The Democratic Republican Privateers


The Privateers were originally formed by the Democratic Republic to serve as a regional military, but have since declared their independence and, of their own accord, have set forth in a warlike manner to, by force of arms, attack, subdue, seize, and take all founderless regions and to subject them to our own force of authority. With this we hope to plunder, raid, and burn all lawless, broken, and defenseless regions that lay scattered throughout NationStates.

Join our Discord! | Telegram our Captain!





The sea burned red as ships sank and sailors cried, all watching as the harbinger of their fate sailed past. The privateers of the Democratic Republic cheered as their galleon left the burning fleet and opened fire upon the port city beyond. Captain Azadliq smelled the black powder from the cannon's volley, heard the screams of dying men, saw the crumbling port beyond, and smiled to himself; it was good to be raiding again.




The Privateers were originally the regional military of the Democratic Republic, though we do not associate with TDR any longer. Under the command of Azadliq, we are a raider-oriented organization. In the last several months we've participated in numerous, consistent tagging raids and many of our members show great promise.We will welcome anyone into our ranks as long as they are participatory, positive, respectful, and trustworthy. We look forward to participating in R/D for many years to come.

22 December Major

In this major the Privateers plundered:
Medieval Kingdoms
The Unified Nations of Distinction
The League of Liberated Federations
Anglova
Stargate

This was thanks to:
Captain: Azadliq
Lieutenant: Crystalsummer
Lieutenant: The Chariot
Petty Officer: United Trev

We'd also like to thank The Midnight Order, with whom we've worked very closely and with whom we hope to continue to share a bountiful relationship.

True. In the future we're going to do more digging so we can find a better target, or at least one with less caring friends. For now, what's done is done.

We're a regional military that is fairly active. I decided that our activity had grown consistent enough that a thread might be useful so we could more easily take credit for our work and interact with the larger gameplay community.

Christmas Major

You shoulda watched out,
You better not cry,
You better not pout,
I'm telling you why--
TMO is coming to town!

We're making our lists,
Checking them twice,
Gonna find out who's naughty or nice--
TDR is coming to town!

We know when you are sleeping,
We'll be here when you awake,
We know if you've been bad or good,
So be good for goodness sake!

Oh, you shoulda watched out,
You better not cry,
You better not pout,
I'm telling you why--
More raiders are coming to town!


Merry Christmas, you filthy animals


This update we raided:

The men split the loot below deck as the Privateers sailed away from the Mid Pacific. As the light of the burning islands blazed across the sky, Azadliq turned his head to the south. Someday, he thought. Someday.

Boring Organizational Changes

Postby Azadliq » Tue Jan 14, 2020 2:33 am

I'm happy to announce-- finally-- the formation of our new host region, The Privateers! We'll be using this region to build embassies with our tags, send out recruitment telegrams, & so forth. While we are a regional military, we see the need to recruit separately from TDR since we're trying to attract a specific kind of player: those interested in R/D. We also didn't want to clutter TDR's embassy list with a bunch of tagged regions, instead preserving it for meaningful embassies.

Finally, we've decided to release a public discord invite to the Privateer's server, rather than using the one for TDR's server, for the same reasons listed above. From now on, our WFEs will use the new discord invitation.

17 January 2020 Minor

Well, we finally got some new blood! Unfortunately, they must live on the other side of the planet, because they prefer raiding on minor updates. Whatever the case, we'll do what we can to accommodate them.

Whelp, we took the last week off, but we're back to plundering!

We're also going to be enforcing a policy that any privateer who misses 3 raids or more, without providing a superior with a reasonable reason why, is going to be ejected from the organization. We hope that this policy will generate more consistent activity.

1 February 2020 Major


Tonight was a great night. See, the Privateers have an open invitation to anyone in good standing in the gameplay community-- if you want to raid, you can join us. And as you can see from our previous WFEs, folk from 3 Guys and TMO have taken us up on that offer a lot. Tonight is the first time, however, that we've been asked by another group to join them. Thanks for the invitation 3 Guys, and hopefully we can do this again sometime.

I'll let 3 Guys provide a list of the regions raided. Or not. It's their op, I'll leave that to them. Have a great night y'all!

20 minutes. It takes 20 minutes of clicking and scrolling, over and over again, to close 140 embassies. I mean, holy hell, I almost gave up out of sheer laziness. Good lord. Anyway, The Privateers and Three Guys just wanted to say that the Kansas City Chiefs played great on



I don't actually like football-- I get bored watching it-- but it's a great excuse to get the family together and throw a party. Anyway, have a great night, and we'll see you all again soon!

Official Announcement


The Privateers were originally formed to serve as the Democratic Republic's regional military. Due to civil disagreements and power struggles, this arrangement has been discontinued. The Privateers no longer serve any region, but instead roam NationStates' seas alone, seeking glory and plunder for their own sake. Our organization and its actions should no longer be considered reflective of TDR, and vice versa.

We look forward to raiding some more in the near future.
