Ostreum is a medium island located in the Pearl Archipelago. There are three known routes from the island: Zeta Island, Frond Island, and an inter-archipelago route to Wrasse Island in the Emerald Archipelago.
Ostreum II — 2005-02-26, Black Sheep Brigade dropped a chest on Ostreum. Notorious Fandango dropped a chest during the middle of round 2, winning rounds 3 and 4, but losing round 5. Notorious Fandango also finished with more points than other faction in round 2, but game mechanics prevented them from being listed as a contender until round 3. Thus, Ragnarok won rounds 2 and 5 and successfully defended the island.
Note: Notorious Fandango initially attempted to drop the war chest during round 1 but the war chest was unexpectedly rejected as it was outside the normal war chest drop window. Until then, it was generally expected that secondary war chest drops during a blockade will be accepted regardless of the timing. This was echoed by the Ringers, which led to Cleaver ruling that the original war chest attempt will not be accepted but he made Notorious Fandango a contender in time for round 3. (This is the origin of the now defunct joke "Fandango will drop a chest in Round Two")
2005-7-04 — Ostreum is converted from an outpost to a medium island.
Ostreum IV— 2005-07-17, Overwhelming jobber support for Superlemon Krakatoa, coupled with a smaller showing from Phoenix Reborn, helped Superlemon Krakatoa take Ostreum. Phoenix Reborn did not defend round 3.
Ostreum V— 2006-02-04, Notorious Fandango defeated Superlemon Krakatoa in a sinking blockade that lasted for 3 rounds. Superlemon Krakatoa did not contest the blockade at all, due to real-life issues.
Ostreum VI—2006-03-12, Ragnarok, the first ever flag to hold Ostreum, attempted to regain control of it. Notorious Fandango managed to defend the island, although the first round was very close. Superlemon Krakatoa took in a single warbrig during the last two rounds, joining in the fray, but no chest was dropped.
Ostreum VII—2006-03-18 Superlemon Krakatoa defeated Notorious Fandango to retake control of the island. The Lemons had a larger jobbing force, despite the fact that Fandango paid jobbers while SLK offered only a raffle. They won the first two rounds with at least 300 points difference each time. The third round was not contested by Notorious Fandango.
Ostreum IX—2007-2-18 Phobos Et Deimos attacked Elysian Fields. The defenders outjobbed the attackers leading them to win rounds 1 and 2 and made the blockade sinking in round 3. Phobos Et Deimos pulled jobbers over from simultaneous Park Island and Orca Island blockades that had basically wrapped up and were able to take round 3. Elysian Fields came back for the win in round 4.
Ostreum X—2007-2-25 Phobos Et Deimos attacked Elysian Fields again, this time winning the island. Elysian Fields won the first two rounds, then pulled out for the most part due to low number of ships.
Ostreum XVI - 2010-7-18, Barnabas the Pale's forces successfully defended the island against two attackers - Fallen and Tyr's Own.
Ostreum XVIII - 2010-8-08, Fallen defeated Barnabas the Pale to take control of the island.
Ostreum XIX - 2011-10-30, The Widow Queen defeated Fallen in three rounds to take control of the island.
