Socking it to ya on Friday
So Long, Socks!
Tomorrow I will also be leaving Battleon and taking my sock items with me. You guys also seemed to enjoy this shop so we will probably be bringing this one back near year too but THESE items will NOT be back.
Help fight the battle against missing and forgotten left socks by grabbing one of these rares before they vanish.
FRIDAY: ACTION FIGURES & AQW ZOMBIES!
Friday will be one of the single most exciting days in AE History! Our very first Action Figures go on sale at HeroMart!
Some players are already letting us know that they have already got the action figures from their local Toys R Us locations and we're hearing nothing but good things about the two classes that come with the toys.
For a skills breakdown of DoomKnight Overlord and Paladin High Lord, click here.
I'm also hearing that people are having a LOT of fun with the new Trap Door function that we built into the special Castles that comes with the Action figures. Just target someone in your house and click the big reed button. They find themselves in your dungeon and there is NOT ESCAPE (unless you /join somewhere else).
A couple of people have even said that the 5 Special Cards that exapand your Battleon Battle Card Games have made the card game even MORE fun, if that is possible.
Friday, everyone gets a crack at these limited edition action figures from HeroMart! We have quite a few but there IS a fixed number and we don't plan on making more of these figures and there are even fewer Limited Edition Black figures.
Friday also marks the end of DoomWood II and the beginning of AQW Zombies.
Not sayin' any more about that.

Missing Left Sock Day
It Is A Tragedy That Touches All Of Our Lives
So many have gone missing and never heard from again. We search everywhere but the longer they stay missing the more people give up hope. Eventually, the victims just move on with their lives and learn to deal with their loss in their own way.
That's right. I'm talking about Left Socks.
May 9th is Missing Left Sock Day. A day set aside from our normal work-a-day lives to bow our heads and remember not just the left socks that we have lost but those that everyone has lost. It affords us the opportunity to come together as a community and say, in one voice, "You will be remembered".
To increase awareness of this all-too-common tragedy that touches everyone in one way or another we have assembled a small treasure trove of sock themed items.
Take whatever you like, because every time someone sees a sock-bladed sword or an adorable Missing Left Sock Dragon they will be forced to confront this issue. It's time to stop running from our feelings and our dryer-portals. It's time to face the facts.
Those socks may be gone forever but you have NOT been abandoned. All you have to do is reach out to a fellow player and we can all begin healing. Start a conversation about socks. Let someone know that you understand how it feels to have one cold foot because maybe the warmth of your understanding smile is all that they really need.
This just got real. Sock it to them and Battle On!
Friday: DoomWood and Nulgath!
THIS Friday we will be continuing Artix's increasingly insane DoomWood II storyline and we will also say goodbye to Dage's Dark Caster Shop as he returns to Shadowfall to prepare for war.
But what about Nulgath? The creature that was once semi-human before his monstrous form erupted from that shell and revealed his true evil self to us. Is he still the real master of evil or has be been secluded in the shadows of his cave for too long?
Friday, Nulgath arrives in Battleon with his OWN host of wares.
A special armor set will be sold tying in to his new project, Oversoul! There will also be a number of helms and capes which you can purchase to show your loyalty to and support for him.
It's starting to look like war in unavoidable but what will happen to Lore if these two amazingly powerful, evil creatures clash? One thing is certain... one of them will rise and the other will fall.
This war will change the face of Lore. If you are Evil, who will you side with? If you are Good, who will you fight to defeat? If you are unaligned then why are you even reading this? Get back in the game and pick a side.
