Legendary Vampire

Hi everyone, Shadow here! I'm the newest recruit for the AQW Guides forum. You may have seen me around on the AQW Wiki before, or perhaps in-game. Regardless, now is the time to get to know me!

Before the questions begin, a few quick rules:

  1. The =AE= Comprehensive Forum Rules apply, as always.
  2. There is no limit to the amount of questions you can ask, or how many times you can post per page. Go wild!
  3. I reserve the right to ignore or remove any questions that I deem too personal.

If you're not sure how this works, feel free to check out the MtAK archives.

I will be editing in this color.

Have fun!

Goober Goober Goober

Nearly forgot how forum code works.
I think that means you should visit more!

How did someone annoying as you became an AK? ._.
I'm going to play a game where I ask you rhetorical questions instead of answering yours. Here's the first one: If your friend jumped off the bridge would you do it too?

*coats the big goober in a layer of purple*
Gah, I just cleaned this suit after Tendou did that!

Can you be less annoying? ._.
Is the Pope Catholic?

Do you like my doggle?
If an African elephant comes to America, is it an African-American elephant?

Can you keep him?
Do hummingbirds hum because they don't know the words?

Can you answer the list of annoying questions he has? :D
Isn't this thread all about answering questions? Just sayin'...

I can't imagine what it will be like without James around as much ;-;
I know, right! But of course, taking the necessary time to dedicate to studies is important. I wish him all the best.

You can be a lot worse than U._.U.
This one isn't even a question!


U._.U and Shadow are like motorcycles, reckless and wild.

Neither is this!

This is all I ask, be less annoying. The 6 of you make me cry >.<
Why do overlook and oversee mean opposite things?

So many 5D's in this color. Can't duel either :c
Indeed. Also, thanks for adding my color codes to this. :)

Be less annoying. LESS
Why is it called 'after dark', when it is really after light?

Final thing, congrats on being an AK :D
Thanks! I hope you've enjoyed this instalment of Meet the Apus.

Which Power Ranger is your favorite?
I remember watching Power Rangers as a child, but I don't really recall it well enough to pick a favourite.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how 11 are you?

Why does this Apus person hate dislike you?
Haha, Apus and I are close friends and fellow AQWWiki Moderators. I guess you could say I get a kick out of bugging her.

I wish you were my dad
I wish you were my son.

I don't have any questions for you since I generally suck at making them up.
That's alright, thanks for stopping by anyway!

Congrats again on being an AK, and good luck!
Thank you! *bows*

Howdy fellow creature of the dark!
Hey Shadowhunt! Pls don't hunt me

First off, congratulations! You do a lot for the game and it's great to see people like you helping out the community even further with your AKship.
*blushes* Aww, thank you!

Now for some questions!

Would you say darkness is an absence of light, or is light and absence of darkness? O_O
I prefer to think of it as the latter.

How did you get into AE games, and what made you want to play AQW when it came out?
A childhood friend of mine introduced me to AdventureQuest waaaaay back in 2006. I've been playing AE games ever since then! When AQW was first announced, my mind was blown at the idea of a multiplayer AE game, since at the time everything was singleplayer. And I've been hooked on it since the first day of alpha testing. :)

If you're an AK of the Guides section, does that mean you have full proficiency with a map and compass?
Why yes, of course! But for some reason I can only do it in AQW...

Did you know that 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance?
Eheh, I had to google this one since I didn't get the reference. I don't even have a car anyway. :p

That's all for now! Again, congratulations, you're a really helpful person and it's great to see you given some responsibilities I'm sure you'll fulfill extraordinarily.
Thanks, I really appreciate it. :)

Hi Shadow! :)
Hey Ness!

Why do you like of the vampires?
I've always been fascinated by the idea of vampires since I was little. And since AQW is so based around roleplaying, I figured why not take the opportunity to play as a Vampire!

What do you like to do? Play AQW or stay in the Wiki?
Both! But lately with all my time commitments I don't get a chance to actually play the game that often.

Wait..................................................................................! Now you can continue reading the other questions :) :) :)
*waited patiently*

Why the name "Shadow"? Inspiration?
I don't really have a good story for this one. Years ago when I made my AQ account I chose the name Shadow since it sounded cool. I was lucky enough to get the name Shadow in AQW as well and have been using it where possible.

Let's test your Portuguese: Você gosta de assistir Two and a Half Man e The Walking Dead?
My flatmates watch TWD and so I occasionally watch it with them but that's about it.

So, this is it! Congrats on becoming an AK and good lucky with your Guides. See you on Wiki.
Thanks! See you!

ArchKnight AQWorlds

As promised, I have before you 100 questions!
Oh my, you weren't kidding! I'm gonna have to come back to this later. Let's do this!

1) Favourite Colour?
Oooh. I don't really have a favourite colour, since as an artist I appreciate and work with all colours.

2) Favourite game?
My favourite childhood game is probably Pokemon Emerald, and for current day I think I'll go with Vanquish.

3) Favourite animal?
Cats cats cats cats cats

4) Least Favourite animal?
Do insects count as animals? If so, then insects. Yeah. All of them.

5) Lets just skip five for no reason.

6) What is the meaning of life?
To achieve the maximum possible amount of marshmallows stuffed into ones mouth.

7) :o

8) What academic subjects interest you the most?
I'm not really an academic person, I'm more drawn to creative subjects. But if I had to pick, I've always found history really interesting.

9) Where do you live? .
New Zealand.

10) What, if anything, have you learned today?
Nothing yet unfortunately.

11) What do you enjoy eating most?
Anything that I've cooked myself, it's always so much more rewarding when homemade.

12) What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Earning a national scholarship for graphic design.

13) When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always struggled with this question when I was a kid, and even now I sometimes do!

14) If you could visit any country in the world, where would you go, and why?
Japan. I studied Japanese all throughout high school, and the culture and history of the country is so fascinating to me.

15) Who are some people you’d like to meet someday?
It would be interesting to know politicians on a more personal level, see what makes them tick.

16) If you could go back in history, who would you like to meet?
Da Vinci. Arguably the most known example of a renaissance man, there is so much I could learn from him.

17) What’s the stupidest thing you’ve ever done?
Ahh... I don't think I can say it here. :p

18) :o

19) If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?
Probably mid-20s. Mature enough, but also young enough to be able to do anything.

20) Favourite AE game?
AQW, simply because that's the only one I play nowadays. I used to be really into DF though, I enjoyed that a lot.

21) I'm struggling here...
Muahaha, you're only just 1/5 of the way!

22) *searches for some more questions*
Oh no.

24) Is it worse to fail at something or never attempt it in the first place?
Never attempt it in the first place. How can you learn if you never try?

25) Where is the line between insanity and creativity?
It's hard to say, I think it's different for every person.

26) What colour is a mirror?
Ahh, I remember learning this long ago. A perfect mirror is white, I think?

27) Are you sure?
No, haha.

28) What is infinity?
The quality of being infinite.

29) Did you notice I skipped question number 23?
I did not. You sneak!

30) What were you doing half an hour ago?

31) Why is there something rather than nothing?

32) Should I stop now or keep going?
Well it doesn't matter what I say here since I know you've asked 100 anyway.

33) I'm carrying on anyway :p
Of course.

34) What colour are your shackles?
I asked for them to be pitch black but Zyrain went ahead and made them cyan like everything else he touches.

35) :)

36) Do you play an instrument?
I wish, but I don't have any musical talent in me whatsoever.

37) Speak any languages besides English?
Somewhat fluent in Japanese.

38) Dogs or Cats?

39) Favourite sport?
Karate, which I have been practising for about 10 years now.

40) What rhymes with Silver?
What rhymes with Orange?

41) Do you like toast?

42) If you do what do you like on it?
Homemade jam. Mmmmm.

43) Did you know if you placed a piece of bread on the floor, and had someone else place a bit of bread on the ground on the exact opposite side of the planet, you would technically have an 'Earth Sandwich'.
Mind = blown. Now I just need to find someone on the exact opposite of me.

44) Did you realise that that wasn't technical because nothing technological was involved?
I think the definition of technical has evolved to no longer include the word technological.

45) Why can we hear around corners but can't see around them?
Because our eyes can't pick up vibrations in the air?

46) Favourite film?
Anything by Tarantino.

47) 47. Meh...
Running out of steam?

48) Do you like waffles?
I've never really had them.

49) Do you know why I asked?

50) No, neither do I.
Oh. Pfft.

51) Why is the sky blue?
[insert science-y answer here]

52) Is black the darkest colour?
Black isn't a colour, it's an absence of it.

53) Why is glass see-through?
I dunno.

54) I don't like 54.
This isn't a question.

55) Do you like cookies?

56) Well weather you like them or not, take a cookie. *hands Shadow a cookie*

57) Bath or Shower?

58) Why?
Easier and quicker.

59) Xbox 1 or PS4? Or neither?
I don't own either of the current generation consoles, but I do have an Xbox 360.

60) Only 40 more to go!

61) Square root of -1?

62) :o
o: (This is the third time you've done that)

63) :l

64) Do you like Chicken?
Yes. :D

65) What came first, the chicken or the egg?

66) Do you like reading?
I don't do a lot of reading. Not that I don't like it, I just never get around to it.

67) Play an instrument?
You've already asked this!

68) ...wait :o
o: o: o:

69) Herp or Derp?

74) Can germs catch germs?
Asking all the important questions here, I see.

75) Do cold drinks cool you down?
Um, yes?

76) Why am I asking you questions?
An ancient ritual that dates far beyond our time. The old ones call it... "Meet the ArchKnight".

77) Why are they called apartments when they're all stuck together?
I assume it derives from another language where it actually makes more sense.

78) Why do banks leave both doors open but they chain the pens to the counter?
Because people will steal pens more often than doors.

79) Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are dead?
Because if you press it reeaaaaaally hard, you might push some more power into 'em!

80) Why do you believe it when someone tells you there are four billion stars, but you always check when you see the wet paint sign?
I tried to count all the stars once. I lost count at three billion and something.

81) Why do they call it a building when it's already built?
Why isn't phonetic spelled the way it sounds?

82) Do you ever walk to the fridge and hope something just magically appears for you to eat?
Yes. :(

83) Why is it called rush hour when you don't move?
Because everyone is rushing to get somewhere.

84) Almost there...

85) Having fun Being an ArchKnight?
Sure, it's pretty fun so far.


87) Why is dirt brown?
It's not all brown. Just... most of it.

88) Why does anything have colour?
Because life would be boring in complete greyscale.

89) Where is the end of a circle?
My brain is starting to hurt from all of these.

90) Is the 3 second rule true?
It better be! Otherwise... uh oh.

91) Why do we have two eyes?
Because three eyes just looks weird.

92) What is 1+1?
3. Wait....

A gin and tonic is always nice.

94) Did you realise you've already answered that?
No I haven't!

95) Almost done now!

96) Do didn't actually answer Q93 before Q93, but I bet you went to check anyway. :p
I didn't check, I trust my memory. :D

97) Black or White?

98) Mac or PC?
Mac, I am writing this from one.

99) One more to go...
The light at the end of the tunnel is near!

100) Guess How long it took me to write this up.
Far too long! Haha.

Hope you had fun answering this. In all seriousness though congrats and good luck once again!

Advocator of Wills

Congratulations on a well-deserved AK position in the Guides subforum, Shadow.
Thank you Jorath, much appreciated. :)

I don't have many questions, but what did you think when you first read your PMs about becoming an AK?
I was quite surprised to be honest, I wasn't really expecting to be asked.

What would be your one favorite and least favorite game storyline, to date?
I haven't managed to catch up on all of DragonFable yet, but from when I used to play it one of my fondest memories was the amazing storytelling. But for the sake of this question, I will answer with AQW storylines since I know this game better. I really liked the end of the Chaos finale, since it was the culmination of nearly six years of work from the AQW team, and so to finally see it through to the end was great. I don't really have a least favourite, but there have been quite a few storylines that have been cut short and finished early, or haven't been completed at all, which I find a shame since a lot of them have good potential.

Also, avoid any and all direct contact with purple.
Hehe, this isn't the first time I've been advised this.

That would be everything I have. Welcome aboard a stream of guides, and best of luck!
Thanks again! See you around!

*/me wanders here* Eh.. I might not have any idea what I'm going, but greetings and congratulations!
Heya, and thanks! :)

I guess... I share music on these threads? That's what I've done the few times I did this xD
Sure, that's fine!

I don't really know your music preferences, but I hope you like some of these :D
Porter Robinson - Lionhearted [Electro.. pop?... ish]
Heh, I've heard this one before, I have the Worlds album which this is a part of. Good stuff!

Joe Hisaishi - The Legend of Ashitaka (part of the soundtrack of Mononoke Hime) [Orchestral]
Beautiful. Really makes me want to re-watch Princess Mononoke, which is definitely one of my favourite Studio Ghibli films.

KOAN Sound & Asa - Tetsuo's Redemption [Melodic+ dubstep... I think]
I've also know this one, I have most of KOAN Sound's EPs. They have a really interesting style, huh?

Epica - Pirates of the Caribbean (Medley) [Symphonic... rock... stuff]
Ooh, sounds cool! More of a rock version of the PotC main theme (no surprise there :p).

Well... Have a good one, sayonara. *tips hat*

*fades out of purpleness*

Oh hai der Shadow!

I'm Zeldax, the Purple Moglin! You probably know me from the Image Request Thread
Yep, I've seen you around quite a bit in the AQW boards. :)

Congrats on the AKship!
Why thank you!

Now for some questions.
Yay, questions!

1. Favorite AE Game/s?
AQW is the only one I play nowadays, so I guess I'll go with that.

2. I know this is the AQW Forums, but favorite DF Class and/or Storyline?
As I've said earlier in this thread, I used to play DF a lot but that was many years ago (unrelated to the question but if you'd like to know why this is, I stopped playing all AE games for a few years and when I came back I only caught up on AQW. I've been meaning to get back into DF ever since but haven't got around to it). I stopped just before the Earth Orb quests IIRC, and so my favourite storyline was probably the Water Orb. As for classes, I don't really remember them too well but the DragonRider class and titan-sized fights were always a lot of fun.

3. Dooo yooouuu liiiike Pandas???

4. Favorite AQW Class?
In terms of rarity/looks, Vampire. In terms of gameplay/fun factor, Chunin and the Chrono classes.

5. Your opinion on Purple? (Not Chaos, 'cause Chaos sux)
I have no opinion. *is staying colour neutral*

Anyway that's all the questions I have! Congrats once again!
Thank you. c:

*pours a bucket of purple paint on Shadow*
*drowns in purple*

See you!

*fades back into purpleness*

How We Roll Winner

Heya Shadow!

Grats on becoming an Arch Knight!
Thanks! :D

You have one of the best usernames around xD
Hehe, thanks. I had a stroke of luck obtaining it in AQW.

How did you come up with your main look?
I first came up with it (excluding pet) way back in 2008. I wanted a vampire look and there wasn't a lot to choose from, so that's how I ended up with the class, wings and staff. I didn't really have a main pet until I earned the Primal Orb in 2010, I first started wearing that since it looked cool and I was proud of the work I put into getting it, and later found it also somewhat matched my set thematically.

Do you enjoy doing image requests?
I do enjoy helping people out, which is also why I help out on the Wiki and the AQW Guides section.

Also thanks for doing my image requests :D
No problem! :)

Well, out of "questions" now.
Alright, thanks for stopping by!

Hope to see you ingame
I'm sure we can arrange something if you drop me a line on Twitter. *points to forum signature*
