In such a case the joining alliance shall add its own signatures to the bloc agreement and will adhere to the terms below, or be subject to expulsion from the bloc. SHIELD was conceptualised by UBD and WAR, and was formally signed with ISCO in November 2007. On the 5th of December '07 Senzai-Ishiki Menrui joined SHIELD. On the 12th of January '08 Prussia joined the bloc but 3 days later on the 15th on January was expelled because of unruly behaviour, slanderous comments to alliance leaders and destroying part of the SHIELD forums. Also on the 15th of January the ISCO resigned from SHIELD. Soon after the Prussian debacle the remaining alliances decided it was best to disband SHIELD in private. As of January 2008, this Bloc has been dissolved.
