Midnight Madness



T'was the weekend before Christmas, when all through the ocean
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
Or so they thought...
They came from the shadows where they had planned with great care.
They brought with them those who were long dead
And allied with whom we did not dare.
Once the dust has settled everything was gone.

We hoped for quick retaliation but alas the God's above would not allow it.
So we were forced into the shadow's, into the ruins of our Empire of old.
There we planned our revenge and it was long before the madness crept in.

"Ive Got It!" Announced a red looking shadow.
"We will hit everything! EVERYTHING! But we can't do it alone. We must drag others into our madness."

And so it began.
Messages were dropped into bottles.
Plans were given to carrier parrots.
Monkeys flung secret scripts.
It wasn't long before the madness had taken over more and more monarch's and royals.
"It will never work!" some screamed
"Brilliant just brilliant!" others proclaimed
While some worried "Islands will fall into the wrong hands, inexperienced hands."

All their concerns were addressed.
"We will never know until we try."
"Who cares if it doesn't work, it will be so much fun!"
"Everyone needs to start somewhere."
"Maybe some smaller flags will win!"

And so one by one they gave into the madness and pledge their support.
Some will drop.
Others will job.

But most important thing of all, they all pledge to enjoy the madness.

Re: Midnight Madness

I should probably explain everything :)

Basically after we (DI) lost all our islands to Bipolar we were rather disappointed and unhappy.
I think everyone expected us to strike back, but to me that seemed boring and predictable.
So after a few days I had this idea where everyone should just blockade everything. It made me smile, so I passed it on to the rest of the royals and they liked the idea as well, so I ran with it.
Over the next couple of weeks we talked to our allies and shared our idea, some were keen, some not so much.
The original plan was to focus more on BP & TO islands (simply because between them they had 14? islands) but the flags that wanted to get involved seemed interested in dropping on other flags. So we figured the hell with it, lets push complete madness, throw alliances out the window for a weekend get everyone to drop everywhere and see what happens.

We knew that there was no way the ocean could support so many blockades, and thus figured that they would either turn into small boat blockades (which are super fun!) or islands would go undefended.
But either way we wanted to encourage smaller flags to blockade, if only to get a feel for the process. In my opinion, the only way this ocean can grow or at least stay the current size is if people feel they can move up; which for most means blockading. And this just seemed like a good way to allow smaller flags a chance to go up against the big boys and girls without need a HUGE boat army and massive stock piles of poe.

Anyways .... the plan didn't go off exactly as I hoped it would (something this big its hard to pull off perfectly).
We were hoping that more flags would drop and more variety of flags would be dropped on (this really wasn't meant to be a huge attack on Bipolar). And thus we do encourage anyone and everyone to drop this weekend! Even if it's later in the day or on Sunday, we just want madness!! :)

We just wanted to have some crazy,stupid fun! Do something that has never been done before, create some chaos and see what happens.

So, I'd just like to say Good Luck to all the flags involved.
And Thank Ye to all those I've been in contact with over the past couple of weeks who made this all come together.
We hope that everyone (attackers, defenders, jobbers) have a great time!

Good Luck to everyone! And whatever happens, happens!

Re: Midnight Madness

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Sorry to hear about the fame problems with the Tigers, but looking forward to a very fun, and busy, day. :)

Re: Midnight Madness

Id like to add that if we manage to win Eta back we will most likely rebuild the Explorer's Hall since the new Viking Expeditions seem to be much more interesting and user friendly (they don't have bnav so should appeal to more variety of pirates)

Re: Midnight Madness

Old Squiddy would like t' thank Burning Vengance fer 3 fierce rounds at Jorvik. (Sorry about the 2 point-sitters; we were busy.) Ev'ry round had us thinkin' we would lose, and round 2 even went into sudden death overtime. Burning Vengance certainly gave us all we could handle, and those of us who were lucky enough t' fight at Jorvik saw rounds that we will remember fer a long time.

Thankee all hands on both sides fer a great day.

--Squiddy, navver fer Bipolar

The above quote and Voidrix's avatar have made it impossible for me to ever view a toothbrush in the same way again, and if i have nightmares of little voidrix trying to stab me with a toothbrush i will not be happy :P

Seriously though a great day, thanks for all the madness.
