New Dawn of Pirates
Age of Adventure
Black Powder Stashes
Ever the schmoozer, Duke strikes up a bargain with the Trading Companies in order to earn their favour. He had recently learnt of places where the Skeletons had been stashing their Gunpowder Kegs and got pirates to deliver those Kegs to the Trading Companies. In return Duke earned the right to open up his own shop, the Black Market. The Black Market would be where Duke offered rare and unique items in exchange for Doubloons and Gold.
The Pirate Emporium Opens For Business
A new shop opens its doors on all the outposts, the Pirate Emporium, located in the empty room atop the Order of Souls tent. Formed by a bunch of ex-Gold Hoarders who became enamoured with a new type of coin, the Ancient Coin. They can import various goods from outside the Sea of Thieves, including pets, ship designs, clothing and more, all for the exchange of Ancient Coins.
They are rumoured to work for someone powerful outside of the Sea of Thieves.
Ancient Skeletons Unearthed
Sightings of a strange skeleton appearing on islands start circulating. These skeletons crawl their way out of the ground and run from any nearby pirates. Many of those who managed to defeat these skeletons report a stash of Ancient Coins being left behind.

The Gold Hoarders and Ancient Vaults
After the defeat of The Gold Hoarder, the Gold Hoarders representatives started hoarding all their gold in Vaults made by the Ancients. With Flameheart's influence growing, the Hoarders sent out pirates to track down the Vault Keys and bring them back.
Fate of the Damned
Skeletons across the Sea of Thieves began to act strangely, so Larinna sent Bilge Rats to investigate what was happening. This Bilge Rat Crews didn't return however and so she has pirates follow their last known whereabouts to find out what happened to them.
Over the weeks pirates came across Skeletons attempting rituals to bring back Lord Graymarrow from the afterlife, the Shadows of Fate a by-product of their attempts to breach the barrier between our world and the Sea of the Damned.
It becomes known that the Skeletons sought to bring back Lord Graymarrow as a measure to fight against Captain Flameheart, hoping he would use his binding magics to seal away Flameheart once again.
Lost Merchant Shipments
As the Sirens begin to awaken Chief Trader Mollie gets in contact with Larinna to try and solve the issue of Merchant ships and their crews disappearing. They send pirates to follow Trade Routes to recover lost Manifests on these Merchant Ships.
Yenay Seeks a Cure for her Mer
Yenay noticed that there was a mermen searching for her, no matter where she sailed, he was there. Over their repeated meetings they grow closer until the day where the mer showed to Yenay a scratch on his arm. The next day, Yenay could no longer hear the song of her merman following her, there was only silence.
To save her mermen, Yenay set sail to find a fabled magical item in the Shrine of Ocean's Fortune. Although his quest was unsuccessful, Yenay set out to find the Siren Queen to help him return her mer.
Duke Begins Searching for a Treasure
Uncertain about his place in the world, Duke leaves the Lagoon of Whispers in search of answers. In his adventures he visits Mermaid's Hideaway, Kraken's Fall, Wanderer's Refuge and finally Old Salts Atoll.
Around this same time Stone Tablets began being uncovered in various parts of the Sea of Thieves.
The Silver Blade Sails Again
A new crew of pirates, led by Captain Dimitri, make it to the Sea of Thieves. Soon after their arrival they find an abandoned ship, The Silver Blade. Presuming it had been raised by Merfolk and left abandoned they take it for themselves.
Looking to strike it rich, Dimitri followed a map given to him that led to an Ancient Vault. They make swift work of it, discovering a Chest that constantly weeps and a pile of bones.
Upon leaving the Vault they are attacked by several Skeleton Ships as they attempt to return to an Outpost. Eventually they shake them but are far from any known island. The Chest continues to weep and seep actual water into their ship without any sign of stopping.
Before they know it, they are surrounded by what they originally assumed were Merfolk but later discovered were Sirens.
Captain Dimitri and his Silver Blade meet an end being dragged down into the depths of the Sunken Kingdom.
The Awakening of the Fort of Fortune
A rare, savagely scarred Skull Cloud is rising over the Sea of Thieves. Its red eyes and its accompanying sound resonating across the seas signals the awakening of a Fort of Fortune.
The fabled loot locked in this new fort's vault is guarded with powerful foes including Skeleton Captains, Skeleton Lords and Ashen Lords.
Jack Sparrow Sails to the Sea Of Thieves
Using the power of the Greatest Pirate Treasure, Captain Jack Sparrow opens a portal to the Sea of Thieves, closely followed by Davy Jones.

The Dark Brethren are Formed
The Cursed Captain's Arrival at Sailor's Grave
Fleeing with a hold full of treasure, The Golden Hare retreated into a peculiar storm that turned out to be a Tunnel of the Damned. The Cursed Captain and his crew ended up at Sailor's Grave in the Sea of the Damned.
In a desperate attempt to keep the Ferry of the Damned from ever coming to Sailor's Grave, the Cursed Captain snuffs out the light of the lighthouse and defeat the lighthouse keeper. In retaliation his crew grow restless of being trapped in the Sea of the Damned and mutiny, taking the Captain's skull and locking him away in a cage.
Some of the crew opt to take the treasure and hide it in Dead Man's Grotto, whilst a few remain in the town of Sailor's Grave.
Saving the Pirate Life
Jewels of the Deep
To help calm the waters, Larinna has enlisted pirates to hunt down the new threats from the darkest depths of the ocean.
Shortly thereafter, a mysterious melody is heard throughout the Sea of Thieves. Trading Company representatives are convinced that this phenomenon is a result to the recovery of Mermaid and Siren Gems, and request pirates work to hand in more.
Gradually, they began to be able to pinpoint and approximate the location of those strange sounds in different places of the sea.
Exploring the Sunken Kingdom
Mysterious sunken structures began to awaken in Sea of Thieves. Created by the Sirens themselves, these newly uncovered Shrines were built with a wicked purpose.
Intrepid adventurers seeking the mysteries of the Sunken Kingdom have written their discoveries into journals and scattered them throughout the Siren Shrines. Larinna has enlisted pirates to find back these journals and uncover the Legend of the Sunken Kingdom.
Fury of the Damned
For the fourth year of the Festival of the Damned — the event to celebrate The Ferryman — The Pirate Lord himself encouraged crews to fight together in a common goal to dispatch undead threats wherever they lurked. Ramsey supplied the Bilge Rats to reward the pirates who participated in these actions, but his motives remain a mystery.

The backroom located in Wanda's workshop hideout was found partially destroyed, as the flags bearing Flameheart's insignia had been torn off, various other depictions smudged or sullied and the figurehead of his vessel, the Burning Blade, pulled down.
However, an open Box of Wondrous Secrets was left in the middle of the room. Inside was a sparkling green nothingness very similar to the waters found in the Sea of the Damned.
