FEAR Announcement

Recommended Posts


Greetings, Cyberverse. Before getting drunk and blowing up mailboxes tonight, we have a couple of small announcements to make.

FEAR voiced support for TDO during the recent NSO-TDO debacle. During this, FEAR discovered old friends in The Democratic Order, and a new respect for TDO. As such, we have discussed and signed TDO's Declaration of Global Neutrality.


The Democratic Order's Declaration of Global Neutrality

The Democratic Order (TDO), by principles originating from the birth of the alliance, declares itself to be universally neutral, and peaceful. TDO will never launch an aggressive war without proper cause. As such, TDO is committed to pursuing non-aggressive relationships towards all nations and alliances throughout CyberNations.

The Democratic Order interprets neutrality as:

1 - non-alignment with any foreign alliance, bloc, sphere, ideology or non-member nation

2 - non-involvement in any and all foreign disputes between alliances, spheres, ideologies or non-member nations

TDO values diplomacy above all and will always attempt diplomatic resolution to incidents involving other nations, aligned or not. TDO reserves the right to decide when such diplomatic avenues have failed.

This public declaration binds TDO to its neutral, peaceful stance and serves as notice to all its member nations that they must avoid any and all deeds that might contravene this agreement and thereby violate TDO's neutrality.

To this end, we commit that any TDO member nation that engages in the initiation of a hostile act against any other nation or alliance will be liable to immediate punishment by TDO. This Declaration places no upper limit on the nature or extent of such punishment, nor shall it in any way limit other formal proceedings being taken against the offending member.

By making public this Declaration and annexed Pact, TDO seeks to gain global support for its neutrality, to prevent aggression being brought upon, or by, TDO members and TDO as a whole. We invite other alliances to Assent to this Declaration and Pact.

We, the undersigned alliances, agree to recognise the neutrality of TDO and to the following terms:

Pssst.... Quinoa Rex hasn't been in TORN for about a month and change.

I personally don't really know Quinoa Rex, but she was suggested by both Schmutte and Clash. Whatever alliance she is in now, she was in TORN when she served as our diplomat. :P

FEAR is the best bunch of people you could meet. Friendly, active and a bit insane. Also steadfast allies through thick and thin. I have enjoyed knowing this group and will continue to enjoy the friendship that they have to offer.

Thank you for this honor. :wub:
