Arms of Chaos - Pirate Court
Thomas Blackwell posted a topic in Guilds, Clans and Trading companiesThese men are death incarnate. They are the tendrils of evil and the arms of chaos. If you play dice with the devil and lose, it is they he calls upon to collect what he is due. Captain! Arms of Chaos is a group of free men who refuse to bare the crushing obligations of authority, law, and civil obedience. We are not bound by the words of kings, men who would send a navy to fight in their place. Authority, respect, and loyalty are things to be earned, not blindly bestowed by rank, wealth, or social status. A man may only rule another man if the latter permits him. This mindset has been the cornerstone of AoC membership since the group was first founded. As free men residing on the very fringe of modern society, we still believe in a man's authority over his own person! No one ruler or board of rulers should have equal or greater power over a man or group of men than they themselves do. The AoC Court consists of eight seated captains who act as spokesmen for the AoC. If nations or fleets wish to engage the entire AoC in 'civil' negotiations they may do so through the Court. Seated captains have no more power, influence or sway over the AoC than a common member, and common members reserve the right to treat seated captains as they would any other equal. Seats do come with a few perks however... Each seat has a unique banner which serves as the seated captain's personal pennant in-game. (When custom pennants are added). and Each seat comes with certain bragging rights. Any common member may challenge a seated captain for his place in the Court. Once the seated captain has been made aware of the challenge he reserves the right to choose the class of ship the duel is to be fought in. If the defending captain loses the duel he gives up his seat and pennant to the challenger. The first eight Captains to join AoC will automatically be granted a seat in the Court. Challenging seated captains may begin immediately upon entry into AoC. The Black Mongoose is a forum dedicated to the under-class of Naval Action.
