IN COUNCIL, ELGEAN DAY 2799

The unanimous Declaration of the founding members of The Elgean Alliances (TEA)
When in the course of Elgean events it becomes necessary for people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all Elgeans are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Alliances are instituted among Men, Elves, Dwarves and Orcs, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, - That whenever any Form of Alliance becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Alliances, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Alliances long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Alliances, and to provide new safeguards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present Kings of Land Claims is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

-They have refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good and game continuance

-They have refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish to subjugation, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

-They have called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the people of Elgea, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with their measures.

-They have dissolved areas of influence repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

-They have refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to let others to return, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to areas on ie People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

-They have endeavoured to prevent the population of these areas of influence; for that purpose, obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

- They have obstructed the Administration of Trade by making Laws for establishing Trade Cartels.

-They have made Alliances dependent on their Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

-They have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their silversteel.

- They have kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies with the purpose of malice

- They have affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Peaceful Power.

- They have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

- For quartering large bodies of armed troops secretly among us:

- For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

- For cutting off our Trade with all parts of silversteel

-For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent in cases of surrender

-For depriving us in many cases, of the dignity of unharrowed exodus

-For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

- For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

- For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

- They have abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of their Protection and waging War against us.

- They have plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

- They are, at this time, transporting large Armies to complete the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Heads of civilized nations

- they have constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

- They have excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of The Elgean Alliance, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good King Sigurd, solemnly publish and declare, That this united Alliance will, clear all of Elgea of Aggressive Land Claims and give them areas of influence; break any trade cartels seeking to dominate through threat of force; curtail unwarranted wars for the sake of domination and destruction; treat all humans, elves, dwarves and orcs with respect and dignity should they join The Elgean Alliance,; encourage the devs and players to have tournaments on a regular basis; and to keep Illyriad, the game we all love, a place of solace, fun and friendship— And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Writing only for myself I, Lagavulin, agree with the intent and like the geeky cleverness of the declaration but prefer my own rule.  "As you play, don't be a dick."

I would urge any alliance that feels that it has been intimidated, threatened by the alliance grouping known as the SINDICATE to sign up to this BUT only as associated members because in Illyriad  this declaration can be interpreted as absolute. As everyone knows "absolute power can corrupt absolutely" Handshake
