Intent to Blockade Cormorant Island Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Greetings fellow Ceruleanites. Although we had successfully defended our dear Cormorant Island, it was ultimately taken from us while we were away from the ocean escorting our children in the annual celebration of begging for candy from strangers. While we certainly considered just letting it go, we decided that no one should be allowed to earn an island simply for choosing a date known to fall on a family activity holiday. Therefore, we have decided that the usurper needs to legitimize his rule of that spot o'land by having a credible fight over it. Should he and his flag emerge victorious, then they will have earned the right to sit on the winged throne. Should they not, then we will have proven that when our flag shows up to the fight, we put on a super awesome display of violence and destruction.

To that end, we have decided to launch a special operations military exercise incorporating sea-based and amphibious forces in a joint operation to reclaim our nest...




WHO: The ancient and noble flag of Super Awesomeness
WHEN: Saturday, 5 December 2015 at Noon Pirate Time
WHERE: Cormorant Island in the Onyx Archipelago
WHAT: A sinking blockade - winner take all (the war dec has already been returned, so this one if for all the injuries...)
WHY: Because we feel cheated out of our first victory in defense of the island, and believe that it was unearned by its current governor
HOW: By asking as many of you as possible to come support our efforts to reclaim our nest.

Pay will start at 1000 PoE per segment, and we will match the defender's pay if they raise above that mark.


Jobbing contact will be announced in the blockade job offering. Questions may be directed to Steveb, Hirsty, or Pizzahutpete in game.

Babylon will be defending. To be fair though, the October 31 weekend was chosen as it was the last one ever to have the 24 hour blockade window. So I went kade crazy, and dropped on 6 islands around the ocean. Not to pick a weekend people would be busy.

See you on the board.

Cheers,

Major

True, but that circumstance makes for an excellent precept for today :)

Thanks for the visit Super Awesomeness. Enjoy Comorant (and Shipyard bazaar)! Sorry I couldn't make this one folks, but by the sounds of it it was fun. Thank you to our amazing jobbers, drivers, and staff all around. Hopefully we will see you on the board soon!

Cheers,

Majorjr

I wanna say that was a helluva blockade. Thanks to Babylon for making it a fight worth fighting. Thanks to everyone that came out and jobbed on both sides, since that made it competitive, and especially to those who jobbed with us, since we couldn't have gotten very far without you.

...and Major - good choice on the SY bazaar. There is now a chart for sale that only used to be available through pillaging. That was the last route in the Onyx arch connecting the north to the south. We'll take good care of the building.

The important question is, was it placed on top of a commodity spawn?

Wouldn't matter much. Pattonditto pretty much crushed spawn all over the island back in the day.
