Battle on, Daimyo!

Tribute to the immortal battle puppy
It is with deep sadness that I write to tell you that during the night, the real life Daimyo, my faithful companion of over 15 years, has left our world. The veterinarian said that his heart was just too big… which was true both figuratively and literally. If you did not know, he was with me when I wrote the first line of code for the original AdventureQuest. He was the inspiration for Daimyo, the Undead Slaying Pomeranian, who appears in many of our video games-- where he will live on forever, as an iconic symbol of hope, loyalty, and cuteness.

Daimyo’s Birthday
It is our tradition, that every year on Daimyo’s birthday, we release a different version of him as an in-game pet. This year, on his birthday of June 1st, we will do something special. If you would like to show your respect to the real life version of this legendary video gaming puppy, you can like this Facebook post, or favorite this Twitter post. If you would like to share any fan art of Daimyo, please post it to those links.

This is the only time I have ever cried writing a design notes post. Much love to you all.

Sad Arf ='(

I feel Artix's pain. I've recently lost a beloved member of my family last October 3rd.

This was the first year where she wasn't able to celebrate her birthday on March 17.

I miss you, Matilda.

@Iron Volvametal:

I know right? I just lost a family member myself last month. 2017 is just as bad as 2016.

Never thought about Daimyo dying before. He seemed like an integral part of the community. Rest in peace, little guy, and I hope you feel better, Adam.

While I know nothing about having a pet, I do understand a little about loss. Others can say everything will be alright but that's a lie. It's horrible when you lose someone special. But, as sad as loss is, it's an inevitable thing we'll all eventually have to experience. Can't say much else other than sorry for your loss. But, as long as you hold on to the memories, whether they be good or bad, those we lose aren't truly gone.

Goodbye Daimyo. You may have left this world, but Legion Daimyo remains in my inventory for years to come.

As a pet owner I know how sad Artix must be feeling right now, I would say it gets easier to deal with and that is kind of true, but we miss our furry buddies everyday afterwards.
I hope you feel better soon Artix and may Daimyo have fun running around up above us.:)

I'm what you'd empathetic. I swear I'm sobbing right now. Like I'm channeling Artix's sadness.

Honestly, it really sucks. I know exactly how Artix is feeling right now. It sucks bad and it'll suck for good while.I remember when my girl passed away in her sleep about 7 months ago and I still get down when I think about her.

However, time heals all wounds. I know it sound super cliche to say it, but it really does. Daimyo got the best and most exciting life a dog could ever have and those 15 years everyone had with him were ones filled with love and fun. He's happily chasing the biggest treats (and undead) in doggie Valhalla right about now.

Rest in Peace, Daimyo, and Battle On!

As a pet owner I know Artix pain
After I saw the original tweet I had a gut feeling he wasn't going to make it...
It's sad to see such a icon gone
May he live on in the games from aq to aq3d

Well that's sad I have a feeling I'm also going to be saying goodbye to my little furry friend this year. I'm not sure if Artix's kids are old enough to understand what's happened, but that's pretty rough even on an adult. My thoughts are with you Artix and family.

Man, I knew something was up when Artix was playing AQW and AQ3D with Daimyo beside him.
RIP Daimyo. He was a good boy.

RIP Daimyo, hope you rest well.

If I may ask, what complications do an enlarged heart cause to a dog?
