About Dark Marauders

Greetings CMDRs!

I am Pirate Lord ThePirateOrc, leader of the Dark Marauders which has been around since 3302. We are a group of pirates who over time have been respected by the PvP community. We strive to take cargo from traders and to provide a good cargo removal service free of charge. There are many areas of piracy which over time our members have mastered.

These areas are:
  • hostage taking
  • deception
  • black mail
  • robbery
  • stealth piracy

Our aims to plunder cargo off people and CMDRs through a range of techniques.

Our rules no combat or menu logging at all, no killing people for no reason/ compliance from the trader gets a 24hr pass.

Our RoE free vs. bounty hunters (KWS and / or interdicter equipped ships), space cops, white knights, traders' escorts and KoS (CMDR or squadron ID).

We are one of very few player groups that engage in PvP piracy and we insure that our rules (including RoE) and standards are being met to ensure that the reputation of our notorious faction isn't brought down. We enjoy robberies, pirate raids at the CG (i.e. Raid in Reorte), BGS deception, hostage taking / kidnapping and many other criminal activities...

We have a YouTube channel run by Quartermaster Hairy Polo: Dark Marauders TV

For other piracy stuff please visit also the Oddball1975 YouTube channel: Cock in Space

Landlubbers can apply on our Discord server here The Dark Marauders Discord or using one of the threads we have started on Reddit Elite Dangerous Wings Lookn For Landlubbers or on the FDEV Forum Dark Marauders PvP Piracy. Please take note our recruitment process does not follow a straight or standard process, more over the doors for specific groups (i.e. Kraken Squad or PvP Piracy) or platforms (i.e. PC) may not be open everytime.

Feel free to contact us for any enquiry regarding our recruitment process and/or our services.

A brief introduction on what we do and how we do it:

Pirate Headquarters it's where the action begins!  Our chiefs and squad leaders work constantly on new missions and several criminal activities like robberies, piracy raids into specific systems (such as where the CG or Interstellar Initiatives take place), hostage situations and all other things which made us infamous in the Galaxy. Only the most experienced CMDRs that are a master of piracy or assassination may aspire to be part of the DMPS headquarters.

Kraken Squad every sailor knows what the Kraken is within the Dark Marauders. The Kraken Squad is our top notch assassination squad for what concerns all combat activities and heavy artillery deployment. Led by a legendary Marauder and made up of ace CMDRs, the Kraken Squad represents one of the most feared opponents in the deep space. The Kraken Squad is the spearhead of the DMPS fleet when raids are taking place, offering the best protection to our piracy ships on the battlefield. Watch them in action!

Rum Runners is there any system that needs rum? Or narcotics, may be weapons... or slaves? This is a call for our Rum Runners, the comrades who perform "special deliveries" for our Dark Marauders PMF as well as a wide range of PvE businesses. These activities may include BGS-related stuff, power play, Xeno hunting, exploration, CZs, NPCs pirating, smuggling and more. !!! WE ARE RECRUITING RUM RUNNERS !!!

Customer Complaints Office we take great care of our clients and our priority is the satisfaction of our customers. That's the reason why the DMPS have established, since 3304, a Customer Complaints Office which is in charge of addressing every complaint regarding our services and, at the same time, oversees that all DMPS members are always allowed to offer their services without detriment.

Embassy Office the DMPS have established diplomatic ties across the Galaxy and the Embassy Office is where all of them are managed. But since "all warfare is based on deception", in order to reach its goals the Embassy needs to rely on a dense and complex network of spies, dopplegangers and double agents. The Embassy Office is also responsible for all the under cover BGS activities and intelligence regarding the Dark Marauders PMF.

Imagination is a deadly weapon, it pays to keep it sharp.
