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.

    How all ye landlubbers doin this fine evening?! Santa Baar is ready to head back into Skull Island to continue celebrating yuletide! Before he leaves he has looked over all of your entries for the Holiday Companion contest and has picked the winners! We want to thank everyone for entering and wish we could give everyone a prize. Without further ado......
 
1st Place:
Crazy Ryan Upham
Companion Name: Big Red Nosed Moodolph
Info: The Big Red-Nosed Moodolph companion is a Musketeer. He uses his canon to shoot ornaments at the enemies. His ornament supplies are on his pants for quick access (It never runs out lol). Something special about him is that each color ornaments does different things too not just damage the enemies.
 
Red Ornament- Decreases enemies attack
Green Ornament- Steals enemies health
Blue Ornament- Decreases enemies defense
Yellow Ornament- Increase teammates' defense, attack, etc.  within range
 
One of his special talent is the "Skate Kick". Which can only be used at enemies within range. Does high damage. (Secretly a swashbuckler too)
 
Second Place:
Calamity Pixieshade
Companion Name: Sugar Yum Fairy
Info: The Sugar Yum Fairy is a Privateer Class companion and has a permanent ongoing ability "Yum, Yum, Yum"- (not one you have to select) - any allies ending their turn in the adjacent 8 squares next to the Sugar Yum Fairy will recover 10% of their health at the end of round.  (Unless defeated - sorry she can't bring people back from the dead.)
In addition to Mighty Charge  the Sugar Yum fairy has one additional epic ability called - Mischievous Pixie - The sugar yum fairy can target one opponent and move them to any square of her choosing.  (Bosses like Moo could be immune, but eh, I like this plan)
 
Third Place:
Loveable Flora
Companion Name: Morgan Snowfitte
Info:
Class: Swashbuckler
Some cool talents:
Frenzied Flurry
Bonus attack if you hit (60% chance), up to 5X per round

Fourth Place:
Clever Jasmine
Companion Name: Snowball
Info:
Class: Privateer
Looks like the snowball pet from wizard101 but is bigger and is on your crew! Some of his special moves is to "snowball strike" into the enemies and it even has snow fall around it like the pet version. Another exclusive move this companion would have is "build a snowman" which summons 3 snowman minions in 3 spots on the board to help you fight.
 
Thank you everyone who entered! Big thanks to Kingsisle for letting us hold a contest this holiday season! Hope you all get what you want for Christmas. Stay safe and see you in the Spiral!
