I'm official! A thank you to those who have supported me and a bit about me.

This won't be a major post, no theory or anything like that. Just a thanks to those who have supported me for a long time and some fun facts about me. First off, the big news. I'm an official Pirate101 Fan site now! I wasn't always aiming towards this, at first it was just a side project to show my love for these games. However as I worked more on this site and got help from other site owners and made more friends I decided I would try to make this site official. Even if I got rejected I would have been fine with it, I could always keep my site up and keep posting for those who read. I never want to be a "community leader". I just want to make posts and play the games I love. Anyways, A thank you to those who have supported me. Not going to name names because I easily forget names and know others have supported me but can't remember their names for my life. However there is one exception. I'll save them for after the thank you. 

To all those who have supported me: I thank you. Honestly I'm amazed I got as far as I have. I've gotten help from all over the community. The help was from some well known people and others not so well known but help is help and in my eyes all of those people are equal. I count every person that takes a look at this site as someone who helped as well. Right now I'm climbing my way up to 30k views which couldn't have happened without this amazing community. Looking back on working with others to help make my site look better and get suggestions on how I should do certain things makes me happy. That being said if you ever want help with your site, a shout out on twitter or something like that feel free to ask! (as long as its family friendly) But to make this short, I thank all those who have supported me, from those who helped spread the word to those who simply clicked on the link to a Pirate101 fansite. Thank you.

Now for that exception. Nordic Champion. I'll leave a link to her site "here". Unfortunately she left the community so she probably won't see this but I need to say it anyways. I owe a lot to you. You helped me a ton by telling me what I should and shouldn't do to make my blog look good, gave me great advice, supported me from the start, talked to me when I just wanted a friend to talk to, promoted me, and most importantly, inspired me. I was inspired by other bloggers and fans site owners yes, but you inspired me to do what my mission is, do theories to make people look at the game more and appreciate the work put into it. I'm sad you are gone. Too be honest, I know you aren't coming back. Even though I know that i'll always wait for you just in case because thats what friends do. Thank you, for everything you have done. I wish you luck in life and wherever it takes you.

Now for a little bit about me. Don't expect anything fancy. Just going to do a small list as a get to know me.
1. I'm pretty antisocial. 
2. I love watching anime. 
3. I collect golden chickens in Pirate101 
4. I've played Pirate101 since near launch, I applied to beta but got rejected and got the news late it went live.
5. I like to read. I don't generally like modern books, I like classics. My favorite author is Jules Verne 
6. I prefer classical style music over all others. However I prefer modern classical style music. Like video game music for example.
7. While I play Pirate101 a lot, I do play other MMO's. Although I don't play many single player games.

Cya in the spiral!

Wizard101, the hidden race of gods.



So, first off sorry this is coming out late. I've been a bit busy. But anyways, onto the theory!

So, we all know there are 2 god groups in the spiral. The Aquila immortals and the Titans and those who made them. But what if I told you there was another group of gods? Ones now extinct. I'm talking about the celestials (celestians?) from Celestia! I will explain my reasonings on why they were gods, if not sub-gods. And no none of them are "Because they are called Celestials!" Although that is where this idea originated. But after thinking it over it makes sense!

What do we know about these mysterious beings? I'm going to give a short list and explain if I can why its on the list then explain how it adds up to them being gods.

1. They had advanced understanding of the universe to the point where they could harness it. This could be a way to achieve godhood in the spiral since we have seen it happen a few times. In Pirate101 Cao Tzu had a such a great understanding on how the spiral worked that Marco Pollo made a map to El Dorado, A world that you have to get to by sailing but its access point never showed twice in the same place and was always moving. And Cao Tzu had a religion made after him, Caoism. It was replaced by moodism, but Cao Tzu still lives, and it can take a long time for a religion to take over a world. This means Cao Tzu probably had an extended life if not an immortal one despite him being a normal goat. So it stands to reason the Celestials could be the same.

2. They have been proven to live exceptionally long lives. Although I can only think of one case it still proves a point that ties in with point 1, they can live longer than any normal being. I'm talking about Ptolemos, in the trial of the spheres, the only living Celestial we see but still looks young and is powerful. He is also of the moon school which further backs point 1.

3. We know they summoned the Storm Titan to stop the shadow. This is important because an isolated world like this knew about the Titans, figured out how to summon them on their own, and it was an important enough world for Morganthe to invade. No need to explain it further but think about it nevertheless. 

These all tie together, to show they are powerful, important, and have a great understanding of how the spiral works. These could easily be points that could be interpreted as them being gods.

I know this was a short and late post and I apologize. Since I'm becoming increasingly busier in real life and long theories aren't very good for the reader or the target audience I'm going to try to stick to short to the point theories from now on. I might do a long theory here and there but it won't be often and I apologize. But I hope you still continue to enjoy them! Cya in the spiral!

The factions of Skull Island outfits!

So ya, 1, this is late and its my bad since I thought I did it already. And 2, sorry wiz players, the wonders of the spiral wiz version is going to have to wait. Anyways onto the post!

Did you ever want to dress up like a troggy, or a shark, maybe a crab or warf rat or possibly just a pirate? No? Well too bad! I'm going to show you how to dress up and blend in with the factions of Skull Island. I won't be going over what you need just what the costume should look like (I will go over the weapons though!) Lets begin!

1. Warf Rats.

What weapons you need: Warf rat daggers
What it should look like: It should be rather plain. Warf Rats usually don't dress all fancy so neither should you!
Can all of the outfit be bought at the bazaar? Yes! All of this outfit is actionable and cheap!

2. The Crabs.

What weapons you need: Underdog's cleaver
What it should look like: It should have an armored look, you are a squishy human in the ranks of armored crabs so you will need some armor!
Can all of the outfit be bought at the bazaar? No. Sadly the cleaver is a no auction drop in Marleybone, so you will need a membership or crowns to buy the area.

3. Cutthroat.

What weapons you need: As long as its a big and simple sword you should be fine. I used Xiphos, a sword from Aquila. 
What it should look like: Something like this, simple but not warf rat simple. The robe and boots should be this style but the hat is up to you. 
Can all of the outfit be bought at the bazaar? Yes! This is a pretty standard outfit, you will find lots of this style under different names so look at your options before you buy!

4. Troggy.

What weapons you need: Sadly there aren't any primitive shooty weapons so this is restricted to melee and witchdoctor. You will want a troggy weapon to sum it up. They can be found easily enough at the bazaar.
What it should look like: Something primitive. It can be fancy but don't make it out of a ton of cloth or metals. (I cheated on the boots since there is no options I could find)
Can all of the outfit be bought at the bazaar? No. Don't worry no member is required! All the gear can, its just the accessory. It can be bought by Jolly Roger who sells this mask.(You can find him in Avery's Court)

5. Pirate.

What weapons will you need: Anything bought at Remington's Steel would work (The weapon shop in Skull Island) or some weapons from Jolly Roger. 
What it should look like: Do I need to explain it? Piratey!
Can All of the outfit be bought at the bazaar? Yes! Plain and simple yes it all can!

I hope you enjoyed! Here are some questions you all might be wondering. 
Are you still doing theories? Yes I am. I'm just thinking of some good ones.
Are you going to do more wiz content? Yes! I plan to do a wiz theory next week but plans could change. Hopefully I can though!
Thats all the questions I think you might have. If not comment below and I'll try and answer!
Cya in the spiral!

The 7 wonders of the Spiral. Pirate101 edition

Just a fun little post, I remembered there are 7 worlds in Pirate101 so I thought I would do a little travel guide to each worlds wonder, man made or not! Lets begin!

1. Skull Island: The great Volcano.




The great volcano can be seen from all over skull island, it is home to the waponi watermoles who worship the volcano as a god and rage ware with their neighboring watermole tribe, the Nui. If you are brave enough to enter be warned, more than just watermoles inhabit this volcano...

2. Monquista: The Monquista City Library.




The Monquista City library holds many texts both forbidden and not. The Library is a marvel of architecture and art which never ceases to amaze. Rumor has it the library played an important part in crowning the new King and Queen of Monquista...

3. Cool Ranch. The Traveling Medicine Show.




The Traveling Medicine Show is famous across Cool Ranch. Holding such attractions as buffaloons and Sky Serpents as well as real Bison Warriors, you can see why so many flock to the event when it comes to their skyway. However the main attraction is the Tyson fight, brave and foolish fighters challenge this legendary boxer for fame, glory, and a little bit of gold...

4. Mooshu: Chef Motomori.


Chef Motomori is known all over the spiral as the best chef in existence. He has a knowledge of dishes and ingredients from exotic lands and is highly requested by famous people. He is probably best know as the Iron Chef of Subata... 

5.  Marleybone: The Isle of Fetch Boardwalk and Beach.




The Isle of Fetch was a popular resort town before the war. You could rent a room at Walkies hotel and then spend the day on the boardwalk playing games and riding the Ferris Wheel or build sandcastles on the beach and swim in the skyways. Unfortunately such activities had to be put on hold because of the war, for various reasons...

6. Aquila: The great city of Troy.




The city of snakes, Troy. It is an architectural beauty and an impenetrable fortress. It took 1000 ships full of Aquila's finest warriors to take this City. Even though its been plundered and partially destroyed its walls and palace remain in tact and still look stunning. Only time will tell if the Eagles will lay waste to it yet again further destroying its beauty...

7. Valencia: Sivella, the island of scholars.




Sivella is home to some of the most brilliant scholars in Valencia. The scholars here seem to ignore technological studies and focus more on the arts and literature. Currently the island is under Armada control. Who knows how much longer this will be a place for knowledge on all topics...

I hope you enjoyed! This was just a fun little post (probably will do wiz next week!) Cya in the spiral!

Cool Ranch and the American civil war.


In honor of the 4th of July, i'm doing a theory about the USA. If you are wondering how that relates to these games then read the title again because it explains it all! If you haven't played through Cool Ranch then to put it simply, its the wild west. So, what is there to explain? It basically parallels the real world right? Well yes and no, who won the Cool Ranch civil war hasn't been thoroughly explained, all we know is its over.

 This line gives us all we need to figure out who won the war. We need to look at Captain Foote and see if we can figure out which side won and which lost. For reference, here is a picture of him.
Now, It's easy to think he was on the confederate side,seeing how he is titled renegade and has a brown outfit but lets take a closer look. His uniform is obviously very fancy and expensive, as well as his gun. The confederates in real life usually weren't like this. They usually had very simple clothing compared to the Union. So we see a bit of a mix. So what do we do now? We look at those connected to Foote. The obvious would be Masterson but lets look at Colonel Church instead, who we know is connected to Masterson and therefore connected to Foote.
Something look off? Well it should. The uniform is green. But whats similar between them? No not the gun or hat. I'm talking about the shoulder pads. They are both blue. This could mean which side they are on and uniform color could mean the rank. So does that mean the Union lost this war? My guess is yes.

 Right now the Cool Ranch Union is stuck in haunted skyway, a small fraction of what it once was. This is why we don't see Cool Ranch soldiers anywhere else except Renegades here and there. Law is entirely local and in places like Santa Pollo there is no one to stop new governments from taking over. My best guess is The Renegades won the war but at such a great cost they couldn't keep hold of what they won and the Union is so small they are struggling to hold on to one island. Right now Cool Ranch is in a state of a lawless power struggle. With the war over and the 2 sides unable to do anything desperadoes roam free and the law has to stick to their own islands. Meanwhile if any group is powerful enough they can take control of an entire skyway without much opposition.  

To sum it up, the Union lost the war but they took the Renegades down with them to the point they also can't do much. So as a result Cool Ranch doesn't have any law anywhere. That's all for this post and I hope you all have a good day! Cya in the spiral!
