Maelstrom Mark v.2

The Maelstrom Mark, as rendered by Kaiea Malikus

"When the rich beg on the street, When the thief enforces the law, When 'Justice' has her mask torn off and shown for the villainy beneath, When the kitts of 'Hope' who sing of freedom are captured- The day is nigh." -A verse commonly used beside Maelstrom threats, believed to be written by Murckle Mack.

Be warned: All who serve beneath the banner of Maelstrom will hereby be seen as no ally nor friend to the Imperium. You will be outcast, you will be hunted, and you will smile as you watch them all drown. To all who despise the crown, welcome.

Enemies of the ImperiumEdit

A further detailed history can be found in The Maelstrom Conflict of 1733.

Maelstrom is the crime and anarchist organization currently on terms of War against the Imperium. Headed by the mysterious Bronze Fang, a warlord bent on totally destroying the social order the Imperium was built on, and replacing it with territory warfare between clans and their warlords.

The very first mention of Maelstrom began in a thread titled "Red Vengeance" in the bilge, in which a pirate captain Murckle Mack was hired by a beast named Bronze Fang to attack and sink the Imperium's Naval ships. The thread included Murckle's crew in a skirmish with an NPC Navy ship, and was sunk after the pirates overcame it. Mack left only one survivor, to send a message back to the Imperium. The attack took place in the month of Bugs, in the year 1732.

On the 21st of Thermidor, in the year 1733, Maelstrom agents successfully captured and hid several political leaders of Bully Harbor and the Imperium. In response, a convey lead by Minister of Niceties Marquo L. Senderjay and Minister of War Nuori Sken was sent to meet with Bronze Fang to negotiate the captured beasts' releases. Bronze Fang denied the chance to negotiate, and declared he meant for war on the city. Hours later the fighting broke out, and many of the newly reinstated factions of the VI came to the call of war, and they stood against the vast forces of Maelstrom. (See "When the Storm Breaks/Götterdämmerung" in the Thoroughfare.)

Defeat and marginalizationEdit

During the final battle in the harbor, Maelstrom forces found themselves eventually overwhelmed by superior Imperial firepower and eventual Stoatarian Guard reinforcements. Great numbers of the organisation's agents where killed in the destruction of the Jetty Fort on the coast, which Maelstrom had fallen back to, and this, combined with Bronze Fang's death, was effectively the end of Maelstrom as any sort of threat to the Imperium's continued existence.

Most of Maelstrom that survived the battle were either imprisoned or ditched the cause altogether during losing half of the battle. A small remnant of Maelstrom remains operational, headed by Raden S. Reddflank, though it is unknown how long this will continue. 

The Red SlayerEdit

The group has known to be associated with the pirate ship Red Slayer, captained by the wildcat Murckle Mack (Alt to Brek Larks). The Slayer has been the major piece of the Maelstrom sea forces.

OOC: The frigate is not a Navy ship and therefore cannot actually be boarded as a normal ship. Rather, it is considered an NPC for Maelstrom and is often used in these plots.

OOC: Since Gotterdamerung and Murckle Mack's death the fate of the Red Slayer is uknown. It was last seen, if briefly, in the prelude up to the naval battle in that thread and was presumably either destroyed or captured in it.
