General Information

Officer in Command: The Lords of the Burning Sea have a clear rank structure. The Officer in Command is always the person with the highest Rank who is in game. It is necessary that you follow his orders without a doubt.

Chain of Command: Remember to use your chain of command. I.e.: If you are having a problem with something or somebody ask your next rank in the command chain. This way your "Flag Admiral" doesn't get bombarded with questions and/or complaints. If you are a midshipman just ask a S.L. or Lieutenant. If the problem is a "biggie" the upper ranks will be aware in good time. This doesn't mean you can't talk to the upper ranks. This Society was founded on good conversation and many friendships have been made.
