as of 7/4/07
The DLP was founded on February 24th, 2007 by Xiphosis due to internal issues in the Elite Nations Alliance, which later led to its dissolving.
Roughly three to four days after the founding, newly appointed Triumvir of Foreign Affairs Nukular Winter came to a disagreement with the Molon Labe alliance. During this time, a rogue by the name of stuffy tech raided three Combatant nations. Triumvir of War Spacks, seeing discussions of planned quad attacks against the rogue thought that talks had fallen out with Molon Labe. He then kick-banned the Molon Labe diplomat from the Combatant's channel and launched an unsanctioned attack against them. In return, the Molon Labe declared war on the DLP.
He soon recognized his mistake, and handed in his resignation. It was rejected.
Prior to this the DLP signed a Peace, Intelligence, and Aid Treaty with the Imperial Blue Covenant and was offered a Protectorate Pact with the Viridian Entente. Both parties played witness to the aforementioned events, and quickly stepped in and ended it after less than three days.
Soon thereafter, the DLP and Viridian Entente formally signed the Protectorate Agreement. The DLP and Imperial Blue Covenant also signed the Shadow Smack Accords, a Mutual Defense Pact, and the DLP and ONOS signed a Friendship treaty.
Great War IIIEdit
On the onset of the Third Great War, the alliances of LoSS, /b/, and ACID declared war on the Viridian Entente. In response, the DLP entered the war and attacked LoSS. Complications soon arose due to members of ACID using the LoSS alliance affiliation, which later led to the Imperial Blue Covenant declaring war on ACID.
The mistake was soon realized, and peace was declared between the Covenant and ACID. ACID approached the DLP thereafter and the order went out to declare peace with all ACID members, once they had returned to their regular alliance affiliation.
The Pridians exist primarily as an invite-only alliance, and was formed by a group of off-site friends who've known each other through multiple games and websites for some years.
A few weeks into April, the DLP accepted it's first member that was unrelated completely to the other groups, Hírvegil Arnanu. Hírvegil formerly served as a diplomat from ONOS to the DLP, and later approached the Triumvirate for membership. The matter was discussed at length within the membership, and with the sentiment largely in favor, he was accepted.
On April 26th, 2007 the CNC announced a number of changes, including:
- A name change to The Distinguished Lords of Pridia (DLP).
- Official status as a Maroon alliance.
- A change in recruitment policy; the DLP now actively recruits members, and has dropped it's former invite-only policy.
- A flag change.
- A forum move.
In addition to this, the Pridian Lords have recently broken 450,000 Total Nation Strength.
The Entente No MoreEdit
On May 25th, by decree of Lord Ardus of the Viridian Entente, a long time friend and ally of the Pridian Lords disbanded. Suffice it to say the Pridian alcohol supply is substantially depleted in mourning.
