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The main deck is covered in wild flowered vines and thick overgrowth, and even the ship's wheel has been replaced by a giant sun flower.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