Let it be known that the Freebooting Pirate Anarchy of Arrgh! sails the seven seas. Our thirst for glory and plunder be as fierce as our thirst for rum, that be fierce indeed.

The Pirate Code

PirateAdvisory.jpg

The Pirate Code represents the guidelines by which Arrgh! operates.

Current

The current code came into effect in February of 2020 replacing the historical laws of Arrgh which were the guidelines since its inception in 2014.

Let thee know the laws of Arrgh!

  • Article I: Yo Ho, Yo Ho! A Pirate’s life for me – Anyone with the stones to join Arrgh’s merry band and terrorize the seven seas may do so if a Commodore or Admiral vouches for them. Shall a Pirate decide to leave the life of the sea behind them and leave Arrgh, they can do so at any time, for any reason, after informing the Admiralty, and may return at any time with a vouch from a Commodore or Admiral.
  • Article II: A Pirate’s word is their bond – A Pirate should never lie to another Pirate. Lying to Landlubbers should also be avoided, if it can be helped. If a mercenary or other type of Contract has to be canceled or be broken for whatever reason, the Client shall be notified accordingly and any corresponding upfront rewards shall be returned promptly. In any other agreements (beyond Contracts) sealed between a Pirate and another Pirate or Landlubber, Pirates should never break their word, shall the other party also honor their end of the deal.
  • Article III: Loose lips sink ships – Pirates sail with the Arrgh Crew and no one else. What other Pirates say and do does not reach Landlubbers’ ears. A Pirate should never leak outside the alliance any type of info that could get the Crew in trouble or hinder piracy activities. A Pirate should never share the details of Contracts offered to them (name of the Client, purpose, mission or even the actual existence of the Contract) or accept bribes to share the said information, even if the said contracts were not accepted.
  • Article IV: The Pirate Terror of the Sea – Arrgh members should maintain the panache and elan of a pirate. Landlubbers should fear an Arrgh member’s name before they meet them. This happens when Pirates fight hard, show no quarter, do what they say, and say what they mean. No one fears a Pirate who whines and cries on Discord and the Forums when things don’t go their way. Arrgh is being represented by each and every of its members.
  • Article V: Aye Aye Cap'n! – Any member of Arrgh may be promoted to any position, though higher ranks include more responsibilities. Pirates should take under consideration the advice from members with higher rank and respect their authority in the rare occasions a command is issued. Members of the Admiralty should never use their power for selfish reasons. (You can read more about ranks at the Arrgh’s Ranks System document.)
  • Article VI: Speak your piece, or hold your peace. - Every Pirate has a vote in affairs of moment. When the Admiralty puts a matter to Pirates’ vote, they should vote. Pirates should speak their piece on the matter or lose the right to complain about the issue later. After the vote is done, Pirates should spit on their hands, raise the sails, and turn the tiller in the direction the results of the vote suggest. 
  • Article VII: No striking one another on board – Personal disputes between Pirates should be resolved between the Pirates in private, without causing public drama. When the parties cannot come to any reconciliation, a member from the Admiralty can intervene so that a compromise can be reached.
  • Article VIII: Keep your cutlass sharp and your powder dry – A pirate should always be ready for a fight! This means staying active and having adequate resources on hand to fight a protracted battle. Opportunity knocks, but never for very long. Pirates should be ready to act when Landlubbers aren’t paying attention, and always be ready to get slotted defensively.
  • Article IX: Any man who falls behind is left behind – Captains that have gone inactive in-game for too long, without prior notice to a Commodore or Admiral, shall be placed back to Applicant status or be completely removed from the alliance. Once activity is resumed, they can be moved back to active membership by approval of the Admiralty. Activity on Discord is highly recommended and encouraged. Activity at the P&W Forums is optional and should not be taken lightly, as a Pirate’s words may be considered to represent Arrgh as a whole, in certain topics.
  • Article X: A Call to all, pay heed to the squall – Pirates should read the alliance announcements in-game as well as the messages sent to them by fellow Pirates. Keeping in touch with global politics and war affairs is also highly recommended.
  • Article XI: Yo, Ho! Haul together! Hoist the colors high! – At all times, Pirates should look for opportunities to participate in coordinated endeavors like mass-raids or raids organized on an Armada or a Strike Team level. Should a Pirate get attacked unprovokedly by Landlubbers, support from the rest of the Crew may be requested, which is encouraged to help. Pirates participating in such coordinated endeavors are expected to follow the guidelines of the corresponding leaders.
  • Article XII: Abandoning ship – Even though all Pirates are free to leave the life of the sea behind them (Article I), it should be made sure that this happens without hindering other members of the Crew. If a Pirate deserts the ship or their quarters in battle by leaving fellow Pirates behind, they shall be found guilty of cowardice. Such is a case when one Pirate arranges for peace for themselves in a coordinated raid, without contacting the other members of the strike team first.
  • Article XIII: Betrayal – Scurvy dogs who betray the trust of their fellow Pirates will walk the plank, at the discretion of the Admiralty. Any captain that harms other captains or Arrgh as a whole will be removed from the alliance (possibly with no chance of future reacceptance to it) and face further retributions.
  • Article XIV: Raid and Plunder – The members of Arrgh are free to undertake any expedition they desire in search for plunder. Raids gone south are the responsibility of the reckless Pirate to resolve. In some cases, due to various circumstances, a Do Not Raid (DNR) list may be imposed and shall be respected by the entirety of the crew.
  • Article XIV: To each Pirate, their Share – When in coordinated raids, the Pirates shall share their profits fairly. Also, the Pirate that sees a Sail first, shall have the best pistol or small arm aboard of her. That means that the ones engaging first on a target and then calling their fellow Pirates on to share the loots shall have the first beige, upon request. This “rule” is not strictly enforced, but Pirates are encouraged to consider how the loots can be shared between the members of a raid fairly. In case of a dispute that cannot be resolved, a member of the Admiralty will have to intervene.
  • Article XV: No pain, no gain – Every Pirate shall be called fairly in turn by the list on board of prizes. All Pirates can compete for rewards and awards based on their activities and performance. The results of the corresponding competitions or ranking systems shall be made public to the entirety of the Crew. Prizes are to be symbolic (as successful Raiders have no need for financial support) and be covered by the Arrgh bank.
  • Article XVI: Handling the Booty – Every Pirate shall be assisted in burying their loots. All Pirates are allowed (and encouraged) to use the Arrgh bank for safekeeping purposes and can contact a Commodore or Admiral for withdrawals. The Pirates bank accounts are regularly updated by the Banker. The Banker’s activities are subject to the Admiralty’s investigation. If the ones burying the loots defraud the company to the value of even one dollar in plate, jewels or money, they shall be marooned.
  • Article XVII: No prey, no pay – Only Pirates that make regular deposits to the Arrgh bank can request a loan from the bank that may be accepted at the discretion of the Banker. Every Pirate is expected to repay any debts to fellow Pirates or the Arrgh bank promptly.
  • Article XVIII: A Pirate Scum, not a Human Scum! – All Pirates are expected to draw a line between In Character (IC) activities and messages and Out Of Character (OOC) ones. Any Pirate is free to terrorize the seven seas, extort other leaders, steal banks and do all sorts of in-game crimes, as well as openly criticize or get in debates with other members of the P&W community. However, at no point should a Pirate cross the line between the sphere of the Game and the one of Real Life. Pirates found out to harass players (instead of their in-game nations or leaders) shall be punished.
  • Article XIX: Fair play – Pirates are free to pillage, to plunder, to riffle and loot, to kidnap and ravage and not give a hoot. However, all Arrgh members are expected to play by the rules of the Game. Game’s-rules-breaking behavior shall not be accepted.
  • Article XX: Abiding by the Pirate Code – Every Pirate who shall offend against any of these Articles shall be punished in a manner as the majority of the Crew or the Admiralty shall think proper. Any Pirates who shall not honor the Code may, among others, be forced to walk the plank, get keelhauled or be marooned.
  • Article XXI: A bad day Pirating is better than the best day as a Landlubber! – Enjoy the game and always remember to have fun!

Historical

The historical laws that governed Arrgh were created in 2014, during the alliance inception. They defined the principles with which Arrgh was built on. Now many years have passed since then, the laws grew obsolete, but the ideas behind them have not. All laws that came after have been based on the same ideas that Ogaden expressed in these first laws. In 2020, the laws were revised into a new Pirate Code that Arrgh follow to current date.

  • The Freebooting Pirate Anarchy of Arrgh! lives for fun, freedom and plunder. Anyone with the stones to join our merry band and terrorize the seven seas may do so if a Commodore or Admiral will vouch for them. Any captain of Arrgh may be promoted to any position though higher ranks include more responsibilities
  • The first rank of Arrgh! is the Admiralty led by the Grand Admiral, who speaks for Arrgh! as a whole and is the figurehead of the alliance. The Grand Admiral is otherwise the same as a regular Admiral. The Admiralty collectively makes all alliance-wide decisions by majority vote except for declarations of war and signing letters of marque. To promote a Captain or Commodore to Admiral or to demote an Admiral to Commodore requires a majority vote of the Admiralty.
  • The second rank is the Captains Council encompassing all the member captains of Arrgh. Commodores lead the Captains and provide on-the-scene leadership. Any admiral may promote a Captain to Commodore or demote a Commodore to Captain. Commodores are also given the right to vote for declarations of war or letters of marque.
  • The Captains of Arrgh! are free to undertake any expedition in search of plunder they desire, but should seek sanction from the Captains Council in a coordinated raid to avoid complications. Raids gone bad are the responsibility of the irresponsible Captain to resolve.
  • Should the Grand Admiral prove unworthy, the Admiralty or the Captaincy may mutiny at any time and select a new Grand Admiral. This is encouraged and should occur at the drop of a hat or just for the hell of it.
  • Anyone can leave Arrgh at any time for any reason, and may return at any time for any reason with a vouch from a Commodore.
  • Scurvy dogs who betray the trust of their fellow Captains will walk the plank, at the discretion of the Admiralty.

Formation

Arrgh was founded on December 19, 2014 by Ogaden who originally recruited from within the Random Insanity Alliance from Cyber Nations (CN). Recruiting expanded to the RIA's allies as well in an attempt to give Arrgh its own identity instead of just re-creating the same alliance from CN. Members from the Random Insanity Alliance, Farkistan, Global Order of Darkness, R&R, Shangri-La, and the New Sith Order came together to form Arrgh which led to Arrgh quickly gaining over 50 members in its first month. Since then, Arrgh has established a unique identity apart from its original founders and their former alliances.

Bounty

A Bounty Contract is a type of contract whereas an alliance or nation pays Arrgh to attack a specific nation to either defeat them or to do a specific amount or length of damage to them.

Preferential

A Preferential Contract was a type of contract in which an alliance maintained an association with Arrgh! after their protection contract became unnecessary due to their growth. The contract required no ongoing payment and were usually loosely defined or even undefined. They represented the alliance having a friendly relationship with Arrgh! in which the alliance could quickly & easily receive Arrgh! services should they find the need. This type of contract is not signed by Arrgh! anymore and was later superseded by the associate recognition.
