Regional Happenings


Ancient Lands Regional Message Board

Considering that this is a puppet storage region, we do get a few visitors probably due to the sheer population of the region. Welcome.

Alas, it appears that Democracy has CTE 18 days ago... requiescat in pace

Post by Capa Virieglia suppressed by a moderator.

Probably will not partake in this year's nuclear war game. Have a few other projects that require my time before the onset of winter.

Doug -

Thinking of making this region smaller by creating at least two more puppet storage regions.

Better than closing the six large puppet storage regions that we already have just to make this region's population larger than the Rejected Realms. By making this region 50 puppets smaller, we could create a new puppet storage region and have this region smaller than Lazarus. 100 puppets would bring us below Balder, just. If we added a third or even a fourth region, we could get our population below Osiris. Trying to go below The North Pacific would require a total rethink about this region's existence or purpose.

Which do you think. Bigger or smaller, or should we just stay the same. To go bigger would require the demise of six of our largest puppet storage regions to gain the population needed to get larger than the Rejected Realms, but only just. They could easily counter that by getting the dictators of the various Pacific regions to eject more of their largest nations to counter our move.

So you're proposing building another curio so we can stuff more crystal puppets into them? WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO GET THE MONEY TO PAY FOR ALL OF THAT?

*quiets down after realizing that shouting makes the puppets resonate with high-pitched dissonance*


Probably going to keep things as they are. Less maintenance by not doing anything too drastic.

Creating one or more puppet storage regions, and transferring the puppets from here, or transferring the puppets from other puppet storage regions just to bolster this region requires a fair amount of effort and coding. Adjusting our play list takes a bit of effort, especially all that coding on our end.

I like the puppet storage regions that we have now.

Trying to build this region up to make it larger than the Rejected Realms is pointless, as they can easily make that region larger than this one. I may create a few smaller puppet storage regions, but I am not too keen on taking any of these nations from this or any of the larger puppet storage regions that we now have.

We had changed the status of one of our regions, the Committee, which required that it be refounded with a new founder, and move the puppets to our cemetery region, Temple Hill. They have all been archived and are slowly being allowed to die off. These puppets are no longer on our play list, including the former founder. Not sure how many similar puppets are being sent to our cemetery region, but they will all be archived, and made certain that the nations are all in excess of 2 billion population each.

This region will not be changed, at this time.

You are welcome to use my cemetery regions as well - The Graveyard and/or Temple of Tombs.

I am using Temple Hill so that the founder of that region can record the nations that will die in it's dossier. Keep track of those nations so in the future if I need to revive them, I can do so without much trouble. Thanks for your offer. Temple of Tombs, I like that name. Wonder how many cemetery themed regions there really are in this game, and who all controls those regions. I know that I have a few.

I probably should have posted that with this nation.
