Also that red button below the WFE of regions...
I had several unwanted sad fat finger movements.
I wonder if they don't wanna change that because it would interfere with the raider-defender-game? For issues there is this confirm-first button.
I like the fact that you can simply opt out when it comes to the total global (and beyond) atomic war.
Hi! I'm a recreational update surfer, and I'm here as this is a particularly early updating region!
I had no idea that our region is among the first part among those in the update list, but interesting thing to know.
If you're planning to do your surfing for the R&D aspect of the game, know that we're not involved in that. Generally, we're a tolkienite community and if you share any similarities with that then you're more than welcome to check us out! I say 'generally' because we're not just tolkienites and don't shy away from other discussions.
As for myself, the obvious answer would be Galadriel. Sure, my perception can be skewed, but what's not to like in a lady elf that has beauty, knowledge, and power - and wields the ring Nenya ? (totally not biased because of Lady Galadriel's name)
Arwen would be a close second, but just because I am just a weak mortal man and we are to assume the answer has to revolve around staying at home with them during a pandemic.
If I were to select a 3rd pick not based on looks, I'd go with Bilbo. He has his own fair share of stories to pass the time if I am interested to hear, and if I'm not I know that he'll be busy writing his memoirs. And, obviously, no one will suffer from hunger.
Z-Day 2020 Draws Nigh!
Our scouts have returned with dire news: The Dread Necromancer marches toward our fair lands, and brings with them a foul army of the walking dead. Their best estimates are that this menace will arrive in two weeks.
Thus all nations of Middle Earth should pay heed - a day reckoning fast approaches - a time that some call "Z-Day". It will be a dark day - a day that dead will shuffle into our forests and towns, a day in which they shall claw and gnash our peoples, a day in which all we hold dear on this good earth will hang in the balance. However, if the nations of Middle Earth band together, and stand against this evil tide with a resolve of iron, this shall not be our last day. Thus, we urge all of our peoples to prepare themselves to stand ready when this horde of Barrow-Wights arrives on October 31st.
What you can do now:
Make a note on your calendar for Oct 31-Nov 1. The assault typically lasts between a day and 36 hours - on Halloween day. Resolve to spend as much of that time as you can helping to defend Middle Earth. Even if the time you spend is short, every little bit helps our region. Last year Middle Earth did very well, ranking highly amoung the regions of the world in terms of the number of survivors.
What you can do at the very start of Z-Day:
Log in, and set your nation to begin researching a cure. This will take some time - probably an hour or two. As time goes on, your "cure missiles" will become more potent.
What you can do the rest of Z-Day:
At any time you have a spare moment, log into your nation and launch some cure missiles at your neighbors in Middle Earth. A cure missile converts a small percentage of zombies back into normal living people, so its most effective to target those nations with the greatest absolute total number of zombies. Any nation that launches at least one cure missile and does not intentionally attack others with undead hordes will get a special, limited edition "Badge of the Barrow-Wight Slayer of 2020".
What you should not do on Z-Day:
Intentionally attacking other Middle Earth nations with undead hordes ruins other peoples' hard work. So, we ask if you want to embrace and aid the Barrow-Wights, please be considerate of your neighbors and do it from a different region, and then return to Middle Earth after Z-Day is complete.
Thank you for your support, and I look forward to fighting shoulder-to-shoulder with all of you on Z-Day 2020 !
I wonder how all of our residing balrogs and other dark creatures are going to behave during this Z-Day event!
The Middle Earth Roleplay that we started back in June has just finished.
Thank you everyone for participating in the Middle Earth Roleplay, or at least checking it from time to time.
Hope to see more of you in a future iteration of the RP. If there's interest at a later time I might be persuaded to host it again. Or, you know, I am open to you players getting involved in a roleplay of your own! It can also be here on the RMB, I might consider participating in in-lore stuff.
Thank you for taking the time to host the roleplay. It was immensely enjoyable and a great entry into roleplaying for me.
Also, I may never be able to fully enjoy a game of Risk, again, without getting the opportunity to write out lengthy scenes for every move!
Glad you managed to get the game going and to complete it. Sorry Echoriath could not participate (considering letting Echoriath rest and replacing him here - we are both puppets of Red Star of the West).
