Don't Tread on Me Yarr!!!



The merchants of Papaya suffer at the over taxation of Tyr's Own

The Sunset Knights have heard the cries of the merchants and the woe's of taxation. The cries for possibly loosing shops to the evil greed of Governess SweetiePiepi.

Once governess is sent packing back to the JetOpal arch where she belongs I will lower taxes to 0 percent for the first week to allow all shops to recover losses. I will also help any that have lost their shop recover lost shops as best I can.

We shall show those who feel the suffering of others is enjoyable the price it costs for such actions.

Pay will be 200 POE per segment to keep with the spirit of the event. Let us show the insolent that such actions are not to be tolerated.

_________________________________________________

Come join this event it will be scheduled for this Sunday august 29th roughly 2-3pm eastern. It should be entertaining, thanks for all that set it up contributed to it to get it rolling.

See you all there

Re: Don't Tread on Me Yarr!!!

I know a couple island-holding flags in Jet who would probably dispute that Sweetie or anyone from TO "belongs" there.

Also, pending getting out of work something close to on time, I intend to be there for later rounds.

Re: Don't Tread on Me Yarr!!!

All I understand from the OP's post is: Tyr's Own should blockade something in Jet.

Maybe it's just me...

Oh, yeah, and someone coming to blockade us. YAY!

The idea that different archipelagos are actually distinct locations is pretty funny to me.

Re: Don't Tread on Me Yarr!!!

*giggles* I suspect Crimson Tide will have something to say about that assertion too.

In the meantime, though - YAY BLOCKADE!

Re: Don't Tread on Me Yarr!!!

I am aiming for this Sunday between 2-3 pm in the afternoon Eastern time.

I am having more trouble then i thought getting my flag fame up though a lot of crewbies are starting to come off summer vacation. I will know by later tonight if i have to push it back a week or not.


I have a 50k Raffle posted in the events any that wish to help my flag fame rise please let me know. I will be on most of the day except between 5-6 pm Eastern.

Re: Don't Tread on Me Yarr!!!

I'm unsure about the exact mechanics, but if you had a few hearties that brought their entire crew over to your flag for say...1 day, that should give you the required fame to drop the war chest. Then they could just head back to their own flags after. Just my thoughts.

Re: Don't Tread on Me Yarr!!!

I'd also like to know what else you plan to do with the island, other than lower the taxes. Only asking because all this good PR could be quickly overshadowed if your flag did something stupid, like Burning Bagofpoo.

Re: Don't Tread on Me Yarr!!!

I have no intentions of building anything on the island for now until i get a feel for it. I would like to build a flag hall building on it but that was just a thought and if it had the room. I really had not had the time to look at the island to see what space is available as i had no immediate intentions of building anything. Only to save the merchants from their whoa's

I would understand if a flag hall was made so crews/flags that call Papaya their home could get a house, but anything more than that might cause some forum tarting to start.

Sadly, Papaya doesn't have the room to build one, without nerfing commodities, which I'm not willing to do.

As far as I know, no buildings have dusted since then, so the situation should still be the same.

Re: Don't Tread on Me Yarr!!!

When 1000 PoE per round be considered merely a token sum to reward people who come to blockade "on principle", it makes Old Squiddy feel sorry fer any small-time flags who be savin' up so they can join the blockade game.

Tyr's Own is blockading another Jet island? Sweet!

Also, what day/time is the blockade? I searched the OP several times and can't find it.


Hmm, Jet, you say? How about noon Sunday, at Lagniappe?
