The Before "Before"Edit
In the age of 2006, in the month of December, two men known as Greenanatsu, and Shade0017, decided to form an alliance. This alliance would come to be known as the Pirates of the Parrot Order (PPO). The alliance grew prosperous, and stayed under the radar of major alliances. However, soon came a time for better acknowledging your allies. The formation of the GUILD. Shortly after the formation of the GUILD an incident occurred during a raid gone bad, and Shade0017 was left to the wolves by the new leadership of GUILD and left. During this time Greenansatsu had been away and on returning found that PPO was now a part of GUILD and that Shade0017 had been kicked out of the alliance he had created; Greenanastu left to join OBR at that time. With members from the GUILD(SFS(Sent from Satan), BTD(Brotherhood of the Dreaded) and the PPO formed BoTS. However, within a week of bad dealings, some pirates left. They formed an alliance known as SOLDIER. SOLDIER lost Shade0017 to Blackwater a few months after. A member, Caprontos took over, then left to Bushido. After Caprontos was Alucard65535. Alucard welcomed back a former PPO member as he stepped down and made that former member leader of SOLDIER. That member along with Alucard decided to move SOLDIER into PPO, and so it was made, that on July 15, 2008, PPO declared its Independence. PPO is a free alliance that WILL NOT EVER merge so long as Silent Blood Line is a Captain of the PPO.
A Change in LeadershipEdit
As of April 22, 2010, Silent Blood Line stepped down from his Cabin as the Captain of the PPO and handed over the reigns to a new leader. He appointed his then Commander of Foreign Affairs as the new Captain of the Pirates of the Parrot Order while taking up a position of guidance in the transitional period. As part of the new leadership, the PPO experienced an influx in organized tech deals and trade circles being set up, which will continue so long as Lurunin is at the helm. As a sidenote to Lurunin becoming the new Captain, after much discussion, revisions in the Rules of Engagement, a new flag, and development with even more plans to be worked on in the future.
Lurunin respects the ideals of brotherhood and friendship above all else and refuses to let either his alliance mates or friends of the alliance hang out to dry. He also wishes to mirror Silent Blood Line's position of never merging the PPO into another alliance, no matter the conditions.
A Period of RejuvenationEdit
In the month of October of 2015, Uron and Stripes began talks of a merger to help rejuvenate their respective alliances, and PPO was approached to be a part of this merger. After some discussion, it was decided that all alliances would merge into PPO. After a ratification of the charter, and much planning, the new PPO was announced on November 1st 2015.

We hold that it is in a nation's right to plunder another nation for booty if they so wish. However, as long as a member of the PPO flies the "Pirates of the Parrot Order" flag they must proceed through the proper channels to do so.
Those nations wishing to raid must also understand that they will receive no support from the Pirates of the Parrot Order if the raid goes awry. There is a strict, “raid at your own risk” policy.

Great War 5 InvolvementEdit
During the reformation of the Pirates of the Parrot Order, the PPO came under raid by the Poison Clan, Elysium, and a few other alliances. However, PPO did not activate any MDPs or treaties during that time. After a short break of about 5 days, PPO was notified of an attack on their Mutual Defense Pact partner, Alliance of Neutral Armadas. The attack was by Armed Coalition of Valor. The ACV had declared war on ANA due to their view on ANA being that of a possible threat to their protector, Mostly Harmless Alliance. Pirates of the Parrot Order jumped in on the war, and made a DoW at 4:20 PM on August 15 of the year 2008. PPO DoW'd regardless the fact it had been a target for constant tech raids for the past 30 days. PPO announced they shall not surrender until ANA does so. The first attack was by Sakura17 of the nation ninja kitty, an honored PPO member.
The Victory, and the SurrenderEdit
Once the Alliance of Neutral Armadas had surrendered to the Armed Coalition of Valor, so did PPO. All three of the alliances fought with honor for their own. MHA had entered the war as well due to the war turning from 1v1, to 2v1. However the side of MHA had then lopsided the war greatly.
The Pirates honor their victorious enemies. Meanwhile, this helped many pirates show their pride. Medals were given out, as well as ribbon to those whom charged their rage into their enemy, for the sake of the PPO.
Terms of Surrender for PPOEdit
- Decommission our soldiers to 25% of our population.
- Decommission all Tanks, Cruise Missiles, and Nukes.
- Decommission our navies, but not naval improvements.
- Decommission Guerrilla Camps, Satellites and Missile Defense improvements, unless it means decommissioning a wonder.
- Pay $45 Million dollars in reparations.

PB-NpO War InvolvementEdit
On January 28, Mostly Harmless Alliance, who hold a protectorate with the PPO, went to war against the alliances of The Foreign Division, We Are Perth Army, and Colossus in defense of an ally. They were then countered upon by The Peoples Community and Carpe Diem. The PPO do not watching as their close allies take a beating so on February 5, 2011, the PPO sailed to war to help their protectors overs at Mostly Harmless Alliance. They proceeded to declare war against The Foreign Division, an alliance 5x their size still and would not give peace until their allies at MHA were out of the war. The DoW was posted at 12:31 am server time, just before update, on the 5th of February on the year of 2011. The first attacks were made by the nations of Czar Tanner, of the nation United Nations III and by Reich of the nation Reich...both honored members of the PPO.
After only a few days of fighting, the forces of NV, GLOF, WAPA, Colossus, Quantum, AB, CD, TFD, NATO, TNG, TPC and DDM agreed to the peace agreement with the forces of Sparta, MHA, Fark, PPO, AO, DF, Umbrella, and Argent.
Their only terms in surrendering were the following:
- 1. All parties listed agree to cease all hostilities.
- 2. The parties of NV, GLOF, WAPA, Colossus, Quantum, AB, CD, TFD, NATO, TNG, TPC, and DDM agree to not re-enter on any point in the current conflict surrounding NpO or NPO. These parties may defend against an alliance who DoWs (or equivalent) against their treatied allies after these terms are posted.
Declarations of WarEdit
The PPO were honored to have to chance to help out their allies over at Mostly Harmless Alliance as well to have had to opportunity to fight such great opponents as The Foreign Division. Ribbons are to be distributed to all pirates who served in this war.
The Grudge War InvolvementEdit
Following the attacks on the New Polar Order by The Order of the Paradox and Independent Republic of Orange Nations, the next global war was kicked off with many alliances being dragged in willingly or pre-empted for any slight indication that an alliance may or may not fight. The Mostly Harmless Alliance was one such alliance who fell victim to the pre-emptive coalition warfare that was deployed freely. The Knights of Ni!, The Apparatus and Pirates Of the Parrot Order mobilized to help protect their ally against the curbstomp designed against them. The PPO jumped in after planning and coordination with allies and decided that their target would be Hooligans. The PPO went into the war with full intention of taking Hooligan attention off of MHA, and succeeded in their effort going so far as to destroy close to 40% of their pre-war nation strength. In the end, though, the MHA sought out peace and her and her allies agreed to surrender to the combined forces of Umbrella, Mushroom Kingdom, Orange Defense Network, Global Alliance and Treaty Organization, The Foreign Division, Hooligans, Viridian Entente (2nd), Alchemy, and The Prolific Empire.
Surrender Terms were hammered out that led to the following terms:
1) MHA, KofN, PPO, Apparatus, and TuR admit defeat and surrender to the alliances of GATO, MK, ODN, TPE, TLR, NG, Umbrella, VE, TFD, Hooligans, and Alchemy.
2) MHA, KofN, PPO, Apparatus, and TuR will not re-enter the current conflict or any wars resulting from the current conflict (this includes all fronts, the NPO/FARK front, the CSN front, the Polaris front, etc.). This also includes sending aid to Alliances at war.
3) KofN shall write a short story, graphics included, for TPE.
Declarations of WarEdit
The PPO were glad to have been able to stand with their allies against overwhelming odds and hold their heads up even in defeat knowing that they helped fight a war for a just cause of true defense to an ally in the face of an unprovoked attack.
Dave War InvolvementEdit
Seven months after the end of the PPO's involvement in the Grudge War, global war had erupted again and the PPO entered the fray. This global war broke out after the Mushroom Kingdom attacked the Commonwealth of Sovereign Nations for continuing to attack Dave93 who was on CSN's ZI list for spying. Many alliances, including the PPO, were still rebuilding from the Grudge War and only just starting to rebuild their warchests again. Even still, much of the world mobilized for war and the PPO were no different. The PPO's MDoAP ally, the Mostly Harmless Alliance officially entered the war against the Global Alliance and Treaty Organization in defense of R&R. The alliances of Hooligans, LOSS, The Brain declared war on MHA soon after. The PPO requested from the MHA who they would like some help against in the war and it was mutually decided that LoSS would be the target.
The Pirates of the Parrot Order were prepping their nations for war when their allies in Global Protection Force and Nations Empowered Against Totalitarianism asked if a joint strike would be possible to maximize efficiency in the war. After a few conversations it was agreed that the combined nations of the PPO, GPF, and NEAT would initiate a joint strike upon LoSS. Unfortunately though, setbacks were had with the last minute planning and certain problems arose. On July 11, 2012 the joint DoW was made and the wars began. Eventually, the fighting wound down on all fronts and peace would be made with the Pirates of the Parrot Order, Mostly Harmless Alliance, Global Protection Force, and Nations Empowered Against Totalitarianism agreed to admit defeat to the combined forces of the Global Alliance and Treaty Organization, LOSS, The Brain, Hooligans, Dark Templar, and The Imperial Order (2nd).
The terms for the end of this war were simple ones:
"No Re-entry, No Aiding, Nothing but firm handshakes, Respectful bows and a tip o' the cap to each other."
Declarations of WarEdit
The PPO were proud to be able to fight on behalf of their allies in MHA and prouder yet to stand side by side with their other allies in GPF and NEAT. The war taught many things that would not be forgotten, especially that it is possible to have go to war with an alliance and still stay respectful from start to finish. Even in defeat, the PPO sails on.
Equilibrium War InvolvementEdit
The EQ War was one that was planned in the backrooms during the Dave War Conflict. Certain alliances met in the shadows to try and overthrow the regime that Doom House had built itself. The War itself started due to a rogue nation Masterof9puppets declared war on Anarchy Inc. The reason it expanded into full fledged world war was due in part to the alliance Umbrella filling the war slots of the rogue nation and hindering AI's abilities to punish the rogue. Masterof9puppets and UMB nations coordinated so that when the rogue left peace mode, within minutes, all of his war slots would be filled. Anarchy Inc., in turn, called upon their allies in Independent Republic of Orange Nations, New Pacific Order, The Imperial Order (2nd), and North Atlantic Treaty Organization to collectively declare war on Umbrella, and thus the war began on January 18, 2013.
The PPO found itself entering the conflict alongside their newest allies, The Outlaws Republic. They would be assisting on the VE front alongside their own allies in The Empire of the New Evolution (2nd). TOR and TENE officially joined the Equilibrium (war coalition) on January 27, 2013, with the PPO being on standby for any counters. The Pirates of the Parrot Order finally joined the fray alongside TOR on February 2, 2013 and helped keep the pressure on the Viridian Entente (2nd) until peace was restored to Planet Bob on March 26, 2013 via Umbrella and the "Competence Coalition" surrendering to the Equilibrium Coalition and Allies.
After almost two full months of war, the PPO and her allies finally saw peace restored. Though, it was nowhere near the peace expected, nor wanted. Controversy upon controversy plagued the EQ coalition the entire war, but it hit its forefront when signatures were being gathered for peace terms that were being hidden from the rest of the coalition aside from the New Pacific Order. This left bitter tastes in many alliance mouths, most of whom refused to hand over their signatures until the "hidden peace terms" were brought out to light. Finally, the document was signed and the "Competence Coalition" faced only a single surrender term:
1) Admit their defeat and surrender to their respective combatants facing them from the collective forces of Anarchy Inc, the Independent Republic of Orange Nations, The Order of Righteous Nations, Argent, Molon Labe, The Grand Lodge of Freemasons, Aurora Borealis, the Global Order of Darkness, R&R, the Nuclear Proliferation League, the Random Insanity Alliance, Delusions of Grandeur, the Mostly Harmless Alliance, Sparta, Farkistan, the Coalition of Royal Allied Powers, the Christian Coalition of Countries, the Multicolored Cross-X Alliance, the North Atlantic Defense Coalition, the Apparatus, The Templar Knights, the Zulu Alliance, Sengoku, The Empire of the New Evolution, The Outlaws Republic, the New Pacific Order, The Imperial Order, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Nusantara Elite Warriors, The Phoenix Federation, Death Before Dishonor, the Dark Templar, Nebula-X, the Libertarian Socialist Federation, Ragnarok, Invicta, the New Polar Order, Avalanche, The Legion, Cult of Justita, Confederatio Aesir, SNAFU, The Grämlins, the Union of Communist Republics, the League of Small Superpowers, the Federation of Armed Nations, Guru Order, the Pirates of the Parrot Order, United Equestria, and the Global Democratic Alliance, hereby referred to as the "Equilibrium Coalition".
The Equilibrium Coalition and all Umbrella Coalition alliances agree to immediately cease hostilities with each other. Any nations which jumped to "splinter" or other such alliances during this war who decide to continue war will be treated as rogues by all parties to this document.
Declarations of WarEdit
- January 24, 2013 - VE declare war on Ai
- January 26, 2013 - VE recognizes a state of war with NPO
- January 26, 2013 - TENE and TOR declare war on VE
- January 28, 2013 - IRON declare war on VE
- January 29, 2013 - Deinos declare war with NPO
- Feburary 2, 2013 - PPO declare war on VE
- March 26, 2013 - Umbrella & allies surrender to Equilibrium
This war was a savage one on both sides. The Viridian Entente (2nd) held the advantage in tech numbers and were successfully able to deal more damage because of it to their attackers, however, our side held numerical superiority and were able to turn what was seen as the fairest battlefield of the war, into a complete tide in our favor. It was a bloody war, but we walked out with our heads raised and thank VE for a fun and respectful battle.
