Shipwreck!
Using the same Chaos Chest system you could add shipwrecks to the sea (or even floating crates) containing appropriate loot (gold, timber, wood up to map, shipbuilding module or astrolabe). This would lead to having players around the seas hunting for wrecks and players chasing those who hunt wrecks XD

yep!
That's something RoA is doing right for example and they could copy the idea (just like RoA devs copy some ideas from DnD).
The code structure for random stuff to appear in the world is already there for the chaos chest, so just re-use it for additional dinamic content

You mean like "flotsam" from UW?

Great idea.

I'd go a step further and say in order to loot these chaos chests you need to have a ship within the vicinity of the chest. Get people out on the high seas.

Great idea.  People love boats, but there is SO little content on the water currently.

People love boats. But only a couple clans actually own them. Unless you count rafts and launches, of course.

that's because there is currently little (and i am generous :-D) content for boats....why would you spend your night on a boat currently? you'll find no one in the seas, and will have basically nothing to do...so people don't even bother getting one
