Operation: United We Stand ~ Help Undo Evil!

Ahoy pirates....

It seems as though that our enemies are once again plotting against us in one final, desperate attempt to ruin our summer!

The traitorous Captain Ezekiel Rott, Guildmaster of the infamous Casa De Muertos guild and right-hand-man to Jolly Roger himself has recently been found missing from his spot on the beaches of Padres Del Fuego. Though it may have only seemed like a minor misplacement, what with him laying low over the past few months, suspicion still overcame some pirates, and they went on a hunt for the devious captain to see what he had up his sleeve.

After a very long, intense hunt, the pirates finally found Captain Rott wandering around the beaches of an island no other than by the name of Raven's Cove, which was infamously pillaged and destroyed by his "benefactor." He seemed to have a purpose, however, and before the pirates could manage to capture him he had disappeared in to the dense mist that covers the island. At this moment, he was seen venturing in to the mines of Raven's Cove, a very dark and treacherous place that very few pirates ever dare to enter.

This was not the final stop on Mr. Rott's journey through the Caribbean, though. He reappeared only a few hours later departing aboard the notoriously ominous sight of one of Jolly Roger's many war ships. With the pirates reluctant to engage him and his crew, they watched as he ported at the mysterious island of Isla Tormenta, where Davy Jones' nefarious crew lurks.

It is only now that we have finally come to a conclusion - Captain Rott is making an attempt to unite our enemies against us! He has done his best to persuade the crews of Davy Jones and El Patron in the name of Jolly Roger, in hopes that their pact will be enough to stop us - but they should know better! If our enemies unite against us, we must unite against them!

As a way to big farewell to the summer, we will be launching a massive raid on Raven's Cove and Isla Tormenta! We will begin by assembling in the town square near Crazy Ned, paying mind to any Rage Ghosts that will attempt to stomp on our crews. Once we all are in attendance, we will storm the Cave of Lost Souls, where we will as a group take perhaps the strongest foe these waters have ever seen - Foulberto Smasho! Once he has been slain, we will then head up to the top of Raven's Cove, and plunge in to the mines, where we will personally deal with El Patron's miners!

Once the mines have been cleared, we will launch our ships and sail to Isla Tormenta, where we will gather on the beach near the small, abandoned shack. Once we have our forces together and ready, we will launch our final raid of the summer by leading an all-out battle against the forces of Davy Jones, a truly epic climax to our saga in the Caribbean!

What: Operation: United We Stand - A Raid on Raven's Cove and Isla Tormenta
When: Friday, August 26th, at 9:30 PM Eastern (8:30 PM Central, 7:30 PM Mountain, 6:30 PM Pacific)
Where: We will meet near Crazy Ned, on Raven's Cove, Bequermo, and then take things from there.
Why: To end the summer in an epic showdown between good and evil!
Who: ALL PIRATES!

***PLEASE NOTE: If you are basic, or do not have access to El Patron's Mines, it is requested you bring along friends or guildmates that do so you may teleport to them.***

All the events that have been going on this summer lead up to this moment, pirates! You all have helped make them so incredibly amazing, and I owe it all to you. Let's outdo ourselves this time around!

I would love to join the "Operation: United We Stand", but getting to Raven's Cove is SO dangerous to me since I'm only a Non-Member and deadly..red ghosts..is going to haunt me. I'm not sure if I have any mateys in Pirate of The Caribbean Forum. Any ideas how I can get pass?

Pssttt...Another thing is...Where is "Crazy Ned"? Sent me a map, please =)

El Patron's Mines is only for Unlimited Access Members?
Sure I'll try to see if I have an Unlimited Access Member so I can TP to them, until then I want to meet some of the POF's Members.

Ahoy Miranda,

Seeing as how you are new to these waters, I would suggest finding a guild that would be able to aid you in getting to the event before you attempt to sail there by yourself. There is power in numbers, after all!

Crazy Ned is one of the few remaining survivors on Raven's Cove. He can be located in the center of the island - from the dock, run straight up through the narrow path, past the jail and down the small hill. Once you get down the hill you will find yourself in to an open area, with a small walled-in town area to your left and a wooden building in the distance to your right. Crazy Ned will be up in the center of that area, either hiding in his box, or running around frantically. I will post a map of his exact location as soon as I can.

Finally, El Patron's Mine can only be accessed by completing part of a quest that is unlocked at Level 30. Because you are not at that point yet, you will need a friend to go up the elevator shaft leading to the mines first, and then have you teleport to them.

Please be sure to bring as many pirates with you as possible - friends, guildies, friends of friends, and even pirates right off the street. We want to make this event special!

Victory!

Well mates, last night we pulled it off!

It started on a stormy night on Raven's Cove - one by one the pirates began to come in from ports from all across the Caribbean, ready to plunge a dagger in to the heart of Captain Rott and his new allies! However, before all of our forces had even arrived, it seemed that Rott was already up to no good, sending a very hyperactive rage ghost after us! In fact, she even went after me on numerous occasions!



Fortunately, we were able to hold her off until the morning, and by then all the pirates weary of coming to aid our forces saw our resilience and came to join us!... Of course, Crazy Ned did not take a liking to all the pirates crowding around his box.



The pirates were very eager to begin, their blades sharpened and their pistols cleaned - however, before we began, I called all the pirates over to be addressed briefly before we went in to battle.



It was then that I handed the speaking staff over to Captain C Ray, who wanted to make an announcement that even I didn't know the details of - and surely, it was a great shock to even myself!



Captain C Ray came in the name of the Pirates and Founders Association, who, for all the events we've organized over the past summer, awarded me the Bronze Participation Award! It truly caught me off guard, and I couldn't help but smile! Of course, I couldn't have pulled this all off without the help of all the pirates that made this possible, so that was for all of you, mates!

With my little moment passed, I returned to the head of the group and gave out the traditional battle cries to pump all of my fellow pirates up, before we drew our swords and charged after our enemies in a single, all-powerful force!



We stormed in to the Cave of Lost Souls, with our eyes on the first of our targets - El Patron's right-hand man, Foulberto Smasho! Even one of the most powerful foes in the Caribbean didn't stand a chance for the mighty group of pirates that had assembled, and before long we had taken him down already!



Of course, Smasho wasn't down and out just yet - he picked up his ridiculous hat and charged at the pirate forces once again, but this time I was determined to get in on the action!



Once Smasho had finally submitted to our mighty crew, we headed back out, to an even more dangerous place - El Patron's Mines!

The mines are notorious for being extremely hazardous and unstable, and many pirates haven't dared to venture in there since their discovery. Yet today would be different, as the pirates knew that if they didn't head in now, sooner or later the ghostly crew would prove an awful enemy on our own shores! So, we climbed to the peak of Raven's Cove, and then descended in to the darkness of the caverns, chopping down foe after foe!



Of course, I knew that the pirates were ready to make the final assault on our greatest foes yet (which I could judge by their mooing.) So, we abandoned the mines, and made our way down to the shore (which provided the perfect opportunity to get rid of some "unfit" pirates, as we all put it) and prepared for the final attack!

Of course, we knew "One cannot simply sail in to Tormenta!" We had to devise a way to scare off the fishmen enough so that the Dutchman would not rear her ugly head, and we did just that by assembling a great pirate fleet!



Safely making it to the shore, we gathered over by the small, abandoned shack on the beach of Tormenta, rumored to be built by the gypsy kings of the Caribbean themselves as a way to keep Davy Jones's crew confined to the Cursed Caverns. Here, I addressed my fellow pirates for the last time of this summer, where I thanked them for all their help in making all of these wonderful events possible. If it weren't for you mates, we wouldn't have made the first step in uniting the Caribbean, nor would have we made the history that we've made today.

That being said, we drew our swords, and the Battle of Isla Tormenta had begun!



The pirates fought hard, taking a siege against the caverns! Davy Jones's crew fought with everything they had, but they could not repel the forces of the brethren as they swept across every inch of the caves.





In the end, we proved victorious, and in celebration of the newly-claimed pirate lands, we did a hypothetical dance on Captain Rott's grave - we're coming for you next, mate!



Thank you so much to all the pirates who have made the past 5 events possible. It was hard to organize, but I can definitely say that every single one of them was worth it. Together we've made the Caribbean a stronger place, and it's all thanks to you!

Of course, I must recognize all the guilds that came out this time around. Members of the following guilds were in attendance:

- Partners N Crime
- Dark Archive
- K A R M A
- McRaging
- Shadow Sorcerors
- Elite Thievery Co.
- INFERNO
- Fortitudine Piratus
- Spania
- Outlaws!
- Team SvS
- Lion Hearted Pirate
- We Die Together
- Pixie Pyrates
- Hearts A Fire
- Tiki Lords
- Touch of Insanity
- Boss Buster Lords
- The Unfallen
- Rogues of Fortune
- The Sisters Clan
- Jessies Outlaws

And again, a special thank you to the Pirates and Founders Association for being represented in the event, as well as bestowing that honor upon me. Truly a great moment for me!

The summer may be over, but do not fret! We will still have events like these every few weeks or so, just keep your eye out for them. I also have big plans for Halloween down the line - so when the skies turn green in late October, keep your eyes out for a new event as well!

See you again real soon, pirates! Happy pirating!

Drink up me hearties, yo-ho

Wow... that was great, Del!!! These events really get guilds to know each other, not to mention that they are completely epic and fun! (hmm... my battle-cry "FOR SPAM AND RUM!!!" seemed to leave those spineskulls shaking in their boots! )
