25 Days of Raidmas

It was said thousands of years ago that the son of a great deity would come to Planet Bob to wash away the sins of the mischievous everywhere.

Wise Men were given signs!

Shepherds were told by Angels!

And one day, on a cold December Night, a baby was born to a virgin.

"Hideous! Ugly! Kill it with Fire!"

None of them understood what gift they had been given. They begrudgingly kept him however, and gave him the name Trollus.

Trollus grew up. He spoke frankly and gathered great amounts of followers to his cause. He preached against the weak and cowardly, those who did not have the spine to do what needed to be done to save themselves. But most of all, he hated the "moralists".

But as many allies as Trollus had, he had thrice as many enemies. These "moralists" used their faux moralism to persecute Trollus and his followers as much as possible. And in their greatest evil they murdered Trollus himself.

But Trollus foresaw this event; in his death he would wipe away the sins of raiders everywhere. Though their savior was slain the followers of Trollus carried on. They created great raiding empires and fought for Trollus' ideas.

As such from December 1st - December 25th the Brotherhood of Steel will make a concerted effort to raid the unaligned and unprotected (especially on Red) as much as possible. We encourage all alliances to follow with us and raid.

Have a Merry Raidmas.

Yea Raiding is dumb, but I hope you raid the wrong person and start a war. :)

I'm sure you do. Will you bail out of this one though?

Who's protecting brother of steel?

We have an Optional Defense Pact with the Order of the Sword.

I have never bailed out of a war so I don't know what you're talking about. I will also not be helping you raid unaligned nations so I don't see how I could bail out.

Sorry for the intrusion in your funny discourse (which I find entertaining: bravo).

Just out of curiousity, and not intending to pursue any IC political goal (be it "moralist" or otherwise - really: I am just curious):

How was this "Trollus", as you said, «against the weak and cowardly, those who did not have the spine to do what needed to be done to save themselves» and «against the "moralists"», when his followers now (arguably) practice "FAOTU Raiding" (From Alliance On The Unaligned) and they don't even remotely try to intentionally hit the "moralists", unless some major political scheme accidentally brings them on the battlefield one against the other?

"FAOTU Raiding" can be many things and I won't even attempt to "judge" it here, but certainly it doesn't look much about strength, bravery or determination (I don't want to imply that it is the opposite: I would have said it if that had been the case).

Likewise, blaming the moralists without "doing something about it" doesn't look strong and brave either.

Was Trollus betrayed and do his followers now preach what they don't really intend to practice?

(It would be curiously exceptionally similar to a certain IRL story, you know...)

What you don't understand about raiding is that it's not about bravery, strength, or determination (well there is some determination and strength needed I suppose). Raiding is about having fun and/or making a little bit of tech.

And I personally have no beef with moralists, you can run your alliance however you please just let me run mine my way. The difference between raiders and "moralists" is that raiders don't try to push our ideology forcefully on others (hi NpO). Which, in my opinion, makes us more moral.

And in a way, we are doing something about it against the moralists. Every raid a raider engages pisses off the moralists. They can't do anything about it because they don't have the spine to. It's like a big "$%&@ you" to them. By engaging against three red nations I've given NPO a direct CB on me. Will they do anything? I seriously doubt it.

Also, no betrayal. But I should have put that in. :(

Maybe...an Easter story?

And to all you people who think you're funny or witty by putting up your nation link and telling me to attack it aren't really clever at all. For one thing, I'm out of range of all of you. And two, the topic specifically says unaligned and unprotected (alliances under 7 members without a protectorate) will be raided.

How dare you point this out. They're trying to feel tough. Can't you at least let them have that?
