Celestia is coming people!


New world, advanced pet system and level cap increase included in two Wizard101 content updates

PLANO, TEXAS (March 24, 2010) – KingsIsle Entertainment, creators of the award-winning massively multiplayer online game (MMO) Wizard101 is proud to announce details on two of the major content updates for 2010. An extensive Advanced Pet system is launching this spring and the world of Celestia is launching late summer. In addition to all new quests the Celestia expansion will also include an increased level cap and new secondary schools of magic.

Coming this spring, players will have the opportunity to hatch customized pets from millions of potential combinations. The Advanced Pet system will bring a new dimension of interaction within Wizard101 as players can race their pets in the expansive Pet Derby, participate in new pet-themed minigames, feed and train them, and use them as allies in magic duels. Players will be able to level their pets from an egg to ancient beings with incredible powers.

The new world of Celestia is inspired by Atlantis, and young Wizards will encounter new adventures and quests deep under the sea. Celestia also increases the level cap in Wizard101 from level 50 up to level 60, as well as introducing three new secondary schools of magic. Celestia will officially open in late summer. Starting in June players can undertake new quests to discover the secrets of this new world and begin to unlock the story behind Celestia.

“2010 is shaping up to be an incredible year for the students of Ravenwood School of Magic,” said J. Todd Coleman, Vice President and Creative Director for KingsIsle Entertainment. “Whether exploring the underwater kingdom of Celestia, or hatching and training pets to participate in the Pet Derby, every player–from the newest apprentice to the returning grandmaster–will find something compelling, engaging and fun.”

In Wizard101, kids and families enter the magical world of Wizard City as student Wizards setting out to hone their Wizard skills, cast spells and summon powerful creatures to fight evil forces. The characters and worlds of Wizard101 are influenced by literature, history and pop culture, giving the game a depth and quality appreciated by families and players of all ages.

Wizard101 can be downloaded at www.Wizard101.com and offers free game play for as long as players choose. Players seeking access to premium areas and items may purchase pre-paid cards in participating stores or purchase a subscription or Crowns online. New worlds, activities, pets and Wizard clothing are periodically added to the game, creating an ever-changing world with new things to see and do.

Happy St. Patrick Day!

Since it is St. Patrick Day, I decided to visit Nightshade. I was just about to give up when two wizards, out of nowhere, needed help so I joined in the fight. Talk about luck, after that battle, I got Scepter of the shield. Afterward, my sister Christina joined me with labyrinth, and guess what?!!! I got the life deck! This is an important day in history! It means time to party! It means dancing banana!

Here is a picture of the both of us after fighting Gallium:

Here is the both of us in St. Patrick Color(s)!

Since it is St. Patrick day, Christina and I donated free cards in the Shopping District. It was fun!
Enjoy your holiday everyone!

It's finally spring break!

I just love spring break! One and a half week of no school, no homework, and no teachers to 'boss' you around. Basically I will get to just sit around and have fun! Well, technically I still have some homework to do because apparently not every teacher think the same thing... Anyway, I have a to do list for myself and it is quite long, at least in my opinion it is.

Revise Flowers for My Brother
Read the Darkest Power series (again)
Farm for life deck and life sword
Work on biology research experiment
Create a thread for characters needed
Work on the life house so I can open a party
Download more songs...

That's a lot of things to do in just 11 days don't you think?

My next subject will be on an artwork I worked earlier in the afternoon. I drew this for a group I'm in and I very much like it. Or at least I like it on paper rather than after I scan it onto the computer...
What do you think of my drawing? Any critique or rating is fine [:

Have a wonderful week!

Pets for The Win!

Greeting wizards across the spiral! It is a beautiful day where I live right now. I intend to play some hoops with my sisters afterward and I bet most people will be doing something too so I shall not keep you for long.

Let's start off with something fun and interesting! I was reading a thread earlier on some news and decided to do some research of my own. I am definitely please with what I have found.

I must say this picture definitely tell a lot about what is coming up. First off, there is a crab. Secondly, the ribbon on the ribbon says Celestia - meaning Celestia is definitely the new world. He also draws the most attention out of the four, if you include the ninja pig, even more attention than the piggle! However, that is another story. Anyway, it seems most people are thinking whether it will still be a star-like world or undersea. Personally, I prefer a more star-like world. I just like stuff on the clouds (:

Anyway, here is the rest of the news:

When asked what’s in store for pet-owners, Merle Ambrose, headmaster of
Ravenwood School of Magical Arts, replied: “This spring, pets will be able to do
more than you have ever dared hope! These fine creatures will serve alongside
you in wonderful new ways, taking you to unseen parts of familiar worlds, and in
time to come, worlds beyond those you know! If you think you have seen all that
the Spiral has to offer, young Wizard, you will soon discover an all new breed
of entertainment!”

When asked to elaborate, Ambrose replied cryptically,
“The answer you seek may be in the stars... or it just might be there alongside

Note that the title of the news is Ravenwood School of Magical Arts Welcomes Spring Competition. Perhaps there will be a spring competition?

The next subject I will be talking about is the Darkest Powers Series. I'm not sure if anyone has heard of this series but all I can say is I love it so far! The first two books (The summoning & The Awakening) are amazing in my opinion! It is basically a series about four teenagers who is trying to get away from a group of evil scientists. The main character herself can summon the dead, talk to them, and she can even create an army of them if she learn how to. Making it all the more interesting are her companions which I rather not spoil for the fun of the book. This series has been on my mind all week and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes adventure, mystery, and a bit of romance (: I just can't wait for the third book! (The Reckoning)

I'm not sure if I have mention this before but I think my life house is looking gooooood. I am planning on a party this spring break if I manage to finish decorating so I am really excited. All I need is a little bit more time and hopefully my creativity will return. I would post a picture but I think this blog is getting a bit long. Do you think you will come to my party?!!

Thank you for listening wizards! Hopefully, whatever KI is planning on releasing will come soon, maybe during spring break. Speaking of which, my spring break is starting on March 11 and I will resume school on March 22. What a wonderful break that will be.

Have a wonderful weekend wizards!
Remember to be safe and think of the people around you!
