    Well, after a two plus year break, I'm back.

    I have been reading all of the wonderful tales of adventure on here and decided to post a quick tale of my own.

    I finally made all of the goodies needed to fire a cannon, bought a galleon and set sale east of Ice Island.

    I came upon a ship full of orc hummies and set my cannons ablaze.

    I think I'm going to like being a high seas Pirate.

    I got some good LooT out of the hold and a white cloth dye tub. I remember buying my first black dye tub on ebay some 12 years ago for about $25. Now how the tides have changed.

    Those white cloth tubs are hard to get - in terms of gold, it's probably worth as much gold in-game now, as $25 would have bought you gold on ebay back then. Granted, gold is worth about 1/10 or less what it was back then, but still....

    I'm up to three white cloth dye tubs now, have hunted perhaps 12 pirate ships down. I thought those things were rare.
