It’s April! You know what that means . . . it’s time to act a Phule! Now thanks to our “Coolest Mount Ever,” you can act a Phule foolishly on your new April Fool’s Mount.
We hope you had a great time playing Pirate101 in March. If you were following along, you would have had a chance to save “Green on Green” during the middle of the month, be rewarded with an amazing Golden Treasure during KI Live, and picked up the new Majestic Ibis Pet from the Crown Shop.
Read on for more of your usual information and fun about Pirate101. Thanks for playing!
Rogue's Gallery: Egg Shen
Here it is . . . it’s our final featured member of the “Mooshu Five” . . . give it up for Egg Shen! You’ll get Egg Shen as your starting companion if you’re a Privateer in Pirate101. Egg has some pretty amazing moves and an even more interesting background.
Subject: Egg Shen
Weapon of Choice: Naginata
Occupation: Friendly Monk
Born to a family of farmers in Shoshun Village, Egg lived a humble life. Gentle, friendly, and easygoing, Egg was a favorite resident of his village, sought out be all as a source of advice and encouragement. He was also fond of giving visitors tours of the surrounding countryside.
In his fortieth year Egg’s life changed forever. Pig raiders attacked Shoshun, and would have ravaged the village if a bold monk had not intervened. Egg was amazed by the monk’s martial arts, and when the monk collapsed from her wounds after the fight Egg rushed to save her. Egg carefully nursed the monk back to health, and she thanked him by giving him marital arts lessons. She also told him experience was the key to wisdom, so Egg left his village behind.
He had many adventures before finally finding Master Hao in the Temple of Serenity. Egg took up the monk’s mantle himself, and continued his wanderings into the Spiral. Arrested in Valencia for loitering, Egg ended up in the hold of a prison ship, where he would meet a dashing young pirate and take up a new path to an even greater destiny...
Screenshot of the Month!
Wow! We had a fantastic bunch of screenshots this month. There was a great variety, and the fans of Pirate101 made choosing the Screenshot of the Month very difficult. Thank you! Keep it up, and we appreciate the support.
This month’s screenshot comes from Honest Abe. Abe took a picture of the most amazing tower he built in his player housing. As he says in his email, “This is a shot of a tower that I built at my house. It was as tall as the outdoor housing space would allow. A total of 18 stories high.”
As a reminder, 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.

Our cries for Fan Art were heard! We received more fan art this month than we have in a long time. We even received fan art from sympathetic Wizard101 players who read our newsletter! All we can say is a heartfelt thank you to everyone who sent us a picture this month. Now with that out of the way, here’s our spotlight . . .
This great picture of Pirate101’s most lovable shady character, One-eyed Jack, comes from Amber Voss. Amber had this to say, “This game has been a huge inspiration for me ever since it released, and I just wanted to say thank you to the staff at KingsIsle for making such a unique and amazing game. Today after reading the newsletter, I was motivated to make some quick fan art, and so I decided to share it with the staff.”
Thank you, Amber! We’re so glad you love to play Pirate101 and shared your talent with us.
If you too would like to be featured in the Pirate101 newsletter, send your works of art to the email@example.com email and thank you in advance!
Our hardworking Hybrid Hunters have found almost all of the hybrids that are available for them to discover and sure enough, right as we release a new pet, two new hybrids were also discovered. Congratulations to Tara and Davy Jones for uncovering the secrets of the Gilded Ibis and the Noble Ibis. Great work!
