A Strange Encounter

News Post Image

Ahoy there mates,

Forgive me if me handwritin’ be lookin’ a bit sloppy.  Ye see, at the moment I am shakin’ in me boots, fearin’ for me life.  Two days ago I came face to face with… well, I don’t even know what to call that thing.  Listen to me story and ye be the judge.

The Caribbean has been frustratingly quiet lately.  I swear it’s so empty that I’ve seen a few tumbleweeds rollin’ around.  So imagine me surprise when some cloaked bloke docks his ship on Port Royal and starts strollin’ into town.  I was interested in eavesdroppin’ so- I mean, bein’ the concerned and loyal citizen that I am, I decided to follow him just to make sure that he wasn't up to anythin’ fishy.  This was me first mistake.

He walked into the graveyard that I’ve always avoided with a passion due to the animated bags of bones that lingered in there.  Those guys were always so angry.  The mysterious man reached into his cloak and retrieved a staff.  The attention of the undead was fully on him.  They didn't seem like they were interested in attackin’ him, they just stood there and stared (that’s a first).

The man began to cast a spell.  I heard an ominous clap of thunder comin’ from the skies which had tinted into a poisonous green color.  The winds had begun to pick up and fog was startin’ to appear.  I stood there captivated yet horrified.  Just as the thick fog hid the man from me line of sight, a gust of wind knocked off the cloak that covered his head, exposin’ his grotesque face to me.  

I was stunned.  I staggered backwards and tripped over me own two feet.  I could have sworn that the man noticed me presence and snapped his head in me direction.  This is the moment in which I hopped on the nope-not-today galleon and ran out of there.  

As I made me escape, I noticed the cold fog gushin’ toward me and slitherin’ its way down the slopes.  A few more gallops ahead I lost me breath and I wanted to have one last look at the monstrous gloom that was about to be me demise - but alas, it suddenly ebbed all the way back faster than I could blink me eyes!

I tried to forget about this encounter, but this mornin’ Port Royal, Tortuga, and Padres Del Fuego received a lil’ anonymous gift that kicked the creepy to a whole new level.  On the docks abandoned boats with wood and various empty barrels were found.  All 3 ships had a letter with the same message written on ‘em: “You’ll be needing these soon”.

This is what cemented me belief that somethin’ terrible be comin’, and what I saw only be a test of some sort by the dark powers that lie in wait.  Now mates, if ye need me ye can find me on the high seas as I sail me way over to England.

Stay safe me hearties.

    If the beta is released on Christmas, it will be the single best Christmas gift most of us will have ever received.

    Having this available over winter break would probably be the most beneficial in terms of bug reports and users getting online that have keys, since lots of people will be available.
