Chrissy brought this to my attention,so first a big thank you to her.

Secondly,I wanna say...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To our beloved One Eyed Jack,Thomas Purdue,the Friendly Necromancer,the Friendly Witchdoctor,the Guy with the cool gatsby and glasses,the Community Manager at Kingsisle,the guy who works hard to make sure all the negativity is squashed and all the positivity shines.
It is my honor to wish you a happy happy birthday,in the name of the Pirate 101 community!!!!

As for the birthday party that Chrissy and I should throw,we're both open o hearing when you guys will be available.Should we squeeze this party into Esperanza and Misty's party?Or in an entirely new one?Anyways,we've been meaning to honor One Eyed Jack for a while but Community Manager Appreciation Day is just so so so so so so so so so far away.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One Eyed Jack is the Friendly Necromancer/Witchdoctor? WOAH MIND BLOWN. Anyways, I'd like to join in on this! ...Even though I lost P101 membership. Don't worry, though, I've bought all of SI skyway. Happy Birthday!

Oh KEWL I get another chance to Spoil One-Eyed Jack aka Tom aka Friendly Necromancer aka Dworgyn. Um Tom, you have a slightly severe case of AKA syndrome.

The Happiest of Birthday wishes to you. May it be filled with enough loved ones, helpful co-workers, delightful surprises, being thoroughly spoiled and packed with enough blessings and giggles to keep your smile muscles buff all year long.

*Raises a tankard of yum in your honor and directs the entire cast of Message Board Marauders into a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday sung Underhill style.

4.Saying Goodbye to Misty

Haha! I've been ratted out, and it wasn't even Ratbeard who did it.

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes! I don't know how long I'll be able to show up at the party, but I'll definitely log on to say hello to everyone.

p.s. No, I don't voice the characters Dworgyn or One-Eyed Jack . . . I just get to play as them in the community.

I can't believe I forgot >.<

Well happy Birthday Thomas Lionblood and I hope your co-workers got you something special for your Bday :D (Like maybe a yummy cake with your Wizard101 character sketched on with frosting and maybe a few thousand crowns/Bundles/hoard pack items/all the fun stuff :P )

And Hoodoo master I will TOTALLY come to that party (unless I am busy with crush that day)
But I think the party should be in a specific tavern (the one in Flotsom :P for clear reasons)
I hope One-Eyed Jack decides to come because it would be a blast to finally meet him on the server!

Happy Birthday, One-Eyed Jack, and many happy returns! I hope yours is a lovely day filled with love and friendship (which I quite expect will be true) and many, many such days are the best I could wish for you.

I agree that we need to meet in Jack's Tavern. We can still celebrate all the awesomeness of all these wonderful occasions, its just that only one of the guests of honor actually has a place in game for us to celebrate in. It will make for a great screenshot too.

Just wanna throw this out there: I'm not leaving forever! Maybe just until Christmas...*crosses fingers for a game card*

I also think we should move the meeting place to the Black Spot. It is quite a bit bigger so we can squish more pirates in there, and then we can raid the cellar for Yum!

Now all we need to decide is what to do during the party. I bet everyone's already max nautical level, but we could always find some Skyway Bosses to crush. That's always fun! Or we could do some PvP. I don't know. I guess whatever happens, happens.

I have no objections to change of place. The Black Spot certainly has enough room for all of us! Whoot what a grand celebration this will be!

Hahaha, I'm a necromancer, so tell the voice of Dworgyn that he has my support. My little hunchbacked support. Oh, and I like you too. You're pretty cool.

*blushes*
Not every Pirate is max Nautical level so perhaps the Skyway boss crushing could put a few more nautical levels on their Pirate that they join the party on. That and some people have a weakness when it comes to pvp, the weakness being not very good at it *blushes again*

We could always meet up in the Black Spot, then storm Avery's Court to say hi to anyone who can't get to Flotsam.

And I just had a hilarious idea, but I don't know if it will work. Before I share it, I have a question: is there a limit to the amount of Pirates that can be on one ship?

Eh, no worries! I'm terrible at PvP. I lost spectacularly in both matches I have done recently. And I bet that I'll lose in almost every match I join in the future, simple because I don't do PvP often enough to work out a decent strategy. And as for Nautical level, Aquila is a wonderful place to farm if you have access to it! Though I would not challenge Spartacos solo.

I know,and I can't think of anyone offhand who doesn't have a membership,but you,Chrissy,more than anyone know of my sticky situation,and why I sympathize a lot with those who can see this very post,and have no voice with which to make manifest their will to party with us.This is why I pointed it out.

Oh and Misty,I believe that there is no limit.

One Eyed Jack,Bonnie Anne,or anyone else who may be reading this,mind asking Dockmaster Dan(the developer,not the NPC),what the limit of passengers on a ship is?

Well, Misty I'm pretty sure the limit is four pirates, same as the dungeons and instances. We actually hit the limit on a couple of ships during the last message board party.

oh and...
Happy Barfday One-Eyed Jack!
