Myrmidons were an independent, homosexual-themed alliance formed in January, 2008. They were based from the site Gaymer.org, as well as The Gay Youth Corner and Mogenic. It reformed under the same name on October 1, 2008 See Myrmidons (2nd)


History of Myrmidons Edit

The History of Myrmidons (1st)Edit

The Escape That Almost Wasn't Edit

The first incarnation of Myrmidons was founded on January 21, 2008 by openly gay Purge Minister of Recruitment, Pathos. Pathos had left the alliance contemporaneously to a coup within his own alliance. The Order of the Phoenix having considered Triumvir Oreo unfit to rule ordered a reformation of Purge's government, when Triumvir Comrade Korey learned that the new reformation left him and all three triumvirs without power. Comrade Korey shut down the system of government outright. Pathos resigned in the midst of the coup, within an hour Overlord Slayer ordered an embargo on resignations from Purge under pain of war. Pathos carelessly boasted his having escaped in the face of the Purge Viceroy, OBR. Pathos' hubris at that time would in the end prove disastrous for his alliance.

Reception Edit

Reception guarding the creation of the alliance, stated at that time as GBLT only, was mixed. Members of the Continuum, especially the New Pacific Order met the move with a generally positive attitude. Some alliances held issue with the creation of the alliance and argued that it was smearing the line between OOC-IC boundaries far too much for it to be a legitimized alliance. Pathos insisted that the alliance was never intended to cause discrimination of any kind within Cybernations, and further stated that any Myrmidon who created drama in Cybernations would be removed from the alliance.

Myrmidons Begins to Form Edit

Membership in Myrmidons was at first lacking. Support flooded in from abroad as people began to ambitiously look forward to the assent of this new alliance. Pathos, for his part, became known after the fact as a legendary recruiter. Within one week, Myrmidons had gained ten members, and in a single day he managed to boost Myrmidons membership from two to seven, that date being January 25. The task was not easy however, and the members he gathered were both inexperienced and disinterested with Cybernations.

The government of Myrmidons was, upon its founding, a triumvirate much like Purge before. The only difference between the two alliances was that Myrmidons lacked a Ministry of Recruitment. Later however, upon seeing the civil strife underway in Purge, Pathos revised his charter utterly turning it into what he called a "ternion" style government. He would be the Director-General, leader for life. Beneath him were two Director-Consuls, who both served as both candidates for the position as well as seconds in command. Beneath this were the newly dubbed Departments, headed by Secretariats rather than Ministers, the name change was merely cosmetic.

On January 25, 2008 Myrmidons adopted a temporary flag and a national anthem, both of which seething with fabulous. Kurushio of NATO was kind enough to modify the flag, thereby making it the new resident flag of the alliance.

Deal with Pinochet leads to Disaster Edit

Shortly following the creation of the alliance, Pathos immediately began to realize that recruitment from the sites he had chosen would not result into the political powerhouse he was hoping. He had earlier been asked by Pinochet to join his own alliance 'United Nations of Digiterra', Pathos decided to revisit the offer. Initially (it had been hoped) Pinochet would join Myrmidons with TheScholar and the two of them along with Pathos would lead the alliance, with the exclusion of the GBLT part of the charter. Pinochet however insisted on a name change, and both himself and Pathos agreed to Entente of Unity. The move was approved of by Slayer, for the Entente of Unity was to be made a member of the Overlord Protectorate's Pact. The Membership of the EU as of January 31 still consists primarily of homosexuals from Mogenic and The Gay Youth Corner. Freed from the restraints of his own charter however, Pathos intends to recruit from running communities as well, perhaps granting The Entente of Unity a very diverse future to come. It was not to be so, for Pinochet did not keep his end of the bargain in going through with the merger, his nation having been deleted. TheScholar made no attempts to contact Pathos during this time. The new members, confused and disillusioned by Cybernations, simply went in-active. At the height of its membership, Myrmidons had nearly twenty members all of them having been recruited by Pathos. After the "merger", membership fell to 14 and continued to shrink and nations came to be deleted due to inactivity. The merger was an absolute distaster, but it was not the final blow.

"Purge Bulimia" leads to end of Myrmidons Edit

In late February it came to pass that Pathos was caught performing malicious edits of the Purge Wikia for the sake of humor for his old Purge comrades who had left the alliance. Schloss condemned the action and withdrew their embassy from the Entente of Unity. Pathos in response took the uncouth route and revoked Purge's right to use their flag, using rhetoric to explain that the symbolism the flag bore could no longer be used by the Purge Imperium. Schloss and Kharn addressed their frustration to this further, and it was finally agreed by both parties they would leave one another alone until it was all water under the bridge. After these events had transpired, Pathos was quick to give up his efforts on Entente of Unity and merge into Thundercox, which later merged into FPI and was stomped in the CIS-FPI War. It was at that time that Pathos resigned to his fate and went into exile. He would ultimately return on the 31st of September.

The New Myrmidons Edit

MyrmidonsNew

Official Flag of the current incarnation of Myrmidons

Myrmidons (2nd) was refounded on October 1, 2008 yet again by Pathos, under the incredibly original name of BaneofPathos >_>. The alliance though similar in its gay orientation, is different in several ways. First and foremost it is considered a Gay-Straight Alliance, rather than a GBLT Only Alliance. Secondly, rather than being a Multi-Team alliance, Myrmidons (2nd) is an exclusively maroon team alliance. More cosmetic changes include both a new flag and a new national anthem, each being significantly less flamboyant than that of the original incarnate.

Current Charter of Myrmidons Edit

TBA.
