Summer Be Near!

Ahoy there!

Summer is coming up! And you know what my favorite part about that is? No more school! As a matter of fact, school just ended for me today. I will now have more time to make more posts here at That Swashbuckler as well as add new content within short intervals of time. Here's a little sneak peek of what's coming in the near future for That Swashbuckler:

Journey to Bestia

Ahoy there!

Clever Cole Collins is back, this time with the adventures of Cynical Cheyenne, the Swashbuckler!
As soon as I walked out of Avery's Office after learning of Captain Gunn's treasure, Mickey Dugan sought my help. It seems that a coliseum named Bestia is holding some big pet competition, but there is a problem. The Skull Island team lost the egg of one of the pets they were going to use.

Inactivity, Beating the Game, and House Decorating

Avast, me hearties! Let us pillage and explore the vast skyways together,  and... Umm...
Timber our shivers?

So hey everyone. I haven't posted on the blog since my introductory post back on April 9th. I really need to fix that, and that's what I'm trying to do here. So, to introduce exactly what type of blogger I might turn out to be, here's my first adventuring post, along with a status report for how things are coming along.

The All New Mighty Steed Mount!

Ahoy there!

Me and Umbra have written this post together to share our thoughts on this new mount! So, today Kingsisle added a new mount to both Wizard101's and Pirate101's Crown Shop. We must say, we are really impressed with this mount, even though it's an April Phule's day joke!

New Panorama Teaser! - The Underwater Grotto (3/31/2014)

Ahoy there! 

Pirate101 released a new panorama teaser today. We've had nine panorama teasers so far, and a ton of other types of teasers as well. But this panorama teaser is of the "Undewater Grotto"! It's filled with crabs and other sea creatures. If you play Wizard101, you're probably used to these kind of areas, they even have a whole world that's underwater (Celestia). But I can only think of a few underwater areas in Pirate101, so this should be interesting! If you'd like to check out the rest of the panoramas, click HERE, if you want to learn even more, you can read a more detailed post with a ton of information/theories on the current Pirate101 teasers by clicking HERE!

Please click the image below to be directed to a full-screen panorama of the 'Underwater Grotto' that you can navigate through. 

Intructions: Use your arrow keys, or click and drag with your mouse, while viewing the panorama to look around. Use the Shift and Ctrl keys to zoom in and out. Enjoy!

Site Updates

Ahoy there!

As some of you #Twirates  may know, our site has been down for almost five days now. During this time, not much was added. The main reason for this downtime was to test out some site features and to also test out a big contest we've been working on since the beginning of this month. We just couldn't have people browsing the site while things were being tested all over the place. It would end up causing a lot of problems and would also reveal  some details on our contest that you guys shouldn't know about at the moment. For almost half the time the site was pretty much "unusable" as well. Also, a specific date on when this "mystery contest" will be posted has not been determined yet. However you can definitely expect a nice, hard, challenge with extraordinary prizes! But how about we focus on the present for now?

Site Update #1: You probably noticed our new page tabs before you even started reading this post. Our old page tabs were pretty boring with just a plain Time New Roman font so we decided to make it a bit more fancier.

Site Update #2: A new poll was added too! This week's question is "Which is Your Favorite World in Pirate101?". You have seven days to pick your answer(s). Plenty of time! To vote on this poll, scroll to the top of the site and you should see the poll on the right.

Happy Sailing, Young Pirates!
