I'm beginning to like the quiet life of just answering issues. Well, here more than my other puppets in more active regions.

Garchyland and Toonela

Hello friends

I am pleased to announce, Hell has a Governor and the gates are OPEN, after nearly a decade behind a password.

Can check out our special edition of Hell's Bells here!


Ask not for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee.

The Gates of Hell are Open
Article by, The Stalker

After over 8 and half years behind a password, Hell has finally reopened their gates. Thanks to the creation of the new frontier/governor system put into place, Hell has just appointed long time delegate and King of Hell The Stalker as governor. Freeing Hell from all prior security concerns and allowing the permanent removal of the password that had kept Hell safe for almost a decade. Special thanks to Sedgistan for pioneering this change that will allow a new life to so many historic regions.

Underworld has already begun merging into Hell. And lost souls from all over NS have begun to pour in.

In conjunction with momentous event, please join me in congratulating Premedite, Draconic Aiur, and Morbus as they all rise to the rank of Hell Elder. Long time residents of Hell and some of the very last to complete the trials to join Hell, it is an honor to have them join the rank eldership.

As the newly appointed governor, I’d like to take a moment to thank my fellow elders for helping us get here. I thank Cynical Alcoholics, the most senior Hell Elder since July 2003 and only other Hellion left who was once delegate of Hell and his long service to the region. I thank Donkervader, one of the first nations I recruited to join Hell upon becoming delegate almost 9 years ago. I thank Sathan, long time Hell Elder since December 2004. I thank Boolaroo long time Hell Elder since March 2004. I thank Yodoshi aka Daisy Johnson for her leadership of Underworld and devotion to the Hellion community. I thank Kyraina long time friend and Prince of Hell. I thank Altmoras as leader of the Horsemen, and all the advise and help with security he has given over the years.

I thank my former co-rulers, Freddland the Gatekeeper of Hell and Big jim p the Lord of Hell, for putting their trust in me all those years ago to lead Hell, it is my hope they some day return to see the newly freed Hell.

And a shout out to Gehenna Primus, Demonos, Mrev the Dead Goblin, and anyone I may have missed. It was a collective effort to get here, and it is because of their and all the Elders past and present dedication to Hell that reopening the gates became possible. It’s been too long, and we’re glad to be back.

We hope you've enjoyed our special edition of Hell's Bells. Nations interested in contributing to future issues should contact The Stalker for details.

Dropping by to plug 2024 Presidential Election, a 4-way, state-by-state competition between Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, and Greens. Currently deciding the electoral votes of West Virginia.

I commend NationStates for coming out with the “Governor” feature.

However, if this was intended to help regions that have been affected by raiding for decades (like us), this does not help in any way - this only helps new regions who may appoint a “successor” in the event the founder (or governor) CTE’s. Unfortunately, this change does nothing for A Liberal Haven, therefore we will continue to be passworded (and will likely die out this way), even as this new feature was unveiled to “prevent unguarded regions from dying out”. Disappointing.

Dear friends,

It is an honour and a pleasure for me to reach out to you as the new Prime Minister of LDA. I have just formed a government, determined to take action both domestically and on foreign policy issues. A key ambition of my term in office is that of closer cooperation and more advanced inter-regional integration with our allies and partners who would like it. Feel free to contact us for any particular reason. You can contact me directly for any matter, as well as the Minister of Foreign Affairs, The State of Hejaz, which some of you might already know quite well. Also, to all members of the region, please note that our RMB is open and that you can also express yourself there.

With my untmost consideration and my sincere desire to strengthen our partnership,

The Republic of France Europe
Prime Minister of Liberty Democratic Alliance

Hello, how are you?

Your situation is the same as ours was, a founder having CTEd. We switched to a frontier, waited the requisite 2 weeks, then switched to stronghold, waited another 2 weeks, and now we have a governor who has all the powers our founder used to have and 2 successors in the event they CTE aswell.

I'd just like to echo this. I used to be the WA Delegate for Forest (after Ransium stepped down in Aug. 2021), and then when our Founder, Errinundera, CTE'd in Mar. 2022, I became the Executive Delegate, like Garchyland is for A Liberal Haven. Garchyland could certainly initiate the changes. There would be a 14-day countdown to Frontier, and then a 14-day countdown to Governor, at which point Garchyland would become, in terms of gameplay mechanics, invincible. You can keep the password during the month-long transition process (we had a password for security purposes, too), and then once the Governor is installed, you can drop the password and open the region back up to the world.

Personally speaking, I would strongly recommend thinking about it. Otherwise, you've really got no choice but to slowly wither away behind the password or be overrun by raider nonsense. As Governor, you can take the Executive power away from the Delegate (which I did), so even if raiders took over the Delegacy, they can't actually do anything. And as Governor, you can eject/ban nations with no influence cost, so turning away invaders can be done in seconds with nothing lost except your time.

I'm happy to discuss this more with anyone by telegram, or you can pop over to Forest and ask about it on the RMB. From what I can tell, we're all very happy that we did it, even though that month-long wait became a little tedious because we're used to a gradual influx of newcomers.

You (Garchyland & citizens of ALH) can easily create a new life for A Liberal Haven, should you choose to do so. The update was made for situations like this, as far as I can tell. 😄🌱☀️

RIP Maineiacs, the last of the original nations other than myself. It has become a lonely time here in ALH.
