How is everyone?

Rushalor wrote:Hello Hawks!

A new week comes with a new batch of friends who have joined our region! Please make sure to greet them everyone! May you be new folk, a returning friends, or simply a puppet nation, we welcome you!

So, hi everyone mentioned above! and hope you are all getting settled in nice and comfy. I feel like you are wondering what to do and how to get started.
Firstly, you may want to join The World Assembly with your main or a puppet nation, and endorse our WA delegate Thrisho.
There is also our discord which is linked in the WFE where you can chat with us more!

There are two options on how to participate in the region:

The first is the reserves. If you want a more laid back way to raid. More details on the dispatch below:

Greetings Hawks!

It is my pleasure to announce the release and immediate implementation of The Black Hawks Reserve program! This is an exciting initiative that the Council of the Hawks has been working on over the last few months and will improve our performance on raids as well as increase the ways that you can contribute to our region!

Sounds interesting, tell me more!

The Reserve Program is designed to reward members of our region who quickly and consistently respond to piling orders. Members score Reserve Points depending on how quickly they follow the posted orders. These points alongside regional activity are used to determine your Reservist Rank!

New ranks?

Yes indeed! Reservists will be granted the ranks of Reservist and Primary Reservist. Primary Reservist is a rank obtainable to those who are active in either the discord and/or rmb communities and pile quickly often, supplying much-needed support to our operations. Primary Reservists will also be given the privilege of access to our nest on discord, where they will be able to further interact with the community they are a part of! Reservists who pile fast and often will be justly rewarded! You also will get to fly exclusive flags designed for the reserve program!

New Flags?

You betcha! All reservists will get to fly special Reserve flags that show their status as a member of our decorated Reserves program! Primary Reservists also get their own special flag that only they can fly, as an honor to their dedication! You can see the flags by clicking the spoiler below!

The Reservist Flag

The Primary Reservist Flag

So who can take part?

Anyone with a nation in The Black Hawks and is currently not an active updating member is eligible for the Reserves. This includes members who are in training or receive the rank of Private! Additionally, formerly active members are more than welcome to join the reserves but will have the collection of Reserve Points frozen if they ever reactivate.

How will this be tracked and collected?

On every operation where we send out regionwide piling orders, we will link a form with which to fill in your piling nation name and nation in The Black Hawks. You won't be able to miss it!

You've sold me! So how do I get started?

Great! To get started, simply fill in this -->Linkform.<-- Your nation name will be tracked in a separate Reserve Program Dispatch with your rank and a cool emblem to link in forum signatures, dispatches or factbooks!

If you have any further questions or issues, please feel free to get in touch with Drexlore!

Read dispatch

Next are the active forces, more involved, fast paced and where a lot of the juicy game mechanics can be utilized. The dispatch below should help you get started.

Hello, and welcome to The Black Hawks!

If you're reading this, we're guessing you're a bit lost on what to do. First of all, relax! Raiding is about you having fun, and you can't do that if you're all stressed and worried. Trust us - we've spent more time doing this "raiding" thing than any other region on NS. What follows is our simple, short, and easy-to read guide to the very very basics of what we do here in The Black Hawks.

"Hey, I just got a message from your region, and followed it. What do I do here?"

First of all, welcome to The Black Hawks! Please, say "hi" on our Regional Message Board, and let us know if you need any more help after reading this guide! You can also feel free to send a telegram to me, Miravana, at any time. The Black Hawks is a region focused on the art of raiding - one of the main forms of military gameplay here on NationStates. If you want to learn a little more about our history, feel free to read this dispatch. or ask a question on the RMB. We also recommend you Linkjoin our discord in order to better interact with our community in real-time. Most importantly though - join the Reserves Program and follow their orders as soon as possible!

"So what is this 'raiding'?"

Here in NS, we've got a "World Assembly", which nations can join, giving them the power to elect regional delegates (among other things). In many regions, these delegates have certain powers over the region, allowing them to do such things as changing the region's appearance and kicking its members out. In short, raiding (also known as invading) is when a bunch of us get together and use this system of delegate elections to elect one of our members as the delegate of another region and then have some fun there. Since a player can only have one nation in the World Assembly, it takes the combined efforts of many of us to seize and hold regions. If we're not careful, the defenders will take them back from us and return them to their original owners!

"Cool, how can I join in?"/"What's this Reserves Program?"

Well, if you just want to be involved on the basic level, there will always be deployment orders posted in the World Factbook Entry at the top of the region page. These are the orders for our Reserves, though you donít have to be accepted yet to follow them. To follow these orders, you should create a second nation (known as a "puppet" nation), join the World Assembly on that nation (and that nation only!), move it to the region linked, and endorse everyone the order says to endorse. To endorse, you click on a nation in the same region as you that is also in the World Assembly, scroll to the bottom of the page, and click the button that says "endorse <nation>." It's important that you do this on a puppet nation so that your main nation can remain here in The Black Hawks, allowing you to keep chatting here, as well as receive future orders! It is essential that this action occurs as soon as possible, or our operations will fall to our enemies! You may have also seen the Reserves Program dispatch linked above. This dispatch provides more information on how to formally join the reserves, gain points for your assistance, and be promoted to our elite Primary Reserves program!

"There's got to be more right?"/"Hey what are these forums and how do I get training?"

Yep! By the time the deployment process begins, our more advanced soldiers have already preliminary seized the region. These more advanced members of the region also perform various stealth and hit-and-run type assaults. The cool thing is, it's not hard to start down the path of joining those ranks! The biggest steps you need to take is registering on Linkour forums and joining Linkour Discord chat server, where we'll connect you with a trainer after you've introduced yourself. Stick with it, and you'll be on the front lines in just days! And if you find it's just not your thing, you can always go back to hanging out in the region and following the deployment orders like everyone else.

Read dispatch

That is all information I have to give you lot for now. Everything else is up to you on how to proceed. Thanks' again for joining us and happy raiding!

Yours truly,
PFC Rushalor
The Black Hawks
