Ironside is a crew that sails the Cerulean Ocean. It was founded on December 28, 2005 and currently flies the Anchor Management flag.
Ironside was formed by Metallus and Kelz just after Christmas, 2005, while under the flag Don't Panic. Shortly after the crew formed, they went independent and dedicated themselves to pillaging entirely. During this time they actively grew through recruiting and many of the core mates left in Ironside were trained and became Officers during this time. Looking for a new flag to call home, and having a bit of a rebellious streak in them, the crew joined the flag Notorious Fandango at the end of May 2006. Ironside stayed in Fandago and helped them with the greevil plans until the flag disbanded in November of 2006. After the flag disbanded, Ironside merged with another Fandango crew, Greevil Academy. Finding itself without a flag to call home Ironside went independent and formed their own, one crew flag called Irony. Due to the loss of its two founding members to real life responsibilities, Irony was short lived. Ironside shut down it's recruitment entirely and began a quest to find a new flag to call home. After spending time with many great Midnight flags, Ironside became a member of the flag Riot between June and July of 2007. After a long and successful stay in Riot, a now small group of Ironsiders decided it was time to find a new home that would allow their most active mates a chance to pillage and participate in events while allowing their less active mates to log on and puzzle with others whenever their schedule allowed. After investigating their options the crew decided to make their home in the flag Anchor Management at the end of May 2008.
Ironside has a unique take on sharing leadership responsibilities, rotating the captain's hat between its senior officers, giving a wider number of its members a chance try their hand at crew management. Ironside's view is that all S.O.s are crew leaders and the Captain is just another S.O. with a fancy hat. All active S.O.s are to be consulted in major crew decisions and major decisions will not be made solely at the Captain's discretion.
Ironside's current captain is Sancha. Former captains include Kelz, Deadmoose, Joepirate, Metallus, Mith and Arrlene.
