Crowns Galore!

Hello Pirates!
 
    Kingsisle posted a new blog post the other day all about crowns! In their post they explained all of the ways you can earn crowns for Pirate101 and Wizard101. The First way you can earn them is by doing the daily Free KI Games Trivia. Each successful trivia you complete snags you 10 crowns! (You can do this 10 times a day)
 
    Next on the list is "Invite a friend"! If you know someone who may want to play or is planning on playing Wizard101 in the future as a member, you should invite them to the game and when they sign up via your special invite, you both can earn crowns! Neat huh?
 
    Recently in the games, they have added another way to earn them. You can earn 10 crowns each video ad you watch in the game. (To turn this feature on you need to go into your settings and change the "earn crowns" feature to "on". You will see a "earn crowns" logo near the crown shop icon and you just click and watch ads - Until they run out, and you will have to wait for new ones to be uploaded.
 
    The last official way to earn crowns is by entering W101/P101 Fan site contests! Your in luck because KI just sent tons of crown codes to all of the fansites in the community. So be sure to look around for them and enter enter enter! :) Below you will see how you can earn crowns from Pirates of the Spiral and Wizards of the Spiral.
    Be sure to keep checking back to Wizards of the Spiral and Pirates of the Spiral. We will be holding contests and Raffles for crowns. Also make sure to follow me on twitter @jcentral1 - I will be doing some contests on their as well!
 
See you in the Spiral!

A Tale of 2 Chests

Yarrrrrr!
 
    Lenny the Leprechaun is back visiting PoTS! He has gotten into some serious trouble though already! While exploring Skull Island, he got his chest of gold mixed up with some scrip that belongs to Squid Vicious. After visiting the black market he took the wrong one and Squid Vicious thought he was trying to take it, so he sent his minions after Lenny.
    He is now being held in the depths of the Black Market until all of Squid's Scrip is back in his possession. Lenny promises to reward the Pirates that help him. He had bought some items from the black market that he stashed in his magical pouch. Leprechauns have the power to make crowns grow on trees too, so they are known to be very wealthy in the Spiral.
    Lenny also knows the secret way to the Smugglers Arena that he promises to tell one lucky pirate. So are you interested in helping the little leprechaun out? He has places to go visit like Wizard City and he cannot do that being trapped in Skull Island. If you are interested check the details below! Yarrrr!
 
Rules
    The Chest of Scrip that Lenny had taken outside of the Auction house has been stolen by a nefarious group of Pirates after he was captured by Squid Vicious. It's your job to track down these pirates and get the scrip back. Each Day for the next 5 days at 5:00 PM EST (Saturday I will be doing them at 4:00 PM EST), we will use Lenny's Magical Powers to reveal where one of the Pirates is hiding. If you manage to find them first you win that days prize!

Happy Community Manager Appreciation Day!

Yarrrrr!
 
    Today is Community Manager Appreciation Day. We are lucky enough to have Amazing CM's who actually care about their gaming communities unlike some of the other games around! Tom and Leala do an amazing job keeping the Wizard101 and Pirate101 communities in check while having a great time!
 
    For example they just recently started doing these interactive events called KI Live where they do a webcam live stream recapping new content while giving out some prizes to lucky viewers. If you want to watch them you can check out Kingsisle's Youtube Channel with them! Just wanted to give a quick shout out that I am very thankful for them. Major Props for Ex Greyrose Kiersten Samwell as well. She is now a dev on the W101 team.
 
    Cannot wait to see what Tom and Leala have in store for us in the future. I'm sure they will do a wonderful job. :) Make sure to give them a shout out today if you can. You can reach them on twitter at @Lealaturkey and @FriendlyNecro.
 
See you all in the Spiral!
 
PS: To everyone who lives on the East Coast , be careful a big winter storm is approaching, stay safe and have fun in the snow!
