@Warmonger DragonJax You're very welcome and do not worry. I'll design the weapons at some point in the future if I don't have a lot to do. Anything can happen, man. :)

@Fionnes Thank you so much, miss. I've come a long way since I first started and I always showcase my progress whenever I redesign an old piece. It's always a perfect time to relax and reminisce. :)

Monstrous Pumpkin Patch

I planted a patch of pumpkins and carved a couple of jack o'lanterns. Suddenly, Korin's face appears on a third one under mysterious circumstances, smiling even after Croft's fated return to Apsaydaaun. How did his face materialize and why? Could it be that an overlord fiend with vampiric powers carved it there to keep an eye on Croft until the next year approaches? If he and Korin are indeed in cahoots, what mischief are they planning that could jeopardize the Cauldron Sisters' reputation as famed confectioners? Only next year will tell. Until then, I'm glad that after an entire week of planting that went awry, I finally designed the pumpkins to my satisfaction. It turns out that having a green thin is easier said than done for this pyromancer. I'm better off hitting the books anyway. :P I hope you all like the belated pumpkin patch.

Vengeful Gourd's Twinkle
While smiles are known to express joy and passion, this one can disguise this jack o' lantern's intent as it takes a liking to you not as a companion, but as one to toy with. Beware its smirk and whatever you do, leave it sheathed on Mogloween night.

It took me about a week and a half to sketch and vector this mace that was inspired from AQ3D's Smashing Pumpkin because I was stumped for a few days and as I said earlier, it came to show that I don't have much of a green thumb. The rest of the weapon's design was fortunately easier for me mostly because I had more practice working with weaponry compared to other objects, however, I still sketch and it's been key advice to me from Charfade to always do so before most, if not all, vectoring takes place. At least, that's what I believe based on my personal experience. *thinks of the Raging Tide of Oceanus and Volt Conductor swords as examples* I'd like to thank the talented and insightful Hollow for his advice that allowed me to create a further distinction in my version of the mace from the original Smashing Pumpkin. What I hope to take out of the design process this time is that I can use this advice to study where one would hold onto a weapon in any shape or size when arming him or herself for battle.

Mallet of The Righteous
A sledgehammer made of refined wood that came from a tree in Doomwood devoid of leaves and stone in southern Greenguard that is strong enough to split metal in two. Don't be fooled by the gourd revealed inside the wood for its magic is more than meets the eye.

After I remade AQ3D's Smashing Pumpkin in 2D, I decided to recycle the weapon and recolored the bottom blade and its handle. I then recolored the pumpkin yellow because Thankstaking is around the corner and the color is sometimes associated with autumn. Some foliage on trees do gradually shift from green to yellow. What sets the Mallet of the Righteous apart from the Vengeful Gourd's Twinkle is the wooden head and the dark chartreuse blade on top of it. While working with wooden textures is nothing new to me, it was my first time designing texture on refined wood with Flash, which took me another five days and I'm glad it turned out to be pretty nice from a distance. I'm at a loss regarding what type of wood I prefer since its texture can vary depending on the type, but there's always room for improvement in that area. ;) The Mallet of the Righteous is my take on Amelia's Mallet, but it heavily contrasts to the original version because the head is more uneven, the handle is made of stone, the grip has a different texture, there are blades placed at the bottom and top of the weapon, the metallic layer in between the grip and the bottom blade retains jagged edges, and last but not least, clicking on the light orange button reveals the glowing yellow gourd in the place of the wooden head. The differences are drastic because I took a naturalistic approach on the design process and sought out ideas on how to set the weapon apart from what it was based on. Its backstory also differs from its original counterpart. While Hollow forged the mighty mallet for his daughter in the AdventureQuest timeline, I believe that in the DragonFable timeline that Amelia herself forged the mallet out of grief during Occavatra's, Irene's, Europa's, and Fortitudo's journey into the underworld to rescue her father that took place shortly after Jaania froze the Hero, Warlic, and Xan in self-healing ice at the end of Book 2. She vowed to use her mallet to defend her family and home alongside her father since then, hence the name of the weapon. I hope you guys like it and I'd like to thank Gabriel Castro for his helpful feedback on the weapon's design. :)

Mogloween Storybook Collector's Edition Volume 2

This copy of the Mogloween Storybook Collector's Edition was distributed to a hooded nature-based sorcerer attired in robes of white by Vincent, Jenna, and Fortitudo during their travels around Lore to search for their companions who were captured by the Rose not long before the Hero had been thawed. The young sorcerer was pleased to acquire such a book during a perilous journey of his own for he felt that the guidance offered in the mystical book on the Cauldron Sisters' tales would light the way to a stronger and enlightened peace of mind. Accompanied in this copy are vines wrapped around the pedestal, several skulls scattered the area, cobwebs growing behind the scenery, a stash of weapons stored in a cauldron who was once human, and a pumpkin carved with an eerie face that had not been spotted since the Reset. What is the significance of its appearance and why has it materialized onto Lore once more? This innocent-looking jack o' lantern might be hiding a dark but strange secret long-thought to be lost forever.

Numbing Blunt Sword of Hypothermia
A dangerous weapon capable of producing ice crystals at touch, its user can freeze the heart of its target in the blink of an eye or worse, cause it to stop beating for good.

This weapon, alongside its staff and dagger variations, were given to select warriors, mages, and rogues with undying devotion to the Rose by Archmagus Jaania as a thanks for their support and upon being assimilated into a recently founded squadron of knights known as the Rose Inquisition whose duty is to bring dissidents into questioning by the group's leader. He was personally appointed by Jaania for the individual was fair, understanding, and lacks personal bias because his heart had been frozen to the core moments after he lost his deeply beloved to Nicodemus. Fortunately, those who are brought into questioning are oftentimes let go under the condition where they swear loyalty to the Kingdom of Greenguard and promise to cease advocating against the Rose. Those that break their promises, lie during questioning, or fail the entire interrogation would be subject to getting a Numbing Blunt Weapon of Hypotermia pointed at their hearts to freeze them in hopes that their emotions would evaporate enough for them to be reduced to cynical distant versions of their former selves. Their fates remain unknown afterwards. Not long after Occavatra and his friends began to fight against the Rose, one Rose Inquisitor Knight attempted to apprehend Europa while she was out on a night stroll outside of Falconreach alone, but she surpassed the knight and used his sword against him not long after she salvaged it in order to save her own life. Europa removed the rose emblems from the Numbing Blunt Sword and replaced them with some of the diamonds she cherished growing up. Since then, it became her secondary weapon. Aware of its potentially fatal power, Europa vowed to only use it in life-threatening situations and battles. Since the failed attempt to arrest the little girl, the squadron was temporarily disbanded for an undetermined period of time, but it wasn't until after the Magesterium's attempted siege on Swordhaven's Castle during its gala that Jaania revived the group. This time, it is not just dissidents, anti-Rose activists, and rebels that were targeted by the Rose Inquisition, but also inhabitants of Dragonia with even the slightest Tkaaine descent. The reason is that their leader and likely Jaania herself holds a deep-seated agonizing fear that they might be spies that tipped off the Magesterium to attack the castle that fateful night. While the members of the Inquisition and their leader remained patient and polite enough to release most of their suspects once found innocent, some members have slowly begun to slip under Akanthus's shadow while taking their ice crystal-producing weaponry with them in the process...

It's been a while since I made a sword during my busy schedule in late November into December and I had to refresh my memory a little bit. This was more of an experimental sword that I drew in which I attemped to incorporate Nulgath's style into it after Void, a fellow AQW moderator, suggested to me to give it a try. The end result wasn't what I expected it to be so I ended up having to improvise on the sword's guard and handle. After a fixer upper yesterday morning, I was ultimately satisfied with how the sword turned out in the end of the design process. The next time I experiment with Nulgath's style, I would rather collaborate with someone else and take my time studying the weaponry textures seen in Oversoul.
