Norse Raiders currently based around Lima
80% + Jobber's Delight
Promotions are based on experience and skill. Officers are currently offered, Senior Officers are not openly offered, nor are Fleet Officers.

Contact OneShotPaddy, NakedWinner or Sodaguzzler for recruitment info.


So we're the Norse Raiders who are a chapter of the House Valdyr gaming community. We have chapters in many games across the web and are predominantly adults. For this game we've lowered our recruitment threshold to 16 yrs. with the strict understanding that we're a mature community.

When you join our crew you get the option to play in any of our other games of varying genres and styles. We also require website membership. Teamspeak voice chat is OFFERED but not required for Puzzle Pirates.

Note: to those in other arch's, we WILL transport. Contact an officer or above to get info on that.

We're a pillaging-oriented crew and welcome all pirates, from the newest greenie to the crustiest veteran. Our mission is to make the ocean fun for everyone, so hop on board! Come join our adventures on the high seas as we set out to bring the best of old-style virtual piracy back to Puzzle Pirates.

We're currently recruiting at all ranks; at this time, those folks who wish to be Officers will preferably have at least Distinguished or better battle navigation standing and their own ships. Incoming Officers of any rank from other crews will be given the rank of Officer immediately so that you retain the use of your own ships; promotion to Fleet or Senior Officer will be at the SOLE discretion of the Captain, in consultation with the crew's Senior Officers. Under NO circumstance will anyone enter Tempest Toss'd as a Fleet or Senior Officer without a consensus among the Captain and all Senior Officers of the crew. All other newcomers to our crew automatically start as Pirates.

As our officer staff and membership expands, we will be offering Atlantis raids, Cursed Isle & Haunted Seas explorations, and flotilla and blockade participation; if these are things you like to do and/or lead, please consider joining us!

Promotion Requirements:
Pirate to Officer:
1.) Demonstrated leadership; this means maturity and good judgement when dealing with your fellow crewmembers, support and enthusiasm for the crew, our jobbers, and the ocean at large when you're out jobbing yourself.
2.) Some time in the crew, so that we know you and you know us.
3.) Some stats and experience, experience being the more important of the two; as a general rule, Sails or Rigging, Carp or Patching, Bilging and Gunnery should be at Broad, but this is not cast in stone.

Officer to Fleet Officer:
You must have the trust of the Captain and Senior Officers and a high level of activity in the crew; pillaging, encouraging Pirates and fellow Officers and recruiting new members to our crew. A Fleet Officer is not just an Officer who's been here a while. A Fleet Officer is someone that the Captain and Senior Officers consider an exceptional crewbie and a person who in time will join their ranks.

Fleet Officer to Senior Officer: The Captain and Senior Officers will offer this rank when they think it's obvious that you should be among them. A Senior Officer in Tempest Toss'd is almost a co-Captain in their own right, with authority to promote, demote and make decisions that effect the crew, with no more questioning than would be required to answer "why". They are people we trust with something that we take seriously even while we're having fun. You won't have to ask for this promotion, we'll know when it's time.

Please note that Officers of all ranks will generally be expected to run at least one open pillage (open to all comers) per week, in addition to any elite or selective pillages/hunts/voyages you may run. This crew is intended to be a fun experience for everyone. :)

Crew Rules:
1.) RESPECT. You are expected to show respect for every pirate you encounter. Not just officers, not just members of Tempest Toss'd, EVERY PIRATE YOU ENCOUNTER.
You don't have to like them, you don't have to agree with them or their actions, but you DO have to show respect. If you are in a position where it is appropriate to chastise, punish or correct someone, do so, as forcefully as is appropriate -- but do it respectfully and constructively. Your actions reflect upon the entire crew -- particularly when you are jobbing; if you do not agree with the way someone is running a pillage, make your polite apologies and leave. (Yes, this even includes mine.)

2.) Please ask PTB (Permission to Board) before boarding a ship with only one or two crewmembers on it and/or which has not been announced as an open or crew pillage.

3.) Please do NOT leave a ship in battle except in an emergency. If you have to go, SAY SO, preferably in vessel chat, or at the very least in a tell to the Officer in Charge.

4.) Don't be afraid to ask questions! There are no such things as stupid ones.

The Rum Rats, a crew that's been sailing the Green Seas for the past 8 years, is looking for experienced, inexperienced, fun and energetic pirates to join their ranks.

If you are ambitious, and want to discover the fun side to the ocean, in a welcoming, crazy and enjoyable environment, then The Rum Rats want to hear from you!

Just let myself, Arrobyn, or any Senior Officer know you would like to join us, and we will go from there!

Please feel free to message me in game and join the crew. We are a new crew established in late September 2014. Come be a part of this new and exciting movement partnered with BlueBasil and her crew Whiplash as we take our new flag New Vegas to the top.

About The Crew: We are an Oligarchy and the reasoning for that is everyone who has obtained the rank of Senior Officer deserves the right to vote and have a say in the on-goings of the crew. It is to much for one person and nobody likes a tyrant or a dictator captain. After all the game is about having fun isn't it? That's what we are about here in Risk. With high risk come high reward. You can sit on the sidelines and wish it to happen, or you can get your head in the game, get your hands dirty, and make it happen!

About Me: I started playing YPP in 2006, and have been playing on and of since. Recently after coming back I ran into some political issues from within my crew. This inspired me to break off create my own crew and rejoin the flag. I will be working diligently and persistently to grow the crew and become a well known entity in the ocean. My current career in the real world has really prepared me to take on such a task in the pirate world. Politics, growth, human resources, mediation, money management, these are things I deal with on the day to day basis.

Thanks, ~Xilophone


-Always respect follow crew members!

-Try to do your best in every pillage and obey requests for stations!

-Don't leave a ship during battle, this will result in demotions if not justified!

-Team during battle! This is important to win Sword Fights and Rumbles. Not all officers are experienced in Bnav, and some will rely on the ability of their crew to perform during battle! (To team click on the head of the opponent team, you will see a colored dot near it, teams of 2 and 3 in SF and 3 or 4 in rumble are encouraged.)

Rules for every O, FO, and SO:

-Try to not fight with other pirates/officers of the crew, if you have a problem we can solve it together. Speaking to the Captain about it would be a better idea than leaving the crew.(This will be heavily enforced!!!)

-Don't ever steal goods and money from vessels! (or you'll be reported and BANNED. Yes, we've all seen the happen)

-No alts in other crews without the captain's permission.

-Always attempt to recruit at the end of any voyage!

-Any FO plus gets an even split of the restock profits after a Pilly on all War Brig or larger ships!

-Always remember at any time you are representing the crew, so while in inn's or on the poker table be on your best behavior. :D

Promotion Requirements Pirate: Just join the crew. If you do not have a pirate badge, one will be provided!

Officer: Minimum 4 Broads and 2 Respected plus piracy skills

Fleet Officer: Fleet Officers can only be appointed by SO's and/or the Captain. This is a position of trust, and will not be given out to everyone.

Senior Officer: Senior Officers may only be appointed by the Captain of the crew. However SO's may vote or suggest to have another pirate join the ranks. No one will be recruited as Senior Officer, this position must be earned. RISK

Good Evening

We're some experienced pirates that have recently started a new crew. It's called 'The Plunder Down Under'. The crew is based ocean wide - with our crew hall in Jade.
Promotion requirements are skill based (opposing to experience based). For officer ranks, some battle navigation experience is expected. We are also willing to give people the opportunity to practice this.

For more information you can send me, rednass, a tell in-game.

Kind Regards

Peanut Butter Needs you!

Ahoy one and all! Are ye looking fer that crew that will give ye your kick of peanut buttery goodness while ye pillage the high seas! Well look no further. We are looking for active, friendly and interested pirates who are looking to further themselves and have a bit of fun in the process. I am hoping to make this a very active crew and we will be joining a very active flag. I love to pillage and would like to also bring in pirates who are interested in the blockade game.

Why join? I want you because this is an interactive multiplayer based game with a lot of different types of pirates. I want to play the game with anyone and everyone that sees the game as a way to have fun and enjoy the different aspects that piracy has to offer them in their downtime. A place to learn and to teach and to have a laugh and be accepted.

How do you achieve ranks?
Cabin Boy - You are a total newb to the high seas, and are good fer nothing but licking peanut butter off the cap'ns boots while yer hammering nails into the decks! Just join and you will obtain this rank!

Pirate - If you want to obtain the rank of Pirate, you must show a competency in at least one puzzle, and you will become a Pirate!

Officer - Once you have sailed around with us on a few voyages and have an officer badge. I will see fit to give you a promotion to Officer! In order to fulfill the duty of an officer completely, you must obtain some sort of a Ship and be able to sail it, which means having charts and Its also extremely important to understand the concepts of restocking etc. I am happy to run officer training and develop you as much as my abilities will allow. I will also support people with ships and supplies. People with prior officer experience just need to let me know and provided you seem genuine and have Narrow exp BNAV you make the cut.

Fleet Officer - After awhile of sailing as an Officer and i can see that you can be trusted (not to ransack vessels) and can be a good example and spokesperson for the crew. With this great responsibility and position of trust, you will be promoted to the rank of Fleet Officer, and i shall airmail you some of the cap'ns finest Peanut Butter!

Senior Officer - The rank of Senior Officer is extremely highly thought of and is a position of respect. I expect total devotion to crew activities and hard work. Displaying good puzzling ability and willingness to lead regular pillages. This involves Officer Training and being involved in a lot of the crew activities.

With all things though, the captains word is final and these are not hard and fast rules. As with all things in piracy the rules are meant to be broken. We also accept yer alts.

Please send me a PM or tell in game to join or if you have any questions.
