  • Ahoy thar Fo'Rum!

    Another play test done and dusted and I'm seeing some really fun and creative pictures from the Pirates time at Sea, far and wide across the different social platforms.
    Figured it would be good to give people a place to dump their snaps.

    Do you have any screenshots you'd like to show the Crewmunity?

    Show us your best seascape, sunset, grog shenanigans and hijinks!

    I'll kick things off with these two I took alongside my buddy @Jangles87

    While he was doing all the actual work and sailing the ship I was getting in the way taking pictures...

    ... and then when we landed ashore he did all the work in finding the gold.*

    Here's a screenshot of the camp, which is now my Xbox One background.

  • As it says, here's a great place to collect together screenshots and captures of the assorted buccaneers we've managed to create so far!

    Here's @lizalaroo, @Tartansnake-8 and @stacky-a in all their glory - one thing we spent a good deal of time doing, was trying out the various options in the Vanity Chest as well as the Clothing items, it really made a difference to how these initial pirate selections looked!

  • Hey everyone, this is my first post on the forums! Sea of Thieves was my favourite game of 2018 and I love the art style, so I decided to try and make a custom 3D prop in the same art style.

    sinking ships for the skullfort

    Hopped into open crew (as usual) doing some chill voyages, saw no ships the whole time so we decide to do the skullfort..

    At the time the pvp kicks off its just two of us, we take out a sloop, two briggs and a galleon, I anchor them as I'm keeping them occupied my teammate swam out with a keg to finish them off, they get krakened coming back to us which gave us time to load up (thanks devs) they escape the kraken but get ghost shipped (thanks again) I load up a ballast ball and my teammate delivers the fatal shot.

    After we sell, our next voyage is at sailors bounty, as we approach.. Yup they got a respawn there! The battle ensues again, eventually get them lined up behind for a keg, killing two of them and they sink again, was a fun night.

    At first these guys were majorly trash talking more than what's shown (thought I clipped more than I did) until I told one on the ferry that was apologising that it's ok I've clipped footage ready for reporting, and then he came more apologetic, he ended up seemingly cool by the end of it though.

    So we won the loot, we won the battles, I hold no hard feelings, I told the guy on the ferry at the end it's cool it's only a game (which he replies see you on the battle field mate) somtimes the pve likes to dish out some good karma 😂

    Seing as how I hadn't clipped as much as I thought and the change in attitude and the fact we won I never bothered to report, thankfully it was me and good adult open crew teammates they ran into and not other kids playing and hopefully they now have a change In attitude.

  • Hey sailors! I just had a great idea to start a podcast. I am thinking of calling it "A Captain's Confessions." I need a few things from you loyal thieves. Suggestions for a title, stories to tell on said podcast, and people to help me tell it.
    Here is the discord server, if you want to join that:

  • Aztec Ruins

    We all want gold right? But what if that gold comes with a price?

    There are so many Jungles in the Sea of Thieves, so many caves that are yet to be explored. Long lost openings beneath the waves, where civilisations could hide from the arrival of Pirates… It’s not just the Bilge Rats and their “thrones” down there you know…

    Picture the scene: You’ve been sailing for hours, with no sign of treasure to be had from fort or foe, you step onto an island you know so well, but you heard drums. Loud, rhythmic, as if the island itself has a heart that is willing you to the vast jungle.

    You stumble around a little, but then the leaves part, revealing a rock face with a familiar symbol:

    You recognise this from the stories of Legends who can open a stair beneath the Tavern to a secret hideout, but you pull out your Hurdy Gurdy anyway and begin to play… in time with the drums… mysterious voices calling out “we shall sail together,” almost ethereal; a ghostly wail calling you further on. Just then the ground shakes and the rock crumbles before your eyes! A dimly lit tunnel lies ahead and you and your crew decide to step inside…

    You didn’t think Athena only worked with Pirates right?

    You’re used to Skeletons, they’re old game now and you know their noises, but something isn’t quite… right down here… strange babbling and squeaks that you haven’t heard before mingle in with the growing beat of the drum… sounds that seem more, human somehow than the hisses of skulls or the animal calls out in the open air.

    As you descend you start to see a distant light at the end of the tunnel, flickering as though a flame burns ahead. Your crew are still at your back, but so close you can smell the banana that one had for his lunch (or was it breakfast?). Louder still the rhythm continues, those new sounds morphing into language, but you cannot understand it, you could argue that it sounds like chanting now that you can grasp more of the tone and the “words”.

    The tunnel comes to and end and opens into a cavern that must be as wide as the island. This isn’t the usual dank, cold recess within the rocks that you have found before; no this is mined out, chiselled to a shape that suits the needs of whoever built it: whoever being the collection of creatures now stood starting at you and the crew:
    The drums are silent, a hundred sets of… faces? Stare back at you. Creatures that clearly look to be human in a way, yet their skin seems pale and as if it were glistening with scales. I say faces with hesitation as clearly these are not at all the faces of the creatures themselves, but a collection of driftwood and planks that have been marked out in particular patterns:

    It’s still hard now to even grasp the scale of the room, bonfires spotted around the edges, yet the room is brighter than any enclosed space we have ever seen; it doesn’t take much longer to realise the reason for this illumination is the giant device in the middle of the room. That pattern again, as if idolising some God, or should I say Goddess; ”Athena” is the name I have heard Legends mutter before as they huddle around a collection of charts and manuscripts.

    We turn tail and run, for fear of what these newly found inhabitants may think of our intrusion…

    We fly through that tunnel as fast as we can, but to our utter dismay and then dread we see a mast, low in the water, our Galleon sunk. We sprint to the beach to see what we may salvage from the wreck, too eager to collect our precious chests and cargo than to think of what may be behind us… what may be around us… what sank our mighty vessel…

    Trapped in the dark

    It has been three days since I turned around from my wreckage. Three days since I stood dumbfounded at the sight. Three days since the island inhabitants awoke from their chanting beneath the island, slowly collecting unfortunate souls that dare to set foot on the island.

    One Pirate tells me that this is not a chance encounter – that these inhabitants the Gold Hoarders have named ”Pygmy” have come back to protect their homes across the Sea of Thieves. We dug too much, we took too much, now we pay the price.

    It was the 14th January when I placed this bottle in a stream that runs beneath my cage and I pray that someone finds it soon.

  • Sea of Thieves: The Boardgame

    Ahoy there,

    I have been thinking, for some time, about creating a Sea of Thieves inspired boardgame. I've been brainstorming a bunch of ideas, ideas that would reflect what Sea of Thieves is at its core: A shared adventure taking place in a pirate world.

    The Warsmith has returned to the Sea of Thieves and our brave captains need to sail together to defeat her. But this time victory will not be as easy as they thought. Madame Olga tells them about a mysterious chest that contains an ancient magical scroll that could bring the Warsmith’s terror to an end. The party will have to embark on a dangerous voyage in search of the lost scroll.

    The players will have to work together to find hints that will lead to the ancient scroll’s location. They will have to deliver the scroll before the Warsmith amasses her fleet of skeletons and brings ruin the Sea of Thieves.

    Prototype Cards

    I would love to hear your thoughts on this project!

    Lots of love,

  • First try, what do you think?

  • So, I decided to make a time lapse video from one of the islands, Sanctuary Outpost, and it turned out far better than i could have hoped. With a storm passing just as the sun comes up beside a skull fort cloud. Turned out absolutely beautiful.

  • Hi, it's a couple of weeks that i'm looking for a fankit of the game but there's a problem...

    All the ones I found are dated September 2017 and have no new image inside.

    Someone is aware of some link that contains images of the game also updated in November/December 2018?

    Thanks a lot and arrrg.

  • Happy Holiday wishes from the Seas of Thieves. But not everyone is feeling festive this year, and some are even plotting to all put and end to all this Christmas Cheer! Personally, I think they should quit while they are A-HEAD

    Merry Christmas, and as always keep on sailing!!

  • By far, one of my favorite aspects of Sea of Thieves was the music, and as an accordion player myself, the Concertina practically sold me. I was ready to learn all the songs, but I couldn't track down any of the sheet music. So I decided to transcribe two of the playable songs:

    Becalmed -
    Grogg Mayles -

    All credit to these beautiful songs goes to their original composers. Enjoy!

  • Enjoy this fun video of me sneaking aboard a ship at a skull fort. I tried to get a bit more creative with this video, let me know what you think!

    Subscribe to me on to see all of my videos as soon as they're up. My next video is going to be a Mega Keg montage, and you won't want to miss it!

  • The following statement comes to you courtesy of...

    ...this drunk-looking man. (You might want to stay upwind, folks!)

    "It has come t' me attention that th' opposite o' an insignificant number o' scallywags 'ave blurred - if nah outright torn - th' words written on th' pages o' me personal tale. While I be nah one t' begrudge people from exaggeratin' certain facts here 'n thar, fer I meself am guilty o' it, th' fact remains that many o' th' details surroundin' me background are jus' flat-out wrong! So open yer ears or tilt yer hard-o'-hearin' aids in me direction now, 'cause I be only goin' t' be sayin' all this once!

    Me name be Skol Duggary. I answer t' one o' three names, includin' that one. Th' other two are 'Sellsword' 'n 'Sea Wolf.' I ne'er answered t' th' moniker o' 'Black Dog.' That name belonged t' Benjamin Doggett, th' real cap'n o' th' galleon known as th' Furious Flibbertigibbet. Whassat? No, aye, I don't blame ye fer gettin' confused. I, admittedly, did say that th' vessel in question was me ship. But, t' be fair, she was in a way! I had been hired by Doggett t' protect her and her cargo, see? Therefore she was me responsibility!

    I see that I be losin' some o' ye. Alright, allow me t' try 'n summarize. Everythin' that ye heard about me up t' a certain point be true. I did serve aboard a vessel known as th' Storm Chaser in me youth, 'n I mos' certainly did come face-t'-face wit' th' nefarious Captain Martinez. But most o' me time spent here on th' Sea o' Thieves has been as a doubloons-grubbin' condottiere! Simple enough t' remember, aye? Aye! Good! Huh? No, I be nah goin' t' tell ye wha' 'condottiere' means!'"

    (There's much more to this story, but I figured that everyone would be happy with the abridged version.)

    What exactly is this, aside from poorly-written? It's my way of trying to retcon the background of the Skol Duggary character, who you might recall made his debut as the narrator of The Potentially Unbelievably True Story of The El Dorado...

    Even though his nemesis is nothing like the legendary Hungering One, I felt that his story was too similar to Merrick's. Yes, Skol came first, but claiming that my character was once the captain of the nameless vessel on Old Salts Atoll was really pushing it. The part of the quintessential captain-turned-castaway was just not meant for him! This "new" Skol was built using the backstory of Pirates of the Caribbean character William Turner Jr. as a template. His years as a child and early teen were spent amongst the crew of the Dying Gull-like Storm Chaser, which often frequented a non-canon area of my own making that I've come to call The Hunting Grounds. This area would include a lot of islands that've only ever been realized in concept art, such as Anglers Island and everything seen here. This area would also play home to a unique threat in the form of the Poukai, an avian equivalent to the Megalodan created by artist Max Simoneau. You can see a picture of the beast here.

    But I digress...

    Skol's life changed on the day that he and the rest of the Storm Chaser crew happened upon a Bilge Rat Junk (see that had come under attack from a small fleet of Skeleton-manned vessels. The Storm Chaser's captain (who I imagine looked a lot like this) saw an opportunity to make some doubloons and so steered his modest vessel into the thick of it. Young Skol was among a small handful of volunteers who boarded the Junk to assist their crew in repelling borders. In the ensuing battle, Skol saved the life of one Madame Octavia, an Order of Souls representative whom the Bilge Rats were escorting to Grounds' recently established Outpost.

    Days later, whilst wandering around said Outpost, Skol was approached by a man resembling this rugged individual designed by artist Dan Santandrea. He told Skol that he was a Hunter and the captain of a mighty galleon known as the Evening Star. It was the duty of the vessel and its crew to patrol the Grounds and eliminate any "unnatural threats" that should happen to appear. That would have included the vessels that ambushed the Junk as well, had it not found itself trying to fend off the aforementioned Poukai.

    To make a long story short, the Hunter enlightened Skol to the fact that he and Madame Octavia knew were old acquaintances, and that she had confided in him that Skol had demonstrated the three-dimensional thinking necessary for a Hunter to perform their duties. She also suggested that a visit to The Bastion - the headquarters of the Hunters - might be in order. A "visit" turned into a decade-long stay, which also saw Skol learning all there was to learn about being a Hunter.

    On his 21st birthday Skol was brought before the Grand Master of the Ancient Order, who told him that he could either stay and become a full-fledged Hunter like the man who took him in, or leave and find his own path in life. Skol chose the latter. Ever since then he has wandered the Sea of Thieves as a sword-for-fire, using the skills that he learned and honed as a Hunter to great effect -- particularly during the Warsmith Crisis!

    Whaddya think? Not bad, eh? It's my hope that these changes will allow Skol to co-exist in other people's established narratives, such as my buddy @RevanJStone's The Legend of Brandy, for example.

  • Hey all,

    this is my new friend. He doesn't really have a name yet, but this picture is from his first adventure. I'm sure we'll see him and his Pugboat again, pretty soon.

  • Hello there!

    My name is Bjor, for the most part. But you can call me Captain Bjor. I'm in dire need of some shanties! I recently recorded a video doing an old Christmas shanty, but realized I wanted to do more shanties! So, that being said, I would LOVE to have shanties written by the Community to perform (and record) and possibly do some music videos for. I think this could be entertaining and fun for all involved! So, start writing and give me what you've got!

    Love, Captain Bjor

    P.S. Here is the link to my first shanty. Be kind!

  • As I’m writing this story, I only levels 35-40 from being Pirate Legend and I the spirit of the dev’s #SOTStory, I have decided to tell my story for all to read.

    I was in my last year of college, when I came across a game that caught my attention by accident. and when I first saw this game, I thought it was trying to cash in on the new fascination of the pirate world, but then a saw the trailer, it changed my mind. After that trailer I soon join the insider program, where I get to play the game early, if I was lucky that is.
    Every update video that came out, I would always watch whenever I get the chance, and every time I would be interested about what they would bring to the game. When I did get to play Sea of Thieves finally, it was during the beta and I saw this as a test, to see if my computer can run Sea of Thieves, but it didn’t run greatly, so I decide to buy an Xbox one to play Sea of Thieves and Sea of Thieves alone.

    When I finally got both an Xbox one and Sea of Thieves, it was before the Cursed Sails content update had started, at first, I wanted to play alone, but then I realised and understood that this game was better with others. The most fun that I had, was during the fort raids, it gets the blood pumping and when there are more friendlier pirates to do it with, it is a blast to have fun in.

    Playing a game like Sea of Thieves, is a great experience for me, because I have Autism and talking to other people that are not my friends and family is a challenge, heck, even writing this has been a challenge because I try to find the right words to use for the dev’s to read someday. For someone like me to play a game that is so friendly and kind to all players both new, old and somewhere in the middle is something that has blessed the RARE team and is quite rare (pun intended) indeed.

    So, I hope that the RARE team reads this and thank you RARE for making the best pirate sandbox that there is.

    Yours truly pyrosharman1


  • Hi, first of all i'm not that good about english language and i recently changed my gamertag to a more 'piratish' name.
    The whole thing started when i thought about the Duppy Conqueror (i'm a percussuonist of a Reggae Band) and Namen my crew the Duppy Conqueror Crew.
    Duppy means a ghost or ghostly in jamaican patois and fits the Carribean flair of SoT imho.
    I then found the word of bugayaga what is a minor criminal.
    Bugaboo is more like Boogeyman and when i thought about a Pirate name Bugaboo Bill pleased me very well.
    It was a little like bugayaga but sound better in general.
    I then found that this Name was already invented by Palmer C. (censored by forum) in the 19th century as a kids poem about a giant who lives on a hill in England harassing the villagers.
    I tried to find the whole Text, but couldn't find it until so i started to do my own poem about the old pirate Bugaboo Bill.
    I've written a first Verse, but i'm sure there are lots of mistakes if not complete nonsense, for example
    we say Spille for the spindle and i dont know if i can use spill what means something else.
    If someone wants to help me create a poem in english about Bugaboo Bill i'd appreciate that :-)

    There was an old pirate called Bugaboo Bill who roamed the seas and hung on the spill (spindle).
    No matter who it was they ran full of fear
    The Merchants, kings fleet or the privateer
    His flag on a mast was allways a threat
    No other they feared as much as the dead (death?).
    All knew he was bitter like a medicine pill
    But not only dread was Bugaboo Bill.
    He sometimes spared lifes the people told
    He never killed kids a women or the old
    Nor robbed he from poor or got rich by the weak, but cup the gluttons is what was his streak.
    Now you can say i dont fear old tales
    But what will you say if he comes for your sales (or if you once see his Sails)?
    Old Bugaboo Bill is long time not dead
    He's still roaming the seas a s a fearfull threat.

    Thank you and if it's totally bad just tell me. It's not a problem :-)

  • Yo ho ho! On behalf of @SirioNDB and myself, Rogue Legends and Fortune have come to wish you Christmas cheers!

    We've found a few shanties to sing to you and a video suprise down at the bottom!

    All right, ye swabs! Big finish!

    Christmas, Christmas time is here,

    Please Christmas don't be late.

    We hope you enjoy our little vid.
    Happy Holidays Pirates!

  • Ahoy!
    This is officially my 1st post on the forums, and it's about time!
    A little about me... I create Sea of Thieves music videos (many different editions of the shanties now) on YouTube, and thanks to the wonderful SoT community loving their sea shanties, my music videos now have over 1 million views & are the most watched music videos for the game! You guys rock!
    That being said, all my previous editions of the songs are now put to shame, as I've created a year end version that is the pinnacle of all my previous ones. On top of that, I collaborated with Thomas Jonker, who was previously featured in Issue Four of the Pirate Times for his covers of the songs :) He plays the piano which is the lead in my latest version.
    So, why is my latest edition the best one out there?
    -It has 8 DIFFERENT instruments (10, if you include the whistling and tambourine from the drums)
    -Has EVERY lead & EVERY back-up part on the 3 playable instruments, mashed into one track for the fullest sound
    -I added the brand new Festive version of the songs that Rare just released to us, with previously unheard/unseen instruments not found in-game yet
    -Thomas Jonker plays lead on piano

    The end outcome? The richest & fullest sounding version of the shanties you'll have ever heard! :D

    If you love the music from Sea of Thieves like I do, then please do give this a listen!

    (This is just Summon the Megalodon. The other ones are releasing over the next week)

    Thank you in advance to any of you that take the time to check this out!

    Happy holidays, & cheers from the North!

    The words on the document that this man is studying reads as follows:

    Dear Skol,

    If you're reading this letter it means that you followed the instructions that were attached to the bottle of potion that was delivered alongside it, and have since found your ambidexterity and depth perception restored.

    Everyone here has been asking if I've heard from you since you signed up with that wild woman. Whether or not you've bothered to respond to our letters, I know not, but I like to believe that you have & that they have either been lost in transit or you have simply not had the time to find a reliable courier to pass them onto.

    Ever since the fog's started rolling in, business here has dropped considerably. Herman's got more than enough spoils to keep us afloat, but you know how his people feel about sharing the wealth. Mercea has concocted a hair-brain scheme with Teresa & Sonya to export the latter's coconut-flavored grog to the other Outposts. I applaud their enthusiasm, but can't help but feel that their endeavor will be met with frustration and failure. Thomas, Wyatt & Cameron have all been working hard to clear out the upper level of the tavern so that Bilge Rats like Duke won't feel the need to crowd around the bar in order to catch the attentions of visitors. Personally, I am greatly in favor of Wyatt's idea to draw people in through the introduction of what she's taken to calling "contests of chance." It would be a nice way for rival crews to solve their differences without resorting to gratuitous amounts of violence.

    Myself, I am fine. The whispering of my friends continues unabated. Warsmith may be gone, but I can't help but feel that there's a greater threat out there somewhere, waiting to set itself upon us whence we least expect it. More than once now I've reminded myself of the tales you used to tell us of Captain Martinez, and wonder if maybe it's him that is the cause of this latest disturbance. I pray that is not the case, and that I am merely being paranoid. The Skeletons are bad enough, but we know how to deal with them. Actual Ghosts, on the other hand...

    But I am nearly out of time, parchment, and ink, so I will cease things here.

    Yours sincerely,
    Madame Octavia

    P.S. Happy Holidays!
