Quest Journal – Nightmare Captain Blood

Nightmare Captain Blood
In the World of Dreams

In the first release of the World of Dreams, in August 2018, the Royals at KingsIsle introduced Four new Nightmare Boss battles. These battles are intensely difficult and designed for top-level players and as team up opportunities.  Captain Blood is one of these nightmare challenges.

Pirates first face off with Captain Blood in the Haunted Skyway on the isle of Miranda. During one of my favorite puppet shows, the Dead Man’s Hand, Pirates learn about Blood’s last request from his death bed, to play a hand of poker with Death. Having a gambling problem, Death agrees.

In the final hand, Blood raises the stakes and wagers his immortal soul. Death of course agrees, that’s when Blood cheats. Death placed his cards on the table, but Blood left the table and never came back to play his hand. Now the game is in a state of Limbo. The result is, it’s your quest is to find all the cards dealt to Blood, along with the bones of his lost hand. With his own hand, you will be able to lay the cards on the table at the Old Sippin’ Saloon in Miranda and send Blood into Death’s domain. Of course once you have played Blood’s hand, you must defeat Blood before his soul can be sent on its way with Death. Continue reading

Get to Farming

Now through October 28th you have a chance at winning some awesome prizes!

In fact the pillow stockpile has grown so huge, there’s only one thing to do . . . PILLOW FIGHT!!

This pillow “farming event” will run through each weekend of Pirate 101’s birthday month:

  • Pillow Fight #1: Oct. 12-14 with Blue and White, Cyan and Pink pillows (Winners: Able Halyard and Bryan Jones)
  • Pillow Fight #2: Oct. 19-21 with Leather and Tan, Pink and Magenta pillows (Winners: Smart Wolf Jones and Stormy Heather Ironside)
  • Pillow Fight – The Finale!: Oct. 26-28 with all four new pillows: Blue and White, Cyan and Pink, Leather and Tan, Pink and Magenta pillows

At the end of each weekend we will tally the count of pillows and those who got the most of a particular set will be awarded with a bunch of Crowns! See below for details on the prize pool.

Let the pillow fight begin!
