    Yay! Good news. I suppose VMK's resources are being pooled into POTCO now. I'm glad they're extending more priveleges to Basic Access members. Gives me more reasons to play again
    Inferno. RIP VMK.

    Next to the skull is a box to the right of it. If "+" happens to be on, you have trouble. Click on that "+" so the box is back with nothing in it and you should be fine.

    The french and the spanish soldiers, islands and flag ships have gone to Live version as of last night. Can't wait to see it later. It also involved a new quest with Orinda in Tortuga. We started that quest in test and never finished, so not sure what the prize is.

    Here are some new Game Updates:

    New Ghost Ships and Enemies ... Now Live!
    May 28 2008


    Keep an eye out for these ill-fated vessels -- these nightmarish forces of evil and danger are sure to challenge your skills & and nerves. The undead sailors are doomed to skulk around the waters of Isla Cangrejos and Cutthroat Island in their ominous Ghost Ships: Shadow Crow, Cerberus, and Blood Scourge. Be forewarned, these dastardly creatures can be fought off, but they're no easy prey - they're battle-hardened sailors with nothing to lose. So be careful when ye enter these treacherous waters!

    "The Ultimate Ship Battle" Screenshot Contest
    May 28 2008


    Splintering timbers are flying as cannonballs and waves crash around your ship -- it's an intense ship battle of epic proportion! Should you fire another broadside or retreat? What should you do during this time of peril?!? Snap a screenshot, of course ... and then send it our way! Ten lucky winners will receive an iPod Touch!

    Enter the contest here.

    Finding Captain Teague - A Father's Day Event
    May 28 2008


    You've heard of the man reputed to be Captain Jack Sparrow's father? We're talking, of course, about Captain Teague. This notorious pirate has gone missing, and in honor of Father's Day we need your help to find him. Finding Captain Jack's father won't be easy ... but it may make you a legend!

    Ship Privateer Battles ... Coming Soon
    May 28 2008


    Heave ho Privateers! Be the first to participate in the action. Scuttle your fellow mates' galleons in the name of Garcia de Avaracia or Pierre le Porc. Choose a faction wisely, for only one side can win and the other will be taking a trip to Davy Jones' Locker. Two small islands in the backwaters of the Caribbean are the setting for what will surely be a showdown between you and your rivaling crews!

    Check out these screenshots.

    Mother's Day Tattoos
    May 28 2008


    Aye, what buccaneer doesn't have a soft spot for dear old Mom? Earlier this month, many Pirates sported an "I Heart Mom" tattoo to show their moms just how much they truly care. Check out these fine works of art. As you know, these stylish brands never go out of style.
