Lunar Rogues was a small crew flying the flag of Broadsiders on the Midnight Ocean.


This crew has a long and convoluted history. The first time Beartooth created a crew called Lunar Rogues on the Midnight Ocean was in early January, 2006. That was an oligarchic crew that lasted through until the end of March, when complicated internal political issues caused it to collapse. By the beginning of May, Beartooth had become so fed up with his crew that he left, and became, and remained, a fleet officer in Otherwhen for nearly five months, until he decided that he was ready to run his own crew again, on September 9. And so, the third iteration of Lunar Rogues came into being. It only took a couple of weeks for the crew to gain rumored fame and be invited back into the flag Water Sleeps.

On February 24, 2007, the Lunar Rogues leadership decided it was time to move on from Water Sleeps. They formed the temporary flag of Terran Empire while they waited for Broadsiders' political processes to allow them to be invited to join. Two days later, they were invited to join Broadsiders.

The End (Take 2)

For a while before deciding he was tired of leadership roles entirely, Beartooth began to realize how inactive the crew was becoming. By the time the merger was enacted, the crew was down to seven members, including two alts of the other five (down from nearly fifteen distinct members). None of the senior officers were very active anymore, either. It was agreed that merger was the only solution - and Helania of Menacing Storm was the first to agree to the merger. The crew has vague plans of making Lunar Rogues for a third time at some point in the future when the leaders have more time to devote to it.

Other Things

Sinking PvP's

Late on the night of Saturday, December 30, 2006, Lunar Rogues temporarily left Water Sleeps and made its own flag, called Water Sleeps War Flag. The purpose of this was to engage in sinking PvPs with Kbhunter without putting the entire flag at undue risk of having their ships sunk. In the first such PvP, the sloop Beartooth was navving was sunk.

Crew Colors

The crew colors are currently green and black. The crew has a renamed sloop called the Rogue Lunero which is painted black/green, and a War Brig called the Half Stickleback also painted black/green.
