The Wolfpack War
RoT was pivotal in the Wolfpack War, as Wolfpack was accused of spying on their alliance; which lead to the supposed uncovering of a spy ring. It is also notable that Realm of Titans had officially declared war but no official peace announcement with Wolfpack had ever been made. However a de facto state of peace existed between the two alliances until RoT's disbandment.
It had also been stated that IRON promised them an unequal portion of their war reparations.
Article I - Membership
At the instant of acceptance, a nation must meet the following criteria as well as complete the alliance's current application at the time:
1) clean or dead war screen
2) no aid slots with an enemy of the Realm of Titans Alliance
3) expressed acceptance by the Secretary of the Interior and/or the Emperor
*All nations under 10k are allowed to complete the Academy and in return will be given $3 million CN as a Graduation Present.*
All members are free to voice their opinions freely on the boards and cannot be punished for doing so. Their posts can, however, be edited to reflect the same content with the removal of profanity. Posts may also be deleted entirely so as to maintain the peace and calm... For Instance, all members have the right to speak freely until they infringe on other members' rights to do the same.
As a member of the Realm of Titans, one must be willing to fight for the alliance. Failure to do so in a time of war will result in that nation being put on the Titans ZI List.
All members wishing to maintain full membership among the Titan Community must maintain an in-game NS of 10k or above. Nations exemplifing the behavior of a Titan and a clear understanding of the game are eligible to be "boosted" and will thus be allowed in before the 10k mark under the promise of reaching the 10k mark after the boost is completed.
All nations under 10k may be admitted to the sister alliance "Titan Academy" til their NS reaches or exceeds 10k. The Titan Academy shall use the same boards as the Realm of Titans Alliance.
A nation may be booted from the alliance by the emperor at any time for the violation of Titan Law after being convicted by the Titan Senate. If the Emperor decides not to boot the member from the alliance, the amount of the fine to be paid will be decided by the Titan Senate and will be paid to the bank of the Director of Banking's Choice.
Members are free to come and go as they wish given that they post in the resigning/leaving forum. In addition, all members who received aid or protection from the Titans must pay back an amount equal to the amount received and/or $15 million CN if the said nation was saved from another alliance by the Titan Community. Otherwise, free passage is granted at all times not including war times.

The Titan Senate
Members of the Titan Community will vote on every odd month for Senator positions. Anyone may run and everyone may vote. To run, a candidate simply needs to start a topic in the Politics Forum under the Senate Candidates sub-forum explaining what they intend to do if elected and state their view points on a few of the important topics of the age. For every 15 Titan Members there will be 1 Senate seat filled; however there is to be a max of 30 Senators. After the vote has been cast, the top X number of names are taken as Senators and are masked as such.
Prime Minister - is the Senator who received the most votes during the election and is responsible for summoning the senators when a vote is needed and is the "lead Senator." His duties are as follows. 1. In the absence of the Emperor for a period of more than one week, the Prime Minister may assume the ordinary administration of the Realm until the emperor returns, resigns, or is deleted, should the Senate deem it necessary. 2.

All votes are held open for a period of 48 hours. Any member who doesn't vote is simply marked as absent and their vote is not counted as "yes" or "no." A simple majority is all that is needed for ANY vote (exception being Impeachment Votes). All votes are held in the "Poll" Forum. All Votes except for the Declarations of War and Impeachment Votes are veto-able by the Emperor.

For a Declaration of War, the Emperor must post on the Titan Forums requesting the Senate to vote on it. From the time of the emperor's post, the vote will be given 48 hours until it ends. After 48 hours, the vote is over, the poll is closed, and the decision stands. There is, however, nothing stopping the Emperor from requesting another vote.
Once a war is declared or a conflict has begun, the Secretary of War is responsible for carrying it out. The coordination of the War/Conflict is between him/her and his/her staff (the Generals).

Amendments are how the charter is to be altered. The Amendments are to be voted on in the Senate and a simple majority vote is all that is need. The vote, however, has to be over material that is "Charter Ready" with the location of the text specified and the text to be removed also specified.
Bills are temporary subjects that carry the force of law but are not added to the charter. They are voted on in the senate and is, again, passed with a simple majority. They, again, must be subject specific and the Bill must be 'word ready.'
