Pirates Expose EITC Plot

For many weeks, Pirates have noted strange comings-and-goings by EITC agents,
with many suspicious swashbucklers speculating that the EITC is secretly smuggling
new weapons through their more exotic trade routes.

Marceline scouts confirm that the EITC Black Guard are indeed ferrying these new weapons into the Caribbean, landing on Cuba then transporting via a route over Isla Tormenta through Outcast Isle right to their bases on Padres del Fuego.

Find a member of the EITC Black Guard this weekend, and with the right persuasion, ye may possibly find yerself holding a new weapon!

Be on sharp lookout!
These Black Guard agents are stealthy and slick, with no guarantee you'll find one.
Keep an empty slot or two in yer Inventory just in case.
Our scouts report the EITC running their smuggling operations during these times:



WHEN:
Saturday, August 17: 3 – 4:30 pm
Sunday, August 18: 10 – 11:30 am

WHERE:
Padres del Fuego,
Outcast Isle,
Isla Tormenta and Cuba

* All times listed are Pacific Time

New weapons.
I'll keep that in mind when I show up for this.

Well, good to see something new with the EITC, I suppose. I would much prefer it'd be something like they did years back with the high amounts of EITC ships around Padres before it was blown to oblivion.

I'm just not sure if I like the idea of yet another "here's a free item!" thing.

Hmm, could it be an item that leads to another contest by any chance?

I've noticed that the enemy ships have patrol in different places for a month now even at Test. Started with a few oddballs and then as a fleet. Its rather amusing to have watch it develop and no one mentioning about it.

At first I thought they were going to do a redesign of Cuba, but I guess it's just more free items.

A GM Event- It's going to be my first.

Kinda strange that apparently "New" weapons giveaway happens right after a maintenance.

Can we actually expect NEW weapons?

Yes we will see a new weapon. It would explain the version update by '1'.

Could be either one. But the only time to get it is this weekend. So good luck finding them.

Let's hope that I may be lucky enough to find one. I'll post a screenshot if I do.

Edit: Whoop, and just when I'd thought it wouldn't be possible, I'd found one.
Though the weapon class isn't listed, it looks quite like a scimitar, but acts like a cutlass so far.
I've been given two (which I think everyone lucky enough to find one gets). The Viper's Kiss and the Desert Claw.

Yeah I got both. Just needed to ask for one and he gave it. No role play until the end where he states that we didn't get those weapons from him. lol, I played along by agreeing but then in the end I told him he would have to give me another if he wants me to stay silent. I never got another since I had both of them already and he never said anything back.

Funny thing is on my way out of Cuba, I looked behind me and there he was. rofl he probably was trying to give me a third but couldn't. Then he disappeared.

Huh. If I only had their picture, I wouldn't be able to distinguish between dagger or sword.

Well. Honestly I didn't actually expect them to hand out new new weapons when I saw that article, but I'm surprised. Good timing, too; I just got UA yesterday because I hate not being able to wear my clothes. I guess I'll be out GM hunting tomorrow morning...

And congrats to those who got the blades! ...I'm jealous, honestly. I better get them myself tomorrow

Just a side note, they kind of look like this sword in the loading screen.

Huh, yeah, that's right - I forgot about that. Although knowing Disney, I feel like it's more of a coincidence than an intentional hint. But you never know!
