[color="#8b0000"][b]3.1.6 The Keeper appoints his councilors, including the Overseers. The Chief Overseer is the Regent, and is appointed by The Keeper, serving at The Keeper's pleasure. [/b][/color]

COS is the Senior of the Three (3) Overseers (Triumvirs), and leads them in all matters of daily operations, as directed by the Keeper.[/b][/color]
[color="#8b0000"][b]3.2.1.2 The COS is the "[/b][/color][i]heir apparent[/i][color="#8b0000"][b]". In cases of absence, extended sabbatical, or illness of The Keeper, the COS, when so requested by The Keeper (if possible) assumes the obligations of The Keeper until such time as The Keeper returns to his duties. Upon the death or resignation of The Keeper, the COS immediately becomes The next Keeper for his/her lifetime, or until resignation.[/b][/color]

[color="#8b0000"][b]3.3.1 The Overseers are all personally accountable to The Keeper in their honorable conduct and daily performance of their high office. The Keeper may remove any Overseer if, in his judgment they should represent a threat to the safety, security or survival of The Order. In the case of the ON or OB, a Petition For Recall, voted by 75% +1 of voting members of the Sacred Council, or by Brother's Petition, signed by any three Brothers of State, will also remove these leaders from their position unless, in the view of The Keeper, in consultation with the COS, the needs should cause them to remain. A Special Recall Election will then be ordered by the Keeper, to be held within 48 hours. The purpose of this election will be to replace the Overseer to be removed.[/b][/color]
[color="#8b0000"][b]3.3.2 If a position with the Brothers of State should become vacant, the appropriate Overseer will accept the role and responsibility of the vacant Leadership position until such time as the position is filled by either appointment or election.

[/b][/color]
[color="#8b0000"][b]3.4 The Overseers serve as mentors, guides, and helpers to the Brothers of State at all times.

[b][i][color="darkred"][size="3"]Article Four: The Sacred Council of The Order[/size][/color][/i][/b]

[color="#8b0000"][b]As the Overseers and Brothers of State represent the "[/b][/color][i]upper[/i][color="#8b0000"][b]" or senior levels of government, The Sacred Council represents the "[/b][/color][i]lower[/i][color="#8b0000"][b]", or junior levels of government. The Sacred Council is charged with entirely different responsibilities, not lesser responsibilities. The Sacred Council represents one of the first, or "entry" points of activity within our government. [/b][/color]

[color="#8b0000"][b]4.1 Councilors of The Sacred Council will be elected by the fully enrolled membership. Members will be nominated by The Overseers and/or The Brothers of State to serve a term of three (3) months, with one seat being elected each month, as per the rules of this Holy Mystery of Election. [/b][/color]
[color="#8b0000"][b]4.2 We are a pure Meritocracy. Members may not request nomination for any government position. Nomination for a government is a high recognition with high honor bestowed to the nominee. Service is a privilege, and obligation of the Worthy Brother or Sister. [/b][/color]

[color="#8b0000"][b]4.5.3 Once approved, Legislation will be communicated to The Keeper for final disposition.

[color="#8b0000"][b]5.2 The Tribunal of Justice serves as the official "[/b][/color][i]Finder of Fact[/i][color="#8b0000"][b]". This body secures facts, interviews witnesses, assigns Champions for the parties at odds, and determines the innocence or guilt of the accused. [/b][/color]
[color="#8b0000"][b]5.3 All proceedings of the Tribune of Justice are private so long as the proceedings are on-going. Upon determination of innocence or guilt of the accused, all proceedings (unless sensitivity in the name of Order Security requires otherwise) of the Tribunal will be posted in the Courtyard, a public place. If and when such time exists where the Official Proceedings of the Tribunal of Justice no longer represent a threat to the security, such proceedings will, upon the official permission of The Keeper, be posted publicly, as outlined in this Clause.[/b][/color]
[color="#8b0000"][b]5.4 The number of Tribunes on The Tribunal of Justice shall be five (5), as listed below:[/b][/color]

[color="#8b0000"][b]5.5.1 One Champion will serve as Counsel for the Accused, the other will serve as Champion for The Order, who alone prosecutes all accused worthy Brothers and Sisters. Both sides may recommend their champion, or the Tribunal may choose its own Champions, at the determination of the Chief Tribune. [/b][/color]
[color="#8b0000"][b]5.5.2 Once selected as Champion, the member may not be removed either voluntarily or involuntarily (excepting emergencies) for any reason until the judgment of The Tribunal has been completed. Champions will not serve recourse for their service to The Tribunal of Justice, unless it be discovered that a Champion did purposely set out to alter the Justice of the Tribunal in any material, personal, or other way, including for the purposes of profit. (Tech, Infra, Donation, or monetary remuneration). These will be chargeable offenses.[/b][/color]

[color="#8b0000"][b]6.2 There is one, and only one reason we will use our military forces. If our survival is at stake, we will mobilize our vast and superior forces to defend The Rosicrucians from extinction. Raiding of any nature, upon any nation, is strictly prohibited in peacetime.[/b][/color]
[color="#8b0000"][b]6.3. To insure no mistake is made, The fully enrolled membership of Worthy Brothers and Sisters must vote (50% +1) in favor of war; The Sacred Council must vote (50% +1) for war, the Brothers of State must vote (50% +1) and the Overseers must vote unanimously in favor of Holy War. At such time as a favorable vote is secured, the Knight of The Order will ascend to a primary leadership role, becoming a fourth Overseer until such time as peace is secured, and final. [/b][/color]
[color="#8b0000"][b]6.4 All non-essential services will be carried on (if possible), including elections, trade, non-essential Internal and External programs, services and activities, or other determined functions. Every member is required, as is their ordained purpose, to offer their pixels for such time as may be required to complete the successful prosecution of Holy War. [/b][/color]
[color="#8b0000"][b]6.5 The Keeper is the final military authority during Holy War. He, with the four (4) Overseers, create the tactical and strategic plans which The Knight is then tasked to successfully carry out. Only The Keeper can officially declare Holy War for the members. Only The Keeper can officially declare Peace. The full government participates in the preparation and prosecution of the Holy War, and in the itemization and collection of any reparations declared due at the conclusion of Holy War. [/b][/color]
[color="#8b0000"][b]6.6 Reparations due us at the conclusion of any Holy War shall be permanently affixed at 150% of the total inclusive and exclusive costs of Holy War. No nation or Alliance will be forced to re-roll or disband as a condition of peace. The goal is not to receive profit from Holy War, but a return to the previous condition of our membership prior to the commencement of hostilities. We find this acceptable to us, and would expect the same from any conquering adversaries. There is, regardless of emotion or even logic, no further reasonable expectation. [/b][/color]


[b][i][size="3"][color="darkred"]Article Seven: Amendments[/color][/size][/i][/b]

[color="#8b0000"][b]7.1: Amendments to this Charter may be made with a 75% + 1 Council vote.[/b][/color]
[color="#8b0000"][b]7.2: In order to amend Article 5, a unanimous Council vote is required as well as a 72-hour public vote in which 50% + 1 of all enrolled Worthy Brothers and Sisters vote in favor. The entire alliance will be notified of this vote.[/b][/color]
[color="#8b0000"][b]7.3: Sections 7.2 and 7.3 may not be amended, edited, changed, devalued, overridden, removed, cancelled, or otherwise compromised in any way.[/b][/color]


[b][i][size="3"][color="darkred"]Article Eight: Disbandment[/color][/size][/i][/b]

[color="#8b0000"][b]8.1: In order to disband, the Keeper must cast a motion which must then be unanimously approved by the Sacred Council. [/b][/color]
[color="#8b0000"][b]8.2 A 72-hour public vote will then take place in which 75% + 1 of voting members must vote yes to disbandment. Every Worthy Brother or Sister will be notified of this vote.[/b][/color]
[color="#8b0000"][b]8.3 A vote to disband will commence a pre-approved plan that will include the immediate seeking of protectorate status until such time as very member has been released from our rolls. At that time, we will cease to exist on the planets.[/b][/color][/i][i][color="darkred"]

We've been a little busy over here in the various regions of Amazonia. If our many friends and acquaintances have wondered what I've been so distracted with lately, you're about to see. ;)

I'm pleased to have had the opportunity to work with these folks, and I and my Rosicrucian counterparts have worked hard to make sure the various details of this particular endeavor have all been handled with the utmost care and respect.

We wish one of the newest additions to our happy, learning family the best of luck, and we look forward to seeing what accomplishments are in store for them.

In the event of any unprovoked aggressive action against members of the undersigned Protectorate, the Amazon Nation shall freely offer aid and assistance first and foremost through diplomatic channels. Should all attempts at diplomacy fail, the Amazon Nation shall defend Her Protectorate to the utmost of Her abilities. However, to most effectively allow any Protectorate of the Amazon Nation continue to prosper and grow under the spirit of this Agreement, said Protectorate shall not be held in obligation to aid the Amazon Nation in the event of any aggressive action against Her.

Article IV: Cancellation

Should either signatory decide to draw an end to this Agreement for any reason, each shall be required to notify the other through private diplomatic channels. The Agreement remains binding and in full effect for 24 hours from the time notification of intent to cancel is received and acknowledged.

I'd like to first thank the Amazon Nation for giving us their support, so thanks. :P
Also, thanks for the position of Overseer of Nations; if other alliances have FA-related questions, feel free to send me a PM or find me on IRC.

With the formalities out of the way, let's get keep the ball rolling with this thing!

Fantastic; another Amazon Nation protectorate that we will likely never hear from again.

Their destiny is in their hands, after all. Maybe yes, maybe no. I haven't really heard much of you, myself, so it's great to see something constructive coming out of your neck of the woods. :ehm:


Have fun with the coffee, kids, but you'd better save at least one more cup for me. ;)

You can now say you've heard from us again. :P
In all seriousness, we certainly hope to be around a good long while. Will we? Maybe yes, maybe no. Only time will tell. Hopefully, we will be.

Thanks for the good wishes. We will need them, for sure. But we come prepared to be here a very long time. We look forward to all the help I'm sure that our amazing Protector, The Amazon Nation will provide.

We have a dedicated team of leadership that has worked, and will continue to work tirelessly to insure our success. I'm very proud of these folks, and know that we will do well.

I'm always available for help from any member with the knowledge we need to survive, learn, grow and share.

Regardless of the size of their alliance.

I'd gladly go to your forum and look around staring either at the ceiling, the walls or the floor since it's always possible to find something there, I'm sure!

However it looks that the door is a bit hard to open yet!
The "join our community" button leads to a page that says: "[i]Board does not exist. Make sure you did not mis-type the URL[/i]".

And whilst such thing actually makes a lot of sense (LOL! in a strange and funny way it does!), I also assume that it may not be your intention.
