'Making Our Mark' - Official List of Community Influence.

  • 59

    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.
