Periodic Portraits 2014! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

We'll be creating whisks to creatively named ships throughout the year. These will be special locations for you to take portraits solo, with your friends, and maybe with an Ocean Master or two.

We will be posting dates and unique ship names for each ocean. There will be a whisk on the events tab of the notice board which will remain up for the whole day. These are NOT free portraits - it's just an opportunity for you to get a portrait with a special ship name and maybe a special background. We will be choosing names based on the season, holidays, or the current theme for the limited edition portrait backgrounds.

Feel free to make suggestions here. Remember it needs to make sense in the following phrase: "Commissioned by Aphrodite on the fine vessel ..........." The ship names should be unique and not exist on the ocean. We may end up having different, but similar, ship names on different oceans. You can see the ship names we used in 2013 here.

If you own a renamed ship (either standard or custom) and would like to share it for a portrait location, please post the name of the pirate holding the deed and vessel name. If we decide to use the name, we'll create a portrait ship with that name just for the day. If you've posted your ship names in previous threads, you don't need to post here again. We've got a list!

Portrait Ship Schedule:
December 30-January 2: of New Year Resolutions, lost at sea
January 29: First Plaice (Emerald and Meridian), First Place (Cerulean), Ultimate Puzzler, Booched Puzzler

Shark Week!



In honor of this cutthroat sea dweller, we’re having shark-themed portrait ships! The first ship will be posted on Monday, August 11 around 7am game time, and run through the weekend. Each day, I’ll add a new ship, resulting in 5 portrait ships being available Friday-Sunday. Maybe if we throw a whirlpool into the mix we’ll get our very own Sharknado!
