Seeking Fun and Antics and Purpose and Fun! ((Cobalt))

Avast!

So it all seems to be well and good but - where be the enthusiastic pirateers? I seek fellow crewmates with a gift for gab and a slew of battle cries and weird traditions and pineapple-hunting abilities and chutzpaaaaaargh...

Ahem. And! While we're at it! I need a greater purpose! Like cornering the pineapple industry! Devising the best shanties! Holding rock-paper-scissor tournaments! Discovering new things! Having parties! Et ceteraaaaargh!

Help?

Yours truly,

Purplenoggin

(( Role playing? Antics? Fun? ))

Re: Seeking Fun and Antics and Purpose and Fun! ((Cobalt))

Will you please be more specific as to what you looking for?

If you are in a crew recruiting pirates on Cobalt, use this.

Otherwise, are you looking for Cobalt excitement? storyline?
If so, look no further than yourself for helping develop it, or check out the Events forum for more ideas.

I think he is looking for us.

Meet us up on Cobalt, Hunlimo, and the Legend Raiders.

We also get bananas. :)))

Re: Seeking Fun and Antics and Purpose and Fun! ((Cobalt))

I'm looking for fun.
- Comrades that love joking and banter and wild schemes and outrageous traditions.

I'm looking for newbie guidance.
- Is it impossible to chat while puzzling? Isn't there a way around that?
- Does my skill at distilling matter for anything? Can I earn PoE, or something?

Basically, I'm really good at some of the puzzles, but this is secondary to my main interest: a fun pirate life! Does anyone really get into the role and the frenzy and fun? Does anyone role play?

Found him! I believe he's a subscriber, too? On Cobalt if you're still looking for Him... :P

It makes you better than me!

 
Does anyone role play?


Some people do sometimes, I wish more of us did. When I try to it seems I just confuse people.

Re: Seeking Fun and Antics and Purpose and Fun! ((Cobalt))

Well, yes. The higher your skill at any of the labor puzzles (distillery, apothecary or shipwrightery), the more poe you will earn. Most shops have a labor price based on the skill you exhibit performing that puzzle. If you can only score fair, you may earn 20 poe, but good could be 30 and excellent might be 40 (these wages vary by shop/stall and by ocean). Also, some distilleries are very desperate for expert labor and may even be willing to pay you a bonus beyond their wages for guaranteed expert labor, so check around.

Re: Seeking Fun and Antics and Purpose and Fun! ((Cobalt))

Help! I'm not finding a fun and meaningful experience!

Without fun banter and role-playing and purpose, isn't this all just obsessive-compulsive bean-pushing?

Who has fun with good people? How do I get involved? What about "parties", for example? Does anyone make fun events out of that?

A masquerade?

A treasure hunt?

A duel for a lady's honor?

A boat race that will decide who swabs who's deck for the next week?

A pineapple hunt?

An interior decorating school?

A fashion contest?

Et cetera?

PS - My new pirate is "Plantain".

Re: Seeking Fun and Antics and Purpose and Fun! ((Cobalt))

Not only events, but start checking around with larger flags/crews! Many of the bigger crews and flags host their own events quite regularly...and although they love new blood when you join their crew for the fun events, MOST of them don't require you leave your old crew.

Take Pirates of the Damned, my crew, in the flag Crimson Tide. We usually have a fun event oh...every week, at least one. We post in our crew/flag forums, but most are open to the ocean. We've had whisking parties, memming parties, we had a crewmate do south park pictures of everybody and you had to guess who they were...one of our former crewmates had a huge party week, we do themed pillages, our flag regularly schedules fun pvp matches with other folks in our own flag (so you have the fun of PvP knowing your teams are fairly even and you won't lose a ton of poe)...We do birthday pillages and quite a few of our members host huge parties for their birthdays with free tournaments and such...I hope I don't insult anybody by leaving their great event off this list, but I'm still sleepy =)

So, start by making a list of the bigger flags out there, and try signing up as a guest on their forums. Now and then check them out for fun events. I'll get you started, ours is at www.thecrimsontide.org/forum/

I know there are a few other flags out there that operate similar to us, I just don't have their forum links memorized, I'm afraid. Maybe they'll have somebody post here =)
