We have! In that same area. The first mate took a screenshot.

They were easy little purple ducks to beat.

New addition? Alien brigands?

Don't suppose we could get word from a dev on if these are on purpose or accidental and, either way, if they're going to be staying?

They are primordial pirates. Note that they also have no hair or hats. You all started out as these poor, fetal things. Clearly some brigands have forgotten to go through the personality process.

We got some kraken's blood off these fellows yesterday, so I am feeling very fond of purple pirates at the moment. Gave me quite a shock when we boarded, though!

I was about to say to everyone that these guys do seem to have nice booty often..... I also encountered these guys on my small sloop and we had 5 mates on the ship. We pillaged over 1000 POE and 7 units of goods, two of which were a Kraken's Blood and a Thorianite. We also got some Tellirium. Sounds like prize pirates to me.

To hazard a guess, these were recently generated brigands that from some bug, forgotten to assign brigand traits. That would explain the reports of good hauls, the fact that the ship had just been spawned.

I think they look cool. Definetely a change of pace. Very tribal.
I think you should add them as a feature. Maybe some different colours.

I agree they do look cool. It was nice to be able to fight something that at least looked different than the regular collective. Maybe you could create "races" of brigands, the second of which is the purple people eaters we are all seeing. Maybe even give them something other than a foil to fight with?

Aye, I think it's a good way to increase chances of winning Kraken's Blood, as well as something new, fer a change.

Hmm...I ran into them too, but unfortunately for our boat, they cannoned the hell out of us:



I thought for a moment that we were fighting a mini-black ship, except that it was them who engaged, not us.
