Cotton Candy!

Ahoy Pirates!

I hope you had a great week. I had a busy week because I had a few homework assignments I had to finish right away. I know next week I should have a lot more time because this week I registered late to a class that I needed and this week I had two weeks worth of homework assignments! I'm thankful I'm done with that and I can make a post for you again. :) I got to log onto Pirate101 today and quest a little bit on my swashbuckler, Edward Cringle. :D And let me say... COTTON CANDY again.. :P Trust me, you'll understand soon why I keep saying that over and over. :P



Now before I tell (show) you why I keep mention cotton candy, I'm going to talk a little bit about what happened the last time I made a post about my swashbuckler. On my last post I had to save Mayor Komatsu about an attack made by ninja pigs that was arranged by Doctor Noh. Doctor Noh is General Tso's righthand man and he's recently attacked many leaders around Mooshu that want to keep peace. The Mayor told me that I needed to talk to Constable Tatami and tell him the news about the Ninja Pigs. Constable told me that I needed to talk to Egg Foo Yung and ask him where Doctor Noh is so I can defeat him so he doesn't do anything like this anymore and reveal General Tso's plans. Today I had a chance to talk to Egg Foo Yung and level to 44! :P Egg told me that Doctor Noh was hidden inside a vortex called Tai Foon Vortex in Khotan Skyway.




















I entered the Vortex (or Cotton Candy machine :P) and found the ship Doctor Noh was hidden on. I had a chance to hit a few times but wouldn't be able to sink it because it's unsinkable and will pull you into battle. Doctor Noh wants to fight you, not sink your ship. :P This fight was easy. I can't believe I'm saying it but I didn't have any issue with this fight because I was well prepared with my attacks. I'm sure I'm going to regret saying that soon, but I guess I can at least be happy about this fight. This fight was easy mostly because I was able to defeat Doctor Noh before he hit me or any of my companions. I think I might have been lucky this time around. :D Make sure you're careful when you exit the Vortex since there are turtles flying around. Anybody craving cotton candy? I am, but I have no idea why. :P So today, was a lot of fun since I was able to defeat Doctor Noh and return him to Egg Foo Yung. Next time we'll find out who has the piece of the El Dorado map and who we have to defeat to get that piece of map.. I'm curious (even though I already know, you might too, but ya know). :D Okay, time to end this post because now I'm rambling... COTTON CANDY!!

Doctor Noh likes Cotton Candy, why else would he hide in that vortex?! Well remove the fact that he did bad things.

KI Live: Wizard101's 7th Birthday!

Hi there!

The community managers of Wizard101 and Pirate101 are having another Kingsisle Live on September 3rd, 2015 (next Thursday) at 4:00 P.M. CST. I'm going to list a few reasons I'm excited about this Kingsisle Live below.. I'm sure many of you can tell I'm excited about this next KI Live, who isn't?! :P

  1. Wizard101's 7th Birthday: I've been on the game since Wizard101 celebrated their first Birthday. I remember a time before they had mounts, school themed houses, advanced spells, and even the crowns shop itself. Time flies by when you're having fun and everybody knows Wizard101 is a lot of fun. I can't wait to see all of the decorations in the Commons. I'm excited about Kingsisle Live because well.. think about it.. Kingsisle Live is always fun, but this one will have a special Birthday included! :P A few of you pirates should attend because Wizard101 is a major reason why Pirate101 is here! ;D
  2. NO CLASS: This is completely random, but I don't have class next Thursday and that means I'll be able to attend the event. Last year I didn't get to even attend Wizard101's celebration itself since I had class. I'm going to finish all of my homework and everything so I know I'll be able to attend. :D YES!!!! Sorry, I'm excited!
  3. Our Community Managers: You know Tom, Leala and #JuliaFromKI put a lot of hard work into each and every episode of Kingsisle Live and it really means a lot to me (and I'm sure many others) that they created this wonderful livestream for us! Thank you for everything you do for the community and for being the best people ever!

Morganthe Fight: 2nd Time's a Charm!

Hello Wizards!

I hope you are having a great end of your weekend! I still can't believe it's back to school time already.. You know that means the Holidays are right around the corner. :P It doesn't mean I won't make blog posts though. :D I have plenty of great posts planned. :) I know I've been slacking a little but I promise I'm not giving up on this blog or especially you! Speaking of not giving up, Autumn and I decided to try to fight Morganthe again since my Fire Wizard and her life wizard didn't collect the quest the last time around.



The last time we were online we had to fight Morganthe but didn't have as much experience as we did now as we do now. I think today was pretty easy since we knew how to defeat her. We wasn't defeated this time around which really shows how much we had fun. I'm glad we both decided to log onto the game today and try it again! This shows that you should never give up on something you're working hard for. Remember that if you fail the first time at something that you're working hard to finish on the game or even in real life, it's okay! You will always have plenty of chances to do the the thing you always want to do or in Wizard101's case, defeat that boss. I've had plenty of times on the game where I wasn't able to defeat enemies on the game and thought I'd never be able to. I didn't give up and was able to defeat them. Today we didn't give up and defeated them! I've had times alone on quests where I thought I'd never get to a certain level or quest through a dungeon alone, but I did! As I said above, my advice is to NEVER GIVE UP! :) You'll make it through whatever you're going through if you remembere to keep trying. :)



I really hope you loved my Never Give Up speech as much as I loved defeating Morganthe with Autumn again the second time. We had the same plan to cast as many aoe spells to defeat all four Morganthe bosses. I'm just glad we collected what we needed to finish the rest of the storyline to prepare for the next world. This is the first time in years that I've finished the main storyline before a new world was released! Get ready, because you'll finally see me making posts about the new world (whenever it's released). :D This was a random post, but I hope you enjoyed it anyway! I love making posts for you and about you know, one of the best games in the world! :D Thank you all for reading this post and hopefully I can make another post soon after this short week of class. :) Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral! :)

You gotta admit, that's pretty awesome! Hmm, I can't wait to see Old Cobb again...

PayItForward: Paige Moonshade

Hi there!

This is the second Pay It Forward blog post out of three posts that I'm going to make. I'm sure there are people who don't know this blog and in this case, I think that's great! I wanted to make Pay It Forward a part of the community to show everyone that we care that we're happy to have a certain person in the community. I'm going to give a shoutout on this website to three different people each month in the community (even if they've been chosen in Pay It Forward).


Paige Moonshade

The second person of the month is Paige Moonshade! Paige has been in the Wizard101/ Pirate101 community for many years! She's made many amazing blog posts about housing updates, had amazing contests like her Annual Best Little Dorm In Wizard City and has always been nice to everybody in the community. You can also click on the image attached above for a link to her amazing website! Paige, I'm thankful that you're here in the community and I know the community wouldn't be the same without you! I want to thank you for all of the hard work you do on your blog and keeping the community together. :) If you can, please make a post when you can about a certain someone you think deserves a shoutout in the community for just being who they are. :D You can make a post about somebody on Twitter or anybody that you think deserves a shoutout on your website. Don't forget not to mention that I'm the creator of this Pay It Forward. I want it to be a secret. :) It's not that much of a secret, but soon nobody will know who I am and that's my goal. I want somebody to know that they belong in the community and we care about them. :) Don't forget to tell the person that you mention to PayItForward!





PayItForward: ShadowhornGG

Hi there!

A few days ago I decided to share a certain streamer, youtuber, blogger or anyone that's really nice a shoutout on my website. Trust me, if I don't share you, I'll most likely give a shoutout to somebody here on Around the Spiral with Edward Lifegem! The rules are: 1. Pay It Forward by giving a shoutout to somebody else that is special in the community. 2. Don't tell anybody that I'm the one who created the Pay it Forward for the community. 3.  Keep in mind it can be about anybody in the community!


ShadowhornGG

ShadowhornGG is actually Blaze Shadowhorn from the Wizard101 community. We have been best friends/bros for over four years! He has done a lot in the community in the past who knows how many years and currently has a Twitch Stream and plays games such as Smite, Wizard101, Surgeon Stimulator (he's the best surgeon :P) and many other games! He just created this Twitch stream and does giveaways on it as well! He's done a lot for the community and was recently up from Midnight until 5:00 A.M. playing Wizard101 on his Twitch Stream! That's dedication! :D Make sure to check his Twitch Stream out by clicking the image above. :) Make sure to Pay It Forward to someone in the community that has done something amazing in the community that you think should be shown. You can only do it on your Twitch Stream when you're livestreaming. Make sure to tell that person to PayItForward to somebody else. Remember not to mention me!


PayItForward: Autumn Dreamwalker

Hi there!

This is the third and final Pay It Forward post I'm going to make this month! I'll publish three more Pay It Forward posts next month! I want everyone in the community to know they're amazing and this is why I made these three posts to let a few people know they're amazing and I want them to share somebody else in the community that they're amazing and the people who found out from the ones I choose to tell somebody else. I'm going to keep publishing three posts about wizards and pirates from around the community even if they're chosen. It'll be nice to see how far this goes and how many smiles are put on somebody's face to see that they matter. :D


I have been friends with Autumn Dreamwalker for nearly five years, this December! :D She created Secrets of the Spiral (click the image above to view her website) and started blogging about Wizard101 and Pirate101. She's made many guides and had amazing parties for the community! She's done a lot for the community and I think she's one of the best people you could get to know. :D I'm so happy that I met Autumn and to share her website with you. I'm glad we met all that time ago because I always have fun talking to you, questing with you and of course going to your NXP parties on Pirate101. :D Autumn, please Pay It Forward by giving a shoutout about one person in the community to let somebody know that they're amazing and you are happy you're friends/glad they're here in the wizard/pirate community. Make sure to tell them to pay it forward on your post. Don't tell them I'm the one the one behind this. :D




White Owl Tower

Hello Wizards!

I'm sorry I haven't made a Wizard101 post in awhile. I'm going to try to catch up on everything this weekend after I'm done with a few homework assignments. I'm sure you'll think I'm crazy by saying this, but I'm not as busy now as I was the end of last week and the beginning of this week! :P I might have homework, but the past few weeks have been crazy! That's it for homework and life talk, it's now time to Death and Myth talk?! Haha!!! I know, that was a hilarious joke.. :P



A few weeks ago I said I wasn't planning on talking about my Death and Myth wizard's quests unless they had a major quest or dungeon in the game. I decided I'm going to make a post every now and then to let you know how I'm doing on the game since I'm not blogging as much as I would like to. I've always been that type of blogger that loves logging onto the game and making posts about what I love about it. The White Owl tower is a dungeon that is memorable to me because it's really the first major dungeon in Avalon. The White Owl tower had two (possibly three boss fights if you don't mess up on the potions below).



I didn't have any trouble with the potions since I found a guide on Wizard101 Central! :D I mean really.. Thank you everyone who makes guides because it would be difficult to quest through the game without a guide. I think the White Owl Tower was pretty easy since I made sure both characters were powered up before they hit the boss and minion. I thought this dungeon would be difficult for my wizards, but I guess I'm doing great and shouldn't worry as much. :) I think questing is going great so far and I can't wait to have one day during a weekend to quest as much as possible. Yeah.. I'm planning that. Maybe I'll make a post about that sometime to let you know how that goes. So far, everything is going great. I didn't want to make this post another guide post, just another update on how things are going. BTW, my Death Wizard is level 75 and my Myth Wizard is level 76! :) Now I think it's time to make a few more blog posts. Thank you all for your patience and support! Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral. :D

That's cool! I didn't do anything to this photo. You know I'm not good at graphics, it's all KI! :D

Did I Rescue Mayor Komatsu?

Ahoy Pirates!

I apologize for not making as many posts as I did in the beginning of this month. I've been busy with a ton of real life things that keep getting in the way of me logging onto the game or making blog posts. I promise it's not going to be the same way as it was last year! :D I think this year will be a lot of fun and I know I'll make more posts than I did this time the end of last year. Today I had a chance to log onto the game and quest on my swashbuckler to see if I could rescue Mayor Komatsu from facing the same fate as Wan Po. I know the answer, but you'll have to read through to see if I did.. :P



Today I had to sail to Sujimura Village from the Cave of Whispers in Kaizoku Jima, to warn the Mayor about an attack against him. I found a list in the Cave of Whispers from the Ninja Pigs that attacked Wan Po. The list said that Mayor Komatsu was next and Doctor Noh was the one that hired the ninja pigs to attack certain people. I had to enter the Mayor's house and told him that there were ninja pigs after him. I was worried the ninja pigs would well.. be a ninja and attack while he was talking, but I was lucky enough to catch them before they could attack.





This battle was a simple ninja pig fight, like my last blog post but it was a lot of fun because I was able to catch a few cool screenshots! :D I really do love taking screenshots of pirate and companion attacks. You should know me by now! :P I think that this battle was a simple one since most of the Ninja Pigs were below level 40. Your pirate should be a few levels above 40 by this point in the game so it was pretty easy questing on my swashbuckler. I have to thank the privateer class for providing heals so I could survive! :P This swashbuckler says that anyone who bashes the privateer school doesn't know the game because all of the schools are just as awesome. I'm stronger than any pirate in the game though. :P Nah, I'm just kidding! Maybe... :D Anyways, this battle was easy and Mayor Komatsu told me that I needed to tell Constable Tatami the news about the Ninja Pigs and Doctor Noh. He also thanked me for saving his life, you know.. since I'm the strongest pirate in the game! :P I'm going to end the post here and I'll let you know what Constable Tatami says on my next blog post. :D I promise it won't take as long to make an Edward Cringle post as it did making this post since the last one. Thank you all for all of your support! Until next time, I'll see you around the skyways!

I tried to think of a perfect caption for this screenshot.

What Happened To Blogs Of The Month?

Hi there,

I have put this post off since last... 2013! :P I'm back this Friday to make this post and tell you why I don't share too many blogs on this website anymore. I'm sure a few readers have read this blog for a few years and know that I shared blogs from around the community to give them a headstart when they needed the bump. My website was and still is my favorite thing to do, but I knew I had viewers that might like reading more than just my blog posts so I decided to share quite a few blogs from around the community. I remember searching up Wizard101 blogs and look on Twitter to see if there were any new bloggers out there making posts about the game we all love. I found so many that it was a little overwhelming to make a post every month because there were so many new blogs! I did this not to promote my blog or anything, but to help not that anyone needed help. I made so many posts about blogs that I just love thinking about it because that was when blogging was actually a thing. Wait it still is a thing, at least for me! I love making posts about the games, just like many of the blogs I shared. I decided to stop sharing blog sometime ago because as soon as I shared a post about a few blogs, many of them stop talking to me. For the past few years, I kept thinking that maybe I'm not a good blogger and don't deserve to be one. Why did I think something like that? I didn't know if anyone actually liked me for my posts or just because I made posts about their blog or told them they were amazing. Hey, I could still say that now and many won't reply at all! :P Recently I kept thinking, maybe I should start finding Websites, YouTube Channels, Graphic Artists and whoever else that is creating something for the game and start posting them again. I'm not doing this for me, only for the community! The only thing I ask is that you pay it forward by sharing something NICE on your website, youtube channel or twitter about somebody else around the community. It could be about anyone that is helping the community in a nice way. I'll start this soon, but please promise me you won't forget to do that if I do share something of yours on my website. :) You don't have to tell anyone I'm the one that created it. I'll let you know on my first post. So, this post really is a great way of improving the community and showing everyone, not just somebody that creates something for the game, is awesome and belongs in the community!

My YouTube Channel

Hello Wizards!

I hope you're having a great Thursday! I've been busy getting things ready for school and haven't had as much time to make as many posts as I would like to make. School starts next week, but I still have plans to make blog posts. I'm not going to make a schedule, but I am going to let you know that I'm not going to stop making blog posts like I did last year. My first year was crazy because I was getting used to College, but I still want to make blog posts about the game. I might go a few days without making a post if I'm busy studying for an Exam, but I promise I'm not giving up on you.. Speaking of not giving up, I decided to start posting YouTube videos on my YouTube channel again such as the video below!

My recent video is about one of my wizards, Edward Deathgem. He's currently level 60 and in Marleybone! I'm not going to tell you how this happened (a few of you might know), but I decided to make a few videos of him questing through Marleybone and if you like the videos, maybe a few more worlds. :) I'm going to try to make a few awesome videos, to see if you like them or not. I'm new at YouTube so don't expect anything too awesome. :P I'm still going to make blog posts here but every now and then I might make a YouTube video if I'm too busy this semester. If you would like to see more of my videos (new and old), click this link: https://www.youtube.com/user/Edwardlifegem :D That's for now, I promise I'll get back to making the important posts I need to make soon! Thank you or all of your support. :) Until next time, I'll see you around the Spiral!

NXP Welcome Back Event Recap!

Ahoy Pirates!

I hope you had a great Saturday, I know I did! :D Autumn Dreamwalker from Secrets of the Spiral and I had an NXP Event today and it was a lot of fun. Today wasn't a great day before I logged onto the game because I was trying to get something to work so I could record the event but it didn't want to work at all. I also had a few computer issues which of course happened during the event. :P I still believe this event and the community made my day 1000x better than it was. :)








I had a lot of fun at the NXP and I'm glad a few of you could Nautical Level to the level you wanted to be. I think Scrip and Gold was also perfect during this event because I collected quite a bit from each ship. Sinking ships was not the only thing we did. After nautical leveling, we dropped by Autumn's house and had a Scavenger Hunt. We gave away packs to two people who found certain items hidden around the house and told us about them. On our last question, we gave away a Adorabilis Crowns Shop Pet and a Solar Saber Mount from the Crowns Shop. Both items are in the crowns shop and they're are amazing! :D I'm sure you think I'm done by now, but after we finished giving away the items, we ended up PvPing and I was acting all bad on my Swashbuckler and I WOdidn't win the fight. :P This was a great event! I really want to thank everyone for joining us to celebrate Autumn Dreamwalker being back in the community with her amazing blog. I hope we can have another one soon!

David (Frosty) on his new mount!

Ended up  talking about our favorite TV Shows after PvP! :P

Random Pirate101 Gameplay Video!

Ahoy Pirates!

It's Friday! :D I'm sure many are excited because it's the weekend! I've been trying recording out not for future Edward Cringle posts (since I love posting screenshots), but just because. I decided to record a gameplay video yesterday to see if it would actually work for me and it did. I think the game sound is a little off and I'll need to fix that on my next video, but so far it's great. I didn't get to record my voice this video, but I have plans to do that in future videos. I hope you like my videos as much as you do my blog posts! :P Here's my first very random Pirate101 gameplay video..


August 5, 2015

So Many Ninja Pigs!

Ahoy Pirates!

It's been awhile since I made a post about one of Edward Cringle's main quest! I'm not actually in Marleybone (I'll get there sooner or later), I'm still questing in Mooshu. I love Mooshu so I'm not upset about that, even though I love Marleybone. I still can't believe I'm questing in Mooshu even after all of the months I've been in this world. Well, I guess I can still say Edward Cringle is still the strongest swashbuckler in Mooshu (kidding)!



Mooshu is a lot of fun, but there are certain quests that can really get to you.. I had a quest like that last week that I had to get through. Before I tell you about that quest, lets talk about my last blog post. On my last blog post I had to warn Wan Mo about a pending attack against him and his village. Wan Mo was telling me about how Malistaire cursed the Emperor of Mooshu and one of the worst enemies and that's when NINJA PIGS attacked! :O I had to follow the ninja pigs and sail to Kaizoku Jima and enter the Cavern of Whispers. When I arrived on the island of Kaizoku Jima, there were Inoshishi Bandits running around and I had to make my way around them to the Cavern of Whispers cave. Make sure to be careful so you don't get caught in this area because you'll notice that they really want to fight. :P



This dungeon is full of Ninja Pig fights! I fought so many Ninja Pigs during this dungeon, that I really don't remember what I was looking for. I apologize to everyone about that but it's one of those quests that I remember from my Witchdoctor and I already knew it would be a little annoying. I still love Pirate101 and Ninja Pigs! :P I just hope I don't have a quest like this one for awhile. I believe there were at least six Ninja Pig fights during this dungeon. You'll think that you're over with the dungeon and then you'll have to fight your way out. At the end of the dungeon, I found a letter that said Doctor Noh hired the Ninja Pigs to attack as many targets as possible. The next target on the list is Mayor Komatsu! I just left him to save Wan Mo and made it on time but the Ninja Pigs still attacked him. I'm hoping I make it to Mayor Komatsu on time.. Do you think I will? Check back next time to see if I do! Until then, I'll see you around the skyways!

We're so worried we won't make it on time... :P

Barkingham Palace (Pt. 1 - State Wing)

Hello Wizards!

Many of you know that I had a long break from blogging (and some part of the game) the end of last year to the month of May this year. During that time, I didn't quest through a few areas such as Barkingham Palace that seems old to players now, but they are new to me. I really don't think 6 months ago was a long time ago (I don't even think 2005 was a long time ago :P), so yesterday I decided to quest through the Barkingham Palace for the very first time with my Life and Death wizards! :D



Many of you already know about the Barkingham Palace quest, but I'll talk a little about it for anyone that doesn't know. We have to help Sherlock Bones and Watson from Marleybone find an Opera Singer that might be stealing jewels from the Queen. This dungeon really wasn't a difficult one when you had to fight the mobs (since they didn't cheat). The bosses were a little difficult, especially since this is a level 40+ dungeon. I think anybody that wants a challenge or extra experience should try this dungeon out. I'm sure I'm repeating what many bloggers said in the past, but I am still shocked we were allowed into the Barkingham Palace!



I started Wizard101 in 2009, so I had plenty of theories of what the area would look like. I had a feeling there would be dungeons in the area, so it was pretty awesome to enter it for the first time! The boss in this dungeon was pretty easy to defeat even though they cheated since my Life and Death wizards are well over the 40th level. I found out that the Opera Singer wasn't the bad one, and Dr. Jackall was the bad one that wanted the Queen's jewels and he ran to another dungeon, The Main Hall. I'll make a post about that sometime later! :) I'm not really going to follow the storyline or even tweet this post out, just because I want to remember this as a memory of what I thought about the dungeon, not the storyline itself. I'm probably going to talk more about the Barkingham Palace storyline on my next few posts since this dungeon was a little short. :) Until then, I'll see you around the spiral!

Edward Cringle Makes It To Marleybone!

Ahoy Pirates!

I was bored one day and decided to log onto Pirate101 and quest through Mooshu and now my swashbuckler is currently in Marleybone.. KIDDING! There's no way I could quest that fast and never will on my swashbuckler because he's my walkthrough character. :) I did however make it to Marleybone during Frostcaller's NXP event!



I've had many blog posts over the past few years about my swashbuckler and thought it would be fun to do a few other things with this character: such as join events, try PvP and other awesome things on Pirate101. A few days ago I had a chance to try something new by attending Frostcaller's amazing event on my swashbuckler! I heard something about his event a few days before but was so busy I didn't get a chance to reply or even share his event with everyone reading. I am glad he tweeted a reminder because I would have never known or hit the Nautical Level I've been trying for about a month or so! 



















This event was A LOT of fun and there were plenty of pirates there enjoying the event as much as I was. :D Edward Cringle actually nautical leveled from 39 to 45! I've been using companions to help my pirate nautical level since I was behind on it because I wanted to make as many walkthrough posts since I didn't have anything else to blog about before. I have a lot more now, but I'm still glad I went to his amazing event. I had a few issues during this NXP event since I'm a low level for this area, but I still think it was a lot of fun. Before I forget and ramble on.. Here's a link to Frostcaller's Recap Post! :D Thank you Frosty for the great event and thank you all for reading my recap post! :D

Questing Together!

Hello Wizards!

I hope you're all having a great Sunday. I have been bored offline so I decided to spend part of my day questing through the game with my Death Wizard and Myth Wizard. On my post, Friday, I told you I was considering questing my Death and Myth wizards together since they were both on the same quest in Avalon. Today I decided to give it a try to see if it would actually work..





My death wizard usually quests with my fire wizard if he wants to quest as fast as possible, but I decided that my myth wizard, Edward Mythgem, should have a chance to level up too! I decided to quest through a few boss and mob battles to see if questing the two wizards together would actually work.. I have decided that both wizards should quest together from now on so I can level two wizards to level 100. I plan on questing them to level 100 before October. I hope I can get nice gear and pets for both wizards too. I have a plan for my death wizard that I'm not going to announce now, but I'm hoping it works out! Wish me luck. I'll make another update post sometime soon to let you know if I have any trouble on major bosses and will make a post about dungeons (such as the last dungeon in Avalon). Thank you all for reading! Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral. :)

She doesn't look too happy that I had to take a screenshot of her.


The Moon is happy he has a guard dog & doesn't have to get his hands dirty. Wait.. "he" doesn't have hands!

3rd Pirateversary!

Ahoy Pirates!

I wanted to make a short blog post to let you know that I've been playing Pirate101 for three years! I can't believe it's already been that long. Pirate101 is an amazing game and I love everything about it. I love the storyline and graphics the most because you can tell Kingsisle has put so much work into the game! I am happy I could join Beta to help Kingsisle test out the game. I had a lot of fun helping Kingsisle test out the game before it was released to the public. I made videos and a lot of stuff when it was first released so I'm going to post a few screenshots and YouTube videos that I made over the past few years. :D Thank you Kingsisle for all of fun over the past three years. I'm not quitting the game, I promise! :P So keep the game running FOREVER. :D

Skull Island, Christmas and Space Art?!

Ahoy Pirates!

Did you know I love Pirate101? Yeah... I do! :P I logged onto the Pirate101 Test Realm to test out an update that I wanted to test out before I went on vacation last week. :D I wanted to buy one of the interactive Art Books on the Pirate101 Test Realm to see all of the wonderful art. I decided to buy The Art of Skull Island first for 2,000 crowns from the Crowns Shop since Skull Island is the first world to see what it was like.  :D

I need to buy a few of these to put in my Witchdoctor's House when it's released! :D





















I wonder if Ratbeard will ever look like this again in a new promotion?






















I think the Art of Skull Island is amazing, but I know my favorite Art Book even if I didn't look at the rest yet... MARLEYBONE. I love Marleybone (if you didn't know that by my backgrounds) and the Art of Marleybone is already my favorite because it reminds me of Christmas (well Pirate101 Marleybone reminds me of Christmas because of Ebeneezer Scrooge) and it's a space theme! :D I didn't check all of the Art Books out since I want to save a few of them for a surprise on the live realm. I know I'm going to buy a few for my Witchdoctor's house. I've already made a collection of teleporters, Christmas trees, pets and special companions so I think I'm going to add this since this is also one of my favorite things on the game! :D I can't wait until it's released to the live realm! I should go... need to prepare my brain to test PvP tomorrow or Monday. Wish me good luck! I'll make a post about my first Ranked PvP match after I test it out! Until then, I'll see you around the Skyways. 

Ebeneezer Scrooge (Ha, funny how there's a Christmas tree in the background)





















My Favorite Art so far! I'd love to have that image as my background on my website!
