A little bird told me

It told me many things
Like it's Monday again. I checked the Calendar and it is indeedMonday again. Guess that's why everyone showed up at the Lab today. And since it's Monday, we're trying to figure out what to release this week.

We will definitely have the Zorbak's Legion finale for you, so DragonLords should count on having that to do. And there will be a VERY (very very very) rare chance to get a baby dracolich pet to drop from the finale quest. So if you're VERY (very very very) patient, that is the way to go. If you'd really like a baby dracolich pet as soon as the release is ready on Friday, though, you can also buy one in Cysero's Superstore of Savings for Dragon Coins

What is the rest of the release, you ask? Good question! We are thinking that up RIGHT NOW. Geopetal is hopping from key to key typing out ideas. She is feeling better, and thanks all of you for the well wishes!

Rolith's also got a new Bloopers reel for you from his work on engine 9.0! From what he told us, what you're about to see shouldn't be possible!

That little bird also told me that there is a special shipment coming to Cysero's shop this Friday. He landed on Cysero's head with a note tied to his leg. After Cysero tried blowing the bird off (have you ever tried to blow onto the top of your head? It looks REALLY funny), I gently lifted the bird off and unfurled the message. It read:

To the Mad Weaponsmith of Falconreach:

I'd like to thank you for the candied breezes. They were delicious, though I still can't figure out how you managed to dunk wind in liquid sugar. But that is not why I am writing to you.

I wanted to tell you the story of Jova, my eagle. I was walking the Planes, as I do when I need time to think about orders from above, and I was viciously attacked by a reptilian creature of some sort. Before I could come to my own defense, Jova hurled herself at the creature's lone eye, claws extended and beak open, screaming in rage. She was glorious! I don't need to tell you that the creature is no more.

What I would like from you, though, is a set of weapons made to honor her, to share her story. I have no doubt that you will do her justice. I have sent these sketches, to show what I have in mind. (Note the swirling in the pink. Please include swirling mists in your construction.)

Thank you my friend,

So you can bet that the Jova weapons will be in Cysero's Superstore of Savings this Friday, too. Because who can refuse a request from the Elemental Avatars when they're in a good mood?
