The Order of the Yellow Turban
Merged into BoSS
The OYT was born into a chaotic world. Formed in the midst of a World War, they were conceived into a brand new team. It started with Moochie of Nektulos on the very day new colors were created. He wa sa mighty nation with over 3k strength. He was in a small time alliance that was nearly dead. He wasn't involved at all.
He gathered 2 friends in an IRC Channel, #OYT on irc.esper.net server. They debated voer names and eventually settled on the Order of the Yellow Turban. The name is from an ancient Chienese Rebellion which plagued the Han Dynasty.
OYT got started on their forums shown here. They quickly abosrbed the first Yellow Allaince led by Soigacas. They then absorbed another small yellow alliance.
OYT quickly began to grow and prosper. Moochie and GooeyToast were the Consuls. Xigbar was Praetor Urbanus. Hop Along23 narrowly won Praetor Preregrenus. But then something happened that would rock OYT's world to the core.
The War on Terror
HopAlong23, the Praetor Peregrenus (PP), knew a man going by helios. They were speaking on yahoo messenegr about cn. Heliso told Hop he was in a secret, underground alliance. They were plottign to destroy Federation since Federation had merged with their former alliance. They began to spy on Federation. They made an MDP with OYT and planned to use them to fight Federation. They would fight hard but lose. Then, emerging form the shadows, TPL, The praetorian Legio, would strike.
Against a weakened Federation, they intended a swift victory. They would then set themselves up as the dominators of maroon team. However, Helios did not know Hop would be loyal and report the actions to a lwoer Praetor and clsoe friend, Primus. Primus and HOp then called an IRC conference with the Consuls.
Moochie, acting extremely competent and ably, ordered a letter written to Darth Caesar, the Leader, offering the chane to explain himself. He ably ordered the MDP suspended indefinitely. Moochie set the cogs in motion for genius act.
After Darth Caesar faield to explian adequetly, the OYt thru Henderson declared war on the Praetorian legio. Federation unofficially followed and most of TPL was mincemeat. MArcos Himself, a high rnaking TPLer, joined the International Dmeocratic League. OYT and Federation declared war, yet not a shot was fired. IDL meekly handed over Marcos.
DC and one of the lower TPlers, Smauels, joiend the Axis Powers Alliance. Assured they would be well watched and takne care of, OYT declared peace. Marcos Hismellf and The Biz are still enemeis however.
The charter of OYT is as follows:
