Only Phules rush in...

...where angels fear to tread.

Hey there, you (eventual) Skyway Scallywags of Our Spir@l !

"So, there I was....", studiously re-checking every nook and cranny of the Pirate 101 Website, when an image in the "General Concept Art" flashed by.

"Whoa, whoa, whoa! Full Stop! Come about, lads! 5 Dots in! Bring that graphic back up, with a will!"

Phule Character Art

Well, well, what have we here? Another escapee from a Masquerade Ball? Is this a future companion? Hopefully we won't be fighting a Tsunami of clowns, because this character doesn't quite look like they do kid's parties. Is there a Pirate101 BatMan? Really digging the Yin/Yang motif. Who knows? Perhaps it's a "Nod of thanks" to Jester, over at Pirate 101 Central , in recognition for years of Community Support.

I was over at Witchwarrior101, (yay! She's back!), and Cassandra says the Armada reminds her of 'V for Vendetta', and having read that, I can't help but really see some 'V' in this 'Phule', which, in the long run, tells me nothing, because 'V' was quite the anti-typical hero.

KingsIsle, you're killin' me, here! I'll theorycraft me'self to death, I will! What am I saying? I can't be mad at KI, only my own impatience. So, what are your thoughts?


Oh, Pirate 101, I can't help falling in love with you!

Be Thee Well

Edit: Darn it, Autumn, *check* to make sure the video is embedded *before* you publish, geesh!

If Valencia is modeled after Italy (Venice) and the Armada is stationed at Valencia, then those pictures remind me of the traditional Carnival costumes held in (real-life) Venice once a year.

*totally* agree. reminds me of the Ballroom scene in "Labyrinth"
