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, Miss Bad Life Choices, 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 - follow the posted orders as soon as possible!


"So what is this 'raiding' thing?"

Here in NS, we've got a "World Assembly" nations can join, giving them the power to elect regional delegates (among other things). In many region, these delegates have certain powers over the region, allowing them to do such things as change the region's appearance and kick it's 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 'orders' thingy?"

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. 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! When you're deploying, you're acting as the main force of the army, securing our targets, assisting in the cleanup, and defending them from assault by our enemies. It is essential that this action occurs as soon as possible, or our operations will fall to our enemies.


"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.

It was a particularly bright night.

The sun was up, birds were chirping, and Talamaeus Laraxius III, first of his name, emperor of Fyrom was feverishly surveying his domain. The wind swept though the trees, a white poofy cloud floated mindlessly through a bright blue sky... it was surely midnight. A young man of only sixty three, already he had a reputation as a great uniter. It was only a few months ago, when he was fifty seven, that he ventured outside of his mud hut to a small barn in the middle of the woods and proclaimed "You can be in my empire!" And so the story began of this great military and political powerhouse.

The emperor stood just behind one of the boulders on the rocky terrain at the base of of Mount Abandon, his brown linen robe flowed in the breeze, the holes in the lining of the robe, a display of the traditional culture of the realm. Mostly, he was satisfied with the survey today. The one hundred and thirty six large boulders on the eastern slope had, indeed, heeded his warning to seek a permit before moving to a new location; fortunately, the permits had been neither filed nor necessary. It was fortunate because the political and ideological significance of even one boulder being rotated, even slightly, was incalculable to even his wisest sages, crows.

He peered across the top of a boulder, spying one such crow just now. His left eye twitched every now and then, a curse of the tremendous power associated with the majesty of his station. The crow sat in a tree not more than five metres ahead. An adult male, black as day and reasonably groomed. It was making some impossibly loud squawking at least twice a second. Occasionally, it stopped, surely to absorb some of the emperor's own frustration with it as fuel to continue squawking for another few minutes. The emperor furrowed his brow in disgust. By now, his courier field mice must have been throughout the realm to pronounce his edict that day should become night and night day, but lo! This crow acts as though nothing has changed and disregards even basic respect for the laws of Fyrom as it hides behind its *birthright-status* as a imperial sage, well. That ends today.

The emperor reached into a pocket on his robe and withdrew a bag that seemed too large to be able to fit. It was made of buckskin, as deer were enemies of the state for not consulting him on a standard number of horn points. The bag was tied shut with hair. Lots of hair. A small black cord extended out of the side of the bag. The emperor held the bag up and positioned the cord between his eyes. In the old days, before things were ruined by one of the eastern slope stones deciding to shift position, his stern look and strong reputation alone would have set this cord alight. Certainly it had happened only once before, but Talamaeus Laraxius never forgets. He produced a small tinderbox from the linings of his robe. The emperor's robes always contained the precise materials needed for his success because he only left his fortified earthen palace for highly specific reasons and only with the latest scouting reports from his spying turnip.

The emperor ducked behind the boulder and sat down in the small rocks interspersed with grass. These rocks were not enumerated because they were only allowed ninety-day tourism visas. He got to work preparing a fire from sticks and brush. After a moment, he popped his head back over the boulder to gaze upon his enemy. It stopped squawking, if only for moment. They long stared into each other's eyes, at least four seconds. The passion, burning. The hatred, mutual. Bored, the crow looked away and began to squawk again. The emperor sat back down and resumed working, muttering to himself about the rule of law. A flame formed in the box. He set the black cord of the bag to the fire and it began to smoke and sizzle.

"Night isn't a time for crowing," said the emperor. "It's a time for sleeping!" He roared as he threw the leather bag over the boulder at the winged fiend. The bag exploded in air, as bright and red-hot as it was terrible and great. The tree was engulfed in flame and the hundreds of leaves began crackling as water turned to steam inside their living cells. At the base of the tree, the crow lay motionless. It was now asleep. It was very, very, very asleep. It was also on fire, but the edict had been enforced, and that was what mattered most. All creatures in the realm would learn something this day:

Order would reign, thanks to Talamaeus Laraxius III, the great emperor of Fyrom.

Hi. I got addicted to MOE for like 4 years, and got my fill of raids over there. Can I hang out if I have no aspirations to become a raider? I just think you're a cool group. :)
