The Pirate101 Test Realm is live, and pirates are in full swing with stopping the Armada in its war against Marleybone... a war that Marleybone is losing. I sailed around and gathered information and pictures - you'll want to see them!

Pirate101 Marleybone/Aquila Information and Concepts!

Pirate101 Aquila

Well, it seems we're being teased by the MMORG website with an article that isn't really there yet... but they couldn't quite clean up the remnants fast enough. Turns out, we're not getting one, but two books, and two new worlds, confirmed as Marleybone and Aquila!

Wizard101 Video and Photo Log

The Wizard101 Test Realm updates have gone live, and I've been doing things left and right. Between a creative video of the brand-new Crown Shop house and photos of event questing and secret rooms, I'm giving you a look at what I've been doing in-game, and what's new in Wizard101.

Complete Marleybone and Aquila Images

Pirate101 Aquila

Well, all of the pieces have been released, and the two images are complete. After slicing, dicing, cutting, pasting, shaving, trimming, and event reinventing part of the image that was lost, I think I've finally matched up all of the pieces pretty perfectly.

Is "CrownsIsle" an Acceptable Term?

KingsIsle has long worked to please its customers, more so than most online games. So, upon the release of many packs, is it alright for players to label them as "CrownsIsle"? It has become a popular term on Wizard101 Central that even some of the well-mannered sort are spewing. Who is at fault here?

"Sloth Says" Contest Winners

For those of you who don't know, I recently had a contest in which readers told me one thing they'd like to see added or changed on the blog, using their "sloth straightforwardness" (in assumption that that'd be the personality of a sloth). One lucky user will be walking home with a Sloth Mount, and others with various codes for mounts and crowns.

Wizards vs. Pirates Rebuttals

It's one thing to state an opinion based on your views of Wizard101 and Pirate101, but to back it up is a whole other skill in itself. And that was exactly what I was watching for when it came to Wizards vs. Pirates. Not which game was better, but which game was better based on who was arguing for it. Was it the Wizards or the Pirates? Let me tell you now, if you think everyone sat back and kindly offered only their opinions, you've got a bit of reading to do.
