A Plum Opportunity

Plum!

Ye pirates may partake in a pretty prosperous presentation of plunder. Peculiarly the prize box pickings are packed with’ plummy palatable goodness. We tried providing it to Clotho’s pet puppies, but predictably, it provoked pandemonium upon the poop deck. We're proudly proffering these pretties for ye pirates to pilfer.

Plumge into this month’s box that’s plumb full of fruity goodness. The plum-der includes plum dragons, parrots, tigers, dogs, and cats. It’s even possible to procure perfectly preserved plum painted ships and furniture.

From now until 3:00 PM PDT on July 23, 2018 you'll receive a free Plum Mystery Box for every $9.99 you spend on doubloons, or every month of subscription time you purchase!

For more information about the full contents of the 2018 Plum Mystery Box, as well as the official rules, please click here. Get'm quick before they begin to prune!

Full Sails Ahead

Dark Seas Full Launch

The Dread Ringer crew is happy to announce that today we’re launching the Dark Seas ship! We’ve battened down the hatches and are sailin’ out of Early Access on Steam. This doesn't mean we're done developin’ the ocean or makin’ improvements, far from it. It just means that we're ready to welcome new mates aboard. Join us by takin’ a station and puzzlin’ yer way to glory. Ye can find the game on Steam here.

One of our largest projects during Early Access was moving our servers (including the standard oceans) to something newer and more stable. This process was quite extensive, but is now complete. Huzzah!

We’ve also made a large number of changes over these past months which including the new War Galleon ship type, higher swabbie counts for pillaging, changes to island ownership, and rewards for PvP. You can review the full list here. Many of these changes were a direct result of your helpful feedback.

Parrrrty Like a Pirate

In celebration of our Full Release Launch we’re going to have a series of blue grey tournaments and competitions. The festivities will culminate in the opening the first large island for blockade on July 14th. We suggest ye start recruitin' mates and makin' plans in Parley.

New DLC - Shadow Raider Pack

We’re introducing a new DLC package to help celebrate our launch. With the Shadow Raider Pack, ye’ll pillage exclusive items to help gain a nocturnal advantage while explorin’ the Dark Seas. This special pack contains exclusive items suitable for any pirate lookin’ fer a fightin’ edge.

This pack ye will obtain the following items:

- Shadow War Galleon. A special limited edition War Galleon ship with a Shadow theme.
- Permanent Shovel bludgeon. This bludgeon comes in random colors and is exclusive to this DLC. It will never dust.
- Permanent Rogue Hat. This black hat is exclusive to this DLC and will never dust. The bandana will be selected at random between gold, red, maroon, white, or blue.
- Black Vampire Raiment coat. The secondary color will match the color of the bandana on the Rogue Hat.
- 30 day Parlor Badge. Play cards and carousing puzzles at yer local inn.
- 10 Rogue Marks. Rename yer ship using Rogue Marks.
- 3 Shadow Chromas and 3 Crimson Chromas. These allow you to dye one of the colors on a piece of clothing.
- 1 sanguine amulet. Temporarily turn your pirate into a vampire!

As with all DLC, items can only be accepted by one Pirate on the account, so choose wisely matey. Permanent hats and Shovel Bludgeons will bind to the pirate that accepts the items.

A hearty thanks for everyone who has sailed the Early Access seas and provided feedback. We’ve made a lot of changes based off of that feedback and hope to continue to do so in the future. So today we raise a mug o' rum to all ye fine mates who've stuck with us through the years!

Blastin’ its way onto the oceans: The War Galleon!

Stop by yer local shipyard and check out the newest type of ship to sail the seas, the War Galleon. This ship gives crews even more options when heading into battle.

It packs quite a punch with 24 cannons shooting double shot on each side. Be wary though, a wrong turn in battle could end up being more disastrous than on the more sturdy War Brig.

This ship is designed for a larger crew lookin’ fer a fight. It can hold up to 40 crew members and can make its mark on the blockadin' board. It’s not a merchant vessel, it’s a weapon of war.

To celebrate this new ship type, we’ve released a very special Quest Class War Galleon. This limited edition ship is the perfect way to show off the newest edition to the Puzzle Pirates fleet.

It's already set up fer a crew full o' brave pirates who can wield a blade. Conveniently, it also works for those who just like to sit around a table and share a barrel o' rum.

This heavily fortified ship will discourage anyone lookin' to storm a castle.

Maybe yer crew is lookin’ fer some adventure or they have a task they need to complete? Either way this ship is only available fer a limited time. Ye best accept this quest, and hurry to yer local shipyard.
