Sealpocalypse Now: A'uk's Revenge

Story

The Sealpocalypse Now: A'uk's Revenge story as it appeared on the event tab of the notice board.

Transformation

All pirates were transformed into penguins. These penguins looked like penguin pets, except they wore hats and eye patches and carried fish skeletons. There were at least nine colors of penguin, with a pirate's usual hair color determining the color of penguin they became. (Lime penguins were very rare and may have been the result of a bug.)

Pirates could out opt by going to Ye > Options > General and disabling "special event effects." This would return the pirate to normal, although other pirates would still appear as penguins. Players who opted out could still participate in the team competition.

It was not possible to take a portrait while in penguin form.

Brigands, barbarians, and Imperial outpost soldiers were transformed into seals.

Competition

A Penguin Altar

Pirates in all oceans were divided into four teams - pirates from the same crew were all placed in the same team. The teams were each named after a penguin species. Pirates participated by defeating Imperial outposts or by assembling three artefact pieces into a whole artefact. The artefact pieces could be won from the outposts or from brigands and barbarians while pillaging. After winning a pillage battle, each pirate on the ship would win an artefact piece (which appeared as stackables in the "miscellaneous" section of the booty panel). Imperial outpost victories initially awarded three artefact pieces to each pirate, but this was changed during the event to give one, two, or three artefact pieces, depending on its difficulty. Pieces from three different artefacts could be won, and each artefact had three pieces.

Assembling artefacts
If a pirate had collected all three pieces from a single artefact, they could earn extra points for their team, and win trophies, by assembling the pieces into whole artefacts. Additionally, assembling three copies of a single artefact type would award the pirate a furniture item of that artefact.

On each ocean, an event pirate named Festivity had purchased a house and filled it with all sorts of holiday-themed furniture. The house contained a Penguin Altar which allowed pirates to assemble their artefacts. Clicking on the altar would bring up a dialog box. If a pirate did not have all of the pieces for an artefact, that artefact's "assemble" button would be greyed out.

Festivity's house could be whisked to using a button on the Events tab of the noticeboard. In addition, artefacts could be assembled at a location on or near the dock of the following islands:

The artefacts were assembled as follows:

During the course of the event, to help pirates in pillaging with their team-mates, all jobs on the notice board included the team icon of the crew offering the job. The standings for each team were regularly tallied and updated on a special "Competition!" tab of the notice board.

Furniture

For every three copies of an artefact type assembled, the player was awarded a tabletop furniture item of that type.

Each ancient tablet spawned with a random standard color for its cloth; the other two artefacts do not change color.
