Grumbles' Giveaway Event, October 19-23, 2018 Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Hear Ye!



A great event is arriving in a few weeks. Grumbles is having a birthday and getting OLD (finally, right?). A milestone is happening that MUST be celebrated in YPP since Grumbles plays only one online game and has done so faithfully nearly every day since January 2004 (okay, so she missed maybe 10 days but ?nearly? sums it up). Plus, not many in this game will ever have a chance to celebrate this birthday in YPP, so we might as well do it up BIG!

During this event Grumbles will share some of her collected wealth with pirates playing Obsidian ocean as a way of giving back and saying thank you to everyone who continues to play this wonderful game.

So what Birthday could possibly warrant a special event? A number so notorious in YPP that nearly every blockade has some flag offering it (or a variant of it) in jobber pay. A number mentioned many times in vessel chat. No? not 420? Grumbles is not THAT old. But, if this does not give you enough information to figure it out, perhaps some details below will help you. NOTE: this is not a joke? this is Grumbles? REAL age.



Grumbles will be hosting or asking for people to host some events and giving away several million in PoE and prizes . Some events will be more-or-less random giveaways; others will mean you have to compete for them; others may just be some fun events you may have rarely seen in Obsidian. These will be revealed in a couple weeks as details are sorted out. If you have suggestions for events or would like to add to the prize pool, please discuss with Grumbles.

Prizes will include:

  • Cash prizes (e.g., 69K poe, 69 dubs)
  • Many Ships (most sizes, including some LEs and wrapped LE Ships)
  • Stock (e.g., 690 cb, 69 rum, etc)
  • Rogue Marks
  • Furniture
  • Pets


When: Various events will be running Friday, October 19 thru Tuesday October 23, 2018 . These will be announced in Obsidian forums and/or in global chat. (***Posts lower in this thread give links to the posts for each event***)

I hope to see you all in YPP!

Important Legal Footnote:
The existence of this giveaway event does not imply or suggest in any way that Grumbles is quitting YPP.

Events being planned include

1) Atlantis run hosted by Chaos on Friday, October 19. We are aiming to fill a War Frig (but will downgrade to a smaller ship if necessary). There will be lots of PoE and prizes awarded throughout the entry. If we manage to port at the end of the run, those on board at exit from SMH and also on board when porting will be included in random draws for: a) all VO trinkets, b) VO clothing (male or female choice given before VO contents are opened), c) VO furniture, d) VO pets, e) restocking cut. Additionally, for those same pirates, a local SF tourney will be held with poe, prizes and any familiar found in VO chests

2) An Event Blockade “Cup” (involving four 1 round blockades) with lots of prizes and jobber pay covered to encourage pay at or near 4k per segment

3) 2 or more Tournaments each day between October 19 and 23. There will be no entry fee and a nice set of prizes. Types of tournaments will be set so that no Parlour Badge is required for each tourney

4) “Sink the Bnaver” – a brave Chaos team will set sail on a sloop and invite people on other sloops to try to sink them. PoE will be paid to each jobber on board the attacking ship at the end of the match. Sloops and stock will replace ships sunk in the event.

5) Random giveaways to first jobber on sloops at various times as well as random giveaways to 11 jobbers on cutters.

More information on these events will be provided as we get closer. We’ll be using a special Grumbles Birthday Bash Discord server (https://discord.gg/2T9Kb59) during some of the events. This discord will also be used to announce timing of some events each day. All are welcome to add that discord server now to be ready.
