The Overlord's Protectorate Pact
While it is understood that The Phoenix Federation (TPF) is primarily responsible for the welfare of its protectorates, the undersigned protectorate alliances recognize that in order to assure the friendship, stability, growth, peace, and security of our respective alliances, closer bonds are required. In that spirit, we, the representatives of the undersigned Protectorates of The Phoenix Federation along with the representatives of The Phoenix Federation (TPF), do hereby establish the Overlord's Protectorate Pact (OPP).

OPP members are prohibited from signing outside treaties without prior approval from TPF. Additionally, OPP as an entity is prohibited from signing any treaties.
Section 2: Mutual Defense
While it is understood that TPF will vigorously defend their protectorates without question, the signatory protectorates are required to inform TPF of an issue requiring assistance. If a diplomatic solution cannot be made, OPP members with approval from TPF, may opt for an OPP Defensive Action instead of a TPF action. The request of an OPP action by an OPP member, must go before the OPP council. If a majority decision for an OPP action is not reached within 24 hours, the defensive action will automatically fall to TPF. If a majority decision is reached for an OPP defensive action, then all signatory protectorates are required to respond in defense of the attacked signatory.
Section 3: Optional Aggression
While it's always preferable to resolve issues diplomatically, it is understood that it is not always possible. In the event that an aggressive action is desired, the signatory protectorate is required to inform TPF and the other OPP members. With TPF's approval, the OPP member may request an OPP Offensive Action by presenting the request to the council. Any signatory protectorate may join in on the offensive action at their discretion, but participation is strongly encouraged. OPP members are required to notify other OPP members and TPF of any offensive operations, but if assistance is requested, a minimum 72 hours lead time is required.
Section 4: Protecting Our Protector
While recognizing that TPF is capable of defending itself, there may be situations that arise where additional support is needed. In that spirit TPF may request the assistance of the signatory protectorates of OPP. Such a request for a Protecting Our Protector action must be presented by TPF to the OPP Council. If a majority decision is reached by the OPP Council for an POP action, then all signatory protectorates are required to respond in defense of TPF.
Section 5: Fighting with TPF
TPF may request that OPP members join in on an offensive action. Such a request must be presented to the OPP Council. Any signatory protectorate may join in on the offensive action at their discretion, but participation is strongly encouraged.
