Scouts are reporting that an unusually large and organized force of Orcs appear to be getting ready to march on the Skara Brae farmlands. The local militia has been warned and they expect to make first contact with the enemy around 8pm EST on Friday 5/29/2020. Multiple attacks are projected to occur within 48 hours of that start time.

Is it food their after? Are they seeking to simply occupy the farmlands to make future attacks into Skara Brae easier?

Maybe there will be clues on some of the enemy corpses?

Alright - These are the 8 clues that dropped. Who has some guesses as to what is going to happen this weekend?

No idea, other than a lot of boats. Serp's Hold, Trinsic, New Haven all located around that Pillar. Could be an assault on the cities. On the opposite side is Papua.

Maybe just an epic Naval Battle though, since we are told to collect all the cannon supplies and the pillar is going to provide rubble deco.

(NOTICE: Any boats found within 15 tiles of any Serpent Pillar will be moved until after the event, once it starts)

Report to the New Haven docks @ 10am EST on Saturday (6/6/2020) and again @ 7pm EST on Sunday (6/7/2020) and meet up with Tasanar the Fleet Admiral. He has been appointed by Lord Blackthorn to lead both assaults on the Plunderbeacons. He will also lead the fleet to the suspected location of the boat/lumber yard.

The Royal Britannian Navy, acting on clues found during last weekend's assault, came across eight Plunderbeacons, four on each side, laying siege to both sides of the Serpents Pillar in Trammel.

There is further scout information that points to a boat/lumber yard being constructed by the orcs, in the Lost Lands.


Lord Blackthorn will be awarding those who assist in the Plunderbeacon battles with "membership" into the Royal Britannian Navy.
(Tabard (in the screen shot above) with your name on it, no stats)

Those with well-provisioned and armed Galleons could be made Captains if they do well in battle!
(Same Tabard with your name on it and the title of "Captain" applied.

Galleons are needed to fight the Plunderbeacons. If you do not have access to a Galleon Tasanar will take you on his. Though it will have cannons supplies will be limited.

Once the event starts the boat/lumber yard can be farmed all weekend for various items and clues as to what will happen next.

Now that we have broken through the blockade we learn the Orcs have set up shop at what appears to be a shipbuilding center. We want this center destroyed by 8pm EST on Sunday.

Take out these Orc Shipbuilders. I hear they may have a unique treasure.

Gather the clues and let us know what might happen next!

            "... allow us to appear anywhere at sea!"
These were the clues from the last Orc event.

Conclusion of this event coming this weekend.

Saturday and Sunday - Starts @ noon EST on Saturday and will be shutoff @ 10 pm EST on Sunday.

Help us fight back a mighty orcish invasion force on the beach and sea near Vesper.

Players will be able to collect "signal flares" and deposit them into the Signal Cannon, on the beach, to ambush Plunder Beacons on the coast. Various Orc event items handed out during this event cycle could make one last appearance.

Orcish Marines, Orcish Marine Captains, Orcish Mages, and Orc Ship Builders will soon be assaulting the beach south of Vesper.

On them is a chance to drop a Signal Flare.
Orcish Marine = 5%
Orcish Marine Captain = 10%
Orc Ship Builders = 20%

Dropping 5 Signal Flares into the flare cannon, on this makeshift dock, will summon a Plunderbeacon close by. Only one plunder beacon can be spawned at a time.

Besides the signal flare, this will be one of the last times to collect the Orcish Marine Robes, Orc Ship Builder Half Aprons, and Orc Ship models.

This event starts on 7/25 @ 12 noon EST Saturday and ends on Sunday 7/26 @ 10pm EST.
