Looking for some fun this holiday season?! Then set your sites on Pirate101’s Yuletide festivities this season! Be on the lookout for the 12 Days of the Spiral (13 if you’re lucky, Pirate). This grand occasion only occurs once a year with new loot to plunder, new deals to score, and always with a batch of special codes to raise your spirits!
Last month was pretty special in Pirate101. We had a big sale on Gear and Weapons in the Crown Shop, a Veteran’s Day giveaway, and plenty of fall-season themed items for you to purchase for your pirate and their home. What’s more, you need to make sure you’ve entered the code “2017thankyougift” before the end of the year! That code is our special thanks to all our players and redeems for two energy potions in Pirate101 so you can train up your pets!

Rogue’s Gallery: Duck Holliday
This month’s Rogue’s Gallery showcases the final companion from the Magnificent Seven . . . Duck Holliday. Musketeers get Duck as a companion during Cool Ranch, but all players can unlock him in the Crown Shop. You learn a lot about Duck and the Magnificent Seven, but how much do we really know about the huckleberry behind the *koff* *koff*? Read on for more insights into the background of Duck Holliday.
Subject: Duck Holliday
Home: Tumbleweed, Cool Ranch
Weapon of choice: Twin spark-shooters
Occupation: Former dentist.
Hank Holliday, known to his friends as “Duck,” worked as a dentist Back East before contracting a chronic lung disease. Hoping a hot, dry climate would ease his symptoms, Holliday migrated to Cool Ranch, taking up residence in the town of Tumbleweed. Sadly, chickens and ducks have little need for a dentist, and Holliday fell upon hard times.
One fateful day while languishing in the saloon, Duck was surprised to find himself in the middle of a brawl. He unwittingly tripped a Bronco desperado just as the bandit was taking aim at none other than Wyatt Chirp himself. Wyatt was much obliged to Duck for saving his life, and deputized him on the spot.
In the years that followed Holliday took quite a shine to enforcing the law, and the satisfaction his adventures gave him helped keep his health from deteriorating. Duck was a pillar of the Magnificent Seven until Wyatt Chirp’s tragic death. The precise circumstances are still unknown, but Billy the Kid blamed Duck for Wyatt’s death, and their feud drove the gang apart. Duck returned to Tumbleweed and resigned himself to a quiet life... until a young pirate darkened his door.
