    You find a message in a bottle...


    Citizens of Britannia! I beg of thee, please come to my aid! As I returned to my hunting lodge following a long hunt, I discovered my home has been taken over by a brigade of Pirates! While trying to drive the dirty swashbuckling scum from my cabin, I was badly wounded. Luckily I found a nearby Ranger camp where I am recovering from my injuries. I fear that if I do not return to my home soon, there may be nothing left as it may soon collapse or be destroyed! The entire peninsula has been over run with pirates and their dastardly beasts!


    Please! On Saturday, May 23rd at 2PM EASTERN time....join me as I make my final push to take back my beloved Waterfront Cabin!

    This offense against a fine citizen of Britannia must not stand! Send the curs back to the sea where they belong!

    Llarrs awoke from his slumbers at the ranger camp reveling in the feeling of at last being pain free, those Rangers really do know how to heal wounds.
    He thought back to his missive he launched into the waters on his maniacal retreat from those dastardly pirates. "I hope someone has found my message in a bottle yeah."
    He thought about his own stupidity in not trusting the banks of Sosaria, and only trusting his odd gold pieces to those Shylock's at the bank.
    He's always wanted his prized possessions close to hand where he could admire them.
    His Anniversary Clothing that was too good to be worn while he hunted in the Wildermere Wilds, His Prized Blaze Jewelry, and the various rares he had accumulated over the past few years, "oh No, my Plat stashes too, I should have been more organised and trusting of those bankers."
    Those wonderful sea views his private fishing spots that had provided soo well for him. He missed the waves lapping gently as he woke. The cabin had always provided such a fantastic respite when he returned from his hunting or fishing trips. He'd had a pretty profitable life in the wilds, fishing for Amibs, farming Plat from the various beasties that inhabit the wilds.
    Now everything was at risk thanks to those Dastardly Pirates who have taken over the peninsular he called home. He'd been away too long this time and knew that the weather would be playing havoc with his lovely log cabin, without his constant care and repairs his home would be In Danger Of Collapsing soon.
    He hoped that many would answer the call to help him reclaim his house at 2pm EST Saturday 23rd May 2020, they would be needed as the Pirates looked to be firmly entrenched as Llarrs had run for his life.
    As He reminisced at the Ranger camp he was reminded why he no longer used pets as they could never stay on target round these parts, too many beasties would always distract them and most of the time he'd lost them before finishing his hunts.
    Oh please he prayed that his message had been found.

    The medicines the Rangers had provided made him feel drowsy and he faded off to sleep once more hoping he'd remembered to include as many timezones for the famed adventures of the land to find him and help him with his quest.

    The naturalists will be there.

    We may try to sail there from the Drunken Stag.

    If not we will meet at the ranger camp outside Vesper.

    The Knights of Stormhold will offer their full support to deal with the trouble.

    Thank you for reaching out to us, as we hope to archive peace in the North Vesper region and stay well connected to our neighbors.

    Bump. Even if real world BS is working to ruin someone's fun, I hope it doesn't ruin yours.

    Vienna sends her love to the other naturalists. She hopes to see you all soon.

    Edit: grammar

    Lincecum is @twarf on the forums.

    I believe Camdan is @k1w1uk but that may be wrong.

    I managed to grab a few random bags with some shiny pirate loot before some more experienced IDOCers chased me off. The whole event was awesome! I've never done anything with the player pirates before so that was a really fun/different challenge (especially with a provo dexxer, hah!). Thanks to everyone who donated/ran this one.

    The pirate/summer event stuff has all been really fun and kept me more active than I probably would be right now; kudos to those involved!
