Who are we?
Some would say we're a guild, but we are much more. We are a community of pirates, who take pride in their art - their art, whether it be sailing, cannoning, repairing, and even sinking, at that matter.
The guild leaders are CH-5 and CH-6 ranked members of the guild. So the Admiral (guildmaster) and the Captains (officers). They are all select people who can be trusted with the leading of this guild.
|About:||Founder and guildmaster Jeremiah Stormwash, who prefers everybody to call him Jerry, is a master gunner, and the owner of a rare and much treasured Revenant Cannon Ram, granting him an indefinite amount of boosted Fury. He prefers to be a gunner, not a captain. In his freetime, he can be found in pubs around the caribbean. His favorite is the La Bodeguita.|
|Name:||Nicholas De Salisbury|
|About:||Nich, co-founder, and co-guildmaster is a very role-playing sort of person. He usually hangs around other role-play figures, but when he's aboard a ship, he's definitely to be found next to a cannon. Nick is a very old friend of Jerry, and has been playing for a very long time. His favorite drink is Russian imported vodka.|
All promotions in ranks will be decided by the Admiral and his Captains. Promotions are privileges and can be taken away at any time.

By participating in the 'Sinkers United' guild, you agree to follow these rules, or risk your own disbanding from the guild by an officer or the guildmaster.
|Rule:||Disobediance toleration limit:|
|Be respectful and kind to your fellow players.||2, 3rd is a Court Martial.|
|Behave maturely, and set a good example for others.||2, 3rd is a Court Martial.|
|Do not defimate this guild.||Court Martial or disbandment.|

Court Martial a disciplinary hearing held when (a) member(s) of the guild overstep the disobedience limit that is set forth by the rules.
In a Court Martial hearing where the defentant(s) is/are between ranks CH-1 (junior), CH-3, the Admiral and the Captains act as the jury over the hearing, and will eventually decide to either disband the defendant(s), and/or to clear the defendant(s) of charges.
In a Court Martial hearing where the defendat(s) is/are rank CH-4, the Admiral and the Captains act as the jury over the hearing, and will eventually decide to either disband the defendant(s), demote the defendant(s) to a lower rank (if this option is decided upon, the Admiral and the Captains will also decide on what rank to demote the defendant(s) to), and/or to clear the defendant(s) of charges.
In a Court Martial hearing where the defendant(s) is/are rank CH-5, the Admiral acts as the jury over the hearing, and will eventually decide to either disband the defendant(s), demote the defendant(s) to a lower rank (if this option is decided upon, the Admiral will also decide on what rank to demote the defendant(s) to), and/or to clear the defendant(s) of charges.
In a Court Martial hearing where the defendant(s) is/are rank CH-6, the entire guild acts as the jury over the hearing, and will eventually decide to either disband the defendant(s) (if this option is decided upon, the guild will also vote on one of the Captains to be the new Admiral), demote the defendant(s) by one rank (if this option is decided upon, the guild will also vote on one of the Captains to be the new Admiral), and/or to clear the defendant(s) of charges.
If the defendant(s) is/are cleared of charge(s), the charge(s) that of which the defendant(s) are cleared of shall be as if the defendant(s) have been found innocent of that/those charge(s).
In a disbandment, the jury, or the guild as a whole (in the case of the rank CH-6 hearing) shall decide whether the disbandment is at a felony level or not. Felony level disbanded persons have more dificulties when attempting to join the guild again in thh future.
Wearing the guild uniform is an option, not a necessity. Though, wearing the guild uniform is appreciated when participating in guild events (but still not necessary). The uniform was designed from crude clothing items, so that even the basic access members of the guild could use it.
