The idea for TKTB came from a long running joke in The Sasori Initiative about what James Maximus wanted his strike team in the SIDF called. Shogun Tokugawa asked James what he would like it to be called and thus the idea for TKTB was born, but laid dormant for many months. When James decided it was time to leave his home in TSI and create something of his own he talked to db00, a long time Turtle supporter and the two got to work on what would soon be known to planet bob as TKTB.
On October 27, 2009 James Maximus, with the help of db00 and Polaris posted the Declaration of Existence for TKTB. The 3 man AA soon grew as friends of the founders joined from the different corners of the cyberverse, ending up at 10 members when everyone that was expected to join had done so. From that point TKTB grew to 500k NS in just 2 1/2 months and upgraded their protectorate with NpO into a MDoAP.
Second Unjust WarEdit
Soon after The Second Unjust War would break out and throw all of Planet Bob into a global war. On their 90th day of existence TKTB declared war on The Finnish Cooperation Organization in defense of Polaris. The Turtles suffered minimal damage during the conflict and came out with more NS than when they went in. After five days of conflict white peace was declared with all parties involved on the NpO-Stickmen front ending TKTBs involvement in the war.
Slow and Steady wins the race... SiriuslyEdit
After the Second Unjust War TKTB experienced a golden age of sorts, expanding relations with many alliances and alliance wide growth. It was then that James Maximus started looking for other blue alliances to create a blue team unity oDoAP bloc that is now known as Sirius. Afterwards TKTB signed an MDoAP with The Imperial Order due to the friendship gained through Sirius. Sirius didn't expand as planed but instead became a group of close knit friends, after a while the Imperial Assault Alliance joined the ranks of Sirius.
