How to take a Screenshot!
( Advice is to close chat box)
Players can quickly take a screenshot now using the Print Screen button on their keyboard. This will save the file in your C:/Program Files/KingsIsle Entertainment/Wizard101/Bin folder (note this will capture your entire screen, so if you are running Wizard windowed, it will capture everything on your screen) You will see the following text to let you know you took a screenshot. In your email make sure to state which image is A,B or C

Another way to take a screenshot using your Print Screen button. Follow these steps:
while in the game, press Alt+PrtScn buttons
Alt+Tab to desktop and start MSPaint or similar application
create new image file
press Ctrl+V or otherwise paste the clipboard content
save the file in a safe place you'll remember 

(Desktop is what I use) I would name your screenshot A,B or C
You can then either drag your screenshot into your email or add it as attachment to email to my contest email.

Wizard101 Test Realm July 2014 - Magical Fishing & More!

 Wizard101 test realm is back and with fishing!!  Now I know, I know! I have been asking for this ever since housing came out. I so wanted to be able to fish at my houses and maybe one day we will .  Right now we can fish in Wizard City, Krokotopia, Grizzleheim, and Mooshu, via test realm Notes Page.  Wouldn't it be grand if we could have a fishing house?? Can I hear a Yes? I know I would.



Fishing is very simple. You cast your lure and wait till the lure is completely underwater , (as in image above), then hit the space key.  There are many guides being created at Wizard101 Central Test Realm Guides  including one for types of fish/with schools they are. You can catch fish or treasure chests. I have even caught a Tank to hold the fish in !


Fish tanks go in your house as furniture, these tanks can show off your biggest or most unique fish, there is a limit of one fish per tank. These tanks count as one item space ,the fish doesn't count as far as I could tell, only the tank. Cool huh? I going to create a tank house just for fish tanks.
 New Zafarian Furniture!!!

Can I have a YES!!!! New furniture from Zafaria and there are simply amazing looking!! From outdoor statues to some of the most detailed flooring and wallpaper I have seen. I about died when i saw that paw print paper. 
Last on today's post is Castle Block crafting.  Castle Blocks Recipes can be found in Wizard City, Shopping District from Lloyd FallingWater, near the fountain . I took a picture of some of the pieces I haven't seen before. These recipes are very simple to craft too. Well that's all for today see you in Test realm. For test realm schedule check out updates page. See you in Test realm.

Guest Blogger -Matthew Shadowblade

My mind has been crafting Theories recently involving Falmea’s ‘Big Summer Update’. So what if this ‘Big Summer Update’ is coming right in June or August, when the Monthly Newsletter comes out, just like they did with Khrysalis Part 2. What if it’s Krokotopia Related? Remember that in the portion in the May 2014 Producer’s Letter, where Falmea talked about the ‘Big Summer Update’ there was a picture of Manders building a castle, lifting up a Mander in a Gobbler Suit with a pulley?

 I’m using Google Chrome and I right clicked on the image, then clicked ‘Open image in new tab’. Once I did, I looked at the web address and near the end, it had the web address and near the end, it wrote “…-mander-castle-…” so that must have been the name of the picture! Mander Castle! So what if this big summer update involves Krokotopia and Manders? And remember when we did Briskbreeze Tower, at the end once you defeated the final boss in Briskbreeze Tower, a wraith by the name of Orrick Nightglider, he dropped 2 key-rings. One is made of bones, the other is covered in hieroglyphics. What it means by key-rings, I have no idea. Perhaps it means one is a key, the other is a ring? If so, the bone-composed one is a Key, because there’s that small picture next to the dialogue box that tells you, and there’s a bone key there. In this case, I don’t think so. They’re both keys, because it says, “One is made of bones, and the other is covered in hieroglyphics.” So I’m not sure what it means by the ring part in key-ring. Anyway, Lieutenant Culpepper, the guy you’re trying to rescue, says stuff like “He told me something was coming to the Spiral…and that Krokotopia was the next step. How can something be ‘coming’ to the Spiral?” After that, Kingsisle never led up on this storyline. 

What if this ‘Something’ that’s ‘Coming’ to the Spiral is actually Old Cob and his reign of terror? What if we’re traveling to Krokotopia using this Hieroglyphics covered key-ring to open up Mander Castle? What if Mander Castle is a dungeon prequest meant to be a sneak peak into the next arc, just like the Warehouse was for the 2nd arc? What if Mander Castle is being built on top of one of those broken up islands, perhaps the one above the Spiral Chamber? What if that island has a portal leading to wherever Mander Castle is? I’ve seen a teleporter on top of that very island, and it’s inaccessible currently.

I’ll leave it at that, I’d like to hear your guys’ opinions on this, and I’d also like to hear your guys’ very own Theories.

Want to be a Guest Poster?


Want to be a guest mini blogger on Paige's Page?

A guest blogger is a player that sends in a short article to have posted right here on Paige's Page.  These posts are normally no longer than 3 paragraphs, with a couple of images added if you choose. 

You can talk about either Pirate101, Wizard101 , FreeKI Games Trivia or even Grub Guardian. There will be one Guest Poster a month, for each game. Maybe you have a really awesome house, housing item you would love ingame or battle you want to talk about.


Rules for Guest Mini Bloggers

1.  Write a post about KingsIsle games with no more than 3 paragraphs and send it along with a couple of  images to help players understand what you're talking about.  I know not everyone has the best spelling & grammar, but as long as it's well written it can be posted.

2.  Send your post to Paige@paigemoonshade.com. Please include your Wizard or Pirate name only. (no real information will be posted)

3. Paige's Page is a G rated, family friendly blog. If your post is not family friend or speaks negatively it will not be posted. (opinions are different than pure negativity) Example: I love this house but wish there was more areas to decorate, is an opinion.

4.  All posts must be in English. If you use Pirate speak for Pirate101 posts it needs to be family friendly, remember we pirates drink yum ;). I will accept posts on any aspect of  KingsIsle games, as long as it's family friendly.  I know , so many things to talk about right?

5. Have fun with your post. the more excitement you offer the better the chance it will be read.

I'll List a few of the lower priced items you can get my playing FreeKI Games Trivia. (List at bottom of post)

So you say your not that good at Trivia? 2 Simple steps to help you get your 100 daily crowns.
