Spookasode 6 Rundown & Opening Day Info

Hey-o! So Episode (spookasode) 6 was pretty good :) We got a better turn out then our past few episodes XD We had a spooky intro music that was remixed as well as an epic background picture for the episode XD We also had an epic after party where the rule was, be in a halloween outfit or get out :P Of course we wouldn't follow through with this but it was a fun time XD The best part in my opinion was that we got it all in one recording!!! Yay for a good wi-fi connection!!!

Now we discussed the new Nightmare Packs, and the new houses and much more. We had a contest where you had to tell us the name of the main mount that was dropped from the Nightmare pack. Unfortunately everyone said the answer in the chat room a bajillion times so lucky me got to be like, "Clear chat room, clear chat room, clear chat room" a lot of times :P

So basically, the episode was pretty sweet XD We had a fun time and we hope that all you who listened in enjoyed it as much as we did XD Nick especially loved using his scary voice during the show and me trying to do a scary voice ;) Nick also brought up a irl thing about me and a Spider which I wasn't so fond about :P

Anyways, for all you viewers, thanks for listening in, and for all of you that didn't, you missed out on a spooktacular time XD You can always listen to it on our Livestream though.

Make sure to tune into Episode 7 on November 6th at 8:30pm Eastern Standard Time.
Now here was the picture we used for our spooktacular episode XD

photo credz to Nick. I never got to finish mine :P

Now for some after party photos!

Some PvP action :)

Some Colossus Action by moi

Some of our amazing viewers who came to listen and partay :)

Hello All.

As you probably know by know, Wizard101 was undergoing continuous maintenance last night so we were unable to have Opening Day.  Note that Opening Day has been rescheduled. The new info is as follows:
  • When: Sunday October 30th.
  • Time: 7pm Eastern Standard Time
  • Pick up: Ravenwood; Realm-Scarecrow Area-1
Everything is the same as it originally was except the date. Remember that we can only take 50 students so arrive early to reserve your spot. The Port Bus, Blaze Shadowhorn (level 1 Storm) comes occasionally during the day to add students, so if your there early and you see the port bus, add him to reserve your spot. We had a good 15+ people camping out for a good 5+ hours to reserve their spot. 

Thanks again for understanding and sorry again for the inconvinience.
Cya at Opening Day :)

(MEGA POST!!!) New Mega Bundle, Zebrifica, Card Packs, Mystery Pet Revealed, Outfit

When you hear the term, best for last, what do you think about. In this scenario I think about Zebrifica made real XD As I said, save the best for last so onto the new card packs ;)

Wizard101 has released a new special Halloween card pack which is the cheapest it's ever been! For only 299 Crowns, you get tons of housing items and lots of pet snacks, don't even get me started on all the tons of pets you can get (check Talon's blog for a list of tons of pets) but best of all, the outfit and mount. This outfit is amazing! Probably me favorite yet! For all of you who know how much I don't favor the Dragon's Hoard Outfit and the Wyvern's Hoard I don't mind but this is just plain E.P.I.C.

   The outfit was based off of the Ianthine Spectre pet so you knows it gotta be epic. It's got a Dragonspyre feel to it don't you think. Anyways the new outfit is epic! it's got a hat that makes your face look pitch black and all you see are two glowing green beady eyes. Spooky right. The for the outfit you have tattered rags like a cape, and for the boots, ghostly. The staff is my favorite part though. It is a Scythe. It's like the Wraith's scythe but for a staff! It glows light blue like the morning ocean but you can see the devastating darkness, wanting to seep out and break over the land.
    The mount is a horse but a ghost. Something you would see out of a scary movie with a saddle with skulls on it and a blue ghostly shade. The mount is very epic and close to my favorite so far XD Here are a few pictures of the outfit and mount.

In game they look more scary. Beware the dark.


Now we have some new Epic updates in ze Spiral! We have two, not one, but two new Mega Bundles!!! Introducing the Super Bundle and the Hawk Rider Bundle. These are the most epic bundles yet I must say. Like I say, best for last so let's start with the Hawk Rider Bundle.

The Hawkrider Bundle comes with a

(Item) Hawk Rider Bundle Gift Card.png
  • High Flying Hawk mount 
  • Night Hawk pet
  • 2 Handed Claymore (Sword)
  • Ranger Outfit
  • Teleport Tapestry
  • 1 Month Sub or 5,000 Crowns

This is one of my favorites because the armor, mount, and pet remind me of Horus, the Egyptian God which had the symbol of the Hawk/Falcon. Although the Hawk isn't a multi-player mount, you can make it one ;) I was hanging with Fallon Shadowblade from Diary of a Wizard earlier and me and her "tested" a way to make the Hawk a multi-player mount XD Check it:
It looks like i'm only standing under her (which I was) but I was moving wherever she went like I was on the mount XD This is a great deal which you can get at Wall Mart in the U.S. for $29.


WALAWALAWALAWALA!!! ZEBRIFICA MADE REAL BABY!!!  Wizard101 actually does listen to their players ideas and this is proof to all you non-believers! Wizard101 has taken the idea of my good friend, Nicholas Lionrider and his world he created, Zebrifica, and they made a house, no not a house, a Mega Bundle out of it!!! Rumors be told that this is just a layout for the follow up world to Celestia! Anyways the new Bundle info is here and it is epic! Look at the amazing stuff it gives!
    (Item) Super Bundle Gift Card.png
  • Enormous Safari Palace
  • War Rhino Mount (Multi-Player Mount!!!)
  • Great Axe (Wand/Sword)
  • Safari Outfit
  • Pet Giraffe
  • Mystery Teleport Tapestry
  • 1 Month Sub or 5,000 Crowns
Note that this is the ONLY Multi-player mount in the whole game!!! I have gotten the chance to ride it a few times with Friendly, and Fallon Shadowblade. I chilled for a bit with Stephen Spritcaller and Fallon Deathslinger (Ravenwood Radio crew) at their friends Sun Palace. I also had the honor of going to my friend Amber Unicorn Flower's Sun Palace (which is what the house is called) and viewing her outstanding house! I also rode the Rhino with her and I saw her Hawk Mount. I also got to view  her amazing gear of the Hawk Rider and Safari outfit. Here are a few pictures I got of the Super Bundle stuff.
Me, Tom, and Swag

Me, Fallon, and my pet ;)

How's ya like dem apples! Pretty epic right! Well now, I had to share my joy with Nick XD We talked for a while about the epic house and Zebrifica and how he can finally stop creating fan art for it because Wizard101 has taken over that XD We still want to finish our epic music though ;) Anyways here is Nicks reaction when he first checked the house out XD


So remember when Wizard101 told us all to vote for them for an award? Remember when they said if they won they would give us a special Mystery Pet? Well they did! If you voted, check your email NOW between November 1st and look for an email from Wizard101 and it will give you a code to get the Mystery Pet. The Mystery Pet is........... A YELLOW ELF!!! This was a one time opportunity pet and only if you got lucky while playing KIFG you would have gotten it. Thanks KingsIsle soooooo much for this epic pet! I really am glad I finally got it (yea I never got it from KIFG ;) but it's pretty epic. 37 Pedigree with a Yellow Elf card at Adult, it's epic XD 

Since i'm feeling nice right now, lets say I give you the code to get this pet shall we ;) Just go to and if the code isn't there, put int he code audiencevotingreward and then you have yourself a Yellow Elf! It takes 2 hours to hatch so just be patient ;)


Now in all those pictures you have seen me not in my usual outfit but in a new one. This is my new epic outfit XD I felt it was time for change so I decided to whip up a new outfit XD I still have to get new level 60 gear to stitch with it or I might just wait till the next level cap and then stitch it with gear from there. This is basically my chill outfit and I wear it when ever I am not doing epic battles, helping epic friends, or doing epic farming battles in Hrundle Fjord. So here's another peak at my epic chill outfit XD


Now for my last part of this post. Gosh how much have i used the word E.P.I.C. in todays post lol. That should be the word of the day! This part you will love :) Random Contest!!!

So if you have read the whole post you can win this ;) To apply for the prize just send me an email with the title "Contest" to Ok so the question is, how many times have I used the word "epic" in this post. You have to count them all and then send me your answer to with the title "Contest". Note: This includes the usage of the word epic in the whole post except for the title and this last part of the post. So if the word "epic" is in the title or this last section of the post from "Now for my last part of this post..." it doesn't count in the counting. So go ahead and count away! I will be giving out:
  • 1 KIFG code if I have 3 entries
  • 2 KIFG codes if I have 5 entries
  • 3 KIFG codes if I have 7 entries
The correct entries will be put into a randomizer and the top however many winners (1, 2, or 3) and the winners will recieve a high tier code and will be given a shout out on this weeks episode of Spiral Live, Episode 6. It will go live this Saturday, October 22nd at 8:30 EST. You will be able to view it on the Spiral Live Blog or the Livestream.

Here is a drop down menu made from HTML created by me to the main info of this post, Mega Bundle Info, and Nightmare Packs.

Thanks for reading my post! Now go count your "epic" words and send your emails!

Hey guys! 

I just composed and wrote a Halloween Special song for SLBeats XD So before I go all chit chat on ya, let's move on to out Halloween Special-Single

SLBeats now has a new song which you can view on the SLBeats page here and it was written and composed by me (Blaze Shadowhorn). This is called the Rise of Morganthe because as you know, me and Nick are opening our own Academy next Sunday, October 23rd, 2011 at 7pm Eastern in Ravenwood Realm Scarecrow Area 1 and the history of the Academy which can be viewed here deals with Morganthe (and Malistaire) coming back to destroy the Spiral. So Morganthe is rising so we called it the Rise of Morganthe :P Well actually that's not the reason :P We just came up with it because it sounded good but that kinda made the template for our Academy History. Well so I will give you a preview of the Rise of Morganthe bellow but make sure to view the whole song on the SLBeats page.

Thanks for reading and enjoy!

Twins forever

I just read my "twin" Talon Thunderblade's most recent post and it meant the world to me :) It was on his Friend Awards and what he said for me just was very kind hearted. You can find his post here. Here is what he wrote:

A friend that is my twin.
Blaze Shadowhorn. Ok, this goes way back to June. Remember me meeting up with Ed? Blaze wanted to meet me as well. Blaze was on Wizard because it was the run with Thomas Lionblod, the Ravenwood Radio crew, and him. I will cherish that night because it was such great time. I got to add four famous bloggers (or at least to me). Edward got to add Friendly also! So one very late night, Stormriven, he asked if I wanted to farm with him. Although I had almost max gold, I still wanted to help him and save up drops to my shared bank so I could get more gold. Obviously, you need to talk about something when farming and battling because if you didn't there wouldn't be much fun. I started talking about my likes, which lead to more of hobbies. Turns out we had all things in common hobby/likes-wise. We eventually confirmed that we were twins. In fact I made huge a post dedicated to him here. Blaze and I really wanted to meet each other in real life. We thought it could never happen, but... We actually did meet up...twice. Yes, you read right, Blaze Shadowhorn and Talon Thunderblade met in real life at *insert city name park* It took forever to meet up in real life because it was completely unplanned. The conflicts were so desolating, but we made it through the end...twice. I talk with Blaze just about everyday. He inspires me, that twin of mine...

So with that I say, Talon, you will be my twin forever and I am glad to have met you :)

Blaze's Weekly Overview Post! (1st ever!!!) With Prizes!

Yo  yo you Wizzys! You are here for the first ever Blaze's Weekly Overview Post!!! I kinda took the idea from Nick but me and him are bros so he wont care :P Basically I am going to talk about this whole weeks topics in just one post!!!  Your probably like, Blaze... You never do this! You like your separate posts...
I feel like doing this because I am behind on my posts and this is to catch up lol.

Myth Questing in Marleybone.
So yea my myth is almost done Marleybone! Just have a few more instances then I am done. I am lazy to include pictures and more detail for this sub-post cause it's boring so onto the next sub-post!!!

Test Realm!!!
Yup the test realm is up! Although it doesn't involve new worlds or anything I still think it is pretty cool :) Here is what's being tested:

  • The Black Panther is now in the Crown Shop!!! 
  • Maps have been updated for game worlds (Grizzleim and Celestia)
  • New Housing Signs are available in the Crown Shop!
  • Ability to place items in water in Sunken Palace! (Finally ;)
So lets start with a rundown of all of them in order.
  1. The Black Panther I like because you can finally get it from the Crown Shop!!! I don't like it because I still have my 15 day rental :P 
  2. The Maps I haven't seen but I heard that there isn't much of a difference except for some new labels on them so that's cool I guess.
  3. The Housing Signs are where it's at! These are totally epic! You now don't have to worry about wondering who's house your in because you can now get signs that can say 107 different sayings! I definitely want this because it is easier for me to label my houses rather then, Sultans Palace, Storm House, etc. I can now pick from different signs! Some of them include "Gone Fishing",  etc. They can range from 500 to 1,500 Crowns plus they come in different designs for every world! Here are some pictures of them from Paige Moonshade:

4. Finally they let us place items in the water of the Sunken Palace! It has been frustrating everyone and this was the only reason  preventing me from getting one. It makes it a lot more convenient then the limited open ground that you could place items in.

Starting Wysteria Say What!
Yea you heard right! I finally got crowns and Started Wysteria!!! I am sooooo excited to finally be able to do the amazing story line and well thought out quests. I can't wait to get the Spiral Cup and finally display it in my epicness Trophy Area XD
Finally! Water Arch!

First Quest!

My Favorite thing about Wysteria... Flying Pigs :P

First Battle

Hasta Lavista Baby XD

Seem a bit Krokotopian or Sultans Palace to you?

Rude are we.

Yup... Keep slamming the really old tree... Nice.

Ooh. Water. How Magical :P
I also recorded a YouTube video my first in a while) and it's all about the Wysteria Schools. Enjoy :)

Halloweens a Comin To The Spiral!
*cue spooky music* Yea buddy! Halloweens a comin to the Spiral!!! Spooky Bob, Jack Hallow, and the whole crew are back to give you a scaring good time this Halloween. With new pets, epic quests and outrageous requests, you'll have a spook of a time :) See I rhymed :P Well to get started. The crews back and Spooky Bob is in the shopping district once again. He's got his spooktacular clothing items and this year he is back with not one, not two, not three but four pets!!! The Black Cat is back as usual but now we have the legendary pet which has been predicted, the Zombie Piggle! We also have the Nightmare, and Ghost Dragon. The Zombie Piggle does not come with a spell  but the Nightmare (which was already a hatchable pet) and the Ghost Dragon do! The Nightmare comes with Meteor Strike while the Ghost Dragon comes with Animate (Death Minion Spell). The black cat is 1,500 Crowns, Nightmare is 2,500 Crowns, and the Ghost Dragon is 3,000 Crowns. Here is a picture courtesy of The Diviners Lane.

Zombie Piggle (Found in Crown Shop not Spooky Bob)
I must say I spent a good 1,000+ Crowns on halloween items this year, not on pets (because I got Black Cat a few years ago by accident cause I thought it was gold :P) but on clothing! I got the Skeleton Head hat and the Scary Pumpkin staff :) They look epic with my costume XD I will be wearing it the whole month XD  How do you like the new blog layout! I think it's pretty epic XD
Yea that's me :) Epic header right XD I have  the cancer symbol in the bottom right corner because it is Cancer Awareness Month. Please do your best to remind people to support the fight against Cancer. 

I also hung out with my Twin today, Talon Thunderblade and him and I have the same costume!!! Except his is based off of his normal colors :P Check our epic picture from earlier XD 
That's totally Swagadelic XD Were totally the skull dudes of Nightside XD

So many ___-a-palooza's it's hard to count! Mount-a-Palooza, House-a-Palooza, Pet-a-Palooza, and now Gear-a-Palooza! Well let's start this off with some background info. Gear, Weapons, and Amulets up to 50% OFF!!!                                                     "Now through October 16th, Wizard101 is celebrating Gear-a-Palooza! If you like having powerful gear for PvP matches or customizing your Wizard’s total look - then Gear-a-Palooza is going to delight.

Ravenwood Radio Episode 50!!!
Congrats Stephen and Fallon!!! Ravenwood Radio just had Episode 50!!! They had soooo many prizes to give out. It was between 49 and 51.... Yea they gave out 50 prizes!!! This was a variety of prizes ranging from 750 Crowns-Epic and Mega Bundles! They had so many contest questions it was hard to keep track! Some of them were really challenging though. Anyways Episode 50 was a blast because Steve and Fallon had so many others hosting with them! They had Ditto, Icy, Friendly and a few others. Believe it or not I actually won a contest!!! I won the twitter contest. It was fairly simple. All I had to do was talk about Episode 50 and use the #RR50 hash-tag. I don't know what I won but I believe it is crowns. Thanks again guys for an amazing episode!!! May you keep broadcasting till episode 120!!!

Wyvern's Hoard Card Packs:
What's the deal with the Wyvern's Hoard packs... They have pros and cons. The pros are you can get teleporters, mounts, and amazing items from it. The cons are the low percentage it has of you getting it. I bought 8 Wyvern's Hoard packs and to my surprise I actually got 3 teleporters! Sadly no Wyvern mount :( I also only got 3 items of clothing and tons of housing items :P I want the Mooshu Well housing item :P Contribute to the cause, gift me Wyvern Hoards. ;)
