As a pirate you play the antagonist on the server. Often time pirates are admins and have access to infinite resources. You could essentially harass people till they give up but really you are there to provide a little bit of a fun challenge. I like the frustrate people a bit and then give them a sense of victory by "accidentally" dropping my coffee. Advertisements Advertisements Pirate factions can: Trap users on the surface and demand ransom (you are to leave them alone at the payment of 1x item, even a cup). Let them go if they really seem like they are gonna quit. Give people free 99 free coffee and hints Steal from unprotected chests (above or under ground) Steal people's portals (above or under ground, do it with some moderation, DO NOT REMOVE admin's portals) Insult people without being rude, example: you swim like a donkey, is that the best you can do? Destroy houses on the surface Repeat phrases like "you can't make it" or "just give up" Pirate factions cannot: Trap users underground Push people to quit Cuss Be a genuine pain Attack protected areas I like to harass uses a bit using useless blocks (reinforced blocks) to stop them finding secrets or to make giant pillars blocking there way, protecting them and putting signs on the pillar like "time waster" or "just give up". The whole server is a fine peace of reverse psychology. Give people an impossible challenge, tell them they can't make it and see if they have the guts to make it.
