Interview with Johnny from Pirates of the Spiral

Ahoy there mateys!
This week, I've had the honor of interviewing Johnny, the owner of Pirates of the Spiral, and better known as a moderator on Wizard101 Central, and from his community Twitter profile.
Here it goes,hope you all enjoy!
My questions are in PEACH, and Johnny's responses are in WHITE, right below the questions.

-Hey Johnny! Let's get to know you a bit first. How did you first hear about Wizard101, and what inspired ou to join the community?
A little after the beta ended, I was home one night watching tv not aware of the game called Wizard101 until the first commercial aired which I happen to see! My first thought was wow it reminds me alot of Harry Potter! The whole ravenwood school and learning magic reminded me alot of hogwarts and I went to the computer and started downloading right away! I fell in love with the game and I'm still playing 5+ years later! A little after I signed up for the game, I began searching for guides and tips and found the site ! The site became very helfpul since I was a beginner and a lot of people their were in the beta. It was a great experience to be apart of a forum where everyone loved Wizard101. Along the years, Ive been sharing my knowledge and help and became a moderator for the site. It was an honor to be asked. The Wizard101 community is like no other at all! Its one of the best fan communitys I have been apart of! We are like a big family.

Lest We Forget- Veteran's Day 2012

Happy Veteran's Day 2012

Today we remember those who fought, served, those who died for their country.
We look back in history, and remember the veterans whose selfless sacrifice set the path for our complete freedom.
No one is better than a patriot, and no sacrifice is too small for recognition.

"Valor is a gift. Those having it never know for sure whether they have it till the test comes. And those having it in one test never know for sure if they will have it when the next test comes." -Napoleon Bonaparte.

To celebrate Veteran's Day, Kingsisle has introduced a new item in both Pirate101 and Wizard101, both obtainable by redeeming the promotional code 'Remember'. This is how the Medal Display Case looks:

Do you have any family or friends who are/were veterans? Let us know in the comments.

Happy Sailing, young pirates!

New Guides Tab!

Ahoy there!

That Swashbuckler has added a "Guides" tab t' help you with your adventure in Pirate101! Our first guides will be on Zeke Quests. So far the Skull Island Funky Bunch has been posted and you can check it out now! 

Let's get to know Zeke a little better.

Well first of all, what do ye know?!? Prospector Zeke has traveled to Pirate101! Prospector Zeke is an explorer who travels to all worlds in both Wizard101, and Pirate101. Every time you meet him in a new world, he has a quest for you! All his quests require you to find a specific thing throughout that world you're in. He usually has 10 things for you to find, all the same thing, except in different areas of that world. For example, if I find a banana pile in Blood Shoals, I would have to find that same banana pile, except in Puerto Mico, or any other area in Skull Island. However not ALL areas have banana piles. You can check which area has bananas or not by looking in your book. For finishing his quest you receive 1 practice point. In case you didn't know what a practice point is, I'll tell you a little more about it. A practice point is used to gain new attacks from other teachers in Avery's Court, not just your main teacher.

Pirate101 Interview with Edward LifeGem!

Ahoy there maties!

I've gotten the honor of interviewing Edward LifeGem, the owner of Around the Spiral with Edward LifeGem

Edward LifeGem's Pirate101 character name is Edward.

I hope you all enjoy the interview!

Ahoy, Edward!
First of all, I'd like to thank you for this awesome interview.
Below are a few questions for you about Pirate101.

-Could you tell us about your Pirate101 character, Edward?

Edward --
I created my character, Edward, on October 8th during the beginning of the one-week headstart. I didn't know what class to choose because all of the classes on Pirate101 are really great classes. I noticed Friendly was a witchdoctor, and he said a lot of great things about that school, so I created one! I love this school so much, its very easy to quest if you use the right hits on enemies. Witchdoctor might be my favorite school now! Recently I made a blog post about defeating Deacon in Cool Ranch, wow he's a very hard person to defeat. I died two times trying to defeat him. Third time is a charm though for some reason. After that I finally made it to the last world, Mooshu, Its a very beautiful world and I'm sure everyone will like it. I'm level 39 so far, just about 40! I'm Hoping to quest through Pirate101 a lot more this weekend and next week to complete Mooshu.

Final Days of Life- The Boochbeard Bundle

Ahoy there mateys,
It's Chris, back here on the blog!

Fellow pirates, it appears we have a very concerning situation.. Th' Boochbeard Bundle be leaving!
Apparently Capt'n Boochbeard was found guilty for stealing barrels of yum and was sentenced to be eaten by a Sky Squid.
Captain Avery does not want ol' Boochbeard to be remembered, so he has ordered for th' Boochbeard bundle to be retired on November 11th.
If you have not, I strongly recommend purchasing this $89 bundle, which is probably the best offer that Kingsisle has ever made.

Here's an explanation of why one may find it reasonable to buy this epic bundle:
