Details:
Tours: Missing some islands on yer personal world map? Most of Sapphire arch is uninhabited, and can't be reached by ferries. Sapphire is in the northeast corner of Midnight, and has the following islands: Beta, Remora, Horseshoe Crabs, Verdant Atoll, Uxmal, Iris, Vernal Equinox. If ye have never set foot on one or more of these, then go on one of our tours! Jobber contacts will be posted to this thread a day or two afore the event, and the time schedule confirmed. Ye send a tell to the jobber contact, which gets ye to a ship at Beta. The tour guide then whisks to each island in turn and stands on a boat there fer a few minutes so ye can hop to the boat and then step onto the island and look around.

Do-It-Yerself Tours: If ye can't be there fer the tour times, but ye do have a flask of whisk potions, ask to be jobbed to the Greedy Piranha. There will be somebody available to do this during each of the two-hour "memorization services" periods, and frequently somebody available at other times. While on the Greedy Piranha, check yer world map, then whisk to an island that ye haven't been to yet (all the Sapphire ones will show, as well as any other islands that we have maps to). Ask over crew chat if ye don't see the Greedy Piranha at the docks, so somebody can stand on it fer ye to get back to do the next island.

Foraging: If ye have never had a chance to forage afore, ye have permission to try to forage while on one of our boats, but please be aware that it uses up one hour of yer stall working labor each time ye click "Forage", and we won't be paying ye fer fruit or gems. If ye get gold, holler and we will pay ye 20K fer it (and then we have to ship it to Beta).

Memorization services: We will have several services available to assist those trying to mem routes in Sapphire. Tis best if ye are jobbed to Otherwhen while ye mem, to make it easier fer yer request to get to the right person.

1. Charting of standard routes: job one of our charters (whoever is online) to yer boat while it is at a league point and not in battle. We chart yer boat, then hop off and ye replace the bot that we kicked off and continue. All three of us have all standard routes in Sapphire memmed, plus the Remora-Papaya and Remora-Byrne. (we are working on the obsolete ones, but can't promise they will be available fer ye)

2. Restocking: Rum and shot will be available at each of the islands in Sapphire - even the uninhabited ones! Ask fer the number of rum and small cannonballs ye need, and we will transfer by pirate name to ye after ye /pay fer them. Beta and Remora sell rum and shot dockside. We will have ships with rum fer 60 poe each and shot fer 20 poe each at all islands in Sapphire (no matter what the current dockside prices are).

3. Charts fer sale/lease: A limited number of Sapphire charts will be available fer sale at the following prices. After ye finish memming the route, we will buy it back at the same prices (only if ye bought it from us).
Remora-Byrne, Remora-Papaya: 750 new, 500 good, 250 old
Sapphire routes not including Beta: 600 new, 400 good, 200 old
Beta-Iris: 94 new from shipyard, 50 good, 25 old
Beta-Remora: 76 new from shipyard, 40 good, 20 old
Beta-Verdant Atoll: 63 new from shipyard, 40 good, 20 old

Please also mark yer calendars fer Feb 4th and 5th when Rexelita's Memorizing Midnight Event offers memorization help with any route in Midnight, including the extinct ones.

Yet another event sponsored by Water Sleeps, proud owners of the island of Beta since Oct 2004. Captains, if ye are looking fer a fun, active flag fer yer crew, please consider Water Sleeps.

I heartily endorse this product and/or service.

Looking forward to this, and the memorisation event. Now if only we could turn the brigands off, just for a little while.....

1. Charting of standard routes: job Tseetum, Lordkalvan, or Sassysasha (whoever is online) to yer boat while it is at a league point and not in battle. We chart yer boat, then hop off and ye replace the bot that we kicked off and continue. All three of us have all standard routes in Sapphire memmed, plus the Remora-Papaya and Remora-Byrne. (we are working on the obsolete ones, but can't promise they will be available fer ye)


We are collecting more volunteers who can chart. The current list is:
Hightop
Lordkalvan
Sassysasha
Sleder
Tseetum

(if we get a few more, mebbe we can add another tour and another block of mem services to the schedule)

First post has been edited. Times fer first tour and first memorization services were changed.

We have a large handful of volunteers available; the primary contact people are the ones listed in original post now. If ye don't see that person, ask any Otherwhen officer to job ye, then ask over crew chat. Lordkalvan, Sassysasha, Vevetpearl, Irelay, Hightop, Jacine, Tseetum, Dragonburn, and Outlawjack will be taking turns assisting people. Guest charters (not in Otherwhen) include Lari, Moonjoon, and Sleder.

Re: [Midnight] Put Sapphire on yer Map! | Sat | 2006.1.28 | 5am-9pm

The last ship has been moved into place, with rum and shot available fer anybody who runs low while memming (or pillaging fer that matter).

The islands will be visited in this order:
Initial jobbing to GF Greedy Piranha on Beta.

Remora: WF Unstable Blowfish
Horseshoe Crabs: WB Dill Pickerel
Verdant Atoll: WF Hard-working Stickleback
Uxmal: WB Queen Anne's Revenge
Vernal Equinox: MB Proper Shad
Iris: WB Happy Clownfish
Beta: GF Greedy Piranha

/me hopes that nobody else gets an RL crisis; that contact list has been changed way too many times this week already.... if the person listed as contact isn't online, please look fer any Otherwhen Senior Officer (we will be covering fer each other in event of emergency).
