History[edit | edit source]
Following the completion of Great War III, KasMage, former GATO member and former High Chancellor of the CIS, began working with Witmore, a member of the Green Protection Agency and former member and Vice Chancellor of the CIS, to outline a possible new alliance to be named The Order of Halsa. A number of weeks of planning, organization, and possible opening members began, and following the completion of KasMage's resignation from the Viridian Entente and Witmore's resignation from the CIS, The Order of Halsa was born.
It opened to quick membership from Fuhrer Stafford, Josh the Great, MoAIA (formerly Levi), and calebjohnsonm. The first High Council was soon established with KasMage as High Magistrate, Witmore in the Vice Magistrate position, Josh the Great as Minister of Defense, Gedvoru the Minister of External Affairs, calebjohnsonm as Minister of Recruitment, and Fuhrer Stafford as the Minister of Finance. On May 22, 2007, the charter was ratified and The Order of Halsa became official in its existence.
Recruitment began early on and it helped grow the alliance to over thirty members in just over a week's time. Some of the more notable early grabs included Opal the Goat, Maliciousman, and GrimMaster. Soon after the initial burst, MoAIA left Norden Verein and joined The Order of Halsa, almost immediately being declared the Assistant Minister of Defense. A complete reworking of the Ministry of Defense took place, and soon after, Luis Voltaire, Archon, and Wraith (Zessa) joined The Order of Halsa as well. A banking program began to be organized, and Archon worked out a plan for a new organization to the Ministry of External Affairs. It appeared as if things would be working out extremely well.
It was here that the first political move occurred, involving a former business relationship that KasMage had opened with President Smith when he was an ambassador from the Viridian Entente to Smith's alliance, the Imperial Blue Covenant. A mutual defense pact, The New Era, was soon signed, creating the first, and still the strongest, diplomatic relationship between TOH and another alliance.
Despite positive relationships though, things were not as well as they seemed in The Order. Rumors began to spread about TOH being on an attack list of the GGA, along with a number of other alliances. In an attempt to remove TOH from the list, KasMage and Witmore were forced to resign, and both went to the GPA. Gedvoru took charge as the High Magistrate and began working to hold the alliance together as Archon, Zessa, and Luis Voltaire returned to Norden Verein, Josh the Great returned to CIS to help them rebuild after the recent Green Civil War, and calebjohnsonm went to the GPA. It seemed that the alliance was in trouble, but Gedvoru, the High Magistrate and recent membership from Druid, former Minister of Internal Affairs of the CIS, and a surprise sign-up from Zocane, former High Magistrate of the CIS helped hold the alliance together and fill all of TOH's Ministerial positions.
Tragedy soon struck though. MoAIA, using forum administration powers given to him during the reorganization of the Ministry of Defense, removed all of the forums and nearly all of the topics, leaving the boards of The Order of Halsa in a near dead state. It was not long before the boards were reorganized though.
Soon after though, KasMage decided to make a return to The Order. A complete surprise oddity occurred as Gedvoru resigned from The Order, placing KasMage back in the High Magistrate position. Calebjohnsonm soon returned as well to fill the missing spot in TOH. KasMage announced a new High Council for the month after Gedvoru's resignation, placing Zocane in the Vice Magistrate position, Maliciousman in the Ministry of Defense, Opal the Goat in the Ministry of Recruitment, Fuhrer Stafford in the Ministry of Finance, and Jack in the Ministry of External Affairs. Things were back in order, and more efficient than ever before.
A new relationship began to blossom as well, as the IBC, the DLP, and TOH signed a three-way MDP, The Tergeminus Paragon Accords. Around the same time, the Mostly Harmless Alliance signed a nonaggression pact with TOH as well. The two new treaties established that the Halsan Ministry of External Affairs, despite losing the experience of Archon, was in full swing.
In July Halsa was forced to cancel they TOH-MHA NAP. This was due to the MHA's signing of the Aquatic Shield Treaty which stated that is overruled NAPs. July was also a very slow month of growth for Halsa. But July was kind to Halsa, too. Halsa signed a Protocol for the Elimination of Armed Conflict and Espionage (PEACE Treaty) with their good friends, The Brigade. After many weeks of discussion a FEAR-TOH NAP was signed, but the greatest moment in July for Halsa was the signing of the Medjar Treaty, a MDP with Nueva Vida.
August 2007 will either be forgotten or remembered as a time of great inactivity and decline. The forum activity nearly ceased as the Order began a slow bleeding of members. August did see the merger of Halsa's two oldest allies, DLP and IBC, into one alliance, GOD.
While September will be remembered as a month of great change throughout the Cyberverse this will be especially true in Halsa. In early September the two highest-ranking members of Halsa, KasMage and Zocane, informed The Order that they would be retiring. KasMage would remain a member of Halsa and keep his nation; while Zocane left the game entirely. Before leaving, KasMage organized a recruitment drive that nearly eliminated Halsan inactivity and eventually led it to the 100+ members mark. A membership split also occurred, with Jtkode resigning from Halsa to start his own alliance, TOTAS. Jtkode managed to recruit 3 important members from Halsa: Porkers, The Great Beat, and Mancala. The TOTAS split gained members fast, and was the cause of much unrest amongst the High Council of Halsa.
With the outbreak of the Unjust War, no alliance could claim a more awkward position then The Order of Halsa. Halsa's two allies, GOD and NV, were on opposing sides with NV supporting one side due to their MADP with NoV, and GOD supporting the Unjust Path due to their MDP with GOONS. As if that was not enough, FEAR, a friend and NAP partner of Halsa, later declared war on GOD with what was deemed by Halsan leadership to be a very weak casus belli. Halsa voted on and initialized a cancellation of the nonaggression pact and declared its neutrality. As the war finally ended days later, Halsa enacted the Great Economic Mobilization which was used to help pay off reparations required of GOD by FEAR in GOD's peace treaty.
On October 1, KasMage and Zocane resigned from their positions. Gen Beagle was appointed to Vice Magistrate, and succeeded KasMage upon his resignation. Gen Beagle then appointed Opal the Goat to fill the now-vacant Vice Magistrate position. Almost immediately after appointment, Opal the Goat became extremely inactive, leaving Gen Beagle as the only active Magistrate. After a few slow weeks, Halsa kicked it into gear. After several weeks of bad relations with Halsa, the government members of TOTAS began a series of raids on MOON and an ACDC protectorate. Facing ZI, Jtkode approached Gen Beagle and asked if TOTAS would be allowed to merge into Halsa. Over the next 12 hours, Gen Beagle, KasMage, and Jtkode agreed on terms with ACDC, TOTAS, MOON, and TOH, and TOTAS was absorbed by Halsa.
Reunited, the membership of Halsa became increasingly active and many quality members arose. Through November and December, nothing but progress was made. Aid falls were organized and executed. Recruitment ran smooth with Jtkode as the head of the Recruitment Council. In January, Porkers returned to The Order of Halsa and quickly worked his way up the ladder.Another merge was announced and the Blue Protection Agency(BPA) was absorbed into Halsa. But then tragedy struck. KasMage, in a single ill-fated moment, made a wise crack about the Emperor of the NPO in a public channel, and was sentenced to perma-ZI. February saw the rise of one member, Porkers, to Vice Magistrate, and the decline of another: Druid. Druid was deeply effected by the loss of KasMage, and seemed to withdraw. His secretary, Lord Vachon, showed exceptional skill as a diplomat.
Trouble arose at the end of March, as it was uncovered that Druid had been working in the underground against the New Pacific Order, unbeknownst to the rest of the alliance. Druid was quickly expelled and ZIed, but The Order of Halsa prepared for the worst nonetheless. 48 tense hours later, the situation resolved peacefully. April saw a huge decline in The Order of Halsa. Gen Beagle became very inactive, and Porkers was left as the only active Magistrate. Over the month of April, Halsa lost 30 members.
May saw the return of Gen Beagle, but the resignation of Porkers. The downward spiral continued. A new charter was drafted, and Halsa was invited to the Maroon trading sphere by the GOD. The new charter, along with a new flag, and the new team color, became official on Halsa's one year birthday, as did an operation to catch and kill the ghosts hiding in Halsa's ranks.
June saw the return of Masterof9puppets and some nuclear weapons growth.But most notably was the Protectorate agreement with Farkistan which would show to be a good treaty as the advisory from Nuke Me Please and Captain Impavid was the second to none and the friendship created was strong. July brought in a few very good members notably Bossface,Mancala and Bxrebelss. Although activity was suffering a bit.
August was a mixed month with the good news a new charter being ratified on the 9th of August and Halsa reached a milestone 100 Nukes.The bad news came from the departures of 4 respected members,DLPKhorne to GOD,White Majik to Farkistan, Masterof9puppets to The Dark Templars and Jtkode to The Dark Templars.The next day saw the return of Jtkode. The government in August was changed a record 3 times due to the departures and resignations. Halsa saw many new faces on the government and they have done a fantastic job to date.
September saw heated debate in Halsa. The four week expulsion policy took its first real victim. Acciles was dumbfounded when he was attacked by Bossface and didn't understand why. He was inactive and was one of the first targets of the 4 week expulsion policy. He quickly went on the forums to resolve the situation to learn just that. This arouse a question within the alliance, is the 4-week policy good for the growth of Halsa? All but Jtkode stood by this policy and he threatened (in good will) to leave the alliance if the policy was not put up to a vote and he also called this the "Halsan Civil War". He soon realized however that the alliance would not budge and so he stayed in The Order of Halsa, resuming his position as Minister of Foreign Affairs. September could also be defined as a roller coaster, Halsa hit 800,000 NS again, but lost a great member, jotti, and Halsa was in its rebuilding state once again. White Majik returns from his leave to Farkistan.
The coming month saw great growth in Halsa. Lord Vachon stepped down as High Magistrate and Cressers69 took charge and got halsa to a point where it could grow. During Lord Vachon's rein and the beginning rein of Cressers69 Halsa grew 10, 20, 30+ members in over two weeks with the help of Cosmo777. Some great members that came into TOH were LordressTheJust and lookingtokill (aka Inmate). Halsa had continued this growth and rose above 800k NS to reach 860K NS, and climbing. This month also saw Halsa follow the path of unity in Maroon, joining SPAM. Another great step for The Order was shown in the Teen Titans bloc, serving under the superfriends, it is a pact that united 3 great alliances: The Order of Halsa, The International Protection Agency, and The Armed Coalition of Valor. This pact will serve as the foundation of a great friendship between these alliances, and a greater future for them as well.
November was a month of Huge growth and change within The Order of Halsa. This month saw the leave of Cressers (and his later return) and while he was gone, a massive aid effort went under way. Between Halsa and some outside help, TOH sent out more than 100 million dollars in a ten day period boosting her NS up to 940,000. Cressers appointed Jtkode to his position, but within 10 days he came back. Jtkode decided after months of being in a government position that it was his time to leave and sit on the sidelines. Cressers then at the beginning of December reclaimed the throne of High Magistrate. This month also saw the return of DLPK, a valued former member of TOH, and a great surge of activity brought our total NS by the end of the month to 980,000K and an average NS of almost 10k NS.
December saw the departure of valued members including Gen Beagle, Earl McMann, and Roy Mcmann. They left to join U Hlien, a new alliance founded by Gen Beagle. Soon after, both Earl McMann and Roy Mcmann left U Hlien to join the Green Protection Agency. On December 8, The Order of Halsa signed The ZI Peace Pact. On February 21, Earl McMann returned to The Order of Halsa. Roy McMann has also since returned to the Order. (March 15)
The coming months saw great instability in Halsa, many members left in this hazy phase of Halsan history but soon Halsa began to stabalize, Lenard, the new High Magistrate of Halsa began to reconstruct the alliance. Though it may be weaker now, Halsa is on the road to stability and a new Order is emerging, a better halsa in which people will admire.
During the Karma War Halsa was asked by her allies to declare war on the UPN allaince. It was a swift victory week later UPN was defeated withdrew from the Karma War. After declaring peace with UPN Halsa where immediately asked to assist her allies in the teen titans and superfriends pact. Halsa fought hard and IRON lost a few million NS. After an epic battle peace terms where made. In the end IRON now has to pay TOH 2,500 technology in reps. As well as reps to the others that fought IRON.
