  1. Honestly, it's a terrible idea. We've been here before with Cybernations trade circles and all it does in that game is generate a lot of stress for the poor sucker in each alliance that ends up having to organise them. They're just simply not fun and will do nothing other than widen the gap between haves and have nots.
  2. Yep i agree with that. Although a lot of alliances once big enough to be sanctioned in CN have already made an appearance in Orbis at some point. UPN, WTF, Fark, Polaris (NpO), GATO, R&R, Legion and now IRON are all here and ODN, VE, Ragnarok, GPA, GOONS & NPO have in the past. That's also not including any communities which have come across in all but name, of which there have been many
  3. Ahh, what wondrous tidings it is to find this sweet, sweet oasis in amongst these harsh desert lands!
  4. All the best to you Commonwealth in the future, you've got some good people
  5. The Greater Unitary Republic have been one of UPN's longest standing protectorates and have grown fantastically well over the last few months. Therefore we jointly felt that it was only right that we acknowledge the changing relationship between our two alliances and upgrade our previous protectorate arrangement to the following funky new MDoAP Treaty of Curacao Preamble By signing this document, all the signatory alliances agree to the articles stated below and enter into this agreement with full knowledge of its contents. Article I - Article of Non-Aggression Neither alliance shall engage in hostile actions against the other. Hostile actions are defined as assaults, declarations of war and acts of espionage. Both alliances also agree to not engage in hostile actions against any alliance that either alliance is obliged to defend, unless they are doing so due to a mandatory outside treaty. Article II – Article of Intelligence & Communication Both alliances will share any intelligence that is to the benefit of the other alliances wellbeing. This includes intended new mutual defense treaties with third parties. Article III - Article of Mutual Defense If either signatory is attacked by a foreign party, the other is obligated to immediately offer military and financial assistance. If the attack was the result of the defender having declared war on another alliance, then this article is optional. Article IV – Article of Optional Aggression If either alliance declares war then the other alliance has the option to also declare war on the same target. Article V - Article of Withdrawal Section 1) 120 hours of notice must be given to the other alliance before Article II, II & IV can be dissolved. After this period Article I remains in place for another 30 days. Signatures- The signatures below immediately enter this document as alliance law and materialize the good relations that exist between the alliances that have signed below. Once entered into law, it shall remain there until it is dissolved through the process detailed in Article V. The Greater Unitary Republic President: Pegleg Vice President: Luis I of Brazil Secretary of State: Padisah Abdulhamid Secretary of War: Sir_Kotsos Secretary of the Treasury: Omen Khan Secretary of the Interior: Marcus Liddell Secretary of Trade and Commerce: Generic The United Purple Nations Prime Minister: Hansarius Chief of Staff: Noreen Minister of Internal Affairs: Matt Minister of Foreign Affairs: Cora Minister of Finance: Axley Minister of Defense: Sealteam Minister of Communications: Altheus
  6. New UPN Charter and Government UPN has been through a lot of changes recently, old members coming back, new city & project building programme taking place, new directions and foreign policies, but perhaps the biggest change is little known in that we have recently changed our charter and government structure to place the alliance in the care of a democratically elected Senate, who will serve for 6 month periods and are in charge of appointing a new Prime Minister and Ministers of the alliance (including from their own number) Elections took place between Christmas and New Year and the newly elected 1st Senate of the United Purple Nations Republic is as follows: Matt2004, SirgogobeanS, Sealteam6, Noreen, Hansarius, Cameron Axley & Altheus The Senate then set about immediately appointing the new UPN government for the New Year. As of today it's my pleasure to announce the new UPN government that will be working together to further the alliance, it's allies and protectorates interests. Hansarius: Prime Minister Noreen: Deputy Prime Minister Matt2004: Minister of Internal Affairs CoraMcstrap: Minister of Foreign Affairs Cameron Axley: Minister of Finance Sealteam6: Minister of Defense Altheus: Minister of Communications Jared95: Deputy Minister of Finance CoraMcstrap: Deputy Minister of Defense Sirgogobeans: Deputy Minister of Communications (Entertainment and Gaming) Alliance Elders: Altheus, Hansarius, Matt2004, Jared95 & Malichy Congratulations to all and also a big thank you to Matt for guiding the alliance as Prime Minister for so long. Hansarius was actually our very first Prime Minister from when Politics and War started, so it's back-to-the-future. Upwards and onwards! Ribenaberries forever, Altheus
  7. Ave Legio Also, good to see classic and well-written treaty texts are back in fashion
  8. Congrats everyone on a hard fought war, it's been fun. Personal admiration goes out to House Stark for some well-timed counter attacks early on it the war
  9. I'm glad that's finally cleared up, it'd been eating into my conscience too long!
  10. Been a long time since I've seen that name. Ave Legio and Purple Love
  11. God, I love you citrus flavoured guys so much. Enjoy your war!
  12. In a land far far away...something...about...karma
  13. Was warned away from coming back to Orbis because apparently wars were no fun, but I don't know, seem ok to me. Game just needs more of them.
  14. Can see what you're getting at. If nothing else it would make allliance-wide raiding very attractive (and almost guarantee that neutrals become/stay extinct) People will have different views on that.
  15. I think what you can do with treasures is held back by being allocated to nations rather than alliances. I understand the reasons, but any of the obvious fixes to stop their abuse (restricting them from being captured outside of colour sphere, only one per alliance) don't really work whilst their allocated to nations who don't automatically have the same colour sphere or continent as their alliance and can take their treasures with them when they move alliances. But if Alex did change treasures to be held back by alliances rather than nations then we'd need a system for determining when an alliance had beaten another alliance enough to have captured their treasure, which feels a bit artificial
  16. Hmmm, that is a good point. At which point Claims start looking a lot like Treasures. Maybe the solution is to increase the importance and interaction of Treasures in regards to colour spheres. You have suggestions?
  17. Same as before, economics feeds politics which feeds war. Fundamentally disagree that this isn't political. If an alliance is in opposition to another alliance because they have a claim they want then that's fundamentally political.
  18. War comes from politics, if you can provide incentive to declare war for political reasons then you are increasing the chances of player driven wars. Don't make the mistake of treating war & politics as two separate things. ----- Although your point of the cost to benefit ratio of war vs. the colour bonus is very valid. As it stands it wouldn't be worth starting a war over. To fix we'd need to either make war less costly (outside the scope of this suggestion) or increase the benefit of the colour bonus so it is worth it.
  19. @ Political Friction. There aren't a lot of dimensions to the political friction though other than being the king of the hill. It'd be good to add more aspects to the political game. @ Military Incentive. Yep, that's a real problem although it's out of the scope of this suggestion. Alliances-wide wars are very costly for the benefit they bring. Although you could say the same about any suggestion designed to add conflict. @ Uneven playing field. Well... yes, but unfairness can be a good source for conflict. You could say that it's not fair that all nations can't get nukes from day 1 but it doesn't stop it happening. It's a matter of working out what unfair things are good for a game by leaving ways in which they can be overcome. @ Beige nations. Nations can't stay on Beige and alliances can't choose to be Beige. Hence that's not an issue.
