Imperial Ally of The Year-2011Edit

2011, Zerouh-Universal TriumvirateEdit

This subscription of the Imperial Ally of the Month for May shall cover Zerouh, he’s the current Major Executive, one of the three original Founding Executives and the Idealist for the Universal Triumvirate. This article includes views from several in The Empire, the Executive Branch of the Triumvirate and from Zerouh himself to help build a picture for the selected Imperial Ally of the Month. The Director of the Imperial News Beureu, Serena Moon has selected Zerouh for his commitment to working to get The Empire and Triumvirate to sign a treaty, that took so long to sign due to several factors, before he stepped down, as he said he would not return if the Triumvirate not even if it was about to fall apart.

To the outside world he’s mistakenly seen as the Triumvirate’s leader when to the others in the Executive Branch, he’s a simple guy that seeks no gains but to improve the Triumvirate. The role of the Major Executive in the Universal Triumvirate, according to it’s page in the runescape clan wiki “They act as a “manager” for the Triumvirate sites.... and act as someone to keep the Executive Branch maintained if need be.” Zerouh is described as a “very critical” and “almost a necessity” to the Triumvirate, working to protect what he helped founded, The Universal Triumvirate. It’s been said that Zerouh is “withdrawing and putting more on the rest of the executives so that they can lead the Triumvirate without him.”

Zerouh, has been descibed as a likeble guy: “mature” and “knows his stuff” are just a few words people have said about Zerouh. Using his know how in politics has helped to be “one of the most impartial executives in the Triumvirate.” As the founder, it’s Zerouh’s responsibility to “keep the ideas going.” Though according to some, even from Zerouh, not all the ideas are perfect. One included Zerouh’s supporting Red’s election as Head of Clan Relations, who would be later impeached. Zerouh was described as being too sympathetic for others who face trials for various reasons, even to the point of giving some people too much slack. But more often then not is the case that people love how he has great ideas, helps them out and listening to his ideas. One such failure described by some has been the idea on a social branch, it was supposed to help clans in providing support and manage community events, it failed due to lack of initiative the branch positions offered and possible corruption over time. And some have a few choice words to describ Zerouh's weaknesses, but we'll only mention that some don't like his elitist personality and being a bit over confident. Though Zerouh has faults like all people, people still like working with him cause "it's fun, intense, and sometimes lengthy. Zerouh keeps the Executive Branch to high standards and so they don't slip up on things.

The most difficult descissions Zerouh has ever had to make have been put forth by the other Executives and Zerouh:

  1. Staying pacifist through everything.
  2. Leaving office
  3. Setting up the Court issues.
  4. The impeachment of Red.
  5. Keeping Ascencia in office.

Zerouh, has plans to step down on June 25th, 2011 from Major Executive of the Triumvirate and membership in the Triumvirate. As he leaves, he expects that the other executives respect their heritage, founding principles, and everything they've have built up.

Because what all Triumvirate members agree to Zerouh's greatest acheivement is the founding of The Universal Triumvirate.

Found here in the forums.

"By Serena Moon, Media Director

Cptn Aubrey returned to The Empire yesterday on April 19, 2011 after the Emperor E-mailed him to return, when asked Emperor Hester said he "went to the first Empire forums that still had Aubrey's E-mail address and E-mailed Aubrey to see if it would work to get him back." Cptn Aubrey's return couldn't have been perfect, in-activity plaguing The Empire and given Aubrey's great organizational skills and motivational spirit will un-doubtedly push The Empire forward. When asked what his plans are Aubrey commented, “I have taken command of the military, and am setting up goals, long and short term to bolster the strength of the Empire." Emperor Hester confirmed this statement with an added, "he's in temporary command of the military, as a Central Government officer, he still has to go threw me with his plans and so far their coming along great." And Cptn Aubrey is happy that The Empire "Finally!" signed a treaty with the Triumvirate.

Cptn Aubrey, at the time of his leaving The Empire earlier this year, for real world reasons, held the positions of; The Emperor's Chief of Staff and a member of The Imperial Ruling Council of which all positions he held were returned to him as promised and wanted by the Council those months ago. When looking at the old forums Emperor Hester commented on, Cptn Aubrey currently is a holder of the: Supporter of The Empire Ribbon, Constitution Drafter, Central Government Cross: Class Gold, Imperial Management and Administration Cross: Class Gold, Imperial Center for Recruitment Member and The Good Conduct Award.

Clearly, The Empire has gained a valuable member.

TDL Certification Available: 5/3/2011 [Triumvirate News]Edit

By the Triumvirate, reported by The Empire "The Executive Branch passed a lengthy bill several days ago to create an internationally recognized and practical method for distinguishing advanced legal knowledge. The bill, which detailed the process and effects of this new TDL Certification, allows for any individual to get the certification even if they are not in any way affiliated with the Triumvirate. This certification is achievable after taking a series of tests on basic law and legal concepts, advanced United States Constitutional law, Triumvirate law, and legal interpretation. The Triumvirate fully recognizes this certification and offers many things for those who currently possess certification such as full access to legal records, legal counsel, and legal resources. The Triumvirate Executive Branch is looking into expanding and getting this certification recognized and honored by other domains besides the Triumvirate such as other large clans and allies. Those who have questions or are interested in acquiring certification may do so by contacting myself.   ゼロウ Talk   18:56, May 1, 2011 (UTC)"

Emperor Hester scammed of 27.5 Million GP!Edit

Found here in The Empire's forums.

"By Serena Moon, Media Director

May 15th threw 16th, 2011. Emperor Hester was scammed of what was quoted “27.5 million gold coins” by Cmcspeedy3. According to Emperor Hester knew Cmcspeedy3 for a couple months and felt more at ease lending him the money. When asked how it was scammed from him, Emperor Hester replied: “At first Cmcspeedy3 said he needed 5 million to level up cooking to 99, then needed 12.5 million to buy an easter egg from a friend for 20 million while he would pay 7.5 million, in return I would have gotten 70 million as easter eggs are worth 91.5 million, after he said his friend wanted 10 million more i handed him another 10 million and then he logged off and left the clan list.” I asked the Emperor what was the damage to The Empire and he replied that “The finance budget has been severely damaged” The finance and budget can be found on this google document

The scam, has caused the Emperor’s stock value to drop by 27.5k gold coins, and Emperor Hester sold A Beast Life 867 shares, “ 800 sold at 28K value, 67 at 25.6K value” so it’s suspected that Beast is going to be very mad.

Emperor Hester was also asked if there would be a policy placed on him loaning out money to others and he responded that “There will be a sever limit and restrictions on loans from me!!!”

Being a member of The Empire since day one, I can personally say that Emperor Hester can no longer say that he’s never had a major crisis to deal with.

Emperor hester on who he wants as major executive in the Triumvirate. June 9, 2011Edit

By and released by Serena Moon, Media Director.

At the moment, Zerouh the current major executive of the Triumvirate is getting ready to step down as a member of the Triumvirate and as major executive, from several executive sources and The Empire's emperor there is an "election" of sorts for the next major executive. So, the news bereau wanted to know the emperor's stance on the major executive on The Empire's ally.

Emperor Hester without hesitation answered, "Arnold." That would be Arnold Ogamon, "Because he'd be best suited" the emperor was asked to expand on that, " he doesn't have to run his own clan and from what i've heard he doesn't play runescape, since the role of the Major Executive is to manage Triumvirate sites the job would take away from those who play the game mainly, and those who have their own clan."

From hearing the emperor in the Imperial Ruling Council he talks alot to Zerouh to get opinions, so it's suspected that the emperor also would want Arnold's opinion as he's the chief attorney in the Triumvirate as well.

-Media Director, Serena Moon

State of Emergency Declaration Passes through Council: July 10, 2011Edit
