Sail the Emerald Seas!
Introducing March 2010's Limited Edition ship: the Emerald Class Sloop! Like our previous Limited Edition vessels, the Emerald Class Sloop has a unique deck plan that sets it apart from both the standard and Frost Class Sloop! As always, we look to roving reporter Quicksilver for some candid images of the new ship...
Here you can see the green paint job and some of the fancy fittings that are aboard the vessel. In addition, if you look at the hatch down into the ship's belly, you'll notice some of the custom knot-work carvings that can be found throughout the ship!
Here's a nice picture of the sloop's interior. Note the fancy knot-work carvings on the walls! In addition to being wonderfully styled, the walls are laden with all sorts of neat items: custom banners, lamps, and even a tap from which you and your hearties can access the Drinking puzzle!*
The Emerald Class Sloop can be ordered right now from your local Shipyard, but it'll only be available for purchase until the end of March, so don't miss out!
Month of the Mala-cat!
It's back! The cuddliest export this side of Saltstraum Rock is once again gracing the Palace Shoppe for a limited time! It'll be heading back into the Malachite wilds at 3 PM PST on March 22nd, so be sure to adopt yours soon!
More to Come!
We have even more excitement in store for you this March, so keep an eye on the Notice Board and this blog! See you in game!
*The Emerald Class Sloop's Drinking puzzle access is not available on the Crimson ocean.
In what nautical scientists everywhere are calling a sign that this February will be the most awesome February ever, both Valentine's Day and Lunar New Year fall on the same date in 2010: February 14th! To celebrate, Puzzle Pirates is rolling out a grand assortment of fantastic seasonal content, including trinkets, new furniture, new portrait backgrounds and some other surprises!
Previously only available as part of the Trading Post, pirates everywhere can now lay their hands on a Paper Lantern or Guardian Lion of their own from their local furnisher!
Tired of wearing your heart on your sleeve? Attach it to the wall of your ship or house instead with the new Heart Tapestry and Crossed Heart furni items, available for purchase from any furnisher!
Year of the Tiger!
What better way to celebrate the coming of the Year of the Tiger than with the Gold Cat's esteemed older brother: the Golden Tiger!
He's anxiously waiting to ring in the new year, so head to the Palace Shoppe and adopt him today!
Trinkets and Backgrounds!
Returning this year to the Palace Shoppe are a wide variety of awesome gift trinkets, and portrait easels everywhere have received a slew of both returning and new Valentine's and Lunar New Year portrait backgrounds! Be sure to take advantage of these before they're gone!
Cupid Class War Brig!
What would the start of the month be without a new Limited Edition ship? This month brings us the Cupid Class War Brig, the premier vessel for pillaging with your favorite hearties! Our correspondent Quicksilver once again brings us an exclusive tour of the new ship...
Here is the new stern castle, complete with very comfortable seating for the helmsman. This replaces the 'middle deck' found on the regular War Brig.
This is a picture of the new captain's cabin, with its fancy embellishments and comfy canopy bed. As an added bonus, the bed doubles as a navigation table! We're pretty sure the charts are stored under the pillows.
Finally, what Valentine's themed ship would be complete without a hot tub? It's perfect for relaxing after a hard day's pillage, or a particularly strenuous night of dancing in the ballroom in the ship's hold!
The Cupid Class War Brig is only around for a limited time, so check out your local shipyard today!
Only for February!There's a lot of excitement planned for Puzzle Pirates in February, but make sure you don't miss out on any of these new seasonal items! They won't be available for purchase after Monday, February 22nd, so grab some doubloons, place your order in-game, and have a happy Valentine's Day and a great Lunar New Year!

Flooded with information on heretofore uncharted coves and atolls filled with danger, the Piratical Geographic Society is seeking adventurous pirates who are interested in some mutually beneficial exchanges. In order to facilitate this process, they have recently completed their initial blueprints for the construction of Explorers' Halls! These plush headquarters stock a variety of Expedition Charts that pirates can use to flush out unseen hazards across the ocean and make a pretty penny while doing so!
Rise of the Empire
The mainland, where most pirates originally made their home before the freedom of the archipelagos called them away, seemed like a world away amidst the daily plundering of Brigand Kings and the sunken Atlanteans. However, that was not to remain forever.
Recent scouting reports from the Explorers' Hall indicate that Imperials from the continental mainland have begun constructing forts and landing weapons and Marine troops on atolls throughout the ocean. They cannot possibly be intending to simply drop by for tea, so it is up to the pirates of the ocean to drive these tyrants off before they force freebooters everywhere to submit to the iron fist of Imperial authority!
Pirates looking to do their part need look no further than the Explorers' Hall on their favorite island. The Society would be more than happy to sell you some very valuable information on nearby Imperial Outposts!
Those looking for a silver lining to the appearance of the Empire in these waters should rejoice! Brigands attacking Imperial shipping have managed to obtain the plans and supplies necessary for a couple items of interest which are now available for purchase from your local Tailor and Furnisher.
First off, a new set of bronze ship upgrades, specially altered from Imperial design to be a bit more palatable to your average pirate.
There's a shiny new helm...
...and cannons in three different sizes!
Next, this fantastic figurehead of Poseidon, the design of which was taken from the favored ship of an Imperial Navy Admiral.
Those upgrades are permanent additions to the recipe lists of the oceans' shoppes, so enjoy them! Above and beyond the ship upgrades, however, is a small supply of Cockades that were taken from an Imperial shipment bound for these waters. Lucky for all of us, they're the key to fashioning this particularly stylish hat!
What should have been atop the head of an Imperial Colonel can now be yours from your local Tailor for a limited time only! The supply of Cockades will run out at the end of November, so make sure you snap one of these up before they're gone!
Exciting new bonus promotions tailored to particular pirates are now available! If ye're one of the lucky ones this week, ye could earn yerself an awesome Sloop or a Mounted Tigershark just for buying a package of doubloons or a subscription!
New promotional offers will sail ashore every week! To make sure ye always be getting yer share of the deals, be an active participant on yer ocean: run pillages and trips to sea monster zones, play lots of puzzles and make sure ye spend yer loot on new clothes, boats and other piratey swag!
Ye could have a special bonus waiting right now, so head on over here to see what's up, and be sure to check for more great deals each week by pressing the Buy Doubloons! or Subscribe! buttons on your Ye panel!
At long last, pirates across the great oceans can finally begin personalizing their favorite ships with new shipboard gear! To help you prepare to turn your old and busted sloop into a completely tricked-out piracy machine, let's take a closer look at the bevy of items now available for purchase from your local Furnisher.
First off, new cannons! The new Gilded-style cannon is available in all three sizes, and looks as great on a sloop as it does on a war frigate!
Next is the new Gilded Helm. Don't worry: one size fits all!
And we've saved the best for last: new figureheads! Narrow ships, like the sloop, get the new Gryphon figurehead...
...while larger ships can utilize the new Sea Serpent prow!
This next one should be familiar to anyone who previously owned a large ship, but it's now available for placement on ships as small as a cutter: the mermaid figurehead!
And for those of you who want to keep your skills sharp while you're sailing around in your newly gilded ship, we've also added a variety of new practice dummy items! There is a Swordfighting and Rumble dummy for each gender, and they can be set to mimic an existing pirate's skills and appearance in battle! Spar with a copy of your friend, or beat up on your enemies in the comfort of your captain's cabin! We won't tell anyone.
What else could we possibly have planned for this brave new era of ship customization? Only time will tell! For now, be sure to grab some doubloons and hit your nearest Furnisher to take advantage of all this goodness today!
Time to celebrate the dog days of Summer!
There's no better way to beat the heat than kicking back with a huge pile of cold, hard doubloons! That's why we're now giving away 15% more doubloons with every purchase $9.95 or greater! Act quickly, though: when the end of August rolls around, the Doubloon Blast will disappear into the sunset, so don't miss out!
This promotion is over now, folks, but if you're interested, you can still buy a shiny doubloon package right over here.
