The Cheruscan Scroll is a black scroll that is being passed around the Midnight Ocean courtesy of the crew Keel Appeal, collecting the names of those pirates who are lucky enough to have encountered it on its travels. The purpose of this event is to promote the use of the YPPedia and fellowship amongst pirates from different crews and flags.
