Happy Holidays!

Thanks to


Lately bin be sailin' on side quests around th' great Spiral. Helpin' out th' small Monquistadors wit' their spices, art supplies, dinners, 'n all sorts 'o random necessities. Once I finished that I sailed over to St. Bonobo's Alley 'n finally fixed me Galleon to where she can sail across th' seven seas 'n back again! After that trip I tried duelin' wit' a other band 'o pirates. Me group won twice...
 After that I found myself caught in a wee problem, I was floatin' above Skull Island 'o all places!

 Need not to worry fer I eventually found me way back to me ship 'n finally fell asleep to th' rockin' 'o th' winds around me.
 Back to ye Aaron!

Thanks Aedan
Happy Sailing!

P.S. Make sure to comment What (if any) Holidays you are celebrating this time of year!

Azteca!

Azteca, The next frontier for us wizards. Thy out these links:

MMORPG's article: http://www.mmorpg.com/gamelist.cfm/game/362/feature/6832/Still-Going-Strong-Azteca-Announced.html/page/1

Games.com's article: http://blog.games.com/2012/10/24/wizard101-azteca/

Massively's article: http://massively.joystiq.com/2012/10/24/wizard101-invites-us-to-the-dinosaur-world-of-azteca-embargo-1/

MMORPG's article comes with quotes from Wizard101 Producer, Leah Ruben who say (just to tease us)
“Somebody will be coming back to assist Morganthe. Players will recognize this character.”

Ooh, who will it be? most of the comments on the posts are saying Malistaire,  but what do you think, I'll put a poll up for you readers to vote on. These next photos are my favorites from the sneak peak so far, all of them are from the three links listed above;

Hmm who is this masked person.
Wizard101 announces Azteca, level cap increase embargo 100 pm EDT 1024
Dinosaur mounts!!

Hmm let me try something...
Let's see, similar build, similar staff, similar way of standing, the Azteca Man has a bigger foot size, or just bigger shoes,
main differences are the colors and well the the wings. Could it be a Maximum Ride/Wizard101 Crossover? Probably not. We already have wings.

Cunning Aedan Morgan!




I've been a pirate for exactly one week and a day. And I haven't even told you guys my name. I be Cunning Aedan Morgan (Currently in Monquistador armor) I am at the moment displeased with the current Monquistadorian Queen and King. First they say that they are the sole ruler of every known Pirate world except Mooshu.


 Then they do a few other things that I won't say for spoilers but I am off the Valencia, landof clockworks to search for Marco Pollo*'s Map!

*If you want to learn more about where Marco Pollo's name originated look no further than Marco Polo! Marco Polo was a famous traveler from the city of Venice, Italy. He is most famous for his book "The Travels of Marco Polo". This book inspired Christopher Columbus. And one fun fact: He has a sheep named after him!

It is very fun. I'm so glad everyone gets to enjoy it. The combat system is really cool. The different companions add cool elements to the game. Well I actually am going to play through the game. Have fun!

I'm in

I got this card :) I'm in!

Countdown: 4

Quick side note: Don't you love when Firefox decides to get rid of Google to where you cant go anywhere but your homepage while your in it? Anyway...
 The Nightmare card pack has returned* and with it comes a few new items such as the Dead Beets seed, Penumbra Drake pet, Nightrunner Mount and Cloudstrider Pegasus mount! Pretty cool I personally want the Penumbra Drake pet or Nightrunner mount. I remember last time I bought this pack I got the Pumpkin staff and Gobbler pet both of which are still in my ice house. And thanks to Swordroll we now know of three new cards coming to Wal-Mart for both Wizard101 and Pirate101. He goes into more depth on his blog so here's the link to his post: (http://www.swordroll.com/2012/10/new-giftcards-hint-at-prehistoric-world.html)

Countdown: 5 plus new pieces

And if you're wondering I do not mean pieces as in the Nine Pieces of Eight from Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End movie. I mean 'pieces' as in Art Pieces, painted by Kingsisle concept artist, Dave Greco. At his blog (http://myelectronicdays.blogspot.com/) You can find his art. most of which was commissioned for Wizard101 and Pirate101. The latest ones include:

 These are my favorite out of the new ones but I really like the woodland girl in his post from May 8th (http://myelectronicdays.blogspot.com/2012/05/little-free-time-during-lunch-hours.html) But that's just my opinion which ones do you like? (only five more days!)

Countdown: 6 (and a new card)



The new bundle costs $29 and is now available at Walmart. It comes with:
  • A Marleybonian warship
  • A Bulldog companion
  • A Naval outfit
  • A Military sabre
  • A Crow's nest housing add-on
  • 1 month or 5000 crowns
Sounds cool, doesn't it? In blogging news how do  you guys like my new header? I'm thinking that I might do some recoloring on the blog since I am now a Swashbuckler/Thaumaturge (If I do it would probably be changing some of the blues to lighter colors).

Countdown: 7 (or not)

Only one week left! or if you happen to be going to GameStop and buy one of  the three cards mentioned in yesterday's post you get early admission into Pirate101! The only other ways you can get in are: being in Closed Beta, purchasing either the Boochbeard or Gandry Bundle, becoming a Pirate101 Member, or redeeming a Gift Certificate for a Pirate101 Prepaid Membership. [(side note) I just made Mozzarella sticks from this website (http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=941443) and they are pretty good for my first try!]

Sunday, October 7, 2012

Countdown: 8 days...

Pirate101 closed beta has ended and the Early admission starts on the 'morrow! But if you're like me I have to wait a week, hence the title and new widget over there (-->), before the game is even out the cards have alreadly flooded GameStops across the country. The first card is a $39 bundle (much like the Epic and mega bundles)Like the other $39 dollar bundles it comes with one month subscription or 5,000 crowns, an outfit (Cutthroat) based on your level, and an Island (Castaway), Unlike the rest it comes with a Ship (Sharktooth) , Shark companion and the Skullcutter Cutlass.

The next Card is the $10 one this card comes with a crab as a pet (I do hope that he's trained) this is also available at GameStop.
The final and $20 dollar card comes with a Walking octopus pet with... Blue Rings?! AH! That be a poisonous Octopus! To be specific the Southern Blue-Ringed Octopus.


Well on that note I must sail off...
