Become a 15th Upholder

Support AQWorlds and Become a Legend!

Starting now, upgrade your account with any membership to become a 15th Upholder. You'll instantly unlock a bounty of exclusive items and perks. We always say that we make AdventureQuest Worlds for and with you. It would not be what it is today without the trust and confidence of the original Founders and early Upholders... and we would not be able to build what comes next without your support now. 

History of Founders and Upholders

15 years ago, in 2008, AdventureQuest Worlds went live. A legion of passionate AdventureQuest Guardians and DragonFable DragonLords joined us on a new game-making journey. The early support of those Founders kept AQWorlds free for everyone to play. In recognition of their trust and confidence, every October we host a new Upholder promotion to reward other heroes who support the game's development.

15th Upholder Star Swords

The 15th Upholder Star Swords are based on fan-favorite NPCs from AdventureQuest Worlds.

  1. Artix's StarSword of Destiny
  2. Zhoom's Sandsea Ranger Star Sword
  3. Dage's Underworld Star Sword
  4. Warlic's Blue Mage Star Sword

(A while back, I polled my followers on Twitter to see which NPCs were among the most popular. We based a number of our Talk Like a Pirate Day armor sets as well as this year's Star Swords on those results. Thank you for your suggestions and feedback!)
