Introduction of Carthage


Recommended Posts

When I came back to Cyber Nations I had a couple of ideas in terms of new alliances. The two that really stuck, for me, was both Soldier and Carthage. If I leave CN, if I ever do, I want to expend every last idea and thought into it so I can leave in peace. Starting from Plan A with Soldier to Plan Z with Carthage. (Don't ask about the other letters I didn't count them.)

I'd like to thank all those who encouraged me to take up this endeavor. For Zenith and TFD and the rest of the Peace and Love Train for protecting me. For TPF for encouraging me and the rest of my friends who've supported me, thank you. I'd especially like to thank Fireguy for his continued help regarding my forums. You're a great friend and your help will not go unrewarded.

And no, this is not a declaration of war on all Roman themed alliances. :P

So, without anymore time to waste I bring to you the


"Last night, the crying of the children kept me awake and I had a terrible vision. I saw the fall of our city. Breached bones under a harsh sun, Carthage- gone! Why would Baal send such a vision? He is not cruel, he has watched over us. We have had victories aplenty in war. Our merchants sail to all corners of the world. And yet now, I fear, I cannot help it. We are the envy of lesser people, they tell terrible lies about us! They do not understand so they lie! But the Romans.. they are the masters of falsehood. War will come, I am sure of it. So, I will have no more false visions. And, I think, the children will be quiet tonight..."


The Charter of Carthage



Carthage is founded on the basis of honor and valor. It is also a more relaxed alliance which will go to great lengths to protect both its allies and prosperity. Its main objective is to be a fun alliance for all and for all nations to be efficient and experts of the game in their own way. Carthage is an alliance based on the blue and white spheres.

Joining Carthage

The Hannibal Barca

The Hannibal Barca is responsible for the defense of the alliance. He has the right to reform the military and must work with the military command to ensure the safety and preparedness of the alliance. All declarations of war must come from the Hannibal Barca. The main objective of the Hannibal Barca is to avoid war but to always be ready in the event a war arises.

He has the right to institute new ideas within the alliance and must work with other ministers to carry this out. He may provide new programs within the alliance and has the right, along with the Hamilcar Barca, to appoint whomever he wants to those positions.

He also is responsible for recruitment.

Senator Ambassador

The Senator Ambassador is responsible for appointing ambassadors to alliances outside of Carthage and may help settle disputes outside the alliance. He can also relay important information to the alliance to tell them about situations, happenings and climate of Planet Bob outside of Carthage. He must work directly with the Hasdrubal Barca to ensure dealings outside the alliance are moving smoothly.

Senator Merchant

The Senator Merchant is responsible for the economic welfare of the alliance. He is responsible for tech dealing and aid dealing both within and outside the alliance. He’s the right to institute new programs in the economic realm, provided they’re feasible. He is also responsible to help the economic sufferings of members within the alliance if need be.

Senator General

The Senator General is responsible of maintaining the military command and carrying out orders of the Hannibal Barca. He is also responsible for military check ins and relaying vital information to nations before a war breaks out for preparation.

Times of Peace

In times of peace the nations of Carthage are asked to remain respectful at all times. Tech raiding is prohibited. If they encounter problems within or outside the alliance they are encouraged to talk with The Republic to help settle any disputes. The membership’s responsibility is to have fun and grow while The Republic serves their needs.

Times of War

Carthage is based on a mandatory military. Those who do not wish to fight are asked to become bank nations. Those who desert are subject to punishment. Disobeying orders may also be punished.


Carthage holds the right to amend the charter at any time to meet the needs of the alliance, and not the other way around.

OOC: Sweet theme for an alliance! If you haven't read Pride of Carthage you need to - whether you are in this alliance or not. One of my favorite books I've ever read.

IC: Good luck!

[OOC] I'm going to check the university's library definitely interested in reading it and discussing it with you. [/OOC]

I don't need the Force as my ally to see where this is going to end.

It's such a shame someone such as yourself needs imaginary "forces" to help you foretell the future. Unlike Rome, Carthage was built in a day. ;)

Everyone else, thank you for all the well wishes. I hope I can make this alliance succeed, at the very least I won't give up. Even if it's a two man AA or a larger one.
