A New Update and a Spooky Holiday Have Arrived!


It's been an exciting recent few weeks for Pirate101 players! We’ve brought you a new game update that contains a bunch of fun content and challenges. More about the new update and other happenings from around the community in this month’s newsletter below.

The truly exciting theme about this month’s upcoming events and game content is that much of it is being directed by the community itself. Keep watch on the game’s Twitter page @Pirate101 for regular event updates as the community sends them to us!

 

Rogue's Gallery: Papa Legbones

Name: Papa Legbones

Occupation: Spirit Talker

Home: Skull Island, Scurvy Dogs Isle

Weapon of Choice: Mojo Staff

About: Born to a reclusive tribe of Water Moles who still dwell in the Floating Land (the isles over sunken Celestia), the Witchdoctor who became known as Papa Legbones was exiled from his tribe for making pacts with evil spirits and made his way to Skull Island, settling near a mysterious ancient ruin. There he communed with all manner of spirits, pledging himself to Sister Snake. After his patron rewarded him with the Eye of the Serpent, Legbones looked even deeper into the spirit world, encountering all manner of strange and baleful entities.

One day a wayward sailor landed on Legbones’ isle, the only survivor of a shipwreck. Legbones nursed the injured young man back to health, using his knowledge of herbal cures and healing mojo to save his patient’s life. The young man, fascinated by the arcane power that had saved his life, became Legbones’ willing student. The budding witch doctor learned quickly but refused to take Sister Snake as his magical patron – he heard another voice calling to him from far beyond. When Papa Legbones learned his student had pledged himself to none other than the Dark Crawler he cast out his student, just as he himself had been cast out. The young witch doctor met an untimely death and rose again as Old Scratch. Papa Legbones stayed in his cave, keeping to himself until a rival witchdoctor came to steal the Eye of the Serpent. Overcome by his foe, Legbones would cry out for help from beyond the grave...
