What’s Happening At The Portal

Victoria Bristol - Level 19

Captain Victoria Bristol
Level 19 Pirate

A Quick Thank You

This week we’ve gotten a lot of nice comments and congratulations relating to our first contest. And some of you have asked why you haven’t seen many updates to the Portal. We wanted to say thank you for the kind emails first of all. We’re thrilled that our humble little blog has been received so well by Spiral fans.

As for our updates…no we didn’t become official and then give up sharing information and tidbits. Seems a wee bit of a virus has spread around our ships and knocked everyone off their feet a bit. Thankfully we’re all getting better and slowly finding some energy again to set out in the spiral for more adventures.

Captain Victoria Bristol has become a level 19 Pirate and is questing in Cool Ranch.

Captain Aedan Hawkins has become a level 12 Pirate and is questing in Monquista. He also wrote his first Captain’s log this past week. We’re pretty proud of him for that. He did a good job.

Garrett Hawkins has yet to really get moving on his questing. But he keeps talking about it in the Tavern out on Skull Island.

So stay tuned. We’ll all be feeling back up to par and be sharing more news and adventures soon enough.

Captain Aedan Hawkins – Spiral Date 416511.13

Questing News From The Spiral

Hello again pirates of the spiral! I have certainly been going around and about in the Tradewinds Skyway in Puerto Mico. Such a small place. So small its hard to see where I am going on my bird! Also they say I am bald! Crazy Monkeys. Besides all the crazy monkeys running around I have a new ship-a Galleon called The Silent Falcon. It does not have much to it yet, but I did a few quests to get to level 12 to use it, because I was only level 11 when I  got it.
