We're celebratin' World Oceans Day with an Open Markets Event! Set sail for adventure, pillagin, and a bit o' monkey business!

  • Markets are paying up to 25% more for fruit.*
  • Gem thieves are less active, so large quantities of gems are more likely to make it through a voyage.
  • Merchant brigands are operating at an increased rate and shipping their goods to distant destinations. Their attraction to trading posts is increased.
  • Compelled by an abundance of fruit, encounters with the mischievous Monkey Boat are more common.
  • Brigand and barbarian ships are more attracted to islands with a Black Market and are carrying more booty.

The Open Markets event will be active until June 10th at 3:00 PM PST. The ocean calls, mateys!

*Market owners won't be offering this rate until after the 4AM reboot on June 5. They muttered somethin' about labor limits.

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.
