Just a Harmless? farmer.

Harmless?

[H?]

Founded By: Kumomoto [H?]
Alliance Capital: SW1-Poodleborough-O1
Founded At: 25 Feb 2010 14:18
Tax Rate: 0 %
Towns: 454
Land Claimed: 5,730

ABOUT US:

We are an alliance of mature strategy players and online gamers. Sharing a long and colorful history, Harmless? members value solidarity through kinship and mutual respect. Where possible, we happily extend these values beyond our borders. He who would speak, speak well and be heard. He who would act, act well or face correction.

Our goals are to thrive in harmony with those who would welcome us, conquer those who would not, set higher standards for skill and integrity, and bring P.E.A.C.E. to the heathens. We enjoy long walks in the mountains, showing new players how the West was tamed, drinking the blood of our enemies, and mature conversation. Turn-offs are intentionally sloppy grammar, boasting, bullying, and weak attempts at psychological or social manipulation.

Regarding our relationship with White, some history.

RECRUITMENT:

Harmless members are active, alert, well-spoken, cooperative and supportive. Harmless is currently open to limited recruiting and will consider strong applicants. Applicants must have a 4 city minimum and reasonable military to be considered. Harmless require a high level of dedication to our alliance from each and every member and this means we expect that each Player's "Main" account should be in Harmless and preferably both Main and Alt for those who have two accounts.

Please contact our recruiter, Starry, if you wish to be considered. Please understand that we cannot promise to respond to every applicant.

POLICIES:

Harmless adheres to the de-facto standard 10-square rule.  To avoid unnecessary conflicts, players who wish to move their cities or settle new ones within 10 squares of an existing Harmless city should contact the owner of the existing city and a Harmless Director or Diplomat prior to initiating the move.  Any player who does not acquire the appropriate permissions in advance may be subject to having the new/relocated city removed by force.

Harmless holds a "minimal ties" policy with regard to inter-alliance treaties.  New diplomatic ties will not be forged except with alliances who are comparable in size, strength, and/or goals to ourselves, in close proximity to us, and already enjoying strong friendly relations.  When we do establish inter-alliance ties, our treaty agreements respect each party's solidarity, internal sovereignty, and continued independence.  Alliances wishing to forge tighter relationships with us should start by establishing a presence in our Embassy with representatives from their leadership and members alike.  Silent diplomatic offers shall be silently ignored.

All players in Illyriad are welcomed to join us in the Embassy at our external forums, http://diggik.com/forum.  After siging up an account there using the exact same username as in-game, contact KillerPoodle or Starry for account authorization and appropriate access based on alliance membership.  Participating alliances will each be granted private subforums where their leadership can speak with our own in confidence.  Wherever possible, Harmless conducts all foreign business and handles all foreign issues through our Embassy.  We are internally led (essentially) as an oligarchy, and as such are best able to address and resolve any issues when foreign parties do us the courtesy of registering for and using our Embassy.  This facilitates shorter response times and granular privacy on all negotiations.  Alliances may designate as many leaders as desired to be their emissaries, so that response times can short in both directions and so that our guests may negotiate on equal footing with as many participants as we employ.

DIPLOMACY:

As an alliance, Harmless seeks to be fair and reasonable in all its dealings wherever possible, and to foster good will with any who would do the same:

  • Harmless does not generally condone actions against active, neutral players--especially smaller players. However, our members may conduct operations at their individual discretion. Where discretion is lacking, the target of these hostilities may have political recourse.
  • Subjects of Harmless hostility not officially sanctioned may be protected by cease-and-decist orders and/or entitled to restitution at the discretion of our Diplomats or Directors. Instigators of such hostility deemed to have acted in bad faith or contrary to our rules of conduct may face punishment ranging from restitution to expulsion, also at our Diplomats' or Directors' discretion.
  • Unprovoked attacks against any Harmless member shall face the full support of this alliance which shall be sustained until such time as equitable resolution is achieved. Any attack against a Harmless member not preceded by grievance filed through diplomatic channels may be treated as unprovoked and exempt from liability of any Harmless member, regardless of prior actions.
  • Harmless considers any and all diplomatic missions against its membership as hostile behavior and reserves the right to respond entirely out of proportion to the instigating event.
  • Alliances often declare or instigate wars without consulting or informing its members, who often have no knowledge of why they are at conflict or expected to fight. Any such member who remains completely neutral by not attacking, performing diplomatic missions, or supporting other members of their alliance who do, shall be deemed neutral and may be granted asylum, on a case-by-case basis. Any member caught supporting hostilities shall be deemed an active target and treated as such with extreme prejudice.

If you have grievance against Harmless or some of its members, or find yourself entrenched in a conflict you cannot handle or did not provoke, please first attempt a direct resolution through communication. It is our sincere hope that doing so shall bring the most amicable and timely resolution possible. If no satisfactory resolution is forthcoming, further options are available:  if you are a member of an alliance, reaching us through your alliance representative on our Embassy is preferred.  If you are a lone player or Embassy access is not an option for you, you may instead speak directly with one of our Diplomats:

  • KillerPoodle
  • Starry

We shall endeavor to hear and fairly mediate any disputes as we are able. But be forewarned: we shall judge and treat you as we see you judge and treat others.  Players and alliances who bypass our Embassy unnecessarily can also expect reduced priority due to the internal overhead this creates for us.

New to the game and looking for a Training Alliance?   Toothless? is a neutral training-oriented alliance and is actively recruiting new peaceful members. Contact KodaBear (#/Player/Profile/237186) if you are looking for the best training alliance in Illyriad.

Disclaimer: The above is jcx|orcboy's personal opinion and is not the opinion or policy of Harmless? [H?] or of the little green men that have been following him all day.

Alliance Name: Gizmonic Institute (tag: MST3k)

Recruitment Contact: so far, just me (Pehla) - I made it recently, but I hope to add to it :)

Who can join (any restrictions to race, location, population level, etc.)?
no restrictions on race, location, pop level ('cept I Highly encourage you to "finish" the city tutorial :D).  Mostly, this will be a peaceful, trade-centered alliance, and the only ones that we may weed out are ones that overtly militaristic or have a self-/guild-sabotaging mindset...
That being said, if you're nice, caring, and easy to get along with..with a "great" sense of humor, you'll prolly move up the ranks in Illy, both in the guild and also the game.  


What are some benefits of joining your alliance (protection, training, etc)?

Being a returning player, I can't offer "full" protection, but would recommend you Don't go looking for trouble in the first place.  However, being a new guild/kinship, I will be doing the recruiting, so when I add you and we talk, you'll be able to be trained in the finer things Illy has to offer.

If, for some reason, I do not know the answer, I will point you towards resources (inside and outside the game), players, and possibly other guilds who could help.

I am not going to keep someone who doesn't want to stay; that's not how I roll.

What does the alliance stand for? What are it's goals and governing principles?  

Mst3k has a sub-theme of being free-spirited, and counter-society/culture.  I will instill this theme in all our alliance-mates whenever possible.  I will not instill rebellious-ness; instead, I will instill a critical (thinking) mindset...as the late, great George Carlin said, "you need to look at things from a slanted, 45 degree angle" from everyone else, and be able to realize when something doesn't feel right.

That being said, if you're looking for a fight, militaristically, this is the wrong alliance for you.  As stated (so far) on the in-game alliance page, the alliance will pursue every means necessary to find a non-"lethal" solution; where that fails, it will be remembered that, "War is diplomacy by another means".

What alliance are you affiliated with?

I am not affiliated with any "larger" alliance (see next question), so we will not be swayed by petty squabbles among the larger alliances, but will rely on our internal metrics/decisions among our own members, as each one of us will have equal access to the information presented - and each one will be able to vote independently from each other to reach an equitable decision that will affect the entire alliance.

When do your member Graduate on advantage (is it based on pop, time played, etc.)?  

I would not "force" graduation; you are free to move on when you wish, when you think yourself ready.  We are not jedi - there are no trials; we are not a school - there are no tests;  if you feel you are ready to move on, that is the best measurement.

What makes your training alliance different from the other?  

Being "different" or "unique" is being thrown about in today's society, therefore this seems like a loaded question.

However, I have returned thrice now (Lutie, BobSmith, and now Pehla), so I have seen many things go away, but I have also seen many changes arrive.

If you cannot bend with the wave(s), you will break when it does.

Also, being a Mst3k-themed alliance, we will encourage levity and being jovial/happy whenever the situation presents itself.  If you cannot laugh at the world, the world will not be kind to you; if you can laugh at the world, life will laugh with you.

What rules govern the alliance? For example, diplomats and troops: who can they be used against in a hostile manner (no one, only NPCs or certain factions, only those at war with, only inactives, only with permission, anyone not in the alliance or in NAP with your alliance, etc)? 

As an alliance that strives to maintain a "peaceful" nature with its neighbors, diplomats and troops can be used against any NPC, limited factions (it will be an alliance-wide vote on which one(s)..."an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind"), and no real players (inactive or not).

The exception(s) to the above rule: 1. with explicit written permission, copied and pasted to me, from the player in question; 2. if by some odd chance we are at war, my war minister will see to the organization of the armies and overall tactics.

Any other information you would like to add? 

if you are unfamiliar with either Rifftrax, Mystery Science Theater 3000, or Cinematic Titanic, I would recommend doing some research first, b/c comedy - like laughter - is always the best medicine.

Thank you for your time and patience in reading this ^_^ - Pehla, "The Mad" of Gizmonic Institute.

Alliance Name: the House of Plantagenet (PLAN)

Recruitment Contact:

Recruitment officer Mr Ears; or the King of the Realm, Cactus

Who can join (any restrictions to race, location, population level, etc.)?
We are not race restrictive.  We take anyone who has the desire to learn the game. 

What are some benefits of joining your alliance (protection, training, etc)?
We take care of our own!  People will receive training and protection.  They will be taught how to play the game and be courteous to their neighbors.

What does the alliance stand for? What are it's goals and governing principles?  
We stand for peaceful coexistence among the alliances. We are lead by the King of the Realm and his Court of the Round Table.  We want people to have fun free of suppression and oppression from other individuals or alliances.

What alliance are you affiliated with?
Damage Inc. (OUCH) is our sister alliance and protective umbrella.  Other alliances have also indicated they will protect us from aggressive players and alliances.

When do your member Graduate on advantage (is it based on pop, time played, etc.)? 
We do not require people to quit at a certain level.  If they reach a level of 40k pop , normally they have already been taught to be a mentor to the newer people in the alliance. They may choose to leave at anytime , or at any level int heir training.  They will not be forced out unless they cause a problem or cease to be active in the alliance.  If they want to move to another alliance, we will help them find a home.

What makes your training alliance different from the other?  
When possible we have one on one training between mentors  and our new people.  We make every effort to make them feel like part of the "family" of PLAN

What rules govern the alliance? For example, diplomats and troops: who can they be used against in a hostile manner (no one, only NPC's or certain factions, only those at war with, only inactive's, only with permission, anyone not in the alliance or in NAP with your alliance, etc)? 
1.  We train and allow people to attack only NPC's, abandoned and/or inactive players unless they first have been the victim of an unprovoked attack.  Then they must gain permission from the leadership to retaliate. If they were wronged and diplomatic measures were unsuccessful in achieving a satisfactory resolve then what ever retaliatory measures would be administered would be controlled by the Prime Minister of PLAN and must be approved bythe King..
2.  Abandoned accounts that are still attached to an alliance may not be attacked without permission from the home alliance
3. Should our confederated alliances ask for help with a just cause, only volunteers from our alliance may join their fight.  They must drop out of PLAN to join a fight but when they are done, may return without penalty.  The leadership of PLAN will determine whether the cause is just.
4.  In time of war, PLAN shall remain Neutral as an alliance.
5.  Contrarily we will not stand by and let others harass or intimidate our players and expect not to receive retaliation.

Any other information you would like to add? none!
People who join PLAN will be free from harassment from within the alliance.  We do not allow badgering or misconduct from ill tempered and ill mannered players. We are a family in Illy and want to keep it friendly and clean.
