Syndicate? Why not stick with British Mercantile and Mercenary?
answer: Different strokes for different folks.
BMM is a "crafting guild", a society centred around
the economy, mastering production and trade, selling goods on the
auction house, and supplying Britain's Navy, all with the goal of
rackin' up doubloons. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that; a
strong economy is paramount to winning the map. In fact, I highly
recommend any new player join BMM to
master the economy and his own finances while having a positive
experience in enjoyable company.
With that being said, some wish to shift focus, for econ isn't the
end-game for them, but a means to the end-game: PvP and RvR.
We've tried to establish a PvP contingent in BMM to no avail--which is
good: to deviate from the group's core competency would only undermine
the group's fun and purpose.
With the lack of free-market, profit-minded PvP societies, Vandguard
Syndicate was created. The synergistic side-effect we anticipate is that our free-market PvP
society will provide the necessary consumption and demand for the free-market
