Announcement From Invicta

Recommended Posts

[center][font="Franklin Gothic Medium"][b][size="5"]Jorost Steps Down as Leader of Invicta[/size][/b][/font][/center]

[font="Times New Roman"]Two years ago tonight, I became president of the Invicta alliance. This was the culmination of a long held ambition, and I was deeply honored to serve. During my time in office Invicta has seen a lot of tumult and a lot of changes. We have moved forums twice. We have taken part in two large scale wars, and several smaller actions. We changed our official name. We moved to a new sphere. Through it all I have been honored to have the support and loyalty of the finest members any alliance leader could ask for. Frankly, they deserved far better than the likes of me! To paraphrase a former president from a world not so different from our own, I may not have been the best leader Invicta ever had, but no leader ever had more fun!

It has been an amazing journey. But now I have come to the journey's end. It is time for a new generation to take the helm of our ship of state. To that end, I do hereby resign as leader of Invicta, effective immediately. As my successors I name two co-presidents, Dan2680 and President Gunn (aka Nascar8FanGA). This represents a return to the system of government under which Invicta was founded by our original co-presidents, Dawny and DoubleU. My esteemed successors are each outstanding leaders with a long history of service to our alliance. I have the utmost confidence in their abilities, and I am excited to see where they take us.

I will remain an active presence both in my alliance and on the larger stage of the world of Bob, and I will be happy to offer my advice and assistance to our new leadership if and when it is needed. Otherwise, well, I'm sure I'll find something to keep me busy!

Anyone know any good golf courses?

/s/ [b]Jorost of the Triune Republic, Lord Protector of Invicta[/b][/font]

Couldn't have asked for a better leader and I'm glad you are sticking around.

Also, I knew about this months ago. :)

Enjoy your retirement, Jorost; you've certainly earned it. Good luck to Nascar and Dan, I have faith that you'll both do great.

Jorost you will be missed, good to know you are going to be around. As for Nas and Dan? I guess the mind is slipping a bit with age.

I see many good things ahead for everyone there, glad to be a friend and ally to you guys.

Excellent decision to go with two Presidents, organizations thrive under two leaders. Go ahead, name a country without two presidents. Or a ship that sets sail without two captains.

Where would Catholicism be, without the Popes?

I believe that in some situations, a duumvirate can work as well as a triumvirate. Nascar and Dan are both highly-experienced people, and I'm sure they'll do excellently as leaders.

As jerk-ish as it sounded, it made me laugh.

Godspeed Jorost, and good luck to the new leaders.

I'll put that in the special file for posts from you. Other than that, I can only wish the Glorious Biumvirs my utmost congratulations on their new co-posts, and I greatly anticipate watching them work in perfect harmony, leading Invicta to new heights.

OOC: And both of those are powerful and respected first world countries that regularly participate in G8 summits, correct?

Should I even waste breath asking why you have a file for my posts? Wait, it's because you love me that much, isn't it? :wub:

OOC: San Marino's 1,700 years old. I think it's doing pretty well.

It's a reference, as was my original post. That whooshing sound you hear is the reference going over your head. Be that as it may, the "lol why you do care so much" tack got old in 2006. Or rather, grade two.
