Talk Like a Pirate Day is Wednesday
Let's see whether I can quote Practel without breaking the page margins the way I usually do... hm - how about a different color for the text instead of an indent...
This week in MQ is the return of TLaPD! To start the Talk Like a Pirate Day event, head over to the main part of Soluna City! For players who have completed last year's TLaPD event and are looking for something new, there is a NEW (very awesome) head weapon which will be available for you. This head is specially recolored with an actual attack animation, along with actual attack damage. Check out the screenshot below!
"Yarr me matties, I be stormin ye 7 seas!"
VERY special thanks to Jemini, who recolored both the awesome new head weapon and the newSepulchure of Doom Mecha (which is already available via the Stranger in Soluna City East). It seems like tons of people love the new coloring, and hopefully you all love the new head as much as I do!

Last week I made a Dragon*Con Recap Design Notes post, but forgot to mention 2 very special players. These players have been long time fans of the games, and genuinely care about us and the game as a whole. The first player - ACW. ACW is now a very close friend of mine, and also Maegwyn's, and it was a pleasure and honor to finally meet the player that has kept us company on twitter, in-game, and over every other plane of existence for these past several months. He hiked out all the way to Dragon*Con just to see us, and has left a genuinely great impression on all of us.
The second player - Cody486. Cody486 is a very awesome player who also visited us at Dragon*Con. Unfortunately, I did not have the pleasure of meeting him, but immediatly following the 'con, his name was brought up among several of the staff (for all the games.) He is a kind, genuine player that really brightened the staff's day, and not only that, he is also Maegwyn's birthday twin!
It was a pleasure to meet ACW, and I hope to officially meet you next year, Cody!
There were a ton more awesome players, but unfortunately we can't list everyone right now, but it was a pleasure to see all of you!
Thanks, Practel! (Did that work with the text color change ok?)
Just wanted to add this: I know that a long-time forum member, Stephen Nix, is one who I ran into at the pizza party, I *think* at 'Con for the first time - and then some people I got to hang out with a bit in years past also were back but as usual, my time is super-limited so hunting down people's game or forum or twitter names isn't happening today yet again... it was definitely great to see all of you!
Arrr - belay this! The decks need swabbin' as the pongo is gettin' a bit reeky! 'Til Wednesday, mateys! =Mae
