So how do you win these wonderful prizes?  Well, I was going to have people take a picture with a shark, but Miss Narrator didn’t think that was a smart idea, so instead of that, I want to hear some amazing shark facts!!  Email me at dittocontest@gmail.com with the subject ‘Shark Week’ and send me a fun and amazing shark fact, plus your wizard or pirate name.   At the end of the contest I will choose all winners by random draw and notify by email and post the winners here on my blog.  I’ll also post the list of shark facts too!

So where can you find cool shark facts?  There are a lot of great resources, like Discovery and Wikipedia, or you can use your favorite research tool.  I want the facts to be interesting and positive, to show how amazing sharks are.  I can’t wait to see what you find out!

Good luck, have fun, and find some great shark facts!!   See you in The Spiral!

Pirate101 Gameplay Video – Awesome Ship to Ship Combat in Mooshu!

Captain Ditto has reached level 45 and has upgraded a bunch of stuff, including a fancy new ship!
After the upgrades, Ditto goes looking for trouble, seeking out Armada ships to attack, to collect items for several quests!  Ditto loves the new ship, as you can see – it’s very exciting!

Captain Ditto makes it through the gate to fight Inoshishi Clanlord in Pirate101

After defeating all the various elemental sorcerers and collecting the Fifth Element props, Captain Ditto and crew finally enter the inner sanctum of the Bandit Cave!  There, they face the dreaded Inoshishi Clanlord boss type person!!

Ditto was worried that this boss would have the powers of all the dreaded sorcerers combined, but… he didn’t, he was just a general bad guy.  It’s a pretty solid fight and, unfortunately, the crew does not come out totally unscathed, but Ditto was victorious, and after some rest and relaxation the crew will all make full recoveries.

Captain Ditto and Crew battle the Sorcerer of the Winds in Pirate101!

The second key to the bandits cave is the Wind Talisman – and these things are totally the elemental keys from ‘The 5th Element’ – it’s pretty obvious.  This key is guarded by the Wind Sorcerer and his minions, so there are the required ‘breaking wind’ jokes…  They make it too easy.

This fight definitely goes better than the last, as we have learned some lessons after facing the first two sorcerers… There’s no time to relax though – there’s much more needed!

Captain Ditto versus the Earth Sorcerer in Pirate101

Captain Ditto and his trustworthy crew head deeper into Bandit Cave, looking for the sigils that will unlock the final door and defeat the evil warlord guy…  The fight is quite a challenge and there were some losses along the way,  but Ditto’s crew is more than up to the task…  One down, two to go…

Captain Ditto is back in Mooshu, fighting in The Bandit’s Cave in Pirate101!

Captain Ditto and crew are back, sailing through Mooshu on the trail of General Tsao, so he can recover another part of Marco Pollo’s map!

To get to the General though, Ditto and crew have to defeat one of the local clan lords, held up in the mysterious Bandit’s Cave!   Ditto and crew face down a sorcerer and his minions to get through the gate, but there is much more to do before they face their final foe!

Ditto fighting Chronosaurs ad stuff in Wizard101!

Ditto is still in Azteca, and after his embarrassing defeat by the Chronosaurs, he is back at it and doing much better this time!  Unfortunately , after defeating the Chronosaurs, Ditto doesn’t get what he’s looking for, so he’s off to continue his quest…
