YPP Weekend Blockades, September 30-October 1: Can't put it off any longer
Sat 2017-09-30 14:06:29 (in context)

I'm late and I'm also at a location with verrrrry sllllowwww internet, so this blockade report is coming at about one third the usual speed. Alas and alack! But while I'm waiting for my login to the Opal Ocean to resolve, I can tell you this much:

  • Dark Seas has launched on Steam!
  • Steam exclusivity has gone into effect for Dark Seas!
  • Blockades on the Obsidian Ocean are coming. Soonish.

So, yes, I have finally consented to download Steam and register a username there. Grumbling the whole while. Also, my username was taken. I ask you, who else in the history of the internet ever uses "vortexae"? Seriously? With an email address ending in @g***.a*? Is that "gmail.au"? Is that a thing? Has someone with an Australian gmail account taken the username I've employed since high school? Well. If you're looking for me on steam and you want to say hi, you can instead find me hiding under the very obscure username "nicolejleboeuf".

All right, I've finally given up and moved to a location with an internet connection that's somewhat faster than the speed of molasses in winter. Keep reading for this weekend's blockade schedule. Good luck, have fun, puzzle hard, shoot cannons, earn 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).
