New Year at the Keep

Hi all,

This has been a very interesting year in the Spiral and it has been a lot of fun sharing it with you all.  Some of the more notable things that have happened include:

  • The emergence of Our Wizard's Keep online, which has been a lot of fun to share our experiences and learnings with other Wizards
  • Tabitha has joined us in the Spiral, giving us another new friend reminding us of all the fun that we had as we first found our way around the Wizard101 world
  • Blaze hit level 90 just so he could get some of the Aquila gear he has been so keen on :)

It was a year where rumours ran rife about the future of Wizard101 as Pirate101 takes off and we saw the demise of a number of major Disney titles.  Well, Kings Isle put pay to those rumours in the best possible way...and haven't let us down either with:

  • Aquila coming online, with its great new gear, secret bosses and level specific dungeons
  • Halloween has seen Dworgn open the secret gate in the back of Triton Avenue, revealing the Nosferabbit and the great Gardening Spell drops from the battles there
  • Khrysalis Part 1 and the emergence of Shadow Magic have changed the game at many different levels, both questing and, more importantly, in the PvP Arena
  • The new gear and items in the Yuletide pack have also introduced the adorable Rescue Rover, the big loveable dog that lopes along beside you 
  • The promise of Kyrysalis Part 2 early in 2014 just to tempt us all with where this game is going to take us next!
With this level of ongoing expansion and investment, there is plenty of life in this game yet - much to the excitement of all of us fans :)
  • Here at the Keep we also embarked on a couple of things we never thought we would, including:
  • Writing an eBook on Gardening (with all sorts of hints, tips and little known facts), that actually turned into 2 eBooks!!  Where else can you find:
    • How many plots for a Small plot, Medium plot and Large plot garden?
    • How many plots can a Large Area spell service?
    • What is all of the Energy gear in the Spiral and where can you get it?
    • How to make your Energy stretch to go further?
    • and much, much more...all in one place?
    • (see the links on the right to get your own copy of these free eBooks)
  • We tested out our terrible vocal chords and created a video for the 12 Days of Christmas Wizard101 Style :)
  • And a very special, highly secret project that hopefully will provide assistance to all Wizards of the Spiral from the day your new Wizard begins their Wizarding journey all the way through to the highest and most experienced Wizards - but more about this in the first week of the New Year :)
2014 in the world of Wizard101 will be bigger and better than 2013. We hope you choose to join us as we keep sharing what we do and learn.  And if there is anything you want to know more about, just drop us a line and we'll do our best to help you out.

From all of us here at Our Wizard's Keep, have a wonderful and safe New Year's Eve and a fantastic 2014.

...and remember to have FUN!

Morgrim, Alia, Tabitha, Blaze and the rest of the family.



  1. Wishing you all a very happy and fun filled New Year too!

    (And I did so love your Christmas video :D )

  2. Thanks Scarlet - it was a lot of fun putting it together, and it is great to hear that others enjoyed it. We wanted to share a little Christmas fun with other Wizards, and I'm really stoked because I think we achieved that!
