This is TE, no body cares.

Please stop spamming OWF

there is just as much a sense of ownership in TE when starting an alliance as there is in SE, so show some respect.

it isn't always cool to fill the forums with senseless trolling. it just makes you look like an attention-deprived teen.

Hellas Alliance was created to remain ... For this and next rounds ... With many or even with one member ...

As for SE I belong in an Alliance ...

For TE this is my baby and I want to work to make it grow and prosper ...

There was not any purpose of spam but I confess our Alliance would welcome new members; but only those who are ready to die, as our motto is: FIGHT WITH GRACE and DIE WITH DIGNITY !! ...

In the event that the Imperator dies, or becomes otherwise incapacitated,

I found this particular part entertaining. Good job, though. Nice to see a lot of dedication to TE, although it will end and you'll just have to repost :P
