Valhalla Regional Message Board
No problem, life, it happens
*notes HFWI is here*
Yeah, I'm more likely to log into this one if it's in a different region. That way, there's more to talk about.
I'm glad you're here, this region could use more discussions!
What one would I choose?
"All hail the glorious 'Administrator' Laxus Csear, giver of safety and wealth!" shouts Aaron Taffs, the Prefect of the Cult of Divine Nationalism from atop a wooden crate in Upernavik Grand Plaza. "Are not the might and benevolence of the holy 'Administrator' Laxus Csear manifest for all to see? Should we not respond in humble worship? Proclaim your divinity before all, O Great One, and your people shall listen!"
"This is heresy!" pontificates Erica King, a high-ranking clergywoman of a major religion, while proffering a collection plate. "Surely you can't seriously be entertaining delusions of divinity? You would undoubtedly bring divine wrath upon us! I urge you, speak out against these wayward souls and endorse the teachings of our holy writ as the true path to righteousness. Only then can we be assured of continued providence."
"Let's not be too hasty now, there may be an opportunity in this," muses Harry Hendrikson, one of your shrewdest political advisors. "Of course you're not divine, we both know that, but is there really any harm in letting these whack-jobs think you are? Nothing begets obedience like the command of one's god, after all. Perhaps a carefully constructed public statement is in order, one that gives legitimacy to these people's beliefs while avoiding claiming divinity outright. Let people read into it what they want, and if they flock to this 'religion' in droves, well, would it really be so terrible if a large percentage of Paladins became your devoted disciples?"
"Bah! Ridiculous gobbledygook, all of it!" says Bill Malik, controversial atheist author of the book 'Atoms in Space and Relations Between Them - An Exhaustive Account of Existence'. "These cultists are no crazier than any other religious types, and have done far less damage than some I might mention. Take this opportunity to disavow all religion as superstitious nonsense, and throw your support behind reason instead. It's the perfect opportunity to end the tax breaks for people with imaginary friends, and funnel that additional money into the areas it can do some real good, like authors of popular science books!"
"All hail our glorious 'Administrator' Laxus Csear... or face eternal punishment!" shouts a wide-eyed bearded man in sack cloth waving a greasy tract. "Pay no heed to these sectarians, my liege, they have departed from the way of truth! Only we, of the Cult of Nationalist Divinity, have remained faithful in the face of their slanderous impiety. We know you to be an uncompromising and demanding god, intolerant of all false doctrine. We stand ready to convert the masses to your worship, by force if necessary! Starting, of course, with the insufferable heretics of the Cult of Divine Nationalism!"
And what about this too? Hard Choices.
After a very popular domestic bill was shot down due to contradicting existing World Assembly legislation on a similar subject, the Upernavik Observer organized a national poll among subscribers. Leaders of the 'National Sovereignty' and 'International Federalist' camps are meeting in your office to argue their case.
"Micromanagement, micromanagement, MICROMANAGEMENT!!!" your Minister for Domestic Affairs shouts, banging his fists on your table. "Those buffoons are seriously overreaching their authority! Every resolution that infernal Assembly passes is an attack on our ability to pass our own legislation! We can't, and shouldn't, have nations full of fools ignorant to our way of life make our decisions for us. We'd be better off without that godforsaken snakepit... we MUST resign from the World Assembly."
"Think of the CHILDREN," cries Elaine Barnes, your Foreign Minister. "Membership in the World Assembly is vital if Paladin Corporation is to ensure that countries across the multiverse adopt a way of living that is right! I shudder to think of the awfulness that would happen in other nations without our guidance in the World Assembly. Please, 'Administrator' Laxus Csear, we must remain a part of this organisation!"
As the region's religious bastion, I would advocate that you select the 2nd option, the one with the clergywoman.
This one is fairly simple: I assume that if you select the 1st option you leave the world assembly, and if you select the 2nd you stay a part of it.
I want to remain in Wa but I dont. Its some sort of confusing thing for me.
And Im going with the religion for myself maybe.
If you. change your mind, you can reapply as soon as instantly.
