Visitors to the islands are often amazed at the tranquility of the Cursed Isles; With their rustic villages and unexplored jungles, these islands be the perfect place for yer Valentine's Day escape. On the other hand, if yer not the 'relaxing and lazing about' kind o' pirate, there be plenty o' activities and exciting things to do on yer Cursed Isles holiday!

Transport: Travel to this amazing holiday destination via express sloop voyage. Marvel at the magical green fog (but try not to inhale it).

Activities: Immerse yerself in the tribal cultist culture! Swordfight and rumble to stay alive! Listen to the chants and rhymes of the local poets! Marvel at the creativity of local mask artisans!

Images from Puzzle Pirates were used to make the color palette image. Quid Pro Clothes was used to create the models.

Piratey Attire

Lonely wench looking for that special someone? Lad can't decide what to get his lass? Ye will most definitely need a new outfit in Valentine's Day fashions! But what in the seven seas is a Valentine's Day outfit? We knew that only Malorie would have our answers. "This year is going to be a little different than before, but Mal will save you from your fashion woes," she said.

Color Palette
Color is very important to an outfit as color is a symbol of the holiday of love. This year, with the addition of lovely magenta and rose, ye will have quite a selection of colors.

Colors, in order from left to right: Red, Magenta, Pink, Rose, White

"All of these colors are ravishing, but don't get carried away," says Malorie. Here is her list of do's and dont's:

-DO wear red/red
-DON'T wear white/white
-DO wear magenta/rose (lovely combo)
-DON'T pair a color on the list with a color that isn't on the list

The garments are the most important part of the outfit, of course, so ye need to be very careful when picking out yer attire. Visit a tailor shoppe in yer archipelago, or visit some tailoring stalls that have a rack so ye can try the attire on before buying it.

There are several choices for a wench to wear, from fancy to shabby. The classic corset and gown combo, paired with a romantic laurel and fancy boots, will make her feel like a million PoE. For a daring twist, try a midriff blouse with scarf instead of a corset.

Pictured here be the lass wearing a laurel, corset, gown, and fancy boots.

Would she rather not wear a skirt? A tabard, flare pants, wide-brimmed hat, and fancy boots will suit her well. Or maybe she'd like a scarf, midriff blouse with scarf, stripy knickers, and fancy boots. Fancy boots are quite classy, and a lass will want a pair for most of her outfits.

The lass is wearing a scarf, midriff blouse with scarf, stripy knickers, and fancy boots.

For a lad who enjoys his lass dressed in a more simple way, he can buy her a feathered hat, shirt with belt, short dress bottom, and boots.

This Valentine's Day, a lad can look dashing if he chooses one of the following fashions.

There is often heated discussion between wenches about the belt with bracers top. Some argue that it is both attractive and useful, but others claim it is unsightly, even repulsive. If ye like it, wear it with a captain's hat, loose pants with sash, and fancy boots.

A lad clothed in a captain's hat, belt with bracers, loose pants with sash, and fancy boots.

If ye don't fancy that top, another dressing will be right. To make a bold statement, a lad could wear a bandana, striped shirt, kilt, and boots with gaiters. For a formal look, he may try a musketeer hat, captain's jacket, pants, and fancy boots.

This lad is wearing a musketeer hat, captain's jacket, pants, and fancy boots.

Ye know that million PoE feeling ye get when ye deliver a new outfit from the tailor? When ye get yer new Valentine's Day dressings, ye will feel even more happy and confident than usual! Confidence is just what ye need to find that special someone. Ye will be noticed not by yer attire but by yer lovely personality-although fashionable clothing never hurt anyone!

In the heart, true and dear love arouses,
Roses and chocolates delight the senses,
Songs, melodies cause a tingle to the ears,
Doves with ribbons coo as the wind gently blows.

When the winter's coldest chill comes,
Lovers snuggle close together, warming each other,
The gentleman gives his affection to the one lady true to his heart,
A lady of sweetness and inner beauty.

Even the toughest of men and women, adventurers at heart,
On this day must show their heart's desires,
Affection and love,
As it is Valentine's Day.

Ceary on all oceans!

Puzzle Pirates - Valentines Addition
For The Broken Hearted.

Heraar be some subscribers who be sending us poems for the broken hearted. But try make the best of Valentines Day. Don't be sad.

Forget Him

Forget his name.
Forget his face.
Forget his kiss and warm embrace.
Forget the love that you once knew.
Remeber now, there's someone new.
Forget the love that you once shared.
Forget the fact that he once cared.
Forget the time you spent together.
Remember now, it's gone forever.
Forget him when he played your song.
Forget you cried the whole night long.
Forget how close you once were.
Remember now, he's chosen her.
Forget his gentle, teasing way.
Forget you saw him the other day.
Forget the things he used to do.
Remember now, she loves him too.
Forget the times when he walked by.
Forget the times he held you tight.
Forget the times he made you cry.
Remember how he never mentioned why?
Forget him or you never will.
Because you know you love him...still...

Writing Love

Everyone writes a love poem
To show what they know
It's all a bunch of foam
To envy and show

Love in indescribable
When you feel so wonderful inside
You're balancing on a cable
And your worries have all died

Lose your mind to feeling
Feel your body soar
Your body's now just reeling
You wont be ignored anymore

Feel his hand on your arm
His breath on your skin
Chuck out that old good-luck charm
Lose yourself to sin

Night after your drowsy
Can't find your prince
That prince was rather lousy
'So much for his promises' you wince

So your lover was a rat
What else is new?
At least you can find a bat
And beat him black and blue.

Just Friends

You're so close, our fingers brush.
I'm craving more; it's not enough.
I curl my hands into hard fists
And wonder if there's more to this.

My mind tells me the painful truth:
There's you. There's me. Not me and you.
But here's my heart, feeding me lies,
And telling me it's worth a try.

Sometimes, I look up and you're there.
It's like you know me, like you care.
Sometimes, I catch you smiling, beaming.
I pinch myself; I must be dreaming.

These thoughts of you -- they never end.
"Just friends," I have to say. "Just friends."
When people point out how I feel,
I brush it off like it's not real.

I might be asking for too much.
But this friendship -- it's not enough.
Here's the truth, from start to end:
I don't want to be just friends.

All entries were writen by me except 1.

Aquarius - January 20th - February 18th

Love is in the air! Your stubborn trait pays off and that first mate you've been looking for will find they are unable to resist your charms. The sea is your domain this month as the stars align to light your way. Scurvy sea dogs will fall to the might of your cannons and booty will rain down from the sky. Now is the time to show the world the colour of your sails and the blade of your sword. A friend reveals their true nature and may present you with pink orchids this valentines day.

Pisces - February 19th - March 20th

Neptune still shows you favour this month Pisces and while you may not have the golden glory reserved for Aquarians you still know how to throw a good punch. Be wary of goals left undone as they may lead to your downfall. A good brawl with a Capricorn will reap much booty. In love, a shared mug of rum will prove to be beneficial. A large bunch of daisies will find favour with the gods on valentines day.

Aries - March 21st - April 19th

As the first of the fire signs you show the wrath of your anger to many skellies and zombies this month. The blockade boards will fear you and when caution is also applied many islands will be yours. Be careful not to let your mouth run away with you too much or you may find yourself with a blade buried in your gut. In love, your heart will follow someone aboard a longship. Carry with you a teddy bear and give away a single blue rose to bring you luck on valentines day.

Taurus - April 20th - May 20th

Your thoughtful nature will reap amazing benefits this month and people will seek out your insight for many a battle. Your occasionally resentful side will rear its ugly head so beware as it may land you in a cutter with no cannons. Generosities to your friends prove to be rewarding but watch out for a Libra who has a secret agenda. In love, an uncommon map will point the way to your true mate. A single purple orchid will look good on you this valentines day.

Gemini - May 21st - June 20th

As usual you're restless this month Gemini. Do not despair though, a good dose of rum and you'll be right as rain. Others may try to take advantage of your inquisitive nature so caution is advised. Your ability to multitask will award you with a many a new trophy this month and if you hone your abilities you may find yourself the owner of a rare prize. In love, a pirate you have known for a while reveals long hidden feelings so why not buy them a ring and some chocolates on valentines day.

Cancer - June 22nd - July 22nd

As the Karkinos scuttles towards the sand so shall ye. A new island awaits ye this month and with it, new unseen riches. Your shrewd nature will win ye a lot of golden booty and help you to beat many foes. Combine your home-loving and imaginative nature to create a beautiful house that will instil awe in your fellow pirates. In love, get set to have your heart burst with joy. A good box of chocolates will show the one you love how you feel on valentines day.

Leo - July 23rd - August 22nd

Now is not the time for you to be bossy and if you continue then you may face the cannons of a lot of ships. Your dramatic side will win out this month and many of your fellow pirates may not like it. Lay low for now Leo and ye may live to fight another day. Using your creativity instead of your sword and ye could open new avenues to be explored. In love, a partnership with an Aries may lead you to an everlasting companion. Blue roses and chocolates will really help you express yourself on valentines day.

Virgo - August 23rd - September 22nd

Unlike most pirates you actually use soap and bathe which will keep you fit for the fight up ahead. While others will fall over from scurvy you will prevail and conquer. As a perfectionist you may find the clutter of others to be a bore this month but knowing you, they won't be cluttered for long. In love, A Taurus captures your heart with their large wardrobe. Pink roses and a new pink outfit are your tickets to happiness this valentines day.

Libra - September 23rd - October 23rd

Sociable and easy going you will be the centre of attention at parties. Friends know they can trust you and you'll make a lot of new friends this month. As always, someone will try to take advantage, but a quick insta from your sword will put things right. Poe is short right now so a firm and saying no to that pink hat may be the best course of action. A good pillage should replenish your purse if you use that logical mind of yours. In love, another Libra will make you smile with flirty jokes. This valentines day should bring wonderful flowers from others.

Scorpio - October 24th - November 22nd

Now is the time to seek revenge on all who have hurt you Scorpio. Ready your ships and fill your cannons for this month you will scare even the waves. Atlantis is an excellent place for you to be right now and partnering up with an Aries will double your might. Your controlling nature may cause a few arguments though so make sure your blade is sharp and your bottle is broken just right. In love, your passionate side will create sparks with a Taurus. Treat your loved ones to some chocolates on valentines day and enjoy their smiles.

Sagittarius - November 23rd - December 21st

Freedom shall be yours as this is a time for you to cast off the shackles and go your own way. Your honesty will get you far but your blind optimism may pull you back a bit. Use your adventurous side this month to take to the seas and conquer Atlantis. If you apply your intelligence and devotion to whatever you choose to do then a rare prize may find its way to you. Do not forget your roots Sagittarius try buying that old salt a drink. In love, a pirate who shares your love of blockading is the one for you. Maroon roses are just what you will need on valentines day to feel loved.

Capricorn - December 22nd - January 19th

Do not be too hard on yourself Capricorn. You have a lot more going for you then you realise. Others can see just how honest and hard-working you really are. If you apply these good traits to crafting then prizes await you. A good forage every now and then wouldn't go amiss too. If you feel like helping others then a greeter pillage is just what you need to do. You love to teach others and you are a very good teacher. Treat yourself and buy that new outfit, gold and maroon will look good on you. In love, another earth sign is a good match for you and you will find one on the docks. Some maroon orchids will really match that new outit on valentines day.

Thankyou to Wokbok for allowing me use of his pirate in the picture.

Product review

As in every edition we're going to review a product. This week we're going to do that on a special way. We're going to do a test to see whether the product works or not. This weekly's review will be a product fitting in the theme of Valentine's day: Rose goddess perfume.
This product promises female pirates to attract the best and richest male pirates.
But is this true? Or is it just nothing but lies? And does it really attract all of them in a range of 20 metres? We searched for a random female pirate to find out.

The test:

What is a better place to search for some rich and great pirates than the estates of Admiral island? We found one random female pirate, gave her the perfume and asked her to to spray some perfume around. Now, all we had to do was waiting for some male pirates to arrive and see what happens.

Only four minutes after our testing person sprayed the perfume two male pirates arrived. One atlantis addict followed by his karkinos wearing his blue with atlantean clothes, and the other, a poker addict wearing his gold with navy clothes, and being followed by his lucky charm: a golden cat. This is going to be the moment of truth. Does the product work as promised? We're about to find out!

Yes, it's true! Only 2 minutes after they arrived, they smelled the perfume, and got immediately attracted to the female pirate with the perfume. Both pirates even followed her to the Villas of Admiral island. The atlantis addict asked her to go along with him on an atlantis journey, while the poker addict asked her to play a friendly game of poker with him. Rumors now go around that our testing person has been spotted multiple times on several atlantis journeys and 20K-200K poker tables!

How to get this fantastic product?

That's very easy. All you need is a ship and a sword or a bludgeon. Set sail and make sure you intercept a Brigand King called "The Widow Queen". Stab her a few times with your sword, or give her some punches in the face with your bludgeon and then, maybe with some luck you'll receive your very own Rose Goddess Perfume. Perfect to give as a gift for Valentine if you're a male to your girlfriend (But watch out that she doesn't get an other one.)
Or even better to keep as a female!


Our testing panel has given this product a rating of **** stars, which means that this is an awesome product!! If you want to give your valentine a great gift, you should definitely get her an own rose goddess perfume.


The rose goddess perfume definitely is a good gift to give to your valentine.
For this review, we have put all the advantages and disadvantages underneath.

-It really works!
-You won't smell anymore
-It hasn't been tested on animals

- For the males: Watch your girlfriend!
- Not only the rich and best pirates will be attracted, greenies will also be attracted by the smell of the perfume.

Edit 1: The screen shots didn't work, and I had to fix some of my grammar
Edit 2: Some question marks sneaked in, and I fixed the quality of the third screen shot
Edit 3: I fixed some last things, let's hope that this was my final edit

Re: [Entry thread] PUZZLE PIRATES WEEKLY Valentine's edition.
Attract, Hunter Ocean.
As mentioned in Post.

Love Can Happen

The dock was empty that evening. Even as the sun degraded into the smallest light and appeared to sink gracefully into the sea. The breeze blew by and caught his hair. His hair danced gracefully in the evening breeze. He sat in a lazed position staring into the distant space slightly above the sea as night began to fall. As he stared he grinned because he knew. He knew that out there, somewhere, was someone who cared. Cared for him. Accepted him for who he was. Loved him, even.
He sighed as he stared and sluggishly rose to his feet. And wandered down in the dark. Alone.

He crossed the green grass which was camoflauged by the darkness of the night. He crossed the grass. Alone. He opened his door and entered into the light bursting out into the night alone. He lay on the sofa and watched T.v. Alone. He sighed and wished there was someone with him. To hold. To cuddle.

He stared into space and daydreamed of this fantasy untill he dozed off. He had many dreams of the perfect girl. She had shoulder length light brown hair danced in his hands as he stroked it. He almost felt the feeling in his hands. Her hazel eyes stared at him full of mystery. Who was she?

He reached out to hug her and as he closed his arms around her she disappeared and he woke on his sofa. Alone. He wandered around the city square and was pushed around by a crowd of people pushing this way and that, desperate to reach their destination. They were like huge tractors plpughing their way through. Thats when he caught a glimpse of her passing by.

He picked up speed towards her. He shoved and pushed and ploughed his way through untill he became within reach of her. He laid his hand on her shoulder and she turned. She smiled at him and she smiled back as if she somehow already knew him. And as if they did, they held hands immediately and walked down together. They were both united and walked away into the distance. Together forever in spirit and soul.

The End.
Attract on Hunter.

Wierd incounter

I see him walking over
The wind in his hair

I see him walking over
He doesn't even care

I see him walking over
With a smile on his face

I see him walking over
Now near where i'm placed

I see her walking over
Happily skipping along

I see her walking over
singing to herself a song

I see her walking over
coming near this way

I see her walking over
Shes here now what do i say?

I see her sitting next to him
Not noticing i'm here

I see her sitting next to him
whispering in his ear

I see him kissing her
painfully dying inside

I see her kissing him
Wanting to commit suicide

I don't realise i'm running
towards him and her

I don't realise i'm screaming
at him and her

I don't realise i'm pushing
the poor girl off the docks

I don't realise i'm hitting
the boy because i'm in shock

I know that i am sprinting
away from what i've just done

I know that i am laughing
because i found that quite fun

My Loyal Pirate Friend
Love is such a strong word,
Yet commonly is it heard,
To describe a passion for someone,
Or a friendship that will never be undone.

You my loyal pirate friend,
My faith in you will never end.
For countless times have you declined,
Trading money to break our strong bind.

I see kinds just like me,
Parrots, Octopi and fellow monkeys.
They all look at us with an envious glare,
Jealous of the bond that we two share.

You my loyal Pirate friend,
My faith in you will never end.
Before I met you I was so alone,
But at last I have found my perfect home.

Who said dog was mans best mate?
My owner traded theirs for pieces of eight.
Yet here I still stay, unsold,
You say you?ll never trade me for any gold.

You my loyal Pirate friend,
My faith in you will never end.
I thank you for everything you have done,
For the joy, adventure and all the fun.

As I sit in my tree waiting for you to appear,
Like a tiger waiting for prey to draw near,
It feels like time has almost slowed down,
For its feels that way when you are not around.

You my loyal Pirate friend,
My faith in you will never end.
For a break in our connection is impossible,
And... oh barnacles, nothing good rhymes with impossible.

Re: [Entry thread] PUZZLE PIRATES WEEKLY Valentine's edition.
Valentine shanties reviewed

Wind O'er Wavelets (My Hearte's Rest)
Ah, where would the romantic tar, misty-eyes on the glitterin horizon, be without the melodies of Anya? Probably winnin more silver with firmer sword thrusts in melee, but ye can't tell 'em... The symphonic, seductive (syrupy, soporific) diva is back with another broodin epic. She delivers an auld-fashioned lament, in pathos-laden dialect, hung on a hauntingly atmospheric tune, with all her hallmarked moody tension. This may delight broad beamed oakum-fiddlin old maids and earnest youths clad in baggy breeches alike, but by cuddlin listeners up to its familiar bosom, it's chartin no new courses.

Queen Beth's Boys
The Brineland Navy Pipe Band
It's not clear how this martial swill got off the over-swabbed decks of Brineland's finest, but here it is - a ploddin shanty meant to raise the patriotic spirit of those parted from loved ones by Neptune's call. The tune is traditional, though in an irksome key, but the worst is in the lyrics. Even if Queen Beth were to spill a tsunami of compassion for the companions of her fleet's servants, it's hardly cause to gleefully break yer back and risk yer neck under her colours. Their author, fortunately hidden by the anonymity of uniform, must either have an imagination shallower than a punt's keel or a contempt for blue-jackets that out-does Admiral Finius. Flush this sop out with the bilge, say I!

Ballad of the Salty Dog
Long John Bone-Swinger
If ye don't know the scandalous yarns that made Bone-Swinger infamous amongst the ladies who work in taverns, ask yer parents. Gossip hounds for those periodicals read below deck may not be stalkin the sottish entertainer so closely these days, but he's hardly captain of the abstinence crew yet. This is a folk ditty, narratin the misadventures of the singer's trouser-familiar. It has some blues gravel, but it's mostly just simply blue. The verses jerk around an uninspirin in-out tempo, interrupted by a chorus of predictably coarse chanted slogans. One for old, unenlightened fans only.

Hoist Sail fer yer Mammy
Ye're most likely bored of swabbies gushin about Neusis, but there's no denyin their tunes have been breakin both records and barriers. Here's a riotous jig that hits a fine-spiced ballad full broadside. It's catchy, but has an emotional depth measurable in fathoms. The ambiguity of the song's subject - mother, wife or homeland - only deepens the pity for the returning sailor. But that doesn't even matter when the tune dances over the scale like snake on a skillet to a rhythm that pulls you and yer dancin partner along like a gig behind a galleon, to leave ye both flush-cheeked and similin. This is right on the money, and bound for renown.

As Valentines approaches fast,
All the pirates dont want to be last,
As they all gather round the burning fire,
They all find a partner to hire,

As they exchange their gifts,
Sitting on the cliffs,
The woman's eyes widen with happiness,
As the man's eyes close in sadness,

As valentines is a day of love & compassion,
The woman is greeted by the latest fashion,
As the light is dieing out,
They look all about,
And see the romantic sunset.
Sophine on Hunter. :).

Rock Bottom
I watch the sun slowly set,
Sitting lonely on my deck,
I never should have done that bet,
For it wasn’t only my neck.

For I’ve hit rough ground,
But I still love you.

My saviour

Looking in his eyes, oh so blue.
What do I say what do I do?
Shall I smile, and let him walk?
Or should I take the risk, and talk?

Now he has his girl by his side,
I feel like it, like I've died.
I hope she walks off, I don't want to see,
What will happen, what will be.

Now she's gone, we're all alone.
Shall I move in, when he's off the phone?
A hug, a kiss, or something more.
I'm biting my nails, right to the core.

Now he's staring, say something quick,
Oh my darling, my darling Nick.
Why can't I tell him, why won't it come out,
I'm going to do it, just let it shout.

He's closing the door, I need to act!
I love him so, that's a fact.
I'm moving in, I thought it through,
That's it, that's what I'm going to do.

Now it's over, he's staring, so blank,
Did he think of me, as a skank?
He's crying now, what have I done?
I done it wrong, I'm going to run.

Maybe some boy, will love me one day,
I thought of this, as I lay.
Hard ground, oh well, that's life,
My back in pain, I've been stabbed by a knife.

Wait, a boy, come for me?
Oh how much I'm filled with glee!
Now few years on, we're engaged, nearly wed,
Now I'm glad I'm not dead.

A lesson on life, never give up,
Don't just run home, and cuddle to pup.
You'll find him, some day you you will,
You'll know, when you get that chill.
"The mystery of who I am will never be revealed!" on Hunter Ocean.

Re: [Entry thread] PUZZLE PIRATES WEEKLY Valentine's edition.
Story -
A tale of love on the high seas.

She stood silently at the docks and stared at the peaceful ocean. “Is there something better out there? “She thought but then sighed. “Probably not”.
“Bella! Get to work!” Miss Bright was calling at her. “Too bad her name doesn‘t match her personality,” Thought Bella to herself and walked to Miss Bright with a bucket of water.
“Good god child, would you have me wait all day for a glass of water?
“Sorry, Miss Bright,” Said Bella. She poured the water into a delicate glass and handed it to Miss Bright.
At that moment, Athelda, Miss Bright’s only daughter in a family with 6 sons, burst through the door, thoroughly out of breath.
“Mama,” she said. “You must come quickly! Zombies have been sighted sailing their cursed sloops to attack us and steal our treasures!”
Gathering her many skirts in her hands, Miss Bright sprinted as fast as her portly figure would allow her. She slammed into the front door, pushed it open and continues down to the docks, With Bella and Athelda close on her heels.
Sure enough, a large crowd had gathered around the docks of Acapulco Island to watch the zombies approach. Men were organising themselves into teams to fight the zombies and keep them from plundering the island. The ships came closer every minute of the time that passed. Sooner then anyone would have thought, the ships started shooting at the docks. Everyone rushed in panic. Bella lost the sight of Miss Bright and Athelda. She got frightened and ran to the woods before the Zombies would invade the docks. She ran as her fast as her skinny feet could carry her. All of the sudden she hit the ground. She rubbed her head and peered up. “I apologise, are you alright? “A stranger said with a worried sounding voice. “I‘ve been better, but thank you“. She answered and stood up. “Sorry about that, my name is Marcus. “ He said and smiled a quirky, crooked smile at her. “Bella. “ She answered. “You’re alone? “ He asked suspiciously. Bella wasn‘t sure if she could trust this charming stranger. “Depends. “. He smiled. “Sorry for being so mysterious and curious, we better keep going before we meet a zombie, lets go! “. She stood frozen for a while. “Should I trust him? “. Came up in her mind. There was no time for a tea break, so she went for it and ran after him into the woods...
They stopped to catch their breath. Bella looked at Marcus. He was handsome with brown hair that went in his eyes and a smile that could break even the most cold hearted person. His eyes caught most of her attention though. Those deep blue eyes made her feel safe and not as alone like she had felt quite a lot when she had worked for Miss Bright.
“Run Bella! RUN! “She heard Marcus shout loudly. She started running but slipped on a stone and fell to the ground. The last thing she heard was Marcus shouting her name.
A mouse ran over the floor. Bella rubbed her head and sighed. “What is this place? “ She thought and coughed from the bad smell. She looked around and saw another girl lying on the floor. Crying. “Excuse me, but are you okay? “ Bella whispered. The girl looked up and obviously didn‘t know if the question was pointed at her. “Who, me? “ She said with a hicking voice. “They took my sister away from me, and I was supposed to take care of her“. She said and started crying again. Bella crawled to her and hugged her. “Why don‘t I cry over losing Miss Bright and Athelda? “ Bella thought to herself while she dried the girl’s tears away gently. “What‘s your name honey? “ Bella asked, hoping to stop her crying. “My name is Rebecca, but everyone call me Becky“Answered Becky with a soft voice. She was breathing slower then before and fell asleep in Bella‘s arms. That‘s when Bella figured.. Where was Marcus? She didn‘t have much time to think cause all of the sudden a Zombie opened the door and rushed in. Bella had no time to scream; the Zombie took her arm and dragged her out in the open air...
Bella was blinded by the sun. She covered her eyes with her hands and noticed they were all red of pure blood. “I must have fallen pretty badly“She thought and dropped her hands. The vessel was a frightening side. The black sails blew in the wind and Bella was captured for a moment. All of the sudden someone grabbed her hand. Bella shocked and was about to wave her hand at the person when she came to her senses. “MARCUS! “ She almost shouted and hugged him relived. “I thought I had lost you. “ She said with sobbing sounds. Marcus smiled and hugged her deeply.
Those days they stayed on the vessel they slaved. They cooked, cleaned and worked every hour of the day and then they were behind bars below vessel. They ate old bread and drank dirty water. “And I complained working for Miss Bright“Bella thought and sighed deeply.
She hadn’t seen Becky for weeks; the girl worked in a different part of the ship. She worked slaved at a different part of the vessel then Bella and Marcus did. Bella was worried about her. She looked scared and sad.
Finally, after weeks of slavery an island was in sight. Bella stared at the island and was captured for a moment and she felt hopeful until Marcus grabbed her arm and whispered, “We have to get out of here Bella, If we step a foot on that island, we‘ll never get off it. “. Bella answered with a worried tone “But where? “. Marcus had no time to answer. A shoot from another ship hit the vessel and they ran below deck. “This is our chance Bella, we have to swim to the other ship when possible, this battle could stand for hours“. Bella looked at him suspiciously and said, “How do you know all this? “. Marcus froze. Then he looked at her with his capturing blue eyes and said with a bitter voice, “My father is a prisoner there... “.
They ran to the upper deck and hid. “I have to find Becky! “ Said Bella. “Go find her but be careful“. Bella found Becky hiding under the stairs to the highest deck with her head in her lap. “Hurry Becky, we‘re getting out of here, now! “ Said Bella and pulled Becky from under the stairs. “We have to find Helen, My sister! “ Cried Becky and hit her face in her palms. They started looking for Helen; she was hiding in the row boat. They got to her and pulled her out. Becky hugged her tight and took her hand.
They ran to where Marcus had been waiting for them and together they jumped off the ship.
Bella struggled to keep floating and noticed that Becky was sinking and took her waist and helped her up to the surface. Suddenly, a bang echoed across the water and Bella felt a sharp pain in her foot. She started sinking herself. Marcus grabbed her and pulled her to the other ship. They climbed up the rope ladder on the side of the ship.
Captain Cleaver says, "Avast! It seems we ha'e a couple o' stowaways!" Marcus gives Cleaver his secret supply of money as barter for safe passage back to Acapulco Island. Cleaver smiles prickly and says, "Arr, welcome aboard the Charlotte mates! “
A few weeks went by like a storm to Bella. She felt so happy and confident about the future. She smiled sweetly while she stared at the sea. All of the sudden she felt two hands over her eyes and someone said "Guess who? “ She smiled and turned around. But before she could say anything she felt his lips to hers and she felt endless happiness inside. Then she whispered in his ear, "I love you". He smiled his crooked smile and said, "I‘ve always loved you".
"Land ahoy! “ Bella turned around and saw her dear home island. She looked at Marcus and he gave her one of his cheekiest smiles.
She closed her eyes to smell the fresh salty air and leant her head on his chest. What an adventure.
The end.

Beautiful Dreamer

Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me,
Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee;
Sounds of the rude world heard in the day,
loved by the moonlight have all passed away!

Beautiful dreamer, queen of my song,
List while I woo thee with soft melody;
Gone are the cares of life's busy throng.

Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!

Beautiful dreamer, out on the sea,
Mermaids are chaunting the wild lorelie;
Over the streamlet vapors are borne,
Waiting to fade at the bright coming morn.

Beautiful dreamer, beam on my heart,
then as the morn on the streamlet and sea;
then will all clouds of sorrow depart,

Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!

hope ye love it

Prize order as shown

Oh, my little pirate and thee peg leg.
My sword wishes t'were an ebbulient rose
When I see you my mind boils like an egg
I think of thee as the heavy wind blows
Have you always been so loyal and kind?
When I look at you I see my heart's mirror
My old left eye wishes it weren't blind
My trusty parrot jumps when you're near.
Thou art the treasure and I am the chest
Bottles of rum for the lady in white
And as you all know, forever we're blessed
We'll have some fun on this wonderous night
From this day on we'll no longer be two
All for one and one for all; I love you.

A Pirate Love Poem
If you cut sea's waves with scissors
You will find only water
And the relics of fhoenician ship
Where I once sat with many slaves.
The whip that struck my back was made in the shape of your hand,
And the voice that commanded row! row! was sharp as an ax
I wanted Love to wave like the skull on the black flag
Of a pirate ship.
Something quick, something torn right out of my body.~Henry Israeli

Rushing valentines
I rush store to store looking for the perfect gift
For the one I love
I go through aisle by aisle
Eliminating pile by pile
Gifts that won't express my love
Flowers? Chocolates? Too cliche
I need something to express my love
I find nothing
What do I do??
I can't come home empty-handed on valentines day
I walk in the house worried about our love
Then she says the words
I'll never forget
You brought the best gift of all
Coming home on this valentines day

Astrology tips for successful Valentine's Day

Even a novice navigator knows that there are five main stars shining on the firmament above our heads. Each of the star is a part of constellation named after one of the five familiars. But those stars are not merely the navigation tools! For scholars it is clear that each of the star have a great power over destiny and personality of the pirate born under it. We have asked one of the ocean wide authority on that arcane knowledge - dr Merethiffo - to give our readers a few Valentine's Day tips about each of the sign.

- Ippolito (Assigned element: wood)
Pirate born under the orange star is outgoing and expansive. He enjoys flocks of hearties and is always coming up with new ideas. Pillages run by Ippolito have a tendency to change into great sun deck parties. He likes to explore uncharted waters and sunken cities just for shear excitement and fun of it - it is boredom that he fears most. His idealistic attitude and natural curiosity makes him a bit irresponsible but nevertheless charming folk.

Perfect love match: Ippolito would make an ideal and active couple with Octopus. Both of them are driven by extreme curiosity and enjoy traveling and exploring new places (without paying much attention to consequences).

Date of dreams: A week cruise on a Love Boat, packed with a lot of breath-taking attractions like Triketos rides, whirlwind surfing and crow nest bungee jumps.

Valentine's Day gift ideas: A deed for some funny renamed ship, painted in vivid colors. With such vessel his pillages/parties would be even more unforgettable.

- Parrot (Assigned element: fire)
Pirate born under the red star is passionate, creative and loves a good laugh. The flame of inspiration that is lighting up his soul makes him a perfect material for poet, muse and lover to remember. Equally skillful in dealing with more mundane form of fire - Parrot usually place high in all culinary contest. As a social pirate of taste he can be often spotted showing of new stylish outfit at the docks.

Perfect love match: Parrot and Ippolito makes a vivacious couple. They both enjoy social life and value passion over duty.

Date of dreams: Probably Parrot will invite you for a romantic dinner at his place. He sees himself as a culinary maestro so don't forget to praise every dish and dessert that will be served. Some enthusiastic comments about house decor are encouraged too.

Valentine's Day gift ideas: A new fancy outfit in bright and trendy colors or a new forum avatar made by one of those popular avatar artist is a good idea for a Parrot's gift. He will also appreciate a love ballade so you may try to write one if you feel skilled enough.

- Viper (Assigned element: earth)
Pirate born under the yellow star is reliable and hard-working. Driven by service and duty to others he wants to be part of a big, happy crew. He adores giving advices and fits for excellent executive officers and greeters as well as shoppe managers and merchants. Patient, caring and warm hearted - he will easily keep the jobbers happy on board while loading GF and clearly explain the subtleties of pirates world even to the most slow-witted greenies.

Perfect love match: Viper is the perfect support for Parrot's bursts of inspiration. They both long for harmony and beauty all around them. After all it's all about being happy, isn't it?

Date of dreams: A romantic dinner at the uninhabitable island. Only you and your beloved one... and maybe some foraging.

Valentine's Day gift ideas:
If you really wants to make your beloved Viper happy you should spend your poe on the finest wedding ring and engage (and believe me - grappling hook won't be needed this time).

- Monkey (Assigned element: metal)
Pirate born under the white star is ambitious and self-reliant. Rising to the top of crew hierarchy being one of his top priorities. This unyielding fighter delights deathly duels, sinking sea battles and elite pillages. Wide known for his rigidity and composure he is also one of the most efficient man at arms. But as much as he enjoys clash of steel he loves bang of gold coins. That's why he can be often spotted at poker tables or furnishing his luxury manor with the most fancy and exotic goods.

Perfect love match: As a born leader Monkey would enjoy having reliable Viper by her side. After all, every battle navigator needs a competent XO to take care of those pesky jobbers.

Date of dreams: Dinner for two in the most elite and elegant inn in the archipelago. Exotic food and the finest rum is a must. Some friendly duel before the dinner would be welcomed too.

Valentine's Day gift ideas: New sword is an option but you can try something more extraordinary - heart-shaped crate full of cannonballs not only will call forth Valentine Day romantic mood but also will come handy during next sinking flotilla.

- Octopus (Assigned element: water)
Pirate born under the blue star wants to know everything there is to know about anything. The more arcane and obscure this knowledge would be the better. This pirate of dark heart and gloomy soul is secretive and deceptive, but he can act in truly charming way if needed. Vargas the Wise has been one of the most famous pirates born under the blue star. The line between wisdom and madness is truly a thin one.

Perfect love match: There will be natural chemistry between Octopus and Monkey. Both of them are ambitious and will combine knowledge and guile with tenacity and fortune to achieve their goals (be it taking over the island, capturing the ancient riches of Atlantis or world domination).

Date of dreams: A soiree on the Cursed Island with a lot of romantic scenery, like spooky indigo candles, Halloween furniture and cultists' love chants all around.

Valentine's Day gift ideas: Books. Lot of them. You can try one of those new bestsellers like "My First Thrall. User Manual" or go for something more classic like "Skellies - facts and myths". If you feel romantic try "Secret Diary of Dr Frillypants" written in Ancient Atlantean.
My YPP astrology concept is loosely based on Chinese idea of five elements.

Valentine is about being together with your lover or loved ones, but you have to have one.
What if you dont and valentine is almost here?
So the adverisement is my answer.

Entry type: poem (/poetry, whatever...)

I wrote a sonnet :D

Sonnet for my valentine

As a winter's breeze, you appeared,
just as gentle, as subtle and lovely as I feared.
I couldn't resist, nor can I now
I felt lonely and hopeless, but happy somehow.

As a little child, I made up my mind,
you could, no, had to be, a Goddess of some kind.
My pain could be healed and you were the cure,
of that I was certain and my faith would endure.

But even through this, mortal you were,
with faults and problems, horror and anxiety.
Angrily I accepted and believed in your mortality.

My faith still stands, of that I'm sure,
fragile though strong, it still holds on.
My pain can be healed, and you're the cure.

for as far as i've got any possibility of winning (my calculations came onto 0% of chance...), i'd like the parrot :D (as would anyone) but other than that, i haven't got preferences towards the prices...

I hope i didn't forget any information i had to give... but i probably did :P

Lonely Souls
A love story with poetic interjections

NB: The 2nd poem, 2nd and 3rd lines should be read straight through, rather than with a gap.


The waning sun shot weakly through patches of trees and she walked. Her auburn hair was dotted with pinpricks of light where the sun had cleared the leafy canopy overhead. The dress she wore - black on magenta, dazzling to the eye - floated around her like clouds, distorting her image slightly. Her purposeful stride through the trees was disconcerting; such an angel should surely float.

Her face, carefully set in the neutral position, gave nothing away. As she picked her way easily through the twigs and roots that scattered the floor like discarded matchsticks, her expression never shifted, even when she caught one of her slender purple slippers on an impediment. She looked down to see the item which dared to slow her, then bent and emerged with shocking agility, holding a magnificent curved saber and wiping dirt from the sparkling blade, which glimmered ominously in the pinkish setting sun. Her eyebrows stayed level, her mouth calm as she tucked it into her belt, next to a jewelled falchion.

Finally she cleared the treeline, and blinked slightly - a major facial change - to adjust her eyes from the near darkness of the forest to the sunset. The sea lapped around her ankles like an impatient dog as she stood, surveying the sea with morose eyes, seeing not the stunning view, but the memories of this place. The first kiss, the long walks...the final goodbye...

Is that a tear, brewing in your eye?
Enlighten me, why do you cry?
The only thing to induce such tears
Is a shattered heart; the worst of fears.
Is this the case? Why is it so?
This is new to me; I wouldn't know.
The only advice I can give
Is to get on out there, and live!
Turn a corner, wipe the slate,
Leave it in the hands of fate!

'Never mind the sea, Marie, although it be so beautiful. It pales next to ye, as would anything.'

She didn't even jump at the sudden voice.

'Always one for words, eh, Karl?'

'Aye, ye'd know.' A warm hand took her firmly by the shoulders and spun her round.

Karl's face was barely visible underneath the dark hooded cloak he was wearing, shrouded over him much like the shadows which were gathering behind him as the sun crept ever lower in the sky.

'Got another eyepatch? A starfish? Perhaps just an ugly scar?'

Even on the crude features she could see in the enchanting half-light, there was a spasm of confusion, flitting across his face much like a wet painbrush across a blank canvas.

'What do ye mean?' His hand, still on her shoulder, tightened minutely.

'The cloak, Karl. I've seen yer face. And whilst you're not exactly a masterpiece, I wouldn't be ashamed.'

'Who says I'm ashamed? Privacy is like gold ore these days; everyone wants it, not many have it. The cloak is a mere aid.'

'So long I've waited to see yer face again. So many years, while ye served yer debts to that dratted captain Macpherson, and his cheating at those infernal cards. Why, now, can't I see you?' She was silent for a moment, then: 'Is this all part of the moment? The suspense, before I see your face once more?'

He said nothing. Seconds passed. Electric currents seemed to be infiltrating the air like a noxious gas, passing between the two like unspoken words.

And then he slowly put his hood back.

Marie sighed outwards, and a beatific smile spread across her face; it lit up in much the way this beach would when the butterscotch-yellow sun dawned again.

Surveying this, it makes me glad,
To see such love; expulsion of the sad-
Ness, sorrow, frowning face,
Life was at a crawling pace,
Before this night, down by the sea,
Life was empty for Marie,
But now there's a reason for life,
A reason for the end of the monotonous strife,
As joyful as a singing choir,
His face, of which she would never tire.

He took her hand gently in his own warm one, and as the sun dipped completely below the horizon, leaned in.
The stars glimmered in the velvet sky above their kiss, and, when he broke off, he drew a bunch of flowers from his greatcoat, in much the way she'd known him to unsheath a deadly scimitar.

He handed her the white lillies, and smiled.

'Early for once in me life, eh?'

Marie was too choked to speak properly, but he understood.

'Happy Valentine's Day, my sweet.'

Hand in hand, they walked to the end of the beach and then disappeared in the direction of their secluded townhouse.

Lonely souls, reunited at last.

Valentine’s Day Warning!
Rash of Rats

Rats! That’s right Rodentis Hugemicius! It has come to our attention that there has been a rash of rats converging on what are to be the future presents for the upcoming celebrations of Valentine’s Day. Observations from all over the ocean relay that rats are taking advantage of unsecured gifts of candy and chocolate. Hoards, converging together have been seen gnawing in unison at packages of favor. Eye witness reports from honorable sailors to old salts convey the plight.
We all know the cute and furry four-legged scamps to be nothing but the loyalist of companions. Why my own “Adoration” has accompanied me on many of a vesseled jaunt. But is there a conspiracy afoot? Can it be that behind their unassuming big black eyes, whilst they watch us with a seemingly sense of serenity, that there lies in wait a cunningness of contempt and betrayal. Waiting with sharpened claw for the very minute we turn our backs to them.
Scourge of humanity or fuzzly wuzzly friends of man? Only time will tell.

Like a finger pointing to the moon! If you look at the finger, you miss all that heavenly glory!

Saltyjane of Cobalt

Entry type: Dear Jane (Advice Column)

Dear Jane,
I joined the Navy to see my known
I've seen it, now how do I get out?

Dear Admiral,
Click the "To home" button.
Then find yourself a nice lady
pirate to help you navigate
through the sea of basic
game functions.

Dear Jane,
My new gold cat is mean and
short tempered. She scratches
my mates, shreds the sails and
hisses at my Captain. What is
wrong with her?

Dear Purrfectly,
Since it's so late in the month,
I would say she is going
through Mental Paws.

Dear Jane,
What can I do about all the
nudity, sex, violence and fowl
language in my Townhouse?

Dear Eggstra,
Only place one OM Egg in
each room. Never allow the eggs
to have alcohol and don't
feed after midnight!

Dear Jane,
My boyfriend, "Vargas" is a lying
scallywag. . . .
He tells me he loves me, but he
has lied our entire relationship.
He is a good provider and has
given me many trinkets...but,
he sneaks off to Atlantis every
time my back is turned. I think
he has a serious Ippolito addiction.
Every time he gets caught, he
denies it all. Then he admits that
he was wrong and begs me to for-
give him. This has been going on for
so long, everyone on Cobalt knows
he is a liar. I don't know what to do.

Dear Gretchen,
You should dump him. Now that you
are a feared BK in your own right,
you don't need him. Take an island,
or two if they are small; go to Atlantis
and get several Ippolitos. Breed them
and then sell them to Vargas. After all,
we both know "Hell hath no fury like a
Goldfang scorned!"

Dear Jane,
My boyfriend and I will celebrate our
third Valentine's Day this year. I
would like to give him something nice
for Valentine's Day. What do you think
he would like?

Dear Holding,
Never mind what he would like; give
him a calendar. There is only one
Valentine's Day per year.

Prize Preference:
Flapper Package
Love Boat Package
Heart Home Package

Re: [Entry thread] PUZZLE PIRATES WEEKLY Valentine's edition.
Sevre from Malachite
Feature Article

Lovedoctor Sevre's game of Love

Hello there, many of you know me as Sevre or Serafax,well today I'm going to be known as The Lovedoctor! The piratical lovedoctor of course. As Valentine's Day fast approaches it seems that a lot of pirates are lonely,well for scientific purposes and also to help you out a little, we've taken 3 of Malachite's finest single pirate bachelors. And in today's article we shall pit them against gruelling tasks to see who will win the Game of Love. Of course you can learn from their mistakes and failures and (possibly) successes. So lets meet the contestants who will be known as Subject A,B and C.

Subject A

Subject A is a foraging fanatic who loves to post on the forums and use his many alts to express himself. He has a tendency to talk to himself,but don't we all? All of his alts look the same and he enjoys long pointless trips around the ocean on a boat with them,planking jobbers,and timing himself as he races between league points. "You know that I can get from Duat to Zuyua Mist in under 12 minutes?" added Subject A. When we asked him about his use of alts he had this to say. " I don't have a problem"- Subject A
" Yes you do!"- Subject A's first alt.
" Quiet mortals!"- Alt two
" Look I got a gold ore!"-Alt three
" Always trying to be the centre of attention!" - Alt four.

At this point we stopped recording the conversation and moved onto better things. Subject A,not one,but many hearts of gold.

Subject B

Subject B is an all round good puzzler with decent stats,lots of activity and a head full of hair. His only problem is the fact that he's an albino, what is wrong with that you say? Well he feels intimidated by all the well-tanned blondes on the oceans and this has led him to suffer severe deppression,yet he's brushed off his shoulders and arrived with some positive thoughts. "Every time I see a well-tanned blonde I have a nervous breakdown, so I decided to find love on Malachite,the loneliest most depressing ocean there is!" Isn't he a good sport? Little does he know about Malachite's annual well-tanned blondes convention.

Subject C

Subject C is the most eccentric of all our lovers, he is a black Scottish pirate with accusations of beastility . He denies these accusations and is ready to love anyone in his vicinity! However does he have what it takes to put his lovin' in YOUR oven? Only the Lovedoctor can decide.THat's me by the way. Anyway, he's also a poker addict (Lots of poe there) and has his own rowhouse with his pet sheep Berty. Although he would like to mention that it is Berty's house. " It be an open marriage though!"

The first task:

So now that we've met our subjects it's time for the first task! Now the most important part is not your personality or skill with puzzles, it's the clothes you wear! So we've decided to pimp these test subjects Quid Pro clothes style! Well Subject A had the following to say about his trendy new outfit, " Hey I can't afford to give all my alts expensive outfits,besides anyone who is after my poe is obviously a gold digger! I like gold diggers :-)"

Subject B went for all white, why? Well lets find out. "It's camouflage! No one will notice me! Therefore I cannot fail,I can't succeed but atleast I won't fail." Unfortunately B misunderstood the concept of camouflage that is he has to blend in with his enviroment!

Subject C went for the classic Black/rose look for his outfit, "This'll attract Nessie herself!" roared the pirate on his new look.

So everyone has some sense of style, It's now time to put these guys into the dating circuit,and what better dating circuit than Malachites very own Saltstraum Rock inn? I was originally planning to take screenshots of this hilarious event but then I realised that the interference of the other players would taint the game of love. So as the three marched into the Inn we told them to look cool and see how many people would notice them.
The following are chat logs from:

The Second Task!

Sevre says " Ok everyone, here's the plan,stay in this spot and the person who manages to get a date the fastest wins.You have one hour!"
Subject A says " Wait,what happens if we all fail the task?"
Sevre says "The third task will be even more difficult then!"
Subject A's first alt " What is the third task?"
Sevre says " I haven't gotten that far yet! Now get back on your main!"
Subject A's second alt says " Never!"
Subject B says " Now you're sure there aren't any well tanned blondes here?"
Sevre says " Stop worrying about them and get on with acting cool! Where's Subject C?"
Subject C says " Och,the lasses in hear look like last nights haggis!"
Sevre says " That is a very bad accent"

At this point the Lovedoctor left and the challenge began.

Subject C says " Ok men,we're strong we can do this!"
Subject B says " I feel sick D="
Subject A says " Suck it in! Lets get some ale to calm our nerves"
Subject A's second alt gets the ale.
Subject C says" It's ok I'll get the bill"
Subject C says " Billions of blue blistering barnacles?! You bought all your alts ale?"
Subject A says " Don't worry,I'll do the next round of drinks"

At this point the well-tanned blondes,hereby known as WTBs walk in.

Subject B doesn't feel good.
Subject A's third alt says " Crikey! He's no albino,he's greener than a greeter pillage!"
Subject A's fourth alt says " Pirates don't say "crikey""
Subject A's fifth alt says " Foraging alts do"
Subject A says " Shut up guys,we have to get him a seat before he cramps our style!"

Entire collection of WTBs say " O hai guys!"
WTB no.1 says " He doesn't look good
WTB no.2 says " Look good he doesn't!"
Subject C is confuzzled.
Subject C says " WTB you might be but ye ain't no sheep!"

The Bartender realises that our subjects cannot afford to pay for their drinks.

Bartender says " Avast! Ye scurvy landlubbers are getting the plank for your thieving ways!"
Subject B begins to projectile vomit.
Subject A's 1st alt says " Scarper lads!"

At this point Subject B is passed out on the floor in a pool of vomit, the WTBs are screaming, The Bartender has taken Subject C down into his cellar and began to beat him senseless,and Subject A and his many alts have ran off.

This concludes the 2nd task.

The Final Task

At this point in our Game of Love,we've seen a lot of action,not the good action but still action nonetheless. As our three brave warriors turn up for their final challenge they look truly battered. Subject C is covered in bruises from last nights little bartender and the thief style tryst whereas Subject A can't seem to find his alts. Subject B feels a lot better though, He even got to meet some WTBs,and he actually talked to them! Not vomit,talk! " I can't believe it,I actually managed to talk to a girl!" screeched our fine bachelor. See people? Albinism can be attractive. Because of his success, Subject B has been declared the winner! But every game needs a loser,will it be Subject A or C? To find out,our final test will involve a lot of skill in the art of seduction.......and duty puzzling. Subject A and Subject C must escort Subject B to the WTB Ball. This involves getting him dressed, sailing him to his destination on a pimped out sloop,and dancing with him at the Ball. Both of them look astounded at their task,but unless they want to be tarred and feathered,they better do it!

As the three boarded their sloop and sailed off into the horizon,we immediately started to see the comic clumsiness that got us this far.

Subject C says " Arr,you charted it wrong that's not the way!"
Subject B says " That is the map Sevre gave us!"
Subject A says " Shut up and bilge you two,I'm legendary in Navigation and sails,we'll be there in the blink of an eye!
Subject C says " Yeah,a blind mans eye!"
Subject A has booched navigation.
Subject A has ordered the ship to turn about.
Subject A says " Damn you C,look what you did!"
Subject C says " I was bilging not naving,that was your fault!"
Subject B says " I'm a barbie girl,in a barbie world.............."
Subject A's 2nd alt says " What's a barbie girl?"
Subject A's 3rd alt says " I believe its a Barbarian Queen?"
Subject A's 4th alt says " There are Barb queens?"
Subject A says " Get back to sails you lot!"
Subject C says " What is that pink WF in the horizon doing?"
Ye have been engaged by the WTB mothership!

Subject B says " O hai gurlz!"
Subject C says " What in the name of Nessie is going on!?!"
Subject A says " Would you quit it with the Scottish accent you're not even Scottish are you?"
Subject C says " Aye,I'm actually Canadian........"

The WF began drilling holes in the side of the sloop with its cannonballs!

Subject A says " What are they doing! This is insane,we're supposed to be meeting them at the ball!
At that moment they heard the girly cackles of the WTBs as they loaded more and more cannonballs.
Subject A says " Alright men, It's time to sink the blonde trash! C, get guns, B take bilge.
The sloop manouevered itself to the side of the WF with amazing skill. It then popped its unholy cannonballs into the side of the WF.
The crew watched in horror as the cannonballs failed to breach the WF and they were left to face the broadsides.

Subject A,B and C shout " Scu............!!"

The Conclusion
Two weeks later our brave men washed up ashore, we tracked them down for some final thoughts

Subject A says " Love fails"
Subject B says "Love hurts"
Subject C says " Canadians can't love!"

Good try guys, good try!

To finish off I'll answer some reader questions:

Disclaimer: These individuals have allowed me to print their name.

Striderrs tells ye, "I can't get it up :(. What should I do? D:"

Well Striderrs,the best way to get your self esteem up is to do group exercises such as pillages and remember how great you are. You were talking about self esteem right?

Saviour tells ye, "Do you have a map ?"

Depends to where Saviour.

Saviour tells ye, "Because im lost in your eyes"
Saviour tells ye, "oh yea"
Saviour tells ye, "booyah"


Thanks for reading!

Humerous article
14th February 2009: Today, I went to watch 'eye-patched date' on Sage.
Captain Black introduced a mighty fine wench, with a roar from the scallywag crew. Her name be Neptune, and she be given the chance to ask three young strapping mateys about questions to find out who she be most suited to(they be hidden behind a wall to hide their identity).
Pirate A - Jacob of Admiral. Interests - crabs, rumbling.
Pirate B - Redbeard of Scrimshaw. Interests - running fine pillages.
Pirate C - Blackbeard of Kent. Interests - women, watching the swordfighting.
Neptune asked the fine pirates what would be their perfect date.
Pirate A - Arrg, we'd go for some chow; get some crab. Then we could do a bit of rumbling and eat more crab. Don't worry, I'll go easy on ye as it's your first time.
(The crew cheers)
Pirate B - If you were me wench, I'd show you how a really pilly is run. I'd shower ye in riches if you'd be me shark bait.
(The crew cheers even louder)
Pirate C - Well, me perfect date be the 15th August, it's me birthday ye see.
(The crew look confused - Pirate C blushes)
Captain Black then runs back on deck and urges the wench to continue questioning while she goes to the apothecaire to buy some hair control tonic to tame her firey red locks.
Neptune asked her final question; 'what would you do if a triketos tried to sink me sloop?'
Pirate A - No need worry, wench, I'd throw crab at it. Can never have enough crab!
Pirate B - Arrrr, I've fought of a lot of them daring creatures in me time, they be no match for me! I got meself a golden triketos reward for killing so many of them! I'd shout 'All Hands Hoay!' and that'd be it.
Pirate C - Urr, what be a triketos?
Captain black returned with her firey red locks tied neatly by the side of her head.
Captain Black - Now, it'd be time to make yer mind up Neptune.
Neptune - Ahh, I'd have to choose... Piarate B!
(The crew jubilates at her choice)
Captain Black - Good choice. Now, could Pirate B step from behind the wall.
Pirate B was the finest shipmate Neptune had ever layed her ocean blue eyes on!
Captain Black - To get to know each other better, ye be going on a voyage to Lincoln island.
Neptune had always wanted to go to Lincoln and had been stuck on Admiral all her young life. The pillage be their most successful they'd ever had and they had a mighty fine time on their voyage. It seemed Neptune really had found true love on 'eye-patched date' and was even considering having little sandcrabs with Redbeard of Scrimshaw.
Arrggg, that be the pirates life.
Happy Valentines (:
Thanks for the competition

Additional note: I decided to add colour/color to the article to make it easier to read in this case, but as a publication it could just be all in black or pink.

Dear ShArrrie,

I've gotten myself into a bit of a situation. A few days back I was chatting with one of my hearties over MSN and told her that one of my SOs had run off with a GF of mine. Unfortunately, in my slight state of despair, I accidentally sent the message to one of my coworkers instead. I didn't think much of it at the time, and just told him to disregard what I had previously sent him as the Puzzle Pirate universe was completely unbeknown to him, and he could not possibly offer any words of sympathy in my current situation. However, when I arrived at work the next day there were various rumours circulating our office. From the message I sent him, my coworker somehow came to the proposturous conclusion that my significant other had run off with my girlfriend. (Bless the Three Rings and the duel meaning acronyms they chose for the game.) Now everyone at work thinks I'm some kind of womanizer who doesn't know how to treat a girl so they resort to running off with each other. Even my boss came up to me the other day and told me to keep my chin up as there are plenty of other fish in the sea. But worst of all, my girlfriend buys all these rumors and now she won't even look at me. Valentine's Day is coming up and I was really hoping to pop the question that day. What should I do?

Lost in Love

Dear Lost,

That is quiet a story. In my many years of experience, honesty has always seemed to be the best policy. Introduce all your coworkers to the fascinating world of Puzzle Pirates and the rumours will stop once they realize that SO and GF have duel meanings in the YPP universe. It's a win-win situation. The rumours will cease and with all the referals you will be sure to have gained enough poe to buy another GF. Or maybe even two. As far as the girlfriend issue goes, if she really is the one, explain to her what the rumours are all about and she'll come around. I hope this helps. Let me know how it all works out.

Sincerly, ShArrrie

Re: [Entry thread] PUZZLE PIRATES WEEKLY Valentine's edition.
Here's my short story for Valentine :)

How Valentine really happened

Once upon a time in the land of St.valentine , there lived a beautiful girl , so beautiful that no man had ever managed to express a single sound after seeing the girl .

She lived alone in the deepest part of the forest together with her two wolves called Cayne and Nayga which she had been taking care of since they were abandoned at birth .

One day a letter arrived ,
" Dear inhabitants , it is with great sorrow that I announce the disappearance of our beloved prince and princess . If you have any information about their location then please send us a carrier pigeon as soon as possible , a reward of 5000 PoE is assured ,
Yours sincerely,
St.Valentine ."

It started to storm heavily . The unstable shack started to shake , the girl took her dogs and ran out of the house right as it collapsed under the pressure of the storm.

The darkness scared her . she could hear some owls behind her and in the distance a tree was set on fire by the lightning which gave her a good view on a nearby cave . She stepped closer and strangely she could see light beams coming from the cave . She decided to see what was going on .

"Haha , your time has finally come , give me the location of the treasure chamber and your people won’t have to suffer" , the princess said .

But right as the prince wanted to answer Cayne and Nayga came in and attacked the princess whilst the girl started freeing the beautiful prince , but unlike any other he didn’t lose his ability to speak .
"Who are you" , the prince said and he passed out , the girl had finally found her equal .

The girl handed out the evil to St . Valentine and the prince was in safe hands once again .
But when Valentine offered her the 5000 PoE , she immediately refused and asked if she could marry the prince instead .

The king took a short while but then agreed to the wedding and he declared that February 14 would be known as Valentine .
The girl and the prince then married each other and they lived happily ever after as prince and princess Valentine .

Love is in the Air

The Date is 13th February in the Year of the Ox on the Malachite Ocean

Just saw my crystal ball, that there is love in the air for two unlikely ocean characters. I can’t reveal who this unlikely pairing is between. I’m sure you will never guess. I will unfold what was revealed to me in the mists.

While deep beneath the ocean one of our lonely hearts hides waiting for his next passing meal. He is unaware that there is a lady pirate of some repute who at this moment is sitting at the cove on Vipers Drop weeping for the love that can never be.
She suddenly looks up with hope in her eyes and races to her home with a lighter step. She returns to the beach with a bottle with a piece of parchment inside and sealed with a red cork. She whistled and out of the tide appeared a friendly dolphin. The lady pirate whispered to the dolphin, which took the bottle and disappeared back into the tide.

There is much activity on the cove with many comings and goings and many mysterious packages being offloaded from a large black ship. Among the palms that border the cove a beautiful creation is being erected I wonder what it could be? There are many pirates in the unlikely task of stringing garlands of frangipani through the fronds of the palms. Pirates scour the rocks and tidal pools gathering shellfish and little crawly things.

Just before sunset our lovely lady pirate returns to the water’s edge and drops the deepest red rose petals on the sand and walks back the way she came dropping more as she goes.
The sun is now setting and a large shape slithers from the waves and follows the trail of rose petals. The trail meanders over the sand concluding at a magnificent Bedouin tent of pink and red organza. On the sea breeze wafts the mingling scents of frangipani and incense, soft music can be heard coming from the interior. Our mysterious visitor stops at the entrance as though hesitant to enter. The curtain parts, you can glimpse the twinkling of lights of many candles in the dim interior and a shadowed outline of a reclining figure. He enters.......

........sometime later from the tent can be heard the clinking of glasses and a high feminine laugh mingled with a deeper unearthly chuckle. We will leave our newly acquainted pair for now and return at a more appropriate time.

It is just before dawn and the curtain parts two figures step out and follow the trail back to the water’s edge, where they stand together watching the sun rise out of the horizon. They turn to each other he grasps her in an embrace that looked as though it would never end. Slowly he releases her from his arms and reluctantly slithers back into the waves from where he came. She watches him go with a smile of contentment on her lips and a look in her eye that said ‘he will return we will be together again for now and forever’..........

That time I made you positively mine.
My heart was beating a twice its speed,
Your absolutely everything, I could possibly need.

So now were here a year goes so fast,
I've found the one I want to be with forever, at last.

The one I've loved forever, and more today.

Smiling and standing there dressed in blue.
Talking about how he defeated Vargas,
He says, For You I'd do anything, because you are so gorgeous.

I've written this poem with you in mind,
Your so generous, so lovely, and ever so kind.
As it this is read across the deep blue,
I want you to know, that I love you!

A True Story of Love and Conquest

It began on winter's day. The snow had fallen heavy during the night. Once she woke up and landed on Dragon's Nest I beckoned her to come forage on my ship. There was something about her. I didn't know what. There was something drawing me to spend time with her, a call I had to answer.

She came on board, gave an attractive smile and said "Ahoy" to everyone. I got a whimsical idea from inside my snow fort on deck and hurled a snowball at her. She let out an "Oof" and I wondered if I'd done too much to fast. She looked in my direction with a gleam in her eye and threw a snowball back at me. After some more snowy exchanges I gave her a few instructions on the proper art of snowball fighting. We had a fun and wet exchange. Upon her request I let her into my snowfort, just the two of us, while others foraged unknowingly.

We spent the rest of winter hurling snowballs at each other, in various quantities, whenever we'd see each other. The fun we had blossomed.

Our fun moved on one day, when standing on Dragon's Nest docks she got an evil grin and pushed me into the ocean. I crawled out and obliged her feminine whim and took my shirt off, laid on the dock and sunbathed, knowing she was watching. Our eyes met a few times and I wondered what she was thinking. I smiled inside at the depths of my charm.

As the weather warmed and the snow melted I pondered what to do to keep our new relationship fresh and vibrant. Then after another wet ocean swim she happened to mention to the crew that she'd been asked to participate in the upcoming pirate auction. A light bulb brightened and I knew what I had to do. I started making my plans.

The day of the auction arrived. I waited with baited breath until her name was mentioned and then began offering my bids. After a few raises from others I finally conquered and enslaved her to me. I snicker at the ease of this conquest and that she hasn't been bothered. Perhaps she wanted this as much as I did. She daily called me "Master" and lay at my feet even when fighting zombies. Oh where would this relationship lead. One can only hope.

Upon enslaving her my first task was to set up sleeping quarters for her on the floor so she'd have some comfort. I told her "The floor can be quiet comfortable when you're near the one you love". She smiled at me in agreement.

After making sure she was comfortable and happy, I gave her daily tasks for my amusement, but she never minded. With each request she smiled and willingly obeyed with ease. How I love my slave.

Now one could think that her enslavement is complete, but I have a feeling that she's pledged to me and I to her for a lot longer. The bond between us is deeper than any physical chains I could impose-although we may try someday. Such are the ways of love and conquest.

Additional info: All of this actually was said or done on Cobalt between me and one other pirate. It is a true story.

Easy Read Text : Love Puff Sweeps Seas

A vile and intoxicating 'Love Sickness' epidemic is sweeping the Cobalt ocean and is said to have made its way to Midnight and the green oceans during the early hours of this morning. Voodoo specialists have declared a state of emergency. The sickness is highly contagious and pirates have been urged to stay inside their piratey abodes until Valentine's day is officially over.

The sickness is said to cause an increase in hormones and periodically cloud the judgement of those infected. Reports of disturbing behavior have been flooding the Puzzle Pirates Weekly mail room since the outbreak. The cure is unknown but it is thought that the sickness will be cured by the end of Valentine's night.

The origin of the sickness is not fully known but eyewitness reports have shed some light on a possible source. It is assumed that the outbreak began on a small Cursed Island within the Garnet Archipelago on the Cobalt Ocean. Tourists at the time  reported a Doe-Eyed Cultist, infatuated with his sister's boyfriend's cousin's mother's friend Cultist - Betty (according to island gossip) was dancing around his cauldron in what seemed to be a ritualistic fashion reciting poorly written love poetry, chanting some form of a spell and throwing some form of pink powder into the cauldron. 

The reported sighting of this pink substance links the Doe-Eyed Cultist to the OM strawberry sherbet bust of last week where multiple OM's were found on sugar highs behaving erratically with mysterious pink substance mustaches later discovered to be strawberry sherbet. Consequently the sherbet ban was put in place by Captain Cleaver.  

The addition of the pink powder to the Doe-Eyed Cultist's cauldron is believed to be the cause for the unstable mixture. The eye witness reported shortly after the dancing, that he had heard what can only be described as a gurgling and painful rumble within the belly of the accused cultist before the explosion took place.

Experts theorise that the said cultist unwillingly 'pooted' sending his spell and already unstable potion amiss, creating an explosion. Shockwaves were sent throughout the tiny province and the jolts were described as similar to an earthquake. It has been reported that the fog transformed into a vibrant pink and a putrid yet pleasent smell released throughout the area. The Doe-Eyed Cultist is now missing, presumed dead from his own stench combined with the effects of his love potion. Thus the love sickness released and transmitted through the air to vessels and tourists within the province.

It is assumed by medical experts that vessels within the area have carried the airborne sickness out of the region and the pirates aboard unknowingly infected anyone within close proximity, distributing the sickness from island to island, arch to arch and even ocean to ocean.

Unusual behavior has since been sighted all over the Cobalt ocean. Rehio has been seen without his protective bubble in pink bunny slippers reciting poetry and giving free cuddles, a curious behavior indeed. the notorious Brigand King, Admiral Finius has been photographed in a compromising position 2 leagues from his getaway home of Oasis Island with a local Gorgonyx (The photographs can be found being sold on Yarr-Bay). For more unusual behavior reports, see the magazines gossip column.

If you believe you are infected, refrain from aphrodisiacs and drink a hearty amount of rum so that you may not remember your date the following day. A 7 day aphrodisiac ban has been put in place until the effects of the sickness has fully worn off. It is hoped that the damage of continuously looking at shades of pink will not burn the retinas of pirates and the lovey dovey behavior does not emotionally scar those that were lucky enough to escape the sickness.

Re: [Entry thread] PUZZLE PIRATES WEEKLY Valentine's edition.
Why not take a look at the entire ocean by a flying ship? Yes, I have invented the flying ship by magic-enchanting it with my stick. This stick is enchanted after using the gems I have foraged at Cursed Isles and then used to forge them together at my ironmonger though I had to put some poisionous tips onto it so I shipwrighted some shackles and put them in hot-poisy rum I have distilled it worked quite good but I painted it black-gold with my alchemistry. So building a flying ship wasn't easy but I did it.

It is a Baglah.
It takes 30 minutes to rise up and 30 minutes to rise down and the air-trip takes as much as you want-although pay for it hunnies yer on the valentines day ye gotta pay ye scurvy dogs-.
It is paying a fare enough to get you up in the air.
We use oceanwaste to get it up in the air because global-warming has affected our oceans.

However I really warn you to not to leave the place dirty because people you have to see the changes in climate. Lovers are in mad love sometimes but they do not think how they -dirt- around. Not only lovers, businessmen thinks only money but not nature. I have watched the film of Al Gore and I was impressed of it. I suggest all to watch it at
I know this is a bit out of the subject but that is the only way I could tell it to you.

-For the moment- no one from no oceans because I planned to delete my pirates and startover and I am thinknig of a good name.

-I gave away all the items I had-

Haddaway-What is love

He is handsome, indeed he is
Everytime I see him, I'm swept away in bliss
His charm, his wit, his wisdom unmached
His patience almost magnificent,
His complexion is unscratched.

He excels not only in intelligence,
But also in every aspect
What else is there to say
Except that he is perfect!

The girls they're always after you
Eash hoping to be with you
All the pirate men, they envy you
You do not boast though.

With all the strength of Herculis
You carry yourself well
All these words are not enough
Your exceptional charm tell.

Like an angel sent down from heaven
Everytime you walk by
I lose hold of my senses,
I just begin to fly.

I don't know how to tell you
This feeling that I feel
Cause everytime I see you
I get an enormous thrill.

I'd like to tell you who I am
But this feeling always hiders
You see ... er ... well, that is
You are my ocean master.

Alethia on Midnight
Short autobiographical fiction
Prize order as listed...unless "other deliciousness" includes a monkey or an that case, bring on the deliciousness!

about this story: This story is entirely true. I tried to piratify some of the RL elements but for all intenets and purposes this is how Treasuresal and I met, developed a friendship and eventually fell in love. I know that YPP love stories have happened before and will happen again but each one of them is unique and each of us are unique. On that note, I submit to you:
A True Tale of Piratey Love
Some time ago, in the Year of Our Cleaver two thousand and five, there lived a young wench who was called Alethia. Alethia lived a quiet, unassuming life on a large island known as Pennsylvania. One day, tired of the tediousness of her day to day pursuits, Alethia went to the oracle known as Google and sought out an answer for her troubles. The oracle searched the cosmos and a stream of possibilities flowed forth from the well of knowledge that is Google.

Alethia listened intently to all of the choices but stopped short upon hearing the word "pirate."
That was it! That was her gateway to adventure!

With no further delay Alethia volunteered for a life of piracy and following a brief tutelage under the Spring Island navy, joined ranks with a small but jolly crew called Azure Knights. Shortly after being taken into Azure Knights the crew joined the flag Faminto por Sangue and it was there that Alethia began her officer training. During these first few months of piracy Alethia met many other pirates. Some were to be quickly forgotten, some would be lost to the siren known as Re'all Ife, and still others would become true and lasting friends.

Perhaps the most important pirate Alethia came in contact with through Faminto por Sangue (though she hardly realized it at the time) was an upbeat, take no prisoners PVPer
named Treasuresal. On her first pillage with Sal, Alethia became distracted by some tells from a crewmate who wanted help opening an apothecary. When she explained the reason behind her
poor performance she was kindly told to pay attention to her duty or to leave the ship. Stung, Alethia realized this pirate meant business and proceeded to pay full attention to her station.

Months passed and Alethia continued to learn the ways of pirate living. She learned about many of her flagmates, Treasuresal included, and was surprised to learn through the Faminto forum that Treasuresal was, in actuality, a man who disguised himself as a woman when engaging in pirating activities.
And he was a really cute man!
But alas, with this knowledge came the accompanying fact that Treasuresal lived far away on the island of Flanders and that his heart belonged to another pirate.
In fact, Alethia attended Sal's piratey wedding and was very pleased to win a merchant brig during the post-ceremony merriment.

Time marched on and with it came the passing of Faminto por Sangue. Treasuresal had moved on to form his own crew while Alethia had left Azure Knights and joined the ranks of Phoenix Warriors.

Right around the time Alethia left Azure Knights she began experiencing severe bouts of insomnia. She was often awake far into the night and she began to see Treasuresal more and more as sleep eluded her. The two pirates got to know each other better and struck up an amiable friendship. Sal tried to give Alethia advice on handling a former cabin mate who was plaguing her existence in Pennsylvania while Alethia tried to give Sal some support when he split up with his piratey ex-love.

Communication between the two pirates became more and more frequent as they began sending MSNs in bottles and text pigeons back and forth to each other throughout the day.
At long last, in May of 2007 Treasuresal made a voyage to Pennsylvania and when the two pirates met for real they both knew that the winds of fate had finally carried them in the right direction.
Within the year Alethia sold her shack and her sloop, the Silver Elantrafish, and journeyed across the ocean to make a life and a home with Treasuresal.

Today they are living together happily in Sal's row house on the island of Flanders.
The Re'all Ife wedding is in May in the Year of Our Cleaver two thousand and ten.

My Hunger

As I lay in bed,
Thinking in my head,
Those short moments we spent together,
Which felt like forever.
I wonder if my mind has gone dead.

I remember gazing into your gentle eyes,
It made me feel like I was flying in the sky.
The soft brush of your fingers,
I wanted it to linger.
I did not want to say good-bye.

But the reality is,
You have a Mrs.
I want you for myself,
So she can not have you for herself.
I flinch at all your kisses.

I can only crave,
And must behave.
I can not make a scene,
And feel green*.
I must not become depraved.

All I can do is dream,
Of us together - that is extreme.
The longing ache I feel,
Is very real
But we will never be a team.

So I must let you go.
But first I want you to know,
That I hope we can still be friends,
And understand if we can not transcend.
I know one day I will find my John Doe.

Exclusive Interview: The life of Cupid, King of Hearts

The busiest person around this time of year must surely be Cupid, shooting his bow to inspire love at this the most romantic of seasons. Our correspondent Janepeg tracked him down on Sage ocean and he graciously agreed to answer a few questions.

Janepeg: You are most well-known for your prowess at hearts, how did you get to become so good?
Cupid: I have made a career out of finding the right person for each heart. Each one goes to the pirate I select. I also make sure that the each black lady finds someone to be together with.

Janepeg: What about that bow of yours how does that work?
Cupid: Only once have I missed and that was a long time ago when I accidentally shot myself in the foot. My shooting accuracy also applies to guns making me one of the best gunners on the ocean.

Janepeg: I hear you are quite an apothecary do you make love potions?
Cupid: The Gods have not enabled me to produce a love potion, I have to rely on my bow and arrows. However, there are many potions I can produce that can help. I have potions than can remove the most horrendous scars of pirate life, while many find those injuries proof of being a brave pirate others find them unattractive. My potions will make your body as unblemished as a new born greenie. If your partner is tired of your old look or you are trying to attract the attention of someone who is only attracted to well-tanned blonds I can also produce potions to give you a complete cosmetic make-over.

Janepeg: What is your advice to our readers to maintain there relationship?
Cupid: Accept is wont always be plain sailing but strike while the iron is hot when it is, work hard to repair the relationship before the damage gets too bad, know where you are going together and carefully navigate a true course to get there and when they do something wrong deal out forgiveness in spades.

Janepeg: What would you recommend for those in relationships that have become strained?
Cupid: There will always be times when you get into fights whether you are on land or all at sea. My advice would be to let your partner win, if you really love them you would prefer them to have the joy of winning than to have it yourself.

Janepeg: What are your views on alcohol?
Cupid: While drinking can take away the some of the inhibitions of attracting a partner, having too much will just make you an embarrassment and drastically reduce your performance. The key is to only drink in moderation.

Janepeg: Is there anything to avoid completely?
Cupid: If you want love never touch bilge, it will only pour cold water over the relationship.
Apollo tells ye "If you're ok for me to do one [bake-off], I'll go with that."

RL proof: Not sure what is needed/required but here the info about the creation of this article. All of the writing/photos were created by me. The food I cooked (yes, w/out burning myself or my house down!:P) and photographed. The couple is me and my boyfriend and the beach I took while in CA during Xmas time (yus! NO snow!). I then drew over/photo-manipulated the photographs to look a bit more like drawings (as I don't imagine pirates used camera's :P). I also tried to create items that I thought were piratey both in game, like the daisy trinket, and in RL. As some of the photos were not created for this contest, I only have the food one's with a name tag. Here's my RL photos.

Awesome event! I had a lot of fun :D

Cultists, Cadavers and Cuddling
By Hawkings

With secluded beaches, cozy rustic cabins and plenty of activities for even the most cantankerous of pirates, the Ominous Cove of Delirium has long been an overlooked treasure of the oceans. Nestled far off normal pillaging and trade routes, you'll not find a more maudlin location to take your sweetheart to this Valentine's Day for a romantic getaway.

Your amorous adventure begins as you approach the lush beaches. The first thing that you and your mate will experience is the cool mist that wrap the picturesque island. Taking in the intoxicating aromas will beg you to find a quiet corner in which to hold your trembling mate tightly and give yourselves over to eternity. Within moments of being sighted, many exuberant natives will sail out to greet you as you and your valentine vigorously set to work to quickly land your craft in paradise. As you make your way through the flotilla of saluting rafts, sloops and cutters, some of the natives will offer to come aboard and help with duty stations and if you choose some are even willing become a thrall to your companion during your visit, and who wouldn't want their very own thrall for Valentine's Day?

Once you two lovebirds have enjoyed an intimate time sailing to the reticent beach you will be vigorously greeted by a friendly group of natives that will lead you in a traditional island dance. Once you have taken part in this ritual you and your truelove will have time check in and explore your surroundings. You both will love the cozy rustic shack that will serve as your accommodations during your visit.

There are plenty of activities for you and your beloved to enjoy intimately together. Activities include taking part in native death dances, participating in cultist rituals, foraging through the local shops for souvenirs, or just exploring the cove hand in hand with your sweetheart. If you are fortunate, your host, Vargas the Mad, will appear to greet you and lead you in a punishing ritual dance or two. Don't worry about missing any of island's activities however, because the friendly natives will faithfully announce all opportunities to join their dances and rituals.

Before you leave don't for get to pick up some souvenirs for your valentine. The island gift shop is full trinkets and souvenirs that will stop the heart of your significant other. Souvenirs include bundles of hemlock, cursed effigies, jars of homunculus, masks, native spears, jewelry and much, much more. And, don't forget to pick up an exclusive t-shirt or sweatshirt in traditional islander colors before returning to civilization.

This Valentine's day surprise your truelove with an adventure that will give the two of you a chance to spend some intimate time together. The Ominous Cove of Delirium is the perfect locale for an romantic getaway and once the two of you have visited you may find you never want to leave. Trips to the cove fill up fast so don't miss your chance and get your reservations made today. It will be a romantic tryst that you and your valentine will not soon forget.

The Love Bug
It’s that time of year again. Christmas has come and gone, leaving us with a bad taste in our coffers. The sales are over. And now, rushing towards us with open arms comes Valentines.
Pirates everywhere are already being affected by the, piratically confirmed, affliction that attaches itself to the Valentines season. The ‘Love Bug’.
The love bug is an unfortunate affliction that causes those affected to, almost literally, see pink. Other symptoms include a semi-permanent dazed grin on their face and a very un-piratey sense of overall happiness.
Some famous pirates who have been seen to have caught the love bug are; Apollo (although it’s quite hard to tell) and everyone’s favourite madman, Vargas, who has been spotted sporting a rather fetching pink/white number, with love hearts braided into his hair.
Due to the lack of known cures, the love bug spreads like wildfire during the Valentines season until almost all pirates, on every ocean, have been infected. Making everywhere seems a happier place, for the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day.
Some misery-guts (to use the technical term) are naturally immune to the love bug, wearing dour faces and funeral-esk outfits of various mixes of browns, blacks and greys. While not a cure for the bug, misery-guts can be used as a preventative measure from the bug, as one misery-guts standing near you will create a large area in which your love stricken fellows will avoid at all costs.
So remember this Valentines season, if you feel an urge to buy yourself that lovely pink outfit, or if you start becoming happy all of a sudden, remember, you can just let yourself go and join your poor, helpless, love fuelled pirate brethren or run to the nearest misery-guts and never leave their side.
Whatever you decide to do, the love bug mysteriously disappears on the 15th of February, so whatever your choice of action you’ll be back to your normal, miserable, pirate self.

Ask Captain Knowsey!

Candy for the pirate soul!

Mutiny Ahoy!

Dear Captain Knowsey,

Alas! My crew has treacherously deceived me…they who I thought to be my mates have stabbed a knife in my back with a smile on their wicked faces. Let me explain, they be my crewmates, my senior officers my confidantes and now my arch enemies (I swear by my falchion!) those traitors! I was gone for a couple of weeks on a vacation to the Bahamas with my (prettier than Calypso) wife and hence I left my crew in the care of my senior officer (two faced weasel) Carambola. However when I returned back(rejuvenated and tanned), I found that Carambola along with the other Senior officers had declared mutiny against me and my crew was now oligarchic and taken over by them. Now I am left crewless, friendless, sad and fuming to roam these waters! I want revenge! I cannot stop thinking about how I was deceived and tricked by that evil Carambola! Please help me!

*Captain(no more) Billimoreya
(ex)Crew – Forever Together - Sage Ocean

Dear Billimoreya,

Mate you need to get a grip on your emotions! Your anger will cloud your judgment, try to make light of the day. Carambola was evil in taking your crew but then you were gullible enough too in trusting your crew with the wrong person. Forgive but do not forget! Start a new crew, make it even better and bigger than your earlier crew….then there’s always PvP….ah revenge is sweet! After all you are a pirate!

Alas! My Marooned Heart!

Dear Knowsey,

My boyfriend has deserted me for another woman! I be a lovelorn lady with a broken heart. I cannot stop thinking about him. Everything reminds me of him. From the inns we used to frequent to the quiet sloop rides by the sea with the fresh sea wind in our faces. I cannot get him out of my mind. He tells me he loves me no more but alas! My piratey heart beats only for him. How do I get him back? Please help!

Senior Officer
Crew- Divine Intervention – Hunter Ocean

Dear Lovesickluna,

I feel your pain being a lady myself. Ever heard of the phrase ‘If you really love someone let them go’? Completely untrue! So let your man know how much you love him and adore him. Men especially pirates need to be reminded too about how much they are loved and appreciated! And what better time to do this then Valentine’s Day! Write him a love poem reminding him of those good times, bake him an enchanted cake (recipe in this issue) and let him know that he is the only one who can blockade your heart!

My Love For Poker Be My Bane!

Dear Captain Knowsey,

I was once a rich pirate but now be a pauper….and my arch nemesis be poker. Poker made me rich but it quickly became an addiction. I just cannot stop gambling. Poker has become a necessity and I am sinking to saddening lows for the PoE. From selling furniture and personal belongings to borrowing from friends I have tried it all just for the PoE and ended up alienating myself from my friends and crew. Today I lost my girlfriend because of poker and owe huge debts to my friends and crew members, but I still cannot stop gambling! Please help!

Senior Officer
Crew – Crisp Noodles – Viridian Ocean

Dear Poepike,

I understand your predicament having indulged in poker myself….ahem! However you have to understand that like everything else in life, with poker also - moderation is the key. So try to limit the amount of PoE you spend on poker but first and it’s a big FIRST you need to pay back the debt you owe to people who were kind enough to help you with the PoE. I suggest doing this by channelising all your energy and attention towards what we pirates do best and are born to do – pillaging. Use your battle navigating skills to plunder loots from the seas and slowly but surely pay your friends back because nothing in this world …no addiction is worth losing your friends over. Because pirates we may be and PoE we may crave for but a pirate’s real treasures are his friends and crew mates!

Happy Valentine’s Day all! May your Seas be Steady and Ships be Safe! Fair winds!
- Captain Knowsey

Ahoy me mateys! Valentine's Day is fast approachin, and I know that many of you are scrambling to find something that will impress that young lass of yours. Why not show her the sweet, sensitive side of your barnacled heart and take her to one of the many shows being performed on the Cobalt Ocean. These reviews of only some of the shows being performed will hopefully help you make your decision. They're only a whisk away!

A War Brig Named Desiarr

Now, I have some questions. 1. Is 'Desiarr' even a valid rename? 2. What kind of pirate name is 'Stanley', anyway? And finally, 3. What kind of wench wouldn't want a drunk, murderous blaggard as a husband? Take her to see this play and find out what happens with Stanley and the two wenches in his life, and see how a REAL pirate should act! Being performed on a ship docked at Napi Peak. Space is limited.

A Midsummer Night's Docktart

Captain Helena is in love with Cabin Boy Demetrius, but he's in love with Officer Hermia. And Officer Hermia is in love with Pirate Lysander! Talk about yer steamy love... circle! In fact, things get so heated between these four pirates that the OMs decide to intervene, and with interesting consequences. Come see what happens for these pirates and their chat circle in A Midsummer Night's Docktart. Being performed on the docks of Dragon's Nest.

South Cobalt

Arr, like a bit o' music, do ye? Well, then, take yer lady friend to see the musical South Cobalt! The story of a group of pirates and lasses who are trying to colonize a small remote island, but things change when one of the pirates falls in love with a local native and one of the lasses falls for the would-be-governor. With such musical numbers as "Gonna Wash That BK Right Outta My Hair", and "There Is Nothin' Like a Wench" you're guaranteed to have fun! Being performed on Windward Vale.


Finally, we have the musical XxoAnnieoxx, also known as "Little Greenie Annie". The tale of a lonely greenie, whose only wish is to have a crew to belong to, and a Captain to love her. But XxoAnnieoxx gets more then she bargained for when one day, the richest Captain of the most famous crew on the ocean takes a shine to her, and decides to let her join. With musical numbers like "Let's Go To Atlantis", and "Yer Never Fully Dressed Without Some Poe" this musical is sure to tug at the heartstrings of even the toughest pirate. Being performed at Tigerleaf Mountain.

Front page:


Familiar specialists at Pork'n Bean Zoo on Lima island have issued an official warning this week to all familiar owners about a highly contagious bug. An increasing number of familiar owners have sent /tells to the specialists expressing their concern about their familiar's 'abnormal' behaviour. Parrot owners have noticed their birds flying in a delirious manner, one owner said, "I let my parrot fly around for a while, to stretch its wing, however it ended up flying all over the place and straight into a tree!" Monkey owners have reported that when their monkey was given a coconut it would immediately carve a heart into it. Octopi owners have found themselves covered in red ink which their slimy friends continue to squirt at them.

Eyebrows are being raised as to what exactly is the cause of this unusual behaviour, however, only one man knows and that is Doctor H.R.T Lurve. He informed us that what the familiars are suffering from is what is known as the "Love bug". The bug originates from the fog surrounding Vargas the Mad's cursed isles. Some have claimed that his love for all things frenetic was what made this fog. Symptoms of this bug include sporadic behaviour, inability to make any sound and insomnia. Some familiars may also demand that their owners recolour them to red, pink, rose, magenta or maroon.

However, it's not only our shoulder warmers that seem to have contracted this bug. A crew of six officers engaged the monkey boat (also known as MONKEE BOTE) only to be faced with sprinkles of hearts and chocolate instead of swords during their swordfight.

Dr Lurve said that the "love bug" will only last until the 15th of Feburary and that familiars will return to their normal behaviour. It seems that love is not only in the air, but on our shoulders during this amorous season.

Edward Teach the Sixth, or Six as he was called by family and friends, the last known remaining descendant of the notorious pirate, Blackbeard, passed on to piratey heaven on Friday, February 13, 2009 at his estate on Napi Peak.

After Blackbeard's death and beheading by Robert Maynard off the coast of North Carolina, his family took refuge on the Cobalt Ocean. They scattered among the islands with Edward the Sixth's branch of the Teach clan settling on Tigerleaf Mountain.

Six was born in a simple but well-cared for cottage. His father worked at the local iron monger while his mother took in work for
the many tailors on the island. The young lad and his sister, Ariadna, would roam the island daily dreaming of the fabled treasure of their great-great-great grandfather Blackbeard.

When Six turned twelve he was given his first sloop. He and Ariadna would sail from dawn to dusk reliving the glorious tales that had been passed down through the years about the infamous Blackbeard.

As Six grew older, his ships grew larger. He soon gained a reputation as large as the great Blackbeard himself. He preyed upon the Midnight Ocean and would return with treasure for the inhabitants of Cobalt to enjoy.

In his declining years, Six settled into a comfortable estate on Napi Peak. He never married but it has been rumored that he has several children in different ports across the ocean.

All of his wordly goods have been inherited by his young caretaker, Badnews and the staff of his estate.

Arrangements for his burial have remained private and will not be disclosed to the public.

--Athens of Hunter
--I did a crafting article , because you can't have a article without art!
-- Standard listing is fine for prizes

Link to larger image.

Complete text because the image is far to small to read unless holding the real paper.

This week’s Paper Sword craft is in Honor of the awakening of the Homunculus! Both ghoulish and captivating this creature of the backwoods is on the hunt for heads! That’s why today we are going to be making Shrunken Pirate Heads. Shrunken heads are perfect for killing time on those week long voyages to the Cursed Isle and can be made with items found in nearly every port. As an added bonus these heads can even ward off the greatest beast of them all, Scurvy!
Items you will need:
A few apples- I suggest two
Your handy knife
A large bucket
Sea water, or just table salt and water for Landlubbers
Lemon, lime or pineapple juice
Start by adding water, salt and whatever juice you choose to your bucket. Half a cup of salt and a hefty swig of juice should serve you well.
Next, peel your apples. It’s fine if you leave a bit of peel around the top and bottom; after all we are pirates not artists. When done peeling, dunk your apple in the bucket you already have ready. This will help stop your apple from turning brown and will deter other pirates from eating your craft.
Pull out your knife and carve whatever face you fancy into the now waiting apple. Once done, drop your apple into your waiting bucket and leave the apple bobbing around for 24 hours. Don’t worry if your apples bob around like a flotsam, this is normal.
After your apple has floated about for a day, remove it and find a hot, dry place for it to start shrinking. If you want to speed up the drying process place your apple in the oven at 200F for up to eight hours. Once out of the oven the apple will still need to sit and dry for up to a week.
The last step is to dress up your apple however you fancy. Keep in mind that you only want to use items that won’t rot or ruin your new shrunken head. Good luck pirates!
