The Time To Be a Monster Has Arrived!

Hey everyone!

I'm making this post to let you all know that Kingsisle officially launched its long awaited app Rise & Destroy yesterday!  It is now available worldwide from AmazonGoogle Play, and iTunes.  You can see more details on the Rise & Destroy official website as well as on this press release.

I had a chance to download the app on my tablet and play a little and it is a lot of fun.  You get to rampage around as a monster smashing buildings and squishing humans.  Who wouldn't want to do that? :)

To celebrate the launch, Kingsisle is having a special Rise & Destroy episode of KI Live today at 4:00pm CST, so be sure to check that out as well! Here is the link: KI Live Twitch.  Until then, have fun being a monster! See ya soon! :)

Halloween 2015 Contest Winners

Hey Everyone!

My Halloween Bunkhouse Decorating contest ended yesterday and I have chosen the winners.  Thank you to everyone who entered!  I really enjoyed seeing the entries, and I hope you all had fun decorating!  Here are the winners:

First Prize - Bloody Wesley Xavier
Smuggler's Cove House & House Space Elixer
Octoberpus Pet
5,000 Crowns

Every night around midnight, a faint organ sound can be heard drifting throughout Skull Island. It is said that if you follow the haunting melody, you may be lucky and find a lost chapel and it's one solitary inhabitant, a lone specter that haunts the grounds. Who, or what, is he? What does he want? Why does linger? No one can say.

Second Prize - Canny Kestrel Armstrong
Smuggler's Cover House & House Space Elixer
5,000 Crowns

This is my Haunted Halloween Circus. My spooky black tiger Lady Shadow asked me to recreate her childhood home in the circus. Like all circuses, no matter what the season, there is always something or someone scary tucked away into a tent. In this case it's the circus boss, Mister Chuckles. Lady Shadow loves Halloween.

Third Prize - Alex
Octoberpus Pet
5,000 Crowns

Hello and welcome to the official Haunted House of the year! Wait till you learn about our little buddy Fang the ghostly crab as he explores this house! The owner has put in many Halloween decorations this year! Some of these include some pumpkins,  Jack-o-rugs, and cobweb rugs! To make this haunted house extra spookier, the wall is completely covered with cobwebs and spooky masks! There is also some withered trees and a creepy fire! This haunted house will be sure to give you a fright!

Runner up - James Morgan
5,000 Crowns

Congrats to everyone who won, and thanks again for entering!  All of the codes have been emailed.  I will be giving away more codes on my twitter in the coming week, so be sure to watch.  Thanks for reading! :)

Pirate101 Challenge #5: Companions Stay Dead


It's time for another post in my "10 Ways to Make Pirate101 More Challenging" series.  I hope everyone is enjoying these posts so far, and that they are giving all you pirates ideas for some new ways to play the game!  Let's get started!

The object of this challenge is to complete the game using companions only until they are defeated.  See below for further explanation.


1.  Start out playing the game as you normally would.  As you gain companions, keep them available in your crew.

2.  Once a companion is defeated in battle, either assign them to a task or place them in your house for the rest of the game.  You may no longer use this companion.

3.  If at any point during this challenge you run out of companions, you may either consider the challenge over and resume playing as normal or choose 5 companions to add back to your line up and continue the challenge.

4.  You may continue leveling any companions that have been defeated and removed from play.

Tips and Tricks

1.  Keep all your companions leveled up as much as possible.  You never know when you might need to use one.

2.  Maybe wait to recruit side quests companions until you absolutely have to, that way they are starting off at a higher level.


If you continue leveling and promoting companions that have been defeated, you may still use that companion in its promotion quest.  Not for the main quests though.


1.  Treat pets the same way as companions and if they are defeated in battle, unequip them for the rest of the game as well.

2.  If all of your companions are defeated, continue questing by yourself as far as you can or until you recruit a new companion.

That's it for this challenge.  This is another one I am thinking of trying out, mainly because I have the same few companions I rely on for most of my questing and I think it would be a fun challenge to be forced to try out new ones.  Have you ever tried anything like this before? Comment below and let me know! Thanks for reading! :)

Pirate101 Challenge #4: First Mates Only

It's time for another post in my "10 Ways to Make Pirate101 More Challenging" series.  I hope everyone is enjoying these posts so far, and that they are giving all you pirates ideas for some new ways to play the game!  Let's get started!

The object of the fourth challenge is to play the entire main story with just your first mate.  This doesn't mean you have to choose one companion to use the whole game.  You just have to complete all battles with only one companion per battle.


1.  Give all your companions except your first mate tasks, or place them in your house/bunkhouse. This will allow you to enter each battle with just the companion that is assigned to be your first mate.

2.  You may use any spell minions or doubloon minions you have.

3. You may also use a pet.  However, the pet must start out at level 1, like your pirate and level up accordingly.

4.  You may switch out your first mate with any other companion at any point during the game, even before every battle if you want to.

5.  For companion promotions, make sure you set whichever companion you are promoting to be your first mate.

Tips and Tricks

1.  Keep several different companions with different classes and abilities leveled up so you can
switch them out for different battles.

2. Complete as many side quests as possible.  This will allow you to max out your companions to a higher level and let you equip better gear.

3.  Get the best gear you can for your level.

4.  You might play with trying out different talents on your companions than you normally would. For example, maybe focus on defensive talents more than offensive.

5.  Definitely train a second class on your pirate.  This is something I haven't had to do with any of mine while questing normally, but for this challenge, it would help a lot!

If you decide to complete side quests for this challenge, you may use the normal amount of companions.  Only for the side quests though!  Once you go back to questing on the main story, be sure to start using just your first mate again.  Companion promotion quests do not count as side quests for this challenge.


1.  To make this challenge easier, use 2 companions instead of just one.

2.  To make it harder, use only one companion for side quests as well as main quests.

3.  Try using the same companion as your first mate for the whole game.

Good luck if you try this!  I would love to hear about your experiences!  Just comment below.  Thanks for reading and see you soon with Challenge #5! :)
