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

Midnight mentality: It's all about <insert one's own name>, what I want, and how things were back in 2005.
Midnight politics: All raffles are rigged so Vova can't win. shhhhh.
Midnight economy: They say there's a labour shortage but whenever I have more than one acct subbed, I can't find them steady work unless I take a job paying 5/10/15. Do you think I'm going to bother working for that? No. (See Midnight mentality above....)
Midnight people: 65% of the population is Harrjm.

On Midnight foraging is better paid than on Cobalt. Normal Prices here are about 7/27/100/2700 and higher when some people try to overbid the others.

On Midnight there are stalls where you can work for real wages with labour to do all the time. /me points to his signature.

On Midnight blockades are usually at a lower pay level than on cobalt. Starting pay usually is 500 per seg or even 400 against weak BKs.

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

Most people on Midnight have been playing the game for a long long time. This means we are very opinionated and set in our ways as a result the smallest little changed can cause a shit storm of controversy (esp. on the forums!)

However because we are so fussy it means that most of our islands are not over developed (other than Nu and Jorvik). We really do take our islands seriously, try not to over build and be careful where you place new shoppes!

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

Interesting Midnight Tidbits:

Some islands don't follow all the building rules as they were built before some of the rules were made. Some examples, but I'm sure not all are:
* Winter Solstice has 2 Weavery shops but no bazaar.
* Cnossos and Cranberry have 2 Inns

Many areas around Midnight have extinct league points which older pirates may have memmed. These points can no longer be memmed.

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

Middy used to be full of action and adventure. Way back when, I used to be able to make 30k in a day's sailing easy. Now I am lucky if I can make 10K a day. And many times I'll look at the board there are no ships even out. There used to be a lot of fun blockades with tons of boomy action and poe to be made. Now there are blocks but without the other side fighting it's just sad. Aside of all that, Middy still has some great players and for the most part they get along pretty well.
Also tarting on Alpha used to be a must and the Diamond arch was always filled with people.

Fun fact: Midnight is the only ocean with extinct league points. Players who memorized those points can chart them for anyone. However, it's currently impossible for them to be memorized.

"REAL" fact: Vova has both male and female genitalia.


Another "REAL" fact: Harrjm got pulled over by the cops while wearing womens clothes and listening to wham.


For the purpose of this thread, some things may have been changed, you decide which.
