Tea and Strumpets were brewed in the early days of 2007, when the nights were cold and lonely and no other flag could ensure the founding crews happiness. They are a very fair flag, that likes to chat a lot, and often has drinking parties and drunk members on flag officer chat.
In mid-April Panteraa, Greenfish and Sianuk began looking for new royals. After Greenfish left the flag, there was one more spot left, the winners of the royal competition were posted as royals.
However, they did not find what they wanted, so still have potential royal spots up for grabs.
In June (and going into July) 2007 Tea and Strumpets went to war with The Government because they sent a war declaration to blockade Kasidim. In the war, the score was 6 Government ships sunk, including a war frigate, and no Strumpet ships sunk. After the war was over, Tea and Strumpets almost immediately send another declaration due to Dave and Joe's comments on the forums, which to date, hasn't been returned.
In February 2008 Tea & Strumpets was approached by the flag League of Light to take Scrimshaw Island - though it was just a 2 day notice the flag eagerly agreed. The catch: Good Grief also wanted Scrimshaw. Politics set aside, the three flags sat down and discussed how to make it a fun blockade for all involved. LOL basically sat it out, providing no jobbers and only one staffed WB for rounds 2, 3 and 4. T&S lost but it was their first large blockade, and on short notice. See Scrimshaw IV.
Also in February 2008, Good Grief held an event which combined Sword-fighting, Racing, and a sinking sloop blockade to win Ventress Island, in which we entered two teams. Team Nepenthe (racer) & Podling (bnav) sank, but team Cailoo (racer) and Hairyhaggis (bnav) went on to win. Ventress Island was transferred March 3, 2008.
Ventress was successfully defended twice, Ventress XII against Crystal Alliance and Ventress XIII against Chuck Norris. However, the island was lost in a 5 rounds blockade to Imperial Rednecks, on June 21, 2008, Ventress XIV.
The late months of 2008 found Tea & Strumpets in an attacking mood. They easily stomped Barnabas at Ashkelon XI, only a week after Chuck Norris left the island to the Brigand King. Then, in early November, they routed Dirty Deeds at Scrimshaw XIV.
Shiny happy people holding hands!
