Welcome to the new site

Hi everybody.  Welcome to the brand new website.  Since I’ve got a couple of new book series about to start up, we figured it would be smart to make a one-stop-shop instead of creating a separate site for each new series so…here it is!  Most of the Pendragon content from the old site is here. (Check out the new covers)  Instead of the old forums there’s a blog where you can post thoughts and comments.  I’ll be checking that quite a bit and adding my own comments…as soon as I figure out how it works.  And of course you can still e-mail me, just like always.  Take a look around, and come back often for updates.

    I love the new covers for Pendragon! 😀 I’m excited about this Morpheus Road…

  2. Ela says:

    It’s great to see the new website up! I’m majorly looking forward to Morpheus Road – I remember all through middle school and high school waiting for each new Pendragon book to come out and kick off my summer. I’m still doing the same thing in college! Your books have really meant a lot to me growing up. Keep up the awesome writing =)

  3. Lizzy says:

    Awesome! It’s nice that the site is finally up, and I can’t wait for Morpheus Road. The new Pendragon covers are pretty awesome, too.

  4. Logan Kelly says:

    YAY! I’ve been waiting for this site for ages! It’s too bad the old forums gone 🙁 This is still great though. Now we can see all the AMAZING things D.J comes out with.

  5. Spader says:

    I miss the old forums. I think there should be a link for just Pendragon. This is way to confusing.

  6. Andrew says:

    The new site and the new Pendraon covers are totally awsome. I can’t wait for the new Morpheus Road series.

  7. Erin says:

    I like the old site, but this is pretty cool. 🙂 Can’t wait for The Morpheus Road to come out!!!!^^ I also have a question most people are probably wondering about themselves: Are there ever going to be Pendragon movies? If so, when will they be coming out?

  8. Ben says:

    is there going to be any pendragon movies

  9. Zack says:

    Kind of feel like an idiot here, but couldnt find anywhere to post this… Was anyone else confused about the ending of the pendragon series? I was.

  10. Ashley (DFC/Traveler) says:

    Ah, glad to see that this website is finally up. Been checking almost everyday of February to see when this was going to be up. I miss the old forums though… especially since there weren’t any warnings… Can’t wait for Morpheus Road, though.

    Let’s see if I can help with some of the questions:

    Erin and Ben: As far as I know, there aren’t going to be any Pendragon Movies. Personally, I think that’s a smart idea. It’s much better to see something in your head instead of being told how a character looks without any imagination involved.

    Zack: I don’t want to post any spoilers, but what part confused you? Who delivered the journals? How exactly it worked? Or the science of it? Feel free to e-mail me (minstrelofsarcasm@yahoo.com) for clarification.

  11. DJ says:

    Thanks Ashley. Help Zach out.

  12. Cory says:

    I LOVE the new covers! Though, I have to ask, who came up with the designs of the symbols for the Traveler Ring on the first cover? It’s awesome to see what they look like finally!

  13. Laken says:

    Just caught a look at the new covers and I’ve got to say, they look fabulous 🙂

    Just a quick question, are there going to be new covers for all ten books? I’d love to see what books 6-10 would look like.

    Also, love the new site. Very nice!

    Can’t wait for Morpheus Road! It’s going to be great.

  14. DJ says:

    Yes Lakin, there are eventually going to be new covers for all the Pendragon books. They’re all done, too…and look just as awesome. But the covers for 6-10 won’t be available until next year. The fellow who designed them is the same guy who designed the Morpheus Road cover…he’s great.

  15. Michael Thomas says:

    I really like the covers so far. The old covers were cool but these ones each have a unique color scheme and pattern which is awesome.

    I really like this new site. I wasn’t a huge part of the old one but that was mainly because by the time I had thoughts about joining the community there was already reconstruction for new ones (this one mainly) so I just waited it out and a blog does seem like a good idea.

  16. Mike says:

    Just posting to check to see if you knew that on the Reality Bug’s Page, it has The Light background and not the strange “blue” background it does on the others. I don’t know if this is on other pages, but I just thought I’d say, in case it was an error or something.

  17. Daisy says:

    I’m a little disappointed that there aren’t the forums anymore. This is good too though.

  18. Swiffy says:

    Love the new covers, even though the old ones were cool, too. Looking forward to seeing 6-10, but looking forward even more to Morpheus Road! It sounds so cool!

    D.J., you are a beast mode author!

    The new site is cool too.

  19. spader5 says:

    In my opinion, this new site is better than the old one. it combines the awesomeness of pendragon and the other works of D.J.!

  20. spader5 says:

    will there ever be another Pendragon graphic novel? the first was awesome, and cloral would look awesome in comic form!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. D.J. MacHale says:

    Nope. Sorry. No more graphic novels. We got as far as writing the script for Faar, but then it was decided that the first gn wasn’t as succesful as everyone would have liked, so the plug was pulled on the rest.

  22. Swiffy says:

    Aw, man. The graphic novel was cool!

  23. Mike says:

    Aww no! That’s a real shame! 🙁

  24. spader5 says:

    no more graphic novels????????????????????????????????????????????????????? noooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. Alex Kelly says:

    RIGHT when I need the old forums, I find out that they’ve been replaced with this! NOOOOOOOOOOO!

  26. Rach says:


  27. Ashley (DFC/Traveler) says:

    I know what you mean. I was addicted to the old site… but I was invited to another where some of the same people are. What were your usernames?

  28. Becca (That.One.Girl.) says:

    Yep, I seemed to be addicted to the old site too, but this one is pretty cool. I’m bummed about the rps I was in though and my stories. :/

    By the way, if someone was reading my story ‘Your love is a lie’ and wants to know the end, you can e-mail me at becca1991@yahoo.com. Also if I was in any rps and you wish to continue with them, you can also e-mail me and we can figure something out. ^_^

  29. Ethan J. Tribbett says:

    D.J. MacHale,

    I started reading the Pendragon series when I was a freshman in high school. Once I started reading “The Merchant of Death”, I couldn’t stop. I was instantly addicted to the Pendragon series, and I still am. I am married and I am currently attending Ball State University in Muncie, IN, to become a nurse, and I still love reading your books. My wife has the Harry Potter series…I have the Pendragon series.

    Thanks for the great stories.

    Ethan J. Tribbett

  30. DJ says:


    I was just at Ball State last year. Sorry I missed you, but I’m glad you like the Pendragon series!

  31. Hermit says:

    *sigh* I miss the good ‘ol forums… Made so many friends there, and I never got the chance to say goodbye. I’m gonna go cry a bit now…

  32. Hermit says:

    BUT on a positive note:
    This is an interesting site, and I’m quite excited for the new book. I’m gonna miss the Pendragon series though.
    Hey, Mr. MacHale (or D.J.? I just turned 18, buutttttt I’m used to calling adults Mr./Mrs. whatever, so…) I was wondering something about the ending of the Pendragon series, and I wanted to ask a few questions. Problem is, I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who has not yet read the final book. Dunno what to do…

  33. Ashley (DFC/Traveler) says:


    What was your username on the old forums?

    AND: If you want an explanation, feel free to e-mail me about it. I’ll gladly explain. Already helped out a few people the first time around:



  34. Hermit says:

    Hey Ashley, I’d email you, but I haven’t got an email of my own, and my parents don’t like me using theirs, so… yeah.
    Oh, and my username on the last forum was Hermit of course – and yours was…?

  35. Ashley (DFC/Traveler) says:

    Ah… then we have a problem… Hm… *has an idea*

    Hey DJ? Could you make a blog section for spoilers so that people could have their questions answered without the story being ruined for those who haven’t read it?

    Anyway, my username was The traveler from nowhere on the most recent boards and Don’t Forget Courtney on the older version of the boards.


  36. D.J. MacHale says:

    Sure Ashley. That’s a good idea. I’ll make one.

  37. Hermit says:

    Woot! Good thinking Ashley.

  38. Stephon-gcb says:

    Overall I like the new website it’s spookey yet calming. I noticed that some people were talking about you not continueing the comic books and I am personally I comic FREAK!!!!! & when I read the comic I thought it was really LAME!!!!so I am glad your not continueing it

  39. Nick says:

    “Hermit says:*sigh* I miss the good ‘ol forums… Made so many friends there, and I never got the chance to say goodbye. I’m gonna go cry a bit now…”
    I know what you mean Hermit.
    Hey, I remember you Ashley! I don’t know if you remember me, but I was WICBAT, as I became known. I actually like it better than my long user name that was, “wishicouldbeatravler”. I misspelled traveler. haha.
    these new books sound interesting. haven’t looked at them yet, but i’m sure i’ll be expectant, just the same!
    D.J., I think you should set up another forum section, like on the old site. but keep all the books on it. it’ll be complex to make I’m sure, but just have it to where there’s a link to each book, like how there used to be a link to each portion of the forum, (RPGs, Books, i don’t remember any others that were there), then on each book series forum have the smaller forums (above mentioned). then, for the people who are coming back to the new forum from the old, they’ll be familiar with it.

  40. Ashley says:

    Nick!!!! *hugs* Good to finally talk to you again! I missed you guys so much! I caught up with some of the more “advanced” members on the old forums if you want to meet up with them.

    As for your idea for a new forum… I think that might only attract more hackers to the website… The people coming here from the old website are either going to comment and mention that they were on the old forums, or aren’t going to post whatsoever.

    I don’t know. I miss the way things were, but this is a lot more new-comer friendly.


  41. Nick says:

    Ahh… That makes sense. Well, I just thought it would be nice to have some familarity. It was a thought. Okay, nevermind then. Because one of my friends from the forum told me about it being closed down, I couldn’t believe it. Then he told that it was hackers, the first thing I remembered about it was how much fun the RP’s were. I don’t want other people to have that experience. I don’t remember my friends user name, but I remember his RP name. Zain. Did you ever do an RP with him?

    “Advanced Memebers”? I know what you mean, but which ones?

  42. Ashley says:

    Zain? Sounds familiar… don’t remember the username though… Still trying to cope with the fact that all of that is gone…

    The “Advanced” members I was referring to include: Phi Chisym, DarkGoddess, Shojau, Otter, Creevy, athanreznin, Ajulex, Loos_Necram, Dogma, Superninja, Mavrick, EnigmaticSevens, LiriFairy… there’s a ton more of that type on the site that I feel way too lazy to mention. I wonder where everyone else went to, especially all of the people I used to roleplay with.

    By the way, if you want to get back into roleplaying, found a site all on my own, I did, and you might want to consider joining to get back into the swing of things: http://www.roleplaygateway.com/forum.html

    Blah… it’s late… I’m tired… G’night!


  43. Hermit says:

    No!!! Everyone else is connecting with old friends and Hermit is left all alone… I knew my username was a bad idea…

  44. Neko_chick says:

    DJ, if u ever can, do u think u could go to Des Moins Iowa? i live near there but my family cant travel a lot…. i would love to see my favorite author in person! and i would like to get some help cuz i am writing my own book and i wanted to see if u had any thing i could improve on and see if i have a chance to have it published..

  45. Ashley says:

    Hermit: Feel free to join there. My username is Traveler there, so pm me and I’ll explain how things work. I’ve been there since the last site broke down. There are a few recognizable people there, but not too many. The site is just GIANT!

  46. Stephon-gcb says:

    I think that the old website was more comples and this one is easier to use but less fun because a\you can’t make quizes and such

    also D.J. could you come to Chandler Arizona.

  47. Alex says:

    How can you play pendragon game book 1 (and the others) I only can play 10.

  48. Neko_chick says:

    DJ, i have an idea if u want to start the books up again but without bobby. i was thinking tht maybe u could make it to where one of Marks kids to be a traveler… actually… does tht sound stupid?

  49. Ashley says:

    Neko_Chick: If DJ were to create another book or two with a new set of Travelers, what would they be doing? Who would their opponent be? The Dark Solara doesn’t really have inhabitants, nor would Saint Dane have any more followers.

  50. laithe says:

    Ashely well you could always get some bad spirit from solara again and have him be the bad guy and even as dj hints in his interviews have more territories
