|Former Member Alliances|
- For the once rumored potential bloc of the same name revealed by The Tattler, see: The Tattler/Bastion
- For the expansion that occurred on July 23, 2010, see: Bastion (2nd)
Bastion was a Mutual Defense bloc between Ragnarok, the Random Insanity Alliance, and the Viridian Entente announced on February 13, 2009. It was left with one member and effectively disbanded following the withdrawal of VE and RoK on June 17, 2010. At the time of its cancellation and for several months previous the three signatories all held higher level treaties with one another with RIA and RoK being member alliances of the SuperFriends and the Viridian Entente holding MDoAPs with both of them.
The Viridian Entente, the Random Insanity Alliance and Ragnarok:
Aiming at the achievement of a just, lasting and comprehensive peace, and a little bit of fun;
Aspiring to develop friendly relations and co-operation between them, if not getting a little sexual;
Seeking a pathway that will lead to full and frank communication between them, especially when drunk;
Desiring to ensure lasting security for all Alliances and in particular to avoid espionage and the threat or use of force between them,;
