Let me first say that I have never been good at math... Wednesday to Wednesday is a week... right? Therefore that should be 7 days... right? Therefore that should be 7 posts.... right? Wrong.

Seven Days of KI (Day 3): A Wizards First Friend

April 21, 2017 Blaze Shadowhorn 0 Comments



When Tales of the Spiral was in its infancy, I didn't really know anyone in the community. All it took was me hitting 100 posts, throwing a party and because of this, a never-ending friendship was born.

Everyone has a story when it comes to how they first entered the Spiral. For me? The first time I saw Wizard101, I didn't really think it was the game for me... Boy was I wrong.

A Blast from the Past

April 07, 2017 Blaze Shadowhorn 11 Comments



Wizards of the Spiral, guess what??? I'm baaaaaaack >__^

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Blaze Shadowhorn (I go by Shadowhorn or Shadow) and I was one of the original Wizard101 community members and fansite owners back in 2010. Man... That makes me feel old.

The reason you might not know of me is because I took a three year hiatus from Wizard101 to focus on my career in esports which I now do full-time (learn more about here).

I've been wanting to come back to the community for years, the issue was I didn't have the time commitment or financial stability to put this amount of time into running a fansite, but guess what? Things have changed. As of this day, Tales of the Spiral's doors are once again open for the community to enjoy!

Why Did I Come Back?
The thing many people don't know about me is that Wizard101 was actually my first online game where I interacted with other individuals. If I had never created my first Wizard, Blaze Shadowhorn, on May 9th of 2009, I wouldn't be working in the gaming industry today. The Wizard101 community helped mold me into who I am today and gave me the foundation to expand upon.

I came back because I want to give back to a community that has given me so much. If it weren't for all of you, I can truly say I don't know where I would be today so thank you for the seven years of support and friendship, you guys are the best and I hope I can bring you lots of amazing adventures and content in the days to come.

Oh... and parties to. That was kind of my thing back in the day hehe.

What to Expect?
While building my career in esports over the past three years, I have also transitioned into building myself up as an internet personality.

Entertaining YouTube videos? I got that.
Crazy Funny Twitch Streams? I got that.
Super Hot Fire? I spit that.

Actually though, I've got a lot of amazing ideas and segments that I've been brainstorming and can't wait to put into action. For now, in addition to blog posts covering all things Spiral, I have a new content segment called Twitch Travels.

Believe it or not, I'm still on my first quest in Avalon... Yeah I'm that behind. Level 73 Thaumaturge here folks!

Twitch Travels is exactly like what it sounds - a segment where I'll stream my travels throughout the Spiral and you guys can join me for the ride and help me out in chat! It will always be streamed on my Twitch channel (I'm hopefully going to setup a schedule for this soon) and then the recorded episode will be uploaded to the Twitch Travels playlist on my YouTube channel.

It's going to be loads of fun and I know you'll enjoy it.

What's A Huge Celebration Without a Giveaway?
For anyone who has been in the Spiral for more than four years, you probably know that I love having giveaways and contests. This special occasion is no exception and for that I've got my biggest giveaway I have ever thrown on Tales of the Spiral... ever!

Are you ready? Go enter!

Tales of the Spiral's Re-Launch Giveaway!

The Celebration Continues!
Similar to giveaways, I love my parties. If you've been in the Spiral for more than four years, chances are you've been to either one of my Fifth of July parties or celebration of the sorts. This time, it all goes down on April 15th, 2017. Will I see you there?





Everyone, thank you once again for all the support over the last seven years. If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be where I am today and so I want to give back and share my passion for Wizard101 with you. Here's to a many great adventures ahead.

See you in the Spiral!
-Shadowhorn
