The Royal Navy
The Royal Navy is the official naval force and only law enforcement allowed on the server. Civilians may report unlawful actions to the Navy in order to obtain justice. Citizens are also allowed to join, go through basic training, and even be promoted through the ranks!
Location: Griffin Point in B3; South West Corner of the Royal Waters.
This island is owned and operated by the Royal Navy.
Cannot be settled on by non-Navy personnel.
Cannot be attacked during the first 10 days of each new map.
Military Focus: The Royal Navy does not perform any major resource gathering by their own hands. Resources must be traded for or obtained through taxing. Because of this, the Navy will purchase all necessary materials from civilian traders at a set standard price.
Standard Issue Uniforms and Weapons: All recruits receive a uniform. After completing basic training, all navy men will receive standard issue firearms. The Royal Navy will provide all food, supplies, ammunition and repairs needed while performing naval duties. Anything outside of that will be the burden of the player.
Naval Command Terms: Players may hold a high command position in the Royal Navy for the duration of two chapters (Chapters are typically 8-12 weeks). If a story requires additional time, it can be requested. Additionally, you cannot hold back to back high command positions on two different characters unless you have admin permission.
Privateers: In order to become an official privateer and receive permission to commit acts that would otherwise be seen as piracy, you must register with the Navy and receive a Letter of Marque. This ‘license’ must be kept on your ship/person whenever sailing with red.

b.) Storage: Following transport, purchase receipts must be kept on record at the company base where the resource is being stored.
Endangered Tames: Shieldhorn, Razortooth, Leatherwing, Yeti, Elementals, Cyclops and Giant Crabs are considered endangered and are protected from poaching by law. Poaching and possession of these creatures is considered illegal.
