Papaya (without the spinach) Defense Intent!




Once upon a time, there were several crews of pirates who happened upon a magical land called Avon and set into port to refresh their supplies of rum and rations. In this new land they met a strange king and his close friends.

The king and his friends (who he called 'Nights' even if it was properly day outside) taught the pirates a thing or two about drinking (who knew there was more to life than rum, grog, and swill!) and also of camaraderie.

Now, camaraderie was a new concept to these pirates. With their minds opened by copious amounts of beer and ale, they learned that, if they put their minds to it, they could succeed together in the face of, what was before, insurmountable odds.

They spent many nights with the 'Nights' and their king, and it was a bittersweet goodbye when the time to sail came. Their last night in Avon, the great Captains and Monarchs of this unlikely band of savages all met together in secret and had a good talk about the strange customs of Avon.

They agreed that the new concept of Working Together seemed to work very well for Avon and it's king. They knew a storm was brewing on their own ocean, and decided that night to make a pact. Each of them swore to help the others defend their territory, giving a go to the idea of Teamwork In The Face Of Adversity.

****

Many months passed, and they watched quietly as the storm came closer and closer to each of their sovereign shores. They held their collective breaths as one, waiting to see for whom the hammer would fall first.

At last, it fell...

Re: Papaya (without the spinach) Defense Intent!

Camelot is the working name for a confederation of flags on the Midnight Ocean that have banded together to stop - all - tyranny on this ocean, from whatever source. ONE flag cannot stand alone against the might and power of some of the so-called old guard or "power" flags .. but a pack of smaller flags CAN band together and not only survive, but WIN.

This is my goal, and the goal of all like minded people on the ocean. This has indeed made me, and my flag, targets, which I not only expected, but welcome.

Some of the old players - even whole flags - have retired with grace and dignity, and while I miss many of them, I applaud their integrity. Others have grown "bored" with our beloved Midnight Ocean, and have decided it is up to them to stop the REST of the people - paying and otherwise - from being able to enjoy the game. This reminds me most of a playground bully who not only breaks a toy he is tired of, but stands over the bits so no one else can repair it, let alone play with it.

ENOUGH! It is PAST time to remove the bullies from our playground. Forget, for a while at least, any old animosities, and work with Camelot to stop the destruction that is Ragnarok.

In olden days, there was no pay for blockades, people came out of loyalty or friendship. Those days are gone, but I hope the feelings are not. In the SPIRIT of those days, I will not engage in pay wars with any flag. If POE is more important to anyone than keeping tyranny from ruling - indeed, DESTROYING - our beloved Midnight Ocean, by all means, encourage a pay war, and follow the POE. You will reap what you sow.

I don't understand this. I don't see how TO is stopping people from playing. If you like blockading then you get to play in blockades. Yay. If you don't like blockades then island ownership isn't for you.

Re: Papaya (without the spinach) Defense Intent!

This was Papaya, so I gotta ask:

How many sinkies? How big the glub glub?

Non sinking? Papaya??

That's an insult to all the old timers. I say we should band together and take it, forcing all future blockades to be glubby glub.
