The Brethren is a casual play unit for the player who likes to have the freedom to play when they can without the worry of being dropped for periods of inactivity. We focus on providing a fun and entertaining place in which to play, without mandatory meetings or required events. This does not mean our mechwarriors are not skilled or that we don't do 4 and 12 man groups, we just place enjoying the game and allow for real life as our first priorities. So come take the oath and join the Brethren as we make our mark on the MWO universe!
"Ni ceart go cur le cheile"- There is no strength without unity (Earth Gaelic)
The three skulls set on a field of fire represent our most revered forefathers; Larry, Moe, and Curly.
The periphery has long been a haven for those who find themselves hunted or destitute. Pirate bands have risen to power, claiming all they can take. Some like the Oberon Confederation and the Belt Pirates of Stars End even holding whole planets under their sway. These bands are made of hard men, survivors of inner sphere battles left for dead by the great houses after being deemed too expensive to rescue, or others who found the strict military lifestyle of the larger Merc units too confining to their lone wolf attitudes. Many are just rogues or scoundrels looking to make a quick c-bill. But even though these units aren't structured, don't discount their pilots skills and abilities. Fierce and determined, with many battles under their belts, they fight not just for c-bills and scrap, but for their very survival. And now a new power is rising, hailing from the world called The Rack, just out of Steiner space in the Rim Territories.
They are the Brethren.
Blood Moon Raiders
The Brethren is organized into "Raids", each raid having its own name, symbol, and play style. Since we are casual unit, we do not require anyone to stay in their Raid, at present the Raids are more about fun and having a unique identity for each group within the Brethren. We have one competitive unit, the Stormbringer's, for those who are looking for a little more competitive play centered around small unit tactics. The Stormbringers do require a tryout to determine your play style, all other raids are open to anyone joiing the Brethren.
The Pirate Council
Overseeing the Brethren is the Pirate Council, who handle the day to day operation of the Brethren, including moderating and maintaining the website, training the crew, keeping contact and organizing events with our Allies, and much much more.
Leading this wild band of outlaws and outcasts is the Dread High Captain Lord Curmudgeon. All hail the DHCLC!
Our rank structure follows nautical traditions, with enlisted ranks, non-comms, and officers. See the "Ranks" page for more information
