Journal of a Dead-Eye Pirate - Chapter 6: The Monkey's Paw

Ahoy pirates! Today began my journey to find the Monkey's Paw! Just to catch everyone up, I'm searching for the Monkey's Paw so the Opposition has some leverage over the Holy Monquisition. If I help them, they will sign my trade papers for Captain Avery! My journey for the Paw begins in the sewers, as I attempt to break into Monquista City for information on where the Claw is hidden.

I had to fight my way through the sewers to activate all the levers. Eventually I found a ladder that led straight up to Monquista!

Once I got inside, I put my monkey of a disguise on!

I found some information which lead me to Diablo Cut, a place where the Monkey's Paw supposedly dwelt.

 What a lovely place for a royal claw to be hanging around!

I ran into some trouble looking for the paw, however...

Who knew plants could be so evil!

Lots of undead, too. It was one interesting cave...

I finally found the room of the Monkey's Claw! However, it was a test. There were hundreds of paws throughout the room, and I needed to pick the right one or die! Naturally, I chose the only one that looked like a Monkey's Paw... And I was right!

So Donkey Hotey wished for a million bananas... Sigh...

Nevertheless I managed to get the trade papers signed! Now it's time to head back to Captain Avery! 'Til next time Pirates!

Journal of a Dead-Eye Pirate - Chapter 5: Monquista

Ahoy pirates! What good news I have! I finally managed to find a Windstone that allowed me to go through the Monquistan stormgate! Now, I am in Monquista, attempting to take part in an opposition against the tyrannical Holy Monquisition. This epic quest started when I first arrived in Monquista City, and I spoke with the King and Queen at their palace.

I wasn't given a very warm welcome until they found out I was the one who captured Gortez!

The King and Queen gave me one last job, to take Gortez to a prison called Zenda. But it turns out that it was a trap! The guards at Zenda attempted to defeat Gortez and my crew! Despite what I did to Gortez, he helped me defeat the Monquisition Guards.

Gortez sent me to speak to another friendly prisoner within Zenda.

Her name is Queen Eleanor, and she is one of the many ex-queens who once ruled Monquista. The new royals are tyrannical, and she needs my help to start a civil war. 

I spoke with other queens who weren't so fond of my "hairless-ness," but when I returned to Zenda Queen Eleanor told me of her plan to stop the Holy Monquisition. The Monkey's Paw.

She then went and told me to speak with Don Kehotay.

And that's when things got interesting... Don Kehotay had been truned into Donkey Hotey by the Monkey's Paw! Now not only did I need to find the paw to start a civil war, but I needed to help turn Donkey Hotey back! 'Til next time Pirates!

New Wizard101 World - Azteca!

New Wizard101 World Announced! Azteca!

Hello Wizards! Today is a great day indeed for students of Ravenwood! The next world has been officially announced, and will be released to the Test Realm some time this week! Here is the official article from

"Wizard101 has been on the scene for several years now and is one of the most innovative and successful family-friendly MMOs out there. Recently, Austin-based KingsIsle Studio launched its second title, Pirate101. Clearly KingsIsle is doing something right.

With Pirate101’s launch, however, small waves of concern have begun to ripple throughout the Wizard101 community. ‘What will happen to our game?’ ‘Are all of the developers now working on Pirate101 and leaving just a skeleton crew for our game?’

These are all fair questions and things that need to be answered. I had the distinct pleasure of talking with Wizard101 Producer Leah Ruben. Right out the gate, and without even being asked, she told me that Wizard101’s team is big, thriving and committed to keep the content coming for ardent Wizard101 players. In fact, Leah told me, the team is bigger now than it was at launch.
“Rest assured,” she said. “We’re still going strong.”
If the numbers are any indication, KingsIsle still has a winner in Wizard101. There are over thirty million registered players and the metrics indicated that over twenty million unique visitors per month check out the W101 site.
Going strong indeed!

What better way to prove just how committed KingsIsle is to its flagship title than with the announcement that Wizard101 will be seeing another world launching this year! That’s right. We have the inside story about the second major world addition to Wizard101 in 2012.
Called “Azteca”, the new world is one filled with dinosaurs. You read it right: DINOSAURS! Azteca is packed with thirteen separate zones and filled with quests enough to help players reach the astonishing new level cap of 90, up from 80 after Avalon’s release in May.

Azteca also comes with new epic high-level class-specific spells, and new Astral spells. The W101 team has gone back to making flashing awesome cinematic spells that have wowed players forever. But what makes these new spells even more incredible is that they will be themed to Azteca’s environments.
Players will have a dual purpose in Azteca: Morganthe is making an appearance there complete with her minions and monstrous hordes. Players will face off against the Hungry Dead, Morganthe’s Umbra Legion, and the dread Comet Xibalba. And if that’s not enough, we were teased with this comment:
“Somebody will be coming back to assist Morganthe. Players will recognize this character.”

What? Who could it possibly be? Leah wouldn’t tell me but rest assured that it will be surprising.
The secondary purpose players will be working to accomplish in Azteca is the rescue of the world’s residents: Aztecosaurs, Avians, and Jaguars. Aztecosaurs have been living underground for ten years, the same amount of time that it was thought that the Azteca world was lost to the ages. But with the threat of the Comet Xibalba, they have resurfaced and send a messenger to find help from others in the Spiral. The Aztecosaurs send out a Quetzal Messenger with their request for assistance and a key to reopen the world to other residents of the Spiral. They will need all the help they can get as the Messenger comes to request aid chased by Morganthe’s hordes.
Leah assured me that there will be plenty of things for players to do. There will be new epic Azteca-themed gear and housing decorations to find as well as the chance to face off against one of Wizard101’s meanest baddies, Morganthe…and her mysterious accomplice.
The best part about this entire revelation from Leah and KingsIsle is the announcement that Azteca will be placed on the Public Test Realm later this week! It may seem like short notice, but the team wanted to give players a completely unexpected surprise and boy have they!

It seems abundantly clear that KingsIsle is as committed as ever to Wizard101 with its unprecedented release of a second major world in a single year.
Will you be checking out Azteca? Let us know in the comments!"


So what are your opinions on Azteca? Who is Morganthe's mysterious new ally? So many questions that need answers! I will see you in the test realm later this week!

Journal of a Dead-Eye Pirate - Chapter 4: The Gold Monkey

Ahoy pirates! It is I Dead-Eye Dustin! I have successfully recovered Captain Gunn's treasure, and now I am encouraged by Captain Avery to complete another daring task! He wishes to set up a trade company with the Monquistadors, but they're not very... open... to the rest of the spiral. It is my job to present some of Captain Gunn's treasure as gift to the Monquistadors in request for a trade company. When I got to Puerto Mico, a Monquistan Territory on Skull Island, things didn't exactly go as planned... The majordomo was not fond of my "outfit" so I had to get another one.

The majordomo gave it to me himself!

Aren't I stunning?! These clothes are definitely my style. I finally was dressed well enough to speak with the Governor!

He wasn't very enthusiastic about my trade offer, apparently. So he sent me to do some things that would prove my interest in helping the Monquistadors.

I spoke with Bishop Hidalgo, who sent me to the Isle of Doom to bring back the long lost Gortez home. Apparently he was sent their to investigate something known as "The Gold Monkey," but he never came back! So it was now my duty to get him back. During my journey for Gortez I fought many vicious enemies!

I managed to defeat every enemy that dared encounter me! Eventually, I found Gortez...

He wasn't exactly what I expected, but he did put up a good fight! I took him as my prisoner and returned to Puerto Mico!

When I returned, however, there was new governor! Apparently the first wasn't fit for the job... This new governor had no idea what I had been doing, so she told me to deliver Gortez to the Holy Monquisition, and speak with the King and Queen of Monquista. What an interesting change in events this has been! I'll write more when I arrive in Monquista! Until next time pirates!


Wondering about the missing story in between the this and the previous chapter? Stay tuned for information on the The Lost Pages of Dead-Eye Dustin, a new contest coming soon!

After some consideration, and feedback from readers, I have decided to discontinue the use of "Pirate Talk," as some Pirates felt it was difficult to read and hard to understand the story. If you prefer the original text, don't be afraid to contact me at! All opinions will be considered!
