When Sky Squids Attack!

Aargh me fellow pirates!

I just have two words for you- Sky Squid!

J Todd Coleman has just shared one of the questions which help determine your pirate's school! It's just not as pleasant as I would expect, yarrr!
Here it is:

So tell me, how were your parents eaten by a sky squid, yarr?

So I guess that Commander Gandry really is Boochbeard's apprentice, or his brain/bodyguard after all!

Haha, I just hope I answer the questions properly to become a Swashbuckler, right? Ho-ho-ho!!

Onto even bigger news, Ambrose2Zeke's Pirate101 Hub has become an official Pirate101 Fansite! 
Yarr-har-har! Congrats John!
Don't be a forgetful one, and be sure to enter the contest for your chance and winning all that booty!

A Pirate's Treasure- A Sneak Peek of Design & Fan Art!

Aargh ye ol' chaps!

Recently, J Todd Coleman has posted a picture on Facebook shows the art and sequence of when you begin Pirate101.
Check the picture below: 

J Todd Coleman adds, and I quote:
another interesting look behind the curtain: sometimes when we need to do a dialogue sequence (usuallly connected to some important event, like character creation or a significant encounter) we'll break it into storyboard frames, the same kind that you might use when creating a movie or a TV show.

Well, I think that's very interesting! It begins with you in a prison, which I believe is Zenda. Afterwards, Commander Gandry, along with Boochbeard, enters and sets you out of the cell. There, I believe you name and personalize your pirate, and there's also a tutorial to teach you the combat style I'm guessing?
Yep, this game will be super interesting!

Just a little while ago, I tried to do a sketch of a fellow Swashbuckler, Morgan Latiffe:

I think it came out pretty well, don't you?

Happy Sailing, young pirates!

Let's begin, shall ye?

*Official Pirate101 accounts:

-Twitter: @Pirate101_Avery (!/Pirate101_Avery)
Pirate101 has no verified Twitter account at the moment, so they have been tweeting from Captain Avery's official account! Follow today!


*Pirate101 Communities:

From the creators of Wizard101 Central, comes Pirate101 Central! Join these kid-friendly forums today!

The Twitter Pirate101 community is a friendly and supportive one. When you join, you can use the hashtag #Twirates to get yourself known as a future Pirate101 player on Twitter!

When Pirate101 is released to all, many Pirate101 players are expected to make fantasy Facebook accounts, such as the current Wizard101 community there. However, the Facebook community is unlikely to be kid-friendly or safe. Only join if you are ages 13+!
