Treasure Map!

Imagine my surprise (and my son's surprise as he was home sick that day) when I got a package of sorts in the mail from KingsIsle (especially since I had no idea they new both my name and my address) emblazoned with the Pirate101 logo and the words, "Hidden treasure awaits within!" in Treasure Map Deadhand font. It was sealed on three sides and stiff as if if contained a CDROM. I couldn't have been more wrong, however when opening up revealed a treasure map!

Five clues to guide to you a promo code, and I'll admit the last two were rather tough - but what fun! And I will admit here that since the Pirate101 launch, I haven't logged into Wizard101 at all (though I do plan to get back to it one day).

The website also has a seek-and-find game you can play with the map, which fits nicely into this week as my daughter and I have been going through the Walter Wick book I Spy: Treasure Hunt in the fictional town of Smuggler's Cove. As she hasn't seen the map yet (she's been too busy playing Pirate101), I'll spring this one on her tonight.

What a neat promo, KingsIsle!

Who's feeding your plants??? Are you just letting them starve???

They're in a kind of 'stasis' that is to say, as long as I'm logged out, no time really passes in-world...

I have not logged into Wizard 101 in a very very long time. I had to have them email me my password. But I have created a pirate! Fearless Finnegan Chamberlain.
I have a crappy little light raft they pretty much give you called, "The Brown Mackerel" I have only upgraded the cannons and head of the ship. I am trying to earn enough to get a decent ship at best. I am still in the starting zone. Maybe I will see you online sometime. Cheers

How fun! And here's some news - you get a bigger ship around level 8! I really should sell that raft, but its just so darn funny I can't do it. Then I got one of my characters the Cutthroat Bundle at Game Stop which came with the Sharktooth Ship:

That said, I'd had rather picked out my own ship and paid with gold. You can dye those fantastic colors. This one not so much :(

I hate you Pirate 101. I was not so much into Wizard 101 but I cannot seem to log off of Pirate 101.
