Little Dragon Reminders!
Just a quick reminder that the wonders of Dragon's Canyon will be closing down in a few hours!
Yasu will be closing down the event pretty quickly after 11:59 p.m. tonight, and I will announce our questing winners and details about the Super Speshul Egg tomorrow evening. :3
And as a last little gift, there was a suggestion to turn the adorable baby dragons into HA items, so you can now find those in the Event Shop until tomorrow night at 11:59 p.m.
Enjoy, and thanks for playing safely with dragons!

Castle Princess and Human Avatars
One of our friendlier Tavi dragons is now selling a pretty Castle Princess HA set in the Event Shop.
You can buy the items individually; there's a crown, scepter, dress, and hair.
The Castle Princess set cannot be found in any of the eggs, so if you want one or more pieces from this set, be sure to snag them from the shop! They'll be available through the end of the event.
11/17 UPDATE: The Castle Princess wearable images should now be working. :)
I also wanted to make a quick Human Avatar announcement!
As a heads up, Yasu is going to be working on the system some time tomorrow, so you may find that your HA is not working or not showing up. This is to be expected, and will be remedied as soon as possible. He's taking the system down to make a few fixes, since some of our new members cannot create HAs or are otherwise having problems with them, and we want to get that straightened out. :3

Dragon's Canyon Updates!
The dragons and I have some updates for you!
First, you might've noticed that a Top 20 Questers board has been added. Your quest level is determined by how many quests you complete, and rejecting a quest will not bump you down. So, if I do 100 quests but have rejected 5, I will be at quest level 100.
Note that the quest level is different from your location level. Currently, your location level in Dragon's Canyon can now not exceed level 14 to keep you from "mastering" the area, so that you can quest infinitely. Unfortunately, we can't display your current quest level, so you'll only be able to see it if you move up into the high score board.
The Tavi should still let you throw gems at him after every three quests you complete, and the most he will ask for is 480 gems.
Yasu and I have spent the past few days working on getting all of these kinks with the new script ironed out, so thank you SO much for your patience and continually testing things and reporting them in the glitches forum. The bugs were pretty widespread, but I know many of you have still been loving the event, especially since prizes are being given out instantly through the eggs. :3
We also didn't want to reset everyone's quest level since pretty much everyone encountered some sort of glitch, but we did expand the high score board from 10 to 20 people, and I'm happy to report that even people with consistent bug issues are on it. n_n High score winners will receive a special dragon trophy, SP, and a custom-related prize!
Second, a bunch of dragon items have been activated!
The Dragon Dagger and Flaming Dragon Dung are adventure weapons that give you various fire-related bonuses. See their descriptions for full details. The Fireball is an LBC/MBC-compatible breeding add-on that tells your artist to give you fire-colored offspring; note that this item does not give edits, it influences only the color palette.
These two mysterious eggs are now hatchable! The Much Specialer Egg will turn your active pet into one of 8 dragon-themed hybrids or rares at random, while the Not So Uncommon Egg will randomly turn your active pet into one of 5 more common dragon-themed colorations. In case you want to be surprised I won't post the list here, but you can check out the item description and/or the Aywapedia to get the full details!
Third, we've released a final batch of dragons into the canyon!
There are 10 new pets for you to collect. :3 Enjoy!
If you are the artist behind one or more of these incredible dragons, stay tuned for a payment update!
The Super Special Egg use will be revealed soon!
As you might've suspected, especially if you've been poking around the Item Database, this is a custom creator. We'll be revealing what it creates in a day or two as a final surprise, and you will also have a longer time to use the item than usual since we want to give Graymare a chance to heal. :)
Dragon's Canyon will be closing up on November 18th at 11:59 p.m. to give you a full 48 hours+ to quest, steal eggs, and fling poo. The best parts of Aywas, amirite?
Thanks again to needchocolatenow (#41056) for letting the dragons loose on us, and to all of you for your continued patience and support. Have fun!

The art gallery has been judged!
The theme was Hibernation and we received some adorable entries that made me want to crawl back into bed. Alas. XD
Here are our featured winners:
The current theme is Book Covers!
Time to design an Aywas-related book cover or book cover scene. :3 This can be a brand new book cover, or your rendering of an existing Aywas book item. You can use any medium you like, from digital to craft materials. You may also create a scene featuring a book cover, or multiples (like a library, or a pet reading, etc.). Have fun!
Official Aywas stock is permitted for this theme.

Private NaNoWriMo Subforum
The Private NaNo 2014 forum is now available!
If you don't want your work visible to the public, you can utilize this area.
Only you and staff will be able to see your threads, and we will happily remove them from the site upon request after the month is over and prizes have been handed out.
You must still follow the Instructions and can ask questions on the FAQ thread.
Thank you! :3

Dragons vs. Bugs!
Evening! :3 I just wanted to let everyone know that Yasu is working on a few glitches that have popped up in Dragon's Canyon.
- Fixed: If you couldn't turn in gems after completing 3 quests, 6 quests, etc., this should now work for you. This was not impacting everyone, but if you still have a problem with this, please report it in the Glitches forum.
- Being Investigated: Quest capping at Level 15 and the Grumpy Tavi not taking gems after you max out.
I will announce the event end date and details on the Top Questers contest when these issues are remedied, as we want to make sure you have enough time to enjoy Dragon's Canyon without pesky bugs. :3 Thanks for your patience as Yasu works out the kinks in this new set of scripts!

Skeleton Key Reminder
Don't forget to pick up a Skeleton Key from the Advent Calendar at any time on Wednesday, November 12th.
The Skeleton Key is an account-bound, one-use item.
Once you have a key, you can visit the Treasure Chest page here. Using the key to unlock a chest will grant you one random prize from a pool of Halloween goodies, including some exclusive pets, and if you're really lucky, maybe something extra shiny like a Glittering Rock or even a Design Ticket!
Again, as long as you have a Skeleton Key, you will be able to open a chest.
There are more than enough prizes for everyone because we are using a chance-based script, rather than putting in a fixed number of all items/pets, and your key can be used at any time. You'll probably get the most enjoyment out of your prize sooner rather than later, though!
If everything goes well, you might see a return of a similar feature during December for our winter holidays. :3 So I hope you enjoy!
(Please see below for news on Dragon's Canyon!)
