SuperBombs are a great way to treat ye favorite pirate to a minigame based on "Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes".

SuperBombs can be acquired in auctions, random events, or stolen from chests. SuperBombs are planted on the pirate ye wish wit' !Pirates Use <Chest ID> <pirate>

A SuperBomb will explode when its countdown timer runs out or when a module is defused incorrectly. The only way to defuse a bomb is to disarm all of its modules before its countdown timer expires.

Modules: Each bomb will include up to 5 modules that must be disarmed. If ye fail to disarm any module, the bomb will explode. Learn how to disarm the modules by starting at page 5 of the bomb manual.

SuperBombs are defused wit' the !Pirates SuperBomb Defuse

Once a bomb has been fully defused, one of the modules will be destroyed and reduce the bomb's quality. The bomb will then be stored in the chest of the pirate who defused it. Higher quality bombs result in higher rewards, but not higher penalties.

Treasure Hunts:

Treasure hunts are a sort of scavenger hunt where you will receive a clue of where to sail. For example, if you received the following hint: "Tis be the key to the Floridas". The answer would be Florida Keys. To reach the next segment of the hunt, the ship will need to sail there. !Pirates Sail Florida Keys

Once you arrive at the presumed location, use the !Pirates Treasure Search command to find out if you are at the correct place. If you are, you may encounter a monster, gang, cannibals, skeletons, etc and must be defeated to progress. You may have to answer a riddle, or you may get lucky and just be given the next clue. For every leg completed, the crew will be rewarded doubloons!

The commands for Treasure Hunts are:

!Pirates Treasure - If only one treasure hunt, lists details for it. If more than one, lists the names of the sponsors. Use !Pirates Treasure <name of who sponsored> to lists details of the treasure hunt

!Pirates Treasure Progress - Shows your own ships and other ships' progress
!Pirates Treasure Search - Use this to find out if you are at the correct location. This is also used to answer riddles: !Pirates Treasure Search <answer>

Treasure hunts consist of segments. The expiration for Treasure Hunts is based on the number of segments. Currently, the formula is: Segments * 2 hours = Expiration time

The first ship to complete the Treasure Hunt will be rewarded based on the number of segments. More segments = greater reward. If the clues to where the next location is too hard, they will be revealed every 1.5 hours, per segment.


Buried Treasure:

Ye can bury doubloons n' retrieve the treasure 2 days later for a bonus. After 3 days, the treasure will be unearthed n' can easily be found. After 4 days, the treasure will be lost.
