The Order does not exist. This thread merely exists to inform you of this fact, that there is not, never has been, and never will be a Minecraft clan by the name of "The Order". Any idea to the contrary is likely proffered by tinfoil-hat-wearing mentally infirm redneck conspiracy theorists.
If such a clan were indeed to exist, however, it would exist for this purpose: To use economic, political, and cultural manipulation within Survival Multiplayer to the fullest extent possible, towards the goal of making Minecraft as fun as possible. It would also exist for the members to have some fun on their own on the side. They would likely have networks of secret castles for the storage of resources essential to their goals, and they would likely manage a series of front businesses and proxy armies.
Their rules would be simple enough: As the goal is to make Minecraft more fun, first of all, do not grief. This would be punished harshly, by an edict sent to every member of the Order to kill the offender on sight, and continue doing so forever. Secondly, do not kill those who you know to be other members of the Order. Thirdly, do not embezzle resources from the Order. This might not be punished so harshly. There is no requirement to obey commands, though if you do not obey commands you might not receive all of the benefits of being a part of the Order.
The members of such an organization would be arranged in a cell-structure: Each cell would have one leader and three members. These members would be leaders of their own cells, and so on and so forth. All of the members of each tier of cells would mingle freely with one another and know eachother, but they might not know all of those above them. The membership list of the order would almost certainly be hidden from the public eye, but on this particular board I would not be able to continue to inform you of the Order's non-existence unless three members are prominently displayed, so we'll just pretend that certain people are members of this pretend organization.
0th Echelon: ?
1st Echelon: 3 open slots
2nd Echelon: 9 open slots
3rd Echelon: 27 open slots
Do you think if the order was real they would allow another non-"the order" Cell (about 3-5 people hypothetically) to ally with them and carry out their orders like a normal cell?
If Not I'd like to join this "order" if it existed, I think I have knowledge and willpower that they could use if they existed. Anyways if they existed they should contact me privately. Gee, sure is conspiracy in here.
