Another Community Challenge is here! And it’s the last one of the year. (There will be flash challenges in October. November is the prep-month for WordEmber in December) This time we want you to write about an Alliance. A history-making organization of organizations. It can be countries allying against a natural threat or two families banding together with a marriage. Your imagination sets the limits. The rules do to, don’t forget to read those.

Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners, and necessity has made us allies.
―John F. Kennedy

This challenging article should be written in an Organization template. The members of the alliance are other organizations, you do not have to write the other organization articles. You can leave them as stubs.



Was mutual need enough to risk trusting a calculated enemy in hopes of destroying a more powerful one?
― Richelle E. Goodrich, The Tarishe Curse

An alliance with a powerful person is never safe.
