Don’t let that stash of fruit rot in the hold of your ship! Old Salts around the ocean have been whispering about markets paying more for fruit and gem thieves being lazy varmints. They also report a parrot squakin’ about merchant and brigand ships sailin' with a mighty fine bit o' booty aboard.
Grab yer hearties and set out to sea to make yer own late fall haul!
In addition to open markets, Crimson Jim is having an inventory reduction sale! He is including special items free when ye purchase doubloons or subscription time.

Maties! Starting November 14th, we will be looking for your feedback on the game’s new user interface. Tablet users of Puzzle Pirates will recognize this UI. The developers have been working hard to bring the new UI to the desktop version of the game.
To access this alpha phase of testing, you will need to download and install a special Ice Ocean client to your computer. A link to the client download and further information about this testing can be found here. Please note that during this phase of testing, access is restricted to current subscribers or players who have purchased at least 24 doubloons in the last 30 days.
Please post feedback in the Ice Discussion section of the forums. Be sure to check the "Puzzle Pirates X" sticky at the top for feedback guidelines. This is an alpha test for the new UI, meaning it is still in early development and further changes will be made. The developers want to hear your feedback and observations of the new UI and its performance.
Once you've spent some time with the new UI, please fill out our feedback survey before November 21.
This month the stars aligned to produce a limited edition sloop of astronomical significance. Navigators can stow away the sextant while on the Celestial Class Sloop, as the heavens are now within reach. Featuring a star to guide ye and haunted wall lamps to enhance the mystic connection to heavenly beyond, ye should never lose yer way.
In the cabin there are adequate beds and hammocks to allow ye to sleep the day away as ye prepare for yer nocturnal examination of the celestial frontier.
The main deck features a larger-than-life telescope. This astral wonder has been modified to allow access for studious pirates in the hold. Consult charts, celestial globes and books from below deck without the hassle of ordering swabbies to haul them about the ship.
Also in the hold, find access to yer daily horoscope. This sage advice* is customized for each pirate individually and will change daily. Will it help yer pirate navigate difficult waters or find yer true talents? Identify yer zodiac and ponder this otherworldly counsel.
Each ship includes a planetarium below the hold. This space is perfect for yer officers in training - lock em below to learn their navigational points! Do they know where to find Polaris, and where the second star to starboard will lead? Or ye can use it for a party that is out of this world!
Don’t wait for the next planetary alignment, because the Celestial Class Sloop will only be available until December 16, 2013!
