A cult formed from an atom. The Church of Atom was founded by some former members of Alpha.

Somebody told me when the bomb hits everybody in a 2-mile radius will be instantly sublimated, but if you lay face down on the ground for some time avoiding the residual ripples of heat, you might survive, Permanently !@#$ed up and twisted like you're always underwater refracted. Oh, but if you do go gas, there's nothing you can do if the air that was once you is mingled and mashed with the kicked-up molecules of the enemies former body. Big-kid-tested, mother!@#$er approved!

Charter of the Church of Atom

Atoms love radiates through us all. We all feel his love. Some choose to embrace it, others get sick and die. This is the official charter of the Church of Atom (henceforth CoA)

Article I: Clergy

Section I: Pontifex Atomicus

Once the fallout settled, Atom came from the clouds to reveal himself to James. Atom said to James, “Let the men, women, and children of Orbis come forth to gather and behold the power of Atom! Let those who dwell here in his favored land attend now to the words of the Prophet of Atom!” James would establish CoA and reign supreme as the first Pontifex Atomicus (henceforth “The Pope”).

The Pope has complete and total authority of CoA. They can issue commandments and official church doctrine when warranted. It is recommended The Pope consult with the judgement of the Cardinals on making decisions. The Pope serves for life until he is called back to Atom! 

Section II: Primus Inter Pares

The Primus Inter Pares, first, among equals, is chosen to serve in the absence of The Pope. They are highly devoted, and highly respected member of CoA. They should uphold the core values of Atom and The Pope at all times and when representing CoA. They are responsible for ensuring the will of The Pope is carried out. While the Primus Inter Pares makes decisions in the absence of The Pope, they can be overturned by 3/4th of the remaining Cardinals. The Primus Inter Pares is also in charge of overseeing the election of the new Pope.

Section III: Cardinals

Cardinals are appointed by The Pope. The Pope can appoint as many Cardinals as they wish. The Pope may also assign Cardinals to run the various divisions of government within the Church. Each Cardinal may be assigned a specific domain in which they can spread the word of Atom! Cardinals advise the Pope. The description of the Cardinals can be changed upon the leisure of The Pope. They are also tasked with selecting the new Pope when upon abdication or an unexplained absence of 1 month or more. Cardinals elect a new Pontifex Atomicus with 2/3rds vote. If 2/3rds vote is not reached, they continue to vote until a new pope is elected. During this time all government actions are proposed and then carried out upon simple majority. Cardinals terms are life terms. A Pope can only remove a Cardinal they appointed. If the Cardinal was appointed by a previous Pope, the Pope can call for a vote to remove the Cardinal. Upon 2/3rds majority, the Cardinal is removed.

Cardinal of Protection: 

The Cardinal of Protection is responsible for ensuring the membership of CoA is ready to spread Atom during times of war. They are expected to help The Pope set up defenses of CoA against anyone who wishes to harm Atom. 

Cardinal of Foreign Affairs:

The Cardinal of Foreign Affairs is responsible for maintaining the relationship and spreading the word of Atom to Orbis. They are expected to help the Pope lead the foreign policy of the Church

Cardinal of Finance:

The Cardinal of Finance is responsible for collecting the tithes of the Church. They are expected to manage the bank of CoA and collect the tithes for Atom! The Pope will determine how the funds are used

Cardinal of Internal Affairs:

The Cardinal of Internal Affairs is responsible for the wellbeing and growth of the nucleus. They are expected to manage the growth of CoA and help The Pope recruit new members to serve Atom!

Section IV: Acolytes 

Acolytes of CoA are responsible for assisting Cardinals and The Pope in making decisions. Acolytes are appointed by The Pope and are considered high advisors.

Article II: Membership

Section I: Zealots

Let it serve as a reminder of the Division that has occurred in the past and the resplendence of the promise of our division in the times to come! Give your bodies to Atom, my friends. Release yourself to his power, feel his Glow, and be Divided. There shall be no tears, no sorrow, no suffering, for in the Division, we shall see our release from the pain and hardships of this world. Yea, your suffering shall exist no longer with the embrace of Atom! Members of CoA are known as Zealots. Zealots are blessed by Atom directly and embrace the warm nuclear winds of the glowing ones.

Section II: Requirements for Membership

To gain access in CoA you must meet the following requirements:

  1. Must have a Discord account.
  2. Must have been endorsed by a member of the Clergy or two Zealots.
  3. Must be 100% active throughout the interview process
  4. Accept the word of Atom! 

“Give your bodies to Atom, my friends. Release yourself to his power, feel his Glow, and be Divided. There shall be no tears, no sorrow, no suffering, for in the Division, we shall see our release from the pain and hardships of this world. Yea, your suffering shall exist no longer; it shall be washed away in Atom's Glow, burned from you in the fire of his brilliance” - Pontifex Atomicus, James II

Subsection A: Interview Process

Upon a heathen deciding they are ready to spread the word of Atom they will enter into the interview period. This period of time will consist of a 96 hour interview with the Clergy. Upon the conclusion of the interview, a 24 hour vote will be held by the Clergy where it will be determined if the Worshiper if ready for Atom’s atomic embrace!

Section III: Activity 

Once nations are accepted to CoA, they must maintain a minimum activity requirement of at least one forum visit every 7 days. After 7 days inactivity on Discord, the Cardinal of Internal Affairs will send the member a PM notice reminding them to visit discord. After 10 days of no activity, that member will be moved to “Applicant.” After 15 days the Cardinal of the Internal Affairs may motion The Pope to vote to kick the member out of CoA. This section is void for members in “vacation mode.”

Section IV: Tithes

At any point in time, the Cardinal of Finance may institute alliance taxes, with the approval of The Pope. If you pay your tithe, Atom will bless you

Article III: Heretics and Heresy

If, for any reason, you are deemed to be a douchebag, jackass, asshat, dildo or fuckhead by any Cardinal, you will be expelled promptly and likely declared war upon, with approval of The Pope. Is this democracy? No. Is this fair? No. Do we care? Fuck no. Don't like it? Too bad, go take a bath with a toaster, chode. Praise be to Atom!

Article IV: Treaties

The Pope has the sole power to sign and cancel any treaty CoA may be involved with. The Cardinal of Foreign Affairs can carry out this task with approval from the Pope. 

Article V: Crusades

In the event of international conflict, those who do not believe in the power of Atom will be brought to the inquisition. The Pope can call forth the Church to sendforth Atom’s greatest gift. Nuclear Annihilation. Only The Pope can authorize war. Atom’s judgement will be swift on its enemies.

Article VI: Operation Arctic Dave

Only the holiest of believers can know. Fuck you.

Article VII: The Partisan Accords

While some nonbelievers wish to do harm to Atom, others attempt to destroy our way of life. Atom commands we all should live in peace together, but there comes a time when we must take action. In the event of the dissemination of private CoA matters, the offender or offending alliance will be held accountable regardless of the method through which they came into possession of the information. CoA will recognize said action as a declaration of war. So don’t do it.

Article VIII: Elections

When The Pope is called back to Atom’s warm embrace, CoA must find a new Pope. Anyone is eligible to become the new Pope. The election will run until the Cardinals select the new Pope by a 2/3rds majority.

Article IX: Honorary Titles

As the word of Atom grows, his most devout members become recognized as having an exceptional degree of holiness or likeness or closeness to Atom. We pay tribute and remember these members as “Saints.”

Foundation and History:

After the Church created the Convent in May 2020, it has seen massive growth. The Convent of Atom started strongly, with refugees from "The Kree Empire" joining, after the Cardinal of Foreign Affairs Deebo asked both Kree members and New World Order (an alliance made after TKE died for unknown reasons) to merge in CoA. Foyndal (former in-game leader and currently in GATO) organized programs to assist Pupils with direct cash transactions and grants. These programs were effective, some new members were admitted and all seemed to go well. However, as Global War 16 came by, the Church and the Convent was on the receiving end of the massive dogpile. For many of the Pupils, this was the first global war they had ever fought in. The Pupils weren't prepared to fight in a war where they were outnumbered 3:1. The Pupils made their own "counter groups" to fight the invading attackers, and did so with moderate success. In the middle of the dogpile, more drama ensued. Josè, a Deacon of the old government, reported Foyndal and Valentine for trying to make a secret alliance with GATO (Global Atlantic Treaty Organization). Foyndal was in their alliance in another game called Cyber Nations, and wanted to strengthen them here in P&W as well. Josè sent James (the leader of the church), a few screenshots of the incident and called it a coup. As a result, Foyndal was ousted and left for GATO. In the meantime, Valentine, also ratted out by Josè, was given a second chance after talks with the Pope and Cardinals. Kitseva Violet now got Foyndal's old job of being the in-game leader of the Convent. However, Josè himself, dissatisfied that he wasn't promoted, asked (then-Pupils) Wreckpro and Valentine to join him in a rebellion against the Church. Wreckpro declined but wished Josè luck. Valentine, now a Zealot, also declined and, after a long discussion, bid farewell to Josè. As a result, Josè left the game for his hobby Boxing.

The new regime took a hardline approach to the war, obey orders, or get kicked out. This was because the Pupils would be given an offer of free rebuild aid and full membership after the war. The Pupils obliged and continued to fight the brutal war and the attackers from "nameless alliance". After a few weeks, the war was over. The 45 day dogpile led to the score of the Convent decreasing from 43k to 27k. This did however, not matter, as the Pupils were given an offer of free rebuild aid and full membership. In the wake of the war, Gojira, an important member who helped manage the bank, left because of "issues with the leadership". Several Pupils were promoted to Zealots and received massive funds in rebuild aid. As Zealots they would also participate in the Church's communist welfare program. The Pupils that stayed in the Convent faced major difficulties rebuilding, but by January 24th, the convent was back at 38,000 score and was good as new.
