The official Charter of The Conclave can be found [http://www.theconclave-cn.net/index.php?topic=477.0 here].
  +
==Official Policies==
  +
===War===
  +
Above all, The Conclave is a peaceful alliance. All members joining The Conclave must agree to never attack a target unless specifically ordered to do so. As a whole, The Conclave will avoid alliance wars, unless it or a direct ally is under credible threat.
   
===Preamble===
+
===Diplomacy===
In the beginning was chaos, and chaos ruled all. Amidst a world in turmoil, one man pushed aside the banner of darkness and pledged freedom to all mankind. That man, our Emperor, left this world to protect us from the next. It is in the name of the One True Emperor of Man that the Conclave was forged. The light shall be brought forth, the darkness quenched, and our Holy Warriors shall bring freedom to all mankind. The Conclave shall spread the Emperor's Holy Will to all nations, all shall see the truth. Behold the Conclave.
+
Since The Conclave is peaceful to all alliances, it is willing to improve relations with all alliances. This is usually done in the form of Peace, Information, and Aid Treaties (PIATs). While The Conclave will also sign binding defensive treaties, it does so very carefully and only with alliances that are similarly interested in upholding peace.
 
===Article I: Membership===
 
Members of the Conclave are those nations that have successfully completed the application process and have been accepted by the Administratum or their designate.
 
 
===Article II: Government===
 
 
====Section A: The Administratum====
 
The Administratum is the highest governing body of man, second only to the Emperor himself. Its members are given the task of directing the fate of all mankind.
 
 
=====Section A(1): Grand Master=====
 
The Grand Master is given the opportunity to serve as leader and spokes person of the Conclave. It is the duty of the Grand Master to oversee all aspects in the governing of the Conclave. In emergency situations, the Grand Master, with the approval of at least one other member of the Administratum, may assume the position of Supreme Commander of the Conclave. Emergency powers are limited to a time until the Administratum can adjoin and may not exceed 72 hours.
 
 
=====Section A(2): Auxiliary Grand Master=====
 
It is in the duty of the Auxiliary Grand Master to assist in overseeing all things relating to the governing of the Conclave. If the Grand Master is away for a period of time that threatens the continuity of leadership in the Administratum, the Auxiliary Grand Master is to be made Grand Master interim until such time the Grand Master is able to return.
 
 
=====Section A(3): Warmaster=====
 
The Warmaster is charged with handling the war machine of the Conclave. It is the duty of the Warmaster to oversee the defense and conquests of man. He will work closely with the Grand Master and the other members of the Administratum to ensure the security and prosperity of devout nations.
 
 
=====Section A(4): Master Envoy=====
 
 
The Master Envoy is head ambassador of the Conclave. It is within his words and actions that the holy task of spreading the name of the Emperor to all mankind is placed. It is the duty of the Master Envoy to assist the Grand Master in the building and maintenance of inter-alliance relationships, including written inter-alliance agreements.
 
 
=====Section A(5): Master Provost=====
 
The Master Provost is given the task of maintaining affairs within the Conclave. This includes, but is not limited to, the maintenance and acceptance of members as well as the overseeing of internal organizations.
 
 
====Section B: Praefectum (Praefectus)====
 
The members of the Administratum will be required to perform numerous and sometimes tedious undertakings. It is with this understanding that the creation of a prefectus may be necessary. Praefectum may be appointed by members of the Administratum to act as close proxies of the appointing governor. Praefectum should be monitored in their duties by the Administratum and should never be considered as equal or in a higher power as any individual within the Administratum.
 
 
====Section C: Ordinates====
 
In keeping with the spirit and hard work put into all of which man has created, the Administratum and its designates may find it suitable to appoint additional staff. Ordinates should be closely monitored in their duties by the Administratum and may never be considered as equal or in a higher power as any individual within the Administratum.
 
 
===Article III: Elections===
 
The members of the Administratum are elected officials. The election process shall begin the second Tuesday of designated months and last 96 hours. Elections shall begin at such a time in which the founding Administratum find the Conclave structurally sound and in no danger, be there a change of power.
 
 
===Article IV: Impeachment and Banishment===
 
 
====Section A: Impeachment====
 
Should any member of the Administratum become suspect to wrongdoing with the potential of harming the Conclave in any way, shape, or form, he may be impeached. Any member may petition for an impeachment. If 25% of the membership agrees, a vote will be held. If the governor in question fails to confirm with 50% +1 of the vote in his favor, he shall be removed from office. The remaining Administratum will appoint an interim and an emergency election will promptly ensue.
 
 
====Section B: Banishment====
 
Should any member of the Conclave be found to have committed heinous crimes against the Conclave and the Emperor, he may be banished. Banishment is determined by a unanimous vote of the Administratum.
 
   
===Article V: Amendments===
+
==History==
To survive in the constantly evolving world of Terra, the membership may propose amendments to this charter at any time and pass with a two-thirds approval of the entire member base. If passed by membership, the Administratum reserves the right to veto any amendment by unanimous vote.
+
===Founding===
  +
The Conclave was created on March 17, 2010 as a multi-colored alliance. Its founders, Synesi and Austindel, were no strangers to governing in online games, as they had worked together as successful alliance leaders in another online game. Thanks to his connections, Austindel was able to secure a Protectorate with the medium sized alliance Argent. The Conclave was small, but it now had the safety it needed to grow.
   
===Article VI: Military Policy===
+
===The Dark Ages===
Any unwarranted declaration of war made against an individual member of the Conclave will be treated as a declaration of war against the Conclave itself. Members are only allowed to attack nations which are deemed by the Warmaster and Administratum rogue and/or are on the Conclave ZI list. Any unapproved attacks on any nations by members of the Conclave will be dealt with to the full extent of the law.
+
Growth, however, was not so easy. Cybernations was already a well established game, and it was difficult to convince members to join the fledgling alliance with great dreams but no numbers to back them up. Weeks without substantial growth turned to months, and eventually the alliance even began to decline as its members either lost interest or were forced to quit due to complications in the real world. In April 2010, an even greater loss occurred, as Austindel, The Conclave’s founding member, was forced to quit to spend more time with his new job. The Conclave was left in the hands of Synesi and James Spanier, the new second-in-command. This government was severely understaffed and its members were unenthused – things were bleak indeed for The Conclave.
   
===Article VII: Nuclear Weapons===
+
===Some Sirius AcTi-on===
No Conclave nation may engage in a nuclear first strike without prior authorization by the Warmaster or his praefectum. If a Conclave nation is the victim of a nuclear first strike, the use of nuclear weapons is authorized against the offending nation without any higher approval. A nuclear first strike is considered to be the use of nuclear weapons, or the use of spies to disable nuclear weapons, whether successful or not.
+
The Conclave first became diplomatically relevant in mid-November, when AcTi, an alliance with whom The Conclave recently signed an Optional Defense Pact with, declared war on The Killer Turtle Brigade. As a result, the ODAP Bloc known as Sirius declared on AcTi. Despite only signing an ODP, outside spectators wondered if The Conclave would join the conflict. This speculation was unnecessary, as The Conclave had already told AcTi that they would not join the conflict even before AcTi declared. When The Conclave announced this on the OWFs, it was generally declared a good move. Some members, however, were disappointed that The Conclave did not use this opportunity to blow a small conflict into a global war. The Conclave maintained its desire for global peace, and even received a small taste of OWF relevance.

As November came to a close, the government of The Conclave had realized that major changes were needed. After months with virtually no growth, Synesi and James Spanier talked with the few active members that remained, and agreed that a new charter was necessary. The Charter would maintain a strong central government, but still give the majority of power to a democratic Senate. This central government became a Triumvirate, with Synesi, James Spanier, and Htmlmaster serving as Triumvirs. After weeks of deliberation, the new charter was ratified on December 14, 2010. The charter not only made the government more effective, it revitalized the entire community. In early January, an enormous recruitment campaign began, with members sending out recruitment PMs to every unaligned nation created each day, every day. One month and thousands of messages later, The Conclave had gained more members than it did during its first nine months of existence. By the end of February, The Conclave had tripled in size. The alliance that seemed doomed to the realm of mediocrity was now one of the fastest growing entities on the Planet Bob.

Official PoliciesEdit

WarEdit

Above all, The Conclave is a peaceful alliance. All members joining The Conclave must agree to never attack a target unless specifically ordered to do so. As a whole, The Conclave will avoid alliance wars, unless it or a direct ally is under credible threat.

Since The Conclave is peaceful to all alliances, it is willing to improve relations with all alliances. This is usually done in the form of Peace, Information, and Aid Treaties (PIATs). While The Conclave will also sign binding defensive treaties, it does so very carefully and only with alliances that are similarly interested in upholding peace.

HistoryEdit

FoundingEdit

The Conclave was created on March 17, 2010 as a multi-colored alliance. Its founders, Synesi and Austindel, were no strangers to governing in online games, as they had worked together as successful alliance leaders in another online game. Thanks to his connections, Austindel was able to secure a Protectorate with the medium sized alliance Argent. The Conclave was small, but it now had the safety it needed to grow.

The Dark AgesEdit

Growth, however, was not so easy. Cybernations was already a well established game, and it was difficult to convince members to join the fledgling alliance with great dreams but no numbers to back them up. Weeks without substantial growth turned to months, and eventually the alliance even began to decline as its members either lost interest or were forced to quit due to complications in the real world. In April 2010, an even greater loss occurred, as Austindel, The Conclave’s founding member, was forced to quit to spend more time with his new job. The Conclave was left in the hands of Synesi and James Spanier, the new second-in-command. This government was severely understaffed and its members were unenthused – things were bleak indeed for The Conclave.

Some Sirius AcTi-onEdit

The Conclave first became diplomatically relevant in mid-November, when AcTi, an alliance with whom The Conclave recently signed an Optional Defense Pact with, declared war on The Killer Turtle Brigade. As a result, the ODAP Bloc known as Sirius declared on AcTi. Despite only signing an ODP, outside spectators wondered if The Conclave would join the conflict.

Some members, however, were disappointed that The Conclave did not use this opportunity to blow a small conflict into a global war. The Conclave maintained its desire for global peace, and even received a small taste of OWF relevance.

A New HopeEdit

As November came to a close, the government of The Conclave had realized that major changes were needed. After months with virtually no growth, Synesi and James Spanier talked with the few active members that remained, and agreed that a new charter was necessary. The Charter would maintain a strong central government, but still give the majority of power to a democratic Senate. This central government became a Triumvirate, with Synesi, James Spanier, and Htmlmaster serving as Triumvirs. After weeks of deliberation, the new charter was ratified on December 14, 2010. The charter not only made the government more effective, it revitalized the entire community.
