Welcome to Iron Pony Merc Corp.
We are a Star Citizen pony group interested in building a more serious organization that is focused on having fun while getting results. We have a mix of players ranging from casual to hardcore and share the common goals of being the best pilots we can be and having fun at the same time. We are looking for pilots who have an interest in improving their skills and taking on challenging missions as a group. If this seems interesting then you just might fit right in at Iron Pony Merc Corp. We plan to keep the "small company" feel even as we grow and have no interest in getting so large that most members don't know each other because that just isn't fun.
Iron Pony Merc Corp is an independent pony org. We're not some sub-org of another larger org nor are we a collection of allied orgs. We exist as an independent merc group and members will have many options for merc contracts based on their gameplay preferences (Ship combat, FPS, even non-combat roles such as exploration or support roles). We do allow affiliate access to those who have an interest in being friends with us as well as those who share common interests although we may decline affiliate requests if we feel such an arrangement is not in the best interest of Iron Pony Merc Corp.
Our official alignment is going to be on the UEE side of neutral. This means most of our activities will fall into the "lawful category" but at times our members may take jobs that could be considered "unlawful". We do not restrict the activities of our members but we may not always be able to help if a member chooses to be totally unlawful and ends up being attacked by PC's or NPC's we have friendly relations with. If you want to be a pirate for example we do allow it but it's at your own risk.
We will not require any set activity time, it is up to each member how often they play Star Citizen with us. We hope most members will be active but sometimes real life does not allow this and we understand. Our application process is long enough for us to get to know new recruits as well as them getting to know us. It is not so long that it feels like a long term effort to get a promotion in a real-world job. This is a game not a job and members will not be expected to be "on-call" as might be the case in some "hardcore" groups. We believe that proper training will allow us to be competitive in Star Citizen's Persistent Universe without needing to go too far in the hardcore direction.
What roles are we looking for?
We are looking for all types of roles including roles not listed below. The highest priority roles are:
Multi-crew ship pilots
Cargo ship pilots
Support ship pilots
Support crew members
Boarding and security crew members (FPS combat)
Recruiting has started, the rules can be found here or by clicking the rules button in the menu bar at the top of the page. After reading the rules the next step is filling out an application using the Join Us button at the top of the page. Information about the game Star Citizen can be found at https://robertsspaceindustries.com.
Unhappy with your current org and want to complete our application process before leaving your current org? Select yes on option 8 when filling out the application form and ask about a confidential application in the text box. We'll leave you tagged as just a regular user until the process is complete to allow applicants to know the results of their application before leaving their current org.
Support for a second official game added!
As of May 07, 2015 we are adding a secondary official game that members can play with us – Starfighter Inc. More info can be found at https://impellerstudios.com. We believe these 2 space games can be supported by our group in a way that will give us a stronger presence in both games. At this time potential members will still need to join us for Star Citizen to play Starfighter Inc with us as a full member but this may change in the future if there is strong interest in Starfighter Inc.
