Ten Little Pirate Boys (Contest)

Yo ho, yo ho, a Pirates life for me. 

Recently, I had to read the novel And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie for English class. It is a murder mystery book which really makes the reader think and overall, it was an outstanding book. You may be asking yourself, what is Blaze getting at? Let me tell you. There is a nursery rhyme in the novel that talks about 10 little indian boys who end up getting knocked off one by one. I decided it would be interesting to write one for Pirate101. The original nursery rhyme is called Ten Little Indian Boys but mine is called Ten Little Pirate Boys. Needless to say, it will take some thinking but there will be a contest at the end.

Pirate101 Head Start!

Four days ago, Pirate101 was released to all those who played in beta, bought a bundle, or who got a membership. As I walked into Avery's room, I was astounded as to how many people I found in there! It was sooooo cramped! It was so nice to see all the new players and see how everyone was so excited to play Pirate101.
 I also changed my flag colors to Black and Gold and made my symbol Horus, the Hawk God in Egyptology. I loved the color choices and I got some new gear from Fin Dorsal which has really good stats. Anyways, enough about me, let's talk about the head start as a whole!

Beta Prize Announced!

Did you play in Pirate101 Beta? Well if you did, then you are able to get this limited edition one of a kind eye patch! Anyone who played in beta can wear it as there is no level restriction and it is classified as No Trash, No Sell, and No Auction (yes Shared Bank) so you will never accidentally delete it.

Another amazing part is that it comes with a card with the Rouse healing power! This will definitely come in handy to all of us Beta Pirates in tough situations. Did you know that the star symbol on the patch will never be replicated on any other eyepatch in game? EVER? Kingsisle said that it will let everyone know that you played in Beta.

I really love this outstanding and classy idea by Kingsisle and I must say, we should be thanking them for all their hard work in making Pirate101 possible so thank you Kingsisle! It was a pleasure to play in Beta and I am sure all the Beta Testers will agree that you did an amazing job making it happen.


See you in the Spiral!
