No, I’m just a disappointment.
Anti-Minudan forces in Bangalore had put continual pressure on the divisions of Minuda, but on this morning they awoke to an unusual sound. The sun wasn't even up, and something was out there.
Jets. Jet aircraft. Two jets with wide wings swept over the partisan camp, making wide arcs over it. No bombs. Perhaps it was a surveillance flight, they thought. If they had any air defenses at all they likely would've taken a shot at downing these mysterious aircraft. The two jets circled back together and shot west from where they came. Unusual, considering the only thing out there was open osea-
A hail of rockets rained down on the enemy camp. From across the jungle Ikean rocket artillery had opened up, using spyplane data to determine the exact location of enemy camp. The rockets did some damage, but the effects on the fortifications were limited. The true damage was the absolute pandemonium that followed. The partisan camp was awake and in panic by the surprise attack, and that's when they saw them: a line of fighters on the horizon. The Ikean E105's moved with lightning speed, and began to loose air to ground missiles. Each of the 10 jets had 6, plus their internal rocket pods and machine guns. The camp lit up with fire and explosions. Nearby buildings crumbled, and heavy partisan cannons collapsed or broke apart. Then, the army arrived.
Shock Troops aboard choppers appeared from behind the trees, moving swiftly towards the camp. The only things swifter were the rockets they launched. At the same time, the armored Ikean forces emerged from the jungle, and began making a drive to the camp. Some infantry followed, riding their trucks or even the tanks. Others stayed at the tree line, dropping their artillery barrels down and letting loose salvo after salvo upon the camp.
With no dedicated air defenses, the choppers reached the camp intact. Rockets cleared the way, and boots were on the ground. Fighting devolved quickly; shock troops began going door to door, clearing out partisans, while the tanks and infantry drove like a wall into the camp. The battle was fierce and bloody, but the surprise of the Ikean forces was supreme. Nobody had set up dedicated defenses on the outside, much less on the western border. The partisans were the besiegers, not the besieged. And then the next wave of jets rolled in. And then the next, and the next.
The partisan defense quickly attempted to rally, but airstrike after airstrike, artillery shell after artillery shell, and the mobility of Ikean shock troops over the camp broke the unified defense. As armored forces shredded the outer defenses, the fighting fell further into pocket battles. Partisan forces began to slip away whenever able, and those who stayed dealt a heavy toll to the Ikeans. Pockets broke, and men dropped. Partisan uniforms shredded by Ikea brand bullets, bombs, and armor.
It was afternoon. Henning looked upon the ruins. The city was smoldering, almost completely leveled. Ikean and partisan explosives had brought most buildings down to rubble. Ikean bodies littered the mess; door to door fighting was far from pretty, and airstrikes in this environment were lethal to everyone, not just partisans. Their commanders were talented, realized Henning. He had paid dearly for this victory. Yet even talent could only last so long against explosives. Save a few last holdouts, this part of the siege was broken. He dispatched a squadron to greet the Minudan forces he was here to relieve. Then, he turned to count his losses.
No fighters, but two smoldering helicopters, and at least a thousand Ikean men were strewn about, lifeless on the ground. Henning couldn't bother to count the partisan losses right now. There were still more Ikean bodies to find.
Swap any two members of the Executive Council out and go off of a variant of Fiji’s cabinet to serve the region. If you had to take out two Ministers sitting currently and switch them to eachother’s Ministries, which two would you pick?
So I first got the job after MJ had to step down at the end of Ghost's term. So I just filled out the last seven days and made sure the i's that weren't dotted and t's that weren't crossed got dotted and crossed.
Fiji asked me if I'd be interested in staying on, and I was hesitant at first. I didn't tell him that actually, but part of me wanted to refuse. I took the dive though, because I had a vision for the office I thought could work out well if done right.
I have one of each, but I'm a cat person.
The Notorious Mad Jack, Darcania, and McMasterdonia would be my biggest influences in helping me find my footing. MJ for helping me find my way in Eras RP, Darc for being an all-around great guy whose commitment to the region is second to none and who has always been a great person to talk to about nearly anything, and McM for bringing me into Culture and showing me the ropes of how the Ministry works. As well as being a great Admin who really gets the RP community.
I would tell them to find the story they want to tell. Many people think "national RP" is a type of RP, but it's not. It's merely a setting. Character work and narrative is as important in NS RP as it is anywhere else. I would say they need to figure out what the story of their nation is and what character or characters will be at the forefront of that.
I can't help you. All I can I say is don't pee in the parking garage.
I'm all for legalized weed but the rest I would say no :P
I think we get more engaged with the GP community in NS as a whole but other than that? TNP's strength is its ability to keep on keeping on.
That the culture and tradition that values democracy and mutual respect regardless of political ideals remains firmly entrenched.
I have tourette syndrome. It's something I've worked to overcome all my life.

I have no idea! Probably not as high as I think it is though.
Nah. Military gameplay has never been my cup of tea. That said the NPA is amazing!
If only he'd let me in :(
The North Pacific is stable.
Oh good G-d that would be a nightmare XD
