Tropical Getaway!

Everyone loves to get away to a little island that's off the beaten path. A place where ye can sip fancy rum drinks with tiny umbrellas, while lounging on a tropical beach. Relaxing on the perfect sand knowing yer latest treasure is safely hidden away. Now, take a little bit of that paradise with ye out to sea with the limited edition Tropic Class Sloop!

Plenty of beautiful sand, palm trees and tiki totems to make yer most boring voyage a delight. Dip yer toes in the tropical waters while ye patch that pesky hole. The back breaking work of loading a cannon becomes a pleasure with the sand between yer toes and cooling tropical breezes on yer back. Unwind after a long voyage to the soothing tones of the mermaid's song.

Bermuda? The Bahamas? Come on, pretty parrot! Let's sail away on our very own Tropic Class Sloop! Visit yer local shipyard to get your own little piece of paradise now through November 30, 2015.

Monthly Reward and Stockpile for Winter!


Own a subscription or make a purchase of $9.99 or more in November to receive a Royal Blue Autumn Tapestry.

Time to stockpile rations for the coming winter! Forage up some fruit to help ye avoid scurvy, gems to polish and shine, and gold to keep yer spirits high. Yarr, the shinies! Earn November's Seal o'Piracy by completing 2 sessions of foraging.

Plunder Sweet Candy!

Frighteningly cute!

Tis again the bewitched season of Halloween, which means time to plunder candy! Lucky pirates may be awarded Ghastly Trinkets from Sea Monster Lairs and Brigand King loot. Beware! There's an increase in monster activity in Sea Monster Lairs! Don't let that slow down yer adventure. More monsters means more loot to plunder!

Take yer pile o’ sweets over to the Trading Post. Exchange ghastly trinkets for monster dolls! New this year, ye'll be frightened by the out of this world cuteness of the Space Oddity, Sea Creature and Cat Lass. If ye have old candy from previous years, ye'll need to sort it out. Ghastly trinkets from last year can be traded for the current dolls, but ye olde Trick or Trinket candies can only be used on older dolls!

Once ye have yer fill of sweetened treats and expanded yer monster doll collection, use the sugar rush to beat back the hordes of skellies, zombies and werewolves that assail the land!

The oceans run red, and the candy madness last until November 3, 2015!

Ferocious Gold Boxes!

The leaves are changing, pumpkins are everywhere, and fall colors have arrived in Gold Boxes! Toucan familiars are sporting brown, yellow, orange and maroon. Gemstone Sea turtle pets are shiny diamond and ruby. Ye'll enjoy the warmth added by chocolate chroma and trinkets.

The new Brigand King furniture for October features the Widow Queen! Furniture items and statues of the Black Veil will allow you to establish a lair of yer own.

Find Gold Boxes at your island bank until October 12th at 3 PM PDT. Ye can find the full list of prizes, right here.

tAStee bRaaiNs!

As the nights begin to lengthen, strange stories have been heard by the fire or over a pint of rum at the local inns. Whispers of a ghostly ship drifting just off shore; a strange green glow in the waters near the ship; a strange new zombie outbreak. Are ye confident enough to join a band o' brave pirates and venture aboard the abandoned ship to investigate?

The ship looks deserted, but ye'd be foolhardy to think there's not a soul aboard. If ye can escape the horror of the main cabin, be on the lookout for the nefarious Baron Zomedi. What abominable plan does he have for these oceans? Below deck ye may find more clues. Take the shortcut through the graveyard to his secret lair - that looks safe, right?

Oh, the horror! Shamble toward yer local shipyard as quickly as ye can. The Undead Class Sloop is only available through November 1, 2015!

Monthly Reward and Exploring!


Own a subscription or make a purchase of $9.99 or more in October to receive a Vargas the Mad Royal Carpet. This is the fourth furniture item in the Brigand King carpet series!

Make a list and check it twice! Ye don't want to set sail for the far reaches of unexplored ocean without all yer provisions! Once ye've loaded up yer hold with enough rum, set sail for adventure! Earn October's Seal o'Piracy by performing 2 different actions to earn your pirate Explorer Reputation.

Esteemed Explorers!

The Imperial Expeditionary Society is an esteemed organization with the goal to explore and document the natural world. They are also known to boast at length about their incredible feats and experiences. An exclusive group with a strict dress code and social gatherings, they're also known to carry lavish curiosities and trinkets on their ships. Valuable plunder for pirates!

Alas, the Imperial Expeditionary Society rarely sails in these oceans, as they don't appreciate the pirate code of conduct. One member peered through his monocle and scoffed at the mention of pirates. Recently, a Society ship was commandeered by a few mateys, and now it's for sale in yer local shipyard! Too strange to strip down and sell for booty, this ship will inspire ye to set off on adventure to the unknown!

Enjoy the benefits of membership as ye gather around the Society's hidden bar to share a barrel o' rum and yer grand tales of adventure. Dress in yer finest as ye set off with esteem company to discover the unknown!

The Explorer Class Sloop* will be available from yer local shipyard through September 30, 2015!

*Pirates are civilized. No animals were harmed in the creation of this ship.
