One sunny day in May… actually, oh... wait... crap. That’s not when that happened, actually. Some time, long, long ago, three ancient members of the Cybernations community came together and started planning. They weren’t sure what they were planning. They weren’t sure if it was going to ‘take off’. They weren’t sure about anything really. Regardless, they planned…

… And planned …

… And planned …

They planned an alliance that would rise above the rest. They planned an alliance that wouldn’t just request, but demand activity of its members. They planned a community in which every member of the community had a part in the alliance; a community in which each of the members had great loyalty, great camaraderie with each other. So, this community was formed. Its name, Nemesis, was simple, yet strong.

For reference:

nem⋅e⋅sis [nem-uh-sis]

–noun, plural -ses

1. something that a person cannot conquer, achieve, etc.:

2. an opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome.

The Triumvirate grew in their trust of each other, eventually setting up a place to call their home. We now announce our existence to Planet Bob, and look forward to the coming weeks, months, and years.

Thank you.

Tl;dr:

Bob, Hoo, and ‘Bum got bored with Cybernations. Bob, Hoo, and ‘Bum decided to form an alliance. Bob, Hoo, and ‘Bum created Nemesis. Bob, Hoo, and ‘Bum are going to have fun now. We are RoK, GR, and ODN 2.0. KThxBye.

P.S. Two quick thank yous to Yates and Franklin of the Orange Defense Network, who both helped and continue to help in the skinning and user bars for our forums. <3
