Ahoy, matey! Lest ye be fergettin'... Gunpowder Mary be holdin' yer 2019 Talk Like a Pirate Day collection. Gear up before we hoist the sail and embark on a perilous journey to the ninja-infested Yokai Isle!
This is a real holiday! It takes place on September 19th each year and on this day, for the whole day, you're supposed to talk like a pirate. (Or be walk'n the plank, har har!) It was created by John Baur (Ol' Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap'n Slappy), of Albany, Oregon. Yup. We be mighty grateful to them for it.
Little known fact: We were the first video game studio ever to celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day in a game. Was it 2003 or 2004 when we started? Captain Rhubarb was drawn by Oishii for the 1st one. We've been doing it every year since.
The winners of last Friday the 13th's Pirate vs Ninja war is.... The Pirate Cabin! You (and all players) can head to camp and get the winning team's "Pirate Back Flag" item.
Hurry, the camp will fade back into the shadow soon... which reminds me, you should beat our 1st survival horror dungeon if you haven't done so already.
Th' collection features three amazin' piratical sets crafted by Dage The Evil, as well as two pets (Shiver Me Whiskers and Davy Bones), two weapons and a Blade of the Deep travel form! Ye will also be obtainin' th' "PRIVATEER" rare title and badge with yer collection!
