Favicon.png Crew Info

The Yo-Ho Yo-Yos was once a crew on the Midnight Ocean. However, this crew has since merged with several other crews to form the new crew, 'Looterati'.


The Yo-Ho Yo-Yos', or 'YHY', as they were also known, were one of the oldest crews on the Midnight Ocean. Originally from the Azure Ocean, the Midnight incarnation of 'YHY' was founded by Spinn on October 27, 2003. In its lifetime, 'YHY' had only three captains: Spinn, Jacquilynne, and Barrister. Each of them also served time as the Prime Minister (Monarch) of the flag, 'Looterati'.

'YHY' had a reputation for being one of the easiest crews to spot on the docks. This is because the crew's official colors were "garish." Although compliance is voluntary, crew members are encouraged to wear loud colors that clash violently.

After the colonization of Jorvik Island, Looterati built a weavery for the crew, named 'Citizen Skein', which has since been sold to another Looterati flagmate, Kmf.

During August 2008 The Yo-Ho Yo-Yos merged with three fellow Looterati crews, 'Far Too Jolly Rogers', the 'Day Traders' and 'Looterarmy', to become a new crew. This new crew was called 'Looterati', and still sailed under the flag of 'Looterati'.
