    Nice one! I think those pictures and videos there are a bit out-of-date though. Hopefully one day that can be taken care of too. :doff

    I have been doing some playing with a couple of designs and I had this one printed just to see how it turned out. I present you the first Official "Unofficial" Pirates Ahoy Hearts of Oak T-Shirt!

    I think it looks pretty good, although I do need to change the fonts. I might also try one with a ship and the half logo. I haven't worn it anywhere yet, but I plan on shamelessly self promoting every chance I get!

    This is indeed the idea I had in mind, once I get the design finalized of course. Glad you mates like it! :onya

    If anyone has any suggestions I would be more than happy to hear them. They didn't have the Pieces of Eight font, but I can upload it so they can use it. I don't think the picture really does the printing justice, the graphics printed really nicely.

    I'll eventually (soon-ish?) have full-sized and detailed artwork finished that compliments and acts as concept art for the Isaak and Noelle storyline. I intend to sell prints of the work on my art page, but should the work on the storyline go ahead we can also use it freely online to promote the game. I'm thinking we'd use in in an article about the storyline or something just to get more content out there. We could attach an HoO logo or watermark so the original can't be copied from images we post since I'm using my work to fund my sailing and I do want to sell it...

    I can also promote HoO on my page with the artwork, but since it's connected to selling stuff (prints, in this case) I don't know if it would be entirely appropriate.

    Here's the oreliminary sketch of the one I've started now; had to switch to my phone to get it.

    Since it's been awhile, that's the vessel that we had intended to give Isaak.

    Edit: Is the image loading? Isn't for me.
    Not important though, the actual one will have WIP images posted eventually.
