[center]Friends, Moffs, Romans, Sithlords, Countrymen, Lurkers, Haters, and Nations of CN: Lend me your attention span.

The Shadow Accord is over one year old. But our history goes much, much further back. We are the remnants of alliances long since past from CN, and it saddens me that I must label this as our final announcement.

The Shadow Accord is a re-branded form of The Shadow Confederacy Empire.[/center]

Many of our closest friends have known us since then, and those with old enough to remember, but young enough to retain memories know that TSCE was a remnant of The Shadow Confederacy (TSC). The Shadow Confederacy found its roots in CIS (Imperial) which had its roots in the 1rst CIS (Independent). And depending on who you ask... CIN was thrown around in there somewhere. (This is what happens when typos make there way into text books.)

Why am I giving you a history lesson? Those who remember the controversy surrounding CIS, and who understand the and remember the days of the Black Conclave, Dark Vows, and BPI... Those who know the name Sharduke... they know our legacy. They know where we come from, and what blood flows through our veins.

Our history is a murky one, but we know our roots, and we know our cause. We have all been brought into TSA, and brought up knowing the importance of peace, the importance of freedom, and the importance of fighting against tyranny. Let this be our Legacy. Remember us by these values.

TSA has always had a focus on Color Politics, which for better or worse, has diminished for now. It has been a rough ride for us, we have lost founders, we have lost Sharduke, we have lost government members, and many have lost their hope.

Therefore, our senate has unanimously approved, with not a single dissenting vote from membership, a merge. As of this announcement, the members of TSA will be merging with one of our closest allies: Apparatus. It seems we cant shake these guys. Whether its The Shadow Accord and Apparatus, or The Shadow Confederacy and Amazon Nation, we have always been close to Randalla and her friends and allies, and we are happy to combine resources, merits, and strength with her.

We are happy to also remain close to PPO, and OBR in the process, who have long since been dear friends of ours. We also say goodbye to too many allies and friends to mention... but you know who you are... and you know how we feel, here in the open, or deep in the shadows.

There are many reasons we have chosen to merge with Apparatus... do not think that we merely are giving into inactivity... this is not the case. The reasons are wide and many, but will be kept our own.

The future is always clouded in mystery... leading to possibilities more confusing than the treaty web at times. But know this. Wherever we, the last members of The Shadow Accord, find our home... wherever we set our hat... we will always hold true to our values... we will always look to the heroes of our past as a guide for the future. EGreivous. Outsiders. Sharduke. Zocane. KasMage. These were great nations. Great People.

So let it be heard: Today, we draw a line of our own, as we merge into Apparatus. But do not forget us. We will never forget our friends and allies, and we will never forget our enemies.

The Shadow Accord AA will be protected by Apparatus until every member has left. The Shadow Accord AA is eternally retained by its founders and current members.

The Shadow Accord will also be indefinitely protected by our beloved friends in Arizona. We would like to extend a special thank you to Yuurei and everything he has done for us, as well as all our other friends in Arizona.

Both alliances will be posting to confirm these claims.

Also, our forums will be monitored for the upcoming week for any diplomats, allies, friends, foreign dignitaries, etc who would like to stop by one more time and say good bye.

It is always sad to see a friendly alliance close it's doors, and even more so to lose a close and trusted ally.

TSA has meant a lot to Terran Empire ever since we first met, and we shall miss them as they disappear into the annals of CN history.

I'm sure I will find myself checking on our embassy at TSA out of habit.

We wish them all the best as they begin their new chapter as a part of The Apparatus.

[b]The Terran Empire and all of Arizona will be continuing to protect The Shadow Accord AA indefinitely.[/b]

Go well my friends...

We salute you.

If it is in need of being official, I'm sure Rand or Ernie can give it, but as Emissary of The Apparatus, this declaration is deemed as valid, true, and accurate.

Welcome to the Machine, TSA.

This saddens me. TSC, TSCE and TSA were great allies. I am glad you have found a good home, Rand is the best.

Bittersweet is a good way to describe it. We are all excited to have this privilege, to welcome our LONG-time friends and allies under one roof, joining the handful of alliances that came together several months ago to form The Apparatus. Indeed, from our AzN/TSC days way back when, they just haven't been able to get rid of us. ;)

Fashionably late is fashionable! Welcome aboard, dear friends. :wub:

Very sorry to see the end of TSA, but there's nothing bad about joining up with a trusted group of friends. Many of us could benefit from such a move; only ego holds us back. Don't be strangers now.

As a founder of the original alliance, I'm extremely sad to see this happen. Glad to know you'll be over at Randy's though.

Also you're history is pretty wrong. :P
