Some say we’re a façade, a corporate shell for scum and villainy.

I call it industry.



History

D: Hey Jim.

J: Yes, Davidson?

D: I want an org.

J: Why Davidson? It’s a lot of work.

D: I want an org.

J: Davidson, there are already lots of good orgs.

D: I – W A N T – A N – O R G!

J: Okay, Davidson, I’ll make an organization with you.

Manifesto

The lust for money and power. . .

Without being dicks.

Any corporation worthy of its title seeks growth and prosperity, but the good ones never do so at the cost of their reputation. MDN doesn’t achieve its goals by bullying others into submission. If we engage in corporate warfare, no one would ever know.

Prosperity through cooperation

MDN is not exclusive. We are diversifying into every field, but we are by no means the only organization in operation. MDN seeks to build strong relations with like-minded organizations. If you’re an org and wish to do business with us, we’d be happy to engage.

Multifaceted Multiskilled

What good is a person in a job they don’t want? None at all. MDN has no limits. Be a bounty hunter for a day and touring magnate the next. We believe there is opportunity in any profession. We are engaged in all the departments listed on our charter. Don’t see your interests listed? No problem, MDN can find a way.

Want the benefits of being in a pirate group and the legal power of a corporation? No problem. We do not discriminate against your history. We only care about the here and now.

Officially, MDN is a legal, law-abiding entity.

Noob Friendly

We were all noobs once, some of us have forgotten that. MDN doesn’t.

Wargaming

MDN prepares itself for action on the field of battle and in the boardroom. Coming soon, this corporation will be simulating various engagements. As we grow, so will the diversity of our simulations.

Fight every battle, everywhere, always, in your mind. Everyone is your enemy, everyone is your friend, every possible series of events is happening, all at once. Live that way, and nothing will surprise you. Everything that happens will be something that you’ve seen before” – Lord Baelish

J: So Davidson, what kind of organization are we going to be?

D: The middlemen of crime.

J: Wait, what?

D: What?

Charter

The Japanese have a saying:

“A man is whatever room he is in,” and right now, you’re at MDN.

J: Who you talking to Davidson?

D: Uhhh no one?

J: Sure Davidson, sure.

While we officially do not condone illegal piracy, you will not be penalized for it. Consequently, if while at MDN, you exhibit unacceptable behavior, we will not hesitate to feed you to the lions.

Use your good judgment before acting.

Do not betray your fellow members and MDN affiliates.
