Summary
     After speaking with Meowiarty in the Glass House Prison, he helped translate mystery markings for us and we learned that there is someone in Valencia who can help us against the Armada and Kane! This mystery man, known only as G, said only to look for Caligostro, but first we have to get to Valencia. Avery informs us that, if we use the Avernus Stormgate again, he knows where to get travel papers that allow us to go to the other Skyways. The only problem: the papers are in an Invader Fortress in Marleybone. Wonderful.
            After seizing the papers from the fortress near the White Cliffs of Rover, we quickly make our way to Valencia. We head for the leftmost Skyway and pass the blockade without much trouble. Once there, we head to Valencia City and start asking around about Caligostro. We find that he is a rouge monk who was recently arrested for high treason. However, he escaped before the Armada could take him to jail, and now is rumored to be hiding out with the Resistance. Looks like we’ll be making some new friends shortly.
            We soon end up finding the Resistance’s Headquarters after helping a Unicorn Resistance soldier, Mercutio, who joined our crew. We talked to Caligostro, who reveals G has been locked up in an Armada Prison, along with several other key resistance members. We end help supplying the Resistance with weapons to lead a jailbreak. It takes a while, but we get ourselves into a key position in the attacking force. Time to blow this popsicle stand!
            The jailbreak was a success! We managed to get into this floating fortress, the Unbreakable, and bust out many a revolutionary. While searching for G, we ran into a vault containing two things: an orange windstone, and our old “friend” Phule. We had to fight him to get past, but we did it and secured the windstone to boot. After that, we found ourselves in the recesses of the prison, where we found G – the famous architect Gittio di Bonedon. He revealed that, while he did not personally know Kane’s weakness, it had been found by an old friend of his – none other than Erika the Red, holder of the next piece of Pollo’s map. She was last seen in Krokotopia, ancient land of mystery. Gittio gave us his old ship, a Krokotillian skiff, so we could “blend in”. After escaping the prison, we met up with the Resistance one last time, then set sail to Krokotopia.
            Upon arrival in Krokotopia, we immediately docked in the port of Rosetta. We poked around for info on Erika, and found out she was recently deceased and interred in a temporary tomb in Alexandria. However, Alexandria was taken over by the recently resurrected overlords of Krokotopia, the Tuts. We decided to try to sneak into Alexandria. Unfortunately, we failed and were nearly captured by the Pharaoh, Krokopesh. After barely making back to Rosetta with our lives, we had to find another way into Alexandria.
            We found another revolution! It seems the Tuts enslaved Krokotopia’s native race, the Manders. The Manders have always been a more submissive race, but recent wizard action at the center of Krokotopia have convinced Manders to start standing up for themselves. With the help of some non-Tut Kroks, the Manders began revolting against their slavers. The six leaders for this branch of the revolution decided to give us tests to see if we could help them. After doing numerous supply gathering and fighting tasks for them, they said they could trust us. They revealed they have planned a massive assault on Alexandria, and they want us to help out. One of the leaders even joins our crew to support us!
            After fighting back hordes of Tuts (and accidentally destroying the lighthouse), we reach the Great Pyramid where Krokopesh rules – and Erika is buried. We delved into this dungeon, hoping it would be easy. We were wrong. Krokopesh’s personal army, along with his queen, opposed us at every turn. Eventually, before Erika’s marble tomb, we faced Krokopesh himself. It was a long, hard battle, but we broke his power over Giza Skyway and freed all the Manders. However, Krokopesh had been working with the Armada, and he had already let them into Erika’s tomb. Although Erika could now be sent back home to Grizzleheim, her map piece was long gone. But all was not lost. In a secret compartment under her tomb, we found Erika’s will, which told of where she hid the secret to Kane’s defeat. She hid it in Polaris, home of Napoleguin and his army. How do we get there? Avery may know. Back home to Skull Island it is, then!

What do you think will happen next? Entries (Part 2)

By: Destiny Mistshard
_____________________________________________________________
 
     Though I haven’t finished the main quest line yet, I have a feeling that Phule might have something for us. I don’t know why, but I've always felt like he has a bigger part of the story than we’re aware of yet. I’d LOVE to get an Armada Companion at some point, I just think it would be so cool to have one of them reformed to our side! I think it would serve Kane well to see that even his created army doesn't respect him.
    As for bosses that we’ll fight…the possibilities are endless! I have a sneaking suspicion that before too long we’ll be making our journey to Albion, which I’m really looking forward to! There was a particular quest I just worked on where Bonnie Anne has a side-bar conversation with Ratbeard about her being from there and that’s what got me wondering if Albion was next! I could be out in left-field but I hope not. I've always been intrigued by Celtic Lore.
    From what I've heard about Albion, it’s Scottish themed and I think that’s a great opening for a Nessie themed ship attack, or pet, or even companion! A little cheesy I know but who can visit Scotland without a cheesy Nessie souvenir? Not this Pirate, I assure you! I think that would also be a great time to have a Radical companion that was quest given. Those boogers were tough to defeat on the first few go-rounds and would be an awesome addition to any crew!
    I’d also love to see where Bonnie Anne originated and perhaps help her to make amends with what family she has left like we did for Sarah Steel. And seeing KI’s version of how Stonehenge came to be might leave an opening for a CL tie in. I’m not as confident on that assessment, but think that seeing little aliens in P101 and hearing Ratbeard’s reaction to them would be priceless. Like I stated before, I haven’t even gotten out of MB yet, so I could be WAY off. But I do have an imagination that takes me to some pretty awesome places and like to take every opportunity possible to show other people what I see in my head.

    I think we will go to Valencia to find info about toymaker. The best way is to ask the librarian in Valencia. The librarian will tell us about toymaker home. Of course, we the pirate had to find our way into the center of Valencia without getting caught by the Amanda. Some boss we might get to fight is the queen of Amanda. We might learn that the queen of Amanda is created based on toymaker lover and Kane maybe based on toymaker lost son. On the storyline, we can recruit toymaker son in order for him to tell us the whereabouts of toymaker and help on our journey to fight Amanda.

    What I think will happen next? Well, I think we going off to Valencia o' course! But before going there, we goin' to Krokotopia, but just a chapter o' course. The Kroks are goin' to reveal a hidden message in the markings but first, we gotta help 'em with the Twisted Manders, they are rulin' Krokotopia, and we gotta save the Kroks, every class gets one Krokotopia-themed companion (Manders, Kroks and a Krokomummy). Then we get 3 chapters on Valencia, where we go off to Cagliostro, and after lots of search and helpin' the people there, we get to know the person that is goin' to reveal the information we need, but Phule appears and takes the person away, there it starts our race agains time to find the person now hidden in Valencia.

Wizard101 Special Tournaments!

 
    While playing in some of the new Wizard101 Tournaments, I thought of a great idea! Do you know how the names of each tournament are named after certain NPC's in the game? "Ambrose's Duel" "Gamma's Duel" etc..? Or Dalia's Skirmish like pictured above?
 
    Well in these "Special" Tournaments, the person the tournament is named after is IN the tournament! You may have a duel with a professor or another NPC which would be a computer and not a real person playing it. Would you beable to outshine one of the Ravenwood teachers or other Characters in their own tournament?
 
    If these types of tournaments were ever to go into the game, I would see them ever so often and not all the time. Sort of like a special event. Maybe once a month? These tournaments would have unique drops that are connected to the NPC the tournament is named after and you possibly battle. (For example, Dalia's Wand, Amulet, Ring, Athame etc... *very rare drops* Only obtainable from the Tournament.) 
 
 
    The NPC's want to have some fun too! ;) I think this would be a neat addition further down the line to the current tournament dynamic. What do you think about it? Wouldn't you love to show your Professor who's the real master of the class? ha!

A new Companion
By: Leesha Moon
_____________________________________________________
 
After speaking with Avery he tells us of a skyway in Valencia, one of which we have never visited before; the Seville Skyway, a skyway of modern architecture and technology of the Armada this is where we will find Caligastro . The only way to reach it is through the stormgate in Hamamitsu Skyway.

We must obtain a Brown Windstone to travel through the Stormgate, the only one known to none-armada knowledge lies in the Heart of the Armada Fortress in the outskirts of the Westminster Skyway. After obtaining the windstone and enter the stormgate, we immediately find ourselves in a waste land, ship after ship litter the Mooshu to Valencia Passage. It is there when Bonnie Anne points out the Ship: "Oblivion" the most feared ship in all of the armada, Kane's own invention, only Armada Ships can proceed past it.

We return back to Avery, delivering the bad news. Avery sends us to talk to Diego Montenegro an Armada Fugitive hiding on Skull Island. We arrive at his house where we find him under attack by Armada Troops. We quickly join the battle. After saving Diego from his impending doom we talk to him about acquiring an Armada Ship. He tells us that there is only one way we can get one and it's not going to be easy. He sends us to the librarian in the Sivella Academy Library to find a way into the "Ship Factory" and steal an Armada Ship.

After Stealing the Ship you are allowed permission to proceed past "Oblivion" and your journey into the Seville Skyway Begins.....

You are identified by the Armada Troops as "special cargo" and taken to the Island of Barca. You are sent into the Chapel by an Armada Troop where you meet an old friend; Captain Steed, he informs you that "M" from Special Branch contacted him whilst he was visiting Rajah in search of a rare Tea he heard that cured Old Age. His mission was to infiltrate the city of Cadiz and gather intelligence on Kane's Inner Circle posing as a Sivella Academy Tutor helping the Armada design new weapons.

In the Seville Skyway you will venture to the City of Madrid, Island of Barca, The Beaches of Santa Cruz and the Grand City of Alicante. Steed sends back word of the "Grand Design" and what it is capable of.

You meet an engineer who has 5 Armada Troops held captive, he re-programmes them to do your bidding...Little do we know, there's more that meets the eye with this engineer.....

Companions:

Swashbuckler: Armada Battle Angel
Privateer: Armada Strategist
Buccaneer: Armada Marine
Musketeer: Armada Musketeer
Witchdoctor: Armada Witchdoctor

All Classes: Captain Steed.
