The Pan-Celtic Alliance


Image


Dia dhuit, Halò, and welcome to the Pan-Celtic Alliance!

Our mission is to protect and share the cultural beauty of our Celtic nations through trade, defense and cooperation. We support all forms of government, but your nation must be a Celtic nation, or one that stems from a Celtic cultural background for full membership. Meetings are conducted in the form of Summits, which will be hosted by one of the Pan-Celtic Alliance member nations.

The Pan-Celtic Alliance has a mutual defense doctrine, and a declaration of war on one member is a declaration on all members in the entire alliance. If a member declares war on someone else, the member can, call in alliance support, however it will be up to the discretion of the members whether or not they will get involved in an offensive war, and in what capacity. Currently there is no response force, and it is up to the member nations to supply their own military equipment. As we are a defensive alliance we strive for peace first, respecting and supporting a diplomatic solution.

The Pan-Celtic Alliance is open to all forms of economic systems, and encourages trade and treaties between our members.


Requirements

  1. Must be a Celtic Nation, or a nation with a Celtic heritage
  2. Must be human
  3. Must be MT or Early PMT
  4. Must agree to the rules

Rules

Postby Pan-Celtic Alliance » Mon Jan 05, 2015 4:45 pm

Rules


1. Human nations only. No anthropomorphic people, no fantasy beings (elves, dwarves, etc.), no immortals.

2. Modern tech or very early PMT. No FT will be accepted.

3. No trolling, or griefing. OOC hate will not be tolerated. Starting an OOC war will result in immediate expulsion.

4. Keep IC in the IC threads, and keep OOC in the OOC threads.

5. Don't start wars without valid reasons. Yes, we may help you, but declaring war for the sake of it will mean that you will receive less aid, or no aid at all.

6. If you're going to make an IC post, please use proper grammar and punctuation. OOC, it's not a problem, as long as we can understand what you're saying, and if English isn't your first language, we'll be understanding.

7. All decisions are final, but if you ask us for an appeal, we can see if a compromise can be made.

Very Brief History of your nation:
As the northern tribes assaulted and settled a Britannia recently bereft of Roman garrisons, they found a stable and comfortable quality of life and so Roman influence never faded, but instead flourished in its own way.

In the 15th Century, the popularity of Maria Tudoria Elizabeth I was extremely high, but her Privy Council, her Parliament and her subjects thought that the unmarried queen should take a husband; it was generally accepted that, once a queen regnant was married, the husband would relieve the woman of the burdens of head of state. Also, without an heir, the Tudor dynasty would end; the risk of civil war between rival claimants was a possibility if Elizabeth died childless. The first and most ardent suitor was Mary I’s widower Philip II of Spain. However, numerous other suitors from nearly all European nations sent ambassadors to the English court to put forward their suit.

Risk of death came dangerously close in 1564 when Elizabeth caught smallpox, and British destiny forever changed. It is said that in her fever, she experienced a holy visitation from a source no one would ever have suspected, given her moderate yet adamant Protestant views. Elizabeth claimed that Danu, mother goddess to the Tuatha de Danaan – the forerunners of modern Celts – came to her in her hour of greatest peril and told her that the elder gods had returned from their long celestial journey to reclaim the hearts and spirits of their Briton children. Elizabeth quickly recovered and proclaimed the vision a miracle.

The Second War of the Roses followed, with House York rising up with the support of all Christians of the realm, many of them Lancastrian. But a return to the original gods and a renewal of ties to the land was popular among the laymen and more nobles than might have been thought joined the Tudor cause. The Church of England reacted virulently, supporting the Yorkists and declaring Elizabeth and her revived Druidism anathema. In response, Elizabeth decreed the Church to be valid, but no longer the faith of the Crown and State. Popular revolts against the clergy resulted in the Church’s presence being reduced to Yorkist fortifications. In the end, the overwhelming popularity of Druidism resulted in the expunging of the Church of England.

The initial reaction from Rome was one of support for Elizabeth, seen as a scourge against the Protestants. The Vatican believed that Catholicism could be reinvigourated in Britain. Too late, the Pope realised that the movement was strong enough to hold permanent sway over the nostalgic Britons. Having supported the movement at its inception, the Pope could not exactly call for a Crusade – especially given that Rome was greatly occupied with the Holy Land, and that Britain held nothing of geographical or theological importance for Catholicism. Indeed, the pagan artifact Stonehenge became a leading symbol for the Druid revival, something the Vatican wanted no part of. As a result of the successful Druid Movement, Elizabeth conformed readily to the idea that marriage and birth-giving were natural cycles of the gods-given Earth. She married Edwardius Robert Dudley, 1st Earl of Leicester, in 1565. After much anticipation and anxiety, Elizabeth finally gave birth to Augustus Tudorius Taliesin I in 1575; Prince Taliesin succeeded his mother to the throne in 1603.

The nation’s identity as a Welsh state of Roman influence was solidified when, in 1599, Prince Taliesin suggested the name Cymrea, a Sassenach version of Cymru, the Welsh name for Wales. The name was officially adopted November 3, 1601, and was declared the national holiday by Queen Elizabeth. Later, the name of the family line would be changed to Rosa, to reflect the Tudor rose. This incited a sweeping change of name for all noble Houses of Cymrea, who would not be left out. Native flora and fauna became symbols - and names - for the oldest Houses. After a similar popular Druidic Movement, Ireland joined the United Kingdom of Cymrea.

Cymrea played very quietly on the world stage through the next centuries, maintaining an isolationist policy that focused greatly on domestic affairs. The Age of Imperialism passed Cymrea by as the Crown remained largely uninterested in exposing itself to colonial insurgency; though this did not prevent the UKC from asserting its influence where it was deemed convenient. With an unbroken dynastic line content to advance the kingdom, Queen Rhiannon o Rosa Regina reigns over a technological and economic powerhouse ready to resume a place in global affairs.

He took cover from behind a large crate of books however he knew it wouldn't be long until they got to him. It had been over 70 years since the attempted Aanglandish conquest of Ardoki ended with Ardokian soldiers taking control of the wretched fascist regime, yet a right-wing resurgence had arisen in the last decade and it wouldn't be long until a full scale revolt occurred.

Generating Some Activity

Postby Aigeantir » Thu Feb 12, 2015 9:06 pm

Okay, since activity has died down a bit, I'm openly taking suggestions from members about where we can take this infant alliance. Along with this, I'm going to start looking at creating a proper governing structure, so that I can make use of the enthusiasm I have of those of you who have already joined.

I'm looking at two options, and think that either one could work:

1. Presidential - Secretary option: an elected President/Prime Minister with either appointed or elected Secretaries/Ministers to oversee unique aspects of military, economy, foreign affairs, etc. (I would maintain a spot as Secretary General to oversee the updating of the alliance)

2. Elected Council: Council of 5 elected leaders who oversee the governance.

Very Brief History of your nation:
After the Treaty of Tordesillas split the New World between the Iberian powers, the Portuguese sliver of South America, known as Brasil, grew and prospered throughout the years, until Napoleon invaded Iberia and forced the Portuguese royal family to flee to the New World. When they returned to quell liberal rebellions, the ruler they left behind (Dom Pedro I), declared the state of Wagondia, all of the Portuguese New World, to be independent. The old empire, as it was known, expanded to include most of South America, and became a major hemispheric power under Dom Pedro II. While on vacation, his daughter, Princess Isabella, abolished the institution of slavery, and moved to take power from the powerful elites. In response, they staged a coup, and the Wagain Civil War (1889-1891) ensued. After peace was won, a new capital in Santa Catalina was built, and the empire settled into the Republica Velha period, characterized by a political scene dominated by right-wing elites and military officials. These were also some of the most prosperous years in Wagain history, characterized by rubber and coffee booms that build modern Wagondia. In 1930, Getúlio Vargas staged a coup, and installed himself as dictator until his deposition in 1945, guiding Wagondia through World War 2 and into the dawn of it's second imperial era and improving overall quality of life. From 1945 to 1998, the Second Wagain Republic ruled with a sensible and benevolent hand, building up civil rights and political freedoms and maintaining popular support in the colonies. In 1998, after an unsuccessful coup by Imperial factions roused public support for monarchism, the country's public voted in favor of reinstating the monarchy. A senior official was voted in as the new monarch, and he became Emperor Edward I. After 17 years of rule, he presides over one of the largest and most prosperous empires on earth.

RP example (required - can be anything from a short paragraph on this form to a link to an RP example on another thread):
In wholly characteristic fashion, the heavens above the city had opened up without any warning, and a barrage of cool summer rain was beginning to saturate anything not under a roof. Fortunately for the Lord Fleet Commander, Ezequiel Mateo, comfortably reclined in his desk chair amid several piles of paperwork and reports, he had the bulk of an inch of insulated glass to protect his crisp uniform and refreshingly dry office from the downpour. His compatriots, however, were not as lucky, and to Mateo's dismay, he was rather abruptly interrupted by the spitfire of a man that was his Chief Subordinate, Kirabo Isingoma, who threw open the office doors and stormed into the room, drenched in rainwater.

"Mr. Isingoma, it's always a pleasure" said the superior Mr. Mateo, pouring two glasses of whisky from a bottle he kept in a nearby drawer. "Do have a drink" he continued "It's awfully dismal outside; you seem to have noticed".

Isingoma saluted tensely, but refused to sit, standing stiffly before the much more relaxed Commander. "Indeed, sir, but enough about the weather. I was summoned on short notice and they told me to get here as fast as I could; there is urgent word for you".

"If by they you mean the Fleet Air Arm Office, do tell them I cannot spare another helicopter" replied Mateo in a fatigued tone

"By they, I mean to imply the big house. You have mail, and it's straight from his majesty's personal desk. As I mentioned before, it is urgent"

"Aye" exclaimed Mateo, straightening up at once. "An early christmas present, I hope. Do sit, Isingoma, please". After some time carefully opening the envelope and scanning over the contents, he smiled, chuckled a bit, and began drafting an official statement, while ordering Isingoma to be on his way. "A gift from his majesty indeed; it seems the mission in Baggnagia has been given the go ahead. Pack your bags, Kirabo, we're on the next boat out of the empire".
