The following is a text of Invicta's First Charter. It was largely replaced by provisions drafted by the Springdale Convention of 2008.

Philosophy[edit | edit source]

The Latin word invictus means "unconquer", "unconquerable", or "undefeated." The name Invicta is derived from this word, with the traditionally masculine -us ending replaced with the traditionally feminine -a. This root word represents the alliance's core value, epitomized by the Invicta motto:
Not in bravado and arrogance, but in determination and fearlessness in the face of adversity.

As an alliance of nations Invicta's objectives are:

  • to practice tolerance and work for the good of all members within the alliance
  • to unite under the principle that "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts"
  • to live in peace and use force only when it is necessary for the common good

Invicta believes that the only people who are truly defeated are the ones who give up!

Invictus Poem[edit | edit source]

The poem Invictus, written in 1875 by the British poet, critic, and editor William Ernest Henley (1849–1903), is used as an official "anthem" of the Invicta alliance.

Out of the night that covers me,

    Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
    Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:

    I am the captain of my soul.
