Dragons nest inn was ruined after the OMs gave the keys to the island to some tarts who decided to upgrade it. I liked the old one :|

Ahoy Midnighter's (soon to be fellow Cerulean's) I'm Steveb and my crew was created the day after Cobalt so is 1 OF if not THE oldest crew remaining on Cobalt (but probably won't be the oldest on Cerulean as Midnight was Created before Cobalt.) Thats the fact, Economy wise, if yer looking to open up a stall on the Cobalt side I'd recommend Prolix Purlieu or Kirin, Prolix has the cheapest opening costs and taxes but has so many stalls that everyone is trying to be cheapest so ye could end up making a loss, where as Kirin might have higher opening costs and taxes but it seems to be the place where everyone buys.

Re: Get to know your neighbor! Win a renamed sloop! (deadline Jan 3rd)
My tidbit comes from very early Coblat.

In the beginning, less than a month after Coblat opened, the Ringers decided to open the Big Three islands for blockade on the same weekend. The blockade was set up with the Ringers defending (with help from some Midnight navvers -- any MNers old enough to remember this?). It was agreed, since we had no shipyards yet, they would not use ships bigger than we had, would not put more ships on the board than we had, and aside from starting supplies would not magic up more.

During the blockade, Nenya, who later admitted that opening the three large islands at once was a mistake, attempted to correct that mistake by going against the initial agreement and blocking all three of the islands from being colonised. The result was the sinking of a lot of ships and well, it was not pretty. Much tarting was to be had, and many ships were returned to the attackers. To this day, those three isles remain in Ringer hands. Events were had where pirates owned them for a short time and were able to build some shops.



And, just an added tidbit about those flags:
Sun Dynasty - Pennsuedo Never took an island on Coblat and the flag disbanded shortly after the blockade fiasco.
Hydrophobia - Bibity (my flag) Took Olive island when it opened, and while not terribly active, the flag does still exist, making it if not the only, one of the oldest on the ocean.
Something Powerful - Sneako Took Kirin island when it opened.

Re: Get to know your neighbor! Win a renamed sloop! (deadline Jan 3rd)
Hi New Friends!!!

I'm Cee. The resident Wine addict. I gun and distill. Sometimes carp. Don't ask me to do much else. I get crabby. Nice to meet you all!!!



My lil Cobalt Tidbits:

- Even though I claimed that I hated all the blockades Darlie threw in succession, I love that it changed the ocean's politics and alliance circles. They were so dead, and new friend circles were made.

- Our flag loves a good BK blockade! On Dragon's Nest, Static fought a 19 strength. On Kirin, a 17!

- Cybrpyro's favorite beer isn't Kirin, it's Sam Adams

- Xelliana is the only Cobalt pirate that has the Ultimate of Ultimates Trophy with all of the current puzzles. He's only missing #1 distill.

- (Which leads me to...) Stevensam/his alts held #1 distill for all of 2011 (and I hope that by posting this I jinx him and steal the spot!)

Cobalt has some fun recurring events:
- Yarr Talk's Effed-up Flotilla Fridays (Drinking Game)
- Mixed Nuts Monday Night Pillages
- The PoE is Right (do I get brownie points for that?)
- FFF used to run Sloopy Poopy
- Morbuzaan used to run a montly blockade, until someone made him choose one of Cybr's islands and he ran off to another ocean


- While some people still talk about how everything on Cobalt was better 5-6 years ago... I prefer to live in the present. I think it's pretty fun now (otherwise, why would I still be here?!?!). Small ocean with quality players who work together :) I'm glad that we're merging with Middy, and the rest have run off to Viridian.


Thanks for a cute even, Steven! Can't wait to meet all the Ceruleanites! Ceruleanese?

I believe Thegame has the trophy as well.

Cobalt is a nice ocean filled with great people, there is basically one rule: Don't be stupid. You will be treated well if you're not stupid.

Re: Get to know your neighbor! Win a renamed sloop! (deadline Jan 3rd)
Kittentamer, though quietly observing some times and tarting quite merrily at others, has observed the code for sea monster hunts if nothing else:

Once aboard, claim your favorite standard puzzle or request the rules for applying for gunner/dedicated defender.

*If* you qualify, or those running the ship know you had in the past *and* did a good job, ask to be on the list.

If you did not make it, don't complain too much about it or we will all cheer once you are planked.

Take your station, do it diligently, pay attention, and you'll be jobbed whenever you apply, asked to job whenever you don't, and sometimes gift subbed if that is the only reason you can't make it!

It comes down to respect for your fellow pirate, and most of all respect for those running the ship. I've been on some sinkers that sank only because they were new runners and didn't make full use of this, and guess what? We all thanked them for the run and politely asked if anyone got any cool injuries.

Oh, and if Hagrid is on ship, he tends to get the familiar on divy. He has to complete the Harry Potter character list somehow and the game seems to want to help.

On Kirin, The bank is dedicated to all the pirates Cobalt has lost. It is called "Thinking of Brew," since the island has a Beer theme. Many memories and respect go along with that memorial building, and I hope you Midnighters pay a visit once the merge occurs.

Like the Lime Dye novelty that is on midnight, Cobalt had this amusing incident as told by IVDripper that has caused Navy Dye to be purchasable at Olive and TLM (although the buy offer is gone at TLM, boo Mr. Governor):

 
The episode of navy dye placed by Hypnos to which I am referring is from when Foil owned Olive and made Hypnos governor. Hypnos thought it would be fun to put it in the palace for sale. There were 5 units and we scooped them up right away. I can't remember the price, it wasn't cheap. It was either later that day or the next day that the dye in the ship hold was replaced with the money we had payed for it. I guess Hyps thought it wasn't a good idea after all. And away went the 5 units of navy dye.

Though making nice events, some cobaltians don't know that there is no point in buying all rum on the isles connecting the ocean and trying to sell it for 30.000.
