Kameraden!

 

Our beloved king, the König von Preußen,wants to make an announcement to his loyal subjects regarding the recent unsettling news in the New World.

His Majesty, feels that the interests of our glorious Nation in the neuen Welt might be in danger.

Therefore, his Greatness has decided to increase the presence of our ambitious Navy in the West Indies.

 

All seamen, experienced and inexperienced, captains and ambitious landsmen willing to start a new life at sea are hereby invited to appear to the nearest Königlich Preußische West Indische Compagnie and enlist. Seine Majestät promises adventure,fame and the pay to be delivered accurately every week!

 

His Majesty is also willing to grant Letters of Marque to all vessel owners who are willing to pursue a career of a privateer against the enemies of our glorious state.



 

“We are an army with a state now we shall rise to an empire with our navy”

We are a company specializing in privateering and other tasks. Because of recent european events (Napoleon was sent into exil) and the return of former annexed land by the french to the prussian crown our Company can now sail under the flag of their true origin. Our close connection to the Marineministerium allowed us to provide a decent amount of Kaperbriefen to our employed captains.

No not this way. We normally hunt in small groups with a variety of ships. Therefore some captains might get discrimnated in a chase or capture because of their ship capability. So we share the loot and prizemoney between all involed captains equal. Furthermore we support each other and new players whenever they cross our path.
