AQWorlds is a game built by design, and sometimes, you have to take notes on it. Here you will find an archive of the past Design Notes posts, including when they were made and what they were about. Tired of looking for a specific Design Notes you swear exists, but can't remember when it was made? Your search ends here.

2008

Due to the way archiving of past Design Notes posts was handled, each month of the 2008 Design Notes is simply a single link. Therefore, each individual post cannot be linked. Please use the link at the beginning of each month to view that month's posts. Additionally, some posts are undated; I have placed these in "chronological" order within the month, but under the Undated date rather than a numerical date.
