    The Pirate Conspiracy is a series of events for all players, guilded or not. These events will consist of scavenger hunts, riddles, adventures and in some cases limited fighting. Some events will require geographic knowledge, some a keen mind, courage, or a moderate fighting skill. Few of the events will also be quite dangerous and challenging.

    During a guild meeting at the Lion's Den in New Haven, the treasurer of the Gentle Rest Inn guild named Hefeustus was lured under false pretenses to a room next door. There he was knocked out and kidnapped by an infiltrator and by Hawkeye Pike, Captain of the United Pirates. Rumor has it that the pirates are trying to pressure the hiding-place of the huge guild treasure out of him. Hawkeye Pike has written down the secret wherabouts of the hostage on a piece of paper. For safety reasons, this document has been split up and distributed on a series of books hidden all over Britannia. To find out the location of the captured treasurer, you have to possess all books. You have the opportunity to achieve that during these events. Once all books have been discovered, it is up to the adventurers to decrypt the message and find the kidnapped treasurer. (All discovered books will be put on display in public for everyone to read.)

    The First Event: Retrieving the First Secret Book
    The first book has already been stolen from the pirates and been hidden somewhere in Britannia. The object is, to follow the clues in this scavenger hunt, solve riddles, and find that book. The one who finds the book first, will be rewarded with a valuable artifact! The quest will start in the Jolly Roger Inn in Trammel on August 30th at 9 pm EST (map see below), where you will receive the first hint. Anybody can participate, no special equipment or preparation is required.

    The upcoming events will always be described and announced on the United Pirates homepage:

    I hope many will come and enjoy this event!
