Rodentia Dominatus

Recommended Posts

To start things off, this thread is to announce the existance of Rodentia Dominatus in SE. As many of you are familiar with RD in TE, the alliance will function similarly to the way it does over there, with a few changes. Below is the charter for the alliance. Although the other 2 founders of RD are not joining with me, they are still very much a part of the alliance.
the link to our forum is:
We do not have an IRC yet.

Greetings and salivations to all who read this.
Know this and know it well, that I, (one of the 3 Founders of the alliance Rodentia Dominatus in TE) Captain B Bear do officially declare the existence of Rodentia Dominatus in Cyber Nations (Standard Edition) and now establish this charter (which has been modified from the TE RD charter to meet the needs and standards of CNSE).
We are here for the Cheesy Bacon and to have fun. All who join our ranks need to understand the basic principles of how RD works and does not work. First of all we deliver cheesy bacon to all our friends and enemies throughout CNSE, as of yet we have not managed to establish an effective delivery system. The tree-wheel drive vehicles were an epic failure. There will be new requirements and penalties which will be explained. The Government has been reworked with full explanation of that position. Truly our main objective with this alliance is to have fun, but there are rules that guide our actions.

Good luck to you. I'd also like to mention that most raiding alliances here on Planet Bob have a lower membership count before that alliance is off limits. (IE, most alliances state that any AA with over 5-10 members is off limits to raiders). But to each their own. Should be an interesting crossover :D

An alliance that attempts to avoid war through diplomacy and condones stealing from other nations by force. You'll fit in just fine here.

As a TE crossover alliance, I assume you'll be leading the charge in creating eternal war. Am I correct in this assumption, or will I be disappointed yet again?
Well that is a hope, but we still have to work on numbers before we will be ready to fight.

Well we only deal in the delivery of Cheesy Bacon, I'd have to speak to our R&D division to see if we have the ability to male sausage.

I seem to recall that several Nordreich members have belonged to this group that claims to exist in another dimension. Feel free to correct me if I'm mistaken.

Regardless, welcome, good luck, have fun, thank you come again, etc.
Yes many members of Nordriech have belonged to our TE version, and we hope to maintain our freindship with them.
