Declaration of Existence![]

276 days ago...

An Alliance was formed - The Paladins of Freedom.

PoF under the protection of Legion with bonds of Friendship with Olympus and Quantum grew, prospered and became a part of the Great Purple Unity Community, assisting with Valhalla Rebuild, Joining Peace and trading in tech when ever possible.

We stand up for the little guys, even sending aid to lone nations who were wrongly attacked by people in our own alliance... and of course reeducating those that were wrong in their ways.

The Paladins of Freedom, lived with Honor and that belief in Honor and Truth will be maintained in all our charters and our hearts for ever! But, in the course of life we come to moments where we realize we need to change in order to thrive.

This need to change is upon us, and with thanks to our protectors The Legion we are renaming, reforming even reinvigorating our selves for the needs of today.

Therefore Today under the Massive Protection of BAPS Through the Custodia Celeris – Pegasus protecting new-upstart alliances agreement, I have the Esteemed Pleasure to Announce the transformation of PoF into...

The Atlantic Confederation.
