Societies (Getting a New Ship)
(Redirected from Societies)
Besides buying ships, so far we've discussed stealing ships and getting free default ships. Consider though if someone were to simply give you free ships. There are a number of ways this can happen, but they all revolve around Societies.
Societies (Getting a New Ship) is part of the guide: Getting a New Ship. This guide contains the following topics:
What is a Society
If you want a new ship, ask your higher level friends. If you don't have higher level friends, make some by joining a society. Think of a society as a self-run organization of players. Society members are all part of the same Nation, but generally have members of all Careers. There are also several societies per Nation.
Societies are more than just a group of friends. You will most likely find that Pirates of the Burning Sea™ is the most fun when you play with other players. Societies facilitate just that type of play.
How Societies are Run
Many big societies are basically communist: everyone contributes and everyone shares the rewards. The goal is to promote every member of the society, making the whole society stronger rather than a single individual. Low level players are not expected to contribute the same amount as high level players, so simply by joining a society, members will likely give you free ships and all that you need to level up. Of course many societies may be more capitalistic, and will only trade or sell ships to you.
Some societies may have different requirements for membership, such as requiring you to contribute economically before they will share resources with you. Keep this in mind when considering societies.

Befriending a Society
Many societies have such a successful Economy that they can help out other players who are not members of their society. Players who join societies often prefer the social aspects of the game, and so they are often more than willing to help out another player, regardless of their alliances. If you have questions, try asking members of large society.
