If that's the wrong intent photo, we're shiverin' in our fancy boots to contemplate what might the correct one be!

Shadowiie of the Emerald Ocean

It's the first weekend of the year and blockades are back! And the flags of the Emerald Ocean are losing no time about it. The schedule there is frantic and -- so far -- high paying: Shadows of Sage, Black Flag and Wavin' Flag are already hiring jobbers at 1,000 pieces of eight per segment for the blockades on Cryo and Bowditch Islands. That action gets under way at noon Pirate Time, along with a high-powered Brigand King attack on Armstrong at the same time. After that, it's non-stop battle after battle straight through to Sunday.

Not to be left out, State of Emergency on the Cerulean Ocean is attacking Blackstar on Olive Island. That's another blockade that starts at noon and for which jobbing offers have already appeared: 1,000 PoE per segment and sure to rise. And on the Meridian Ocean, Rum Soaked Devils are defending their forts against Meridian's Most Wanted's dual-island drop, and that's just part of your Saturday afternoon fun on those particular high seas.

Of course you have a lot of cash to earn; you're tempted by that brand new limited edition Blizzard class sloop, aren't you? It's not going to be cheap, so get on board with your favorite contender and start puzzling for PoE!

Standard reminders: Schedule is given in Pirate Time, or U.S. Pacific. Player flags link to Yoweb information pages; Brigand King Flags link to Yppedia Brigand King pages. BK amassed power given in parenthetical numbers, like so: (14). For more info about jobbing contacts, jobber pay, and Event Blockade battle board configuration, check the Blockade tab of your ocean's Notice Board. To get hired, apply under the Voyages tab.
