Ahoy!! Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day heh.

Can you guess who I quoted in the title?!

A few ideas of mine would be...

Things to do in WoW for International Talk Like a Pirate Day!
-Check out the Pirates' Day in Booty Bay.
-Kill Briusers in Booty bay?! Ruin that faction and start working towards being a real pirate! (Good luck there ;) ).
-Go visit Edwin VanCleef and Mr.Smite to hear some of the best Pirate Lingo around!
-Drink Lots of booze and shout Pirate like talk across every zone you enter. Quote your favorite Pirate in wow! "Fools! Our cause is righteous!"
-Call Everyone "matey".

Things to do in EQ for International Talk Like a Pirate Day!
-Get drunk and /y pirate lingo in the Guild Lobby! " Yarrrr! You've ruined your own lands Matey. Avast you'll not ruin mine!!." Or make sure to use it in ALL chat!
- Go visit Gulf of Gunthak (or your favoriet pirate zone.. TBS, LoY, OOT, IC or TD), Bring some friends, run around with no pants and see how many pirates you can kill at once. Spice it up and use the weapons the pirates drop ;)
-Do Pirate Missions and make everyone role play as a pirate- or just talk like one.

Pirates! Yaaaaaaaaaar!
I thought today would be extra cool for the two pirate mmorpgs' out there. Pirates of the Burning Sea looks to be having a bit of a celebration today.

Also Pirates of the Caribbean is hosting Talk Like A Pirate Week!

In WoW today is Pirates' day, so I logged in and got my achievement "The Captains Booty". All you have to do is Drink with the Dread Captain Demeza to join her crew during Pirates Day. Easy achievement to get.

There were tons of people on the roof in Booty Bay lots of PvP action of course. Mostly I saw dancing, drinking, people killing bruisers, flight masters and each other. You get a 12 hr pirate costume buff which is fun.

Tomorrow Brewfest starts! I always enjoy the holiday events more than anything these days.

Free Realms
FR still has the Party Wheel available for the 5mil Celebration. It will be in game until Sept 23. You can access it on the welcome screen. I logged in and got a ice cream cone, as the coolest item so far, for my adventure set. Free stuff is always good!

Champions Online
Champions is currently taking a poll "What new areas do you want to see in Champions Online?" So be sure to check it out and vote! Very good to see the developers are keeping in touch with what the players want. With this and the economy changes things look very good for Champions!

EQ is having a few contest for International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Some nifty rewards, these are not in game events though. You can find them here.

We're under attack! A vast, ye swabs! Repel the invaders!

Happy Pirates' Day Mateys'!
