Trophy-Gilded Egg.png Pirate Artist
Contributed in-game art by Shortyjack

Shortyjack is an old salt starting her story on Midnight Ocean, before it became Cerulean. She is also an avatar artist, as well as the creator of an award-winning egg design.


Midnight story

Shortyjack started playing Puzzle Pirates in November 2004. She was an independent pirate for a few months before eventually being dockpressed in the crew Daring Death under the flag Dark Judgement. Eventually, she made her way to the crew Scarlet Star under the leadership of Pogo. Once the crew gained sufficient fame, the crew was invited to join Dark Judgement and they welcomed her back with open arms.

During her time spent in Dark Judgement, Shortyjack became known as the event planner for the flag, which eventually gave her a royalty spot. She helped with the progress of construction on Lagniappe Island as well as the development of the flag. After the retirement of Squeakbeard, king of Dark Judgement, she took over as queen for a time. She stepped down after a few months, before the flag disbanded. After the disband, Shortyjack was part of the flag Crimson Tide for a short time before becoming a member of Nub Sauce under the leadership of Springheel. Nub Sauce was eventually changed to Declaration of War under the leadership of Dchow. After mates settled under the new flag name, things once changed under the leadership of Gauntlet. At the end of 2008, most of the crews under Declaration of War merged into the flag Folie Circulaire under the leadership of Dchow. In 2009, once again the flag was changed to Bipolar under the leadership of good hearty Donsmythe. She still watches over the economy of Lagniappe Island, as well as chatting to old mates from Dark Judgement and Crimson Tide.

By late 2008, real life started to take more time away from the game. This caused Shortyjack to basically retire from the social and political part of the game.

Cobalt story

Shortyjack always occasionally logged onto Cobalt when it opened, but never seriously played there. She would take her labor poe and create events which eventually lead to the meeting of several well-known Cobalt hearties. They would join in on the fun and create large tournaments at random.

Since forming a partnership with Gothmog, she can be seen playing more actively on Cobalt since summer 2009. She plans to help the flag Oceanus Expeditus succeed in their goals. In early December 2009, she helped Oceanus Expeditus succeed in winnning Carmine Island through a puzzling event. She now helps the flag run the island.

She plans to help with fundraising for the flag as well as hosting flag events. She plans to help hold island events in order to increase business on the island.

Obsidian story (Dark Seas)

In September of 2017, Shortyjack returned to the game after a seven year hiatus. She brought along several old salts to return. She currently resides in Victorious Secret. She stated interest in running in game events once she has the coffers to do so. Her other plans are unknown.

Outer ocean story

On the forums, Shorty_Jack is known as a popular avatar artist. She was even asked to be a participating member in the event Avatars for Arrtists. Shortyjack is also aspiring to become a well-known event planner. She has hosted a few events, but is planning to get into larger ocean-wide/across all ocean events in the near future. This has caused her to become very active in the social puzzle. Pirates can see her daily docktarting on Alpha Island or Dragon's Nest.

In early 2007, Shortyjack started talking to a particular pirate named Gothmog. At the Pittsburgh Party June 2007 meetup, she was able to meet him in person. Shortyjack and Gothmog have since formed an inseparable relationship. She has also met several good hearties at this meetup. She also has attended the Dallas Meetup May 2008. In May/June 2009, Shortyjack along with the help of Gothmog and Annaleese, hosted the very first North Carolina meetup. The party was considered a success and is in the process of planning a second meetup to take place June 2010.

In September 2009, Gothmog made an interesting post that showed the engagement to Shortyjack in the real life couples thread. In 2012, Gothmog and Shortyjack finalized their union where several fellow pirates attending their wedding. In 2014, they welcomed their first son and in 2015, their second son.
