The Black Knights is an alliance that was founded on December 12, 2014, by Yosodog and LordStrum, along with 5 others. It is currently run by Leo the Great. It has been involved in most major conflicts since its creation, such as the FSA-tS War, the Great VE War, the Proxy War, Oktoberfest, the 168 Day War, the Pacific War, the Silent War, Papers, Please, and the Ayyslamic Crusade. The Black Knights also played a major role in Knightfall, claiming victory over the forces of The Knights Radiant with the help of its allies. Its official religion is Ayyslam.


Main article: Charter of The Black Knights

The BK Charter is a document that outlines the principles of the Black Knights, the role of government, and the general rules by which the alliance is run.

Establishment of BKEdit

The Black Knights were established by a small group of players who had migrated from another nation-based game called Cyber Nations. They were Yosodog, Supercheese, Mr. Flubb, LordStrum, P8ntballerdude, Jaguar, and Irule777. A DoE was made a day after its establishment (along with a joke DoW on Guardian, though it was later locked).

Some weeks afterward, the Black Knights became a protectorate under the Syndicate

Growth of BKEdit

Around January and February 2015, the Black Knights was a third-page small alliance (20th - 30th in alliance rank) and went through a few, quiet governmental shifts. However, it then entered its first war, the FSA-tS War, allied with the Syndicate and Viridian Entente against the Frontier Sort Alliance, an alliance on the yellow sphere infamous due to its general instability and frequent raids against other aligned nations. 

In April 2015, the Black Knights reached the top 20 in PnW; the protectorate status of BK was removed on April 6, 2015, and an MDoAP was promptly signed between BK and the Syndicate. An MnDoAP was signed between BK and United Purple Nations on April 27.

On April 20, 2016, BK reached an alliance score of 100,000 for the first time. As of June 12, 2016, BK was the third strongest alliance score-wise, and second largest member wise. As of August 27, 2016, BK was the second strongest alliance score-wise, and largest member wise. As of May 2019, it is the second largest alliance in terms of its score and members.

Government of BK Edit

The government of BK is a hierarchical system lead by the emperor, in which his word is law.

The heir to the throne and second in command is the Viceroy.

Acting under the Viceroy are the various Archdukes who overlook their respected departments.

The heir and the second in command to the respective Archdukes in each department are the First Dukes.

Acting under the Dukes are the respected staff members for that department.

The alliance also has a Senate.
