Known as Personator... is Khelios!
Khelios has been a busy, busy apprentice this week (Well, every week since he has to do what Rolith wants him to do...)! He's been working hard on...
Cracking the case: The meanings of the Eggs
So, the pattern of colors on eggs must have some significance, and having read in many legends, stories, and myths about them, I can safely assure you that the designs on these eggs all have a hidden meaning that you may not be aware of.
So, what exactly have I found? Dragon eggs with these patterns give them a significant advantage in their fighting abilities that exceeds that of normal dragons.
Egg 1: This egg swirls with toxic and sickening colors that, when unleashed, are poisonous to your foe, giving them a severe allergic reaction to it.
Egg 2: This egg hatched into a dragon cool and collected under pressure. Even the most patient creatures are subject to intense bursts of anger...
Egg 3: The initial view of the egg seemed to indicate that it was covered in lava. Having been exposed to extreme heat, this mysterious pattern actually keeps the owner cool and focused in the heat of battle...
Egg 4: This egg ripples out from a central point. Strange phenomena, such as shockwaves and quakes, are experienced when the egg is mishandled...
Egg 5: Part of this egg seems frozen, cold, and unrelenting. That very unrelenting presence has been known to upset migratory creatures and send a cold chill down the spine of even the strongest of beasts.
Egg 6: Like flames rising, the power within this egg grows more and more brilliant over time.
Egg 7: The swirling void on this egg seems to sap energy and life away from those around it.
Egg 8: I could hardly find information on this egg - if it exists, it is well hidden. It is a very inconspicuous egg that may harbor some surprises...
Egg 9: This malignant egg seems to thrive on the pain and suffering of others.
Egg 10: The symbol on this egg shows an enormous projection of energy exploding from a central point. One could guess that this egg stores power and suddenly expels it.
Egg 11: A sense of peace and tranquility emanate from this egg. It is rumored to cure diseases and restore life to the dying.
Egg 12: The wisps of color are said to be dictated by the flowing of the wind. The egg itself is as light as a feather...
Egg 13: This egg is sparkling just like solid gold. It is said to be able to put any passerby into a trance...
Egg 14: Shadows float around this egg at their own will. The shadows are rumored to harm both the physical being of an opponent and their very will to live...
Egg 15: The spots on this egg may have resulted from the egg's struggle against a disease. The magic appears to be keeping the disease at bay; however one must be careful in handling it to prevent catching it themselves!
Egg 16: This egg glows with a sickening green color. If exposed to wildlife for too long, rumors run that the wildlife will become mutated.
Egg 17: It has been hinted at in legends that this egg grows brighter in color when it is not threatened.
Egg 18: Is there anything worse than being hit by a biting wind on a frigid day? Well, the very design of the egg seems to have been sculpted by buildups of ice and snow blowing about it...
Egg 19: The wisps in this egg appear to ebb with clockwork regularity. They infrequently speed up to twice their normal speed, but the significance of this virtually unknown.
Egg 20: Some say this egg can produce a wide range of frequencies of sound. The locals have reported deep throaty rumbles and shattered glassware ever since the egg was brought near the town.
Egg 21: The pattern on this dragon egg is a fairly archaic pattern used in some magical trinkets to increase luck significantly.
Egg 22: All that is known about this egg is found in healers' diaries. All written information about it gives little information about its power, apart from its ability to heal deep wounds over a large amount of time.
Egg 23: In myths of old, great villains tried to break open this egg but were harmed by the very damage given to the egg. Despite being slightly cracked, it remains intact.
Egg 24: Violent patterns swirl around this egg, much like a vortex of air.
Egg 25: Many writers describe the markings on this egg to be similar to an ink blot. One famous writer in particular, Edgar Alton Prose, believed this egg to be discovered in an evil house belonging to a person who helps you find your seat in a play. This startling fact may give this egg some unknown sense of evil...
Egg 26: Some say that great magic is under the swirling smoke of this shell, while others think it is just a cheap parlor trick. It could be the ace up your sleeve...
Egg 27: Stories speculate that this egg could be dropped off the tallest mountain and would not crack due to its protective shell.
Egg 28: Three distinct lines run down the sides of the egg. They are said to drastically increase reflexes and greatly hasten the user to do normally impossible feats! However, such impossible feats come at a price...
Egg 29: The very color of this egg can drastically shift one's mood, causing anywhere from mild to severe anger spikes. Not one researcher has studied it enough before getting angry and burning all the materials they found, so it remains a mystery.
Egg 30: Rumors speculate that the colors dripping down the egg become more intense each time the egg suffers damage.
Egg 31: The grayness of the egg is speculated to come from the shadow of the moon mixing with the brightness of the sun. Is believed that both the shadow of an eclipse and the sun's halo around the moon affect the egg's strength.
Egg 32: Many arcane Mathemancers have argued for centuries over what this egg's symbol means. Not one seems to be able to find the exact value of this symbol.
Egg 33: The runes glow glaringly as if they contain numerous spells built up from over the course of thousands of years. You should be glad they aren't targeted against you...
Egg 34: The arcane symbols have been dissected by mages and found to affect many tactical aspects of fighting.
Egg 35: No legends anywhere mention anything about this egg. What it could do is virtually unknown.
I hope you all enjoy this week's release! The summer is just beginning... and I think it's going to be unseasonably cold....
