Busy Saturday in the Pirate Village! Bard's Night at 7pm EST At 7pm EST we'll host the Traveling Bard's Night at the Jolly Roger Inn (map see below). The event is sponsored by the PGoH. The rules of bard's night are simple (although they sound challenging for a pirate): Leave your conflicts at the door and bring your stories with you. No harsh obscenities are used in your stories. There will be a time limit (usually five minutes, but may be changed due to the amount of storytellers). All stories adhere to the theme: Tales about the Sea The top three will win cash prizes and will be given an invitation to the champions event at a later date. The prize will be divided as follows; 500,000 gold crowns for first place, 325,000 gold crowns for second, and 175,000 gold crowns for third. Judging will take place by three crowdmembers chosen at random, who will decide on the winners. Black Market at 8pm EST The United Pirates of Catskills announce the next Black Market event for Feb. 7th, 8 pm EST! During this monthly recurring event you can sell, buy or trade your wares! This time, we will also raffle off valuable prizes to those who solved the Ransom and Blood quest. The facts: Merchants can claim a personal market stand in the Black Market building, where they can advertise and sell their products. To do that, the merchants should enter the list of their products into the book locked down on their market stand (at least one day prior to the event, so people can come by and check on the items). The prices should be LOWER than the regular Luna vendor prices! Bargaining is encouraged! Are you looking for a certain item? You can post your request on the bulletin board out front of the Black Market. Merchants can check the board beforehand and have the appropriate items ready for sale. The board will be wiped after the Black Market is over.
