Thieves of Mercy is a crew currently sailing the Emerald Ocean pillaging random ships and killing sea monsters. It was originally founded on the Sage Ocean and is currently a member of the flag League of Light.
The crew Thieves of Mercy in short known as ToM was founded on September 18th, 2008 by a lovely pirate named Jumpinjobean. She named this crew after the only named pirates in Shakespeare (Hamlet). The first member of the crew who rose to be senior officer was Pinoi and shortly after that Jumpinjobean's faithful companions, Scditwe and Madmads also rose to senior officer rank. Jumpinjobean, Pinoi, Scditwe and Madmads sailed the Sage Ocean in search of pirates of good faith and good experience to join the crew. They were all very pleased when Inceyn also walked the rose petal strewn path to senior officer rank. At some point Inceyn wandered into the crew and was tricked into a position of responsibility by the nefarious miscreants.
In autumn of 2009 tragedy struck the crew when they became infected with the madness known as Connell. A recent import from Malachite, Connell quickly rose through the ranks due to his irreverent humor and his utter lack of a social life. He stands as senior officer, holds the title of first mate and acts as scribe for the crew and flag. Very bravely Neeva, Ankheg, Bluewar, Danhusky, Finidi and Latinboy were also prepared to join the ranks of SO with Connell already there.
A little over a year-and-a-half later the crew has risen to 80 or so active members and over 100 dormant ones. Thieves of Mercy has achieved the much sought after and very esteemed illustrious fame.
Thieves of Mercy has captain changes when Jumpinjobean goes on vacation. In 2008 she let Madmads try on the big hat for about 2 weeks and in 2009 she handed it to Pinoi. By 2011 the captaincy had passed to Connell.
The Thieves of Mercy stands as the primary crew in Prestige.
Why would anyone want to be famous when infamy is so much more fun? -- Connell
Extended Public Statement
"Ere we were two days old at sea, a pirate of very warlike appointment gave us chase. Finding ourselves too slow of sail, we put on a compelling valor, and in the grapple I boarded them. On the instant they got clear of our ship, so I alone became their prisoner. They have dealt with me like thieves of mercy..." Hamlet
This is a friendly crew of pillaging pirates (*sigh* ok, ok, and some poker) who love blockading when we can.
If you would like to join the crew, come pillage with us and see if we like each other :)
LOL Connell's Rules:
First and foremost:
We keep new members as Cabin Person until they get at least one broad in a piracy skill ToM encourages Navy missions for Improvement of stats. We train officers when they are ready: Bnav capable and showing themselves capable of the responsibility.Those capable of being an officer at joining may be promoted immediately.

Last of all:
This should go without saying, but, unfortunately, it needs to be said.
Please do not beg for money. If you need money, work for it. The rest of us have.
