  • Ahoy thar Fo'Rum!

    Early into the development of Sea of Thieves, Rare Ltd. had decided that they wanted to create the 'ultimate Pirate game experience'. A game that would strive to be the most welcoming, fun and inclusive game available with a strong focus on the sacred bond between the crew, their teamwork and laughter.

    With those ideals set in stone, the team got to work...

    One way that Rare wanted to celebrate the amazing community was by actually having the community shape the world and 'leave their mark' on the Sea of Thieves.

    It was to the surprise of us all when we began to notice Pirates' immortalised in the game with in-game Easter Eggs.
    Each tribute has a story, a legend, a reason why that pirate made their mark on the development of Sea of Thieves.

    The below list is the confirmed list of known 'marks' found in the game.

    To discuss and help hunt down the remaining marks, check out this topic.

  • Ahoy there, you lovely lads and lasses!

    Join @trixz2007 , @eredhar and a special guest on Sea of Thieves, on perilous journeys to seek treasures for those who need them the most. Through the help of Gamers Outreach, we plan to provide aid for the little ones that are having difficulties gaming, may these be physical, mental or social. The goal is to rise $100 for them throughout the charitable stream.

    “Gamers Outreach is a 501(c)(3) charity organization that provides recreation to children in hospitals through the power of video games and the gaming community. Hospitalization can often be a lonely, isolating, and scary experience for young people. We ease those burdens by providing equipment, technology, and software that help kids cope with long-term treatment.” - Gamers Outreach

    @trixz2007 has been a streamer on multiple platforms for over 8 years, playing a wide range of games. He first set foot on Plunder Outpost around a year ago and since then he fell in love with Sea of Thieves. We have been discussing having a charitable stream to raise awareness and money for fantastic causes, and here we are now!


    Just doing a lovely charity stream is not enough for us, so we will be hosting a little contest for you too. During the session, we will be challenging all of you to solve a couple of riddles and the winner the lucky pirate will receive the book “Tales from the Sea of Thieves”!

    I am hoping to see as many of you as possible on

    Thursday, 15th of November, 2018

    over on Twitch to help those in need.

    Smooth sailing,

  • Hi everyone,

    Some of you may remember me from the early days of Sea of Thieves where I answered questions in stream chats and wrote a fan story here on the forums. I'm writing this post today because there's poison in the sea of thieves and it's not being mentioned. I've had the misfortune of running into this each time I've attempted to get back into a game I used to love.

    I'm talking about toxic players. To let you know what I mean, this isn't players who attack anyone on sight or taking their things. This is a pirate game where attacking and thieving pirates are to be expected. What I'm talking about is players who will take a 4-man crew from a galleon, jump aboard a sloop and grief the solo player or duo by killing them repeatedly, spouting taunts and overall nasty comments over voice-chat and stopping a scuttled ship from sinking fully.

    I don't expect the developers to do anything about this because I don't know how to fix this and I don't think they give a [Mod Edit - Swearing]. I do however believe this needs to be known as a phenomenon within your beloved game that has the potential of leaving a foul taste in the mouths of new players and veterans alike.

    As much as I once loved this game, these kinds of players are far too frequent for me to ignore, so this will be my final interaction with this game and its community.

    So long pirates, fair winds to ye.

  • Our wonderful Khaleesi will be leaving Rare at the end of this week....

    I know that I for one was very saddened to hear the news, she will be missed, she has been a strong and fearless leader of the Community and guiding light for the Deckhands.


    We wish you nothing but success, love and luck and a wonderful future wherever you roam!

  • Ok, saw this on twitter and thought we need this on the forums!

    Post yours below!

    I have two Spinal Tap figurehead codes that I don't need so I will be giving them away to two lucky members of the Sea of Thieves community. The winners will be chosen at random on Friday, November 9th. To enter, simply reply to this thread with an answer to the following question: What has been your favorite Sea of Thieves update (big or small) and why?

    Best of luck!

  • I MADE IT!

    So it took me seven months, a lot of time in different crews, one main crew who have slowed down recently and of course, the boatswain crew, who are hands down, some of the finest Pirates you are likely to sail with if you ever get the chance.
    I won’t go into all of the details of how I made it, but I was ready for the next challenge and Duke was involved – some will not like that, some will, but it worked for me and it’s a mechanic that I am pleased Rare put in.

    Now for the crux of the matter – retention of a player
    This game has held me like NOTHING else before it. I do not play games for long at all – I play them for a few weeks, maybe a month, rinse them and then I’m done.

    I played Sea of Thieves every week, as my main, if not ONLY game, since day one!

    That is testament to the game that Rare have built, that is testament to the majority of players you find out there on the sea, that is also testament to updates and improvements that we have constantly seen since launch. I have made true friends from this game, people I speak to daily, people who I share my life with and they theirs with me – the comradery is amazing!

    I tried to hit Legend and spend my first hours in a decent, upstanding Bosun way, so I dropped into a random game, saw a few Pirates working hard together, then dropped then an Athena and went on my way after ringing all the islands for them.

    I am not done with this game – I can now enjoy what my crew want to do without thinking “I’d really like to get some more Merchant done”. No, now I can just sail and earn loot to buy those nice shiny Legendary cosmetics!


    There are people who have been with me since day one:
    @o-Pixel-Pixie-o – My crewmate since day one and always there when I needed a crew
    @Reedski – the frustrated Captain
    @Fakelamselaar – the Great Dane himself
    @FishSt1ck – the one and only – the man who brought me over the Discord!
    @PersonalC0ffee – our Legend and guide
    @LucianSanchez82 and @Octopus-Lime - my Bricktop buddies!
    @SpecialAdvisor – the silky voiced announcer who is a calming influence for shipmate!
    @boatswain – I can’t name you all here, but Sirio, Monkey, J4y, Music, Thor, Lotus, Reddy and all of you guys, you make playing more fun!



  • What's this? A 6-item giveaway?! Yes indeed! You know what... we never got to know who in the Sea of Thieves designed the tattoos so why not design one yourself! Want to win this code? Get on Instagram and simply draw a new tattoo design and tag it with #SoulStreamGiveaway and #SeaOfThieves! Winner will be announced December 1st in my discord channel!

  • So I won myself an awesome bit of artwork, and am very proud to receive it and place it on display with the other piece we have. Honestly @lizalaroo thank you so much, your competitions and craft work are outstanding.

    Also had to take a pic of it next to in game version, that's how realistic and superb talent is !

  • What makes this game great?

    I have pondered this question for some time, it is something that I have discussed at length and to be honest there is one simple truth – one reason why so many people keep coming back to the Sea and why we are seeing Legends born every day, even months after the game has been released and when others around us have been there long before us - THE JOURNEY

    People refer to the GRIND of the game, but there truly is no grind in my mind, or at least there shouldn’t be, there should be shared experiences, voyages that make you laugh, make you cry, make you want to hurl your controller through the TV screen so it hits that damned Pig who keeps running into those bushes over there - NO – over there – THAT ONE – IT KEEPS HIDING FROM ME!

    Seriously though – whilst I would like to see Lore in the game more and persistently (don’t hit me @personalc0ffee) the main reason I have come back to the game over the past second months has been to enjoy the game, not to make Pirate Legend. Athena doesn’t interest me so much, I doubt I will reach, or aim to reach Athena 10, but I keep coming back to have fun and make new friends.

    What I find amazing is the community that we have here – one that if we take a step back for a moment and remain calm, can be one that is such an excellent place to be. Those who were here prior to launch will know what I mean – a place to share ideas, to share excitement, to share stories. I love this part of the community and I will remain here as long as the lights are left on in order to keep those stories coming. To keep those positive posts coming – not to be a ”fanboy”, “Rare employee”, “white knight” but to simply show folks that there is another way – one that doesn’t involve entitlement or demanding content, one that simply thinks – “hey – that’s a cool idea, I can’t wait to try that”, or “hey, that’s an interesting name for a content drop – what do you think might be coming”.

    So enjoy the game, enjoy the stories, enjoy the JOURNEY – avoid a grind, please, it won’t make you enjoy the game! I certainly never tried to grind and as such I am happy to go back to the seas this evening and see what new adventure awaits.

    And remember – that Boatswain title some of us hold is not there for anything special – we just try to play by the rules and help folk out where we can – we don’t even have a closed number – ANYONE can join us, and do regularly when the powers that be recognise you for your awesomeness – so keep the community there – keep posting, keep smiling!

    Captain Sshteeve – not my pirate legend.

  • Ahoy everyone! I've been lurking around the forums for some time just reading everyone else's posts. I had an interaction in-game this afternoon that tickled me so much that I just had to share it because I appreciate the unique interactions that can take place in the game.
    So I am solo-ing in my sloop & I spawn at an outpost. I'm just going around... buying a couple things from Duke. I get myself killed by a shark so I can get a blue lantern flame and I spawn back in the tavern. I walk back out to my ship... change all lanterns blue... and I see a galleon coming towards me. I panic a little and raise anchor fast and drop sails to get out fast. I run up to crows nest and put up the alliance flag hoping they're friendly. They accept the alliance so I swing my ship around and drop anchor and stop and just start waving and all of them... I think there were 3 in total.... board my ship. None of them did anything hostile so I wasn't worried... then one of the guys starts talking... He says "we normally kill people on sight, but we've got a soft spot for solo sloopers... so we're going to let you live... but you've gotta play our game first. Do you agree to play?" I agree to it and one of them begins playing the tense music from Who Wants to be a Millionaire ... guy asks me 3 pretty simple trivia questions... I get them all right... they let me live, leave an epic quest on my quest table, and they go on their way. As they're leaving they are broadcasting w/ the speaking trumpet the upbeat victory theme from The Price is Right as they're sailing off... it was absolutely magical!!

    These are the kind of moments that really make this game shine for me! I wish I had taken screenshots of the guys names or captured video as it went down, but I was too lost in the hilarity of the moment to think about it.

    Love this stuff! Cheers!

    Introducing Galleons Gambit, Sea of Thieves premier PVP fleet combat event.

    Born from the ashes of "The Thieves Gauntlet", Galleons Gambit is a polished Galleon v Galleon double elimination tournament Produced by the Pirate Council and hosted by The Blue Devils featuring 8 elite crews from around the world seeking to officially crown themselves as Sea of Thieves #1 fleet.

    Event Trailer: Galleons Gambit Teaser

    What date is this being held

    Saturday January 19. Times will be updated closer to the event.

    What is Galleons Gambit?

    Galleons Gambit is the peak Galleon v Galleon competition outside of national team matches. Like the title of Mr Olympia, there is no greater honour than being Galleons Gambit Champions. Unlike other GvG tournaments such as "The Thieves Gauntlet", "The Byron Bay Bash", "The Douglas Cup" or "Turkey Brawl" (who admit all fleets regardless of ability), this tournament is limited to 8 skilled teams for organisational and quality purposes. It also features limited ship resources, a shorter match timer and limited cursed cannonballs.

    How can my fleet participate?

    Participation is open to any fleet, crew or ship, though teams will be interviewed to ensure they are capable of competing. While spaces for teams are limited, each team is composed of 6 players (4 main, 2 ringers). Players have the opportunity to sign onto the event as an individual, where a crew in need can recruit you directly from this point.

    What Information do I need to register with?

    Teams will need to provide a Ship / Crew name and team uniform. A captain & champion must be designated (these can be the same person), and all members must provide their discord ID and microsoft gamertag.

    Individual players only need to provide their discord ID and microsoft gamertag.

    A template can be found in the comment section, you may register interest below.

    Are streamers invited?

    Streamers are encouraged to participate within this tournament by registering their own crew, or as an individual (the pirate council will assist streamers by finding them participating crews if required).

    Am I guaranteed to play?

    Spaces are extremely limited for this first season of Galleons Gambit, so many people who register will not get the opportunity to play. However, future seasons will be open to more teams.

    What should I expect from a double elimination tournament?

    Teams will play a minimum two games. "The Gambit Round" will consist of 8 teams in 4 matches. The winners will progress into the "Seas" bracket while the losers will progress into the "locker" bracket. The winner of the Seas bracket will be crowned "Champions of the Sea" and Galleons Gambits overall winner, the winner of the Locker bracket will be crowned "Champions of the Locker" and will have the opportunity to battle the Sea bracket champions in an exhibition match for bragging rights.

    Other tournaments have previously relied on long, detailed lists that can be difficult to read at times. Galleons Gambit has learnt from these experiences and bases this tournament on seven rules + common sense.

    #1: The Crew - Each crew is made up of 6 registered players who may interchange throughout the tournament. A "Captain" and "Champion" must be labeled. A full Uniform must be outlined.

    #2: The Ship + Combat - Both Galleons are only allowed spawn cannon (45), plank (15) and banana (15) resources at the start of match. Players must not gather more than these resources. Explosive Barrels are expressly forbidden. A select few cursed cannonballs will be made available. Players may use any combination of weapons and techniques, without limitation, to aid them in battle.

    #3: The Arena - Game play is limited to a 2 x 2 grid known as "The God Hands" located at J-K 13-14. Leaving the area for more than 30 seconds without making reasonable efforts to return will result in DQ.

    #4: The Setup - Crews position themselves at the NE and SW corners of the playing field. Anchors and sails are to be raised. On hearing a cannon fire, play commences.

    #5: The Timer - Crews have 10 minutes to successfully sink the other ship. Failure to do so after this point will result in sudden death.

    #6: Sudden Death - Each crews "Champion" fights 1v1 on the main deck of a Galleon. All weapons and techniques allowed. No healing. Last representative standing wins.

    #7: The Unexpected - Weather events, Beasts, and floating barrels are all fair game. We will not stop play if acts of god occur.

    The Galleons Gambit champions will be bestowed the undisputed title of "Champions of the Seas", Sea of Thieves highest Galleon tournament honor. In addition to officially being able to call your Fleet/Crew the #1 PVP Fleet on the Sea of Thieves, the winning team of 4, including their 2 ringers, will each receive a unique Sea of Thieves themed prize to commemorate their victory. These prizes, with the potential for more, will be showcased closer to the event.

  • Hello everyone :)

    I have seen a fair bit of negativity in the forums of late, and I wanted to take a moment for us to celebrate the great people who brave the waters in game. I consistently find dedicated, nice, hard working and fun people online.

    I would like everyone to share screenshots in game of great people they have met, of teams achieving their goals and of having a great time in game.

    I would like to share a screenshot from a few nights ago.
    These 3 people were all random matchmaking pick ups, we braved the DR together and completed an Athena, declaring ourselves the "best friend squad" from the start.
    This screenshot was from just after we had completed and handed in our Athena chest together.

    The Pirate Council desires to celebrate the discovery of the Devil's Roar with a friendly tournament of SKULLBALL! We will establish ourselves on the Forsaken Shores and hold the Region's Very First Skullball Tournament!

    alt text

    alt text

    • What is Skullball?

    Skullball is a sport invented by the Fortune Union. Essentially, the goal of the game is to take the Skull to the Opposing Team's Crow's Nest. For the FORSAKEN SKULLBALL Tournament, each community will bring forward a Brigantine Crew to battle it out!

    • Rules

    Teams are composed of Looters and Watcher.
    Having a Watcher is optional.
    There can only be 1 Watcher per team, at a time.
    Watchers have to stay on their Respective Ships.
    Looters can only use a Cutlass and a Flintlock.
    Watchers can only use a Cutlass and an Eye of Reach.
    When a team scores a point, the opposing team starts the new round with the Skull. Once the Skull is off the ship, the starting team cannot return on their ship with it.

    Looters are not allowed to access the opposing team's lower decks.
    No Bananas are allowed, other than the ones you can pick up on the island.
    No Cannons.
    No one is allowed on the Sails or on the Crow's Nest, other than the one carrying the Skull.

    If a Watcher is found off their ship, the round will be paused, and the Watcher is killed as the round is resumed.

    If an Opposing Looter is found fighting below decks, the round will be paused and the deck will be cleared. The Opposing Looters that were on the ship at the time of the penalty will be able to resume on land, by the ship.

    When a penalty is called, Players on the Ferry will have to remain on the Ferry until the round is resumed. If a Player spawns back while there is a Penalty Call, they will be executed and will return to the Ferry.

    Intentionally harming the Ships will result in immediate disqualification.

    All Penalties will be dealt by the Referees & ShoutCasters alone.

    (Rules and Penalties are subject to possible change.)


    Your team gets a point when you carry the Skull to your Opposing Team's Crow's Nest.

    The team who reaches 3 points first, or has the most points after 15 minutes wins.

    If there is a stalemate, an additional Sudden Death round occurs. Once a player dies during the Sudden Death round, they will not be allowed to spawn back.

    If there is a stalemate during the Sudden Death round, a single duel will settle the matter.

    • Where can I see this?

    You will be able to follow the FORSAKEN SKULLBALL Tournament by tuning in to our Official Shoutcaster @ELLISisBEAST with Special Guest @Thor-Von-Blitz
