Come Help Bipolar Defend Cleopatra's Pearls

Bipolar be Defendin' Cleopatra's Pearls

Island: Cleopatra's Pearls
Date: Saturday, November 13, 2010
Time: Noon Pirate Time
Pay: Capped at 500 per segment
Contacts: Bipolar and Bipolarjc
Sinking: No. Both sides want t' save ships fer later.

----------------------------------------------------------------
The Ballad o' Cleo's <----- This be a link. Ye can click on it t' hear the song. Subtle and elegant use o' hypertext, aye?

As I were sailin' o-ver the Pearl Archepelaaaago,
I spotted Captain Xule and he had a bonny cargo.
I first produced me cannons and then produced me saber.
Said, "Stand and deliver or else Hades, he may take yer."
Musha ring damadam dama-darrrr
Whack fer me daddy-o
Whack fer me daddy-o
There be whisky in the jar.

I took all his money, and I took all his mangos.
I took all his iron, and I brought it home to Cleo's.
I thought the island lubbed me and always would be true,
But hidin' in the harbor was the fleet o' Captain Xule.
Musha ring damadam dama-darrrr
Whack fer me daddy-o
Whack fer me daddy-o
There be whisky in the jar.

Drunken and weary, to the frigate's helm I staggered.
Cleopatra's blockade board was full o' Boochin' Blaggards.
And there was Captain Xule. His gun he was a-mannin'.
He said, "I want my iron back" so I fired all eight cannons.
Musha ring damadam dama-darrrr
Whack fer me daddy-o
Whack fer me daddy-o
There be whisky in the jar.

So come all ye carpenters, ye riggers, and ye sailors.
Come all ye bilgers, G. M. or better gunners.
Come to Cleopatra's, and fight the Boochin' Horde.
Job with Bipolar and we'll drive 'em off the board!
Musha ring damadam dama-darrrr
Whack fer me daddy-o
Whack fer me daddy-o
There be whisky in the jar!

Musha ring damadam dama-dar
Musha ring damadam dama-dar
Musha ring damadam dama-darrrr.

Squiddy, postin' fer Bipolar, the singin' flag

Re: Come Help Bipolar Defend Cleopatra's Pearls

Awesome stuff Squiddy, I found myself singing along (the Thin Lizzy version of course).

Looking forward to some boomy fun, good luck to both sides.

Re: Come Help Bipolar Defend Cleopatra's Pearls

As usual, we'll be having a raffle. Here's what will be up for grabs:

Autumn sloop - Harrowed Ling
Phantom sloop - moaning bream
Sloop - creative sprat
Rogue sloop design
October furniture: 2 tombstones + gibbet + pile of bones
November furniture: 2 haystacks, 2 bushel of Apples, pie, cornucopia, feast
CI furniture: CI spears + fancy spears
Pirate flag
Ship's bell
Blue/blue scimitar
Coupon for full outfit

Like last time, we won't be selling tickets. At the end of the blockade, we'll choose 11 winners from among the people who jobbed for us. Being planked for lazing and/or booching continually is grounds for disqualification.

Re: Come Help Bipolar Defend Cleopatra's Pearls

Many thanks to everyone who came out to help us! Without you, nothing happens, and we know it!

Most of the ships I drove today performed amazingly well - and that's 100% thanks to stellar puzzling! I can't express enough how grateful I am for the chance to take the helm on a ship where I know I have talent like that supporting me.

And thanks to the eyepatch brigade - I know I *really* kept you busy in round 2. [For those not on the ship, on one of the brigs I drove, all our gunners had eyepatch injuries. Talk about hardcore!]

Thanks also to Booching Blaggards for making such a strong showing. We went into this unsure what the outcome would be - and until the very end of round 2, the outcome was still very much up in the air in my mind. That's the best kind of blockade, where you really don't know how it will turn out, and where it could easily go either way. It was a pleasure to play blockade with you, and I hope all of you had as much fun as we did!

Aye that we did Don. Grats on your succesful defence, was an awesome 1st 2 rounds and thanks to you and your team for making it so.

I'd also like to echo Don's thanks to the jobbers on both sides - Ye all rocked it. Keep turning up and we'll keep on Blockading. Who knows, maybe one day we'll even win one :-)

Re: Come Help Bipolar Defend Cleopatra's Pearls

Congrats on a successful defense Bipolar! I hated that I had to miss the bloc...seems like all the ones I miss are usually the ones I wished I could have been there for the most!
