THE END IS NEAR! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

My first solo event- gonna close my eyes and jump on in!

It's all a matter of perspective!
Cerulean Event
December 21, 2013
Noon to 5p.m. pirate time

In celebration of the first anniversary of the end of the Mayan Calendar,
the end of days growing shorter in the northern hemisphere and the beginning days getting shorter in the southern hemisphere, but mostly to celebrate that being "underpopulated" is not a bad thing.

What makes this different from any other party? It will take place aboard a GF. People have been saying for years that we would never be able to fill one on a sub ocean again. Let's see if they are right- or let's prove 'em wrong!

Originally this was a lark. I wanted to try to get the entire ocean on one boat. I thought it would be fun to have us all standing on the deck saying "CHEESE". I also wondered how the /w would look.
Then the OMs hosted the Atlantis trips last week. But that was not fun for non-subscribers or people who wanted to just come back and do a little puzzling without making a financial commitment. Wouldn't it be nice if non-subs could play too?


PRESENT EXCHANGE-accepting presents from noon-1 pirate time. Items will be placed on the deck. At 4,(or port) presents will be distributed to those that turned in wrapped items. Several nice gifts have been donated by Hagriad and Metaa = ). Please bring a wrapped gift. Please leave the tag blank.

TOURNIES
As many as I can figure out to host. Show off how spiffy you are.

TRIVIA
Let's see how smart we all are when we are together.

We will hopefully conclude with a PILLAGE aboard said vessel. There will be cash payouts to those receiving top marks on the DR. I have tentative confirmation from several willing bnavers.
If we can get that big boat moving w/o the magic of OMs it would be awesome! Think of the big boat trophies that are out there to be won! How fun would a GF Yeti expedition be…..

A song….cause there ought to be a song.

Thanks to the stupendous Squiddy

That's great
It starts with a tidal wave
Birds and snakes
An octopus
And Ryujin
is not afraid.

Eye of a hurricane
listen to yerself churn
Ocean serves its own needs
Pirate serve yer own needs
Beat it with a stick, no
saber, no, falchion.
Sabers start to rattle
with a fear to fight
skellies' might.
Cannons start to fire
At a government for hire
on a block-ade night.
Gorgonyx and triketos
and bellators on turtles
breathing down yer neck.

Flag on flag
Admirals baffled
sinked, sanked, sunk
Look at that whirl pool
Fine ... Then
Uh oh, underflow population
Greenie spawn
But it'll do to save yerself
Spawn yerself
Ocean serves its own needs
Listen to yer heart, mate
Pirate with a rapture and
a capture of the loot, woot!
Vitriolic, patriotic, boom
shoot, boom, shoot
Taking all their loot!

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
And I feel jolly.

12 o' clock. Blockade time.
Don't get caught in foreign climes.
Slash and burn, re-turn
Listen to yerself churn
Lock it in, uniforming
Ship burning, blood letting
Ev'ry motive escalate
Ev'rything incinerate
Light a candle, light a cannon
Chain shot, grape shot
Watch yer shot, get shot ... uh oh
No fear, privateer
Renegade, steer clear
a tournament, a tournament
a tournament of drinking
Offer me the corner fries
Offer me the hook
and I de-cline.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
And I feel jolly.

I feel jolly.

(Instrumental)

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
And I feel jolly.

The other night
I dreamt of knives
Continental drift divide
All the islands in a line
Can't sink with Nine!
Don Smythe on a brig
Shoot his cannon balls with trig.
Ocean party, cheesecake
Lotsa cake, rum cake.
Symbiotic, patriotic
Rum, cake, shot ... aye?
Aye.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
And I feel jolly.

Thanks to everyone who supported the event. We didn't get the whole ocean on a GF. We didn't even fill all the stations. But we had lots of fun, gave away lots of prizes, and pillaged on a GF. Thanks to Devilmaster, Samjones, Tzz, and Zingman for taking turns at the helm (I got to drive too!) Thanks to the awesome pirates that puzzled better than "fine". I am sorry no one got a ship up to PVP us, maybe next time.

Special thanks to me crew mate, Guppie, without whom this whole thing would've been impossible. Thanks also to me awesome Captain, Donsmythe, fer lending me a spiffy looking GF, to Squiddy fer singing and writing the song, and to me wonderful flag for teaching me how to do events.

If ye feel I didn't take good care of ye, please let me know and I will do me best to work it out.

Thanks again!!
