Riggie is captain and tactician of the crew Shanghaied and a unofficial prince of the flag Notorious. He can be found sailing the Sage Ocean. He is also a member of United Pillagers Across Sage, Hunters of Brigand Kings on Sage, and Flotilla Hunters of Sage.
Riggie started out his piratical career sometime around December 2005 with a brief stay in Volfan's Family, moving quickly to Demonic Wolves where he spent much of his time puzzling up his stats and learning from Mrchuckles. Then one fortunate day Riggie took a jobbing stint with Greed's Ambassadors where he was made a fleet officer and within a few days became a senior officer.
When Blackvixey left Greed's Ambassadors to form Defenders of Truth, Riggie took on many of her duties including crew training, promotions and being an executive officer for Grumbler on pillages. During the summer of 2006, Riggie became the full time captain of Greed's Ambassadors as real life claimed much of Grumbler's time. During this period Riggie also became a prince of Notorious and unofficially holds the post of Minister of the Interior and Lead event Runner.
Following Notorious' successful blockade of Caravanserai Island, Notorious was kind enough to construct a crew shop for Greed's Ambassadors due to their continuing efforts for the flag, who selected a weavery to be called Dream Weaver. Riggie upgraded the shop a few weeks after it opened as a gift to the crew and has put in many hours soloing commodities and raw material around since the shop started. Since that time Riggie has been drawn heavily into the merchanting side of YPP and currently manages various shops and stalls, much to the dismay of crewmates looking to pillage.
In May 2007, Grumbler returned to the captaincy of Greed's and Riggie returned to being senior officer again. Shortly after retaking command of the crew, Grumbler moved Greed's to Verus Fidelitas to rejoin his long time friend Blackvixey. Due to his heavy involvement in events being run in Notorious at the time, Riggie left Greed's Ambassadors and joined Shanghaied, a new crew formed by Burninator, where many of the former Greed's Ambassadors senior officers had already gone.
Following the Kiwara PVP/GF Giveaway Event hosted by Passive Aggression (and won by Burninator), Riggie was made governor of Kiwara Island, and his governorship began on Nov 26, 2007 and ended May 4, 2008 when Shadows of Sage took over as owners of Kiwara.
In the spring of 2008, Riggie began to step away from YPP due to increasing RL activities. While not officially retired from the game, he still enjoys battling flotillas and doing his part in the Ibis arch economy.
Riggie was the principle organizer of the Notorious First Birthday/Early Christmas events.
Riggie was also one of the voices behind "Coalition", the King of Sage Needs a Large during the first OM Choose your own Island event and was heavily involved in the behind the scenes work for SNL. SNL Final post
Riggie posted times of 52 and 53 mins in the Great Familiar Race held in January 2008, tying for 4th and 5th overall on Sage.
