I guess I own a port now
Player-Owned Ports were released this week in RuneScape for players with level 90+ in one or more of fishing, herblore, runecrafting, prayer, thieving, and/or slayer. I have four out of six of them, so I'm in. I hopped over to the new portal in Port Sarim to check it out.
It's pretty elaborate. They mapped out a whole Eastern Lands archipelago (with six of the islands named after the mane cast of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, because the developer in charge is apparently a brony). You can get all sorts of upgrades for your boats, and hire different types of captains and crew and send them out on voyages to explore the Eastern Lands, bringing back resources, information, and fragments of scrolls that unlock new gear you can craft.
So far I've gotten to the second sector. It's pretty addictive.
