Cyber Nations Forum Rules 07/03/2016Cyber Nations Forum Rules
In the process of registering on this forum, all players--including you--agreed to accept these terms and conditions and the terms and conditions of Invision Power Board. In doing so you essentially signed an electronic contract pledging to have read the rules and TOS and agreeing to follow the rules and TOS as written. It is your continued responsibility to read, follow, and keep up-to-date with the CN rules.
The following are basic guidelines for use of the Cyber Nations community forum. Anyone caught disobeying these guidelines will be issued a warning. The forum staff works on a five warn limit policy unless the situation calls for more appropriate action ranging from a verbal warning to a double warn and suspension to an immediate ban, etc. Just because something is not listed specifically here as illegal does not mean it's allowed. All players are expected to use common sense and are personally responsible for reading the pinned threads found in the Moderation forum. Questions regarding appropriateness or other concerns can be sent via PM to an appropriate moderator. A permanent ban on the forums results in a game ban, and vice versa. Please note that the in-game warn system works on a "three strikes you're out" policy and that in-game actions (including warnings and deletions) may not be appealed. For more information regarding in-game rules please read the Cyber Nations Game Rules. 1.) First Warning
2.) Second Warning
3.) Third Warning (48 hour suspension at the forum)
4.) Fourth Warning (120 hour suspension at the forum)
5.) Permanent Ban Game Bans and Forum Bans
If you receive a 100% warn level on the forums, you will be subject to removal from the forums AND have your nation deleted and banned from the game at moderator(s) discretion. If you are banned in the game, then you will be banned from the forums. Process of Appeals
Players may not appeal any in-game actions. This includes cheat flags, canceled trades, content removals, warn level increases, nation deletion, and bans from the game. Players may appeal individual forum warnings. You may only appeal a warning if you can show with evidence that it was unwarranted or unduly harsh. If a reasonable amount of time has passed (no less than one month and preferably longer) in which you have demonstrated reformed behavior than you may request a warning level reduction. Wasting staff time with inappropriately filed reports and/or unfounded appeals will result in a warn level raise. Repeat incidences will result in a ban from the forum. Bans are permanent. Banned players may appeal to the Senior Staff if they believe grounds exist (very, very rare) in which they state their case with evidence and why explain why they believe they deserve to be allowed back into Cyber Nations. This process is not quick and the investigation into cases may last three minutes or three weeks or more depending on the individual situation. The only place where discussion of moderator action is acceptable is in the appropriate Moderation forum. Posting commentary on or disagreement with moderator action elsewhere will result in a warn level raise. Posting
All posts must be in English. Common phrases in other languages will be allowed so long as they are translated upon request. Foreign languages are permitted in signatures and avatars, however. Certain areas of the forum require you to have a nation in either standard CN or CN:TE. If you have... A SE and a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are allowed to post in either SE or TE areas of the forum. You must have your CN:TE nation name listed in your profile to post in the CN:TE section of the forum.
Just an SE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are not allowed to post in any TE areas of the forum.
Just a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your TE nation name or ruler name. Your must have your CN:TE nation name listed correctly in your profile. You are not allowed to post in any of the SE areas. You are allowed to post in the water cooler, question center and the moderation forums. Other than that, all your posts need to stay in the TE area. Flame/Flamebait/Trolling
Flaming is expressing anger or lobbing insults at a person/player rather than a character, post, idea, etc. Flamebait are posts that are made with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking another user into rule-breaking. Trolling is submitting posts with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking a specific group into rule-breaking. Forum users should not be participating in any of these, and doing so will result in a warning. Topic Hijacking
Hijacking is forcing the current thread discussion off of the original topic and usually results in spam or flame from either side. Forum users found hijacking threads will be given a warning. Repeat Topics
One topic is enough. Repeat topics will be locked, removed, and the author given a warning. Users found creating repeat topics after others were locked by staff will receive a warn raise. Joke Topics
Topics created as a joke are prohibited. Joke topics will be locked and the author warned. This includes topics in which the author is making an announcement “for” another in-game alliance. Humorous threads are permitted; it is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what is merely satire and what is actually a joke topic. Spam
Spam is defined as creating posts or topics containing only contentless material of any kind. Users found spamming will receive a warning. Examples include (but are in no way limited to) posts containing nothing but smilies, "+1", "QFT", "this" any other one/few-word contentless combination, joke threads, or posts containing quotes and anything that counts as spam by itself. Adding words to a post with the express intent of avoiding a spam warn will result in a warning. These posts and other similar contributions have no substance and hence are considered spam. Posts of "Ave", "Hail" or any other one word congratulatory type are acceptable as one word posts. Emoticon type posts such as "o/" without accompanying text is still not allowed. Posts containing only images are considered spam, unless the image is being used in the Alliance Politics sub-forum and then the actual text of the image be placed into spoiler tags. Posting in All Caps
Posting large amounts of text in capital letters is not permitted. Use discretion when using your caps lock key. No Discussion Forums
There are forums that are not for discussion and are used strictly for game and forum staff to address certain issues, bugs, etc. The following forums are not open to discussion: Report Game Abuse, Report Forum Abuse, and Warn/Ban Appeals. Only moderators and the original poster may post in a thread, period, with absolutely no exceptions. Users found disobeying this guideline will receive an automatic warning for each offense. Moderation Forums
All Moderation forums also maintain pinned threads clearly marked as required reading before posting. Failure to read and follow required reading and procedure in a Moderation forum will result in a warning. Examples include posting requests in the wrong forum, failure to include all required information in posts, etc. The standard of conduct and enforcement of rules in Moderation forums is strictly enforced and the repercussions for disregarding rules or disrespecting staff are harsh. Read the pinned threads before posting and you will be fine. Namecalling
Excessive or unqualified namecalling is not allowed in IC forums; namecalling should also never make up the bulk of a post. Namecalling is prohibited entirely in all OOC forums. Filtered Words
Any attempts to evade the word filter will result in a warning. The terms we have filtered are filtered for a reason and no excuse for evasion will be accepted. Filter evasion includes censoring or deliberately misspelling part of a filtered word. If you link to a website, image, video, etc., containing profanity, please post a disclaimer before the link. The moderation staff may still remove links if the content is deemed too obscene. Harassment
Forum users should not be stalking/harassing others on the forums. Anyone found stalking players from topic to topic, etc., will be subject to a warning. Gravedigging
Gravedigging is not allowed anywhere on the forums. Gravedigging is "bumping" old topics which haven't been active for quite some time (four to seven days is standard depending on the nature of the thread and how many pages back it had been pushed before bump). Your warn level will be raised if you are caught doing this. The Suggestion Box and Black Market forums are partial exceptions to this rule. Suggestions/ideas in that forum may be posted in regardless of age PROVIDING that the reviving post contains constructive, on-topic input to the original topic or discussion. Black Market threads may be bumped by the author if there is new information about the offered exchange (i.e open aid slots). In the Player Created Alliances forum it will not be considered gravedigging to bump a topic up to a year old, so long as the alliance in question still exists and it is not a duplicate thread. Signatures
Those who fail to read and abide by these rules will have their signatures removed and receive a warning. You may have only one image per signature which may not exceed the maximum size of 450 pixels wide by 150 pixels tall. You may have no more than 8 lines of text and text size cannot exceed size 4. Each quote-tag, image and empty line count as a line. Inappropriate Images and Other Disallowed Images
Images that are sexual in nature or have sexual overtones are prohibited. It is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what constitutes sexual overtones. Depictions of kissing are permissible provided there are no sexual implications. Images depicting female nipples are prohibited outright. Making “ASCII art” is prohibited regardless of the image depicted. Using photos or likenesses of another Cyber Nations player is also prohibited. Drug References
Images and posts promoting illegal drug use are prohibited. References to drugs are acceptable only if the moderation staff deems that it is not promoting the use thereof. Obscene Content and/or "Account Suicide"
Anyone caught posting vulgar material (including but in no way limited to pornography, "gross," "tubgirl," "lemonparty," photos depicting RL illegal acts such as violence towards humans or animals, child pornography, death photos, and any other obscene or offensive material in either text form or picture form) will have their account(s) permanently banned, and their ISP contacted along with any other applicable internet and RL authorities. OOC Threats / Revealing Personal Information
An OOC threat of any nature will equate to an automatic ban from the game and forums. Likewise, the publishing of personal information of any other player without their explicit permission is grounds for warning and/or a ban from the game depending on the severity of the offense. Death Threats / Death Wishes
A death threat or a death wish of any nature (including but not limited to telling another player to commit suicide) will result in at very least a 40% warn level increase and 2 day suspension from the forums, with harsher punishments, including a complete ban from the forums and game, up to the discretion of the moderation staff. Quoting Rulebreaking Posts
Do not quote any post with obscene content or any other content that has to be removed by the moderation staff. Doing so makes it more difficult for the moderation staff to find and remove all such content and will result in a warn level increase. Putting rulebreaking posts of any kind in your signature is prohibited. Forum Names
With the exception of moderator accounts, all forum accounts must match up exactly with the ruler name or nation name of your in-game country. Those found not matching up will be warned and banned immediately. Forum account names may not be profane or offensive. Multiple Forum Accounts
With the exception of moderators, if you are caught with multiple forum accounts, the multiple account(s) will be banned, warn level raised, and your identity will be announced by a moderator to the CN community so rule-abiding players can take IC action against you. Multiple forum account offenders will receive a varying percentage warn level raise and/or a permanent ban on a case-by-case basis. Posting For Other Players
Posting for banned or suspended players is prohibited, as is posting for any person without a nation. This includes making warn and ban appeals on their behalf. Imitation &. Impersonation
Imitation in terms of this forum is mimicking the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in an attempt to be satirical or generally humorous. Impersonation in terms of this forum is copying the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in order to present the illusion that the person is in fact that user. Imitation is fine and can be quite funny. Impersonation is disruptive and is warnable. Please pay attention to the subtle difference between these two concepts. A player may not impersonate another player by emulating the characteristics of someone else's past or present account in an attempt to harass, stalk, or flamebait. Creating a new forum account in an attempt to impersonate a standing account will result in deletion and banning without notice. Any attempt at imitation and/or impersonation of moderators and game staff is strictly prohibited and will be met with harsh repercussions. Avatars
Size for avatars is limited by the forum mechanics, therefore there is no size issue for a user to worry about. Avatars must be in good taste, and any avatar containing a picture that is too violent, disgusting, sexually explicit, insulting to another player or staff member, etc. will be removed. Avatars that are potentially seizure inducing will not be permitted. Players may not "borrow" the avatars of any moderator past or present without permission. Swastikas and Nazi Imagery
The swastika may not be used in signatures or avatars. Pictures of swastika's are acceptable for use in the In Character (IC) sections of the roleplay forums, so long as its context is In Character, and not Out Of Character. Pictures of Hitler, mentioning of the Holocaust, etc... have no place in the roleplay forums, since these people and events existed in real life, and have no bearing or place in the Cyberverse. Other Nazi or SS imagery is forbidden in all forums. Moderation Staff
The revealing of the private identities of any Cyber Nations staffers past or present is strictly prohibited, and thus no speculation/accusation of identity is allowed. Doing so is grounds for moderator action against your account appropriate to the offense, including a full forum/game ban. Claims of moderator bias should be directed to the highest level of authority--the Head Game & Forum Mod/Admin, Keelah. Claims of moderator bias without supporting evidence is grounds for a warning. Blatant disrespect of the moderator staff is strictly prohibited. This includes but is not limited to spoofing moderator accounts in any way, sig/avatar references, baiting, flaming, rude demands, mocking, attitude, and unsubstantiated claims of bias. They are volunteers hired to enforce the rules. If you have a problem with the way a moderator is enforcing the rules or the rules themselves please contact Keelah. Attempting to use the moderation staff as a weapon by abusing the report system in an attempt to get another player warned or banned is strictly prohibited. Do not ask about becoming or campaign to become a moderator. The moderators are drawn from CN membership but moderation positions are by invitation only. Asking to become one will substantially decrease your chances of ever being asked. Aiding Rule Violators
Any user found to know of a serious rule violation without reporting it to a game moderator (eg. knowledge of a user with multiple nations) will be given a warning or, in more serious cases, have their nation deleted. Aiding Banned Players
Any user found to be harboring, aiding or otherwise knowingly helping a banned user will be deleted. This includes knowing of their existence within the game without reporting it to the game-moderation staff. Questionable Actions and Content
The forum rules are not designed to cover every scenario. Any action that is seen to be counter-productive or harmful to the forum community may be met with moderator action against your account. The Cyber Nations Moderation Staff reserves the right to take action against your account without warning for any reason at any time. Private Transactions
Nation selling and other private transactions via such auction sites like eBay is against the Cyber Nations terms and conditions. While our moderators cannot control what people do outside of the game you are not allowed to promote such private exchanges on our forums without expressed permission from admin only. Anyone found to be engaging in such activity without permission will be banned from the game. Advertising
Advertising other browser games and forums is prohibited. Soliciting donations towards commercial causes is also prohibited. If you wish to ask for donations towards a charitable cause, please contact a moderator before doing so. Extorting Donations
Donations are excluded from any kind of IC payment. Anyone found extorting others for OOC payments will be warned in-game and/or banned. Third Party Software
Third party software is not allowed to be advertised on these forums by any means (post, signature, PM, etc). These programs can easily be used to put malware on the user's computer, and as such can cause huge security issues. Anybody who is caught spreading links to these will at the very least have their warning level increased. Other Forum Terms & Rules Please take a moment to review these rules detailed below.

No matter what theme or witty thing I come up with, there will be more things that I want to say. And that's before getting to any meat. Or even the shoutouts. Oh the shout outs. Too many to even start. But I'm not doing that. My format will be different. Look guys. I've been playing for 10 years. I'm done. Liberating. I deleted my nation. So I don't even belong here anymore. Rotty is taking over Invicta, if anyone was wondering. If the game is bonked, please Moderation fix that. He's heir, and I deleted. Invicta is by all rights his. And that's it. No one will read or care about a speech. And I'm over my length as is. I will just say; if you want to stop play, please just stop playing. Pretending you're going to quit, or just complaining endlessly, while doing nothing to change anything, just, it's disgusting to watch, and ruins the fun. Not to mention it will never get you what you want. I can not stand the !@#$%*ing. It literally drove me out. Almost did after EQ. And to those who do want to play; just play. Have fun. It's a game. Y'all people are crazy. Just try smiling. Alright, I'll get off my milk crate. It was real guys. -KiWi
I humbly request that the New Pacific Order levy formal charges against Invicta. The vagueness of the crime, makes it hard for me to counter. I may be guilty. But I want you to charge me. Give it to me straight. I want you to tell me why. If you do so privately, if you reply here; if the reason is something concrete, or you simply wanted some spice. I demand you respond. Yours sincerely, -KingWilliam

The Union for Sphere Stability on Red The Red Sphere has historically had one of the most harmonious existences of any sphere, and the undersigned alliances to hereby pay homage to that peaceful existence and seek to continue it by enacting the following articles. The Supreme Soviet of the Red Sphere (hereafter referred to as "Senate") is hereby established and shall be ruled under the following articles. Article I - From Each According to his Abilities, to Each According to his Needs The New Pacific Order will hereafter limit itself to only possessing three out of the five seats on the new Senate. Invicta will receive one of the seats and the fifth seat shall be given to the Union of Communist Republics. This agreement can be altered upon mutual agreement of all signatories should another alliance be invited to join this Pact Article II - Not One Step Back All of the undersigned parties hereby agree that the best interests of as many of the nations of the Red Sphere as possible shall be taken into account when making a decision affecting the entire Red Sphere. The Red Sphere Senate shall never be authorized as a means to wage war on any of the undersigned parties, except against rogues. The Senate shall not act on any "team proposals" without discussion between the undersigned parties. It shall continue to deal with rogues, sanctioning, and Senate Messaging as it did before the enlargement of the Senate. Article III - We Will Bury Them The signatories affirm that they have an interest in the mutual prosperity and stability of the Red Team, and it is therefore their right to fight alongside each other if they so wish. Operation of the Red Sphere Senate is only to be considered valid through the context of this Union.

The undersigned alliances shall do everything in their power to safeguard and protect the Red Senate for external threats and reserve the right to collaborate in resisting any Red Senate actions not authorized by the Union. Article IV - The Great Purge Should one of the signatories be acting in gross negligence and be in dereliction of their duties as a partner in this Union, the other parties may vote them out of the Union through a unanimous vote, after the accused party is given the opportunity to explain their reasoning behind the above stated actions in a planned meeting of all parties. Article V - Amendments This arrangement can be re-examined with the consent of all signatories in the event of changes in the number of senators available or in the event of large-scale changes in the make-up of the Red Sphere.

Back in the Summer of 2012... ...when Dierks Bentley bestrode the Earth like a colossus and the NSA only spied on other countries, a few of us over at Invicta had a crazy idea. Why not start a fake internet radio show, something like Bootleg Radio, only with less talent and professionalism? And boy, did we! Jorost & Friends debuted on June 1st, 2012, and with our powerful 100,000-watt pretend transmitter, we beamed our signal out to literally tens of homes around the world. I hosted, which since the show was named Jorost & Friends seemed like the logical choice, joined by a regular panel consisting of Nascar8FanGA (aka President Gunn), King Biscuit (aka the Midnight Beard — more on that later), Chax, and Liz, who played the girl. Well, okay, she and Nas played the girls. Together we talked about Cyber Nations and real world stuff, interviewed guests, played music, and did on-air comedy sketches, some live but most prerecorded. We became known among at least a dozen people with nothing better to do on a Friday night for our parody commercials and our, um, lack of political correctness. To put it politically correctly. Which I rarely do on air. And now we are doing it all over again. We have a fancy new website designed by Invicta's own Princess Michael Anastasia von Preußen, who slaved away over hot pixels for days working out the details. I spent about an hour just watching that opening animation when she first showed it to me. I am in awe of her talents and indebted to her hard work. She also did our slick logos. So we look professional even if we're still a bunch of shmucks. :) The new season of Jorost & Friends starts tonight at 10PM Eastern, streaming live at the new site. The format will be the same as before, with segments of talk interspersed with music and comedy. GeniusInc., host of The Apathy Report,will be joining us, and I will be doing a telephone interview with former President Bill Clinton. Some of you might have heard him on the show before. If not, and you have nothing better to do on a Friday night, I hope you'll join us! That's Jorost & Friends, 10PM Eastern, on the Jorost Radio Network. (Yeah, I know it's lame, but they make me say it. Stupid suits in corporate.) Before THAT, please join my friend King Biscuit, aka the Midnight Beard, as he spins and talks music on the aptly-named The Midnight Beard, starting at 8PM eastern, also on JRN. So come and get your fill of Invictans polluting the Interwebz with their inane chatter! And yes, there will be teasing of Nas. So much teasing. The Midnight Beard, 8pm-10pm Eastern Jorost & Friends, 10pm-12am Eastern Jorost Radio Network
FROM THE OFFICE OF THE LORD PROTECTOR May it be known to one and all throughout the World of Bob that the great Invicta alliance turns seven years old today! In recognition of this auspicious occassion, it has been Our great pleasure to declare seven days of feasting and rejoicing in the Great Hall of Invicta, and while as Head of State We cannot condone unruly or inappropriate behavior, We would note that the Master of Revels has been given the next week off. LET THERE BE CAVORTING! We hope that our fellow alliances of all colors and creeds join us for the party! Stop by our forums and tell us how cute we are at seven, what with our big gap-toothed grin. Or else tell us why we suck. We have it categorized alphabetically for your convenience. Seven years ago today a ragtag band of refugees from Novus Orbus banded together to form Invicta. Our noble Founders, Dawny and DoubleU, have long since passed into another world, but their memory remains. So too the First Generation of Invictans — Our own royal personage is one of the last. Even the stalwart Haflinger, so often a lightning rod for public opinion, has left Our emerald shores. Such is the nature of things, the cycle of life. Many years have We sat the throne, and with luck many more will We see. We have witnessed and done much in Our time in this world, and We have come to realize that it is not the wars you fight, nor the treaties you sign, but the people you meet and the friends you make that matter — in this or any world. We will spare you another meandering walk down memory lane. Suffice it to say that many faces and many names have crossed Our path in the past seven years. Whatever our past, all are welcome to stop by and say hello. Our understanding is that there will be cake. Given under Our hand and seal this 26th day of May, 2014, /s/ Jorost of the Crownlands, Lord of the Invictae and Protector of the Realm
So it is written, so it shall be. #BROHONism Lo, it has come to pass, as seasons change, so doth this realm. Before us stands this iniquity, an injustice, as though a shadow comes and falls upon us in the night. Oh foolish ones! How is it that you do not see the folly before you? There is no god but admin, and THE BROHON is his prophet. Beware, ye naysayers! There will be an accounting of all, and your infra and tech shall be weighed. And THE BROHON shall look where his eye falls. Those found lacking shall be removed from his sight posthaste, with no sound or cry or whimper. For his vengeance shall lay upon thee like a confused goat, and you shall know no peace while his ragequit echos in your mind for a thousand updates. If you do not recognize his Glory, he will punish you sternly, and replace you with men of short stature. Now we, Invicta, write what few things we write, in the same book with our brother Legion; for behold, we saw the last which he wrote, that he wrote it with his own hand; and he wrote it in the day that he delivered them unto him. And after this manner we keep the records, for it is according to the commandments of THE BROHON. And we make an end. For it is written, at the end, shall there be the record. For it is recorded, those that do not accept THE BROHON into their village will be cast aside, as if their chief was Steve Buscemi, with a head like a raisin. For it is known! Only THE BROHON shall lead his believers into the glowing green light, and only belief in him shall preserve your boat count. For THE BROHON so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, BROHON Jr, so that those who believe him him will not perish, but have eternal donations. Praise be unto him! Without his countenance shining down upon thee, there would be no treaty web or alliances or hope. There would only be chaos, and darkness, as if Ramirus Maximus was placed in charge and given crayons. O ye sinners! Why have you forsaken the words of the prophet? Blessed is the THE BROHON, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of ZI, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of new nations. And he will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know his name is the THE BROHON when he lays his vengeance upon thee. Turn now away from evil and garlic, lest ye be struck dumb and have no more utterance. Turn not to your generals and WRC; locate a virgin heifer and ride it into the town square before it is too late! Those heathen unbelievers, not recognizing the truth in front of them! Be like the true believer who follows THE BROHON wearing nothing more than a linen sheet. For when the sinners grabbed him, he pulled free of the sheet, and continued to follow THE BROHON through the streets naked. And the sinners were in awe of his glory, and there was much rejoicing. This is the true path, for it shall be known among all the land. And it came to pass, in the third day of THE BROHON, that it was recorded by the Legion. Thus has THE BROHON commanded us, saying 'go forth and be one', and so it was forevermore. Our bond was tight, like the timing of a tech deal, and our treaty endures to this day. Thus, when THE BROHON sought true believers from among his flock, to preserve his Word, the calling was felt. And so on the fifth day of THE BROHON, that the Mutual Aggression clause with Legion was activated, and so Invicta rode to war upon a flaming horse. And it was not on fire. The infidels must be purged, having polluted his holy land. How dare they! Desecrating the place of THE BROHON. Yea, it is that time that has been spoken of. The followers of THE BROHON have turned against him, and his words are twisted. And THE BROHON has turned his face against them, for the true believers shall hold judgment over all the land. O Pacifica! Why do thoust seek to destroy your namesake? Put forth your hand, surrender now, lest it is too late! Return now as one of the faithful. Do not be led astray like the sinners around you. Only through prostration of your prostate shall the tribulation be overcome. Salvation awaits! The word of the THE BROHON is clear among all who see it. Do not turn away from the golden oxen, for they carry aid packages as far as the eye can see. Wait in peace, for NSO is surely waiting as well, although not in peace. For it is written, I shall smite him with my left shoe, and his sides will hurt. Do not challenge the THE BROHON! Return to his ways, and give yourself up to him. For only through THE BROHON shall you find life everlasting. All other ways lead only to nuclear destruction and fruitcake. The heretics will seek to hide you from the truth. Do not believe their lies. Trust in the trinity: THE BROHON, THE BROHON, and THE HOLY BROHON. Do not let Farrin urinate in your ears, for his way leads to confusion, and the wrong kind of quads. If only he would be altogether silent! For him, that would be wisdom. And when THE BROHON greets you, greet him back. And when he greets you better, offer your cloak to him, so that he may sell it for gas money. Do not question the wisdom of THE BROHON. Let this testament stand true before the world. Fasten your hand unto THE BROHON's hand, and let him guide you through the judgment that awaits. Only in faith and tech shall you walk straight among thine enemies. Go throughout the land! Proclaim what you have learned, and the knowledge contained. Only through THE BROHON can there be peace among the denizens. The rewards given shall be more than can be fit into a single aid package. And upon all there is, shall the light shine upon thee and thy land. In THE BROHON we trust, Amen.

[font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif][size=6][b]Official Announcement From the Office of the Lord Protector[/b][/size][/font] Many of you may remember Dawny of New Dawnland, legendary Founder and first President of Invicta. Although she has not led our alliance for many years, and has had only a minimal presence on our shores for quite some time, still she looms large in our history, our culture, and yes, e'en the very soul of our Alliance. It is therefore my great pleasure to announce her impending nuptuals. We ask her old friends to join us in wishing her a long and happy life with her husband-to-be! Cards and gifts can be addressed to the Lord Protector's office, Canterbury, Invicta. We love you Dawny!
