World Factbook Entry

LinkSpecOps was established in 1928 to handle policing duties "too unusual or too specialized" to be handled by the regular police. Among its many divisions are The ChronoGuard, antiterrorism, and the Literary Detectives who travel into the world of books to maintain law and order. Spec Ops was originally part of the Republic of England but has since been privatized by the Goliath Corporation.

We are open to all worlds but especially ones that are part of the book world.

For those who don't know we are based on the fictional? world created by Jasper Fforde and his Thursday Next series of books.

We are especially open to embassies with all regions whose exploits and tales have been told in books.

Embassies: Mystria, Dune, The Mysterious Island, The Ascendancy, Serenity, The Island of Mythology, The Illuminati, Iura Pecunia et libertas, League of Cobalt Nations, Sauron, The Dirt Alliance, Turkic Union, The Bar on the corner of every region, and Orthanc at Isengard.

Tags: Surreal, Fandom, Role Player, Silly, and Minuscule.

I've now read this, and second the recomendation.

OKay, then. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the reccomendation

Those Meddling Kids is (or "are"?) my own latest puppet, here for now unless & until I can think of a better location.
Isn't it surprising how many good names for nations are still available when one looks?!?


That is a great name for a nation. Welcome to my tiny home

I'd been reading some 'Scooby-Doo Team-Up' recently, one of the few "fun" comics that DC now publishes.


I see that Dreamworld looks as though the invaders have left, and so might be open to renewing embassies...

Literary Detectives

Your proposal for the construction of embassies with Dreamworld has been sent.

Those Meddling Kids

* You open the door to the Bar on the Corner and a barman with a big grin on his face welcomes you while walking towards you from behind the counter*

Ladies and Gentlemen, what a pleasure! *bows*, I'm honored to welcome you as guests in our facilities! This is a bar in your region! So you can access it conveniently from here (via embassy). No need to move your tired bodies! Isn't that awesome! The first guest of every region gets a drink for free!

*holds the door open for you with one hand while it so happened that he is holding a bottle of your favorite drink in the other hand*

Take a seat and enjoy a drink, or have fun with pool billiard, darts and the gambling machines. We also serve some delicious choice of food!

Btw, let me know if you know how to mix drinks. Trust me, people here are very generous with tips! And folks always fall in love with the person handling the cocktail shaker ; )

*you immediately know that you would sell your soul for a starvation wage but you feel tempted. Do you? It's a luxury to have the possibility to be a bartender via embassy! Just look at this wall of bottles behind the counter.amazing*

"We're too young to go into a bar..."
