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The main deck is covered in wild flowered vines and thick overgrowth, and even the ship's wheel has been replaced by a giant sun flower.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

Yule Love this Festive Sloop!

Daring pirates from the smuggler's guild recently 'acquired' designs for a new sloop. Rumored to have come from secret facilities in the icy northern realm of the Toymakers, the Yuletide Class Sloop is based on the design by player Yoditay of Emerald. The ship is available to order from yer local shipyard for a limited time!

Could this be the ship sailed by the Dread Pirate Santa to deliver gifts to good pirate lads n' lasses? Let's step aboard and take a quick look!

On the main deck ye'll find a treasure trove of goodies awaiting delivery. Merry cannons are found on the ship to protect the bounty from thieves and scoundrels. While he's known as a jolly pirate, the Dread Pirate Santa is sure to give no quarter to anyone who'd stop his seasonal deliveries.

Below deck, there's a space where workers put together last minute gifts and apply those finishing touches. It appears the Toymakers keep their workshops carefully guarded behind a wall of snow. Only those who know the secret steps can enter this space of ribbons and bows.

See where the Dread Pirate Santa gathers with his hearties in the main cabin. The feast is set and the stocking are hung by the chimney with care. Let's warm by the fire and reminisce of yer best pirate exploits of 2014. Somewhere on the ships, there's rumored to be a direct doorway to the north pole. If ye find it, let us know what's on the other side!

Set a course for a jolly time and visit yer local shipyard today! The Yuletide Class Sloop will be available through January 1, 2015.
