Hello there, my name is Ro. I am from the Order of Feudalistic Security, and if I may have a minute of your time, I'd like to offer you a spot in OFS and tell you about all the benefits of joining. OFS is a small, cozy alliance looking for active members who like to have fun. We are a peaceful alliance that is currently neutral in global affairs. We can offer you military protection, as well as financial aid to help your country grow. We also have several experienced members that can help give you a better idea of the game whether you're new to CN or have been playing for awhile. I encourage you to visit our forums to learn more about us:

If you have any questions, either now or later, feel free to contact me, even if you decide not to join OFS.

--Queen Aurora the Benevolent, OFS

P.S. Did I mention all new members get $1 million for joining?
