A Tale o' Misadventure!

Ye needs secrecy, skill, and a fair bit o' good luck to be a successful smuggler. The scurvy dogs of the crew, Miss Fortune, found themselves cursed with bad luck at every turn of the tide. Step aboard this bizarre vessel and hear the tall tale about their accursed journey.

Lazy Walter booched navigation (again) and the ship sailed off the charted course! They spent weeks adrift at sea without sighting a single brigand and then calamity struck! They were shipwrecked in a mysterious ship graveyard. After too much sloppy work and many, many pig's breakfasts, they cobbled together something seaworthy and were able to make it back to port.

Now that they're home, they've given up the smugglin' trade. They're offering 3-hour tours around yer favorite archipelago while they regale ye with the tale of their fateful cruise. Don't worry about a bit o' bad luck. Stop by yer local shipyard and add a Calamity Class Cutter to yer collection today! The Calamity Class Cutter will be available through June 30, 2015.

Credit is awarded for reaching the melee, whether you win or lose.

Invaders From Space!

For years, pirates have been the apex predator of the seas, pillaging and plundering as they see fit without fear of reprisal - but that's all about to change! Extraterrestrial life forms have invaded the Oceans and now the hunters have become the hunted. What they want is a mystery but their force is undeniable!

Introducing Alien Attack! a brand new pillaging expedition!

EXPERIENCE:

OUT OF THIS WORLD THRILLS! - Escape the clutches of your abductors and fight your way back to your ship

OUT OF THIS WORLD CHILLS! - Run a gauntlet of Alien Scout, Hunter and Abductor ships and strange "Blue Fire" fences

OUT OF THIS WORLD BOOTY! - Can you escape not only with your lives but with a hold full of Alien Pods containing never before seen treasures?

Be alert! The seas are no longer safe! Abductions can happen at any moment and without warning. Once abducted your crew must fight its way through the alien hordes to reach your ship. That would be difficult enough, but that's not the end of it. The invading aliens do not take escape lightly and will stop at nothing to recapture you. Weave your way through searching Scout ships whose spotlights will pinpoint your location for the waiting Hunter ships - their strange cannons of light can tear through even the most reinforced hulls like a hot knife through butter. Strange barriers of blue fire will temporarily block your path so timing is of the utmost important. Worst of all is the massive Abductor ship - those that are recaptured have never been heard from again.

Enterprising Captains have been able to turn misfortune into great fortune, however. Scattered around the Alien Mothership are strange glowing pods filled with interstellar trinkets and treasures from countless alien worlds. Attempting to snatch them up is a great risk with the invading aliens hot on your heels - but the rewards are worth it!

The Alien Attack expedition is available starting today, April 1, 2015!

Hopping Herbage!

Did someone forget to give the gardeners their ration of rum? The new Verdant Class Baghlah looks a bit overgrown. There's something unsettling and wild about this new ship, so ye pirates will want to keep a weather eye out for indications of curses and other mischief while we take a tour.

The main deck is covered in wild flowered vines and thick overgrowth, and even the ship's wheel has been replaced by a giant sun flower. The reflecting pond in the main hold is barely visible with all the green overgrowth. Pay close attention as ye wander this ship - ye never know what's hidden among all those plants!

The rabbits say ye may want to give the order to grab a hammer and man the bilge pumps. The aft hold is takin' on water! Did ye notice, the number of rabbits on this ship has multiplied compared to the Verdant Class Sloop. Where be th' swabbies? Perhaps they've gone to the cabin to alert the captain of the excess water in the hold.

Avast, me hearties! There be an ancient curse upon this vessel causing all the crew to be transformed into rabbits! The crew don't seem too upset by this transformation, and even seem content in their current state. They'll gladly give ye a tour through their rabbit warrens and let ye take the wheel for a spin. Who knows what ye'll find down the rabbit hole....

Set a course for a hopping good time and visit yer local shipyard today! The Verdant Class Baghlah will be available through April 30, 2015.
