A Montrous Evolution

Recommended Posts

Just over one year ago a small storm started to grow. Like many storms it had its ups and downs. Recently, the storm started growing bigger and stronger. It had a more stable eye and was forever changing the world. In the last few months, two crazy storm chasers, Terra Prime and New Purple Power, decided that they would attempt to find the source of its power and combine with it to form a magnificent being. Terra Prime, however, was lost during its journey into the storm. Fortunately, there was a large group of survivors who joined the natives of the storm. New Purple Power lost many hands, but eventually managed to make it into the center of the storm. When they got there, they met Tempest, the natives of the storm, and the survivors of Terra Prime. Tempest had quickly accepted the survivors of Terra Prime and were ready for New Purple Power to join them. Together they fused their knowledge and epicness to form what no man had been able to do before...

*Meanwhile on the ocean...*

A fisherman from the great alliance Valhalla was out in his boat. He was doing his usual fishing so he could pay his bills and support his family. The fisherman knew and respected the great storm that forever stood out in the ocean for the past year. As a Viking he knew to respect mother nature. Everything seemed to normal to the fisherman. He was catching his fish and the storm was dissipating as usual. "Wait", stumbled the fisherman. The storm had never dissipated like he was seeing today. The storm was literally breaking. The fisherman began to stare at the storm. He had heard of the legends of Terra Prime and New Purple Power attempting to find the power inside the storm. Had they succeeded after all this time? As the fisherman stared at the storm something big and dark began to move behind the clouds. The Valhallan fisher couldn't believe his eyes. He had only heard of what he was seeing in the legends of times past. The fisherman continued to stare in disbelief as the beast moved towards him and the greater Purple Region. The fisherman managed to gasp, "Hydra" before passing out.

*All along the luscious coast of Purple, the citizens of many nations witnessed the most impressive scene ever. A photographer managed to take a picture: *


Tempest, the survivors of Terra Prime, and New Purple Power had managed to combine themselves to form a Hydra, an ancient beast of untold power. The world stood in awe and began to cheer....

*As the noise fades away and the scene changes, Ligolski approaches the press box. He is in his best suit and looks devilishly handsome for the occasion. He had been preparing for this moment for some time. The biggest names in the cyberverse were here today and he was ready to do his best. Behind him comes a familiar group of people. They are the new government of the alliance about to be announced to the world. The news reporters and leaders would learn who they were during the press conference. *

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Cyberverse,

I am pleased to present to you today a colossal undertaking. For the past few months the team you see behind me and many others behind the scenes have worked hard to establish a new alliance.

In the doors behind me you can find our charter and our first treaty. The treaty should be of no surprise. I welcome you to step through the doors behind me now to learn more.

I want to congratulate our purple brethren on this merger.

A few weeks ago, I went back and looked at the Holy Order forums and re-read the topics where we fought over what we should name the alliance when we decided to “re-brand”. Tempest finally won in a hard fought battle replete with many references to tempests in teapots. I’d like to after all this time, thank Ligs for the great name and for fighting for it so vigorously. It’s a good name and served our membership well. Tonight, it is relegated to the history books, but it will always have a special place in the thoughts of all of her former members and friends.

Here’s to Hydra being the next step in the evolution of an alliance that had provided a home for me and many others. Just as the transition from Holy Order to Tempest was an enormous success, I sincerely hope the progress will continue and our friends will reach ever new heights.

So, for a final time Hail Tempest! and hail the other alliances coming together.

And for the first time Hail Hydra!

Tempest was great for my first alliance, it was really fun. Now to have been part of bringing a new alliance that has my old alliance in it, is truly fun and exciting. I hope we will do well in Hydra, and I hope everyone will like the new look for 3 alliances into one.

O/ Tempest




o/All My Comrades

It was 224 days ago that the nation of Barnzee was created. It has also been 224 days since Barnzee first flew the Tempest banner. Although it began as a blue nation, I was quickly shown the love and camaraderie that is ever-present in the purple sphere. Thus, Barnzee made the move to Purple.

I am saddened to see the Tempest dissipating. It is the only alliance I have known, but the friends I made in Tempest will be friends for the duration of my stay in the cyberverse. I learned a lot about the game and its mechanics during my stay with Tempest. I have shouldered the burdens of being a member of government, and gladly so.

Tempest was the creation of the friends I've made and something that I was born into. Hydra is the creation of even more of my friends and something that I am proud to say that I have contributed to. I have high hopes for this new home of mine. The creation of Hydra would not have been possible if it weren't for the support of our allies and the heaps of effort put forth by Tempest, Terra Prime and New Purple Power leadership, so I sincerely would like to thank all who have contributed.

Long live the mighty Hydra, her devout followers and the friendship that she inspires!

Congrats on the merge guys B)

I've known of Tempest since day one of my existence on CN (In fact I believe one of you tried to steal me for yourselves :P ) and I am very sad to see Tempest's name consigned to the history books, they have been great friends. I never really got to know anyone from TP and NPP but hope to get to know you in the next few days. weeks and months :)

But it I am also very glad to see this merge go ahead and wish you all the best for the coming months! :D

When Terra Prime began its untimely descent into oblivion I was depressed, even the big war did not provide enough distraction from the looming chaos that TP was headed towards.

With quite a lot of behind the scenes work by Ligolski, Dera, Septer, Jacapo Saladin, Hulk, Manchesterunitedgod, FrozenFlame and many many more people in Tempest and Terra Prime I began to have hope that while Terra Prime would not continue her ideals would be carried forward in this new alliance.

So I am reinvigorated and giddy with all that Hydra will bring to the Planet, the Purple sphere and Pegasus in the coming weeks and months.

Many thanks to the hard working and hard playing crew at Tempest that have ensured that Terra Prime's dream lives on in Hydra.
