Verlasco - spanish for crow or raven.

Norse Mythology - 2 ravens flew all over the world bringing back new information.

Chaldean Mythology - a dove and a raven are released to find new land, the dove circles and returns, the raven does not - its assumed the raven did find new land.

So assuming he's the raven maybe he went to find new land, possibly found it and never got back....so maybe we have to help him come back? After his cocky attitude I don't want to, but whatevs.

Maybe by interoceanic they mean like Atlantic and Arctic. Yes, I'm fully aware that PP isn't set in the real world, however, the Arctic ocean is pretty cold.

The bandana in the thread appears to me to be more generic. He believes it to be currency because he is an explorer not specifically a pirate. So they are treating him as a greenie to this new ocean.

If I were to throw in my opinion of it. It appears as though it may not be an ocean merger because he specifically talks about between the two oceans and Opal and Jade were included. So I will guess to venture this is a new pillage route leading to what is a new ocean within current oceans possibly? Viridian is nearing the edges of its borders for new island expansion. Maybe they're spicing things up by adding new archipelago groupings to all the oceans? That would add new harder difficulty routes with possibilities of chests and such. No Idea tho.

It might as well just be a brand new ocean that everyone can sail to and we dump all the old ones. I've really no idea. But i dont' see there being a hidden puzzle involved if they're including Opal and Jade. Just seems to confusing to try and hide a puzzle within multiple languages by only bolding certain words that are all spelled differently and may not translate exactly.

One thing I can for sure say though is that it appears like they're treating Velasco as a newb. And has anyone considered the idea that we aren't sailing to Velasco that he sailed to us?

It perhaps may be a competition to rescue him, to kick things off , then inter-ocean travel will happen after the competition. Similar to how they kick off the opening of Atlantis.

Also I was wondering if anything else can be siginificant in the numbers, number of snowflakes, dates, etc. I was trying to see if it would add up to the number of total islands but that didnt go as I thought it would.

I noticed there is a pirate named vthorsson. At first I thought it was someone making the pirate to mess with us but I check the other oceans and there is a pirate with the same name logged off at the same time. Coincidence?

The description is of some kind of arduous inter-ocean region where we can transfer between oceans. That would be awesome, but possibly too awesome for OOO to have pulled off. It could also be a trailer for a Brynhild themed SMH.

Edit: Vthorsson logged off Mala at 8/12 01:15, which I think is 7/12 15:15 game time. I think that is because you need a game account for a forum account and OOO's script creates the pirate of that name on all oceans to avoid someone else taking it.

After rereading the wording in the recent post by Velasco it appears to be more as though he were sailing into our ocean from where ever he came from. That we haven't encountered him directly yet he only had dealings with the navy and he was given a bandana as a newb. We are going to get an exchange of the opening of the way to sail to where he came from in exchange for helping him get back home. I also think the ideas of inbreeding and cannibalism could refer to our oceans cultists or some of the brigand kings.

Whether or not this is determined to be a new Expedition, Sea Monster hunt, Ocean Merger or some sort of Puzzle Pirates Adventures Im not sure. That's where I get a bit fuzzy in what it could be. He mentions specifically it being an "interoceanic passageway" and being able "to sail directly." But I don't know what type of ocean he would be referring to whether its a new ocean, an ocean within current oceans, or an ocean merger is unclear. I need more information relating to where Velasco is trying to get to determine the rest but I feel confident that so far he is in our ocean and trying to get home thus how we discover the passage way for ourselves. Maybe they're adding heating oil to something we product at apoths or distils thats required for the expedition or SMH? no idea.... Next post please!! :D

At the same time, Ravens are considered a symbol of death.

I don't even want to think of that and its effect on the game....

WE'RE GOING TO CANADA?!

I don't agree with an inter-ocean travel, at all. It would collapse the markets and could easily be abused to transfer goods from ocean to ocean. Also considering the servers (IIRC) aren't exactly connected at the moment, this isn't really possible. A group server where vessels from multiple oceans can enter but not plunder each other could be plausible, but at the same time, a new SMH featuring one or more BK's seems most likely. (Please not Atlantis 3.0).

Guess we'll have to wait a few more days to have sufficient clues to make reasonable conclusions. (If we don't recall, none of the previous puzzles have been solved quickly, they required clues that were released in game, as well as those through the spyglass).

Okies my assumption is :
In the post the explorer metioned he was certain there was a passage between oceans not islands, and he called it a interoceanic passage which means again it's not among islands in the same ocean.

And when he found that passage , he was out of his "home ocean" into another one. So that mean probably when sailing into certain places from your home ocean you will maybe find yourself somewhere else with different surroundings and you will be able to explore it yourself or/with your jobbers.

It's not necessarily a different ocean like from Sage to Hunter , maybe a small ocean made specifically for this update with things that are different to the regular oceans which pirates can explore.That's just what i think :p

I am a 5 year guy. I've seen dub prices at 600 poe and I've seen them at 3k. Played on 3 free oceans and personally.. i feel this is a great idea. I think the biggest winners in this merger is huntarians and malachites. more voyages for each of them. the only inconvenience i truly see is the fact stats/pirates cant be merged into one.
However I think OOO needs to spread their marketing to new places. it would be nice to see 2-3k people on one ocean at any given time and upwards of 5k when cades happen.

Emerald for hunter is a good idea.. but emerald is still a color.. so blue colors make no sense. malachite is a very very small ocean so virid should keep its name.. which is how I voted.

This merger idea has got to be the best thing OOO has listened to players say, ever.
