The Tale of Skeleton Island!

Learn the untold history of Jack Sparrow and Jolly Roger!

 Jolly Roger was a merciless soul, but the Brethren Court was able to find use of his dark and malicious talents. Jolly was their henchman, performing unsavory deeds whenever the Court didn't want to soil their hands or tarnish their own reputations. For his service, Jolly believed that one day, he'd be granted a seat on the prestigious Court - something he desired more than life itself. Jolly and Jack Sparrow had been close friends, long ago, and he was always envious of Jack's uncanny luck. As Jack's reputation and infamy grew, so did Jolly's resentment. So when Captain Teague left the Court and passed along his seat to his son, Jack Sparrow, Jolly vowed to take revenge.

 

Knowing Jack was a card lover, Jolly invited him to a friendly game of poker. Knowing he was tactically outmatched, Jolly knew he'd have to cheat to win so he conspired with a villainous Witch Doctor to deal the cards. Jolly won hand after hand until eventually Jack was out of both tricks, and money. Then, just as Jolly had hoped, Jack bet his seat on the Brethren Court for one, last hand. The Witch Doctor dealt Jolly a full house - Sixes over Fours. By now Jack knew he was being cheated so he plucked an Ace from his sleeve and presented a Full House too - Aces over Jacks. Realizing he'd been beaten, Jolly drew his sword and broke into a fiery rage, knocking over the table. Just as Jack lunged from his chair to make his escape, the Witch Doctor began cackling in a twisted and grotesque manner as Jolly's flesh began to disappear from his body as he wailed out in agony, ultimately being transformed from a once proud sailor into a skeletal monster.

POR Discord Announcement!

Please be sure to read the following news article!

ATTENTION ALL CREWS!

 

On April 21st, 2017, Pirates Online Retribution Discord's usage availability will be restricted solely to POR Staff, and POR Sponsors/Donors. This is being done as a result of a steep decline in activity on the Pirates Forums, which as a result has lessened POR's SEO score as a whole. SEO (Search Engine Optimization) determines how visible your site is when a random individual searches it on a search engine. Actions such as comments, blogs, and profile messages on the Forums greatly contribute to SEO. Unfortunately, messages on Discord do not. If there is a declining SEO score, this means that there are fewer potentially new players around to replace those who may go inactive some day, and as a result, the community as a whole will ultimately shrink in the longterm if this measure is not taken. 

 

Furthermore, this will allow our moderators to allocate more attention towards moderating the game, and hosting future GM events. We sincerely hope that you'll all be joining us on the official Pirates Forums, as it is far more versatile, and by using it, you are ultimately helping the project far more in the longhaul. Post - April 21st, in order to retain your spot in the official POR Discord, as stated previously, you must either be a POR Staff member, or a Sponsor. You can become a Sponsor by donating on the Pirates Forums. Godspeed!

As many of you may be aware, a group known as "ROT" AKA "Reign of Terror" which is allegedly working alongside TLOPO has hacked into the accounts of a handful of players lately here at POR. Without getting too specific as to how/why this occurred, we'd simply like to strongly advise you all to update your passwords IMMEDIATELY in order to ensure that your account is under solid lock-and-key and is not in danger of being compromised.

 

We have taken several measures to further improve the security of our game's systems and databases to decrease the likelihood of an issue such as this from ever occurring again in the future. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused any of you loyal retribution-seeking swashbucklers. Please be sure to relay this message to all of yer fellow pirates and buccaneers!

Hoist the colors, and raise the black. After 6 long years, Disney has just recently announced that Pirates of the Caribbean will be making a 5th return to theaters this May in "Dead Men Tell No Tales". One can't help but wonder what the future will hold for Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, Captain Barbossa, and the other pirates of the Caribbean!

 

The Staff here at Pirates Online Retribution are especially excited for this new debut as it will assuredly increase traffic to our website, and therefore help to not only revive, but exponentially increase the size of our community. We look forward to taking on new recruits, and to seeing you newcomers in the Caribbean very soon. Godspeed!

"Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there. The children were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads. And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap, had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap. When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter."

 

Santa's coming to town me hearties! Come and join us this Friday evening to receive your Christmas gifts from Santa Claus and his mischievous band of elves. Each and every player will be allowed to receive any one item of his or her choosing! Choose wisely, as thar be no changing yer mind afterwards!

 

When: Friday, December 16th: 7PM - 9PM EST US

 

Where: Abassa & Andaba, Port Royal | Governor's Mansion

Yo-ho-ho! Have we got a gift for you! You heard it right mates. Sharpen yer blades and cock yer pistols. Enemies now be droppin' pouches and chests full of loot and treasure. Thar truly be nothin' more nostalgic for any true Pirates Online player than grindiin' all night long and hopin' that every time ye open up a loot chest, that thar just might be a legendary weapon hidden inside!

 

Anyways, enough of me talkin'. Stop lounging around and go get plunderin' ye filthy landlubbers! Thar be no limits to the sheer amount of treasure ye can plunder off of yer foes in the Caribbean now. This is what bein' a pirate's really all about!

A Mysterious Discovery!

Has he discovered the ancient lair of Jolly Roger?
12/4/2016
Comments (8)

 

Avast! Captain Sam here! Just last evenin', I stumbled across a mythical island which has long been clouded in mystery on the far outskirts of the Caribbean. Long believed to be not but the talk of rumors and legends, it seems now that this here island is much more real than we once thought, and I best not even begin to imagine what doom awaits any pirate mad enough to venture there!

 

If ye are in fact daring and bold enough to try and sail to this cursed rock, bear one thing in mind. Thar be talk that this here island is in fact the ancient home of the devilish pirate captain, Jolly Roger. As ye are surely aware by now, Jolly Roger is no friend to us pirates, and I therefore feel obliged to caution ye against going to such a place unless ye know what exactly it is ye be gettin' yerself into. Fair winds, and godspeed for now me hearties!

The Devil's Dolls!

Ahoy there, mates! Late last night, a massive shipment of what appear to my eyes to be "dolls" of some sort or another landed on the beaches of Tortuga. Upon lookin' a wee bit closer at 'em, I couldn't help but notice what appeared to be some familiar faces of some of the local townsfolk. 

 

Out of sheer curiosity, I took a poke at one of 'em and almost immediately felt a sharp burning sensation in me leg, and the doll began to glow an ominous dark color. I'll leave it up to all of ye to decide for yerselves how to handle these devilish toys, but be warned, they be a lot more dangerous than they appear.

Home, Sweet Home!

Venture home to Tortuga, Abassa!

Comments (9)

 

Just this past evening, a large band of pirates was seen venturing away from the Navy-held island of Port Royal, and back towards the Pirate's Haven of Tortuga; a symbol of freedom for all pirates throughout the Caribbean! There was one location in particular on Pirates Online which stood out above all others; Tortuga, Abassa! 

 

We here at Pirates Online Retribution consider the community aspect of our project to be one of, if not the single most important part of our entire project. After all, the Pirates Online community is what made Pirates Online such an amazing experience in the first place! For years, Tortuga, Abassa was the main center of player interactivity throughout Pirates Online, and we therefore believe it to be crucically important that this tradition continue to be upheld within Pirates Online Retribution.

 

 We encourage all pirates, swashbucklers, seadogs, and buccaneers alike to venture home to Tortuga, Abassa. We'll be waiting for ye!

The Heart of Padres!

Ahoy, mateys! Recently thar has been trouble brewin' over on the volcanic island of Padres Del Fuego. Lord Cutler Beckett and those blimey East India Company thugs have taken control of the mines and are reapin' themselves a mighty fortune from its rich gem deposits buried deep within the Heart of the island. Legend has it, a curse was conjured up hundreds of years ago by the natives of the island to dispel any and all invaders from ever layin' claim to it. Although long thought to be not but a myth or a talk of the trade, it would seem that thar may be a bit of truth to the tale after all. The local gypsies of the island have given me permission to share with ye all a code that'll allow ye to lay claim to one of only a handful of the cursed swords left from all those years ago. Thar be a catch though. In return, ye be expected to aid the locals in helping clear out all those damned Navy and EITC invaders! ​

 

Ye can redeem the followin' code: "Heart of Padres" for the Heart of Padres Sword This be a mighty powerful weapon mates. Only the best of the best can wield her! We think ye be up to the task. ​​
