NELSON EVERHART'S MUSICAL TOUR
Check out this latest round of videos about the music of Pirate101! Produced by Nelson Everhart, Composer for some of the greatest Spiral hits, he continues his Musical Tour of the Spiral with a new soundtrack - Valencia Combat 2:
LOVEABLE MELODY TO THE ISLE OF DOOM
By Loveable Melody Morgan at Adventures of the Spiral
"Loveable Melody Morgan met her crew on her ship, The Queen’s Dawn, and sailed to the Isle of Doom. It looked quite ancient and the pirates were awed by the building structures. The captain found a chest up the stairs on the way in and plundered it. Moving on through the tunnel she heard a tiny “Roar”. “What was that?” she remarked. Bonnie Anne pointed to the fern and said that it came from the bushes. Coaxing the critter out, it started purring and it seemed to be a ginger-colored tiger. Melody put a collar on it and became the Captain’s new pet. “Lady Fluffy is gonna need some training before I take her into the jungle,” she mentioned to the crew. Sending her off for that training, she let Lord Bentley, her Ancient Bunnis Maximus follow her around and said, “I’m sure these two will become great friends.
“Now back to the business at hand. The crew had to talk to Foreman Salazar. Greeting him the Foreman thanked them for coming and said, “We’ve been so long without good food, we were about to eat our clothes!” He went on to welcome the Captain to the Isle of Doom, “It’s a lovely place if you can avoid the brain-eating parasites. Don’t drink the water.” - Loveable Melody
For this month’s art spotlight, we are showcasing a really cool sketch of Bonnie Anne as drawn by Stormy Seth Vane!
