Hello! I am Angel BattleBlade. This is my story ----

Here, in the sleepy village of Kembaalung Village, on the outskirts of Mooshu, the people still tell the legend of the mysterious goat. Every winter, when the nights grow long and nothing is left for them to do, the children sit in a circle around Dalai Lamba and listen with widened eyes and dropped jaws as the wizened monk brings to life the story of the goat.

"A long time ago..."

Up on the peaks of Hollow Mountain, where the air is thin, a goat sat down meditating. Long had he lived like this, alone in the mountains, at times painting the scenery, at times reciting poetry.

Feeling bored, he trekked up a narrow mountain trail, he came to a home, a large stone hut built underneath a large ledge. Then he heard a faint sound. Someone was shouting for help. He looked around, and saw a boy wizard tied up to a stone.
The goat strode to the boy and released him.

Suddenly, the ground shook. A large boar emerged from the hut. It was Master Tonkatsu. The goat, fearless and calm, muttered a mantra. Upon hearing the chant, Master Tonkatsu became delirious, and headed toward the direction to the cave of Hollow Mountain. He never came back. The boy was saved. The goat went inside the hut and saw thousands of gold on a table. He took all of them and distributed to the villagers.

And, as always, Dalai Lamba ended the story of the heroic goat with a chuckle, telling the children to head home before Master Tonkatsu comes out of the cave.

The End!


I think he should wear the nose too!   Thanks, Samantha Night Tail

Awesome Christmas decorating by Artur Spellmender

Maria Darkblood 


Twas the night before Yuletide, when all through the spiral
Not a creature was stirring, not even Morganthe’s Army.
The quetzal cage was hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that Felix Navidad soon would be there.

The wizards were nestled all snug in their castles,
While visions of sugar crystals did the bee dance in their heads.
And the ghost of Sylvia in her ‘kerchief, and Malistaire the Undying in his cap,
Had just decided to enjoy their afterlife.

When outside the window there was such a splatter,
I grabbed my Wizarding Hat to investigate the din.
I grabbed my deck, unsure what to expect
Then I summoned my dragon and flew out the window.

The moon was my only friend, who lit up some tracks
Gave me just enough to see what the night foretold.
When, what to my lying eyes dare reveal,
But Lydia Greyrose in a cat mask, trying to break in!

With tap of her wand, bold and calculated,
The fairy professor almost got in.
I could not help but gasp at this sight,
And she turned and yelled, and called me a name!

"Now, Dangit! now, Darnit! now, storm lord-and-forest!
Oh come on! On, cripes! Of all the wintery nights!
To bed with you! To dreamland you go!
Now flee, young wizard! Go away! Forget you saw me!"

As the snowflakes swirled wildly, and Fluffy flew,
I didn’t know what to think of Greyrose, I just knew.
When she turned to my door, I asked what she was looking for,
With the car full of rings, amulets, and dirks, and a few robes too.

And then, in a flash of white lights, I saw on the chimney
The pour whimpering cries of little babies.
As I commanded Fluffy up, and was terrified at best,
Down the roof fell a fox pet.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And the little darling looked to be in a horrible mood.
A bundle of fur and flesh was all he had
And he looked like a puppy, just about to attack.

My voice unsteady, I called down to the ninja fairy
“What are you doing with this fox?”
The ninja fairy simmered, and then called out
“The fox is your problem now!”

With a flash of sparkles, icy ice ice,
Greyrose disappeared into the night.
Her sack went poof, no evidence behind,
Looked like this little treasure was mine!

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself!
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk.
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose!

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
"Happy Yuletide to all, and to all a good-night!"


Thanks for your Christmas decor pics Lucas L.





"Places everyone. places!!!" he said, as the bright blue curtains opened to reveal a house decorated perfectly for the Holidays.. it was cold outside, and the trees were covered in snow. everyone was getting ready for the holidays. in the north pole, Santa and his elves were hard at work, creating the toys that would soon be handed out to children all around the world.
Happy holidays from all of us at "A yuletide Story", an original seasonal play.

A story by Christina Rainbow

It's after hours, and the street is wet with afternoon rains that linger on past the sunset. Lamp-posts glower softly at busy wizards travelling from Commons to Olde Town. This is the Shopping District at night, glares of shops' displays and the water fountain in the center.

There is Felix Navidad, selling holiday items. He always used to attract waves of people. The crowd combed itself into a line, to wait in their murmurs and squabbling for exclusive Christmas items.

But now, it's different.

No one is buying things from Felix. The fluorescent lights of the surrounding shops illuminate his tired body, clutching a sack full of Christmas gifts. Twilight is settling down and he has nowhere to go, especially when he has stood at the same spot since 9a.m., with no customers.

Two girls, Molly and Keira, happened to come to the dye shop in Shopping District. They see the boy dressed up in Santa costume, leaning against the water fountain, head hung low. The girls whisper to each other's ears, they agree on something. They walk to Felix.

"Hello, we would like to buy five Candle Wands and five Candy Wands," said Molly.

Felix tuns in surprise, to look at who's speaking. Hurriedly, he picked out the items from his sack and passed them to the girls.

"Merry Christmas!" he said.

As they pay and leave, Felix grins and claps his hands in joy. His last remnants of sadness disappear in the joyful spirit.He can't help but think, there are people who still remember about me, who still remember about Christmas.

Felix had no life. No friends. No family. No love.

And especially, he was terrible at Ravenwood magic. He took the test literally fifty times. He got ice and life school 25 times. So just decided to join the ice school.

Wherever he went, he seemed to spread anger, or hatred. Either that, or people would walk away and try to avoid him. He could never seem to make anyone, at all, happy.

In his free time, he loved listening to Yuletide music. Feliz Navidad was a favorite. He loved the Yuletide season. He believed that the holiday was or giving, and not receiving. Although Felix never received, he always gave...and people would reject his gifts.

At school, in life, quests, he was bullied. No one loved him. No one cared about him. But he never gave up! When the world tried to break him down, he just built his walls higher.

One day, a thought hit him. No one cares about me, right? He thinks about suicide. What will happen? What will everyone think? Would they care? Probably not. But Felix found this pointless. He decided to fake his death.

***

It is Christmas Eve. All wizards are celebrating in the commons, having fun. Talking, drinking, eating, and all the fun stuff. This is where he would make his last stand. Right there, the commons, on his most favorite time of the year.

He started to climb the tree, the tallest there was on the commons. He yelled to get some attention to see if anyone cared. No one did. He knew it would happen. Here goes, he thought.

From the highest branch, he took one step, and he started to fall. It felt like time was passing by very slowly for him. He fell slowly, second by second, and somehow his decent slowed down. Eventally, he stopped falling; everything stopped moving. Felix looked around.

Everything around him was as still as anything could be.

He saw a large light of a ghost approaching up to him. It was the lengendary Yuletide Spirit. No one ever saw it for real. They only saw her progeny. Felix was astounded.

She started talking to Felix. He was silent. "Why must you take your life?" she asked. "Your life is a special gift. The others don't know it yet. You do not feel love, but you do not give up. You would sacrifice yourself for what reason now? No one cares about you now, but they will love you in the future. I will make you into a legend, Felix Navidad."

And with that, time began again. Felix started to fall. He didn't have enough time to stop his fake death. He crashed into the asphalt and exploded into a huge shower of snowflakes.

***

Several days later, Felix opened his eyes. He felt different. He stood up and looked around. He was in a huge icy area. He looked down at himself and almost screamed! What was he wearing? How many pounds did he gain? When did he grow a beard? When did his hair turn white?

He looked around, and remembered the Spirit's words. "...they will love you in the future." Felix pondered these words. He also wondered if he was dead. Then the idea came to him.

The wizards would love him for the generous things be gives to them. He will make toys, gifts, anything of the kind for everyone! For his special time of the year! He decided to go by the name of: Santa Claus.

He sent out on his trek on the mysterious icy land he was in. The quest to start the happiness and love around the new holiday that was about him: Christmas.


Thanks for the contest! My name is Alex Fireblade

12 days of the Spiral Contest Coming Up!

Stay tuned for a 12 days of the Spiral Contest.  What's more iconic at Christmastime than the 12 days of giving?  Ali thinks that she needs 12 days of gifts at Christmas but it's really hard to keep giving thoughtful gifts for 12 days in a row, But for you, Wizard101 has picked out some unique gifts to give you when you log in every day between now and the 13th.  But they've also given us a few things to give away!

So come back every day for the next 12 days!

We're starting our holiday giveaway very soon so check back so you don't miss the start!

Polaris Night 3

I blazed through a huge part of Polaris with Suri and Duncan and a little help later on from kindly storm wiz. I ran around on day 4 looking for icecream cones and white roses. I'll post the locations shortly.

But along the way there was this cool quest...

Baba Yaga sends you to Arcanum. So is this a glimpse of the next world in Wizard? Or, is Arcanum a world between worlds like Wysteria but without the fighting quests? It seems to be a school world at the moment but the the thing that's cool about it is that it's a place outside of the Spiral. A wizard may guess that a place outside the spiral may run into trouble at some point like maybe some problem will cause it to fall out of it's place.  I'm just saying, things can go wrong and when they do a good wizard is usually needed!



This place is awesome!


This NPC reminds me of the girl in the MockingJay movie with her hair style and tattoo.


Velma Von Venkman helps you on your quest for a bit.  





I wonder if she's related to this Venkman?  Maybe a great great great Grandma on his Dad's side?


This place looks a little bit etherial but with a dash of outer-spaceyness.


In the Storm School area these guys look like they're a bit shocked by what they're learning.

Polaris questing Night 2

I got on late the other day (about 10pm) and hung out at the cannon game in Pixie realm and some not-so-strange strangers showed up to quest...  Suri (Mamzelle) and Duncan. They had a super fast run of Polaris and finished earlier that day!

They joined me for some fun questy goodness and here's a little video clip from our adventure.

Enjoy!
Vale

If anybody wants to quest Polaris with me just show up at the cannon game in Pixie realm whenever and if I'm there we'll have a questing party and I'll take a video cap for the blog.

Join me in Polaris

Polaris is live and I'm getting on late and don't have anyone to quest with tonight.

Help a poor Vale out!

Watch for me in the Pixie realm by the cannon game.  If you find me there in the late evening I'll be looking for a questing party.

I'll post a video of some battle or fun that we have if there is a questing party.

See you there!
Valerian Nightbringer



Here's me graduating finally! YAY!


But the questing isn't done...

Polaria

A cool fishing village.

Hope to see you soon!

Polarian Bundle House (Video tour)

The Polarian Bundle house is one of my favorites of all time. Part of it is a good amount of tricky areas for making the hide and seek games fun. Part of why I like it is the comfort factor and part of it is hidden areas!  Of which there are a few.  Every house needs a secret passageway or two or three!



Anyway, this is a fun place with ice on a lot of areas including part of the house.  The ice makes your mount/whale/skates fun by making them about twice as fast on the icy parts.

Ok. here is a video of the grounds and house and a guy that's camping out under your house giving out pet snacks and what not.  A bit weird I agree, but at least he gives you something... Check it out.

(The videos are in the approval process but should be released shortly.  If they don't render within a minute then come back in a few hours and they should be live...)

Then a secret tunnel and secret blind wall exit.

Last but not least the secret ice fishing cave.

This bundle has some cool items that are just plain enjoyable. For example, I like that when you jump while mounted on the whale that it turns over and your character partly falls off and gets back on. Of course I love that your mount can give you extra tough albeit a very small amount. That's awesome! And I love the touch of the ice and the fact that it feels kind of slippery.

Polarian Bundle Awesomeness


Wizard101 provided a Polarian bundle to check out and test.  Here are the results...

Overall you'll enjoy the look. It's very wintry (good timing for the snow we just got here). Another fun thing about the bundle is the mount which has a special secret you can see in way way below. The mount is a must-have for questing wizards.  The bundle is so awesome you may hallucinate that you saw a multi-colored bunny. Or did I really see that?

Anyway, you'll find that the bundle has decent shielding and good shadow pip setup. It's a good outfit for multi-school spell casters as you'll get much needed general accuracy. (more details below)

I'll post more about the castle which anyone who has a bit-o-sea in the blood will LOVE!!!

Vale

P.S.  Check out the video way way at the end of this post... I had a weird digital barf that ended in my pet being able to run around the cannon game target area. I fly my owl around the entire area and check out what's way at the back and the little tower thing. Scroll all the way down... it's worth it for the curious wizard.


This whale just looks boss!


Narwhal, narwhal living in the ocean... causing a commotion because they are so awesome!

...Narwhal GIVES 2% extra tough!

Gear and pet posing for the paparazzi



Here's the full gear

The level 100 wand has a good crit rating! And additional generic accuracy is much appreciated for us double-schoolers.

The level 100 coat has a decent block amount and good shadow pips. Of course the generic accuracy is nice for double-school setup.  The 100 level boots have much appreciated shield break and good shielding and shadow pips too.


The hat... check out the shadow pips at level 100 and a relatively good 16% block.


Here are the wand selections for different levels.











The level 11

 Level 12 wand


Check this out! Through some kind of bug my pet is free to fly around the whole cannon game village! I'm always curious to see what I can see. If you follow my owl you get to find where the real boundaries of this area are.
