Hi, it's a me again, Novemics, as Slovizem!

Glory to Slovizem, glory to our Tsar!

Don't mind me. Just your resident rogue state passing through. Definitely not Skartok's puppet.

Saint shem

Was six hours too late to prevent a CTE.

I'm also definitely not a Slarvainian puppet for RP reasons.

I'm the evershifting Novemics NS account. Though, this is more appropriate for me given our discord server.


A quick reminder from last year:

All citizens can cast one (1) ballot for the presidency. On it, the name of one candidate. At the end of the voting, votes are tallied and the candidate with the highest number of votes wins. The runner-up becomes one of the two vice presidents. The other vice president will be appointed after the election. That's all you need to know, so let's do this! The sitting president, William Stacey Padmore, is listed first, but after him, candidates are listed in order of party size.

Excellent. I know some people like doing newspaper clippings (In fact, I might do some myself), so I might suggest adding "news articles" as one of the suggested topics in the OP.

It's good to be home. It's really unfortunate that those over in the North Pacific seek to keep regions safe from raiders by destroying our right to self determination.

Since it was the North Pacific it appears like little will be done for recourse. These regions only respond to you if you're over a certain number. Natan encountered this for years.

Any way I'll cleanup and maybe this will happen again in two months.
