Red Herring is a crew on the Midnight Ocean.

Public statement

Life's pretty good, and why wouldn't it be? We're pirates, after all.

Extended public statement

This Crew is a group of mates with the ultimate goal of making as much PoE as we possibly can.

To that end, we expect jobbers and crew alike to obey the orders of the commanding officer(s). If a gunner, lookout, or navigator is needed, we will ask; if we don't ask, we have all of the bases covered. Please take the station to which you are directed. If for some reason you feel you would be put to better use elsewhere, feel free to suggest it -- just realize your suggestion may not be taken.

If you laze, refuse to follow directions, or are rude to others you will be removed from the vessel after being warned.

The Red Herring's vessels are ported at the discretion of the commanding officers aboard that boat. You will be paid if you leave the vessel before porting. It is unfair to ask the officers to port a vessel when there are others aboard who are there to work and earn PoE. It is also unfair to all aboard the vessel if you leave during battle. We may receive a bot replacement, but they are nowhere near the calibre of a human-played pirate. Please keep this in mind as you will be docked pay if you leave after battle navigation has begun.

No person shall disobey an order coming from either the Commanding officer of the boat, or Senior Officer's aboard that boat.

Anyone who wishes to join the crew should contact the Commanding or Senior Officers on the boat. Promotions above Pirate will be considered by the Captain and Senior officers, based on merit.

Above all, remember that we are here to have fun while making as much PoE as we can! We may win, we rarely lose, but we always share laughs. Enjoy your pillaging with us, but remember PoE makes the world go round!


In December 2007, Red Herring decided to part ways with Elysian Fields to explore other opportunities in the game. The crew joined up with Barnacle for Brains to create Pandemonium.

In June 2008, Barnacle for Brains chose to leave Pandemonium, in hopes of finding a larger flag. Red Herring also chose to leave Pandemonium at this time and decided to join up with their hearties in Riot. The mates in Riot welcomed them with open arms and this is currently where Red Herring remains housed.
