Tempest Box Promotion

During the Tempest Box Promotion, players will receive a "mystery box" gift with purchases of $9.99 or more made between 10:00 AM PDT June 26, 2020 and 3:00 PM PDT July 6, 2020. This promotion is open to players using whichever payment method they prefer (including credit card, Paypal, and Paymentwall, and checks and money orders). Purchases of either doubloons or subscription during the promotion period are eligible. You can be certain that your purchase qualifies if an image of a Tempest Box shows up next to your chosen package on the subscription or doubloon billing page when you go to make your purchase.

Your mystery gift will be redeemable on any one pirate associated with your account. If you made your qualifying purchase while logged in to the game, you may need to log out and back on again for it to appear. Available mystery gift items include...

  • Ghost Monkey
  • Sea Green Octopus
  • Sea Green, Sea Green Parrot
  • Sloop Mark II entirely Sea Green
  • Rumjug Pet
  • Ruffian Barrel

In addition to the mystery gift, every participant of the Tempest Box Promotion will also receive a commemorative "Beach Curiosity" trophy!

* The painted ships will be bestowed as a "sealed deed" item which can be used from your pirate's inventory to cause the prize ship's deed to appear. The prize ship will be docked at your home island. LE-Painted ships are standard ships, and thus do not have a special "Limited Edition" icon on their dock/vessel image.
