The Griffincrest Corporation
Improving life since 1926



Griffincrest Oil Inc was founded in 1926, in Paradise City, Exponent, by a small time business man named Julius Griffincrest. The small company soon flourished, and became one of the lead oil companies in all of Exponent. He thought of a great idea to keep families together, and in 1929, build the first town on the grounds of his factories, so that his employees would always be close to their families. In 1978, Julius passed the corporation on to his son, Claudius.

Under Claudius, Griffincrest Oil saw a massive increase in both sales, and power. When the plague struck Exponent, Claudius put the lives of his employees first. He ordered his security forces to quarantine all of his factories, thus saving thousands of lives. After the plague settled, Griffincrest emerged as one of the most powerful organizations in all of the new Blackhelm Confederacy

Today, the Griffincrest Corporation employs nearly 10% of the Blackhelm Confederacy, and maintains a security force of several million men and women, a proud and storied maritime security force, and a first rate air force to ensure that people on any Griffincrest Oil rig are kept safe, no matter what problems are happening outside the gates. On top of this, these men and women are meant to ensure that Griffincrest oil will arrive at its destination, no matter the obstacles in the way. Be they natural disasters, heavily pirated seas, or even a full on naval blockade, it is out guarantee that the product you need delivered will arrive at the time we promised.

Today, Griffincrest pumps several hundred million barrels of oil a day from our holdings scattered all across the globe. It is the Griffincrest pledge to support the nations that allow our corporation into their borders, and our employees work tirelessly to improve the lives of the citizens of those nations. Unfortunately, the level of poverty in many oil-rich nations is at an extreme, and as a result Griffincrest annually spends billions on civil works projects and charity works, to ensure that people all around the world have access to the most basic of life's amenities, like clean water, a good education, and basic medical care. For more about our charity and public works, please see the website linked below.

Please, we encourage all national leaders to use our oil. Feel free to enquire on this page. The following contains a link to out alternate website, as well as all necessary information not available here.

Dear Satanic Council,

The Corporation ships its oil at the very low price of a mere thirty dollars per barrel of oil. This means that the required shipment to your nation comes out to a total of $55,140 per day. If this is acceptable, please inform us of your acceptance, and delivery to your nation will begin immediately.

Sincerely,

Claudius Griffincrest
========================================================================
Dear Comaackian Government,

Please state the amount of oil your nation wishes to purchase. We sell for thirty dollars a barrel, one of the lowest prices from any company worldwide. We hope to hear from you soon!

Thank You,

Claudius Griffincrest

Dear Mister Griffencrest,

After much consideration, The Satanic Kingdom would instead wish to recieve 919 barrels of crude oil daily, with the daily costs being $27,570 daily according to our calculations. Is this acceptable, sir?

Yours Sincerely,
Her Infernal Majesty Hell Princess Seria Blackfire I.

OOC: The Griffencrest Corporation is an International Incident through the mere act of existing. Take this thread for what it is; a warning to all oil-exporting n00b nations that their world may be about to come crashing down under a tidal wave of piracy/privateering, terrorism, sabotage, corporate espionage and wanton destruction.

This actually took longer than I expected. The sharks are now loose in the Tuna Tank once again.

ooc: I was wondering when this oil-hungry, sadistic, multi-national cooporation would lay an utter smack down unto the oil-rich n00bs of the new Nationstates forums. And I agree with Volzgrad here, there are so many more n00bs unto today's forums that it is literally driving us vets crazy. Even though we were never on the best of terms, (if any terms for that matter :p ) I still might even buy some oil and finance some "resource exploitation"....
