Well, as some of you know, me and denodon has been working on combining our AUs(Gotrige(http://www.shipbucket.com/forums/viewto ... =14&t=2301
) and Seiran(http://www.shipbucket.com/forums/viewto ... =14&t=1857
). After some thinking, we decided to make an alliance, not entirely different from the Anglo-Japanese treaty.
For the sake of conveniance, we also decided on posting a separate thread for the treaty and historical updates that concerns both our AUs, so y'all won't have to read it twice.
Here is the treaty itself.
