In the first release of the World of Dreams, in August 2018, the Royals at KingsIsle introduced Four new Nightmare Boss battles. These battles are intensely difficult and designed for top-level players and as team up opportunities. Captain Blood is one of these nightmare challenges.
Pirates first face off with Captain Blood in the Haunted Skyway on the isle of Miranda. During one of my favorite puppet shows, the Dead Man’s Hand, Pirates learn about Blood’s last request from his death bed, to play a hand of poker with Death. Having a gambling problem, Death agrees.
In the final hand, Blood raises the stakes and wagers his immortal soul. Death of course agrees, that’s when Blood cheats. Death placed his cards on the table, but Blood left the table and never came back to play his hand. Now the game is in a state of Limbo. The result is, it’s your quest is to find all the cards dealt to Blood, along with the bones of his lost hand. With his own hand, you will be able to lay the cards on the table at the Old Sippin’ Saloon in Miranda and send Blood into Death’s domain. Of course once you have played Blood’s hand, you must defeat Blood before his soul can be sent on its way with Death. Continue reading →
The crew and I have continued our adventures through the Skull Island Skyway. After acquiring our new ship, the Grand Garnet, we sailed to Flotsam to attain some information for the Frog Father about the Rat Pack. Seems this pack of rats are trying to move in on his territory and he’s asked for our help to find out who’s behind these deeds.
While we’re looking for more information about the RatPack, we’re also picking up clues concerning Ratbeard and Captain Gunn’s treasure for Avery back in Skull Island proper. Continue reading →
What a journey this has been! Kobe and I left our island home of Hamamitsu Garden and traveled aboard a cargo ship bound for Skull Island. We arrived during an uprising and the town was in the midst of being shelled. But we managed to attain an audience with the local Governor, a man named Captain Avery.
We tried to gain information from him about my birth parents in our search to discover where I initially came from. Surprisingly Avery knew my parents and shared an even bigger surprise; I have a sister! Her name is Scarlet and she too had come to Skull Island for information about her… well our, parents. I think I’m going to like her already. Continue reading →
The weather is a cold 27° F with partly cloudy skies. The wind is from the north to north-west, at 13.6 knots, and gusts around 20 knots. Our highest gust was 23.5 knots around 13:30. Humidity 32%, Pressure 30.3 and holding steady. Our temperature tonight is looking like it will be down around 15° F.
It’s terribly cold for sky sailing! Thank goodness it’s dry for now. We had to check in with Lady Bug over on her Isle of Weather. From her tower she indicated that skies are clouding up and heading our way. Snow is possible in a few days.
Consequently the crew and I are considering taking some shore leave here in Port Regal for a little while. Especially since it was a bit of a journey getting here. Continue reading →
The crew and I continued our questing through Cool Ranch and specifically the Big Sky Skyway. We headed off to the Dusty Cave to meet with Bat Masterson and pick up some silver to take down the Duck of Death.
Of course that means doing a favor for a favor. Bat asked us to take care of some Bloodbats who have infested his mine. But we discovered a bit more was going on down there. There seems to be deeper dangers than what ole Bat thought.
Sure enough we encountered an old crazy miner, Old Bird Jenkins who was actually trying to train those bats to scare off Bat and his crew, so he could have the mine to himself. Say what? Continue reading →
Ahoy Log Book. It’s been a little while since I have recorded the travels of me crew and I along the sparkling lanes of the wind. So here we be with pen in hand and a few scribbles of our adventures, argh!
Ok..enough of that. We’ve been traveling through Cool Ranch and we’re presently looking for the Duck of Death. It’s been a long journey through this hot desert like world. And we’ve had some interesting encounters with villains, town folk and distressed damsels, animal spirits and more. Continue reading →
