On the Rocks was named by Nowie and created by Shodan on August 19, 2005. On the Rocks first hit Imperial on December 21, 2005. Shodan had been working to push the rating up to Imperial for a month, and viewed it as an early Christmas present. Upon his retirement on April 16th, 2006, Shodan left the crew in the care of Jaenelle, Tripleswitch, and Zava as an Oligarchy. Roughly two months later, Zava was promoted to Captain of the crew. At that point, the group of crewmates known previously on the crew forums as OTR's Core were promoted to Senior Officers.

As of April 25 2006, On the Rocks members owned six of the nineteen familiars on Sage. (Roughly one third - Hypnotoad owns one, Kerix owns two, Silverdawg owns two, and Zava owns one.) By the end of 2006, the crew's familiar count was up to 17.

On the Rocks became the founding crew of the Armed Cocktail Party on May 20th of 2006. Later, On the Rocks decided to join Passive Aggression. After Passive Aggression disbanded, On the Rocks became flagless for a number of months, before joining No Parking and later joining the flag Twisted Parallax in July 2011. In July 2012, On the Rocks moved to the flag Blue Ice.

Recruitment Policy

OTR has a distinguished history as one of the strongest and oldest crews on Sage. We did not achieve this through simple luck; OTR is comprised of some of the finest pirates upon the seas. To that end, we're a bit particular about those people who we welcome into our ranks. If you are:

  • Completely new to Puzzle Pirates;
  • Not joining with your main pirate (e.g., you're playing your alt);
  • Looking for an immediate position as a high-ranking officer;
  • Unable to grasp the difference between numbers and letters;
  • Unable to communicate in a coherent manner,

then OTR is not the crew for you.
