It's odd because I'd think the card game would have come before the computer game and yet here we are.

This is my new issue, please review.

Do you dare to look behind the curtain?

I don't remember exactly when I created Lady Zaharra. At a guess it was probably at least five years ago, specifically for NationStates, and started out as just a name for my nation's leader. Over time she started to take on aspects of a pair of older characters that I'd been playing around with for over a decade.

One was from the early days of Everquest (and I'm talking 1999 early). That character was a necromancer, who openly served the god of disease, but who was also able to walk freely through every 'good' city in the game (thanks to a LOT of faction grinding). One time, during an expedition to a dungeon of sorts called Mistmoor, I straight up told my friends that if things went south, I was gating (porting) out of the zone and leaving them all to die. They laughed about it, even after I did just that. From stuff like that came the idea of a character that was 'evil' but who worked with and helped 'good' people. Who made no secret of the fact that she was only helping because it served her purposes to do so, and who repeatedly warned the 'good' folks that they'd be fools to trust her.

The second character had the same name as the first one, but was otherwise quite different, and was developed during my fan-fic writing days, as a foil for another writer's...what I would call a Mary Sue self insert author avatar. Without going into too much detail, the other writer would stick this character into various fictional universes, where said character would suddenly be better and more popular than any of the established characters. I'm sure you all have some idea what I'm talking about. Anyway, the particulars of my own character (who was also an author avatar since her name was my pen name) were that she was ancient, powerful, hated the other writer's avatar character, and was at odds with said avatar's boss (and the boss's rival - it was weird and complicated).

Which brings us back to Lady Zaharra. I haven't decided yet what she is, beyond that she is or was human. I'm playing around with the idea that she gave up a great deal of her humanity in the course of acquiring knowledge and power. She is at least a couple of thousand years old, if not much, much older, and most likely can't be harmed by mundane weapons, not even nukes. Maybe.

Motivation-wise, I've basically adopted the three way struggle from fan-fic times: she's working against two other entities who either believe they are, or who want to be, gods, and she is determined to stop them.

The battleground is the past (which is dead and cannot be altered, only observed); the future (ever-changing, ephemeral, and also unalterable, but in a totally different way*); and the present, which is a wave front advancing through space-time, and the only part that is, for most purposes, real. There are multiple parallel/alternate timelines, but not as many as most people might think: for most of the history of the universe there was only one timeline, and the creation of divergent ones involves something bordering on cataclysmic. (I haven't figured out exactly how that works yet.)

Two final details: 1) Timelines sometimes end. Whatever event causes the splitting of a timeline can sometime seperate the present from the past. The past is remembered, but it can't be reached from after the point of diversion. 2) Timelines sometimes merge, which is usually catastrophic at best, and can also seperate the past from the present, when it doesn't end one or both (or more, or all) of the converging timelines.

The above is why Lady Zaharra often tells people that their life or death crises are of no concern to her.

*The future can't be changed because every future is a mere possibility. All but a handful simply vanish, as if they had never existed, when the present reaches that point.

This is my new issue, please review.

It looks good, I'd check it once more for spelling errors or sentence structure (not saying there is something wrong, there just might be)

Leonism wrote:Imperial Foreign Ministry, Leestcheck, capital of the Imperium
Foreign Minister Vizekonsul Malte Lechner was sitting at the large meeting table in his office, together with his vice-foreign minister, Prokonsul II. Klasse Jennifer Adler. It was rare that the two of them had time to discuss policy together in person, but now was one of those times.

The ambassador from Fluffiness had sent Adler a proposal for a treaty on cooperation. Intelligence sharing regarding NLO activities was something both parties could agree on. The Fluffinessian side did not agree to prisoner exchanges though. "We will have to drop this matter", Lechner said. "It is purely hypothetical at this point anyway. Maybe Leo should consider ruling out prisoner exchanges with Loftegen 2 though, The Dark Witch in Altenburg seems to scare other nations in this regard." Adler nodded.

Lechner continued:
"We stand to gain something for our economy when it comes to the Book Publishing industry and Tourism through this treaty. I don't know how many tourists from Fluffiness will want to visit our country, but every single one is more than before. The backwater parts of South Frisia could use them especially, as they are falling behind Blaumeisehaven economically. But they have nice beaches. Does Fluffiness have nice beaches? I don't know. We simply need more intelligence about that country. Tell our newly appointed ambassador, Untergeneral Silke Kahrs, to travel the country. And send her more staff, the diplomatic service has plenty of bored new recruits. Remind them to leave their guns here, the people of Fluffiness don't allow open carry of guns. We will request that they allow us to station a company of Imperial Guard at the embassy compound, however."

"Ja, Vizekonsul. I will inform Diana Taeto that we agree with their draft text by and large. Ultimately the Reichstag will have to ratify the agreement", Adler noted. "I also don't think they will disagree with armed guards when those will remain strictly on the embassy grounds themselves."

"Alright then. Now let's focus on the NLO rebellion by Vizekonsul Schulte. We need to assure our foreign partners that we're not in a civil war, that the NLO has not taken over our armed forces and that we're very much in control. The Raumwaffe is loyal to the Imperium, only a handful of soldiers have chosen their loyalty to Schulte over their loyalty to the Imperium as a whole..."

Toroi Denkya frowned. He had received a new mail from Diana Taeto. It had to be good news. Hopefully it was. It seemed that Leonism officials agreed with the current terms. All they needed was the approval of their assembly, the Reichstag. They also wanted to have a company of their soldiers stationed at their embassy. Toroi would notify the Head of Military of this, but this was absolutely okay. After all, the embassy counted as a Foreign Territory With Diplomatic Status, so the rules of Leonism applied there. He would tell Diana to remind the diplomats that there were sometimes violent riots in Turnal. It was very unlikely that they would attack the embassy, but if it happened, the police would defend it first with non-lethal weapons. It would be troublesome if Leonism soldiers hurt or killed someone. It also seemed that Leonism lacked information about Fluffiness. It could be useful to set up a commission to write a bit about the culture, geography and history of Fluffiness.

But Toroi had concerning matters to tell Diana too. Early reports showed that there had been explosions, nuclear explosions, in Loftegen. The electro-magnetic impulsions had caused some electrical isssues in the east of Fluffiness. But worse, this meant that war was not so far. Toroi had planned to try tighten Fluffiness links with Loftegen, but this would have to be postponed. He had conducted a meeting with Rachel Fergus, they had decided to move troops to the Loftegen border. About two-thirds of the armed force would get there. Yet, they had no illusion, they would be crushed in the event of an invasion. So they had begun to implement insurgency tactics, in which Fluffiness wasn't so bad. But they needed more troops and more equipements. Almost everything in Fluffiness arsenal was obsolete (10 MiG-15 are still in use). Fluffiness couldn't resist an invasion by itself.

Diana received the message from Toroi. She immediately contacted the Prokonsul II. Klasse, teling her she would wait for the Reichstag ratification, and that there was no problem with Leonism soldiers in the embassy, as long a they don't start shooting people at random. She finished her message, asking if there was any trouble lately in Loftegen, as reports indicated nuclear strikes. She wished Leonism to be safe, especially Imperator Konsul Leo I.

Public Press Release to all nations of Lazarus
From the Außenministerium (foreign ministry) of the Imperium of Leonism.

Dear allies, friends and neighbours,
We regret to inform you that a rogue senior officer, until now the supreme commander of our space forces branch of the Imperial Armed Forces, has stolen an experimental military starship and is currently attacking Loftegen 2 as dictated by the New Light Order (NLO), an extremist branch of the Order of the Light, that was responsible for several terrorist attacks in Loftegen 2, Leonism, Sinyal and possibly Fluffiness in the recent weeks.

Abusing his position of power, he has convinced a small part of the forces formerly under his command to join him in his misled crusade.

Loyal Imperial forces are currently fighting alongside the armed forces of Loftegen 2 to thwart the attacks.

We are hereby reassuring all of Lazarus that there is no civil war in the Imperium and that the elected government under Imperator Konsul Leo I. retains full control. The Imperial Armed Forces have a peacetime strength of 70 million active duty personnel, of which 5 million are part of the Raumwaffe. Out of these, only a few hundred have taken the sides of the traitor.

We assure you that we are doing our utmost to arrest the NLO terrorists and contain any threat they pose.

Should you come under attack by what appears to be Imperial forces, please contact the Außenministerium immediately. The Imperium of Leonism does consider itself to be at peace with all other nations at the moment and will not attack unless in self-defense. Thus any aggressive acts by Imperial forces are most likely the work of rebellious traitors, which we will hunt down until they are all arrested and brought to justice, or killed if they resist arrest.

Thank you for your time and feel free to ask any questions.

Snudgskooge's palace

Snoodum, formerly known as Galgaria was formally founded in 47 AFD (After Founder's Death). This sparked the long and bloody history of Galgaria, renamed after the current leader, God-Emperor Snudgeskooge. Many view the country as a hostile, corrupt cesspit of oppression and squalor. This of course is blasphemy!

Snoodum has prospered with every citizen living underground in mega-cities. Some may view the state's measures of control as excessive though this is purely so it can run and continue to be finely tuned to the nth degree so that life runs smoothly. The military control the surface cities, preserved, and in some places, rebuilt to display Snoodum's historic roots. Military installations dot the country and only those given special permits are allowed to the surface.

Under Jado's benevolent rule, the populace enjoys a diversified set of liberties, accredited to the state's leniency and progressive approach. The U.S.S. is situated in a very interconnected segment of Lazarus, consequently resulting in a heavy regional interdependency, ranging from diplomacy to trade.

For trading cards, is there a way to junk certain types of cards e.g. common cards en masse?

Thanks, I don't want to break my fingers junking 100's of common cards

I don't think it's possible currently. It's unfortunate, but I feel like the average price for common cards is rising, so junking these may be less useful.
