Ignore the blood and please come for a stay on our nice boat. If you would like to apply or just chat then head on over to http://niceboatalliance.net or join #nba on coldfront. We look forward to sailing out into the seas with you. For the time being our boat will be sailing alongside the watchful eye of the Cactuvian Party Boats of the Random Insanity Alliance.

[b]Preamble:[/b]

Welcome, welcome.

Ladies, gentleman and traps, this is your captain speaking. The weather's great, not a single cloud in sight, and we're making great progress on our nautical journey. Right now, we're not really sure where we'll be heading, but we just left port anyway. In the meantime, do pop by our bar, and try out our new cocktail. Just don’t call the blonde guy in the bartender outfit, “bartender”. He hates it, and he’ll hit you with a vending machine.

You have been warned.

[u][b]Article 1: The Nice Boat’s Crew[/b][/u]

The Nice Boat shall be led by the Key Master, who shall command the ship entirely. They shall be assisted by 4 other members, the Bridge Crew, who will be appointed by the Key Master themselves from the members of the Nice Boat Alliance (henceforth referred to as Crew Members).

[b]Clause 1: The Key Master[/b]

The Key Master shall lead the Nice Boat, exercising the final say in all nautical activities and decisions with the assistance of the Bridge Crew until retirement or impeachment.

[b]Clause 2: The Bridge Crew[/b]

Upon assuming the role of Key Master, the elected is required to fill the Bridge Crew from the Crew Members. The five shall have the final decisions and say in all alliance issues, and serve as the executive governing body of the Boat. The Bridge Crew shall consist of the following:
1) The Six Million Dollar Girl (SMG), whose duty is to coordinate the military aspects of the Boat, and to attend to any and all offensive and defensive actions of the Boat, like destroying pirates, attacking unfriendly ships, and protecting the Nice Boat from attacks.
2) The Head of Foreign Affairs (HoFA), whose duty is to manage the Nice Boat’s Foreign Affairs, including but not limited to the management of diplomatic issues, negotiation of treaties, and rapid response to any needs of a diplomatic issue.

All Bridge Crew can be forcibly evicted from the Bridge of the Nice Boat if the Key Master thinks they suck. Because, really, our anchor's chain is as strong as the weakest link.

[b]Clause 3: You Are (Not) Alone[/b]

The Bridge Crew of the Nice Boat are allowed to appoint a maximum of 2 Personal Assistants at their discretion to assist in their duties. Personal Assistants are not to be granted access to any information that is restricted to Bridge Crew and above, unless exempted by the Key Master. The Personal Assistants are listed below:

Made me giggle... Also reminded me of the time I got a fishing hook stuck in the back of my grandpa's head as little kid... Looking forward to seeing you keep life interesting (because let's face it, who wants to do great things if they're boring... Better to keep life fun, right?)

Beats SOS, I guess.

Also, how wants to bet that Arrnea tries to take over what remains of SOS Brigade and makes another gaffe for himself?

I'd bet that he won't do it, but what are you even betting for?

[quote name='Horo the Wise Wolf' timestamp='1321565989' post='2846024']
Taking bets on this being a joke thread.

I'm not making bets on that, but I really hope it is one.
