29th December Terra Blockade Event (561K to be won - at the very least!)

This is basically a Treasure Haul event. A Stone Soup sloop - the best kind of sloop? - carrying PoE (at least 561K!) will come onto the board and be sunk. Then, the PoE will be hauled - hauled old school!

Okay, but when is this happening?

Okay, calm down.

Sorry, I'm calm now.

It's fine. Okay, remain calm as I explain. The blockade event will start at 11:56AM Game Time on 29th December Game 29th December. However! The moneymoneymoney sloop will only come on at the beginning of the third (3rd) round. This is-

Why?
Really? ... This is to ensure that there's plenty of time to get everything hauled: the board is reset at the start of a new round. By waiting until the third round, we all get the long break between rounds three (3) and four (4) to make sure zero (0) poez are left unhauled.

That was very clear and rather wonderful. I'd certainly feel very silly bothering you now with any further nonsense regarding the timing, but I have a question about the settings - a question to be posed old school!

The settings are available for perusal at leisure in-game.

Why is this horse eating me?
You are made of straw.

Okay, but are there any restrictions on pay or whatever like with the other event?
Jeez, what? No! Jeez. Just go sink each other at the TH (Treasure Haul) site (not 'sight') where all (some of the time) the PoE (at least 561K!) will be (for some of the time, anyway). Or! Lurk at the edge, hoping to net a sloop limping to port, laden with booty! But ... watch out for its fellows, lest ye become the one who was going to be sinking but instead is the one who is now sinking instead of the other one. There'll probably be people just causing mayhem as well. This could be ... you?
