The Committed Video Is Coming
It's a real honor to type that. One-Eyed Doll is allowing us the honor of showing their video to you guys before it is officially released anywhere else ON EARTH. That's kind of a big deal.
It's a big deal for a few reasons. First, it's a big deal because I've actually seen the pre-release of the video and it's awesome. it does justice to the song which is also awesome.
The second reason that it's a big deal is that we get to help out some people that we really, honestly like. I don't know if you guys understand this but when we do these musical events, it's because WE like the bands. Voltaire, Jonathan Coulton, Paul & Storm, They Might Be Giants... these are all bands that a LOT of us really like. They don't pay us to get into the game. A lot of the time we don't even pay them. Often there is no money involved... just fun. It's an amazingly rare and super cool thing to be say that in this or any other industry.
This Friday you all get to see One-Eyed Doll's video for Committed before anyone else and the cool part is that you'll get to see it INSIDE THE INSANE ASYLUM! It will also be accompanied by the release of their album tailored especially for AE fans called "Something About a Dragon?".
The art team is working on a load of new Mogloweeny themed items for the event. Here's Solrac's Member Only Gloomcaster Set.
Some are cool, some are cute and some are downright terrifying for folks like Reddy who are big into the creep factor.
HeroMart Avalanche Of Awesome
This Friday HeroMart will be launching THREE new items, the Something About A Dragon CD, The Mogloween 2012 T-shirt and the AE 10th Anniversary T-Shirt. (Sorry in advance, D. We're going to make you go broke, I swear.)
Each of these items comes with a Character Page Badge, and AT LEAST 1 in-game item. The Mogloween Shirt comes with the NeverMore armor by Memet who just got...promoted?... from Player Support to AQW Artist...
The AE 10th Birthday Shirt comes with the AE Dragon Conqurer set (which I colored to match the DrAEgon items) in AQW and at least one more items from EACH other the games that participated in the EbilCorp Gameocide War...
And "Something About A Dragon?" comes with the Metal Sneevil Non-Member Pet and maybe some stuff in the other games. I'm not sure on that part.
And speaking of HeroMart, keep your eyes on our Twitter accounts for sneak peeks of the AE 2013 Calendar. The art by Diozz and Dage is amazing and it will come with the Exclusive TimeTracker Class. No Chronomancer this year!
United Nations Shop LIVE!
Today we released a little shop to honor United Nations Day. On October 24, 1945, the United Nations (U.N.) came into force when the five permanent members of the security council ratified the charter that had been drawn up earlier that year. These members were: France, the Republic of China, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and the United States.
You can argue about the effectiveness of the United Nations but the concept of uniting a world of many different religions, races and ideas under a banner of peace is something worth continuing to reach for.
ONE WEEK OF 4th UPHOLDER LEFT!
Next Wednesday is October 31st. In addition to being Mogloween it is ALSO the last day of the month and the last day that you can upgrade to become a 4th Upholder.
Don't miss this chance. UPGRADE NOW and become a 4th Upholder before this offer is gone forever!
I'M Not Going To Spell Check This Post
I'm really hungry and I want to go eat some dinner so I'm not going to spell check this. Don't bother letting me know what I missed on Twitter. Enjoy!
57 days until Just Another Day

Kimberly and ArcAttack
Shocking music video... literally!
Our friend, former-chaos lord, and Friday the 13th brain slime fighter, and One-Eyed Doll lead singer, Kimberly, made a guest appearence with ArcAttack on the last episode of TV's America's Got Talent. ArcAttack is a very cool band because they use two tesla coils to zap metal creating music. Here is a link to a video of it on youtube that Raviteja sent us through Twitter. Note, the episode and the voting is over, so please do not call in. The first time we met Kimberly ArcAttack was shooting lightning at her just like this (You may remember from that one DragonCon Post)... All I have to say is -- Brains. Daaa naaa naa naa naa naaa naaaa Battle On
The Chaos Lord of Arcangrove?
On the topic of Chaos Lords... this week... something truley maddening will appear in AdventureQuest Worlds. This is so unthinkable... and improbable... and dangerous.... that I would like to once again remind you that AQWorlds is not like other games. The story is growing under your feet. Being created from scratch by the team and your suggestions at the beginning of each week and released on Friday. Unlike other games it is possible for a Chaos Lord to actually win this game if we were to fail.... ANYTHING can happen! This week, you will also discover that ANYTHING can BECOME a Chaos Lord...
