The General Details:

- Standard restrictions: No forcing prize to break the ToS, give away possessions, or act against RM

- The auction closes on Saturday, November 4th at 11:59 pm PST, or 12 hours after the last bid, whichever comes last.



Slave overview:

Artorius - Will carp and sail all day; become Mr. Hairy
Bisquick - Will do anything; excels in all duty puzzles, shipwrightery, charting
Chihiro - Avatars
Dekalyn - Strong, versatile jobber
Estsanatlehi - Strong, versatile jobber
Featherfin - Specializes in swordfighting, sails, distilling; entertaining
Hardknocks - Specializes in sails, carp, tarting

Krissybear - 10k
Krulac - 35k
Nattee - 60k



More detailed view of the products offered (links to pirate pages included!)

Artorius

A very unique product, Artorious is quite valuable for any pillage. With the endurance of rock, he will carpent and sail all day if necessary. For an added fee, he will even lend his legendary bilge skills. But wait, there's more! If you act now, he will volunteer to forego all shaving for an entire month, transforming himself into (dun dun dun) Mr. Hairy!

Restrictions: no bilging unless you pay him

Bisquick

A valuable pillage jobber that can bilge, carp, sail, or d- navigate with the best of 'em. As the fourth-ranked bilger in the entire ocean, your blue meter will cower in fear! She's not too shabby at guns, either. Need help memming? She has all live points on the Midnight Ocean memorized for your convenience. Need labor? She can consistently produce expert in distilling and shipwrightery. Take advantage of a free puzzling day to have an immense amount of free labor!

Restrictions: none!

Chihiro

The winner of this pirate will receive either:
1. A set of one large and one small matching avatars for yourself.
2. A set of two matching (or not) large or small avatars for yourself and another pirate.
See samples of her fine work here!

*Note that this doesn't follow the standard rule of three hours of in-game time, as these will be made offline and may take more or less than three hours.*

Dekalyn

Have exclusive control of The Pea(tm), including full use of her extensive carpentry, bilging, and sailing prowess. She's willing to do it all just for you, should you be the lucky winner! Take her on an elite pillage, and have her share for yerself! She'll even tell you where she got that strange nickname, but only if you win, folks.

Restrictions: no hearts, spades, rumbling, td, or gunning

Estsanatlehi

Now is your chance to seize control of a Navajo goddess, the Girl with the Impossible Name! The same being who created the first man and woman from pieces of her own skin also happens to perform magnificently at sailing, carpentry, or bilging. Having no use for material goods, she'll be happy to relinquish her share from any pillage during on-time. Or, if you're so inclined, have her punch your eye out in rumble. She has so many uses, the possibilities are endless!

Restrictions: no gunning

Featherfin

Do you suffer from the debilitating syndrome known as boredom? Statistics show that over 90% of all humanity has at some point. But despair no longer, for there is now hope! Featherfin has already saved innumerable people from that same fate, and he can save you, too! Here's how it works: Input known as F Squared enters through the ocular sensory cortex and stimulates the neuro-receptors. Not affected by a certain type of stimulus? Fear not, for Featherfin can tart, sing, complain, dance, and be open to most forms of abuse. That's stimulation for all tastes! And, as if that wasn't enough, Featherfin will simultaneously perform any puzzling act. He'll even do it well if he's sailing, distilling, or swordfighting! So, ask your doctor about Featherfin. You'll be glad you did.

Restrictions: none!

Hardknocks

The brigands will all be learning a lesson from the School of Hard Knocks when your ship approaches if he's on board. Whether on sails or carpentry, he'll be a valuable addition to any pillage (with all added profit going to you, of course). Whether on sea or land, he'll dazzle the ear with tarting that rivals the gods.

Restrictions: no navving, swordfighting, rumble, cardgames, or licking feet

Jimbolicious

If you're looking for something that doesn't just taste good, but has that extra oomph of flavor, you want Jimbolicious. However, eating is not the only thing that he's good for. If on a pillage for you, he'll sail or bilge like there's no tomorrow (for, indeed, day/night cycles do not exist). Or be one of the few people to ever observe him utterly failing at carpentry. More docile interests? His trademark entertainment will have you rolling on the floor laughing, or scratching your head in confusion. Need some help with advertising? Jim's your man here, too! See samples of his work everywhere in this very post. Did I mention his overwhelming modesty?

Restrictions: none!

Kickurhass

If you like extra labor and long pillages, you'll love Kickur. He can sail or carpent for hours on end, seemingly without tiring at all! Experience the wonder of high-endurance puzzling on your pillage today! Not content to just have him work the whole time? He excels at making any pillage or event more interesting simply with the power of words. If nothing else, you won't be bored with him around (and if you think you're bored, I recommend seeking the pleasure of driving his face into the dirt of a nearby rumble pit.)

Restrictions: no navving, swordfighting, or cardgames

Krissybear

Move over Teddy, because Krissybear is comin' to town! Far superior to your average bear, Krissy can perform quite well at both gunning and carpentry. But listen carefully, folks, because this may be your last chance to see this. For this limited event only, she has declared that she will, if necessary, don the color pink. If you don't want to miss out on this exceedingly rare opportunity, you'd better break out your coinpurse.

Krulac

Experience for perhaps the first time the profit and fun that accompanies a pillage with Krulac! If you win, you have the option of having him lead a rockstar pillage with you, where you get to keep his share and the crew cut after restock! Or, put him with female pirates, and watch the self-proclaimed "Tart Extraordinaire" in his element. There are lots of pirates and sailors on this ocean, and just a few dozen good battle navvers, but there is only one Krulac. Wouldn't you like a one-of-a-kind treasure for yourself? Only for a limited time!

Nattee

If you've ever been on one, you'd know that Nattee-led pillages kick booty. Take full advantage of this by bringing home your very own! Prefer to give the orders yourself? She could do most anything you asked with such sparkles that you might be blinded looking directly at it. Swordfighting, bilging, sailing, and gunning at the Ultimate level are all services you will have at your disposal, should you win this fine prize. As if that wasn't enough, she is also Legendary at duty navigation, battle navigation, carpentry, drinking, treasure drop, and shipwrightery. Have more dock-based desires? She can cater to all your Tarterism needs! It's clear that this commodity has something for everyone, and will be in ultra-high demand, so if you want to take her home as your own, you'll have to bid early, and bid often!

Heh, it could possibly count as actions against the crew depending on how it's interpretted. Although if it's in fun, I don't see why not.
