When Rogues of Sage took control of Admiral island, an election was held to appoint the new governor. After several discussions on applicants, Ptolemy was appointed governor . During his administration, the following buildings were dusted in order to address the overbuilding of the island:
- The Keg and I (distillery)
- Sloopspotting (shipyard)
- Beauty And The Brig (shipyard)
- Forrest Rum (distillery)
During the Passive Aggression administration, the shipyard Frigates of the Caribbean was dusted and replaced with Frigates of the Caribbean II (which was later renamed Anchorman). This was done to improve the island's building set up since the first shipyard was located near the beach .
After a fair few blockades, in which control shifted among pirate and BK flags, Admiral Island was finally seized by Illium Eternae in October 2010. It has since been controlled by:

Admiral CVI, 2015-07-04: Black Dawn Brigade took back Admiral from the BK in a three-round blockade; No Offence Intended also dropped, but failed to seriously contend.
