Beware the combination of too much Coca-Cola at 4 AM, and a 6-person drinking game lasting several hours. It may just bring out the most deeply repressed of curious fascinations.

One thing that hasn't happened in this game since 2006 — or at least hasn't been reported on — is a player-controlled ship engaging with the black ship, and then defeating it. Enthusiasts are probably already aware that the OM Oceanus was on board, checking things out at the time when the black ship went to go hunt down some not-so-ill-fated sailors, and was defeated along with the other skellies on board.

And this brings a LOT of questions to me, being a game dev myself with an inherent interest in all things out-of-bounds-y:
What did this look like from Oceanus' perspective? What was the black ship doing in its idle time before engaging with Barrenmore? Does the deck of the black ship look any different from any other ship, like maybe one of the broken-down haunted decks in a Haunted Seas Graveyard?
What did Oceanus' minimap show before entering into battle? Does the black ship hang around and sail invisibly between islands?

Gah. I hope to awaken later in the morning with my technical thirst as satiated as my throat after downing too much soda for my own good.

I think the screenshot at https://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/images/f/f9/EPD_deck.gif , which is very subtly hidden on the YPPedia, answers most of these?

Make that ship the skilled swabbies ship! strong as a WF with a bit of design would be a great addition to the game and I might even have something to do rather than just pillage.
