Atlantis Invasion! Saturday 27th December, 2pm Server Time.

The people of Atlantis are having a Christmas Party, and you are all invited!

The introductory event thread for these Atlantis invasions can be seen here, and the relevant rules from that thread are also copied below.

Invasion site: Flooded Forum
Location: Between Macaw and Delta
Archipelago: Coral
Date: Saturday 27th, December
Time: 2pm game time (type /info in the game to see current game time if you're unsure)
Hosted by: Arrbeard


* Please read the rules below or in the event thread linked above.
* Make sure you have a chart for the route on which the outpost is found (Macaw-Delta), if you have any intention of surviving and making it to port!
* We will whisk ships from anywhere in the ocean for this invasion. Ships with significant amounts of trade commodities will not be whisked.
* From 2pm onwards, Arrbeard will be distributing Atlantis Maps so that you can job for Atlantis on the board. Put your request for a map IN THIS THREAD, listing the name of the pirate running the vessel, and the name of the vessel. If the pirate is not on that vessel, no map will be given. The map will be placed on the vessel, and the vessel whisked at that time. Make sure that you have your supplies in order (after all, who knows if they even *have* rum and shot in such a far off place?) Note that you do not require an Atlantis map to take part, only ask for a map if you wish to place a job offer on the board, and do not already have an Atlantis map.
* The event will be broadcast at 2pm, and again at 3pm.
* Once we hit 3pm, one person on each ship can send a tell to Arrbeard to ask for a whisk. That person should stay on the ship you want whisked! Please be patient if I don't get straight to you - don't send repeats. The whisk will occur immediately upon Arrbeard's arrival, so don't send a tell until you're ready to go!
* Arrbeard will whisk for TWO HOURS, so the last whisks he will do will be at 5pm game time. (You don't have to go home then,
though. :) )

* As stated below, We'll whisk as many ships as you like to the board, so if you just want to sink a whole lot of ships, We'll happily be your taxi service of doom.

Special Note: I end up having to tell each ship this individually, so I'll mention it here. When your ship is whisked, it sometimes looks as if it's sailing somewhere; it's not, you have been whisked, and have already arrived, it's just the game not expecting to have whisked, and getting confused. You'll notice that the Explore The Ruins button is there, and you can go straight in.

The default rules wrote: 

Generic rules
  • We will whisk you there, but not back (and see the rules below for further constraints on whisking). You need to look for the announcement of which islands the Atlantis site is between, and ensure that someone with you has a chart between those islands, or has the route memorized, so that you can get back to port afterwards.
  • When you job for this event, you can either place a chart on the table, configure for sea monster hunting, job, then remove the chart; or you can job as if for pillaging. Either will work. You do not need a chart to the specific Atlantis site being invaded. If you're jobbing for pillaging, please ensure that the people you hire are aware that you are going on a sea monster hunt, and that they must be a bravery badge holder or a subscriber.
  • When you are ready to go, send a tell to the OM or alt who is organizing the invasion, and wait patiently. The tell should be sent by JUST ONE PERSON on each ship - typically the navigator or XO - and that person should remain aboard the ship while waiting. A simple "Please whisk us" will do.
  • Once the starting time has been reached, whisking will begin. The OM or alt will come onto your ship and whisk you to the invasion site. From there, you can use the Explore Ruins option to enter the site.
  • Normal rules for Atlantis entry apply. Everyone entering Atlantis must be a bravery badge holder (on doubloon oceans) or a subscriber (on subscription oceans). If you attempt to enter with any ineligible pirates on board, you will get a message that tells you the names of those pirates. They need to leave the ship, then you can try again.
  • Once you're at the invasion site, it's your choice what you do. You can team attack the monsters, you can attack each other, you can choreograph complex ballets with a GORGONYX, you can duck in and treasure haul, you can race for the citadel, you can dash straight in and sink.
  • You can participate on as many ships as you like, so if your first one sinks, fill another!
  • There is no set end-time for the invasions; if you're happy to stay there, please do! There will be a end-time for whisking though, either expressed as a particular time, or in terms of duration. (e.g. "Last whisks at 10:30", or "whisks available for one hour".)
  • If you are already on a sea monster hunt when the mass invasion is broadcast, we will whisk you from your current Atlantis site to the invasion site if you wish. The same is true for ships in flotillas. In both cases, we can only whisk you from the league point (i.e. you have to sail off the Atlantis/flotilla board to be whisked).


  • If there are any questions about this specific event, please ask here. If you have questions about the overall event concept, you may want to post them in the Events thread linked near the top of this post.
