Overview

The Xanthian Order is a relatively new crew formed in October 2016 from the much older Iborian Empire, Luteus Republic, Xenon Empire, and initially Templar. The crew is made up of the three kingdoms that are apart of it; Iboria, Luteus, and Xenon, each with their own leader. It fell apart in 2017, with the Xenon Empire splitting off again and renaming itself Xenia - the spiritual successor to the Xan thian Order.

History

The kingdoms

The Iborian Empire
The Iborian Empire was a crew created by Palmerageddon back in May-June 2015. It grew quickly and became a member of the League of Nations in July 2015. It had a policy of non intervention, and avoided conflict frequently by means of diplomacy. It boasted highly efficient designs and impressive engineering. By October 2016, it had over 50 members, of which only 5 were active.
The Luteus Republic
The Luteus Republic was a crew created by Icanra in January 2015. It is regarded as the first republic of the server, and featured an active senate. It was a member of the LoN since November 2015, and valued close relations with many other crews. It had around 30 members, and accumulated many ruined towns and cities which were fixed up and repurposed. By October 2016, it only had 3 active members.
The Xenon Empire
The Xenon Empire was created by Maximus_Terragon in August 2015. It was formed from the remains of the Ottoman Empire, and features one of the largest ports in the server as its capital. It became a member of the LoN in August 2015, after it became involved in conflict with the Verussian Empire, and both subsequent wars. It grew quickly in the aftermath to around 50 members. By October 2016 it only had 5 active members.
Templars
The Templars was a small crew created by Chailey, Lithvather, and Creepermorderen in March 2016. Despite their small size, they considered themselves a family of sorts. They quickly gained reputation as a strong crew, and fought for the better of the server. In July 2016, after a series of disagreements, they declared war on the British Empire, harming their reputation.

Formation

The Xenon Empire had become an inactive mess, and had been regarded by Bristish Empire as a "useless ally". Tired of it, Maximus_Terragon (who had created close ties to Templar following the war), met with Chailey to discuss a possible merging of Templar and the Xenon Empire.

After a week of discussion, the foundations for a new crew had been created, as well as a name; TXO. They would follow the same ranking system as Templar, but with a mixture of XE and Templar policies. Friday evening on October 25th, Chailey disbanded Templars, and created The Xanthian Order. Soon after Maximus_Terragon disbanded the Xenon Empire. This came to a surprise to many in chat at that time.

Over the next 12 hours, the remaining active Templar members and XE members joined, to bring the crew to 8 members. In the night of Friday to Saturday, Maximus contacted both Palmerageddon and Icanra if they had interest in joining. Reluctantly at first, both agreed to merge being promised high leading ranks, more active members, and being in charge of the members of their crews, creating a simple diplomatic system.

Icanra disbanded the Luteus Republic on Sunday, while Palmerageddon disbanded the Iborian Empire on Monday to complete the list of leaders and merged crews. Thereafter, the crew grew rapidly to over 30 members within a week. Making it at the time the most active crew.

The Templar situation

The members who joined TXO from Templar, were not used to a large active crew. Their element of a 'small family crew' had not been passed onto TXO, which was looking to become the next EE in terms of size. Bit by bit, the Templar members left, leaving only Chailey as the last remaining Templar member, grand master of TXO.

After a while, he too left to re-create the new Templars, with his old crew mates, Lithvather and Creepermorderen.

TXO is currently 4 months old, and has well over 12 active members, excluding those with exams this year. In mid December, TXO was invited into the growing Commonwealth of Nations. By this time, TXO and the Elven Republic were the only remaining League of Nations members. As they were both in the new CoN, the LoN was closed.

Dissolution

In January 2017, Palmerageddon's Java died, to which meant much of the Iborian people, such as Plant___ were left without guidance for sometime, which, in the late Spring of 2017, left the crew and set up her own crew known as PLANT. It was also about this time that Icanra's activity began to slowly disappear, due to limited success of setting up settlements far away from where the main concentration of the Order was, as well as examinations coming up.

The gradual waning of the Order was due to numerous reasons, the crew being more widespread around the map rather than localized in contribution to the goal to set up an Xanathian Continent effected this. The absence of leaders also meant members who were active had no one to lead them or aid them as such, it was also at the time that Maximus_Terragon and Chailey had more pressing matters or other jobs needing to be done around the map.

The spread out members, absence of leadership and all round gradual decay of the Order led it to stagnation and its gradual abandonment as Icanra left the server and Maximus_Terragon and Chailey pursued their own projects and created crews focused on one such locations.

By no means was the Order doomed from the start, but rather a task of which, that due to the nature of the server and events, that it limited its success.

Organization

The TXO is ruled as a semi-democratic monarchy.

The Supreme Master

  • Maximus_Terragon is currently the Supreme Master of TXO. He has the final say on any matter. However, he must abide by the votes from the remaining 3 Masters, and respect the decisions from the crew as a whole. He is responsible for maintaining the crew as a whole, and representing the crew. He is the main representative for TXO globally, and in the Commonwealth of Nations (CoN).

Masters

Each master has one vote, when a matter is put forth. A majority vote will win.

Master of Engineering
  • Palmerageddon is currently the Master of Engineering in the TXO. He is responsible for anything to do with new ship, building, town, and transport designs.

He is second in command for TXO, along with all other Masters when the Supreme Master is away. He is the right-hand man of Maximus_Terragon in the CoN.
Master of Arms
