Any single player or a crew that wants to become an emissary must first buy an emissary flag from one of the representatives of The Gold Hoarders, The Merchant Alliance, or the Order of Souls. To purchase an emissary flag, a players must have at least rang 15 in selected company. The flag costs 20 000 gold coins. The Reaper's Bones offers their flag to any player who manages to reach their hideout, The Reaper's Hideout island.
