The Spiral Showdown Concludes

After just over two months we finally have the answer to most important question in all of Pirate101. Which NPC would get the most votes in a popularity contest held on Twitter and Discord? Well Pirates, we have the answer. It's Ratbeard! Thanks to everyone that participated, and if you missed out dont worry. We'll be giving you plenty of more options to arbitrarily vote on different Pirate101 topics.

Another Unobtainable Item

Recently while spawning fights for players during a testing session, Hawkules discovered an item that, like Kanes’ Robes, exists but is unobtainable to players. What item shares the stage with the gloriousness that is Kanes’ robes? LO PAN'S mustache, of course! Gaze and be in awe at its glory!

A New Developer Has Appeared

Kingsisle has hired more developers to keep the good times going! This group of new folks includes a dedicated developer for new playable content in Pirate101. They're still getting up to speed here at the office, so we won't share too many details yet. Keep an eye out for the next KI Live though!


In our last episode, we featured two of the most prominent devs in the Spiral! You ask Artie and Ratbeard your most hard-hitting design questions! Pirates looking to play their favorite fights should be on the lookout for Isleplays, as Hawkules is spawning fights from all around the spiral. Keep an eye on the Pirate101 Twitter to learn when the next stream will happen. Here's a link to our Twitter.


There are few pig legends in this world. Clownegade has given the one and only LEGENDARY Nina Pig a new animation! If you click the link to see this animation, we highly recommend checking out the rest of their profile. They've made a couple versions of Ninja Pig, and we cannot wait to see what they do next. Check out their animation test here!
