YPP Weekend Blockades, Feb 20: Otherworld holding a CI wake
Sat 2016-02-20 14:04:23 (in context)

A couple of weeks ago we got the news that Darksidemoon (Cerulean Ocean, flag Otherworld) had passed away and left us bereft. This weekend sees her flaggies taking a tour of the Cursed Isles in a war brig in her honor. "Moonie absolutely loved to CI and would find it especially amusing to see us attempt one on a war brig." This will be at 7 PM Pirate Time on Saturday, February 20. You are requested to wear whatever you've got in black. I mean, obviously, it's what you wear to funerals. But in this case it's more because that was all Moonie would wear. She just liked the color black. Everyone used to save their black rags to give to her. So that's what we're doing to honor her memory. Obviously black is one of the more expensive colors, what with the cost of kraken's blood and all that, but wear 'em if you got 'em and Otherworld will appreciate the thought.

Meanwhile, there are about a bazillion blockades happening, especially on the Meridian and Emerald oceans, and almost every single one of them is happening Sunday. Your chronicler is grumbling a bit about that, since her roller derby practice schedule prohibits her participation. But she hopes you have a great time!

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).
