Official Umbrella Announcement


Recommended Posts



BE IT KNOWN, that as of a.d. XII Kal. Maius, ano MMIX, the alliance Umbrella has fundamentally altered her doctrine regarding foreign alliances.

The great rule of conduct for us, in regard to foreign nations, is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible. The collective alliances have a set of primary interests, which to us have none, or a very remote relation. Hence she must be engaged in frequent controversies the causes of which are essentially foreign to our concerns. Hence, therefore, it must be unwise in us to implicate ourselves, by artificial ties, in the ordinary vicissitudes of her politics, or the ordinary combinations and collisions of her friendships or enmities.
QUOTH the prophet MaoKhan

And the prodigal son, Sceptor, spoke with agreement:

"Every nation has its war party. It is not the party of democracy. It is the party of autocracy. It seeks to dominate absolutely. It is commercial, imperialistic, ruthless. It tolerates no opposition. It is just as arrogant, just as despotic, in Paradoxia, or in Umbrella, as in Pacifica. The Umbrellian Jingo is twin to the Johan Junker.... If there is no sufficient reason for war, the war party will make war on one pretext, then invent another."

The great engineer Domisi then looked to the Umbrella and ruminated, reminding us of its many interdependent parts. Its simple perfection and indelible strength. It is clear that the Umbrella can only be weakened by reducing its reach, an impossibility, or by increasing one's expectations, a dangerous path.


We have been reminded by elder Bossk, "Deep doubts, deep wisdom; small doubts, little wisdom." And so, as it stands, Umbrella has no choice, but to amend the Opsmobile accords under agreement with the esteemed Mushroom Kingdom to include the following clause:

If one party finds itself as an instigator in a conflict, the other party may join in if they feel the cause is valid, and the conduct just. Otherwise they may refuse services.
