Basic:Creating a Character

From Pirate101 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Creating a character for Pirate101 takes place at the start of the in-game tutorial.

Boochbeard and Mr. Gandry come to break you out of the brig, and in determining whether or not you are the pirate they are looking for, they ask a series of questions tied to who you are.

Be sure about your choices, as they can never be changed.

Note: Questions 2, 3, and 4 can be skipped and the results manually chosen by clicking Skip in the top right.

In selecting whether you are a boy or a girl, you get a randomly generated pirate character. You will get to specifically choose your appearance later (see below). However, if you really don't like the random appearance, click on 'Boy' or 'Girl' again to change the appearance as many times as you want.

Next, you get to select your name. You can generate a name by picking from three lists: adjective, first name, and last name.

You have to have a first name, but the other two can be blank. See Character Names for a full list of options.

Starting Play

After creating your very first Pirate, he/she will be taken to the Tutorial, which goes over the basics of the game. If you have already completed the tutorial on another character, you will have the option to repeat the Tutorial or skip it. Either option will eventually land your new Pirate in Captain Avery's Office for the start of your pirating adventure alongside your starting Companion.

Your newly created Pirate will be visible on the Character Selection screen along with any other characters you have created. Each time you play, you choose which Pirate to adventure with by clicking them on this screen.

    • If you want to make another Pirate, press the NEW button in the bottom right of this screen.
    • Click PLAY to join your selected Pirate in the Spiral.
    • All new Pirates begin the game by creating a character, and then taking the Tutorial.
    • To delete a Pirate you aren't happy with, click the DELETE button and follow the instructions by typing YOHOHO! to confirm the deletion.

Tutorial Tips will appear for new pirates as they progress through the game, to help them learn.
