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The main deck is covered in wild flowered vines and thick overgrowth, and even the ship's wheel has been replaced by a giant sun flower.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.

Festive Big Feet in Tiny Boxes!

Ye may remember the Eggnog Incidence of 2013 resulting in Yeti pets being squished into tiny boxes by the crazed developers. While the Department o' Mythical Creatures discouraged all pirates from opening Yeti Boxes, they've recently discovered the Yeti don't mind the small boxes at all. In fact, they enjoy the cozy space since it reminds them of their North Pole igloos. The Department has also begrudgingly agreed that awesome-looking Yeti wandering around the island don't have a negative impact on pirate life and add to the atmosphere of most pirate gatherings.

Festive!

With the recent opening of a portal between the oceans and the North Pole, Yeti have been appearing in more locations and they've embraced the festive holiday season with red, green and ice blue hats. For each $9.99 spent in a single purchase, receive a Yeti Box! Yeti pets are still rare and elusive creatures, so these seasonal boxes also contain Ice Blue Chroma, Yeti dolls and furniture, Holiday Favors, and Ice Blue Trinkets!

From now until 3:00 PM PST on January 2nd, 2015, you'll earn a free Yeti 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 Yeti Box, as well as the official rules, please click here.

A Krak In The Ice!

His intense vendetta is threatening the holiday season! Collect the scattered toys and use them to help Captain Snowbeard track down and defeat the Frost Kraken and save the day!

Each ocean has been divided into 5 teams, with pirates from the same crew all being placed on the same team. Pirates can participate and earn points for their team by defeating Brigands and Barbarians to win toy parts and assembling them into Gunwhales, Soldier Scouts, and Octo Bombers trophies near the docks on certain islands. Full details can be found here.

The competition ends on Friday, January 2nd at 3 PM PST.
