MadRealms.net hosts several Minecraft servers, the most popular being The Skylands Pirates - a airship server using a modified Movecraft plugin at it's core and set in the floating skylands above the Void. The Black Guard are a group of Pirate lords, destined for riches, and known for ruthlessness. We serve the winds and pray to the Void that consumes all. We have founded the town of Raven's Cove far from the reach of the regular Port Dawn land lubbers and seek deckhands, skallywags, and swabbers to hoist the sails and grease the cogs of our dreaded airships.
Take what you can, give nothing back. This is the foundation of the pirate code and our rule. The town of Raven's Cove is founded by Black Guard Pirate Lords, these lords of 3 claim personal homes and industry which produce and fund the various piratical behavior we are known for.
As a Lord, you are required to upkeep an airship, recruit crew of non faction members, and raid all who do not submit to your demands.
Lords may be accompanied by Bosuns who are within faction, allowing use of faction facilities, but who have not yet proven themselves worthy of commanding and funding a ship of their own.
Finally, our faction consists of Shrimp, good for recruiting to block arrows and better to eat. Shrimp are the boatless, hopeless scum scraped from the Port Dawn docks and beaten into service for the glory and riches of the High Winds. Most shrimp parish to the Void Serpent, but a very select few prove themselves as worthy to join the ranks of the Black Guard.

As stated above:
Pirate Lord - the rulers of the skies and organizers of raids and ship crew.
Bosun - pirate in training, not ready or able for their own ship, but a steady hand to support the cause of any Pirate Lord
Shrimp - never truly in faction, these are the recruits for the duration of any given pirate tour. At the close of the journey, spoils are divided and the shrimp are left to spend their plunder on rum, and other revelry
