A Shaky Start
The Organized Nations of Superiority was founded by Lord Zion on June 10, 2006. ONOS was founded as a secret society, whose members were recruited by Lord Zion strictly through the CN Forum. The fourth member he recruited was King Arthur II. They immediately began working together to actively recruit members for the alliance, but good recruits were hard to find. The tenth member recruited was HeavyD. After about a month of solid recruiting with not one official position filled, they finally had recruited thirty members and began filling in the official positions. Around this time ONOS became a public alliance, though some believed it still had private sections and private goals within it.
At that point, Lord Zion chose King Arthur II of King Arthur's Court to be the public "leader" of ONOS, as Lord Zion would reign from the shadows. However, after some time it became evident who was pulling the strings at ONOS. Together Lord Zion and Arthur brought a new era of prosperity and growth to ONOS. Lord Zion actively recruited some of the stronger members of various alliances. This experience of the new recruits may be one reason ONOS grew so quickly and became a force in the maroon sphere. Another reason may be due to the connections and diplomatic skill of Lord Zion, who knew many of the leaders in various alliances.
However, Lord Zion grew further and further disassociated with ONOS and CN until eventually his nation was deleted for inactivity during a six-week hiatus. During that time, Arthur had decided that Lord Zion no longer was active in the cyberverse and began the process of moving ONOS forward without their former leader. Around late September 2006, King Arthur II took over as Godfather of ONOS, while HeavyD assumed his position as The Boss of ONOS.
The MAG debacle
King Arthur had good ties with the leader of TAGA, Tulak Horde. The two of them decided that ONOS and TAGA should merge to form the alliance known as the Maroon Allied Guardians, or MAG. King Arthur discussed this move with other ONOS officials and they all came to an agreement, meanwhile unbeknownst to them, things were not going as well at TAGA. Tulak Horde decided that his decision was sufficient, so he failed to announce to any of his officials or members that ONOS would be joining TAGA and their name would be changed. In early October 2006, when ONOS members began flooding in and the announcement was made the general members of TAGA and officials were in an uproar.
Before 3 days had passed, MAG split in 3: ONOS members and officials returning home disgruntled, many TAGA officials leaving to found a new alliance the United Sovereign Nations to be away from Tulak Horde, and He was left with the remaining participants of MAG. Tulak Horde knew that the name Maroon Allied Guardians was now tainted, so he instead changed the alliance name to the Maroon Defence Coalition and started anew.
The Return of Lord Zion
Shortly after the MAG incident, King Arthur decided it was time for ONOS to have new forums and weed out the inactive members. So on October 20, 2006 ONOS switched boards to another invisionfree server, but an unexpected guest traveled with them; the long missing founder Lord Zion. Lord Zion immediately tried to gain his own position back. A position that King Arthur said he would keep safe until his return. This was said three weeks before Lord Zion returned. In that time, because of the new members (between the new forums a surge of new membership and the Alliance merge from before), Lord Zion was unable to have the loyalty he once had. After trying to gain contact with King Arthur for a few days, Lord Zion got enraged by this disloyalty. When King Arthur did finally come back on the new boards he banned the former leader thinking it was an imposter. Their reasoning was that there was no way to prove Lord Zion was the real Lord Zion at first. When it was proven that it was the real Lord Zion some thought it the right time to give him back leadership, others thought it was too shaky a time to change leadership. After several events and long discussion Lord Zion was offered an advisory role. However, Lord Zion quickly found that key leadership were not taking his advice, and again sought the leader role.
After several posts of Lord Zion continually asking who would support him, the new leadership got angry at the continual loyalty tests imposed by Lord Zion. King Arthur threatened that he would create a new alliance and many the members would follow him. Then another threat saying either Lord Zion leave or King Arthur. Lord Zion decided it was in ONOS's best interest for the more loyal following to continue and fatigued from the new leaderships lack of any respect towards the Lord Zion he choose to leave. This was Lord Zions final official decision before he left the world of ONOS forever with that name.
Even Before Lord Zion left and King Arthur threatened him, Lord Zion made this public on the CN boards. Because of Lord Zion's respect with other leaders from his past experience, many of the alliances of CN supported ONOS, and officially declared the new ONOS leadership as a coup. After this, many of the leaders wanted to help Lord Zion, and started to make threats on ONOS militarily. Quickly after this started Lord Zion waved off the attacks exclaiming this was not what he wanted and that ONOS and its members were not to be harmed. Lord Zion made an official resignation of ONOS leadership, and his membership on CN before he left for good.
After this many of the leaders began to think of the new ONOS, not as a coup but as a respectable alliance.
After being away for 2 months Lord Zion returned, however under the name Garak in the MDC alliance. After helping them for a while and working as an ambassador to many other alliances he left MDC later too. While at MDC, Lord Zion now known as Garak was making a new alliance that he called an "alliance of alliances". From Lord Zion's past he had always wanted to create maroon unity, a goal he started and didn't go as planned. This new super alliance was to encompass many of the most powerful alliances of the world including his past alliance of ONOS. Named NEXUS, it never took off because of leader’s worry about what exactly it would mean for their own alliance.
Lord Zion or Garak, finally after his failed attempt with NEXUS, came back a final time as Marquis Ondore. Ondore worked with ONOS for a little speaking with King Arthur, but remained mainly by himself. He continues to keep in contact with all his previous alliances and friends however made the decision to stay out of alliance politics. He now mainly keeps to himself, as an independent nation that is always helpful when a fellow nation asks for it.
A Final Beginning
December 2006 marked the beginning of a new era for ONOS. It was a time of great change and prosperity. After the King Arthur coup and scandal, the leaders had decided to move boards once more, this time to a paid domain, http://www.onos-alliance.com would be their new and final home as they decided to make a charge towards being one of the top alliances in all of the cyberverse. Along with this change in home, ONOS had a series of membership boosting exercises and more than doubled their members in less than 2 weeks. Also in early December, ONOS began a new era in its foreign policy, it had entered into an MADP treaty with the North Atlantic Defense Coalition and the Commonwealth of Sovereign Nations, this treaty was named GUARD (Grand Union of Alliances for Rapport and Defense) and hoped to emerge as a new power bloc in the cyberverse. The founding announcement follows.
A Revolutionary Accord—Dec 9 2006 @ 8:59 AM
From the Desk of the Press Secretary of the NADC:
Today, the NADC, CSN, and ONOS come to the rest of the international CyberNations community with grand news. After much discussion, we have all agreed that this course of actions represents the best wishes of our members. In order to further secure their safety, sovereignty, and continued prosperity, we join together.
- For three months now, the NADC has been developing and discussing a revolutionary treaty, a giant leap forward in the evolution of defense pacts. Interested alliances came and went, none fully willing to commit to the bold terms of the pact that made it so unique. Eventually, however, we settled on two innovative alliances who were just as bold as the treaty itself. These alliances have weighed the alternatives, and have seen the benefits that this epic pact offers. They are the CSN and ONOS, and we are proud to partner with them in this endeavor. But what is this treaty?
- This treaty is GUARD, Grand Union of Alliances for Rapport and Defense. GUARD is not just an MDP between two single partners; it is a multi-alliance coalition, supporting several organizations in a single document. It allows for economic benefit programs, military cooperation, and much more, while still maintaining the complete sovereignty of its signatories.
- Written collectively by individuals such as Chris Canny, myself, and others, it breaks the one restraint which has, in our opinion, managed the cripple the entire Cyberverse, and is responsible for creating the aptly named MDP Web that entangles all who venture near. Which is why, I am proud to announce, that GUARD is completely and utterly disconnected from the MDP web. No black lines bind us to its writhing mass, no world wars threaten to unwittingly drag us into to their chaos. We are now an independent body, but not an unprotected one. GUARD secures our freedom, our independence, and it is because of its bold nature that we will stand strong.
In Spring 2007, late May, ONOS was attacked by The New Pacific Order/NPO because of allegations of spying, propagated by the now infamous former leader, Da Choice. The Godfather at the time- King Arthur II- was accused, along with the three other leaders of ONOS, of spying on NPO and using NPO guides for ONOS. The Surrender terms were to give up the paid website and demote all leaders or be ZI'ed. Peace terms were finalized with the help of Michael4 (the then Boss of ONOS), Sirettx (the newly promoted Capo of Foreign Affairs) and Flonker (a Family Don). Sirettx would remain with the alliance and help rebuild, while Michael4, Flonker, Genau and a handful of other nuke capables opted to leave the alliance and fight NPO with King Arthur II as per terms of surrender. After staying in peace mode for at least a month, King Arthur II finally emerged, Waiting for an attack of some sort for another 3 weeks, He went to NPO asking what is wrong, why haven't any attacks been made. They simply stated to him "Your not a target anymore",thus making King Arthur II and the members of ONOS, safe from ZI,Or at-least so it seemed. As a result of this, ONOS was placed under the leadership of Ivan_Moldavi, who served as Viceroy as well as two other NPO leaders who assumed leadership roles in ONOS. ONOS was declared protectorate of NPO for the month of June. King Arthur II officially stepped down as Godfather and within weeks changed his ONOS Alliance board into a non-gaming related community board. He still maintains contact with former members, but has stayed away from Cyber Nations politics. Initially, ONOS members were not allowed to leave the alliance. This was to retain a sense of stability and to prevent a mass exodus. This policy was rescinded by Ivan after a few weeks. Immediately, the feared mass exodus occurred, further decreasing ONOS' numbers to barely 100 in a week. A former member, Ejayrazz, who had served as Capo of Foreign Affairs, returned to the alliance forums. Ejay was well liked by many members and had a solid reputation from his time as Capo. He had left the alliance, stating that ONOS was on the verge of falling down hill, a message similar to that given by another long standing former member, Darth Vincent, when he left the alliance. Ejayrazz hadn't returned to rejoin ONOS but, instead, tried using his Foreign Affairs skills to begin peace negotiations with Ivan Moldavi in an attempt to lift the ban on members leaving the alliance. This garnered good will with many members of ONOS and, when they were eventually allowed to leave the alliance, many found a home with Ejayrazz with his current alliance, the Grämlins.
Under NPO Control (NPONOS)
Still, ONOS and its members continued to persevere. ONOS had always had a fairly silent majority, and percentage-wise, not much had changed. It was a hard time for ONOS to be under NPO control and having to switch boards made many feel that ONOS had lost its identity and had become simply a puppet to the NPO. A few stand outs helped to retain ONOS's identity and began to rebuild ONOS's good name: Sirettx (now promoted to Underboss and the highest ranked ONOS member), Blackdeath (the Consigliere), Preatorian (Capo of Immigration), and Master S (a Soldier). Through their efforts the spark of ONOS was kept burning. The idea that ONOS was a puppet of NPO was, in retrospect, unclear. It is true that NPO members held the highest positions in the alliance during the NPO occupation. Still, NPO involvement in ONOS internal matters declined almost immediately. Ivan Moldavi, ONOS's NPO appointed Viceroy and having the position of Godfather, was hardly active in alliance affairs and left the day to day running of ONOS to others. While occupied ONOS was a much more "pro-NPO" alliance than it had been in earlier days, it was also such a minor concern to NPO that, after occupation, they had little interest in it. After the first week of occupation, most ONOS members had calmed down to the point that NPO policing was unnecessary. NPO had other matters that required it's members' attention and so ONOS mostly governed itself with some input (and, yes, approval) from the NPO leaders that remained.
Another Final Beginning
At the end of June, NPO declared a statement releasing ONOS from NPO control and removing all NPO officials from the ONOS ranks. While Ivan Moldavi had originally intended to remain as Godfather, he had lost interest in the position during occupation and other matters had consumed more of his time. When NPO released ONOS, he stepped down. It was a proud day for the remaining members of ONOS who had taken to Sirettx and Preatorian because of their effort and contribution to the alliance in the times of hardship. And so ONOS continued with the process of rebuilding that had begun during the occupation and a new government was selected; Sirettx (the fourth Godfather), Renolds (the Boss), Blackdeath (the Underboss renamed the Don) and Unterwasserseestaat (Consigliere). Emerging from NPO Occupation smarter, more experienced, and more devoted than ever before, ONOS seized the opportunity to recreate an amazing alliance.
The Road to Rebuilding
ONOS was down to 100 members and little activity. Sirettx began working on ONOS' problems and promoting worthy members. Along with the promotions came Preatorian who was promoted to (The Don) and his successor was to be SuperginraiX. Many days of hardwork paid off. ONOS' activity increased and along with that positions were being filled. Master S was promoted to Capo of Internal Affairs, Rebirth of Gorniar was promoted to Capo of Foreign Affairs, Blue Lightning (returning to the alliance after a stay at IRON) was promoted to Capo of War, and Defense and Lineazy89 was promoted to Capo of Economics. All the promotions led to increased activity and growth, ONOS began large scale aid programs lead by the fine Capo of Economics, Lineazy89, and Immigration grew with new members joining and old members returning. Forum activity increased as a new excitement overtook membership. The silent majority remained, but the active minority grew. On August 17, 2007, ONOS again moved to a paid site. ONOS's new home included arcade games (to help increase activity) and a new, inviting design. As ONOS renewed and formed ties with old and new alliances, the future looked bright. ONOS's past is full of "deaths" and "rebirths." It is hard to say with certainty what the future will hold for this great alliance. All that is certain is that the spark that is ONOS is hard to snuff out; that it will find a way to live and thrive and return to greatness time and time again.
A Roadblock (The Unjust War)
In early September 2007, ONOS followed through with their MDP with NoV and declared war on the alliance GOD. On September 19, 2007 GOD announced it's surrender to ONOS and her Allies in the The Unjust War . The Unjust War brought renewed enthusiasm to the ONOS membership but it was also a telling sign that the "Silent Majority" was a problem and that a radical change was needed to continue existing.
A Final Ending
Following the Unjust War, ONOS had found it's ties with DUAL strengthened to the point where serious talk of merging alliances was taking place. Those talks lead to the formation of the Confederation Of Radical Elites, or CORE. This merger was finalized on October 10, 2007. By this point, ONOS's good name was seen to have suffered permanent damage and that even it's mention was cursed. It's days of glory were long behind it and it's future led to stagnation and ruin. Rather than continue down this path, Sirettx chose to begin a course of strengthening the alliance through mergers and rebranding. The Ghost of ONOS would follow the merged alliance for a long time afterward, mostly being mentioned in taunts from other alliances.
And maybe in the end, that's for the best. To many former members of ONOS, this was the alliance that they'll always remember and be proud of, the good and the bad. In a way, ONOS still lives on. You just have to figure out where the last merger took them.
