Probably a cat. They don't have to go to work. And they get all the attention they want.

Theme Tuesday

On Tuesdays, we give out a theme and see who can fit the theme best!

We have done this for a while on Discord - based on the theme, members of the Discord server change their nicknames and profile pictures to fit. At the end of the day, the Delegate and Officers consult with each other to decide whose picture and name they liked the best out of everyone who participated. Creativity is encouraged! You can join our Discord server here: https://discord.gg/Z3xbVTm

We are also going to run a gameside version this month. You can change your flag, motto or pretitle to fit a theme, and the Delegate and Officers will pick who they think fits the theme best. Make sure to mention me on the RMB so I can see you are participating!



Puzzle Day

Do you consider yourself someone with a high IQ? A great problem solver? A word smith? A Mensa member? Well for all of you brainiacs out there you can put your thinking skills to the test on our Puzzle Days. On these days we will release a puzzle in this dispatch and you'll just have to submit the answers. Don't ruin it for anyone else though! And by the way, the types of puzzles we're talking about are not the jigsaw kind. They're more like word puzzles or codes. There will be some variety week to week like Cryptograms, Sudoku, and more.

Cryptograms are basically coded passages where the true letters of the message were replaced by other letters. The goal is to search for patterns and crack which letters represent which so you can see what the real message is. Here is an example below.

The solution is: Style and structure are the essence of a book; great ideas are hogwash.

Sudoku is a number puzzle wherein there is a 9x9 grid with 3x3 sub grids where the goal is to fill the digits in using 1 through 9 such that each column, each row, and each of the nine 3×3 subgrids that compose the grid contain all of the digits from 1 to 9. Here is an example below.

Boggle is a word game where letters are arranged in a 4x4 grid and you make as many words as you can by connecting adjacent letter tiles. In our Modified Boggle version you will be given the board and you will have to find as many words 6 or more letters that you can. Maybe that sounds hard but this one isn't timed like the original version so you can handle it. Below is an example of how you connect letters in Boggle. The word created is "super".



Card Day

Did you know NationStates has a trading card game? Every time you answer issues, you might get a card pack, which contains trading cards of other nations. On Card Days, we'll give you a theme and to participate, you show us a card you own that fits the theme. (You don't have to already own the card - you can trade for one that fits the theme, too.) Let us know how your card fits the theme - maybe it's the flag, the name, the motto, or maybe you have a really creative explanation!

Also, if you're interested in cards, you might enjoy TRR's own card group, the Discarded League!



Trivia Day

Who doesn't love trivia? It comes in all shapes and sizes and helps you look smart. For all you big brains out there come join us for our Trivia Days and show off all that useless knowledge you have squirreled away in your heads. The categories for a trivia day could be anything really from music (Popmaster), to movies, to history, and everything in between. Most of our trivia activities take place on our Discord server: Linkclick here to join!



Game Day

The Rejected Realms has been known to enjoy various games on discord like Werewolf, Codenames, and Spyfall. On this day every week we'll pick a time to all play together so as many people can join in as possible. Most of our games take place on our Discord server: Linkclick here to join!

Codenames is a word game splitting the group of players into two teams as evenly as possible, Red Team and Blue Team. Each team has a Spymaster and the Spymasters are in charge of giving out the clues. The game board is split into a 5X5 board of cards with words on them. Each card on the board falls into one of 4 categories: a word that red team is trying to guess, a word that blue team is trying to guess, a neutral card, and an assassin card that ends the game and causes the team that guesses it to lose the game.

The Spymasters take turns giving clues that would help their team guess the words they have to in order to win. Clues must be 1 word and not contain any of the words on the board. Clues will also say how many words the clue is for. For example a Spymaster might give the clue Water 2, if its team needs to guess Lake and River on the board. The Spymaster's team, must take at least one guess per round but if it doesn't feel sure about the other words for the clue it can pass the rest of its turn to the next team. If a team guesses as many of their words as the Spymaster numbers in the clue, then that team earns a bonus guess if they so choose. There is no number limit you can give in your clue. First team to guess all its words without uncovering the assassin wins the game.

The game is called Spyfall and how it works is all the players except one are told the secret location out of 20 listed locations. That one person is the spy. Players take turns asking questions to other players that help them to figure out who knows the secret location and who doesn’t. However they must be careful not to be too obvious, because at any time the spy can declare themselves and guess what the secret location is. If they are right, the spy wins! The rest of the players win if the spy guesses wrong or if they open a vote and unanimously determine who the spy is.

Werewolf is a social deduction game also known as Mafia and similar to Town of Salem. At its most basic it pits a team of werewolves who know each other against a team of villagers who do not know who the other villagers are nor do they know who the werewolves are. At the start of the game, each player is secretly assigned a role affiliated with one of these teams. The game has two alternating phases: first, a night role, during which those with night killing powers may covertly kill other players, and second, a day role, in which surviving players debate the identities of players and vote to eliminate a suspect. The game continues until the villagers kill all the werewolves or up until the werewolves outnumber the villagers.

New Events

These are new activities we're trying out this month. If you like the ideas, come join in and help them survive to next month!



Themed Music Night

This one's pretty simple; we're just gonna chill in the Discord server voice chat and listen to music fitting a theme. Send in any music you want that fits the theme!



Puzzle Day - Communal Jigsaws

I've found a site where we can solve jigsaws together (https://jigsawpuzzles.io/). Again pretty simple, I'll post some puzzles and we can work together to solve them!

Read dispatch

The solution to the cryptogram is (spoilering so that if anyone still wants a go they can try :P )

"Have we not eaten while another starved? Will you punish us for that? Will you reward us for the virtue of starving while others ate?" from The Dispossessed, by Ursula K. Le Guin

Congrats to everyone who solved it :D

A lack of coffee it seems. The stingy RO's aren't sharing.

There's always coffee at the bar. Just ask the waiter.

A dinosaur so I’d finally be free of this place

A dog. Specifically a collie, because they’re smart. Dogs just sleep and get fed so that’s a pretty good life.

I don't drink that much coffee, but now that I think about it...

Do they have Wiener Melange?

I'm sure the barista can make you one.

That would be wonderful. I've been cooped up in my apartment and all the cafes are closed. Haven't had a proper Melange since like... November. I don't normally drink coffee but when in Austria... :P

Oh, in Salzburg on the square there's this little cute café, they had good cappuccino there.

I haven't been to Salzburg yet, but it's on the list of places to go once I feel better about traveling. Luckily Vienna offers plenty of cafes too :P there's this cute little place called "Vollpension" (full pension) that's run by a bunch of retirees and has the most delicious homemade cakes. Not to mention excellent coffee.

Sweet! I haven't been to Vienna yet.
There is a place near Primrose Hill here in London which does good cake and coffee too....I just can't remember the name now.

But yes, with lockdown it's just coffee at home and baking my own cakes. Hopefully places will open again soon.

Hi Rejects!

Just thought I'd pop by and remind you about The Bread Box - Ask Sarah any question you may have on your mind

Ever wondered what her favourite ice cream is? Whether she drinks coffee every morning?

The Bread Box is the perfect place to ask all these questions

The Answers will be published in the next issue of TRT
Further information can be found here:

The Bread Box!

Do you have burning NS questions that you absolutely do not want a serious response to? Then you're reading the right dispatch!

TG me A Leaf on the Wind your deepest, darkest NS questions. I may respond back in a sarcastic manner in the next TRT!

Somewhat exhausted. I had to watch online uni lectures for hours, but otherwise I'm fine. I hope you're doing alright. :P

QOTD: I would like to be a dog. No school, no works, just woof woof every day.

Vienna: highly recommended. Doubly so for coffee fanatics.

I was in London once but sadly didn’t get to try any cafes. I remember a really good burger place and also... what’s that market near London Bridge called... of course I forget it now :P
