On the Eleventh day of Christmas, Muroni gave to me...

This is day 2 of a 12 day event. Full event details can be found here.

Complete list of day 12 questions, answers, and winners.

I hope you'll read the complete event details, too, but I'm reposting the few rules here for convenience:
  • If the ability to edit returns mid-event, Do not edit your posts! Any posts which are edited will not be counted, sorry!
  • While you may make multiple attempts, you will only be eligible to win one prize daily.
  • If a question is about a specific person, please do not ask them the answer. I have no Nazi guards out looking for you, but I'm counting on your honor to keep it semi-fair.
  • No teams, please. This is individual prizes for an individuals competition.
  • Posting in colors other than the default, black, will not only make me angry, but disqualify you from this event and any other future event I decide to hold. Sorry to be so strict, but it's going to be messy enough as it is.


As a reminder, somebody else may post the correct answer, but if they've already won once that day, they can't win again. I usually give some sort of hint to that, and all you have to do is copy their answer =P

On the Eleventh day of Christmas, Muroni gave to me:
--Eleven Piles of Paper (quill and paper set)

Today's theme is:
"The Bookworm!"

Your first question: 1. What direction do whirlpools move in?

Re: On the Eleventh day of Christmas, Muroni gave to me...

DreadedChris is correct. Whirlpools move clockwise. First winner of a Quill and paper set.

Next question:
2. How long will gems remain in your hold before they are "stolen", if the ship is unoccupied? (Tricky question, be careful)

Re: On the Eleventh day of Christmas, Muroni gave to me...

We're going to give Whedonella credit for winning this question, since my flagmates have made me aware that 15 minutes is the answer posted on our wiki.

I'd like to clarify, however, that this was an ate up question =P
Our wonderful wiki is one of the best resources for information, but as it's player contributions, isn't always perfect. Technically, I suppose 15 minutes is the minimum, which is all a good gem running is going to be concerned with. However, it isn't really time related. The correct answer is: Until the ship resets ! Which can vary. Ship reset also returns abandoned ships to port and autofixes damage/bilge on ships.

Next Question is easy:
3. How many units of hemp are needed for one order of sail cloth?

Re: On the Eleventh day of Christmas, Muroni gave to me...

Muroni, you're giving away secrets! The wiki lies about gems so that people will think that they can't make gem runs, you know. I mean, who can make it from Jet to Sapphire in 15 minutes? If you just tell everybody that it's on reset, you'll create all sorts of gem-running competition!

(Also it -can- be much less than 15 minutes. I was quite irritated to forage gems 2 minutes before reboot.)

(Sorry, back to the questions. I blame the hemp for the derail.)

Re: On the Eleventh day of Christmas, Muroni gave to me...

That's correct, black_beard7. One order of sail cloth requires 50 units of hemp.

Next question:

Re: On the Eleventh day of Christmas, Muroni gave to me...

LdyNJeans is correct (with help from triggster, LOL).

A sloop can hold only 77 units of wood, maximum (with room left over for 25 rum!).

Next Question:
5. Not including Ice or Opal oceans, how much does the navy pay for a league with Incredible on the duty report?

Zipping through these now, wheee! GreatBob is correct! There are 59 islands on the Midnight Ocean! I have a meeting to go to, and won't be back for about a half hour. Let's see if you guys nail this one just as easily:

9. How many small cannonball shots would it take to max the swordfight damage on a Grand Frigate?
