Secrets of the Spiral Grand Reopening Contest!

Hey Everyone!

Welcome to the brand new Secrets of the Spiral!  To celebrate the new design and improvements (which you can read about here) I am going to have a contest.  The winner will receive a $10.00 Pirate101 gift card.  Sound good?  Here's how to enter:
  • Find answers to the 10 trivia questions below.
  • Send an email to with "Trivia Contest" in the subject line. Include all 10 answers in your email.
  • Please also include your Wizard101 or Pirate101 name. DO NOT include any personal information!
  • All entries must be submmitted by 12:00pm eastern on Monday, April 15, 2013. The winner will be announced shortly after.
  • Everyone who answers all 10 questions correctly, and follows all the guidelines listed above, will be entered into a raffle for the gift card.
Here are the questions:
  1. When creating a pirate, what are the 5 causes of being orphaned, and which companion do you get for each cause?
  2. When did the Pirate101 headstart begin, and when was the official release date?
  3. Tell me the locations of any 3 training tomes in Pirate101.
  4. What classes are Bonnie Anne, Ratbeard, and El Toro?
  5. Which 2 worlds haven't been released yet, but have stormgates in the game already?
  6. Which pet is the reward for the Mooshu Mystic badge?
  7. Which worlds in Pirate101 have Prospector Zeke quests, and what items does he have you find in each world?
  8. How many skyways are in Cool Ranch?
  9. Which area in Pirate101 "snows?" (Looking for a specific place. There are 2 possible answers. Only give me one)
  10. Which Wizard101 pet/spell do you have to fight against in the Pirate101 version of Mooshu? (Boss fight)
*Edited to add* I have decided to let people have a second chance. So if you answer any of the questions incorrectly the first time, I will email you and tell you which ones need to be corrected.  Each person only gets 2 chances though, so make sure to take your time!

Good luck to everyone who enters!  And remember to have fun!

*Important Note*  Please ask a parent or guardian before entering this contest or any other contest if you are under the age of 13. Thanks! :)

Another NXP Event!

To celebrate the reopening of the blog, I am going to have another NXP party on Saturday, April 20, 2013.  It will be in Subata Skyway, in Mooshu. I figured we can fight Jade Fleet Ships.  All levels are welcome! *Note* I know this is a few weeks away, but I want to have it on a weekend so more people will be able to attend. :)

Also, from now on I will be scheduling one event a month. Weekly events were getting to be too much for me. Life is pretty busy right now.  These events will most likely be on Saturdays.  I may occasionally schedule additional events throughout the month, but it depends on what is going on.

Anyway, here is the info for the NXP party:

Date:  Saturday, April 20, 2013
Time: 12:00pm eastern
Location: Meet up in Avery's Court, then port to Subata Skyway
Realm: One Eyed Jack

Bring some friends or come on your own.  Either way, we will be sure to have a ship-sinking good time! Hope to see you there!
