Have ye earned a boatload of treasure on yer many adventures? Do ye consider yerself a gentleman of fortune? If so, the limited edition Crimson Class Sloop will be a perfect addition to yer armada of vessels!

Oh, and did we mention it be red? It be mighty red...
to bring your doom and prepare for war...
by moonlit curse and cultist roar..
we dance and chant and into this volcano pour...
snakes and hate and blood and gore...
And from the world's black belly flows our enlightened and grim lore!
The Enlightened Ones gather together followers for Vargas the Mad from far and wide. Their madness is spreading faster than normal, and larger numbers of cultists are being reported on nearby cursed isles. Ye can’t be sure why, but may it be related to the recent full moon? Whispers from brave adventurers say the followers take longer to regroup between fights, allowing pirates a bit more time to plunder Vargas the Mad’s riches!
Look lively or ye may be lost to the noxious fog!
Go bananas with the Banana Mystery Box! Open boxes to find banana colored furniture, clothing, trinkets, ships and chroma.

The Smuggler’s Guild is circulating information among members about a new series of Black Boxes. We’ve managed to get our hands on the information and decoded it for ye pirates. The skeletal monkey has gone into hiding, but Series 5 will have a new black raven familiar. For those nights when ye need to blend into the darkness, black seals, pigs and rabbits have been added to the box.
Ye’ll also find new Black Box trinkets that can be held in portraits. Be sure to take yer trinkets to a Trading Post, as there are whispers of a new familiar scurrying in from the jungle. Purchase a Spider Box artifact and ye'll have a creepy-crawly all yer own!

We recently held a contest on the game forums for players to submit designs for limited edition ships. This ship is inspired by the winning entry from Coconaut of Cerulean. Let out yer best Tarzan yell as ye swing through the Jungle Class Sloop.
Be the king of yer own jungle! Enjoy the steamy surroundings as ye play hide and seek with the multitude of monkeys on the ship. Due to the sweltering conditions of the jungle, the cannons look a bit rusty, but they’ll sink the enemy ships just as well as shiny ones!
Wow, that is a big spider! Wouldn’t want to find that crawling on yer shoulder! There is an abundance of wildlife on this ship. Monkeys and parrots in the trees, and a pair of big cats roam the ship. Don’t be bothered by the gators swimming in the pools - these critters don’t venture beyond the water.
After a full day of pillaging, enjoy the comfort of a hammock as ye listen to the soothing sounds of the jungle.
Grab a vine and swing to yer nearest shipyard to order yer Jungle Class Sloop today!
