The End is Near

So this last week we have been celebrating House-a-Palooza. KingsIsle sent out codes for awesome prizes to a bunch of their official bloggers. In this post : click* :, you can find all the info for what they're giving away, if they're still open, and a link to the pages where you can enter! So make sure to check that out as it will be updated often.

Now you may be wondering which one I have my eyes on... and that is the Diary of a Wizard contest for the Life school house. I would love to get my hands on one of those. I mean, who wouldn't want a giant tree complete with Treant guards and a swimming pool? It also is my second favorite school house (the first being the Myth school house). And it would also be nice to make it into what I see the home of Jason Earthmenders parents being. ;)

Happy contest entering! :D

House-A-Palooza 2012

As we all know, Wizard101 began to do these little-- celebrations -- of sorts last year called Palooza's. During them they put the things that are part of that Palooza on sale in the crown shop, but only the crowns price. Then we come to the greater part of these Palooza's... the official site giveaways! Below is a list of the sites that are doing the contests. I will try to link them directly to the post when I can (not all of them are up at this point).

Ravenwood Ball and Deathbane Maze 2012

Hello amazing readers!

Tonight was the Ravenwood Ball. I headed over around 3:00 pm MTN time and found a surprise. Area 1 was "unavailable" and a pretty good sized group of wizards were partying in Area 2 (where I was).

I ended up running into a Deathbane Maze port bus and ended up there for the next 5 hours. x_x
I was on my own for most of the time. I followed some wizards around house 3 and 4 and then ended up with a couple of people for houses 6 and 7. Sadly, in house 7 (Tower of Winter Winds) of the Deathbane Maze... we got stuck in an area with no way to get out. We waited there for about 2 hours trying to find where we were supposed to squeeze through, or even just for someone to walk by below that we could teleport to. So I ended up leaving, two houses before the finish. :\

But all in all it was a pretty fun night. I may not have got to spend time really at the big party. The game didn't allow me that privilege. All I can do now is hope that next year I might be better prepared!

Now, here are some of the photos I took as I ran around. You can view them below or at the following link.

Thanks for stopping by the Bulletin Board!
Until I write again, have a wonderful time in the world of Wizard101 (or Pirate101 Beta if you've been lucky).
