It's been an exciting recent few weeks for Pirate101 players! We’ve brought you a new game update that contains a bunch of fun content and challenges. More about the new update and other happenings from around the community in this month’s newsletter below.
The truly exciting theme about this month’s upcoming events and game content is that much of it is being directed by the community itself. Keep watch on the game’s Twitter page @Pirate101 for regular event updates as the community sends them to us!
Rogue's Gallery: Mickey Dugan
Name: Mickey Dugan
Occupation: Town Cryer
Home: Skull Island, Avery's Court
Weapon of Choice: The truth!
Mickey Dugan grew up as a humble orphan in Jonahtown. A fixture of the busy docks and taverns, Dugan had a knack for overhearing all sorts of interesting tales from distant parts. The young Pelican made a name for himself spreading news and rumor throughout town, often for some small reward. Dugan caught wind of some particularly juicy gossip from Gullet, but talking about it earned him the wrath of the Frogfather. Dugan fled Jonahtown on a merchant ship from Marleybone, and ended up on the isle of Dogs.
In Marleybone, Dugan befriended the publisher of a popular news sheet, Richard Outcault. Starting as a delivery boy, Dugan made his way up the ranks to fully-fledged rumor monger, hunting down stories for his boss to print. History repeated itself when the rumors Dugan helped publish embarrassed an important Peer of the Realm; Dugan left Marleybone in a hurry and made his way back to Skull Island. Upon his return he found employment with Captain Avery, who had need of someone with an ear to the ground. To this day, if something important happens in Skull Island, Dugan is sure to hear of it, and is eager to pass on the news.
Let’s take a quick look at some of the neat things that have happened this past month:
