Ahoy, ladies and blogglemen! I'd never have imagined mere soup to be such a hotly contested topic. (Or, in the case of gazpacho, a coldly contested topic). I've got something planned for this week's question, but first, the forums. There were quite a few questions asked about the forums in the comments to my last post. Most of the answers to them have already been posted in the forums, and the ones which haven't been, I'm not in a good position to answer as I'm not based in the office. (I am a sad Gaea. I want a tentacle couch too.) I would, however, like to re-reassure you that your passwords and credit card information are safe.
Onwards! As a new OM, I'm spending quite a lot of time hanging around on the docks. A lot of newer pirates have never seen an OM before, and once they get past "why is your name blue?" (because I'm a game employee), and "do you get paid?" (yes), and when they've moved on to "can I be an OM?" (if you apply when they're hiring, maybe), they want to know if I used to be a player (no, I'm very loyal. Oh. Oh, I see.) Joking aside, newer and experienced players have been asking me who my "civilian" pirate is, and who the other OMs' pirates are. Now, I checked, and while I can't tell you explicitly, what I can do is offer you some clues. If you're in possession of a fine deductive mind and a bit of patience, this should narrow it down a bit.
There you have it: tantalizing clues about the real-life identities of the Oceanmasters. For the record, I am only lying about one item. None of us have enough chewing gum to hold together that much balsa wood. Yet.
Next week on QOTW: Veni, vidi... vinci?
