Hidden dangers, treasures and fame present themselves to those that seek to become one with the world, and profit and advancement by some unusual means will follow!
As recalled by Ambassador Vartigus, an intriguing and poignant tale tells of Captain Sharffenberger, a smart and wealthy man courted by royalty who wanted him to marry one of their daughters. His heart however belonged to another, a love from his youth who was never forgotten. Adelaide Rosecraft captured his heart and they forged an unrivaled unity but she was sent to a far away land never to meet again. Their last night together they embraced passionately and both vowed never to forget each other…
Roderick Sharffenberger followed in his father’s business and in his thirties he became captain of his very own ship, St. Augustine, left by his father. Throughout all these years he kept the eternal secret close to his heart and never gave up his endless search for his true love. Then unexpectedly he received a letter from Adelaide expressing her desire to meet him at Porto Bello. He hastily sets sail but a dark storm engulfed his vessel and while the sea raged, he made a pact with the darkness, to grant him and his crew life so that he may see Adelaide one last time.
Though his intentions were good, compromising with the dark side of life could reap no real rewards and now Sharffenberger roams the sea, undead! Coming ashore, looking for his lost love, he kills, unmercifully everything that stands in his path.
This sad but poignant event to some, takes place 3 times a day on every world for gamers to become part of. There are different level ranges for the event but all players can log in and participate. When Captain Sharffenberger dies he drops loot and random players who participate are awarded costumes (items that change their character’s appearance) for their efforts.
