The Albatross is a semi-regularly scheduled event focusing on gambling that makes its way around Elanthia.
The riverboat was originally owned by Captain Lahveew and ownership was transferred to Captain Gostahl in early 2012, with a tie in to the Mayor Walkar storyline as the reason behind the transfer. Captain Parlay won The Albatross from Gostahl and is the current owner.

As with most events, shop owners are sometimes around to provide specialized services.
Uncommon lock pick types, including neck worn and hidden under the tongue.
Darts for the dartboard located elsewhere on the riverboat, dice, coins, cigars and souvenirs.
Previously owned by Vahmyr and located on the riverboat, this shop is now run by Cidolfhus and situated directly next to the gangplank to the Albatross. Sells LFM gear, pirate-themed items - some of which will alter your appearance, and weather scripted coats (released 4/1/12).
Weather scripted coats will check the environment for their verb traps - inside, snowing, raining, ashy (Teras), and climate.
- Off the rack is open/close, wear/remove.
- First tier is pull/push get/put, and having a hood added will change pull/push.
- Second tier (fully unlocked) is rub, toss, turn, clean.
You can purchase a stock tattoo for 25,000 silver. Race / Trading skill does not affect this price.
The grandiose deepening limits for this event are as follows:
- 160lbs - Back, cloak, and some shoulder containers.
- 70lbs - Hanging off the belt and some shoulder containers
- 50lbs - Over-the-front, and various other smaller containers
- 16lbs - Tiny containers like thigh sheaths, ankle sheaths and waist worn stuff.
Containers are not automatically deepened to the max, so it is highly recommend already max deepened containers are brought to this event, and they will be deepened in 10% increments until maxed.
