Revision in Progress
After going through the Reign governmental process, the Codes of Honor have been approved. They are now in effect as the inherent rules of the Empire.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ygiHoZNgnh9DLpvlxG_HJ6UtXiUOz_KaE--wyz45PuM/edit?usp=sharing
While I gave the official reason in multiple channels on discord, I did forget to put the announcement of the split from Opean here.
The Official announcement, made 12/06/2017:
Reign will be withdrawing from Opean. After much consideration, I have decided my goals with Reign will be better served as an independent government. Any and all members of Reign who wish to stay with Opean may do so, and I will not hold it against them. Members of Opean are still welcome to hang out in the discord etc, we just will no longer be a single organization. I do hope we will maintain friendly relations into the future.
In more detail:
How we operate:
While the Emperor has final say, the Citizens have a voice. Every major decision (war declaration, major law and policy changes, etc) must first go before the High Council. Unless by universal vote of the council, the decision being made is announced to the Empire, and Citizens are given at least three days to speak their opinions.
You want to fight. But not alone, not for no reason. You want to fight as part of an army, a team. You want to fight with meaning, influence the events of Dual Universe, protect the empire.
You want to be an Admiral, fleets of ships fighting at your word, entire wars controlled by your skill. A Captain, keeping your crew at maximum efficiency, your ship renowned through the systems. An ensign or lieutenant, knowing your team and keeping them at peak efficiency.
You want to be an Engineer, crafting deadly designs of massive proportions, from motherships to cities. A Gunner, great weapons in your hands ripping into enemy ships. A Pilot, everything hinging on your reactions, your skill, your instinct.
The military is for you, Citizen.
While war is the battleground of the military, the civilians of Reign gain their power elsewhere.
You wish to create a great industry, wealth flowing into your pockets as players everywhere marvel at your creations. You wish to open a trade hub, facilitating interactions between other players, profiting on the exchange.
Perhaps you simply wish to create, create awe inspiring, magnificent creations. Spending your time mining and building, or just having fun.
The Civilian sector is your home.
There are no minimum activity requirements to join Reign, military or civilian (though we do ask you follow through if you promise to be on at a certain time). If you aspire to be a military officer, however, activity is required. If you wish to be a true power in the civlian sector, we highly recommend you are active, as well.
Backstory (Work in Progress):
Before the departure of the Arkships, many great wars had been fought. Thousands, to millions, even billions had been slaughtered. But dominating in all the conflict, was a Captain and his Crew. They were unmatched in their combat prowess and bravery, annihilating all challengers. Eventually, their power was so unmatched they were simply titled Reign.
Eventually, as battles became too easy, the Crew of the Reign decided they needed a challenge. When asked to accompany the Arkships, Reign gladly accepted. Now, in a whole new battlezone, we shall Reign.
