Preamble: Goals of The Dark BrotherHoodEdit
We, the Citizen nations of the The Dark Brotherhood (TDB), realizing the need for greater security and stability in the Cyberverse, do hereby set forth the principles that the Coalition of Governments holds dear as well as the rules and regulations governing this alliance. Only through strict adherence to these principles can the The Dark BrotherHood contribute to the stability of Cyber Nations.
Article I: Citizenship and Guiding PrinciplesEdit
The Dark BrotherHood is a Black alliance. We will not accept any forms of dual membership. Applicants of TDB will, upon approval, become members of TDB only. Evidence of dual membership is punishable by expulsion or military action. We will also decline any applicant nation that is at war with another nation; however, if that nation is not part of another alliance and did not declare the war, that nation has the opportunity to enter the alliance after peace has been declared, or the war expires. If peace is not declared or agreed upon, the alliance has the right to intervene sending in nations to first warn the attacking nation and then to use action, as specified by the Black Hand. The Brotherhood will also deny citizenship to anyone that is deemed a potential threat to the harmony of the alliance.
In order to join The Dark Brotherhood a nation must provide the following information:

Founded by old government members of PLUS looking to have a good time. Originally called The BrotherHood. Flag and seal have elements of an old bloc members were a part of. In late August, the government was overhauled to its current form, 2 leaders and a council. Minor dispute between The Dark Brotherhood and a small alliance tech raided made the leaders focus on getting a protectorate finally. Accompanying the government overhaul and the name change came a protectorate with Alpha Omega.
On October 25, 2009, The Night Mother, Sithis and The Black Hand, decided to appoint a Silencer. Shadow Walker was named TDB's first Silencer. A few weeks before this new appointment, TDB's charter was reworded to its current form. This included several new ranks and Government name changes.
Recent History (As of 2010)Edit
On February 14, 2010 TDB merged with the small red team alliance - Christie Kreme. Under this agreement, the officials within Christie Kreme were granted leadership positions within TDB.
Several former Christie Kreme members have begun to play prominent roles in the government of TDB including supremeoverlordbob who is currently the listener - the second highest position within the Black Hand. Other active ex-CrKr members with positions of authority include glad30, BrettSharpe, Lord Sedlitz and King Bryan (who has since deleted his profile).
Building Up A Strong AllianceEdit
The Dark Brotherhood is continuing to seek new agreements with other alliances by using its connections to GATO (through CrKr), Nueva Vida and others to try to establish a strong community. Tech deals are constantly occurring between nations in and outside of TDB. TDB is currently focusing on recruiting new members by advertising the closeness between members and the fact that every person gets a say in affairs.
Current and Former Treaties Edit
