AN HONEST CLAN ADVERTISEMENT: AOE
( NOTE: If you think my opinion is biased please Tell me so because I desperately tried not too be )
AN INTRODUCTION TO AOE:
The Founding Members Of AOE were...
[WOLF] The Conservative ( Clan Founder )
PoorRichard ( since left for Personal Reasons )
AOE was originally Founded by A member of The Clan Viking. After being contacted by The Conservative, He Decided to give the clan to him because he wanted to see it succeed. After a short recruitment period, The Clan Began Controversial Recruitment Spree which when finished had accumulated around 50 members in less then two months. Even though AOE is relatively known for its low profile on Drama, they have had there fair share of Forum Wars and Scandals. The best known Scandal was when a Recruitment Officer in AOE ( he shall not be named ) accidentally invited WOLF members to the clan. After a long and very Complicated Spitting War between the clan leaders, AOE vowed to not invite WOLF members while Wolf Did the same. Besides that and a few public forum wars, AOE has never gone through a Major time of turmoil, Hijacking, or Revolution. ( mostly because they haven't been around that long ) it's theme is Athens.
AOE's government had been the subject of Much debate, usually centering around how effective it actually is. The Government Consists of a Senate, The Head Practor, And the Practors. The Senate And Head Practor Decide The big clan decisions through a sorta Congress Style of doing things while the head Practor Carries out the decisions of The Senate and runs the clan day to day. The practors are members of the clan given special Jobs such as recruitment, Training, And forum Order. the closest modern Form of Government to compare AOE with is a slash between a Republic and a Constitutional monarchy. AOE ( to my knowledge ) is the only Warlight clan that runs a representative form of government. They however were not the first to try. WOLF'S, After Dark ( I think ) and others all tried in vain to Create a Republic but each time it failed. AOE, has recently overcome the downfall of most republics....the first elections. AOE successful carried them out in an orderly fashion and the transfer of power went about smoothly.
AOE is mainly Criticized for being more idealistic then reality Based. Critics of there government, say that AOE will eventually kill itself because of its government. Others say there members are rather arrogant about being part of the only Warlight Republic and it's been said that members actively recruitment from other Clans. Whether or not this is true, it's also a fact AOE has been responsible for a couple of public forum wars usually in defence of there clan. It's also said they're actively isn't as good as they say but that still remains a question of debate
