is there any part of pirate101 that you felt just merited a puppet show? I love the puppet shows. some people find them annoying and skip them but I think their entertaining and constantly replay them. but what parts, locations, or events do you think needed a puppet show? I would personally have liked a puppet show on Valencia. I feel like there was very little explanation of it in the first place, not to mention no puppet show from that world. I jut felt like you got there, you quested for a couple hours, then you were done, which frustrated me because Valencia was one of my favorite worlds. I was just wondering some things about Valencia like;
1. why are there no factories or junk yards where the armada are constructed?
2. what is the purpose of the machine that constantly runs at the heart of Valencia?
3. if the armada are truly evil, why are they disregarding all the unicorns and what not?
4. where is kane at the time?
5. I already said it, but WHAT IS THE MACHINE? I mean that thing is so cool! its incredibly large and obviously must have some purpose. it could have easily be made into a dungeon!
we didn't come to Valencia to discover lore or anything but I really wish that there had been a puppet show, possibly narrated by catbeard because he's awesome! meow meow!
did anyone find other sections which they felt merited a good puppet show? post some stuff. i'd like to see what everyone thinks

The machine is the armada factory where armada soldiers are constructed. Not 100% sure though.

A puppet show I'd like to see is how the Armada turned evil. What if Kane has a horribly scarring backstory that made him want to destroy all pirates? Think of Dr. Doofenshmirtz from Phineas and Ferb.

the puppet show introducing the armada already shows this. the valencians made too many clockworks and they got out of control

Wow, that's a lot of Valencia questions. I should point out that the Valencia "Book" is actually a Skull Island Book. That Book is also the only one so far that has two puppet shows (the Catbeard one is really just one show in 3 chunks) - though other Books might have multiple shows in the future.

Just about every question you ask has the same answer; Aragon isn't even the tip of the iceberg that is Valencia. Aragon is an empty, backwater, frontier Skyway that was never very populated or special to begin with, but in recent times has been almost emptied thanks to the Armada's ongoing beautification project (see Granchia for details). There's a surprising amount of lore you can pick up there - if you do all the Sivella side quests, you'll come away with a good idea of what life is like in a world the Armada rules, and what their ultimate vision feels like (without many details of what it is). That was the entire goal of the skyway. That, and to leaving you wanting more. Judging by your post, I'd say mission accomplished.

I assure you, as far as Velencia goes, you ain't seen nothing yet. In fact, our next trip to Valencia will address questions 1 and 3 in great detail. As for 2, 4, and 5, well... I gotta save something for later.

Storywise, think of Aragon Skyway as a bigger version of the Presidio - you have a job to do there, you sneak in, you sneak out before your enemies crush you. You can't just walk into Mordor at level 13 (well, maybe Frodo could, but it took him a loooooooooong time to get there. And, like your pirate in Valencia, he didn't stay very long.

Now, as to which story points need a puppet show but don't have one, I can think of a few. I'm hoping that we can fill some of them in as time goes on...

One gear to rule them all, one gear to find them
One gear to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them
In the land of Valencia, where the shadows lie...

So um Blind Mew, are you suggesting that Kane is Sauron, the armada are his orcs, somehow we will find something (like a gear from Jack Morgans amazing thread of mechanov) that we have to destroy to end Kane, and the pirate is Frodo Baggins, and our crew are the fellowship of the ring? And you blind mew, are Gandalf no doubt.

Like maybe I don't know duck holiday? I don't have him but I can see it online. I know allot of people who have him want to know his past. And speaking of companion PS's (puppet shows) we could have one for each class. Companion of the seven. I want to know more about billy the kids past. Also one about the aztec Dino's. I hope I'm not the only one who wonders what happened to them... I mean it's obviously not the same place as in wizard101.

Hahaha! Brilliant, G. G.!

Ahem. I see Captain Avery as Gandalf, but Blind Mew is a good candidate too.
Heck, maybe the in-game Blind Mew will sacrifice his life to save us from some menacing creature. I could just imagine Blind Mew yelling, "YOU SHALL NOT PASS!"

I would most definitely be ROFLing at that reference, while being sad that he is gone.

Cheers!
