A Warm Welcome

Hello there Wizards and Pirates alike!

It is I, Blaze Shadowhorn.  As many of you may have noticed, this past year I was inactive as I had retired from the Kingsisle gaming community and moved on to focus on school and other things. The thought of coming back has been in the back of my mind for quite some time. Sadly, I knew what my priorities were and decided to focus on my schooling and real life. A little over a week ago, I was looking through my laptop photos looking for a photo to post on my friends Facebook for his birthday. I came across something that brought back grand memories. In a sub-folder hidden away, I found a recording my mom made of when I co-hosted the first episode of my retired Podcast – Spiral Live alongside co-host Nicholas Lionrider. My, did it bring back memories.


The next day, my mom and I were talking and she told me the following, “Do what you want in life. You will only find happiness if you truly are passionate about something.” This got me thinking. Wizard101 was something that I had played since 5th grade. If you didn’t know, I’m currently in 11th. Nearly 7 years of my life I have spent playing both Wizard101 and Pirate101 and I realized that this is one of the only things that has always given me unconditional happiness. If I was ever down, I did a few quests and caught up with many of you. I was telling my friend last week that I have truly made the best friends throughout my years of playing Wizard101 and Pirate101. Throughout the past year, I kept in touch with some of you and would check up on the news once in a blue moon but I’ve missed being a part of the community and I have realized that this is what I need to do. Blogging, questing, and just hanging with all of you makes me happy and I so I decided to make a return to the community to be with all of you. You may be wondering what is new or going to change on the blog. Well I’ve got a ton of great ideas so keep reading to see what’s new!
