Vires Noctu Charter Edit
Born out of darkness, cast out amongst the star cluttered sky and bathed in the blood of brotherhood, we the sovereign nations of Vires Noctu (VN) coalesce to unveil the sacred parchment on which the holy charter is written. It is by these words we live, by this code of unity, strength and diplomacy we thrive.
Article I: Entrance into Vires Noctu
Any nation interested is granted permission to apply for acceptance into Vires Noctu, however this does not necessarily grant all nations entrance into the alliance. Conditions to be met for membership are as follows:
A) Recruit shall post a new topic that includes their nation name, ruler name, previous alliance (if applicable), and whether they are on any ZI lists.
Recruit shall not be in any wars, nor a member of any ZI/PZI/EZI lists. However if you are, and your crime is not terribly severe, Vires Noctu will lend our voice on your behalf to remove you from said alliance's bad graces. More on ZI lists will be discussed later.
C) All members gaining entrance into Vires Noctu are required to sell tech. VN recognizes it to be a fast way to grow in size and therefore requires it for the betterment of the alliance.
D) Member shall complete the Vires Noctu oath upon completion of probationary period. oath is as follows:
"I (ruler name here) of (nation name here) do hereby pledge to uphold the charter of Vires Noctu and the laws contained within. I will recognize the necessity of differing opinion, but with always treat my brothers and foreign rulers with respect. So it shall be written."
E) In order to promote strength and unity within The Brotherhood of Vires Noctu the below mandates are hereby set forth and will be enforced.
All nations under 2,999 infra will sell technology to larger nations within The Brotherhood. Selling tech is not only beneficial to the smaller nations but also to Vires Noctu.
All nations above 3,000 infra will maintain a tech level which is equal to or greater than 25% of their infrastructure. So for example: Nations infra is 6,000 their tech level must be maintained at a minimum of 1,500.
F) Probationary period consists of the time it takes for you to apply and complete any questions presented by current members. This period will last no longer than three days.
G) Any member may resign from VN providing he has not accepted official aid in the past thirty days, and posts a resignation thread in the appropriate forum.
Article II: Hierarchy of the Night
Section I: The Dark Council
The Dark Council shall be comprised of three members in good standing with the interest of the brotherhood at heart. Collectively The Dark Council will be the acting authority within VN, and will be given the power to appoint the members of the Dread Ministry. These appointments shall be nominated by the Council member presiding over that area, and agreed on with a 2/3 majority vote. The Dark Council shall decide all matters of foreign and domestic policy, war and peace declarations with the advisement of the Dread Ministry. The Dark Council shall be comprised of: The Eye of Midnight:
Shall be the driving force behind the external affairs of VN. The Eye is the head of diplomacy and chief negotiator during war times and peace. The Eye retains power over the diplomatic branches of VN and has the power to appoint The Dread Minister of Enchantment and The Dread Minister of Indoctrination. The Eye is also one of the voting members of the Hierarchy of Night.
The Soul of Midnight:
Shall be the proverbial linchpin of all internal workings. The Soul is the head of internal affairs, including but not limited to establishing trades, tech deals and other economic dealings, along with moving along the contests and festivals celebrating the Darkest Night. The Soul is charged with appointing The Dread Minister of Coffers along with The Dread Minister of Internal Design. The Soul represents the second of the voting members of the Hierarchy of Night.
The Wrath of Midnight:
Shall be the fire and brimstone controlling the forces that make up the Celestial Horde. The Wrath is charged with appointing the Dread Minister of War, along with having final word over the commanders of each Horde. He shall over see military projects and shall be the last of the voting members of The Hierarchy of Night.
Section II: The Dread Ministry
The Dread Ministry shall be comprised of five offices specializing in one of the many facets of VN. These positions shall be filled by a two- thirds majority vote amongst the Dark Council. Their positions are valuable as they provide advise to The Dark Council on all alliance matters. The members of the Dread Ministry may appoint Junior Dread Ministers to aid in their tasks. The Ministry shall be able to over rule any decision made by the Dark Council, excluding war declarations and treaty signings, if they attain a 4 of 5 majority. This is to provide checks and balances amongst the brotherhood and to promote unity in us all.
Dread Minister of Enchantment:
The second in command of the FA workings of VN. Works together with The Eye to put VN in the best position. Handles diplomatic appointments and may remove diplomats at any time. Ensures activity amongst diplomats and may act as The Eye if The Eye is absent in the case of an emergency decision. This shows the trust that resides amongst our brotherhood.
Dread Minister of Internal Design:
Works with The Soul to create and maintain forums and internal workings of Vires Noctu. He is charged with the masking of members of all forms on the forums and is responsible for keeping them in working order.
Dread Minister of War:
Works with The Wrath in preparing the Celestial Hordes for battle. Is second in command of the Horde and will work to increase the Hordes knowledge of military affairs. Will ready the forces if needed, and will reward those who work to ever increase the strength of their nation. Will appoint a cabinet to assist in these goals. The DMoW can act in the place of The Wrath if The Wrath is absent in the case of emergency. So is the trust we place in each other.
Dread Minister of the Nocturian Bank:
Works with The Soul to create financial programs, trade programs, tech programs and anything economic in VN. This member may act in the place of The Soul in the event of absence during emergency. Our bonds are never broken.

Each member of the Brotherhood may at any time bring forth a petition to amend the charter so long as it is supported by 2/3 of the Dark Council. At this time, the petition will go to a vote amongst the Brotherhood and shall pass if it reaches 2/3 majority votes.
Any member shall also retain the right to petition any other change so long as it is supported by three of their brothers. At this time, it will be brought before the masses to a vote. A vote gaining 2/3 majority shall be passed.
