School is out and summer has finally arrived in the Spiral! We’ll be switching PvP seasons during the month and welcome everyone to jump into ranked PvP to have some summer fun. You may also find a new surprise or two in the Crown Shop this month.
We hope you had a good month in Pirate101 last month! Pirates De Mayo was a lot of fun and we had a great time playing through the Zeena quest with you on KI Live! (You can watch it here in case you missed the fun.)
Thanks for playing and read on for more fun and fan information for Pirate101.
Rogue's Gallery: Zeena
Did you know Zeena is a companion that all players can have on their teams? If you haven’t yet discovered Zeena, you may want to venture into Aquila and take upon a series of quests given by Frontinus in Achaea. Zeena is a powerful warrior with the ability to create a rain of fire that adds fire to squares on the battle board. Frontinus will introduce you to the conflicts that are afoot between the Centaurs and the Amazons, but little else is known of Zeena’s background . . . until now. Read on for more information!
Weapon of Choice: Bow
Occupation: Queen of the Amazons
The daughter of Cyrene, a famous Amazon queen, Zeena has always been known for her hot temper and her love of battle. Just after Zeena came of age, her younger sister Aella was accidentally killed by an Aquilan Legionaire in a territorial skirmish. Overcome by rage, Zeena demanded that her mother launch a total war against the Eagles. When Cyrene opted for restraint, knowing that a war with Nova Aquila was unwinnable, Zeena renounced her family and her kin and departed into the wilds, terrorizing the Aquilan frontier as a raider and one-woman army. Zeena regrets the dark deeds she did in this period to this day.
The impetuous amazon was brought back to the path of heroism by none other than Hawkules, who encountered her on his legendary journeys and convinced her that fighting for the common good was a better way to honor her sister’s memory. After a series of heroic adventures where she helped the common folk of Aquila stand against the threat of Vultures, Cyclopes, and other terrible foes, she returned home to Themiscyra, humbled.
Overjoyed at her daughter’s return, Cyrene welcomed Zeena and restored her status as crown princess. In the fullness of time the crown passed to Zeena. Zeena ruled the Amazons justly, though her temper remained just as quick as in the old days. After she realized she had been tricked into a destructive war with the Centaurs, Zeena decided that perhaps another period as a roving hero might bring her new wisdom. And so it was she joined a brave young pirate captain for a new era of high adventure.
We received a fair amount of screenshots this month and would again like to remind you that you can hide all your screen elements by pressing Control+G. Keep sending them in, and don’t forget to hide your interface! We’d love to feature your screenshot in the future.!
Our Screenshot of the month has a special Pirates De Mayo flair! He may look a little nuts (or coconuts) with his Mighty Steed Mount and Glowing red eyes, but Generous Blaze Jackson sent us a great shot of his pirate in Mariachi attire that we could help but fall in love with. It’s a great shot in an isolated part of cool ranch, and he looks like he’s just waiting to jump on the next mine cart that rolls by. Thanks for the cool screen shot!
We’re always on the lookout for great new screenshots! As a reminder, please only send us your best three screenshots every month to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to participate. For more tips, check out this blog post with helpful screen shot hints.
"....Then I sent that ignoramus troll out on a snipe hunt and this freshly cooked meal was ours."
Gandry: *Gulps* "Um.ixna on the ignoramus...uh - a olltra!"
A couple months back, Dead-eye Scarlet sent us a hilarious picture that we had to share with you. She noted that, “I’m here to ruin your ability to take the Armada Seriously.” Hmmm . . . dabbing Bishop? Selfie-taking Kane? Kitty-hugging Deacon???
Yes. Yes you did, Scarlet. (How cool would it be to own a limited edition “kiss the chef” Rooke apron? We think . . . pretty cool.) Thanks for sending us your art, Scarlet!
