|Something or Other Accords|
The Something or Other Accords is a Mutual Defence and Optional Aggression Pact signed between the Mushroom Kingdom and Global Order of Darkness on 12 June 2010. This is the second time a treaty of this name has been signed between these two Alliances.
The treaty was cancelled during Gunnergate, when the Mushroom Kingdom cancelled all of their existing treaties. It was not resigned.
