water-mole-pirateOur Trivia Question

Tribes of Water Moles dwell across Skull Island, living in
their humble villages and plying the Skyways in their canoes.
There are two bands of Water Mole tribes.
Name both tribal bands.

The Answer

Tribes of Water Moles
The two largest tribes that remain have responded to changing
times in very different ways:

The Nui: Residents of Rapa Nui, the Nui tribe are peaceful –
they trade with everyone. Jovial and friendly, the Nui are
well-liked by traders and Pirates alike.

The Waponi: The silver-haired Water Moles who dwell at the
foot of the great volcano Waponi Wu have renounced their
traditional ways. Their blood feuds with the Nui are ancient
and legendary, but their hostility toward everybody
else is no less intense.

Congratulations Captains!!
We’ve sent you an email with your game code and instructions for how to redeem the code online. If you don’t receive the email or have problems, please let us know.

Today’s Winners
Captain Wobbly Matthew Inglewood
Captain Fearless Katie Jackson

Captain Scarlet Hawkins – Ships Log 416607.12

captnlog-sh-fcQuesting News From The Spiral

News from Cool Ranch.

The crew and I have been traveling the Cool Ranch skyways for several weeks and there’s two things we have learned that are worth sharing.

First, there’s a specific order one should travel through the many towns and destinations. My sister in arms, Victoria Bristol, sent word that she tried to tackle one skyway before completing the one she was initially in and it was a disaster for her crew. It’s important to level up your skills and that of your crew and to complete as many of the quests in one skyway before heading off to another.

I hear A Pirate’s Portal has put a hold on updates to the Cool Ranch Quest Journal and have been preparing some rewrites. In the meantime, the crew and I have been battling through some tough battles through Big Sky and the other Skyways in Cool Ranch. Continue reading
