The life on the seas is that of constant struggle, for power and money, life and death. The name of the winners will resonate throughout the world, while the losers are forgotten. The road to becoming a pirate emperor or maybe even pirate king lie through conquest. Decimating your foes and subjugating the wild seas of the world. The time has come to establish your dominance. Rise to glory or fall to obscurity. Will you stand tall, or lift someone else higher? The world is yours for the taking. Territories is the main way for pirates to make money and spread their name. Throughout the different seas, there are dozens of island ripe for the taking. In some cases you may take one side in a civil war, defeating whichever side you choose and befriending the other. In other cases, you will have to subjugate every threat on the island. Devil Fruits will be awarded to whoever defeats the users, as well as a certain amount of money initially, and then every week, as payment for "protecting" them. After the island is captured, the pirate crew in charge will receive money every week(RL time) until another crew takes it over. Taking over an island from another crew is different from an island being conquered the first time. Since the inhabitants will be mostly subjugated, you will instead have to spend time making sure they will be loyal to you now. This will take 14 days(RP time). This is mostly to allow for the current "protectors" to arrive, should they have a spy network installed. If they do not, they will not know and it will simply take you 14 RP days to take over. Pirate Territories: Each pirate crew will be able to create a thread in whatever sea(other than new world) that they desire. This will be their main territory. I will not be possible for anyone not on the crew to visit without being guided there. This island will reward the crew depending on how active the crew members were the last week. The crew will receive 400.000 beri per level of active crew members in the last week, split evenly among their levels, after 25% has been deducted for crew coffers. In short this means pirates will have a weekly paycheck of 300.000 beri per level, and the crew gets 100.000 beri per level of crew members active that week.
