Missing-ghostsGhost-hunt

The Great Caribbean Ghost Hunt was a Game Master hosted Event that took place directly after the third, and final Friday the 13th of 2012, during the weekend of Friday, July 20th.

In the Event, many Ghost Game Masters were trapped as orange orbs throughout the Caribbean, as a side-effect from Jolly Roger's Curse of the Muertos Moon from the following weekend. Players would have to watch the Grog Blog for hints of the Ghosts' whereabouts to be posted on the following dates and times:

  • FRIDAY, JULY 20: 11am (PST)
  • SATURDAY, JULY 21: 4pm (PST)
  • SUNDAY, JULY 22: 4pm (PST)

Along with the hints was a unique code-word that was given out for each day. If a player says the code in-front of a ghost, the ghost would turn blue, freeing itself from the curse. The player would then be sent a Redeem Code for 50,000 gold in an email.

Additionally, as a "thank you" reward from the ghosts, players were able to redeem the Spectral Cutlass with the redeem code, spectral.

Announcement Post - July 18th

Jolly Roger's constant curse-casting this past Friday the 13th weekend created chaos for more than just us Pirates. Thanks to his dark magics, the Ghost GMs of the Caribbean have been scattered about the islands, trapped as glowing orange orbs.

While using her mystic voodoo skills to locate the missing ghosts, Tia Dalma fell into a trance and began writing out strange runes. The Marceline Guild's own resident voodoo expert, Sandra Tew, is working on deciphering these runes - they are our only clues to find and free our phantom friends.

Missing-ghosts
We expect her to reveal the clues right here on the Grog Blog on these dates:

FRIDAY, JULY 20: 11am (PST)
SATURDAY, JULY 21: 4pm (PST)
SUNDAY, JULY 22: 4pm (PST)

Once we have the clues, we'll need Pirates to reach the trapped ghosts, and free them from their orange orb state. If you're savvy 'n swift enough to do both first, the Marceline Guild promises a rich reward for yer help.

Check back here at the Grog Blog on the days and times listed above for Sandra Tew's clues. Once the clues are posted at those times, the hunt is on!

Reward and Rules Post - July 20th

As we wait for GM Sandra Tew to reveal the first round of clues, here's everything Pirates need to know to take part in this weekend's hunt for the missing Ghost GMs.

Each day's new set of clues to locate the ghosts will be revealed right here on this same Blog post, at these times:

  • FRIDAY, JULY 20: 11am (PST)
  • SATURDAY, JULY 21: 4pm (PST)
  • SUNDAY, JULY 22: 4pm (PST)

When she reveals the daily clues, Sandra Tew will also give a "voodoo phrase" for that day. Then the hunt officially begins!

Figure out the clue, find the ghost in orange orb state, and speak the "voodoo phrase" of the day to set the orange Ghost GM free.

Remember, when you find the orange orb ghost, you must speak this phrase in chat to free the Ghost GM. If you successfully restore the captive spirit, the orb turns blue.

The first Pirate to find and free the Ghost at a particular location wins the reward:
50,000 gold coins!

If you find a ghost and the orb is already blue, that means another swift and savvy Pirate has beat you to it, and already won the reward.
