Beware the Kraken!

July 29th, 2014

For months, merchants from the Empire have reported an unusual number of ships missing or destroyed in previously quiet waters. Those lucky to survive the attacks report “Giant Snakes” emerging from the sea. The Brotherhood of Applied Cryptozoology has confirmed these were kraken attacks!

This legendary sea monster was once only a whispered rumor - the mysterious source for Kraken’s Blood. Now, talk is swirling around pirate inns, claiming there are vast treasures to be found in the kraken’s lair. A new mysterious material, Kraken’s Ink, has been discovered. A local alchemist was seen purchasing large amounts of the material to transform it into Kraken’s Blood!



Be warned! Large ships cannot approach the kraken, as the beast will quickly send them to Davy Jones’ Locker. Ships traveling to a Kraken’s Lair should stock one lifeboat for each pirate aboard. Ye can find this commodity at yer local shipyard. This will allow the crew to approach the kraken in small, maneuverable rowboats. Avoid the tentacles and collect treasure!

Furnisher owners are enthusiastic about the new sea monster hunt and advertisements for specialty rowboats are starting to appear:

Krazy Karen’s Kraken Kraze Klearance!
Kustomize yer rowboat on yer next Kraken Konfrontation!

Bumper Boats!
Chum Boats!
Harpoon Boats!
Powder Boats!
Speed Boats!

Kraken’s Lairs is a new Sea Monster Hunt. If yer on a Doubloon Ocean, ye will need a bravery badge. Pirates on Cerulean will need a subscription to participate.

Thoroughly enjoy the puzzles - and have my favorites. Join a pilly and earn PoE so you can buy yourself new outfits and swords. Careful though - it is easy to lose hours to this game

One of the most dynamic games I've ever played - Shoot a fellow pirate's ship and you could start a war, start an ironmonger, and the cannonballs you make could end up blowing holes in your ship. Lose at poker, and that money could go towards your enemy's funds for blockading your island. Everything you do can (and will) have an impact on the world.

There's a real sense of achievement when you continue the game - you start as a pirate with a bandana, a few clothes, a flimsy foil sword, and you can end up the ruler of an island in a month. There's no real skill level grinding, due to the rating system that rewards natural puzzling skill. The game is fuelled by it's vibrant system of crews and flags, supported by the sense of close community - after all, you can't sail a big ship on your own. The economy is fairly deep, and it is nearly entirely ran by the people who play the game. Need some sugar cane for your distillery? Order it from an island and ship it in, or wait for someone to do it for you.

The game is filled with colour, and the cartoon design adds a nice friendly touch, the games are addictive and fairly plentiful. The range of things you can do as a pirate is massive once you get in to it. A really fun and addictive game. :)
