Puzzle Pirates blockade schedule for the weekend of May 3-4

See also

The blockade show this weekend belongs almost entirely to the Meridian and Emerald Oceans. (The "almost" in the sentence refers to a single blockade this morning on Opal, over and done with by the time your chronicler even took her first look at the schedule; Gretchen Goldfang and her flag Der Fluch have succeeded in taking over McGuffin's Isle.) There isn't much enlightening chatter about it on the forums (aside from the usual desultory complaints that the game is dying, because reasons). Nevertheless, it bears noting that Meridian flag Barely Dressed is getting attacked on two fronts this afternoon and evening, and that Meridian's Most Wanted is attacking on two fronts this afternoon. On Emerald, the flag Rebound is particularly active.

Not much else to say except to encourage you to job when you can and earn some PoE, because Black Box Series Five is out and you'll want some spending money to sample those wares...

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).
