    The good news is, the content is supposedly available today (I would guess now, plus or minus a few hours.)

    The bad news is, I've heard many many reports of the purchase or account management site not working properly.

    Given the bad news (and my limited play time), I'm going to wait a few weeks to upgrade.

    Darnit.

    I've got the expansion woot, but pgoh is hoarding saltpeter, sooo free reign to tax them as we're claiming the impoream. and kill them if they refuse, set your own tax.

    Good to hear all is well!

    Enjoy the week. Maybe I'll be by on the weekend.
     
  8. I scored myself a Tokuno Galley. Huzzah!

    I am still getting a feel for things though, so I will be waiting a bit before starting to rumble with PGoH.

    My Kraken Hunter VIII is anchored by the Jolly Roger Inn. She is a fine Tokuno Vessel with 4 light cannons mounted on it. This ship will be available so we can do some of the new quests, go fishing and attack landlubbers whenever we see them.
    The guild has gotten passenger access to my boat. Which means, they can enter it.

    Huzzah! Boat movement is fantastic!

    Aye, it is interesting that PGoH has been farming salpeter nonstop since the world returned, so nobody else has a chance to buy some of this ingredient which is obligatory for crafting cannon ammunition. Maybe they want ta put us out of business??

    Fortunately I've stolen fel and have so far gotten 2000 saltpeter and about to have 3k before I stop which I'll make into heavy rounds and fuses, Pike heavy cannons are better all around for fast damage and we can triple up on ships if we have two ships with drivers and one shooter. I can drive my own ship and fire from behind and force them into submission then destroy them with grape shot and archery as a driver can fire and cast and drive from every where on the boat. this is a weak strategy and I've got better for destroying a whole navy with only 2 ships.

    Formations to be practiced and what not, but we should try to get at least one warship.

    I have my own ship, but could use some cannons for her deck. I did stock up on wood and iron, but I lack the skill to make the cannons.

    Drop the required resources including a rune to your house into my mailbox and I will make them for you. I will drop the cannons into your mailbox when finished. Or we meet personally. :)
    Remember, you also will need lots of ammunition. But this doesn't require much skill, except for making Blackpowder you need 100 Alchemy.

    Ahoy Cap'n,

    I dropped off 9500 iron and 500 wood for 5 heavy cannons if you please. Let me know if you need more. I also left a rune for "Ebi Island" that is my island if we don't meet up.

    I am out-of-town this weekend so I won't be needing them until first of the week really.

    Thank ye
