Greetings,

I am President Millhouse of the First United Council, and I am here to try and pursuade you to join our alliance. I have posted our constitution to show you what the rules are at FUC so that you know what you would be held to if you joined our alliance.

The First United Council is a very close knit community full of both experienced and new players that are willing to help each other, and the alliance, achieve the goals that they set for themselves. Most alliances offer protection and financial aid, but we also add the friendship and value in new members that other alliances may not. We are here to help each other, and no member is ever considered to be just a member. Just look at the second constitutional amendment giving every member the chance to make their ideas and voiced heard in our General Assembly. This is a rare opportunity that would be hard to find in other alliances.

If you do decide to join the First United Council, all you have to do is sign up on our forums at http://z15.invisionfree.com/FDC. After you sign up, you will receive a $500,000 sign-up bonus with more aid to follow.

Once again, if you are looking for a close knit alliance that bases its actions on what is best for all members of the alliance and not just the most powerful, then look no further than the First United Council.

President Millhouse

P.S. FUC is now a protectorate of the Order of Feudalistic Security!
