Could Birth-o-Ween Bear a New Pack for Pirate101?


When Happy Birthday
means Halloween,
the skies will churn
with a ringing scream

Pirates, pirates everywhere
Will be on the lookout for a birthday scare
But upon the years, just looking back
We may be in time for a halloween pack!

Mateys and Spirallites, here we are again - October on a very special day. Twitter began to buzz about what could happen during the Birth-o-Ween celebration in Pirate101, and a very good point popped up after some talk and the release of the Harrowing Hoard Pack in Wizard101: What about a pack for the pirates?

Satire: Why Crabs Need Sparkshooters


Donna Devereaux has been sitting pretty on my character selection screen for at least a few months.  I often wonder what things would be like, should I have not decided to play a Swashbuckler over my travels. Dead-eye the Bucc? Privateer? Witchdoctor, or even a Musketeer? A Musketeer fits Donna perfectly, and she does it pretty well, armed with her own Sparquebus and a harpoon-wielding crab...

Wait...what

This post was going to be terrible. Thanks to Donna, however, it has been brightened to the point of reinvention by none other than a crustacean. A giant crustacean.

A giant crustacean of mass destruction.

Exploring Fan-Fiction Character Differences

Hello! I type this with a sprained wrist. While I have a post nearly written in my archives, creating graphics is a little difficult. However, I did last night treat myself to a short character observation over my two favorite fan-fiction characters - Destiny Soultamer and Dead-eye Destiny - having been inspired by the new quests in Wizard101 connecting the two storylines of the Spiral. Establishing my characters' personalities and knowing how they apply is a powerful tool in writing and understanding their actions.
