Hephaestus' Forged Letters

The Cat And The Canary

As I'm sure you already know, this month saw the introduction of two shiny new Oceans. Jade, of course, is our Spanish ocean, and Crimson is ocean tailored towards families and younger players. All this is in pursuit of our new goal - if you are a warm blooded mammal with even a passing interest in pirates, we want you playing YPP.

It was obvious to us that there was a need for a family ocean; though we can't allow younger children on to the main oceans, that didn't stop them trying! And really, there's nothing sadder for us than having to exclude a polite, enthusiastic young player just because they're a bit greener than we'd like. Hence, Crimson. But there is another section of the internet who are as yet uncatered to, and yet who show an almost unconquerable desire to participate in the game.

I speak, of course, of cats.

If you have a cat, know a cat, or live in the neighbourhood of a particularly intrusive cat, you will know that there is nothing a cat likes better, while you're carpenting in a blockade, than to leap on to the keyboard and join in. And from many of the "sldhfodidsssssdddddd" type petitions we receive, I can only presume that these cats are writing in in their hundreds to tell us all about it.

Well, their wait is almost over! Because we are now in the final testing stages of the first of our Yellow oceans, which will be specifically tailored towards pets. The first ocean will be Canary, and be tailored towards our feline friends.

But what changes will be made?

The first, and most obvious change - Humans Out, Cats In.

And of course, the puzzles will need to be changed in order to appeal to cats. This you can see here, with the new version of Bilging, which is 100% shinier and 200% janglier than before.

Pillaging will have changed. Much as rum needed to be removed for Crimson, cats also have their own specific needs:

And finally, one could not expect cats to be interested in defeating brigands:

I think you'll agree, exciting stuff, that's sure to please your furry companion. Tune in next month for news of the Violet Ocean, our joint project with SETI, which will be transmitting the client into the furthest depths of space, and analysing SETI data looking for Swordfighting data packets.

A milk ocean might be ok for a little while, but it'd spoil very quickly.

Sinking and planking have been removed from Canary, as cats *really* don't like it.

Drinking is a lot less complex, as there's only one vessel, the saucer.

Hmmm, this ocean does NOT look like a safe place for Aarghbird to play. :( Perhaps his alternate pirate Yarrcat could find a home here. :)

I look forward to the launch of this new ocean. I assume the fog in CI will come on little cat feet...

Every person desires sneakers, both to accomplish sport or to appear great. At the moment you might be feeling distraught with all the pair of footwear on your foot, that is out-of-date and banal. They even cause you to truly feel shameful. You would like to be cool to the industry. You want the main focus of warm woman. You want a little something interesting. It really is evident that some sportswear giants are presenting this sort of kicks. Nike Air Yeezy, a Nike new solution introduced new a long time, is a single of them. These kicks, devoid of a doubt quite possibly the most required sneakers in the 2009 trend period, absolutely hold the allure to make you enchanted. These fancy stuffs originally make you amazing. For that reason, you're cool. http://www.cheapairyeezy2.com/
