Sealpocalypse Now: A'uk's Revenge

An Imperial excavation of an abandoned and forlorn village in the frozen north has unleashed an ancient curse upon the seas! Now Imperials and pirate are transformed and drawn into the battle between the Legions of A'uk and the ancient warrior Pengmunks.

The Sealperials work to free King A'uk from his prison, so he can unleash his fury across the world. The spirits of the warrior Pengmonks have awoken and transformed pirates into Swashbuckling Penguins to protect the Seal of the Dread Seal King A'uk's prision. Raid Sealperial Outposts to reclaim artefacts and ensure A'uk does not escape!

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 Tablets, Crystal Seals and Penguin Idols. Full details can be found here.

The competition ends on Monday, January 4 at 3 PM PST.

Plunder Sweet Candy!

Frighteningly cute!

Tis again the bewitched season of Halloween, which means time to plunder candy! Lucky pirates may be awarded Ghastly Trinkets from Sea Monster Lairs and Brigand King loot. Beware! There's an increase in monster activity in Sea Monster Lairs! Don't let that slow down yer adventure. More monsters means more loot to plunder!

Take yer pile o’ sweets over to the Trading Post. Exchange ghastly trinkets for monster dolls! New this year, ye'll be frightened by the out of this world cuteness of the Space Oddity, Sea Creature and Cat Lass. If ye have old candy from previous years, ye'll need to sort it out. Ghastly trinkets from last year can be traded for the current dolls, but ye olde Trick or Trinket candies can only be used on older dolls!

Once ye have yer fill of sweetened treats and expanded yer monster doll collection, use the sugar rush to beat back the hordes of skellies, zombies and werewolves that assail the land!

The oceans run red, and the candy madness last until November 3, 2015!
