Thread: Periodic Portraits 2021! Reply to this Post

Here we go again!!

We'll be creating whisks to creatively named ships throughout the year. These will be special locations for you to take portraits solo, with your friends, and maybe with an Ocean Master or two.

We will be posting dates and unique ship names for each ocean. There will be a whisk on the events tab of the notice board which will remain up for the whole day or longer. These are NOT free portraits - it's just an opportunity for you to get a portrait with a special ship name and maybe a special background. We will be choosing names based on the season, holidays, special in game events or the current theme for the limited edition portrait backgrounds. There may be random portrait ships put up in addition to these during the year, but they will not be preannounced here.

Feel free to make suggestions here. Remember it needs to make sense in the following phrase: "Commissioned by Hera on the fine vessel ..........." The ship names should be unique and not exist on the ocean. We may end up having different, but similar, ship names on different oceans. You can see the ship names we used in 2013 here, 2014 here , 2015 here 2016 here
2017 here, 2018 here 2019 here and 2020 here!

Hi Hera,

Is there any chance we can get a change-up to the current lineup of portrait backgrounds? Either new ones or re-releasing old ones? There's quite a few nice portrait backgrounds that I really enjoyed back when I last played 7 years ago. I think a lot of pirates would appreciate new (or old) backgrounds to be available!

I second this! Even I am tired of seeing like 6 Wayfarer backgrounds up as options!

We are currently looking into doing something along those lines.
