Hoy There!

The name of the Crew is On the Shmut, we are under the Flag Doomed, and most of our crew members call Admiral Island their home and are most active from 8Am-3PM Game Time (PST).

Our booty cut is considered by most "harsh for jobbers" being set at 76%/Jobbers Delight. The cut is set this way to make it worth the time of the navvers who run high risk adventures. (I.E. Cit Runs, Friglantis, Cursed Isles)

The basic goal of the individuals here in On the Shmut is to have fun. Whether you are a dock tart, inn dweller, or puzzler, you will probably enjoy the conversation and runs that are conducted here. We are a very mature (by mature I mean our average as is 18+) and at times, a very vulgar crew, so if some controversial words or comments offend you, this probably isn't the place for you.

We are also very into blockading inside our flag, if you are looking to possibly learn how to blockade navigate or even just get involved as an XO, we would love to have you.

Promotions are almost completely based on the captains discretion with almost every recruit being promoted straight to officer*. Even though it is solely my discretion, I do have a couple generalities I look for below, but, not nescasarily in the order listed.

#1: Basic knowledge of at least some puzzles or game mechanics or an evident willingness to learn and progress if you do not have the basic knowledge**.
#2: Be able to keep a cool composure, I don't want to have my SO's have rage fits and represent the crew poorly.
#3: Obviously have my trust when you are promoted to FO or SO cause you will then have access to hundreds of unlocked ships.
#4: Time spent in the crew.
#5: An evident willingness to be a part of the crew by what you put into the crew. (I.E. Time donated, communication***, activity, etc...)


If you like what you hear and would like to give us a try as a new home for you, get in contact with Bestboy (Me) or any of my SOs in game or send me a PM.


*If you do not know the basics of the game, there is a possibility I may not even permit you into the crew if you do not show the willingness or comprehensive ability to learn.
**You do not nescasarily have to have stellar stats for promotions, if you were to look at mine, most of my crews is better than mine, its also you being able to understand the mechanics of things such as MAA'ing, how kades work, how to run a successful pillage, etc...
***For those of those who do use 3rd party programs to communicate (I.E. ventrillo) this is a very active vent crew where at almost any time of the day you will find someone on our crews vent to converse with.

The crew Custer's Ranks is currently recruiting


I am seeking players who are new to the game, Interested in blockading, and enjoy competitive PvP environments. If you have never been involved in this type of activity that is ok. We are willing to teach you the skills you need to be successful. All you need to bring to the table is the motivation to learn, and the ability to execute.

My goal for the crew in the short term, is to build up a semi-elite PvP oriented crew, and provide mentorship for newer players who are looking to learn.

If you are interested send me a PM on the forums, or a /tell in game.

Hello!

The crew 'Ejusdem Generis' is recruiting pirates.

1. Crew: Ejusdem Generis

2. Division of booty and crew cut: Jobber's Delight, 25% restock

3. Basic aims of crew: Casual and stress-free fun! We mostly pillage, run Kraken Hunts and CI's.

4. Terms for promotion: Pirate rank upon reading crew info, having some basic experience with duty puzzles, and rhyming for the crew. Officer+ rank requires additional experience, more rhyming, and in-crew training. We tailor this depending on the experience of the individual pirate.

5. Contact: Woodenwing or any on-line officer. You can type '/cwho Ejusdem Generis' to find out who all are online.

We are a fairly new crew. Our crew is very active with pillages and various other activities, and we hope to move on to doing Sea Monster Hunts and other activities. We are happy to help folks explore other aspects of gameplay (SMH running, merchanting, trinket collecting etc.)

We are into Kraken Hunt's a lot and run them atleast twice a day. We make it a point to allow crew members on board and will job new pirates to atleast one of the Kraken Hunt's so they can earn their trophies and learn. We promote our crew members to run pillages/KH's themselves and provide the needed training for the same.

Feel free to PM or hit me up in-game if you are interested in joining.

Best Regards,

- WW

----ACCESS DENIED----

ACCESS DENIED by name but not by nature, we are currently recruiting for all positions. We are a semi-elite crew but even if you don't feel you are at that level, we will get you there.

A friendly bunch, we chat daily, pilly, kraken hunt, cit, cursed, flots and cade on a regular basis. If thats not for you, we have loads of shoppes and island you can be part of, come grab a job in our shoppes or get involved with the trading side of the game.

Our booty division changes depending on what we are running but with a simple tell it can be amended to suit your need.

RISE THROUGH THE RANKS, our promotion table is great. Recently we have seen some of our pirates rise to Senior Officer (SOs) and some of our SOs make Governors in the flag!Promotions will be awarded based on a combination of stats, recruitment abilities and bnav skills.

We train our guys, we look after our guys. If you feel you belong with us, ask Emerlaus, Jakusmaximus or Nujabes in game for more details.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SAILING WITH YOU :)

The Colony is recruiting for all ranks. The Colony derives its name from being the offshoot of the Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV) free company (the FFXIV term for guild) Lighthouse <LH>. Our booty cut is Jobber's Delight, 10% restock cut. We feel a 10% restock cut provides the best balance between jobbers and OIC profit margins.

We are a social crew, focused on pillaging, sea monster hunts, and poker.

To know our ranks, we will first dive into <LH> ranks and give The Colony equivalents.

General = Captain: The General is the leader of <LH>/The Colony.
Colonel = First Mate or Senior Officer: The Colonel is expected to be a leader of <LH> when the General is offline.
Major = Senior Officer: The Major is expected to be an officer who helps resolve conflict between leaders and members, but the Major is not necessarily a leader de jure of <LH>. However, the Major is a leader de facto.
Lieutenant = Fleet Officer The Lieutenant is a person who specializes in raids, or in this game, larger pillages or sea monster hunts.
Sergeant = Officer The Sergeant is a person who specializes in small instances, or in this game, smaller pillages.
Corporal = Officer The Corporal is basically a rank that exists for long term Privates who desire more out of the game.
Private = Pirate
No equivalent, but lower than Private = Cabin Person

Now, since this is Puzzle Pirates, we will have a ranking system for promotion.

Cabin Person = Either you are one of Sonikku's alts, or you have been placed here for punishment.
Pirate = Automatic.
Officer = Know basic battle navigation skills, or own a ship that isn't a sloop. You can become an officer, however, by owning at least 90,000 net worth in ships. This means one ship that isn't a sloop or more, or two sloops or more.
Fleet Officer = Have the trust of my first mate, or I, or run a successful Sea Monster Hunt, excluding Kraken Hunts, sinking flotilla, or blockade navigating.
Senior Officer = Have the trust of my first mate, and I. Note the difference between SO and FO.

So, a question you may be asking is, how do I gain trust with the leaders of The Colony? The answer boils down to two things, communicate and socialize often in crew chat, and don't cause drama in crew chat.

If interested, contact Sonikku or Iamnotfat on Puzzle Pirates, or Sonikku Hedgehog on Final Fantasy XIV, Gilgamesh server.

Greetings! I'm looking to get my crew going! Do you have what it takes to be a Black Hearted Scallywag? I started this crew many moons again, but left the game due to other priorities. Now I'm back and I'm looking to get this crew going!

1/ Black Hearted Scallywags - Independant - Emerald Ocean (usually around Admiral and Descarte)
2/ Booty divided evenly
3/ A crew to pillage with! Soon to join blockaides!
4/ Terms for promotion
****Promotion Requirements****

* Cabin Person: You will always be joined as a pirate. There will be no cabin persons in the crew, except as a punishment.

* Pirate: Automatic

* Officer: Solid in Sail, Bilge, Carp, Guns and duty nav. Also must be Narrow at Bnav. When you have these stats contact a Senior Officer who can then help you begin Officer Promotion School. You must be in the crew at least one week.

* Fleet Officer: Given to Officers who run pillages often. This is at the discretion of the SO's. Master Bnav is a must.

* Senior Officer: Special position assigned to Loyal, Active, Trusted members. Also, this position is given at the discretion of SO's and Captain.

Captain: Levius (Emerald Ocean, Gull)

Booty Share Settings: Officer Club
Restock 5%
Crew Cut: 95%

Primary Focus: Pillaging
Secondary Focus: Officer Training
Tertiary Focus: Kraken Hunting


Information:

Leverage is a brand new crew that aims to provide that well-deserving feeling when you are promoted to the rank of which you have deserved and worked hard (with fun) to earn!

Our Officer Club Booty Share setting will seem, at first glance, like a cash grab to players who don't understand the division. To balance this out, we only ask for 5% restock of pillages because the Officer in Charge of the Pillage will already have a higher pay cut during victories in pillages.

When we run Kraken Hunts (if we ever get maps), we switch the setting to Even & 10% restock, but when we are just pillaging, it is the current setting.

Justification for our Officer Club Setting:

Not every person has time to play the game long enough to maintain their officer badges. Therefore, for our own crew member's sake, they are given the bonus share settings.

We further balance this out by re-dividing the booty by adding excess post-restock POE back into the chest, and then only divide for jobbers who were able to remain on the ship until the end, and we subtract 1 share from officers on board. The officers already get their extra cuts anyways, and the re-division bonuses to jobbers helps justify our settings.

We hope to gain the reputation of a respectable pillaging crew. We only aim to be a prestigious and well known crew who provides superb officer training at the cost of a small price of 5k (for the time, effort, and greeting card which will be given to you as your graduation diploma). Proceeds go to a stock and is saved for distribution to officers.

Our crew settings may be unpopular, but we can assure you we have creative content to make it fair. Thanks! -Levius.

Ranks and Requirements:

Expulsion = Caused by Theft. Period.

Cabin Person = multiple cases of disrupting the environment of the crew.

Pirate = Granted upon joining the crew. Officers can be demoted to this rank if they abuse their rank or disrupt

Officer = Granted upon completing Officer Training, or you have your own ship AND you are already experienced. (You must save up 5,000 poe for Officer Training. The purpose is to discipline you with financial management, and you WILL feel well deserving of your rank. After that you can keep all the poe you gain. The Poe will go towards crew stock for distribution). You WILL have superb, top-notch, 1 on 1 Officer Tutorials with Levius and will be treated with the highest care and given the highest service of training.

Fleet Officer = Exceed expectations from being an Officer, and Senior Officers recommend you to the Captain. Activity requirements are partial.

Senior Officer = Other Senior Officers and the Captain have seen your efforts and activity to the point of which you have become trustworthy enough to operate under your own wisdom and judgement.

Expectations under each rank:

Pirate = Do your best on a duty station! Yarrgh!

Officer = Show your skills of leading the pillage! and manage your jobbers well!

Fleet Officer = You are entrusted with proper distributions of stock if you are assigned to do so, and you also have a higher responsibility of delegating orders to normal officers who may be in command of smaller things!

Senior Officer = You are the wise bunch who know exactly what you are doing. Let people run as they will, and look for those who exceed expectations and report to me. You also have the liberty of being entrusted with the entire fleet of ships and can also delegate management of jobbers, stock, and distribution to Fleet Officers, and Officers.

-----

We define the term "Active" as the member operating under his rank accordingly. "Active" does not mean you play everyday. We do not ask that you have to log in every single day to retain your rank. What we request is that when you DO play, you function accordingly towards the rank that you have earned and deserve. Your crew cut shares are fair and proper according to the badge requirements you need to even function as your rank in the game.

It makes sense to pay officers a little bit more to buy doubloons with poe, and pay pirates and jobbers less who do not need badges in the first place. To further balance all this out, our 'Re-Division after Restock' policy is done for the sake of the Jobbers.

Thank you! - Levius

-----

Conclusion:

If you seek to be a part of a crew that respects your rank and allows you to function as the role you worked hard to puzzle and earn, come join Leverage!

Our short term goal as of now is to get up to 20 Members so that we can all pillage together and work together to bring back the core mechanic of the game to life!
