Announcement from the Blackstone Collusion

The Blackstone Collusion is an excellent example of a "cause and effect" relationship. We were once a dream that many players in the cyberverse shared for years. Today, we are a reality. Traditional methods of securing the freedoms once present here only served to strengthen those that have removed it. It was only a matter of time before the community would witness an evolution in the way this game is played. We are that evolution.

As we lurk in the shadows, we have two nations that maintain an in-game presence. Founded on 05 January 2009, our old board received over 200 registered accounts in the course of 14 days. In that time, our inaugural video received over 2,000 views. If you don't know who we are by now, you're out of style, and we encourage you to learn more.

Valentine's Day left us love-struck. Successfully sniped by Cupid, we looked over, and we saw Vox standing there, smiling at us. We already had a crush on them, but it was their eloquent speech that caused us to fall head-over-heels. It comes as no surprise that we have signed the Fashionably Late Compact, without hesitation.

The Fashionably Late Compact

Preamble

To further Peace and Good Relations, Vox Populi (Vox) and undersigned alliances agree to the following Terms:

Article I: Scope of the Agreement

1. In the signing of this pact, it must be clear that all signatories remain sovereign, as do the members in each alliance.

2. This treaty shall function as though it were individual treaties between Vox and each of the undersigned.

3. In the event that any signatory enters into a state of war with a third party, the other signatories are not obligated to participate for either side.

Article II: Prohibition of War

1. No member nation of any of the undersigned shall declare war on any member nation of Vox.

2. No member nation of Vox shall declare war on any member nation of any of the undersigned.

3. Should a member nation of one party attack a member nation of the other party, the leaders of the attacking nation's alliance must issue a statement that the attacker acted without the consent of their alliance, within 36 hours of notice being sent to the leadership of the attacking nation's alliance.

4. The receiving alliance must acknowledge receipt of the message within 24 hours, even if discussions regarding the attack have not completed.

5. Both before and during the 36 hour notification period, as described in Article II, Section 3, the attacked nation shall not engage in retaliatory attacks against the attacking nation.

6. The attacking nation's alliance is responsible for war reparations at least equal to the losses suffered by the attacked nation, less any losses suffered on the part of the attacking nation should the attacked nation fail to comply with Article II, Section 5.

7. If the reparations determined by Article II, Section 6 are negative due to the attacked nation retaliating for more damage than the attacking nation did, the alliance of the attacked nation must pay reps to the alliance of the attacking equal to the negative amount.

Article III: Restrictions on Aid

4. For the purposes of this agreement, reparations paid in pursuit of peace shall not be defined as aid.

5. For the purposes of this agreement, should a member nation of either party provide aid to an enemy of the other party, this shall be considered an attack on the other party, and all the rules laid out in Article II shall apply, with the required war reparations being at least equal to the amount used in the aid attack.

Article IV: Spying

1. Vox will not actively or incidentally spy on any of the undersigned.

2. The undersigned will not actively or incidentally spy on Vox.

3. If either party receives information related to the other party that may have been obtained through means of subterfuge, that party must inform the other party within 24 hours and turn over the information they have received.

5. For the purposes of this agreement, spying is defined as, Discovering information, be it through active spying or passive listening, that has not been publicly divulged by either party.

Article V: Cancellation of Treaty

1. This treaty may be canceled, for any reason, and at any time, by the Vox Senate.

2. Any of the undersigned may remove its signature from this treaty at any time for any reason, by the method of decision making of that undersigned party.

3. Notification of cancellation by Vox must be sent to the leadership of all Signatories within 36 hours, and for this purpose the rules laid out in Article II, Section 4 shall apply.

4. Notification of removal of a signature by any of the undersigned must be sent to the Vox Senate within 36 hours, and the rules laid out in Article II, Section 4 shall apply.

5. Should this treaty be canceled by Vox, or any of the undersigned remove its signature, following acknowledgment of the cancellation/removal, a 72 hour grace period will take effect, during which neither Vox nor any affected Signatories will declare war on, spy on, or aid enemies of the other party.

Article VI: Treaty amendments.

Indeed. While some others might not have felt any love this Valentine's Day, we shouldn't hold it against them. I do caution everyone to refrain from saying something they might regret later, however. We will be using historical data as propaganda.

Zeta - You and LoD should talk to each other. I think he might have some questions for you.

Oh goody. More clueless hate groups. [OOC:] If CN received a new feature each time one of these miserable groups popped up, CN would be the most developed game on the internet [/OOC]

Ohh goody more lackey talk... Boris do us all a favor and shut your PC off, these guys have been the first breath of fresh air I've seen in months, if they even accomplish 1/4 of of there in-game goals it will be 100 percent more than you have ever accomplished, then again keeping yourself and Fear out of the line of fire could be construed as an accomplishment, Kudos to you for being a sheep in sheep's clothing.

One more thing, this comment is directed at you by me, no one else, so if you gota gripe take it up with me.
