Ty :D

    • IrieEyes**(SweetSouthernCaliRose*ChronicStar)... don't ya wish ya knew me? Rosie82@cox.net
  • Ruffmonster on all oceans (exept Ice).I know it is for crafting puzzles but I think there should be a fishing puzzle. Also we should have a puzzle where you deliver stuff like cannon bals,rum,ect... There could also be different types of poker instead of just one we could have black jack(21),Blind man's bluff and other poker favorites. Another possible puzzle would be challenging people to things like sailing, carpentry, bilge pumping on a ship and in a stall/shop you could challenge tham to a crafting puzzle. We should have a tug of war puzzle to that. All these ideas would be awesome to me at least.
  • Mandalay on Viridian ocean. Tons of ideas for relevant games that actually have something to do with the pirating world. Was a game tester, so I understand the limitations of implementing certain aspects of gameplay.

SarahAnn44 (Sarahannm on the midnight ocean): I have an idea for weaving. You have a set of balls to represent the cloth. You need to line up certain patterns. you can move a row up and down or side to side to match it up, sort of like you can move rubics cube. It could start off simple with only two or three colors and work its way up to six colors.

  • Rhulenn (Rhulenn on Midnight): I have ideas for several of the puzzles, including weaving, tailoring and ironworking. Please see my page user:Rhulenn for details.

Kilraven (Kilraven on Cobalt): I know that pirates have their own codes, especially when it came to passing written orders (some knew how to write?), well, I like to do cryptograms and mental puzzles of similar ilk. need more info, or you want to talk...come to dragon's nest and look around the inn...you can find me there (usually playing poker (or losing at it))...

  • Username:santiaboy Pirate: Santiss on hunter ocean I have an idea for contruction, contact me on the hubter ocean, im almost all day connected


If you've got coding skills and want to help out with the implementation of these ideas, add your name here. If you'd like to, include a link to a page which describes your skills and background in coding - on your userpage, or a sub-page to your userpage would be a good spot for it.
