Konichiwa, Again


Recommended Posts


A little over 2 years ago, an alliance known as Ronin rose from the efforts of a few retired NAAC members and a retired LoSS member. It was to be a place where past grudges were set aside and we would all work to better ourselves and the alliance. We made great friends with alliances known as The Order of the Black Rose, Old Guard, Commonwealth of Independent Nations, Gremlins and others. Great War 3 marked the end of Ronin with all the Shogun dispersing through out time and the cyberverse.

It is with great pleasure today that I reincarnate Ronin. An alliance I have always held near and dear to my heart. I know the odds of success for any new alliance is slim but this is something I feel I need to do. If I fail, so be it, I will hold no regrets. But I intend on making Ronin a success story in a sea of failures.

The Charter of Ronin


We, the undersigned nations, agree to surrender a measure of our individual sovereignty to gain glory, mutual protection, national growth and most importantly shared fellowship and therefore do hereby ordain this Charter of Ronin.

    * All members have a right to freedom of speech.*
    * All members have a right to be secure from aggression.
    * All members have a right to grow their own nations and to share in the prosperity of Ronin.
    * All members shall have a right to vote in elections, on changes to this Charter, on treaties of aggression and on war.
    2. All members of Ronin shall have the following responsibilities:
    * All members shall abide by the tenets of the Bushido Code at all times.
    * All members shall respect their fellow members.
    * All members must be consistently active within the alliance and must make themselves available by some form of instant messaging utility (AIM, IRC, ICQ, Google Talk, MSN Messenger ) in addition to forum activity.[/li]

*This right shall be limited in two instances. First, from time to time, by vote of the Imperial Council, this right may be curtailed on the Cybernations Official Forums due to foreign policy objectives. Second, flaming will not be tolerated as a legitimate form of speech.

Article 3: The Imperial Council of Ronin

1. Ronin shall be governed by a council consisting of five members. 1 of the council members shall be the Shogun (Warlord). Two of the members shall be appointed by the Shogun. The two remaining members shall be elected. These non-Shogun members shall be called Daimyo

2. The Council shall be denied the following powers:

* The power to amend the Charter of Ronin.

* The power to appoint new Shogun.

3. Military and Finance shall be the appointed position. Interior and Foreign Affairs shall be elected.

4. Shogun Emeritus shall be a position that is open to any original founding member of Ronin who wishes to join the alliance at a

future date. Upon joining the alliance they will assume shared responsibilities with the other Shogun. The list of Shogun Emeritus consists of the following nation rulers. Trace, sharpeshoote and Planefinder.

5. The Shogun is the head of the council and can act as the sole voice of the council when necessary


Article 4: Approval of Treaties and Declarations of War

1. Treaties must be approved by a majority vote of the Imperial Council.

2. Treaties binding Ronin to obligatory aggression must be approved by the general membership of Ronin. These types of treaties will be placed before the general membership for a period of 1 day (24 hours) and treaties will be considered passed if they have a vote of 50% +1 of the voting members.

3. To withdraw from a treaty, a majority vote of the Council is required.

4. Declarations of aggressive war must be approved by a majority of the Imperial Council..

5. Due to the necessity of speedy response an Imperial Council member may approve immediate military action in regards to imminent and unavoidable threats to the alliance.

Article 5: Amendments to the Charter

1. The Shogun is the responsible body for amending the Charter of Ronin.

2. Charter amendments maybe submitted by any full member of Ronin.

3. All Charter amendments, once drafted, must be approved by a majority vote of the Council.

4. Once approved by a majority of the Council, all amendments must then be put before a vote of the general membership of Ronin. The vote will last for two days and to pass, an amendment must garner 50%+1 vote of the voting members.

Article 6:Tech/Land Raiding

1. Members of Ronin are not encouraged to raid but government does understand that it helps bolster alliance activity and will allow it

as such. But with restrictions.

2. No members may attack anyone who is in an alliance of more than 4 members.

3. No member may crawl back !@#$%*ing after they raid someone and then get their $@! kicked by the raidee's buddies.

4. All members wishing to raid must gain a permit to raid from the Council member who is appointed Daiymo of Defence.

Article 7: Random Crap

1. This charter will go into effect once Ronin has achieved 25 members. All original members of government will be appointed by the Shogun and remain in position until the goal of 25 members is achieved. This charter is subject to change at any time. Ultimately the responsibility to do the right thing for the alliance comes down to the Shogun. Ego's should be put aside for the benefit of Ronin, at any point this becomes an issue it is up to the membership to bring the leadership back down to earth.

2. At no point will Ronin take up arms against the Independent Oceanic Alliance and will support her brothers and sisters in Oceana whenever possible. Should any entity attempt to break this bond, may Spalsh Woman have mercy on thier soul because we shall not.

3. Anyone wearing a ninja avatar will be tarred and feathered in public. Ninja are the ideological enemies of the samurai.

4. There is no set color for Ronin, all are welcomed to join. But Blue and Aqua are the preferred colors.

5. This charter maybe be revised by the Shogun at any point before the membership requirement is met.

Signed in Blood,

AirMe, First Shogun of Ronin

The "AirMe is such a newb that he needs twice the Protection" Treaty

A Joint Genesis - Mushroom Kingdom Protectorate of Ronin

Article I: Non Aggression

No signatory alliance will participate in acts which can reasonably be considered aggressive or hostile against the other. Violations of this article will be handled jointly through the signatory governments, by their chartered processes.

Article II: Economics

Both alliances recognize the power of economics. As such, Ronin will give preferential treatment to Genesis and MK in regards to the exchange of technology for money. Genesis and MK will provide Ronin with financial assistance as necessary and beneficial to both parties.

Article III: Assistance

A. Genesis and MK will defend Ronin from unwarranted acts of aggression. Genesis and MK will provide support in whatever form is most readily available, be it military, financial, diplomatic, or any other means. Ronin has the option to assist Genesis and/or MK if asked, but such assistance is strictly voluntary.

B. Should Ronin provoke hostilities upon themselves, Genesis and MK will jointly work with the aggrieved parties to resolve any situation, but military assistance in such a case is not automatically granted.

Article IV: Advisor

In an effort to help improve the stability and security of the Protectorate, Genesis and MK are well within their rights to appoint a member each to act as an Advisor to them. While the Advisor will have unfettered access within the protectorate, and a veto power over any treaty, merger offers, or acts of aggressive warfare, it's primary goal is to serve as a general counsel to the leadership of the protectorate.

Article V: Intelligence

Both alliances agree that information gained with the potential to affect either alliance will be shared promptly and privately.

Article VI: Senate

A: Ronin agrees to endeavor to have any blue team nations in their alliance to vote for the Senate candidate being supported by Genesis.

B: Ronin agrees to endeavor to have any aqua team nations in their alliance to vote for the Senate candidate being supported by the Mushroom Kingdom.

Article VII: Amendments

This treaty will be reviewed 60 days from the date of publication. At this time, the leadership of all three alliances shall convene to discuss whether to keep this treaty in its current form, amend it, otherwise alter it, or terminate it.

Article VIII: Termination

Any of the signatory alliances may terminate this treaty at any time. Once the private notification is given, all articles will be in effect for 5 days.
