The allure of a life sailing the stars, taking only what you need and salvaging your way to respect and fear from those below you is a powerful one. This is the life of a pirate, and represents the basic concept of Piracy. Members of these independent factions build their fortunes through hijacking, stealing, and attacking other players both in space and on fledging colonies. Their lack of morals is undeniable and though they are hated by members of most mainstream factions, the success they have along with the fear and respect they command is undeniable.

Piracy represents the morally negative side of modern stellar life. A sound set of morals or codes is not to be found here, although pirates do abide to a certain version of the age old “honor among thieves” ideal where they do not steal from one another.
