Periodic Portraits, 2018! 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 or longer. 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, special in game events 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 Hera 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, 2014 here , 2015 here 2016 here and finally 2017 here .

I'm so organized, it is beginning to scare me. I've obviously forgotten to do something super important if I've already sorted the March portrait ships!



March 2nd has us celebrating Holi! Will you get"up to mischief" during this Festival of Color? (Please only throw purple powder my direction!)

March 14th is Pi Day! Celebrate the day on board "Slice of Pi"

March 17th is St Patricks Day! Hope you aren't "Feeling Green" as you "Shamrock On"

March 30th is International Jazz Day. Will you be "jazzing it up" on board the last portrait ship of the month?

Firstly, as an Aussie, ANZAC day is important, so keep that in mind when I make this horrible joke...

Can we have a Funny Glasses Day ship? Preferably with "funny glasses" in the name?

I still think clown noses should be an option, too.

Clearly, I'm forgetting something VERY important if I have May's ships sorted already. But I'm not going to panic yet; I'm sure I'll wake up in the wee small hours of the morning recalling exactly what it is (or someone here will point it out!)



May 4th is Star Wars Day! Will you be "feeling the fourth" on board "Rogue One"?

May 20th is World Bee Day! "Too Bee or Not Too Bee" , that is the question!

May 25th is Towel Day! "Don't Panic" if you are "Forty Two"

May 29th is Memorial Day. Remember the sacrifice of others on board "Always Remembered"

I thought there was a separate thread for volunteering our ships for portraits, but maybe not.

In any case, if any of the following names are appropriate for any of the portrait themes, feel free to use them (Obsidian only, unfortunately):

Millennium Falcon (sorry for not offering this before May the 4th)
Serenity
Silent But Deadly
