The President manages the Abassa Server, also known as The Paradox, home server. Elections will occur July 8–12, 1744!

(PDA) Paradox Department Administrations

(PDA) is where any ordinary member can come and form a department within The Paradox. All that has to be done is that member leave a message on the President's talk page, aka, Benjamin Macmorgan, and if he approves it, you can found it. You can then talk to a Paradox Wikia Administrator and we might even consider adding your deparment on our home page! Here is a list of all the current Paradox Departments.


1.) Department Of Justice
Paradox Spanish

  • This Department is lead by Overlord Hippie. This department has a small group of Paradox Officers, which enforce laws in the guild. It was founded on June 19, 1744! This Department is currently the oldest of all of the Departments.


2.) Department Of Rebel Control

  • This Department is lead by Colonel Ryan Blademonk (LEFT). This department handles all small Rebellion groups which attempt to rise against The Paradox, or boycott any laws which it has passed. This has an average sized Militia type army which is always ready for action. When anything occurs, Colonel Blademonk immediately teleports to the area of incidence with a small militia force. They quickly form a firing line and open fire on the Rebels. It was founded on June 23, 1744!

3.) (PDSI) The Paradoxian Department of Special Investigations

The Paradoxian Department of Special Investigations (or the PDSI), is an in-guild special operations force founded and commanded by Officer Lord Jeremiah Garland. The PDSI is a squad of special soldiers trained to do numerous jobs for the guild. These jobs include spying on enemy guilds, assassination work, and being the secret guards of the GM. Our mission statement is to protect the main central force of the guild, and keep order in The Paradox. The PSDI is broken down into five subcatergories: assassins, spies, saboteurs, conquistadors, and scouts.


Assassins

The Assassins are the most powerful group of the PDSI. Their main duty is to secretly and quietly dispatch of all targets assigned to them by the GM, Sir Carlos Clemente. The founder and commander of the PSDI, Lord Jeremiah Garland, is an assassin. The primary weapon of the assassins is the dagger (both primary dagger and throwing knives). Here are the requirements to be an assassin:
Spanish-Flag

The Spanish Flag!


  • Be level 35 or above in notoriety.
  • Be level 20 or above in dagger.
  • Be able to brew any "Swift Foot" potion, as this makes you faster. Slyness and stealth is everything in an assassin.
  • Be sure to have dark clothing; nothing eye-catching or flashy.

Head Assassin: OPEN


Assassin: Jack Squidhazzard


Assassin: Davy Daggerskull


Assassin: James Bladebones


NOTE: Lord Garland will hold assassin training every few days. All are free to attend but you still must meet the requirements to be a certified assassin.

Spies
Paradox Battle Scenes! Played to Paradoxian National Anthem!05:04

Paradox Battle Scenes! Played to Paradoxian National Anthem!

Whenever The Paradox makes a new enemy or goes to war, it is the spies' responibilities to infiltrate that guild and find out all they can. Spies must be able to act quick on their feet, always be ready, and come up with good stories so they don't blow their cover ups. Whenever enemy officers are holding a meeting, it is also the spies' responsibility to find the location of the meeting, and listen in without giving themselves away. Here are the requirements to be a spy:


  • Be level 20 or above in notoriety.
  • Be able to access enemy guilds with ease, and not reveal themselves or the guild they work for.
  • Be able to brew any "Phantom Spirits" potion, as these allow you turn invisible. That is necessary for listening in on enemy meetings.
  • Be able to put on disguises; if it is an EITC guild you are spying on, wear EITC clothes. If it is a pirate guild, wear pirate clothes. If the guild has a dress code, wear it.


Spy Captain: Zion


Spy: David Ropeginty


Spy: Dalton


Spy: Johnny


Saboteurs
Cypress Hill - Insane In The Membrane03:30

Cypress Hill - Insane In The Membrane

The main goal of the saboteurs is to sabotage enemy bases, ships, or meetings. Their main weapon is grenades. If ever an enemy ship threatens to attack the Paradoxian Fleet, it is up to the saboteurs to sneak on board the enemy ship and to stop the en route ship using their explosives. Like the spies and assassins, however, they must do this stealthfully. The "smoke grenade" is the saboteurs best friend. After thier mission is complete, drop a smoke grenade to cover up your get away. Also, once enemy bases are found, the saboteurs can hook the place in explosives, to leave a surprise for the enemies. Here are the requirements to be a saboteur:


  • Be level 30 or above in notoriety.
  • Be level 15 or above in grenades.
  • Unlock Smoke Grenades.
  • Be able to wreck havoc with your grenades.


Saboteur Grenadier: Jack Swordmenace


Saboteur: Eric Machawk


Saboteur: Robert Shipstealer


Saboteur: Catscog The Pirate


Conquistadors

The primary job of the conquistador is to form small squads with other conquistadors, and raid enemy bases. Once the location of the enemy base is found out by the spies, the conquistadors raid the bases and wreck havoc, collect the enemy's loot, weapons, and supplies, and take hostages. This should be done, though, without alerting the enemy's main army. Therefore, the conquistadors should get in and out of the enemy base quickly. The conquistadors can also raid enemy ships. They also may be used to enter battles first, clearing out all the weaker enemy units and crippling the main enemy army before sending in the Paradoxian main army. The main weapons of the sconquistadors are the flintlock and bayonet. Here are the requirements to be a conquistador:


  • Be level 25 or above in notoriety.
  • Be level 15 or above in gun.
  • Be able to brew any of the "Marksman Draught" potions, as this enhances your pistol.
  • Be able to work with other conquistadors as a team.

Scouts
50 Cent-I'll Whip Ya Head Boy06:18

50 Cent-I'll Whip Ya Head Boy

Ranger Theme Song!

The main objective of the scout is, when in battle, to go ahead of the main Paradoxian Army and seek out the enemy. They take a head count of the enemy army, and confer how many enemies there are before returning. They also scout out all land in front of them, so the generals of the army are not blind. As soon as the enemy army is detected, the scout can find a secluded spot a good distance away from the enemy army, and, with their muskets, begin to snipe soldiers on the front line. Until they get detected, this is a good way to limit the enemy army's troops, making it an easier battle for The Paradox. The main weapon of the scout is the musket. Here are the requirements to be a scout:


  • Be level 35 or above in notoriety.
  • Be level 20 or above in gun.
  • Be able to brew any of the "Marksman Draught" potions, as these enhance your musket. (Also a "Phantom Spirits" potion would help).
  • Be able to wear camo (green clothing) to blend in and not be caught.
