The Keepers of the Code are a guild of pirates who have picked up the mantle of fighting against Jolly Roger and his undead army after the Marceline Guild suffered the loss of their leader, Captain Walter
The Keepers are comprised of GM-played characters in The Legend of Pirates Online, who interact with players in-game but also post storyline elements on TLOPO.com.
Unlike, the Marceline whose members openly confronted GM-played East India Trading Company, Royal Navy and Casa de Muertos characters, The Keepers appear to be focused on intelligence gathering and sharing with other pirates to aid covertly. This could change in time.
According to tales told by Alania Seastone, The Keepers of the Code were once a 'vast and powerful' guild but they have fallen on hard times as more members fell to Jolly Roger's forces.
At it's creation, the Brethren Court named the first Keeper of the Code. The Keeper, largely a force in his own right, established a guild to act as a network of informants as well as work in the shadows to promote and establish the Brethen Court's law across the Caribbean.
The positions of Keeper and Guildmaster were handed down to ensure the Code was kept by all pirates. Most recently, Captain Teague holds the title of Keeper and the last bestowed master of The Keepers of the Code was Jeremiah Seastone.
Jeremiah was already a strong, powerful pirate when he was given the authority by The Keeper to enforce the Court's will. To that end, Seastone had a gypsy forge him a Voodoo Staff of immense power. No pirate dared question the code in their presence, even Jolly Roger himself feared Jeremiah's wrath.
Sadly though, Seastone was not immortal and in time, age and sickness took their toll. As he withered away, Jeremiah bequethed his position to his daughter Alaina, including his formidable staff.
Initially, members of the guild did not take to the idea of this young woman usurping leadership and indeed some tried to unseat her. But, in time, mastering the staff helped her learn to master the guild and its members. That troubling time did cost The Keepers numbers, but Alania had some new strategies in mind.
The Keepers of the Code began to infiltrate the local town taverns, gathering and spreading information, as well as recruit from the regulars. It took nearly a decade, but Alania rebuilt The Keepers once more into a force for the Court. This was often done at some cost, including selling information or trading in secrets.
In most recent times, the Guild like many pirate organizations began to suffer heavy losses as Jolly Roger and Cutler Beckett briefly joined forces. Even after Beckett's demise, Jolly's power still grows and The Keepers know they are needed now more than ever.
