Unhallowed Halls!

Posted in The Spyglass

Vampirates Land!

Ye hear that whisperin' on the wind? Thar be rumors of shadowy forces amassed on distant shores protectin' centuries’ worth of plunder. These forces aren’t alone. Word has it they are commanded by a regal creature who was first of her Vampirate kind. She’s the mother to all her minions and won’t take kindly to ye landing on her shores.

We sent a ship full of pirates to gather intelligence and investigate these rumors. Unfortunately, only those who made it to the first rowboat off the island survived. While they returned safely, they didn’t have a lot of useful information. While babbling incoherently, they seem to plead with anyone willing to listen, “Take ye hammers, hammer ‘em back. Shadowy hordes! She floats among ‘em!”

Sure ye can avoid these creatures 'n hideout on yer islands, or ye can pick up a cutlass ‘n pillage some o' thar legendary riches. Be wary and build those defenses. These aren’t yer average vampires lookin’ fer spoils, ‘tis their Sanctum yer entering. Ye didn’t reckon they’d make it easy on ye?

Land if ye dare, but be wary, losin' bites.

Trick-ARR-Treat Time

Trick-ARR-Treat Ye Scallywags!

Trick-ARR-Treat

Are ye ready fer Halloween, mates? To get ye in practice, we have a fine competition prepared for ye: Starting October 22nd, Pirates will be invited to participate in the great Trick ARRR! Treat event of 2021. That's right: "Arr!" We're pirates, after all.

And how do ye win this competition: Sail with yer crew and retrieve candy from the unwilling hands of brigands! A boon fer the Pirate with a sweet tooth!

Along with the competition, pirates might find hordes of monsters washing up on shore at an alarming rate. If yer scared, don’t worry, ye can hide behind one of the masks available at the palace shop.

Back In Black

The scallywags in the Dread Ringer crew have also updated the Black Box. These now include both skeletal familiars, a horde of black pets, Sanguine Amulets, Vampire Reliquaries; and some new furniture items. It’s unclear how the skeletal familiars were created, but we suspect something went dreadfully wrong during the hatching process. Creep on over to your local Black Market to engage in some dubious dealings!

Dress to Impress

When yer out Trick-ARR-Treatin’, don’t just wear any o’ thing; ye need to look the part! Lucky for ye, we have some costumes available. Check out the Palace Shoppe to get yerself properly attired for the run of the mill treat hunt, or a Vampirate gala!
