The Conclave (ConC) is a small alliance that resides on the Black team. It was founded on March 17, 2010, after several months of planning, and signed a protectorate treaty with Argent on the same date.
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.
