From Astro Empires Wiki
Allies of Essµr, now known as AzTEC, was originally created by Scortwych and Qµeen Kri§tinne in the alpha galaxies as a vassalage of The Realms of Essµr and Yales. From their beginnings AzTEC has been classified as a war-style guild, and that eventually led to the shared entity with Essµr later known as the Trinity.
Since the guild is of moderate size, values such as Respect, Tolerance and Team Work have been taken to heart by its members. Structurally based on a monarchy-style hierarchy, with a strong meritocratic influence, the guild has always found its more active and loyal members within the highest ranks.
The history of AzTEC can be divided into periods:
The Creation of Allies of Essµr [¤AoE¤]
Allies of Essµr was created in coordination of two people, Scortwych and Astronomy Domine, and the agreement of Qµeen Kri§tinne. Later and in the same week 3 more members joined.
The War Against The Guardian Task Force [TGTF] and The Confederation of the Red Moon [CoRM]
Because of a dispute between the Ordre des Corsaires de la Liberté [¤OCL¤] and The Guardian Task Force [TGTF], The Realms of Essµr and Yales [¤EeY¤] and The Allies of Essµr [¤AoE¤] decided to support and engage their first joint war under the privateers side.
In time the Confederation of the Red Moon [CoRM] honored their pact and declared against the OCL's coalition, and to balance the fight the BORG entered the conflict by declaring against the CoRM.
The war was won by the privateers coalition and as for Allies of Essµr, many hard fronts were fought and won in A13-A18.
The GI affair
When Astronomy Domine left he gave control to Khelben Ferrari, current guild master. Once in charge he transformed the guild from a military order to a meritocracy where several members held different positions such as diplomacy.
Soon, because of one offense from the GI guild, Allies of Essµr accepted their challenge of war and they surrendered after mere hours of fighting. That war was known to be the shortest in the server.
The First Trinity War
Also in that period the Dark Templars [DT] were reformed and encouraged to share entity with [¤EeY¤] and [¤AoE¤] in what was known as the Trinity. Later, the BORG and the Trinity went to war against the Celestial Horizon [CLS] alliance starting the first server war. In that process [¤EeY¤], [¤AoE¤] and [DT] merged in one same banner.
Allies of Essµr fought against the odds in medium galaxies until the intervention of the Imperium [IMP]. Finally the Trinity and the BORG won the war against more than 9 guilds achieving a major change in the server.
After the first server war each wing returned to their original tag.
On a side note and during the server war, Mordor [«o»] declared against the New Planetary Order [NPO] (previously known as the Imperium) after they went to peace and changed leadership, and the Trinity joined NPO's side and the coalition achieved Mordor to surrender in 3 days.
The Rainbow Llama [RL_U] Issue
After the first great war the server went to a general state of peace where many guilds started to rebuild.
During that period it was common to see large groups of people attacking small guilds with no chance of fighting back and forcing them to disband and or join their ranks, and that style was commonly seen from the Rainbow Llamas.
Inside the Trinity entity the wings enforced a direct roleplay of respecting newer and weaker guilds, attacking via war only and with that thought in mind, plus the help of The Confederation of the Red Moon, the alliance declared war against the Rainbow Llamas.
They fought better in forum than in game but that didn't prevent their fleet from getting targeted. In time and when the issue calmed itself the Trinity and CoRM accepted The Llammas surrender.
During that war the Trinity wings stayed and fought in their own respective tags.
The Fellowship War
Later the server saw how Mordor declared war against Clan Ghost Bear [CGB] and Alpha Team [: D], two guilds with not even half the strength (combined) to fight the Orcs. CGB asked the Trinity for help and two factions complied, and because of the friendly relations between the Allies of Essµr and the 13th Wolfguards [13th] they also agreed to help CGB and the fellowship war started,
[¤HoA¤] (previously named [DT]) + [¤AoE¤] + [13th] + [CGB] + [: D] vs [«o»]
Both fronts fought courageously and the fellowship got the most kills, but both parties agreed to white peace.
Which showed both sides respected the strength and conduct of the other side.
Even tho both sides claim victory (fellowship in numbers, Mordor in moral), it was a stalemate.
Fellowship War pt1
During this period Allies of Essµr took active role in both wars where members started to coordinate in teams and the guild values such as respect and tolerance were heavily enforced, also [¤AoE¤] reached more than 30 members.
And even if debated the reasons for the llama issue and the fellowship war they both started from guilds used to fight smaller or weaker targets but those attitudes have not been seen from them now (learned the lesson? or like stronger targets now?).
Friendly fight with Nova Defence Force [NOVA] and The Order of Kayoss [OoK]
After the fellowship war, Allies of Essµr set some personal goals such as fleet and economy per player and guild, to show the tag was ready for the next war.
The server's environment was hard, where many guilds fought over sever disagreements such as The Confederation of the Red Moon retaliation to Mordor for the attacks over Darkness and Czar, with the initial help of the Realms of Essµr and Yales, and also global disagreements between the BORG and the Trinity.
Also, the Horsemen of the Apocalypse [¤HoA¤] ceased to exist due to internal pressure and also from the BORG and The Realms of Essµr and Yales.
With all the political perspective in mind, Allies of Essµr promoted a friendly duel against Nova Defence Force and the Order of Kayoss, both similar guilds in fleet strength and located in medium galaxies.
The war started and Allies of Essµr took active role in the offensive while the other two took control of A16 and A17. The war continued until Allies of Essµr broke the barricade held in A17 and then both guilds agreed to white peace.
When Allies of Essµr was in peace it was agreed with the Realms of Essµr and Yales to reform the Trinity and to spend the holidays together, so after a year of sleep the Trinity woke up again. But the entity did not have to wait long for a server war again because what was going to happen would change the alpha one more time.
The Second Trinity War
Due to differences between the New Planetary Order and the Rainbow Llamas they went to war, where more guilds added to each side. Also, the BORG wrote a forum poll on who they should declare next, mentioning their allies or friends such as the Trinity and the Confederation of the Red Moon, and they eventually selected the New Planetary Order and the Luenar Empire, two guilds already at war plus smaller targets like Clan Ghost Bear [CGB] and AEGIS [« Æ »] to equal their total fleet strength. Such facts plus the already damaged relation between the Trinity and the BORG and other reasons given at that time lead the start of the second server war where the Trinity and BORG finally fought each other.
For the war purpose the Trinity invited the guild Respect is Power [RIP] to join the ranks and to fight in the new war and they agreed, allowing the banner to share 3 different tags again.
The second server war developed in 4 stages,
I) The guilds started by making high hits in several fronts, the Trinity dominated certain galaxies such as A00-01, A11-15 and A25-29 while the BORG took the initiative in A02-03, A18-19 and A29. Then, both guilds proceeded to slowly gather in low galaxies and the BORG called their first bloodpact to join their side, the Octopus Battlelords [OOBL].
II) The Trinity hunted the Octopi in medium galaxies causing them to emigrate to the A30's where they fought the Minbari Federation [-Min-]. Once and with a higher Trinity and BORG concentration in low galaxies, the BORG called their second bloodpact, The Clan Mac Datho [•CMD•], despite the warns from the Confederation of the Red Moon to not to, causing them to declare against the BORG and to take their gather point in A29.
III) The BORG decided to call Mordor to finally enter the war and to take the Trinity Jumpgate in A01. At the same time the Confederation of the Red Moon moved as well to low galaxies in silence near the Trinity Jumpgate. In order to to execute such hard attack the BORG and Mordor merged to create the Dark Coalition Forces [DCF] and moved towards the Trinity Jumpgate, in coordination with Clan Mac Datho, and attacked in the battle that was later known as the Hall of Chosen Battle where millions of fleets were destroyed. When the fight was already advanced the Confederation of the Red Moon moved towards the jumpgate and caused the enemy front to retreat to later be hunted in their jumpgates. After the Hall of Chosen Battle Mordor surrendered and left the war.
IV) When Mordor left the war the Trinity and the Confederation of the Red Moon moved through low galaxies and took several fleets gathered there. Then, Clan mac Datho and Trinity achieved white peace and eventually the same happened with the Octopus BattleLords and SHIELD, leaving the BORG fighting the Trinity coalition alone. At the end the BORG surrendered and the second server war ended.
In this period Allies of Essµr fought continuously in medium galaxies until the forces gathered in A00-01. During the Hall of Chosen Battle several members lost their entire fleets leading to a passive response in the next weeks.
Even though that the Trinity coalition won the war and was finally at peace the affair was far from over, point proved later by the BORG actions towards the server that would encourage the Third server war, The War of Hate.
The Third Trinity War, The War of Hate
After the BORG surrendered in the last war, the server went to a brief state of peace and the Trinity wings returned to their original tags.
When Allies of Essµr demerged and because of the complexity of the last war, Khelben Ferrari renamed the tag to Aztec [AzTEC] to symbolize the maturity achieved by the guild members and the strength reflected in the high averages the guild showed in ranks.
And after months of constant insults and forum harassment the Confederation of the Red Moon declared war against the Rainbow Llamas, an issue the BORG used to align several guilds, 13th included, to execute their vindictive plans against all guilds that won the last war. In this way each one of the Trinity wings and friends were engaged separately by different guilds under hard odds.
In the forum the BORG coalition faked several war declarations with one weeks notice to cover their true intentions to restart a new server war. When the deadline was over they all started to attack The Trinity coalition causing the third server war to begin, The War of Hate.
Trinity reformed with the merge of the Realms of Essµr and Yales, AzTEC, Respect is Power and Shadow Company [รς] (Aztec protectorate). They faced off with Mordor, The Odd Brotherhood [Odd], The Knights of the Ni [Ni] and the Odd war wing [:Odd:].
During this period of time the E-Hate stored by many guilds became unbearable and added with the stagnation caused by blob tactics caused each of the guilds fighting this server war to become tired.
In time Mordor realized they didn't share BORG's motives and anger to fight, and they started to push their coalition towards peace talks. Their petition to end the server war was heard by the Corm-III coalition and it was decided to agree to peace.
The agreed upon terms were a 2 months NAP, and a 3 day warning declaration to start "fair wars".
After this war the CoRM and 13th, rivals during the hate war, decided to sign a bloodpact to prevent next server wars.
Since Mordor and BORG disagreed on the motives of peace their inevitable disruption took place later with one arranged war.
Finally, Corm started a war as well and this was against their old allies NPO and Min, issue that would have effects later and in the next wars. This war ended with the Rebel base fight. During this conflict AzTEC and III tried to mediate the end the conflict to minimize the damage produced between CoRM and NPO
The AzTEC Rodeo
After the hate war the guild went to a lethargic state of peace while the server waited for the Mordor vs BORG affair to start.
With this in mind the AzTEC declared war on the Rainbow Llamas with certain parameters to make it fair from AzTEC's viewpoint, a time frame of two weeks-war was given.
It was a good war where both guilds were very active. Finally the war ended when the two weeks were over.
The BORG Challenge
Once the Rodeo ended, AzTEC prepared for its next challenge. It would be a 1 vs 1 war against the BORG, the strongest military opponent AzTEC thought was out there.
Per server war terms, The BORG were informed 3 days in advance of the upcoming war
And unexpectedly, the BORG surrendered without fighting. A surrender AzTEC didn't accept.
During talks between the guilds, a two week delay was agreed upon.
The war started with good activity by both guilds. The BORG focused on bases, and AzTEC on fleets.
At some point of this affair it was evident both guilds were equally matched, as neither could take the other gathering. Blob stagnation started, and since the holidays were close it was agreed by both guilds to end the war. This war was full of BORG drama.
Exodus, The Fourth and Last Trinity War
When the challenge between the AzTEC and the BORG was close to be over something happened in the server that would have severe consequences.
After Mordor lost their duel against the BORG they targeted AEGIS guild to recover their loss, issue that showed their regular standards despite being them the main enforcers of ending the last hate war.
Corm under Sunny's command, EeY under Qµeen Kri§tinne's and AzTEC faction represented by Arverni decided to push this issue further and they formed a common front to fight Mordor, a front known as the Exodus.
The Trinity, Corm and allies divided themselves in 3 guilds, Exodus [Ex], ¤ Before Tomorrow ¤ [¤B¤] and War Gods [WG].
Mordor expecting the retaliation from Exodus finished their current war to the NPO.
Finally the Exodus declared war against Mordor
At the beginning Exodus managed to shoot high Mordor fleets and they were cornered several times, but in time and via the forum statements and their relations to others they managed to align several guilds to counter the weight of the Exodus. The NPO and the 13th wolfguards decided to stay neutral to this new server war.
When the war was advanced Mordor forces managed to outnumber the exodus coalition by 1 billion fleet.
During this period of time Qµeen Kri§tinne, Wraith, and Arverni decided to quit the game, leaving the responsibility to the last Trinity leadership.
The war stagnated substantially for several weeks as the Mordor coalition concentrated in the upper teens and the Exodus concentrated in the mid twenties. However, under the leadership of [Ex] Ahmed, a secret operation was planned to sneak several hundred million Exodus fleets into the lower teens and take out two substantial targets. The primary target was an ~200 mil Mordor group which was attacking bases and reinforcement fleets in the lower teens and the secondary target was a ~100 mil RAGEX blob. Landing in A10, and using several intermediate JG's to get into A13 in the middle of the night, Exodus began the attack on these two forces. Ahmed led the attack on the Mordor group and Apollo commanded the secondary team. The result of this engagement was the total destruction of all targets. Debris was recycled before the rest of the enemy forces in A18/19 could muster a response.
After this operation the Mordor coalition tightened its horizon and much boredom ensued. Finally, the Exodus took the initiative to start peace talks to the Mordor coalition, talks they refused despite the favor given in the last server war.
As final card the CoRM activated their bloodpact to 13th, a fact that pushed the Mordor coalition to end the war.
Finally, both coalitions agreed to peace and the Exodus war ended.
The EeY Departs and the Trinity Ends
The departure of Qµeen Kri§tinne and Scortwych marked the end of one era because The Realms of Essur and Yales was a guild ruled by roleplay, so most of its guild members decided to leave as well.
When the Exodus war was over AzTEC eased that process and the surviving members were welcomed inside AzTEC. Most of the EeYs went to AzTEC, and some few to Arachnids and Respect is Power.
Inside the secret halls under the AzTEC piramyds rest the holy bodies of the Essurian warriors.
God Huitzilopochtli will watch their eternal sleep, however once in a bluemoon King Khelben enters the chambers and see the death walk again, and the King and Qµeen will talk.
Once The Realms of Essur and Yales were gone, the AzTEC was left alone as the last of the 3 original Trinity wings, and it was decided to end the Trinity as a period of history had reached it's end. The AzTEC would not share the same reasoning as the Trinity since AzTEC itself is evil.
The Trinity has left the Alpha server taking with it it's values and diplomacy, good luck to anyone that deals with the survivors of this old entity, they know no reason, just blood.
After a long period of peace the guild sought to engage in its next challenge, and in talks with X.Org they agreed to an arranged war with AzTEC provided they could find another guild willing to join them to even the fight.
After experiencing a number of delays, and having been informed X.Org was unable to find anyone willing, the AzTEC decided to declare on SHLD to balance the fight.
Upon announcing the plan the Aztec was informed that SHLD had already agreed to a separate war with Corm which invalidated them as a target. Also, The Octopus Overlords seemed to take an interest in the conflict they were approached by both parties as a possible replacement to SHLD. They declined the offer and it was decided to press ahead with the war after first establishing a set of terms agreed to by both guilds.
The war itself proved to be an anticlimax. The terms restricted the number of total fleet a guild was allowed to have in a galaxy at the one time. This resulted in both sides major positions being unassailable to their opponents. Only one sizable fleet was taken out during the war and, due to the boredom on both sides, it was soon decided to bring an end the conflict.
The Trinity is the artifact used by the entity formed between the Realms of Essµr and Yales and the AzTEC to execute their common goals in the astroverse.
It is formed by the merge of it's two wings under one same tag. The result of such join provokes the creations of a much more strong guild than the wings themselves.
The Trinity obeys very high principles such as Respect, Honor and Power in between the wings and from the wings to the server. Also, The Trinity promotes community in between it's members.
The Trinity was conceived by the Realms of Essµr and Yales, The Allies of Essµr and the Dark Templars to fight the first server war against the Celestial Horizon Coalition.
One year later it was reformed to allow the entity to spend the holidays together but eventually ended fighting the second server war against the BORG coalition. During this period Respect is Power guild was invited to join the ranks and to fight the war.
Two weeks later after the second server war the Trinity woke up again to fight the BORG coalition one more time but now with the invitation extended to Shadow Company guild in the third server war.
The Trinity obeys the mutual agreement of it's wings where the Realms of Essµr and Yales, the AzTEC and the guests have equal weight to decide the path of the tag. Each guild has one main representative and it's usually the guildmaster.
3 main values are heavily enforced between the AzTEC

AzTEC does not attack indy players or small guilds, AzTEC doesn't farm. Members are asked to avoid the spam on the board and to behave accordingly on forum.

The Leadership and the People
Khelben Ferrari is the guildmaster of the AzTEC and the oldest member in the guild. Because of the structure, he is King and when he was in charge he changed the old military style to the current Meriocratic Monarchy. He has been the AzTECs guildleader for more than a year and a half. He enforces the guild's guidelines and rules, and he is the only one capable to recruit new members.
Wraith is the second in command due to his continuos contributions to the guild, and because of his good attitude and advise towards the group. Wraith gets full power when AzTEC goes to war as he is head of the military.
Arverni was appointed to be the head of diplomacy due to his skills. He can be contacted regarding any issue concerning the group.
Bimasakti, Sal, Apollo and Zypherius also support the leadership in several activities.
Inside the guild it can be found pie lovers, drunks, carsonite, rejected and recognized children, sooner or later, cannon fodder, animals (oh god, it's a monkey!), in game and outside game family, YUI fan, dune emperors, dragons, our loved Godzilla and more... and yes, a forum troll (he bites).
AzTEC forms one entity with the Realms of Essµr and Yales which means both guilds represent one same body, but separated due to language spoken on guildboard.
The guild has several friendly agreements with many guilds in the Alpha server.
Arverni is the head diplomat of the guild.
God Huitzilipochtli is the strongest among the gods, he is the god of war. He will join the AzTEC forces for when we fight the enemy and we will be unstoppable. AzTECs fight to get a closer seat to him in the afterlife.
Quetzalcoatl will influence the guild during peace times. Creation in peace.
War and Peace in one endless circle of creation and destruction, and we grow via your debris and our fleet.
The true strength lies in the brave souls of the warriors that won't hesitate to offer the enemy's blood for the gods, don't run, blessed you are because you will serve a higher purpose, our purpose.
Champion of Justice is that one that has 3 inside him... Respect, Honor and Power, a true enlightenment.
