Ideas for Blind Mew

May 21, 2009
Dear Blind Mew,

I know you are the writer for the storyline in Pirate101, and I have to say, I love it all. But I keep noticing that several companions that are attained from side-quests either do not have promotions or have promotions for gold. I think it would be a great idea to have the players design promotion quests for side-quest companions like Ridolfo Capoferro, the Yakooza thug, the Magnificent Seven companion we attain from Cool Ranch and the like.

Unless you are already working on that. Then ignore everything from the above and below.

It's very fun learning more about the companions' backgrounds, and we see them coming to an end a lot: Subodai eventually becomes a Khan of the Amber Horde, Sarah Steele reconciles with her family, Ensign Emmett achieves the title 'Commander Emmett', Dead Mike avenges his former captain, Lucky Jack Russell finds himself becoming an agent for the Royal Navy time and time again, Ratbeard confronts Captain Fowl, Old Scratch faces the Dark Crawler, etc.

Wait. I'm rambling. Let me stop for a second.

So wouldn't it be nice to see characters like Iago the rogue receive redemption, or Ridolfo Capoferro become a major leader in the Valencian Resistance, or even see the Magnificent Seven fight enemies new and old? It seems that even before Wyatt Chirp died, they had a lot of skeletons in the closet. I love writing, so this question instantly popped up as soon as I realized 'there are a LOT of side companions...what are their tales?' Personally, I'd love to see Tricky Vinny go up in the Frogfather's Syndicate since he is the Frogfather's nephew...perhaps from frog pirate to frog capo?

I'd love to hear what you think!
