Well, it seems to be time for another party.
I know we're probably all quite busy with family stuff right now, leading right through the holidays.
So, I thought we could hold our annual Christmas/New Years party...in January, after New Years. Please let me know if this sounds like a better idea than trying to cram a party in ealier.

After New Year's is great! Less busy & stressful, we'll be able to wind down and visit.

I agree, it does. Hey, it doesn't hurt to have a little Christmas festivity in January for the New Year!

Could have more than one party. I think it might be nice to have one between Christmas and New Years also.

Maybe I could host a Party on Pirate 101 between Christmas and New Years? If I have enough people/pirates interested I think I could do it. I already have the Smuggler's Arena, Party Room, and all 6 Minigames on my privateer Two-Faced Dino Clegg.

Well, we could. I at least can't host a party between Christmas and New Years. But that does not mean that nobody else can.

A Saturday would probably be best, as on the weekdays, most adults playing this game have work and most children or teenagers playing this game have school/college. Let me know what works best for you!

A party is a chance to meet some of the people you know from their message board posts, plus other pirates that have read about the party, or have heard about it in game, or port to a friend there. Sometimes people take pictures of the gathered pirates, and One- Eyed Jack has been know to include some in the monthly newsletter. Sometimes the gathered pirates decide to go do something as a group, like attack the dreadnaught in ships. RRRRZZZZ419 also has some nice housing items that also will give pirates something to do, like the in house dungeon, Smuggler's Arena. I mention this for the newer pirates.
A long time ago, the first party I went to, only me and one other pirate showed up. That might sound like a bit of a bust, however, the other pirate was Chrissy Th'Blesser, and we friended each other. Totally worth showing up to meet her.
I think there will be more pirates at this party, as long as a date, time, and realm are chosen soon, so there is time for the post to appear and give pirates a chance to say if any can be there.
I'm leaning towards having an open house, day after Christmas party, for those who can't wait for, or make it to, the other party. Does daytime or evening sound better for you? I have a house with a 4v4 PVP arena, wishing well that gives a gift, and for this, I'll move the party room and Smuggler's Arena to that house, too.

I am going to do this a little differently to try to ensure the game doesn't create a second area. Yes we will meet at Skull Island Docks like before but I am going to have this party over 2 realms. I will dock my ship in Vadima. Anyone interested in showing off their ships will dock them 2 realms up in Raven Eyes.

Again the party will be Saturday 12/30/17 at 3 PM Eastern / 2 PM Central.

It sounds a little confusing, but I suppose that's alright. I will dock my Ship in Raven Eyes, but I will certainly attend at Vadima. I can't wait (and I'll definitely try to bring my friend that came with me last time)!

Here's hoping this posts today, and people see it. I will be dropping by Avery's court in realm Avery at several times today Dec. 26 to ask who would like to visit the open house, or Calamity's party, and porting people to my house. Sorry I can't pin down a specific time, but I'm going to start doing it at around 9:40 am. I figure the earliest people will see this message is after 10 am. Hope to make it to the later party this week too, on Dec 30. Where is the meet and realm for that 3pm party? The host ought to confirm that, too. Sorry if he already has, and it gets posted later today too.

I can't double quote that I know of so I will respond to Helpful Aurora Parker and Calamity Finch without quoting them.

Helpful Aurora Parker - What part of the party plan do you find confusing? Remember the last party was one realm only and that messed up things as a second area was created. The goal with a 2 realm setup is to ensure only one area is created for each. This should make sure everyone finds my ship in Vadima, and everyone gets to tour other's ships is Raven Eyes. Just to be clear, the party will kick off in Vadima.

Calamity Finch - I did already post the plan, scroll a few posts up. But, I do need to tell people what ship to look for.

Arrive at Skull Island Docks no later than 3 PM Eastern / 2 PM Central on Saturday 12/30/2017. If you wish people to tour your ship cabin, dock your ship in Raven Eyes Realm, once you have done that come over to Vadima Realm and find a Marleybone Galleon with an orange flag with a cat on it named the Mystic Monarch.
Board the Mystic Monarch then enter it's ship cabin. You can either hang out in the ship cabin or go through the Green Portal inside and hang out in my dorm. If you have any questions during the party, just look for a Musketeer named Two-Faced Aurora "A Roar A" Clegg or a Privateer named Two-Faced Dino "Die No" Clegg.

I have the day off from work that day, so I'd be able to make it to the party. Hopefully, I don't forget...I'm still kicking myself for missing the last one in October.

Alrighty. That's a good idea. I'll try to make it if I can!

Thanks to all who came to the open house, and made it a festive event. I was able to port people to the party in the morning and afternoon. I'd hoped for a third session for the evening players, but other things kept me off line that night. I met some new friends, enjoyed introducing some new players to the wishing well, and it was wonderful to see people in the morning party playing in the 4x4 PVP arena. I wish I could have spent more time socializing at the party, but I was pretty busy that day. Thanks for visiting!
