Also, I'm not responsible for anything you google.
Or the consequences of said googling.
If you suddenly find yourself in cruel uncaring universe,
you haven't been paying enough attention to it before you got traumatised.
Edit: Okay, I actually got past the Chaosmaster this time, a few lucky rolls of 0s and 9s, sommerswerd with huntmastery (in this case with sword and broadsword), using a potion of Alether for the extra CS, and now I have 14 Endurance at the end of the fight.
That's what all the healy items you find earlier are for, I guess. (Captain Obvious)
It's a bit too soon I'm afraid. But, you can always go to the "suggest a poll thread" on the spiritus offsite forum to propose any dragon you wish for the next time a poll about dragons will happen. It's in the potato lounge.
Or you know, you can propose a poll with or without potential answers.
I would like to suggest a poll:
What should be done about Alekseandrea's nonsensical polls; polls that nake no sense; where the question is meaningless, and the potential answers make no logical reference to the "question"? - Where only the insane can choose an "answer", because you have to be mad to "understand" what the hell is going on.
Please submit potential answers in response to this post.
You want to return to the dark ages when Salaxalans did the poll?
Well, he didn't more than he did. That was the problem.
And Itrosomia seems to be hibernating.
There can only be one!
Howdy all from Forest, we are doing a thing!
Forestian Autumnal Writing Contest
There are two categories: Prose and Poetry. Applicants may enter one or both categories - although obviously not with the same piece of writing!
The prompt is:
It is up to the writer to interpret this however they wish.
Entering the Contest
Entries can be TG'd to any of the judges. Simply state whether it is an entry for Prose or Poetry.
Entries will open on Monday 22nd October and close on Thursday 22nd November. There will be a two week period set aside for judging, with the winners announced on Friday 7th December.
This contest is open to all Forestians and any nations residing in regions that Forest maintains an embassy with.
Entries will be judged on the following criteria: construction of the text, interesting interpretations of the prompt and finally engaging ideas.
Spelling, punctuation and grammar will not officially be judged; however it will be taken into account when looking at the other criteria. If your submission is particularly full of errors to the point it makes the text indecipherable or hard to follow, your submission will likely not score as highly and may be rejected.
As an aside, the kind of skills needed to succeed in this competition are rather similar to the skills needed to write good issues. If you find that you enjoy the submission process, consider checking out the Got Issues? forum!
NationStates, as a website, does have certain rules surrounding offensive material. From the Moderation sticky:
Offensive Material: As mentioned previously, we use the US movie rating "PG-13" standard. Mild swearing may be tolerated, mild sexuality may be hinted, but explicit or excessive versions of either or both will result in moderation intervention.
Bear in mind this would cover material sent via Telegrams too.
Creative writing basically, to a prompt. All our embassy regions are welcome to get stuck in!
Can it be truly said that I ever left? True, I don't pay as much attention to the NS universe as I used to, but I'm still here - This God (JZJ) just despairs when he gazes upon creation, and thus is tempted to leave it to enter Dark Ages, where the weaknesses of Free Will, and other gifts bestowed upon Humanity, are left to unravel, exposing both the follies of Man and the Creator - That Humanity has perhaps too much Freedom; the potential to both create and destroy anything and EVERYTHING, including the Creator...
Truly we endowed Man with too much power - The power to become both a God or Devil and to bring forth Heaven or Hell upon the mortal, material, visible Universe...
Bring on the Apocalypse, Armageddon,
and Judgement Day I say! - Let us wipe the slate clean; cleanse the Earth, and start anew!
Praise be to the Lord The Jedi-Zombi Jezus Christ!
