  • We will be doing some internal testing of an upcoming Team Competition this afternoon, though you are free to participate while it's active. We'll have all the details for you next week.
    • Remember, what happens on Ice stays on Ice!


  • Building and Vessel deeds are now divided into collapsible groups in the booty (like the Trinket section).
  • Added player-designed Winter trinkets.


  • The "Manage Jobbers" panel that pops up when clicking the navigation wheel has been updated to strip wacky characters from the mission statement. Certain characters were causing an error on the client when it tried to display a job invite notice panel.
  • The bracelets on the male Kraken Tattoo clothing have been updated to match the belt color.
  • Added the latest portrait background winners.
  • Added the December LE ship, which is undergoing internal testing.

  • Added more trinket subgroups in the booty display, as discussed in the Ice forum.
  • The currently displayed trinket can once again be clicked to remove it.


  • Trinkets are now divided into subgroups in the booty display. This is intended to help pirates who have really big booties.


  • Adding a "Go Home" button for Rowboats
  • Fixed bug that caused Kraken treasure clusters to sometimes extend outside the board, resulting in half a whirlpool


  • Players who get disconnected and "blackscreened" should now auto-transition back into the Kraken instance.
