The large, muscular man reached over with a scarred hand and tore off the wanted poster from the rum-stained board.
“Huh? Some old pirate wants revenge on the shark that ate his leg. Cap’n, you see this?”
Jaerax leaned back in his chair to regard his crewman. The scar above the eyepatch on his right eye twitched, as if trying to frown. His remaining eye narrowed skeptically.
“A shark? Really? What is he paying?”
“Says here 500 gold…”
“Who would pay 500 gold to kill a shark because of a grudge?”
“Looks like his name is Jhon “Scaliwag” Hendrs…”
“That was rhetorical, Tarthus. I don’t care what his name is.”
“Right sir. So… uhh, we gonna take the job?”
“To find a random shark somewhere out there in the vast sea in order to settle a grudge by a crazy old pirate?”
“... A pirate with 500 gold.”
“Point taken. How much did the fishmonger pay us for the carcass of our last kill?”
“Err, fifty two gold cap’n. He was an ornery sort, wouldn’t pay any higher’n six gold per tentacle and ten fer the beak.”
“Damn cheap seafood hucker! Wish we hadn’t lost one of those tentacles in the fight...”
Jaerax sighed and snatched the wanted poster from Tarthus’ hand and studied it with his eye.
“Return to the Predator, see if they’ve finished repairing the sucker damage on the hull from that last fight. Prepare the ship for castoff as soon as its seaworthy. I’m going to pay a visit to an old pirate…”
Welcome to patch 0.2.0, where we introduce SHARK BOUNTIES!
Pirates aren’t the only dastardly villains on the high seas; the sharks of the Mythic Isles have grown bolder, preying on merchants, menacing fishermen, and occasionally, eating the delicious limbs of sailors thrown overboard. The people of the land have grown wary of these new emboldened toothy threats and have begun to post bounties for any brave captain to slay the dastardly beasts. Jaerax will be happy to hear his skills are valued by more than just the fishmongers.
Additionally, the victory condition in Pirates of the Polygon Sea has been completely re-designed. The old system of paying gold for new ranks on the way to Governor has been scrapped. Instead, whenever a player does anything of note in game: finding treasure, killing a pirate, searching a shipwreck, slaying a beast, rescuing a stranded sailor, completing a quest, etc, they gain an amount of “Renown.”
When a player has collected enough “Renown,” they automatically increase to the next rank. Renown cannot be purchase for gold, and gold no longer contributes (directly) to overall progress in any way, allowing you to freely spend your gold on building your town and upgrading ship without worrying about it affecting your victory progress.
Finally, we have replaced the placeholder missions with real, actual wanted poster-style missions dripping with flavour and world lore. So dive in, and get to know the people of the Mythic Isles better than you ever have before as you involve yourself with their goals, tragedies, and triumphs… and earn a bit of money and renown along the way.
Be aware, however: anyone with a scrap of paper and a chunk of charcoal has the ability to pin a poster on a tavern board, so be prepared for some, uhh… variation in writing ability.
I’m sure it’ll be fine, you speak drunken semi-literate fisherman, right?
Happy sailing! And may fate smile upon you on your quest for fortune and renown!
Emelynn stepped over the side of the skiff onto the white sand beach.
Four men splashed into the water behind her and started pushing the boat further up onto the sand.
Emelynn shielded her eyes from the glaring sun with a white gloved hand, surveying her surroundings.
Palm trees dotted the beach, interspersed by giant boulders jutting up from the bedrock below. An imposing mountain stood at the centre of the island. Halfway up the mountain’s face, light red veins could be seen cutting through the rock.
“Iron…” Emelynn whispered.
“Mr Jhons, take several men with you and survey that mountain, I suspect you will find something very useful.”
“Aye Cap’n” The yellow bearded shipmate nodded eagerly as he finished tying the skiff to a nearby palm tree.
“Oy, Jacobs, Neilson, Smith! You heard the captain, you’re with me. Let’s go for a walk boys, bring the climbing gear.”
Emelynn watched as the men set off into the jungle, drawing hand axes and cutlasses as they approached the thick cover of vines and creepers barring their way.
From her vantage point on the beach, the trees seemed to grow thicker as the jungle stretched further inland. The calls of tropical birds and howling of monkeys could be heard echoing throughout the tree canopy. Many colourful reef fish could be seen swimming about in the shallows.
“Hmm...” Emelynn mused, a thoughtful look creeping over her face.
“Oh, Isabelle...!” Emelynn sang sweetly as her navigator was helped out of a second skiff by two crewmen.
“Yes Emm? AHHH, dammit!” Isabelle growled as she stumbled onto the beach, struggling to keep the hem of her dress from touching the ground. The sharp heels of her finely-made black leather boots immediately sunk into the wet sand.
Emelynn sighed and rolled her eyes.
“Why do you still insist on dressing like that? You DID get the pants and flat-bottomed boots I sent to your quarters, yes?”
“Because Emmy, we are… UGHHH… highborn ladies, and we should… GRRRR… present an aura of dignity and… HURRR… sophistication… ARGHHH… at all times…”
Emelynn suppressed a slight smile as her childhood friend struggled across the beach towards her, the wet sand sucking at her feet.
“Find out exactly where we are and mark this place on your map. I do believe we may have found our new home…”
Isabelle glanced behind her at the footprints she had left in the sand and stared at the thick, wild jungle that covered the island. Her eyes widened in horror. She then noticed the determined and hopeful look on Emelynn’s face. She forced a smile onto her face.
Welcome to patch 0.1.9, where we introduce resource gathering. Each player island now randomly spawns a number of resource “nodes” which can be gathered by constructing the appropriate resource building on top of that node.
Additionally, four new resource buildings have now been added to the game to help exploit these new resources – the Iron Mine, Stone Quarry, Gunpowder Manufactory, and Cloth Maker now join the Fisherman’s Hut and Lumber Mill as constructible resource buildings.
As an additional note, we have made large strides towards getting multiplayer connectivity up and running. If everything goes according to plan, we should be able to roll multiplayer out within the next few patches, so check back regularly for updates!
Until then, happy town building!
