Birthday GF Pillage on Feb 1st
My birthday's on January 31st and to celebrate, I'll be hosting a GF pillage on February 1st.

When: Feb 1st, 2:30PM game time. (i'm shooting for a 3-4 hour pillage)
What: Pillage on a grand frigate.
Where: Quetzal-Saiph route on the Hunter ocean.

I intend to run a GF pillage, and see what can be done to keep battles relatively short. I'll be watching closely to see if there's any kind of pattern to how soon the brigands begin to run from a filled GF. With any luck, we'll be able to get a good number of shots in and grapple before they go into running-mode.

Very few full GF runs have been made recently, and many people are curious what sort of payout plateaus can be reached with a full GF. Subbers, keep in mind that 42 doubloons can buy you a month-worth of subscription, so poe made on Hunter won't be entirely wasted. Doubbers, you know of course that doubs can be transfered to your home ocean.

Following the pillage, if we have enough people, we will attempt to defeat the black ship for a second time.

Shouldn't this be in the Hunter Ocean Events Section of the Forums?

Why is it in the all ocean events forum.

You're not better than anyone else...please only post where appropriate. Thanks.

Actually, he is known on multiple oceans and has friends on multiple oceans so it does belong here since he is inviting all oceans to come and have fun. And people wonder why I left Cobalt...the answer...its too cocky .

Actually Synful is correct and I believe he was trying to get the word out to mates like me who remained on Viridian when he and the majority of OD moved to Hunter. I for one am greatful that Fenrir took the time to post in the Viridian Forums since I do not read the Hunter forums.

That being said I will be there to help you on your Birthday pillage Fen!

Re: Birthday GF Pillage on Feb 1st
I merely stated my opinion since the event is taking place on Hunter and not on every ocean.

Re: Birthday GF Pillage on Feb 1st
Slntslayer,

It's a point well taken and I did debate about whether or not I should post here. Like Hawkings said though, I did want to get the word out to all my hearties who play on other oceans. I figured it was warrented given that Poe made on Hunter can easily be transfered to other doubloon oceans via doubloons, and with a bit more work can go towards a month of doubscription for all the subbers out there.

In addition, full GF pillages are a pretty rare occurrence on all oceans. I can understand why many people would not be interested in attending one, especially when not on their home ocean, but I figured that if anyone from any ocean had a desire to get on a full GF, they'd be happy to know about an event like this.

Finally, I know at least a few navvers from other oceans have lots of questions about how full GF pillages work. There just aren't enough data points to really get a good feel for where the booty maxes out, or for figuring out rules on when the brigands will begin to run, or for knowing how difficult the swordfights will be. I'm hoping that this pillage will be able to provide navvers from all oceans with at least some useful information.



Anyway,

Please do come out to this pillage. It's very difficult to fill a grand frig, but I'm hoping that we'll be able to tonight. The ship has a full compliment of gaming tables, as well as a tournament board and a portrait easel to keep all the pirates who can't get an open station occupied.

After spending 500k on paint, stock and game tables to prepare for the pillage and taking off work early, we got a reboot 5-6 battles in. At peak we had about 120 puzzlers.

Re: Birthday GF Pillage on Feb 1st
doing it again would be great, knowing that the pilly would actually *last* a while and not be cut WAY short by a reboot would be MUCH better.


I'm floored, annoyed, and UGH annoyed :p
