A Falchion is a medieval one-handed blade combining the weight and power of an axe with the versatility of a sword.
If'n yer looking for a weighty and powerful flag, ye've found us! We are a major player in ocean politics, island owning and blockading.
If'n yer looking for something a bit different, we also have Pillagers who sail the length and breadth of the ocean searching for Brigands and Barbarians laden with booty, Traders keeping an eye out for bargains, and Merchants selling everything from yer first sword to that black and gold outfit ye've been keeping yer eye on!
Even if yer fairly new to the game and aren't quite sure what you're looking for, never fear! We have a Young Falchioners crew full of people willing to show you the ropes until ye find yer feet.

What The Falchion was created by The Burning Legion after departing from The Art of War. Soon after its creation, Gentleman was voted in as the first monarch of the flag, and Blackdragon as first royalty. When Gentleman announced his resignation, Epsaltos joined the Royalty ranks.
It was at this point a vote was made not to install a new monarch, which stood as a rule for many years.
By the end of 2008, the majority of main names in What The Falchion had moved on or retired. The flag was retired by Psychox and Mitja who were the last remaining royals at the time, Tigerleaf Mountain was given away and flag assets shared out.
In early 2009 ZactheDragon returned to the flag following a disagreement in principles while at Dark Asylum and blockaded Fintan in an attempt to prevent another shoppe being built. The blockade proved unsuccessful but Zacthedragon remained in What The Falchion and retired from YPP a few months later.
In February 2012 ZactheDragon returned to the game and with his return What The Falchion is now active again across the ocean. What the Falchion is once again open to new crews and pirates.

What The Falchion attacked Crimson Horizons to take control of Tigerleaf Mountain, Anbin Alayam also attacked. Round one was closely contested with Anbin getting ahead for a safe cluster that they were skilled to get first and hold. Pay went to 2200 a segment and jobbing numbers favoured against What The Falchion so round 2 the flag took in only brigs and had 5/6 on the board, because of it being a three way the two other flags were cancelling each other out for the most part so WTF was leading the round, but once Anbin managed to take control of a large cluster from Crimson Horizons they took the lead, What The Falchion backed out for round three and Anbin went on to win the island.
