Midas Frigs on Midnight

Hoy hoy, Mateys!

I've been workin hard this month, makin' a few o' the new Midas Frigs fer me mates on the Midnight ocean. (Well, actually, I been drinkin rum mostly, but the botes are on their way.)

One day me rum-soaked head was thinkin what a fine thing it would be if there were a list o' all the Midas Frigs out there. I can't remember exactly why I thought that was such a gud idea, but then it hit me that mebbe there'd be some collectors who would want to know. Or mebbe just like someone wants to know where all teh lime dye is, well we can has dis info too.

So, toward that goal, I'm listing here the Midas's that roll off the docks at Ships for Ewe. So far we have 2 finished and 4 in the queue --

Please feel free to reply to this post if ye own one of these fine vessels, and I'll list it here (if ye wish to remain anonymouos ye can PM me with the info). Or if yer a shopkeeper who produced them, let me know how many and i'll put that up here so we have a count. (Tho I doubt peeps will mind a mention here, I'm not posting owner's names without permission first.) Or find me in game or PM me, and I'll update the info.
Please don't post in this thread if yer looking to buy or sell a Midas, use the dedicated thread fer that.

So I take it you will be glub glubbing it on the weekend to "test" if statistically you have more chance of gaining an injury off one, or to see if it has a special sinking animation? :P

You're a cruel, cruel man.

Truth be told, this is the first time I've ever locked a ship to Personal Use out of concern that someone might accidentally delete the props. Even my regular grand frigate is set for Crew Use.

I just delivered mine; the name is Upscale Clownfish. Cracks me up.

(There are three more of them in the queue at my shipyard, but I haven't yet obtained permission to post the names of the owners-to-be.)

Re: Midas Frigs on Midnight

The Costly Mackerel is mine (from Helsingkor).

If someone gets an Eel, I'd probably be forced to trade though :-)

Cruel would be somebody actually inadvertently sinking one and having an exceptionally high number of pirates obtaining injuries through the joys of the random number generator gods, and then watching other people to attempt to replicate...

Absolutely hilarious would be if they coded it so that every prime number sinking gave injuries to all, and all others reduced your chance of ever obtaining an injury by half...

Re: Midas Frigs on Midnight

An interesting experiment. Had I been able to afford one I would most definitely try it (I would sink each and every one I had! Honest!).

But since I am Midasless I will enthusiastically cheer at ye brave souls! Go go go! :P

Re: Midas Frigs on Midnight

I got the Precious Ling today. If anyone has a Shiny adjective and would like to trade I would be interested.

Re: Midas Frigs on Midnight

I'm the proud owner of the Shiny Hagfish but unfortunately I'm an angelfish collector so I'd be willing to trade for one if someone is unfortunate enough to get one that they don't want. ;)

Re: Midas Frigs on Midnight

Update on this:

Poor Tench - spotted on Beta dock (no info on owner) (Poor Tench?! -- rename? I think it must be.)
-----Hmmmmm... It was pointed out to me that there are other Poor Tench's on the ocean, and ye can't rename to an existing name. Must have been delivered pre-special name update? An interesting coincidence to catch the name Poor...


It's owned by Harrjm and was delivered before the update that gave the ships the special name, mystery solved. Oh, and as it turned out it was a very interesting name for a ship like that. :)
