Contest Winners!

Yarrrrrrr!
 
    Pirate101 has been very busy lately with their Test Realm release of Valencia 2 and Book 15! Have you guys tried it out yet?? Its really fun and should be on the Live Realm soon enough. But I have been reading all of the entries I have received for this contest and my Wizard101 one, now its time to release the winners entries, and codes be sent.
 
    Just want to thank everyone who entered, and for many unique entries! Maybe the devs will read them and get some ideas for future companions! Good luck and see you peeps in the Spiral! Below are the winners in no particular order!
 
Winners
 
    Michael Walker
Companion Name: Skully Scarper
Where Pirate was rasied: Marleybone
Class: Witchdoctor
Epics: Mojo Blast, Doomspell, Mojo Echo, Cowards Bane, Witch Hunter
Talents: Spooky, Resistant, Spirited, Rough, Lucky
 
Scarper is a cross between a Rat and Skeleton so you can say he is a Zombie Rat. This companion was the result of the Armada's doing. His village was once a peaceful place and everyone was happy until the Armada invaded it and destroyed everything and killed everyone. (or so they thought) Skully was left for dead but was found by Vadima and was taken under her wing. With her powerful Hoodoo Powers she revived him as an undead to help her students defeat the Armada!

Bob
Companion Name: Uni-Golem-X
Where Pirate was raised: Marleybone
Class: Buccaneer
Appearance: He looks like a unicorn, but with robotic features and weapons such as laster eyes, magical machine guns, rockets, and a blade similar to a light saber. Due to the shear power of his attacks, and strain on his body, he takes time to recharge. However he can still pack a punch while recharging with his sword skills.
 
Powers: Vengeance Strike, Blade storm, and relentless. He also has the ability to fly with his rocket powered jet pack, but has limited movement of only 3 squares. Also has hold the line. However, he also has Musketeer as a secondary class. Thanks to this, he's capable of making ranged attacks and protect himself from charging enemies from a distance.
 

Epics: Valor Fortress, Reckless Frenzy, Healing. He also has three unique musket attacks. These are, 1. repeatedly hit specific target within range three times without missing. 2. hit any target on the battlefield in view once, critical guaranteed, 3. Hit 9 Squares (similar to artillery) with damage and also leave fire traps.
 
Additional Storyline: At first, Uni-Golem-X is an enemy who remembers nothing of his past. He believes his only purpose was to serve his masters, the armada, and complete their every elite plan. However, upon fighting your pirate he regains some of his memories from familiar fighting stances. It is slowly revealed that he wasn't just a simple unicorn but was a longtime friend of your father who parted ways after he grew tired of the sea. Tears fill his eyes for the first time in years and he begins to show emotions. He leaves the armada and joins your crew after proving he is safe enough and mentally stable.

Unfortunately, due to his very bad temper he ends up arguing with one of the anarchist leaders so he's being held a prisoner in his lair. After Bonnie Anne finds out about his mishaps, she asks us to return to Marleybone and free her cousin Alister. Once we've freed him, he joins our crew.

Sarah is the first companion in the game that is a human!! She is a new recruit to help fight the armada but Avery thinks you can help her show the way around.

She wears a necklace that is very important later in the story when visiting El Dorado. What secrets Is she keeping from you?

Anne Radcliffe
Companion Name: Tomooe Gozen
Where Pirate was raised: Mooshu
Class: Swashbuckler
 
My pirate (Anne Radcliffe) was raised in Mooshu, and she would love to meet Tomooe Gozen, known far and wide in Mooshu as a hero samoorai. While most unusual for a female to become a samoorai in Mooshu, Tomooe took on the task to defend her family and maintain family honor. Sadly, the upheavals in Mooshu with the illness of the Emperor led to conflicts that left her home in flames and her family destroyed. Refusing to serve the dishonorable, no matter how powerful they might be, Tomooe wanders as a ronin, a masterless samoorai, but her staunch code of morals and her willingness to aid the needy have earned her considerable respect, and retained her the more honorable title of ‘samoorai’. Those actions however, have earned her many powerful enemies, and the number of fortified towns that she can enter without an arrest attempt on her are becoming fewer and far between…
 
So, like Kobe, Tomooe has a very strict sense of honor. When drawing her, I used Kobe as my primary inspiration, with adaptations from the softer Cow females KI has designed (such as Moolinda Woo). While somewhat feminized, my Tomooe looks a lot rangier and tougher than the gentle female Cows seen before (well, she has had a tough life!). However, I gave her beautiful hair (as Tomoe was supposed to have), arranged in an elaborate style around a headdress (inspired by illustrations and live interpretation of Tomoe Gozen in Japan).
 
Tomooe can use the samoorai’s traditional weapons of the katana and wakizashi, but I rather fancy her using the naginata instead, as we don’t have any companions using that weapon as of yet (but KI has the animations for it, as some of our Pig enemies in Moo Manchu’s Tower use it).
 
As far as her class, since she is a samoorai, Tomooe would certainly be a swashbuckler, and as such would have a choice of desired swashbuckler epics such as riposte, first strike, flanking, and the like. If she uses a katana and wakizashi (instead of a naginata), an interesting new swashbuckler epic could be ‘double sword’, a distinct two strike attack.
 
Futhermore, she’s earned a lot of experience in her travels, which could justify a Privateer ability in her repertory. I think ‘Fighting Fervor’ might be appropriate. This could replace one of the standard swashbuckler epics.

Our Next Storyline Companions Contest!

Yarrrrrrrrr!
 
    Howdy Pirates! Kingsisle has been teasing the next update to Pirate101! (Be sure to check out other fansites here for their sneek peek teaser and contests!)  Its dubbed Valencia Part 2, and will continue where we last off after Aquila! In Celebration of it, they have given the Fansites some codes to give out with some Contests! Keep reading below to find out how you can win on our site!
 
    Remember in the beginning of the game when we had to answer some questions? How it effected our stat boost and a companion we met at the Presidio? Well It has been said that where you picked where your pirate grew up also will effect a 2nd companion we meet in the future! For this contest you have to create a companion that you think will be an option. Below you will find a guideline of what you need to come up with!
 
Name of Companion
Where was your Pirate raised? (Skull Island, Marleybone, Grizzleheim, Mooshu, Or Krok)
What does he or she look like?
What Powers or Epics can it learn?
(Remember, the more details the better!)
 
    Remember you can add in a picture of it if you want! Some think that where you chose where your pirate was raised, (SI, MB, GH, MO, KT) that it will be a creature from that world. But it could also not be to mix things up! For ex my Witchdoctor was raised in Krokotopia, does that mean the companion that will join my crew in the future will be a mander? or perhaps a krok lizard? The possibilities are endless!!
