Sc0rched Earth was formed by Ascent of Ages, Oddball Navy, Honour Bound, Aurora Security and Domination of Cosmic Anomalies as a 0.0 alliance, with the goal of succeeding where CAN had failed. With less than 200 pilots and no allies BYRN quickly took its first station in FI01-8 in the Fade region. As FI0 was being secured, BYRN built a relationship with Penumbra Alliance, who were taking Cloud Ring from Immoral Dragons at the time. Once FI0 was secure and sovereignty 3 was achieved, Sc0rched Earth mobilized to assist Penumbra with invading Cloud Ring.
As the MAX Campaign drew to a close, the other parts of Fade were sold by members of the GBC to Space Technologies. Sc0rched Earth took advantage of the situation to kick Space Technologies out and claim all of Fade for themselves, eventually controlling all 4 station systems in the region. At the same time, BYRN grew to a medium sized alliance.
After the rest of Fade was secured, the Northern Coalition began invasions of ROIR in and G00DFELLAS space in Deklein. BYRN made an agreement to help the NC for the period of that conflict, and to be reset afterward. Deklein was taken in a short amount of time, and as the NC reset BYRN, Mostly Harmless and Guardian Federation began to attack BYRN's space in Fade. Outnumbered, BYRN decided to ask for an armistice to withdraw their assets.
As they relocated to Empire, Tau Ceti Federation, the only NC entity to maintain blue status with BYRN during the attack on Fade, offered BYRN the J-9M7D Constellation in Wicked Creek in exchange for assistance assaulting the GBC-controlled region.
The invasion of Wicked Creek was successful and the GBC forces were eliminated. BYRN began to expand from the constellation. Annexing several smaller entities, including B.L.A.C.K. (an attempt to reform IAC), BYRN quickly grew to a much larger alliance.
Defense - Aggression
The invasion of Wicked Creek by Aggression., The Firm, Tenth Legion, Minor Threat., KrautbreaK, and Atlas led to a bloody two week long war with TIFA, Red Alliance, and TCF coming to the aid of BYRN. The apex of the fight saw five titans actively engaged with almost 200 capital ships and roughly 500 support ships in the same system. In the end, the defenders held the field.
After five months of successful expansion, BYRN began to collapse internally. Internal fighting led to more than half of the membership leaving over the span of a few months. With only about a thousand pilots remaining, BYRN quickly began to be over-run by RA, KARMA, -RZR-, and the break-off alliance, TNT. After two months, Atlas began taking territories, as it had become apparent that BYRN was no longer able to hold its space. Pressed from all sides, with even more internal turmoil, BYRN's collapse continued. In 2009.09, BYRN lost its last system, 1-7B6D. Shortly after this event, the alliance became a shell.
At this point BYRN is little but an empty shell.
