Alliance: ASGARD.

Day 1,866, 14:20 by ragalanow jadon


For a long time every article or discussion that came up involving alliances and where Canada stood on it’s foreign affairs I would throw out the same thing, why not ASGARD? Most people didn’t take it as a serious option but lately every time ASGARD is brought up I’ve seen a slight change in opinion.
The most recent shift I saw was after reading an article by Rylde that mentioned the possibility of Canada joining ASGARD. Peoples responses seemed curious and a lot of why not’s? Seeing these reactions I decided to try and go on a search to see just what it would take for the members of ASGARD to except Canada and what they would expect from us.
I got ahold of the CP of Finland, who directed me to the MoFA. Both players were very helpful and informative. The questions I asked were answered quite promptly. So in this article I will be share what I found and hopefully give those that don’t know very much about ASGARD a little more information on the alliance.


The first questions that came to mind were the most obvious; what would it take for ASGARD except new members? Would they consider Canada as a member?

This is the response I got from Finland’s MoFA:


MoFA: Some changes in the founding treaty for starters as it speaks of local alliance. Basically the joining process is: a current member recommends a new applicant, and then all members have to pass a congressional vote to accept the new member. We are also thinking about adding a trial-membership in the treaty as there's been a lot of interest lately, which is kind of weird as we are after all "just a small local alliance.”


This response may seem a little veg but that is to be expected. People might take that as a bad sign, but I’d remind everyone that I’m just a Canadian citizen not CP of Canada making a serious inquiry into joining.




So now that the main question’s are out of the way here’s a little bit of information on ASGARD, past and present, for people to evaluate when they consider supporting ASGARD as a alliance for Canada.


What are ASGARD’s principals and priorities?

MoFA: Asgard is closely-knit alliance. We defend ourselves by any and all means necessary.


What is expected of its members?

MoFA: Only thing that is expected is to communicate with allies and help members. From actual and real communication comes a feeling of unity and the will to help, and alliance’s that don't give 100% help to it's members is worth nothing. The true test of courage comes when you are in a minority.


Could you give me a little bit of its history?

MoFA: The current thought of Nordic Alliance is over a year old, starting as project of several politically active players in Finland, Sweden and Norway who were disillusioned on alliance-politics of the day and wanted to create something new. A thought of a small but local alliance came up. In the end after serious talks between Finland, Sweden and Norway, talks that took long time and saw many governments Finland and Sweden ended up forming the alliance together (unfortunately) without our "little brother" Norway as a founding member.


So there you have it.I hope you found this article useful and informative on the alliance ASGARD and will maybe take into consideration the possibility that it may be a good alliance for Canada.
I will be attaching a short survey to the end of this article with purpose of gathering the public opinion on ASGARD. After a few days I will be writing a follow up article with the result of the survey.
Thanks for reading,

Ragalanow Jadon.

We are a country around the N°65 and so are the members of ASGARD. They are a small brotherhood alliance working together as one.
I personally thinks that eCanade would fit in perfectly in that alliance if they accept us ofc.
We in The Imperial Party of Canada has already been speaking too some people in charge of ASGARD and we have had some good discussions about eCanada joining.

So send over some emissary's and start some high level conversations about eCanadas be or not to be in ASGARD...

Norway has chosen to stick with EDEN, but they still consider Asgard as their brothers and assist them when they can.

@VastlyFrozen thx for the vote and sub o7
i was planning on only doing ASGARD as this was mainly an article based on my personal opinion and the fact that Rylde preposed it as a possible alliance for canada to join under his leadership.

although if i have time to i may release similar articles on the other alliance's, we'll have to see what happens in RL over the next couple weeks

There's a very strong chance that Ireland will join Asgard next month which will give you a natural border with Asgard. With friendly relations with eUK, this gives lots of opportunities to head east and have a just war. The likelihood is that Asgard will become to EDEN what CoT is to TWO.
