History of the Armor of Awe
In the original AdventureQuest, the Armor of Awe was first worn by King Awethur; after he turned evil, the guardians of the old kingdoms trapped him in a tomb, then broke his weapon, the Blade of Awe and had hidden the pieces.
In DragonFable, the Armor of Awe has not yet been found, but Valencia and the Hero work with Trey Surehunter to find the Blade of Awe during the Earth Orb Saga. Once they do, some pretty wicked events take place (you should play them here!). Ultimately, they find and BREAK the Blade of Awe, mirroring the actions in AdventureQuest, their alternate timeline.
Dage the Evil, our lead item artist, has been a fan of the original AdventureQuest for years, and is still really inspired by the art and stories from those early years. He's created an updated look for the Armor of Awe in AQWorlds so that all of you can enjoy it, too!
