    Word got around that Cap'n Lucky was looking for a new crew to man his ships and would be taking applications on May 30th. Upon arrival at the PvP House, the applicants were met by a rather salty and cantankerous Cap'n Lucky who sent applicants upstairs where First Mate Jack was waiting. Then Cap'n Lucky joined us and explained why he was looking for a new crew.

    'You appear to be a scraggly bunch but we'll see what you're made of. Me loyal mate Jack is the only man left from that last traitorous bunch of sea slugs I called me former crew! THIEVES! All thieves!

    [​IMG]

    Now, I enjoy a good spot of thievery myself from time to time. But, ya don't steal from yer mates! And never from yer captain!

    Da wretched bottom feeders stole me finest rum and been tryin' to duplicate the super secret recipe. Not that they have enough brains amongst 'em to bounce like a ball yer understand. Still, I want me rum back! And I'll be needing a new crew for me ship.

    O, aye, we've found where they've gone to ground like a bunch of barnacles not fit to be scraped off me ship and left to float down to Davey Jones' locker. Ol' Jack and me, we'll take ye there, and if ye be worthy, and perform yer task well, ye may yet prove yerself fit for me new crew. But don't think ye'll have an easy plank walk of it!

    So, here's yer task, if yer got the stomach for it. Jack and me found one of da ships where they think they secured the rum. Those twits couldn't secure a piece of gold in a strongbox. We'll take ye to da boat we found, but der be another boat missing with rum. You'll be given a uniform, put it on. When ye gets to yer boat, board up. Ye must find da oth'r boat and da rum, and bring both da bottles to me.

    If ye manage to find it and return me rum ye'll be fit to join me crew and have a golden ship sculpted and placed in yer honor, and ye'll be give a doublet crafted with me own hands in appreciation.

    I'll be waiting on me own ship for yer to return to me what is mine! But beware!!!! 'Tis been told dat de addle pated slugs been testing wat dey call 'rum' on the local wildlife with results dat were ... unfortunate. But enough of dis lolly gagging. Ye need to pick yer cap'n, should be someone who won't sail in circles. Ar! Ye cap't shall be identified with a cloak.

    Alright, I be takin ye to da boat we found. Ye understand yer test? Find 'ze boat with ze' rum and get it to Cap'n Lucky!

    The applicants were then transported to their waiting ship, the SS Minnow, which was near the Ocllo Docks.

    It wasn't long until we encountered rum-crazed sea monsters that were carrying Experimental Rum Brew that momentarily tricked us ... This was NOT the real rum the Cap'n had us searching for.

    Captain Serena Zephyr did an outstanding job of keeping the ship on course while we fought monsters and searched for the boat with Cap'n Lucky's Rum.

    Once the ship with the Cap'n's rum was located, we grabbed the contraband out of the ship's hold, and headed back to where Cap'n Lucky and First Mate Jack were waiting for us.​

    Upon being officially name a part of his crew, our initial uniform, doublets crafted by First Mate Jack, were replaced by doublets crafted by Cap'n Lucky. And crew captain Serena Zephyr received another cloak.​
