Recent OM Firings(?) Reply to this Post

As I was looking around YPPedia, I turned my attention to look at OceanMasters because of the merges. I then began to scroll down and saw something interesting. Under the list of a special column called "Shanghaied Mates" lists a list of Former (?) Ocean Masters:

Artemis

Cronus

Eurydice

Gaea

Glaucus

Hermes

Oceanus

Poseidon


If this was already brought up I apologized but if not, Care free to discuss

Presumably, these mates were "shanghaied" into other divisions of Three Rings, such as Whirled, Spiral Knights and Doctor Who: Worlds in Time. You will notice if you go there that many names will look vaguely familiar, or they will admit to having Puzzle Pirates aliases.

I believe that Hermes is no longer an OceanMaster per se, but he is a developer now, as you can see from his recent participation in the Uniting the Oceans threads.

I petitioned once to find out what had happened to Oceanus and I received a similar answer.

I know for sure Artemis and Eury are on Spiral Knights. Artemis has saved me from bugs many times. Eury is the community coordinator. Oceanus too is on SK I do believe.

Aw, so that's where Eury has gone!

I sent in a support ticket in Spiral Knights a while back and it was answered by Oceanus.

Thank you for coming to the Oceanus Appreciation Group.

First we'll start with cofounder Partypoison who has prepared a presentation on the overall uplifting presence of Oceanus

Then we'll hear from our guest speaker anonymous poster (Razzl)

Afterwards we'll break for refreshments, Ocean Cookies and Punch

We'll conclude with a team activity for fundraising and scheming ways to bring Oceanus back.

And with that, we now turn the time over to Partypoison.

Oceanus was a valued member of the puzzle Pirates community. He created loads of fun, and didn't just police the game, but he pissed around too! I remember on Viridian '06 us two had 1v1 200 PoE poker, and he won!

Who can forget his fun when El Pollo Diablo was beaten the third time? Its become apparent that we, as a community don't want these Gods called Oceanmasters policing, but actually contributing involvement. I havn't seen Apollo on sf tables as much, I havn't seen Hera on the docks. I miss Gaea's random Rock jokes in OceanBroadcast

Gaea broadcasts, "Whats a rocks favourite form of Transportation"
Gaea broadcasts, "A rock-etship!"

EDIT- And then there is Hephaestus. The Troll Oceanmaster who trolled the ocean on many occasions. I remember midnight, I was standing on docks when he sneaked up behind me, and put his front, towards my back. Originally I felt sexually violated. Then i thought "Gibz me moar Hepphy"

We need him back!

Yes we need Oceanus to come back to join us, I miss having him around as OM. He was always enjoyable to be around.

Also I miss having Lizthegrey working the "tech support" area, she was always a big help when bugs came up. She helped fix a lot of issues. Also she helped create the anti-cheat system.

As Cronus' official stalker, I say he's the bestest. And also he's probably trying to escape me.

Rumor has it that Apollo and Hera are spending time on Dr. Who. Although Hera has told me she will still be on YPP occasionally.

Again, this is all rumor, so take it for what it's worth.....

I have had Aphrodite, Gaea, Clotho and Poseidon help me on SK, so that answers a few not even mentioned in the OP.

/whine: It pains me every time I have to see one of the GM's on SK, as their names are graype, their chat is graype and their armor is usually graype. *sigh*
/end whine
On a happy note, however, their weapons are bansticks and they are oh so very cool!
