Skyguard Academy in Peril
Higher Education means Better Plotting
Head to the Academy in our latest update to the member-only Skyguard storyline! Before you arrive, you'll meet the "Master." It's not his real name, but it's the one you'll use if you don't want to relive your nightmares everytime you close your eyes. His only concern is causing Chaos, and he plans to use the Skyguard to do so!
He's sure that if he makes enough mayhem, Drakath will be sure to choose him as the next ChaosLord. If you value Stratos' safety and sanity, you'll do everything in your power to stop him!
Grand Gear in a Royal Wedding Shop
Earlier today, Prince William of Wales married the love of his life, Kate Middleton in Westminster Abbey. We wanted to celebrate the joyous occasion with the happy couple, but we have a release to do! So instead, we've released a shop full of wedding wear that's fit for a Prince or Princess!
It's stocked with awesome armors, top-notch top-hats (including the color-custom ULTRAHAT) and millinery masterpieces!
HeroSmash Beta Launch Shop is Live
To celebrate the Beta release of HeroSmash to ALL players, yesterday we released a shop full of smashin' gear and heroic items! So whether you're a villain at heart or a hero all the time, make sure to peruse the epic weapons and helms we've made for you!
* Positive and Negative Plazmatron Guns
* Elephant Head and Prismatic Balloon Head helms
* Aqua Warrior and Aqua Scout helms
* And more!
Player Suggestions to Savor
You keep coming up with great ideas, so we keep Flashing them! We've got some awesome content updates to our Player Suggestion shop, so be sure to check them out! You'll find armors and weapons aplenty!
Most of the team is either heading to or at the Relay for Life event already, so we're going to roll this out, pack up, and go do our part for an awesome cause! Enjoy the release, and we'll see you on Monday!

A New Villain Takes to the Skies
The Member-only Skyguard storyline starts this week!
The Skyguard are King Alteon's elite aero-martial corps, patrolling the skies and keeping the land clear of do-baders. (Like do-gooders, but... evil.) But what happens when a rogue citizen turns on their country and King? What happens when vendettas grow out of control, when all they see in the forces of good are a means to their own twisted end? You'll find out!
Members are invited to journey to the Skyguard Academy this weekend to begin an all-new storyline* full of madness, mayhem, and maybe a little misdirection. Or not. You'll have to play to see! But whatever you expect is going to happen, think again, because the twists and turns in this tale will take you on a ride across Lore and into the depths of a tortured mind!
* Storyline will be updated one week a month to let us release other awesome content, too!
Player Suggestion Shop Update!
AQWorlds is YOUR game, and that's why we keep putting your art into it! (That, and because you guys have amazing ideas that inspire our artists to even greater feats of Flash-tastic experimentation.) Be sure to check out the new items that will go live in the Shop this Friday; here are samples of three excellent items to equip-
The Heartless Cross armor, Banisher Armor, and Tyrant Queen's Suppression Daggers
HeroSmash goes live this Thursday, April 28th, and to celebrate, we're offering a shop full of villainous gear and all the heroic items a good guy could want, and it's all based on the art of HeroSmash! So grab your gold and clutch your ACs, because this gear is SMASHIN'! (That's a good thing.) PS - On Thursday, the Panda Cannon will be moved to some mysterious place in-game. Happy hunting!
Windsor Wedding Win!
Here at Artix Entertainment, we LOVE love, and what better way to say "Grats" to Prince William of Wales and his fiancee, Kate Middleton, than to offer them a shop full of gnarly nuptial gear? So, whether you're a fan of royal weddings or just like to grab up the rare items that celebrate them, this shop's for you! (And if you happen to take tea with the royal couple, why not introduce them to AQW? It's not every Prince who gets personal gear in this game!)
We've got a rockin' week planned, now all that remains is to get it done! See you on the forums, Twitter, and Facebook!
