Extended public statement

Caught ya peaking at the New Best Old Thing!!!

FIRSTLY!!!!! P4P Flag chat can sometimes be rather Adult, if this offends you, please stay away!!

If you would like to discuss a Pay for Play crew invite , please feel free to contact any available royal who will put asside some time to talk with you regarding the matter. But please note, if you dont like the way we do things as a flag, you sure wont like to be under our flag.

P4P does not participate in the "Do Not PvP Allies" unwritten rule.

For five years Pay for Play has maintained a traditional set of values. These values have guided us to friendship, victory, and fun. The Pay for Play values are reflected by each member of the flag on three different levels: as a flagmate, a crewmate and an individual.

  1. Family: Respect all flagmates and treat them as family. We all united under the same banner, and we share the common goals of friendship, victory, and fun.
  2. Honor: Win and lose graciously. Recognize and take responsibility for your mistakes. Pay for Play strictly adheres to the rules of the game and does not take shortcuts. This is a diplomatic flag that does not trashtalk or use poor tactics.
  3. Pride: Go into battle with dignity, knowing that the flag and its values are behind you. Strive for your best, and be proud of our accomplishments. Be assured that in this flag your talents never go unnoticed.
  4. Leadership: Good leaders know when to follow orders and when to take control of a situation. They always work towards the betterment of the flag. As an ambassador to the flag, the crew, and yourself, it is important that you reflect these values, which have been passed down through generations of pirates.

P4P Grandious Flag Hall is located at Tears Of Neptune on Kirin Island.


First created by Poesink to house the crew Mercenaries, Pay for Play set itself apart by fighting many wars as a mercenary force, with a note in the public statement to contact Poesink for prices for sinking ships and/or fighting in blockades. To quote the statement, potential customers needed not worry as the players for hire "never lose". Many players from the flag Pirates Gone Wild joined at a later date, including the entire crew of Port Authority. Upon joining the flag as members of Mercenaries, Tristan and Cyndiepet became royalty, attempting to give Pay for Play a new image as a more easily approached flag. The mercenary aspect of the flag has been less obvious since the new leadership has taken charge.

Pay for Play is now in its third generation of leadership with Rudebwoi at the helm. Rudebwoi joined Pay for Play when he first started playing, and he was then captain of the crew Reality. Over time he was made Royal, and he was trained and guided by Cyndiepet and Tristan. They handed all of their knowledge over to him in preparation for their retirement from the political arena. In October 2007, Cyndiepet and Tristan retired from leadership and handed over the flags reign to Rudebwoi. He is aided by his royals and close friends, Deradactyl (long time royal) and Ryannakjk.

Pay for Play is finally active again after an extended political break from the ocean. During the period of hibernation, Deradactyl became the caretaker monarch, Ryannakjk moved on to her own flag to escape the daily political onslaught, and Rudebwoi spent some time aiding his close friends with the formation of a new flag, Tainted Purity, for the duration of Pay for Plays political hibernation. It was a chance for him to still participate with Puzzle Pirates whilst his real life situation changed.
