Nine months ago, the Augustin Alliance entered a period of trial: the organization would be closing for an indeterminate period of time. Our constituent regions were forced to forge their own path in the world, disunified. Our founder, August, plunged into a period of inactivity. However, silence is not death. There has been a great deal of backstage work in this period of dormancy, and we are excited to announce that the Augustin Alliance is open for business once again.
In days past, the constituent regions acted independently of each other. However, we have recognized the need for oversight of certain tasks within the Alliance. Therefore, a Central Strategic Committee will oversee the governments of each region. To be more specific as to how these changes will affect the Alliance:
The Alliance Discord server, found here, will return to being the primary hub for communication. Regional servers will be archived as read-only, and all activity will be redirected to the main server.
Conch Kingdom's, Ridgefield’s, and Cape of Good Hope’s governments have received overhauls in order to make them more efficient for the communities they possess.
The Joint Task Force has been revamped, with a new ranking system, dispatch, and policies. The JTF will retain its independent nature.
The Reference Library has been completed, providing aid to new nations around the world.
Alliance history, previously spread across individual regions’ dispatches, has now been expanded upon in a single dispatch.
A new set of Alliance-wide policies have been implemented.
The Discord server and its bot have been given significantly more capabilities.
Dawn, the first member region to not be founded originally by August, has been added to the folds of the Alliance. While originally founded by New Ex Patria, Dawn is an entirely different community from the one it was created to be. The region will have a foreign affairs focus, with a Greek theme. (All Praise Eos!)
The Augustin Alliance has been through dreary days, but the winter is over, and we have returned to become the first among regions.
