CC Blockades Tumult

Coerced Coexistence seeks daring pirates for the dangerous job of flag sitting as we attempt to take our third island, Tumult.

Now, when I first read that, I said to myself "Self, what the heck is so dangerous about flag sitting?". And since I'm a know it all, I had an answer. The answer of course is that we have Dalnoth navving. And he tends to not be very discriminating when or where he's shooting. Friend or foe has faced the briney deep at the end of his guns. So the orders for this cade will "Be like Dalnoth"...and shoot everybody.

Our intention for this island is to keep it. We have plenty of supply opportunities a short sail away and will make every effort to treat Tumult like an extension of Armstrong as far as pillaging is concerned. Things can and do change quickly in the game so I don't know whether we'll have new plans in a month or not.

Of course, we'll always be willing to discuss terms of a blockade for the island if some flag wants to blockade it.

Anyways, here is the particulars:
What: Non-Sinking Blockade at Tumult Island
When Jobbing at 11 am gametime, Sunday August 23rd. Cade starts at 12 pm
Pay: 600/segment
Jobbing Contacts Jobcc and Aidcc
Bonus Giveways We will be selecting 3 pirates that are not lazing at random for each round to receive a brand new sword. The swords will be a Falchion, Skull Dagger or Scimitar. We'll do white/red in the first round, black/yellow in the 2nd and purple/green in the 3rd. These swords are not yet delivered but completed at my IM on Aim. I will deliver them tomorrow so as not to age them an extra day.

You are aware that the Queen of a flag can drop a chest, correct?

Do you need a whisk to Tumult? I can hook you up.

I sure am :p
But I'm also aware that I might need another pair of ships in order to live longer than a round with Prince -Loves to shoot everything- Dalnoth on the board.
*e winks

No worries, we'll be on the board one day, and hopefully sooner than expected

It looks like you might get your wish. A bunch of crewless frigs just ported at Tumult. I have a good idea who it is and I don't put it past them just to be messing with us. But I'm expecting somebody will contest it.

How about this? Tumult was open on this day last year! August 23. So far the only time Tumult's been blockaded was on the 23 of August.

I'd be careful when shooting Dal, he's been known to steal the rum of those who shoot him.

Good luck CC.

lol, no lawyer is needed.

I was really just trying to get the word out that this may not be a flag sit, as previously thought.

Either way, we'll need gunners. :p

Re: CC Blockades Tumult

Wow, well that was a BLAST! I hope the jobbers had as much fun as we did in such an unusual "blockade".

We sent in War Brigs only for round 1 with orders that no CBs get returned for a massive WB cage match. Yoke brought in a sloop for fun (thanks Yoke!).

For round 2, we downshifted to Baghlahs. Kickhead and Slimbottom got in on the fun, too (thanks guys!). I know some of our navvers were giving out nav orders to the top duty stations or whatever other way they picked.

For round 3, I took in the Flag Sit Mobile. After lulling Kickhead and Slimbottom into a false sense of security with my "creative" strategy of turning the wrong way, ramming rocks or shooting the opposite direction, I was able to use the tricky GF over sloop advantage. I didn't even shoot Pleb :p

Special thanks for RR for allowing us to have this much fun "sinking" so many ships in a non-sinking blockade.

As usual, trying to mention everyone by name is going to result in me forgetting someone so I'll just thank a whole bunch of people that really got into the spirit of having some fun and made it work. We got some hard working flaggies some nav time they might not have gotten otherwise and got to play with some people that normally line up on the other side. It was everything we could possibly ask in a flag sit.

Our swords winners are as follows:
Round 1 (red/white swords): Callisia, Cyaspy and Bedlam
Round 2 (Black/yellow swords): Sandbar, Barney, Skushi
Round 3 (Purple/green swords: Sunnyflower, Limpeis, and Tormented.

Contact me in game or PM to arrange pickup. The swords will be placed in the rack at Blade to Rest on Aimuari in the meantime.

You're welcome.

Too bad I didn't have a chance to give Yoke something bigger to take onto the blockade board. Although he can be quite a big pest in a sloop. (<3 Yoke)

Looks like it was a fun time for all. I'm glad. Again, congratz CC on your new island. Enjoy!
