    We had tons of fun with the item concept contest back in September, so this month we’re doing another one!

    Submit your your neat ideas for equippable game items in this thread, using the format provided. We’ll select a shortlist of fun and exciting concepts, then the community (you) will vote on your favorites!

    The most popular concept will be released into the game as a powerful new item! The player with the winning submission will have the final result awarded to their inventory, as well as a bonus package of 50 Favor Points!


    To submit your concept to the GearJam, please follow the format below:

    NAME: What your item is called. Please keep this under 25 characters
    TYPE: (Weapon, Matey or Ship)
    DESCRIPTION: This is “look and feel” information that tells the artist what you have in mind. Try to include some visual information such as details about shapes, colors, textures, etc. If you wish you can also include conceptual information to help add flavor. This is can be pretty much anything from an evil curse to a wonderful smell to a tendency to make the wielder crave baked goods. Please try to keep it short!
    REFERENCE IMAGE(optional): If you wish, you can also include a drawing or reference image to help explain what you have in mind.

    We welcome your most wild and imaginative GearJam submissions are welcome, but please try to keep your entries within these guidelines:
    • Try to stay within the theme of the game
    • Keep it Safe For Work! No obscene items or images, please!
    • Don’t spam the thread! Multiple entries are fine, but take your time developing your ideas and space out your submissions.
    The deadline for submissions is Jan 22nd, 2015, so be sure to get yours in before then. Submissions can be put in this thread.

    GearJam finalists will be announced the following week. The winner will be decided by community vote, so remember to check back in the final week of January and pick your favorite!

    Random idea would be a mix of buyable mateys, items or ships with the resulting image being a mix of the items. Thename would, of course be something along the lines of mashup, hybrid, salvage, or something similar.

    Name: Amputation Blunderbuss

    Type: Weapon

    Description: The Amputation Blunderbuss has a curved blade under the barrel. The blade is the length of the barrel and starts at the trigger guard. The stock is white, made of bone, and heavily stained with blood.
    Knives used for amputations during the 18th century were typically curved, because surgeons tended to make a circular cut through the skin and muscle before the bone was cut with a saw.

    Name: Psychotic Surgeon

    Type: Matey

    Description: The Psychotic Surgeon stands in a pose similar to the Debonair. He wears a simple red shirt and bandana, with black pants and boots, and he holds the Amputation Blunderbuss in his left hand and a severed tibia bone in his right hand.

    Name: Bone Collector

    Type: Ship

    Description: The Bone Collector is an early 18th century brig with two masts. A human figure missing both lower legs and both hands is carved in to the front of the ship, and the skeletal remains of hundreds of severed hands and lower legs of fallen enemies hang over the edges of the ship. The ship is positioned in the picture similar to the Tempest to show off the figurehead and hanging bones. The sails are white and heavily stained with blood.

    The background of all three items should be a dark and foggy night with the images of skeleton hands reaching out of the fog.

    Henry Every 1653-1696
    Richest pirate ever. was the source of the first ever world wide manhunt and was never caught. Probably died in england poor.

    Jacquotte Delahaye -- Back from the dead red -- haitian mother and french father and was female very cool what little is know about her.


    Queen Anne's Revenge -- Blackbeard's ship (american badass, you know its true)
    English pirate Edward Teach, more commonly known as Blackbeard, captured the Concorde, a French-owned slave ship, in the West Indies in 1717 and made the vessel his flagship. Slave ships, which often featured a central partition to protect the crew against a slave uprising, made good pirate ships because they were built for speed. Blackbeard added 26 guns to the vessel, which already boasted 14, making the renamed Queen Anne's Revenge one of the most powerful ships in American waters.


    boasted nearly 50 guns and a crew of 150


    css alabama
    very destructive reputation built in 1862. designed for speed and deception. was 220 ft long 32 feet wide and the forward pivot gun fired 100 pound shells. was known to average the destruction of one union ship every three days.

    weapon (my fav all time)
    Double Barrel gun. better yet dont know if they ever made one but a double barrel blunderbuss would be awesome.
