Middle Earth Regional Message Board
After sitting in this region for a few years, I notice that there is no founder nation... That means it is a game created region (GCR) like the feeder and sinker regions and the GCR warzones?
Would Middle Earth cease if there are no nations residing here during an update?
This region has been created in antiquity, right with the other regions of the game that were created in the first 6 months since the game launched.
This is somewhat natural, considering that at that time the Lord of the Rings movies just came out and many were hyped.
During that time there was no concept of "founder"; later on, it was offered by the game administrators, and many such ancient regions took advantage of the offer and installed a founder. However, there have been some regions that wanted to preserve that historic status and remained founderless; Middle Earth is one of that select few.
To directly answer your question, Grrorg the Orc, Middle Earth is NOT a game-created region, it was created by a player around the time when the game first launched and there was no concept of Founder (it was added around one year later, I believe).
Obviously, any region is to cease to exist at update intervals (each 12 hours roughly) if there are no nations residing in it; although that does raise an interesting question - would also game created regions cease to exist? Hard to check, since most of those are highly populated and most likely never going to be devoid of nations.
Or as i would put it.. Eldest, that's what we are...Middle Earth remembers the first raindrop and the first acorn...we knew the dark under the stars when it was fearless before the Dark Lord came from Outside..
Tatarica, thank you. After reading your answer I realize that I have heard that (maybe even asked that myself) before.
Before I came to ask this question here yesterday, I was told that GCR won't cease. (I was also wondering). It is programmed like that. There are game created 'warzones' that are much less populated. Even those are permanently integrated and will not disappear even if abandoned.
And corrupted us poor little pretty elves. :X
Oops, I have clicked on a recruitment telegram and accidentally moved out of our region. Should be careful of any clicky buttons in telegrams, NationStates does not offer a "Are you sure you want to do this?" prompt.
I do remember reading in the books that Morgoth will, at one point in time, escape from the Void.
I just didn't think that it would happen because of NationStates :p
