Frozen Cargo

Ice Box

Years ago, a Valkyrie Class Sloop charted for a long oceanic voyage never arrived in port. After exhaustive searches, explorers have found her remains grounded on icy shores. While the cargo has been recovered, there’s still no explanation fer why it was off course nor the whereabouts of her crew. The frozen cargo appears to be intact so, now is yer chance to claim it as yers.

Sealpocalypse and a Booched Box

Three winters ago, an unfathomable (albeit adorable) EVIL arose in the frozen north that threatened to engulf the ocean. The return of the dread seal king A'uk was narrowly stopped through the combined bravery of pirating folk and the spirits of a lost race of warrior penguins.

Hark! Evil once more rears its sinister head! The seal-sorceress X'ukara, mother of A'uk, has risen from the snows to punish the realm for her son's imprisonment. She has once more called forth the legions of A'uk to wreak her vengeance!

Arise ye pirates and embrace yer inner penguin! The fate of the very ocean hangs in the balance!

Each ocean has been divided into 4 teams, with pirates from the same crew all being placed on the same team. Pirates can participate and earn points for their team by raiding Sealperial Outposts, collecting artefact pieces and assembling them near the docks on certain islands. Crafting 3 copies of the same artefacts grants Swashbuckling Penguins furniture items:

Ancient Penguin Fetish, Ancient Seal Fetish and X’ukara Statue

The competition ends on Wednesday, January 2nd.

Booched!

While our backs were turned, some magenta monkeys pilfered our eggnog and gained access to the dye facilities, resultin' in color combinations that nature ne'er intended! Ravens, Monkeys, Toucans, Pets, 'n more have fallen victim to these color obsessed bandits.*

From now until 3:00 PM PDT on January 2, 2018 you'll receive a free Booch 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 Booch Box, as well as the official rules, please click here.

Cranberried Treasure

Gold Box

After plunder, there’s one thing a pirate wants to have after a long sail on frozen seas, a feast! At this time of year, nothin’ complements a pirate feast like a side of cranberry (apart from rum, but that’s a given). Unfortunately our shipment of cranberry sauce hit rough seas and covered some of our Gold Boxes.

In celebration of winter and our unfortunate shippin’ accident, the Department o' Treasury has wrapped December’s Gold Box with festive items designed to celebrate the season. These berry merry boxes are stuffed full of goodies like Merry Macaws, Merry Molluscs, Polar Pandas, and Winter Waddlers.

Find Gold Boxes at yer island bank until December 17 at 3 PM PDT. Get the full list o' plunder right here.

A Seal with yer Seal

Given their propensity to get distracted by something shiny, pirates aren’t always known fer being the wisest foe. Own a subscription that runs through December, or make a purchase of $9.99 or more this month to receive a Owl Statue to give ye advice. Bonus, these feathery things are also a hoot at any gathering.

Don’t cry owl, ye can still earn those shinies even if ye don’t listen to advice. Earn the December Seal o'Piracy by completin’ 5 different duty puzzle sessions. Keep in mind, navy sessions do not count fer this seal.

I Will Follow Ye

Let’s face it, we can’t all be a leader. Own a subscription that runs through November, or make a purchase of $9.99 or more this month to receive a Sheep Plushie to be yer newest follower. Now, even if ye don’t captain yer own ship, ye can still have a crew to help ye dig up treasure.

Wraithly Raiders Return

The curtain between the mortal seas and the spectral abyss has once again been torn wide open. Barnabas' spectral powers have cursed all pirates into a ghostly state! Only a horde of wicked Brigands and Barbarians who have made a pact with the pale Brigand King have been spared, and even now they race to do his unearthly bidding! Arise ye spectral swashbucklers, and defeat these turncoats to the mortal realm and shatter Barnabas' hold over the corporeal seas to restore the divide between the planes!

The pirates of the oceans have been divided into several spectral teams, each charged with dispelling Barnabas' fiendish curse. For the duration of the competition, each individual Brigand or Barbarian you defeat will give your team credit for weakening Barnabas' curse. Thus, the larger the ship you take on your hunt, the more good you'll do! Not only that, but if you happen to lose the melee, you'll still receive credit for any Brigands/Barbarians you were able to defeat!

The Wraithly Raiders competition will stretch through Halloween until Friday, November 2nd, so get to your boats and save the seas: there's trophies in it for you! Full details can be found here.

Ye may have identified the rattling, but that’s not the only thing that will bring a chill to a pirate’s heart. Rather than sit around waiting fer it to find ye, we suggest ye go lookin’ fer trouble. Earn the October Seal o'Piracy by compleatin’ 2 actions to add to yer explorer reputation.
