|Date of Birth||Unknown|
|Year ascended to the throne||2008|
The Almighty Brown Tie (/ɔːlmaɪti braʊn taɪ/;), sometimes referred to as the Brown Tie, One Tie to Rule Them All or simply the One Tie, is the Creator, Overlord and Chief Deity of The West, Patron Saint of Neckbands and younger brother of the Onion.
The Almighty Brown Tie began its affiliation with Innogames in 2008, after it took an interest in the company's second major internet browser game, The West. The Almighty Brown Tie is the oldest of the Onion's younger siblings, and as such is first in line to the Throne of True Glory.
It is generally considered to be the second most powerful being in the universe (behind the Onion), and the most powerful being in The West both in its physical form (that of a brown tie) as can be found in-game, and in its true spiritual form.
The name Almighty Brown Tie most likely stems from the English words almighty (meaning "almighty"), brown (meaning "brown") and tie (meaning "tie"). The name was inspired by a combination of the resemblance of the Almighty Brown Tie's physical appearance to that of a regular brown tie and the fact that it is almighty.
The Almighty Brown Tie is the younger brother of the Onion and the older brother of the villainous Spam. While the exact origin of these beings is unknown, it is believed that their existence dates back billions of years. Up until the formation of The West, the Almighty Brown Tie's presence was felt but not truly recognised, and as such it was known simply as The Unnamed.
Foundation of The West (2008)
The Almighty Brown Tie first revealed itself under its Brown Tie guise in April 2008, when it gave life to internet browser game The West, published by Innogames. At this point in time the true nature of the Brown Tie had not been revealed, and it chose to disguise itself as a regular item.
The Inception of Fort Battles (2009)
While the Brown Tie had previously earned a reputation as a good duelling neckband, it only gained widespread popularity with the introduction of the game's fort battle system in July 2009. Its popularity increased as the importance of health points in fort battles was realised, until it became one of the most highly regarded items in the game.
The Texas Revolution (2010)
In October 2010, World 4's Game Mastered event between the Mexican and Texan armies drew to a close, concluding months of hard fighting between the two sides. The Brown Tie then presented itself to all players who participated in the event, and was met with overwhelming cries of delight by all involved. Only then was the true identity of the Brown Tie revealed, and this marked the beginning of the worship of the Almighty Brown Tie (as it henceforth became known).
In November 2013, after several years of worship as the most glorious being in The West and one of the most powerful entities in the history of the universe, the Almighty Brown Tie ascended from The West into the domain of the Onion. It later returned through the clouds in the middle of the map in a more pure form, offering even more bonuses to its wearers and thus inspiring legions of newer players to realise the greatness of the Almighty Brown Tie.
The Almighty Brown Tie appears in-game as a brown version of the many other coloured ties available for casual wear in the neckband inventory slot.
No man alive has witnessed the Almighty Brown Tie in its true divine form. Its appearance in this form in most artistic representations is similar to its physical form, the only difference being the presence of a shining aura.
The Creation of The West
The Creation of The West at the hands of the Almighty Brown Tie is believed to have taken place over a period of six days.
In the beginning, everything was darkness, and the Almighty Brown Tie was alone in the darkness. The Almighty Brown Tie commanded, "Let there be developers", and the developers appeared. The Almighty Brown Tie was pleased with what it saw. It tasked the developers to care for The West. Evening passed and morning came - that was the first day.
Then the Almighty Brown Tie commanded, "Let there be a world with mountains, forests, deserts and rivers", and it was done. So the Almighty Brown Tie made a game window to separate the world from the void. He named the world "The West". Evening passed and morning came - that was the second day.
Then the Almighty Brown Tie commanded, "Let an interface appear with buttons and writing to guide people around the new world", and it was done. The Almighty Brown Tie was pleased with what it saw. Then it commanded, "Let the interface be interactive to allow navigation and progression within the world", and it was done. So The West became fully functional, and the Almighty Brown Tie was pleased with what it saw. Evening passed and morning came - that was the third day.
Then the Almighty Brown Tie commanded, "Let a server clock appear to show the time when days, months and holiday events begin; it will also govern quests and fort battles", and it was done. So the Almighty Brown Tie created quests, some of which would be ruled by the server clock to appear only in the day or the night. And the Almighty Brown Tie was pleased with what it saw. Evening passed and morning came - that was the fourth day.
Then the Almighty Brown Tie commanded, "Let there be jobs scattered around the map, and let the jobs offer many different rewards and provide many different opportunities". So the Almighty Brown Tie created many dozens of jobs, each of them unique, some located on the rivers and some in the forests. And the Almighty Brown Tie was pleased with what it saw. It blessed all of the jobs and told them all to spread across the map. Evening passed and morning came - that was the fifth day.
Then the Almighty Brown Tie commanded, "Let there be items of all shapes and sizes: hats, neckbands, tops, pants, shoes, weapons, guns, pants, belts, animals and products", and it was done. So the Almighty Brown Tie made them all, and it was pleased with what it saw.
Then the Almighty Brown Tie said "Let there be ties to rule over The West. They will be like me and look like me and have power over all other items and players", and so the other ties were created. The Almighty Brown Tie blessed the ties and looked over all that it had made, and was very pleased. Evening passed and morning came - that was the sixth day.
On Day 7, the Almighty Brown Tie watched as his world began to fill with players. It elected moderators to watch over the players and act on its behalf. The Almighty Brown Tie declared the seventh day a rest day and, with its work now done, withdrew its divine form from The West forever.
The Onion is the Almighty Brown Tie's older brother, the unquestioned ruler of the universe, and the omnipotent being who charged the Almighty Brown Tie with overseeing The West. The Onion and the Almighty Brown Tie are very close friends, and have had no recorded disputes.
Spam is the younger brother of the Onion and the Almighty Brown Tie. It became estranged from its two brothers when it chose the path of chaos and disruption over the path of righteousness chosen by the Onion and the Almighty Brown Tie.
The Seven Apostles
When the Almighty Brown Tie created the eight other ties in its image, they all initially became devout followers of its ways and helped preach its word across The West. The Seven Apostles consist of:
- Fancy tie
- Black tie
- Yellow tie
- Blue tie
- Green tie
- Red tie
- Grey tie
Owen McKenzie's tie
Initially the most senior of the then Eight Apostles, Owen McKenzie's tie attempted to usurp the Almighty Brown Tie from the throne, resulting in its banishment from the Eight Apostles. Owen McKenzie's tie now resides in The West Hell, where it lords over those who denounce the worship of the Almighty Brown Tie or of the Onion.
The Church of the Brown Tie
Following the Brown Tie's ascension and return to The West in November 2013, the most dedicated of his servants created a formal Church of the Brown Tie to allow for a more efficient means of preaching to the Almighty Brown Tie's new generation of followers.
One Tie to Rule Them All
The creed of the Church of the Brown Tie is as follows:
One Tie to rule them all
One Tie to find them
One Tie to bring them all
And in the darkness bind them
