Captain Anjel's Log - by David "AnjelusX" Slauenwhite

Ahoy voyagers, the world has changed once again, with cartographers and historians scrambling to discover the wonders and mysteries to be found in South East Asia and Oceania. Sailing in the South Pacific has become the latest trial of adventure to tempt voyagers to push the limits of their endurance and explorer’s spirit. A whole new land mass has been opened up for discovery and not for the faint of heart to make the journey. I, myself have been aching to see what lies on those distant shores, hopeful to find new and interesting ports of call and discover yet unknown flora and fauna.
Along with this revelation, the mysterious ruins of Angkor Wat and the magic of South East Asia has appeared to further tempt our adventurous voyagers. Drinking in new architecture, exploring mythical ruins of the past and search for greater treasures and making amazing discoveries await any willing to make the journey. I marvelled at the sights of Jakarta, Malacca, and Surabaya, tasting the new air found in these exotic locations sparked my imagination as I prepared to venture into the ruins of Angkor Wat. There is so much history to be revealed and sought for, exciting treasures to be excavated and perils that might be lurking along new coast lines.
Even more challenges have arisen with these new revelations; nations have begun their epic struggles against their enemies with the seas turning into grand battlegrounds. Battle Campaigns will take willing participants into epic battles to control areas of the seas for their respective nations. When those nations are at war we sail to fight for the honour of our nation or willingly sign on as mercenaries to do battle for profit and glory. Travelling to the battle headquarters gives you time to mentally prepare yourself before you sail out to join the contest between countries, accumulating points as you sink the ships of the opposition. Winners of the battle is determined by the total points achieved by one side or the other so get out their and join the campaigns to win prestige and honour for your nation.
Finally the World Tour Challenge has been brought for the most ambitious and adventure seeking sailors of the world, filled with challenging and often dangerous missions to complete as you sail through the world, working to complete the World Tour and make a name for yourself. All these new additions make for exciting times ahead as we travel, battle, and explore the world around us. I look forward to the days ahead and discovering the many wonders of this world we have before us.
Safe Seas and Fair Breezes,
Captain Anjelus Xavier Infiniti
