BREAKING: Three people arrested as a plot to shoot the Empress was foiled. A 42 year old woman, 19 year old male, and a 430 year old Martian were taken into custody for a trial for attempted assault of a World Leader. More later.
Breaking News: A tsunami warning has been triggered by a 7.9 magnitude earthquake that hit Montbi Island just West of Northwestern Franconia State. Get to higher ground immediately.
Related News: An earthquake has struck Northwestern Franconia State at a 5.9 on the Richter Scale. Bismuto City, Peridotsville, and Frenchton all have minor damage. We'll post updated info later.
Breaking News Update: A large tidal wave has been spotted off the coast of Northwestern Franconia State and is hurtling toward the shores of Gainesville, Chocka, Minilla, and Deansworth County. Officials say to evacuate immediately.
Xemptoworth's Message: Xemptoworth: Nine million people are effected after this horrible disaster. New levees and pipelines were being built at the time of the earthquake and now 3,000 workers are trapped. EEA is working to rescue these workers and are depleting resource funds as they go. More than 14,000 helicopters were deployed from around the Empire to save the workers. So far, only 2 have been saved. 90 of them died. Franconian officials will issue a National Emergency to help these workers, thus using our 4.8 Trillion UCB Credits that have been saved up. 2419 looks like to be a disastrous year so far and it is only 7 days in.
As far as I'm concerned, a region is defined by its rmb activity. No rmb activity? Boring region, moving out. The way I see it is as follow: I'm already registered on NS, why do I also have to register on an external forum/chat service to get the full NS experience? For I, this makes no sense.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Not speaking for anybody but myself. I'm not going to argue or convince people to see it my way, because I know I have a view shared by no one else and IDC.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
It's just that our region does our RP off on our own forum so that we can more neatly keep track of things. It's a preference we have as the RMB get's messy. If you base activity purely off an RMB then you might be overlooking activity elsewhere that a region has, like our discord...
Uuuhhh... is this the start of a cold war? Should I butt out...?
Yes and as I said earlier, it's on purpose, based on my own preferences. For me, activity out of the game area doesn't count as activity in game and I will always keep out of external sites. I don't do it on other online games and it's not this game which will make me change my mind.
Btw, before our conversation, I did check out your discord group since I didn't have to register to join it and it wasn't really good, kind of the same mess actually, but with more spam. I felt loss when I got on it.
I guess you'd have to join the conversation and introduce yourself there to know what's going on. As for regarding what is and isn't activity, I'm telling you that while you have your opinion and you are welcome to it, that this region definitely views activity as being on the Forum and on the Discord as well as the RMB. Not just here on the RMB.
At that same point I must say that I appreciate and enjoy reading Franconia Empire's posts here.
Developing Story: After a swift, but brutal attack at the Empress in his campaign, Jim Fontain said something in Franconian that is a bit jarring...
Fontain: The Empire will live a long, prosperous life and won't back down for anything. Under my rule, biddi fon shoh will bee the new here. Ladies and gentlemen, it is the dawn of a new era.
If you don't know what that means, we will break it down for you. "Biddi" is a group. "Fon" is damage done, or the color white. "Shoh" is only a certain group of people that can prevail. Now it is up to you to decide on whether or not it is jarring to the public.
LIVE! Breaking: We take you live to Northwestern University as it and millions of other homes and businesses are in the dark from a massive 7.1 quake. The quake was epicentered in Xyloville, 8 miles south of Desperado Springs. The quake had millions of UCB Credits in damage and even cancelled the Cauliflower Bowl in Northwestern Franconia Empire State. We can already tell you that over 300 million people are affected by the quake and services are being taken seriously as people are told to shut off electricity, gas, and water. FEG&E says that they are only limited to 90 minutes until the full Northwesterb grid fails. Authorities are using force to move people into safe areas. 900 people were sent from the Guard to help take people to safer locations. This is a horrible incident and this is only the beginning of what's to come.
2420 Election Update: Fontain is now under fire as his "biddi fon shoh" comments were reviewed by election's officials. Officials said that they are focused on disqualifying the candidate for the racist remarks.
Amazonia has officially made a statement on whether or not she is fit to be Empress. She said "I am just as fit to be Empress as Xemptoworth, even more so."
BREAKING!: May 2420 is closer than you think. The Empire is looking at doing early polling in some sections of the nation. This will either be good or horrible in 2420, but the election will be fair. If enough early voters turn out in January of next year, it my stay for the 2422 midterms, and the 2424 Leader Selection.
So what do I gotta do to get started
You can head over to our map thread: http://selene.online/forum/showthread.php?tid=449
Murder, murder, murder. That is what people are chanting as the most notorious child abuser, Daniel Gillinsberg, was caught en route to his next victim. Police saw him at a local San Ferdinand park close to San Juarez. The Franconian Board of Child Protection got a tip that he was there and sent the local police. We have audio of that call:
BCP: This is the Board of Child Protection. Do you have an emergency or tip?
Concerned Mother: Tip. There is a man who just went up to my daughter asking if I hit her. Like a good child, she did not speak to him. The man who came up to my daughter and then proceeds to sit next to her on the swing.... He is there now. I'm just watching closely to see if she is going to be hurt....
BCP: Okay. Just stay there. We'll contact the police department for you.
Period of silence...
San Ferdinand Police: SFPolice, reason why you're calling?
BCP: This is the Board of Child Protection, I have a concerned mother on the line saying that her daughter was approached by a strange man asking if she is being abused.
SFPolice: Did the girl speak to the man?
BCP: No she did not. She is watching the man and has been monitoring the situation for some time. Her daughter is with her.
SFPolice: Okay. We'll have someone out there and catch the gentleman.
After that call, the man was found to be flicking the girl endlessly in the nose. The man took the girl from the mother and started to run. The mother, like any, chased after the man and tazed him. Her daughter was lucky enough to fly into a bush to break her fall. The mother then put the man under civilian arrest, restraining him until police arrived. Daniel Gillinsberg said he was trying to teach the girl a lesson. The lesson was "Never Be a Child Abuser in a Busy Park"
