In memory of Falerin

new rpg game release adventure quest

Dear Videogame community,

It is with deep sorrow that I write to inform you that the fan-favorite writer of the original AdventureQuest, Falerin, has passed away. Beloved for the stories he told, including the Carnax, Devourer, Dracopyre Legacy, and Fate of the Uncreated sagas, his stories entertained and touched the hearts of so many of those within our community.

Falerin passed away due to cardiac arrest last week on July 23rd, 2019 and is survived by his two daughters, wife Liliana (an Artix Entertainment AdventureGuide), and his father Eldron (who also wrote for the AdventureQuest team in the past).

We waited a few days before sharing this news because we reached out to the family to see if there was anything our studio or family could do to help. As you can imagine, the family is going through a difficult time right now.

If you would like to pay your respects to Falerin, we recommend you do one or more of the following:

  • Share your memories of your favorite stories and moments by posting on Twitter using the hashtag #Falerin. The family would love to know how his stories have impacted you.
  • If it’s been a while since you’ve logged into the original AdventureQuest, it might be fun to go play through some of his iconic adventures. The team will be putting up a special hub for you to access his most iconic events as well as a commemorative in-game item, the LoreMaster’s Tome.

I first met Falerin when he graciously offered for his IRC chat server, Caelestia, to be the official chat server for AdventureQuest. This was where all the originals gathered, from Oishii to Galanoth, from Mooncalled to Captain Rhubarb. We held our weekly launch nights there, which for the many players who did not play back in 2003, was when we live released new monsters and items every Tuesday night for players to help test in-game.

It was here that Falerin began writing for the team, and eventually becoming one of -- if not the -- most famous LoreMaster. Falerin loved to write, but he was also passionate about sharing his love of story-telling. He worked with the writers for our other teams as well as mentoring authors in our videogame community. He lead the “Legends & Lore” board on our forum, where writers and fans of Lore (and its lore) gathered. Falerin’s stories were released between 2003 and 2017. Behind the scenes, real-life Falerin worked as an educator with at-risk children and raised awareness for causes like the Suicide Prevention Foundation.

As we honor a fallen friend and remember the impact his words have had on our lives, I’d like to repost his answer to a question from a player in 2005:

Question: “If there was one thing in your life you could've done differently, what would it be?”
Falerin’s answer was, “I am honestly not being evasive when I say that regret is an errand in futility. I try to learn from every experience I have both good and bad. I have grown from every single one of them. Undoing even one of my past mistakes might have repercussions I could never foresee.”

2019 Surfboard Design Contest!

new rpg game release adventure quest

Ready to paddle out and make some radical art?

Summer is coming, and that means two things - one, SURF'S UP! And two, fresh board weapons are coming to Adventure Quest! We love seeing the creativity of the AE community, so we are holding a new Design-A-Board Contest. We'll take your ideas and turn them into works of KILLER (wave) art, dude! So hang onto your helms as you hang ten, and read on for the contest guidelines!

3 Grand Prize winners will be created and added into the game in June. One design each for Surfboard, Shortboard and Kneeboard weapons.

Prize Details

  1. Top 3 Grand Prize winners will get their design in game and 2000 Z-Tokens!

  2. Top 10 Winners Circle entries will get 1000 Z-Tokens!

  3. If you go Above and Beyond, we shall award you accordingly ;)

Contest Timeframe

The contest will range from Wednesday, May 1st until 10 AM EST on Wednesday, May 15th. The winners will be announced the following week on the AE Contests Twitter account.

Contest Rules

The rules and guidelines are pretty radical, but MUST be followed accordingly for your edible entry to be eligible. I repeat, in boldface and in red font, ‘cuz a lot of people miss this: YOU must follow EACH rule if you want your entry to be considered eligible.   

The easiest way to make sure your hard work gets judged: Read all of the rules before submitting your entry! 

  • Your entry must be made by you.
    Do not copy someone else’s hard work. That my friend is called cheating, and you will be disqualified for it.
  • Include your Account name and Character ID with your submission.
    This way we know whom we need to credit in the item description and where to send your z-tokens.
  • Your entry MUST be created in some sort of Artix Entertainment theme. 
    Your creation does not need to be limited to Adventure Quest - it can be from any AE games!
  • The screenshot of your entry should be of the Highest Quality, and as large as possible. 
    The more clear the picture, the better it will look, upping your chance at the Grand Prize! 
  • Post your submission @ the AE_Contests Twitter account using #AqSurfboardContest2019
    Uploading your photo to your Facebook and sending us a link does not allow us to see the photos. Also, if you upload your photo to your LOCKED image-sharing account, we cannot see it either. So make sure you send the image itself to the Twitter account linked above.
  • One entry per person
    One entry = Up to 3 designs total, one for surfboard/shortboard/kneeboard... so make sure you are happy with your submission!

Design Template

Follow this link for the board templates used in AdventureQuest. You do not need to use it, but you may find them helpful.

Good Luck!

We are really looking forward to seeing your creativity!

Notice of Data Breach

Data Security Incident: FIXED

What Happened

Two talented individuals found a vulnerability in our older game websites (specifically AdventureQuest, DragonFable, and MechQuest). We were notified of this on October 16th, 2018. Thankfully, they have worked diligently with us to fix these issues and protect our game network.

What Information Was Involved

Because we respect your privacy and the privacy of all our players, we are writing to let you know about this data security incident.  While we have no evidence of your data being leaked, it is possible that your personally identifiable information was accessed, which for our games is limited to your game account name, password, email address, and IP address.

What We Are Doing

The team investigated the vulnerability and took protective measures to ensure no other access was possible. Then, the vulnerability was patched, and the fix confirmed. We have notified all players who may have been affected via email and postings across our websites of the potential unauthorized access. 

In the days immediately following determination of the vulnerability, our programmers added additional protection to our network and accounts.

What You Can Do

While there is no evidence that your account has been tampered with, we urge you to change your password. Please use a unique password on every online service you use (seriously… this is so important on the internet now.)

While you are updating your password(s) to secure your account, be sure to download our new Artix Games Launcher. It is a far more secure way to play as you do not need the Flash Plugin or a web browser… and you can play all of our games in one place.

More Information

If you need any help with any of your Artix Entertainment video game accounts, please contact player support.

Battle on!

Artix Krieger
