Sad to hear, some great history there

Sorry I suppressed a post by accident, not sure how.

Oops did it again, stupid phone.

Well, Hello I guess! Sorry for busting in on your conversation, though i'm not entirely sure how this game works.

At last! Seven months after the last average lifespan increase of a year, we've hit that mark again! The average lifespan in my nation is now 24 years.

At this rate, I should reach the real-world average in another 28 years or so.

Real world you say? 🤔

This is interesting. So what you are saying is that you currently have the life span that characters in the biblical world had. Consider women gave birth at age 12-14 and by 22 were old brooms and grandmothers.

Unfortunately. And yet scientific advancement is ridiculously advanced. I'm just going to postulate that my people are all aliens with a very short lifespan. Hmm, maybe they're Tau? That fits.

No, that is a misunderstanding of how averages work. The average lifespan wasn't that low because everyone died in their 20s, it was that low because the majority of babies died before the age of 5. If out of 10 children, one lives to be 40, another 60, another 80, and the rest dies at age 5, the average lifespan of those 10 is 21½.

Greetings

We are a group of 5 regions: Wysteria, Texas, Canada, Yggdrasil & 10000 Islands who hold games once in a blue moon
and from time to time we enjoy inviting new regions to join us.

The Games are fun with role playing flare.

They were created to strength relations with the regions involved and in away to let nations mingle while their athletes fight each other.

Since The Heartland is an old alliance of both Wysteria & Texas we are issuing - as always - an invitation (normally via the delegate but I noticed east klent left).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If any of you might be interested in taking part, It would be great if you'll contact me via TG.

The games are planned for early 2018 (Jan) but since The Heartland is rather sleepy - I thought Ill give 'a head' notice.

The delegate for the past 112 days Crystal Palais is listed at the top of the region 🙈

The delegate is kind of remiss in his duties, sadly, outside of WA stuff. Though I never got any telegrams about that, I'm not quite sure what to do about such things?

Also my death rate in March was 705 and now that it's August it's under 400. Lifespan's still only 24.5 years though, but it seems to be increasing a bit faster.

Statistics are weird.

Hi, just wanted to pop into your region to ask everyone to please vote AGAINST the current Security Council resolution on the floor of the WA, repealing "Commend Texas". It is a direct assault on peaceful, defender regions by raiders. If you haven't already voted, please help to strike down this resolution. Thank you.

Definitely voted against that one, yep. Even if Texas hadn't done anything, it doesn't invalidate what had been done, but it's a pretty obvious and blatant thing.

Hellooo

Hello there!

Hello!

Hello stranger.

I prefer oddbodkin to stranger

So what’s up around here?

I'll just add my hello to the howdy chain! (But I have no idea what's up around here since I'm the worst... ;) )

*Places a bowl of Kit Kat® bars on the table.*

Sup?

Greetings!
