Is it all alcohol or just drinking alcohol?

Must be drinking alcohol.

How on God’s green Enkon can alcohol be banned in Nedea?! Do you know that nearly half of all Athretvarian Mama Juice has alcohol in it? Cramping my exports, man.

It's been awhile,but a new poll battle is here! there can be only one!

Just classify alcohol as a sports drink or a way to help "cure" shyness. I'm sure with the right people looking the other way we can help shy Nedens to loosen up if they drink the "cure" as directed.

Texasiva was a subject of the Gresk Empire, we contributed the military personnel and their equipment, our lands would reach east all the way to coast and North to the Rivers and mountains. Our fertile lands would maintain a population of 42 billion.

Over time a rivalry between the 3 largest families, De la Cruz, Borquez, & Franco would form, the largest being De la Cruz who controlled vast lands in the East the families would each have their paramilitaries fight . However with this came ambition which went against the crown. As the millennium came around there came revolution across the Gresk Empire, and oporuntiy presented itself for the De la Cruz family who declared independence consisting of 1/2 of Texasiva landmass and population this conflict would last 36 years. Allowing only a few million volunteers to be sent to help Gresk.

The Cruz family would push northwest, squishing the Borquez family, the battle of Zaragazi would be the 1st large battle between Borquez and Cruz forces resulting in the destruction of 86% of the city and the death of 7 million military personnel. Borquez forces would start using backhand blow tactics, they worked for the first 7 months but Cruz generals would soon learn and prevent their forces from stretching to thin. Cruz forces would continue it's vast offensive reaching the outskirts of Atlanta. However the Borquez and Franco family seeing defeat around the corner team up and would prepare the defense of Atlanta with 22 million men, 142,000 artillery pieces, 210,000 Tanks and over 80,000 aircraft. Atlanta being the capital & the 2nd largest living center in Texasiva Would make it crucial for the war.
The battle itself would last 2 years starting with Cruz forces surrounding the city. Building to building, entire sectors reduced to ruble and flattened. However coalition forces (Franco and Borquez) would finally be able to help the besieged and counter attack Cruz forces surrounding over 64 million forces. The battle would cost a total of 4.7 billion lives but would mark the turn of the war.
Coalition generals would start operation Jupiter which would be a massive frontal counter attack with plans of reaching coordinates 52.16 within 6 years, they knew Cruz still had hundreds of millions and the war was far from over. As the 26th year of the war came around both sides ditch their "rules" of war and honor. This would result in hundreds of massacres committed by both sides, civilian deaths would sky rocket over 23 billion. Slow but sluggish fighting would occur for another 7 years until coalition forces finally reached the Cruz capital which the final and largest battle of the war, Carlonia would be unrecognizable after the 3 year siege which would cost the lives of 7 billion people, most of which who were 13 year old soldiers. Texasivas families were scraping the barrel and accepting volunteers ranging from 12-80 year olds. Over a hundred million men would take part in the attack, and even more in the defense as a orgy of rape, murder, and unspeakable acts would take place during and after. The war destroyed any morals within the population and created a generation of beasts along with the death of 18/19 of the population probably due to the fact most of them were given a gun and had to fight. We'd have to abandon most of the lands east due to the war.

Most of the Cruz family would be held accountable and executed. Others would be able to escape to unknown areas around delta.

Recovering from the Civil war

Redid my History to be a bit more entertaining in my eyes, maybe add future rp. Anything that should be modified or added in. Lore that mixes probably.

I also don't know the exact timeline of just life in general on delta so it could be modified quite a bit.

It was too early in the morning, and Celia hadn’t yet finished her first cup of coffee. She looked the man over and then asked him his name again.

“Somta. Dr. Lt. Kirel Somta. I’m a professor of Ancient Solterran and Doec Comparitive Studies at the University of Mitera. I’m joining ...”

“Joining Dr. Major “Pain in My Ass” Jagk Tirogo, Director of the Ars Scientia University Tribal Linguist Research Project and the rest of his team in Diskothek to study the origins of the Rei’Tro and other Northsavage languages.” Celia interrupted him, her face carrying a disingenuous but professional smile.

“Why’d ask if you already knew?” Somta said.

Celia heard a tone of annoyance in his voice. She hoped he hadn’t finished his coffee either. They boarded the small craft sitting alone on the tarmac. She gave the professor a helmet. “Here, put this on.”

Somta gazed at the dark spheroid, “What’s this for? Isn’t this thing sound-shielded?” He waved the helmet around, accidentally hitting a touch-control panel on the bulkhead.

Suddenly the lights and sound-shielding failed. The roar of the craft’s engines filled the cabin.

Celia started shouting, “It’s for emergencies! And this ‘thing’ is a upgraded AthTec Hubaci AG-1000(u) Skyhammer with a state-of-the-art AI-core, advanced avionics, communications suite, and sensor arrays, a top-of-the-line quantum-remote propulsion system, and kick-ass dual 330 terawatt air-plasma canons! Not to mention me and Latch,” she pointed to the co-pilot who was mumbling something into his helmet and stroking the Skyhammer’s flight controls. Suddenly the engines failed and the whole craft went silent.

“This ‘thing!’ as you so casually... No! So ungraciously called it” Celia continued, shouting louder at the professor, “will keep your ass and ours safe as it flys us across thousands of klicks of stormwrecked ocean teeming with giant piranhawhales, sweltering jungles crawling with blood-thirsty Hrakni bug-monsters and flesh-eating thornvine mushrooms, and a shallow sea of sharkeel-infested swamps. And then, then there are the savages...”

“OK! OK. I’m sorry for insulting you and Latch.” Somta waved to the co-pilot who waved back.

“And Bitty.” Celia said pulling her helmet on.

“And Bitty?”

“The Skyhammer!” Latch shouted from the cockpit.

“Bitty,” Celia’s voiced crackled from her helmet as she stroked the ‘injured’ touch-control on the Skyhammer’s port bulkhead.

“Sorry, Bitty.” Somta said. Celia and Latch both motioned for Somta to say it louder. “Sorry, Bitty!” he shouted. Suddenly the lights flickered back on and the engines roared back to life.

Celia motioned for Somta to put the helmet on. A tiny version of her voice pierced his ear as soon as the helmet clicked into placed, “Don’t insult Bitty!”

“Sorry, Bitty,” Somta whispered again. He took a seat behind Latch, buckled in, and watched as the two pilots finished prepping the Skyhammer for their flight to Diskothek. It was best they believed the reason he’d already given for needing their services. He hadn’t thought up another alternative to the truth.

Most of the trip was uneventful. They had setoff from Exerevno just after dawn and headed North over the sea and then over the deep jungle of the northern Savagelands. Somta had dozed off at some point and woke to a violent shake and Latch’s voice frantically shouting into his helmet, “Mayday! Mayday! Skyhammer ENO-393 requesting immediate assistance! We’ve been struck by anti-air artillery. Coordinates 27.14—”

Bitty was hit by another violent barage of AA fire. Somta felt a rush of warm humid air against the side of his leg. He looked down to see a baseball-sized hole in the craft’s deck next to his foot. Smoke started to fill the cabin. “Athla! What is happening?!”

“Hold on!” Celia shouted, “We’re going down!”

My two favorite parts of your history are “The Cruz family would push northwest, squishing the Borquez family,” and “The war destroyed any morals within the population and created a generation of beasts along with the death of 18/19 of the population...” What an ingeniously “random” fraction. lol. Very good.

I nearly peed my pants. An option from a current issue facing Athretvari (a pregnant, "former" Violetist extremist, who claims to have been a noncombatant, wants back into Athretvari to have her baby and live with her family) —

"“Take her out,” whispers your Minister for Alternative Solutions. “And I don’t mean to a nice restaurant. Violetist extremists have caused so many deaths, so why waste this opportunity for justice? I don’t believe she was noncombatant for a second. These Violetist animals wouldn’t show any mercy to us, so we shouldn’t show any to them. She and her larva deserve to die — this is war!”

I'm quite jealous

Quick question for anyone...

What is the age of majority in your nation? What does that entail? Is there a reason it's X age and not Y age?

Nedea wrote:Quick question for anyone...

18 for my nation. You can do anything legal within my country.(alcohol, cigarettes and the like) the reason being is that your eligible to being drafted. It's 18 because usually you graduate from high School around that time. I'd argue in my nation a person can claim majority earlier (16 or 17) if they graduate high school early and can show understanding of the outcome of majority.

Similar to 46566, "age of majority" is a bit fluid in Athretvari and defined not so much by age as by "rank." Minimum rank equivalent to an age of majority ("you have all your basic rights") is a K8, which usually occurs between 17 and 20 years of age, depending on individual. Every citizen of Athretvari is in this National Corps and the system is used as a way to denote actual rank in the Corps, and as a type of social ranking/meritocratic system to basically announce, and recognize service to the nation. Certain rights, specifically powers to vote on particular issues and nominate officials are held by those with the highest rank. Movement through the ranks from K0 up to about K15 is highly technical and structured, based on time served and examination. Movement above K15 is nearly always based on politics.

Thanks! It's been a while, nice to have some downside.

Really starting to smell around here. Athretvari, Do you think you can scrap some of those *stormwrecked ocean teeming with giant piranhawhales, sweltering jungles crawling with blood-thirsty Hrakni bug-monsters and flesh-eating thornvine mushrooms, and a shallow sea of sharkeel-infested swamps* off of your boot when you step in please? Also, are savages a protected species or are we going to find out??

I’m working on this... first draft accidentally got a bit too ‘epic’ as I was writing it, and I figured out as I writing that it’s missing a whole another epic back story. I hope it’s worth the wait guys. lol, sorry for the gear up but no release, I mean climax... You know what I mean. :)

I can now colonize 4 earth sized planets with 7 billion people apiece.
