To mark this milestone, I would like to announce the very first Ravenwood Ball! There will be dancing and massive amounts of pure silliness!

Look at this thing I made!

This is a banner/signature I made yesterday.
I really like it but I was wondering what everyone think about it? Should I make this my banner for the blog? or keep the current one?

This is also for anyone who haven't heard about the contest yet. Our member, angelbright, is holding a wonderful contest! All you have to do in order to enter is post on the thread. Click HERE!

A new feature was also introduced to the Wizard101 Central yesterday, it is call the iTrader! Just like its name, what you do with the iTrader is give feedbacks to the person you traded cards with. While I haven't officially trade anything in that forum yet, I indeed find this a very interesting feature. However, don't make this like a gold-earning thing. More information can be find here, but don't forget to read the proper trade posts before posting!

Last but not least, Mercenaries For Hire (M4H) is holding a fabulous event called the Tri-Harvest Festival! You will have a chance of farming three of the spiral most famous bosses: Yeva Spiderkeeper (Crystal Grove), Viktor SnowCrusher (Drake Hatchery), and Kraysys (Forum). This is a wonderful oppurtunity for all those wizards that still need their gears. The Event will start at 5am pacific on Saturday 4/24 and continue through the weekend and end at 9pm pacific on Sunday 4/25. I will probably be there, especially at Snowcrusher and Yeva so be on the look out!

That's all for today everyone!
Have a fantastic weekend and remember to be safe!

When it is a life vs. life tournament...

...always carry around some reshuffles. If you don't have feints, it also make a big difference in a one hour match or four hours long.

Earlier, I was dueling with Lindsey (angelbaby2181) and I must say it was one heck of a duel! It is my longest tournament duel ever! The reason was because we reshuffle several times, and neither of us are fully attacking. While Lindsey was focusing on attacking me, I kept attacking her minion lol. The duel went on like that for a long time. There was one point where Lindsey dealed a hit with about 2000 damage and almost got me defeated. However, with my luck going first, I quickly healed and my minion did the same.

All the while, my stomach was begging for food. What I learn from this duel is that carrying around some feints can really make a big difference. The match also gave me another reason why I should learn reshuffle. I realized that with reshuffle, the match would have been much longer... But, if I have reshuffle, it also mean that I wouldn't have to keep passing and wait till a spell hit me...

Even though it was long and made my body all stiff and sore, I really enjoy it! What a great way to spend a Sunday evening, right? Anyway, I would like to thank my friend Daniel (InuYasha) and Valdus (Wicked Fire Wizard) for being at the arena to cheer me on, even though I lost anyway XD Other members who also stopped by to watch are Alex (Alex Deathflame), Destiny (Nighmares), Autumn (Autumn Ice), Michael (Sandley7) and a few others who I don't quite remember names, sorry

That's all for tonight everyone!

It's a Celestia Wallpaper!

This shouldn't be something new because after all, it is all over the forum and on the front page of course. I just decided to give some insights of what I think of the picture. Now, let’s take a look at it.

Here is what Friendly has to say about the picture

The idea here is that from now until the release of Celestia they will fill
in a character or two in the image every once in a while, slowly driving us
all insane with the joy and speculation only a true Wizard101 fan can feel.

Doesn't that sound exciting?!! We will eventually know who or what are in that picture. As for now, let’s have fun guessing! From left to right...

Judging from the look, that one looks like the giant lobster we saw in the spring competition picture with the piggle and mander. A small figure is standing beside/next to him and he also looks like a lobster, just much much smaller than him. Moving on is a crab-like creature because you are obviously seeing two eyes bulging out. The guy right in the middle looks like an explorer, think he is good looking? O.o There is also a girl next to him, could she be his daughter? or just a companion? Here we shall a small creature-like and I really had no clues what he is. It looks like he has ears too! Then the crab and of course another weird looking lobster again. What is he holding?

In the background, we see lots of machinery stuff. I see a submarine, and the pulley, and that red looking thing at the back. This may be a very advance world we are looking that, regardless the fact that they are underwater. Another thing that is very interesting is that the Celestians do make accessories, according to this thread. So much mystery in one picture!

That's about it for today. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. If you have time to kill, here is something for you to read (:

Have a nice day everyone!

P.S. I just take a look at my buddy list to see who is online. Wow! 20 people! Break the record of most friends ever online here on central lol
