Purity of Essence was an experiment in blockade technique, tactic, and training. While PoE was nominally on the Sage Ocean, they would gladly visit any other sea where someone genuinely wants to learn how to make with the boomy.


PoE started out of a nuclear idea between co-conspirators Looseweed and Minalesca: a PM was sent, the wheels went into overdrive, and mere hours later they had a crew of 20 people. The flag have already participated in several blockades on the Sage ocean, and are still actively recruiting and/or poaching interested parties.

Public Statement

Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Blockade.

Extended Public Statement

General Jack D. Ripper:

"Mandrake, do you recall what Clemenceau once said about war?"

Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake:

"No, I don't think I do, sir, no."

General Jack D. Ripper:

"He said war was too important to be left to the generals. When he said that, 50 years ago, he might have been right. But today, war is too important to be left to politicians. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought. I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids!"





Extended Extended Public Statement

The fundamental flaw in the design of Puzzle Pirates is that you can't win a blockade without experience, and you can't get experience without blockading.

Purity of Essence is a contract blockade flag, providing any and all services necessary to plan, orchestrate, and implement a blockade, from concept to conclusion. Clueless and want to attack someone? Hire us, and we'll do the whole thing for you. Want to defend your island, but you're busy and don't have the time? We've got plenty. Got an idea what you're doing, but need some supplementary talent? We'll provide it. Have a target in mind, and need an evaluation of your flag's resources? We'll give it to you. Need a fleet floated? Got it. Vice Admiral just got banned with 4 hours until go-time? We'll provide a substitute. Need help coordinating a 6 way multiflag simuldrop on cross ocean targets? :) You get the idea.

Purity of Essence has three years of blockade experience, dating back to Papaya 2 on Midnight. With literally hundreds of blockades logged by our administrative staff, we've seen it all, we know what works, and what won't. We can provide Admirals, Vice Admirals, Navigators, Jobbing Contacts, XOs, and other essential blockade staff at all levels of command, and can easily integrate any of your own flagmates into the mix for the blockade. Not only that, we stress training as a #1 priority of our operations, so you as a new blockader can get the EXPERIENCE YOU NEED to continue to be successful. On top of it all, we provide a sexy Youtube Blockade Music Video to go with every POE operation, to be used in propaganda efforts, free of charge.

So what's the charge? Nothing. The whole thing is free to anyone who asks for it. We work on any server, any date, any time, and we do it because we love blockades, and we want YOU to love them too.

Remember, we WROTE THE BOOK on blockades:
