YPP Weekend Blockade Roundup for Oct 24-25
Sat 2015-10-24 13:10:37 (in context)

It's a friendly weekend in the blockade scene.

On the Cerulean Ocean, Babylon invites Super Awesomeness to tussle over Cormorant Island because "they haven't had some PvP fun in a long time." Isn't that nice? It's very considerate. Also, they'll be using an entertaining selection of ships, and there will be a Halloween-themed raffle.

And on the Meridian Ocean, Legacy of Life hopes that a noon-time drop on Harmattan will fit the busy schedule of Imperial Coalition better than that of their previous drop on Raven's Roost. IC have graciously accepted their invitation to "a fun and relaxed cade." I like seeing flags play nice.

I'm only being a little sarcastic here: I'm used to seeing flag royalty at each others' throats on the forum, so, really, how long can this last? But flag drama is very much not why I love playing Puzzle Pirates. YPP is one of the cutest and friendliest MMORGs out there, and when people getting into serious snits at each other over it, it makes me uncomfortable. So: Yay friendliness!

All I'm seeing in Emerald Ocean Parley is a bit of a kerfuffle over messages left on Aimuarie housing news boxes. This is decidedly not friendly, nor is it really blockade related. What you want to know is that Brigand Kings are attacking Tumult and Marlowe today at noon PT, and Barbary tomorrow at noon. Also, tonight Illuminati and Hysteria will battle over possession of Pukru. There, isn't that much more useful then knowing who accused whom of leaving what message at Jonestown Houses?

I may or may not find time to job in blockades today, what with being at Mile Hi Con and all. So y'all will have to get out and have twice as much fun as usual--some for me as well as some for you. Thankee kindly!

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).
