Cnossos Intent Thread



Where: Cnossos
When: Saturday 16 October, 12 noon pirate time
Jobbing Contacts: Lilredhen and Lyzzi
Pay: starting at 750 per seg
Raffle: Instant prizes will be given out during the blockade*
Sinking: Not up to us but bring it on!

Why: Because we love blockades. Because we like the idea of owning Cnossos.

Intent for island: We have no intentions of building anything new. We do intend to improve the island in anyway that is in our power. Once we own the island we will open discussions with the OMs with a view to adding more trees and scene charms if we can. Any beautification will be be done with the best of intentions to make Cnossos a better place.

*Instant raffle draws are taken at random intervals during the blockade. Winners are announced immediately and collect their prizes next time they on a ship loading. To qualify for the instant raffle you have to be on a ship in the blockade and at a station. Anyone jobbed in but not working will be ignored. Gunners are included as I check with the XO before moving to the next pirate on the list.

Edit: Forgot to credit Alniyat for the fantastic artwork

Re: Cnossos Intent Thread

Given the history of the Cnossos Restoration Project, will DI pledge to not build any new buildings on the island during their governorship except to replace buildings that dust?

Re: Cnossos Intent Thread

Thanks Red, but that's a statement of present intention, rather than a promise to maintain that policy during the course of governorship. Can I take it from your answer that DI is indeed promising not to build buildings on the island?

Yes. We know the history of Cnossos very well. One of the pirates that organized the whole thing is in our flag and a very good hearty (although mostly inactive these days) so we have no intention of ruining his hard work, or that of everyone else that was involved.

But like Lyz said, we are looking into making the island a little more pretty (Trees, Plants, Charms, etc...) We would love to give more info on exactly what we plan to do, but we really can't until we sit down with an OM to find out what is possible.

Re: Cnossos Intent Thread

Defense intent is on the way, but in the mean time, Cold Steel will be defending the island. We look forward to seeing everyone there.

Re: Cnossos Intent Thread

 
Once we own the island we will open discussions with the OMs with a view to adding more trees and scene charms if we can.

If I remember correctly, it is something like $1 million for one tree. Have fun with that false promise. I'm a tard. Ignore this.


Regardless, I'm looking forward to a good blockade tomorrow.

P.S. We were having orgies? When and why did I miss this?

Might I suggest the next time you accuse someone of making false promises you do your research first?

Why should I when I can make you do the work for me? /me fans tart flames.

I apologize for being wrong on the price. I realized later after I had walked away for dinner plans that I remembered the $1 million from the total cost someone had for their plan of putting in trees. I tried to find it in the forums, but I came up with too much other junk from 2005 about Cnossos for anything worthwhile.

Re: Cnossos Intent Thread

As promised, instant raffles were drawn during the blockade. The winners were:

Pixieace - Sloop - Collected
Beforehechea - Frost sloop - Collected
Rachet - Sloop - Collected
Psychotic - Frost sloop - Collected
Fernet - Sloop - Collected
Chayo - Frost sloop -
Jailbreaker - Phantom sloop - Collected
Loralai - Sloop - Collected
Bladedragon - Sloop - Collected
Gabranth - Sloop -
Kea - Cutter - Collected

Two prizes are still to be collected and I will keep them available until the end of the month. After that, they will be in the prize pool for the next block. The named pirates need to find me on Midnight to claim.

Congrats to Cold Steel for a great fight and many, many thanks to all the awesome jobbers that puzzled for us. Blockades would not be possible without your support.
