MQ On YouTube? A dedicated longtime player known as DrePlaysGames on YouTube has started a series of MechQuest videos! Here's the link to his channel . (Disclosure - he's not just a random player, but actually someone I know in real life.)
Do you have MechQuest videos, or ideas for them that you've never gotten off the ground? Let's see what you've got! Email me the link to your video or channel, or you can also use Twitter to let me know. You've got a chance to get it shared on the Design Notes. No guarantee of course - if I get a zillion responses I'll end up having to pick some randomly to highlight. They don't have to be instructional - they can be amusing or exciting or surreal or whatever direction your artistic vision takes you. What they should be to qualify as something I might share is pretty simple - they should be clean - no hax, no swearing - and basically family-friendly.
Flavescent Friday Wishlists! Start making your wishlists because we'll have a forum post for your input shortly. What's Flavescent Friday, you ask? We put items into a special limited-time discount shop for you and also choose a few rare items to include (some of those are not discounted).
Please do not make suggestions for any of the following:
Anything that has been promised as perma-rare
Arthurian Eagle/Pirate Raider
Other AvP war rares
Crystal Asteroid rares (especially Shadow Blight/Purge)
One of us from the MQ team will set up a forums thread for your wishlists within the next day or so. For those who don't use the forums, we'll have some kind of alternative.
Now I need to wrap everything up for tomorrow's Turkageddon release! Nearly everything is done - I just need to get the mecha battles set up and the rewards shops plugged in and a couple of elements of the "outro" squared away. And finish the town interface. So I'll talk with you again soon.
(Also for this week: Ash & Lyris are working on this year's Zorbo, and Clarion is creating an e-blade for his birthday, too.)

Turkageddon is a Monster Holiday!: So of course you need a new monster in your favorite mecha battle roleplaying game, and we've got one for you in MechQuest! You'll encounter someone new to battle and you'll find yourself a new enemy. Holiday shopping is insane at this time of year, but that's not the only place you'll run into trouble!
