Yeah I agree that they are forced, and if it is Gandalf then it will be even more forced. They essentially feel like their only purpose is to shout "hey remember the lord of the rings", and Gandalf would just make that worse. But I don't think it is Gandalf because meteor man gives off evil guy vibes. I've heard the theory on the webs that he is the balrog that was teased in one of the trailers, which would bug me less than Gandalf or Sauron, because it would just be silly, but it would continue the forced references to lotr.

I assume that the dagger is some sort of morgul blade, but I'm not sure why it has the map-of-mordor-mark on it if it was already in mordor. With that in mind, why would Sauron put the mark on Finrod's corpse?

I don't know, maybe it was a sign for the orcs to remind them of the plan to flee to Mordor, but the elves found his body before the orcs got rid of him; I don't know?

I don't have access to the show, so I've not watched yet (though I'll probably hoist the black flag at some point and commandeer a copy). But I'm quite interested in what folks think of it, and don't mind spoilers at all, so I'm happy to hear from everyone!

I haven't seen any of the show, but I did just finish reading The Silmarillion for the first time!

The Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride again!

I've heard it's a good book; I haven't read it myself, but I practically know most of the history of Middle Earth, such as the downfall of Numenor and the creation of the world by Eru.

I'd definitely recommend you give it a try sometime. It's got a ton of amazing moments throughout the book, even if you already know the overarching story

Tatarica hey can you start boosting for Horsemen of the Apocalypse?

Also maybe re-add myself and the old gang back as regional officers.

Hope everyone enjoys the event!

Hello again Middle Earth! Hopefully you all had fun with N-Day. Wasn't a surprise that the Horsemen won, but it thankfully wasn't a steamroll like last year.

XKI Game-Side

This month our favorite Regional Pollster, Jabberwocky, brought us a fantastic poll; it asked Islanders if they like pineapples on pizza!

In the poll, there were 113 voters, of which 52 voted that putting pineapples on pizza was a horrid idea, 36 voted that they dont really mind either way, and 10 voted that pineapples on their pizza was a must!

Meet The Nation

This month, BCN senator Gonggong interviewed Harjanika!.

Gong: How did you join NS and why pick XKI as a region?

Harjanika: I was bored one day and I thought that it would be interesting if I made my own nation in a game (I was looking for a 1 day thing but NS was way better). As for XKI, I joined because of TITO (I initially thought that nations could get invaded, however I am glad that I joined XKI nethertheless).

Gong: Ooo, yeee! I'm also glad that you ended up staying in XKI! The second question is: What is your favorite thing about XKI?

Harjanika: I would say ATA. When I look at other regions there's nothing quite like it. Also, the community is very nice and I have met some amazing friends here (including you)

Gong: Yeee! We're lucky to have you in Tito and ATA too! That reminds me that I should get more active on ATA, its been a while since I've done anything there! The third question is: Do you have any future ambitions to work in the government of XKI?

Harjanika: I did try to run for a senator once but I haven't been successful yet and I am not sure if I have what it takes about being the delegate however I am currently and ambassador to the Union of Democratic States! So at the moment I am quite happy

Gong: Oo, yee! I've tried to do something like that in ATA before, I can't remember if it ended up working or not! Oo, I hope one day you could become delegate! The last question is an easy one: What's your favorite color?

Harjanika: Awww! Thank you! However I imagine that it is really tough being Delegate. About the last question: Magenta! It's so nice and peaceful and vibrant at the same time! Now I fancy seeing a Pinky Magenta Sunset

Gong: Yeee! Thank you for answering the questions!

Hope to see you all next month, your XKI Update Staff is signing off!

Gonggong and Markanite
