The Count to 80: 74!

So yesterday I hit level 74 and got from Caer Lyon into the Wild. So here's what I did in the Wild. (Caer Lyon is pretty boring.) Basically, once I got in, I had to talk to a certain dryad named Sophia Greensleeves. I was surprised that she shared my name. Sophia's husband was captured and taken to the White Owl Tower! My good friend and companion, Elizabeth GoldenThistle, was with me at the time and we decided to rescue him together. Elizabeth had heard many rumors of the troubles of the White Owl Tower, but never one to be deterred by rumors, I decided to go in anyway. Elizabeth went with me. After an annoying life boss, (an owl with an ego), we had to free a ponycorn trapped in a cage. She directed us to climb through a window on a vine. I was reluctant, never being one for climbing, but I made it up. As soon as we entered the room, we noticed green fumes, and began to slowly get sleepy. After a troublesome episode of finding the right ingredients for an antidote, we managed to ignore the fumes and get out of that deadly room safely. After that, we fought another owl with an ego and rescued Sophia's husband. After saving a fire elf village, training mass prism spells, and finding Sir Robin Bravely, (who was not thankful for our help) we were exhausted and done for the day. Now, today, we'll find the minstrel who has the Sword of Kings! (Or at least try to.) I'll see you later with an update on our escapades!

Thoughts about Halloween (EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW INSIDE!)

Hello again. *slides onto screen awkwardly* It's been a long time, hasn't it? I've been busy in game. I know, shocker. I still don't have a sub. I've been thinking, too. I'm really looking forward to Halloween in Wizard101! Last year, I could only do the apprentice tower and I was scared away by Baron Mordecai, but this year I'll be more than ready for all the fun of the more advanced monsters! (Of course, my Transcendent character would totally knock them out of existence.) Ooh, here's an idea! They should make an Archmage tower! Seriously though, having Grandmaster be the highest tower level is sort of low now. I'd totally be up for that challenge. Speaking of Halloween, all my characters are in Halloween costumes! They are epic! And here they are, in the order of least epic to most epic.
Maria, dressed as a wood elf thing (hey, I was on a budget!)
Grace, dressed as an English princess
Donna, dressed as a wolf
Sophia, dressed as a raven (she will have 1 day swiftshadow wings on the day of the -  I'm not telling!)
Emma, dressed as a blue dragon-rider (EPIC!!!)
Not bad, considering I'm on a budget, huh? You may notice I didn't include Daniel's costume. That's because he needs the pumpkin mask from the Baron Mordecai quest. I'll show you when it's finished. And now, for an exclusive preview of my Halloween dorm for the - oops, I almost gave it away! More details on the surprise in October.
The teleporter goes to a mystery location! :D You'll find out about that when I tell about the surprise.
Like them? I will see you with more details in October!

One year in the spiral!

Yes, today is my wizaversary! Although what with Pirate101, I wonder if I should call it "spiralversary". I think I will, because I can't remember the date that I made my pirate on. So anyway, this is my first spiralversary. In one year, I have progressed my main wizard to level 73 and Avalon, and also progressed Emma to level 22. I find this quite good considering that for only 3 months or so of this, I had a sub. I also gained a few friends. To me, there are the people on your friends list, and then there are your friends, the people who you hang out with in game and chat with and have fun with. Although I have a ton of people on my friends list, only a few of them are actually friends. Thank you to all my in-game friends: To Alexandria UnicornRiver, for humor and fun; Justin EarthSword, for fun times at my house and introducing me to my twin (see here); and most of all to Elizabeth GoldenThistle, for being my questing buddy from Firecat Alley to the High Road (where we are now), from levels 10 to 73, and for always being there, both in the spiral and in real life.

Now for some humor! Here's a little thing I did, saying my reactions and thoughts on all the milestones as a free player. I hope you enjoy!
Game downloaded, in the wizard creator: Okay, so I have chosen the school of life. I get to heal, that sounds cool! Next! I'm a girl...next! Hmm...I like this hair. The style looks like my real life one, and I don't really want to change the hair color. Face: hmm, I have brown eyes in real life. *click click click* Here we go! Skin color is good...next! Okay, now I get to choose my clothes. *lots of clicking* I like this! White with a green trim! (I know, I know. Kinda boring, but I'm a plain sort of person in clothes styles.) Now I get to choose a wizard name? Cool! All these choices are sort of overwhelming, so I'm going to hit the random button a few times and see what I get. *click* Anna GiantHead? Seriously? XD *click* No... *click* Um...I don't think so. *click* Oooh...Sophia EmeraldBlossom. That sounds so pretty! I like it! *finishes creating wizard*
In tutorial: *does all the tasks* Summoning magical creatures and dueling! That sounds so cool! *ground begins to shake, rain falls, shadow at window* *GASP!* Who's that!? Going into the tower doesn't sound like a great idea...Oh, this Malistaire guy must be who was at the window! Cool, he summoned some dragon things! But why are they ice if they're dragons? Weird... Great, now I need to fight them. Okay! *does a few rounds* Hmm, I wonder why the people draw different things when they cast spells. I will have to research this later. *once she casts unicorn* Wow! If this is healing, I think I might get something like this later! *after duel* He said he found what he was looking for. I wonder what that could be. Wow, he disappeared! I want to be able to do that! And a spellbook, and a wand, and I need to chat. Okay! Let's see what I can say...how about "No"? Yeah! *tutorial ends*
In Unicorn Way:
This is pretty! It looks life-ish. Unicorn park...I love this place! It's my favorite place so far! Time for a duel. Okay! *enters battle with lost soul and does not get it AT ALL* Wha...? Why don't I have troll and meteor strike and unicorn?! Well, this snake spell looks good! *casts and kills lost soul* There we go! *upon learning fairy* Wow! Now I can actually heal! This is great! *upon defeating Rattlebones* *gets Baxby tutorial tip and looks at drop* Ooh, Rattlebones's cowl! It must be super unique! I have a unique item! YAY! *gets broom* Cool, a broom! I go faster now!
Unlocks Ravenwood (includes leprechaun training):
Wow! Here's the school part! This is just so amazing! Everything is so pretty! (funny how people don't tend to pay attention to that stuff anymore) *after talking to all the teachers and gets training point* *trains leprechaun* Wow, a super powerful new spell! I will impress everyone with my leprechaun of awesome! (after this, I showed off leprechaun whenever I could. In the kraken fight, all over the streets...everywhere.) I wonder what I should spend my training point on, though? Since life is weak on damage, maybe I should do storm, which is high on damage! Yeah! *trains thundersnake* Wait...don't I already have this spell?
Triton Avenue: 
This street is gloomy. I don't like it as much as Unicorn Way. *after finishing* Oh cool! I have new gear! I forgot! But I don't like how any of it looks, so I'm not keeping it. *unequips and doesn't know what stats are*
Life school quest, level 7:
*skips to summoning at Rainbow Bridge* Wow, a seraph in the Commons! This is something you don't see every day! Wait...why aren't people stopping to stare at my awesome seraph? *sulks* Well, at least I got unicorn. That's something. It says "275 health to all friends", so it must heal all your friends no matter where they are! Cool! (to me, this spell description is very misleading)
After advanced dueling tutorial from Diego:
Oh...so THAT'S what pips are and how you get them.
Starting Firecat Alley:
Cool! New street! *goes to it* *GASP!!!!!!* I have to...to...pay? :'( But they said this game was free! Oh well. I'm sure I'll find a way to be able to buy it.

That's it! Did you enjoy it? By the way, the first time I fought the Kraken, I had to fight him alone. O_O Also, this is my 50th post! Woot woot! Not much farther until 100! Okay...actually it's a lot farther. Oh yeah, and the party hat from the spiralversary code didn't work, so I made this makeshift party outfit.
Me partying!
