P101 Worlds Week

Skull Island
Skull Island
When Pirate101 was released, it added many more worlds to the Spiral. In addition to that, it kept many Wizard101 worlds such as Krokotopia, Marleybone, Dragonspyre and a few others. So far, we know Mooshu is a full world while Dragonspyre you are not even able to dock at. All you can do is battle there. So what worlds do we know of so far and what does the post title mean by P101 Worlds Week? Keep reading to find out!

Support Tales of the Spiral

Hello readers!

As you know,  Tales of the Spiral has grown very big over the past 2 years. I decided to make a badge that you can all put on your blogs etc. to show you support TotS. I have seen other bloggers do this and I figured why not!


All you have to do is copy and paste it on your blog to show you support TotS. I really appreciate all of you who have helped TotS grow and have shown your support and this is to honor and recognize you.

The past 2 days, I have hit 60,500 views as well as 175 followers! A huge milestone for TotS which I would not have been able to do without the support of our amazing community. Here's to you!

Cheers and a bottle of Yum for all!

Remember The Fallen

Eleven years ago, two airplanes crashed into the World Trade Centers in New York, one airplane crashed into the Pentagon in Washington D.C., and the final airplane crashed into a field in Pennsylvania. Many people died that day and today we honor the fallen.

Please take a moment to think about the lives lost which included the victims on the planes, the first-responders, the firefighters, medical specialists, and all the men and women who risked their lives to save the lives of others.

I would like to take a moment to say a special commemoration prayer.


God, full of compassion, Who dwells on high, grant true rest upon the wings of the Shechinah (Divine Presence), in the exalted spheres of the holy and pure, who shine as the resplendence of the firmament, to the soul of
(mention his Hebrew name and that of his father)
who has gone to his [supernal] world, for charity has been donated in remembrance of his soul; may his place of rest be in Gan Eden. Therefore, may the All-Merciful One shelter him with the cover of His wings forever, and bind his soul in the bond of life. The Lord is his heritage; may he rest in his resting-place in peace; and let us say: Amen.


Never forget this tragedy that occurred. 
God bless the fallen, God bless the lives of the living, and God bless the United States of America.

Thank You.

New Jaguar Mount!

(apparently this post never posted earlier this morning when it was supposed to... weird...)

Yesterday, Kingsisle released the newest mount in Wizard101. Introducing, the Jaguar! This mount, compared to the other feline mounts, is only 6,500 crowns for the permanent mount! A 7 day rental of it is only 2,000 crowns! Like most mounts, it has 40% increase speed and it looks pretty epic!



I for one am not the biggest mount collector (especially since I play with crowns and I have little to spend) but I suggest you all go out and get it! It is really cool looking and I feel like it is going to be a huge hit especially since it only costs 6,500 crowns. 

See you in the Spiral! (possibly on this mount ;P)

Happy Birthday Wizard101!!!


It's Wizard101's 4th Birthday!



Happy Birthday to the most amazing, well-rounded, supercalifragalisticexpialidocious MMORPG ever!!! Wizard101 tops WoW, LOTRO, LoL, and any MMO out there and will always be #1 in my book and statistically as well.

To celebrate their birthday, Wizard101 is giving everyone a free Krokotopian Boat housing item. To be honest, I have always thought of how cool it would be to have one like there was in the Marleybone Museum. 

IMPORTANT: You can only redeem the code from now - September 4th. To get your Krokotopian Boat, click on the button bellow.



Thanks Wizard101 for 4 years of amazing game-play and everything you do for us.

See you in the Spiral!
