New Ship and Items for March!

Avast! Take a well-deserved break from your Spring cleaning and go green with all the new Puzzle Pirates items available in March!

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.

5 gold nuggets on the sloop make it too expensive for ordinary pirates to buy. I would love to have an emerald class sloop but it costs more then a war frig and i can't afford that! 10k more for specialness, fine, 100k more..... /me faints and falls over.

They could use yellow enamel or yellow paint and it would look just as good.

I'm not happy.

Set aside the price of the ship, it's a fairly insensitive ship. While there are lovely knots all over the ship the Triquetra is displayed on the hatch of the ship associating it with Celtic ties and/or neopaganism... Then add the fact that it's got other Celtic knots all over it and has a drinking game? Come on.... I hope no self-respecting pirate of Irish decent purchases this ship. Not all of us Irish folks are drunks and this ship seems to push that ethnic stereotype right out there in front. I will not be supporting it.

The triquetra was appropriated by neopaganism, they certainly didn't invent it. The ship is pretty obviously a parody of St. Patrick's Day celebrations, which is in this country an excuse to get drunk and wear green, and not a parody of Irish culture. It'll be the price that keeps me from purchasing this vessel, definitely not my lack of humor over my heritage.

Malacats back.
Please stop calling things limited editions. They plain are not.
If you wont make limited editions what everyone understands the name to mean, then change the name to rarely available items. At least then we all know where we stand with them.

Perfectly easy to create different real limited editions, as you have been over the year. Why was this not some new cat. a blue one or something. Re-issuing limited editions really is not on.

Annoyed.

Lol they're "limited" edition, not only available once edition. The limited edition items have been put to a time limit. Thus they are limited edition XD. Sweet ship btw, wish I could buy one! Too poor tho :P

You try that on with any real world goods then! Limited edition means there will not be any more made either by a numbered edition limit, or a one off purchase time period. You make any more after that and you have undermined your reputation and market. I have worked on real goods as limited editions, the means to make more are usually destroyed when the edition is done.

If they mean something else other than a real limited edition they should call it something else. Or play by the rules, possibly even description of goods laws.

And Puzzle Pirates is the real world, right?

Yes it is. The makers are subject to all the same commercial law and trade descriptions. They are selling a product. They advertise some items as limited editions, they then create more after the limit is over. I suspect that breaks some law where they are based.

Well I really like this ship but, unlike the 5-6 Frost class sloops I bought, these at 70k + 40 doubloons are a bit out of my price range. I might buy one on Sage just to have one but I won't get more than that. I was willing to sink the doubloons but I just don't have that kind of poe reserve.

Such a good looking boat, but so dang expensive! The cheapest I saw was 90-something thousand! For a SLOOP! But anyway, a really nice looking boat with awesome decoration. I wish I could afford one but due to my misfortunes at Pirate Poker, my PoE count is currently extremely low =\

Eew, hair product spam. I wonder if it's a person, or if computers have learned to do... math. Um.

They're lovely, and I would absolutely buy one, had I the money. And for what it's worth, I know of PLENTY of real-life 'Limited Edition' products that are made available for sale every so often. I've always understood the term to mean "not always available." (Or "only available in limited quantities.") Sometimes that means "never again," and sometimes that means "you can only buy this on February the 13th."

The English language is a messy, evolving thing. That's half the fun of it.

Sounds like someone is upset because they bought a bunch previously and hoped to sell at some outrageous price.. I'm glad the Cat has comeback!

Wahmbulance, If you mean my posts No it is not. I have some limited edition pets, never more than one of any type, and I am fed up with them probably breaking the law by reissuing them.

It is untrue and a deceit to call them limited editions, plain simple fact.

Mind you as we can see, by the spam adverts they do not care about, or even look at anything anyone says here! Which shows a disdain for their users unfortunately.

Lado.

Try a dictionary, Limited edition means limited by number, or a more modern version of only available for one time period. The essential component is that there is an end to availability, otherwise you may not describe it as a limited edition.

try reading before diving into the dictionary, that's just what lado said:

That most likely this kind of sloop will come back again in the future and therefore in the old sence of the word "limited" it is not: it is not limited by a number or by a time limit (since it returns next year)
In the evolved sence of the word Limited it means you wont be able to get it whenever you want only a certain time a year (like a summer holiday ;D)

Sorry you can not invent a new meaning to the meaning of limited edition that is in direct opposition to its true one! Your idea is limited means not limited by anything!

Being above board and honest is not difficult!

Limited editions should never be available a second time, perfectly obviously.

IF they want to offer items continuously but infrequently then new ones need describing accurately. Something like 'rarely' available.

It is not much to ask for honesty!
