Please Note: Money drops rules are subject to change depending if we decide that the ls will fund Limbus and/or Dynamis runs.

LS & Forum Rules and & Etiquette
This is a simple set of rules that is to be expected from all linkshell members new and old. These rules are not in place to make you feel restricted, there here to make The Black Pearl as a linkshell grow stronger as we build to work our success on being a strong team with strong friendship.

- Respect each other: It's noted that people cant get on with everybody, however, while in a linkshell we ask that people respect each other and refrain from any comments or arguments that may affect the linkshells morale. This roughly means, keep all your rude comments or jabs at other linkshell members to yourself & have fun.

Ok I myself have seen enough of this throughout my FFXI career and I have personally quit the game from utter disgust of some people.

Drama will NOT be tolerated within the linkshell.

For example, if two members in the linkshell that take out all their anger at each other. Try to settle your differences in a civilized manner with the /tell function of the game. If this does not solve your problem, please /tell one of the linkshell leaders and we will try to settle your differences the best we can.

If we see any of the above within the linkshell chat, The linkshell leaders will intervene. The people involved in the incident will be asked to stop their current behavior. If then, the member(s) ignore or refuse, you will face removal from the Linkshell.

Please refrain from begging other ls members to help you. Weather this be in linkshell chat or via private /tells to other members. If that person has clearly stated that they are unable to help with any specific request, we would prefer if you respect that person's decision.

Members will not be allowed to DEMAND things from other linkshell members. As a group focusing on teamwork we will try to help you as soon as we can, but remember we are not a charity. Help will only be given to those that help others wherever they can.

The keyword there being TEAMWORK

These rules also apply to the forum, We will not tolerate any abuse on the Forum as nether in the Linkshell.


Interactions with other Linkshells.
We want our Linkshell to become a respected name among other linkshell's and within the Ifrit server in general. To accomplish this we must also respect other linkshells.

Here's a few pointers that will not be tolerated:

While HNM/NM/SKY camping etc:

- Name calling: Weather the insult is aimed at one particular person or another linkshell. Name calling not only makes you look stupid, but tarnishes our linkshells name. Which above all we do not want.

- MPK or Lagging: While trying to claim a monster by fair means is fine, blatantly trying to overwhelm another linkshell purely to steal a monster that they have claimed will seriously put a bad word around about our linkshell. I must ask that all people that attend on HNM/NM trips wait to see if a rival linkshell wipes to a monster, once the name has turned yellow then claim as fast as you can. This is fine.

These rules not only apply to linkshell members but also linkshell leaders. We are all players in the end. Let's try to make our name one to be respected for years to come.

Regarding forums sigs and avatars.
All avatars MUST NOT be any bigger than 100x100. if i find any to be bigger then this they will be automatically resized.

Also for sigs, there is no restriction, but please keep them to a respectable resolution as not to hinder the loading times of our slower connection members.

And remember:

Friendship & respect.

Team Gain rather than personal gain.

Have fun.


The Black Pearl -End Game Rules
1. End game events are by invitation from the ls leaders, the admin's reserves the right to refuse participation from members without recourse.

2. End game lotting rules follows The Black Pearl's point system. Which you can view on the points system below.

3. Items from end game events are intended to strengthen the LS in general and people with that notion will have precedence over others. We focus on team gain not personal gain.

4. General consideration for peoples main jobs will need to be considered when lotting on items. e.g Byakkos Haidate would be Ninja main priority.

5. End game events are structured as a way for our team to progress in the game both personally and as a team.

6. All end game members must agree that development of potential members is an essential part of the End game activities.

7. All end game members must support the LS goal to best of their ability as set forth by the ls leaders

The Black Pearl's leaders organize these events for our members to have fun and not intended to be treated as work or requirements.

Sky Point System
All sky participants either Core Sky team members or Casual Sky participants will receive.

1) 2 points per hour spent in sky helping the LS during sky event.

2) 1 point per 1/2 hour spent helping with the sky event.

3) If sky run is cancelled due to poor attendance the people that did show up will receive 2 points for their time and commitment.

4) Members will receive warning if late arriving for sky farming session and if the behavior continues they risk being deducted 1 point from the total points. This is to ensure promptness and starting sky run on time. It is up to the sky leader to implement this rule.

5) Members will be able to spend their points on items from sky however job and job level requirements will come into consideration on abjuration and armour lot items. Members should try to allow others that need the item more to lot first out of common courtesy.

Bonus Points Earned

To encourage our members to earn additional points towards their sky points the following has been added:

1) 1 Point per hour spent farming a god item on the members OWN time OUTSIDE of the regular sky farming/God events. This must be reported under the "Bonus Sky Points Earned" section of the forum and confirmed with a ls leader. They will then be added to your total

2) 2 Points will be given to each member of the LS party for obtaining the god pop item on their OWN time OUTSIDE of regular sky farming/God events. This must be reported under the "ls Bonus Points Earned" section of the forum and confirmed with a council member. Item must be turned over to sky leader to be counted.

Lotting rules.
Number of Items person can lot on.

People will only be able to obtain one item per sky event. This item could be a rare/ex Abjuration, a piece of armor or a rare high value item. NO exceptions will be made to this rule.

Lotting Priority
Since some people will opt for earning points by attending God Days rather then Farming & God Days, priority lotting will be given to those who have attended both farming & god LS events over those that have earned all if not the majority of their points by attending only God Days.

ex: MrAzz
Total Sky Farming Sessions Attended 14
Total God LS Events Attended 4
Total Sessions Attended 18

ex: MrLeech
Total Sky Farming Sessions Attended 1
Total God LS Events Attended 6
Total Sessions Attended 8

This rule is being implemented to ensure that those people who have done the majority of the work by attending both farming & God days will have first dibs on attaining the items, gear, and abjuration dropped by the gods.

Basically boils down to this : Those that do the most work get the items
first. Please keep in mind that to obtain items from Gods one must still have the correct number of points that the item has been valued at.

UPDATE NOTE as of 6/3/08: All drops will now be listed at the beginning of each god fight by myself, You are then to set in your comment what you want to lot. After the fight if your item drops and you have the points for it you will be allowed to lot.

Also In order to prevent loot monopolizing, and to help distribute items to the jobs and people who can best utilize them, The muppetshow also employs a "Main Job rule" - when members join they choose one job as their "Main" job. They will then get priority over people bidding on an item for a non-main (alternate) job.

Rot Lots
If for some reason people do not lot on an abjuration it becomes available to members at a cost of 10 points. Only people who have a job leveled that can use the item will be allowed to lot on such items. Only people who have not already obtained an item during the current days sky events will be able to lot the given rot lot item.

High Value Rare Drop items

These items will be lotted by the linkshell leader and used to fill up the ls bank which is used to fund our Dyanmis, Einherjar and Limbus events.

Dynamis Rules

1) You have to specify a piece of AF2 you want or job that you are going for and are not allowed to lot any other AF in that perticular zone until you have recieved it. For example, Say you are a 75WAR and have 73SMN as your second job, Then we have a 75SMN main also attending the same runs.

The WAR sets WAR af2 in his/her comment. and the SMN sets SMN af, natrually. If the WAR does not get his AF on that perticular run for his/her main job and nither does the SMN, The war set SMN for the next run. SMN af drops and the WAR main gets it. This is unfair to the person who's main job is SMN.

So please bare in mind that we will not enter dynamis untill everyone has set a comment for that perticular zone, I will take down all the comments and when somebody recieves their AF2 I will check them off the list.

2) Main job lotters take priority over 2nd Job lotter.

3) Free lot on 100$, allthough if you set $100 you are not allowed to lot AF2 on that perticular run. Note that you can change to AF2 on that perticular zone on the next run. We will not make you wait till you get the $100 before allowing you to lot on AF2.

4) Single bills will be lotted by a ls leader/sack for ls bank.

5) You can only Lot on AF2 if your job is Level 70+.

6) 1st run people that are not whithin the linkshell normally will have to wait out 1 dyna run before being able to lot on AF/$100's

7) If for some reason a perticular piece of AF2 goes ROT, no-one level 70+ wants it, the people currently lvling the job may lot the item.

Cool Have fun.
