On June 2nd, they originated the ACP Convention, a new war convention.[1]

On June 17th, ACP dropped a warchest at the end of Round 2 of Amity II, after noticing that both the defenders and the attackers were not yet on the board after 15 minutes of Round 2 had passed. ACP prepped, speed sailed ships, and had war brigs on the blockade board in roughly 30 minutes for the beginning of round 3. This included moving stock and ships from as far away as Wensleydale. ACP won Round 3 by over 100 points, but narrowly lost Round 4 in the final minutes. ACP was the first flag to perform a round 2 drop on Sage Ocean, and they posted a post-blockade statement in Sage Parley shortly after the blockade ended. [2]

On June 20th, ACP Declared war on Seven Seas Council. At 2:30 AM Pirate time the next morning, Seven Seas Council Disbanded.

On July 31st, Igniknot stepped down as monarch, and Fannon became interim monarch. She led the flag until August 8th when Tortie was elected as Queen of the flag.

On September 10th, Itsacon and his crew, Buy Me a Pint, joined Armed Cocktail Party as the third installment to the shindig.

Monthly Events

As Queen, Tortie created a series of monthly events. These were designed to entertain her own flag, but were also open to participation from the ocean as a whole.

  • September's event was the Campaign for Literacy on Sage. During the month, Campaign supporters sought out and declared war on any crew or flag with badly-written public statements. Note that this was not a campaign against foreign players, but a campaign against those who speak English fluently and choose to use chatspeak.
ADMIRAL Isl., Sept. 1 /YPPNewswire/ -- Armed Cocktail Party (OTC BB: POE.OB) ("ACP") today announced its Campaign for Literacy on Sage. "We have had enough of incoherent flag and crew statements," commented Tortie, ACP's Queen and CEO. "What good is it being Queen, if nobody speaks the Queen's English? We are today declaring war on any flag which has itself declared war on grammar and spelling." ACP announced its intention to declare war on every flag which is incapable of expressing itself coherently, either in its flag statement, or through those of its constituent crews.
"This Campaign will last throughout the month of September," said Queen Tortie. "War will continue against the offending illiterate flags unless and until they give us the satisfaction of correct written English or we receive tribute." Industry sources indicated that sufficient tribute would entail furniture to outfit a remedial schoolhouse for the illiterate, such as a desk, globe, or chair. Queen Tortie further invited other flags to join the Campaign for Literacy on Sage.
Asked for comment, pillage industry analyst Literate Clyde noted, "This is a bold, and, frankly, long overdue move for a flag in ACP's industry sector. Of course, those not native English speakers will not be subject to any penalty."
Headquartered on Admiral Island, Armed Cocktail Party does business in the Sage Ocean through its wholly-owned offshore subsidiaries, On the Rocks and Shaken Not Stirred.
