Flags-Tyr's Own.jpg

Tyr's Own, the crew, was formed at the launch of the Midnight Ocean. It consisted of beta players from the Azure Ocean, primarily members of Green's Wolves and The Revenge. Both crews had been part of the Braindead Buccaneers flag, who controlled Azure's version of Jorvik Island. In 2003, during the Midnight shoppe auctions, Green's Wolves and The Revenge became separate entities, splitting on good terms but different goals. The Wolves joined Looterati, while The Revenge joined Nyx's Scions.

The two crews later rejoined, this time as Tyr's Own, the flag, along with the Fifth Fist of th'Misfits, The Phoenix Warriors, and the Serial Pillagers in December 2003. They gathered with the intention of colonizing Jorvik Island when islands became open for blockades.

To test the new blockade feature, the Ringers first opened Byrne Island and Emperor Island for colonization. When, after a few hours, no one had attacked Byrne yet, the senior members of Tyr's Own dropped a war chest on the island. Tyr's Own's primary goal was to get experience with blockades, not a change of focus from their Jorvik goal. The flag took the island at Byrne I, easily winning seven out of eight rounds. During colonization, Tyr's Own put up a number of buildings with Talking Heads-themed names.

Jorvik blockades

Unfortunately, what started as a sideshow to experiment with the new blockades wound up taking a good deal of Tyr's time, and they were not in a position to contend for Jorvik, their original goal. When it opened, Looterati took the island.

Tyr's Own later mounted two attacks on Jorvik Island (Jorvik II and Jorvik III), but were shut out both times. Looterati's defense was aided by several factors. Looterati had allied with other medium and large flags; these flags showed up in force to defend. Additionally, some players believed this to be an internal matter between Looterati and its former member, Greenwolf. Still others believed that it was too early for a single flag to govern more than one island. Finally, some felt uncomfortable about taking an island away from a flag when new islands were scheduled to open. The attempt at Jorvik III was further hampered by a counter-blockade of Byrne by DOOFIS (Byrne II).

In March 2006, with the re-opening of Jorvik to blockades, Tyr's Own made one more attempt at Jorvik. Faced with the opposition of Hades' flag Death's Banner, and also worthy opponents the Broadsiders, Tyr's Own was successful at long last, spurring the return of some of the old guard to the game.

Turtle blockade

A month after Jorvik III, Tyr's Own created the alt flag Turtle's Own to take Turtle Island from Death's Banner. The flag defeated Hades' forces in a seven-round shutout at Turtle III. Tyr's Own installed their longtime friend Janthina as the island's governor.

Cranberry blockades

Two weeks later, Tyr's Own blockaded Cranberry Island in the Ruby Archipelago when it opened for colonization. They and the other contender, Trans-Atlantic Empire, faced a strong defense from Looterati and its close ally Silver Dawn. Both contenders won a single round, and the defenders won the other five, leaving the island uncolonized.

A week after Cranberry I, Trans-Atlantic Empire tried again to take the island. Silver Dawn actively supported them, and Looterati offered informal assistance. Shortly before round 4, Tyr's Own dropped a war chest and became a contender, although they failed to win a single round.

Lilliputian alliance

In December 2005, Tyr's Own formed the Lilliputian Alliance with Seraph's Nightmare, Black Sheep Brigade, and Black Rose to simultaneously blockade four islands held by the flag Avalon. Although no islands were taken by the Lilliputian Alliance, the Alliance achieved its goal of hosting a fun and exciting event for the ocean.

Public statement

Our Mission: To have fun.

Management: Our royals are appointed as punishment for their misdeeds and are charged with gathering the viewpoints of our flagmates and bringing forward solutions. We have many monarchs and it is the task of the Official Monarch to carry out flag decisions. All of the royals may act as representatives of the flag. Each crew is entitled to appoint one titled member for each ten active, non-alt crewbies. Titled members are required to flounce around Byrne in gowns and swashies but have no other formal role.

Membership: Each one of us is responsible for recruiting fine new flaggies. New crews may apply to join the flag by posting a neat, informative application in the Application Bin. Crew applications will be considered by consensus; new crews should demonstrate strength in numbers or abilities and a good fit with the individuality of Tyr's Own. The Official Monarch will advise the applicants of the status.

Meditation: All issues for discussion will be bandied about on the forums for three days, with a poll where appropriate, and the royals determining what the rough consensus for action is. The time period may be extended or shortened where necessary.

Machinations: If any of our flaggies wants to do something with flag help, propose it on the forums, organize it, ask for the help needed, and do it. This flag is a trampoline to bounce our flaggies to heights they can't reach alone. Your choice, live in the pocketses of the flaggies or go hermiting with the Old Man on Oyster.

Money: Make it, gamble it, spend it, save it, polish it, roll around nekkid in it. It's all yours.

Moulin Rouge: This flag is about truth, beauty, freedom; but above all things, this flag is about love.
