  1. How do you kill a man without fear? By putting the fear in the man. I have never seen so many fearless men in battle at my side before, and despite the mass declarations of war, the bandwagoning, and the overwhelming odds, no one has been able to put that fear in any of us. We stand tall and proud in defense of our friends. The amount of infrastructure that I have incinerated continues to grow, the tech that I have destroyed is beginning to reach a frightening level, and the land that I've razed is almost equivalent to the land I possess. Why am I so destructive? It is because I am not afraid. I watch my alliance membership lean on each other and find ways to win against overwhelming odds, and I see that they are not afraid either. I feel the highest honor being able to command these people in battle. And their goals will soon be met. We fight for the ability of our friends to no longer have the need to fight. We do not fight for either side of the No U War that started this. We are fearless in our pursuit of that peace, and hope that in our stand, we can make people realize that this entire war is downright ridiculous. The innocent suffer due to the idiocy of a few. But still, despite the mass numbers against us, we fight. And we will continue that fight for our friends until our mission is accomplished. We will not waiver, we will not lose focus. Those who are fighting us will pay for every level of infrastructure they take from us. And sooner or later, we will have peace. FEAR, NATO, LSN and all our other allies- keep up the good fight! ADI is by your side. We will fight until death to find you peace. And to the fearless members of ADI- keep your eye on the prize, stay steadfast, and keep making me proud.
  2. Yeah, it is an in character blog...
  3. "So you have an enemy, do you?" my father asked me when I was a child, to which I nodded, hurt that someone actually didn't like me. "Looks like you took a stand for something then," he said, "Because you don't make enemies by simply doing what everyone else wants you to do." In the current political climate, these words serve as my encouragement and motivation to press on. I sit at the helm of a highly controversial alliance. Some seek to discredit me as a leader. Others accuse me of causing divisions on my sphere. Many people also approach me with words of encouragement and pats on the back. The point of the matter is that none of this matters to me as much as knowing the fact that I stand for what I believe in. "Why fulfill a treaty obligation with FEAR but not help RoK?" is the question that has been asked of me more than just a few times. The answer is simple; I took a stand- twice. The first time, I decided that I would not support the destruction of my friends and the usage of a six month old casus belli to do it. I acted within the obligations of the treaty I possessed, and this decision has come to haunt me for the last month as my opposition does everything in its power to discredit my character and intentions. Now I am taking another stand. This time, I am not deciding against the entrance into a war on the winning side, but instead, I am entering this war on a front that is outmatched by twice the strength it possesses. I believe in defending my friends. If my friends decide to go out and pick a fight I believe I have the right to decide my participation in the matter, but this is not the case here. Many alliances in this war have been dogpiled, as if they already don't have enough on their plates, and my friends in FEAR were attacked. Having given my word to meet any requests of assistance, I responded when called upon, and I led my alliance bravely into battle, knowing full well that ADI is being stalked by a steadfast and unwavering foe. But defending the right thing to do is simply what I believe in. I was not lied to by FEAR. FEAR did not attempt to use me as a pawn. Their intentions were explained to me completely, and my support was given upon the merit of their word- which held true. I never would have thought that it would be too much to ask that an ally be truthful, but FEAR has re-established my faith in being able to make that request. Entering this war, however, has given me much to take pride in. ADI has shown incredible organization, determination, and strength, and out of nine targets in the first wave, eight of these targets were thrown into anarchy. This is just amazing to me, and I know that the coming waves will produce the same results. I know that I lead a band of warriors and that ADI is not made up of pushovers. I don't believe I would have had the opportunity to make such an amazing discovery of the sheer talent and awesomeness of these, my brothers in ADI, had it not been for things happening the way that they have. Being responsible for an entire alliance can be painful. The decisions are never easy, the scrutiny can be hard to bear, and the constant demands on one's time can be annoying. However, at the end of the day, when an alliance leader sees his alliance succeed at something, despite how insignificant his alliance may be, there is a sense of glory that exists that no one may ever take from him. I am proud to say that I am leading such an alliance. Therefore, I will drink to ADI tonight, and I will toast to my brethren in FEAR. And I will remember my friends in MHA, and wish that they may not come across any unbearable harm. I will remember my friends in NATO and in Invicta, my anime loving buddies in SOS, my pals in WAPA, the bunnies in UCN and our little brothers in LSN. Yes, it is my friends that make this all worth it. It is in my friends that I find pain, that I find honor and that I find glory.
  4. Independance- such a beautiful city to fly over at night. What was once the humble city that founded New Aligned States' beginnings has become such a thriving metropolis. I call it my home, but sometimes, I don't know if I even recognize the place anymore. It is so much different than the battered and war torn village it once was. My name is John Warbuck, and I am the High Chancellor of New Aligned States. This nation also happens to the the capital of an entire alliance, called the Aqua Defense Initiative. Warbuck Palace, the Palace made of white gold, was once a private place for my humble staff to meet with me in our early prosperity. It was the first gift that the people of New Aligned States gave to me that was in the form of a national wonder. They made it a Great Monument in honor of me. I still remember when they completed the project, and cut the red tape. The amount of beer consumed that night was ungodly. Now the palace has entire halls dedicated to housing foreign affairs and coordination with member nations of ADI, and a Hall for the Sentinels to meet in and cast their votes for important alliance matters. The east wing also houses the Council of Guardians and all of their offices. It seems to me that the palace has more foreign staff than domestic nowadays. If I ever want to visit a foreign country, I only need to walk up the brilliant, shining steps of Warbuck Palace. But sometimes, when I want to get away from everything and return to my roots, I'll take a quiet reprieve and head down to Decatur, where it all began. I have to admit that it is very hard to escape my own celebrity, but in Decatur, it is quite different. Being a political celebrity is one thing, but when I walk around with foreign celebrities like Tautology, Canik, or Scutterbug, it only magnifies the scene, drawing in the need for more security and personal escorts. In Decatur, I am more able to slip between the cracks, and have the hope of being able to walk around like a normal man- a citizen of NAS. I visit the barn where I led the charge during the Battle of the Barn that would lead to the establishment of what is now a great and prosperous nation, and I remember just what it is that I am here for. All of the nations in the Aqua Defense Initiative have their own "barns" where their nations got their start, and now the thriving metropolis of Independance is their new symbol of hope. It is a wonderful time when things are new, and the prospects of greatness in the months and years to come are still visions yet to come true. And so, I write these things now to be able to look back upon. The seeds of a new alliance, destined for greatness, and the way things look. I know that in a year, it will not look the same, just as my nation became a giant, so shall this alliance, in time. I welcome you, the readers to be able to follow me along in this journey, and to guess, just as I am forced to do, at what lies at each new turn. There will be times of joy and times of hardship, but in the end, I know that there will be one great tale to tell. Whatever happens, I'm glad that this journey is shared with friends.
