Adrielle of Viridian's Rum Supplying Invention!


Link to larger version

Octopus (A) uses sword to cut cord (B), triggering wooden shelf (C) to tilt. The vase with wildflowers (D) falls off of the shelf, dropping onto the boot mechanism (E), triggering the boot mechanism to spin. Boot mechanism makes contact with (and kicks) the cannon ball (F), sending it down the ramp. The cannon ball bumps over the sticks (G) that are holding up some heavy carpentry pieces (H), then the cannon ball is stopped from travelling any further by the lumbar stack. The carpentry pieces are then free to weigh down the cord attached to the two pulleys, and ultimately the rum barrel (I), causing the release lever on the rum barrel to be pulled up. This sends the precious liquid from inside the rum barrel pouring into the waiting mouth of Adrielle, who is waiting comfortably on her bamboo sleeping mat!

The pressure in the barrel push the cork which hit the box with the grey mouse (E), who start running in the second band. In the other side of the gear (F), all the box start turning in the poker table (H). In the box, the grey mouse move another gear, which deal the poker cards for each player.

Ibringdoom's contraption of Treasure Hauling for Bnavers!

Do you bnav Sea monster hunts? Do you often want to help in the hauling effort? The hauling of monsters YOU sank?



The b-naver turns his Bronze Helm (1) turning the rope coil attached to the dog's tail (2). The dog jumps in fright and barks LOUDLY. This scares the pig (3) causing it to charge forward and because of the large amount of momentum created by the speed and weight of the pig it knocks the Anchor (4) overboard. The anchor is attached a piece of string, attached to the Treasure Hauling nets, pulling them up from the sea dragging all the booty into the Treasure Chest.



Edit: Fix the title/ font.

Edit 2: That white spot is showing you guys the inside of the chest and how its connected :D (just in case your like why is there a huge white square)

First Ever Pirate Alarm Clock


The oceans are a busy place during the day and pirates are subject to carry out their daily duties to earn their honest PoE. However, some pirates overwork themselves and have a hard time waking up the next morning due to soreness, laziness, or pride of ONE day's work that they don't wish to wake up. Fancy a rum-powered alarm clock?





Turn the tap to get a constant dripping (A) and position the rumjug directly under the dripping. As it fills, the fancy chest it's sitting on has a curved top, meaning the jug will have to fall off it to a side, pulling the string with it (B). The string will pull with more force through the mouth of the mounted tigerfish with extremely razor sharp teeth to snap the string (C). The powder bag attached to it will fall (D), hitting the teeter downwards (E). The other end of the teeter will come up to hit another where that one has a fuse on the end of it to ignite the guilded medium cannon, shooting the cannonball out the window (G). The cannon will then kick back (G) to tip over the captain's clock, where the clock's landing is right on top of the pedal to the spinning wheel (H). The force of impact will be great enough to turn the wheel with plenty of velocity, pulling the string attached to it (I). The string runs through the rigging pulley system to where it was attached to the other side of the hammock by running underneath it. The spinning wheel will pull and over turn the bed, sure enough to wake any slumbering pirate (J).

Nathalie's Inn Silencing Machine (Perfect for getting the attention of a potential buyer or seller of any YPP products!)

Ever get frustrated with all the other pirates shouting for attention when buying and selling wares at the inn? Want to have your voice heard to finally buy or sell what you need to? I have your solution! Try using this way instead of trying to shout over the constant noise of the inn!

Link: http://i1127.photobucket.com/albums/l624/nathalieonhunter/Picture7-1.png

Nathalie slams down on the scales (A)with her fist. The cannonball (B) on the other end of the scale shoots upward. The cannonball hits a bar shelf (C), and it tilts over. Various drinking mugs and chalices fall, along with a powder bag (D). The powder bag falls on a rumjug(E) and candle (F), causing an explosion. Nathalie now has the attention of all the pirates in the in sitting at various poker tables (G) in the Aim. Inn and proceeds to make her announcement.

Thank you,
Nathalie- Hunter Ocean

Edits: Picture sizing issues-- decided just to post a link.

- The great Party-Maker

- http://www.imagesup.de/bild-IMGjpg-102072-event.htm

- It`s twelve o`clock on the captain`s clock (first), so the bird (A) which is linked by a rope coil (B) with a bronze helm (C), so the helm rotates an pulls the lime (D) down on the candle (E) which stands on a fancy desk (F). The candle falls over and sets off the fuze from the gilded medium cannon (G), so that the medium cannon ball (H) flies to a gong (I).
At the same time the gilded medium cannon rolls back on the tail-end of the dog (J), so the dog runs to the upright rum barrel (K). The upright rum barrel falls over and if you sit down on the stool (L) at the carven table (M) you can open it and drink the rum in it. After this all friends of You (O) come an have a big party, so theres no more rum (N) at the end.

- captain`s clock; bronze helm; chest with crate o`limes; candles; fancy desk; gilded medium cannon; cannon balls; upright rum barrel; stool; carven barrel

Crosty's Old Invention

-http://www.flickr.com/photos/58363973@N05/5359296927/


-A)The pirate pushes the cannonball . B)The Small Cannonball goes on the scale . C) On the other-side of the scale there is a sleeping mouse that will wake up when he goes up with the scale . D)When the mouse wakes up he goes running and pushes the powder bag down.( This is on the other side if you see carefully there is a line between the mouse on the scale and the shelf ). E) Some of the powder in the powder bag falls right down in the cannon . F) So as you can imagine the cannon pops BOOM !

-Thanks =]

How to Get a Smelly Zombie Clean



(here is a link to a slightly larger version just in case:http://s810.photobucket.com/albums/zz25/Dazed_Illyana/Puzzle%20Pirates/?action=view&current=HPIM1088-1-1.jpg&t=1295206656658#!oZZ3QQcurrentZZhttp%3A%2F%2Fs810.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fzz25%2FDazed_Illyana%2FPuzzle%2520Pirates%2F%3Faction%3Dview%26current%3DHPIM1088.jpg
A. Rancid Fred, the zombie, is lured to a trough full of brain flavored pies. B. While Rancid Fred is eating the pies, the cat sitting atop the tap smells the catnip that is on the rope holding up the pirate flag and attacks it. C. Pirate flag falls and hits Rancid Fred, forcing him into D. the hammock, which he quickly loses his balance in and spins out of into E. the clawfoot tub filled with perfumed soapy water. Now Rancid Fred is known as Sweet-Smelling Fred and pirates will no longer run in horror from his rancid smell.

An unwanted automatic transfer



A The Monkey jumps from the top of the captain´s clock with full force on the large display case.
B The captain´s clock tilts to right.
C The captain´s clock takes the fancy wall lamp.
D The fancy wall lamp falls down and breaks into the yellow urn.
E The room is dark and the pirate can not see anything.
F The pirate attacks after his match and lights his gold candles.
G The gold candles burn and quickly develop a great heat.
H Above the gold candles on a shelf is an acidic liquid alchemy. The heat it comes to the overflow.
I The acid eats through the shelf. Since the shelf now has no more ground, the Jade monkey, standing on, crashes down.
J The Jade monkey falls exactly on the side of the Katana display and thus a Katana transported in a high arc through the window.
K A sloop anchored on the beach.
The Katana cut the rope and the sloop is on its way to an unwanted automatic transfer.

The Reason Black Clothes are so Expensive


Click for larger version

Parrot (A) on bird cage stand, eats seeds (B) from scales (C), making right scale lower, hitting yellow urn (D), which falls, tugging string (E) attached to rapier (F), which slices bag (G) open, causing octo' chow (H) to drop in the tank (I), which scares octopuses (J) into squirting ink. Water is filtered out of tank into dyer (K), and mouse (L) turns dyer handle to get cheese (M), thereby rolling cloth through dyer, making it black.

Meanwhile, those of us who would like black clothes but don't have the poes, wonder why they're so expensive.

Scales
Yellow Urn
Bag

Rube Goldberg Machine Blue Print!

Rube Goldberg Machine Blue Print!



We all know Azarbad the Great has some seriously ridiculous facial hair. I just can't help but look at it and want to chop it off. Its like he has four huge leaves of hair growing off his face - time for a make over!

A) A highly trained rat nibbles through the rope holding up the mounted sailfish.
B) The rope snaps and the back end of the mounted sailfish falls causing it to pivot and hit the first book on the shelf with its long nose.
C) The book hits the book next to it and they all fall over like dominos.
D) The final book knocks over the strategically placed bottle of beard control wax, spilling the contents onto Azarbad's beard as he is sleeping in his fancy bed!


Items used: Fancy bed, mounted sailfish, and books

I was going to do a color version in addition to the blue print with a few modifications (like the added globe), but I didn't have time to finish it - I figured I would show as much as I have done anyway :)

Re: [Entry Thread] A Rube Goldberg Piratey Art Contest! - win a parrot! [Ends Feb 1] Kork's Entry

Ye Olde Alarm Clock


<FULL SIZE>



The Captains clock (1) strikes 3:00, and the cuckoo appears! This scares the malacat (2) which knocks over the vase of flowers, which knocks over the books domino style.. which lands in a pile of coins. One coin falls off the table (3) and goes down the treasure drop board clink, clink, clink, clink, clink.. and out the bottom, waking up the piglet which is startled knocks into the pedestal, causing the gold candles to fall onto the gilded cannon (4) and firing a cannonball, which bounces off the drum (5) and hits the bird cage (6) causing the red/gold parrot to squawk, thus waking up the sleepy pirate (7) !




This was so much fun to enter!
If I win the parrot I will name him Rube Goldberg :D

Xtrauma's Monkey Distraction Machine!

Please click here and view the image larger, it looks much better :D



Those pesky Monkeys sailing the high sea's and stealing all of our fruit! Well its time pirates fight back, and with Xtrauma's Monkey Distraction Machine... you can!

(A) All you need is your friend to push over that good ol' drunken dock dweller, and... oh no! (B)He stumbles and his rum jug shakes the stacked rice barrels. (C)Therefore knocking over the candles (Which you must remember to attach with string!) and (D) then setting off the bronze cannon. (E)This sudden explosion sends the previously placed cannon-banana attached to your trusty fishing pole right infront of that good for nothing monkey! And voila, the monkey is in complete euphoria and you are free run away with as much fruit as your heart desires.

DRINK SERVING MACHINE
So! Here is my idea:

http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/5324/konkurspp.png

HOW IT WORKS:

The air pushes a super ultra great ballanced 1kg weight (A) and it falls on the scale (B) Put on a small chest (C). The scale pushes the canonball (D) That crashes in the bottle (E) pouring the drink into the mug (F). But the air also pushed the axe (G) that cut a lime (H). The parrot (I) takes the lime and puts it on the mug.
Used five furniture items

The Automatic Meal Cooker

Here is my invention:



http://tinypic.com/r/hsovhe/7

The very hungry pirate opens the door (A) and the bag (B) falls down off the door into pan of the scales (C). This causes that an apple from the bowl of fruit (D) is thrown in the air and lands on the katana display (E) on the table. The apple rolls off the katana display an hits the candles (F). The candles fall down and ignite the cord (G). The Cord burns down till the end and ignites the woodpick (H) and a nice fire is started in the potbelly stove (I). A bit later the pirates has a great meal. :D

I'm sorry my english is not that good :-/

ALARM CLOCK or How to wake up Oceanmaster

http://img97.imageshack.us/i/47425480.png/

Water fills in the sink (A). Rube Goldbird wakes up, from the noise of water. It sees that bird cage is open, then it sees grapes. Ruby Goldbird thinks no longer. He flies for them (C), because he really likes grapes. While Rube Goldbird eats grapes, he accidently push mugs. One mug fells down (D). The mug hits lime, and lime gets on to cat (E). Luckily, poor cat didn't got hurt, but he gets shock, so he jumps out of the bed and hits small chest (G).
Apollo's still resting his eyes..
Dog was sleeping in the chest, so he wakes up, sees the cat and starts to bark. Finally Apollo, with Dexla's knitting doll in hand, gets up.

Mosquitos from Malachite ocean.

Hope You like the picture! It's for OceanMasters.

Lto of the Sage Ocean.

The Dynamic Dozer Desister!
Ever had yer ship in th' middle of battle and yer Captain's dozing below decks? Well here is yer solution! The Dynamic Dozer Desister is now for sale! Here's how it works!

Cannon (A) is lit and fires, pushing Cannonball (B) over worn Planks (C) and causing them to dislodge and and hit the lower decks. Cannonball falls through trapdoor and is caught by lever (D), which lights Cannon 2's (E) Fuse and hits Bell (E2). Cannon 2 fires and pushes Cannonball pile (F) back through a hole in the floor and falls on lever 2 (G), lever 2's opposite end comes up through another hole and hits Bell 2 (H) and Bell 2 swings back and then forward, hitting Bell 3 (I), Bell 3 hits ball (J) and goes through Bells 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 (K) falling from the stand, hits Drum (L) and falls through Trapdoor 2.
It is then caught by lever 3 (M) which pulls up Catapult (N), throwing Cannonball 2 to Dye Barrel (O), knocking it on the Captain. Meanwhile Catapult hits Swordrack 1, which falls like dominoes on Swordracks 2, 3, and 4 (P), falling on and tipping over Candle (Q), which lights Rope (R), which burns slowly up to Candle 2 (S) which slowly burns through rope suspending Hammock (T) causing Hammock and Hammock occupant to fall to the deck. If two Cannons shooting, nine bells ringing, one drum booming, 4 swordracks falling, one Dye barrel spilling on them, and them falling on the Deck doesn't wake them up- I'm afraid nothing will.

A machine that loads a cannon!




And this is how it works:

You pull the rope down, making the platform containing the sand get inclined, which will make the sand fall and end in the plate. The sand falls in the plate, making it get heavier, which will make it go down, pulling the rope. This will make the candle turn in 90º to the right. The fire burns and cuts the rope that is holding the cannonball. This will make the cannonball fall. As this happens, the rope will be pulled, lifting the piece of wood that holds the water. Once the piece of wood is lifted, the water will make spin the next mechanism to the right. This will spin the ship’s wheel too, which will make the platform move. This movement will make the little ball fall into the spiral. The ball goes out fast, and hits the cannonball, making everything fall into the cannon. The cannon is now loaded, and ready to be fired.

The 3 pieces of furniture used:
- Cannon balls
- Ship's wheel
- Powder bag.
