History of FKEdit
Fallen Knights was originally a Starcraft clan on the USWest server, much like the Grämlins. Founding members of that clan tried to get it started on Cyber Nations shortly after it disbanded on Starcraft. They failed. xR1 Fatal Instinct (also known as swat63) decided a few years later to try to make an alliance with his new found friend Nascar8FanGA (President Gunn in game). The alliance started out well getting a few mergers along the way under the protection of Invicta. The alliance's stats peaked at 36 members and 135,000 nation strength before government members started leaving. The remaining government members, xR1 Fatal Instinct, GeorgeIV, and AMan1500 decided it was best to disband the alliance. About 9 months later an original member approached xR1 Fatal Instinct while he was in Big Top Order and asked him if he wanted to give FK another shot. This time xR1 had more experience in the 9 months it was disbanded much of this experience was gained from Londo Mollari, leader of Athens. Doing much of the work, Katskip found a protectorate with Sparta, and got very professional forums. They decided to declare their existence shortly after. Despite much criticism from several members on the Purple Sphere, FK started up and soared off the ground.
