to bring your doom and prepare for war...
by moonlit curse and cultist roar..
we dance and chant and into this volcano pour...
snakes and hate and blood and gore...
And from the world's black belly flows our enlightened and grim lore!
The Enlightened Ones gather together followers for Vargas the Mad from far and wide. Their madness is spreading faster than normal, and larger numbers of cultists are being reported on nearby cursed isles. Ye can’t be sure why, but may it be related to the recent full moon? Whispers from brave adventurers say the followers take longer to regroup between fights, allowing pirates a bit more time to plunder Vargas the Mad’s riches!
Look lively or ye may be lost to the noxious fog!

The Smuggler’s Guild is circulating information among members about a new series of Black Boxes. We’ve managed to get our hands on the information and decoded it for ye pirates. The skeletal monkey has gone into hiding, but Series 5 will have a new black raven familiar. For those nights when ye need to blend into the darkness, black seals, pigs and rabbits have been added to the box.
Ye’ll also find new Black Box trinkets that can be held in portraits. Be sure to take yer trinkets to a Trading Post, as there are whispers of a new familiar scurrying in from the jungle. Purchase a Spider Box artifact and ye'll have a creepy-crawly all yer own!
