The Freehold was formed as the result of a merger between The Ironborn, The Mages Guild, and The Mechanicus by Maegor, Marco Esse, General Gorgoth, and Daario Naharis on March 5th, 2017. It formally announced its existence on the Cyber Nations forums on March 12th, 2017.
Charter of The Freehold
The Freehold of Valyria: the center of the world, the home of dragons, the forges by which the strongest swords are created.
Liberty, brotherhood, strength. From the fires of Valyria comes the strength of The Ironborn, the magic of the Mages, and the sophistication of The Mechanicus.
We three peoples -- the bloodthirsty reavers, the mystical Mages, and the inventors and innovators of The Mechanicus realm – all declare that we unite ourselves under the single banner of The Freehold.
We shall defend the principles of liberty, of brotherhood, and of strength. We proclaim our adherence to the Valyrian Code: each man free, each man loyal to his brothers, and each man loyal to the Freehold. We proclaim our loyalty to one another, now banded as one, as of this day: March 5th, 2017.
Fire and Blood.
