The alliance of Forte sees great things in the future. The alliance of Forte stands for Strength, Unity, and Force just like a musical band. The alliance of Forte waited a little more than 3 weeks to produce this DoE in order to impress the rest of planet bob, (and because DrummerMike forgot to write one). Unfortunetly you people on planet bob cant be impressed... at all. Forte hopes to interact with many of you in whatever way possible except war.

The alliance of forte can be located on IRC Coldfront at #forte.

Article VI - War

Section 1 – First
Diplomacy is and always should be the first, second, and third lines of conflict resolution between two alliances. Once this has been exhausted, the fourth line of conflict resolution must be employed, for diplomacy is worth little if the will to defend oneself and one's allies is not present.

Section 2 – Action for War

Sub-Section i
An independent offensive declaration of war shall be called for when the alliance feels that another entity has infringed upon it in a way which can only be resolved through application of force. Such a declaration shall require a unanimous governmental vote as well as three-fourths majority tonicular vote lasting for a period of forty-eight hours.
Sub-Section ii
An optional treatied declaration of war shall be called for when an ally with whom the alliance has a non-binding military treaty requests assistance.

Congrats on joining the CN world. o/ loud things.

I'm also surprised to see some drum corps buffs on here. You need to swing by Symphony so we can talk about this season... It's shaping up to be the best I've seen in about six years.
