Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't been posting in awhile! Life's been busy with school starting.
Anyway, let's go to the news. Kingsisle has found some bugs in the game, some of which include getting stuck in walls in Celestia, mounts like the Moonlight, Sunshine, and Starshine ponies all having their spots removed. (Read the full list here: https://www.wizard101.com/game/news/september2012)
Also, Kingsisle has released the Phoenix hoard pack! This pack is based on Dragonspyre, and includes some cool stuff like the 2-seater Phoenix mount, the Gargoyle pet, among others. There has been some drama involving the packs recently, but so far this pack doesn't seem to have any problems with it. :)

Finally, the Friend Finder! Simply put, you would ask your friend for their friend finder code, he would enter your code, and you would be friends in any and all Kingsisle games! (Read about it here: https://www.wizard101.com/game/update-notes/september2012#behindthescenes)
Remember, if you stand too close to the fire, you're gonna get burned!
