Lately I've been sort of busy playing a very interesting game. Maybe some of you have heard of it or play it as well. It's called Wizard101. There's also a pirate version called Pirate101. They're fun games. I sort of just started playing them, but I really like them so far. You get to create a character, choose what kind of magical element or fighting style you want, design things like flags and ships, buy things such as pets and mounts, get all kinds of neat equipment, decorate houses and castles, and of course there's quests you can go on where you fight enemies and stuff. They're a little different, obviously, but they have a similar feel to them with similar game play and graphics. I like both, but so far, I personally prefer the wizard version. I've always had a fondness for magic and fantasy. I slightly prefer it over pirates.
In the wizard game, you have a choice of seven elemental types of magic: Fire, Ice, Storm, Life, Death, Balance, and Myth. Some are obvious as to what they are and what they do, like fire and ice. They're pretty straightforward. Storm is sort of a mix of lightning and water based magic. Fire, Ice, and Storm can all summon different types of elemental creatures. Life is mostly healing magic, with some woodland type creatures that can be summoned. Death uses ghouls and other monsters to deal damage and heal themselves. Balance is a little odd, using creatures like beetles and scorpions, while being able to change the rules of battle. Last but not least is Myth, the one I chose. Myth, more than the others, focuses on summoning creatures to fight for you. You can summon minions, like golems and trolls, that can use the same magic as you. You can also summon bats, cyclopes, minotaurs, earthquakes, etc.
I love my magic. My minions are cool and strong, while showing slight personality traits. I find it funny how when I summon a troll, he always looks confused, like "Where am I? What am I doing here? Why was I summoned?" and he just stands there for a moment, looking around as he scratches his head. Then he sees the enemy, and he's like, "Oh! Enemy sighted! Must destroy!" Then he readies his spiked club and attacks with full force. And my cyclops is such a show-off. When I summon him, he holds his head high and flexes his muscles. Then when he slams his hammer on the ground, he actually causes a rift in the battle stage. Sometimes he'll even yell at the enemy, which increases his attack power, not like he needs the boost, though. And my Blood Bats remind me of like brown Golbat. They spit acid, they always have their mouth open, and they have a similar body type. They also have their tongue out all the time and look at their foe like, "Oh, what are you? Are you tasty? Do you taste good with ketchup?" Then they usually either bite them, spit acid, or fly around them like they're using a Wing Attack or something. Seriously, it's a Golbat. I don't mind, though, I mean, I do love Pokemon. Heck, I even have a Crobat on one of my teams. I also have a pixie or fairy thing to heal me, and two storm spells: Thunder Snake and Lightning Bats. You can sort of have a secondary element as you level up and gain training points. I'm kind of working on Storm. Storm has great attack power, but as my spells constantly remind me, poor accuracy. Seriously, I get so mad at my snakes and bats sometimes, because I can'y always rely on them. I mean, they do great when they decide to work, but they don't always want to help me. My trolls and cyclops do better, but sometimes even they don't work. Oh, I also have a Fire Cat spell that I got from an amulet, but it doesn't always work either.
I also have three pets: A flying pink pig (Miss Dakota, got her for free), a small Blood Bat (Lady Chance, she's so cute! At least, I think so anyway), and a mini, gold and black dragon (Prince Shadow, he's my buddy). I bought the dragon myself, chose his colors and his name. I based his colors and name off my dog, Shadow, a Golden Retriever/German Shepard mix. Shadow is mostly golden brown with black markings. I also had a cat named Prince once, so that explains the first part of his name. And I also had a dog named Chance, and I also named her Lady because it sort of sounds like Lady Luck. It also could be a reference to the dog Lady from Lady and the Tramp. I've trained all three, and they're currently teenagers. You train them sort of like you would Pokemon, and they can compete against other pets, or possibly learn skills that will help you out in battle. They're not very useful yet, but I'm working with them.
And that's mostly what I've been up to lately. It's a fun game, but I sort of hate how you would have to spend real life money to get most of the good stuff, and even access certain areas in the game world. I have money, I'm just not sure I want to spend it on the game. Oh well. It's still fun anyway. If anyone of you play this game or would like to, I'd be happy to make friends and even join groups in-game. My character's name is Sarai Wyrmpyre. She's currently a level 11 Conjurer, with the title of an Undead Hunter. So if anyone wants to track me down or meet me in game, I don't mind. I'm mostly focusing on training my character right now, and I'm doing most of my training in Triton Avenue. So hunt me down if you want to. I'll likely be slaying undead monsters, or fighting the Kraken boss. As they say in these games, see you in the Spiral, or not, that's your choice.
