Trick-ARR-Treat Time

Trick-ARR-Treat Ye Scallywags!


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!

Sinister Happenings Are Upon Ye

Vampirates and other monster frays aren’t the only thing stalking the shadows on the oceans lookin’ fer libations.

Unlike these guys, ye don’t have all eternity to just sit around. Visit yer local shipyard today, because the Skelly Class War Brig is only available this month

The Stakes Are Higher


Hark! Thar be somethin’ wicked sailin’ the seas. Somethin’ wit' a mighty thirst 'n a cravin’ fer a good swordfight! Vampirates are not used to being so quickly pushed back from the islands they haunt, and have called in reinforcements by sea! Be aware that these aren’t yer average vampires, thar the abomination created when a vampire turns a seafarin' pirate. Ye didn’t reckon they’d stick to land did ye?

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. Don’t turn yer back on these creatures o’ the night fer one moment. Thar nah t' be trusted and seem to be workin' together at someone's behest.

Follow the Vampiric Reliquary to find these creatures of the night, and steal their plunder fer yerself. Be wary, losin’ bites.

A Mystery Box o’ Chocolates


Our crew of chocolate arrrrtisans are back! They’ve put together a fall-themed box of assorted chocolates usin’ only the highest quality cocoa confections.

Indulge in chocolate delights like Cocoa Parrots with Hats, Autumn Monkeys with Hats, Autumn Foxes, and Chocolate Marshmallow Unicorns, ships, furniture, clothing, chromas, 'n more!

We won’t sugarcoat it, it’s hot out there at sea puttin’ our boxes o’ chocolate at risk. Don’t ye worry mates, we’ve made sure to keep them cool so the treats don’t melt into a puddle.

The Innformant

We get it. Bein’ on a ship fer days on end can make a pirate Crabby. Take a break on land and earn the September Seal o'Piracy by compleatin’ 4 different crafting sessions.

As most pirates know, some of the best intel ye can get is from the innformant. Unfortunately it’s not always easy to find this Old Salt in order to hear about potential plunder. Don’t worry, we have a solution. Own a subscription that runs through September, or make a purchase of $9.99 or more this month to receive an Old Salt Plushie to whisper in yer ear.

Plumdering Plum


More fruity delights are headin’ yer way. If ye didn’t get yer fill in July, ye can presently procure plenty of plum perishables. The Department o' Treasury has created a Gold Box that’s ripe fer the pickin’. This box is jam-packed and filled with fruity plumder like Beach Plum Plum Parrots, Toucans, Poochs, and Sasquatches!

Let’s face it. Not every pirate is lookin’ to plumge into purple *cough* Nemesis *cough*. If this is the case fer ye, rest assured that ye may also find something with a bit o’ shine. Ye can collect gold trinkets, furniture, pets, tan familiars, and gold chromas!

Find Gold Boxes at yer island bank until August 16 at 3 PM PDT. Get the full list o' goods right here.

Flame of Might!

Let’s face it mates, it’s hot out on the seas. Why not subcontract yer pillaging out to the All-Consuming Flame? Own a subscription that runs through August, or make a purchase of $9.99 or more this month to receive an Azarbad the Great Plushie to lead yer fleet.

While yer hidin’ from the heat, ye might as well find yerself a game or two in the inn. Complete 10 parlor games to earn the August Seal o'Piracy!

While Azarbad may prefer other ships, there’s really nothin’ like a well appointed war brig. The oceans' shipwrights have managed to learn enough about the militant Imperials' vessels now to be able to replicate their War Brigs to exact specifications! The Imperial Class War Brig can be ordered from your local shipyard, but act quickly; it won't be around fer long.
