Who are we?
The Francis Brigade was a small band of saboteurs and bandits in early January. Numbers have grown within the past few months. Founded on December 21st, 2009 , The Francis Brigade was just another guild. But it grew seizing land like the Brigade Triangle and Camp Baboon Forest. We are always in need of new soldiers who are willing to join and risk their lives for the innocent people of the Caribbean who's rights are being tested by the E.I.T.C. And other forces who stand in our way. We have never lost a war except for one battle. We are also noobs
A new mission!
Ravens Cove, a place destroyed by Jolly Roger and the EITC over weapons, lies in shambles. The Brigade will take the island and offer aid to the island and the people to keep them safe and to turn it into a brigade armory and trading post, for anyone who seeks shelter may find them self safe with the brigade! we need more armour in ravens cove so they cant invade
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: are you a eitc or navy guild?
A: No we are a organized militia to drive back the forces of the navy, eitc and Jolly Roger.
Question: how can i earn ranks?
Answer: Ranks are earned when the brigadier general of commanding officers feel you deserve a rank up. A good way to get ranks is to show up for training listen to orders get a uniform and show respect to everyone.
Question: what if i don't have enough money for uniforms or i need money?
Answer: Just ask the brigadier general. He will give out gold to members in need for free! the brigadier general has so much gold to give away to the members which, makes this another good reason to join!

Febuary 2nd 2011:
The Barracks Sacked!Today, Turncoat soldiers from France, some EITC mercenaries and a couple of scallywags attacked the Barracks on Driftwood Isle. After warding off a small amount of Brigade Ships, they continued undaunted towards the Capital. A few Brigade Soldiers put up a Token resistance, but were overwhelmed. The EITC and French Turncoats then procceded to Ramsack the Barracks.
One eyewitness describes the Scene. The Air was filled with smoke, and the entire Barracks were up in Flames. Several things were burned or stolen. Our Map was shot up, Crates of supplies damaged, and a Gilded cutlass fell into the hands of the EITC.
Could this be the beginning of the End for the Brigade? will there be a counterattack? Only Time will tell.

It has come to my attention that this guild is failing ever since Francis decided to join back after his random attack. Nobody really knows why he did attack. Maybe he drank too much that night. Anyway, here are some ideas. YOU NEED TO RECRUIT, Thats the first thing that you need to do. Everybody knows your guild, so all you have to do is go to abassa tortuga and say, join now suckers. The result:50+ people just joined your guild. Next, You need to entertain them. They love to train, so keep doing training every once in a while. You could go on cruises around the ocean, you could bring back classes and squads. You could let the higher ranks have a bigger responsebility. Eventually if you do this, your guild will be better and bigger than ever. ~ Jeffrey Blasthawk, former Sgt. Major
Viceroyalty Co. and Francis Brigade began joint training exercises. The GM of Viceroyalty Co. Robert Mc Roberts, is a good friend of Francis Bluehawk. His Guilds Military force was Strong, but could become Stronger with working with the Brigade. Fighting under the same banner and with the same Uniforms, about 10 members from Francis Brigade and Viceroyalty Co. stopped an entire invasion on Padres Exuma. The Brigade then helped defend Viceroyalty Co.'s Home server of Vachira from a undead invasion of Port Royal. Viceroyalty Co. has adopted the same ranks (and added a new rank for thier leaders which is below francis bur above colonel) and uniforms and should be treated like equal soldiers.
~Robert McRoberts, GM of Viceroyalty Co- Lieutenant Colonel
Not necessarily a completely recent development (It happened a few days ago, I think the 21st but I never put it up): A peace treaty for the month of December between the combined forces of United Pirate Army and allies (signed by Jack Swordmenace), Francis Brigade (Signed by Francis Bluehawk), Remys Renegades (Signed by Remy), Bandidos Are Back (Signed by Nate Raidhawk), and Co. Republic (Signed by Cad Bane), with the forces of United Co.Empire (or whatever it is now, signed by Captain Leon). Reminder: Until further notice no conflict will be tolerated with the EITC: Allow us to have a festive season and them as well, rest and be jolly! Until further notice, this treaty expires January 1st, 1722 (2011). For confirmation that this applies to you, ask Francis.

'December 16th, '2010 Brigade news letter from Francis
I know there was some confusion on new uniforms so for the time being until this is all resolved plunder as much as you cna get alot of gold. I would really like to incorporate the bi-corn hat into our uniforms but it looks really bad with the grey. Our old uniforms on the other hand ( blue tourist coats ) did go very well with the hat. If you have any suggestions about new uniforms idea or design talk to me. I ofcourse would have to approve of the new uniforms idea but for starters; Make the uniform something everyone can buy. When i mean buy everyone can BUY i mean nothing like barbossa coats or callecutters hats because not everyone can buy that same goes for emblished vest in colors for it is no longer in stores. The chances for it to be be approved will be better if you either have Admirals Hat, Bi-corner, or Tri-corner in the suggestion.
Thanks! and remember, make a stand for freedom.
I think we should do the Tourist long coat, the Bi-corner hat, Purple Pants, and the same white shirt we always use. That way, in April, when the new awesome admiral set comes, we can change the coat to that, and it wont be to different or confusing, for it is similar to the Tourist coat. Tell me what you think!~Greencloths, Sergeant, and head of Spy Control./
I think one of the uniforms should be the new purple admiral outfit.

We have successfully defeated a new boss, Foulberto Smasho! He was a tough, lvl 50 ( MASTERED ) Boss! The Brigade discovered a small trap door while exploring Raven's Cove ( Similar to Rumrunners Isle ) and went inside. The sign read ' Cave of Lost Souls '. At the end of the cave, there he was! A Firing line was made of all soldiers there, other than Greencloths, who didn't like this plan. Many died, and the Brigade retreated. An argument begun. Greencloths wanted to have the lower levels heal the others and the higher lvls attack, yet Jeffrey Blasthawk just wanted to use their best weapons and attack full blast. They started using BOTH plans, which lead to disaster. Thankfully, more soldiers arrived and started healing, and the plans combined and the Brigade defeated the boss! But at great cost. Also, new outfits have arrived for the Brigade.
December 2nd, 2010 : Spy reported and Battle against mysterious enemies.
Spy spotted in the Brigade! David Cabin breaker is a spy with the Legendary Co, Elites. If you see him join, boot him.
Also, a huge battle broke out. Heres the story :
The Brigade was marching through Padres Del Fuego and spotted non other than Captain Leon! They fought a little, untill Francis declared a ship battle. Leon sailed away. The Brigade thought he was going to do their battle, so they launched their fleet from the French Island. Tired of waiting, the Brigade ported, due to the fact that Leon had not luanched his fleet, when suddenly, a spanish fleet launched. The Brigade quickly launched again, and it was a fair battle.
Sergeant, head Spy Control, and News Reporter, Greencloths, said : "It was crazy! Ships crashed into rocks, while others were blown to bits! Plus some of Leons thugs boarded some of the Brigades ships and even took over a War Sloop. Even Captain Jim Logan was thrown into the battle. I took these photos. I hope they shed some light." The Brigade eventually won, but it was a hard battle. Plus, the enemy wanst Leon, for Leon boarded and took over a Brigade warship. It is thought that Leon hired some bountyhunters to launch the fleet, so Leon could take over some Brigade battleships.
November 7th, 2010 News Letter to the Brigade
Hello soldiers, as you know everything is going as planned. Our dear friends in the cold crusaders have our backs, which makes us not able to stop. Their is no need to worry about the EITC anymore. they are still alive.... In history books that is. Also it has come to my attention that some Brigades wanted uniforms changed? Well that is possible, but we would have to have a vote for it; also it might take a while to have everyone with new uniforms. Neverless it might happen or not but the chance of it happening is low. If we did happen to get different uniforms i have a nice one in mind which were the starting uniforms of the brigade. Not many have seen these. They were when the brigade was first founded! Also please dont try to start wars with random people, it is encouraged to just ignore them and they will leave us alone. A reminder to all that the 1 year celebration of francis brigade is coming up soon! we hope to get 200 members by then! So invite your friends and crew members! Remember lvl 15 and up!
November 1st 2010=====
Today the brigade yet again won another battle, it was backed up with allies and the battle was smooth and easy. Dog O' Hawk and his soldiers joined the frey while several brigade gun boats blasted away the enemy vessels. After the Brigade jumped over to port royal and drove jolly roger and his army of bone heads back. After, victory was celebrated with a hot piping cup of earl grey tea. The Brigades numbers grow every day and soon it will hit the 200 mark! It has 165 members at the moment, most of them unlimited high level soldiers! Also our old enemy, Slappy, has been killed.
Ah, good to see the greatest navy of the 5th Brethren Court showing its prowess against our adversaries! You've made us all proud mates! And yes, Slappy fell at my blade.
~ Jack Swordmenace, King of the 5th Brethren Court

October 20th 2010The guild battled a Treasure Fleet. They successfully defeated two prized Tryrants.. but the Brigades Flagship was destroyed. Only about 5 men and 1 woman survived the destruction of the flagship of delta fleet. Lucky for the guild, Francis Bluhawk was one of the survivors. One chest also survived the battle. It was a chest looted from an enemy tyrant. It contained an Engraved Sabre, and an Engraved Cutlass. Because of that, they named the chest ' Engraved Chest '. They then painted the word Engraved on the chest and it is now kept in the Francis Brigade Mueseum on Tortuga. The blades were given to Francis Bluehawk, ( The sabre ) and Greencloths. ( The Cutlass. )

Today the Brigade fell to jollys curse of the muertos moon, turning them into undead zombies. Everyone was defeated except Francis Bluehawk (Me!) A tip to stay alive is to stick together, dont use broad swords and if you are being attacked use a swift foot potion and head far out in the water! Wensesday August 11th 2010
Today the brigade did a great job training and alot of new recruits were enlisted. No battles took places but a fleet was formed and fleet training took place.

Tuesday August 10th 2010
As of Tuesday August 2010 it was issued the brigades uniforms and classes were changing. I have made up my mind and it will stay the way it has always been. Only if people listen to me. You must make a change and listen this is not just a guild it is a life style. If you listen to me i will respect you and your fellow soldiers will. And that is also how promotions are earned. Remember this guild is famous and you will be getting fame, so show respect. Not listing to orders will make you look stupid and just might get you kicked so if you are AFK tell people please. U.A.!
