"What happen to the pirates we are supposed to see? Then we go down the chutes, and it's where the pirates were. But they're all gone. There is nothing but skeletons down here!"
--John Hench

We will use a two-stage random (RNG) process.
For each credit, ye will have an address.
We draw winning numbers by RNG.
So tickets are spread 'cross the range, ye see.

Some point opportunities be below.  
Review the list, grab a mate, and let's go!

If a screenshot is needed, post it here.

Announced, flag-hosted events have contacts,
Noting attendance be in their contracts.

The evening's host records the guest's sample.)

^Disclaimer: Not all events, tournaments, or pillages will count for points. Items marked with a symbol (^) will be done on a case by case basis, and announced ahead of time.
Crimson Tide-aments and Carousing Nights will always count.

^^ Earning points for participation in an allied blockade is subject to involvement of our allies. Not all of our allies keep complete jobber lists from blockades. We would rather ensure that 100% of our mates receive their points than some arbitrary “I saw x, y, and z there when I was jobbing” type of listing.



Whom do I contact with questions or for more information?
If ye find ye have a question or two,
post in the thread; it's the best thing to do.  
But if ye find a post won't satisfy,
PM Fannon/Misty/Annaleese why.

Hoist the Colors!

"Within him, as he hurled himself forward, was born a love, a despairing fondness for this flag which was near him. It was a creation of beauty and invulnerability. It was a goddess, radiant, that bended its form with an imperious gesture to him. It was a woman, red and white, hating and loving, that called him with the voice of his hopes."
-Stephen Crane, The Red Badge of Courage

Congratulations to the winners of the Novemeber/Decemeber Hoist the Colors draw!

The overall points leader was Yearbook, who went crazy on all the CI runs! She will receive a pretty pretty sloop, the name of which I do not remember at this time. Maybe we should take bets on what it is? That could be amusing.

Other prize winners:
Sand Dollar - Lazylubber (donated back to flag)
Red Starfish - Confess
White Starfish - Pierut
Set of 3 Rope Coils - Pity (donated back to flag)
Black Frosty Fir Tree - Cloudcake

Please contact Annaleese (unless your name is Yearbook who should wait for Fannon to harass her) by Friday, January 23, 2008 to claim to your prize! If you are having trouble finding her in-game, remember you can always PM her to schedule a time or arrange to have it passed on. As always, let us know if you'd like to re-donate your prize for future drawings.

Hey guys! Here are the changes to the point structure I told you about a few weeks ago.

- Winning a tourney or bake off is now worth 2 points. 1 point will be awarded to any 2-4 place finishers. Still requires minimum of 16 entrants into tourney as well as a screenshot.
- Points will be awarded for only the first CI run each day that a pirate is on. Any additional runs that day will not earn additional points. Same point structure as before.
- Points for pillages will continue to be the same and multiple pillages in a day can still be claimed. Pillages of more than 5 battles will earn an additional 1/2 point per battle for every pirate on board.

These changes are in effect as of March 1. Please remember to always always post a screenshot as well as the date the event occured.

Questions/comments/concerns can be sent via PM to myself.

Gasp!! A new winner, or rather, a return to an old one.

The winner of the July/August Hoist the Colors is....Lazylubber!!

As the winner, Lazylubber will win the sloop, Moral Cod (parked at Spring). He will also win Yearbook's bounty: a 15k gift certificate to Teddy Bauer (on Cranberry).

Changing things up a bit, the next top two will also receive a prize, along with three random names. The prizes will all be randomized.

Yearbook has asked that she be skipped, so the next top two are....

Madanne - Yellow Horn (new) (re-donated)
Sandwitch - 5k gift certificate to Jeans Lafite (re-donated)

Randomized:

Schremp - the sloop Good Gurnard (at Oyster)
Thyone - random furniture
Wildrosie - sand dollar

Everyone can claim their prize from me (Annaleese). As always, let me know if you'd like to re-donate the prize back into the prize pool for next time! Winners have until Sunday, September 20 to claim their prizes!
