So Queen Aryanah Silvertusk has a headache… and Ditto needs to take care of that before he can help the student trapped in the zoo. I really don’t like this queen, I have to say… Ditto has to talk to the queen’s head of security, Hrathi again, and he tells Ditto to go fight the greyhorns making all the ruckus in the streets. That’s right, I said ruckus… So Ditto goes and puts the smackdown on some annoying greyhorns.
Of course after Ditto clears all the fire prisms, etc… out of his deck, the greyhorn is assisted by a fire enemy, who throws a firezilla on the first turn! Anyway – it’s a pretty good fight, With Ditto showing those annoying rhinos who’s the boss….
Ditto had some trouble with WordPress for a few days, so it took a bit longer to get this out. Sorry about that – the joys of technology.
Captain Ditto and his trusty crew forge deeper into the spooky tunnels, battling The Armada deep within the Isle of Doooom!! Some good fights against this mechanical menace!!
Ditto has finally found Hrathi Irontrunk’s pen and parchment, and returns to get the royal order. Ditto heads to the Zoological Garden to speak to the evil captive wizard — who ends up being one of the missing students!! He wasn’t a nasty evil wizard at all, just a poor lost student! Bugs attacked him and the group, and then didn’t understand that he was a victim — they thought he was an agent of the zebras and kidnapped the prince!! A frightened prince that they keep in a zoo! That’s pretty awful, actually…
Ditto ALSO takes a tour of the most amazingly fun zoo ever!! There’s a full sized Firezilla, and ice cats, and these cure little gobbler thingys!! I love it — I spent bunch of time exploring and seeing the animals!
Captain Ditto is deep in the Isle of Dooom, still looking for Gortez and the fabled gold money thingy. However, when we get to a dark spooky temple, The Armada is there – dun dun dunnnnn!! Ditto and his crew must battle the dreaded Armada to reach the next goal of their deep jungle quest!!!
These are some pretty intense fights – The Armada doesn’t mess around!!
So I guess a little explanation might be in order in regards to the video of Edgar this morning. Edgar is, as you may have guessed, a new roommate, and he has been VERY excited about being on my website. Of course, he doesn’t really play video games, or know much about them, and I’ve been busy with contests, etc…, so it has been hard to find a place to work him into a video. Well, today he talked Carl, my faithful (but not terribly bright) camera-bear into doing a video, but all he saw on my calendar was ‘Ditto vid blog’ and figured he’d try to do that. (Yes, I need to do a real one soon…) The video that got posted this morning was the result.
So what do you think about Edgar? He’s a nice enough guy – um, dragon – and he wants to be part of the site. What should I have him do? Any ideas?
Well May is here and Ditto has a fresh new contest – this month is all about farming! That’s right, Ditto has seed packs to give away – these contain random seeds AND Moolinda Wu packs – as well as the BIG prize – the amazing Red Barn Farm House (with additional castle elixir) . Now this is serious farming – Farmville has nothing on Ditto and the Red Barn Farm House!!
For Pirates De Mayo, Ditto asked how your pirate captain and crew celebrated this fun holiday, and I got lots of really great answers!! I’ve chosen the winners and sent their codes for 2500 Crowns and the Gobbler Pinata! Also, I ended up having more codes than expected, so I’ve awarded codes to even more winners!! Here they are:
So to get further into the jungle, into the very heart of darkness, Ditto must get past… bees. So after fighting warships and troggies and all kinds of nasty stuff, Ditto’s quest is blocked by small stinging insects. Maybe the crew is allergic, who knows. So after collecting – of all things – troggy slime, Ditto now needs to pick special flowers and mix them all together to make bee repellent. This stuff is repellent alright..
Of course the troggies just don’t play nice, and Ditto ends up getting into another troggy fight. Nothing his more or less adequate crew can’t handle…
It’s May, and that means it’s time for Pirates De Mayo!! For the pirates of The Spiral, this is a very special celebration filled with fun and games and pie! Ok, maybe I added the part about pie… But the rest is totally true! And to celebrate, Ditto has a fun and exciting contest!!
In the spirit of this wonderful holiday, tell Ditto what your pirate and crew do to celebrate Pirates De Mayo! Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ‘Pirates De Mayo’, tell me what Pirates De Mayo tradition your captain has, and make sure you include your captain’s name. On Sunday, May 5th after 6pm EST, I will select 15 winners to receive special Pirates De Mayo codes that include 2500 crowns and the exclusive Gobbler Piñata!
Please only one entry per person, to keep it fair, and these codes can only redeemed once per account, so if you win a code from another fansite, you can’t redeem Ditto’s code for more crowns and another Gobbler Piñata on the same account – but you can use it on a different account, give it to a friend, etc…
Have fun, good luck in the contest, and as always, Play Safe!!!
Captain Ditto and his faithful crew have tracked Criado to ‘The Temple of Sacrifice’ – which doesn’t sound like a very nice place! They have to explore this deep, dark, creepy temple and find the evil Troggies, then save Criado from a fate worse than death! This fight was extra challenging because the evil Troggy chieftain had a really nasty trick – he could suck the health out of his own men – um, frogs – and replenish his own health! It was scary, but a really good fight!!
Ditto is once again at the Darjani palace (and finds another game of Shock-A-Lock!) – he has to get the queen’s ring as the royal seal for a royal letter to get him past Rocksteady to interrogate the wizard prisoner. However, the captain of the queen’s guard cannot complete the royal letter, because some bad guys stole his pen and they are too tough for him to fight – so he asks Ditto to go and do it. Yes, you read that right – the big tough war elephant captain of the queen’s guard is sending the student from wizard city against some big tough fire bad guys to recover his pen. His PEN. Seriously – I would just go and buy him a new pen if I could….
Anyway, ditto fights some of the bad guys, and naturally doesn’t find the pen, so there will be lots more fighting and stuff and Ditto will make another video once he gets that done…
Ahoy there maties – and what do we have here? It looks like there’s something new out on the Pirate101 horizon, and Captain Ditto has caught himself a look in his trusty old spyglass! Of course Dittos’ spyglass, much like his ship, really isn’t in the best shape, so all I can share is a few small glimpses of the excitement that’s to come! Don’t worry, though – cast a weather-eye out to the other Pirate101 Fansites, as I’m sure the other Captains out there will have their lookouts up in the crows’ nest, searching for more glimpses of what’s new out there on the aether… And keep checking back with good old’ Captain Ditto, too, because I’ve definitely more excitement and adventure coming soon….
Ditto is back in Stone Town, and after defeating a bunch of bad guys right there in the courtyard of the palace, Ditto finally get sin to see the queen! It seems that the Queen and the resident sof stone town think that the Zebras stole the elephant prince, and now Ditto not only has to find the missing Wizard City students – he apparently has to stop a war! How’s that for an extra credit assignment!
Ditto has to talk to the queen’s guard to try and sort out the situation, and learns that they have a prisoner who is confirming the kidnapping story! Ditto really needs to get to the bottom of this, but the rhino guarding the prisoner – named RockSteady (kinda) – won’t let Ditto investigate with the proper documentation. Seems a bit suspicious to me!!
So, it’s been a while since Ditto has played Wizard101, and I have pretty much forgotten what I was doing. Luckily, there are handy yellow arrows to follow that will tell me where to go and what to do. First, the arrows tell Ditto to talk to the Librarian, Kilman Copperleaf. Apparently Ditto fought some bad guys and recovered the pages of Kilman’s favorite book. That was nice of me. Next, the yellow arrow tells Ditto to go defeat bandits in the market to find a purse, so Ditto does that too. Overall it’s a fun way to get back into the game and remember what we are doing…
Ditto has completed the dreaded tomb of Doooom, and he talks to the Monquistan foreman about how to move further on his epic quest through the Island of Doooom…. he goes into the jungle to find a monquistan campsite in the Dark Jungle, but it is destroyed and deserted!! Where did everyone go? Another mystery to solve on this quest of… DOOOOOM!
That’s right folks, it’s Contest Time again at Dittomonster.com!! This week we’re celebrating the awesome ‘Mount-A-Palooza’ at Wizard101, and to celebrate, Ditto will be giving away DAILY PRIZES!! What prizes? Well, Ditto will be giving away codes for 5000 Crowns, and best of all, he has codes for permanent fantasy mounts!! That’s right, Ditto has codes that randomly grant one of six great fantasy mounts:
- Blue Kirin
- Gold Kirin
- Silver Kirin
Ditto is on The Island of Doom and, to get help from the Monquistans there, he has to help them with their little ‘pest control’ problem – namely Haku, a Water Mole leader, who has the whole Water Mole population in an uprising against the Monquistans.
Ditto searches through the dark and scary tomb to find the dreaded Haku, and a massive fight ensues! But just when Ditto’s team finally defeats Haku, thinking the battle is won, something even WORSE attacks out of the shadows! Ditto and his crew are in a monster-movie fight for their life deep in the Ancient Tomb of DOOOOOOOM….
Sometimes it is hard for Ditto to come up with fun and interesting contests, but this one is probably going to wind up being one of Ditto’s favorites – though it was definitely one of the hardest to judge!! The challenge was to take a picture of a cute Pirate101 pet and give it a funny or cute caption, like all those pictures of cute kitties and hedgehogs talking about cheeseburgers and stuff, and wow did I get some GREAT entries!! Here are the winning images, congratulations to the winners and thanks everyone who entered!!! This was a lot of fun!
Ditto has a new kitty cat, who he named Miss Whiskers, but she prefers the name Susan – who can understand cats? So Ditto wants to try to get into this whole ‘Cat Video’ craze, and Susan is adorable – though she does have a bit of an attitude. It should be fun! Here’s the very first intro video with my new kitty, Miss Susan Whiskers, or whatever… What do you think?
Ditto makes it to Stone Town as an envoy for the Oliphant Queen – but the guard can’t take him to the queen until he fights off some bad guys. I have to say, this is a terrible plan – the guard is afraid to leave his post because of the bad guys are all around, but if he can’t see them then he can leave his post? What if they are hiding, or they just left to get ice cream and they come back while he’s gone? It really is a terrible plan…
Ditto does go through his deck and discusses the best way to fight fire minions, since the Rain of Fire spell does minimal damage on the first hit, which is where the prism conversion kicks in. In a case like this, even though it might take longer to get two Efreet spells out, the damage is much higher due to the prism converting all of the damage to ice.
Ditto has some great codes for Springtime Pets in Pirate101, and these are some of the cutest pets I’ve seen so far! The Yellow Marshadillow, Pink Marshadillow, Batik Eggaloon, Purple Polkaloon, Pink Chocolope and Blue Chocolope are great, fun Pirate pets, and Ditto is giving you a chance to win one!!
Last year, while exploring all the many things PAX East had to offer, Ditto came across the AbleGamers booth and was able to talk to Steve Spohn, the Editor-In-Chief of the AbleGamers Foundation, about the amazing work that AbleGamers does, helping disabled kids and veterans to get back into accessible gaming. It was the interview that meant the most to me last year, and so Steve was the first person I checked with once I had my PAX East tickets for this years’ show. AbleGamers was once again hanging out at PAX East (this time with a bunch of Pachinko machines!!) telling people all about the organization and showing off accessible gaming hardware, like an Asteroids game you can play just with your eyes!
Last year at PAX East 2012, Ditto talked to a great indy company called Twisted Pixel, and their game ‘The Maw’ ended up being Dittos’ favorite new game from the show. This year Twisted Pixel were back, bigger and badder than ever, with an all new game coming soon, called ‘LocoCycle’. It’s a crazy fusion of driving game and fighting game, where you play I.R.I.S the AI Motorcycle AND Pablo the mechanic, who is unwittingly (And Hilariously) dragged along for the ride as I.R.I.S goes haywire.
With all the ‘shock and awe’ of the PAX East expo floor, it’s really nice to find something unxpected among all the noise and flashing lights, and that’s just what Ditto found when he talked to Jared Kasl of Pagoda West Games about their fun and clever platformer, ‘Major Magnet’.
