This coming Saturday, September 19th, is the 14th annual International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
Can I get an “Yo ho ho!” there matey?
To celebrate, World of Warcraft is holding a pirate celebration in Booty Bay on the 19th.
You can be turned into a pirate via a 12 hour costume buff (which persists through death) and hobnob with virtual versions of Cap’n Slappy and Ol’ Chumbucket (Mark Summers and John Baur), the co-creators of International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
Of course, there will be an achievement for attending. I would have shown up in any case, but an achievement is icing on the cake.
And since it is on Saturday, we’ll see if the instance group does their next run in pirate garb.
