But we also told you at the end of our contest, you’ll be able to enter for your chance to win a “Grand Prize” code for the month! This code is good for the unreleased Aquila Crown Shop Vessel and 10,000 Crowns to boot!!!

So here it is!! Your chance to enter and win one heck of a vessel for your Pirate Captain and enough crowns deck it out with the best ship equipment from the Crown Shop!

We’ll randomly pick winners from our contest entries.

The Grand Prize Trivia Question!

Aquila is a Latin word for eagle.
Where does the word “Aquila” come from AND where can you find “it” today?

This might be a hard one for some. But you don’t need access to Aquila to find the answer.
We’ll give you a hint: there’s a story behind the name, look for that and you should be able to find the answers.

you’re able to receive email back from our email address –
We don’t want your winning notice to get lost in your spam folder!

We’ll email the winners by 9pm est Saturday (if not sooner). We’ll also post the day’s winner (first name only) with their Pirate’s name, here on the Portal. And if you send us a picture of your pirate with your special gift or the item you pick up in the crown shop with your 10,000 Crowns, we’ll post that on the winner’s announcement page too!

Good Luck!

Our Final Trivia Question!

Where and who heard the voices of the Immortals?


In Nova Aquila’s High Temple the voices of the Immortals were heard by the Temple Priests.

Learn more about Aquila:
Generations after the fall, a new hero rose: Aquilus, the Golden Eagle, who defeated the monsters that teemed in the ruins of proud Aquila and united the Eagles again. Aquilus forged the Second Empire and founded the shining city of Nova Aquila. In its High Temple the priests heard the voices of the Immortals once again: after centuries of darkness, the Olympians brought prosperity and good fortune back to their children.
