Oak & Iron players rejoice! We are beefing up objectives and rewards for all Oak & Iron players! Jason Klotz, creator of, the awesome new Oak & Iron fan site, has joined with Firelock Games, Tales of the Sail, The Plunder Den and Blood & Pigment to participate in the 2022 Summer of Plunder event!

Timber and Sail is an awesome fan site for Oak & Iron and should be a great boon to players around the world. We’re honored have them on board in this Summer of Plunder campaign. Maker sure to check out the site if you haven’t yet. Its both well designed and full of great content.

Let’s check out the new weekly objectives. Fulfilling the weekly objectives will earn you and your nation extra campaign points, basically doubling your efforts!

More Loot!

Timber And Sail added more loot to the already large prize pool! You can win ships and custom Wake Tokens for helping build up the helpful community content on the new Gallery section of the website.

We’re excited to have additional support for Oak & Iron in this campaign. We love the game (Dan especially), and we’re excited for Jason’s new Timber and Sail online presence. Oak & Iron players gear up! The campaign is in full swing with over 40 submissions within the first two days, but only a handful of those submissions are Oak & Iron games.

You can find all the preliminary campaign information on the campaign home page on Blood & Pigment and you can submit your games here using the online submission form. There will be weekly update posts throughout the summer on Blood & Pigment in addition to updates from Firelock Games, Tales of the Sail, The Plunder Den, and Oak & Iron’s own Timber and Sail!

As a final parting shot, I’ll drop in the current campaign statistics (5/31) after two days of war in the Caribbean.

The Spanish and English have come out of the gate strong! You French, Dutch, and Pirate players have some catching up to do. Get gaming!

  1. Looking forward on the schedule for next week, I see the “Bark Wars” and have shifted to “Sloop Wars”; what happened? Been re-fitting my Barks the last two week in prep. Thanks.

    • Bark Wars is still on! This list is the Oak & Iron objectives (they have no Bark) which is parallel. See the campaign home page for the master list of both Oak & Iron and Blood & Plunder objectives.
