You were looking forward to it, marked with a red cross on your Almanax like buried treasure on a map: Septangel 19. A day when you are entitled and encouraged to use and abuse colorful language! How about testing some of your new insults on LeChouque and the Queen of Thieves?

Celebrating the Me Hearty Party requires following some strict rules of inappropriateness. To start, wear slovenly attire. Then you need to drink far too much greedo rum if that isn't already part of your daily ritual. Next, you need to start using vulgar language and punctuate your sentences with thunderous belches. And one last thing: To ensure you enjoy resounding success, feel free to amputate a limb or two (so you can replace them with a wooden stump or metal hook, of course – let's not be crazy here!).

The Me Hearty Party is also a chance to rub shoulders with the worst vermin to be found in the World of Twelve. Let's just say that there's no shortage of options! To make it easier for you, we have selected two of the vilest, the bottom of the rum barrel!

The Captain of the Dark Hurl still hasn't been able to stomach the curse put on him many years ago by Moon (or was it Mama Vaudou? Will we find out the truth one day? It's a mystery…) LeChouque was never the nicest scallywag, but we have to admit that he's becoming increasingly unpleasant.

Nevertheless, you will have to make sacrifices and put up with his company if you want to win his magnificent shield. So, yes, he may make your head spin with stories of dart games gone wrong. And yes, you could get drunk just inhaling his breath. But what do you expect? You sometimes need to give something of yourself to claim victory (and scuttle any lily-livered seadogs who don't believe you can).

For the sake of equality, we have chosen someone quite different for your second opponent. She reigns over Srambad with the same belligerence as her so-called father, the god Sram himself. But the Queen of Thieves is much less wicked that her subjects. She may even have a beating heart… But that's for you to find out!

From Friday, September 16 at 3 p.m. (Paris time) to Monday, September 19, at 3 p.m. (Paris time), head to LeChouque's Boat, which is in the Skull Path area of Moon Island, and also the Throne Room of the Dark Court in the Shadowy Heights area of the divine dimension of Srambad.

If you show these two scoundrels that you're not some landlubber they can hurl idle threats at, you could win a LeChouque Shield* and a Queen of Thieves Shield*!

*Offer valid once per character. Monsters killed in arenas don't count. When you win the shields, they will automatically appear in your inventory.
