Aurelio Voltaire's The Black Labyrinth

Aurelio Voltaire Returns for an all-new Friday the 13th Event!

Friday the 13th has returned once again… but we don't have any horror movie villains or armies of the undead for you to tackle tonight. This weekend, Aurelio Voltaire returns with something incredibly special for you and our community of videogamers; he's got a new tale to tell, one near and dear to his heart. This weekend, log in and /join blackmazehub to begin an adventure inspired by his new album: "The Black Labyrinth!"

  • WHO: Gothic Musician Aurelio Voltaire, the AQWorlds Team + your fellow Heroes
  • WHAT: Battle through the Black Labyrinth, an adventure inspired by Aurelio Voltaire's newest album
  • WHERE:

/join blackmazehub and talk to Aurelio Voltaire in-game to begin your journey. But first, a message from our favorite Gothic Musician just for you: 

"Behind this door in particular is an introduction to a world near and dear to my heart. I worked alongside musicians who performed and composed with David Bowie to create the songs in my album; The Black Labyrinth. There's a story those songs tell, and I would love for you to have a glimpse of the people and places that come alive in this musical tale." - Aurelio Voltaire

Fantastical Reward Gear

After you complete tonight's event, talk to the mysteriously familiar-looking Valarian.  Complete his quest to collect Zenobia's Moglinberry Juice. You'll be able to trade it for dark and lovely new reward sets. 

Valarian's merge shop includes:

  • The Harvester armor
  • 3 Harvester set helms
  • 7 Harvester set weapons
  • Goblin King's Formalwear (regular and gender-reversed)
  • 2 Goblin King's helms
  • 1 L'il Dewdo pet

Battle the monsters in the Black Labryrinth to collect:

  • 2 Harvester set helms
  • 2 Goblin King set helms
  • Mogchita pet
  • The King Transformed pet
  • 3 Harvester set weapons
  • Mystical Glass Orb Mace + Dagger

Aurelio Voltaire Returns for Friday the 13th!

Friday the 13th and Aurelio Voltaire go together like Evil Armies of Undead and Horror Movies. He is legitimately one of the most creative people we know. He is the maker of music, films, books, comics, toys and... mayhem. He first appeared in AdventureQuest Worlds back in 2009, during our first-ever in-game Friday the 13th UNLIVE event! Since then, he's appeared in all of our Friday the 13th events, and this year he made his first appearance in AdventureQuest 3D's "Return to Skullpunch Island."

This weekend, battle your enemies to the beat of his Black Labyrinth tracks! The event features: "Song for a Goblin King," "Oubliette," "The King of Villains," and "Kill the Beast." Stay up to date with all his music, art, and news updates here and once you've finished the event, make sure you check out his Youtube series, "Gothic Homemaking with Aurelio Voltaire." 

While you battle, you can also stream all the tracks from the album here

On behalf of the entire AdventureQuest Worlds team, we want to thank Aurelio Voltaire for being a part of this special event!
