As night falls, we rise to power

Recommended Posts


Long has it been theorized that there exists an invisible material

swirling through the atmosphere that contains the thoughtforms of

every living and unliving creation. It is here cthulhu, Nosferatu,

Orion and more come alive. It is through the collective mind frame of

every living being that fantasy becomes reality. It is through this

medium that Gods are created. It is through the dark ether we can

usurp the majesty of the heavens; the light of the brightest star, the

power of the most massive supernova, the sheer crushing void of the

black hole.

This dark ether, the invisible field that surrounds us gain power

through the darkness of night. When night falls across the world,

minds begin to drift into themselves, taking us to worlds that exist

only to us. Here our greatest dreams come true, we become kings,

heroes, destroyers. We have everything in the universe at our command.

But these thoughts exist only inside our minds, and therefore lose

any tangible meaning upon awakening. It is during this mass exodus to

dream that the dark ether, the very power of the cosmos is within our

grasp. All we must do is stream our consciousness into that of the

universe, through the medium of the ever present dark matter. With

most of the world being trapped within their minds, the roads of

communication are open only to us, the ones who revel in darkness. We

create that which we want, and we call upon the power of everlasting

night to give us her strength, for without the heavenly mother, we

will cease to exist.

This is the reason for uniting, you and I. By pooling our thoughts

through the dark ether, by remaining unified in our singular goals and

sending them off to her majesty, we receive her strength, wisdom and

destructive power; the same power that is harness by all of the

infinite constellations above! As we stand amidst the stars and chant

her incantation, we receive the strength she passed on to Orion. We

receive the willpower passed onto Scorpio. We revel in the beauty she

gave unto the Seven Sisters. The combined power of night flows

through our veins, turning our blood into ash, our soul into utter

darkness and our nerves to steel. It is with this unending power we rise to rule.

The thousand year hidden kingdom hereby declares it's existence to the world.


Vires Noctu


Born out of darkness, cast out amongst the star cluttered sky and bathed in the blood of brotherhood, we the sovereign nations of Vires Noctu (VN) coalesce to unveil the sacred parchment on which the holy charter is written. It is by these words we live, by this code of unity, strength and diplomacy we thrive.

Article I: Entrance into Vires Noctu

Any nation interested is granted permission to apply for acceptance into Vires Noctu, however this does not necessarily grant all nations entrance into the alliance. Conditions to be met for membership are as follows:

A) Recruit shall post a new topic that includes their nation name, ruler name, previous alliance (if applicable), and whether they are on any ZI lists.

Recruit shall not be in any wars, nor a member of any ZI/PZI/EZI lists. However if you are, and your crime is not terribly severe, Vires Noctu will lend our voice on your behalf to remove you from said alliance's bad graces. More on ZI lists will be discussed later.

C) All members gaining entrance into Vires Noctu are required to sell tech. VN recognizes it to be a fast way to grow in size and therefore requires it for the betterment of the alliance.

D) Member shall complete the Vires Noctu oath upon completion of probationary period. oath is as follows:

"I (ruler name here) of (nation name here) do hereby pledge to uphold the charter of Vires Noctu and the laws contained within. I will recognize the necessity of differing opinion, but with always treat my brothers and foreign rulers with respect. So it shall be written."

E) In order to promote strength and unity within The Brotherhood of Vires Noctu the below mandates are hereby set forth and will be enforced.

All nations under 2,999 infra will sell technology to larger nations within The Brotherhood. Selling tech is not only beneficial to the smaller nations but also to Vires Noctu.

All nations above 3,000 infra will maintain a tech level which is equal to or greater then 25% of their infrastructure. So for example: Nations infra is 6,000 their tech level must be maintained at a minimum of 1,500.

F) Probationary period consists of the time it takes for you to apply and complete any questions presented by current members. This period will last no longer than three days.

G) Any member may resign from VN providing he has not accepted official aid in the past thirty days, and posts a resignation thread in the appropriate forum.

Article II: Hierarchy of the Night

Section I: The Dark Council

The Dark Council shall be comprised of three members in good standing with the interest of the brotherhood at heart. Collectively The Dark Council will be the acting authority within VN, and will be given the power to appoint the members of the Dread Ministry. These appointments shall be nominated by the Council member presiding over that area, and agreed on with a 2/3 majority vote. The Dark Council shall decide all matters of foreign and domestic policy, war and peace declarations with the advisement of the Dread Ministry. The Dark Council shall be comprised of:

The Eye of Midnight:

Shall be the driving force behind the external affairs of VN. The Eye is the head of diplomacy and chief negotiator during war times and peace. The Eye retains power over the diplomatic branches of VN and has the power to appoint The Dread Minister of Enchantment and The Dread Minister of Indoctrination. The Eye is also one of the voting members of the Hierarchy of Night.

The Soul of Midnight:

Shall be the proverbial linchpin of all internal workings. The Soul is the head of internal affairs, including but not limited to establishing trades, tech deals and other economic dealings, along with moving along the contests and festivals celebrating the Darkest Night. The Soul is charged with appointing The Dread Minister of the Nocturian Bank along with The Dread Minister of Internal Design. The Soul represents the second of the voting members of the Hierarchy of Night.

The Wrath of Midnight:

Shall be the fire and brimstone controlling the forces that make up the Celestial Horde. The Wrath is charged with appointing the Dread Minister of War, along with having final word over the commanders of each Horde. He shall over see military projects and shall be the the last of the voting members of The Hierarchy of Night.

Section II: The Dread Ministry

The Dread Ministry shall be comprised of five offices specializing in one of the many facets of VN. These positions shall be filled by a two- thirds majority vote amongst the Dark Council. Their positions are valuable as they provide advise to The Dark Council on all alliance matters. The members of the Dread Ministry may appoint Junior Dread Ministers to aid in their tasks. The Ministry shall be able to over rule any decision made by the Dark Council, excluding war declarations and treaty signings, if they attain a 4 of 5 majority. This is to provide checks and balances amongst the brotherhood and to promote unity in us all.

Dread Minister of Enchantment:

The second in command of the FA workings of VN. Works together with The Eye to put VN in the best position. Handles diplomatic appointments and may remove diplomats at any time. Ensures activity amongst diplomats and may act as The Eye if The Eye is absent in the case of an emergency decision. This shows the trust that resides amongst our brotherhood.

Dread Minister of Internal Design:

Works with The Soul to create and maintain forums and internal workings of Vires Noctu. He is charged with the masking of members of all forms on the forums and is responsible for keeping them in working order.

Dread Minister of War:

Works with The Wrath in preparing the Celestial Hordes for battle. Is second in command of the Horde and will work to increase the Hordes knowledge of military affairs. Will ready the forces if needed, and will reward those who work to ever increase the strength of their nation. Will appoint a cabinet to assist in these goals. The DMoW can act in the place of The Wrath if The Wrath is absent in the case of emergency. So is the trust we place in each other.

Dread Minister of the Nocturian Bank:

Works with The Soul to create financial programs, trade programs, tech programs and anything economic in VN. This member may act in the place of The Soul in the event of absence during emergency. Our bonds are never broken.

Any member shall also retain the right to petition any other change so long as it is supported by three of their brothers. At this time, it will be brought before the masses to a vote. A vote gaining 2/3 majority shall be passed.

Article III: War, Nuclear usage and Raiding
