    This is a document built on our age old policy of "shoot first, negotiate later" as instituted by Yoso in this 2015 thread: Due to several instances of foreign infringement on BK sovereignty, I am putting what we already practice into a formal edict on public record. This edict provides a base of support for countering not only for our own members, but our allies and protectorates as well. Shoot First Policy I. Purpose The purpose of this policy is to clarify rules and procedures when dealing with raids against members of the Black Knights or affiliated nations/alliances. II. Shoot First Any nation who attacks any member of the Black Knights or affiliated parties during peace time is hereby authorized by the Emperor for counter attacked immediately. This includes nations that fly under a protected Alliance Affiliation or top 30 alliance itself. The Archduke of Defense (or their designee) is responsible for organizing counter attacks on the raider. To clarify, this does not give permission for members to attack in defense of someone, but gives the Archduke of Defense the authority to conduct defensive counter measures to protect The Black Knights and affiliated parties, including but not limited to, counter attacks and espionage. III. Ask Questions Later The Archduke of Foreign Affairs or their designee may contact the appropriate authority figure that the raiding nation/alliance has. However, The Black Knights have no responsibility to message first nor postpone counter attacks to fit the offending sides timeline. As approved by Emperor Leo the Great, effective September 4th, 2018.

    Galactic News Agency: Report I

    Catian Military enforces the law In recent weeks news has been emerging from the Catian home system of Kriseroi regarding a military conflict between Catia and an unknown faction. When speaking to Admiral Qoone of the First Catia fleet this was said "As part of our government's recent announcements we detained an unauthorised vessel that had entered our controlled space. As well as this the Second Catia Fleet was attacked by a group of ships who's identity we are not revealing at the current time. The attacks by this group of ships were unsuccessful and they have now been dealt with." Flag planting in the Hoplos System We have received unusual photos from the Hoplos System that appear to show soldiers planting flags on every asteroid in an asteroid belt. It appears that this is a factions way of showing the galaxy that they own this belt. Unfortunately, none of these photos clearly show the factions flag however once we have confirmation we will let you know. We hope to bring you more on this story as it develops

    Tatras Announcements

    Peace in our time After a long period of hostilities, the Arakhari and Tatras have officially agreed to a ceasefire in and around the Tudran system. The ceasefire will be upheld on the following terms: The Arakhari cease all raiding and slaving against Tatras in systems 23, 28, 32 and 33. Tatras recognize exclusive Arakhari ownership of system 37, grant permission for Arakhari ships to pass through Tatras-controlled space on route to other systems and pledge that any existing Arakhari strongholds in systems 23, 28, 32 and 33 will not be attacked. The Arakhari and the Tatreans agree to cede any colonies held by the other in systems 33 and 37 and pledge not to expel, exterminate or otherwise dispossess existing colonists on said colonies. This announcement comes after a prolonged skirmish between the Arakhari and Tatras on the Arakhari-occupied colony of Pysny. Citizens of both the colony and the Tatras homeworld Gerlach were seen celebrating the news of being finally reunited with their families, while administrators begin the task of integrating the Arakhari populace into Tatras culture.

    When I created my nation you guys were one of the first alliances to send me an invite to join your alliance, so I figured it's better to join the second best alliance in the world rather than trying to grind on my own or with a few other people in an alliance no one has heard of.

    Galactic News Agency: Report II

    Catia Military attacked whilst enforcing border laws Earlier today whilst enforcing Catia's new border laws in regards to the Enoch System the border patrol was attacked. Foreign vessels under the control of the Empire of the Kislevites attempted and succeeded to board a civilian construction vessel and were repelled when attempting the same on another vessel. However, the most damage was caused by the unexpected arrival of the fleet from Elysia. It seems the superior number of fighters managed to overwhelm Catia's border patrol. With not many survivors scattered across a few odd Catia ships, we are all wondering what Catia will do next to counter this foreign incursion.

    Purrsian Empire

    Background/History: The Purrsian Empire are a feline race hailing from the planet Catnipia, a planet with a large variety of climates and terrain. The growing rodent population lead the feline race to soon dominate the planet. For the past few millennia, the many clans have battled among each other for what little land they could gain. Over time one clan would gain the control of the world. As technology advanced, the felines adopted new weapons. This lead toward the clans signing peace between one another. Due to the massive decrease in rodent population, the felines of the planets attempted to organize their efforts to keep both their empire and the other populations in a good steady number. The current leader Abu Huraya is a feline whose name means "Father of the Kitten". The previous rulers of the Feline Empire have shown the way to death and ever increasing power with the new technologies and weapons. Abu Huraya stands at the dawn of a new era, with more Felines looking to the sky for their future and the ever increasing demand for more land and control. Government/Culture: The Purrsian Empire are led by a single King. His rule is monitored by various government officials, but the real power remains with the King. The culture of the Purrsian Empire very closely resembles the Persian Empire that existed so many years ago. With some minor differences, such as the obvious fact it is run by cats, and fossil fuels are not used. Rather hydropower is one of the largest power sources. This has kept Catnipia clean, which is a large part of Purrsian Culture.
