This Week In Blockades Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

By popular request, this experimental sticky thread exists to inform the puzzled pirate population of blockades happening this weekend.

Posts should include:

    *Island Name, Ocean, Sinking vs. Non-Sinking
    *Time and Date of the blockade
    *Your flag's name, and whether you're attacking or defending
    *A link to your intent post, artwork, etc. in your home ocean's parley forum
    *How much you're paying
    *Jobbing contacts (if relevant)

Please do not include your actual blockade artwork or full intent post. If you are offering additional jobbing perks such as raffle prizes, trivia, etc. Please include that in your pay line like "500 per segment + Raffle" and link to the prize list. Keep commentary out of this thread and save it for the actual intent thread. Posts that don't follow the rules will be purged. Happy Blockading!

<placeholder for past blockades, just in case>

(In an attempt to keep this thread current, my current thought is to consolidate and archive past blockades into one post so that the bulk of the thread truly reflects only the upcoming weekend's blockades. But we'll see if that makes sense or if there's a better alternative.)

I'm not here to post about any blockades, but may I request that people edit their posts and record the scores? This makes it easier to find out who won when editing the wiki, or simply if you lack the time to log on.

Thanks.

What Pip tried to do was something totally unprecedent. He, in some strange way, used Midnight as a test server, without him even knowing. [Crap, it sucks I was not online when he did that :'(... pfft, anyways]

How the dream was born.

Imagine the scene:
3 pirates, one of Mala's famous sandy beaches some rum (for a change).

The subject of conversation:
What can we get for our captains birthday, a pet, a fam, a personalised sloop? How about an island. Who wouldn't love their very own island?

2 days later the news was out - 3 medium island openings for Malachite! It must be fate. Or should I say Our Destiny . - The dream was born.

The whole crew's efforts were bent on that one objective: - Get an island for our much loved captain.
The distillers distilled, the Shipbuilders built ships, the weavers weaved sail cloth, the iron mongers made cb's. Commodities were shipped from one end of the ocean to the other. Every last poe was saved up. Friends were recruited from across the oceans to help with the cause.

Originally the dream was a bigger island, SY, IM, Dis, Townhouse or maybe a cottage. But for all the friendship and love surrounding our captain that dream was just not within our grasp.

However with the bigger flags positioning for the mediums maybe an outpost would be possible - not that anyone's gonna walk away from a hard won island.

Now the stage is set - the fleet is born, friends have been drafted in to help run the cade - everyone's poured as much love and poe into the dream as they can.

We have done all we can, but know that poe, fleet, cade team and love isn't enough - it's the front-line workers that will help us win, so we need just one more thing: Jobbers?

Some Jobbers follow their flag,
_____________Some will follow their pocket,
__________________________Some will follow their heart.

What will you do? - the choice is yours

What is Written - for the love of Cleopatra

Hooked - defending their outpost


Good luck to Hooked. Let it be fun.

/me goes back to chanting her mantra

its only a game, its only a game, its only a game.

Hi there from your cousins on the Midnight Ocean !

We just thought we'd let ye know an exciting event that will be happening tomorrow.

BKs have invaded Midnight, taking over 5 islands, and this has led to a 3-way Blockade!

Tomorrow, at Beta Island, Water Sleeps will be taking on Anchor Management and the Brigand Kings, The All-Consuming Flame in a 3-way blockade! We are hoping to see ye come out and support this great and exciting blockade. With your help and support, we can boost jobbers and make this one of the most memorable blockades of all time!

As I am from Water Sleeps, It would be great for ye to job for us (/e winks) but as long as ye come support the Midnight Ocean, then we are happy!

The blockade starts at 11am pirate time tomorrow.

The Water Sleeps jobbing details are:

Tiggerbeme and Yorkiepup are the jobbing contacts
Pay is 200 poe a segment
Jobbing starts at 10:30am with the action starting at 11 am

Thank ye, and hope to see ye tomorrow!
