''Well, Christmas is over and it's time to say goodbye to our yearly Yuletide release. As you've probably noticed, I've put in a few updates in recent days. There are skin color options on four of the avatars. I just added skin color options to the Dark Knight today. Choice of skin color has been something I've wanted for a very long time, but technical challenges held it up for quite a while. I've been reading the recent posts with interest and although I understand that there is a risk of having racist comments in the chat console, the game is better, more inclusive and more representative of the playerbase for having choice.
In other news, the Dragon pet can now be ridden as a mount. This isn't the full flight feature some were hoping for where you can go as high as you want, but I think you'll still enjoy it. The dragon hovers about twelve feet off the ground and the camera is raised to give a sense of height. I hope you like it.''
