Pirates: Tides of Fortune

Captains!

The war will now become more fierce not only on land but at sea!
Dread Fleet has now vessels to offer!

HMS Reliant
Precision sighted long guns, a massive fighting deck, and a draft shallow enough allowing her to maneuver close to shore make this heavy defensive barque ideal for close-in coastal defense. When protected by a fleet of Gunboats and Men O' War, she can easily resist all but the most dedicated attack.

HMS Invincible
The first of a new line of Steamships from the Royal Shipyards, she was to be the symbol of British naval sea power (before her crew mutinied four hours into her maiden voyage). Her massive guns and ability to sail without wind make her a formidable opponent – and when supporting Brigantines and Frigates, she truly lives up to her name.

Set a course for the Smuggler’s Den to put ‘em through their paces!

ANSWERS TO THE QUEST

1. What pirate’s career had the following stages:
- a foot-boy to a wealthy woman in London
- a sailor on a man-of-war
- a cadet in a regiment of foot
- owner of the tavern
- a sailor on a Dutch vessel bound for the West Indies
- joined pirate crew
- was caught and died in prison of fever

Mary Read, a famous woman pirate, had a harsh childhood and had to dress up like a boy and earn her living herself.

2. What pirate does this phrase belong to?

“if you’d have fought like a man you needn’t hang like a dog”

Whom was it addressed to?
Please provide the story related to this phrase.

Anne Bonny who was the most notorious woman pirate sailed together with another famous pirate Jack Rackham (Calico Jack). In 1720, their ship was captured by pirate-hunters. During the fight, Rackham hid in the hold along with most of the crew, while Anne stayed on deck and attempted to fight off the attackers. After their capture, Rackham and the other men were hanged.

On the eve of Rackham's execution she came to him and said: "I'm sorry to see you here, Jack, but if you'd have fought like a man you needn't hang like a dog."

3. What pirate used to weave rope into his hair, and light it during battle to strike terror in the hearts of his enemies? Please indicate his real name as well as his pirate nickname.

Edward Teach known as Black Beard) deliberately developed a terrifying appearance. He had an enormous black beard, which he tied up with black ribbons and twisted into braids. According to some accounts, it covered his entire face and grew down to his waist. Before going into battle, he tucked pieces of hempen rope (rope made from fibers of the hemp plant) into his hair and lit it. The slow-burning chords of rope gave off clouds of thick black smoke that gave him the appearance of a living demon.

Blimey!

Look what exotic creatures have come to join us in battle!

War Elephant
Trained to defend the trading posts of the African Coastline from marauding slavers, raiders, and Barbary Pirates, these War Elephants fear neither man, beast, nor spirit. Their crushing psychological impact on would-be attacker's moral makes these Pirate Pachyderms a fine addition to any Haven defense.
Each additional Defensive Mercenary crew supporting the War Elephant receives a bonus to its defensive statistics.

We also have new technologies on our side, my seadogs!

Le Grande Cannon
A giant bronze cannon that sends your enemies straight off to Davy Jones with a "bang", and in very small pieces.The more offensive Mercenaries you have crewing this beauty, faster it can pummel entire islands to back into the sea. It doesn't exactly make for a small target, so don't use it for defense.

ANSWER'S TO THE QUEST

1. What type of pirates got their name from the way they cooked? Please describe the way they cooked and provide more details of this unit.

The Buccaneers got their name from the Caribbean word "buccan", a wooden frame for smoking meat as they were often seen while cooking meat on the wooden frames and drying it in the sun. The most of them were hunters who earned for their living by selling smoked meat of wild cattle and boars to the passing ships.

2. What type of pirates appeared after “legalization” of piracy? Please provide a short characteristic.

Privateers were hired by the government to carry out their actions. The ships of the privateers were privately owned by countries and when a privateer was called to duty, these were called “letters of marque.” Privateering was a way of mobilizing armed ships and sailors without having to spend public money or commit naval officers.

3. How were the pirates operating in the Mediterranean called?

Corsairs preyed upon the shipping lanes of the Mediterranean. The most famous corsairs were from the Barbary Coast of North Africa.

4. What language did the word “pirate” derive from? Please also quote the particular word it derived from.

The term is derived from the Latin word "pirata", which literally translated means “marine adventurer.” Pirates, with very few exceptions, were seamen who possessed the abundance of skills necessary to sail a vessel, including a working knowledge of a ship's complex sails and its ropes and lashings (calledrigging), and all things related to keeping a wooden vessel afloat and in top condition.

Pirates: Tides of Fortune

Avast, ye villainous codfish!

Now you can now recruit even more horrendous crew to your Dread Fleet!

Captain Flint
Meet the foulest, cruelest, most ruthless demon of a man to walk a deck since Blackbeard - Captain Flint! He is a match for any dozen Pirates (alive or dead). His notorious habit of shooting the slowest members of his crew in the back when attacking enemy ships has made him a legend in naval motivational history. Each additional Offensive Pirate unit under his command receives a bonus to his offensive statistics!

Airship
You can also take advantage of Master Van Der Voort's latest addition to his fleet of flying machines - the Airship! The Airship is considerably more effective than the regular Flying Dutchman at scouting enemy Havens and protecting your port from prying eyes. Each additional Flying Dutchman that takes to the skies with the Airship receives an additional bonus to scouting and counter-scouting statistics.

Pirates: Tides of Fortune

Captains!

The stakes are higher, the battles are bigger, and the seas are more dangerous than ever before! What with these Spaniards and Monsters, we’re losing men left n’ right! This will never do!

So... I’ve called in some extra help. From now on, every Haven will have access to a Ship’s Surgeon. Using all the latest advancements that 17th century Pirate medicine has to offer (sharper saws, padded tourniquets, gags, n’ strong rum), he’ll patch your boys up right as rain - plus or minus a limb or two.

The Surgeon allows you to recover a certain percentage of any units you've lost in battle within the last 7 days. His services come at a price - your lost Units will be revived at a discount of 20% off their original selling price in Rubies at the Smuggler's Den - so use him wisely.

Don’t let them sissies slack off just because they’re short a hand or eye or foot - that’s what hooks and patches are for! Slap a peg-leg on 'em and send 'em back into battle!

Sincerely,
Capt. “Bonnie” Anne O’Malley

We would like to thank you all for participation in our quiz! We got lots of mails! Well done!

Unfortunately, seems like pirates can't read well! Very few of those who have sent us the correct answer have followed all the rules:

1. Visit our profile at 17:00 UTC. (You can check the current UTC time here: http://www.thetimenow.com/clock/utc/universal_coordinated_time)

2. “Like” the quiz question and share it on your wall so that everybody could see it. (very few of you have done that!!)

3. Send us the answer to pirates_support@plarium.in.ua (please include the link to your facebook profile to the letter)

That's why we have only one winner:

@Chris Rowley

And the correct answer is:

The Portuguese buccaneer Bartolomeu Português was the first one to introduce pirate's code - a set of rules variously called the Chasse-Partie, Charter Party. These eventually became known as Articles of Agreement, or the pirate's code.

I. Every man has a vote in affairs of moment; has equal title to the fresh provisions, or strong liquors, at any time seized, and may use them at pleasure, unless a scarcity (not an uncommon thing among them) makes it necessary, for the good of all, to vote a retrenchment.

II. Every man to be called fairly in turn, by list, on board of prizes because, (over and above their proper share) they were on these occasions allowed a shift of clothes: but if they defrauded the company to the value of a dollar in plate, jewels, or money, marooning was their punishment. If the robbery was only betwixt one another, they contented themselves with slitting the ears and nose of him that was guilty, and set him on shore, not in an uninhabited place, but somewhere, where he was sure to encounter hardships.

III. No person to game at cards or dice for money.

IV. The lights and candles to be put out at eight o'clock at night: if any of the crew, after that hour still remained inclined for drinking, they were to do it on the open deck.

V. To keep their piece, pistols, and cutlass clean and fit for service.

VI. No boy or woman to be allowed amongst them. If any man were to be found seducing any of the latter sex, and carried her to sea, disguised, he was to suffer death; (so that when any fell into their hands, as it chanced in the Onslow, they put a sentinel immediately over her to prevent ill consequences from so dangerous an instrument of division and quarrel; but then here lies the roguery; they contend who shall be sentinel, which happens generally to one of the greatest bullies, who, to secure the lady's virtue, will let none lie with her but himself.)

VII. To desert the ship or their quarters in battle, was punished with death or marooning.

VIII. No striking one another on board, but every man's quarrels to be ended on shore, at sword and pistol. (The quarter-master of the ship, when the parties will not come to any reconciliation, accompanies them on shore with what assistance he thinks proper, and turns the disputant back to back, at so many paces distance; at the word of command, they turn and fire immediately, (or else the piece is knocked out of their hands). If both miss, they come to their cutlasses, and then he is declared the victor who draws the first blood.)

IX. No man to talk of breaking up their way of living, till each had shared one thousand pounds. If in order to this, any man should lose a limb, or become a cripple in their service, he was to have eight hundred dollars, out of the public stock, and for lesser hurts, proportionately.

X. The Captain and Quartermaster to receive two shares of a prize: the master, boatswain, and gunner, one share and a half, and other officers one and quarter.

XI. The musicians to have rest on the Sabbath Day, but the other six days and nights, none without special favour.

Congratulations to the winner!

Pirates: Tides of Fortune

Captains!

The day has come - the Dread Fleet has arrived!

New foul spirits from beyond the grave and legendary creatures of the briny deep are ready to join your fight for domination over the High Seas!

The vengeful spirits of the Plague Ship, doomed to sail on for eternity avenging their horrible deaths upon the living, are now at your service. A terrifying weapon to lead any Armada attack, the very sight of this ship will consign your foes to pestilence and death!

Each additional Offensive Armada unit sailing with the Plague Ship receives an offensive bonus.

The Kraken needs no introduction. If you're bold enough to chain the beast before your harbor, he'll turn attacking Fleet ships into kindling. When his grasping tentacles drive your foes towards your waiting Submarines - there's even less chance of escape.
Each Submarine working with the Kraken receives an additional defensive bonus.

So, captain, will you dare to make an alliance with these supernatural creatures for the domination over the Spanish Main? Or wait for your enemies to do it first!

Now available at the Smuggler’s Den!

Captains!

What with us being on the brink of war with King Carlos-Ferdinand, the seas are not as safe a place for pirates as they used to be! Me and my trusty crew will need to focus all our attention on guiding your through these troubled waters, and assuring you safe swashbuckling.

Well, I can't do it by my own self, now can I? So I'll be needing someone who can help give their shipmates a helping hand, and keep them up to date on all the latest news.

This must be a Pirate of the highest calibre, one that will inspire the utmost confidence of you and your fellow Captains - but what manner of Pirate shall this be?

Seeing as how most pirates trust each other about as far as I can spit a bilge rat, I ask you to select your favorite one of my Counselors to be promoted. Which one of these salty sea rovers tickles your fancy the most?

Moises "Bloodyboots" Johnson, my Master at Arms?

Pierre "Silver Tongue" Lafitte, the Envoy?

Perhaps William "Wee Eccentric" MacCallan, the Tinker?

Or shall it be the lovely "Savvy" Sally Sharp, the Merchant?

Who commands the dread n' fear of you and your crews? Pick carefully - you'll be seeing this grizzled buccaneer for a long time.
I'll be pondering over all your recommendations before making a final decision.

You lot have till this Thursday to vote for my next First Mate!

Please vote in the specially created poll above!

NEW GAME FEATURE - PRESIDIOS!

Ahoy, Captains!

The evil Spanish King Carlos-Ferdinand IV has declared open warfare upon all Pirate Brotherhoods!

There’s only one hope for survival - the abandoned Spanish Presidios scattered across the Caribbean. It’s a race against the King’s Fleet and your rival Pirate Brotherhoods - whoever captures and holds the most Presidios will have dominion over the Spanish Main! The let the battle for the Caribbean begin!

No Captain can do it alone! - to join the fight you must ally with an existing Brotherhood, or start your own.

Beware! The Presidios may be heavily defended by the Spaniards or rival Brotherhoods. Taking them will require teamwork and careful coordination.

Presidios can be managed with the help of your Brethren Court. Your Master at Arms will send you reports about everything that happens in your Brotherhood's Presidios, and your Merchant will help inform you about Resource deliveries to your Presidios as you work to rebuild them.

You can find more info about Presidios in the Help Window.

The Presidios await their new Masters! Who shall it be? You and your brave Pirate Brethren, your rivals… or the ruthless forces of the Spanish Armada? The let the battle for the Caribbean begin!
