Hey Ner, just wondering; that unclaimed "empty quarter" in northern Chile that you, Sov, Arg, and Cal border--think I could relocate there?
With all the talk of map placement, I've started taking an interest in carving out a place on the map again. Tec's been gone for a couple months and I have a thing for the Atacama's alien landscape. Never cared for my old spot in Venezuela, to be honest, which inhibited my interest in regional roleplay and factbooking.
I don’t see why not. Tayrona has originally planned to move there if Tecan moved but decided to stay where Colombia is in the end.
It was the rule and then we NPC'ed ER so players of substantial history and unfortunate circumstance should have a regional vote to decide the fate. The two options being NPC until revival, or removal from map
We cannot remove Rio from the map. He has a special place in the region and the affairs of it so I say he must be on the map like ER if he does not return. Maybe we can reduce his size if it becomes a problem later (after all ER is small) but I say he stays until he returns and if he does not return, he is made NPC.
I always see Rio Cana and Aurea as twins (Rio is the evil twin =P) but where one dies the other will also.
Rio has been as big a part of SA as ER was, so only right he should get the same treatment. If he's not here before the next map update, I'll put to a vote about what the region prefers.
Worth keeping that idea in mind.
All that said, I do think Rio Cana will come back once things settle down in PR.
Tayronans are at the polls today to elect a new president and national congress.
The race is expected to be close between Luis Herrera Montéz of the right-wing, conservative National Front (FRN) and Miguel Serrano Núñez of the centrist, liberal New State (EN). It is considered the first realistic chance to unseat the FRN since it led the overthrow of the communist dictatorship in Tayrona in 1989.
Polls close at 18.00 local time (UTC-5).
News network Noticias24 is projecting victory for National Front candidate Luis Herrera Montéz. Although only 60% of votes are counted, the network is saying that the right-wing, conservative nominee is "gaining an insurmountable lead".
TVT and TVPA are both saying the election is too close to call at this time.
Update 1: Mayor of San Jorge, Lorenzo Padilla Chacón (FRN), said to be "in trouble" in mayoral election. FRN have held the office since 1990.
Update 2: With just over 75% of votes counted, TVPA is projecting Herrera to. The network is saying Herrera will take victory with 50% of the vote to Serrano’s 46%.
Update 3: Luis Herrera Montéz has won the 2018 presidential election. With 80% of ballots counted, Herrera’s lead is over Miguel Serrano Núñez is now insurmountable. Herrera’s victory isn’t perfect, however, as for the first time since the restoration of democracy in 1989, the right-wing, conservative National Front is set to lose its majorities in both chambers of the National Congress.
Prime Minister Charlotte Alban spoke by phone to President-elect Herrera earlier this afternoon. She congratulated him on his victory and added she looks forward to building on the close ties between the two nations.
Finer details of the call have not been released but Neraguan media suspects a NAFTA style deal would have been discussed, as both leaders have publicly stated their support for such.
President Eduard Samper i Milla has extended his best wishes to Luis Herrera Montez. The President of New Catalonia drew criticism when he appeared to make statements supportive of Herrera's rival. Samper steps down as president this year, having decided not to contest the April and May election.
"I extend my congratulations to the President-elect of Tayrona and add that we are looking forward to working with the incoming administration in developing the security and economy of our region."
