So you want to be a Pirate?

There are multiple Straw Hat Pirates guilds on North American Servers. We're the one on Bronzebeard-US.  We're connected to Shandris-US, as well.

General Application Requirements:

  • You must be willing to comply with both our charter and, if you want to raid, our raid rules.
  • Only apply if you can commit to joining.
  • You must not be applying to other guilds.

How to Apply:

  • Make an account for the forums with the name of your main character. If the name you want is already taken on Guild Launch, just use something close enough.
  • Use the Guild Launch Application. It will automatically make a post here when you submit it. You can get to it in the left sidebar under "Membership," or use this link.
  • It's a good idea to check back with your application often in case we ask for clarification.
  • These are the questions in the application. Answer ALL of the following questions:


  1. What is the name of your character? What level and class are you? Any notable alts?
  2. What is your real life age?
  3. What do you know about Straw Hat Pirates? (It's perfectly fine if you know nothing at all.)
  4. Do you have any references in our guild? If so, who and how do you know them?
  5. What guild(s) were you previous affiliated with and why are you no longer with it/them?
  6. Out of all possible guilds, why do you want to be a Straw Hat Pirate?
  7. What can you bring to Straw Hat Pirates that we would consider enlightening or unique?
  8. What do you expect Straw Hat Pirates to provide for you?
  9. Is there any more information you feel would qualify you for life as a pirate?
  10. Draw a picture of your toon and post it here. (MS Paint, scanned drawings, or a drawing website that lets you link your pictures are all fine. If you don't have anywhere to post pictures already, and are both free.)

Application Review Process:

  • Decisions on applications are posted in Happy Blue Text™, also known as cyan.
  • Only officers officially accept or reject your application.
  • If you are accepted, you will be notified in your application thread.

Current Officers:

  • Duskhawk
  • Megasheep
  • Morkai
  • Doubleu
  • Thorlina
  • Kaladis

We all have a lot of alts, so if you don't see one of those names on, just /w a member and they can point you in the right direction.

Raid Times:
We're currently raiding Thursdays and Sundays around 5:30 p.m. ST.
